About Kathy Doran

Aloha!

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 Kona Coast

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 Sandra Novotasky-Donahue. 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 Wthree0onefive4threetwo6-zerotwo.

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.

Outstanding Property

  • 5 of 5

This property was just what our large group needed. The kitchen was well equipped and fully stocked with things we needed instead of us running to the store for every little thing. Kathy was so easy to work with and made sure everything was set up prior to our arrival to the way we wanted it to accommodate our big group. Everyone had a great time relaxing in the evening along the pool or on one of the many lanai's after an all day function for 2 days. I would highly recommend this property to our family and friends. You won't regret it. Mahalo Kathy!!!

Fantastic vacation rental for family fun

  • 5 of 5

This property is well maintained and the property manager and pool person were both helpful and friendly and made us aware of the amenities in a timely manner. The youngest member of our family is 8 and was in the pool before breakfast, which is saying quite a bit. The rest of the family spent considerable time in the pool area; however not quite that early. The sunset views from the upper deck are sensational and the neighborhood is quiet and very relaxing. The house has ample towels for the beach as well as the pool and bathrooms and the kitchen. I have rented several condos and this house is by far the best equipped of any I have stayed in. We all would have liked to continue our stay but reality called us

back. I look forward to staying at this house again, hopefully soon, and would highly recommend it to anyone.

35th Anniversary

  • 5 of 5

The house is beautiful and its location worked out great for our 35th wedding anniversary celebration. The house has a nice view of the ocean from the upper lani. We had 2 couples, two singles and a child. The 4 bedrooms and variety of beds allowed us each to have our own bedroom would accommodate more people on the sofa sleepers. The property was close enough to drive into Kailua for supper, shopping and the beach. The pool was too warm for us but it was nice to have at the property so we could use whenever we wanted. It was especially nice to have the little extras, beach/pool towels, swimming and beach toys. This house is just as homeowner described.

Perfect environment for relaxing!

  • 5 of 5

This home was the perfect place for an extended family gathering. Plenty of room, gorgeous view, prime location. We spent almost all our evenings on the lanai watching gorgeous sunsets with bird serenades. All generations were happy with their experience. Would definitely return to this same house in the future.

Had everything we needed and more !

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed this beautiful home with nice view of the ocean and pool !

It was great for our extended family vacation, even with 3 young kids.

It was in a nice neighborhood, and short drive to shopping and beaches.

It was great to have the gated protection with the little ones and the pool.

It was also great to have pool and beach towels,chairs, umbrella, cooler, and sand toys for the kids !

The kitchen had everything you could have needed. I would have loved to stay longer, and would come here again for a family vacation gathering.

It was very clean and well maintained. We had great customer service.
