About the owner: I fell in love with Hawaii's Big Island during my first visit in 1981. When my daughter Deidre moved there in 2001, I knew it would become a regular vacation spot. As we explore new sites together, we are continually reminded that Hawaii is an evolving island with beauty that awakens the senses. You will fall in love with the island, its culture and history, the same way we have. We are a mom and daughter team. I had the good fortune of raising my four children near the white sand beaches of Southern California. When I moved to Oregon, I realized how much I missed the calm, warm Pacific Ocean. Hawaii became the perfect choice for a vacation home, especially since we have family and friends living on both the Hilo and Kona sides of the Big Island. Each visit brings an abundance of surprises as we immerse ourselves in the Hawaiian experience. When not working with preschoolers, Deidre spends her free time surfing and exploring new locations. She can provide you with personal recommendations to make your vacation memorable.
Why the Owner Chose Kalani Kai: This affordable studio offers a comfortable setting to rest after busy activities of the day. We especially enjoy the corner unit which gives us more privacy and the garden view from the comfort of the lanai. You can kick up your feet, feel the ocean breeze on the lanai and plan your vacation activities, just a short stroll into town.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: Live among local culture. An affordable alternative to the more secluded resorts. You will be in the heart of the local cultural festivals, farmers markets, and nightlife. You can save a bundle off restaurant expenses and parking fees. Enjoy your morning coffee on the lanai.
