Ginny is now a retired Nurse, having practiced in several specialties and taught Nursing at the College level for many years; 20 yrs at San Jose State Univ. (Professor) and Sonoma State Univ. She loves out-doors, back-packing, swimming, and since our Honeymoon (photo) snorkeling. Glen is a retired business executive of Pharmaceutical and more recently Biotechnology companies. He has a pharmacy degree and an MBA. Growing up he participated in several sports and later focused on water-skiing, snorkeling, and back-packing. Both of us were born in California--she in Oakland, he in Santa Cruz. We both attended college at UC Berkeley and UCSF. Glen got his MBA at Harvard. Our most favorite vacations are to Ginny's family cabin in Yosemite and our Hawaii properties. We live in a house that we completed building in 2000 on Glen's family mountain-top property in Soquel (Santa Cruz), CA
Glen purchased this Condo in 1994
Why Glen chose Kailua-Kona
Over the years Glen traveled to Hawaii many times, mainly Oahu, Maui, and Kauai. Ginny and Glen went to several Hawaii islands on their Honeymoon in 1985. (Picture is at Kona Village) We have owned a time-share in Waikiki, a lovely condo at Poipu Beach in Kauai, and several vacation and long-term condos on the Big Island. Our favorite place to visit became Hawaii for the sports (e.g. snorkeling), sites all over the island, variety of scenery, birds, and the fact that this island is not yet ruined by Tourism and population. We now own properties only in KONA.
What makes this Condo unique
Since 1985 we had been coming to Kona Shores annually. In 1994 we decided to buy in this complex. We searched only the North wing as it was the most private area and had good garden views from the decks with lots of landscaping (and a parking lot) between the unit and the buildings of the property north of us--quite private and quiet! Being almost furthest West also separated us from the noise of busy Alii Dr. Also, we liked the floor plan--much better than the "1 BR" units at Kona Shores (where you enter into the bedroom, and the kitchen and living room are one and the same). The Studios have an entry Hall, with a separate room kitchen on the right and a sizable bathroom on the left. The living area has the bed area offset so you don't notice it when you enter from the front door--and get to look through the dining area to the glass slider door of the deck and out to the tops of Golden-fruited Palms.
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.

Great snorkeling at many spots within 5 miles; others within 20 miles--best in HI. Good local beaches and one world class beach within 25 miles. Small town atmosphere with reasonable restaurants and shops. Picturesque walk along main drive, many areas open to ocean. Unspoiled!
