About Judy Prather

Property is co-owned by two retired teachers, a wife retired with a law enforcement background and the other from a bookkeeping background. We love to please and welcome back repeat vacationers.

Judy Prather purchased this condo in 1999

Why Judy Prather chose Kailua-Kona

We had visited the other islands for a few years and loved them all. Once we visited the Big Island, we loved the diversity of the island. The Big Island is true 'OLD HAWAII'.

What makes this condo unique

We strive to constantly update our condo to make your stay pleasant. Cleanliness is very important to us. We have both view sitting with a table and low padded chairs on our lanai for your comfort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Just a note to let you know that we enjoyed the two weeks in your Kona condo very much. The weather was ideal with a few days overcast but no rain. The pulldown screen on the lanai came in handy. Your kitchen is well stocked with cooking supplies. We will certainly look forward to returning in the future.

Thank you,
Nov 2012

''This place is perfect . Has everything you need and within walking distance to town. Real homey condo. Real comfortable for two people.

We never met the owner Judy but she is always available and will help with anything. I feel like she is a member of the family.

Will surely stay here again if available when we return.

Enjoyed Our Stay. February 24/March 1, 2018

  • 4 of 5

The condo was furnished nicely. Can't think of anything else we needed. King size bed was comfortable and appreciated. Location was good and loved that we had a little Ocean View from the condo. Had a relaxing time sitting on the patio reading and looking at the Ocean.

Enjoyed the pool area that was right on the Ocean! We sat out there and read and watched

and listened to the waves, so soothing and relaxing. The location is handy to shopping and most anything you would want to do in the Kona area. A couple things we would have liked

would have been a washer & dryer in the unit, even though the laundry room was close by.

A couple of gas barbecues would be nice and the refrigerator doors opening the other way

would be much handier for loading and unloading food. That being said, we had a great

time at the condo! Would recommend the condo to family and friends.

Owner's Response: Aloha Lorraine. So glad you enjoyed your stay! We appreciate any and all referrals. To address the issues you mentioned, the unit is too small for a washer and dryer. The laundry facility is right around the corner from our unit. Regarding the fridge door handle, one day we will re-design the cabinets and the fridge door will be a bit more convenient. We have it the way it is now because we probably would have a hole in the wall from people who may not be careful when opening it. If you noticed, there is not room to have it the other way. Also, at one time the association did have a gas BBQ as well as the charcoal one, but it was taken out by the association because of misuse. Most people love the charcoal bbq so they can sit in the area provided to watch the beautiful view of the pool and ocean. That is a very relaxing spot. We hope to hear from you again. Have a wonderful Spring in Alaska. Judy

Very clean, with lots of extras especially the beach chairs and umbrella. Liked to go to the beach everyday to watch for whales and dolphins.

Great place to stay

  • 4 of 5

We loved staying in this condo. It was very clean and well equipped with a comfortable bed. We were pleased to find that even thought the building is on a busy street the condo is towards the back and very serene and quiet. Small view of the ocean that was nice, short walk to the pool and oceanfront. Judy was extremely helpful with prompt response to every question. It is close to all the hub-bub in Kailuea Kona while being a quiet retreat.

So cozy

  • 5 of 5

This wonderful little condo exceeded our expectations. It is a lovely, cozy place with all the amenities a person could want. The list of things we appreciated is long, but I will name just a few. Everything was clean, tidy and attractively decorated. The bathroom is spacious, the bed is comfortable, and the lanai has some ocean views. There are beach towels, beach chairs, and a cooler for use. There is a convenient laundry area right next door. The condo location is very near Kona, the town area.The owner was very pleasant and easy to deal with. We really enjoyed our stay there.

Nice to have a very comfy king size bed also....we would definitely stay here again, and I'm recommending it to friends who love to travel the Big Island!
