About Mike & Theresa

We are avid world travelers, and Hawaii is one of our favorite places to chill out. We're from California's Wine County, 1 hour north of San Francisco. As experienced travelers who frequently stay in Vacation Rental homes ourselves, we are pretty good at providing the features you'll want to make our property your Home Away From Home!

Mike & Theresa purchased this condo in 2016

Why Mike & Theresa chose Kailua-Kona

We have always been drawn to the rugged beauty of Hawaii. Over 30 years ago, Theresa actually lived in this condo complex (in a different condo), and we love the Big Island. We were dawn to this condo by its fantastic view.

What makes this condo unique

This condo had just had a beautiful renovation completed right before we purchased it. Gorgeous kitchen and bathroom make it comfy. The always-moving ocean mesmerizes you right from the kitchen counter. We love waking up in one of our favorite places in the world!

Wonderful condo & location!

  • 5 of 5

Lazy Palm Condo did not disappoint! It's the perfect size for two people. Very well stocked with more than basic essentials to get by until you go shopping. Clean and well maintained condo and the grounds are well kept too. Great location to walk to beaches, walk to the pool across the street or catch the trolley to go into Kona. Mike & Theresa are very quick to respond to you if needed. Would definitely stay here again!

Awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

The condo is perfect for 2. Everything we needed or wanted that we did not bring with us was provided. Beach towels,chairs,coolers,blender, ice maker & on & on. The condo sits across Ali’i street from the main complex and the ocean BUT you have an ocean view from the living room and the lanai. Sunset views every night. Mike & Therea were very attentive keeping in contact with us by email while they were on vacation, wanting to be sure everything was going well. We did have a problem with the screen door sticking badly. I sent an email to let them know so it could be fixed before the next renters arrived, never expecting that it would be handled while we were there. Within a couple of hours a repairman was at our door and the problem resolved. WOW! The condo is decorated in island style with wonderful artwork throughout.

Oh! Want a hamburger? Eat at Annie’s Burgers. Da Poke Shack across the street from the condo is very good but expensive. Try the poke at Pak and Save/Foodland. Just as good and less expensive.

Activities that were my favorite: Ride the Rim on ATVs for a tour of Waipi’o Valley. Awesome views and the history of the valley is amazing. We also Flumed the Ditch, in Hawi, Which was dug and chiseled out by hand by Japanese workers in the 1800’s. Easy kayak ride down the ditch through the flumes and wonderful scenery. Ask for team “a” to be your guides. A very fun, knowledgeable group of young men who grew up together in the area.

Stunning property

  • 5 of 5

This really is a gem of a condo. Gorgeous views of sunsets from the patio, and so nicely appointed, there was literally everything you could possibly need. The bed is really comfortable, I don't remember the last time I slept so well. Truly a convenient location, 25-30 minute walk to town, 25-30 minute walk to a great snorkeling beach. And the Ali'i trolley stops right outside your door! Mike and Teresa are excellent hosts and really want you to enjoy your vacation, so they provide you with everything you need to do so! We are already looking forward to our next visit to BI!

The condo was awesome. Very nicely decorated and equipped with all the amenities you would ever need while on a beach vacation. The place was very clean and very comfortable. The place was right across the ocean with stunning views of the sunset right from the porch. My husband and I enjoyed every moment in this condo and we will definitely stay here when we come back to Kona. Our special thanks to the owners, they were very responsive and made sure our stay was excellent. :)
