About Leona Forsberg

OHANA HUAKAI 'Family Journey' join us in enjoying this amazing property. We believe that everyone who comes to Hawaii has a story of their Hawaiian Journey and what brought them here and touched their hearts. Come write your story and stay at OHANA HUAKAI!

Welcome to our OHANA HUAKAI! We are Bob and Leona Forsberg from Lyons, Colorado. We own and I operate a wedding venue in the Foothills of Boulder County for 18+ years. Bob's travels have taken him around the world managing his company that produces Environmental Monitoring Equipment. Hooray for frequent flyer miles and 1K! Travel and Hospitality are very important to our family! Our four daughters all worked for Disney and the youngest is still a Manager at of one of Mickey's Hotels in Orlando. The 3 older daughters help me with the Event Venue in Colorado. Our 3 grandchildren are awaiting their first trips to Hawaii. We started bringing the girls to Hawaii when our youngest was 2. We bought our first home in Kona in 1991! Kanaloa at Kona gave us the perfect escape from our very busy lives to be a family and enjoy those special memories! Years ago we sold our Hawaiian home and after our daughters finished college there was a huge hole in our hearts, so the hunt began for the Perfect Vacation Home. Now we are happy to share with you our find, the one of a kind Hali'i Kai 'spreading out to sea' Resort home. Aloha A hui hou 'until the next time' -Bob and Leona

Leona Forsberg purchased this condo in 2011

Why Leona Forsberg chose Puako

We wanted it all! When we told our realtor that we really come to see the whales each year...she said well you need to be at Hali'i Kai!

The best of what we have come to know as Hawaii! Breathtaking Sunsets, a Private Bar and Grill, a Property designed with Privacy at its core. The Resort construction is of the highest quality and we absolutely wanted a large 3 bedroom and 3 bath floor plan on the top floors. Waikoloa Beach Resort is a Master Planned Community laid out with the land and the preservation of historical landmarks as its core principals. The large gourmet kitchen was a must for us! The opportunity to have many areas to walk, this was missing in our previous purchase and we are passionate about exploring the many paths and trails that lace throughout the resort property and surrounding community.

What makes this condo unique

Personal Concierge Service to make your stay a unique and custom experience.

The perfect base to explore the Island from supplied with everything we have come to find essential to make our trips focused on enjoying and not preparing and buying the little supplies and equipment at every turn.

We look forward to hearing your opinions of the experience of sitting at sunset at the private Ocean Club and soaking in the 180 degree panoramic views! We hope a Whale or two Journeying to the waters of Hawaii are in your future!

Awesome condo for family

  • 5 of 5

Nice spacious condo

Lissette and Stacy were great to work with anytime we needed them. My family had a great time here

Very clean, lots of extras, beds were awesome

I would only make one suggestion to the owner, to get Tommy Bahamas chairs they are great for hiking to beaches so you don’t have to carry them.

Thank you for the use of your beautiful condo

A wonderful home away from home! You can tell there is much attention paid to detail. There was a nicely stocked kitchen, bathrooms too. Very appeasing interior and exterior, great location with lots of amenities. It was great to be within walking distance to a restaurant when we did not want to cook. When we had a problem (whoops, clogged drain), it was taken care of very quickly by Lissette. We stayed for two weeks with 8 of us one week and 5 the next. There was plenty of room for us all.

The most fabulous stay!

  • 5 of 5

I spent a lot of time reading reviews before choosing this condo. It was perfect from the first minute to the last. It was the best stocked condo I have ever stayed in and I have stayed in about 15 VRBO homes or condos. The condo is very clean and beautifully decorated. The development is immaculately maintained, with a gorgeous landscape, and the pool area and exercise room is perfectly situated! We saw dolphins swim by while working out in the mornings! It is on the 2nd floor and a walk to the pool. The Waikoloa area is on the dry side of the island and we visited many amazing beaches. We snorkeled and boogie boarded which was our teenage boys' favorite things to do. We also drove all around the island. Please note that the grocery store in the resort is very expensive. So make sure to make your purchases in the surrounding towns. The owner/manager were both so helpful and willing to help in any way possible. Thanks for a most wonderful week! My family of 6 loved every minute of the beauty, sunshine, cool breezes, gorgeous beaches and Aloha Spirit of this place! We hope to return! Amy and Family!

Once again a fantastic trip to Hawaii!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time staying in unit 24F and we will definitely be back again. The owners and their management team were very helpful and made our stay worry free. The condo had everything we needed and the property was as always, just perfect! The poolside sunsets were the highlight of our trip. Can't wait to return.

May be our very best vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

We loved everything about this stay! The accommodation was perfect and our family of 5 had plenty of space to spread out. The location was really great as a starting point to the daily adventures we went on. We went to the Hilo side of the island for waterfall hunting, down to Volcano National Park, explored many of the exquisite beaches on the coast, found magical snorkeling spots, visited and shopped in Kona. And we LOVED the oceanfront pool and bar/grill! It was so nice to end the days exploration with a dip in the pool and a cocktail while watching the incredible sunsets!

The property was perfect! Every little detail was taken care of. The kitchen was stocked with thoughtful little extras. We enjoyed every breakfast on the Lani. We are excited to plan our trip back.
