Why Candace Remington Spinali chose Kona Coast

After exploring the Hawaiian Islands we narrowed our search for a vacation home to the Big Island. It took us three years of looking to finally find our getaway.(And several months of construction once we did find it!) Our 'had to have list' was extensive. We knew what we wanted because we had vacationed in so many other vacation homes. We had to be on the ocean ( we had to be able to view sunsets, surfers, and whales from the unit!), the lanai had to be private(no fishbowl) we had to have two bedrooms ...the master had to have a king sized pillowtop bed and the guest room had to be able to have two full beds ( our oldest son is 6'4' and still growing!) We love our sanctuary! The sound of the waves, the view from almost every room, the 40' wall of glass to let the view in, the pool is fantastic, and the local people are beautiful! We love Kona and look forward to returning everytime we go...and then we hate to leave and we always plan our next visit before we even get on the plane to leave! It truly is paradise...it's the perfect place to unwind and escape from everyday busy life! It is a magical place and we love sharing our island home with families from all over the world!

What makes this condo unique

Our Kona Oceanfront vacation getaway is located close to everything, and so peaceful with the sound of the waves to lull you to sleep every night. It is close to everything yet a world away surrounded by lush vegetation and the serenity of the waves rolling in to the beautiful Kona Coast shoreline.

Perfect in every way!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple spent ten days at this condo. It was perfect. It was so comfortable for the 4 of us and there was space for privacy when we needed it. The property was just as described and had everything we needed for our time in Kona-Kailua. We cooked several meals here and it had everything we could possibly need. It was clean, the grounds were pristine and the pool was great. I've already recommended this place to friends and we will return here on our next trip to Kona. We watched spinner dolphins and sea turtles everyday from our lanai. Like Candace indicated for her, the lanai was our "happy place" as well. The property is close to town but heading south a mile or two is a fantastic local park where the snorkeling and coral formations are spectacular. We couldn't have enjoyed this place more or recommend it more highly. This is an amazing place! A+++

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your awesome review! It warms my heart to hear that you enjoyed the "Happy Place" (The Lanai) The views are breathtaking! It hooks you from the time you enter the condo and makes you never want to leave. But I am happy to hear that you enjoyed the snorkeling and the beaches located so close to the condo. Remember, the " happy place" is always ready to welcome you back! Mahalo nui loa, Candace

Absolute Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

First, let me say the ocean view from this condo is absolutely breathtaking beyond words. Everything about this unit is exactly as the owner described, and it is exactly what my husband and I anticipated...and more! The unit is beautifully decorated with comfortable, high end furnishings throughout. What you see in the photos really is what you get, and more. The kitchen is fully equiped and well adorned with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances...and the ocean view again from here is awesome! Our son is 14 and loved his own room which was also tastefully decorated and comfortable. He was happy with the Wi-Fi and never turned on the TV. The Master bed was comfortable and the gentle roar of the ocean was like a soothing lulliby every night we were there. In addition, the owners had a nice selection of water toys; boogie boards, snorkle gear, an Umbrella, beach chairs and mats, and a cooler that we used to pack lunch and drinks while we were traveling around the island. The unit is quiet and close to everything. We used the pool and the hot tub every day and the grounds were clean and well maintained including new grass and a very nice new rock wall that was recently replaced. Everything about this condo was perfect for us. We stayed for two weeks and it wasn't long enough..We are now planning another trip to The Big Island for three weeks and there is no need to look any further...this is definately the place to stay. Mahalo Candace!

Second Stay, Still Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second stay, almost 3 weeks at the same condo. It is still paradise for our family of three. The view and relaxing roar of the Pacific Ocean is amazing. We spent every morning and evening watching the local surfers, spinner dolphins, and turtles sunbathing on the rocks. Whether you are cooking, dining, watching TV, or resting in the Master Bedroom, the soothing sounds of the crashing waves and the views are outstanding. This unit is properly described with high end furnishings and appliances, granite countertops, and comfortable bedding in both bedrooms. There are nice Tommy Bahama Beach Chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, mats, and coolers that come in handy for beach days or packing lunches while on road trips around the island. We took lots of road trips to The Coffee Shack, The City of Refuge, South Point, The Painted Church, Black Sand Beach,The Volcano, Hilo, Rainbow Falls, Akaka Falls, Botanical Gardens, Waimea, Waipio Valley, Hapuna Beach, and more..the coolers are a must for lunches on these trips! The pool, hot tub, and grounds are clean, well maintained, and quiet, again with the incredible ocean view! In addition, our friends stayed at the owner's other unit during the same time, so we visited them often...and let me tell you, that unit is also over the top gorgeous with high end everything! We are now planning our third trip...the owner, Candace, is a pleasure to work with and she checked in a few times to make sure all was going well on our vacation. We are now planning our third trip to Kona in two years, same place, same perfect piece of paradise......Mahalo Candace!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write your wonderful review! I am so happy that you enjoyed stay number two and that while you were still staying in Banyan Tree 204, you were planning stay number three! The view is definitely a sit down (from most major rooms) jaw dropping, you almost feel like you are on boat (yes that close!) view! I love that you enjoyed the sound of the ocean, the view, the surfers, dolphins, turtles, fish, and if you were here in season you would actually see whales! (Maybe trip #3??) The Big Island offers so much to see and do and it sounds like you saw most of the island! I love that you had a wonderful family vacation and I look forward to your return! Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Best View On The Island

  • 5 of 5

Believe it or not the view is even better than the pictures.

We saw a lot of beautiful places during our 9 stay on the Big Island, but nothing beat the view and sunsets from our lanai at Banyan Tree 204.

If you are looking for a quiet condo that is close to everything this location is hard to beat. It is close to the all of the shopping and restaurants in Kona, several grocery stores and some amazing beaches.

We would definitely consider staying here again if we make it back to the Big Island.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking time to write your review! Yes, the views are unbelievable. The lanai is everyone's "Happy Place!" It is so tempting once you arrive to gravitate to the lanai and never leave during your stay! The bar height chairs and tables ,so you are not viewing the ocean through bars, make sure that there are no obstructions between you and that view. You can see whales during season, dolphins, turtles, tropical fish, sunsets, and surfers all from the condo! Amazing location with a view that is jaw dropping fantastic! We hope to have you back so that you can spend more time on "The Happy Place." Mahalo Nui Loa, Candace

Loved the surf, the surfers, the turtles and the Dolphins that we saw morning and evenings from the wonderful lanai. Everything that you need is provided in this wonderful condominium plus did I mention the sunsets. The owners were responsive and easy to work with. The pool and grounds were well cared for plus the barbecues. We really enjoyed the pool area when taking a break from the snorkelling in the area..... This condo is close to everything but not in the busiest part of the tourist area which was perfect.... The ocean is 20 feet from the lanai I plus the floor to ceiling wall of windows meant that you always had a view whether you were in the kitchen living room, dining room, or master bedroom.. The beds and sheets were extremely comfortable. Had a wonderful trip and we will definitely be coming back, hopefully to this beautiful condo.. Mahalo Candace

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your review! I am so glad you enjoyed my island sanctuary. Everything just slows down here and it becomes all about watching the sunrise, the surfers, and the beautiful sunsets right from the lanai. The wall of windows make that sofa in the living room like having 50 yard line , front row seats to a football game! The view to this day makes my jaw drop and takes my breath away. Thank you so much for choosing Hula Girl Vacation Rentals for your stay while vacationing on the Big Island. We hope to have you back! Mahalo nui loa, Candace

Gorgeous oceanfront location, perfect in every way

  • 5 of 5

This was our second time to the Big Island and we were looking for a quiet place and relaxing location, but that was also close to everything, beach, pool, shopping, restaurants, and outdoor activities. We found it, and it was perfect! We watched surfers and whales every morning while having breakfast on our veranda that was literally less than 100 feet from crashing waves! The condo was very tastefully decorated with all the amenities and perks. We could have easily stayed a month or longer. We will definitely be back. Candace was wonderful to deal with booking our stay. We had not one problem, or negative thing to say about our experience. We highly recommend it! Stayed January 2014

It warms my heart and makes me smile to know that you also love that view and the sound of the crashing waves. I look forward to your return!
