At 'A-Bay' you can take a daytime or sunset sail, see tropical fish from a glass bottom boat or spend time on a whale watching cruise. 'A-Bay' is just a seven minute walk or just a one minute drive away.
The grounds at the Shores are truely beautiful with a lush landscaping of tropical trees and flowers surrounding waterfalls and lagoons.

321 is your peaceful and beautiful 'home away from home'!
'321 Shores is the cleanest vacation condo I've ever stayed in.' Karen Deines, Fort Collins, Colorado
'Traveling so often involves unpleasant compromises that finding a place as beautiful, comfortable and cozy as home is a rare treat. I cannot imagine anyone not being charmed by 321 Shores (and I'm really picky).' Anna Jordan, San Francisco
'A great value. The condo is very comfortable, has everything including wonderful views up to the mountains and is totally quiet. We found AJ's rates to be superior to others in the same complex. It is a ten minute stroll to a beautiful beach with lots of things to do from sailing to snorkeling and good swimming. You are within walking distance to the Hilton Waikoloa Resort which is a treat to see and you can walk to Roy's famous restaurant. We will be back.' Jill Faloon, St. Helena, California
'A 7 day Hawaiian vacation with my two daughters proved to be utterly spectacular while staying at 321 Shores. In the early mornings, we enjoyed Kona coffee (or hot chocolate) while relaxing on the tiled lanai in comfortable, padded lounge chairs. 321 is very spacious with windows galore! Uniquely enough, you get a lot of privacy because 321 is an end unit located on the 3rd floor. I enjoyed visiting the pool area at the Shores and taking advantage of the concierge services.
Not only did they book dinner reservations for my family, but they helped us locate the best snorkeling beaches. Another advantage to staying at 321 is being located within walking distance to the Kings Shops shopping and 'A Bay' beach (where we swam with sea turtles). 321 was perfect for my family and me. This condo features all the comforts of home (and more) and it's priced at a value below other units. I will pine until my next visit to Hawaii and my stay at 321 Shores.' Jessica Smith, Davis, California
'I had the chance to stay at this beautiful resort and at this condo. The beautiful view, the walks at the beach, and snorkeling are just a few things I did enjoy over my stay there. For me, as a stressed advertising director, I also did enjoy the quiet I found there. Again, thank you very much.' Regula Schmid, Zumikon Zurich, Switzerland

AJ's condo was exactly as his description listed. It was clean and well maintained. We felt safe and welcome in the secure community. We toured the entire island and AJ's condo is a great spot for a "home base" for busy adventurers. Having the grocery store and restaurants nearby was convenient. Highly recommended.

I worked for a week on the Big Island and was lucky enough to be able to book 321 at the Shores. What a perfect home-away--from home, only in paradise. AJ thought of every detail and sent me all sorts of information on the condo and the Big Island before my arrival. He called me before my arrival to let me know of construction on the entrance to the condo building. When I arrived, he had stocked all the necessities including coffee, tea, water and snacks in the refrigerator. He checked in to make sure I was comfortable and that I had everything I needed. The condo was spotless, has a beautiful view of the volcano, easy parking and was a quick walk to the beach. I had wifi access which was great as this was a working trip. The lanai was perfect for relaxing after work and the swimming poolo was a quick walk around the corner. The Queen's Market is withing walking distance. I hope to be able to book 321 at the Shores for my next trip!

We very much enjoyed our stay in AJ's condo recently. The owner, AJ, lives close by and was extremely helpful and precise re directions, where to go, how to get there, what to do etc. We enjoyed the pool and the (seldom used) tennis courts. We like to run and there were good, scenic trails from our doorstep. The condo is clean, well appointed and spacious and quiet. The website photos were accurate. The condo complex is well maintained. We will happily recommend this to friends and family.

Owner response: I travel away from my home on the Big Island a couple of times each year and when I do I always appreciate staying in a place where the extra effort has been made. A place that is perfectly clean, well equipped, well supplied and with lots of comfort amenities. I make every effort to provide the same sort of accommodations for each of my guests. A. J.

We just returned from our 2nd stay. The unit is well maintained and VERY comfortable. The location is excellent – a short walk/drive to great shopping and dining, a 20 minute drive to some of the best dining on the island and only 10 minutes away from two of the most spectacular beaches in the world. This is a real value for your vacation dollars – you could pay a lot more for a lot less. The sunrise views from the lanai are breathtaking, and the unit is so private and quiet, you’d never know anyone else was on the property. We cooked at home for half our meals and were so pleased to find whisks, colanders and a salad spinner among the kitchen’s accoutrements—even a potato masher! Everything was provided for outdoor/beach recreation – we didn't even bring beach towels this year. We were the envy of poolside acquaintances, whose rentals weren’t nearly as comfortable and complete as ours, but we so enjoyed our home away from home. Mahalo, AJ for a great vacation!

We enjoyed our week at A. J. 's condo. The location was great. It was clean and well-stocked. A.J. was so easy to work with. His directions and helpful hints were most helpful. Our favorite spot was the lanai...so relaxing.

A.J.' s apartment proved everything as advertised. Despite the unit being older, it was spotlessly clean, spacious and very well equipped. The lanai was large and quiet with lovely trees and mountains to look at. Easy walk to probably nicest beach at The Big Island, restaurants and shops within walking distance. We'll definitely plan to come back to this immaculate resort.

Owner response: The Shores at the Waikoloa Beach Resort was one of several condominium complexes that were first built in this Resort. The construction is of the highest standards with unique floor plans, modern appliances and very large lanais. (See the floor plan in the photo section of my listing.) The Shores has lush landscaping, tropical lagoons, tennis courts, an inviting pool and spa area, several conveniently located gas barbecue areas and a modern exercise facility with the latest equipment. As a result there are a number of experienced travelers who repeatedly return to stay at my Shores condo because of the amenities provided in the condo and in the Shores complex. Aloha, A. J.
THIS UNIT HAS EVERYTHING!
THIS UNIT HAS EVERYTHING!
Beautiful, large corner unit, with lovely wrap-around lanai. A.J., the owner lives locally and had many suggestions and recommendations for visiting the island. Beautiful walks, easy walking or driving to a local beach, A Bay, and. 5 minute drive to other beaches just north. Two large market place shopping centers where you can buy everything. A.J.'s unit really did have everything and we had a wonderful stay in his condo - In fact, if he didn't have It, you didn't need it!

My wife and I had just got married, and we needed a perfect idyll for our honeymoon, away from all the bustle of Tokyo. This condominium was perfect, in beautiful Waikoloa. The owner had really considered all the things that one needs to be comfortable. There were even snorkels and masks, so that we could enjoy the sea nearby, as well as the swimming pool. I highly recommend this lovely condominium, as it was both a pleasure to stay there and excellent value. We would certainly choose to stay there again, over the busy, noisy Hilton Hotel nearby.

This unit is a great place to stay. Super convenient location - handy to beach, shopping, and certainly golf. Great facility with really nice pool area and unit is a good size with excellent lanai for comfortable living and relaxing. Very clean and well maintained with extra amenities provided to help during the stay. We have stayed in at least 10 different locations in the Islands over the past 20 years and have now repeated at this property and will return again on a regular basis. Hard to beat!!!

About the owner: I moved to the Big Island from California twenty years ago and I've enjoyed every day here. The many large or small private beaches, the mountains, the great weather, the ocean, racing in large or small Hawaiian canoes, snorkeling along the reefs, horseback riding, fishing along the coast or hiking in the mountains, performances at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea, all the fine restaurants, the farmers' markets, there is always something new and different to do.
Why the Owner Chose Shores at Waikoloa:
I chose the Waikoloa/Kohala area for my home and the condos because of the great weather and the Waikoloa/Kohala beaches which are unsurpassed on the Big Island and certainly some of the best anywhere. I bought condos close to my home so that I can ensure that the condos and everything in them are in top condition at all times. Plus, I'm close by if needed for any reason, even if just to answer questions about the area or give directions, etc.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
I occasionally spend an evening at the condos because they're close to my home and to make sure that everything is as I would want it to be if I were a guest there.
