This was our second visit to Hali'i Kai, but first time staying in one of Peggy's units. I have to say that we are hooked and spoiled by all of the extras that Peggy includes. It's gratifying that responses to any question are quickly forthcoming. It is obvious that Peggy cares that her renters have a positive experience.
Everything you will need is provided in the kitchen including food wraps, baggies, plastic storage containers, cleaning products, paper towels and napkins. Laundry detergent is supplied. There are two housecoats. There are enough toiletries to last a few days. There are lots of pillows to choose from. The mattress in the master bedroom is very comfortable (and I'm fussy on bed comfort). All ceiling fans and the air conditioner work well and are quiet.
Our favourite restaurants are Tommy Bahama at Mauna Lani, and Lavalava Beach Bar. Both have great happy hours as well.
For grocery deals go to Costco or Target. I also recommend the Waikoloa Village Market (not in the Waikoloa Beach resort area, as confusing as that is).
If you can swing it, take the 2-hour Blue Hawaiian helicopter circle island tour. Expensive, but you get the panoramic perspective that can only be seen from the air. I also highly recommend the manta ray night dive or snorkel. I dived with Big Island Divers at the airport site. This experience was mind-blowing!
We have already booked with Peggy for a return visit in March. We appreciate her high standards and attention to detail.
