We owned a timeshare on Hawaii for over 20 years and we purchased this condo in Waikoloa based on years of experience. Close to the finest beaches in Hawaii. Minutes from the best scuba diving in all the Hawaiian Islands. I am a diver and have spent time diving all the other islands.
We love Waikoloa because of the small town atmosphere and trade winds. All the tourists bake in the heat down on the beaches, which you can do if that floats your boat. Rule of thumb on Hawaii is the longer you live on the island the farther up the mountain you live to get the perfect temperature.
Hawaii has everything any of the other islands have only better and larger.
Farmers markets. (Large tropical bouquets for $10.) Fresh fruits and vegetables in abundance in Kona and Hilo markets.
No other island has the active Volcano, which is a must do item.
Our condo is fully furnished. Save the cost of eating out so you can do some of the fun outings on the island. Things you never think of to make your vacation the best ever. Cooler, beach chairs, boogie boards, and swim noodles are things you will pay extra for at a hotel.
We will also provide you with detailed local knowledge so your stay will be memorable. What beaches are worth the drive, where to see turtles every time, should you go to the green sand beach, where to buy gas are just some of the items that will save you time and money.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011
We chose Waikoloa because it is near everything and just far enough away from all the tourist hustle and bustle.
It is also up the mountain a little so the weather is perfect.
We love the pool area where we can play a little cribbage in the afternoon, enjoy a gin and tonic, and flop in the water every once and awhile.
Communication with the owner is very good and prompt. The condo is very clean and uncluttered. It was nice to have empty closets and drawer which is not always the case with some VRBO units. The condo was well equipped and I guess the best recommendation is we would rent it again.
Aloha from experienced guest. We love Waikoloa and location of your home because it provides many conveniences. We were in close driving distance to many white sandy beaches and for traveling to other parts of the Island. Condo was stocked with everything we needed for cooking, comfortable sleeping arrangements, Ceiling fans thru-out condo, beach items, and condiments. Our daughter enjoyed seeing wild but tamed ducks and turkeys walking around the property. She didn't try to pet them but we came within 5 feet. It was also very convenient having a laundry facility in the Condo and public laundry facility close by. One morning while cooking breakfast we needed a few items and being so close to a full service grocery store made it very easy it also had yummy papayas that went well with our breakfast. We look forward to our next visit. Mahalo!
A great location for all sites on the dry side of the island and for launching trips to the rainy side. Actually did not have much rain on either side. Both of us are retired teachers and enjoyed all the sites we managed to visit. A week was just not enough. The condo was great for independent minded people like us, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Kitchen was adequate as we ate out a lot and furniture in living room was comfortable for reading or tv. The washer and dryer were appreciated. We received good advice from the owner about car rental, etc. You will need a car. The market in the village has everything you need. The pool and the hot tub for the condo complex are available from 8 am to 8 pm and never crowded. We often had them to ourselves. The condo is well stocked with towels, including beach towels. We would make a few recommenations: the master bath could be cleaner and there needs to be an extra roll of toilet tissue in each bathroom. The beds in the front bedroom would be ok for kids but are kind of lumpy for adults. All things considered, it was a great place to stay for a vacation and I would use it again.
Great location, and very reasonable. Since i was born and raised on the Island, i know it is close to all nice Beaches and attractions. My wife, 8yr. old Grandson, and i loved this Condo. It had all the things that we needed, well stocked with all the amenities. It was very clean, with nice furniture, and comfortable Beds. No bugs or ants, which is very unusual for that area, except for Geckos that we left outside on the deck. The owner was great and answered all of my Questions. He kept in contact with me from the time i booked this place. I would recommend this place to any family or friends. We had a great time at the beach, and the pool was not crowded, most of the time it was only us. Also it is very quiet with friendly neighbors.
This is the 3rd year we have used this condo. We really like its central location to all parts of the Island (except the southern tip). This is an economimcal unit that allows you access to all the best parts of the Big Island. You are a 1.25 hour drive from Hilo on the new Saddle Road highway over the volcano. You are one hour from Hawi town on the North Coast. You are minutes away from the best beaches on the Island (Hapuna is our favorite). You are about 40 minutes from Kona.
We like to use the kitchen to prepare our breakfast and lunches. We will dinner out a few times but will also use the BBQ by the pool (good cooling swim before bed) to cook Ono and Ahi steaks from Costco! The market at Waikoloa Village has great Hawaiian Poke which we loved (for those who like sushi/raw fish).
Because of the central location, we were able to easily take in the best the Island has to offer on both sides.
Just spent 2 weeks in this wonderful suite. The appointments are exactly as pictured. Everything works! The master bed was comfortable (did not use the other bedroom, but looked just fine). All the extras made the stay even better.
The shopping Village supermarket is just up the road and has all you need -- at good prices. The post office is across the intersection from the Village.
The location is very central to enjoying the whole island: North Coast- Hawi, Hilo, Volcanoes Natl Park, coffee plantations, Kileau-Kona and the great beaches just 6mi (10 min.) down the hill on the coast.
We definitely would return. Thanks to the hosts! They have done it right!
