Quiet and lovely

  • 4 of 5

Had a wonderful time. The condo had everything we needed. Close to shopping and beaches, but not so close that you had no privacy. Hope to stay again.

Fantastic holiday location

  • 5 of 5

Just finished my 3 week March vacation and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my stay.

Dennis has done a great job outfitting the condo to make your stay a comfortable one. You have everything you need including your beach requirements, like chairs, towel and toys.

The condo has been recently upgraded throughout and comes with very comfortable furniture.

The condo is centrally located and your just a short walk to shopping centres, restaurants and A-Bay the local beach.

You are only 20 minutes from the airport and 10 minutes from some of the best white sand beaches on the Big Island.

My favourite was the hugh Lanai that wraps around the condo, many a quiet night was spent relaxing, reading a book enjoying a glass of wine.

Enjoy your stay, I highly recommend it.

Very comfortable stay.

  • 4 of 5

We recently spent the holidays at this condo in the Waikaloa resort area of the Big Island. Overall location was excellant as it is close to many beaches, and resort shopping. Dennis , the owner was excellent to deal with responding to any questions fast and makes the booking process very easy. The condo is located in a very well maint complex with a lovely heated pool & hot tub area. If you want to bbq you have to use the communal bbqs about 100 steps from the unit. The condo itself looks out over the golf course with a large balcony. The one disappointment for me was the lack of direct sunlight the condo receives. For some that may be a plus but coming for a sun vacation i need sunlight which this unit in December receives very little. The unit was adequately appointed but we found the kitchen missing some essential items. An easy fix. We loved our 1st visit to the big isle and will return.

Very good family condo

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for 10 days with our two sons and we loved this condo! It's very nice and there was everything we needed. We enjoyed the heated pool and the beach equipment, especially the boogieboards. It was lovely to eat breakfast on the lanai every morning. Dennis is really good to work with, we got fast answers to all our questions. We would definitely stay here again anytime!

Good Family Condo

  • 5 of 5

Family of four (with two teens) stayed here for 10 days on a very sunny Spring Break last month. This is a functional, very open floor plan condo that worked really well for us... kitchen well stocked, beds comfortable, plenty of towels and linens. A stash of beach gear in the lanai closet...did the trick and saved us some money although the boogie boards and two snorkel sets have seen some love and may need to be updated soon.

Vista Waikoloa is one the first condo complexes built in the area, but I loved the location...walking distance to beach (closest condo besides pricey Kolea), shops, hotels, etc. The layout is nice and had one of the best and largest lanai's that looked over the golf course. We had friends staying down the road at a newer complex, and while it was very attractive and modern, it definitely wasn't as spacious and the lanai was very small. Condo was just as it was pictured. My kids did sleep with that slider door open to the living area...for some reason there is no ceiling fan in the second bedroom and with both doors shut it made it unbearably warm at night, but doors open it was fine. The master bedroom was very comfortable....I miss that bed! The warm salt water pool was enjoyable, only heated pool in Waikoloa I understand.

When you rent a VRBO it really matters who the owners are and how they manage their rental. Dennis is on top of his rentals and is one of the best communicators I have experienced in regards to an owner. If we visit the Big Island again I will definitely seek out one of his properties!

** A word on the noise/privacy... Dennis called and updated me on the roofing situation two weeks before our trip. They had finished our building but were still on the property finishing up. When we got there they were set up right outside our building, but they did not start til after 8, and honestly, we were gone all day doing fun stuff so whatever noise they made then I cannot say. Their mess was a bit of an eyesore, as was the maintenance trail that was set up passing the beautiful lanai but I am sure that is temporary and now, a month later, probably isn't even there. I will say, the golf course mowing would be the one negative. While we were there they mowed every morning between 6:30 and 7. Our last morning it was 4:45am, which we reported to Dennis, and he planned on talking to management as this was unacceptable to him as an owner.

Despite the mowing, I still recommend!!

We Keep Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third time staying in this unit, and is hands down, the most amazing place to stay in Hawaii. It's comfortable, clean, and close to an incredible array of things to do. We would take a short walk down to the beach every evening with folding chairs provided in the unit and cocktails made courtesy of fresh fruit from Hawaii and a blender, also provided in the unit. What a way to enjoy a sunset! A variety of shops are a short walk away (everything from Tiffany Jewelry to Crazy Shirts and Hawaii souvenirs. We stayed with our folks this time, and the condo comfortably housed us all with the ability for us each to have a little bit of private space, if we wished. There is a pretty, little blue-tiled pool to do laps, and two jacuzzis in which to relax. There is also a nicely appointed workout room, if you are crazy enough to spend your time working out on your vacation. For those who like to grill, there is a huge outdoor ramada with seating and several gas barbecues to use that are clean and do a great job of grilling that fresh fish to go with your pineapple salsa. If that is not enough, it also sits on very well maintained golf course, for the golf enthusiast. In the morning you can sip your Kona coffee on the large lanai and listen to the tropical birds greet the day. The kitchen is well-appointed and we were able to save a great deal of money by hitting Costco in Kona and eating meals in at night. There is also a washer and dryer in the unit, so you really don't need too much in the way of clothing to pack. The owners are very quick to respond to any inquiries, and are very kind and hospitable. You will not find a better value on the big island!
