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.

Great for families

  • 4 of 5

Location is perfect - right across the road from one of the best snorkelling beaches. Plenty of marine life including turtles. The property is well taken care of and comes with everything you might need. My kids loved the pool and we enjoyed the beautiful views from the lanai! Thanks Hee, James and Brit.

Buy the A/C

  • 4 of 5

We loved the location of this condo. We snorkeled every morning. Do pay extra for the A/C unless you are comfortable sleeping in temps inside in the low 80s.

Beautiful property, great location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in March 2017 in this 3-bedroom condo. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Lots of room for 3 adults and 2 teens. Britt, the property manager, was extremely responsive and helpful when I had questions. Owners Hee and James promptly answered all my questions before we arrived. The location is great and we enjoyed snorkeling at Kahaluu beach across the street, where we saw numerous turtles. I highly recommend this condo rental and would love to stay here again!

Excellent for family with kids ages 5-18

  • 5 of 5

Reservations were easy to make and communication was easy throughout the process. Upon arrival, it was simple to locate. Plenty of parking at all times. Just down a set of steps to the entry, which is keyless. The keyless entry was a huge bonus, as our older kids could come and go as they pleased without trying to keep track of a key. Also, if we wanted to skibble across the street for a snorkel we didn't need a key - just our mask and snorkel. The outdoor shower was very close to the unit for convenient rinsing off. Now back to the unit. It was clean and easy to keep clean with a great layout for us. Floors were all tile and could be swept quickly. There was some decor, but it wasn't in the way. All the appliances were functional and we especially loved the blender for making smoothies with fresh pineapple & other local ingredients. I loved the coffee bean grinder & maker for that Kona coffee! We all slept well and thought the beds were very comfortable. We heard a little quiet normal noise from other units on a couple occasions, but it wasn't disturbing. (We probably were the disturbers!) Showers both had great pressure and didn't change temperature while running. Showers were big enough to wash a couple kids at once. Kids! They were thrilled with sand toys and pool noodles! There are also mask/snorkel sets, which are a huge bonus. Our 5-year-old had her own set and Kahaluu was a perfect spot for her to snorkel safely, as it's very protected. We chose this location in hopes everyone would enjoy it, and we did! The snorkeling was excellent - we saw nearly all the same critters at Kahaluu as we did at other spots around the island. Kahaluu beach always felt safe and was never too crowded. Every morning groundskeepers tidied up and there were lifeguards most days. We could walk up the hill (maybe 1/3 mile) to shop (grocery, drugstore, bookstore, etc.) for necessities. There is a lane for walking along Alii Drive, and Alii itself isn't as busy as I thought it would be. It's easy to cross to get to Kahaluu and takes about 1 minute from the condo! The condo area always felt safe and clean too and had fun flora and fauna. Blooming flowers, grinning geckos, and palms galore. We didn't use the pool much, but it looked clean. When we arrived we realized we would need A/C after all; we phoned Britt, and she got us cooling off in minutes. Anytime we contacted Britt or James, we received a response very quickly.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay, as a group of three couples, in James and Hee's home was wonderful. Located centrally in the Kailua-Kona area, it was a perfect spot to start each day and venture out. The rooms were clean, spacious and nicely decorated. The pool was clean and had an amazing view, as did the hot tub. We grilled out one night, and ate out in the lanai each evening. James was immediately receptive and accommodating to our needs, and answered any questions we might have had. We followed his suggestions for things to do, and were thrilled with the various adventures. Hang Loose Boat tours is a MUST! Should we find ourselves on the Big Island again, we would most definitely choose to stay in James and Hee's home again. Mahalo!

What a Wonderful Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

The property is well taken care of and very nicely furnished with every thing you might need. I came with my 3 grown up daughters and we all had a great time. The location is wonderful and the view will be in my memory for a long time. We sat on the lanai mornings and evenings enjoying our coffee with the view. Thanks for providing us a great place to stay.
