About Gordon Hasenbein

My wife and I live near the beach in San Clemente CA. Hard to beat that location, but we have with this condo.

Gordon Hasenbein purchased this condo in 2007

Why Gordon Hasenbein chose Kohala Coast

This complex and condo are the perfect combination of Value and luxury. We knew we loved the property, but more than that, we knew all of our guests would be very happy with how the unit is furnished and the uniqueness of the Ocean Club. It can't be beat.

What makes this condo unique

My Wife and I have stayed in many VRBO condo's in the past. We thought most of them had at least a few clever ideas. We took everything we learned and made sure our condo had it. It is not only a rental unit for us, but more importantly, it is our first and only 'second home'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I cut and pasted this comment from the HomeAway review:

Our stay at Hali'i Kai was everything we expected and more! The two bedroom condo was very comfortable and tastefully decorated in tropical island motif. The owner's posted description and photos were very accurate, but could never capture all the details, comfort and extra amenities without personally staying in the condo. We loved the view from the lanai and the awesome sunsets over the ocean. We also enjoyed the beautiful landscape design and manicured Beach Club Pool and Spa area with the amenities of a large gas BBQ, the convenience of the Club Bar and Grill with excellent service plus the magnificent view of the ocean. The condo was well equipped from the items in each bathroom and kitchen to the games, movies and books that were provided. Just like being at home! If we ever return to the Big Island we would without a doubt stay at the Hali'i Kai in this condo. A first class experience!

Home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a terrific find on a number of levels. First, for those of you who may be hesitant to rent direct from the owner, those fears can be put to rest here. We vacationed for the month of February at this condo and Gord provided us exceptional customer service. He was easily accessible and a couple of requests we had were addressed the very same day. From emailing us a link to up to date weather forecasts during our stay to returning our deposit within the first week we got back, his thoughtfulness and professionalism were appreciated. The condo and complex was excellent quality, the view off the lani beautiful and the people working at the complex terrific.

Thanks Gord and Beth for contributing to what was a very special vacation for us. We shall return.

Amazing condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time using VRBO so naturally I was a bit nervous, but dealing with Gordon was an easy and pleasant experience. The condo was beautiful and the fruit, nuts and coffee put out for us were a very nice added touch! Not to mention there is a closet full of snorkel gear and beach toys, towels, and lots of other stuff. Gordon is very easy to work with and accessible throughout your stay. The process of booking the condo was very easy and Gordon even provided info on things in the area. All in all this was a very pleasurable experience and Hali'i Kai is an amazing place to stay, safe to say we will be back!

Highly Recommend this Condo!

  • 5 of 5

We've stayed at this condo on two separate occasions and both stays were excellent. Hali'i Kai is a first-class meticulously-maintained resort with newer, high quality condos, lovely views and a spectacular pool area. For similar quality ocean view condos in nearby resorts, you'll pay a lot more. Some parts of Waikoloa Beach Resort can be busy. However, once you enter the gated Hali’i Kai – you’re unaware of being in a large resort. It’s very quiet and isolated from any noise. There are advantages to being in a busy resort though… there are ample shopping and restaurants choices nearby.

The condo itself is very well-kept and is stocked with everything you'll need. The beds and furniture are of good quality and are in very good condition. The view from the lanai is beautiful and the sunsets are amazing... we spent hours there.

As much as we love beach time in Hawaii, we spend less time at beaches while staying at Hali'i Kai. The Ocean Club is so good, it's tempting to spend most of your days there instead. The oceanfront pool area is really beautiful. The pool itself is heated and the food and beverages there are very good, if a little pricey (but worth it for the convenience).

I cannot recommend this resort and this condo highly enough. The only one (small) thing I would change would be to have secure wifi at the condo. However, the unsecured wifi there is by far better than none. This is a minor inconvenience in the grand scheme of things.

Lastly, the owner of this condo was an absolute pleasure to deal with. He was very helpful and responsive. Thank you Gordon for making our stays so easy and pleasant.

Owner's Response: I originally left passwords off of our Wi-Fi to avoid issues around difficulty getting on line. A few guests have expressed concerns over lack of WI-FI security, so plan to add password and encryption on our next visit (soon). Thanks for your kind words!

Pure Perfection !!

  • 5 of 5

Mahalo Gordon! We had a wonderful holiday on the Big Island and your beautiful condo was the icing on the cake! Hali’i Kai is an amazing resort and we are so thrilled we found your condo. It is so lovely inside and has everything one could ever need; however, we spent most of our time on the lanai just relaxing and enjoying the fabulous view! It was perfect – which is why we booked again for next year!!! Aloha

Everything and more

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Hali'i Kai and in particular Gordon's condo. The condo is very comfortable and beautifully staged with art and decor that tie in to the spirit of the Big Island. The kitchen has everything you could need in terms of equipment or utensils. Gordon has lots of beach playthings, chairs etc. snorkel masks I can't think of anything else you would need . I had full confidence dealing with Gordon especially in how payments are transferred and deposits returned. I did talk to Gordon on the phone which really increases confidence in the whole rental process. The complex is very quiet and very well maintained.WE loved the pool/bar complex.We developed a habit of participating in HappyHour and watching the whales and sunsets. I'm sure there are many places to walk within the Waikola complex,we liked walking to the Hilton and beyond. I can't wait to go back and I hope Gordon's condo is available when we do

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Gordon's condo for one week in January. This condo is beautifully furnished and equipped with everything one could possibly need. The grounds are meticulously cared for, the view is beautiful and the facilities including the pool, hot tub and tennis court are amazing! We would highly recommend this condo and would certainly rent it again. The information provided prior to our arrival was very helpful and it was a pleasure dealing with Gordon.
