My husband and I have been to the Hawaiian Islands, roughly 18 times. We decided to buy our retirement condo on the Big Island, because of its diversity. No worries about Rock fever here. If we want, we can jump in the truck and take a two hour drive to Hilo, do the ZIP LINE, spend the night, if we choose, or go to the volcanoes, or play in the snow in the winter. Among our travels, we have found the beaches and snorkeling offer more variety here, than the other islands. We honed in on Kona, because we like the sunshine. While we do get our tropical rains, it is mostly sunny, and it isn't as windy as Waikoloa, or as the locals call it, Wai-ka-blow-ya! The ALOHA SPIRIT is very much alive here. We already feel part of the town. I, Marianne, am a retired Respiratory Therapist. Randy, my husband, works for NASA, and is one year from retirement. We plan on living here for half the time and California, where our families are, the other half.
My sister and husband bought at ALII LANIA. We came to visit and fell in love with the area. KONA SEA RIDGE, is well known in the area for it's intimacy and well kept grounds.The complex is about ten years old, so it offers some upgrades that we enjoy, like 8' doors, granite counter tops, eat in kitchen area, tiled bathroom and shower, porcelain tub and two sinks in the master bath. Besides being a gated community, which we really enjoy, mostly home owners live here. That is why we can only have one tenant a month, whether it is for 10 days or the whole month. This is not a frat house area. While we can not BBQ on our Lanai (state law), there are three BBQ at the pool side, complete with a sink area. We enjoy our morning walks and coming back to the pool area, to finish our workout in the exercise room. The close proximity to town lets us walk to breakfast or dinner.
There is a shuttle that runs up and down Alii Dr. A schedule is on our cork board. Also a bus that goes to Hilo.
We have a lady that will shop for you. She has a Costco card. She charges per hr; min one hour. She will also do weekly cleans.
