About Sterling Dorje

As a college student of 19 I found myself on Oahu (I was from Philadelphia) visiting Hawaii for the first time during the Vietman war. At that moment I knew Hawaii was someday to be my home, Maybe it had to do with the ice storm I left back home. I applied with United Airlines and moved out to Chicago, then to L.A. I flew for United for 27 yrs. around the world. Nothing came close. Hawaii was to be my destiny ! I married a very interesting man from Tibet 15 yrs. later and eventually we found a place to call home in Hawaii. We both lived out of a suitcase doing international business together and traveling the world. Now we sell 'memories of a lifetime' and enjoy meeting people from all over the world

Sterling Dorje purchased this house in 2003

Why Sterling Dorje chose Keaau

Living and working in Hawaii is the best you can get ! Sharing our world with our guests brings us much satisfaction. We love our island and the people who make it great. There is nothing like Oceanfront property.. they are not making any more of it..except at Volcano National Park.

What makes this house unique

Outrageous ! The waves, the whales, the pool on the edge of the ocean, the fresh air you breathe in looking down on the crashing waves below. NOTHING LIKE IT ! Now it is TOTALLY GREEN WITH SOLAR HEATED SALT WATER POOL, TOTALLY SOLAR ELECTRIC

Fantastic property for getaway at a very reasonable price!

  • 5 of 5

Amenities were outstanding, everything was labeled very well, the hot tub and pool were kept up and the backyard view was amazing.

The location was perfect for us, it gave us the ability to go between multiple locations and see much of the island within a 30 min drive.

The perfect honeymoon location

  • 5 of 5

An amazing property with everything we could want for an amazing final destination for our honeymoon in Hawaii.

The patio area with hot tub and pool right next to the ocean is so well laid out, we spent most of our time outside relaxing by the pool and we also got to see the amazing sea turtles along with a few colourful native lizards and the infamous coqui frog. The view and sound of the crashing waves will be something we will always remember.

The rest of the house is also amazing, the kitchen is so well laid out, a massive fridge and all the utensils you would need, a well-appointed lounge area and beds that are so comfortable.

We got unlucky with the weather preventing us from doing some of our planned activities but having this home as our base more than made up for this, at some point in the future we would love to return to Hawaii and this will be the first place we look for as a place to stay.

Beautiful home, property and views! Stunning and relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

The house was absolutely gorgeous... everything the photos promised and more! Kitchen was well appointed... everything we needed. The rooms were spacious, clean and updated beautifully. We used the ohana suite to make room for our two families to come together.. giving us plenty of comfortable spaces. The patio, pool and hot tub were beautiful and allowed time to simply relax and enjoy the view and watch turtles in the surf, or play in the pool or enjoy a great meal together on the lanai.

Great location to go north to explore waterfalls or south (if the volcano area had been open!) or central to climb Mauna Kea!

We would return in a heartbeat!

Amazing property

  • 5 of 5

The oceanfront property is beautiful and the view of the water took our breaths away everyday. We enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi while watching waves which had some turtles. The house was clean and had everything we needed and any appliance that broke was repaired in a timely matter. It was exactly what we were looking for a relaxing vacation. We will definitely stay again!!

Sterling and Trisha, thank you the pleasant experience and sharing your beautiful home.

Beautiful views from lanai

  • 4 of 5

Owner was kind enough to let us use this House when the other one we had rented was shut down by government due to volcanic eruption.

Beautiful views from lanai,very nice and really warm sea water pool .Great grill for bbq outside on the lanai .back yard was even more beautiful at night when pool lights came on,tiki torches light and the sky in horizon became red from lava flows.

At that time we didn't smell or noticed anything wrong with air due to eruption.

Seen turtles in the water just across the fence from the pool .
