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.

Fantastic location - lovely home

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home next to the best snorkeling on the island. We spent a week in this lovely place during our kids' spring break. We went to the pool once, but when you can swim with turtles in cove across the street, the pool was completely abandoned :). The house is also beautifully and wonderfully equipped with a bunch of kitchen appliances and beach supplies. Unlike some others, we did use the AC, but only turned it on for an hour or so during the hottest part of the day. In fact, there was only one issue with the place - it's on the 3rd floor. it was a bit difficult to haul large pieces of luggage and groceries up 3 flights of stairs, but that's the price for the beautiful sunset view over the ocean from the lanai.

Owner's Response: Aloha Scott, glad you and the family had a great time. We do in fact have an elevator that's very close to our unit. Sorry we didn't point htis out ahead of time. We'll make it a point to better highlight the elevator for our future guests.

A slice of paradise on the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We truly enjoyed our stay in this well-maintained condo that is conveniently located just across the street from one of the best snorkel beaches in the Hawaiian islands. We very much appreciated the timely and thorough communication with the owners (James and Hee). They are on top of it! The property manager (Britt) was welcoming and exceptionally helpful (she even found a coupon for a local establishment to give to us). The condo itself is well-appointed and beautifully decorated, and included useful amenities such as snorkeling equipment for us to borrow. One minor thing for the building owner to consider is putting up a patio umbrella by the pool for those who want to be outside and enjoy the view of the ocean across the street while being protected from the sun. Overall, our experience was excellent. Mahalo!

Something for everyone

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for one week in January. We were very impressed with the location. It is just across the road from Kahaluu Bay ranked as one of the best snorkel locations in the area. The colorful variety of sea life in the underwater world being so close was a real advantage. We could check the surf level from our lanai and see if it would be a good time to head to the water. We usually began our days on the lanai and ended our day there as well. James and Hee were so thoughtful with including so many amenities to make our stay very comfortable. It felt private, yet close to everything we needed. The elevator was extremely handy when bringing in groceries or just coming and going. The surf is too high? No problem. Enjoy the privacy of the pool with view of the bay. There is a grill near the pool and Kualoa Ranch was just down the road with reasonably priced items for grilling. Thank you to James and Hee for our home away from home. We also appreciated the prompt return of our security deposit.

Perfect place for a first time visit.

  • 5 of 5

Our visit couldn't have been better. The location and accommodations were perfect. The only downside was the closing of the beach just across the street which had happened a few days before we arrived. Other than that, we had five full days of sightseeing, eating and basically relaxing. The accommodations had everything we needed and a wonderful view from the lanai. We did not use the air conditioner but relied on the ceiling fans to keep us comfortable. Overall the fans worked quite well.

I would recommend this place to anyone.

Everything we expected and MORE!

  • 5 of 5

What a great first time vacation to the big island! The condo was exactly what we had hoped for and much more! Lee and James have thought of everything, literally. It was in a great location, and across from the best snorkeling beach! This was our first time with a vacation rental and I must say, Lee and James were excellent communicators and kept us informed from the time we booked 10 months prior to the vacation, to arrival with check in details. Most definitely will be back to the big island, and would love to stay here again!!
