This Hawaiian plantation-style condo in the Fairway Villas resort complex is surrounded by the greens and fairways of the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course. We are centrally located across the lake from the Kings' Shops and within walking distance of the Queen's Market Place. The beautiful crescent-shaped white sand beach of Anaeho'omalu Bay is a fifteen minute walk away. Hapuna and Kauna'oa (Mauna Kea), within a fifteen minute drive, are also picture perfect Hawaiian beaches.

Enjoy the newly refinished infinity edge pool with elevated rock spa overlooking the 4th hole and Kings' Lake, the fitness center, and the poolside gas barbecues.

Our two bedroom, two bathroom first floor Golf Villa offers a relaxing and convenient location to fully enjoy all the Big Island has to offer. It is decorated in tropical style, and provides many amenities including a complete kitchen with granite counter tops, stocked with a full complement of small appliances and utensils, our favorite spices and cookbooks to make this your home away from home.

The master bath features a large soaking tub, separate shower, double sinks with a marble countertop, and large walk-in closet. The guest bedroom has two twin beds, which can be pushed together to form a queen-sized bed. There is also a convertible queen-sized sleep-sofa in the living room.

The living room includes a large screen Samsung smart HDTV, digital HD/DVR cable, DVD/BlueRay player, free high speed wireless/wired Internet access, and stereo. There is a large selection of mainly Hawaiian music CDs, movies for the entire family, island, volcano and reef documentaries. Enjoy our collection of guide books and books about Hawaiian culture, history and famous visitors.

Relax under the ceiling fan on our lanai and watch the sunset or play a game or puzzle from our entertainment center. Enjoy the view of the 4th tee and Kings' Lake, with Hualalai Mountain as the backdrop. The lanai closet holds beach chairs, umbrella and toys.

This is our Hawaiian home, and we have furnished it with everything we appreciate during a long stay. We think you will enjoy it too.

Good location and property amenities but the cleaning company is not properly cleaning the unit.

  • 3 of 5

The condo is located in a great part of the property with a lake/golf course view and in walking distance to shopping and the pool. The master bed was very comfortable. The unit is stocked with island guide books and cooking utensils which was very convenient. It is also a short drive to A-Bay which is an amazing beach. It has the potential to be great but we were disappointed at the lack of cleanliness. I had to clean mold off the shower tile and floors were very dirty. Also the sheets were stained and looked dirty like they might not have been properly laundered. The cups that were in the cupboard were also dirty and I had to scrub the coffee stains off and send everything through the dishwasher again. Also the couch upholstery and carpet looked like they needed to be cleaned as well. We also killed several bugs and cockroaches inside the unit. I know in the tropics this can be difficult to control. I would reccomend switching cleaning services or property management services to make sure they are properly cleaning and hiring pest control services between guests.

Owner's Response: We were disappointed to learn that a few recent guests were unhappy with the cleanliness of our condo. We met with the cleaning company to discuss specific issues and solutions. We have taken several actions in response: --we replaced the living room sofa bed and chairs; --for problems related to our new air conditioning system, we have increased the frequency of service visits; --we checked the sheets and towels, and now all are sparkling white; --we had the carpet cleaned again, and the tile floor steam cleaned --we signed a new contract with Orkin pest control, which in addition to regular treatments, allows for emergency visits if a guest experiences a problem; --we fixed the sticky lanai closet door, so guests can more easily get to the beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards.

Paradise at its finest!

  • 5 of 5

This ground floor condo was fabulous! It came with everything you could possibly need! The owner was fantastic to work with. My husband is terminally ill and the owner was so kind and said that we could cancel if medically needed. Thank God we were able to make the trip! Our family loved the condo and thoroughly enjoyed our trip to the Big Island!

Great Location - Filthy Condo

  • 1 of 5

This condo is in a great location in Waikoloa. The owner is easy to work with and contacted us immediately when we notified the agency of our concerns. He did refund one night stay because of the problems we experienced.

My suggestion would be to hire a different cleaning crew. There were cockroaches aplenty, dirty towels and sheets, filthy floors, and a moldy smell due to an air conditioner (even after the repair guy came, the air conditioner was unusable due to the horrid smell). Two days of our vacation were spent cleaning the condo and waiting for repair people.

Owner's Response: We are sorry that the condo was dirty when our guests arrived, and that this spoiled two days of their vacation. Our air conditioner, which is less than two years old and has been serviced according to the installer's instructions, apparently started spewing black stuff all over the place between the time our condo was cleaned and the guests arrived. As soon as our local agent was informed of the problem the next morning, they did everything they could to fix it as soon as possible. They called us, so we were able to offer the refund. The same day, two people from our agency came to check everything and had the cleaners return. An air conditioning man came the same day to diagnose the problem,, and returned early the next day to repair it. As far as the cockroaches are concerned, unfortunately they are common in this type of climate. We have pest control people treat indoors, and the homeowners' association sprays outdoors monthly. Our property manager says the AC is working fine now without any unpleasant smell.

Beautiful, clean, and truly home away from home!

We are a family of 6. The 2 bedroom and sofa sleeper worked comfortably. The location is close to the beach and shops. We'd love to come back someday. Our big thanks to the owner, management, and cleaning people! Mahalo.....

Well stocked with cooking supplies and spices. Great location within walking distance of shops.

  • 5 of 5

The villa is well stocked with a beautiful view of the lake from the lanai. Walking distance from shops and the beach. The lanai storage door is a bit tricky to open but other than that everything was great.

Fully Stocked!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay in the condo. It was fully stocked for cooking and entertaining; plenty of dishes, pots/pans, utensils, towels, music, books, media, etc. Loved having a ground floor unit. New heat exchangers in each room kept us cool after a hot day in the sun, but we really preferred the natural air conditioning of the Hawaiian breeze. Grounds were well kept and the pool was fantastic. We walked to A-Bay nearly every day. A+!

About Roger Taillon

Aloha! We are a retired couple with grown children and grandchildren. While we spend most of the year on the east coast, close to family, we also like to travel. And we spend several weeks a year in our second home on our favorite place, the Big Island of Hawaii.

Kay & Roger Taillon

Roger Taillon purchased this condo in 2002

Why Roger Taillon chose Puako

We had been vacationing on several Hawaiian Islands every few years beginning in 1984, when we visited Maui. Although all the Hawaiian islands are beautiful, we decided that Hawaii is our favorite. It is the biggest, the most diverse, with the volcanoes, beautiful beaches, tropical rain forest, ranchland, and coffee farms, many activities and great restaurants. The Kohala Coast, where our condo is located, has the best beaches, some of the best restaurants, and is relatively uncrowded. So when we were ready to retire, it was a natural choice for our second home.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is furnished as our second home, so it is comfortable and fully equiped for a long stay. The view from the lanai at sunset is beautiful. The condo is within walking distance of numerous activities, and an easy drive to others.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Kay and Roger

We so much enjoyed our time in Kona. The condo is fabulous and so well equipped. Your notes and scrap book were so helpful not only for the usage of the condo but also finding ones way around the area. After being on the road for 10 days, we walked into the condo and felt right at home. We have to admit that we didn't stray far from the area because the beach was so close and it just felt so good to just enjoy Hawaii. Saw the turtles sun bathing on the rocks and watched one slowly make its way back into the sea. So much to explore at "A-beach" but such a good place to pull up some shade or sun and enjoy Hawaii. Each sunset is more beautiful than the prior.

Thank you for renting us your condo. We highly recommend your condo renting.
