Owners, Jeff & Tina Mentzos reside in California. We have been visiting Hawaii for over 20 years and finally found our little piece of paradise and would like to share that paradise with you. After a morning of activities, we like to relax at the oceanfront pool sipping mai tais at the only private oceanfront bar on the entire Kohala coast. We have traveled to many places but Hawaii is where we continue to return time & time again. Come be a part of our Ohana and share the Aloha that Hawaii is all about. We welcome you to our home.
The Owner purchased this condo in 2009
We traveled to many sun & sand vacation spots, but kept coming back to Hawaii time & time again. When we finally had the ability to purchase, we viewed over one hundred properties for sale before selecting Halii Kai. No other complex has the beautiful oceanfront sunsets/pool/restaurant/bar that is the epitome of Hawaii.
The only condo complex on the Kohala coast with its own private poolside bar & restaurant. There is nothing like falling into the pool after a long day of sun & sand, and watching the sunset every evening. Low density complex means you won't have to compete for parking spaces and there's lots of room to roam. There is also a private oceanfront fitness center with TVs & towels next to the pool. Let the tradewinds cool you down while you are working out.
We stayed at Jeff's place for 5 weeks over the holidays and it was fantastic! We have stayed at many complexes in Waikoloa resort over the years and this is BY FAR our favourite. The pool and amenities were fantastic and Jeff was so accommodating and easy going. He was great to deal with. The pictures do not to this place justice. Being able to walk out the back door and feel like we had our own "back yard" for our son to run around on was great. The BBQ was a nice treat and we spent many nights cooking at home and loved the lanai. We got to know some of the neighbours as well and then were so pleasant and friendly. The staff at the pool were great and were so warm and friendly every time we saw them. We have already booked for next year and can't wait to go back! Thanks Jeff!!
Booking with Jeff is an extremely pleasant experience. He responds extremely quickly and there are no hidden surprises. The property was clean, well maintained, and feels brand new. Check in was simple and parking was a non-issue, even with two vehicles. The gym and pool areas were close and commands a fantastic ocean view. Any visitor looking for a safe, spacious, and convenient place to stay will have to look no further than Jeff's Halii Kai unit. Thank you Jeff!
We stayed here for 3 nights and it was great. The location is prime and be condo is very spacious and comfortable. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to the big island. It is not far from all the great beaches. Will definitely be back!!
Whale watching at the ocean front pool was fantastic this year! Our stay at Jeff's condo was such a pleasant, relaxing vacation for us. Jeff was very laid back and easy to communicate with. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy ourselves for the 9 days we were there. The area was very quiet and peaceful. It is about 10 minute walk (or 1 minute drive) to the pool and about a 15 minute drive to some of the best beaches in Hawaii. Relaxing on the lanai in 80 degrees was such a pleasure, especially knowing it was 0 degrees back home. We got to see the black tipped sharks at sharks bay (Pelekane) and a pod of Spinner dolphins entertained us at the pool on our final morning.
Great place to stay. Very well located in Waikoloa Beach area close to markets and shopping. This resort area Hali'i Kai has a great pool that is right on the coast line and every time we went to the pool was able to see Whale's and watch the awesome sunsets. Also at the pool you have the ability to order drinks and get food at very reasonable prices. Drinks and food were excellent and found out unless you are staying at one of the hotels this was the only resort that had this as an option. Condo is very spacious and had lots of features. Cooked on the grill several times and in the kitchen. Included are some beach items in a closet that can be used. Really liked the lower level because we could enter from the front door or patio door in the back when we would walk down to the pool. Nice gated community. Close to sandy beaches right up the highway for those beach days. Stayed for 18 days. Loved it and would recommend. If asked would I stay here again, yes for sure.
We have stayed at Jeff's condo twice for 2-3 weeks at a time - the most recent stay this summer. We have a 5-year old, 3-year old and 1-year old and it is PERFECT for young kids! Our favorite part about it is it's on the first floor with a large, safe grassy area, so you can just open the lanai and let the kids run around. The pool is also perfect, with a separate shallow kids section. Hali'i Kai is beautiful and you're just a walk away from watching the dolphins swim at the hotel next door. Jeff is very responsive if there is anything at all wrong in the unit. And this is the best rate in the resort for a 3BR. I can't say enough great things about this place!
