About Gladys Creitz

Our unit is family operated. The Big Island has been home for over 13 years. It is peaceful, with a bit of small town heart to it. We love the beaches, mountains, paniolo country, forests, vegetation, volcano, rain forest, gold coast, plantation towns, and so much more--always something new to discover!

It may be a Big Island, but you just might meet someone you know in this small world.

English and Spanish spoken and Aloha offered to make your visit with us memorable.

Why Gladys Creitz chose Kona Coast

We have placed much aloha and into this property to make it enjoyable for your visit. It is intended to offer a place of refuge from the business and complications of life. It offers peace and serenity, and a lovely view while still being within easy access to the wonderful sights and activities that Kona and the Big Island have to offer.

Wonderful home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

Bright, cheery, clean and comfortable condo, with a spacious kitchen, 2 bathrooms and a nice king-sized bed for great sleeping-air conditioner in bedroom, 2 ceiling fans in main area plus cross ventilation through screened doors. The condo provided everything we needed for a wonderful stay (including a cooler, beach towels, and chairs for outings!). Washer/dryer was a real plus! A good location, felt private and safe, pool was great, very close to a shopping center, restaurants, theater and farmer's markets just up the hill. The bay was a nice short walk (or drive) just down the hill, great for a dip in the ocean. Enjoyed having coffee in the mornings on the back patio, looking at all the flowers and palms and listening to the birds. Gladys provided us real warm gracious hospitality, and we thank her for such a great experience. Mahalo!

Perfect stay at Kahaluu-Keauhou

  • 5 of 5

This was an absolutely wonderful experience. The condo location is perfect - 5 min to the shore with perfect opportunity for an evening stroll and sunset.

Condo fully equipped and has everything you need. Our family (two adults and two teenage boys) felt right at home were we found everything that required for comfortable stay at Big Island. Parking space was right at the door and fully secure. Gladys was so helpful and welcomed us as old friends. We will recommend this condo to our friends and already looking forward to visit it again!.

Great Condo, Great Location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect. It was very comfortably furnished. Loved having the washer dryer and the full kitchen. Great to have the BBQ on the lanai. The location is great. Very quiet and peaceful. The grounds of the complex are really nice too.

Gladys has thought of everything to make your stay enjoyable.

We will definitely be back. We come over twice a year and are happy that we have found a new rental that we love.

Darling condo in a beautiful location!

  • 5 of 5

My fiance' and I stayed at this condo during our first trip to Hawaii. It was SO much nicer than staying at a hotel! We felt very much at home and really enjoyed the location, quiet atmosphere and beautiful landscaping. Having a washer and dryer readily available was wonderful and being able to cook our own food saved on expenses and made us feel more at home. We enjoyed having coffee and breakfast on the patio while listening to the birds sing. Watching the lizards and gecko's run around was amusing as well! The air conditioning unit in the Master bedroom was greatly appreciated. Our parking was free and the spot was located right outside our door. The condo itself was darling; very clean with bright colors. Grocery stores and shops were right down the road and sightseeing adventures were right outside our door! Gladys made us feel very welcome, like we were friends already. I have already recommended this property to my parents, who are looking at coming out next year. We will definitely make reservations with Gladys for this property again in the future :)

Perfect vacation rental for those who are looking for something different than a hotel.

  • 5 of 5

Simply put, I really enjoyed my stay. I wanted to try something different than saying at some of the hotels in the Kona area, and to my surprise, it was a good change.

The rental is located in a nice area and faces a golf course. The place is clean, and it does not seem like there are many people around, so the place is nice and quiet.

The furnishings are wonderful, along with the kitchen and the master bedroom and bathroom. This gives off a "warm Hawaiian" feel which I did not receive in other places I stayed.

I would diffidently recommend this to someone, and expect to see me again.

Our oasis

  • 5 of 5

We stayed many places on our trip and this was by far the best: the amount of space was wonderful, the bed was the most comfortable, the whole place was clean and quiet. The detail the owner had put into providing everything needed was wonderful.
