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 Keauhou

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.

Awesome location with Everything you Need

  • 5 of 5

The villas are beautiful and well equipped. We have been to the Big Island and stayed in time share villas a couple times and these were far superior. Being across the street from what some consider the best snorkelling location on the big island allows a couple of relaxing days as well ... with a wonderful activity. The pool area is ideal and the view from the pool and hot tub cannot be matched. A great way to end the day with a sunset.

All the amenities like the washer and drier, dishwasher, stove ... couple of methods of coffee making, et cetera ... all worked well.

The biggest surprise was the equipment supplied in the rooms including chairs, umbrellas, snorkelling equipment, and boogie boards. This allowed a couple of pack up and go days to Hapuna Beach and 2-Step.

Then there are the excursions to Mauna Kea, Kilauea, 2-Step ... and the Octopus Farm! Wonderful 10 Days!

Wonderful accommodations,Beautiful setting and location!

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Hee and James. Thank you so much for your promptness in the refund. More importantly, thank you for your hospitality and wonderful accommodations that contributed to our sibling reunion in Beautiful Hawaii. The unit Has everything you need from cooking to snorkelin to relaxing. Special thanks to wonderful Britt who was very accommodating, pleasant and helpful in helping us settle in to the unit. Your location was just steps away from the best snorkeling we have ever experienced(sea turtles,myriad variety of tropical fish,etc.) and essentially easy access to Kona and great restaurants and local places of great food, views, ambience-as well as easy drivability to the entire island. We would definitely recommend your place to friends and if we ever get an opportunity to come back to Hawaii we would choose your place.

Mahalo and Peace, Bob and Beth Kantner

Kahalu'u Beach Villas are right across the street from Kahalu'u Beach Park. Great snorkel location.

  • 4 of 5

Nice 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo on 3rd floor with elevator. Across from Kahalu'u Beach Park, shallow area for wading in ocean and snorkeling. Local rooster kept us aware of his existence. Decent size kitchen and water items for guest use.

Close to Keauhou shopping center with grocery store & restaurants. Would stay in this condo again.

Gorgeous Views

  • 5 of 5

The views from this condo were exceptional. The condo was very well located. You could get anywhere very quickly. The condo is beautifully decorated and well equipped. We were busy touring so we didn't spend any time at the pool or use any of the very many beach toys that were left for use in the condo. We would definitely stay here again.

Fantastic Location and Accomodation

  • 5 of 5

The condo was very clean, well supplied and comfortable (especially the beds and patio chairs). We enjoyed spending the evenings on the patio with the ocean breezes and sipping pina coladas. Having the snorkeling beach across the street was amazing. My husband snorkeled almost every day and saw a wide variety of colorful fish and very curious turtles. We enjoyed the pool and hot tub. It was great having the snorkeling gear, beach chairs, beach towels, and ice chest available. Having the trolley at the end of street made it very convenient getting to "downtown" Kona and not having to worry about parking.

Hee and James were wonderful hosts. We plan on renting their condo the next time we visit Hawaii.
