Play unforgettable golf in this paradise with 8 terrific golf courses within 15 minutes. Nanny Service may be arranged to come to our villa while you play.

Our friendly concierge can help you create the vacation of a lifetime with activities tailored to each person in your group. Upon your arrival they can provide a lei greeting at the airport and if desired have groceries awaiting you at Hale Pele. They can even set up a photo session at the beach to memorialize your trip.

About Kat and Derry

Decorating and enjoying our villa has been one of our most rewarding ventures. We combed Hawaii and California to find each original art piece and perfect item. We love cooking, so you'll find everything to prepare gourmet meals. Because we have kids we loaded our villa with boogie boards, snorkel & beach gear, tennis rackets, DVDs, CDs and games to entertain every age. You will feel you are staying in a friend's well-appointed home - because you are.

We'd love to have you as our guests. How soon can you get here?

Kat and Derry purchased this townhome in 2003

Why Kat and Derry chose Puako

Our perfect East-facing site has spectacular views over the 10th fairway to distant volcanoes. It has the most privacy of all WCV end units, set back from the road with expansive green lawn and palms between it and others. Hale Pele provides shady afternoons on the lanais overlooking the golf course, but away from warmer afternoon sun and errant golf balls. We have an attached garage and also the closest outdoor parking space reserved for guests.

We chose Waikoloa Colony Villas for their superior spaciousness, architectural design including garages, amenities, privacy and landscaping. Waikoloa Beach Resort has a central location and the island's best beaches and weather. The aloha spirit is abundant on Hawaii's unspoiled Big Island. We love the diversity, natural beauty and incredible weather.

What makes this townhome unique

Our golf club membership allows our guests to play for $50 and $75 in our resort. We we thrilled to get this unit new and choose custom paint, fans, lighting and high quality upscale furnishings! We feel this is our home away from home. We have many signed original artworks and unique pieces beyond what others use in vacation rentals. We offer a complementary concierge service.

Guestbook comments from the owner

It's our first time visiting Hawaii and staying at this villa made it enjoyable and confortable. The location of the resort made it convenient to go to many golf courses especially Kings and Beach, only 2 minutes away. We went to Volcano and had a chance to view many fantastic scenaries along the way.

We had a great time in Hawaii and staying here was a big part of it. Great location and very home-like.

Excellent Rental

  • 5 of 5

After 5 different rental units in the Waikoloa Beach Resorts we have found a keeper! This unit had everything we look for in a rental including an excellent variety of cooking equipment, great beach equipment including 6 chairs and 3 umbrellas, nice furnishings, and fast WiFi. The owners were great to work with and quickly responded to emails. We will definitely rent this unit again.

Sophisticated and comfortable home away from home

  • 5 of 5

This is the best place to stay on the whole island hands-down. It just keeps getting more beautiful every time we are here. The new tile floors and original artwork are way beyond anything seen in other vacation rentals. Very clean, too.

Some favorites were:

Happy hour 3-5 for drinks and pu-pus on the beach at Lava Lava in A-Bay.

Easy paddle boarding in the lagoon at the Hilton.

Very special dinner at Roy’s on a lake.

Island beef burgers at the Ultimate Burger in Kona. And of course, amazing golf for $50.
