About Robin Parisi
Frank and I are retired professionals and have lived in Hawaii full-time since about 2008. Before retiring, we lived and raised our family in Portland, Oregon. We have two children, a daughter (25) and a son (23), now both employed in Silicon Valley. We are quite sporty and love a challenging do-it-yourself project. Our yard/garden here in Hawaii has been our main retirement activity. We have tamed and terraced the garden by building rock walls, and we have added extensive concrete pathways and stairs. We swim in the ocean or ride our road bikes almost daily. I am a mosaic artist, and Frank plays guitar and ukulele.
Robin Parisi purchased this cottage in 2006
Why Robin Parisi chose Holualoa
For years we escaped on vacation from Portland's gray winters to blue Hawaii and, after trying the other islands, kept coming back to the Big Island for its unparalleled ocean swimming, and to Kailua-Kona for its old-time, 'spirit of aloha' small-town atmosphere. We originally bought a sea-level condo, but found that it was too hot and too touristy for our tastes, so we started looking for alternatives.
What makes this cottage unique
The little estate of which the cottage is a part was built starting in the late 1970's. We found its all-wood post and beam construction, cedar interiors, cool location, garden setting and beautiful expansive views almost unique in Kona's home market, and fell in love with it the day we first saw it.
Guestbook comments from the owner
Dear Robin, I don't believe I've ever stayed in such a well
-supplied vacation rental, you thought of everything, thank you so much. This is a real treat. You made it very easy to relax here, tho we feel like we've hardly made a dent in the pleasures of this part of the big island.
Thank you, Katherine
