About the Hawaiian Oasis Inn

You’re Invited to Join Us in Paradise

The Hawaiian Oasis has been one of Kona's most popular
Bed & Breakfast Inns since first opening in the 1990s.

After some wonderful improvements to the suites and the grounds, In
2009 we re-opened as one of the FINEST Inns in the Hawaiian Islands.

We are located above the historic coastal town of Kailua-Kona and below the cool mist of Kona coffee country and the artist’s village of Holualoa. At the end of another day in paradise, you will be happy to retreat to the serenity of the Hawaiian Oasis.

Your Kona Bed and Breakfast Hosts
We love sharing our Aloha!

Darla and Peter have owned and operated the Hawaiian Oasis since 2005 with the help of family and friends. They love sharing their little piece of paradise with guests at the Oasis.

“After several trips to the other island, we first visited Kona in 2002, and the Big Island definitely hooked us! We fell in love with the property as soon as we saw it...(the Oasis has a way of doing that to people!) This is one of the most serene and peaceful places that we have ever laid our heads and let the cares of the "other" world disappear.

As the morning sun rises over the Hualalai summit, the air around the Oasis is filled with birdsong, and one can't help but awaken with a smile and sense of awe. After many years of ownership, it is still as magical as the first day we found this gem.

Meet Our New Inkeepers, Nina & Tom McDonald

Nina comes to the Hawaiian Oasis from the Midwest, via Europe and California. Even as a young girl, she dreamed of one day living in the Hawaiian Islands. She distinctly remembers seeing a National Geographic article at the age of 5, and the picture of a beach-side, thatched-roof, open-air hale noho (traditional Hawaiian family home), which fascinated her. She wondered what it would be like to live in a place that was so warm one didn’t need walls --and was so filled with flowers, it seemed like Eden. To be able to live so close to the ocean, you could see the surf. She also thought: “When I get married, I want to be married outside in a garden, in a place like Hawaii…..”
In August of 1981, after attending Illinois State University (majoring in Graphic Design), Nina moved
to Coronado, California where she worked as a nanny, personal chef, and lifeguard, and generally
tried to decide what she really wanted to do when she grew up.
Tom, was born in Bethesda, Maryland, and moved to Southern California as a young boy. He grew
up in Orange County and attended Tustin High School. After graduating from the Naval Academy
with a degree in Engineering, in 1979, while he was going through Naval helicopter training in
Coronado, California, Tom received orders to Naval Air Station Barbers Point , in Oahu. Pursuing his love for the sea, Tom decided to voyage to Hawaii on a bare-bones (i.e. no engine or GPS) sailboat; a 35’ trimaran .
On November 1, 1981, equipped with only a sextant, Navy charts, his Naval Academy training, and
a crew of three (un-trained) volunteers, Tom set sail out of San Diego harbor and navigated his way
across the Pacific (during hurricane season), making landfall December 4th, in Waikiki Yacht Club
(only a week or so later than his projected arrival time). This adventure inspired his commanding
officer to dub him “ Thor ” (after the legendary Norwegian explorer Thor Hyerdahl) , christening Tom
with his aviator “ call sign ”. (There’s much more to the story than space allows for here--and Tom and Nina would love to share it with you during your stay at the Oasis.)
Nina and Tom were introduced in Coronado through a mutual friend, shortly before Tom left for
Hawaii. He invited her to join him on his sea-tour. However, as nice as he seemed, she felt that at
the time, she wasn’t quite ready for such a trip. Little did she know that within 3 years, she would be
joining him on a much greater adventure….
In September of 1982, Nina accepted an invitation to visit Hawaii from that same mutual friend
….who, now, also happened to be Tom’s housemate….
On March 31, 1984 Tom and Nina were married in the flower-filled garden of Waimea Falls Park on
Oahu’s North Shore. They moved into Navy housing on Ewa Beach--just steps from the surf. And--in
what seems like a bit of a prophetic omen--they honeymooned on the Big Island, staying in Kona.
Since then, they have returned to visit Hawaii many times, while traveling the world together,
acquiring a wide variety of skills and experiences. Based primarily in San Diego, they also lived for
two years in Japan. After retiring from the Navy, Tom began a second career in Information
Technology. Besides being a stay-home mom and Navy wife, Nina also spent several years as a
journalist in the San Diego area, and continues to work on various writing projects. Nina brings a
life-long love for cooking and entertaining with her to the Oasis. Ask them about their backgrounds in hospitality, catering, small business ownership...and sailing (...specifically, around Oahu on a 16’
Hobie-cat, among other adventures !). They are also the proud parents of 5 adult children and one
grandchild (and one on the way!).
As life-long lovers of all things Hawaii, Tom and Nina consider themselves kama’aina’s .
K ama’aina ( "kah-mah-AYE-nah") - is a Hawaiian word basically meaning local--or “oldtimer”. (A
new-comer is called “ malahini ”) It can also mean: someone who considers themselves part of the
land and sea of Hawaii--even though they may not have actually been born there. For someone who
is kama’aina , Hawaii will always be “home.” To be kama’aina is to have a Hawaiian state of mind,
and to embody the spirit of “al oha” .
Tom and Nina’s natural warmth, helpfulness and hospitality bring the aloha to the Hawaiian Oasis.
We are delighted to have them as part of the our team. We are sure you will enjoy spending time
with them as much as we do--and that even though you may arrive a “malahini” ---you will leave us
as kama’aina-- forever calling Hawaii, and the Hawaiian Oasis ,’home.”
