We fell in love with the Big Island in 2000 and built Hale E Komo Mai in 2011. Now we are building new memories with our family, friends, and especially our grandchildren. We look forward to coming back to Hawaii each year while continuing to explore this vast and beautifully diverse island.
Aki and Laura Lintunen purchased this estate in 2011
We are excited to share our 'impractical dream' with you, with a relaxing home to return to after a full day of activities and exploring. You will be surrounded by lush, tropical vegetation and a peaceful neighborhood. We looked at many areas on the Big Island and chose Hawaiian Paradise Park for its acreage that provides quiet and privacy, while still being central to the ocean, trails, parks, restaurants and nearby shopping.
A unique and modern home designed with covered walkways that connect all areas. Impressive lava rock columns, circular planter with seating, and an outstanding outdoor shower were all hand shaped by a local craftsman. The home maximizes light and captures the trade winds and breezes, with sweet scents drifting indoors from the professionally landscaped gardens. The home is large, yet very comfortable for a couple or a large family. The grassed yard is great for the kids to play, to have a game of bocci ball or croquet, or to just relax on the lounge chairs while enjoying all the tropical trees, fruit trees and scented plants and flowers.
Very nice and quiet neighborhood. Roomy and well appointed. Has everything you need. Seating on the outdoor patio looking over the lush garden is truly relaxing and memorable!
We were thoroughly satisfied staying at this very beautiful and unique property. The home in very spacious with a large family/living room space with 18 ft ceilings. This place is approaching classy / deluxe status, more than I expected.
Their are fans throughout the house so no shortage of airflow. The well done, hip IKEA kitchen (very well stocked) on one end with sliding glass window, nice furniture and giant TV in the middle and an awesome super-wide sliding glass window facing a perfect covered lanai and an expanse of lawn rimed with pretty tropical trees, flowering shrubs. The covered patio area is enormous, comfortable with 2 fans and pretty planting beds running along part of the patio created with dark lava rock. We spotted a family of pigs in the front yard the first morning. Not Boers, just domestic pigs that at some point were left to live on their own, which they do quite well.
On each side of the main room described are hallways with full bathroom/showers. I think it was all designed to create airflow through these side channels and sliding glass windows on both ends. One side has the master bedrm, nice furniture, comfy bed, sliding window opens to patio, very fancy bathroom, walk-in shower, etc. The other side has a matching larger bedrm w sliding window to patio, and another bedrm in the middle of the hall w just windows above the queen bed.
There is the guest house next door. A nice couple was there for 1 night while we stayed. It's far enough one the side and away to not be a intrusive. There's a laundry room that they had a key to to do laundry. Locked doors on both sides. Lots of supplies in the laundry room too.
Last, we met Scott a couple of times. Really nice guy, lots of info and basically an interesting person I could have talked with for hours. But both times we were on our way and my wife was tapping her foot waiting on me to stop the chit-chat. If I was there much longer I probably would have offered to help with his garden work.
This is the longest review I've ever left, for good reason though. This place couldn't be much better, really. Ok, well, the cable TV was tough to figure out even thoguh they had very detailed instructions--photos, arrows--still I ended up just using my roku box.
We only planned 3 nights here but upon leaving thought how it should have been longer. It's a special place.
We were so pleasantly surprised by this beautiful amazing home. Started our vacation off just perfectly. The house is so spacious and wonderfully designed. My husband was concerned with the lack of air conditioning but we soon discovered it was not needed with the climate being so cool. There was plenty of room for all our children to have their space and for us adults to have ours as well. The accommodations along with all the amenities were just ideal!!!
We really loved the house. We stayed there for 3 nights in order to see the Hilo part of the island and the volcano. The house is very beautiful, it is located in the rural area. Thank you for letting us to rent your house, we enjoyed staying there.
Staying in this luxurious home was as comfortable as being in our own home. Laura and Aki were a pleasure to deal with, and their home in paradise is supplied with everything that you could want or need. The grounds are like a park. We felt very spoiled being able to go out to the tropical fruit orchard at the back of the property to pick fresh oranges and star fruit for breakfast, and fresh limes for the gin and tonics on the lanai in the evening. The freedom to move around the large house and grounds, compared to staying in a condo, is wonderful. We cooked a number of our own meals in the gourmet kitchen, and everything we needed in terms of utensils and appliances was close at hand. We can unreservedly recommend a relaxing stay at this gem near Hilo.
We enjoyed the peaceful, bright and lovely accomodations of the Ohana. The bed was comfortable, it was lovely to fall asleep to the sounds of nature. We got to enjoy delicious fruit from the trees in the garden including lemon/ lime juice, mandarine oranges, star fruit and the most amazing avacados I have ever tasted!
We enjoyed the adventurous walks along the water, snorkeling in tide pools, exploring the volcanic sights, swimming in the local (free) pool and exploring the local village. I highly recommend this as a true Hawaiian local experience. We spent 2 weeks and had the best weather and felt completely relaxed and rejuivinated! This is one of those must experience kind of vacations!!!
This recently finished modern and luxurious home is located in Hawaiian Paradise Park, which is a quiet, agriculturally zoned subdivision with over 100 miles of private road. The main roads are fully paved with most side roads comprised of compacted cinder, ideal for walking, running or cycling. There is about 4 miles of oceanfront with fantastic hiking on the trail abutting the ocean cliffs. Nearby towns of Pahoa (laid back) and Keaau (toward Hilo) offer many shopping amenities within a short drive; historical Hilo town and many restaurant options are only 12 miles away. A quiet country retreat yet close to amenities and conveniences. Explore the nearby hot ponds, Lava Tree State Park, Kapoho Tide Pools for fantastic snorkeling, and the scenic red road drive to the Kalapana lava area. Or, take the jaw-dropping Hamakua coastal drive, on the way to 'Kona side.'
