Welcome to our cozy, peaceful retreat at the Shores of Waikoloa. Unit 108 or ZenBeachCondo as we have recently nicknamed it is located at ground level in the Sandalwood Tower with a wonderful wrap around lanai perfect for sunbathing and curling up with your favorite novel. Here you are surrounded by Areca palms, red Ti leaves, ginger and other tropical foliage that make it private and cozy.
The interior of the condo has been recently remodeled and is modern,clean, tastefully furnished and accented with treasures we have collected on our travels.
This is a great place to relax with all the comforts of home and at the same time feel the tropical beauty of Hawaii.
The remodel includes new floorings throughout, new kitchen appliances, granite counters in kitchen and both bathrooms and a new, oversized walk in shower in the master bath.
The living room offers comfy, tropical furniture, a new flat screen TV for your entertainment needs and of course free high speed internet. In additions there is a blue ray DVD player ready to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc., and a stereo with CD player and Ipod/ phone dock.
The dining area seats four people and looks out towards Mauna Kea summit. There is additional seating for 2 at the kitchen bar.
The modern kitchen has all new appliances, oven with separate broiler compartment, glass cooktop, all stainless dishwasher, deep double stainless sink, side-by-side fridge/ freezer with ice dispenser and filtered water and a microwave . In addition we offer an electric kettle, drip coffee maker, Bodum coffee press, Mocca stove to espresso maker, teapot, blender, rice cooker, toaster and a full set of dishes, glasses, flatware, pots and pans and other cooking utensils.

The outside Lanai has two chaise lounges for sunbathing and a wicker seating group perfect for enjoying an evening cocktail.
The unit has AC throughout, but often it is not needed, specially in the evening since you get nice breezes that bring the floral smells of tropics into your home.
The Shores is a unique beachside community located between the ocean and 2 Championship golf courses and adjacent to dining and shopping and recreation all within walking distance .Here you are surrounded by mature tropical landscaping, ponds and waterfalls and it is quiet with a low building density.

Many dining and shopping options are within walking distance ( or a short drive) at the King's Shops, the Queen's shops, The Hilton Waikoloa, The Waikoloa Mariott. Roy's and Merriemans Market Cafe' are our personal favorites.
The Shops at Mauna Lani are about 3 miles away and offer a Tommy Bahamas Restaurant as well as Monstera a great Japanese food venue.

We sailed to Hawaii from the South Pacific in 1991 and the Island welcomed us so much that we are still here today! We love to travel and explore new places preferably from a nice , home-like base. We used our travel experiences to create a welcoming home away from home for you.
We are woodworkers by trade and have included our expertise as well as our love for detail and beauty into our properties.
We love local food and cooking so our kitchen is well equipped.

We have other vacation rental properties in Hawi
( HomeAway #336353 and #346161) on the North end of the Big Island in the county side, but we really do enjoy our time near the beach and we love the apartment at the Sandalwood Tower and the Shores at Waikoloa because it is quiet , peaceful, with beautifully landscaped grounds and within walking distance to the beach and good dining.

My husband and I had never been to Hawaii before and had very little knowledge of what to expect. We felt really fortunate to have found such a beautiful spot to call home for the week. This Zen retreat provided us with not only a central base from which to explore the Island on our day trips, but an exceedingly comfortable oasis to return to in the evenings. Kirsten offered helpful suggestions to make our stay optimal, and gave us plenty of privacy. We would defiantly stay here again, and highly recommend this property, with its extensive and luxurious amenities, to all of our friends and relatives.
More than pleased with the condo. Clean, pretty, bed was beyond comfortable. Lanai was surrounded by palms, which gave it privacy, since it's on the first floor. Had everything we could want for extras, beach chairs etc. We suggest food shopping at the Safeway, about 6 miles south of the airport, then head north to the facility. Really enjoyed eating at Lava Lava restaurant, with our feet in the sand, less than a mile away. Shopping was awesome, a 15 to 20 minute walk to Kings and Queens Malls which have everything one could want from food to upscale merchandise. We really liked the place and would highly recommend it ....Terri and Mike
This condo was spotless and everything was in good working order. It was in a quiet location and in a secure, gated community. The king bed was very comfortable. A nice pool was across the street. While the condo was adjacent to the parking lot, it was well hidden by lush tropical plants. Kerstin was very helpful and friendly. The location was ideal for us, centrally located between the nice northern and southern beaches. The pricing was reasonable and our $200 security deposit was returned immediately after we left. I'd recommend this property to others and we'd rent here again next time we visit Hawaii.
Zen Beach Condo is fabulous! It is in a great location for exploring the Kohala Coast and close to amazing beaches. The king size bed is super comfy with a memory foam mattress. Having two bathrooms is a big plus and the kitchen is modern and beautiful. We enjoyed the internet ready TV and watch whatever we wanted via the internet. The pool was awesome and we had it to ourselves almost every night. Kerstin is so great and was always there if we needed her. I would highly recommend this condo.
I was extremely happy with everything, the condo, the communication, location, and the quiet surroundings. The landscaping was lovely, the pool and barbeque area well maintained. The condo had everything you needed, and the appliances were modern and worked perfectly. The be was comfortable and the shower wonderful. So relaxing, I didn't want to leave
We were absolutely thrilled with our accommodations & the service we received from Kirsten, owner.
Kirsten was responsive & accommodating in helping us manage details for our stay. Our first night we entered an inviting home with a pineapple picked just for us from the owners' garden resting in a bowl, a personal note welcoming us and a guide journal directing us to local dining options with a hand-woven lei draped across it.
A beautiful wooden bench at entry and two wooden stools at the breakfast bar, a granite counter top, tastefully appointed dining area, quaint bedroom (with a bed that was like sleeping on a cloud), spacious walk-in shower and vanity area, lovely bamboo furniture, faux candles, craft pieces, tile floors, ceiling fans in front and bedrooms and a palm graced wrap-around lanai welcomed us with open arms into an intimate romantic paradise.
The generous pool and jacuzzi area is a minute's stroll, literally, from the condo with a barbecue area resting along side. The Shores' expansive grounds are lavishly landscaped and finely maintained with ponds and palms and wonderfully fragrant tropical flowers through-out.
After our arrival Kirsten contacted us to be sure we were happy with everything & remind us she was only a phone call away though everything was so perfect there was no need to call. The condo was clean & ordered, even had a blender for Pina Coladas and Pina Colada glasses.
The Shores is nestled in the Waikoloa Beach Resort community with shopping, beaches for swimming & snorkeling in the blue ocean or just relaxing, dining & a variety of entertainment all just minutes away.
We'll be back & we highly recommend this lovely condo to others looking for a little piece of paradise too!
Other recommendations: Floating on your back in the pool at night with palm trees gently swaying nearby as you gaze at the star-studded Hawaiian sky, Truffled lobster mac and cheese and the Tuscan burger from the bar menu at Pueo's Osteria located in the Waikoloa Village and serving till midnight, dinner on the beach with flaming tiki torches & live music just steps from the ocean at the Lava Lava Beach Club, a helicopter tour, the Fair Winds breakfast & lunch 5-hour snorkel & snubba (like scubba but easier) diving cruise, a drive to Hawi for dining at the Bamboo, the City of Refuge & the trip there through lush tropical rain forest & an in-condo message from Tiare, ask for Beth!
We hope your vacation is as wonderful as ours was. Aloha!!
