The two bedroom, two bath condo is furnished in a tropical motif. There are two queen size beds in the downstairs bedroom and a king size bed in the master bedroom. The master bath has a large jetted spa tub for your relaxation.
The living room features cathedral ceilings and opens to a spacious lanai with wetbar. The full kitchen is complete with all the cooking ware, paper goods, spices and staples you will need for meal preparation. Linens and towels are provided and there is a washer/dryer within the unit. There is a HDTV, DVD and Radio/CD stereo player and HIGH SPEED/WIRELESS INTERNET SERVICE.
The unit is located along the 9th fairway of an 18-hole Robert Trent Jones Jr. designed golf course. The clubhouse and pro-shop are one block from the complex. It has received a four-star rating in the Golf Digest's Best Places to Play and other golf magazines. DISCOUNTED GREEN FEES are available for our guests.

This is a solid value for a great condominium at Waikoloa Villas.
The unit is very well appointed, the balcony is large and offering gorgeous views. The view from the balcony is even better than in the pictures shown on VRBO since vegetation has grown a bit around the swimming pool area for the better. Neighborhood and apartment complex is very quiet and proximity to the golf course gives the impression of space and seclusion.
Description of the unit is accurate. Condo is well vented and being located in breezy Waikoloa (and at altitude) it is never hot or cold, just perfect i.e. no need for AC. Beds are very comfortable. Many windows to let fresh air in as well as light. Pacific Ocean can be seen from the lanai while the snowy top of Mauna Kea can be seen from the master bedroom.
Interaction with Susan was very straightforward and the owner was responsive to our emails. Owner also provided us with directions and all relevant information.
Two very minor cons for the unit:
- the hot/heated water storage tank is not large enough to completely fill the jetted bath (only about half of it as I like my bath very warm). I think it could be larger to fill completely the jetted bath (there are heated jacuzzys at the outdoor pools though if this is important to you)
- the spacious bathroom adjacent to the master bedroom does not have its own ceiling or a dividing wall going all the way to the cathedral roof/ceiling meaning that it is not completely isolated from the master bedroom (to mitigate bathroom use noise at night...). A dedicated ceiling would have been great to isolate it, like the master bedroom closet has.
Overall, I think this is a great unit that is well taken care of by a pro-active owner. I would definitely return to this unit and I recommend it.
The Condo made our stay outstanding!! We WILL return!
We have stayed at Waikoloa Villas many times over the years and always enjoy our stay. Unit B200 had everything to make our 12 day stay perfect. We loved the quietness, starry nights and cooler evening temps. The we'll equipped kitchen made preparing meals easy. The king size bed worked for my husband who has a sore back most of the time. This unit is close to the pool and jacuzzi that we used everyday and had to ourselves. We used the boogie boards at Hapuna Beach, and loved watching the local turkeys cruise by in the mornings and evenings. We would denitely book this unit again.
Clean and well supplied. Would definitely use again.
We loved this property. It was perfect place for our little family plus grandmother. Great value for money. Very quite and peaceful place. Away from all resorts craziness. Very convenient location for island sightseeing. The owner is very helpful and cares about you. Hope we will be back soon!
The area is quite and nice. The condo was nice for the amount of rental. A surprise for us was that ceiling fans are considered air conditioning by VRBO and the owner, so a word of caution for all properties is to email and ask lots of questions. AC was a major criteria for us due to a daughter with asthma and we arrived at the condo to find only fans. The owner expressed that a note was in the listing to clarify this and I did finally find it by not viewing the non-mobile version of the VRBO site. I expressed that I thought this was still inappropriate since all reality systems do not consider fans AC but the owner believes different and the site is supporting the owner not the renter. I will address this in more detail with the website. It was possible to get the room cool at night with the breeze and fans but all the fans in the condo only run on high speed so this is pretty breezy right above the bed.
