About Simon Williams

My parents have lived in Hilo on the other side of the Big Island, for 30 years. My wife, 2 daughters and I are from Victoria, Canada and have been coming here all that time. We love the ocean and weather here and are thrilled to be a part of Waikoloa Beach now that we are retired.

Simon Williams purchased this condo in 2012

Luxury stay at an affordable price!

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and upscale condo unit. I have stayed in several places before and this one ranks right up there. Very spacious for 1-2 people. Lots of utensils and dishes in the updated kitchen. Bathroom was lovely with the huge walkin shower and large shower head. Bed was comfortable. Ceiling fans everywhere. There is AC but it is on a 6 hr switch so that it doesn't run when no one is there. Did I mention there's an elevator? Was that ever a lifesaver with groceries, beach stuff and suitcases. The condo unit is set on a golf course. Nice landscaping with grills in several spots. Pool was lovely. Liked the gated community security. The Shores is in Waikoloa Beach resort so it was an nice walk to shops and hotels and A. Bay beach. Of course, you could drive also. Lots of parking and good places to eat out. Groceries can be expensive here so buy at Walmart, Safeway or Costco in Kailua which is only 17 miles south of here. There is also a larger grocery store in Waikoloa Village which is about 7 miles away. This was a great home base as I drove all over the western and northern part of the big island. Many tour groups also picked up in Waikoloa so it was very convenient. The owner of this condo was very quick to answer concerns and questions. Plus, there is a local concierge who is local and only a phone call away. They were both wonderful when I got locked out of the condo on the first night. They take great care of this condo and expect all visitors to do so, also. Highly recommend staying at this unit.

The best VRBO property I've ever stayed at

  • 5 of 5

The condo is new, well kept, clean, incredibly spacious, and luxurious. The kitchen is so well equipped that one could make dinner for guests. The lanai is huge. The furniture is as good as new, clean, and comfortable. The whole condominium complex is spotless, with manicured lawns and plants. A plus for me is that the property is within walking distance of the Hilton Waikoloa Village, where I was attending a conference for part of my stay, which was for a week. Beaches and shopping malls are within easy reach. This would be my top choice for staying on my next trip to the Big Island.

A wonderful home away from home

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay here. It is very comfortable, spacious, clean and very well equipped. If your looking for a day at the beach, chairs, beach mats, cooler, boogie boards, noodles, etc. are all there. Wanting to make a home cooked meal? You'll find all that you need in this well-stocked kitchen. The huge lanai is an added bonus. The unit is conveniently located, close to shopping, restaurants and great beaches. I would stay there again if I return to the big island.

Location, Quiet, Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I came to the big island to attend a wedding and have a vacation. We stayed 9 nights and would have stayed longer if we could. This condo was an excellent place to stay. Very close to Kings & Queen shops, Lava Lava Beach club, Tropics Ale house all of which you can walk to if it isn't too hot. A short drive takes you to beautiful Hapuna Beach and other beautiful beaches in the area. Condo has well equipped kitchen with everything you need to prepare meals (we only cooked breakfast there). Loved having the cooler for trips to the beach and the beach chairs and towels were great. Bed is comfortable as well as living room furniture (I fell asleep in the chair one evening). Loved using the overhead fans as well as the air conditioner when needed to keep the place cool. Lanai would have been used more often but it was just too hot when we were there. We did enjoy it in the evening to watch the sunset. We were amazed at how peaceful and quiet it is at The Shores. Simon is great to work with and very responsive. If we come back to the Big Island we would stay here again.

Fabulous Getaway

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed in this condo from September 21 - 29. It was our first time to the Big Island, and the first time we had rented a condo unit anywhere. We understood from locals that this had been one of the hottest summers on record, and the week we were there was one of the hottest weeks of the summer. The temps were in the 90’s most days, with no Trade Winds. However, the condo proved to be a comfortable, cool haven for us in the evening after each day of activities. Air conditioning was a must during our stay, and we were very thankful it worked wonderfully.

By morning it would cool down enough outside to have breakfast out on the lanai. We ate breakfast there each morning as a relaxing start to our day. Activities included swimming and boogie boarding at beautiful Hapuna Beach. We snorkeled at Two-step, kayaked and snorkeled with the dolphins at Captain Cook's Bay, toured the windward side of the island and the volcanoes, and snorkeled with the manta rays at night with Big Island Divers.

It was always nice returning to the condo each evening, our home away from home. The condo is well-appointed, attractive, and stocked with everything we needed (except food and beverages, of course). Simon, the owner was very attentive to our needs, and got back to us in short order when we contacted him. He was very pleasant to work with. Following the instructions provided, we left the condo clean, and received our entire deposit back. When we think of our stay there, we will always have pleasant memories.
