About Susan Scanlan

Susan & Tony purchased this condo in September 2013. After many visits to all the islands we knew the Big Island was the place for us and we visit often. Activities abound and the diversity of the Island offers endless opportunities for exploration. Tennis is our game and there is nowhere more beautiful to play than the courts at Mauna Kea. We also love to snorkel and have found the beaches on the north end of the Big Island to be the most beautiful in all of Hawaii with the best coral and variety of fish. We continue to find secret coves all over the North Kohala coast for easy snorkel access. We hope others will experience what we have found: a place to restore your spirits, ease your mind and delight your heart.

Why Susan Scanlan chose Kohala Coast

We have stayed at the condos at Kumulani many times and at the Hapuna Beach Hotel - they never disappoint! No matter where we travel, we always know our favorite place is the Beach at Mauna Kea.


Wonderful! 4.9/5 -

A fantastic place to stay

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 (including grandparents and 2 kids age 3 and 2) spent a wonderful week at the condo. The condo is clean, quiet, and nicely decorated. It has all the amenities we need for a week (well stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, beach toys for the kids, plenty of beach towels, etc). Although there are other buildings around, the complex is well designed that you do not have much of the view of the other houses. Instead you have a gorgeous view of the beach (albeit far) and the mountains. The complex is also well maintained.

The owner, Susan, is delightful to work with. She is helpful, accommodating, and quick to reply.

The location is convenient too. It is very close to the Mauna Kea beach and Hapuna beach. Foodland, where we did most of our grocery shopping, is about 15 minutes drive.

We highly recommend Susan's condo and will stay here again for our next visit.

Fantastic -- peaceful, well appointed, very comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and two kids (7 and 10) and I just returned from a week at Kumulani in this unit, and loved it. It's spacious and comfortable, with beautiful views of the ocean. It's also very peaceful and quiet; I don't think we saw a single other person in the four-unit complex the entire time we were there. Very ready access to Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea. The daily amenity fee of $65 charged by the hotel in order to use the pool and beach and other facilities adds up -- but we ended up saving a considerable amount of money overall. We had a couple of pricey but delicious hotel meals, including a fabulous brunch (and fruity alcoholic beverages by the pool every afternoon), but mostly bought our own food and cooked in the home, so it was a great combo: access to the hotels and the spectacular, world-class Hapuna Beach (where I spent a good part of my youth growing up in Hawai'i), along with the privacy and comfort of our own place. I'm certain we came out ahead when comparing the price of the hotel vs. the price of this unit. We found it very well-appointed, especially the kitchen. We were very comfortable there, and appreciated having a washer, dryer and full kitchen. There was ample room for all of our stuff: tons of storage space, a nice walk-in closet, and lots of dressers. Everything was nice and clean and well-kept. Excellent air conditioning; ceiling fans in every room; and a nice large wrap-around terrace on the ground floor. Communications with the owner Susan were really easy; she responded almost instantly to every query, and was warm, flexible and helpful at every turn. Mahalo nui loa Susan!!

Beautiful and functional. A delightful place to be for vacation

  • 5 of 5

Dear Susan,

It was such a lovely condo with views of the ocean and peaceful outlook onto green and native grasses as we sat at breakfast. The kitchen was so well set up with all the condiments as well as dishes, glassware, pots, pans, and utensils we needed. The bedrooms were very attractive and comfortable and bathrooms well provisioned with nice soaps, shampoos and hair dryers. The TV's were easy to use and it was comfortable to sit in the living room watching the Olympics when we were not down at the beach enjoying the wonderful swimming or visiting with friends and family. I would and will certainly highly recommend Kumulani I-2 to anyone interested in staying near the Mauna Kea and the Hapuna Beach Hotels with convenient access to both.

Thank you for a memorable stay.

We stayed at the property for 5 days and used the amenity package. The condo was well-appointed, clean, and comfortable. The Mauna Kea and Hapuna hotel access is a must...Best beaches on the island and great pools for the kids!
