Our kitchen has been redone with top-of-the-line Thermador appliances. We have a LARGE 42' Flat Screen TV in the livingroom and a 32' Flat Screen TV in the Master. This condo is a LARGE beautiful TWO bedroom, TWO bathroom condo with a fully equipped kitchen. two TV's (flat screen, 42' and 32'). We have included a popcorn popper, rice maker, blender, coffee grinder, beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, chairs, sand toys, etc. Our condo is in a lush green complex bordered by a ONE of kind golf course. Queens Shops and Kings Shops are steps away. A-Bay is only a 10 minute walk away. This is the BEST location on the island. Walk to everything. Wow what a GREAT place.

WE love the Big Island and have traveled here for over two decades. The Vista is the place we always came to stay...... so we decided to purchase here. This is the best location with the best people.
Trisha Trisha purchased this condo in 2008
This is the Best Location on the island. We are walking distance to the Beach, Shops, Starbucks, Restaurants, The Hilton Dolphin Quest, and the Marriott. Also, the Waikoloa Beach Resort area has some of the BEST weather on the island.
Close to everything. Shops, Restaurants, Beaches, Starbucks, Hilton Dolphins, Waikoloa Marriott, and everything else. This is an end unit so it is one of the quietest units in our complex. Centrally located by the gym and pool and cabana. Just can't get any better than this.
Great pre-visit information, found condo with no problem and instructions for navigating community gate, parking lot, front door key were all on target. Incredible, relaxing, well situated condo that is furnished and supplied with everything you need to relax for a few days or use as a base of operations to explore the Kona Coast. The condo was clean, well maintained, the owner checked to see if everything was OK, and strong recommendation for anyone staying in the area.
Easy 5-10 minute walk to A-Bay Beach or the historic fish ponds. Plenty to explore in the area with petroglyphs, fisherman's path along the coast, and historic village ruins. Convenient short drive to more northern beaches and south to City or Cpt Cook's Bay and Memorial (great snorkeling - rent a kayak).
Only downside - be prepared to carry luggage up 2 flights and we tried to help the owner with the electrical bill by not using the A/C, but it was pretty warm - just bareable with ceiling fans and all the doors and windows open.
The condo project is gated and called Vista Waikoloa. The suite is beautiful. The pictures are very accurate. The 8 foot Travertine dining table and end table are gorgeous. Our Garmin took us right there. Induction cook top, microwave, full size fridge, oven, lots of spices, knives, plates, wine glasses and such. All you could ever need. Washer and dryer combo unit with soap worked well. Condo is unusual in the fact it has several giant three pane windows with the middle unit you can open with a sliding screen door for great breeze. Probably 1/3 of the unit you can open to glass to see outside. If you want privacy, there are wooden sliders you can close. There is a code at the gate, and pool which are different, and a code for the fitness facility, but the fitness facility was never locked. There is a small bathroom type scale in the fitness center we used to weigh our bags. Just write down the key box code, pool code, and front gate code and you are set when you head out. We drove to the Marriott and utilized their public parking which is not really marked, but it is shown with a P on the provided condo maps. You walk to the A-bay beach next to the Marriott and come out by the volleyball nets. Best A bay snorkeling was just out from the volleyball nets. There are lots of chairs on both sides and palm trees on both sides. Some areas the water was a little cloudy, as the snorkeling at Captain Cook, and other area were all better. Still a good free beach and a must visit as it is right there. We did like the small cooler, the beach roll up pads were nice as well. There is only one set of fins though. We drove to Mauna Kea Beach at 8am and there were only about 3-4 other cars there for the 40 free spots. When we left close to 11am there were only 3 spots left, so come early to guarantee a spot. It was a really smooth and wonderful beach with excellent snorkeling by the rocks opposite the hotel. We got some supplies at the suggested Waikoloa market about 8 miles away. We did the island breeze luau at King Kamehameha hotel. Food and show were really good. There is free parking nearby if you look at the provided maps in the condo book. Also did a dinner cruise from Kona and it was ok. The Luau had better food and was more fun than the dinner cruise. The Vista unit grounds are beautiful with the flowering trees, and plants, and the entire Waikoloa area looks spectacular. What a bargain.
My friends and I initially booked this place to stay in. While I cannot vouch for the actual residence (we ended up cancelling the reservation), I would like to say that Trisha was WONDERFUL to work with! She always promptly answered my questions and made sure I knew she was available to help me out in any way. I hope to some day make it there and be able to use this rental!
This unit was great! Everything we needed was there. My wife and I enjoyed getting up early and watching the sunrise which was exceptional when the volcano wasn't doing its normal thing. But even with the activity, the sunrises were good. The gym was on of my favorites and the pool was one of wife's . After sightseeing, (and we did a lot) we returned to to your unit and "crashed" to get ready for the next day. We had an excellent mixture of eating out and cooking in. I suppose what we liked best about your unit was that it felt like "home" and not like a hotel room or rented condo.
If we are fortunate enough to vist the Big Island again, we want to stay in unit 301.
We came to the Big Island for our wedding and stayed at the condo the entire time we were on the island. By staying at the condo we were able to share the unit with the best man and his wife and we didn't feel cramped in the condo as there is a lot of room and privacy when needed. The pictures do not do this place justice! The home is so much MORE beautiful than the photos. Please do not look anywhere else, this is the best you will find. Of the other 25 people that joined us on our destination wedding, we had the nicest place to stay. This includes the several big resorts, other condos, and even a beach house in Kona! This is the BEST place to stay.
I cannot tell you how much we enjoyed the condo! We felt like we were home and had everything we needed while we were there. We used the BBQ, cooked in the kitchen, spent mornings on the lanai, used the pool and hot tub, and everything else. We loved having the boogie boards and beach toys to take to the beach. I absolutely love the Waikoloa community. We walked to the shopping centers and the beach.
This is the first time that we've rented a condo from an owner versus a hotel and I cannot tell you how perfect that was for us. The owner was very friendly and had a fast response time to any questions I had prior to arriving as well a during our trip. Overall we had an amazing experience.
This home away from home was fantastic! A kitchen full of spices and nicely equipped, comfortable furniture, beautiful huge deck, and wonderful clean pool. Everything was very comfortable and had all the extra perks for the beach. We really loved the central location on the sunny side of the island within walking distance to a nice shopping mall, restaurants, and the beach. You could walk for miles or drive to either end of the island for activities with plenty of time for play. The Big Island is a favorite of ours with plenty to do, and the beaches are wonderful because they are not as crowded as other islands!
Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
