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.

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.

Fantastic condo with wonderful views and amenities!

  • 5 of 5

James' and Hee's condo is a fantastic place to stay on the Big Island. The condo is clean, modern and well appointed. It really feels like a home away from home. They are very responsive and professional with their communication, which made a first time user, like me, feel very much at ease. They also provided several "insider" recommendations which proved to be fantastic! The condo is just a few minutes away from Kona and is situated directly across the street from a great beach for snorkeling (Kahaluu). The pool is warm and has lovely views overlooking Kahaluu beach park. The entire complex, including the pool area, is generally quiet and doesn't feel crowded. Overall, we were extremely happy that we decided to book this condo and had a fantastic time on our vacation!

Great location, great views, lots of conveniences and very comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and all it had to offer. It was so nice having a fully stocked kitchen, and a lanai that looked out on the ocean! We ate breakfast out on the Lanai every morning! It was the best start of the day. The kitchen is fully stocked as I mentioned above with more than just pots and pans, but also a toaster, electric grill, rice cooker, blender etc!

The beds were very comfortable and the bathrooms really clean and large! We opted for 2 nights without the A/C and then caved on the third night and asked for AC. With the tropical weather comes bugs and the screen doors were not enough to keep them out so keeping the doors open at night were not an option. However, the A/C kept us nice and cool and gave us the much needed rest.

Here is the biggest perk... right across the street is a Kahuluu park... one of the best snorkel beaches for beginners. It's shallow and well populated and has a life guard. There is also a section of this beach that offers surfing lessons and paddleboarding. Highly recommended before you venture out to some of the other snorkeling locations :)

Enjoy! ALoha!

Great stay!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in units in this complex several times in the past. Always love this complex - great views, perfect location across from Kahalu Beach Park (awesome snorkeling). Nice new units. This unit did not let us down! Beautifully decorated and very clean when we arrived. Britt met us there when we arrived - it was great having a contact on site even though we didn't need anything all week. The owner checked in within minutes of our arrival as well. I must say of the dozen or so rentals we have stayed in over the past few years, this was the best equipped with beach supplies! Good quality chairs, coolers, boogie boards, umbrellas and snorkeling gear. Most importantly, for a family full of desert rats, the a/c is awesome! We paid the extra for it and would do it again every time! Thank you for a wonderful stay!!
