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 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.

Excellent, well appointed condo.

  • 5 of 5

First, I felt slightly misled by the cover photo expecting to be in the top floor "penthouse" pictured overlooking the pool area. Actual photos of the unit are in the ad though. This condo still has excellent ocean views from the balcony and is in a good location across the road from a great snorkeling spot and close to several nice beaches. The condo is well appointed with all kinds of extras, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, sand/kids toys, extra linens, etc... pretty much everything you need. $10/day extra for A/C is reasonable and if you stay in the summertime I highly recommend or it gets a bit warm inside. Wouldn't hesitate to stay at this property again.

Excellent facility and location across from the beach.

  • 5 of 5

Incredible vacation rental spot. Great sunsets from our lanai. Snorkeling across the street was outstanding. Pool was great to cool off in. Britt was attentive to our questions. We recommend this to anyone looking for a rental in Kona.

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!
