About Gary West

Aloha,

Toni and I had spent many years vacationing in Maui. In 2001 we visited the Big Island and fell in love with it. If we had not just purchased a home in Lake Havasu City, Arizona we would have moved to Kona at that time.

During our stay in Lake Havasu we entered the tourism industry Buying a boat rental company, off road tour company and expanded our tour company to tours to Grand Canyon West where the new Sky walk is located.

In 2009 we sold out left the desert and headed for Kona. The next 3 years we moved three times and lived at 3 different elevations. We found the 700' elevation to be perfect no need for air conditioning just ceiling fans and lovely cool evenings. In October of 2012, we purchased our Kilohana home which had the potential for an Ohana (guest quarters). We now have a fully equipped 1169 Sq. Ft Ohana where we hope our guests will find the Ohana to be their haven while experiencing the beauty of our unique island.

With our vast tourism back round we hope to enhance your Island experience while visiting the Big Island.

We look forward to your visit to our Big Island Paradise and believe you will leave with the true Ohana (family) feeling.

Mahalo,

Gary & Toni

Kilohana retreat

  • 5 of 5

We spent two lazy weeks here. Space is modern, clean, well furnished and equipped. The quiet neighborhood, good beds, and high elevation make for good sleeping. Additionally, the doors and windows can be left open day and night, while at home or away. Very secure. It is located close to our favorite walking trail and only a few minutes from most other spots in the village. Landlord is on site and most helpful and friendly. Highly recommend this rental for 2 or 3 adults.

A relaxing retreat combined with adventurous outings!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week in this beautiful home and have rarely experienced such a comfortable rental setting with the same quality amenities (all the way from kitchen appliances to beach chairs to laundry soap) as we would purchase for ourselves at home. The location is so convenient that we could enjoy lazy mornings with plenty of time to lounge west side beaches and still be back to BBQ on the deck and enjoy yet another perfect sunset. OR, we could get going in the morning and easily reach any adventure on the island, including one day on the Hilo side exploring the volcano (highly recommend an open-door helicopter tour) and another day exploring/snorkeling the unique lava rock tidal pools in the Puna district (not to be missed as long as you have good tevas or water shoes). When we were too lazy to go out for dinner or to cook, take-out fish tacos from Killer Tacos were so good, we enjoyed them twice. My husband and I brought our 13-year old son, who was enthralled enough to never ask to turn the TV on all week. This quiet neighborhood home might not be the right fit for young children, but we sure liked getting away from the bustle of downtown at night - only a 5 minute drive. We hope to be back soon! Mahalo nui loa, Gary and Toni, our most gracious and friendly hosts.

Wonderful Kilohana Retreat!

  • 5 of 5

We were soooo pleased with our stay in the beautiful home for a week. Everything was beautiful and so convenient to our exploring of the west side of the big island. Gary and Toni were welcoming and considerate; as described by others, everything we needed was available. We spent a couple of days at the beach with beach chairs, umbrella, and cooler. We hiked and toured mountains and seascapes. We always came 'home' to views of the ocean and sunsets. We couldn't imagine staying anywhere better!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were fortunate enough to spend 10 days in this unit in March 2015. I can't say enough good things about the accommodations. The unit was spotless, and had every amenity you could possibly want or need. Beach chairs? Umbrella? Cooler? Boogie boards? This unit had it all and we took full advantage of it. The kitchen was well stocked with cook wear and other small appliances. We were disappointed to have not met Gary during our stay, however our host Toni was delightful, just a warm and kind person and we enjoyed our conversations with her. I loved the location of the home and the view was incredible. A morning coffee or an afternoon beer on this deck cannot be beat. If you are planning a vacation to Kailua-Kona, you absolutely must stay here.

Fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My boyfriend and I stayed in this fantastic rental for just over a week, with two friends staying with us for 5 of the days too.

Gary and Toni are super friendly and are able to give you any recommendations you might need while you are on the island, and they are the perfect mix of being around if you need them, but also respecting your privacy.

If you book this place, you will not regret it.

The location is perfect, 5 minutes from downtown Kona, but far enough from the hustle and bustle. 20 minutes from the airport, and good access to the West coast of the island.

It is spacious, comfortable, and well equipped. The kitchen had pretty much everything you could need, including a coffee grinder, which is so great when you are living in the KONA coffee region. The Lanai is a wonderful space, we spent many an evening grilling, drinking a beer and watching the sun set. Just perfect after a day out and about exploring the island.

The two beach chairs, and 4 beach towels, cooler and 4 masks, snorkels and fins, were very much appreciated.

The welcome basket, with coffee, nuts and candy are a really nice touch, not to mention the 2 welcome beers waiting for us in the fridge!!!

Much thanks to Gary and Toni, we would stay here again!!!

Marie & Scott, Jill & Mark.

O'Hana in Kona like coming home

  • 5 of 5

Can't say enough to convey how wonderful, comfortable and special our New Years visit to Kona became as a result of our choosing Gary & Toni's O' Hana in Kona. From the interior decore so tastefully done to your hospitality and all of the details of the space making each day so special...Thank You! You made us feel so welcome and provided all the amenity of a home away from home. We love cooking in the lovely kitchen, using the BBQ grill, your linens, all the beach gear. Our visit was perfect! See you again next year!
