  • Lovely peaceful condo with everything

    "This condo had everything you should need, there was only 2 of us but it could fit 6 easily. We walked to the beach which was 15 minutes, but a lovely walk, the beach club was shut but it would have been great if open (which is probably is by now). We also walked into the shops a few times, good grocery store and some restaurants. The pool was fab, in a natural style and not over chlorinated but was never busy and most of the time we had the pool to ourselves. We drove to the volcano for the day, a long way but worth it. The condo looks out onto a golf course, if you play golf you must do the Mauna Lani south course I think it was, (they have 2) the holes go right over the ocean and it was the most breathtaking golf course I have even seen. The condo was very clean and we found the magic wardrobe with all the beach items in which was very helpful in bedroom 3. The air con was a welcome relief and worked nice and fast. The kitchen was well equipped and you could do proper cooking, not just holiday snacks. The bed was the most comfortable I have ever had in a holiday property, like a 5* hotel bed, very high up for me. The only fault I could find was the lack of an airier which is always handy for wet swimsuits etc, there is a tumble drier for washing though. I could not fault this place, we wanted quiet and that is what we got, perhaps not the best place if you have loud teenagers, but ideal for small children. Thank you so much for our lovely stay."

  • Great find in the hills on the north side of Kailua-Kona

    "The location was great, really nice for getting a feel for the local community. Also an excellent choice if you're budget-conscious. Not only are you effectively getting 3 bedrooms for the price of two, but being on the north side of Kailua is great for affordable shopping at Target (most food) and Coscto ($4.99 roast chicken and cheap gas), as well as lots of free beach access. The place has plenty of lovely outdoor areas: we spent mornings by the koi pond watching the birds, fish, and geckos, and evenings on the lanai watching the sunsets and the local fauna passing thru. It has a spacious feel and seems to have been designed with a lot of consideration for natural light and air flow, and the decor is homey without feeling cluttered. The facilities include wi-fi, board games, and guide books, along with water sports equipment downstairs. Very nice master suite, and a roomy downstairs area suitable for a group of four. Superior kitchen and dining facilities. The owner is personable and responsive, and there is even a very nice neighbor who delivers her own locally made desserts. Does it get better?"

  • Lovely condo, great location

    "My husband, our adult daughter and I just returned from two weeks at this wonderful condominium. It's hard to be home after enjoying this condo's exceptional amenities, and perfect location with fantastic weather (no matter what the weather was like anywhere else on the Big Island, Waikoloa was always sunny - although it could get windy!). The unit is very bright and airy, with vaulted ceilings, overhead fans in the bedrooms and living area and a gorgeous view, looking out over the golf green to the lava field and Mauna Kea in the distance. The owner has thought of every requirement, from beach gear to quality bedding to kitchen utensils. The decor of the unit is lovely - light natural wood, with attractive tropical-themed details. There is very comfortable seating in the living and dining room, and additional bar seating at the kitchen counter and a glass table and chairs on the lanai. The two bedrooms are large and offered plenty of closet space (the master has a walk-in closet off the ensuite - sweet!). The well-equipped kitchen and access to excellent bbq facilities made home-cooking a breeze - along with fantastic local meats and fish we enjoyed well-priced fresh Ahi from the nearby Costco along with fruits, vegetables and treats bought at one of the many farmers' markets. The location is truly a highlight - we could walk to markets and shopping, a gorgeous beach (Anaehoomalu Bay - A-Bay!) and a variety of restaurants and take-out places. We have stayed in many different VRBO rentals, and this one will be remembered by all of us as one of the nicest!"

  • Koa Hale Stay

    "We planned a get-together of family members from various parts of the world and chose this house because of the large living/dining area, and the sea view. The house lived up to its description and was perfect for the seven people that stayed there, with the lanai as the star attraction. From there we relaxed, enjoyed the unbelievable view and finally saw dolphins on our last morning. Koa Hale is ideally situated, close to shopping centers, beaches and restaurants. The highlights of our trip included a snorkeling boat trip, visiting the volcano and swimming with manta rays. The property was clean and well maintained, except for the fridge water dispenser which developed a leak and had to be switched off half way through our stay. The kitchen had everything we needed, the only thing we couldn't locate was a potato peeler. It was a fantastic week and we would definitely stay there again."

Big Island Travel Tips

Hawaii is hands-down one of the most sought-after destinations in the U.S. There are eight main islands, and the largest and northernmost is called the Island of Hawaii -- better known as The Big Island -- to avoid confusing it with the rest of the state. It is a paradise filled with unparalleled natural wonders and all but two of the world’s climate zones, which serve as a home for a wealth of biodiversity. Come get your own slice of heaven on earth.

Kau

What’s a better sight to see than an active volcano spewing lava? Visit the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to see it for yourself. The Big Island is not only big, it’s still growing! Kilauea has been erupting since 1983. Situated 30 miles southwest of Hilo, it is one of the most active volcanoes on the planet. As a whole, the park boasts more than 150 miles of hiking trails through craters, rainforests, deserts and the volcanoes themselves. It is even considered a World Heritage Site. Amazingly, 250,000 to 650,000 cubic yards of lava are produced each day, which is enough to cover a road 20 miles long. Hurry, because no one knows when Kilauea will stop erupting! Catch this phenomenal natural event while supplies last! The visitor center is open from 7:45 a.m. to 5 p.m. daily. For the science behind it, take a walk through the Thomas A. Jaggar Museum for geologic displays, videos and maps. Besides the volcano, you and the family can explore Crater Rim Drive, an 11-mile scenic drive within the park.

Kohala Coast

Along the western edge you will find the black lava fields of the Kohala Coast. However, a little further south lies the yang to its ying, Hapuna Beach, which is bursting with Hawaii’s biggest white-sand beaches. Let’s put it this way: Hapuna has hit international top ten lists year after year. The landscape are pristine, and the vistas couldn’t get much better. At Puako Petroglyph Archaeological Preserve, you’ll discover lava rock carvings etched hundreds of years ago by native Hawaiians. No one is exactly sure what they mean, but it is generally thought that these carvings are records of birth and deaths from the ancient culture. There’s no better time than now, so treat yourself to luxury living as you can freshen up at top-tier spas to recharge and feel yourself again. Don’t forget to hit a round of golf on the world-class fairways and greens. Jack Nicklaus designed Hualalai Golf Course, while Robert Trent Jones Sr. had his hand at Mauna Kea Resort. Rest assured, you won’t go wrong.

Hamakua Coast

Hamakua Coast, on the eastern side, is famous for its waterfalls and riveting rainforest. Explore the heart-stopping Akaka Falls, where waters spill 442 feet through a gorge into the river below. You’ll be surrounded by bamboo, birds of paradise and huge ti plants along the way. The coast is ribbed with valleys and gulches that you’ll see during your drive at the Hamakua Heritage Corridor, a trip that passes rainforests and waterfalls alike. Unwind in 275 acres of beauty at the World Botanical Garden, home to the Umauma Falls, before you go zip-lining along vistas of the Pacific Ocean. It’s a perfect adventure for thrill-seekers young and old!

Hilo

You’ll be shouting “ahola” as you arrive in Hilo International Airport in this eastern region. The landscape brims with more rainforests and gardens than you will know what to do with. For science lovers, enjoy the amazing exhibits in the Pacific Museum and Imiloa Astronomy Center, Hilo’s newest top-notch attraction. To get a fresh bite to eat, pick out your favorite exotic fruit at Hilo Farmers Market, a knockout among locals. Cafe Pesto serves seafood caught the same day that will leave you and your family wowed.

Puna

Puna packs those black-sand beaches that Hawaii is known for. Tourists flock to Kalapana, a historic town destroyed by lava. Today, the site is the prime spot to see the lava reach the sea. A few miles away, you can see Keaau, where lands used to be covered in sugar canes. At the Lava Tree State Park, there are molds of trees that lava formed in the 1700s. Swim in pools heated by the volcanoes beside regions rich in tropical fruits and vegetation. Isaac Hale Beach Park provides one of the island’s most coveted surf spots, although swimming is not recommended due to the strong currents.

In Hawaii, you’ll leave with more than just a lei around your neck, you’ll come home with zip-line extravaganzas, volcano explosions and Pacific seafood dinners floating on your mind.
