About Hee and James

We are a happy family of four--myself (Hee), husband James, son Ryan, and daughter Hana. I grew up in Oahu and have always loved the Hawaiian lifestyle. So I had mixed emotions upon graduating from the University of Hawaii to head to the mainland for work. But that's where I met my wonderful husband James. James is the breadwinner for our family but his true passion is photography and Hawaii has always been his favorite place to photograph. The beautiful beaches, tropical palm trees, breathtaking sunsets, and happy people in paradise always make for wonderful photos. Our two kids, Ryan and Hana will be raised with lots of Aloha the Hawaiian way.

Hee and James purchased this condo in 2014

Why Hee and James chose Kona Coast

We both love traveling and have taken many trips across the globe. But if you ask us where we would want to retire, Hawaii would be the first words out of us. When we stayed at this complex in 2013 while vacationing on Big Island, we instantly fell in love and knew we had to become owners one day. This modern unit (built 2007) is among the newest you'll find on Alii Drive and together with the gorgeous infinity pool, the open air lanai, and easy access to Kahaluu Beach make for an unforgettable Hawaiian vacation!

What makes this condo unique

There's so much benefits offered by this unit and location! The outdoor lanai offers splendid views of Kahuluu Beach and amazing sunsets every single day! It's also the perfect place to have coffee/breakfast as you get ready to snorkel Kona's best snorkeling spot. The location can't be beat--there is no complex with better access to Kahuluu Beach...all you have to do is walk across the street! The gorgeous infinity pool & jacuzzi is the perfect way to cool down and offers splendid reflection views of Kahaluu Beach Park's coconut trees. As one of the newest buildings on Alii drive, this unit is located just far enough from downtown Kona to avoid the noise and traffic, yet has easy access to shopping centers, farmers' market, and local eateries.

We are super excited to share our home with you and whether you are coming to Hawaii for the first time or a frequent visitor, we hope you make yourself at home and enjoy your stay.

Hee and James unit is so comfortable from the beds, towels and couch. The kitchen is well equipped. All the details have been thought of and attended too. We've really enjoyed the snorkeling just across the street. We've had a fabluous time.

Great space, great location!

  • 4 of 5

Absolutely loved the view from the lanai, spent every morning and evening enjoying the view and breezes. Very comfortable beds and well appointed kitchen. Loved the pool and the view from the infinity edge, great bbq, used it for several dinners. Very nice being directly opposite the snorkelling beach and 2 minutes drive from a wonderful sandy beach with crystal clear water and a friendly turtle!

Amazing property in an amazing location.

  • 5 of 5

We have just returned from a 2 week trip here as my husband competed in the Ironman event. We took our 2 children aged 9 and 6. From the moment we booked the accommodation Hee and James were so helpful always replying promptly.

The apartment is literally a home from home everything you need is in there from cooking utensils to beach gear and beach towels. The beds are also super comfy (this was a huge bonus after travelling 27 hours from the UK)

We hired a car from a recommendation from Hee and James which was a huge benefit and again was really well organised.

Kona is a beautiful place and we would recommend a trip to Hapuna Beach, captain cooks cove for snorkelling and the manta ray trip. The beach opposite is great for spotting the turtles and the ice shaves from the van were a huge hit.

All in all a fantastic place to stay. I already miss sitting on the balcony watching the sunset!

Condo was more than we expected, clean and fully stocked with everything you could possibly need.

1 min walk to the beach, fantastic view and lovely pool. Easy to find and close to everything. Restaurants are only 5 miles away or just up the street you can find a handful. You really don't need to bring anything. Fridge even had food in it. Big beach bag, 2 coolers, ice packs and much more.

Awesome condo in an awesome location!

  • 5 of 5

We were very excited to book our first trip to Hawai'i and found this listing on Trip Advisor, a service we have never used before. From the moment we contacted Hee and James, they responded quickly and were very helpful and friendly throughout our contact with them.

We spent a week in July at their beautiful 2 bedroom penthouse and were impressed by the cleanliness and how well it was maintained. The location was so convenient as it was close to the airport, shopping, and the incredible snorkeling beach literally across the street.

They had so many amenities, from beach gear, to appliances, that were included. As well, there was on-site assistance if necessary and Hee and James made very helpful recommendations of activities on the island. Our family of 4 was comfortable and thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Kona.

We will definitely be back and would recommend this to our friends and family.

Perfect location!

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed at this property for 4 days with our grade school aged daughter. We should have stayed longer. The owners were in touch throughout the process and have a great onsite person to help when you come stay. No need to worry about this aspect of things.

This is a great alternative to a hotel where you will have to park your car a mile away. We were able to park our car right outside the building and easily take luggage/beach items/groceries back and forth with the elevator. We walked half a block to the world class snorkel beach across the street but also set out to locations up and down the coast. This is truly a halfway point to most things you want to see and do. We ate all our meals on the lovely deck and utilized all kinds of things in the well stocked kitchen. The beds and bedrooms are both sophisticated and comfortable. The showers are amazing! The condo is full of beach items. There is a lovely pool and jacuzzi that we always had to ourselves. The view is out over the ocean. It is quiet, beautiful and easy.

We recommend heading down to the bay right at the edge of The Sheraton nearby. There is excellent paddle boarding, more snorkeling and both fishing and snorkel boat tours right there(across from the drive that turns into the hotel). No need to always go into the more crowded downtown Kona area for these things. Our favorite nice meal out was at Ray's on the Bay at the Sheraton! Truly magical outdoor seating at sunset.

Our kid was enchanted, we were totally relaxed, --it was wonderful. We will come back!

***PS-don't forget to add the volcano to your trip. There is no way a brochure or travel book can prepare you to see into a lake of lava on a pitch black night with a sky full of stars above you. I guarantee you want to experience that:)! Rent the condo for the whole week for ease and take a day and a night to head over to the national park. It's a whole different place over there. Like being in the Jurrasic Park movie. Really cool.
