Good place to stay on Waikoloa Beach Drive
We stayed here recently for just over three weeks and enjoyed our stay. We were there with my son and his wife for a portion of the time and found the layout to be a great one. The condo provided good spaces to interact and also more private spaces. We especially appreciated that both bedrooms had en suite bathrooms. The kitchen was well-equipped and we appreciated the spices and staples that were there when we arrived. If you consider this property, you should know that Waikoloa Beach Drive is a busy street. There is a lot traffic pretty much all the time and this unit is directly overlooking the street. We were familiar with the location, so this was not a surprise to us and it didn't bother us, but some might feel differently. The location is great for access to the beaches in the area and avoids the congestion closer to Kailua-Kona. We would stay at the property again. One final thought, we received information needed for check-in on the later side compared to some other properties at which we have stayed. Our travel schedule did not allow us to print the information, which we wanted to do in case our phones were out of battery on arrival, if we received it the day before our departure for Hawaii. If you should be in a similar situation, be sure to contact the owner so you get the information in time. We did this and did receive it two days before departure.
Gorgeous, spacious, well appointed.
We stayed here over Christmas and New Years and just had the best stay.
The condo is huge! Lots of room to spread out the double Lanai is a special treat as you can see both of the volcanos Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. Every morning we ate outside and watched the sun come up. The grounds are so we kept and there was a hose over by the garbage area to rinse your sandy beach stuff. So close to many nice shops and restaurants and the pool was nice a clean with very few people there. The kitchen had everything you need to make gourmet meals, we ate at home every breakfast and lunch and many dinners. Very quiet complex although you can hear a lot of traffic with the doors and windows open. We would have slept with the doors open but there seemed to be many buses driving by late into the night. Still a great place to stay with plenty of linens and beach toys.
I stayed at the condo with my mother and sister for a conference located at the Hilton. The condo was closely located to the other resorts so an easy walk to my conference daily. It was also centrally located to great beaches up and down the coast for my family to explore while I conferenced. The condo was clean and well stocked with towels, linens, beach gear, and other welcomed appliances. The porch also provided a wonderful view and was a great location for morning coffee. I would highly recommend this condo for others looking for an affordable but well-kept and nice condo near the resorts of Kona.
As advertised Waikoloa condo
We stayed over Christmas 2017. Family of four (two teenage girls).
- lots of space. The condo is very large so tons of space for everyone.
- decent location. Not on the beach of course, but a short walk to A-Bay. Across the street from the Hilton as well, which is well worth a wander through
- beach gear. Boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, etc. are in the condo. Some of its looking pretty old, but a definite plus to have it at all
- Kitchen is well stocked with appliances, cutlery, etc.
- Not crowded. We expected it to be crazy over Christmas, however it was anything but. Several times we were the only ones at the pool - which is a bit on the small side, but pleasant enough and well maintained
- Excellent communication. Bob was easy to work with. Answered promptly and was genuinely helpful
- The road. It is right underneath you, albeit the building is somewhat above it on a slope. If you spend any time on the lanai, or keep your windows open, you will hear road noise constantly.
- Dated. Pretty much everything feels long in the tooth. Bathrooms, appliances, furniture. It feels very much like a rental, if that makes sense
- Little things. Several dead lightbulbs, missing batteries in remotes, a few dirty dishes in cupboards (due to the old dishwasher I suspect... see above). Nothing serious, but enough to mention
We love the big island and will likely return there. As to this place... if I recommended it, it would be based on price point and size. My biggest caution would be the road - if you want to spend any time on the lanai it will be probably be an annoyance. For us, we'll probably pony up for something on the beach next time.
We stayed in this condo with another couple who had never been to the island. I was a little nervous about renting this property since I hadn't stayed at Waikoloa Beach before and you never really know what you are going to get. You have to trust the reviews. Well, this place far exceeded all of our expectations! It was absolutely beautiful inside and out! It was beautifully appointed, VERY roomy, VERY clean and VERY comfortable! The views from the lanai were amazing, loved having breakfast and watching the sunrise over Mauna Kea! In the condo were beach chairs, beach towels, snorkel gear, boogie boards and ice chests. What more could you need? The property is very conveniently located near shops, restaurants and fabulous beaches. It is also an easy drive to get to other parts of the island. The owner gave us several recommendations, most of which we did. They were fantastic, Bob, thank you! We especially loved the Kilauea Iki hike, stargazing at Mauna Kea, the Pololu Valley, kayaking and snorkeling at Captain Cooks Monument, and Hapuna Beach! The take out sushi from the grocery store in the Queens marketplace was awesome! This couldn't have been better unless there were a fruit basket to welcome us to the condo....oh wait! The owner did that too! Thank you!!! Will definitely want to stay here again and again!
Great rental, location, and good owner to work with
We had a fantastic stay at this unit. It was just two of us so we were happy to find a place that was less expensive but not far from the water. The unit had everything we needed. In the closet were lots of things we found useful at the beach. Chairs, boogie boards. snorkel/fins, cooler, etc. We were even surprised to have a nice gift basket of food goodies which we enjoyed.
It is very convenient to getting to Hapuna Beach and Beach 69 (10 minute drives) which are some of my favorites on the island.
The complex was very quiet. There is a road in front of the unit but the traffic was pretty minimal. We appreciated the peek-a-boo views of the water from the lanai. We also enjoyed walking/jogging out of the unit along the public access trail that goes to A-Bay nearby.
There is a grocery store in the resort village a few minutes drive away that has the usual groceries and some nice del options for breakfast/lunch/dinner if you want alternatives to going out to the restaurants. Groceries are less expensive though closer to the airport at the Safeway and Costco so if stocking up may want to go there.
Robert the owner was easy to work with and trustworthy and got my deposit back promptly.
Volleyball Court at the Beach Across the Street.
We can offer Golf discounts on the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Golf Courses.
