About Terry Schoneberg

We stayed in the Wailele Kai in September 2013 during our vacation to the Big Island and we fell absolutely in love with the house and the view of the ocean from the house and lanai. Shortly thereafter, we offered to buy the Wailele Kai (the previous name for the home). After reaching an agreement with the prior owners and buying the property we renamed her Paradise Pali Kai. We are excited to be able to share our home in PARADISE with other vacationers. Terry Schoneberg, Sunrise Properties, is the property manager and having lived in the Hilo area for over 40 years can fully assist you, as he did us, in making this a trip of a lifetime.

Terry Schoneberg purchased this house in 2013

Why Terry Schoneberg chose Hawaii

Why The Big Island: We have visited Hawaii many times. Of all the islands, the Big Island is our favorite. The Big Island is less commercialized, and there is a greater variety of things to do and see. To name a few, Volcano National Park is a must see, the Japanese gardens, the banyan trees on Banyan Drive, jungle gardens and amazing waterfalls, pele’s lava; black, white, and green sand beaches and; at times lava flowing into the ocean near Kalapana.

Why the Hilo area: While we like the Kailua Kona area on the west side, we enjoy the lushness and beauty of the eastern side more. The eastern side is a tropical beauty and the ocean is majestic. Paradise Pali Kai is ocean front in a quiet residential neighborhood in Keaau, about 20 minutes outside Hilo. Thanks to the excellent road system, travel to the western, southern, and northern ends of the island is an easy drive from Keaau.

The Unique Benefits of this House: First, the house and views are simply stunning. The magic of the location is how close the house and lanai are to the ocean and the waves. The waves break directly on the lava cliffs IN THE BACKYARD. It is dramatic to view from the lanai, “great room”, and master bedroom, all of which are on the second floor facing the ocean. Every room upstairs and downstairs, has a view of the ocean.

What makes this house unique

The Finest quality luxury in every corner of our home. In the front of the house, in a beautifully landscaped and protected private courtyard, is a gorgeous lagoon pool with waterfalls, lanai and covered patio. While the tropics are beautiful, it can at times be unbearably hot and humid, particularly to those accustomed to a cooler or drier environment or central air conditioning. To eliminate this problem, the home has an air-conditioning system that cools, filters and dehumidifies the air. It is a zoned system and the temperature of each bedroom and the “great room” can be individually controlled. Most vacation homes in Hawaii do not have air conditioning, but this vacation home defines luxury. In addition, there are fans throughout the house for ambiance and use on cooler days. Paradise Pali Kai is true luxury. Mahalo

Oceanfront Luxury!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at this lovely home. It was obvious to us that the owners loved and cared for this beautiful home as every detail was taken care of. Our family didn't want to leave the property! The ocean views from the deck are some of the best in the world! We saw turtles daily in the ocean and loved to wake up to the sunrises! The back deck was great too - we loved how it was shaded and allowed us to listen and watch the birds while enjoying the view of the pool. We'd love to return should we have the opportunity. We would highly recommend this property.

This house will not disappoint!

  • 5 of 5

The ocean views are entrancing - once you arrive you will not want to leave! It’s difficult to decide which side of the property to spend your time on…the private pool in the front is fantastic and the ocean views in the back are captivating! This is a phenomenal place to get away, relax, and decompress in a quiet and peaceful setting. Be sure to arrive with all the groceries & supplies you need as the nearest store is 10 miles away. Excellent kitchen for cooking gourmet meals. Upstairs master has the queen bed, downstairs has the king bed in one room & a trundle bed with two twin mattresses in the second. King mattress is very soft. So many supplies for snorkeling and swimming! Lanai and porch are large with ample seating, rocking chairs, and a stunning ocean view. Remember this is the rainy side, but we still managed to experience some sun! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Paradise Pali Kai. ~ Mahalo

Great vacation home and wonderful ocean views

  • 5 of 5

Was on the Big Island for 2 weeks and decided to split our stay and stay on the Hilo side for 3 nights. The views from this home are incredible, especially from the upstairs bedroom. Everything was perfect at this home and the kitchen was one of the best equipped that I have ever seen in a rental property. The A/C was great to have as it was humid at night as it rained during the night. Loved having the full size washer and dryer. The private pool was great and we spent an entire day just hanging out in the pool. Very clean property with nice bed linens and towels.

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was absolutely perfect. We enjoyed watching the waves from the lanai, kitchen, living room, dining table, and bedroom. The kitchen was equipped with everything we could have possibly wanted or needed. Everything was thought of! We didn't think about a/c when we booked the house, but were thankful we happened upon a house that had it. I can't think of anything more we could have wanted. We will come back and we will stay at this house.

WOW!

  • 5 of 5

I highly recommend this property to everyone. The pictures on the website do not do it justice. This is the most beautiful vacation property we have ever stayed in. The views were second to none. The sound of the ocean makes for a very peaceful scenery. We could not believe how clean the house was. All the windows were spotless. It is amazing how a vacation rental can be so comfortable and clean. We spent our 20th wedding anniversary at this property, and it will be one of the best memories of our lives. The directions from the airport are very easy to find as well. This property is truly amazing, and will make your stay easy to enjoy.
