About Janice Patterson

Bruce and Janice, retired teachers, grew up in Salem, Oregon

Both graduated from Oregon State University in Education, Janice in Elementary and Bruce in Secondary, History and Science. Two married sons and seven wonderful grandchildren.

Janice Patterson purchased this condo in 1994

Why Janice Patterson chose Keauhou

We chose to buy our vacation rental, because our dream had always been to live in Hawaii. As the time neared, we decided that Kona was the place for us. We felt it had the most desirable weather, fishing, and most harmonious cultural blend. We felt the community desire was to work together for the best interest and welfare of all. Living on the ocean revives the soul and spirit.

What makes this condo unique

We initially were attracted by the beauty of our ocean, magnificent sunsets, lush tropical plants and landscaping. The cultural activities of Hawaii, being hula or ukulele to name just a few, are available for all. There are so many activities available that it is difficult to choose. The Hawaiian culture is gracious, generous, humble, and willing to share the beauty of their heritage.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Janice & Bruce: Just a quick note to tell you how much we enjoyed the use of your condo last week. We couldn't have asked for a better setting. It proved to be a great base for our excursions and also a pleasant place just to relax

when we were too pooped from running around. We took you up on your suggestion to use Neptune Charlie's and it was a terrific morning. We all went scuba diving and Mark & Angy took good care of us. They were very pleasant and personable. Just to look over and see some other very crowded tourist snorkel/dive boats assured us that going smaller was the right decision. Don't hesitate to use us for an email reference if needed.

We will give you rave reviews. Thanks again.

5 Star Plus ... Perfection!

  • 5 of 5

It is difficult to add much to all the deservedly wonderful reviews that this superb oceanfront property already has. The location is a dream come true, perched right on the rocks, the sight and sounds of the surf become part of your breathing. You will not be motivated to get out and sight see, as there is not much around that compares to sitting on the lanai of this extraordinary accommodation. The condo itself is immaculate and outfitted with anything and everything you might possibly need. The kitchen and bathrooms have the most beautiful granite I have ever seen. The lanai is spacious, private, and the only place you should dine. Why go to a restaurant when you can sip your wine in this setting?

We did not need the air conditioning, as the fans and wonderful ocean breezes were enough to keep us comfortable. Janice was a pleasure to work with. We booked very last minute and everything went smoothly. I truly hope that someday we can return ...

all the best of Kanaloa

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at Kanaloa a few times and this unit was just great. Not only a perfect location - sit and watch that mesmerizing ocean from the lanai-but it was probably the best equipped condo we've ever stayed in. We will return!

Incredible stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

We LOVED out stay at this unit in Kanaloa. The pictures do not do the unit justice, it is more beautiful!!! The kitchen is fully equipped beyond any unit we have ever stayed in all over the world, the beds comfortable and bathrooms well appointed. Lots of hot water, great washer and dryer. The view is outstanding, we loved dining in and enjoying the water, whales, dolphins and turtles. The only suggestion I would make would to hang light blocking curtains in the bedrooms for light sensitive sleepers, I was up at the crack of dawn each morning with the birds: ). There are ceiling fans that kept the unit cool, ice maker, filtered water, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, we lacked for nothing. Janice was responsive at every turn and we never had a reason to contact her while we were there. The unit is also VERY quiet, even with upstairs neighbors, we never heard a peep. I would highly recommend this amazing unit, we will be sure to stay here when we return next year!!!!! Thank you Janice and Bruce!!!!

Lovely condo and terrific owners

  • 5 of 5 must be said that the owner Janice was extremely responsive to all our requests and questions. She provided loads of information to help us plan a wonderful trip to Kona. The condo is located right at the ocean edge with an incomparable view of the sunsets. Open the slider door to the lanai and listen to the sounds of crashing waves. We love the sound of the ocean...but if you think crashing waves are "noisy"...then it's not the place for you.

The condo has the best stocked kitchen of any condo we have ever stayed at. We were want for even had a French Press in addition to the standard coffee maker. There were even many spices and loads of laundry detergent...things you hate to buy for a one week stay. There were several beach chairs, coolers and other beach toys/accouterments. The unit is well furnished and appointed.

The only small complaint is that the unit gets quite hot. We were there in late October and the temps were in the mid to high 80's. The way the unit is oriented, the tradewinds don't provide any cooling effect. Even sitting on the lanai, there were no breezes..which, when it is cooler would be great...but not when it's hot. And there was very little circulation of air inside the unit other than what is provided by the ceiling fans. Be aware that you can have A/C, but it is an extra $30 + tax per day.

All in all...great condo, great owners and would highly recommend.
