Excellent Condo in Waikoloa
"This is a great property in Fairways Villas. We have rented 5 homes/condos through VRBO in Hawaii, and this one was the best. It is modern, recently updated, and very comfortable. We went to an open house in an identical unit two doors away, and the difference was striking. We were met by Bennett when we arrived who explained everything and told us to contact him if we had any questions or concerns. He was very helpful. The condo is very well equipped with all you need to cook in if you'd like, we did this most nights, using the communal grills on several occasions. It is also fully stocked with boogie boards, snorkel gear, chairs, umbrellas and coolers which we used on visiting the nearby beaches.
The overall Waikoloa property is a great location for running (especially through the Hilton property), seeing sunsets on the beach, going out to dinner (Lava Lava beach club, Tropics Ale House, and other restaurants in the Kings and Queens shops). We went to to Hapuna and Puako beaches, the Kohala zipline, had an evening dinner at the Kahua Ranch, drove to the summit of Mauna Kea and traveled to the Mountain Thunder coffee plantation. We were always busy but looked forward to coming back to the condo."

"We had a wonderful time at this beautiful condo. Hail Kai is a gem, a small quiet gated condo complex with lovely accommodation, beautifully maintained landscaping and the spectacular Ocean Club. Ken's duplex condo is the biggest floorpan with 3 spacious bedrooms and bathrooms as well as a large living room and kitchen and is in the most perfect location right next to the Ocean Club and with spectacular ocean views from the two lanais. The furnishings and decor in the condo are all top quality and give it a high end luxury feel. We had looked at all the photos but were still wowed by it when we arrived. The condo also has lots of good quality cookware and crockery in the full kitchen so it was easy to cook at the condo when we didn't feel like dining out (buy your groceries at Costco in Kona or at the supermarket up in Waikoloa village). Ken was a delight to work with and the whole experience couldn't be bettered. He even allows guests access to his garage where he has beach chairs, several sets of snorkel gear and some boogie boards which guests can use. We would love to rent this place again."

"Spacious layout, beautifully decorated and furnished, complete kitchen/appliances, luxurious bath amenities. It sounds cliche but all of it's true! Sitting on the lanai sipping our cocktails, watching the sunset glow. We truly enjoyed our stay. Close to shops, beaches, restaurants (Tropics Ale House was VERY convenient and Lava Lava Beach Club was great - make a reservation). The 'Welcome' fruit basket and coffee were greatly appreciated. There is a small home library that includes books on the flora/fauna of The Big Island, as well as some guide books. All of these were very helpful and well-used. Owners were easy to contact and responsive in every way. We snorkeled everyday at nearby beaches, drove to Keauhou Bay and took a Sea Quest boat trip, visited the Volcanoes National Park (a very long drive, but doable), had ice cream in Hawi, and just plain relaxed in our home away from home. A perfect way to celebrate our anniversary. We would definitely come back!"

"We had a wonderful time over Christmas at this condo. There was our family of five (children 5, 7, 11) with my parents and we all felt we had plenty of space.
The condo was tastefully decorated and very well equipped. The location was perfect. This was our third visit to the Big Island and we preferred this location over Kona. It was close to many great beaches, restaurants and shops. We preferred Hapuna and Mauna Kea beach. A-Bay is great for the sunset because it has a cluster of palm trees that you can get in your sunset photos.
The beach amenities are really what made our stay. The whole family used the boogie boards and there were enough for all five of us. The coolers, beach chairs, umbrellas and other items were so useful and were used almost daily.
Alice and Wilson were so nice to work with and provided a lot of helpful information before we arrived. They even left guidebooks at the condo to use.
We will definitely stay again!"
