About the property

3BR 2BA Home sleeps maximum of 6, OCEANFRONT HOT TUB! VIEWS!!

The Alohahouse is a spectacular oceanfront property where you will experience breathtaking sunrises, cascading rainbows, dolphin & whale watching all from the comfort of your Hawaiian hale. The property is located just 30 minutes south of Hilo in a private community, Hawaiian Paradise Park, on one of the loveliest bays in East Hawaii where you can walk for miles and see nothing but pristine coastline and lush forest. This quiet and serene property has everything including a length of the house oceanfront covered and tiled lanai. Furnished island style with rattan and wicker, ceiling fans, color TV, CD stereo and washer/dryer. In November 2013, we have put in a BRAND NEW KItCHEN! We have just put in an oceanfront brand new 5-person spa for your pleasure!! We feel this is a wonderful addition to the home! This home is a great spot to set up base to discover the beauty of the East side of the Big Island. It is just a short dirve to Volcano National Park, Lava Tree State Park, Hilo, Kapoho Tide Pools, botanical gardens, zoo & more. Perfect for a couple or family. I have many repeat guests who love being so close to the ocean! Paradise calls!

The Alohahouse: The oceanfront Alohahouse property sits spectacularly oceanfront on the pristine Puna Coast in the Hawaiian Paradise Park subdivision just south of Hilo on the Big Island of Hawaii. This 3 bedroom, 2 bath home offers the vacationer an up close and personal ocean experience! You can't get much closer to the ocean without being in it! It lulls you to sleep at night and the sunrises are so incredibly awesome - you will want to get up early even if you are on vacation! In the winter months, you can hear and see the whales that come in quite close because the ocean is deep in front of the property. This is a great spot to catch fish from the bluff and cook right on the barbecue!

Decorated island style with rattan furnishings and overhead ceiling fans in all the rooms, the home stays very comfortable all year! Sometimes you might even need a sweathshirt in the winter months! This home is centrally located and it is just a short drive to Volcano National Park, the Kapoho tide pools, and Hilo International Airport. The location is superb for the traveler wanting to set up base for the ultimate Big Island adventure. The oceanfront lanai is the place you will probably want to hang out after your day trips!

The BRAND NEW kitchen is fully equipped with all your dining needs, all linens are provided, along with soap, and laundry detergent (you won't have time for that though!) There is also an outdoor hot shower to rinse off after surfing, swimming, snorkeling, or hiking the volcano. We provide a cooler for your day outings too!

The cottage on the property is currently long term rented.

Activities:: From the oceanfront lanai you can sun bathe, dine and watch the sea turtles, dolphins and whales frolic. Explore the coastline tide pools or fish off the bluff. A short distance from blacksand beaches, hot ponds, waterfalls, golf, kayaking, Volcano National Park, shops and restaurants. Swimming, surfing, diving, fishing, snorkeling, or relax at nearby Isaac Hale Park, Pohoiki Bay, MacKenzie State Park, Puala'a Warm Springs, fabulous Kapoho Point, Kalani Honua Culture Center. Shopping, banking, medical facilities, restaurants, etc. in nearby quaint Pahoa Town. Have the best of both worlds: peace and serenity combined with as much activity as you feel like! Olympic size swimming pool in Pahoa (free!), fine restaurants in Hilo, Pahoa, & Keaau! Be sure to catch the Makuu farmers market on weekends, or the Hilo farmer's market! And we find 'Uncle Robert's' In Kalapan a fantastic way to have dinner on Wednesday evenings. It is located at the end of the 'Red Road,' Highway 137 in Kalapana. We find it's better than a luau with wonderful Hawaiian musicians, arts, crafts, many local food vendors. This is a must on your list of things to do in East Hawaii!

If this home is not available for your dates, please check out my other vacation rentals on this website, listing number 304974 and 312290.The Pualani Home in Kapoho is a wonderful place to stay as well and sleeps a maximum of 4 guests! Oceanfront Hokulani Kai is exquisite!

About Pat Starkie

We love the Big Island of Hawaii and try to visit as often as we can. We live in beautiful Morro Bay, California, where we do property management. Our hobbies and interests include swimming, bicycling, traveling, concerts, water skiing and enjoying our son and our daughter who live nearby.

Pat Starkie purchased this house in 2004

Why Pat Starkie chose Hawaii

We fell in love with this home because of its proximity to the ocean and the feeling of being on the 'edge of the world.' The air is so pure here and the night sky is star-filled. This is a very special place!

What makes this house unique

This is the place with the very HIGH RELAX factors. With the oceanfront length of the house lanai, you can watch the waves with the dolphins, turtles, whales in the winter months, for hours! You can catch fish off the bluff and cook it right there on your built-in oceanfront barbecue. Just a short drive to town for groceries, and a great place to come back to after day adventures to Volcano National Park, botanical gardens, farmer's markets, snorkeling in Kapoho, and so much more!! Paradise Found!

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is a place to get away from the hustle & bustle of frantic life on the mainland. The pounding of the surf, croaking of the frogs, cooing of the doves offer soothing comfort and relaxation. Turn off your cell phones and laptops and ENJOY! Don't miss the ice cream at Mauna Loa Mac Farm.

Since we have stayed in both Pat & Andy's homes, we can't pick a favorite - the causal calm of Pualani in Kapoho and wonderful pounding of the surf at the Dolphin Bay are both great! Hawaii is now a preferred destination.

Spectacular View

  • 5 of 5

Truly oceanfront. The view was spectacular. The house had lots of space. The condo manager was very helpful. The outdoor hot tub was divine. Just push the button to start the whirlpool and jump in! The beds were comfortable enough. Need to run the faucet a little while to get to hot water.

The interior was a bit outdated. And because of the wet weather of Hilo side, there was a musky smell. But we got used to it very quickly and grew to love the place. The internet was way too slow. It was hard to upload pictures to the cloud. And the phone connection was a bit spotty at times(we had T-mobile).

The waves were spectacular, too. You could not only hear the waves, see the waves, but also feel the waves through your entire body.

Owner's Response: You cannot beat the views from the home and the oceanfront hot tub! This is a great home at an unbelievable cost for oceanfront! The smell on the east side of the island - is "earthy" and "damp" - I personally love it! The water is from catchment (rain water), and it does take a few minutes for the hot water to come to the just be patient! This is rural Hawaii and the internet is not what one is used to on the mainland...I would wait to download pictures when you get home! Besides, you don't want to waste good vacation time downloading pictures! This is a fantastic place to relax and feel like you are on the edge of the earth!!

Looking to disconnect and experience the beauty of Hawaii? Visit Alohahouse

  • 5 of 5

This place is every bit as beautiful as indicated by the pictures. Working with Pat was great -- helpful and available via phone for questions, and has lots of ideas and suggestions for local spots.

Get yourself to the island / pack up some groceries in Hilo and head to your oceanfront hideaway. The house is nicely appointed with a comfortable living area / kitchen and three bedrooms. Open up the windows and let the gentle tropical breeze in. No AC but we did not find that at all an issue. The patio is a great place for meals as you have 180 degree ocean view. The kitchen is decently appointed to allow you to cook meals as you wish. Bring drinking water if you are at all nervous about the catchment in use - it is filtered and so should be just fine, but go with whatever makes you comfortable. Catch a beautiful sunrise from the master bedroom. Put away the electronics and just experience the beauty before you.

Although it feels as if you are far away from everything, the things you may want to do are actually pretty close. Grocery stores are 10-15 minutes away for those things you forgot :) We also enjoyed the Kapoho Tidepools -- go online (Yelp or other) to confirm how to get there as your map may lead you to the wrong place. Obviously you are within good proximity to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park. Good roads and just over an hour drive. We love hiking the KIlauea Iki Trail and the drive down to the Holei Sea Arch. So many climate changes -- from hot sun to fog to pouring rain and back to warm and breezy! Too many opportunities for swimming/snorkeling exist, but we found a good day at Carlsmith Beach Park in Hilo where we got to meet Ono the sea turtle. Recommend water socks as there are sharp rocks if you explore the bay. Great lunch at Puka Puka, a small local place with ahi caught and served same day. Grab a shave ice after and wander the downtown shops.

End your last day by taking "just one more" photo of the beauty seen from the patio. We had a great time at Alohahouse and believe you will as well!

Perfect House on The Big Island

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location. Perfect house. We are a family of 6 (2 adults, 4 kids aged 14,12,11 & 8). We wanted to stay in a house & feel like a local Hawaiian! This house was amazing. Plenty of room. The most amazing view! Spectacular sunrises. Watching sea turtles in the ocean. A short drive from the amazing Volcano National Park, Hilo & Pahoa. I cannot recommend this house highly enough! Our only regret is that we didn't stay longer! The owners are so extremely helpful - giving all sorts of tips from favourite restaurants to locations to visit! We will be back!!

Owner's Response: So happy to hear that a family of 6 felt comfortable in the home....sometimes I worry about that since there is one king in the master, one queen in another bedroom, a full bed in another, and a twin in the living room. I think it is great for a family - but probably not as ideal for 3 couples (full size bed is kind of small for a couple). But we LOVE happy guests and do our very best to communicate with travelers what we love about the Big Island. This is a great location if you want privacy, yet still be a short drive from the wonders of nature that abound on the Big Island of Hawaii.
