About Sandra

I am a long time resident of Hawaii, a Pediatrician, with a love for the tropics, Paddling and all that Hawaii has to offer. I moved to Connecticut so my girls could go to better schools and I hope to retire in Kona some day in my empty nest years.

Sandra purchased this house in 1988

Why Sandra chose Kailua-Kona

This property is ideally suited for living a Tropical Lifestyle as well as being close to medical facilities, fine restaurants, shopping and lots of water activities. From here you can take long beautiful walks by the water, walk to a Farmers Market, to the movies or to go Golfing.

What makes this house unique

As soon as you walk through the front door you will see why I fell in love with this house. The ocean breeze, the warm balmy nights, the proximity to fun, food and frolicking all caught my fancy and I had to buy it. This was 25 years ago .... you might say, it's a keeper.

Perfect location on the Big Island for a family

  • 5 of 5

I turned 60 this January and wanted to spend it with my family and friends. During the three weeks at this home we had guests coming and going. Some nights we were as many as 8 adults. We all had our own space, not for a minute did we feel crowded.

Everything about this house was great. From the first night, which I spent under the stars in the perfectly-warmed hot tub to the very last day in which we spotted a whale from the house as we ate breakfast on the lanai .

The kitchen is very well stocked with all kinds of equipment. From a wok, to a blender, so you can make frozen drinks at night. The master bedroom had a walk in shower, a whirlpool tub, plenty of closet space and the bed was very comfortable. The downstairs was perfect for additional guests. More than enough space for everyone.

The back yard is a 2 minute walk gorgeous black lava beach and crashing wave.The location is perfect, within walking distance to stores, restaurants and pharmacy.

There is a gorgeous black sand beach a mile away and it is a simple drive into town. I felt like I found my Big Island home.

I spent three full weeks here and enjoyed every minute of it. And look forward to returning.

Property was very exotic and the view was something out of a travel magazine

  • 5 of 5

The view of the ocean was breath taking and the accommodations were spacious and comfortable. We especially enjoyed the large Lanii that accommodated all the families for relaxing, eating, an viewing. The bedrooms and bathrooms were more than adequate for all our family members. We give the owner and the property a 10: excellent.

A lot of good with a little updating needed

  • 3 of 5

We just came back from an 10 day stay at this house. The outdoor space here is excellent. We enjoyed every morning and every evening on the large upstairs lanai. Lots of seating and a nice table to eat at while you watch the sunset. The kitchen is updated and well equipped. There is also a good size BBQ just adjacent to the pool which was nice to have when we were eating in. All the appliances in the house were good quality and in good working order. The upstairs bedroom is updated with lots of closet space and a large clean/updated bathroom. We give the upstairs a 4.5 star rating.

The downstairs part of the house needs quite a bit of updating. We would rate this a 2 star in comparison to other properties we have stayed at. This is the reason overall we gave the property a total 3 star rating. The basement is spacious and has a separate room for laundry and a bathroom. The bathroom sink area is nice however the bath/shower needs replacing. We have given the manager our feedback and they mentioned they would be making some updates soon. The basement windows let in a lot of fly's and gecko's which leads to a lot of cleanup every morning - the manager mentioned these would be changed in the near future. The upstairs sleeps 2 in the master and the basement has a queen and two singles. There is a futon downstairs but it isn't really in a "bedroom" ~ it is situated in the open area downstairs - ok for little kids I suppose if you needed the extra bed. Pool was nice to have for days when you are hanging around the house. There are lounge chairs and a nice little table and chairs set around the pool with an umbrella.

The ocean view is gorgeous and the small black rock beach next to the house is a great place for snorkeling. The neighborhood felt safe and not overly busy with traffic. The mall up the road was nice for quick grocery trips. The home managers were quick to address any issues while we were onsite by just sending them an email. Overall it was a nice stay and the location was a great place to come back to for relaxation time.
