About the owner: Aloha Pumehana, (warm welcome) Our names are Sandra and Ken. We are both originally from California, i, Sandra, came to visit Kona in 1970 and liked it so much I made this my home and didn't look back. Living on different parts of this Island, Maui and Kauai, I can truly say that The Great Kona Escape is in the BEST location on the Islands for kicking back and enjoying the perfect climate or visiting the many activities Kona has to offer. Now that I am semi-retired, I have more time to devote to making sure that your stay in Kona is all you dreamed it would be. I'm a medically trained Massage Therapist and can help you relax into Island mode - give you directions to just about anywhere - good advice for dining and activities, and assure your comfort and privacy at all times. You'll love it here.
Why the Owner Chose Kailua-Kona, HI, USA:
The Great Kona Escape is at 900 foot elevation where the trade winds offer a gentle breeze to keep the warm days at a perfect temperature.

We are on one acre of beautiful flowers, herbs, a vegetable garden and fruit trees, all this and great ocean views as well.
