About Blanca Brown

We are a San Diego Navy Retired Family that fell in love with the Big Island from the time of our first visit. Our plan is to move to the island full time in a couple of years. We appreciate comfort and relaxation so our condo has been completely remodeled to meet the most demanding needs for comfort and high quality living. We are extending an invitation to stay in our home to those looking for the same comfort and high quality living in an incredible natural island environment.

Blanca Brown purchased this condo in 2012

Why Blanca Brown chose Kona Coast

It's the perfect combination of unit amenities, quality interior features, decor and location for people who like to be active while still enjoying relaxing private resort living. Walking distance to Keauhou shopping center with a super market, full service drug store, fast food, movie theater, medical services and fine dining with a blue water view. There is a Farmers market every Saturday where you can buy great locally grown produce and delicious homemade food products. A short block to the popular Ali'i Drive will let you bike or cruise 6 miles of beach front viewing to Kailua Town.

What makes this condo unique

Walk down to Keauhou Bay for canoe paddling, kayak rentals, sightseeing or snorkel boat cruises, stand-up paddleboard, and deep sea fishing. Great bike riding or running on the new bypass road for those in training for Triathlon, or just casual jogging or biking.

Wonderful Condo and Owners

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many condos in Hawaii over the past years. This is by far our favorite. Blanca and Tim thought of everything to make their guests feel at home, from every kitchen tool you would ever need to an extremely comfy king sized bed. I could go on and on but there is not enough room. They did a wonderful job of remodeling the space as well. The condo was very clean and well maintained. The photos don't do justice to the condo. We loved staying here and Blanca and Tim were wonderful to work with. We will definitely be staying here again and would recommend this property highly.

Enjoyed Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

The accommodation was exactly as described with fairly recent renovation. The roomy condo had everything we needed and was very clean. The location was very quiet at all times and had parking only a few steps away. The pool was also nearby. We enjoyed the adjacent golf course view and birds while sitting on the lanai on days we were not sight-seeing. There was a local shopping area nearby with a good grocery store and a variety of restaurants. Overall great value and we plan to return next year.

The best EVER

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many Vrbo units in the past including here at Palena. This is the best you can find...stop looking. Furnished beautifully and a kitchen equipped for a professional chef. We couldn't be happier and we'be only been here a few hrs. Five weeks will not be long enough. Tim and Blanca are delightful to work with and Christine was wonderful and the unit spotless. Our friends in the other units are jealous and want it for next year! Thanks so much.

Nicely remodeled, great location

  • 5 of 5

Stop weeding through all those condos with the sad furniture, creepy bedspreads, and 25-year-old carpet! No sinking feeling of regret when you open the door to this one: Super clean and smartly remodeled, reflects the pride of the owners and manager. Responsive owners/manager, easy booking, good value.

We are a couple who stayed here with our college-age son. The bed by the front door might be odd for the group dynamics of some, but given how he lives at school, he had no complaints. The toilet/tub/vanity area in the Master Bath is tiny, but the showerhead had plenty pressure, so who cares. No TV in MBR if that matters to you. There is A/C in the MBR (only), but we never felt the need to turn it on. We think this unit and the complex BEST suits two adults, or a couple and one or two teenagers (if they can share a Queen and won't miss having a door to close).

(I won't go into describing the location and things to do, because...the internet. We travel to Hawaii often and The Big Island is our favorite. However, if you've never been to Hawaii before, please do your research: Don't be those people who get to Kona and complain that the beaches aren't like those on Maui)

The complex itself is comfortable in its "maturity", both in terms of the buildings, the clientele, and the lovely landscaping. A big bonus of this unit is that the parking space and the pool are just steps from the door. Many of the condos in Kona have tight and/or tricky parking situations, but the lot at this complex is worry-free.

Lots of thoughtful details, functional in every way. This condo is proof of what so many aging Kona vacation rentals could become. Let your dollars walk away from all owners who haven't updated anything this century, and reward those like Tim, Blanca and Chris, who put in the effort to stay clean and current!!

Great stay in Kailua-Kona!

  • 5 of 5

Easy to find, located in Keauhou Bay, this condo is beautifully furnished. We felt quite at home when we arrived. We got there to see a platter of fresh fruits and fresh flowers throughout as well as an anniversary gift waiting in the fridge! A very comfortable bed, nice fluffy towels and all kitchen needs were provided. Located on the golf course and next to the pool, we never did feel like there were bunches of people around us. Close to grocery and other stores, as well as a Saturday farmer's market. Beach chairs and towels are provided as well, which is great if you plan on being active during your stay. The washer/dryer and supplies were nice to have so we could wash clothes midweek. It was very helpful to have a book with local recommendations in it, if you hadn't pre-booked any excursions. Thank you so much for a great stay!

Owner's Response: Aloha Jennifer, Blanca and I are so pleased that you enjoyed your stay in Keauhou to celebrate your anniversary. Hawaii Island is a great place to visit for special occasions as well as vacation get-aways. We sincerely appreciate your notes regarding the amenities and conveniences we have made available in the condo. You got to experience why we enjoy that location so much! I will pass along your comments to your property host, my sister Christine, who personally set up your special Anniversary florals and gift. We hope you consider staying with us again in the future! Mahalo, Blanca and Tim
