Overview

Waikoloa Village House Rental Photos and Description

2 bed/2 bath (with optional studio) with mountain and peek-a-boo ocean view

Our 2 bed/2 bath home is ten to fifteen minutes from the Big Island's very best beaches. You'll find inviting indoor and outdoor spaces. You'll enjoy a splendid view of the Kohala Mountains, a small ocean view and dramatic colors at sunset. Often Maui (Haleakula) can be seen looming above the horizon.

With lovely furnishings, fully equipped kitchen and beach gear, our guests find everything they need for a great vacation. Located on a quiet cul-de-sac, with mature landscaping, our home is a peaceful private oasis. Along with new bamboo and tile flooring, and a pleasant color palette, you'll enjoy contemporary comfortable furnishings.

Covered breezeway, two shaded lanais and wrap around deck contribute to the wonderful indoor/outdoor character of our home. Exterior spaces re-painted in November 2014, with very inviting new color palette.

A wonderful floor plan for couples or families, our home has 2 bedrooms, each with it's own bathroom, separated by a spacious great room. Pocket doors allow each bedroom/bath to be closed off for privacy. Each bedroom is furnished with a queen bed. The master bedroom has patio doors opening to a covered lanai. The second bedroom opens to a wrap-around deck. The great room, with full kitchen, dining area and living room, opens to a screened lanai for outdoor dining.

You'll find our leather sectional welcoming after a day at the beach or touring the island. If you choose to stay in for the evening, a 42 inch flat screen TV, DVD player and Wi-Fi are available to entertain you.

Ceiling fans, a solar attic fan and good cross ventilation keep our home comfortable. Due to it's high elevation, mornings and evenings tend to be cool and comfortable.

Lounge chairs and built in bench seating are on the deck for your enjoyment. The garden is quite pretty with palms, plumeria, avocado, and banana trees and flowering hibiscus surrounding the lawn.

Towels and bed linen are new and top quality. Beds are quite comfortable. The kitchen, with breakfast bar and adjacent dining area, is fully equipped.

Our kitchen has coffee maker, electric tea kettle, toaster oven, blender, mini food processor, microwave and full sets of knives, cookware and dishes, and glassware. The fridge has ice and water on the door. If you like to grill, a gas BBQ is right outside the screened lanai.

You'll find beach towels, chairs, thermos bags, newer snorkel sets, and boogie boards for your convenience.

A washer and dryer are located in the adjacent garage.

Waikoloa Village has a full service grocery store with bakery, sushi counter and deli. There's also a gas station, coffee shop and a few restaurants. The community offers a pool, golf, tennis and riding stables. All are less than 5 minutes drive from the house.

The Waikoloa pool includes both an adult pool for lap swimming and a large shallow kiddie pool. There are lounge chairs, a shaded area, showers, and restroom facilities.

The Kohala Coast resorts, all about 10-20 minutes drive time, offer a myriad of shopping and restaurant options.

At the closest, the Waikoloa Beach Resort, you'll find the King and Queen Shops with boutiques, art galleries and a wide range of dining options. In the early evening, enjoy Hawaiian music and hula. Or skip the shops, and head out to our personal favorite, Lava Lava Beach Club at A-bay (Anaeho'omalu), for the fantastic ocean front atmosphere. Happy hour is from 3-5pm and at sunset the tikis are lit, and the live music starts. It just doesn't get any better.

Vacation like a local, take advantage of the Big Island's best beaches and other resort amenities for a fraction of the cost.

You'll find driving in our area to be a breeze, roads are great and there's never any traffic. Going to the beach you'll enjoy dramatic views of Mauna Kea and the Kohala mountains.

Centrally located, Waikoloa Village is a great home base for exploring all that the Big Island has to offer. Going north past the beaches you'll find Kawaihae Harbor with a few local restaurants and a great little place to buy fresh fish. Continue up the Kohala Coast to explore the old plantation towns of Hawi and Kapa'a. The Pololu Valley look-out is the end of the road and well worth the drive.

Kona airport is about 35 minutes to the south with Costco close-by. Kailua Kona town is another 10 minutes further south.

Waimea town, Parker Ranch and great Saturday Farmers' Markets are about 20 minutes away.

For further exploring, Saddle Road is about 10 minutes away. Taking the new Saddle Road, it's about an hour to the Mauna Kea Visitor Center and about 1.5 hours to Hilo. Volcanos National Park is under 2 hours away.

About Jane Simon

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

Why Jane Simon chose Waikoloa Village

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.

What makes this house unique

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.

Awesome, we all loved this place

  • 5 of 5

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.

Charming Home/Great Location

  • 5 of 5

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!!

Great House and Location

  • 5 of 5

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.

Great House / Great Location

  • 5 of 5

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..

Real Hawaii / Real ALOHA Spirit

  • 5 of 5

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!

Highly Recommended

  • 5 of 5

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.
