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

What makes this condo unique

Cooling-off and relaxing at The Shores swimming pool and spa. Lounging and eating meals on our spacious lanai while watching the sunset. Playing tennis at our courts or using the well equipped exercise room. Snorkeling with the turtles in the Hilton Lagoon.

Taking in the open air nightly entertainment at the Shops. Happy Hour with an appetizer at the Lava Lava Club on A-Bay watching the sunset with our feet in the sand.

We are 10 minutes walk to everything that happens here, the shops, beaches and restaurants !

Nice location with view of ocean and golf course

  • 5 of 5

I was in the area for a conference and chose to stay here over a fancy hotel.

The unit was lovely and there was a nice big balcony with a table and chairs as well lounge chairs. It was quiet which was great. You could easily walk to beach and shops. Nice sunsets could be seen just a short walk away to a rocky shore. The pool area was nice with adequate seating and parking was easy. Updated kitchen was stocked well for cooking.

Everything you need!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming to the islands for 30 years and this was one of our favorite rentals! The owners have thought of everything from a comfortable bed; complete kitchen; a great tv system and a spacious lanai. The location makes it a great spot as it’s close to restaurants and beaches yet it’s very quiet. Loved it and we will be back!

Beautiful and comfortable place to have a relaxing vacation

  • 5 of 5

Really beautiful condo in a nice complex, has been recently renovated, clean, comfortable, stocked with everything needed, including some extras (olive oil, rice, salt, pepper, plastic wrap, aluminum foil, plastic containers, etc.).

The host is very responsive, would call quickly when I left a VM, replied to my emails promptly.

Good location: few minutes in a car to the closest beach near Marriott, few minutes to the nearby supermarket, shops and restaurants.

We'd be happy to stay in this place next time!

Great value on a great condo

  • 4 of 5

We've stayed at many vacation rentals over the years and have high expectations. The Shores met them and more - it had everything you need for a stress free vacation. The owner's pictures on the site are true representation. We were impressed by the small details. The kitchen was well stocked (they had a toaster, coffee maker, blender and a rice cooker). They also had foil, sandwich bags, and tupperware for guests. The large wrap around lanai was beautiful. We spent each morning outside for breakfast and enjoyed a few dinners. This is actually a 2 bedroom unit where guests have access to one of the bedrooms. This means that you get the extra living space vs. a typical 1 bedroom unit. Note that the bed is slightly soft for those who prefer a firmer mattress. The entire Shores property was well maintained - there was even some landscaping construction the week we were there. Since were were out chilling at the beach most afternoons, it did not affect us. We appreciated the beach accessories provided by the owners. The cooler, chairs, bodyboards, and umbrellas were all in good condition (snorkeling gear was also provided, but we opted to use our own). There was plenty of parking, even if someone happens to take the reserved spot. We do not hesitate to recommend this condo - enjoy your stay! Mahalo.

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.
