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.

Our villa was very clean and well maintained. It was comfortable and we felt right at home. Interior was spacious with beautiful view. Checking in was extremely user friendly. Overall it was a bargain for what you get and I will definitely stay there again.

Wonderful property and super convenient to anywhere on the west coast

  • 5 of 5

This was our very first time renting a vacation property and, after staying at this condo, I hope we do not have to stay in hotels again while traveling = it was awesome! The renting process, checking in, checking out, etc. was super smooth. The condo itself was clean, well equipped with everything we needed and more and perfect for a family with a tween and a teenager. Our two sons loved having their own bedroom and bathroom and the fact that their room was configured with two single beds for them. The condo is in a great location, convenient to so many places on the Kona coast. If we ever get to visit Kona again, I see no reason why we would stay anywhere else! Thank you!

This is a very comfortable condo. The view from the lani is wonderful: palms and deep blue sea. This condo is a short walk to the best snorkeling beach in Kona.

Fantastic location for sunsets and snorkeling!

  • 5 of 5

Pictures of the property are spot-on. The kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and other kitchen accessories. Having a kitchen bar was fantastic for feeding the boys. Great location, close to Kona with lots of shopping and restaurants. The beds were comfortable and having two bathrooms was nice since there were four of us. Sunsets possible from either your private balcony or even from the infinity edge pool. Definitely some of the best snorkeling on the island right across the street.

Lovely Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

It is our first-time-experience to stay in a vacation home and also our first time to Hawaii. My husband was not sure if my decision is correct before our arrival since he worries about to stay in a vacation home will have more trouble than hotel. However, I am totally CORRECT this time!

Hee and James always replied my email in a speedy time and Brit took several phone calls from us and solved our questions at the same time! Brit is so helpful to us, she even mentioned that if we do have any question, just call her, don't be hesitate!

The 2 rooms are big enough for me, my husband and 2 kids. A lot of board games hidden in the TV stand storages helped my kids to kill their time. Washer and Dryer are very new. Kitchenware includes everything panini machine, juicer, ricer cooker, almost every kind of seasonings ... and full set of tableware as well which is really exciting to me as I never imagine a vacation house will have such a fully prepared kitchen! I can feel Hee and James have a great taste from the kitchen.

Rooms/bathrooms- Bathroom is Very Clean and Bright with soaps, shampoos, conditioner, and body wash. Master Room bed is very comfy but a little bit soft for us. 2nd Room's bed is good for kids- not too soft or too hard. Both rooms have TV and we watched a little bit for NBA final.

Closets have snorkeling equipment and surf board and toys to build sand castle. Very useful for us! Even has water shoes prepared. Very thoughtful!

Lani has the best view for sunset and the beach with coconut trees, we have one afternoon tea there.

Walking distance to the beach park across the street so we can go to the beach in the afternoon and back home to shower! The location we stayed is very calm and we really like it.

We used the AC but to be frankly just couple hours a day is enough, 4 hour timer is good. Sometimes we just turn on 2 hours and let it off to save the energy.

Just one thing that living room with carpet- which I like it but makes me sneeze a little bit, I tried to find vacuum cleaner but can't find it, since it is not a big deal so didn't call Brit for help.

Really like this vacation home, if I have chance, will definitely come back again!
