About Richard Stefankiewicz


We are Rick and Connie, live in Canada and have adult children. We love Our Hawaii Home and would be pleased to share it with you. After our 2012 visit to this community, in another villa, we knew we had to live here, where we felt so at home. In the spring of 2014 we were back in a villa across the street and purchased this villa which has one of the best views in the community.

Richard Stefankiewicz purchased this villa in 2014

Why Richard Stefankiewicz chose Kamuela

Our home sits on a hill with a magnificent view of the ocean where we have seen whales playing and incredible sunsets. The villa offers every convenience, from a private outdoor shower to a kitchen equipped for a gourmet chef and glass doors that disappear into the walls to bring the outdoors in.

What makes this villa unique

The Amenity Membership we purchased affords our guests access to the adjacent award winning Mauna Kea and Hapuna Resorts with their two Top 100 World Ranked golf courses, tennis club, restaurants and the best beaches in Hawaii. You can share our membership, while you stay with us, for $95 a day, for the villa, regardless of the number of occupants staying in the villa.

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had a wonderful time. Your home far exceeded expectations, as did the Big Island. We hope to return for Spring Break next year. Credit our good friends for the point in the right direction (we chanced the rain in Princeville for the past couple years) who have been loyal tenants of your neighbors across the street

Luxury Hawaiian Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

This is one of the most lovely homes we've stayed in. The home is beautifully appointed with every comfort. It's spacious, impeccably kept, and beautiful inside and out. The private yard with pool, spa, outdoor dining and kitchen were a delight. The location is residential, and you have access to two resorts and all their amenities. The resorts are about a 2 minute drive, if that. The beaches that are part of the resorts are wonderful! Excellent snorkeling, boogie boarding, body surfing, etc. The resorts' restaurants and breakfast buffets were a nice option when we didn't want to cook and clean. You will not want to come home!

Owner's Response: I'm glad you enjoyed your stay. When we bought this house our goal was to make our guests feel like they are staying at their own home with access to every possible comfort. Add to that the two best beaches in Hawaii, and very much like you, whenever it comes time to leave none of us wants to go home.

Beautiful home equipped with all the household amenities you could ever want. Access to the Mauna Kea & Hapuna Resorts is well worth and added cost and makes this home and location the perfect Hawaiian vacation for a big family or group of friends.

Absolutely Stunning

  • 5 of 5

This home was absolutely stunning and we loved our time spent here. There was a group of 8 (5 adults & 3 kids) and we all had plenty of space. The pool was a huge hit & the outdoor sitting areas were taken advantage of daily, especially watching the sunset. We enjoyed having access to both resorts, which are both amazing. Mauna Kea in particular was our favorite! We got to see dolphins while out there on the beach and swim with a couple sea turtles. The house is well equipped with everything you could think of, furnishings are very nice and beds were very comfortable. This was an incredible trip for us and the owner was very responsive during our booking. We had the pleasure of meeting the concierge, Lissette, and she was very helpful in giving us the best advice on things to do and all the recommendations. We ventured out on our own mostly and saw a bunch of the Island and were absolutely amazed with the beauty of it. Can not wait to go back!! Thank you so much for sharing this beautiful slice of heaven for others to enjoy!!

Beautiful Views, Peaceful Setting

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay in this beautiful home. The house has great living space indoor and out with a gourmet kitchen, grill,’pool and spa. We enjoyed our evenings out on the lanai and with three ensure bedrooms everyone had their own private space. We would definitely stay here again when on the Big Island.

Perfect in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Best ever! We have stayed in HomeAway/VRBO homes in New York, Miami, Dallas, Aspen, London, Rome, Paris, Barcelona and Madrid and this was the most beautiful by far. The house is built as part of a duplex with others near by, but the landscaping and design give you full privacy. That combined with the unobstructed view from the lanai across parts of the Hapuna golf course down to the ocean make you feel you have the whole island to yourself.

The luxuries are many. From the appliances to the furnishings to the granite countertops to the outdoor pool and spa, everything was top of the line and in fine working order. The beds were very comfortable and linens and towels were clean and plentiful. The kitchen was fully equipped with every imaginable dish, pan or implement. The kitchen was stocked with lots of condiments, spices, oils etc. Dishwasher and laundry detergent was provided and every bath had dispensers soap, shampoo and conditioner.

The house is exactly as pictured, spacious and beautiful. We loved having access to Mauna Kea and Hapuna Hotels and their beaches and golf courses. For us the guest fee was well worth the price. Richard the owner and Lisette the concierge were both extremely nice and helpful. We would love to come back as soon as possible.

Perfect Vacation - Memories will last forever

  • 5 of 5

We recently spent 6 nights in this wonderful vacation rental to celebrate my parent's 50th wedding anniversary. It was my parents, myself, my brother and sister in law and my 8 year-old niece. As soon as we walked in, we knew we had chosen the perfect place for our vacation. Everything was perfect, the decor, the kitchen, the outdoor space, etc. Spent a lot of time just relaxing in the outdoor space, my niece used the pool everyday. The outdoor space was perfect and extremely quiet and relaxing, it felt like our own little paradise. I had not seen my dad that relaxed in his entire life. The views of the golf course and mountains on one side and the ocean on the other side were amazing and the views of the stars on a clear night were majestic. Kitchen (and outdoor grilling area) had everything anyone would ever need and we cooked/ate in for most meals. The owners and management company were very responsive to any questions we had throughout the rental process and during the stay. I can't say enough good things about our experience. It created memories which will last forever.
