About Larry Gahagan

My daughter loves to come visit the Island to visit me. I live on the Hilo side of the island. I am a happy, down to earth guy with a welcoming sense of life and living. I am always interested in travel and discovery and trying something new. I enjoy meeting open minded people who enjoy exploring new places and trying new things.

Photography is my passion. If you'd like recommendations on places to shoot on the Big Island, ask me!

Anyone who is easy-going, sociable, and loves to laugh will get along great with me.

I have one daughter living on the mainland. She is a great young professional woman.

I look forward to your stay on the Big Island. I travel the world and love to discover new places and revisit my favorite 'old' places, too.

Larry Gahagan purchased this condo in 1996

Why Larry Gahagan chose Kona Coast

My condo is a reminder of the earlier years in Hawaiian tourism. Immaculate gardens and pool area are the best in the village. You are within walking distance to village services, shops and numerous restaurants. One of only three royal palaces in the U.S. is just a couple blocks away.

Located in a lush tropical setting, the condo reminds us of old Hawaiian territorial style. Enjoy basking in the Hawaiian sun at the pool or hot tub, or just across the street at the beach areas. There is also a spa on site. Full laundry facilities are located on site for your convenience. The property is centrally located and is a great starting/ ending location for all your site seeing trips. You can buy great Hawaiian fresh fruits at the near by farmers market.

What makes this condo unique

Cleaning service is done at your checkout. If you desire additional cleanings please inform us for availability and the costs.

Perfect for a small getaway

  • 5 of 5

The property had everything I needed for a small time away to recharge and regroup. It's perfect for 1 or 2 people, anymore and you'd be stepping on each other. Walking distance to everything. The owners and care takers were pleasant and helpful. The only thing I would request would be to have a beach chair or chairs available to guest on hand during their stay, other than that... perfect.

vrbo @ kona islander inn

  • 4 of 5

We would absolutely recommend Larry's unit @ the Kona Islander Inn; and Cathe the point of contact during your stay is always just a phone call away. She is very helpful and has a cooler or extra fan if you need. We would suggest that if your departing Hawaii on a red eye flight ( those leaving later at night ) that you book the unit for that extra day as we do. Some of the people we became friends with had to checkout of their units at 11am but their flight didn't leave until 10/11 etc at night - making for a very long day, with no where to be, and relax before a very long return trip home. Having the unit during this time allows for an easy day to prepare, pack, unwind at the pool, take walk or a nap, and shower before heading to the airport. Red eye flights are hard enough; and unbearable if you spend your last day tied to your rental car or sitting at a park waiting to go to the airport. We felt really bad for those who were unable to get a room for the day or had to jump through hoops to get one. So make your last day an easy relaxing day if your on a red eye flight and book that extra day when you reserve the room. Hope this helps... best regards & safe / enjoyable travels.

A little oasis in the heart of Kailua

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying at this little condo. We were immediately charmed by the 'Old Hawaii' style of the lobby. The pool and grounds are maintained daily, and a lovely path through lush vegetation leads right to shopping, dining and ocean access. Though the studio is small, it has everything we needed. Between the appliances inside and the barbecues by the pool we cooked what and when we wanted. We would definitely stay here on our next trip to the island.

Kona Islander

  • 4 of 5

Great location, small pool, poor parking (50 spaces for 150 units), unit was clean and well maintained, very small kitchenette but we ate out mostly, grounds were well maintained and the hotel staff was very friendly. No coolers or chairs for the beach but they did have a broom and a vacuum and some spare shopping bags.

Great stay

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfectly located if you are looking to be near the Kona action and within easy driving distance of lots of great places at an affordable price. The condo was spottlessly clean, pleasant and well equipped, The complex was clean with basic amenities. Shopping and restaurants were within easy walking distance. The property manager went above and beyond, helping us at 9 pm on Saturday when we got lost and bringing us fresh flowers during the week. I'd recommend it highly!

We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed staying here because it worked so well for us! The strong wifi kept us in touch with home, we were able to cook so many meals with the barbeque and the appliances provided. We loved having our meals on the lanai (patio) because it looked out onto the pool and peaceful courtyard. Every morning we woke up to fresh air blowing in, and the birds singing. We did not rent a car until the last day, so parking was not an issue. We walked everywhere. We snorkeled by the pier, shopped at the farmers market, attended the oldest church, and some YWAM events. It is a very friendly, laid back, safe place to vacation. We had planned do some tours but it was so nice in this area, we stayed local. The manager was very helpful too, and just a phone call away. We would recommend this place for anyone wanting a peaceful, relaxing holiday.

The Big Island of Hawai'i is known for adventure ranging from whale watching to mountain climbing, and there are gorgeous beaches where you can soak up some sun too. The Kona Coast stretches for more than 60 miles on the western side of the island. Beyond its historical significance, special coffee, and opportunities for water sports, there are also some great beaches that will make you want to put your feet up and stay awhile.
