Paradise Retreat

Guest Rating:

Sleeps 6, 3 bedrooms, 3 bathrooms. No pets allowed.

Keaau, HI 96749 United States

Paradise Retreat is your own private resort on Hawai'i’s Big Island. Relax and enjoy the swimming pool and hot tub in our private, fully enclosed back yard. Lounge poolside in the sun-soaked chaise chairs or stay cool on the covered lanai. In the evenings, enjoy starry nights and listen for the waves crashing just a few blocks away.

The home is designed to collect the island trade-winds and naturally cool the interior, especially during the evening hours with the A/C off and the windows open. Our A/C systems efficiently cools the home during warm days, if necessary, using only solar during the day-light hours.

Our home has been recently updated, is fully furnished and stocked with linens, pool towels and all the kitchen items you'll need for cooking your favorite meals. Water from our well is filtered and UV-treated before entering the home.

Paradise Retreat has three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The main bedroom suite has a king-sized bed, en-suite bathroom with slate tiled shower AND jetted bathtub. The two additional bedrooms share a bathroom with a bathtub and shower. One of these bedrooms has a queen size bed and the other has two twin beds. The third bathroom is in the large laundry room. We provide a washer and dryer for laundry and a starter supply of laundry strips to avoid large plastic detergent jugs.

Located in Keaau just south of Hilo, Paradise Retreat is in a great place for day trips to Volcanoes National Park, Hilo, Pahoa and the heritage Hamakua Coast. Let us point you in the right direction for adventures, cultural sites and ocean activities. Our neighborhood is quiet at night except for the mesmerizing Coqui frogs. Please respect quiet hours 9pm to 8am by keeping noise levels low. If you can’t hear the Coqui’s, it’s too loud. Mahalo nui loa for your green choices, respecting our home, our neighbors and our Island. E Komo Mai!

Paradise Retreat is an eco-friendly get-away and leaves a small carbon footprint on our beautiful island.

Base rental rates are for double occupancy. Additional guests are $25/night up to a maximum occupancy of 6 guests.

    Janet F from Haleiwa, HI recommends this vacation rental

    So glad we chose to stay here. It was very clean and had everything we needed. Jessica was very helpful in answering any questions. Perfect location if you plan to visit the volcano.

    After reading the reviews I was concerned about the air-condition not being in two of the bedrooms.. It was not an issue and we were there in the heat of July.

    We would definitely stay here again.

    Sherry S from Santa Rosa, CA recommends this vacation rental

    The home was better than in the pictures! Very clean. Felt like a tropical rain forest paradise. Quiet and private. Perfect honeymoon. Loved listening to the rain and the sounds from frogs and birds at night. Conveniently located for Volcano National Park, Zip lining and Botanical Gardens. Had great suggestions, for swimming and hikes, listed in the welcome binder. Saltwater Vacation was very helpful from the time we booked, during check in and till the very end. We are looking forward to returning very soon.

    a guest from Lexington, Massachusetts recommends this vacation rental

    We had a lovely 3-night stay at Paradise Retreat; the property is beautifully landscaped and we spent as much time outside as we could to enjoy it—the pool, lack of light pollution, and singing birds made it easy to do!

    There were strict instructions not to use the hot tub (which we didn’t mind, but that it is mentioned in the listing is confusing; similarly the listing photos showed one extra bed in the laundry room which has now been converted into an office. Again we were able to work it out by having our kids share a room but just FYI—that said, if we could work remotely we would’ve wanted to stay longer—or forever?!—it would’ve been a perfect setup with the bedrooms on the other side of the L-shaped ranch!).

    The mini splits made it easy to cool the kitchen and master bedroom—and fans in the other rooms helped to move the air around, but it definitely took a few hours before the smaller bedrooms cooled down enough for my kids to be able to fall asleep, so just remember to get the air moving as soon as you get into the house. After the first night it wasn’t a problem at all as we kept the windows cracked open to keep the air moving.

    There were plenty of dishes, glassware, silverware, etc which made cooking quite easy (unlike some rentals where they just have 4 plates and you’re constantly running the dishwasher).

    We had a mixup of address and gate code provided to us prior to check in, but the local contact was very responsive so when we had an issue it was quickly resolved.

    • Manager Responded on 4/4/2022

      Mahalo nui for your review, Tracy!! We are so happy you enjoyed your visit at Paradise Retreat. Sorry about the confusing instructions. The previous owner didn't want people using the hot tub, but the current owners are happy to provide that amenity. If you come stay again, we highly recommend turning the AC off, opening the sliding doors and windows and turning on the ceiling fans. It's really not needed in our perfect climate with average highs of 82 degrees Fahrenheit year round. We all live here and none of us have AC in our personal residences. But we know that many guests won't consider a vacation rental without AC - even if its not at all needed ;-) Take care and please keep us in mind if your travels bring you back this way. We would host you again, anytime! Warmest Aloha, The Salt Water Hawaii Vacations Crew

    Brian F from Whitman, MA recommends this vacation rental

    My wife and I were lucky enough to stay here for our honey moon and it was perfect. It was just what we were looking for. It was secluded enough where it didn’t feel as if we were in the middle of a tourist attraction and yet close enough to the city of Hilo that everything was in an arms reach. The scenery and amenities of the house were incredible. We intend on coming back every 5 years for our anniversary with our children. Highly recommend!

    • Manager Responded on 3/28/2022

      Mahalo nui for your review, Brian! We are thrilled that you chose us for part of your special celebration, and are over the moon that you plan to return in the coming years :-D CONGRATS on your marriage and we look forward to hosting you and your family in the future!!

    a guest from Honolulu, HI recommends this vacation rental

    This vacation rental is a treasure nestled away in Hilo’s luxurious community. The landscaping is beautiful and provides a complete barrier from surrounding homes to give it a “resort” feel. Although we visited in December and the pool was too cool to enjoy, we still thoroughly enjoyed the pool side view. The home is very beautiful and has ample room for the family. It was more beautiful than I had anticipated, very clean, and beautifully decorated! We hope to come back and stay again! Thank you for providing our family with luxury and relaxation!

    Overall satisfaction:

    a guest from N/A, CO recommends this vacation rental

    We had a party of five stay for 9 nights. The pool was lovely and it was great to have access to a washer and dryer. The location is quiet, which is what we were looking for. We have family in Hilo, in Keaau, Pahoa, and the volcano area, so it was a drive, but not too far for each location. We also really liked the yard, which has beautiful plantings. The two smaller bedrooms are warmer than the rooms with AC, and there are only 4 dining chairs, which are counter level, so you can’t put more than 4 at the table at once. Overall, we had a great stay.

    • Manager Responded on 7/1/2021

      Thank you Lisa! Some pretty major upgrades are happening at the house summer of 2021 so we hope you'll come again and have an even better experience! Aloha, Jess, Shawna and The Salt Water Crew
