Shores at Waikoloa condo description
On arrival you'll be greeted by our Big Island representative who will show you the suite and acquaint you with the unit and all its amenities.
We've purchased new living room furniture, including a comfy queen sleeper sofa and loveseat set, new end tables, and even new lamps! The 42-inch TV and DVD/Blu-Ray are brand new too. Two sets of sliding glass doors open from the living room to the wrap-around lanai with views to the north and west for watching those awesome Hawaiian sunsets! The lanai has seating for four around the glass-topped table, plus two chaise lounges and another table perfect for those late afternoon drinks.
The master suite features a king size bed, triple dresser, new lamps on the bedside tables, and brand new 32-inch HD TV. Mirrored sliding doors on the closet add dimension to the room, which looks out over a sea of lava toward the golf fairway. A palm leaf ceiling fan helps keep guests cool.
The master bathroom is roomy with two sinks, huge spa bathtub and separate, completely redone shower, and separate lavatory room to boot. There's also another closet with mirrored sliding doors to finish out the room.
The second bedroom is on the opposite side of the suite from the master bedroom and has a brand new queen bed, double dresser, 28-inch HD TV, and a large closet with mirrored sliding doors. The room opens directly to the lanai through sliding glass doors. The adjacent bathroom features a completely redone shower and separate spa tub.
The kitchen features many new appliances and utensils including a Black & Decker coffeemaker, Cuisinart blender, and Kitchen Aid 4-slice toaster. The kitchen is also equipped with a cook-top stove, microwave oven, traditional oven, and a large side-by-side fridge/freezer complete with ice maker.
The dining room is directly adjacent to the kitchen and looks out over the lava field to the golf fairway. The glass-topped table seats 5 easily. And the new bar stools make conversation at the counter easy!

ReviewsWrite a review
This was the first time my Husband and I used VRBO for our vacation. We must say, what an amazing experience. Not only we were blessed to work with an amazing couple, but the condo was amazing too! It is always hard not knowing what to expect, but our entire experience was wonderful! We were greeted in the condo and spoke in depth about things we were interested in doing and aspects of the condo. The condo itself was very clean, well organized, had an amazing layout for two couples or families; large bathrooms, large living room, amazing scenery on the lanai, very quiet and private. I can only say positive things. Will stay here again anytime!! Thank you again to the owners for making our experience PERFECTION

I encountered no problems during my stay and was very happy with the accomodations. Easy walk to the Hilton where I was attending a conference. Pool is small, but comfortable. It was great to save some money by making meals at home and having access to a fridge, stove, microwave, oven, washer/dryer. Would definitely stay here again.

Owner response: There are numerous advantages to our unit, among them being proximity to conference facilities at nearby hotels and first floor convenience! We, the owners, are all 55+ and have made a concerted effort to make our suite both comfortable and accessible. We look forward to having our guest stay again!

My husband and I chose Waikoloa to be more central to places we would be going (we've been to the island before but never stopped by Waikoloa since we don't really like crowded & commercialized places). Owners/Agents were very responsive & reservation was made easily. It was little bit tricky to find the place (if you pass Hilton, you passed the turn) and once you go thru the security gate, drive all the way in and the unit itself is the most corner spot of the whole place. A friendly agent was there waiting to give us the keys and explain little things. The unit is old and worn but clean and spacious. No view except huge ditch of lava rocks but it's very private & quiet being waaaay in the corner. Very comfortable beds but comforter smelled of another man (I'm very sensitive to smell and noise). Washer & dryer is on the small side. We rented a house last year near Kawaihae Harbor & it had body boards, beach chairs, small ice chest, lots of beach towels for all to use. This place had 3 adult beach towels and 1 child one, 1 broken body board, 1 beach recliner & a floaty thing we never used. Light in the master bath toilet room didn't work and master bath is an open bath (no door). Plenty of closet space and huge lanai where 4-5 cats gather (someone must have fed them before we came because they were there daily) and couple of them were very friendly (1 kept wanting to come into the unit so I had to keep my eyes on him). I don't consider this place to be a walking distance to any beach. Everything in Waikoloa is expensive - do your grocery shopping in Kona (cheapest) or Waimea. There is a helipad nearby so you will hear helicopters but wasn't a problem. Overall, it was pretty central and sufficient.

Owner response: We always are looking for ways to improve our suite at The Shores! We also like to know if there are issues while our guests are staying. To respond to some of the comments: - the linens are washed thoroughly between guest visits - not sure we can do much about sensitive noses - the Shores complex is about 30 years old and we are working to upgrade as finances allow - since we purchased the unit last June (2012) we have made the improvements outlined on our web site, with more to come - the washer and dryer are on the small side and they are on the list for upgrading - but they work well - the body board was left behind by someone else as we were unaware of a broken one - we can assist in getting things like light bulbs replaced and switches fixed if we know about them while guests are in residence - it is a 15 to 20 minute walk to A-Bay, the closest beach - we provide a map on our web site so guests know basically where our suite is situated in relation to other sites at Waikoloa Beach Resorts - the cats are ubiquitous in the area - we understand there is even a group on the island devoted to their care and feeding because they help keep unwanted rodents and other creatures at bay. We always invite comments and are happy to respond! Thank you for your time!
From beginning to end, this was a pleasant experience. Booking was easy, checking in was easy and the condo itself was lovely. We will definitely stay here again when we're back on the Big Island.

Excellent base for exploring the Island
Owners note: Our guest posted this on our other web site (HomeAway #3002780) and we thought we'd add it here as well. He said: "This location is perfect for a visit to the Big Island. It's 17 miles north of the airport and is easy to find. Fine shopping, beaches and resort facilities are within pleasant walking distance. The condo itself is provisioned excellently, with plenty of everything and all very high quality. We recommend strongly that you make a detour to Costco on your way in. Stopping there first thing is a Big Island tradition for a reason. Supermarket prices, especially at Waikoloa, are eye-popping. Grab the basics at Costco and fresh produce, fish, etc. from the farmers' markets and little vendors and you'll save hundreds of dollars. Literally."

Great condo!Guest comment entered by owner
Owner's note: The guest had difficulty posting this via the VRBO web site so we posted it for her. She said: "We had a wonderful 6-day stay at the condo. It was meticulously clean upon our arrival, and even stocked with essentials like paper towels, shampoo/conditioner, and all the kitchen items we needed to cook our meals. Having a washer and dryer was such a fantastic perk on vacation. The location is excellent - about a 5 minute walk to the Hilton, and about 15-20 to the Kings Shops/Queens Marketplace. We also loved the restaurant that is literally steps away from the condo community main gate. We typically drove to the beach, where there is free parking, but you could easily walk as well. We found one beach chair, multiple beach towels/mats, beach bags, and snorkeling gear in one of the closets, which made our beach trips so easy. We would have loved an additional beach chair or two, but there were plenty of free beach loungers at A-Bay, so it wasn't really an issue. Karen and the management company were extremely responsive throughout our planning and arrival. Anytime we emailed a question, we received a response immediately. Overall, we had a wonderful time and highly recommend the condo."

Year Purchased: 2012
About the owner: Two couples, Mark and Karen (left in photo), Barbara and Scott (right), purchased the property in summer 2012. We all reside on the mainland, Scott and Barbara in northern California and Mark and Karen in southern Wyoming.
Why the Owner Chose Shores at Waikoloa:
Mark and Karen had stayed at The Shores in 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed the exceptional suites and the proximity to A-Bay, the Hilton, the shopping areas (Kings and Queens), and being so close to Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Volcanoes National Park. When the opportunity arose to purchase this unit, we all jumped on it!
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Shores are close to A Bay, shopping, and golf. Numerous beaches line the Kohala Coast, each unique in its own way. Nineteen miles south is Kona International Airport and a few miles further south is the city of Kailua-Kona. The Shores and the Waikoloa area are excellent starting points to explore the Big Island of Hawaii!
