Randy and Shannon’s Big Island Retreat


Last week I was asked to photograph a new Bed&Breakfast by Kahalu’u beach in Kona.

The owners, Randy And Shannon Hagel have moved to Kona from Canada to claim their own slice of paradise, and give others the opportunity to enjoy their dream of a Hawaiian retreat.

Nestled at the end of a private road, away from traffic in a central yet secluded environment, the Hagels set up a gorgeous B&B on a lot of about 1 acre. Each room is presented with a different palette of colors and style, all very welcoming and with a very clean and homy atmosphere. Randy and Shannon live on the top floor of this 3 story complex and are there to make sure all the guests have everything they need while the on-site manager – Gigi, takes care of day to day operations.

All rooms have a kitchenette, flat screen TV, a breezy lanai, and there is a common barbecue area for entertaining and get togethers.

I wish the Hagels great success in fulfilling their dream and sharing it with others.
