About Aki and Laura Lintunen
We fell in love with the Big Island in 2000 and built Hale E Komo Mai in 2011. Now we are building new memories with our family, friends, and especially our grandchildren. We look forward to coming back to Hawaii each year while continuing to explore this vast and beautifully diverse island.
Aki and Laura Lintunen purchased this Estate in 2011
Why Aki and Laura Lintunen chose Hawaiian Paradise Park
We are excited to share our 'impractical dream' with you, with a relaxing home to return to after a full day of activities and exploring. You will be surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation and a peaceful neighborhood. We looked at many areas on the Big Island and chose Hawaiian Paradise Park for its acreage that provides quiet and privacy, while still being central to the ocean, trails, parks, restaurants and nearby shopping.
What makes this Estate unique
A unique and modern home designed with covered walkways that connect all areas. Impressive lava rock columns, circular planter with seating, and an outstanding outdoor shower were all hand shaped by a local craftsman. The home maximizes light and captures the trade winds and breezes, with sweet scents drifting indoors from the professionally landscaped gardens. The home is large, yet very comfortable for a couple or a large family. The grassed yard is great for the kids to play, to have a game of bocci ball or croquet, or to just relax on the lounge chairs while enjoying all the tropical trees, fruit trees and scented plants and flowers.

Large Comfortable Home on a Huge Lot in a Suburb of Hilo
We really enjoyed our stay at this lovely spacious home in a Hilo suburb. It is about 30 minutes outside central Hilo, so this house is not for people who want to be close to shops and restaurants. There are many major chain stores within a half hour drive and some smaller local stores 15-20 min away. If you stock up on groceries and enjoy cooking, this is the rental for you. They had more spices than we have at home and every cooking utensil you could ask for. We bought steaks and boneless chicken breasts and grilled on the BBQ outside and it was divine. This home is also closer to Volcano National Park than anywhere in Hilo, so if you plan to go there, this home will be convenient. Its also really close to the area where the lava flows into the ocean if you are interested in that hike. We explored Hilo, Volcano National Park, Waimea, Mauna Kea, and Waipio Valley during our stay, so we were pretty active. The house itself is very spacious and could easily hold 6 people. The yard is huge--my son played soccer with my husband and the kids played with a frisbee. At night, the only thing I didn't like was the wildlife noise. Frogs, crickets, and birds made quite a ruckus. But nothing that my earplugs wouldn't block out. There were coolers available for day trips, a fridge stocked with condiments, a large washer dryer, lots of towels, and fans in every room which were needed since there's no AC. Overall we really enjoyed our stay. Thanks so much!
Beautiful and comfortable and spacious with smiling, helpful staff. A perfect place for our family 100th birthday gathering of 10. The open floor plan, the big lanai, and spacious grounds accommodated both a wheelchair and a walker. The amply furnished kitchen and many places to sit and gather made for a congenial afternoon. The birthday was the reason for the trip to Hawaii and the house helped to make it an unforgettable success.
We slept 7 adults there and the almost perfect part comes from one bed (there are 4 more that are very nice) that is an airbed that loses air during the night so we used the couch instead. The neighbor and caretaker was instantly there to troubleshoot and he - and even his wife - went beyond expectation to make us happy. I recommend this property most enthusiastically as long as you don't need or don''t mind the soft to softer sleeping surface of the airbed. The rest of the house is furnished amply and comfortably and stylishly, and even the lanai is big enough and had enough furniture to seat all 10 of us without crowding. But for that little problem of the bed, this well designed modern house and beautiful grounds served our needs most perfectly. I've already recommended it to friends.
Great place for big family, secluded, central and well equipped
This house is amazing, is very central to Hilo and the volcanoes national park. The house is Art Deco, ventilated and very well equipped. It was really nice to be able to cook with proper utensil as well as grill. We had a great time, and the owners and Skip were very responsive. We definitely will like to come back to this house!!
Large Modern Estate with everything you need!
Beautiful modern vacation home. Very spacious house, enjoyed the open floor plan, endless windows, high ceilings, refreshingly classy amenities. Family truly enjoyed modern kitchen, barbecue, large green yards and walk in shower bathrooms. Well-maintained, almost new, in a secluded neighborhood. Took a 5 minute drive to trail along the beautiful Ocean Cliffs.
Very nice home
Our stay here was very enjoyable. The house had everything we needed. Nicely furnished inside and out.
An Oasis in Paradise!!!
When I first saw this property and photos on VRBO, like Liz Lemon I said, 'I want to go to there!'... and upon arrival, we were WOWed with how beautiful and amazing the property was. It met all expectations set by the profile online, and even exceeded it in many regards. The beds were comfy, the rooms and outdoor spaces perfect and inviting, the kitchen was stocked and well equipped. We were as happy returning to the house and spending time there and cooking, as we were with the wondrous and and magical places were were visiting during the day.
The outdoor shower.... words fail me. So I thought I'd dedicate a paragraph to it. We all fell in love with it!
Not to say it was completely flawless... a few lamps and fans could use a little repair (nothing major AT ALL), and the first night had a series of mishaps with the smoke detectors going off two or three times in the middle of the night which wasn't great for already jet-lagged folks and a two year old... However, Skip, the property manager who lived down the road was Johnny-on-the-spot... He rushed over immediately any time we called and was extremely helpful and charming. Everyone we met who came to work on the properties was a delight to interact with.
Suffice it to say, I can't say enough about how much we loved getting to stay there, and would re-book this property in a heartbeat. Just know that it is a little bit out of the way from any main town, but in other ways it's nicely centrally located to many of the major things you'd want to do and see. The closest towns and markets are just a few minutes drive away. The last point I'll make is that if you rent the house, just be aware that other folks might be in the Guest House at the same time. Our first night, the crew in the guesthouse was a bit noisy, but Skip asked them to be mindful as we had a sleeping toddler, and then in the subsequent nights we had a different set of people come in who were rather delightful and more interactive. So as with anything with shared space, it could be a bit of a crap shoot... But we lucked out there for the most part. Of course if you have a larger group and rent out both spaces, then your golden... And can only complain about yourself and question your own friendship and family at that point (hehehe).
Thanks again to Aki and Laura for providing and sharing such an amazing space, and to Skip and the housekeeping lady and the painter dude who came through at some point too.
This recently finished modern and luxurious home is located in Hawaiian Paradise Park, which is a quiet, agriculturally zoned subdivision with over 100 miles of private road. The main roads are fully paved with most side roads comprised of compacted cinder, ideal for walking, running or cycling. There is about 4 miles of oceanfront with fantastic hiking on the trail abutting the ocean cliffs. Nearby towns of Pahoa (laid back) and Keaau (toward Hilo) offer many shopping amenities within a short drive; historical Hilo town and many restaurant options are only 12 miles away. A quiet country retreat yet close to amenities and conveniences. Explore the nearby hot ponds, Lava Tree State Park, Kapoho Tide Pools for fantastic snorkeling, and the scenic red road drive to the Kalapana lava area. Or, take the jaw-dropping Hamakua coastal drive, on the way to 'Kona side.'
