Kona Coast Vacations is the result of a dream of its two hardworking founders, Lorrie and Chris, who saw the potential for a higher standard in vacation rentals. Where owners can be at ease knowing their property is being rented and maintained, while their guests can truly relax knowing we are always nearby to attend to the little things that make a big difference.
Through the magic of word of mouth, what started as a business managing four (4) properties has grown in eleven years to over 210 vacation properties and over 60 long term rental properties, with the majority of these condos, homes and estates located along the Kona Coast and Kohala Coast of Hawaii Island (Big Island). A third Partner, Ted was welcomed in 2011. Ted was introduced to the company by renting a property through Kona Coast Vacations.
Kona Coast Vacations is fortunate to team up with great property owners, which is instrumental in providing exceptional homes for our new and returning guests. The number of properties provides KCV with the luxury of being open seven days a week to take care of our guests as well as the ability to have specialists in reservations, inspections, maintenance, guest services, etc. This provides more experienced people providing quicker and more focused services compared to those companies that focus on selling , listing and some property management while being a master of none.
Whether orienting first-time visitors to the magic of the island, or giving special care to our off-island owners, our formula for success is so effective, we were nominated and placed in 2014, 2015, 2016 and 2017 for one of the fastest growing businesses in the State of Hawaii. In 2017, Kona Coast Vacations managed over 45,000 rented nights, completed over 4,200 reservations and welcomed approximately 20,000 guests to the Island of Hawaii (Big Island).
