About Irena Walker
We are from New Zealand and have been coming to the Waikoloa Beach Resort since we fell in love with it 20 years ago. Our children are now grown and they still love coming here and continuing the tradition of family holidays at our slice of Paradise. We always look forward to our time in Hawaii every year with our family.
Irena Walker purchased this Condo in 2005
Why Irena Walker chose Puako
Our family purchased at the Vista’s because the complex and resort area offer everything we wanted as a family, for great fun, sun and good security. The Condo is on the top floor, spacious, light and airy, with corner privacy and extensive views.
What makes this Condo unique
The two large lanai areas off the lounge provide wonderful outdoor areas for meals, coffee, lounging and taking in the views mountains, gardens and ocean. We can watch the moon rise over Mona Loa, and the last sun rays setting on the mountains in the distance. The wonderful starry night is a joy.

Great place for extended stay.
We had originally booked one of Irena's condo's but she said something wasn't right with it so she put us in another, E301. It had an ocean view just like the original one. It was very comfortable, enough that we could walk around in the dark and not stub a toe. We walked everywhere we could, though we did put 600 miles on the rental car. We even met Nikki, the "domestic engineer". She chatted with us about places to eat and places to go, as did Lillian via an email. Very informative people. I'd move to the big island tomorrow if we didn't have a wonderful farm in Idaho. That being said, the only downside of E301 is being right above the roadway. We live in the sticks and are not used to noise so we just shut the windows and sliders and used the A/C at night. And it's great that the A/C is hooked so if you open a sliding door it automatically turns off. How creative is that! We cooked in maybe 3 times and everything we needed was there. We left a few spices for the next guest, too. The beaches are close by. And we discovered there are mongooses near the anchialine ponds, which have lots of interesting fish and eels in them. It is a toss up which vacation was our favorite...this one on the big island or our trip to Alaska. The big island is my favorite of all and we can't wait to visit again. Don't forget to visit the botanical gardens near Hilo. It's a feast for the eyes. And the Hawaii Style café in Waimea. We hit that place twice. And the 808 café in Kona. Adobo rice is the ticket. And even if the volcano is no longer spouting off, Big Island Air gives a great plane trip around the entire island.
Everything about this property exceeded our expectations. The condo itself was comfortable, spacious, and had absolutely everything we needed. We hope to return to enjoy this beautiful part of the Big Island and stay here again!
Fantastic top floor condo: a real gem
This rental unit is a real gem. It is located on the top floor and has commanding views. The unit's finishes and furnishings are higher-end than the typical beach condo rental unit. It also is very well equipped, with a fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, shampoo, shower soap, etc. The entire unit was very clean. Although Lillian was out of town during our stay, she left a lovely note with helpful tips about the area and the unit itself. In summary, I would definitely recommend this unit to others. It stands out from the typical VRBO rental market.
We loved the condo. It had anything and everything we needed. We would definitely recommend to anyone. Walk to a beautiful beach and a few shopping centers too. The condo was well equipped and Lillian was great to work with.
Great place to stay
My husband and I visited the Big Island for our 10 year anniversary vacation, and we stayed at Vista Waikoloa F305.
Before we booked this property, Irene who is the owner of this condo replied kindly and quickly to all of my questions.
Lilian who helps geusts at the site, was very kind and helpful before and during our vacation. She provided recommendations for activities, beaches, and dining on the Island. She also arranged a late checkout for us because our flight left the Big Island late. I really appreciated this from both Irene and Lilian.
We loved Lava Lava Beach Club’s Happy hour. It’s waking distance from our condo. Exactly on the beach. We visited there 3 times!!
We loved A-Bay… the sunset was especially gorgeous! but we really loved the State Park at Hapuna Beach. We enjoyed body boarding there a lot!
This unit provided lots of stuff for the beach , such as beach chairs, umbrellas, body boards, snorkeling gear , a cooler box, beach towels…etc.!!
The condo was very comfortable. Much better than we expected. It felt like we stayed at home in paradise!! Especially the lanai was at the top of my list. We had papaya and coffee for breakfast every morning. The sunrise from Mauna Kea was breathtaking!
This complex was quiet, clean and in a very convenient location.
I definitely return to this place next time we have a chance to go to the beautiful Big Island again.
Beauty on top of the world! 🌴
It is with pleasure that I write my review! This property is exactly as presented in the photos...The 220 degree views from the adjoining lanais were the highlight!
We literally "lived outside"whenever we were at the unit!
My husband's fondest memory is sitting on the lanai with his coffee watching the sunrise every morning..glorious!
The location is in the center of the Waikoloa resort...
Walking to "A beach", markets, restaurants, Hilton, Marriott, etc is a breeze!
As for the unit...very clean, fully stocked kitchen items, beach towels, snorkel equipment, beach chairs and cooler. The beds, bedding, and towels are lovely.
Two TVs, stereo, Apple box, games. We enjoyed easy communication with the owners and property manager. Lillian met us when we arrived and provided keys and helpful information.
We will recommend this wonderful property to friends and family, and hope to return! 😎�Mahalo
This is a wonderful location as it almost never rains! Located about 25 minutes drive north of the airport, the island breezes keep you very comfortable. You are in walking distance of both the King's and Queens Shops which offer restaurants and food court as well as a upscale ABC Grocery Store. The world class Hapuna Beach, 69 Beach, and Mauna Kea are all but 15 minutes drive.
Great things we have enjoyed:
• Relaxing under a tree on the beach at A bay, beach 69, and Hapuna beach
• Zip lines
• Whale watching (winter only)
• Sunset sail from A bay
• Swim with dolphins
• Dolphin Quest at the Hilton
• Ride the boats and train at the Hilton
• Walk the Hilton art trails
• Visiting the public observatory on Mona Kea
• Helicopter ride
• Scuba diving
• Manta Ray dives
• Swimming in the beautiful ocean
