About kerry mcclelland

Our story began 45 years ago in California- the next 45 will be in Hawaii!! We purchased a fixer upper home 5 years ago in North Kohala and are still working on the renovation-let's just say we have embraced the much slower pace of the Big Island! Maybe when we retire(again!) it will be in Hali'i Kai 15B-until then, make yourselves at home. We are on island, so please don't hesitate to let us know if we can be of any assistance.

Kerry and Sue

kerry mcclelland purchased this townhome in 2006

Why kerry mcclelland chose Kohala Coast

We had taken many vacations to Hawaii and the dry side of the Big Island became the obvious choice for us. Sue has discovered the consistent warmth has reduced her arthritis pain -unlike the extreme temperature changes in California. Perhaps the amazing sunsets, stargazing and mai tais may have also influenced our decision!

What makes this townhome unique

Aloha is a way of life in Hawaii and we truly believe each guest will experience the beautiful spirit of the island. It all begins with feeling the ocean spray and listening to the crashing waves from your private lanai! We hope your choice of Hali'i Kai 15B will allow you to maximize your precious vacation time on this magical island. a hui hou

Guestbook comments from the owner

Dear Jeff,

Pictures cannot prepare one for the reaction we got when we opened the

front door. Your place has got to be the nicest place on the whole island

-- just amazing! We already have memories of a lifetime just sitting on the

lanai staring at the ocean, spending time with each other and drinking

coffee (and beer). I meant to drop you a quick note earlier, but we've

been so busy having the time of our lives.

Having been to Kauai so many times, I wasn't sure what to make of all the

lava on the way up! But we went to Hapuna, visited Kailua Kona and Hilo,

and are really loving this island.

Whenever we come back "home" to 15B, it never fails to amaze me to walk

through those doors and see that view. My expectations were high to begin

with, but it's no exaggeration to say we're blown away. Mahalo, Mahalo!

Fantastic home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay at Halii Kai 15B! The VRBO description (and reviews) looked great and were not misleading. In fact, the view from the lanai is nicer than the picture shown and the sunsets are absolutely gorgeous. The owners have really thought of everything a guest could need (when they said, "just bring your toothbrush" they weren't kidding). We enjoyed the beach towels, chairs, snorkel gear and coolers. I even borrowed a book from their library ... and now I have to buy "The Help" so I can finish it :-) The kitchen has top-notch appliances and everything you need. The beds are comfortable and they provided a variety of pillows (a big deal for me since I don't like thick pillows). We stayed at the Hyatt at Kauai before our visit to Halii Kai 15B and were not disappointed. We enjoyed the extra room (and bathroom) and the peace and quiet of the complex. Our sons (11 and 14) really enjoyed it too. It was our first time on the Big Island and hopefully not our last! It's very different that Kauai, Maui and Oahu ... the scenery is striking and the Volcanoes National Park is a must-see.

Many thanks to Kerry, Sue and Jeff for making us feel at home! We found ourselves referring to your home as our home during our trip. I think that says a lot. MAHALO!!

Amazing views, every detail provided

  • 5 of 5

Stunning view of the ocean over lava rock inside and out, and wonderful lanai! The hosts thought of every detail -- from state of the art appliances to snorkel and beach equipment galore. Hosts were very accommodating and responsive. The unit is in a resort-style condo complex next to a golf course. The pool/bar area is beautifully landscaped, but does get very crowded -- perfect for families with kids, but a little raucous for our mellow older group (other than super early or late). Luckily it's located 15 minutes from the Mauna Kea resort, which became our favorite beach. The pool area has an open air workout room with a ridiculously breathtaking view (best gym ever, for real). We're not really resort people usually, but this place worked for all of us, as the lanai allowed us plenty of private space with a great view and we spent most of the rest of our time off-site.

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our unit was great! It was comfortable, clean and well appointed. We were pleasantly surprised that the unit had lots of little extras we weren't expecting like laundry detergent, seasonings & other kitchen supplies that made cooking convenient. We used the provided beach supplies like chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear & coolers daily! & Kerry & Sue were very responsive and welcoming. Thank you for a wonderful and memorable stay!

Nice well equipped condo with beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

Condo is in a well-developed complex. Close to pool restaurant and workout room. Condo is well-equipped and has everything you need for the beach. Couple things were difficult but fixable. It took us a while to figure out how to work the Keurig machine and also to work the oven. Overall, we had a great time great location and easy access to many beautiful beaches.

Owner's Response: Rebeccah, I'm sorry to hear you struggled with our Stove and our one button Keurig coffee maker. I wish you would have called me so I could have told you where to stick the K-cup ! I'm not sure if you noticed but we have three coffee Machines in the home, a Drip Mr. Coffee, a French coffee press, and the Keurig. I hope the Manta Night Dive suggestions and the Beach maps I sent you during your trip were helpful. Best Regards, Jeff
