About Maureen Gapp

We have lived on the Big island for over 25 years and raised our family here. We live just down the street and absolutely love this beautiful secluded area. Kola Point is an amazing place. Close enough to all the places to see but, far enough away to enjoy the serenity of the Big Island

Maureen Gapp purchased this House in 2010

Why Maureen Gapp chose Hawaiian Paradise Park

The privacy is important as well as being in the 'sun belt'. This lot was so unique as it backed up to a beautiful forest of Ohia. The natural wall prevents any neighbors from being behind us, so the privacy is amazing.

What makes this House unique

Peace and tranquility. My favorite thing to do is to light a campfire and watch the stars. The area is mostly vacation homes and private homes so it's great to be able to walk or bike around without any traffic.

                                                                  Barbara P.Seattle, WA

                                                                  I can't say enough about this beautiful house. The kitchen is as well appointed as my own including sharp knives, what a treat! The pool is salt water, clean and the perfect temperature. The house clean beyond my wildest imaginings, with many towels, nice sheets and comfortable beds. Frankly, it was hard to leave and go explore the island. The house is located in a perfect spot not far from the attractions in the area. Don't miss Uncle Robert's farmers market, fun, music, vendors and local produce. We spent a lot of time at the hot pools, tide flats and volcano national parks. We will be back, hopefully Maureen will let us come. Thank you for the wonderful, relaxing stay. Barbara Randy and Ariana

                                                                  Aloha, thank you for your review. So glad you enjoyed your stay. Would love for you to stay with us again. A hui hou. Maureen

                                                                  This house is even better in person

                                                                  Deborah M.Oakland

                                                                  This house was a treat to stay in. It's very comfortable and well laid out for easy living. The pool is unbelievable and very private. It was the perfect location for us to travel to both Hilo and Pahoa where our friend lives.

                                                                  The kitchen had everything we needed (except a vegetable peeler) and it was easy to live in for two weeks, making delicious meals with the fresh fish and vegetables that were abundant at the farmers markets or on the roadside stands.

                                                                  Thank you for the multitude of towels. We did have to rewash much of them due to the heavy scent of the laundry detergent. I would definitely suggest using a scent free detergent in the future. The pool was well maintained and Jon came over to clear out our trash when the bins were full right away.

                                                                  Sadly we did not find the memory foam mattress comfortable in the master bedroom. But all the other furniture was comfortable and supportive. We had a great time watching the Merrie Monarch hula festival in the comfort of our home away from home on their wonderful big screen tv.

                                                                  This home is definitely one that we will recommend to friends and come back to when we return to the Big Island.

We thoroughly enjoyed the pool every day after our long days of adventuring. Can't wait to come back again in the future!
