Property description

The weather in Waikoloa boasts sunny and breezy days! The views from E304 never cease to amaze. As you enjoy your morning coffee or evening cocktail from your (381 square feet ) large lanai, you will have great views of the bay and Hualalai Mountain. (another currently dormant volcano) Stay in this 2 bedroom, 2 bathroom, top floor ocean view unit that is protected by the winds. (This is important as Waikoloa is known for its big winds.) Winter sunsets are amazing from here. The Vistas are a most convenient place to stay, without the added costs of resort and parking fees.
This master planned luxury resort has two golf courses designed by Robert Trent Jones, JR. of which the Vistas is situated next to the Beach Golf Course. Across the street is Aneho'omalu Bay ('A-Bay') located between the Marriott and Hilton Waikoloan Hotels. "Lava Lava" Beach Bar, located across the street, is a fabulous place for a glass of wine or Mai Tai. Sign up for the Dolphin Encounter, Whale Watch Cruises, or stroll the Hilton hotel gardens and take a tram or boat ride.
Our top floor unit has fabulous views of 'A Bay'! A hammock on the lanai is wonderful for a quick nap. The apartment has many original pieces of art-oils and watercolors from local artists, and , many are also available for your purchase.
All the essentials of home are available to you as well, We have a well stocked pantry and essentials not found in your typical rental: bathroom toiletries, plenty of toilet paper, laundry detergent, dish washer tablets, olive oil, salt n pepper, etc.....and much much more!
The master bedroom has a king bed, ceiling fan, flat screen t.v and ensuite master bathroom is newly renovated (pictures will be added to the website ) with double bowl sinks, a shower and tub. There are custom merabau wooden sliders to darken the bedroom room for sleeping.
The second bedroom consists of a queen bed, ceiling fan and plenty of drawers for clothes. There are sliders for privacy. The second (renovated) bathroom is just off the entryway hall and has a toilet, wash basin, and shower. There is a large washer and dryer, both of which are front loaders.(unlike many rentals which feature smaller ones that barely wash a single king sheet)
The kitchen is upgraded with new appliances and granite counters. It has all the conveniences of home such as stocked condiments, plenty of laundry detergent, dish washer pellets, etc. No need to shop for these items. Saving you time and money.
Dining is for 6 persons with seating for 3 at the breakfast bar. A wine refrigerator is operational and available for your use. Living room has large ceilings with a ceiling fan, large flat screen t.v. with cable, DVD player and sound system. Couches both have ottomans for putting your feet up. Decor is tropical and Hawaii-Aina, with many original pieces from local artists, including those from Peter Jefferson who also heads the Kohala PleinAir Artists. Please fee free to inquire about joining on group on our weekly Friday sessions. We schedule different locations (some are private residences) which keep our artists inspired. For guests needing art supplies, those can also be provided for your use if arranged in advance. (Nominal fee for costs of canvas, paper, paints, etc....)
Our lanai has a dining table for your outdoor meals and wet bar as well .
Our complex pool has one of the largest pools- it's a 25 yard salt water lap pool. There are also 2 hot tubs. A good sized exercise room is also on the complex grounds with access possible even in the wee hours if you cannot sleep!
The Vistas has been voted most recently as the best value for your money here on the Kohala Coast. (Whereas the Hilton and Marriott Hotels charge either a daily parking fee or resort fee , or both) Some other apartment complexes are considering also imposing 'resort' fees to guests, while we are a gated community with no fees and free parking. You will feel welcomed and comfortable.

This is a wonderful location as it almost never rains! Located about 25 minutes drive north of the airport, the island breezes keep you very comfortable. You are in walking distance of both the King's and Queens Shops which offer restaurants and Food Court as well as a upscale ABC Grocery Store. The world class Hapuna Beach, 69 Beach, and Mauna Kea are all but 15 minutes drive with 'A' Bay right across the street.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: My husband, Peter, and I have owned this unit since 1997, and it has been on the rental market for two full years as we have moved to the Big Island permanently after spending every Christmas and summer here with our two daughters since 1993. We moved from Hollis, NH and currently reside at Mauna Lani. Peter attended Carnegie Mellon for his degree in Architecture while Lillian attended St. Anselm College for Political Science. She spends her time working towards mastering beaded jewelry. Currently Peter spends his time at leading the Kohala Pleinair Artists. His art, both oil and watercolors, can be viewed at Barela Gallery at Mauna Lani. Our condo will have some of his artwork displayed along with some of the other local artists.

Why the Owner Chose Vista Waikoloa:
Location! Location! The Vistas is incredibly convenient and central to everything Waikoloa Resort and the Kohala Coast has to offer. The views from the apartment are incredible. When our family lived on the mainland, we looked forward to our time at the Vistas. It had everything our family needed for a perfect vacation! All the comforts of home as well as perfect weather, amazing beaches, and a great lanai from which to relax!

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
The Vistas has the convenience of being within walking distance to the beach, restaurants, shops, and hotels. It is solidly built and you will not hear your neighbors through the walls.(other properties cannot make that claim) It also boasts some of the biggest lanais and a large salt water lap pool. Our home has dedicated wifi as well as long distance telephone service with free calling to the mainland, Canada, and US Territories. This has proved useful to international guests. Our apartment is perfect, as it is shaded in the morning, while sunsets can be viewed from the lanai.(in the winter months) The lanai gets gentile Kona breezes from the ocean, but is protected from the heavier trade winds that our coast is known for.
