Kohala Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

A BEAUTIFUL remodeled condominium decorated in plantation theme awaits your arrival. This corner unit, C 301, brings you sunrises above Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, as well as magnificent sunsets going into the ocean. All the rooms are large, airy and open, with high ceilings.

A large private spare bedroom closes off with louvered sliding doors and has access to a private bathroom. The spacious L shaped Lanai is a wonderful extension; providing an additional area for dining and an area for entertaining, lounging with a good book or whale watching with your morning coffee.

Vista Waikoloa resides in a unique and historic setting at Waikoloa Beach Resort. It is located in the center of the resort a short walk to Anaeho'omalu Bay, which is a white sand beach, the Hilton Resort (Dolphin Quest), the Waikoloa Marriott Hotel, tennis courts, the beach trail, the Kings Shops, the new Queens Shops and several World Class Restaurants.

IF YOU LOVE GOLF..this is the place to be..It features The Waikoloa Kings' Course, designed by British Open Champion Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish and the Waikoloa Beach Course opened in 1981 by Robert Trent Jones, Jr. This course was carved from the lava flow. The Course features the most spectacular ocean front par-five in Hawaii, on the 502-yard 12th hole.

5 star condo

  • 5 of 5

We have been visiting Waikoloa every year for 8 years, this was one of our favorite trips. The Condo was perfect, it felt like a second home. Vista Waikoloa is a great location & value in the area. My favorite dive & snorkel spots are within 15 minutes from here. We cook most of our meals on our trips, so it was nice to have such a well equipped kitchen. We saw more whales this year then we have on years past. Thank you for letting us stay in your beautiful home, we will return. Mahalo

Staying here was an absolute pleasure

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this condo. Without question, it's the nicest and best equipped of any of the units we have ever stayed at in Vista Waikoloa. We really felt at home in every way.

Thank you for sharing your home away with home with us. It was lovely.

Beautiful condo with everything you need

  • 5 of 5

We went to Hawai'i in December 2013 with our teenage daughter for a family wedding. Rather than staying in a hotel with 2 double beds, for about the same price we stayed in this beautiful 2-bedroom, 2-bath condo with spectacular views. All amenities provided-kitchen fully stocked (even with some commonly used spices and oils), beach towels, etc. Easy walk to Marriott (where the rest of our extended family stayed)-just a little further to the shopping areas. But the best part about the condo was its owner. It was so easy to work with Gail in setting up our arrangements and communicating with her at any time that we had questions before going (and once while we were there). We HIGHLY recommend this particular condominium to anyone travelling to the Waikoloa/Kohala Coast area.

One of the best Condos we've stayed in, anywhere, period.

  • 5 of 5

It’s very rare to walk into a rental condo that you immediately realize is someone’s second home, as opposed to being a typical rental unit. The unit underwent an extensive recent remodel, and it shows The kitchen is fully (and I mean FULLY) stocked, all the appliances have been upgraded to the latest and best, and you would not be at all uncomfortable having a dress-up cocktail or dinner party in Mike and Gail’s condo. Out side are two areas to catch great sunsets and eat meals, and they even have complete snorkel sets, beach chairs, and coolers for 4 people. Hardwood floors, beautiful hardwood privacy sliders and window shades (no cheap curtains or mini-blinds here) upscale wall hangings and decorations, stone kitchen counter tops, large flat screen HDTV, wireless router, this place has it all. We had friends staying in 4 other condos in Vista Waikoloa, and, trust me, not one of them even came close to Mike and Gail’s property.

Gail could not have been more helpful, and she sent us complete “cheat sheets” on everything we need to know to hit the ground running. Those, coupled with the “blue book” (on the coffee table), had everything essential for having a great time in Waikoloa and its surrounding, as well as the rest of the Island. All you have to do is hit Costco and/or Safeway on the way to the condo, and then you can settle in for a wonderful vacation. I just wished we could’ve spent more time there, but we will have to settle for return trips.

Highly, highly recommended.

Beautiful, comfortable Condo!

  • 5 of 5

The condo is so tastefully decorated that you will not believe you are in a rental property! It is beautiful and it has everything you may need. We have stayed at the vistas many times and this is the best we have seen! A perfect place for a family of 4. Thank you Gail and Mike for making it available and for taking such good care of it!
