"We fully enjoyed our stay at Hali'i Kai 10B! This was our sixth trip to the Big Island over 15 years or so, and #10B at Hali'i' Kai was a perfect spot for our family's vacation. We knew from previous trips that we like to stay in the South Kohala Coast area on the Big Island for the proximity to our favorite beaches, so Hali'i Kai had a perfect location for visits to the beach, but also for shopping and dining. We thoroughly enjoyed staying at Hali'i Kai because it has the best of both worlds-- the privacy and space of renting a condo, but the resort-like pool and poolside restaurant and bar made us feel pampered too. The service at the poolside restaurant was really friendly and accommodating.
10B has a great location within Hali'i Kai as you can walk over to the pool easily, but you're not so close that people are constantly walking past. We loved being on the ground level with our two active kids because they could easily run out and play on the grass in front of the lanai, while we enjoyed our coffee or cocktails and the view of the ocean while sitting on the lanai. Everyone we met at Hali'i Kai, whether renters, owners or staff were super friendly. A favorite memory of this visit was our kids making friends with the kids from the unit next door and playing "Sunset Soccer" in the evenings.
We loved how well stocked 10B is kept! The kitchen had plastic wrap, ziplocs, as well as oil and spices. Laundry detergent was also supplied, which was awesome. One of our favorite features of staying at 10B is that you can use the supplied boogie boards, sand toys, Tommy Bahama Beach chairs, beach towels, a beach umbrella, cooler or an insulated bag which was perfect for packing sandwiches and drinks for a beach picnic. The sheets on the beds and the towels in the bathroom were nice quality, and overall, the feel of the condo was very clean and home-like. There was plenty of space for our family of four to relax and enjoy our vacation.
One of the features of 10B that we appreciated was the covered carport parking space. It was such a relief to have the car stay cooler in the shade-- not all the units offer covered parking!
We will definitely stay in 10B again, and would fully recommend staying at Hali'i Kai 10B to our family and friends."
