Paradise Bluff is a beautiful home perched on the cliffs of the small seaside town of Laupahoehoe. Relax, take a deep breath, and enjoy the Aloha spirit and traditions of the Big Island of Hawaii. Located on the spectacular Hamakua Coast between Hilo and Waimea, Paradise Bluff spans 288 ft. of coastline and overlooks historical Laupahoehoe Point. The sweeping 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, tropical gardens, and private decks all combine to make a uniquely-breathtaking retreat. You may use this awesome home as a convenient jumping-off point to many of the famous Big Island sites, or you may simply choose to escape from it all, relax on the lanais, and enjoy the exotic birds, crashing blue surf, swaying palm trees, and rainbow-colored geckos. Paradise Bluff is a destination in itself.

Paradise Bluff features a luxurious top floor Master suite, complete with a king sized bed, wall-mounted flat screen TV, large walk-in shower (with two shower heads), elegant ”spa-like” bathroom, coffee station and fridge, private deck, and an oversized dressing room. The bedroom's vaulted ceilings and ceiling fan help circulate the ocean breezes. The huge sun deck allows for private sunbathing with spectacular views of Laupahoehoe Point in the distance. A unique spiral staircase connects the top floor with the main floor.

The spacious main floor has a newly-remodeled kitchen with island bar, separate dining room, large living room, utility/laundry room, and two more bedrooms with king sized beds, flat screen TV's and beautiful en-suite bathrooms with showers. The large dining room has a vaulted ceiling and a solid mango table that seats six.

Two more decks (one covered and one sun deck) are located off the living room. The covered wrap-around deck has an elegant teak dining table for six. Step down to the smaller lower deck to find the Weber gas grill and a chaise lounge for sun-bathing. All the decks are newly tiled and overlook the water; it really feels like you’re living in the Presidential Suite on the forward bow of a cruise ship – without the crowds and buffets!

Laupahoehoe is a small town with its roots in the sugar-industry. Today, it has a beautiful beach park, post-office, police station, one restaurant, Train Museum, and a fantastic open-air eight-lane public swimming pool (with lifeguard) that is free to the public. Just a few minutes away is the recently-renovated 100 year old Papaaloa Country Store and Café with its a fabulous bakery, sandwiches, and burgers, along with a wide selection of groceries and fresh produce.

About 20 minutes’ drive north is Honokaa Town, the gateway to famed Waipio Valley. Honokaa has several good shops and restaurants and a wonderful FirstFriday art and shop walk the first Friday of every month. Hilo, 35 minutes to the south and Waimea, 45 minutes to the northwest, both provide a variety of restaurants, shops, nightlife and unique local attractions like zip-lining, botanical gardens, and farmer's markets. One hour west of Paradise Bluff is the famous Hapuna Beach and several world-class beach resorts with great golf courses.

This is a Hawaii County licensed short term rental.

"Great place to stay to explore the Big Island
We stayed here in May for 7 nights. The house was great with great views of the coast and Pacific Ocean. In fact, the backyard to this house is the Pacific ocean. The house was very clean and the beds were comfortable. Each bedroom has their own bathroom. There is parking off the road but it's a little tight for more than two cars but for one car is fine. The location is great. Very quiet neighborhood and only 30 miles north of Hilo.
The only complaint is for the shower in the front downstairs bedroom, it needs to be updated like the rest of the two bathroom showers. We had a great time and would highly recommend the Paradise Bluff house as a home base to explore the Big Island. "

"What an awesome vacation!
We had an amazing time at this home. In the past we've stayed at condos and usually choose the penthouse. To have this beautiful house all to ourselves with the incredible views was priceless. Communication was excellent with the Host! We had a minor issue and it was handled ASAP. Highly recommend this house! Some days we preferred to stay home vs explore the island as our views were superb."

"Wake up in paradise
The pictures don't do this property justice. It is extremely clean and you cannot beat the views. We were never wanting for anything. There is snorkeling equipment, games, lawn chairs, coolers, really anything you need as well as a well stocked kitchen. The only thing I would mention is that one of the bedrooms doesn't have AC so you do hear the frogs at night, so if you think the noise will bother you bring a white noise machine. "

"Most Beautiful View and Lovely Lanais
The house is charming, clean and well cared for, we didn't encounter any bugs (I mean a couple, but none of the big scary ones), bathrooms clean and functional, the kitchen well outfitted for cooking anything. The view is the most beautiful I have ever encountered, in house, hotel, or AirBnB, and there are plenty of balconies and a gorgeous lanai and a lush and beautiful garden to enjoy it from. Also, the owner does not have a surprise list of onerous chores to do at the end, just reasonable requests. Clear instructions. An easy to navigate one-story set of stairs to enter the house. Each bedroom suite has a big comfortable bed and separate bathroom. Big dining room. Huge laundry room. Everything was perfect."

"Family holiday
Absolutely stunning home in gorgeous grounds with an amazing view
Loved our stay with our young adult family. Large home and well appointed. Just make sure you take food as there really is only 1 small store a minute drive away
Other than that it was sublime"

"Great house-great vacation
We spent five days at Paradise Bluff with our daughter and son in law and thoroughly enjoyed it. The views were top notch from virtually every part of the house which is what first attracted me to it when booking. Plan on using the kitchen as the restaurant scene nearby is limited. If you want crowds and tourists go to Kona instead."

"Paradise Bluff
We (4 adults) enjoyed Paradise Bluff after 7 days in Maui. Communication with the Saltwater team was excellent. The property is beautiful and peaceful with breathtaking ocean views. Clean, comfortable and well equipped. Plenty of space to gather, be alone, work if needed or prepare a meal (Tried the Huli Huli chicken recipe in the book - great!). We toured a coffee farm, chocolate farm, Akaka Falls, Hawai'i Volcanoes National Park, Laupahoehoe Point, Waipio Valley, snorkeling, Pu'uhonua o Honaunau Historic Park and had a great meal at Jackie Reys in Hilo. Wonderful vacation! We hope to visit Paradise Bluff again. Mahalo"

"Paradise in Laupahoehoe
The house was fantastic. Well appointed and the views were unbeatable. We saw pods of humpback whales from the lanais. The house was very clean and the kitchen well equipped. My wife and I stayed in the master bedroom which is on the top floor of the house. The views were spectacular "

"Excellent vacation in big island
It was a great experience to stay at this property. It was serene, peaceful and like a dream come true. Home has everything you need for a memorable vacation, location and views from various parts of home are simply unbelievable. We stayed for four days

Pictures can’t describe experience one can have staying at this home. We would love to stay here again, maybe just longer time!"

"Cliffside house
Our family of five stayed 5 days at this house. The views are amazing. The house was clean and oriented to be protected from the sun but maximizing the views. The master bedroom views are incredible and we even had night views with a full moon (!).

We spent our time doing activities from Hilo north (hiking, zip lining, helicopter from Hilo) and 2 days doing activities on the Hilo side.

Overall very satisfied with our stay. "

"Lovely Paradise
The house was very comfortable and well equipped. The views are out of this world. We had double rainbows below the home twice. The upstairs office was great place to work. Well equipped kitchen with quality utensils and a rice cooker!! Saltwater Management was extremely responsive and helpful. Would definitely stay here again."

"Wonderful stay
Paradise Bluff was perfect. The place was very clean and a perfect place for our vacation. If I had any complaint, it would be that the air conditioners may not be enough to keep the place nice and cool - especially in the back bedroom where there is no AC unit. Not enough to drop any stars. "

"Breathtaking Views...Love Love Love
Amazing coastal views! The house is so nicely decorated and has characters. We have uninvited guests ( and it pleasant surprise. We really enjoyed our stay and definitely will be back. Mahalo. ��"

"Family vacation
This was a great vacation home. The views were awesome. The home was beautiful and had everything we needed for a week long stay in Hawaii. The owner thought of everything. I would definitely stay here again. "

"Gorgeous accommodation!
We had a wonderful stay at Paradise Bluff. The views are even better in person than the pictures and the house is fully stocked with everything you need. I would highly recommend the property."

"Delightful home!
This is a beautiful home in an amazing location with a fabulous view. The kitchen was extremely well stocked and the entire home was very very clean. Highly recommend going to beach park pictured at the point. The price was very reasonable especially by Hawaiian standards."

Perfect. "

"So very beautiful!
From the view to the primary BR with its own deck to the yard that surrounds it. We were blown away"
Aug 19, 2021 - , Benicia , CA

"Spectacular in every way!
This was our second time staying at Paradise Bluff. We were already blown away by the views, its beauty, cleanliness and conveniences the first time.. This time, on top of perfection, we were greeted by a stunningly renovated kitchen with top of the line appliances. We chose to cook at home most of the time. How could we not? The beautiful range was so inviting :)
This is an amazing home in an amazing location. A small grocery shop/restaurant nearby provided for excellent meals and all necessities. Location is in-between fabulous shopping/farmers market in Hilo and knock out Hapuna beach on the West side. We so didn't want to leave!"

"Gorgeous cliff house views!
I recently visited the big island with my family and this property was perfect for our group of 6. It was about a 30 minute drive to Hilo if you’re looking for dining options, but otherwise it was situated in a quiet area where you can get in all of your rest and relaxation. The sunrise views were unbeatable and the property had everything our family needed. We miss it already!"

"Great oceanfront house
We enjoyed our stay as the house had amazing views,is well stocked and perfectly located on the coast for our needs. We would stay again if we need to return to that area."

"Perfect Private Getaway Place
Beautiful views! We saw whales! The house was beautifully furnished with all the amenities and everything was in good working order. We even left some earrings and were notified immediately so we could return and pick them up. Our only complaint is the beds were a little hard and uncomfortable, but that wouldn’t stop us from coming back. "

"beautiful view
We really enjoyed our stay at paradise bluff. Obviously, the major selling point of that property is its breathtaking view. That part was truly incredible. So why four stars instead of five? A couple of reasons:
- one of the bedrooms was much nicer than the other two. That can make sharing with another couple / person a bit uncomfortable.
- the bedding in two of the bedrooms could stand to be changed soon. One mattress in particular had a clear dip in the middle.
- some of the pillows and one of the mattresses were wrapped in plasticky paper cases that crinkled when we moved around. Probably for protection, but not the most comfortable.
- The water was potable but very chlorinated (not the owner's fault of course, this was city water) but it was to the point we could taste it in the coffee we made. Because that's not something we were used to, we ended up buying a lot of bottled water. I'm usually very anti single-use plastics and so to me that was a drawback.
Those are all minor things, of course, and I wouldn't have mentioned them with a cheaper property. Considering the cost of rental, though, I think a few tweaks would make a big difference!
All in all we had a wonderful time and were truly sad to leave Paradise Bluff! Thank you again for hosting us.

"Top choice on Hamakua coast
We are frequent visitors (6 times in 2019) and have rented many houses along the coast. This was our favorite because of the great views and the many ameneties of the house."
