Perfect ocean-view condo on Big Island, Hawaii

Our home is situated in lovely Kona on the Big Island approximately 12 miles from the Kona Airport. Our home is part of a private gated community of one-level townhouses overlooking Keauhou Bay. Our large lanai and most rooms offer sit-down views of the ocean. The grounds are stunning with a pool, spa, entertainment area with barbecue, and tennis court. My husband and I are retired teachers who moved here from San Clemente, CA, five years ago. We have done exchanges in Australia, Wales, France, Switzerland and Italy. We live here year round and can exchange anytime, but we must do mostly simultaneous exchanges since this is our only home. We can also exchange our 2012 automatic Subaru Outback with air conditioning. We hope you will want to come and enjoy our bit of paradise.

About Our Family

Steve and I first exchanged through INTERVAC in 1991! Since then, we have exchanged homes several times. Now that we have retired, we are enjoying the exchange experience even more. We moved to Kona, Hawaii, from San Clemente, CA, three years ago and are loving the aloha spirit here. We hope you will want to visit our lovely island home!
