Aloha!

My name is Kathy Doran. I am the owner of this beautiful Hawaiian vacation home. I actually bought it as my retirement home, then my daughter had children and I could not live away from my grand-babies. So, lucky you, my house is available!

This home has a beautiful ocean view. It is perfect for family reunions and large groups. 12 people can sleep in beds and we have futons and port-a-cribs for additional sleeping. I have a wonderful property manager. Her name is Char Noble and her phone number is 808-44three-1seven3one. Please do not call her to book this unit. She will help any of our guests though and her number is provided at the house. She is a local person, so she has many connections on the island and can help with your needs, such as a chef to cook that special meal. I don't book my property until I have shown the prospective guest the house on my website, so that you know the layout and if the house can accommodate your group. The house is located in a quiet family neighborhood. I operate a legal unit and conscientiously pay my taxes on this rental. My tax ID number is Wthree0onefive4threetwo6-zerotwo.

Some of our guest's favorite things about this house are:

Enjoying the gentle way the warm tropical breezes blow through the palms.

Watching the way exotic Hawaiian birds and island geckos dart about.

Visiting the orchids, ginger and heliconia, misty in the morning as you stroll through the lush garden.

Swimming in the clear, aquamarine solar heated pool, day or night.

Having such a spacious layout that provides many opportunities for entertaining, or just for solitude.

Best of all, watching for the green flash as sunset unfolds after a perfect idyllic tropical day in paradise.

Perfect for all ages

  • 5 of 5
We loved this property. We were there for 4 weeks with various guests. Each and everyone of them loved the home and the privacy of the decks and pool. A pool to ourselves - how nice!
Our young grandchildren said having the pool was the best part of the trip.
The owner was very attentive as were her property managers. We all love to cook and the kitchen did not disappoint! Like being at home. Our weather was great so all in all it was a greata vacation.
Thanks,
Rose and family.
We recommend this home for sure.

Great Kona Home!

  • 5 of 5
Kathy has done a marvelous job making her home both welcoming and comfortable. Everything you need to feel relaxed and right at home is provided for you. It didn't take us five minutes to settle in and start unwinding after a very long day. I would definitely consider renting this home again. Mahalo Kathy for doing a good job and being so very up front on the details of the rental agreement!!!

Perfect vacation rental

  • 5 of 5
Our stay at Kathy's vacation rental was perfect. We are three couples who vacation together annually and we agreed that we couldn't have found a better home to rent. The rooms are all spacious and clean and the décor is wonderful. We enjoyed the warm comfortable pool every day and night--couldn't have been better! The kitchen is fabulous, we cooked all of our meals there and 4 cooks could easily be accommodated at once! I was so inspired by the great kitchen and cookware that I baked a coconut cream pie! The linens and beach towel are all or high quality instead of the cheaper variety often found in rentals. We all appreciated the warm hospitality and aloha of our hostess and her representatives. Kathy had arranged for twin beds to be converted to king and obtained a couple more lounge chairs prior to our stay. The fresh tropical floral arrangements and chilled champagne on our arrival was most welcome. When we needed propane for the grill, Char was there within minutes. We will certainly be back! Mahalo, Kathy and Char!

Hawaiian Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5
What a wonderful family vacation! The home is as presented - clean, well set up and ready for a great vacation. There were ample beach towels, linens, books, games, condiments, spices, pool toys, and beach toys. In fact, it would behoove you to check on the condiments and spices (before shopping) to make sure you are not doubling up. Loved having the beach umbrella.

When you look at the first picture of the house, it looks like a 3 story. Thankfully it is not. The very top of the roof line is the elevated main living room. This home is well lit with several skylights and has a motion detector for those times when you arrive back at the house at dark. We had one experience when we came home of someone parking in the middle of the driveway, which forced both of our cars to park on the street. Never did find out who it was, but the car was gone in the morning. The owner, Kathy is wonderful to work with. I can't praise this house enough. It was truly home away from home.

Now to Home Away Rentals: Please add to your tips page the fact that people should plan on bringing their own bath soap for the tub/showers. This was my first time renting a house and had no clue. It is also important for new time rentors to know that replacing paper products (toilet paper, paper towels, paper napkins, etc.) is the responsibility of the rentor. Again, I had no clue.

Kathy, thank you for letting us enjoy your home.

The Perfect Family Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5
There's no exaggeration in this listing - the description of the property is dead-on, and it was absolutely perfect for the five of us. Each of the kids had his or her own bedroom (all downstairs so my wife and I enjoyed quiet evenings.) The location - in a very quiet residential neighborhood just minutes from town - was excellent. I had been worried about the heat, but between the fans, the pool and sleeping with A/C, we were quite comfortable. In fact, the place was so relaxing, we ended up staying home more than we thought we would. Dinners were out on the lanai every night, and there were enough little extras (condiments in the fridge, sand toys in the garage, Hawaii guide books, etc...) that we were spared those annoying little store runs that can suck up vacation time. The owner, Kathy, was very helpful with recommendations and we even appreciated that she accepted credit cards...) We regularly stay in VRBOs, but this one was exactly what we were looking for.
