Why Patricia Dole chose Opihihale

As buyers our initial impression was "Now this is Hawaii", over 12 years our hearts have found a true island home. We love it here.

What makes this estate unique

When we first started renting, we set out a journal for guests to log some basic feedback. After taking in the heartfelt stories people were writing about their experiences down here, its clear we have been helping visitors realize their dreams and experience once in a life time events. 50th wedding anniversaries, vow renewals, family reunions, last hurrahs are just a few examples. The Blue Roof is more than part of a vacation, its part of a bucket list.

Beautiful Hawaii Retreat for Family and Friends

  • 5 of 5

Great space and amenities for a group of family and/or friends. There is a beautiful large kitchen and large dining area. The pool and hot tub are excellent. There are multiple outdoor lanais to choose your favorite view of the coastline and pacific ocean. It is a bit out of town, but not too far from some of the best snorkeling in the State and brings you closer to a nice day trip to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Lots of parking if there are multiple vehicles in your party.

Loved our vacation in the Blue Roof house

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a vacation at the Blue Roof house and had a wonderful time. The location is remote and private, the home is beautifully appointed, and the view can't be beat. We enjoyed cooking in the large well appointed kitchen and dining with our friends in the spacious dining room. We especially enjoyed having coffee each morning overlooking the ocean and cocktails each evening while enjoying stunning sunsets. It was a great place to enjoy with our friends as each room is equipped with a queen or king sized bed so no couple had to "slum it" in twin beds. We'd definitely recommend it!

Perfect Place for an Incredible Hawaiian Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This house has everything! From the breathtaking views of the Pacific, to the spacious and upgraded beautiful home, to the remote and serene location - it was hard to leave and explore the island! My family came together to celebrate my parents' 45th wedding anniversary, and the backyard was the perfect place for them to renew their vows and their love for one another! When we were able to pull ourselves away, there were beaches and towns nearby. The icing on the cake were the daily whale sightings, the dolphins, wild goats, and the most gorgeous sunsets I have every seen. The "Blue Roof House" won't disappoint!

A Magical Place!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from an amazing vacation at "The Blue Roof". An amazing home, in amazing surroundings this vacation home is a must see!! Hearing for whales in the morning and enjoying the most amazing sunsets at night, this house has something for everyone. A short drive away from the home is Hookena beach. Undoubtly one of the most amazing beach experiences ever. Whether swimming with dolphins, or exploring coral reefs this will be a beach day you will never forget. We highly recommend "The Blue Roof".

Enjoying nature with all the amenities

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful house was a wonderful place for our family to come together and celebrate the holidays and a special anniversary for us. Everything was as it was pictured and more. Even though it was some distance from many activities, one does need a car, but it was not a hardship to drive to them . After sight-seeing, snorkeling, swimming, etc., it was the perfect site to prepare a meal, relax in the pool/Jacuzzi, star gaze and enjoy each other's company and the quietness of the area. The sunsets and the views are breathtaking. The Farmer's Market at The Greenwell Botanical Center was a great place to buy local produce and an event in and of itself. We definitely would recommend this house for families and have done so already.

The Big Island is a great outdoor adventure destination. No where else on the planet can you see and do what you can here. And of course there's more than enough companies advertising air tours, volcano tours, reef snorkeling, dolphin swims, charter boats and so on. Try contacting an activity agent to assist in finding and scheduling the right excursion for you. It's the least time consuming way as opposed to calling up a bunch of companies one by one.
