Let’s face it...life is just too hectic these days. Wouldn’t it be nice to have a “happy place” to retreat to?
Look no further. This Waikoloa Village condo near the Kohala coast of the Big Island of Hawaii is the perfect place to relax and recharge yourself. Your day could include lazy mornings on the 3rd story lanai watching the golfers play by….enjoying a round of discounted golf on the Robert Trent Jones, Jr. Waikoloa Village Golf Course…basking in the sun on one of many great beaches in the area and then rounding off the day by catching amazing sunset views from the lanai. The Kohala coast offers world class restaurants, exciting snorkeling adventures, scenic helicopter tours and easy access to Kilauea, the world’s longest continuously erupting volcano. Maybe you would rather just read a book or nap by the pool just several yards from the front door? However you enjoy relaxing – whether taking in Hawaii’s sites and culture, gazing at the tropical fish as you snorkel or scuba, or just laying in the sun – this condo will be your “happy place”. One guest recently blogged that she “swam with dolphins on Monday, turtles on Tuesday, an eel on Wednesday and whales on Thursday” as she and her family explored various snorkeling areas. While the Kohala coast is the sunniest place in Hawaii, Waikoloa usually has a nice breeze keeping the condo and you from getting too hot.
The luxurious accommodations include a full service kitchen with granite counter tops, two suites – one with a king sized bed and one with two twins with the option of making them into a king sized bed – central vacuum, cable TV – with a TV in every room, wireless internet, air conditioning, ceiling fans, a game/puzzle table with rolling stools, a comfortable sectional couch with amazingly comfortable pull-out queen bed and so much more.
What are you waiting for? Come find your “happy place” in relaxing Waikoloa Village.
Wonderful! We stayed here for our anniversary in May 2012 and decided we needed to go back.
Here we are again in April 2013! We flew non-stop Seattle - Kona and began relaxing as soon as we stepped off the plane. The air is warm and moist, but not too humid. The car rental and 30-minute drive to Waikoloa Village is perfect. The Kona side of the Big Island is barren and dry with the lava fields, but we felt right at home, being from Alaska with its tundra. The condo is relaxing from the moment you walk in. The property manager had the front door open with ceiling fans on and keys on the kitchen counter. We truly felt we were returning to…our home-away-from-home. Day 1: Hapuna beach, voted one of the best beaches in the US (It is the best all around beach for this condo: drive time, parking, crowds, clear water, fine sand, boogey boarding, etc.) Day 2: Mauna Kea Resort Hotel beach, least crowded (parking for non-guests is restricted to 40 spaces). Day 3: Kua Bay beach, clearest water and finest sand, not too crowded, depending on day of week. We never made it to Makalawena Beach, a remote beach with a required hike. Something to do next time!
The condo is great for golf; we don’t, but enjoyed the lanai which overlooks the golf course and Pacific Ocean. We slept with the doors and windows open with the birds, turkeys, and frogs chirping throughout the night. Coffee on the lanai with the local newspaper was a favorite activity. We spent 14 days here, and it felt like a home!
Night out: Huggo’s on the Rocks, Kailua-Kona; Lava-Lava Beach Club, Waikoloa Resort; Best dinner: Plantation Grill, Kawaihae;
Thank-you for letting us rent your condo! It was so quiet and the view from the deck was so calming and peaceful. Loved the three gecko's living in the wet bar!! The condo is perfect for one couple and even more so for two!! Big place and is much nicer than the pics!! HUGE deck. We loved it.
