About Jeffrey Owen

The owner's of this joint venture are four families who are three bother's and their best friend. All four families come from Southern California. Each brought their own special skills and desires (agriculture, technology, and luxury lounging) in building this sprawling resort home.

Jeffrey Owen purchased this estate in 2004

Why Jeffrey Owen chose Ninole

A relaxing, elegant, and peaceful retreat from the stresses of life.

What makes this estate unique

On the property, you can share a fresh cup of coffee on the front lanai with a 220 degree view of the ocean and migrating whales, a midnight stroll down the moon lit driveway of 75 Royal Palms towering 60 feet in the starlit sky, swimming in the 50, 000 gallon infinity edge pool overlooking the ocean, sunning on the pool deck, relaxing in the pool lanai or swim up bar, enjoying a jacuzzi next to the 8 foot waterfall, watching a movie or sporting event on the 16 foot theatre screen, or playing a game of pool.

A great place to enjoy the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

A great place for our family vacation. So close to many activities that we like to do and the privacy that we needed to relax. The house and grounds are beautiful. The caretaker was always nearby when we needed him and full of information about the island. We hope to make this a destination in the future.

This home exceeded our expectations at every level family of 12

  • 5 of 5

Joe was awesome! He had suggestions for us every day to see the beauty of the Big Island, volcano, swimming with the dolphins(the dolphins were rite where he said they would be and the time he said, what a great time swimming with them!)water falls and many more. He really did a great job showing us around the property and how to operate everything. I was very thankful to have Mr Joe there to help us with seeing the beauty of Hawaii. The whole trip we made from the property to the hospitality and the Hawaiian culture is the best to date for our family and I will definitely recommend this location to others and our family will be a return customer. We had age ranges from 5 to 70 years old and the property fit everyone’s needs

The pool house, pool and hot tub are are a great place to hang out! The porch view of the ocean was our every morning breakfast time as a family and we loved every minute of it. We were able to pick a couple of coconuts from one of the trees and Mr Joe came by and prepared the coconut juice for us! Mr Jeff this is truely a nice place you have here and thank you again for allowing us to stay at your property. The pictures are great of the property but seeing it in person is a must! Future families will not be disappointed

Thanks again to Mr Joe and Mr Jeff

Ps. Our middle son proposed to his girlfriend there on the porch over looking the ocean where we had breakfast every morning and she said YES!

Greatest Family Vacation Ever, Springer family of 7 Dec. 22-Jan 5th.

  • 5 of 5

We had the most wonderful time at this property. The set up of the bedrooms and the great gathering area was fabulous. The pool and hot tub was used every day of our two week stay. The property is beautiful and the view is outstanding. Joe was a great source of information on places to go and eat on both sides of the island. I would recommend this property to everybody. I hope we can make it back some time in the future

Owner's Response: We enjoyed having you for your 45th anniversary, Christmas and New Year. It is great when a family of multi-generations can get together to enjoy the Big Island. We designed the Royal Palms Estate with exactly this kind of family vacation in mind. We are honored that you considered us for this very special celebration.

Heaven on earth is the best way to describe the Royal Palms. Beautiful view, awesome pool area!

  • 5 of 5

From the time you enter the gate, drive down the gorgeous palm tree entrance, pick your room (all with King beds and huge showers), tour the vast property, them jump in the pool, the whole place is awesome. The outside pool, hot tub and covered sitting area was where we wanted to spend all our time after touring the volcanoe park or seeing stunning waterfalls. The view of the ocean from the pool or front sitting area was wonderful. I would highly recommend the Royal Palms to everyone. We had 2 families share the property and we all had a fabulous time and never felt like we were in each other's space. Lots of room for 4 kids and 4 adults. The house was fully stocked with all the necessary appliances for making your meals including cutlery, utensils, dishes, lines, spices, etc). Joe, the property manager is always around when you need him and is eager to offer suggestions on places to see while visiting the Big Island. I'm sure we experienced every great site thanks to Joe.

Our family really enjoyed this beautiful, peaceful property. It's like staying at a personal resort

  • 5 of 5

This property was awesome, from the lovely pool and shaded sitting area, to the fresh fruit on the property and the large bedrooms. Our family also enjoyed the pool table and lovely views of the ocean. It is a 30 minute drive from Hilo so you must come prepared with groceries etc.

A huge asset of the property is the manager, Joe. He was so knowledgeable of the local hot spots to see, places to eat and even shop. His recommendations were so helpful, and we were able to swim with the dolphins, find awesome beaches and enjoy some fine dining which we wouldn't have known about. He was also very responsive in fixing little things like a beeping smoke detector. He made our trip even better than we anticipated. We would recommend this vacation home.
