About Nola Cocanougher

Nola and I (Daniel), grew up in a small town in Texas, and we still live there. I went to college at Rice University and have had many fascinating careers so far, with many more to go. Nola worked for 20 years in the travel industry, and first visited Hawaii while in college. She returned many times over the years & introduced me to the islands. We both fell in love with the Big Island and enjoy returning to it often because there is so much to see and do, but also love to simply relax in such a beautiful paradise!

Nola Cocanougher purchased this condo in 2015

Why Nola Cocanougher chose Island of Hawaiʻi

For the last 9 years we have been traveling to Hawaii, visiting all of the islands, but the last few visits we have focused just on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. The weather, the people, the food, the views, and the relatively fewer tourist compared to other islands, made this area very attractive. We feel the Big Island is the hidden gem, what with the Volcano, the Mauna Loa observatory, the world class beaches, plus rain forest and every imaginable terrain all in one place - PARADISE!

What makes this condo unique

The primary benefit to renting our condo is to play golf and stay in comfort in a very large beautiful resort condo. It is also a terrific place to call home away from home as you may travel throughout the island sightseeing and conducting adventure

The rental was great!

  • 5 of 5

One can see the ocean from the patio where we ate many meals watching the beautiful sunsets. The organization of the condo was spacious and great for a family or for friends traveling together. The kitchen had all the condiments one could request. The comfortable beds provided a good rest for a day at the beach which was a few miles away or for a swim in the pool at the condo area. We made awesome memories while there. We would love to go back for another trip.

Loved it!

LOVE LOVE LOVE this condo and location

  • 5 of 5

This home has it all.

There were 3 families that went together to stay in this condo. We all had our own huge comfortable master suites, with master bathrooms, yet several common areas to gather.

We timed each day so we were home on the patio to see and photograph the fabulous sunsets. The patio table became our meeting spot every morning for coffee, planning the beach of the day, and where we shared meals family style that we cooked on the Wolf grill. The kitchen was also outfitted with a wolf cooktop, oven, microwave and sub zero refrigerator. This condo is stocked for a chef, with every kind of cooking utensil anyone could want.

The condo came with coolers and beach chairs making it very easy to pack for a day at one of the beaches. There were 4-5 beaches right by the condo.

The pool area was a few steps from the condo so we could easily walk to the hot tub/pool area.

We are already planning our return visit and maybe taking a few more family members.

The owners were very helpful

Exceptionally high quality Hawaiian Condo

  • 5 of 5

I had the pleasure of staying in this remarkable condo starting November 23. My only regret is I could not stay longer. From the moment we arrived, we knew this was not an ordinary Condo. The spaciousness, the view, amenities, and privacy gave us a vacation we will not soon be able to top. Everything about the Condo was first class. There was the gourmet kitchen and utensils, the top of the line linens, the strong internet connection, and multiple TV's. The Condo is located behind a guarded hotel entrance and then behind it's own coded gate entrance. When we did not want to go to he beach we had access to hot tub and heated pool around the clubhouse. The lani gave us many mornings and evenings of restful beauty looking at the ocean. A huge plus was a gourmet grill on the lani that was just waiting to be used. Golf was very accessible with the pro shop just down the hill. Beautiful course and fun to play.

Amazing home with an amazing view!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had the pleasure of staying at this great condo-home! The location is perfect, excluded from the hustle and bustle of Kona but on the resort property for two hotels and close to one of the most beautiful beaches on Hawaii. The rooms are all large and the furniture comfortable. The two master suites have everything you expect in a master bedroom/bath including a walk-in shower in one of the master baths. The third bedroom is a good size and provided a great area for an "office" for us since we didn't have anyone staying in it. I loved the open family area and chef's kitchen! All the utensils, pots & pans, dishes, etc. are provided and enough for you to have an elegant dinner party inside or on the oversized lanai (patio).

The unit was clean and modern. I really don't think I would change anything. It was a perfect accommodation for a perfect vacation. I would stay here again, and again, and again! I left a part of my heart in the Big Island and when I come back for it I hope to stay here again.

Wonderful stay at this great, great location in Kona. Simply a very special location with outstanding amenities in a beautiful setting. The unit was pristine and layout was indeed very private. Clearly we would stay here again and highly recommend this beautiful condo to all, especially those individuals desiring to have a first class unit to experience.

Pacific tropical oasis

  • 4 of 5

My wife and I arrived for a 12 night stay with family members joining us for most of the time. We were congregating in Hawaii for our son's wedding, held near Hawi. The condo was terrific; we were greeted by a wide open (screened) living room overlooking the colourful and aromatic garden and the ocean beyond. The kitchen was outfitted very well with our two gourmet chefs wanting nothing in the way of utensils, bowls, bbq gear etc. The bedrooms and bathrooms were spacious and comfortable.

The infinity pool, shared by the Wai'ula'ula community was very close by (2 minute walk) and refreshing.

For groceries, I would go to Waimea and visit the Foodland. Very complete in offerings and cheaper than the much smaller Foodland in the Mauni Lani community. Fabulous fresh fish store (open 9 to 5 M-F and 9 to 1 Saturday) just off the highway to Hawi and past the Blue Dragon Restaurant...about 5 minutes away.

Resort package with the Mauna Kea and the Hapuna Beach Prince available but really only worth the extra money if you use the two beaches often and/or utilize the hotel expensive restaurants. We didn't for there are many other beaches, attractions and restaurants to enjoy which we did.

Owner's Response: Scott, Thank you for your kind words. I agree that many renters believe the Hotel Amenities package is necessary, but in reality you can golf, go to the Hotel Restaurants, and visit the public beaches without it. We are glad the kitchen is being used to create gourmet dishes. Please consider staying with us next year. Daniel Cocanougher

Golf Golf Golf, with beaches and sightseeing and great restaurants. The Hapuna Prince Golf Course is a great 18 hold course, and the Manua Kea Golf Course is a truly professional course with the best ocean views in the world.
