After working in the San Francisco Bay Area for 20 years, we retired to the Big Island in 2010 to pursue our dreams. We raise sheep and grow veggies and fruit on a small farm on the Hamakua Coast just north of Hilo.
We live here, and so appreciate all the Big Island has to offer, we're pleased to share information about all the fantastic places to explore.
After purchasing our home, we made substantial improvements before listing it as a vacation rental. We manage the property ourselves and take pride in offering a lovely home for our guests. As travelers, we've stayed in vacation rentals, with varied levels of satisfaction. Based on our experiences, we've tried to ensure we've furnished our home for a comfortable and pleasurable stay. We're very pleased with the feedback we're receiving as well as the repeat bookings.
We hope you'll enjoy spending time at our Waikoloa Village vacation home as much as we do.
Jane Simon purchased this house in 2012
We purchased our Waikoloa Village vacation home because of it's wonderful year round weather and proximity to our favorite beaches Kohala Coast beaches. We enjoy swimming in the turquoise waters, snorkeling among sea turtles, tropical fish and colorful coral reefs. Picnicing, lounging and reading on the beach all come in a close second.
We're drawn to the home's inviting indoor/outdoor spaces. At day's end, we're on the lanai with cool drinks in hand watching the sunset colors unfold. We enjoy the mature tropical landscaping with palms, plumeria and avocado and banana.
We like having a house rather than a condominium. The location on a quiet cul-de-sac feels private. Our neighbors are full time residents. While our home is located only 35 minutes north of the Kona airport and Costco, we appreciate being away from the congestion of Kailua-Kona.
Why stay in a condo when you can rent a private home? The mature landscaping and location on a quiet cul-de-sac make for a private feel. You'll find an open floor plan with newer (2012) bamboo and tile flooring. New leather sectional, screened lanai and nice outdoor furnishings
Splendid view of the Kohala Mountains and dramatic colors at sunset. Maui can often be seen looming above the horizon
Swim and snorkel the best beaches, explore the charming Kohala Coast plantation towns, and enjoy all the Big Island has to offer at a fraction of the cost.
The house is great, everything you could possibly want!
We traveled as 2 couples, and the floor plan is perfect for this: each couple had a bedroom (with closet) and a bathroom.
We absolutely loved being able to enjoy our meals on the porch, watch the geckos bask in the sun and listen to the birds sing.
Imagine drinking a cold beer while laying in the hammock browsing the internets! I did that! While the others were preparing the meats on the grill. Yes there is a grill.
As other reviewers already mentioned, the house has everything you need.
The owners were VERY responsive, we texted / emailed each other while on the island, they made us feel comfortable and welcome.
I cannot stress this enough: if ever I'll be on the Big Island again, this is the place I would choose.
If you are reading this review, rest assured - you will love it.
This was the first time my family and I have stayed over in Waikoloa. The house is charming, cozy and felt like home away from home. Everything you need to make your stay comfortable is there, plus, the neighborhood is very quite. You're just minutes from the beach, local farmers markets and some great eats. We had so much fun staying there and look forward in the future, to coming back again. I would highly recommend this VRBO for your next getaway!!
This is an extremely comfortable house in good location away from the congestion of Kailua-Kona and the Kohala resorts. Easy access to Waimea (try Kahilu Theatre, Wednesday market at Parker Stables, and Five Mountain Fitness, tucked away behind the Tropical Dreams factory), Honokaa and Waipio Valley, or the new Saddle Rd. As well, of course, to the Kohala and Kona beaches! Owners continue to add to the enjoyable experience at this house (for the beach: plenty of beach towels, 4 beach chairs, 2 umbrellas, 2 cooler bags, various toys and snorkelling equipment). There are several sets of dishes and lots of glasses along with a large capacity dishwasher so you never run out of dishes. Lots of convenience items in the kitchen (toaster oven, microwave, icemaker, good selection of knives, Cuisinart coffeemaker, blender, salad spinner, etc., plus some spices and useful, basic supplies. Newly painted exterior, new slings on screened lanai chairs, new chairs on lanai outside front bedroom. Gardeners come frequently so yard is always a beautiful tropical setting. If you plan to play several rounds of golf at the Waikoloa Village course, inquire about their 4-play card. Try the new vegan/raw restaurant, Under the Bodhi Tree (7am to 7pm), near Ruth's Chris at Mauna Lani shops. Very good even for carnivores. Stephen, the owner, was head chef at the Fairmont Orchid for many years. Jane and Peg live on the island and respond quickly to any questions; they have been great to deal with during both of our stays at this house. Highly recommend.
I rented the house for my family Christmas vacation .. we had always rented a condo unit in past trips ..
My wife was skeptical as she was used to being in a condo and knew what we were getting there ... When we arrived and i let her in ... it was love at first sight ... the house was spotless .. lots of dishes and everything we needed for those wonderful home cooked meals... the Lanai was so nice for eating every night and great for those evenings of family time playing cards together .. Great location ,the store is 2-3 minutes away ... drive to the best beaches in 15- 20 minutes .. We also loved having use of the garage .. being able to keep all the sand out of the house was wonderful.. Great neighborhood .. this house was a joy to stay at and will having you wanting to rent it again..
We did everything from go to the top of Mauna Kea to snorkel the beautiful bays, explore tide pools, enjoy beaches, and met some wonderful people. Owners give great advice for places to see or go to eat. The house is VERY well furnished for vacationing people with many extras available to use like cooler for beach, beach towels, many other items for beach. Great kitchen set up with plenty of quality dishes, coffee maker, microwave, and a really nice grill on the lanai. BEST OF BOTH - Great Vacation Spot that feels like Home. This was our 2nd stay here, we hope to come back next year - 'til then ALOHA and MAHALO!
Living in this lovely Waikoloa Village house the week of Nov 12-19, 2014 was a real delight. This home was everything the VRBO listing promised. So spotlessly clean inside and out (freshly painted outside) and super comfortable. The screened lanai was our favorite eating place and we ate all breakfasts and most dinners there. The kitchen was well stocked, well equipped, and easy to use. The nearby supermarket was very handy. The washer and dryer came in handy and the beach accessories (snorkel, chairs and lunch bags) were used often (Loved those beach chairs).
Neighborhood is quiet. Location is handy to most attractions on the Kona side of the island. Beaches (Mauna Kea, Hapuna). Snorkeling (Kahalu'u Beach). Restaurants (Pau in Waimea, Quinn's Almost by the Sea in Kona). Resort grounds (Hilton Waikoloa, Mauna Lani.
We would love to re-visit this superb home and would recommend it highly to others.
Ideal for longer stays, our home is in Waikoloa Village, just 10-15 minutes from the Big Island's best sandy beaches. Waikoloa Village has a full service grocery store, bank and gas station. There is a community pool and golf course. Additional shopping and dining options can be found at the Waikoloa Resort, just 10 minutes away. Further north you'll find gorgeous scenery and the charming old sugar plantation towns of Hawi and Kapa'au. Waimea, an old cattle ranching town, is 20 minutes away, offering fine dining restaurants and unique shops.
