Wow! What a beautiful home in a private setting surrounded by lush landscaping and opening up to the 13 Tee box on the Waikoloa Village Golf Course. From the moment you enter this 2,500 square foot home, the beauty of the outdoors is visible. The home simply flows from the entrance hallway, to the kitchen, dining and living room areas out onto a large covered lanai that overlooks the golf course with an accompanying view of Hualalai Mountain. Barbecue or enjoy a refershment on the lanai while you watch and critique the golfers teeing off.

About Reed Fitkin

The owner (who also resides in Oregon) is from Hawaii. Though growing up on Oahu, he found the 'Big Island' (Hawaii) to be his favorite island- far away from the madening crowds and comprised of a wide range of topographical features providing numerous opportunites for outdoor enjoyment.

Reed Fitkin purchased this house in 2001

Why Reed Fitkin chose Francolin Place

I have been coming to this island since childhood; love the beaches, scuba and playing golf on a beautiful course at affordable rates. The community is friendly with a retail center to accomodate one's need within walking distance.

What makes this house unique

Right from the doorstep, one can take a daily run or walk on a flat course or hilly. You choose. Watching and critiquing the golfers is also always fun from the lanai followed with a nice evening barbeque.

Family holiday home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent a week at Waikoloa and found the house to be just as we anticipated from the photos and description. The house was clean and well maintained with everything we needed.There is a generous amount of living space for a large family to spread out .Reed provided clear instructions on how to operate all features of the house with additional information on local places of interests, restaurants and facilities. All our enquiries were answered promptly so I would not hesitate in recommending this property to friends or family. With a car, Waikoloa was a convenient base for us to explore all parts of the island of Hawaii.

We will remember this as one of our best family holidays.

Lovely home, lovely views, lovely hosts - Great location

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Reed and Noje. We enjoyed our stay in your lovely home. The house was as advertised, roomy, well furnished and with a fully stocked kitchen. With three bedrooms and three bathrooms there is plenty of privacy and space. The lanai was comfortable, cool and provided nice views of the golf course, Hualalai, sunsets and of course stars. Having come in December we were treated with snow on both Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa. The house is situated nicely for getting everywhere - beaches, resorts, Waimea, Kona, airport are all short drives. The close by Waikoloa market is a full grocery with a great selection of deli, meats and bakery. Families or couples will find this a comfortable home that is clean and with plenty of extras including beach toys/chairs, wifi, choices in TV entertainment, laundry and quiet neighbors!

We had a near daily parade of turkeys. The males really strutted with their feathers fully raised and their chests puffed out. Their quiet calls of gobble in the early evening and morning reminded us of the old Walton's episode - "Good night John boy, Good night Mary Ellen," etc. The pairs of nene on the golf course were also fascinating.

We look forward to our much longer stay next summer! We can't ask for better hosts! Mahalo Nui.

Waikoloa Golf Resort Home

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed staying at this wonderful home on the Waikoloa Golf Resort. We enjoy walking and for us it was walking distance to the clubhouse, tennis courts, market and a couple of nice restaurants. However, a car is required to visit the beach and many other attractions found on the Big Island. The home is beautifully appointed and can easily accommodate a large family or two couples. Our stay was for the month of August, which was a little warm & humid (there is no A/C). The sunsets from the patio are gorgeous and the evenings usually cooled down nicely from the trade-winds. We recommend this home and would definitely consider a return trip!

A haven in paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This home exceeded our expectations in all regards--it was quiet, clean, spacious and had all the amenities we needed to make our visit to the Big Island memorable. Our flight arrived late in the evening, but the house lights were on for us and we felt welcomed from the moment we arrived. The fruit basket waiting for us in the kitchen was an unexpected bonus! We had the pleasure of meeting the caretakers while we were there--they are keeping the house in tip-top shape, and answered a few questions we had about the location of nearby shops. We will be recommending this home to our friends and hope to stay here again sometime in the future!

Beautiful vacation home with a Hawaiian feel!

  • 5 of 5

This house was a wonderful getaway on the golf course. We loved how spacious and well kept the place was, with a Hawaiian feel throughout. It was within close proximity to everything we needed, such as the village market, gas station, and within driving distance to some breath-taking beaches. One of the Big Island’s best beaches, Hapuna Beach, was a 20 minute drive from the house, and about the same distance the opposite way to A Bay Beach that accompanied Kings and Queens Shops and Lava Lava beach club. This was our first time to the Big Island, and we found that everything we needed was already in the home, from beach towels to tourist brochures and everything in between. We were a family of 4 staying in Waikoloa, and we found this house to be the best accommodation we’ve ever stayed in. It was everything that was depicted in the description and reviews and more! The owners were one phone call away and always quick to return emails. We would recommend this home to anyone wanting a relaxing, quiet vacation on the Big Island. – Higham family, Vancouver, B.C.

No unexpected negative surprises; everything first class as advertised. We loved our trip.

  • 5 of 5

I cannot imagine how things could be better. Early on prior to the trip, communication with the owner was helpful and always quick responses to our questions. This home is magnificent, very comfortable, super quiet location, clean, comfortable and just can't say enough. Sleeping with windows open and the cool breezes was most enjoyable. The Village Market is one minute away and we delighted picking up breakfast and bakery items each morning to bring back and enjoy on the veranda.....a very nice convenience. Time went by way too fast!!! The close by free public beach is the best....wonderful clean and beautiful beach. Hope we can make a return visit. Kona is very handy for restaurants that we prefer...even OutBack Steak House is there if/when one feels the need for a more mainland style menu. Our thanks to the fine folks for making their home available.
