Every Morning is magic in Kona for me! I can’t imagine life elsewhere. Grabbing a mug of hot Kona coffee is great! My day starts, and this steamy mug of Kona’s best doesn’t compare to grabbing my stand-up paddle board as the morning light is halfway dawning. No morning is the same as the last.

My good friends, Robin and Kim, have an oceanfront home at Kahaluu and it’s off to my right as I paddle out into the bay. Vacation renters are there…I see a light in the kitchen. No one else seems to be up this early. It’s pristine and I never can figure out how in the half light of dawn the reef underwater beneath my board has more light than the atmosphere around me.
The fish are all visible – yellow tang, angle fish, and puffer fish too. The manta ray is over there…I see her wing tips and mosey over for a better look. The black and white pattern on her back is a mind blower – I am cautious when my eyes see that long tail behind her! The finishing touch is the whale 800 yards off! What a show! I am pinching myself… is this for real?? And it was this morning! Unlike any other, every morning in Kona is magical.

I spend a hour or two nearly every morning like this and then head to work selling Kailua-Kona real estate. The oceanfront home owners see my regular routine – often they’re in the water with me! I have the joy of marketing and selling the most incredible oceanfront and nearly oceanfront properties in Kona. Through the years I’ve been blessed to know many owners and understand the idiosyncrasies of these very special properties. And it is what I love to do more than anything.
I see Gloria jogging by and mention a showing today at her Vintage Cottage next to Magic Sands beach. That listing is so close to my house, I’ll probably ride my beach cruiser down for the showing. Lucky I live Hawai’i!
