About Gregg Erickson

A resident of the Big Island for 30 years, with four children raised on-island, I searched for the perfect spot to build a dream vacation home for my family and friends in which the ocean, beaches, and outdoor activities, could all best be enjoyed - and found it here at Kona Paradise.

Gregg Erickson purchased this house in 2008

Why Gregg Erickson chose Opihihale

Unique setting near the water, with both black and white sand beaches nearby, Captain Cook attractions, King's Trail hiking, beautiful reefs, incredible diving and snorkeling, in an area of Hawaii untouched by commercial tourism and alive with the spirit of aloha and natural beauty.

What makes this house unique

Proximity to the ocean and local beaches, combined with an inviting and relaxing environment that can be shared with family and friends, are some of the best features of about this home.

The home is gorgeous and very clean.

  • 4 of 5

The location and the home itself are beautiful. The house was very clean with lots of attention to detail. It was very well stocked with kitchen supplies, snorkel gear and shampoo conditioner etc. only two complaints: there is no air conditioning and it was very hot throughout our stay. Very hard to cool down. The master bedroom and bathroom were separate from the rest of the house. You have to actually go outside to get to it. Not that big of deal, but a little strange.

Beautiful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Gregg’s lovely home was the perfect place for us. We hiked, snorkeled, watched dolphins swim by, listened to the soothing sound of Pebble Beach, and explored the island. Everything was comfortable and fit all of our needs. The drive ina nd out was adventurous for sure. Thanks for the snorkel gear. Thanks for the suggestions. Thanks for the amenities and attention to detail. We loved our stay completely.

Beautiful, custom-designed home in a quiet neighborhood. Perfect family getaway.

  • 5 of 5

The house has so many custom touches. Builder is the host/owner of this location who obviously takes pride in his work & care of the home. Quiet location near interesting, short hiking excursions. Host communication is excellent. And house is very well stocked, with great attention to detail, clean and provisioned with many amenities.

This location is perfect for those who want a quiet getaway to spend time relaxing in a beautiful home, or for those who are good at planning excursions to link them to minimize time spent driving. Since the home is about 1 hour south of the Kona airport, about 25 minutes south of the nearest full service grocery, and down a very steep hill, we made our grocery run on the way in from the airport, and planned our days' activities to minimize driving. It worked out fine, and we enjoyed the house and location immensely. Thanks to the well-organized and caring hosts!

Beautiful house in a even more beautiful location

  • 5 of 5

Greggs house was nothing less perfect! Beautiful view of the beach (pebble not sand). The house had everything we needed from cookware to spices. Gregg called us the first day we got to the house and gave us a bunch of tips and pointers on things to do around the house and on the island as well as places to eat. Overall, Gregg was very helpful and we loved the house!!
