About Terri & Bill Hughes

Aloha we are Bill & Terri, originally from the Philadelphia area. Bill was stationed on Oahu in the military many years ago, and is a retired trucker. I am currently an accountant for a property management company. We renewed our wedding vows on this very island in 2005. That is how the dream started. We are now semi retired living in paradise. Through VRBO we were able to visit the islands every year affordably before moving here. We want to make the same thing possible for you. Come share the Aloha with us!

Terri & Bill Hughes purchased this apartment in 2011

Why Terri & Bill Hughes chose Kona Palisades

After many years of traveling to Hawaii we chose this property for the quiet and comfortable elevation in a newer neighborhood. Our home is in a new development with underground utilities, so no ugly power lines to spoil the view. It is in close proximity to shopping, dining, and roads that will lead you in any direction, no matter where on the island you want to travel; yet not in the hustle and bustle of town. And it is only a 10 minute drive to the airport, so when you arrive after a long days travel you are only moments away from relaxation instead of half hour drive or more to the hotel. And when you finally do have to say aloha, you can spend those extra precious moments right here enjoying paradise.

What makes this apartment unique

Very clean newer home in desirable neighborhood, for an affordable price. Owner operated, no outside vendors to deal with, your concerns are ours. Smoking is permitted only on outside Lani. Complimentary Kona Coffee and Kona natural soap is supplied. Beautiful view of coast line and only minutes from the airport with a great location to all activities to the north and south ends of the island. For the days you want to just relax there is a comfortable lani for you to enjoy the gentle breeze, beautiful garden and listen to the birds singing. Never too hot or too cold here, after a warm day at the beach you can come home to the Ohana and the weather is perfect.

Superb place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Thanks so much, Terri and Bill, for our wonderful stay with you. We enjoyed every convenience, excellent location, thoughtful insights about island attractions, amenities (Costco gas, Painted Church, Hawi etc) . and, in general, life as islanders. Bill, the property was spotless, so very nicely remodeled and fresh. Loved the coffee and evenings on the patio listening to the birdsongs and enjoying views of the Kona coast. We'd certainly stay again and strongly recommend to others. Our very best to you!

Great property, has everything that a family of 4 needs!

  • 5 of 5

We - family of 4 with 2 young kids - stayed @Bill and Terry's the week of Feb 12th through Feb 19th. We really enjoyed and appreciated their hospitality!

Bill took care of everything we needed while we were there - besides being very well stocked, he helped us with our ad-hoc requests too (e.g., ponchos, umbrella). He welcomed us with super-fresh muffins, orange juice (from freshly picked oranges), and gave my daughter a nice parting souvenir (boat shaped leaves from a native tree).

The house is exactly as advertised in the pictures - great lanai, cozy bedroom, and a (compact) living/kitchen area.

Also the property is close to the airport, Costco, and Walmart, which was very convenient.

Property is in a nice neighbourhood and very close to the Kona airport

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Terri were very gracious hosts and the apartment was amazing. It had everything that you would need and then some. Bill was very helpful and gave a lot of great advice on what to see and do around the island. All of his suggestions were excellent. The place itself was very new looking and very clean. It was the perfect place to stay for our last few days in Hawaii. Thanks Bill and Terri you made our stay amazing.

We loved our stay here!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to Bill and Terri's ohana, and we hope to go back again. Bill and Terri are the kindest, friendliest people you will meet. Their property is beautiful, both inside and out. Anything we needed was provided, including beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and coolers for our day of adventures. We spent hours sitting on the lanai with our coffee in the morning, listening to the various birds singing. Evenings were spent watching the sunset, grilling local fish and eating outside. We enjoyed the bananas, papayas and oranges Bill and Terri shared with us (and some cookies Terri baked!).

We can't say enough about how much we enjoy our time at this VRBO.

Until next time,

Jason, Dawn and Maclaren

Historic Kailua Kona Village, a quiet seaside town located on the west side of the island. The home of King Kamehameha the Great! The very first capitol of the United Hawaiian Kingdom. Great snorkeling, fishing, and just getting a sun tan beaches. Our home is located about 15 minutes from these places at about 1,000 ft or 0.304 kilometers. Pu' uhonua o Honaunau National Historical Park (Place of Refuge) is just a short drive to the south. Many upper mountain roads to the north to cattle ranch areas are easily accessible from our home. Volcanoes National Park is however a two hour drive. Mauna Kea or the (White Mountain) is only an hour away where you can see the stars above the clouds at the top of the world, 14000 ft or 4.267 kilometers. This is just a sample of the Big beautiful island. 13 climate zones in the entire world and we have 11 of them on the Big Island.
