"We just returned from a 16 year hiatus to the Big Island after staying at this condo for 8 days and it could not have been better! The location of the complex is perfect next to the ocean to watch the great sunsets from the private pool and bar/restaurant located in it. We spent many afternoons by the pool being lazy which is what vacations are all about! The complex is located next to the Kings and Queens market areas which has everything you need and is about a 15 minute +/- walk away.
If you are reading this review and the unit for 3A is available for your dates book it and you will not be sorry. It is completely remodeled unit on the top floor overlooking the golf course with a view of the water. Everything you can possibly need is in the unit and it feels like home. We played the game of "Hey, wonder if they have this spice!" or "Hey, I got Mai Tai stain on my t-shirt, do they have spot-remover!" and they always did! Each morning we would walk over to the Hilton along the beaches to watch the world wake up and then to the Queen's market to get fresh donut. Life doesn't get any better than this!!
The complex is about 24 houses with multiple units in each one. It was very quiet and everyone was very friendly including at the pool where they bent over backwards to make sure you were having a good time. We commented that in our 10 trips to Hawaii we finally found the perfect complex to return to multiple times for future visits. There was minimal amount of human noise which allowed you to enjoy the Hawaii birds that were singing all the time.
Our favorite beach to visit was Hapuna Beach which is located just up the road about 10 minutes. This is perfect for old and young alike with a life guard on duty.
We drove to the volcano one day via Waimea and stayed overnight next to it which was perfect, checking out the views along the way"

"A Perfect Condo Vacation Home. So well equipped with everything from coolers and beach chairs to the grill on the lanai with binoculars for checking out the coast for whales. Great kitchen and beds were luxurious. The work out room and pool were an awesome way to start everyday literally hanging out over the ocean. The location is perfect for getting to beaches and Kona and even across the Saddle Road to Hilo (not to mention being right next to the Hilton). If you want to see the Big Island....this condo is the best home base you will ever find.."

"My husband and I recently spent a week in this beautiful condo at Hali'i Kai. We rented directly through the owner, Gordon, and the experience could not have been more positive. He was professional and efficient to deal with through the entire rental and check-in process. The condo was a spectacular second floor corner unit that is lovingly cared for. The extra items that the owner has added to the unit made our stay effortless and enjoyable. The furnishings are beautiful, the bedding is comfortable and fresh and the condo is stocked with lots of special items. The coffee, nuts and fresh fruit that we found at check-in were a welcome surprise. We found a closet full of beach towels, chairs, snorkel equipment, sunscreen (left by previous renters), binoculars (great for watching the whales from the pool deck). The kitchen was stocked with spices, dish towels, paper towels, plastic cutlery, foil, plastic wrap, dish soap, trash bags.... you name it, it was in the unit. We event found laundry detergent and dryer sheets in the laundry room. The bathrooms were supplied with big, fluffy towels and small samples of shampoo, soap and body wash.
Our vacation was amazing. The pool at the Hali'i Kai is beautiful, uncrowded and the view of the ocean from the pool is breathtaking. We enjoyed the pool bar and had some of our best meals on the island, sitting at the pool, watching the whales swim by. We are planning to return next year and will definitely be renting from this owner again. Thanks Gordon for a wonderful week in paradise. Can't wait to return!"

"Our family stayed at this condo for 5 nights. We were so happy and comfortable. The condo had everything we needed and more. Everyone in our family of four was glad to be able spread out after spending 5 nights in a hotel room together. The condo and the grounds are beautiful. Our 9 and 11 year-olds enjoyed playing on the lawn right outside the condo when we had dinners on the patio. The owners, Mike and Wendy, were very kind and helpful and even called to make sure all was going well when we arrived. The Halii Kai pool overlooks the ocean and is fun during the day and spectacular at sunset! We recommend having an evening meal there. Easy access to everything."
