About Jim Freitas

We live in California, but love to travel to the Big Island several times a year, and love having our villa, as our home-away-from-home. We enjoy the variety of beaches on the Big Island and cannot get enough of exploring new places and hidden beaches. We love to cook, so you'll find everything in our kitchen that you need to create fantastic island inspired meals. Our villa has boogie boards, snorkels & beach gear, tennis rackets, movies, and all kinds of games. We welcome you as our guests.

Jim Freitas purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Jim Freitas chose Puako

We like the Waikoloa Colony Villas for its spaciousness, award winning architectural design, and lush tropical landscaping. Waikoloa Beach Resort has a convenient central location for exploring the Island, with one of the best beaches on the Kohala Coast. We love the natural beauty of the island and the consistently warm weather.

What makes this townhome unique

With two pools, a tennis court, walking paths, exercise room, and meeting room, this is a wonderful complex for families, couples, singles, young and old. This newer complex is close to the Kings' Shops and Queens' Marketplace of the Waikoloa Resort. We also enjoy the close proximity to many of the best beaches in Hawaii.

Wonderfull stay at Jim's townhouse

  • 5 of 5

We all enjoyed our 9 day stay at Jim's townhouse in Waikoloa beach resort. It is located in great spot for island exploration which we took a full advantage of. Townhouse is well appointed, nicely decorated and located few steps from the main swimming/spa/BBQ area. Fantastic location!!. You feel like staying at your own place. Owner very east to deal with and responds to any query promptly. Big Island is a great place to explore and find your own adventure. We went scuba-diving, hiked Pololu valley, explored Hamakua coast, hiked to the waterfall, explored and snorkelled many beaches in close proximity to the accommodation. The only regret we have is that we could not stay any longer. Thank you Jim for hosting our family. We will be back, Mahalo.

Wonderful stay

  • 5 of 5

Great place! Location is wonderful - quiet, but near the resorts if you want to access their restaurants, etc. The public beach is just short drive away, nearer the entrance to the Waikola Beach complex. Shops are handy, with some access to groceries. More groceries are available in a larger store in Waikoloa Village, just a few miles away, or at the Shops at Mauna Lani, just a couple miles up the road. We walked and walked along the shoreline trail in several places, along the lava paths and the beaches. A walk south of the Waikoloa Beach takes you along some beautiful sand beach with very few people there, and it was glorious at sunset. We highly recommend spending time at Kiholo Bay a few miles south and Hapuna Beach a few miles north.

The condo is just as shown in the photos. Comfortable, quiet, right by a very nice pool (and close to the dumpster and recycling bin to make that chore easy!). The kitchen is very nicely outfitted with good quality dishes and cookware, everything you need to make and serve meals. We really appreciated the amply supplied spice rack and that guests are allowed to leave things like oil, mayo, mustard, etc, so those things can be shared and not wasted.

It's also very nice to have the beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, etc - not something we've found at every vacation rental. Soaps (dish, dishwasher, laundry) also. Many thoughtful touches here to make the stay easy and make guests feel right at home as soon as you arrive. So handy and much appreciated.

A lovely stay - sad to leave. Mahalo!

So many things wrong

  • 1 of 5

Please know that I have travelled to Waikoloa for many years and this is the worst experience I've ever had with a rental. The property is not well maintained nor cleaned properly. There is a definite smell of mildew in the upstairs washroom and it hasn't been deep cleaned in a very long while. We asked for it to be cleaned and were told it would cost us $100.00. We stayed for 35 days and got no discount whatsoever. We paid top dollar for a very average, unclean place. The owner never returned our calls of which there were at least six. We were told he was unwell with the flu but for 35 days? I don't think so. The air conditioning was an issue. The owner controls it remotely. The air conditioning would kick out before we woke up! Very annoying to have to get up and turn the AC on every single morning so you could sleep comfortably. The beach chairs were broken and useless. They were replaced after complaining but this should have been done before we got there. Also the Microwave was broken. It got fixed but we shouldn't have had to complain about it in order to get that done. You are not allowed to use the garbage disposal. You are given one pool/workout room key. Ridiculous! You not only need the key to get in the pool but you need it to get out. We asked for a second key but never received one. This means you are constantly having to coordinate with others. Not good. I would not recommend this place. The owner clearly does not care about the comfort and well being of his guests.

Owner's Response: It is our goal for all of our guests to enjoy their stay at our condo. Please note that the 5 Star Review above this one is the guest who checked in right after these guests checked out. The condo was in the exact same condition, yet the reviews couldn’t be further apart. They had a great time and wrote a positive 5 star review….. If you are really interested in what happened with these guests, you can read on….. How do you respond to a property review that does not reflect what really happened? We have rented to many guests and these were among the most difficult. It almost seemed like they set us up. They called me the second day and complained about everything. They demanded that I give them a large amount of money back or they would keep complaining and write a bad review. We believe this was unmerited and unreasonable, but unfortunately, this is what they chose to do. We did everything we could (cleaned the carpeting, re-cleaned the bathrooms twice, at no charge to them) to make these guests happy, but no matter what we did they just kept complaining. To be clear I charged them the exact same amount per night as every other guest staying in February for more than 2 weeks in the same villa has paid for the last 3 years. Essentially they wanted a ransom to not write a bad review….. This guest inaccurately states there was a lack of phone contact between us. Starting on day 2 we were in phone contact. In their review these guests make it seem like their complaining was the reason the built in microwave was replaced. In actuality the new stainless microwave was bought weeks earlier to be replaced, and was scheduled to be installed. However, this guest does not say in their review that there was a new replacement working microwave on the counter for their use the entire time. They were never without a working microwave. This villa has a Nest thermostat. The fact is that they asked me to change the program, over the phone, which I did for them. I only changed it that one time. The people who really got the worst of it were the poor cleaning staff. These guests would call all the time to complain and make demands. I would write much more, but the limit is 2500 characters…. We actually flew to Hawaii about a week after these guests left to see the villa for ourselves. The place was in great condition, but we just wanted to be sure. We knew then that these guests were merely trying to extract money from us.

Excellent location in a very clean condo!

  • 5 of 5

The unit was clean and close to everything. Jim was very responsive to fix the issue we had with the power in second bedroom going out. The pool was close which made it nice for a quick swim. We hope to come back again one day!
