About Morris or Yuka

We love the Big Island, the best of all the islands in Hawaii. There are so many things you can enjoy on this island: beautiful stars, beaches, Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, snow atop Mauna Kea and tropical fruits all year. We love to meet people who visit from all over the world.

Morris or Yuka purchased this house in 1982

Why Morris or Yuka chose Keaau

Hawaiian Paradise Park is located near the city of Hilo, and Keaau. The climate is warm and it does not rain as much in this area which is close to the ocean, as compared to the higher elevations. The home is located in a rural community where the living is peaceful and easy. Since the property is zoned as agricultural, we have lots of land to garden, harvest fruit and flowers from the many trees and plants growing in this heavenly place.

What makes this house unique

Everything is very close to this location. Just a few minutes drive North or South to the multitude of visitor attractions and convenience to shopping, restaurants, entertainment, medical care and parks.
