About Michael Bighaus
My wife and I really love making our property as beautiful as possible. My wife Rute is from Brazil and speaks three languages, English, Spanish and Portuguese. I on the other hand speak English and a little Spanish and a little Portuguese, when I say little I mean very little however, I am learning. We bought the property about 10 years ago. We planted all the trees even before we built. After having the property cleared we put down hundreds of yards of cinder soil over the entire two acres. All the trees you now see, were planted just as starts only a couple feet tall, now the Royal palms are from 25 feet to 30 feet tall. Most of the fruit trees were planted at the same time and are producing delicious fruit. At least once a year we plant a couple more different kinds of fruit trees. Because my wife is from Brazil, we have even found a few varieties from Brazil, one is called Brazilian cherry. A couple years ago we added several different varieties of Banana's, some are cooking banana's. We really hope you enjoy our place as much as we do and will make it like your own when you are here.
Why Michael Bighaus chose Hawaiian Paradise Park
I am a Vietnam Veteran and years ago I came from Vietnam for a break from the war, we called it R&R, at that time, I fell in love with the weather and the beauty of the tropics. I decided that if I ever had the chance to live in Hawaii I would do it. I have been blessed to find a wife who loves the same things as myself, the beauty of the ocean and a warm tropical breeze. We both love long walks and the ocean is not but a perfect evening stroll. All our neighbors are wonderful who never seem to be in a hurry and find it easy to talk story. These are just a few of the reasons why we chose this property.

Secluded, quiet property, beautiful area, very comfortable!
We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful property! The cottage is cozy, comfortable and had everything we needed. We would stay here again!
An excellent place to stay, my wife and I would stay there again.
The property was very well taken care of and was a wonderful place to stay. It was quiet with no traffic on the street. The cottage was well taken care of with all of the amenities.
What a treat after arriving in the dark to wake up to the beautiful surroundings of this home. Our children loved exploring the plants and trees, geckos and frogs, and it was a relaxing place to spend the first part of the morning outside while we planned our day. Even though it was a studio apartment the four of us (2 adults, 2 children) were comfortable sharing the space together as we didn't need to spend much time inside anyway. The apartment was clean and bright with plenty of space for us to keep our luggage and clothes, and there lots of lounging space outside under cover or in the sun. I was glad to have the advice to bring our own drinking water. Thank you for the perfect introduction to Hawaii!
Very clean and Mike left us with all the amenities we need.
This is a gorgeous property! The grounds are beautiful with the palms and fruit trees. A great place to relax in peace and quiet, yet handy to Volcanoes Park and Hilo. The cottage is nicely appointed with everything you need. Would’ve liked to have had more time to stay here.
Thanks so much for staying at our place. Perhaps next time you could stay longer. Our door will always be open for you.Thanks for the nice words.

Heaven !!!!! Sweet Life!
This makes our 2nd time using this property and the owners are easy to work with and friendly. If a cozy little cottage is what you're looking for with total privacy then this is the place for YOU! Easy to Volcano and Tide pools, Hilo town, and Mountain View. The property alone is beautiful so you can walk around it and check out all the trees it really gives you the Hawaii feeling of being in a jungle. We Love this place so much that it has inspired us to find our own little piece of Heaven. Thank You Guys!!! Mahalo<3 The Stones
