About Kathy Doran


My name is Kathy Doran. I am the owner of this beautiful Hawaiian vacation home. I actually bought it as my retirement home, then my daughter had children and I could not live away from my grand-babies. So, lucky you, my house is available!

Kathy Doran purchased this house in 2007

Why Kathy Doran chose Kailua-Kona

This home has a beautiful ocean view. It is perfect for family reunions and large groups. 12 people can sleep in beds and we have futons and port-a-cribs for additional sleeping. I have a wonderful property manager. Her name is Kim Baumgartner. Please do not call her to book this unit. She will help any of our guests though and her number is provided at the house. She is a local person, so she has many connections on the island and can help with your needs, such as a chef to cook that special meal. I don't book my property until I have shown the prospective guest the house on my website, so that you know the layout and if the house can accommodate your group. The house is located in a quiet family neighborhood. I operate a legal unit and conscientiously pay my taxes on this rental. My tax ID number is 0two8-fourone1-nine04zero-zero1.

What makes this house unique

Some of our guests favorite things about this house are:

Enjoying the gentle way the warm tropical breezes blow through the palms.

Watching the way exotic Hawaiian birds and island geckos dart about.

Visiting the orchids, ginger and heliconia, misty in the morning as you stroll through the lush garden.

Swimming in the clear, aquamarine solar heated pool, day or night.

Having a spacious layout that provides many opportunities for entertaining, or just for solitude.

Best of all, watching for the green flash as sunset unfolds after a perfect idyllic tropical day in paradise.

Big Island Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

What can I say? We had the most wonderful time at this home, a memory that will last us a lifetime. We were looking for a quiet home to spend a week of relaxing, something in a quiet neighborhood but close enough to island activities so that we didn't spend hours in the car getting to all of those special places. The location of this home is perfect. Close to the town and all the shopping needed or wanted on the big island, restaurants and beaches. It is the perfect location for all of the before mentioned.

When we arrived at the home we were delighted to find the caretaker on premise to answer any and all questions we might have. She was a charming lady who took care to notice the make up of our group and point out the special things available to each of us.

The home owner has taken care to provide pack and plays for children, high chairs, strollers and even baby gates - all of which were important to us. In addition she has provided separate beach toys/accessories in the garage including beach shoes, towels, toys, beach chairs, beach umbrellas and snorkeling equipment for a number of people. We lacked for nothing!!! In addition she provided in the pool room toys for the pool as well including floaties, baby rings, noodles, etc.

The pool was heated by solar and so comfortable in temperature that we could swim any time of day or night and found the temp to be perfect for whatever time we chose to swim.

The kitchen(s) is (are) supplied with absolutely every appliance and utensil one could possible ask for. The abundant supply of dishes, pots and pans, glasses etc. were amazing.

The bedrooms (4) all have towels, both beach and bath, for all staying in the rooms. There are TV's in each of the bedrooms (although we didn't spend time watching much tv) with cable for each and internet access both inside and outside out side the house.

All in all it was one of our best vacations ever, not only because the weather was perfect, but primarily because of all the amenities this properties has to offer. I would recommend it to all.

Good location / Great house!

  • 5 of 5

Traveling to Kona with a party of 10, we needed plenty of space. This home afforded us enough space to be together and enough rooms to allow privacy too. The kids loved the pool and everyone enjoyed the ocean views. Having beach toys, snorkel gear, and plenty of towels was a great help. I would definitely recommend this wonderful home!

Amazingly Beautiful Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is amazingly beautiful and in the perfect location. Glorious private pool, full kitchen and spacious living areas. Bedrooms to accommodate large groups. Fully stocked with beach towels and accessories such as boogie boards, snorkel gear, coolers and beach mats so you don’t have to purchase. This was our second trip to this home and we would stay there again and again. We went in December and the home was even decorated for Christmas! The attention to detail is impeccable. We would highly recommend this home for you Hawaiian Vacation.

Fabulous Hawaiian vacation home

  • 5 of 5

Kathy's clean and beautiful spacious home was the perfect place for our family gathering. We had 7 adults and 4 young kids. There were enough beds for everyone. The house is well located and the back yard is very secluded with a nice swimming pool which was the the kids favorite place to be. We saw many beautiful sunsets from the back yard and upper deck.The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and condiments. She had beach towels, beach umbrellas and chairs to take to the beach. She had another set of towels and toys for the pool. It was nice not having to pack beach towels and having the beach equipment right there. The house is located close to downtown and beaches. Kathy was very helpful with information about places to go before we went over. I would highly recommend this house as a palace to call home in Hawaii and hope to return one day.
