About Kimberly Castro

We moved to Big Island from the Bay area in January of 2009, for a number of reasons. The main one being to live in such a beautiful, safe place and be able to spend more quality time with our family. We love Big Island! We live in Waikoloa Village (10 minutes up the hill from Mauna Lani), so we are able to visit and care for our vacation rental as a second home, and be sure it's kept in immaculate condition. This also allows us to be here for our guests if they need anything during their stay (or my husband can take them out golfing - such a tough job!) He loves it and so do our guests! They get spoiled with his discounted owner golf rates.

Kimberly Castro purchased this villa in 2007

Why Kimberly Castro chose Kohala Coast

We previously had a vacation rental in Waikoloa Beach Resort, and we really like the less crowded feel of both Mauna Lani, and especially The Golf Villas. We have the largest floor plan, the masters, and there are only 5 units in our entire building. No one is located above us (this makes a huge difference in peace, quiet, and privacy). We wanted to be close to the Beach Club (just a short beach cruiser bike ride away), and we are. We have included beach cruisers for our guests to use. They are so much fun! His/her golf clubs are also included for our guests use.

What makes this villa unique

We get to use the amazing beach club (which I feel is the best place to snorkel on the island). Our unit is very private. We chose the location of our unit, and waited for its release in the last phase of building, because of the way it's situated and its privacy (no other buildings close by). We have a Bose surround sound, DVD's, CD's, books, games, toys (for kids), outdoor kitchen, and fully equipped town home for everything you should need for the ultimate luxury, relaxing vacation. Our master lanai with double chaise is absolutely perfect for reading, napping, or having your morning coffee or suset drink.

Relaxing view

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed a number of times at townhouses in Mauna Lani and this one had the nicest views from either the main floor or upper lanai. The location was a bit of a walk to the Shops (a must for happy hours) but the beach club was closer than from other locations and we enjoyed walking kings trail or the fisherman's trail (fantastic views) to Waikoloa. The unit was well equipped and had everything one needed. It was only my wife and I but with 3 bedrooms and 3 full baths you could easily have a large family or several couples share the place. We had a car and spent much of our time golfing at various courses (14 rounds at 7 different courses) with a great variety of styles. The beach club is nice but more crowded so you can always walk to the black sands beach next door (or drive if you are early enough, or late enough, that there is room to park) - just go to the security gate and ask for shore access. Lots of great beaches to explore all over the area if you are willing to drive and go for a bit of a hike.

This Golf Villa was very well decorated.

  • 5 of 5

This Golf Villa was well decorated. Everything was clean and new. The beds were made of high quality mattresses and bedding. The kitchen was well equipped. Everything worked well. There was a TV in all the bedrooms. I would rent there again.

Beautiful and comfy condo!

  • 5 of 5

This our 4th year at the Golf Villas but our 1st time in this condo. It is absolutely amazing and spacious. We have two kids and it was perfect. I love that we had access to the garage. We actually got to meet the owners Kim and Rick and they were absolutely lovely. This condo has everything you could possibly need from cookware to outdoor activities. We will be back next summer!

Buitiful vacation house

  • 5 of 5

This was really remarkable experience. We stayed for 5 days, and everything in the house was perfect: house, decor, views, appliances, everything that you would need for vacation, including bikes, snorkeling gear, blender, you name it. The house has a very luxury feel, everything worked as intended, no problems at all. The owners were very helpful and responsive. Thanks so much!

Lovely, well appointed, family friendly condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have been coming here for a few years (before kids and after) and absolutely love it. It is easily located in the Mauna Lani area of the Kohala coast just north of the airport so its nearby the hotel resorts and gorgeous beaches. If you choose not to leave the area, there is a wonderful beach club that includes lounge chairs, an outdoor cafe and clean bathrooms as well as a nearby shopping center with a market, shops and restaurants. The condo owners Kim & Rick are wonderful and have stocked this lovely condo with all the comforts of home. I can't think of one thing it doesn't have including a fully stocked kitchen, cooler bags/beach towels for the beach and even kid items like childproof gates and some beach toys and snorkle gear. The condo is immaculately maintained and has a lovely, contemporary island decor. There is also a spacious lanai off of the living room with a grassy area that our toddler loves to run around and play ball on! We highly recommend Kim and Rick's condo and can't wait for our next visit!
