About Gabriele Hahnen


I’m so happy to welcome you to Kona Hawaii which has been my home for over 20 years.

I am a flight attendant with Hawaiian Air and am pleased to offer a home away from home to my friends, family, and guests.

Did I mention I was born and raised in Germany?

My friend and I stayed at this condo for 11 days and it was perfect. The location near the beach was great. The owner was friendly and flexible to our needs. We're already planning another trip there!

I had to make a last minute trip to Kona. Finding this condo was a save. It is conveniently located and had everything you need.

Gabriele was very helpful and easy to reach for all my questions. Right from the start the owner of this condo was great to deal with; she is very courteous in her interactions. Even with short notice of renting this unit everything went smoothly and prior to my arrival I was sent everything I needed to check into the condo. There were no issues at all.

I would definitely recommend staying here.

So excited to have booked this wonderful condo for next winter after missing this past season. My month stay in 2015 was amazing relative to both the accommodations and Gabriele's hospitality. The unit was as depicted and Gabriele went above and beyond to ensure a fantastic vacation experience. Can't wait!!

A nightmare landlord, avoid at all costs

  • 1 of 5

I wish I paid attention to the other one star review. The unit is fine. However, the landlord is dishonest and the embodiment of your worst HomeAway nightmare. There is nothing about this property that should tempt you to risk dealing with her.

First, when my second payment was due, the landlord called me after 11 pm. She complained to me about the cut HomeAway would take from the rental, stating HomeAway's fees were too high. She floated that I cancel the reservation, cut HomeAway out of the transaction and pay her directly by check, which she said would be cheaper for both of us. I declined her dishonest proposal.

Second, when we checked in, the worn vertical blinds to the sliding door were broken. The apparatus to move the blinds was taped together. One blind panel was on the floor. The clip for that panel was broken. Somebody punctured the panel below the broken clip so that in theory the panel could be hung up. The blinds did not open and close easily. Put frankly, the blinds were junk.

We decided to live with the blinds and enjoy our vacation. After we checked out I received notice that my entire deposit was being withheld because the blinds needed replacement (as well as a wood dolphin my kids broke that is generously worth $20 and which I told the landlord I had no problem replacing). The landlord said my family had broken the panel to the blinds (the one that was on the floor broken when we walked in) and that we were responsible for the blinds not being able to open and close easily, which is untrue. In subsequent interactions, she accused us of trying to repair the blinds with glue, which is absurd. In sum, we have been accused of breaking something that was broken when we arrived and that was also worn and haphazardly taped together.

We are out $200. The landlord says we should have contacted her about the condition of the blinds instead of trying to “repair” them, which is silly because we never tried to repair anything. The landlord effectively conceded that the panel was broken when we arrived (despite initially accusing us of breaking it) and that the blinds were taped together. Yet she insists on taking our money.

It does not feel good to be falsely accused and stolen from. I’ve reported the incidents to HomeAway. I hope they remove her from the site so there are not other victims. But I’m writing this review just in case they allow her to stay on. Buyer beware.

Owner's Response: Disrespectful Guest It is really sad that this guest went to such lengths to discredit and dispute a simple accident. I provided a clean unit with everything in proper working condition. After his departure I found broken decorations and the blinds were damaged. Instead of notifying me of the mishap he denied damaging the blinds and claimed he was going to replace the wooden dolphin after his return home. I'm renting this condo for 4 years now and this is the first and only time I withheld the damage deposit from a guest. Aloha Gabriele

Nice, clean, and mostly comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The condo was clean and exactly as described. Everything we needed was provided, even snorkel fins and bug spray (thank you!) the condo was located in a convenient but not too busy area. It was nice to be across the street from the beach and da poke shack. The condo was a bit noisy from the outside car traffic (as the balcony faces the main road - especially if you sleep in the living room) and the upstairs visitors walked around noisily every day. Another thing was the heat, we had all the fans blowing and windows open, and it was only mildly cool (even with the ac on). It would have been nice if there was an ac unit in the bedroom as it was hard to get the cool air into the bedroom. All in all we had a good visit to the big island,thank you Gabriele for responding quickly to all our emails and being a thoughtful host!

Wonderful! Loved our vacation at your property!

  • 5 of 5

Everything was as pictured - clean and beautiful! A gorgeous plate of island fruit (pineapple/grapes/star fruit/mango/avocado, etc) awaited us on the counter and it was delicious! I also appreciated finding a variety of condiments in the fridge & ample seasonings in the cupboards. I was surprised but happy to find that there was also bug repellent, sun products etc under the bathroom sink.

This unit was in a great location for access to many of the things we wanted to do. It was only 2 miles from one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island as well. Our little boy loved to stand on the veranda and watch the cars, bikes, & people go by.

We thought it would be great to meet Gabriele and she accommodated our wish very graciously. She was very kind and helpful about learning about many sights we could see on the island and answering any questions we had - even offering to give us a ride to a trailhead that was difficult to find should our schedules connect. She went out of her way to go the extra mile! Thanks Gabriele! We really enjoyed our visit with you!

We would stay in this unit in a heartbeat should we return to the Big Island!
