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 Hawaiian Paradise Park
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

Spectacular ocean front stay
The Shangrila is truly a vacation home! The location is wonderful and the layout of the property is both beautiful and private. Both the inside and the outside of the house provide beautiful views. We utilized the outside space day and night as the covered patio was wonderful for morning coffee, meals and evening relaxing. I do love the pool and open area as well! The living room and kitchen still provide the view of the sky and ocean where even doing the dishes was enjoyable! The house itself was neat, clean, and beautifully decorated. Sterling (and Charlena) were very accommodating and accessible. Do get up early because the sunrise is breathtaking!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property. No disappointments! Easy access and one floor made life very comfortable for an older couple but any family group would love it . Incredibly well equipped kitchen and well furnished overall. Really appreciated the AC in the bedrooms and comfortable Tempur-pedic beds! Lots of good flat walking and marvellous pool and hot tub. We would not hesitate to return.
well equipped home
This is our second time visiting this home. The kitchen is well equipped with everything you need. Love hearing the waves crash on the lava at night. Wouldn't hesitate to stay here again. The welcome goodies were much appreciated!
We stayed at this property (2 families) and absolutely loved it. Never tired of sitting on the back deck watching waves. It is in a quiet neighborhood but the people out walking were very friendly. The house was amazing and came equipped with everything we needed. Grocery trips weren't too far and it was so lovely to be able to leave the hustle and bustle behind us as we drove to this gorgeous home. We had a fabulous time and a lot of that was due to our vacation rental. If we come back we will look for availability here first!!!

This is a beautiful house and property! The waves crashing into the lava rocks below the pool were amazing and we were able to see whales and dolphins right from the property. We enjoyed watching the sun come up from the covered hot tub every morning. The house is very well equipped, the kitchen is very nice, and the beds were very comfortable.
The only thing that went wrong for us was not at all the fault of the property. We were quite unlucky with the weather and had a lot of rain. Having said that, the house was very comfortable for spending time in to enjoy a nice meal and a movie.
Beautiful home and setting for R&R.
Close to dining and activities and the house was very quiet and peaceful. So best of all!
