This large upscale 2BR/2BA villa is at Hali'i Kai, the only OCEANFRONT condo community within the famous Waikoloa Beach Resort. Besides a great condo, you will get to enjoy free of charge the Hali'i Kai's unique Ocean Club. Perched at the ocean's edge, it features a multi-tiered salt-water swimming pool (no chlorine!), a sand-bottom spa, a gourmet restaurant bar and grill, an exercise cabana with the finest equipment, and UNPARALLELED VIEWS of the Kohala coast, Maui, and Mauna Kea!
The Ocean Club is reserved exclusively for Hali'i Kai rental guests and property owners. Great restaurant and bar, and for the little ones, the top tier wading pool complete with special turtle fountain offers fun and safe water play. Recliners, changing room and towel service included. Truly outstanding!
Our spacious second-floor condo is the largest of the 2-bedroom units offered at Hali'i Kai-- a light and bright end unit with granite countertops and all the accessories and beach toys you could want. No unit above! Both bedrooms are spacious--the master with king bed and large luxury bath, the second bedroom with two queen beds.

About John Johnson
Hali'i Kai at sunset! We live in the foothills of the Sandia Mountains of New Mexico, a beautiful place in its own right. We also love being by the seashore, and searched for several years for that 'perfect place' for a second home. We found it at Hali'i Kai! We love being here together and also sharing this wonderful place with our five grandchildren, who delight in being here. As owners for the 'long haul', we take pride in our home and work to make it an awesome Hawaii haven for our guests.
John Johnson purchased this Condo in 2007
Why John Johnson chose Puako
Once we settled on Hawaii for our second home, we visited all the islands and found the Big Island most attractive for our tastes. We vacationed at many resorts in the Kona and Kohala areas. All were fun, but when we decided to buy a home, the Kohala Coast was the clear choice, and Hali'i Kai at Waikoloa Beach with its incredible ocean-front Ocean Club was our hands-down favorite!
What makes this Condo unique
Two of the most singular benefits of being our guests are the experience of staying in a wonderfully luxurious home in a truly beautiful setting, and the opportunity to enjoy the awesome seaside setting of the Hali'i Kai's Ocean Club--it is unique among Waikoloa Beach resorts in that respect. At your doorstep are also the many amenities of the wider Waikoloa Beach Resort--great dining and shopping at the Kings and Queens shopping pavilions, together with many free hula and musical performances and two quality markets for provisions. The beautiful 'A' Beach is a short walk or drive, and many other beautiful beaches are within a 15-minute drive, including the world-class beaches at Mauna Kea and Hapuna. It's a visit to paradise!

A Very Nice Place
Our family enjoyed a very nice stay. My only regret is that I did not book more time there. The villa is fully equipped with everything you need including cooking utensils, laundry supplies, and everything you need to go to the beach in style. If you do not want to go to the beach, the pool overlooking the ocean is just a 10 minute walk away. It is beautiful! The food and drinks at the Ocean Club are really good. The villa was clean, tastefully decorated, and very inviting. It felt like being home. Everything about this place is very nice, and the owner provides a very useful guide of the must do activities around the area. We were very appreciative of the nice stay for our vacation!
THE UNIT WAS EXCELLENT FROM EVERY PERSPECTIVE. STOCKED WITH EVERY CONVENIENCE YOU COULD EXPECT .
THIS WAS OUR FIRST VRBO RENTAL AND IT COULD NOT HAVE BEEN A MORE PERFECT EXPERIENCE. THE UNIT ITSELF WAS WELL APPOINTED, HAD EVERY CONCEIVABLE CONVENIENCE AVAILABLE TO US. IT WAS CLEAN AND COMFORTABLE. WE CAN'T RECOMMEND THIS OWNER AND UNIT ENOUGH. THE OWNER'S COULD NOT HAVE BEEN MORE FRIENDLIER AND CARING. WHAT A GREAT EXPERIENCE THIS WAS.
Best VRBO experience
Everything you could need while staying at this unit (even coffee bean grinder) plus all the beach toys, including sunscreen. Owner very accommodating and easy to work with on reservations. Very happy we found this excellent unit.
It was wonderful!! Very clean and comfortable, everything was organized and well looked after.
We really enjoyed our stay at this property, everything was immaculate and so cozy and comfy. Master bedroom and bathroom very spacious and well laid out. Nice lanai as well. Kitchen is a little tight especially when opening the dishwasher and fridge at the same time. The only other complaint was about the inside temp which made it difficult to sleep at night as there wasn't much of a cross breeze and the a/c is set at 76 degrees farenhait. Otherwise we loved our stay, especially with access to the Ocean Club at the end of the road with the beautiful pool area with awesome ocean views. Its a great area to be in, very quiet mostly and private with tennis courts and a basketball court as well. We would love to stay with John and Michelle again , they offered lots of perks in the condo. The Waikola area has lots to offer and is quite accessible to Kona, the airport and the North end of the island. Thanks again!
Thanks for your nice review of our property and for your input about the AC. Just wish you had let us know your concern early in your visit so we could have remedied it, as we work hard to ensure that all our guests have the best visit possible. In all the years that we have had the programmable thermostat installed, we have never had another guest express discomfort, so we were caught unawares. And we personally find the AC more than chilly during our visits and often turn it up or off altogether, preferring to open the windows and enjoy the lovely Hawaii climate. We have a long-term guest visiting at present and will contact them for their input. We are pleased that you had an awesome visit at our unit despite this issue, and we hope you will give us another chance to please you when Hawaii calls again!

Beautiful property and condo. Only negative at all is the lack of a BBQ. The communal one is far.
We are pleased that your family enjoyed our lovely condo and beautiful resort. As you were aware prior to reserving, we do not offer a BBQ. We and our guests have enjoyed using the 3 large built-in gas BBQ's 2 buildings down in the park-like setting of the Coconut Grove (along with the hammocks and picnic tables there!). Our guests have also enjoyed the large BBQ at the resort's oceanside Ocean Club, nicely furnished with picnic tables, umbrellas and awesome views! Mahalo for choosing us, and happy that you had an exquisite visit.

Wonderful place to enjoy family!
We love being in Hawaii and the villa is lovely. It was wonderful to open the doors and windows and enjoy the cross breezes, smell the plumeria trees and listen to the birds. The villa is well stocked and has really nice beach toys, chairs and umbrellas. What a great to stay for our vacation and we hope to go back very soon. Mahalo!
Fabulous ocean-side Ocean Club for guests includes swimming pool & spa, gourmet restaurant & bar & fitness center, all with panoramic ocean views!
