My great grandparents traveled from Portugal to the Hawaiin Islands and settled in Maui in the late 1800s. I was born in Maui and reared in Oahu. I went to Farrington High School and graduated when I was 17. I was married the same yr. and also had my first child. By the time I was 21, I had 4 children. I moved to San Diego in 1960, remarried and had my 5th child. I went into Real Estate sales in San Diego and sold RE for 20 yrs. By that time I had several rentals and retired from RE and lived off the income of my rentals. It was hard work but it paid off in time.
Why Bill chose Opihihale
My husband Gary loved fishing and when we went to Kona for a vacation, he fell in love with it. We wanted to build our home here, so we looked for a lot. We both wanted to be by the ocean, however, it was slim pickings finding a lot on the ocean or by the ocean. We heard about Kona Paradise from a Realtor who showed us our lot. We were so excited because not only was it ocean front but it also was a swimming beach. It is very rare in Kona to have a beach that you can walk into and swim or snorkel without having to cross over sharp lava rocks.
What makes this House unique
It is so wonderful to just sit and listen to the waves washing thru the pebbles on the beach. In the winter time when the surf high, it is such a beautiful sight to see the large waves crashing down on the beach. I love watching the whales as they go by to settle in the coves south of us and birth their calfs before going back up north. I also love to see the dophins that come and visit our cove. My huband and I would anchor our boat in the cove and then go fishing. Just a few miles out we would catch a lot of fish that we'd share with our wonderful friends and nieghbors. Kona Paradise is truly paradise.
Sports & Adventure Activities
Great house on the beach
We had a great time at this oceanfront home.
We had such a wonderful time in your house. Spent most or the time on the lanai. The snorkeling at the beach was great. A couple of places close by to snorkel also. The area is away from any crowds. Will be back again.
Would come back again for sure!
This property has everything you need. The kitchen is equipped with more utensils and bowls and knick knacks than my own kitchen has. There is tons of information about where to eat, shop, and activities to do that the owners have printed out. There are plenty of sheets and towels. Basic essentials such as soap, trash bags, laundry detergent are all provided. The house is slightly outdated but super clean, warm and welcoming. It feels like home! Theres even a picture book with the photos of the house being built. There are a few sets of snorkel gear. Some work great, some definitely need replaced. There are boogie boards, coolers, noodles, and swim shoes galore. The beds are comfy. There are ceiling fans in the rooms and a few oscillating fans, more would have been appreciated. There isn't A.C. and it does get a little warm mid afternoon and evening. There is drinkable water but it tasted a little like plastic so we opted to buy water bottles. The grill outside is one of the only complaints we have. It was filthy. We had planned on grilling but chose to pan cook our meat instead. It was beautiful and relaxing eating out on the Lanai. Also just sitting out there. The ocean waves are peaceful and constant. The Lanai is huge. And has seating for over 15 people. The furniture and cushions outside are in excellent condition. Very comfy. The beach is a pebble beach. It could be difficult to walk on if you have issues getting around. The current can be strong and there are no life jackets provided so if you're planning on lots of swimming here you need to be experienced. We did snorkel here but only saw a few fish. Much better snorkeling at beaches near by. The drive down to the house isn't bad but it is steep. We had a 4x4 vehicle but it wasn't necessary to get down or up. When we first arrived, there was a note on the fridge about bugs which freaked me out (ants, cock roaches, geckos). We kept our food put up and the kitchen clean though and never saw anything but cute little geckos and just a couple ants in the house! Thankfully!
Overall this place is loaded with everything you need. It's cozy, clean, and oceanfront. When communicating with the owners they responded fast and seemed very nice. We would stay here again for sure. We enjoyed our time and it was a one of a kind experience!
Truly what they mean by Paradise.
The location good not be any better if you like being near the ocean and hearing the waves. The kayaking and snorkeling are the reason we come and never, never are disappointed. This home is immaculate, beautiful and the ONLY complaint I have is the lack of large glasses for the wonderful tropical juices to be found. We will be back and I will bring a large glass.
Amazing home, location and beach!
This place was amazing. We had our trip planned for 9 months and I was dreaming what this trip would be like and nothing compares than being there in person. The house had everything we needed. You can hear the ocean from every room in the house and the views are amazing. I could just sit on the lanai all day. My husband did lots of fishing and snorkeling right at the beach. Our daughter went swimming several times each day. A great path to walk and see more sites by the house. All beds were very comfortable and the kitchen had everything you would ever need. Great restaurants that are within 10-15 minutes as well and a grocery store about 20 mins up the road that we visited. This place is top notch and our family will be back! Great people to work!. Thanks for letting us visit your home!
We stayed here for a week for our honeymoon. We loved the house and the amazing views!
We really enjoyed our week long stay in this home. It is right on Pebbles Beach which offers some really amazing sights and sounds. The beach is quite literally just large pebbles. This is a bit hard to walk on, but makes a really pretty and unique sound when the waves roll out and all the pebbles roll with the water. The water here is a bit aggressive, but there are regular divers, swimmers and kayakers entering the ocean at this beach. The house is the very last home down the hill. The hill is quite steep, though not treacherous. There is a nice walking path from the beach along the coast a way.
The home is well maintained and had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. In the week, we only ate out twice. We ate the rest of our meals at the house and really enjoyed cooking and eating together. The lanai is really big, with three tables on it, a lot of chairs, and a glorious view of the ocean and the sunsets in the evening. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the lanai. The bugs are there, but so are the cute little geckos eating the bugs. The house had some bug spray and some citronella candles on the lanai to help with the bugs.
There are many sets of fins and goggles and snorkels for those wishing to snorkel. There are also a lot of water shoes and ice chests for guests to use.
The full size washer and dryer are quite nice. The owners provide laundry detergent, fabric softener, dish detergent, bottled water, an extensive first aid kit and emergency kit in case of evacuation. There are plenty of inside towels, beach towels, extra linens, and paper products. All the basic cooking supplies, spices, oils, teas, and coffee are there. Both bathrooms had shampoo, conditioner and body wash available.
We enjoyed finding the owner's photo album showing how they made the home after they purchased the empty lot in 1991.
The master bed was comfortable. We didn't use the other rooms since we were there just the two of us.
There are a few movies and games in the living room.
The house is a bit far from Kailua-Kona area. It took about 45 to 55 minutes to drive to the downtown area. It is pretty close to Ho'okena Beach Park which we enjoyed quite a lot. This is a sandy beach with good snorkeling, warm showers on the beach and a place where a lot of local families come to enjoy the beach.
Walk the historic Kings Trail - steps from the house.
