Imagine waking up every morning to the aromatic fragrances of tropical blossoms and the caresses of gentle trade winds. Splash, surf, stroll on the sand, or set off on a shopping safari for everything under the sun. Relax in luxurious surroundings at our tropical condo (Kia-Hai) or release your inner champion on two unbelievable golf courses.
Kia-Hai is a 1285ft2 two bedroom plus loft, two bath villa on the top floor of a three-floor landscaped complex. Stretch out and relax in this gorgeous, spacious, tastefully furnished condo. You'll find peace and quiet with all the comforts and conveniences of home. The lanai features sweeping views of the beautiful Waikoloa Beach Golf Course and Mauna Kea in the distance. Be sure to take time to lounge around or swim in the infinity edge pool and hot tub surrounded by lava rock. Next to the pool are multiple gas BBQs and an open air fitness room.
Kia-Hai is conveniently located on the sunny Kohala Coast in the Fairway Villas at the Waikoloa Beach Resort just 20 minutes north of the Kona International Airport. When you drive away from the Kona Airport and head north on Highway 19, you find an unusual view of various lava flows. As you approach the Waikoloa Beach Resort, the entry with its swaying palms, welcomes you. Although just as pristine and authentic as other resorts on the Kohala Coast, the Waikoloa Beach Resort excels in recreational activities for energetic visitors, and is great for families and groups.
Kia-Hai, a non-smoking, no pets villa has the privacy and feel of an upscale individual home with luxury furnishings, air conditioning and all the amenities you would expect in a luxury villa. Seating for 6 at the dining table plus bar stools provide ample seating for meals and the living room features a comfortable queen sized pull out sofa with TV, DVD, VCR, WiFi, and many other entertainment options. The living room, dining room and kitchen all have a beautiful tiled floor which is ideal to island lifestyle.

Grill fresh fish and enjoy fresh vegetables and fruit from the many local farmer markets found in the area. If your idea of vacation cooking is simply brewing a cup of famous Kona coffee, then many world-class local restaurants await you.
Beyond the living room is the lanai with table and chairs. It faces no other buildings making you think you are in your own private paradise. The grounds are well kept with palm trees and colorful aromatic flowering plants. There are beautiful views from every room in this top floor unit.
Both the master bedroom (king bed) and the guest bedroom (queen bed) feature designer furniture and TV's with cable. The loft includes two twin beds and a reading nook.

A second full bath, located near the guest bedroom, is also fully stocked with towels and amenities for your convenience.
The isle of Hawaii offers a vast array of activities for everyone. Waikoloa's streets are lined with palm trees and sidewalks, making for perfect conditions for running, walking, and biking. Only a 5 minute walk and you arrive at Anaeho’omalu ('A'-bay), a beautiful beach where you will find ancient Hawaiian fish ponds and many opportunities to view incredible sunsets. A-Bay with its gorgeous tropical fish, turtles and corals is ideal for water activities including swimming, snorkeling, scuba diving, glass bottom boat rides, windsurfing, sea kayaking or just relaxing on a beach chair. During the winter you may even spot a Humpback Whale. The King's Trail so named for the great King Kamehameha remains well preserved within the Waikoloa Beach Resort where visitors can walk in the footsteps of ali'i (chieftains) surrounded by lava, ancient petroglyphs and native Hawaiian plants. More world class beaches can be found a short 15 minute drive from the villas at the Mauna Lanai hotel and Hapuna Beach State park. 10 of the 15 climatic zones are found on the Big Island and you can go from a tropical beach to the top of a mountain on the same day. You can even visit an active volcano or a tropical rainforest. The scenery is unbelievable with breathtaking valleys, waterfalls and amazing vistas. Other activities include horseback riding, helicopter tours, coffee plantation tours, hiking on an active volcano, visiting the Observatory, zip lining, or jet skiing.
Kia-Hai is only steps away from the King’s & Queen’s Shops. Both shopping complexes have a variety of fine shops, galleries, award winning restaurants, cultural activities and a market that carries local produce and fresh catch of the day. Just beyond the Shops you will find even more entertainment at the Hilton Resort which offers world class dining, shopping, tram and boat rides, dolphins and more.
Our family lives in Lethbridge, Alberta, Canada. Brent works as an Electrical Engineer and Crystal is a student. Our daughters attend public school and participate in music lessons, dance, and synchronized swimming. With our hectic daily schedule, we love to get away to the Big Island of Hawaii where the pace of life is much more relaxed.
We decided to buy this property after our second trip to the island, as we knew Hawaii was a place we would return to over and over again. In addition to making the condo availble for rental, we hope this vacation home will be a place of relaxation, quality time and special memories for our family.
We love the amenties that Waikaloa Beach Resort has to offer, and appreciate that it is easy to find, and is close to several great beaches.
Our condo is an end unit located on the third (top) floor (elevator available) of the building making it a very quiet secluded unit. The golf course and mountain views are breath taking as is the entire Fairway Villas property. In the past year we have completed many upgrades for your convenience and comfort. We have replaced the central air conditioner, water heater, and fridge. We have also added a new front load washer and dryer.
