Ginny is now a retired Nurse, having practiced in several specialties and taught Nursing at the College level for many years; 20 yrs at San Jose State Univ. (Professor) and Sonoma State Univ. She loves out-doors, back-packing, swimming, and since our Honeymoon (photo) snorkeling. Glen is a retired business executive of Pharmaceutical and more recently Biotechnology companies. He has a pharmacy degree and an MBA. Growing up he participated in several sports and later focused on water-skiing, snorkeling, and back-packing. Both of us were born in California--she in Oakland, he in Santa Cruz. We both attended college at UC Berkeley and UCSF. Glen got his MBA at Harvard. Our most favorite vacations are to Ginny's family cabin in Yosemite and our Hawaii properties. We live in a house that we completed building in 2000 on Glen's family mountain-top property in Soquel (Santa Cruz), CA
Glen purchased this Condo in 1998
Why Glen chose Kailua-Kona
Over the years Glen traveled to Hawaii many times, mainly Oahu, Maui, and Kauai. Ginny and Glen went to several Hawaii islands on their Honeymoon in 1985. (Picture is at Kona Village) We have owned a time-share in Waikiki, a lovely condo at Poipu Beach in Kauai, and several vacation and long-term condos on the Big Island. Our favorite place to visit became Hawaii for the sports (e.g. snorkeling), sites all over the island, variety of scenery, birds, and the fact that this island is not yet ruined by Tourism and population. We now own properties only in KONA.
What makes this Condo unique
We stayed at Kona Shores annually since 1985 (now over 30 years). We loved the PRIVACY of the North wing of this complex. In 1998 the lovely northwest, first floor, corner unit became available. Glen had seen it while helping a renter fix screens. We were lucky enough to buy this unit. We love the open feel of all the glass, the tropical gardens, the intimacy, a good partial ocean view and the very private location within the complex. (We are told that this special unit was built by the original contractor of Kona Shores for one of his relatives.)

Hi Glen and Ginny. We had a short stay this past trip. But still nice. Only at your condo 1 week. And 2 weeks down the road before we came to your place. We love that Lanai and the privacy there. After all this craziness is over. We will hopefully be back again. Shelley and Chris
Well equipped and located
Very well equipped unit; loved all the greenery around the lanai and the ocean view.
The kitchen was spotless and amazingly well equipped. Actually, the whole unit was outstanding in every way. Traffic in Kona outstrips the capacity of roads to handle its volume, but if you are on vacation, you shouldn't be in a hurry! Or just walk... it might be quicker.
We had a very enjoyable and relaxing two weeks. The condo is fabulous, especially the tropical garden. Everything went smoothly. Would definitely recommend this property.
Great location with lovely garden area. Loved the sunset view.
