È Komo Mai! We are pleased to welcome and invite you to stay in our oceanfront villa in Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Big Island. You will feel relaxed and inspired in our Hawaiian island retreat. Hali’i Kai is the only true oceanfront complex in Waikoloa and offers the most spectacular views along the prestigious Kohala Coast.

Our vacation home is one of the most beautifully decorated homes in the resort and was selected by the developer, Centex Destination Properties, to feature on their website (Ho'oulu model).

LOCATION: Our villa, Unit 12D, is an upper-level corner unit and the largest two-bedroom floorplan. We are located in one of the best buildings in the entire complex. Building 12 is both oceanfront and on the golf course with dramatic views of the ocean, splashing blowholes, lava rock, lush green grass and swaying palm trees. You will enjoy a prime oceanfront location with unobstructed panoramic views of the Pacific from every room (a rarity in this project) and the Beach Course’s famous 12th hole along the ocean’s edge.

*** Please visit our website or click on the link below to view the site plan and our building's prime location, as well as maps, additional photos and other information. ***

VILLA INTERIOR: This two-bedroom villa is our special island retreat that reflects our love for Hawai’i. The interior was professionally decorated by one of the islands’ most talented interior designers resulting in a resort-quality vacation home. You will feel welcomed in true Aloha Spirit as you enter our villa. The furnishings and artwork incorporate the surrounding nature and Hawaiian culture.

Our home features a beautiful and richly-appointed living room, large flat-screen television, HD-DVR recorder and DVD player, dining table for six and a fully-stocked gourmet kitchen with granite counters, stainless-steel appliances and African Mahogany cabinetry. Off the living room is a spacious lanai with your own BBQ grill, large dining table and comfortable seating to gaze at magnificent ocean and sunset views.

The master bedroom includes a king-size bed with luxurious bedding, wall-mounted television and DVD player. The master bathroom features two-sink granite counter, large walk-in shower and deep bathtub to soak away your cares. Two queen-size beds with rich bed linens are found in the second bedroom along with antique furniture pieces accenting the room, a desk, and an armoire holding a television and DVD player. The guest bathroom is decorated in Big Island style with a full bath, shower and two-sink granite counter. An assortment of island scented bath products are provided.

For your convenience, our home offers a laundry room with full-size washer/dryer, full assortment of bath and beach towels, iron/ironing boards and laundry supplies. High-speed WiFi internet access is included at no charge.

AMENITIES: You are just steps away from the Hali’i Kai Ocean Club, an oceanfront clubhouse featuring dramatic ocean views, a large multi-level swimming pool with a waterfall, heated sandy-bottom lava rock spa, aqua loungers and kids’ pool with a spraying turtle. At the private Ocean Club, you will enjoy all the luxury amenities of a first-rate resort with a poolside restaurant and bar, outdoor covered dining and lounge areas, resort quality bathroom facilities, ocean-side exercise cabana and Hali’i Kai’s concierge services. The atmosphere is private and tranquil. The outdoor BBQ area is just steps from the villa for those of you that savor the preparation of a BBQ meal while experiencing a glorious sunset over the ocean.

LOCAL AREA & ATTRACTIONS: Hali’i Kai is situated on a magical site with humpback whales (Kohola) commonly seen frolicking directly off the shoreline during whale season, crashing waves, the azure blue Pacific coastline and the backdrop of sunrises over Mauna Kea. From the Ocean Club, take an easy scenic five-minute stroll on the 'Trail by the Sea' (Ala Kahakai) to the Hilton Waikoloa Village. You can then walk or board a water taxi or tram to several excellent restaurants, the Dolphin Quest lagoon or Kohala Spa.

Our villa is perfect for a memorable family vacation, romantic honeymoon or relaxing getaway. Spend your days partaking in Hali’i Kai’s onsite amenities or enjoy the nearby activities in the Waikoloa Beach Resort, including Anaeho’omalu Bay, two 18-hole championship golf courses, King’s Shop, Queen’s Marketplace, two world class spas, luau shows, assortment of restaurants, and walking tours through petroglyph fields. At Anaeho’omalu Bay, visitors sunbathe on the beach and swim, snorkel, scuba and windsurf in the bay. Watch sea turtles (Honu) swim right up to your feet and observe the variety of wildlife in the beautifully-preserved ancient Hawaiian fishponds.

We look forward to sharing our Hali’i Kai villa with you and hope you will experience the same feeling of awe-inspiring joy and appreciation for the surrounding beauty of the Big Island.

Aloha and Mahalo Nui Loa

Awesome owner and beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

This was our third visit to Kona but the first time at the Hali'i Kai. The Waikoloa area is just beautiful. Restaurants and the grocery store were very close by. The Hali'i Kai resort is absolutely gorgeous and perfectly maintained. Every day we saw workers keeping the complex pristine looking.

Kathy was great to deal, with so patient and understanding when I needed to changes my dates after the rental agreement was already signed. She always responded to my emails and even allowed us to check in early.

The condo is a absolute Gem. The views from the Lani are breath taking and condo nicely decorated. I am very picky about the firmness of the matress I sleep on. The beds were very comfortable and easy to get a restful sleep. Even the pillows were plentiful, nice and fluffy. The condo was clean and had everything we could have possibly needed, including beach items. Kathy had one entire plastic bin filled with snorkling equipment. We had not intended on going snorkling so it was great to have when we just decided to go at the last minute. Having beach chairs right in the closet was also great, we didn't have to run out and rent them. A full size washer and dryer right in the unit, was also very convenient.

The resort had everything there, we never needed to leave. The black bottom pool was prettier than any of the area resort hotels. We went through all of them and the Hali"i Kai had them all beat. Beautiful flowers everywhere and even a sand bottom jacuzzi. Having a restaurant and bar right at the pool was also great. We ate at the restuarant a few times and the bar had a lot of tropical drinks we had to try. One afternoon a musician performed at the pool. We enjoyed him so much we went to the Kings shops when his band was there and enjoyed free entertainment.

The open aired gym was fantastic to have . I was able to work out every morning and it was a pleasure to watch for dolphins while on the treadmill. Equipment , weights and yoga supplies, there was something for everyone.

I saw prior reviews that stated this was more like a retirement complex. That did not seem the case while we were there for 14 days. There were honeymooners, young couples with families and the older group. I saw children in the pool every day we were there, including a gal who brought in 14 kids with her. So it appears the complex caters to people of all ages.

Kathy is wonderful and her condo beautiful. We can't wait for a return visit.

Beautiful Spot

  • 5 of 5

Location in the complex is amazing with a beautiful view of the ocean and close to pool and work out room and bar and restaurant. The condo is clean and well stocked with everything you need both in the kitchen and beach toys. Beds and pillows are comfortable and bedding soft. My husband enjoyed the Beach Golf course too at a reduced rate. Would highly recommend this Property and Kathy was a joy to deal with.

Fantastic everything!

  • 5 of 5

Thanks a million Kathy for all of your support before, during, and after our stay at your beautiful condo! The condo was wonderfully decorated and spacious, it's easily 2 - 3 times the size of most hotel rooms. We started out every morning with coffee on the large lanai, such great views of the signature hole of the Beach Course and ocean. It was magnificent to watch the waves crash on the lava rocks during high tide. The proximity to the exercise facility/swimming pool/bar and grill was about as close as we could get. We were also only minutes away from the restaurants and shopping at the Queen's and King's shops in Waikoloa Village. It was a delight to take advantage of golf discounts because of your membership. Your condo - which my family affectionately referred to as "home" one day into our eight day stay - will most certainly host us on future visits!

Thank you, Kathy, for sharing your incredibly beautiful villa with us. You were a delight to work with. We felt right at home and loved the beautiful view of the golf course and ocean from the lanai. The Ocean Club facilities and golf discount privileges were a plus. We were hoping to return in March however see that the calendar is full. We will certainly keep your villa in mind for future visits and will recommend this villa to family and friends.

Wonderful Vacation!!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible stay at this beautiful condo/villa! The view from the lanai was gorgeous, and each evening we were able to enjoy the wonderful sunsets. We really enjoyed using the Ocean Club facilities as well; great food, great service, and an awesome hot tub, all with ocean views! We would definitely return and highly recommend this unit to all.

Just Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

The 2 bedroom condo at Halii Kai would have to have one of the best positions on the property - the ocean and golf course views were the best in our 4 week stay around the islands (we even saw several whales during our stay!) Close to the pool an Ocean Club - it was both quiet and so convenient to all the facilities. The gym is small and could have a few more pieces of equipment however we still enjoyed the very modern walking and cross trainer equipment that was there, especially with such amazing views out to the ocean.

We used the tennis court and basketball court and were able to use racquets and balls from the main office( these were a bit old and needing replacement but all ok for a bit of fun)We walked every day and took the ocean path through to the Hilton to get our daily coffee at Waikoloa Coffee Co -a really good walk especially if you circuit their grounds and then come back via the road. The unit itself is beautifully maintained,comfortable and had everything you needed to make your stay enjoyable. We cooked most nights - simply because we just enjoyed being there and the cooking equipment is all of good quality with everything you need for the best gourmet cooking. The BBQ is first class and was so great to have. The odd occasion that we didn't cook we were happy to utilize the early dining at the Ocean Club - food was great and enjoyed by all.

Golf discounts were great to have and both my husband and son enjoyed the kings course the most.

We used the provided Boogie Boards and beach towels to venture up to Hapuna Beach - a really short easy drive from the property and excellent beach.

Thank you Kathy for your very professional handling of all my enquiries and very reliable booking system. You ensured we felt confident and at ease straight away and I would never hesitate to rent through you again.

Rest assured you will have a perfect stay here.....We can't wait to come back to Halii Kai!
