Property description

After an exacting six-month remodel, A301 has returned! We brought our kitchen and baths back to their framing and down to the slab, and then rebuilt to our ideal. These all-new, lavishly and thoughtfully appointed rooms complement our earlier upgrades to the bedrooms and living areas. Must-see photos at our website, Big Island Bliss!

Enjoy urban sophistication in a tropical setting from our top-floor, corner oceanview condo at Vista Waikoloa on the the Gold Coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. After a day of diving with the sea turtles off the Kona Coast, or sunning and snorkeling at Hapuna Beach or tidepooling at Puako, or playing 18 holes at the adjoining Robert Trent Jones, Jr. championship course, raise the perfect Mai Tai and share the magic as you savor the sunset from the large, wraparound lanai.

Inside, you'll experience a level of luxurious and harmonious design rarely found in vacation rentals. High-end integrated appliances in the kitchen, rich chocolate hardwood plank flooring and platform beds, down duvets and pillows, a stand-alone spoon tub and two rainshowers, two plasma HDTVs, and a gorgeous sound system all conspire to relax and indulge the guest.

The master suite has a king bed, the guest bedroom has a queen, and the sleeper sofa is full-size; all mattresses have memory-foam toppers. A floor plan (1602 square feet total, including 340 square feet exterior) with generous public spaces makes sharing good times easy--at the breakfast counter, at the formal dining table, chilling on the plush sectional sleeper or chaise in the living room or on the lanai's chaises or dining table.

The Vista Waikoloa has a serene three-lane pool with two spas, a barbecue pavilion, an onsite business office and workout room. The Vista is part of the Waikoloa Beach Resort and is across the drive from the Hilton Waikoloa. The beach at A-Bay and the restaurants of the King's and Queen's Shops are just a 10 minute walk away.

The Kohala Coast has the best weather on the island: with less than 10 inches of rain annually, the air is often calm in the morning, giving way to breezes in the evening as the cool descends from Mauna Kea.

An ideal spot for romance, retreat or recharging, please consider Vista Waikoloa A301. Our website, with over 30 photos of the unit and environs, is a great place to start: Big Island Bliss.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Your hosts (that's us on the right in the photo) live and work in Marin County. Judith grew up in Ireland and England, and thus has an unquenchable desire for sun and more sun. Brendan is from Boston and cannot imagine living any distance from the ocean. They met at Area in NYC in 1984. Their two daughters (photo, left) are as different as night and day, but share a great reverence for nature and a laudable desire to save the world. Abby (photo, center) is Jud's old roommate, Brendan's dive buddy and the girls' fairy godmother.

Why the Owner Chose Vista Waikoloa:
After a decade of structuring vacations around dive destinations, first in the Caribbean and Mexico, and then Maui, Kauai and Lanai, we found and fell in love with The Big Island's innocence, diversity and freshness. Considering the planning and expense that goes into a family vacation, we also wanted to assure ourselves of a place with reliably good weather, and Kohala answers all our needs. The Vista is a charter resort on Waikoloa Beach Drive, with a well-thought-out plan, gorgeous mature plantings and a singularly relaxed and unaffected air.
