About the owner: I have been coming to Hawaii, the big island specifically, since the 50's. this is my home away from home, and I love to share my love of the island with my guests and my friends!
Why the Owner Chose Kahaluu Beach: This is a one of a kind complex. Small with only 15 units, and each one with a full ocean view. Koa cabinets and doors,new granite counters and so much space make this apartment different from so many others.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo: There is a feeling of Ohana (family) as soon as you walk in. You enter the front door and the ocean greets you out the floor to ceiling windows. I have slowly selected local art to adorn the walls and make my home really be my Maluhia Punana--my Peaceful Nest.
