Have you ever been to a place where your soul just says “ahhh”?
My friends, Kona is that place for us! We first visited Kona Hawaii after our youngest daughter, Brandi graduated high school. It was almost fate that brought us to this particular island. Brandi’s best friend since middle school, Lincoln Quinn Makanakai Shipman- Ahlo (or as I called him “Aloha”) was born there and lived on this beautiful island until age 5. He is the nicest, most genuine guy and his parents Maureen, a southern California girl and his father, Lincoln, a Kona native decided with us that this would be a grand way to celebrate our kid’s achievements!
Four of us, Brandi, her sister Danni, my husband Rusty and myself were in for an incredible trip. Little did we know, a few short years later we would be able to purchase a little piece of this paradise!
Through friends of Maureen and Lincoln we rented a condo at The Kona Reef. This was base camp for us. In the coming week we would visit many places including taking a round trip tour of the entire island! It was such a memorable vacation and extremely comfortable thanks to the Kona Reef!
