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.

Love, love loved it! Fantastic view, super clean, family friendly, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time while on vacation! We certainly enjoyed the amazing views and access to the ocean. The floor plan ensured privacy and was very roomy. Super clean! We loved the outdoor shower off the master bedroom. The kitchen had proper tools and a homey feel. We would highly recommend this house to stay while visiting the Big Island.

This property delivers on every point!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we will definitely be back and would stay here again, no question. The corner lanai is spectacular as is the master bedroom and pretty much everything else as well! Gregg was attentive and helpful, we appreciated the tip on how to find the hidden black sand beach! Mahalo!!!

Very beautiful home with every amenity. Amazing to wake up every morning to the view.

  • 5 of 5

We brought our son and family with grandson for first time holiday in Hawaii. This house was perfect in every way. Well stocked kitchen a t.v. big enough to please my husband. And private separation for couples sleeping. The elevation to road was a great workout for a hike. Did it once!😊?

Beautiful house and location

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed the house and views during our stay. The location is quiet and peaceful. The outdoor space was large and comfortable, and fun for sunset cocktails and apps, as well as morning coffee.

Because the neighborhood is pretty far outside town, you do need to plan meals and food in advance. We got used to the drive but you aren’t close to much so can’t run out for a quick bite or to pick up something from the store if you forgot it.
