Comfortable Condo at The Shores Waikoloa
"We stayed in this condo for four nights in late August. The condo is clean, quiet, comfortable and nicely furnished. The WiFi worked well. The lanai is spacious and has a lovely outlook being on the 3rd floor. Unfortunately, during our time here it was too hot and humid to spend much time outside. Our only negative with the condo was the bed. It is rather small and we also found that the mattress has a "soft top" and was very hot and uncomfortable to sleep in, even with the air conditioner on. Also, be careful with the safe. We accidentally entered an incorrect code (our fault) and couldn't open it. The local concierge was able to open the safe with an override key but it cost us $25 to do so. As other reviewers have mentioned, the Queens and Kings shops are close by, as are beaches, hotels, restaurants, etc but to get the most out of your visit a rental car is recommended. The highlight of our trip was a night swim/snorkel with the Manta rays. This was an unbelievable experience. We went with Sea Paradise on their large catamaran and highly recommend them as we felt safe and comfortable with their friendly crew. Finally, Simon, the condo owner was friendly and professional to deal with in all our contact with him. Sure, there are a few rules and requirements with any rental property but none of them at this condo were onerous. The hot bed was an issue for us but apart from that we recommend this condo."

"Mahalo Gordon! We had a wonderful holiday on the Big Island and your beautiful condo was the icing on the cake! Hali’i Kai is an amazing resort and we are so thrilled we found your condo. It is so lovely inside and has everything one could ever need; however, we spent most of our time on the lanai just relaxing and enjoying the fabulous view! It was perfect – which is why we booked again for next year!!! Aloha"

"We have been vacationing on the Islands for 30 years. This is our first VRBO experience. From our initial introduction to the process, throughout the months that we anticipated our vacation- it was absolutely the easiest process. The owners communication and information were beyond what one would expect. Their home is absolutely everything the pictures show and more. We stayed for three weeks and are already hoping to stay there again next year. It is quiet, yet it's perfectly situated close to shopping and great restaurants. We feel this was our best vacation in Kona, and highly recommend this beautiful Condo."

"We had a wonderful stay at the Silvio's Vista Waikaloa condo. It was spacious, clean, really well stocked, no detail overlooked. Loved sitting on the patio enjoying the mornings and ending the night in the hot tubs and pool. The location was great and we easily traveled all over the island from here. There are shops and restaurants in walking distance but we preferred to leave the beach resort and venture into all the wonderful little villages on the island. The kitchen had everything you could want or need. There were ample beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, backpacks, an ice chest, etc. There is only two of us and the condo was huge; could easily accommodate 6 people and not be on top of each other. All-in-all, we had a great, relaxing 10 days and can't wait to go back! Thank you."
