For all of you who are “on-the-fence” about where to stay in Hawaii, we would like to share some important things to consider.
When it comes to airfare, renting a car, food, gas and misc. expenses, everyone who ventures out to Hawaii will pretty much pay the same price. The real difference is the lodging. A lot of people overlook this important decision and often find themselves having a sub par vacation based on where they ended up staying. 'We get it! ' You thought that you would save a few bucks, however, the few bucks that you saved on paper did
nothing to ultimately enhance your trip.
That's where Simple Pleasures makes a difference.
For the value, we offer a clean, comfortable and elegant accommodation that will absolutely enhance your stay in Hawaii.
We invite you to view our photos and video to see the difference.
We are offering the Penthouse level of our 5,000 sq. ft recently finished Beach home starting at $175.00. You get the top floor, 2 bedroom, 2 full bathroom, huge penthouse suite that sleeps 5. All of our amenities are clean, custom and brand new! The rest of the house is officially closed, which means no other people will stay in this Huge Home or on the property while you are there. Lastly, this Hawaiian Palace is only a 5 min. walk to the beach! What more can we say? it is a fantastic deal. Please compare our photos and videos with others on the site. Our aim is to get it right, and make sure our guests are happy.
If this makes sense to you please read on and get more details. Aloha! Simple Pleasures.
Our official Property Description
From the start, the concept behind this truly majestic build was very clear, tastefully work with the land, capture its essence, and “Keep it Simple.”
The Hawaiian Islands are simply one of the world’s most desirable locations, truly a tropical paradise beyond compare. A perfect fit for a once in a lifetime opportunity to build a once in a lifetime dream. With that said, we warmly offer our personal contribution to the islands by launching our most beautiful creation to date, “Simple Pleasures”.
Situated approximately 45 minutes south of Kailua- Kona, Simple Pleasures is close enough to partake in all of Kona’s nightlife yet far enough away to marinate in a real feeling of authentic Hawaiian lifestyle. Once you set foot on the property, it will be obvious that your new Hawaiian home was the right choice. This freshly finished 2012 custom home is easily on par with the highest of high-end resorts, but at nearly half the cost.
Our “ Plumeria Lined Paradise”, a five minute walk to the beach, not only offers some of the most magnificent ocean views, but our guests will appreciate the natural breezes from the Hawaiian trade winds lufting through our 16ft ceilings. Luxurious stone floors were thoughtfully placed in all common areas to ensure our guests keep cool. The full size custom bathrooms, made of both stone and marble, enjoy upgraded touches such as custom cabinets, vessel sinks and bidets to enhance your experience. For the utmost comfort, each bedroom has been outfitted with luxury hotel grade queen size pillow-top mattresses, finished off with mahogany sleigh bed frames. Additionally, the bedrooms include mahogany hardwood floors, your own private bath, wireless internet, and safe deposit boxes. Our tastefully executed kitchen, designed to be a “social kitchen”, places the cook in a position that faces the entire living room, lanai and all guests while preparing meals whether dining indoors or using the formal dining table outdoors on the lanai. Last but not least, the crown jewel of Simple Pleasures is our 1,000-sq.ft ocean facing lanai. You can easily see 40 miles of spectacular coastline views in each direction! It really equates to being the ultimate outdoor living room on the property. This is where all the sunsets, whale watching and outdoor socializing happens. Whether it is a glass of wine, reading a book, or stretching out on the 8ft. daybed, this spot is all Hawaii. From our vantage point, the mixture of fresh floral air mixed with the tranquil ocean breeze cannot be put into words. This is truly a space to be experienced. With this much space, we also created an outdoor “dining room”. This was brilliant! With million dollar views, this is the perfect spot for our guest to gather and have breakfast before a day of site seeing, lunch after snorkeling at the beach or a beautiful backdrop for a romantic dinner at sunset. It doesn’t get any better.
Simple Pleasures to us means, “seamless harmony”. Understanding that your Hawaii vacation means everything to you and trips like this don’t happen everyday, our focus was to anticipate your needs and exceed your expectations.
We thank you for considering us and wish you nothing but Aloha, and remember,
“Keep it Simple”!

The Owner purchased this house in 2000
To be quite honest, this magical location found us! It was an enormous and very challenging project, but at the end of the day, we are very proud and now wish to share this space with the world.
Some unique benefits of staying at Simple Pleasures is having the opportunity to slow down, check out of life's hustle and bustle and recharge ones soul. Our property not only has some of the most breathtaking views of Hawaii's coastline, but it is often noted by guests as a magical place for good times, bonding and reconnecting.
Aloha, We have spent many vacations on the Big Island, but we never have had such a relaxing time as we had at Simple Pleasures. Great Views and Great Access to all of the big Island.
My wife and I stayed here for a few nights and we couldn't be happier. The view definitely lived up to expectations and then some. Everything was well kept. The kitchen had quality appliances, the balcony was spacious and the high ceilings were beautiful. The drive to Captain Cook also provided amazing views. Would recommend this in a heartbeat.
My wife and I and our son loved staying at this property. Everything was as described and even better. The place was fantastic and even included beach chairs, snorkel equipment and a cooler. We will return here in the future.
What an absolutely beautiful home. The lanai overlooking the ocean with a comfortable sofa bed is the crowning jewel. Every room is elegantly furnished. The kitchen is modern and has everything you will want. The sounds of the ocean are a constant backdrop. 45 minutes from Kona will be a plus for some, a negative for others, but you do get quiet here and a charming neighborhood feel. We would definitely book again!
Had a great time at the place. Outstanding views that make you want to spend entire time on the porch.
Of course our vacation was one of our best ever. Thank you to our hosts for adding my son and his wife at the last minute. Otherwise there was nothing that we needed that was not already supplied. The views are amazing. The road in is steep, but don't worry, you get use to it pretty quickly. At first we thought, "my, we are so far out", then we realized that our choice was perfect for us. Hawaii is a big Island and we were close to some of the best snorkeling available. We were surrounded by dolphins and turtles almost every adventure into the water. And I can't express enough how magical the Manta Ray Magic adventure was. Huge graceful Mantas gliding within inches of us was a experience we will never forget. Don't worry about the geckos and millipedes they are harmless and intriguing. I would like to say if you have your porch light on at night, you'll see moths and geckos everywhere. We loved it. If you do not, keep the light off and they won't show up. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us.
