About Linda and Tom Dreher

We are two lovely people from So Cal who met in junior high, stayed friends through high school, and married 30 years later. We've dreamed of moving to Kona, and knew this was the place for us when we spent only 10 minutes at the DMV and got our Hawaii licences. Literally just 10 minutes! We love the island and the many things we have done and discovered in paradise.

The day-by-day the dream of being full-time Kama'ainas became a reality in 2017. We purchased a few of properties in the Kona area over the years, and now we are permanent residents.

Linda and Tom Dreher purchased this condo in 2014

Why Linda and Tom Dreher chose Kailua-Kona

You will not find a more beautiful 2 bedroom condo in all of Kona. It's right off Ali'i Drive and steps away from 10 restaurants. You don't even need to rent a car if you don't want. Also, there's no stairs in or out of the unit. Great for Seniors or families with small children.

What makes this condo unique

2 bedroom, 3 BATHS! Yes, three baths! Three people can take a shower at the same time. Where are you going to find that? Huge unit (1200 sq ft) easily sleeps the maximum capacity of 6 people (that's the max, house and HOA rules). King bed master, 2 twins that can be converted to a king on request in 2nd bedroom (for a small fee). Queen sofa sleeper. Electronic lock so you don't need a key to get into the unit, just type in the code. No stairs on and out of the unit. GREAT FOR SENIORS AND RUGRATS. 1/2 block from town, seriously... you can walk to 20 different restaurant and too many shops to count. Walk to Honl Beach and Kona Pier easily.

Wonderful Condo!!!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many different condo units in the Kona Pacific including Linda and Toms other condo but I think this is my favorite. It's on the main level so didn't have to deal with elevators. Thought the pool and road noise may be an issue but didn't hear either. Condo is close to restaurants, bars and shops. The condo was clean, well equipped with kitchen supplies. Lots of beach chairs, boogie boards etc. View of the ocean during the day and the Bay at night from the lanai was beautiful. We had one small issue one day and Tom had maintenance knocking on the door within ten minutes. Wonderful people to deal with. I would highly recommend this condo. I would most definitely stay here again. My only hope is that they aren't booked when I want it! Mahalo Linda and Tom!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for another staff during Iron Man. We are happy you enjoyed being so close to the finish line and were able to walk to the race from our unit. I hope you also got to enjoy using the BBQs and the pool area during your stay. Look forward to hearing from you again in the future.

It's a nice condo with lots of extras in a nice location.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is "accessible " to a wheelchair if you were just visiting for an hour. The narrow hallways and 90 degree turns are difficult. The master bath does have a walk in shower, but none of the 3 bathrooms are wheelchair accessible. None of the bathrooms have grab bars anywhere. Nice as the condo is, it was a very difficult, uncomfortable, dangerous week for us

Owner's Response: Thank you very much for your comments. We have had a number of guests with wheelchairs visit our condo and have not heard complaints in the past, but as this is a condo, and not a hotel, the wheelchair accessibility you were looking for would not be found in probably 100 percent of the vacation rentals found at Kona Pacific condos. It is explained on our listing verbatim there are "no senior rails in bathrooms or showers." I am wondering why you did not notice this in the listing. Also, all the photos show all three bathrooms without senior railings. We do understand that your husband is severely disabled, but we did offer exactly what was promised. We never claimed to be ADA compliant. We are on the bottom floor, we have access to the elevator close to the unit, we have a double door entrance and a straight shot from the foyer to a full bathroom. The master bathroom does have a walk in shower. Our doors are all normal sized, as are the doors in every unit in Kona Pacific (and as you would find in most vacations rentals unless they claim to be ADA compliant). It might benefit you in the future to ask "is your rental ADA complaint" before you look for another vacation rental. Or maybe, choose hotels with designated ADA compliant rooms when traveling. I think you would be much happier with your stay.

Central Location for a Perfect Vacation

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at Kona Pacific. The unit was spacious and clean (there were geckos that came and went, but this is Hawaii and our kids loved them). We loved having breakfast and coffee on the lanai overlooking the ocean; and, the lanai was a perfect setting to have a beer after a day in the sun. The beach gear in the closet was very convenient, and saved us a lot of money - we surely would have bought towels, snorkel masks, water shoes, and rented beach umbrellas otherwise.

The property itself was nice. We used the pool a few times, and it was clean and relaxing. We were able to walk to all of the shops and cafes in Kailua. The Royal Kona Resort is right across the street for a Mai Tai, or a view of the surf. Parking was convenient, and it was very easy to get to major highways. Would stay here again.

Owner's Response: So happy to hear that your family enjoyed your vacation at our condo. We also love sitting on the lanai and viewing the ocean. The Royal Kona across the street has one of the best views on the island for a sunset dinner, and it's great fun listening to local artists or catching sports on their many TVs (hello football season!). We hope that we will see you again, and mahalo for the terrific review.

Clean, quiet and close to downtown Kona

  • 5 of 5

This condo exceeded our expectations. It's in a quiet neighborhood, has a beautiful view of the sunsets, and impressive facilities.

The unit itself is clean and is clearly well-maintained. The kitchen and bathrooms are up to date. The breeze was enough to cool the unit during the day, though we used the bedroom air conditioners at night. The air conditioning consists of window shakers - one in each bedroom and one in the living room. The bedroom units were quiet enough to sleep at night.

The location was perfect for us. A short 300m walk and you are at the edge of downtown Kona. It's far enough away from Ali'i Drive that you don't hear the road noise, yet close enough to get you downtown.

The Kona Pacific complex itself is beautiful. It's clean and well maintained. The pool was a welcome refresh after a day of sightseeing. The three barbecues in the pool area were enough for everyone to share.

The property owner was fantastic to work with. Quick, clear and responsive communications. All this made for a most memorable vacation.

Owner's Response: It is always a great day when we hear our guests have enjoyed their stay at A102. This unit is so large and has such a terrific view, we love coming here ourselves and spending time enjoying the two bedrooms and three full baths. Thank you so much for all your kind words, and we hope you come again in the near future. Mahalo, Tom and Linda

Convenient Kona Location

  • 4 of 5

The location of this unit was excellent for walking around downtown Kona. Great for teenagers that wanted independence. Was very clean and had all basic amenities. We enjoyed our stay despite a water leaking problem from an upper unit. Management and owner were quick to respond. The rental was very good value for the price.
