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.
My wife and I stayed here for the month of February 2017. It was very relaxing which is exactly what we were looking for. The deck is furnished nicely and the perfect spot to read, talk and listen to music. There are also a variety of activities close by if that is what you are looking for. The views are the some of the most amazing we have ever experienced on a vacation. You won't fully appreciate them until you see them in person. We did most of our cooking at the home and purchased most of our food from the local grocery store in Captain Cook. They have about everything you need and are about 20 minutes away. Several times we used the grill on the deck to cook dinner. What a great place to have your happy hour, see the sunset and then cook and eat dinner. Even when cooking in the kitchen (which is provisioned nicely) you still experience the views & the Hawaiian atmosphere. The home is set up nicely with the driveway, and the main floor (bedrooms, kitchen & living room) on the same level. The wood used to construct the home is beautiful. The local beach is very nice but you will need your beach shoes as the sand mostly consisted of small peebles and the waves could be a little rough. There is another nice beach about 15 minutes away called Ho'okena which has nicer sand and is a little calmer for water activities. If you are looking for shopping or restaurants Kona and Ali's Drive are probably the closest place and are just under an hour away. There are many other sites to see close to the home. You can find these listed in the travel book provided in the home. We did visit Volcano National Park which is a must in our opinion but allow a long day to see all of this. We also visited Hilo and the north east coast on the other side of the island. These were beautiful but we decided we preferred the sunny west side of the island. One more tourist attraction to mention is the Punalu’u Black Sand Beach Park near the south tip of the island and the Punalu'u Bake Shop on the way. The beach almost always has the large green sea turtles and the bake shop has some nice baked goods, ice cream and sandwiches. You should also have a breakfast of lunch at the Coffee Shack on Rt 12. We will come back again. Mike and Lisa work hard to maintain the property and provide a great place to visit...thanks.
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!
Enjoy swimming, diving, snorkeling and kayaking from Kaohe Bay just a short 5 minute walk from the house.
Walk the historic Kings Trail to other secluded beaches and an ancient cinder cone.
Visit a working coffee farm and explore the ancient City of Refuge (Pu`uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park) located approximately 20 minutes from the house.
Visit Volcano National Park - an easy 1.5 hr. drive from the house.
