About Alfreda McDonald
Let me introduce myself, I am Alfreda McDonald but I prefer Eva my husband Robby, and I live in California on the coast between Monterey and Santa Cruz. In 2014 we decided to invest in our beautiful vacation home in a extraordinary location. We have enjoyed renting our lovely Hawaiian home for many years, and would be most delighted to have you and your family enjoy our wonderful House of Love by the Sea.
Alfreda McDonald purchased this House in 2004
Why Alfreda McDonald chose Hawaiian Paradise Park
I fell in love with the home in 2004 the location is unbelievably beautiful and the ocean can be seen from all rooms on the property. Our home is easy to get to from the Hilo International Airport and I can get our supplies and get home in 20 minutes after a tiring flight.The home is our retirement home which we are enjoying renting to travelers like yourself. Aloha.
What makes this House unique
This is beautiful home besides a place to sleep eat and clean up it has many amenities that can't be beat. Sitting out back in the morning having tea and watching the sun rise, or feeling the cool breeze in the afternoon heat. Oceanfront is very special few homes have this distinction, ocean views, the sound, and taste of salt on your lips. I love to take a night time swim in the salt pool or a morning swim to wake me up:) It's the ideal home for the family vacation staying in a safe, neighborhood setting close to shopping, restaurants and all kinds of recreation.

Comfy home with great views!!
The layout of the home was large enough for 8 adults without feeling overcrowded. Having an ocean front view was to die for! Beautiful sunrises, sunsets, and moonlite nights. We watched dolphins swim by and on some nights we could see the volcano glowing in the distance. There is a local farmer's market that sell fresh fruit and vegetables near by. The locations is only 20 minutes away from downtown Hilo and 45 minutes to the volcano.
The house had no A/C, but with the many windows and screen doors, and the fans going the house cooled down.
Everyone in our party loved the house and location! We will definitely book this house again in the future.
We would like to say mahalo nui loa to Alfrieda for having such a wonderful home for us to enjoy!!
Private Peaceful Home
Wow what a week! The home was immaculate. AMAZING views with the best sunrises and sunsets ever, great place to relax and enjoy the scenery. Very private on a quiet road. The owners made us feel right at home with maps, brochures, guest book, and a complete list of where to shop and dine. Thank you!
House looks good from the outside. Nice views. However inside is in need of up grades.
No AC and ceiling fans don't all work. Most sliding doors don't open. Old towels and sheets. Old appliances a lot of bugs in the house and bathrooms. No bath tissue or Kleenex small soaps supposed to last for the week. Quiet neighborhood great view of waves and ocean and sun rise. Depending on traffic about 45 minutes to an hour to Hilo. Older pool had a lot of frogs in the pool. House just needs some upgrades. low water pressure. A list of what not to do was left for us rather than a list of things to do locally. Overall we had a great time in Hawaii. This was our 12 th visit to Hawaii and second to big island. The house was just ok not great. I would not recommend for a stay unless house is upgraded.
I am sorry David you could have called me. I would have sent housekeeping and maintenance. I do provide a phone number. I am always available to take your call.
I am committed to the upkeep inside and out. We do our best twice a year to maintain and upgrade our home. I will be replacing the stove in June in addition a larger water filter system for our spacious house.
This is a clean beautiful vacation home with everything you need fully equipped kitchen and a spacious great room with updated entertainment center.
The salt water pool is cleaned by a professional once a week.
I will always take care of a guest concern given the opportunity. David was clearly upset and didn't call me. Once in a while a guest needs to make that call. It is my job to help you be happy with our accommodations.
I have a currant guest and she loves the house and enjoying the new sliding screen doors. And figured out how to turn the fans on! Thank you David.
Crashing waves right out your back door!
This is a large house right on the shore. We were there during a stormy week with wind and rain, so the waves crashed over the rocks and we weren't able to enjoy either the pool or the patio (just opening the back door you'd get sprayed), but the huge waves were spectacular! There were only 6 of us and we had plenty of room for more. The laundry facilities were very useful since we got wet during our daily adventures. It was a good location for activities at the volcano. We spent one day touring the park and coast, and then a second day hiking to the lava flows (6 hr hike out and back). It's about a 30 min drive to the park entrance. There's a grocery store right as you enter the neighborhood which was very convenient and the kitchen is well equipped to cook meals. We had a great time.
Spacious, comfortable oceanfront home that our whole family enjoyed.
We had a great time with fabulous views and plenty of room. We were lucky to see whales and sea turtles off the back of house! The neighborhood was very safe and friendly. About 30 minutes in one direction we visited the Kapoho tidal pools where you could snorkel and see the most color fish. Right up the road is a thermal pond. Or go 30 minutes toward Hilo and swim with turtles at Carlsmith beach, all for free! We also went zip lining and spent a day at volcano national park as well as day trips to markets and great restaurants. Not to forget that the salt water pool was perfect for anyone that wanted to hang out at the house. Also good to point out that the homeowner was very attentive and addressed any questions we had. There's no question we would stay here again!
What a great family to host.
Thank you for this thoughtful review of your trip. I love the detail of you adventure. I would love to have you all back.
