About Dennis Fransen and Marci Sweet


Thanks for taking a look at my properties! I'm an avid traveler, and a self-employed entrepreneur. My wife and I call the Big Island of Hawaii home for half the year, and the other time we travel between Montana, or wherever our heart desires. We enjoy spending time with our family and friends, especially when sharing a beautiful Hawaiian sunset! We have 5 properties on the Big Island and we're seasoned hosts - having done this over a decade. Our property numbers are: 11826, 26201, 210469, 206890, and 848068.

Hope you choose to stay with us!

Quiet and lovely

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.

Family Vacation over Easter Break

  • 4 of 5

Our family stayed at this condo rental for 2 weeks over the Easter Break.

It was clean, organized and very quiet. I am sure that we were the noisy ones since we were travelling with 4 kids! The Vista Waikoloa property is well maintained and very quiet. Our unit had a great golf course mountain view. We enjoyed being a short walk to Kings & Queens shops. We appreciated the updated bathrooms & kitchen and the laundry. Boogey Boards beach chairs, toys and towels were a welcome bonus! The pool was great and we enjoyed having numerous dips under the stars before bedtime.

Dennis and Marci were great to deal with, very hands on.

We feel we got good value for our money and we will definitely return.

Vista Waikoloa

  • 5 of 5

We just finished a fantastic week stay at the Vista Waikoloa condo. The condo is fully equipped, super clean, comfortable, and felt like home away from home in Hawaii. We really appreciated the small cooler for our use on day trips around the island. The condo is in a very nice location. It is next to some big resorts and shops, but still feels very quaint.

The unit is an end unit on the golf course. It was quiet most of the time but for some reason they choose to mow the golf course daily around 6:30am or so. Little annoying, but definitely wouldn't stop me from staying there again. Nice gym and pool facilities if you choose to use them, as well as a big barbecue area. There is also a grocery store a couple minutes drive away, but it was ridiculously overpriced. I'd recommend major shopping be done in Kona or at Costco and grab little items at the local store.

Vista Waikoloa

  • 5 of 5

This was a repeat stay for us, since we had such a good experience here on our previous visit. Dennis and Cheryl are easy to work with, and are always prompt and straightforward. The condo is in very good condition, and we'll supplied. We appreciated having a good kitchen since we rarely went out to eat, as well as the beach chairs that we took with us on outings. Vista Waikoloa has a nice swimming pool and gas barbecue area, which we usually had to ourselves. The beach nearby is beautiful. I have seen sea turtles, moray eels, and other marine life there. Many other beaches are within a short drive away. We hope to stay here for our next visit. Mahalo!

Perfect for a family with a toddler!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Big Island with our two and half year old toddler, and we decided to stay at a condo. It was a very good decision. This was also our first time using VRBO and we were very glad to have found this condo. My first impression when contacting Dennis and Cheryl was excellent. I have very high standards, and I like transparency and responsiveness when dealing with a business. Dennis and Cheryl were not only super responsive, professional, and courteous, but they were also very pleasant to speak with and they happily replied to all my inquiries. You can tell they're pros at this, and that was very reassuring. When we arrived at the condo we were pleasantly surprised by the space. It's breezy, spacious, full of light, and kitchen and bathrooms are fully renovated. It was exactly what we were looking for. It was also quiet and we never heard anyone during our entire stay, which is something you really appreciate when you travel with a toddler who needs naps and goes to bed early. We loved being able to have breakfast in the lanai. Maintenance did mow the lawn early in the morning on some days, so just bring ear plugs if you're a light sleeper. I was never disturbed once I put in the ear plugs. The parking space is right below the condo, so it's very convenient. You can walk everywhere you need to, so you can ditch the car some days. Also, the pool is great for those days you don't want to drive to the beach. Finally, Dennis and Cheryl have equipped an outside closet with every beach toy and item you can imagine, so you don't have to buy anything. It's all there for you to use. We had a wonderful time exploring the Big Island, enjoying the great food, sleeping in some days, wonderful Hapuna Beach, and a long etc., and we can't wait to go back. Bonus -- the large palm tree plant near the parking space has geckos living in it, which is awesome! :-)

Fabulous! Go!

  • 5 of 5

Dennis & Cheryl truly helped make this trip happen for us! We were flying standby and they were so helpful and accommodating with our awkward travel situation. Would we even make it? How many nights? We didn't know until last minute but since the condo happened to still be available (happy dance) they worked with our crazy situation and made us feel welcome!

The location is great, the condo is beautiful and comfortable, the lanaii's are large and perfect for dining or relaxing. Our son loved the pool too even after all day at the beaches or on excursions. Beach toys, chairs, boogie boards in the closet and all you need in the kitchen. We loved our stay here!!! Hope to be back again someday! Mahalo Dennis & Cheryl!
