About Tina Wilkinson

We are a couple in our mid to late fifties who love to travel. We enjoy being outdoors in the sunshine and spending time with our two little grandchildren.

Tina Wilkinson purchased this house in 2011

Why Tina Wilkinson chose Opihihale

We love Hawaii and the slow lifestyle it affords after living such a fast paced life on the mainland.

What makes this house unique

This is the perfect home for a large family, plenty of space and a large la'nai for outdoor activities.

Beautiful house with everything that you could ever need in the kitchen and Treger Smoker awsome

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful house with everything you would every need to enjoy your stay on the Big Island. One hour from Kona and two hours from Heelo makes it very centralized. I would have a talk with the neighbor two houses down who enjoyed having his dog bark and wake us up every morning at 6:30 AM. Other than that I would recommend this beautiful house to anyone without reservation.

Beautiful house!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house- inside and out. The view is gorgeous. We really appreciated how stocked it was with beach toys (boogie boards, snorkel gear, coolers). If you want a house away from the hustle and bustle of life, this is perfect! It is about a 45 minute drive to Kona, but there are several good snorkel beaches and places to visit nearby.

An immaculate home with a sunset view over the pacific

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I shared this home for two weeks in January/February using it as a central point for visiting other areas on the Big Island. Reasonably priced, spacious, clean, and a great kitchen, there was little to need for our creature comforts. The primary bathrooms had their own full baths, and the breezes and fans cooled us at night. With our rental car we toured the area between Kona and the National Volcano Park snorkeling, hiking, birdwatching, photography, fishing, volcano tripping, historical stops, and a myriad of things to get involved with. Good hiking trails right there at Pebble Beach along the ocean and the crashing waves into the rocks. Sunsets and starry skies off the deck were special times to relax and forget the rest of the world. We simply did not have enough time to see everything we wanted to see. One is a little far from goods and services, but when compared to home, there is not a lot of difference except for the higher food prices in Hawaii. Tina has a really great place to stay and we need to go back to see the things we missed.

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

What a beautiful home, location and property. We had a lovely time with our whole family and their was plenty of room for everyone! The lovely kitchen was well stocked with all the utensils we needed for cooking. The deck was a great place to hang out and our grandkids enjoyed watching the geckos! Many things to see and do on the Big Island. We enjoyed the many beaches and our adult children loved the snorkeling. Even swam with dolphins on one of the many beaches and we saw many turtles. We had a fabulous two week stay and wished we could have stayed longer. Thank you Tina for letting us stay in your gorgeous home.

What a wonderful stay in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our experience was wonderful! The atmosphere, the home, and the company present was more than we could have imagined. The place is beautiful (very spacious - perfect for multiple families sharing a home)! It's stocked with so much and more... the kids had snorkel equipment, beach gear (boogie boards), sand playing tools. The adults has beach chairs, sun screen, bug repellent... you name it. Thank you, Tina and family! Pebble Beach is just 1/2 mile down the mountain, and we stumbled upon what seemed to be our own private black sand beach as well (just a ways down from Pebble Beach)! The view from the two rooms in the back of the house is Ocean view - perfect for whale watching and dreaming. The sky was beautiful at nights, and the neighbors were friendly - everyone we met. The neighborhood cats were even a treat to our party of 10. Hawaii owes us nothing and this is large in part due to our wonderful accommodations. Thanks again to you Tina, for always answering my questions and providing tip top customer service. To all who come after us, remember that having transportation is a must! We visited Volcano and Kona many times throughout the week which were all at least a 30 minute drive or more away. Also, the house is nestled on a steep mountain - perfect for the quiet, family oriented, adventurous type of vacation. We got our exercise daily by just walking down to the beach (we usually drove back up to the house)! Enjoy your time - future guests that come next! Thank you for offering this home for rental. The pictures posted are an accurate portrayal - but doesn't do the place justice. This was our first trip to Hawaii but it won't be our last! Mahalo!

It was an awesome view!!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time. The home was so comfortable!!!! We found that the sliders down stairs and one bathroom door upstairs needs attention. The fan in the laundry room and the one by the bar were not working well. Other than that, we had a blast!!! Hope we can do it again. Tom and Marcia Gaura
