About Judy Prather

Property is co-owned by two retired teachers, a wife retired from law enforcement and another in bookkeeping. We love to please and welcome back repeat vacationers.

Judy Prather purchased this condo in 1999

Why Judy Prather chose Kona Coast

We had visited the other islands for a few years and loved them all. Once we visited the Big Island, we loved the diversity of the island. The Big Island is true 'OLD HAWAII'.

What makes this condo unique

We strive to constantly update our condo to make your stay pleasant. Cleanliness is very important to us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to let you know that we enjoyed the two weeks in your Kona condo very much. The weather was ideal with a few days overcast but no rain. The pulldown screen on the lanai came in handy. Your kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies. We will certainly look forward to returning in the future.

Thank you,
Nov 2012

Walk to the sea on the stone walk way along the pool to watch the sunset over Kailua pier at the other side of the Bay. Free secure wireless internet and your personal safe recently installed.

Lovely little quiet condo.

  • 4 of 5

We like the convenient location, not too close to town but still within a nice evening walk. Great location for snorkelling right off the rocks out front in either direction of the condo complex. We even swam with dolphins out there! Lovely furnishings, very clean and well stocked with all the kitchen tools we needed. Very nice to have a cooler, beech chairs and umbrella. A very private and quiet complex with well kept grounds. No gliches, just fun and relaxation. We loved it!

We Would Stay Again

  • 5 of 5

The condo is clean & the location is convenient. We loved enjoying the sunset from the lanai right when we first arrived, we saw it through the buildings across the parking lot. I especially liked being able to use the cooler & beach chairs; we had them in the car for the impromptu picnic, side-of-the-road fruit stand, or super market stop. Being able to have at least one meal a day at "home" prevented us from having to always eat out; save a little $ & eat healthier. Thank you Judy for being so accessible when we had questions before the trip & upon our arrival (about the WiFi). It was great to know we could reach you by calling, texting, & e-mailing you :)

Fantastic condo with a strong feeling of 'home'.

  • 5 of 5

We arrived in the condo in the evening with the rain pouring down. We found that the previous people had left a few cans of soda - fantastic that this is possible! that saved our lifes ;)

The condo was just perfect for us as a couple to use it as a base for big-island exploring. The area is clean and quiet. The pool is a little walk away but have an amazing view of the sunset. Also the city of Kona is within walkable distance (for newlyweds that like to walk hand in hand that is)

All in all a perfect homely spot on the other side of the globe - Communication with the owner was quick and pleasant. As long-distance travelers the WiFi access was a must - stable and fast connection. I would recommend this place to anybody looking for a place to stay in Kailua-Kona.

Relaxing place in Kona

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I stayed at the condo in Kona Shores for 4 nights in April 2016. We enjoyed using the resort amenities (pool, grill) and the condo had a great bed. The partial view of the ocean from the lanai was enough to make us feel like we were really on vacation. The community is a bit farther from town than we expected, so we used taxis more than we walked. Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill is very close and worth a visit for dinner!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for staying! It is always the renters choice to rent a car or not, but on the Big Island it is pretty mandatory unless you just want to stay around the condo. The walk to town is 1 mile...straight down Alii" drive. We as owners, and very much seniors love to walk there everyday. So glad you loved Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill! It is very delish! It is .07 miles, but is a bit uphill. Mahalo and thanks for your review. Judy
