Paradise Ocean Hale is a stunning oceanfront home located in quiet, rural South Kona, just a 40 minute drive from Kailua-Kona. Enjoy the luxury of sitting on your own spacious lanai, listening to the sound of the surf gently washing over our beautiful pebble beach while watching whales and dolphins swim by. Snorkel, swim and kayak from our private community beach just steps from your door. Kaohe Bay has some of the best snorkeling and diving on the island.

This gracious open plan home features 3 large tastefully decorated tropical style bedrooms, including a master suite, 2 baths, comfortable large living area with a 60 inch surround sound TV system, beautiful Koa bar and a large well appointed kitchen. Enjoy barbecuing and dining out on the lanai or relaxing with a tropical drink and watching a glorious sunset.

About Bill

My great grandparents traveled from Portugal to the Hawaiin Islands and settled in Maui in the late 1800s. I was born in Maui and reared in Oahu. I went to Farrington High School and graduated when I was 17. I was married the same yr. and also had my first child. By the time I was 21, I had 4 children. I moved to San Diego in 1960, remarried and had my 5th child. I went into Real Estate sales in San Diego and sold RE for 20 yrs. By that time I had several rentals and retired from RE and lived off the income of my rentals. It was hard work

but it paid off in time.

Why Bill chose Kona Coast

My husband Gary loved fishing and when we went to Kona for a vacation, he fell in love with it.

We wanted to build our home here, so we looked for a lot. We both wanted to

be by the ocean, however, it was slim pickings finding a lot on the ocean or by the ocean. We heard about Kona Paradise from a Realtor who showed us our lot. We were so excited because not only was it ocean front but it also was a swimming beach. It is very rare in Kona to have a beach that you can walk into and swim or snorkel without having to cross over sharp lava rocks.

What makes this house unique

It is so wonderful to just sit and listen to the waves washing thru the pebbles on the beach. In the winter time when the surf high, it is such a beautiful sight to see the large waves crashing down on the beach. I love watching the whales as they go by to settle in the coves south of us and birth their calfs before going back up north. I also love to see the dophins that come and visit our cove. My huband and I would anchor our boat in the cove and then go fishing. Just a few miles out we would catch a lot of fish that we'd share with our wonderful friends and nieghbors. Kona Paradise is truly paradise.

Beautiful house and lovely beachfront setting

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at this place. If you want to hear the sounds of the ocean, visit the beach at your doorstep, and stay in a beautiful, custom built house, this is the one for south Kona.

This home is the perfect place to stay on a "private" beach, I say that because Pebble Beach is one of the most unknown of all the the Big Island's secrets. If you want to spend the day on the beach steps away from your home, this is the place. The house was immaculate and you can tell it is well maintained. There is nothing but great things to say about this house. Bill was always responsive and attentive. We hope to be able to comeback soon.

Outstanding Rental

  • 5 of 5

The house was very beautiful, well maintained and everything we expected. The beach was just steps from the door. Great swimming and snorkeling. Very calm and clear waters during our stay. This seems to be due to the time of year in which we stayed. It was perfect for our kids. The road to the house was steep, but we were informed of it well before arriving and it was not an issue. The house is not air conditioned and was very stuffy on days we had it closed up all day. Once doors and windows were opened and fans turned on it cooled off well. However, we were aware of this prior to renting, so it was not a problem for us. The cellular service was spotty at the house however, I liked it, as I was on vacation and no one could bother me. The internet worked well. It was nice having the beach towels, laundry detergent, and body wash provided. We would definitely rent this house again.

Beautiful home overlooking the ocean.

Thank you so much. We loved our stay! We came during a very humid time and loved the plethora of fans in the home to use. Look forward to staying again.
