It is perfectly situated to take advantage of tropical breezes and provides easy access to the green space and tropical gardens of Hali'i Kai. It is common to see whales, sea turtles, dolphins and a variety of wildlife.
Hali'i Kai Resort is the only condo complex on the Kohala Coast with its own on-site restaurant and bar, the Ocean Club …and it happens to be perfectly positioned on the oceanfront, for year-round sunsets and watching whales in season (December – March). As our guest at "Surf's Up" you will have full access to the Ocean Club with 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, featuring a large lagoon-style, multi-level swimming pool with a soothing waterfall and a heated lava rock spa with a sandy bottom. Small children will love the shallow pool play area. Enjoy the aqua loungers while sipping your preferred beverage. The recently renovated poolside bar and restaurant is a perfect place to enjoy a tropical cocktail, lunch and/or dinner while watching spectacular sunsets, breaching Humpback Whales or simply mingling with friends.
Other amenities include a state-of-the-art Exercise Cabana overlooking the ocean with treadmills, exercise bikes, elliptical trainers and free weights; a tennis court and basketball 1/2 court awaits your prowess.
Hali'i Kai’s prime ocean front location is beautifully landscaped and located next to the beautiful Waikoloa Beach Golf Course. Enjoy the nearby activities in the Waikoloa Beach Resort, including Anaeho’omalu Bay (A-Bay), two 18-hole championship golf courses, with others located in the immediate area, King’s Shops, Queen’s Marketplace, two world class spas, luau shows, assortment of restaurants and walking tours through petroglyph fields .
Beautiful, uncrowded, white sandy beaches are a 5 to 10 minutes’ drive away; sunbathe on the beach, swim, snorkel, scuba, beachcomb, or otherwise have fun walking along the beach.
The Big Island is very diverse with snowcapped mountains, active volcano, black and green sand beaches and lush tropical rain forests, and comprises 11 of the world’s climate zones making it a very unique place to sightsee. Drive into the Waipio Valley where horses freely roam. Trek through tropical rain forests to visit one of many waterfalls or just enjoy the tropical vegetation. Visit the Volcano’s National Park with the only active volcano in the United States. Swim and/or body board at the Magic Sands beach where the sand disappears and reappears yearly. See the World Famous Parker Ranch in the upcountry near Waimea where the paniolo (Hawaiian Cowboys) still tend to their cattle.
Our “Surf’s Up” Villa welcomes you to discover the magnificent, luxury and relaxing life style of Hali'i Kai, an ocean front Paradise.

About Adriana / Yuki
LUVA vacation rentals is a full service rental and property management company located in Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii.
Why Adriana / Yuki chose Puako
We looked at many villas in the area but it was Hali’i Kai that came out on top. The beautiful park-like setting, the open spaces with manicured lawns and tropical flowers, and most importantly, it was the Ocean Club that made Hali’i Kai number one. To be able to sit around the beautiful multi-level pool, listen to the waves, watching for whales and dolphins, or to work out in the exercise cabana while looking out to the ocean, you know that you have arrived in paradise. The sunsets are incredible and no two are ever alike, and maybe, if you are lucky, you might get to witness a ���Green Flash”. ( by Owner )
What makes this Condo unique
��Surf’s Up” is our home away from home and we have equipped it as such. We believe in quality and have incorporated this belief into everything we have put into our home; everything, from the beds, to the dishes, to the original works of art, to the toys we have for our guests to use and more. The freedom of the wide open spaces and seeing our grandchildren playing on the grass or at the swimming pool making friends with other children at the resort; sitting on the lanai enjoying a freshly brewed coffee in the morning, sun bathing and swimming at the pool, to the many outdoor activities that are available, there is always something to do or some new adventure to begin. Our hope is that our guests will enjoy their Hawaiian holiday and fall in love with Hali’i Kai and our home, and perhaps begin to call this special place their “Happy Place”. ( by Owner )

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We stayed here for 8 nights and 9 days and wish we could have just moved in :-) this unit is truly special and is so ready to go for your family whether you have little ones or older children this condo has it all. We will be going again and will for sure be staying here again!
Beautiful condo! The best VRBO we've ever stayed in.
This condo was beyond what we expected. Beautifully decorated and beyond immaculate. We also really appreciated the kitchen supplies ie. oils, spices, storage bags. It is hard when traveling to have to purchase those items knowing you will not use them all and cannot take them home. We spent many evenings on the beautiful back patio grilling and enjoying the mild hawaiian weather. The location is great. Close to Kings and Queens Markets (1 mile walk), 10 minutes from Hapuna and Mauna Kai beach (which our family loved).
The Halii Kai resort pool/club may be more suited to adults and retirees. The staff at the pool aggressively police's the pool and deck for any type of transgressions, so my kids were afraid to play (they got yelled at a few times for jumping in the pool). We will definitely look to return, but may try to rent direct from homeowners (which we thought was what VRBO was about). When you rent from the rental company, you pay their booking fee and also VRBO's new booking fee which added over $400 to our rental price. Kind of bummed about that.
Thank you so much for your kinds word. I certainly hope you and your family return soon.
Pool: Yes, Hali'i Kai Mgmt does have a strict "jumping" rule, but we hope you still had a great time.
We (Luva Real Estate) do not charge a booking fee, ours is only a credit card fee (4%).

Awesome home on an Awesome Island
Hali i Kai Surfs Up has it all!
We have used VRBO many times and Surf's Up was the best equipped and most organized place we have stayed. Everything from the quality and the comfort of the furnishings to the availability of water toys, beach chairs, umbrella's this place has it all.
The kitchen was extremely well equipped with everything you need regardless of the meal you want to prepare and the condiments available were an added bonus and much appreciated.
Our grandchildren were with us for part of the stay and they really enjoyed the pool area and the grassed area outside the patio. Oh ya the chocolate smoothies from the clubhouse were a hit too. The clubhouse/pool area is outstanding to relax and enjoy whale watching or the awesome sunsets and a quality meal. The staff here are outstanding.
Great place to stay hope to be back soon.
Thanks Rick and Wendy.
Great condo in great location
Condo was recently updated with new floors and decorations. Very comfortable furniture. Condo kitchen was furnished was supplied with just about everything you need for meal preparations. All the small appliances, cookware and utensils you would need. We had a great stay!
Exceptional in every way!
We visited with our family and were so impressed with the attention to every detail. The Waikaloa resort area is beautifully groomed and has most of the amenities we needed. The Hali'i Kai resort is beautiful and has an excellent pool, fitness center and beach club all located on the water. The condo was exceptionally clean and perfectly appointed. We have stayed in many VRBO rentals but this is the best one by far. The owners have thought of everything from beach toys, snorkels, boogy boards, beach chairs and more. We can't think of anything else they could have done to make it better.
Our third stay at Hali'i Kai and our first in this unit. It is absolutely the nicest furnished and best equipped of any we have stayed in. We do lots of cooking in so appreciated kitchen supplies including spices etc for use. And the sports closet was best equipped we have seen in any Hawaii condo stay. Highly recommend Hali'i Kai generally, excellent spot in Waikoloa, pool views can't be beat. And great clubhouse bar/gym with friendly staff. Rick and Luva Property Management excellent to deal with.
