Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This beautiful 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath, non-smoking, vacation condo is located in the beautiful Waikoloa Beach Resort. This unit is an 'A' floor plan which has a larger kitchen and additional half bath. The Vistas are all steel and concrete construction making the units very quiet and peaceful. The unit has a view of the bay and the volcanos, Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai.

Tucked away in a private, gated community, this unit overlooks the eighth hole of a championship golf course, and is just minutes from other championship golf courses. The unit is very close to many desirable sites.

One of the best is, The beach at A-Bay (Anaeho’malu Bay) is just a short walk, A-Bay's white sand, crescent beach features unbelievable snorkeling, kayaking, kite surfing and countless other beach activities in a gorgeous setting. Water excursions are available from the beach at A-Bay, snorkeling, diving, sunset cruises and whale watches!

You may not want to leave this gated community due to the access to amenities. There is an on-site new fitness facility, pool, hot tub/spa, and gas grill and BBQ. The unit itself is a recently updated condo with all of the desirable extras. The kitchen is loaded with all necessary gadgets and extras. We also include everything one needs for a perfect day at the beach, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach chairs and a cooler.

The living room is fully equipped with a flat screen HDTV, stereo surround, iPod docking system, broadband internet access with Wi-Fi, CD/DVD, and plenty of comfortable seating. Stepping on to the large, wrap-around lanai, you can take in the view of the beautiful Big Island and the magnificent Mona Kea volcano.

Perfect for a family trip, the master bedroom has a new king-sized bed and the second bedroom has two twin beds. The twin beds can be arranged as a king bed. The new Washer and Dryer are conveniently located in the unit, making it perfect for a long stay with the family – even the kids!

Should you choose to venture out, grocery stores and fantastic shopping is located just minutes away. Many excellent high quality restaurants are located in the nearby shopping centers, The King and Queen shops, and the Waikoloa Beach Hilton is a stone’s throw away.

It’s truly amazing how many activities one could take in within just a few miles. Pamper yourself with a world-class spa treatment, attend a traditional Hawaiian Luau, go on a glass-bottomed boat ride, snorkel at A-Bay, enjoy swimming or windsurfing in the warm, tranquil waters, or simply lay on one of the many beaches and soak up the famous Hawaiian sun.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a great stay. The condo had everything we needed and much more. Everything was clean and well situated, the kitchen was well-stocked, and the beds were very comfortable. Evrything worked as it should. We never used the AC...we wanted to be warm. The pool was absolutely wonderful for the kids...and we enjoyed it as well. The Waikoloa location is perfect for exploring some of the beaches along the coast...easy drives to Hapuna and others. The owner was great to deal with...very helpful and honest. We would stay again in a heartbeat. 5 stars Wade

As advertised Waikoloa condo

  • 4 of 5

We stayed over Christmas 2017. Family of four (two teenage girls).

The good

- 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 bad

- 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.

Awesome condo!

  • 5 of 5

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

  • 5 of 5

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.

December review

  • 5 of 5

We had the fantastic opportunity to stay in this condo for a week over Christmas of 2012. First and foremost thanks to the owner for all his patience and help with the arrangements. Professional and helpful and frankly above and beyond what should be expected of an owner. Thanks.

The condo itself was excellent and quite large for a two bedroom. It was extremely clean and very well stocked to the point of being almost silly. There was nothing we needed from kitchen supplies to beach supplies including boogie boards. We brought our own snorkeling gear so didn't notice if there was any in the condo but it wouldn't surprise me to find it there since everything else was. Our daughter loved the fact there was a volleyball to use as well.

Rooms are large and clean and the beds are comfortable with decent linens. Towels were fantastic and both bathroom showers worked very well with great water pressure, helpful for getting the sand out. The kitchen had everything you could want and more. The TV was nice and large and had a decent stereo setup as well though we never used it. Lanai is incredibly large and the furniture is very comfortable to sit and read a book.

The property does feel close to the road but noise was not bad. We were there over Christmas season which is by far the busiest time but even then the traffic was minimal between 10 P.M. and 6 A.M. If you go to bed early or sleep really late then you might hear some traffic noise from the road if you sleep with the windows open but with the doors closed there were no issues at all. And if you do sleep with the windows closed the central air keeps the condo really comfortable and unlike some condos we've stayed in the A/C unit wasn't struggling to keep up, it worked really well.

Parking was very close to the unit with a nice wide space and there is an elevator nearby as well to haul your groceries up to the second floor. Didn't make use of the pools or exercise facilities but did use the bbq's that were well maintained.

Just a fantastic condo with a fantastic owner. We hope to be back soon. Mahalo.

GREAT VACATION SPOT

  • 4 of 5

The condo is everything you'd want - roomy, well-furnished, comfortable, conveniently located to beaches, stores and hotels and with great mountain views and elevator access. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves for the week we were there. Prospective renters should be aware that a busy street is very near and could be bothersome when sitting around the new table and chair set on the large lanai or when inside with the doors open and AC off.

  • 5 of 5

Nicely appointed condominium in well-located complex. Pool was being renovated during our stay, but otherwise the unit, location, interaction with the owner were all very positive. I highly recommend this location and particular condominium unit.
