About Khammoui Louangrath

I came to Hawaii from Rapid City, SD in 1994 to teach. I have families in Kansas, South Dakota, Oregon, Washington State, New Mexico, Virginia, North Carolina and Arizona. My husband and I bought this unit because of the closeness to everything and of course, the best oceanfront pool on Alii Drive. We furnished the unit with high end solid wood furnishings for your comfort.

Khammoui Louangrath purchased this condo in 2013

Why Khammoui Louangrath chose Kona Coast

We bought this property because of the pretty partial ocean view from lanai/porch of the unit, Oceanfront Pool and it is right on Alii Drive where You can easily walk to beaches, shopping, all tourist attractions are within 30 minutes away-less if you are a fast walker. The nice partial ocean view from the unit and oceanfront pool makes this the perfect place to spend your time in Hawaii. This complex has a combination of owners living in their units to long term monthly renters to short term vacation rental. You will meet many nice people with many Aloha during your stay. We have guests that keep coming back every year because they have made good friends here. The only thing we would change with this condo is the exterior brown trim on the building because it makes the building looks dated. The paint are less than ten years old and will not change for awhile. I have made recommendation to the board to change the color of the trim the next time the building gets painted.

What makes this condo unique

Very clean compare to staying at a hotel. Carpet and sofas are cleaned annually with spot cleaning as needed throughout the year to keep it clean and fresh for our guests. High end quality furnishings with 55' Samsung T.V. You will not be disappointed with the quality we put into this unit. Book today and see for yourself why we own the best unit in the complex. No cleaning fee because I do the cleaning myself and No Damage Insurance or Deposit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Not really a partial ocean view

  • 3 of 5

The condo is lovely, but I only gave it three stars because the partial ocean view is just not there. I only stayed one night and it was in a very convenient place, close to restaurants and stores. Everything is beautifully done inside, but the view is of the parking lot.

Awesome studio in the heart of Kona!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Kona was perfect! This studio was cozy and very comfortable. The whole process from beginning to end was so easy. Khammoui was super responsive, made the booking process simple, and the check in process even easier. The unit was clean and was as described in the VRBO description and photos. My girlfriend and I loved staying here and would recommend to our friends and potentially another stay in the future! Khammoui provided shower towels, toiletries, and even beach towels. Also, the AC was very cool throughout the night. Awesome stay and host even though we didn't meet in person!

Wonderful People

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay. The place was plenty spacious, and you can never beat the views of Hawaii. We had made an error when booking and thought we had booked for seven days, but in reality we only booked for six. My phone was off that entire day, so it was impossible to get up with me. Also, we arrived rather late that night. By the time we got back, another renter was in the room. But thankfully, Khammoui had taken care of us. She protected our belongings and helped us get into another place to stay for the night before our trip back home. So, on top of the beautiful place to stay, Kevin and Khammoui (owners of the rental), are really wonderful folks. Kind and understanding, I looked over to see her comforting my wife during our time of turmoil. The memory of that hug by a stranger who cared about our situation so very far from home will stay with me for the rest of my life. So a wonderful place, for a wonderful price, with wonderful ownership -- How can you go wrong!!

Owner's Response: We were really worried that something bad happened to them when we emailed, texted and left voicemail without a reply back. When they called around 9:30pm, we were glad they were safe. With the help of our guests checking in that day, we were able to gather their belongs for safe keeping so the next guest could check in a clean place. It all worked out with them able to find another place for the night.

If you enjoy walking, you can stroll to Alii Drive Farmer's Market for fresh local fruits, vegetables, sourvenier, restaurants, beaches, tourist activities, snorkeling, cloud forest to see parrots is only 10 minutes drive away.

We do our best to keep pests like ants and cockroaches out of the condo. With inspection and pest control twice a year as well as when it is needed, they do come in with fruits and vegetables you purchase and when you come back from beaches. They are great hitchhikers.
