About Candace Remington Spinali

Aloha! We are Michael and Candace Spinali from Tucson, Arizona. Michael is a native from San Diego and Candace grew up in Michigan. We enjoy our little slice of paradise at Banyan Tree and we are very active as owners of our vacation rentals. We have been married for 28 years and we have two sons. Our oldest son is Michael and he is enrolled in graduate school at SDSU in Electrical/Computer Engineering Program. Our youngest son Cole attends The Wildcat Academy of Engineering at The University of Arizona. (Thus the reason we live in Tucson and left San Diego) We feel very blessed to own our vacation home and to be able to share it with families from around the world!

Candace Remington Spinali purchased this condo in 2007

Why Candace Remington Spinali chose Kona Coast

After exploring the Hawaiian Islands we narrowed our search for a vacation home to the Big Island. It took us three years of looking to finally find our getaway.(And several months of construction once we did find it!) Our 'had to have list' was extensive. We knew what we wanted because we had vacationed in so many other vacation homes. We had to be on the ocean ( we had to be able to view sunsets, surfers, and whales from the unit!), the lanai had to be private(no fishbowl) we had to have two bedrooms ...the master had to have a king sized pillowtop bed and the guest room had to be able to have two full beds ( our oldest son is 6'4' and still growing!) We love our sanctuary! The sound of the waves, the view from almost every room, the 40' wall of glass to let the view in, the pool is fantastic, and the local people are beautiful! We love Kona and look forward to returning everytime we go...and then we hate to leave and we always plan our next visit before we even get on the plane to leave! It truly is paradise...it's the perfect place to unwind and escape from everyday busy life! It is a magical place and we love sharing our island home with families from all over the world!

What makes this condo unique

Our Kona Oceanfront vacation getaway is located close to everything, and so peaceful with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep every night. It is close to everything yet a world away surrounded by lush vegetation and the serenity of the waves rolling in to the beautiful Kona Coast shoreline.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple spent ten days at this condo. It was perfect. It was so comfortable for the 4 of us and there was space for privacy when we needed it. The property was just as described and had everything we needed for our time in Kona-Kailua. We cooked several meals here and it had everything we could possibly need. It was clean, the grounds were pristine and the pool was great. I've already recommended this place to friends and we will return here on our next trip to Kona. We watched spinner dolphins and sea turtles everyday from our lanai. Like Candace indicated for her, the lanai was our "happy place" as well. The property is close to town but heading south a mile or two is a fantastic local park where the snorkeling and coral formations are spectacular. We couldn't have enjoyed this place more or recommend it more highly. This is an amazing place! A+++

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your awesome review! It warms my heart to hear that you enjoyed the "Happy Place" (The Lanai) The views are breathtaking! It hooks you from the time you enter the condo and makes you never want to leave. But I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the snorkeling and the beaches located so close to the condo. Remember, the " happy place" is always ready to welcome you back! Mahalo nui loa, Candace

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say the ocean view from this condo is absolutely breathtaking beyond words. Everything about this unit is exactly as the owner described, and it is exactly what my husband and I anticipated...and more! The unit is beautifully decorated with comfortable, high end furnishings throughout. What you see in the photos really is what you get, and more. The kitchen is fully equiped and well adorned with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances...and the ocean view again from here is awesome! Our son is 14 and loved his own room which was also tastefully decorated and comfortable. He was happy with the Wi-Fi and never turned on the TV. The Master bed was comfortable and the gentle roar of the ocean was like a soothing lulliby every night we were there. In addition, the owners had a nice selection of water toys; boogie boards, snorkle gear, an Umbrella, beach chairs and mats, and a cooler that we used to pack lunch and drinks while we were traveling around the island. The unit is quiet and close to everything. We used the pool and the hot tub every day and the grounds were clean and well maintained including new grass and a very nice new rock wall that was recently replaced. Everything about this condo was perfect for us. We stayed for two weeks and it wasn't long enough..We are now planning another trip to The Big Island for three weeks and there is no need to look any further...this is definately the place to stay. Mahalo Candace!

Definitely recommended!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Banyan Tree many times in the past but this was the first time in this unit which has the floor to ceiling windows overlooking the ocean. The pictures do not do it justice and like many previous reviews mention the experience is spectacular. You can't get much closer to the waves than this unit. Very comfortable furnishings and everything you need. The owner, Candace, was very responsive to the couple of small items we needed help with and her recommendations for car rental/restaurants/things to explore provided great new experiences for us. Would definitely consider a return or recommend as an option to our friends.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time out of your day to submit your review! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed staying so close to the ocean and that VIEW!! It is spectacular and definitely a bucket list experience. It is hard to describe the majestic ocean and just how close it is to the condo. Breathtaking comes to mind! Mahalo for referring your friends...I hope to have you back too, you were wonderful guests! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Unbeatable View

  • 5 of 5

The view was exactly what we were hoping for. The condo was well furnished with everything we needed. Candace was wonderful to send us great info on our stay and we tried out many of her recommendations. Great location and felt very safe there. My husband and I use a sound machine at night, but didn't need one with the sound of the wave to send us right off to sleep. Our only downside was the lack of air conditioning. We knew before we booked it, but we're informed by many that it would be cool with the airflow from the outside and fans. We like it really cool especially at night and we were very warm the whole trip. We know this won't bother everyone, but if you like it cooler, just want you to be informed. Overall besides the air, the condo was a great rental.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time to write your review! I am so happy to hear that you enjoyed your stay. I have to wear a jacket and shut the windows when I am there during the winter months. ( It often can get to 66 degrees in the evenings ) We do have commercial ceiling fans in all major rooms as well as all new vinyl clad easy to open, easy to close windows. I know you told me that you like air conditioning even in the winter as you like to sleep in way cold conditions. ( I realize that it can be warmer for us women during certain times of our lives and I totally get that! ) It was wonderful getting to know you and I hope to have you return. Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Stunning views and a comfortable place to call home!

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent time on our vacation and this condo felt like our home away from home. The view is spectacular, the beds and couch were quite comfortable, and we enjoyed the lanai immensely. The place was clean and well-appointed. We had a couple of little things that needing attention, and Candace was quick to remedy the little problems (nothing major). I do have one suggestion for the owner: for those of us with older eyes, some of the lighting could be improved. We like to play cards and there is no light above the dining table, so we had to bring in a lamp from the bedroom and set it on the table. We felt the living room could also use a floor lamp, as we needed to use a flashlight to figure out the tv equipment. And the bathrooms could use some night lights. But these things did not detract from our overall experience which was very positive. My husband and son-in-law went swimming/snorkeling right outside the condo building, and it was challenging. They both got some sea urchin injuries and banged up their legs. I wouldn't recommend swimming out there unless you are extremely skilled! We thoroughly enjoyed watching the surfers right from the lanai. Amazing! And I definitely recommend this unit for an Hawaiian getaway!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time to write your awesome review! I am so happy you enjoyed your stay and were able to enjoy time with your family members. Thank you so much for the heads up on the lighting. I do have overhead recess lights but I think a lamp in the living area and the dining area is an excellent idea!!! ( An idea that I am going to act upon! ) The swimming out front of the condo during the winter months does have some huge waves but if you come back in the summer... much easier to snorkel. So, so thankful for your input. We hope to have you back! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

This is the perfect Kona oceanfront location close to downtown Kona, as well as the Keauhou shopping center, with all of the fantastic restaurants, shopping, and entertainment, but also several grocery stores, WalMart and even a Costco close by. You are directly oceanfront, with nothing between you and the blue Pacific ocean. Unobstructed, panoramic ocean views.
