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 Kona Coast

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.

This house is well loved

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed there for almost two weeks with a total of 8 adults and two toddlers for a few days before dropping to 4 adults. Sleeps 10? There is little chance an adult would have accepted the pads the toddlers slept on. The AC was wonderful in the two bedrooms with them while the rest of the house had fans most everywhere. Wished for AC throughout. The beautiful pool was our salvation. The group handled meals easily with the kitchen setup.

The house in general is a bit tired, ergo the well loved comment.

Hidden Gem

  • 4 of 5

We just had our family vacation here. We were a family of 5, 4 adults and a teenager. The house was beautiful. It was clean and pretty well stocked. There is a/c in 2 of the rooms, which was nice. And for the rooms that don't have a/c there are plenty of fans around the house. It more than fit our family. The view was absolutely stunning. The cove behind the house was amazing and had so many fish and turtles. Having the shopping center literally right around the corner was perfect. Shopping and beaches 15 min away. And when we didn't want to go out we had our own personal pool and hot tub. I would definitely come back. Thank you Sandra for all your hospitality.

A lovely vacation spot!

  • 4 of 5

This house has a beautiful view of the bay! The lanai is very comfortable and we ate all of our meals out there when we were home. We cooked breakfasts and dinners each day of our 6 days there. We were 5 adults travelling with a 2 year old, 4 year old, 5 year old and a 6 year old. The house was spacious enough to give us all a nice common area and also private space. The master has a glorious bathroom and a beautiful view of the bay plus enough floor space to put some children on the floor on the 2 nice trifold sleeping pads in the house. There are some very nice folding chairs that we used around the table on the lanai as we needed space for 9 instead of 6. The pool was amazing and we swam in it daily after our day's activity. The many sand toys and pool toys plus snorkeling gear and boogie boards were used a lot! Our 5 and 6 year olds learned to snorkel in the pool and were able to put their newly learned skills to use at Kahalu'u Beach Park just a mile down the road. It is an awesome snorkeling place with amazing tide pools where there is an abundance of fish and sea turtles. If you want more of a traditional white sand beach, Magic Sands is just down the road. The location of the house is great! The neighborhood is quiet and safe. There is a path right outside that leads down to the water. We didn't enter the water there as it is rocky and we had small children, but we all enjoyed walking down there. At night you can see the boats gather with the lights on the water as people swim with Manta Rays. The master bedroom and downstairs double twin bedroom have air conditioning, but the rest of the house does not. The queen suite area downstairs has two big floor fans and an overhead fan in each room which our daughter in law said kept the rooms quite comfortable for sleeping at night for her and her children. The living room and kitchen got pretty hot even with the overhead fans on, but we spent a lot of time on the lanai where the ocean breeze kept the temperatures pretty nice. The house had a Pack N Play for our 2 year old to sleep in, so we were delighted we didn't have to rent one! Sandra, the property manager, was just wonderful! Before our trip she answered my e-mailed questions within minutes of my having sent the emails. When we needed something at the house, she was immediately there with it and wanted to accommodate our every need! The pricing on this place is wonderful!

A Wonderful Family Vacation in Kailua-Kona

  • 4 of 5

The house was near perfect for our family of 6 adults and 2 children. The bed in the Master was comfy and there were no complaints from the others! House had everything we could need for travels to the many snorkel spots nearby and fun for the little ones (7 and 20 mos.) in the pool. The house did get a little warm at times with some warmer than usual weather, but being from Florida nothing we couldn't handle with the fans and open doors. Sandra was very helpful and was there when we arrived and her companion gave my fish loving husband lots of info. for good snorkel spots and fish markets. We wouldn't hesitate to use this spot again on the "Big Island" and have already recommended it to friends planning a trip there. Thanks for a wonderful big family celebration of our 35th!
