About the property

Huge Custom Beach Home, Incredible Views, Handicap Friendly! Sleeps 6. Beautiful

For all of you who are “on-the-fence” about where to stay in Hawaii, we would like to share some important things to consider.

When it comes to airfare, renting a car, food, gas and misc. expenses, everyone who ventures out to Hawaii will pretty much pay the same price. The real difference is the lodging. A lot of people overlook this important decision and often find themselves having a sub par vacation based on where they ended up staying. 'We get it! ' You thought that you would save a few bucks, however, the few bucks that you saved on paper did

nothing to ultimately enhance your trip.

That's where Simple Pleasures makes a difference.

For the value, we offer a clean, comfortable and elegant accommodation that will absolutely enhance your stay in Hawaii.

We invite you to view our photos and video to see the difference.

We are offering the Penthouse level of our 5,000 sq. ft recently finished Beach home starting at $175.00. You get the top floor, 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, huge penthouse suite that sleeps 5. All of our amenities are clean, custom and brand new! The rest of the house is officially closed, which means no other people will stay in this Huge Home or on the property while you are there. Lastly, this Hawaiian Palace is only a 5 min. walk to the beach! What more can we say? it is a fantastic deal. Please compare our photos and videos with others on the site. Our aim is to get it right, and make sure our guests are happy.

If this makes sense to you please read on and get more details. Aloha! Simple Pleasures.

Our official Property Description

From the start, the concept behind this truly majestic build was very clear, tastefully work with the land, capture its essence, and “Keep it Simple.”

The Hawaiian Islands are simply one of the world’s most desirable locations, truly a tropical paradise beyond compare. A perfect fit for a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a once in a lifetime dream. With that said, we warmly offer our personal contribution to the islands by launching our most beautiful creation to date, “Simple Pleasures”.

Situated approximately 45 minutes south of Kailua- Kona, Simple Pleasures is close enough to partake in all of Kona’s nightlife yet far enough away to marinate in a real feeling of authentic Hawaiian lifestyle. Once you set foot on the property, it will be obvious that your new Hawaiian home was the right choice. This freshly finished 2012 custom home is easily on par with the highest of high-end resorts, but at nearly half the cost.

Our “ Plumeria Lined Paradise”, a five minute walk to the beach, not only offers some of the most magnificent ocean views, but our guests will appreciate the natural breezes from the Hawaiian trade winds lufting through our 16ft ceilings. Luxurious stone floors were thoughtfully placed in all common areas to ensure our guests keep cool. The full size custom bathrooms, made of both stone and marble, enjoy upgraded touches such as custom cabinets, vessel sinks and bidets to enhance your experience. For the utmost comfort, each bedroom has been outfitted with luxury hotel grade queen size pillow-top mattresses, finished off with mahogany sleigh bed frames. Additionally, the bedrooms include mahogany hardwood floors, your own private bath, wireless internet, and safe deposit boxes. Our tastefully executed kitchen, designed to be a “social kitchen”, places the cook in a position that faces the entire living room, lanai and all guests while preparing meals whether dining indoors or using the formal dining table outdoors on the lanai. Last but not least, the crown jewel of Simple Pleasures is our 1,000-sq.ft ocean facing lanai. You can easily see 40 miles of spectacular coastline views in each direction! It really equates to being the ultimate outdoor living room on the property. This is where all the sunsets, whale watching and outdoor socializing happens. Whether it is a glass of wine, reading a book, or stretching out on the 8ft. daybed, this spot is all Hawaii. From our vantage point, the mixture of fresh floral air mixed with the tranquil ocean breeze cannot be put into words. This is truly a space to be experienced. With this much space, we also created an outdoor “dining room”. This was brilliant! With million dollar views, this is the perfect spot for our guest to gather and have breakfast before a day of site seeing, lunch after snorkeling at the beach or a beautiful backdrop for a romantic dinner at sunset. It doesn’t get any better.

Simple Pleasures to us means, “seamless harmony”. Understanding that your Hawaii vacation means everything to you and trips like this don’t happen everyday, our focus was to anticipate your needs and exceed your expectations.

We thank you for considering us and wish you nothing but Aloha, and remember,

“Keep it Simple”!

Ahhhh, amazing beautiful perfect!

  • 5 of 5

What an amazing place! My sister and I loved everything about it. I wish we hadn't spend so much time driving around and just stayed in the area and on the deck. I am still going back in my mind to sitting on the deck (lanai?) looking out at the sun and the moon on the ocean to keep that peaceful feeling going just a bit longer. We were nervous the first trip down the road but we figured out how to get the car into a lower gear and then it was smooth sailing and became kind of fun! It's a nice neighborhood and we met some of the people who live there, one actually took us into his home to show us around. There was plenty of wild life including bugs, pigs, mongoose and geckos which made it even better for me since it felt like we were in the real Hawaii not a sanitized version. The home was clean and pretty and the bed sheets were divine! It was perfect for us and I would go there yearly if I could. I wish I was there right now! Thanks so much to the owners for making your home feel like it was ours if only for 11 days! Catherine and Diane

Tastefully and beautifully appointed with all you may need at your fingertips. After weeks of traveling for work, this was exactly the respite I needed. I'll definitely be back!

Paradise, the real one. Enjoyed every day there.

  • 5 of 5

Every word from all those five stars reviews below is true. This place is wonderful, the view is breathtaking (as promised :-)), the location is prime and secluded, exactly as I dreamed of. Mike and Lisa's house is beautiful, clean, well maintained, and has everything you need for a great relaxing vacation.

Do not be intimidated by the downhill road to the house, it's not that steep. We drove it on a showery night and had no problems (rented 4 wv).

The ocean view from the living room and lanai is awesome. I practically lived on the lanai, day-dreaming and reading there when we were not traveling around the island. Having electrical grill helped with cooking. We mostly ate at home (bought groceries on our way from Kona airport).

We loved Pebble Beach down the road. It's not your regular quiet sandy lagoon, but more wild, genuine and secluded. We hardly saw other people there, and mostly had it all for ourselves and enjoyed snorkeling. There is also King'sTrail on both sides of the beach for those who loves hiking.

Advice: if you love to be in the middle of civilization, would like to have restaurants and shopping right next to your porch, prefer to have people around, then Simple Pleasure is NOT your place. Book a condo in Kailua-Kona , you will be happy there. If you need to get away from it all, relax, and have the whole ocean for yourself, Simple Pleasure is your best choice ever. And it's very close to the greatest adventures on the island, like Volcano National Park, kayaking to Captain Cook or snorkeling on the best beaches. We had it all :-)

Mike and Lisa, thank you so much for sharing your wonderful place with us. We came back just yesterday but it was such a great trip that I'm already planning a new one :-)

Amazing views

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed here for the month of February 2017. It was very relaxing which is exactly what we were looking for. The deck is furnished nicely and the perfect spot to read, talk and listen to music. There are also a variety of activities close by if that is what you are looking for. The views are the some of the most amazing we have ever experienced on a vacation. You won't fully appreciate them until you see them in person. We did most of our cooking at the home and purchased most of our food from the local grocery store in Captain Cook. They have about everything you need and are about 20 minutes away. Several times we used the grill on the deck to cook dinner. What a great place to have your happy hour, see the sunset and then cook and eat dinner. Even when cooking in the kitchen (which is provisioned nicely) you still experience the views & the Hawaiian atmosphere. The home is set up nicely with the driveway, and the main floor (bedrooms, kitchen & living room) on the same level. The wood used to construct the home is beautiful. The local beach is very nice but you will need your beach shoes as the sand mostly consisted of small peebles and the waves could be a little rough. There is another nice beach about 15 minutes away called Ho'okena which has nicer sand and is a little calmer for water activities. If you are looking for shopping or restaurants Kona and Ali's Drive are probably the closest place and are just under an hour away. There are many other sites to see close to the home. You can find these listed in the travel book provided in the home. We did visit Volcano National Park which is a must in our opinion but allow a long day to see all of this. We also visited Hilo and the north east coast on the other side of the island. These were beautiful but we decided we preferred the sunny west side of the island. One more tourist attraction to mention is the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach Park near the south tip of the island and the Punalu'u Bake Shop on the way. The beach almost always has the large green sea turtles and the bake shop has some nice baked goods, ice cream and sandwiches. You should also have a breakfast of lunch at the Coffee Shack on Rt 12. We will come back again. Mike and Lisa work hard to maintain the property and provide a great place to visit...thanks.

Aloha, We have spent many vacations on the Big Island, but we never have had such a relaxing time as we had at Simple Pleasures. Great Views and Great Access to all of the big Island.

Mahalo!
