About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Convertible bed(s), Sleeps 4

Our Premium Ocean-View villa has sweeping views of the Waikoloa Beach golf course and the magnificent Pacific Ocean. The sunsets from our lanai are breathtaking. Building 8 is considered by many to be the best building at Hali'i Kai due to the way it is angled, to take advantage of the golf course and ocean view.

The villa is a 2 bedroom, 2 full bath ground floor unit which sleeps up to 4 comfortably.

If you're considering the Golf Villas, Waikoloa Colony Villas, The Shores, Vista Waikoloa, Kolea, Fairway Villas or anything in Mauna Lani, make sure to look at Hali'i Kai.

You'll get use of the beautiful Hali'i Kai Beach Club with a gorgeous pool (small children will love the shallow pool play area), fitness room, lounge area, restaurant and bar--all with a cliff-side view of the ocean. One of the most beautiful places on earth! You may never want to leave the resort.

The Ocean Club resort is a members-only bar/restaurant available only to owners/renters of Hali'i Kai.

Hali'i Kai is located next to the famous Waikoloa golf course with the Hilton Waikoloa just across the golf course. The King's Shops and Queen's Shops provide restaurants and shopping within the resort area. There are many beaches close by to enjoy. Hali'i Kai is approximately 20 minutes from the Kona airport.

We are on the Kohala Coast, the sunniest of all the Hawaiian islands with 350+ days of sun per year.

Our Villa includes:

-High-quality furnishings.

-42-inch flat screen TVs/DVD players in the main room as well as each of the bedrooms.

-King-bed in Master Bedroom with a great ocean view.

-King bed in 2nd bedroom that can convert to 2 Twin XL beds.

-High Quality King Micro-fiber Sofa Sleeper in main room.

-The kitchen has granite counter-tops with new appliances and all you need to either cook your own meals or enjoy take-out on the lanai (this is where we eat most of our meals).

-A laundry room with a washer and dryer are also available in the unit.

-Weber BBQ on the Lanai.

-Free Wireless Internet.

-Telephone: Free calls to Mainland USA and Canada. Save on roaming charges.

-Beach chairs, Boogie boards, beach towels, snorkeling equipment and other amenities are provided for your convenience.

The Tennis Courts and Basketball Court are located in the resort as well, so bring your rackets!

During whale season (December-April) it's easy to see humpbacks swimming directly off the coast from the Ocean Club.

With sunsets off the horizon and the sounds of waves crashing in the background; it truly creates a pleasing and therapeutic environment for all to enjoy.

There is so much to do within just a few minutes (helicopter rides, beaches, luau's, shopping, fishing, golf, Whale-watching, Scuba, Snorkeling, incredible restaurants and so much more). The area and resort are truly ''hidden gems.'' Hali'i Kai provides a luxurious home base from which you can explore the entire Big Island and its many picturesque beaches. We will give guests great tips on where to eat, play and shop!

Sorry, no smoking or pets allowed. Smoking in resort is allowed in designated areas only.

Be advised, Hali'i Kai Resort collects a check-in fee of $10/day + tax for each reservation (this changes on 4/1/18 to $20/day + tax) regardless of whom the reservation is booked through. The check-in fee allows guests access to the property and Ocean Club facilities and includes electronic entry gate key card. This pricing can change at any time, without notice.

About Debbie Stofer

We pride ourselves in offering 'the little things' that set our accomodations apart from the rest. We live in Seattle and travel to Hawaii quarterly to make sure our villa is properly maintained.

Debbie Stofer purchased this villa in 2010

Why Debbie Stofer chose Puako

We love Hali'i Kai!!! After looking all along the western coasts, We bought two units (a townhome and villa). The peaceful neighborhood setting (not a high-rise) allows for privacy as well as plenty of space for families to relax. The Pool/Bar/Restaurant that overlooks the ocean is one of our favorite places on earth!

What makes this villa unique

The tropical setting of the resort is meticulously maintained. Flowers abound while the many types of beautiful Hawaiian birds call throughout the day.

The high-quality building materials used on the property make the condos feel like 'home away from home.' This resort will be our retirement home one day...

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had a wonderful stay at your beautiful condo (Hali Kai #8C). It far exceeded all of our expectations! The pictures on the website didn’t do it justice. We loved the tasteful furnishings, the upscale feel, the spotless interior and the breathtaking views. The Hali Kai complex felt like a five star resort, with brilliant ocean vistas and amazing amenities.

Thank you for creating such a superb Hawaiian getaway!!!

The Big Island is so beautiful. The condo was perfect for us! It was the right amount of room for my husband, son, and I. Loved the decor and location. My little quiet time was on the patio with the view of the golf course, palm trees, and the ocean. I went for morning walks and it was a perfect location to try different areas...around the resort area, along the ocean with lava rocks and paths along all the resorts and hotels, or just down to the sandy beach couple miles away for a nice morning walk. The condo had great amenities.....cable, wifi, nice furnishings, updated kitchen, amazing beds, plenty of bathroom space, laundry, parking, and a gas grill. Just a short walk away we could be at the pool with a bar and restaurant, and amazing sunset views. This rental surpassed all my expectations! The only negative.....that I actually have to go back home!!!

Thanks so much Jim and Debbie!!!!

Absolutely Amazing

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Hali'I Kai 8C and cannot recommend it enough. The unit and grounds exceeded our expectations. The condo itself is spacious, well decorated and had everything we needed and more. It was luxurious, but incredibly comfortable. A day at the beach was easy with the use of the provided beach chairs, towels, snorkel gear, toys and cooler. We enjoyed many morning cups of coffee and evening glasses of wine on the ocean view lanai while the kids tossed a ball on the grassy area. I was thrilled to find a Weber grill to use as well. The Hali'kai grounds were beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. Absolutely peaceful and beautiful. We enjoyed the well designed pool area that overlooks the ocean. It was fantastic to have food and drink available. The owner also had great recommendations for nearby activities, restaurants and shops. The location was perfect with amazing beaches just short drives away and plenty of activities if desired or a beautiful place to just stay and relax. We can't wait to go back!

Wonderful Big Island resort condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a long time looking through all the websites for all the many condos around Waikoloa and we struck gold with this condo at Hali-i Kai. Not only was the view gorgeous (had fresh Kona coffee every morning on our master bedroom lanai watching the sun come up with a great view of the ocean), but it was so well equiped that we spent most of our time at the condo or at the wonderful facilites that Hali'i Kai had. All the goodies you needed were supplied by the owner - boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach gear, coolers, etc. And you are very close to some of the best beaches on the island - no more than a 15 minute drive, so we were at the perfect place to decompress for a week.

The facilites are fantastic and the people are so friendly (thanks Craig and Karen). The grounds are immaculate and we never got tired of getting a Mai Tai and watching the sun go down with our feet in the hot tub. And the views from the pool area rivaled anything else we saw on the island. It's short walk on a path along the ocean to get to the Hilton if you want to take in the Dolphins or have a drink or a meal at a big resort, but when you get back to Hali'i Kai you really appreciate the laid back feel of the Big Island. (I think this trip has permanently converted me from a resort person to a condo person.)

We would definitely recommend this rental. Even though it was just the two of us on this trip, this unit had 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms and could easily handle a large family. The amenities (wi-fi, large flat screens, nice sound system) were excellent and the furnishings were first rate. We did a lot of our own cooking, so having a well equiped kitchen and gas grill was a requirement for us and they delivered.

The owners provided great recommendations for shopping, restaurants, beaches and sightseeing. Because of that, we ended up seeing hidden beaches tthat were off the beaten track that are some of our favorite memories. And we could have easily spent another week checking out more of their recommendations.

But thats ok, because we're planning on coming back! Doug and Kendra
