About Stephanie Kubej

My husband Jerry and I honeymooned years ago in Hawaii and have been coming back ever since. We have three boys, college age and older, who love Hawaii as much as we do. I am a high school/technical college teacher and Jerry works as an IT consultant. I'm from Spokane and he grew up in a little town in Pennsylvania. We met in between in Denver years ago. Right now we live in the Seattle area but hope to one day call the Big Island home.

Stephanie Kubej purchased this condo in 2006

Why Stephanie Kubej chose Hawaii

This condo took our breath away the moment the realtor opened the front door. My face was giving my excitement away until I looked at our realtor who gave me 'that look' to cool it in front of the other realtor. We had looked at dozens of condos, and of all of them, this one had everything we wanted: a gorgeous view, facing the ocean to get the breezes, spaciousness, and decorator touches we just didn't find in other condos! We also loved the quiet atmosphere and the fact the building was concrete so we could put our own gas grill on the lanai. Then we met the wonderful property manager who lives downstairs and were sold. We want to one day pass this property down to our boys and are hoping that just maybe one of them will want to honeymoon there someday.

What makes this condo unique

The first time we stayed at our condo, we didn't want to leave, and we've felt the same way ever since. It is bright and sunny in the morning when tropical birds start chirping, and sipping that first cup of coffee on the lanai while watching the boats head south on the ocean is so relaxing. It's such a pleasure to cook on the lanai while watching the sunsets deepen their color, sometimes bright orange, sometimes magenta, sometimes a bit of both. At night, I like to sit in the living room and breathe in the perfumed air that makes its way in from the lush landscaping around the condo or sit on the lanai and listen to strains of luau music from the Sheraton down the way. This is heaven, a joy for the senses, and the perfect place to renew the spirit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

" Thanks for making our stay on the Big Island so wonderful! The breezes throughout the day really kept the condo cool. We just kept the ceiling fan on and locked the screen door. At night, we noticed the lovely smell of tropical flowers wafting through the living room. We feel at home every time we stay at your condo and had everything we needed and more. Kona coffee is the best, so it was a nice touch to have the electric coffee grinder! My husband and I will be coming back soon!"

Week on the Big Island

  • 4 of 5

Great spot - close enough to everything (3 minutes to beach and 10 minutes to Kona if driving), but far enough away to enjoy our vacation time together as a family. The condo was roomy, beautiful view of the golf course and ocean. Included everything we needed for the beach (like lots of beach towels, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel/fin/mask, cooler) which was great. It was exceptionally warm for 3 of the nights when we were there and there was no trade winds - so the condo did get very warm even with all the fans on. But overall a great place to stay. The Big Island did not disappoint, beautiful weather and snorkelling and lots to do (like Oceanrider Sea Horse Farm and National Volcano Park), but a car is a must!

Owner's Response: We chose this condo for it's view, wonderful location, and spaciousness. It's wonderful to hear from guests that they appreciate the same qualities! This is our vacation home as well, so we want this special place to be like your home away from home too. September is the warmest month on the Big Island, and often has the highest humidity. We have ceiling fans and bought some high powered LASKO fans especially for September. When we are at the condo, we access cross ventilation by keeping only the screen doors closed while we are home. Our family visits are usually planned for August, because we enjoy the warmer weather, but we especially enjoy the warmer ocean! It is like the temperature of bath water by summer's end. From October on, the temperature gets graduaally cooler, especially at night, so that in November, you will need the extra bedding!

Keauhou condo

  • 5 of 5

We had no problems with this condo. It was well furnished and very comfortable. It was on the 4th floor which we liked for the exercise and the cool breeze. It had a stand alone shower which was great.

I would suggest having a car. My recommendation is for anyone that can climb stairs.

Spectacular views - Quiet

  • 5 of 5

We spent 20 wonderful days at this unit. Its location is great being along a golf course fairway. Our evening sunsets were beautiful from the lanai along with the feeling of being in the country. The unit shows pride of ownership with the decor and the amenities it provides along with a very aloha onsite manager and staff. Having spent every year on our returns to the island and renting condos this unit was at the top. We really loved spending the time their and look forward to our return trip next year. Aloha

Breathtaking views!

  • 5 of 5

We have not actually stayed in this unit, but we visited the complex and noted the incredible views from this condo's lanai. We are in the hunt for a quieter place to stay the next time we visit Kona (far too much traffic noise in downtown), and this place is perfect! The golf course grounds are so beautiful, and the ocean views are incredible. Note that you might here a lawn mower once a week or so. We met the manager and he was very helpful and friendly. This complex is for those who wish to experience peace, quiet, and beauty while on their vacation, and it is conveniently close to shops and beaches. The owners are very responsive to emails, and they have a local property manager to help you with all your needs. We were unable to view the interior of the unit because there were people staying in it, but I would guess that the photos are representative of the inside.

Fabulous Holiday

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from a 3 week stay and this property is beyond expectations. Unit is very sound proof and private with spectacular views of the golf course and ocean. Property owners were very helpful with the booking process, answering all our questions and providing personal details of the area. Unit is very well equipped with everything anyone could possibly need for a relaxing and comfortable stay. We especially appreciated the grill on the lanai for our personal use. The grounds are emmaculate with shrubs, trees and flowers to enjoy. This unit has our highest recommendation to friends and family for future consideration. We would not hesitate to return.
