My husband, Lars, is a business consultant and I (Sherry) am a elementary school teacher. We live in the suburbs of Los Angeles, CA. We have been visiting Hawaii for almost 20 years now. We love all the islands, but we came to really enjoy the relaxed, low key atmosphere of the Big Island. It really is a 'big' island and there is so much to do. Where else can you experience sunny beaches, tropical rainforest, desert. snowy mountains, temperate forests and grassy plains all on one island? Each section of the island has its own personality and we experience something new every visit. Come and explore this amazing island and welcome to our Hawaiian home!
Sherry Skari purchased this townhome in 2011
We chose the Waikoloa Beach Villas for its fantastic location next to upscale shopping and restaurants and the almost always sunny weather of the South Kohala coast. We enjoy getting coffee at Starbucks, then taking the breathtaking, scenic stroll between the Marriot and Hilton hotels. (Pathway starts at the beach volleyball court at the Marriot.)
The Waikoloa Beach Villas is an upscale gated condo complex with 2 beautiful pools. Our condo is spacious and bright with all the best household amenities, such as a fully loaded kitchen with stainless steel appliances and granite countertops. We have a pool table/ping pong table, video games, DVDs and games for great family entertainment.
We are just completing our holiday stay at this beautiful condo. My family (3 adults--my husband, au pair, and I--and 2 kids, ages 8 and 12) thought this was the perfect place to spend Christmas. The condo was well-appointed with everything we needed, and our kids especially enjoyed the pool table and large TVs (with PS-3). We were able to easily cook our Christmas dinner in the kitchen, and loved having the nice grill and table and chairs outside on the lanai.
The condo is located right near the pool and hot tub, which was nice. We never had trouble finding a place to sit. We loved the condo location, with a very short walking distance to the shopping areas, which have nice stores for all price ranges. Perfect for last minute Christmas shopping! Other things we enjoyed on our Big Island visit:
1) Paradise Helicopters tour of the island. It truly is a must-do! There were several first time helicopter flyers in our group, and everyone loved it! The close up views of the volcano and numerous waterfalls were unparalleled. Seeing snow up close on Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa was breathtaking (and a nice touch for a white Christmas), and flying above glowing lava as it hits the ocean was a bucket-list item. We even saw a whale in the ocean from the sky. It was worth every penny. Our pilot, Dan, made the trip perfect.
2) Visiting Kona coffee growers and sampling fresh coffee. Informative and enjoyable couple of hours. We went to Hula Daddy and Mountain Thunder--both easy to find and < 30 min away.
3) Swimming and sunset watching at A-bay. Short walk or drive from the condo. The beach chairs/towels/boogie boards at the condo were so nice to have. There were plenty for everyone in our group to use. Plenty of shady areas. Though we went on Christmas Day, it was crowded but not overcrowded. We saw many sea turtles chilling on the beach or rocks. We found it preferable to drive to A-Bay rather than hauling all the gear with us. Plentiful parking and about a 2 minute drive.
4) Dinner at Roy's. We love Roy's and have eaten at these restaurants all over Hawaii (and at Pebble Beach). Waikoloa Roy's, which is only a short walk away, did not disappoint. Definitely make reservations in advance (can do on OpenTable).
Thanks, Lars & Sherry. Great communications from you and the resort company. We didn't have any problems with our stay and would stay here again! Highly recommend this property!
My family (husband, 2yo toddler, parents, in-laws, and sister-in-law) all traveled to the big island last week and this place was perfect for all 8 of us. They have everything that a toddler could need (my son was particularly fond of the dump truck and boat for water play!). My adult sister-in-law loved the access to the Hilton pool, since she ran off there almost everyday of our trip. My in-laws loved the full kitchen. My parents loved the rice cooker! It is within walking distance to Queens Marketplace and the local "grocery store" where we picked up spam musubi for breakfast. Everything was basically walkable from the house if you didn't have a car. The SIL walked to and from the Hilton most days. The place was very clean and perfect for our needs since we had age 2 to 70 on the trip with us. Also, there is 1 bedroom on the ground floor, which is perfect for anyone who has a person in their party that has a difficult time taking the stairs.
The owners are very quick to respond and so were the property managers. I will definitely use this place again for our next trip to the Big Island
I just wanted to thank you for all the information you provided us and most importantly, letting us have an opportunity to stay in your beautiful place. It was everything we wanted, plus more! Shops were right across the street. The house had everything you needed. Beds were clean and comfortable. Kitchen was fully stocked. Pool table was a bonus. Downstairs closet had tons of games to keep everyone busy. I can go on!!
I will definitely be recommending your place to our friends if they decide to visit Kona. What an incredible place you have and the perfect spot to watch the fireworks!!!
Thanks again Sherry!
We absolutely loved the house! Clean, airy, bright and comfortable. The location across the street from the Queens Shops was very convenient. Close access to beach also. It was very nice having a kitchen with all the cooking ware we needed (except for waffle iron, which I had brought with me from home, as I wanted to share a special recipe with my family :) The pool table was used a lot (The two walls got in the way for some shots, but games were all in fun anyway) A nice bonus to have passes to the Hilton pools, even though we only had time to use one day. Email correspondence with owner was very friendly. We definitely would stay here again! Thank you, Sherry & Lars! - The Hou Family (Oakland, CA)
Really love this place. Very nice house and location. We and the other family love it. Will come back again later.
Our family of 6, (2 parents and 4 teens), just bid goodbye to the Big Island and this wonderful condo after 10 glorious nights! Normally we are ready to go home by the end of our holidays but we are unanimous in not being ready this time-we could have easily stayed for another week! This condo truly felt like our home away from home!
We had never booked a condo with VRBO and were nervous about whether or not it would be all it said it was on the website. How wonderful it was to arrive at this beautiful condo to find that it was exactly as described but even BETTER in real life than imagined! Sherry and Lars have gone above & beyond in making this vacation rental a true gem! So many great things to say!
Not only was the entire condo spotlessly clean and beautifully decorated, it was convenient to the highest degree! Everything you could need in the kitchen for prepping/cooking/serving/eating was there and in beautiful condition. The BBQ is new and the prep/grilling/eating area on the lanai were such a bonus! The bedrooms were beautiful & spacious, the bedding & super comfy mattresses were like sleeping on a cloud! The 3 spacious full bathrooms were spotless. The grounds are beautiful & we took a quick dip every evening in the beautiful pool and hot tub which are easy to see/access from the condo. We only used the Hilton Pool Pass once. It's close & beautiful but our teens were more into surfing, body boarding, etc
We took advantage the complimentary concierge service & were very happy to deal with the super helpful and friendly Wendy from Big Island Vacation Services. We had our grocery shopping done in advance to our 9:00pm arrival. What a treat to arrive to chilled drinks & plenty of food for breakfast & plenty more. It was well worth the minimal fee! She also booked our snorkelling and zip-lining excursions & provided a wealth of helpful information and directions to beaches. It was great to have help from a resident expert!
There were 6+ beach travel beach chairs, 3 umbrellas, body boards, coolers in the garage that we were so happy to have and used each day. Invaluable! The markets/shops close by are great for whatever you may need.
Thank you so very much Sherry and Lars for your helpfulness in answering questions & ease of booking, your attention to detail in all the little extras and mostly for opening up your beautiful condo to our family and being a huge part of making our dream vacation just that! Mahalo! :)
