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 2015

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 2005) 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.

Wonderful property, perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We loved staying here! The condo was clean, new and beautiful and well stocked with everything we needed. The beach across the street is perfect for snorkeling and safe for families. Our kids loved the pool and kids' gear, and the owners really went out of their way to make sure we had a great trip. If you're traveling with young kids, this place is your best bet. Thank you Hee and James!

Fabulous Kona apartment

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 5 days in this very comfortable apartment. Plenty of space for the 5 of us. Location is perfect - right across the road from one of the best snorkelling beaches in the area. Plenty of marine life including turtles. Snorkels, masks and reef shoes all provided. Spacious bedrooms, huge bathrooms, shops just up the road. This unit had everything we wanted. Wish we could have stayed longer.

Nice apartment and lovely pool area!

  • 5 of 5

Nice to be away from hustle & bustle of Kona yet close enough to enjoy it. Great snorkelling right across the road & close to Shopping centre for groceries & good food at the sports bar.

Perfect, best vacation ever !

  • 5 of 5

I almost don’t want anyone to know what a great place this is, as I am already trying to figure out a way to come back and hope it is not booked up !

But since the owners were SO nice I feel compelled to be honest. First off the home looks exactly like it did in the photos, which is nice. Truth in advertising, what a concept. It was very clean and well maintained, with comfortable beds and nice linens.

Our family ranged in age from 7 to 85, and all felt comfortable. The condo was stocked with everything you would need, such as snorkel gear, water shoes, boogie boards, coolers for beach and beach towels. Meaning that you do not have to buy or rent any of this equipment while you are here, an added bonus. So upon arrival you are stocked up ready to go. A great view, great location, central to everything yet still just far enough away to avoid huge traffic and tourist. The unit has a lovely view and is very quiet.

Honestly it felt like we were home.

But for me the best part of this home was the service from the on site manager and the owners. When we arrived, after several hours we realized the air conditioner was not working. I contacted the on site Manager, Britt, and she was so kind, apologetic and immediately worked towards resolving the issue. She was even able to get an air conditioning repair person out on Labor Day! We understand, things break, it happens, it is no one’s fault; but it is how issues are handled that makes or breaks the vacation. If it had taken all week to repair or the owners did not care, we would have been miserable. A vacation we planned and saved a year for could have been ruined. I really felt like the owners (who also contacted me to make sure we were taken care of) and Britt really understood that, and for many of us this is a once in a lifetime trip; and they understood that naturally we want our vacation to be hassle free and relaxing. It felt like they really cared about our comfort. The issue was resolved and we had a lovely vacation. So rest assured if – unintentionally – anything does go wrong, the owners and manager take care of it quickly, so you can get on with having FUN.

I should also mention it is great for families. I traveled with my three elementary age children, and this was a perfect location, well stocked with items kids need (even a ball). But great WiFi and TV for Grandpa. We are already scheming to figure out a way to come back and will definitely stay here again.

Thank you Hee, James, and Brit

Family friendly, highly recommended !!

  • 5 of 5

A great unit in a great location. My wife, me and the 3 kids (7,9 & 13) stayed there for 6 days and could not ask for more. Plenty of room for all, a very nice and fully stocked kitchen, nothing was missing. We enjoyed sunset dinners in the lanai, the kids loved the pool that is overlooking the ocean, and we took advantage of the complementary snorkeling gears and went to the fabulous kahaluu beach (right across the street) on a daily basis. Highly recommended!!

An excellent stay - couldn't have asked for anything better and can't think of anything that was missing. The condo is very well equipped. Hee and James kept us very well informed throughout the booking process.

Thank you for making our stay so memorable.
