About Terri & Bill Hughes

Aloha we are Bill & Terri, originally from the Philadelphia area. Bill was stationed on Oahu in the military many years ago, and is a retired trucker. I am currently an accountant for a property management company. We renewed our wedding vows on this very island in 2005. That is how the dream started. We are now semi retired living in paradise. Through VRBO we were able to visit the islands every year affordably before moving here. We want to make the same thing possible for you. Come share the Aloha with us!

Terri & Bill Hughes purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Terri & Bill Hughes chose Kona Palisades

After many years of traveling to Hawaii we chose this property for the quiet and comfortable elevation in a newer neighborhood. Our home is in a new development with underground utilities, so no ugly power lines to spoil the view. It is in close proximity to shopping, dining, and roads that will lead you in any direction, no matter where on the island you want to travel; yet not in the hustle and bustle of town. And it is only a 10 minute drive to the airport, so when you arrive after a long days travel you are only moments away from relaxation instead of half hour drive or more to the hotel. And when you finally do have to say aloha, you can spend those extra precious moments right here enjoying paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

Very clean newer home in desirable neighborhood, for an affordable price. Owner operated, no outside vendors to deal with, your concerns are ours. Smoking is permitted only on outside Lani. Complimentary Kona Coffee and Kona natural soap is supplied. Beautiful view of coast line and only minutes from the airport with a great location to all activities to the north and south ends of the island. For the days you want to just relax there is a comfortable lani for you to enjoy the gentle breeze, beautiful garden and listen to the birds singing. Never too hot or too cold here, after a warm day at the beach you can come home to the Ohana and the weather is perfect.

Gorgeous, comfortable, clean! One of the best I have ever seen!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay was simply amazing. This property is a rare jewel in a vast sea of plankton. It was so clean, so comfortable, and so cozy! The location is great as well. Bill and Terri are terrific hosts. They had everything we needed. Overall we were so happy that we came across this wonderful home away from our home. If I ever back to a big island, this will be a place I would want to stay at. Thank you!

Beautiful cool nights up on the hill

  • 5 of 5

The rental portion is the entire downstairs, including the lanai out front with the gorgeous gas grill. It is wonderfully cool, especially at night, because this is up on the mountainside (overlooking the airport) and is high enough up to get the breezes and avoid the muggy heat of the sea-level coastline. Due to vegetation and other houses in the neighborhood, the view is somewhat limited, but as a base from which to go explore the island then come back to recover at the end of the day, this place was perfect.

Ideal for a couple, we stayed for ten days with three of us and it still worked out great for us. Just be ready to wake up with the roosters.

Lastly, Bill and Terri were wonderful hosts, sharing all sorts of information about the area. And Bill is almost always on-site, so if there are any issues, he can deal with it immediately.

Mahalo Bill and Terri for a wonderful pre-Christmas stay.

Awesome

  • 5 of 5

What a charming place with all the amenities imaginable. Our hosts were more than gracious. We were treated to garden grown tangerines and papayas. Delicious. Both Bill and Terri were very knowledgeable and helpful. We extended our stay twice.

Great people, great location, great lodging, great price!

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Terri are lovely down to earth people who were always friendly and helpful.

The lodging itself was awesome having just been renovated. It was all brand new, clean, private and very comfortable. The good wifi was also appreciated.

These guys have real "House Pride" because the whole property was perfect and immaculate. We will stay here again.

Historic Kailua Kona Village, a quiet seaside town located on the west side of the island. The home of King Kamehameha the Great! The very first capitol of the United Hawaiian Kingdom. Great snorkeling, fishing, and just getting a sun tan beaches. Our home is located about 15 minutes from these places at about 1,000 ft or 0.304 kilometers. Pu' uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park (Place of Refuge) is just a short drive to the south. Many upper mountain roads to the north to cattle ranch areas are easily accessible from our home. Volcanoes National Park is however a two hour drive. Mauna Kea or the (White Mountain) is only an hour away where you can see the stars above the clouds at the top of the world, 14000 ft or 4.267 kilometers. This is just a sample of the Big beautiful island. 13 climate zones in the entire world and we have 11 of them on the Big Island.
