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.

Nice, clean , well kept unit.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. We were pleased to find a handicapped accessible unit as they are hard to come by. Your site manager is friendly and helpful. The roll in shower has a bath bench. The manager got us a toilet extender. A tall toilet would be a nice addition to your unit. We loved the lanai and the view. We spent much time out there. The pool area is lovely. The beach is handy. One of us. exercised on the beach in the AM. We never needed the air conditioning, the fans and windows were adequate. The local shuttle bus would be adequate if you didn't want to rent a car. We thank Hee and James and hope to visit again sometime.

Fabulous location!

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was nice and clean and exactly as shown in the photos. The location cannot be beat. When we wanted to go and enjoy the beach and snorkel it was just steps away. The elevator was nice when we were with our suitcases and groceries. The grocery store is a few minutes drive away and the stores and restaurants are only a 10/15 minute drive. The balcony was always shady and was amazing for our meals and relaxing. The ceiling fan on the balcony was a great way to have an ocean breeze anytime we wanted. The view was great and the neighbourhood is relatively quiet. The pool and barbecue were great, but we spent almost all of our time at the beach. Amazing snorkelling. We saw turtles, an octopus, lobster, and a huge variety of reef fish. The beach park has showers, bathrooms, snorkelling rentals, and there is a food truck there everyday with ice-cream, snacks, burgers and so-on. The kids loved the beach, the pool, and the condo. We were all sad to leave when our vacation was over. When we return to Kona we will definitely choose to stay there again.

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!

Amazing

  • 5 of 5

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.
