About Sterling Dorje

As a college student of 19 I found myself on Oahu (I was from Philadelphia) visiting Hawaii for the first time during the Vietman war. At that moment I knew Hawaii was someday to be my home, Maybe it had to do with the ice storm I left back in Philly. When I got home, I applied with United Airlines and moved out to Chicago, then to L.A. I flew for United for 27 yrs. around the world. Nothing came close. Hawaii was to be my destiny ! I married a very interesting man from Tibet 15 yrs. later and eventually we found a place to call home in Hawaii. We both lived out of a suitcase doing international business together and traveling the world. Now we sell 'memories of a lifetime' and enjoy meeting people from all over the world

Sterling Dorje purchased this estate in 2011

Why Sterling Dorje chose Hilo

Living and working in Hawaii is the best you can get ! Sharing our world with our guests brings us much satisfaction. We love our island and the people who make it great. There is nothing like Oceanfront property.. they are not making any more of it..except at Volcano National Park.

What makes this estate unique

Outrageous ! The waves, the whales, the pool on the edge of the ocean, the fresh air you breathe in looking down on the crashing waves below. NOTHING LIKE IT !

Guestbook comments from the owner

"Trisha,

Thank you for letting me know about the deposit. We had a wonderful stay at Hale Shangrila and as always, we had a very hard time leaving Hawaii. The house was very comfortable and exceeded our expectations. The view was exceptional and we spent many hours enjoying the pool, jacuzzi, and lanai. Thank you for providing such a nice place and I will definitely share my experiences with others.

Mahalo!!

Sue"

May retreat

  • 4 of 5
Rented house for 6 nights. Very nice & website was accurate as portrayed. Spectatcular site on ocean; eating all meals on patio enjoying the view & sounds of birds. Would have benefitted us with instructions of how to operate TV in living room and channel guide. Also no a/c which wasn't needed except for mid afternoon hours, bedrooms were hot for siestas. Kitchen was well appointed to cook for our foursome however tips would be to sharpen knives, fix icemaker & during last 2 days the dishwasher wouldn't work. Overall our stay was enjoyable. Driving the 4 miles off main road took awhile due to 35 mph. Hilo was 1/2 hr but with construction seemed like much longer. Once on the property we really loved it! Great property to enjoy with friends. 2nd bedroom had no tv. Would recommend!

Awesome!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful week at this beautiful home!! The home was comfortable, clean and had everything we needed to have a great time! We loved being right on the ocean and the sound of the waves ! We saw whales, dolphins and turtles right from the pool and lanai ! Amazing ! The pool was great and got quite warm on sunny days. At the end of the day, we really enjoyed soaking in the hot tub, watching the stars and listening to the waves. A big thank you for replacing the BBQ! The new one worked great. We enjoyed grilling fresh fish every night for dinner and dining on the lanai ! We enjoyed exploring the beaches and sites nearby and it was a quick drive to Hilo, Pahoa (go to Keleo's restaurant!! Great food!) and the volcano! Overall, we had a fantastic and very relaxing week here and would definitely consider coming back in the future!! MAHALO!! John and Gail

For a relaxing vacation look no further!

  • 5 of 5
This place is exactly what mainlander’s dream of, when they think of coming to Hawaii. The home sits on the edge of a lava cliff with great ocean views, sounds of crashing waves and sea spray. The pool looked as if it spilled right into the ocean. It was just the two of us staying here, as the point of the vacation was to celebrate my 50th birthday. The home is private, secure with the fence and gate. The neighborhood is nice and quiet. We were there at the end of October into November for our two weeks and never saw the neighbor to the left or the couple on the right. It was like having the street to ourselves. The design of the house is great for vacationers with plenty of room. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook perfect meals. We visited the Farmers Markets in Hilo and Pahoa for fresh fruits, vegetables and tropical flowers. For the best fish at unbelievable prices, stop in at Suisan. Suisan is located in Hilo near Liliuokalani Gardens. We ate in a few times and cooked on the grill, enjoying the huge wonderful lanai, pool, and the ocean views.
At the end of the street is a public area with great sunrise views and is just nice spot to hang out and watch the ocean. You will see the local fishermen with their catches. There’s so much to do on this side of the island with Volcanoes National Park close by. We drove the entire Crater Rim Drive until it ended where the lave flow covered the road. The town of Pahoa has some really nice finds for restaurants. We ate twice at Paolo’s an authentic Italian restaurant owned by and Italian. Paolo’s is BYOB so come prepared and make a reservation as seating is limited. Kaleo’s had great drinks and is a nice place for lunch or dinner. Ning’s Thai restaurant had great food as well. In Hilo we went to Café Pesto twice and had a great meal on both occasions. Close by are some great beaches and swimming. Enjoyed the tidal pools at Kapoho, great snorkeling there. Loved the black sand beach at Kehena. We would pack a lunch and stay here all day. Some amazing waves and a nice laid back vibe here.
Finally, Sterling was great in answering all my questions and was very professional. Their caretaker Steve was a big help. We shipped some gear ahead to the island and he delivered it to the house when it came. The house was clean, neat and well taken care of. The house exceeded our expectations. Our trip here was comfortable, relaxing and very memorable. What more can you ask for from a vacation?

We live in Kona. When we get guests that have not been here, it is mandatory to go to volcano. We rented this house so we could have 2 days to visit the park. However, when our daughter and her boyfriend saw this place, on their second day, they wanted to stay right here and relax. It is so beautiful to get in the pool and watch the ocean.
We cooked and there was everything necessary for any project. There were even several basic items left in the pantry.
The next day, we went to the farmer's market which is just around the corner. The prices and variety of rare fruits and homegrown items was another treat.
This home is beautiful and private. I hope we can stay here again.

Family Christmas get away

  • 5 of 5
The home was very nice, and the additional Ohana very convenient for our family. The ocean view over the lava cliff was outstanding. We saw turtles every morning (too early for the whales), and had coffee watching and listening to the waves hit the shore. We have a daughter 14, and a son 17 and we all made good use of the hot tub and the pool. The location of the home was great for sight seeing. We spent our first week on the Big Island in this home, and found it wonderful for seeing the south and east coast. We had a different destination everyday, the home was central for most of our excursions. I don't think we made it past 8 pm every night! We were lucky that the weather was good when we were here, though we were prepared for rain! The owners were great, quick to email back with answers to my many questions, and the maintenance man was also great. Really enjoyed our Puna stay!

Mahalo!
