About the property

Relax, Rejuvenate, Rediscover. Stunning Unobstructed Ocean Views and Breezes.

Aloha! Welcome to our little corner of Paradise - in Kona Paradise. Come feel the difference staying at Blue Hawaii makes. Come relax, rejuvenate, and rediscover.

Our property is located 34.5 miles south of the Kailua-Kona airport (KOA) , this beautifully maintained Hawaiian’ a style single family home, away from home, boasts 180° of unobstructed pacific ocean views, modern amenities, and a large covered, open and breezy lanai. The home is one story-NO stairs. Easy access. And fantastic one of a kind VIEWS!!

The home is in a beautiful cliffside community, close to the water, close to town and close to Volcano National Park (Kilauea). This is where you come for peace and quiet. To stare at the stars, listen to the waves crash and hear tropical birds and wild animals every day. If you want to hang in Kona - you're only a 45 minute drive a way.

The property is set on ancient lava flows, overlooking the vast pacific ocean, the King's Trail, an ancient volcanic cinder cone, a private pebble beach (1/2 mile away by car-4 minutes to the water), and some of the best snorkeling/diving on the Kona coast (NO Sand). The water is so perfect for diving and snorkeling, that the infamous Aggressor dive boat anchors off our community's coastline daily.

We call our hale (house) Blue Hawaii. It is our way of taking you back to a simpler time. We have made every effort to immerse you in Hawaiian history while keeping amenities modern, comfortable, and functional to create a memorable stay.

Entering this contemporary, single level, 3 bedroom, 2 full bath, private home in Kona Paradise the views instantly mesmerize you. You find yourself drawn to the sky, the water, and the lulling sounds of the ocean lapping the pebble beach below. Falling asleep to these sounds every night may make you want to stay here forever, it did us.

Blue Hawaii comfortably sleeps 2-6 adults, with one Cal-king bed in the master which has an oversized closet with additional storage in end tables and credenza, a safe, and a television with remote.

The lanai is nothing but ocean views and tropical breezes. An electric BBQ, cushioned swivel conversation set with brass relief side table and glass top dining table for 4-6 make this the place to be every day of your stay.

About Joni Wiggins & Jim Vastola

Our busy lives working in Event Production and Escrow Signings left little time to enjoy our vacations, so as we started to approach retirement age we wanted to find a home we could enjoy and share for years to come. So when the opportunity finally presented itself, we jumped on it. We call our little piece of heaven 'Blue Hawaii'. And when you see it you'll know why.

Joni Wiggins & Jim Vastola purchased this house in 2014

Why Joni Wiggins & Jim Vastola chose Kona Coast

A friend offered up his Kona Vacation Rental to us for Thanksgiving 2013. We arrived at the airport, got our rental car and stopped as suggested at Costco on the way down. After stocking up on a week's worth of supplies like coffee, steaks, wine, and beer, we headed south. When we saw the Kona Paradise sign, made the right hand turn onto Kaohe Road and started down that winding, breathtaking hill, we knew we were in for something beyond special-it was spectacular.

After unloading the car, we found ourselves mesmerized by the most amazing 180° coastal views of the Kona coast. This wasn't just a vacation rental on an island in the pacific - this was a stunningly beautiful oasis that we had all to ourselves for a whole week.

We could hear the ocean raking over the black pebbles on the beach below us. We watched for whales breaching, and dolphins cruising the coastline looking for fun and frolic. We slept among the stars out on the lanai the entire time and swore that if an opportunity arose we would make this area our home some day. In 2014, we purchased Blue Hawaii. Our dream come true. It brought peace and serenity to our hearts and minds. Took us from our hustle and bustle go-go-go lifestyle on the mainland and brought us back to what was important. Us. Happy and laid back. Loving life. We hope your stay at Blue Hawaii can bring something back into your life that you perhaps have forgotten. Maybe a little relaxation, rejuvenation, and rediscovery.

The photos are great but the reality is better

  • 5 of 5

We were pleasantly surprised by this rental. Lots of extras with this property but our favorite parts are the lanai, the modern kitchen/appliances, the overall cleanliness of the property and the labels that help you know what to do when it isn't already obvious. It's a bit of a drive to the stores but the solitude is totally worth it. If I ever get to move to Hawaii I would want to live in this area.

Expansive unobstructed view

  • 5 of 5

Our party of 4 loved Blue Hawaii. It was further south than we had anticipated but it gave us more timely access to snorkel sites even further south that we had not yet experienced in our previous visits to the Island (such as the Tide Pools). The home was well-appointed and comfortable. The many extras such as a variety of games was appreciated (although the low lighting gave our eyes a workout!). The view from the deck was amazing and the sunsets spectacular.

Comfort and Splendid Views!

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful house with panoramic ocean views located in a quiet and pleasant sub-development about 20 minutes south of Captain Cook. We found it perfectly clean and well-maintained in every respect. It is spacious and super-comfortable. The lanai is a piece of heaven on earth! Had we not been active people, we could easily have simply indulged all day in the comforts of home. The kitchen is very well-equipped, which was helpful since we did not want to spend too much time on the road. We liked the black pebble beach at the bottom of the road and the walk gives you quite a work-out since the road is very steep. The beach at Ho'okena nearby was a great alternative, and more child-friendly.

We would have loved to extend our stay, and would gladly repeat!

Get away from it all in paradise

  • 5 of 5

After flying all day from the east coast and arriving on the island after dark, I started questioning whether we had made a mistake in booking a property so far from Kona. In reality it isn't that far; but when you are tired, it is dark and the roads are unfamiliar, it feels far. On seeing the house, my worries were immediately put to rest. The next morning as we were having breakfast out on the lanai, listening to the birds, taking in the expansive view and watching the waves roll in below, I remembered that we booked this place intentionally. We wanted to get away from it all. In reality we were only about 45 minutes from all that Kona had to offer (and frankly, most of what it had to offer is what we were trying to get away from in the first place!). Minutes down the hill is a quiet, black pebble beach that during the week was pretty much deserted. Excellent snorkeling is just 20 minutes up the road at Two Steps. Coffee plantations and little coffee shops abound here in the heart of the Kona coffee belt. The best grocery store we found on the island (we thought better prices and produce than Safeway, etc) is just 20 minutes up the road in Captain Cook. Also nearby is Da Poke Shack, with fresh, local fare. Also check out Randy's Huli Chicken (skip the ribs and go straight for the chicken!). We brought one home and thought it was the best rotisserie chicken we'd ever eaten. With all the activities there are to do in the area, just relaxing at the house proved to be at the top of the list. I have no complaints about the property as the owners truly thought of everything. The kitchen is very well stocked. The beach gear that was provided (towels, chairs, blankets, mats, umbrellas, cooler, snorkeling gear, flotation noodles) allowed us to pack lighter and save on rentals. Everything was clean and in working condition. I highly recommend this location. Our only regret was leaving!
