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 Keaau

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

It is a Hawaiian Paradise for real

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I spent a really fun and really peaceful week at this gorgeous property. Terry (property manager) is very nice and informative, and super easy to work with. Can't say enough about how well this property is taken care of, it's beautiful inside and out, and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need to enjoy your vacation here. The views are breathtaking and not to be cliche but the pictures don't do this place justice compared to being there in person. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge with us Terry and I hope to work with you again in the future!

Absolutely Amazing! Best Rental Ever.

  • 5 of 5

We booked this house to celebrate my dad's 70th birthday. He is a huge fan of the ocean and I knew he would enjoy the constant ocean view.

It is incredible. The house is impeccable. Everything you could possibly need is there. We stocked the fridge and ate numerous meals there. There are even shopping totes and two coolers for day trips in the garage!

Despite Hurricane Lane, we enjoyed the island and watched the waves and rain from the house's lanai with zero worry of flooding.

I swam in the pool most days -- even when it rained. The pool noodles in the garage were a nice surprise and something I used every time I was in the pool. What a memorable experience it was to wash off in warm water under the outside shower surrounded by beauty!

This trip -- and house -- is something my family and I will never forget. When I daydream of "checking out", I fondly fantasize about the days we spent here.

Amazing Property

  • 5 of 5

Paradise Pali Kai exceeded all of of our expectations! Our family spent almost two weeks in this beautiful home and didn't want to leave! We can't wait to return in the future. Terry did an outstanding job of being available for any questions or issues. As a property manager myself, I was impressed by his service.

Luxious, Oceanfront Big Island Rental

  • 5 of 5

This was a fantastic home! More than we ever imagined. Spacious, modern with a great pool that my two children loved coming home to. The Lanai looks out over the pacific and you are able to listen to the waves crash on the rocks. Best place for coffee in the morning, meals and to read. At night the full moon lit up the water as the sky was filled with the orange glow from the lava. Unbelievable sight. The air was clear and there was no threat from the volcano. The home is about 30 minutes from Volcano national park and it was very safe. Don't miss out on this great home 30 minutes from Hilo and all the beautiful tropical sights along the Eastern shores. We will definitely stay here again when we visit the Big Island. Hopefully next time the Park will be open again to visitors. Thank you so much for opening your home to us.

Nice property in a quiet neighbourhood

The property is very well taken car of and had a great view of the eruption that was occurring during our visit (and is still currently happening). We all enjoyed our stay there.

Beautiful House

  • 5 of 5

We just got home after a fantastic vacation. This house is everything they describe and I would stay there again. It's far enough away from the volcano you don't smell anything, but at night you can see the red sky from it. The winds were always in our favor. The accommodations were perfect!
