About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Our Premium Ocean-View villa has sweeping views of the Waikoloa Beach golf course and the magnificent Pacific Ocean. The sunsets from our lanai are breathtaking. Building 8 is considered by many to be the best building at Hali'i Kai due to the way it is angled, to take advantage of the golf course and ocean view.

The villa is a 2 bedroom, 2 full bath ground floor unit which sleeps up to 4 comfortably.

If you're considering the Golf Villas, Waikoloa Colony Villas, The Shores, Vista Waikoloa, Kolea, Fairway Villas or anything in Mauna Lani, make sure to look at Hali'i Kai.

You'll get use of the beautiful Hali'i Kai Beach Club with a gorgeous pool (small children will love the shallow pool play area), fitness room, lounge area, restaurant and bar--all with a cliff-side view of the ocean. One of the most beautiful places on earth! You may never want to leave the resort.

The Ocean Club resort is a members-only bar/restaurant available only to owners/renters of Hali'i Kai.

Hali'i Kai is located next to the famous Waikoloa golf course with the Hilton Waikoloa just across the golf course. The King's Shops and Queen's Shops provide restaurants and shopping within the resort area. There are many beaches close by to enjoy. Hali'i Kai is approximately 20 minutes from the Kona airport.

We are on the Kohala Coast, the sunniest of all the Hawaiian islands with 350+ days of sun per year.

Our Villa includes:

-High-quality furnishings.

-42-inch flat screen TVs/DVD players in the main room as well as each of the bedrooms.

-King bed in Master Bedroom with a great ocean view.

-King bed in 2nd bedroom that can convert to 2 Twin XL beds.

-High Quality King Micro-fiber Sofa Sleeper in main room.

-The kitchen has granite counter-tops with new appliances and all you need to either cook your own meals or enjoy take-out on the lanai (this is where we eat most of our meals).

-A laundry room with a washer and dryer are also available in the unit.

-Weber BBQ on the Lanai.

-Free Wireless Internet.

-Telephone: Free calls to Mainland USA and Canada. Save on roaming charges.

-Beach chairs, Boogie boards, beach towels, snorkeling equipment and other amenities are provided for your convenience.

The Tennis Courts and Basketball Court are located in the resort as well, so bring your rackets!

During whale season (December-April) it's easy to see humpbacks swimming directly off the coast from the Ocean Club.

With sunsets off the horizon and the sounds of waves crashing in the background; it truly creates a pleasing and therapeutic environment for all to enjoy.

There is so much to do within just a few minutes (helicopter rides, beaches, luau's, shopping, fishing, golf, Whale-watching, Scuba, Snorkeling, incredible restaurants and so much more). The area and resort are truly ''hidden gems.'' Hali'i Kai provides a luxurious home base from which you can explore the entire Big Island and its many picturesque beaches. We will give guests great tips on where to eat, play and shop!

Sorry, no smoking or pets allowed.

About Jim and Debbie Stofer

Owner has two units at Hali'i Kai (5F and 8C). We have designed each unit with top-quality furnishings/linens for a luxurious and relaxing vacation for our guests. We have on-site help should you need anything and we value great communication with our guests.

Jim and Debbie Stofer purchased this villa in 2010

Why Jim and Debbie Stofer chose Kohala Coast

When looking to buy rental property, no other resort offered what Hali'i Kai does. No wonder it's rated #1 on Indepedent Travel sites. Halii Kai's pool/bar/restaurant combo is not offered at any other condo establishment. We often hear renters tell us that they have stayed other places on the Big Island but once they got to Hali'i Kai they realized they would no longer stay anywhere else.

What makes this villa unique

We furnish beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel equipment and much more so you don't have to pack it and get extra airline charges (most can carry-on luggage and save a lot of money). We also have a stroller and high-chair for those families with infants.

We will give our guests great tips for sightseeing, restaurants and beaches...we come to the property 3-4 times per year and have tried most of things we recommend (sometimes we hear from other guests/owners and are happy to share the 'hole in the wall' places as well that you'll never find in a guidebook).

Guestbook comments from the owner

This is our third time renting in Hali'i Kai and it was by far the best unit we have rented! The owners are fantastic and very attentive. The unit was extremely clean and really showed pride of ownership: lots of beach towels, quality linens and furnishings, and beautiful artwork, and all of the kitchen utensils you would need! They even have lots of beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear and coolers to use at the beach! The property is the best on the island: the pool is incredible and great for pre-schoolers, the amount of whales you see breeching right from your chaise lounge at the pool are just amazing, and the sunsets at night are sublime. The grounds are meticulously cared for and the setting very tropical. We stay on the big island every year, and we will definitely will re-rent this unit for sure!

Great for families, so-so for couples.

  • 4 of 5

This was a nice albeit modest-sized property that is a villa, that is, condo, as part of an 8 plex in a gated community of several 8 plex buildings with a nice free form pool and small fitness area. (Two block easy walk) Word to the wise, check your dates to see if it might be spring break or holiday season, as we soon discovered this was Easter break and many families were renting in Hali'i Kai. An extended family was renting the units around us, and the kids were kids, boisterous and busy...playing catch and lacrosse outside our lanai at sunset a nightly event.

The owners were prompt on addressing an issue we had, with the help of their on-Island contact person. We appreciated the use of nice beach gear, towels, snorkeling fins and masks, beach chairs, even boogie boards. And owner Debbie has a good informational notebook in the unit, listing area beaches, activities, restaurants, the like. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, pots and pans, and small appliances.

It happened the propane tank of the BBQ grill was empty the night we wanted to grill some fresh mahi mahi and we were too lazy to go to another grill on the property, but that might be a suggestion for future...have the on-site person check these things before guests arrive.

All in all, we enjoyed our stay, but the idea that you could enjoy sunsets on the lanai was not possible this week. Check your dates!

Wonderful ocean view, beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We love Hali'i Kai and this condo did not disappoint. The best ocean view / sunset view from patio and walking distance to pool. Condo is furnished lovely and had many pantry items and beach gear for us to use. Owners were very easy to communicate with.

Great Hali'i Kai property!

  • 5 of 5

I'll start at the end. 8C is the third Hali'i Kai condo we've stayed at and the check-out procedures were a breeze...lower the blinds and raise the thermostat. Other owners in Hali'i Kai and VRBO owners in general aren't this easy going. Not that providing housekeeping services on our vacations is an issue, but Debbie and Jim keep it simple all the way from the beginning. The condo was very comfortable and had carpet in the bedrooms (helps keep the sand out of the bed!) The kitchen included everything you'd need to prepare, serve and eat a meal. The view from the lanai was perfect for viewing the ocean and sunsets. We even saw a whale breach one morning while drinking coffee. Pretty cool. Additionally, the condo is a short walk to the pool. We would without hesitation recommend 8C to anyone considering staying in this part of the Big Island.

Best Location

  • 5 of 5

Two of us spent three weeks at this condo in Hali’i Kai. It was the perfect setting. We loved the view of the golf course and ocean from the lanai. Very soothing. The sunsets were stunning. The condo is exceptionally quiet for sleeping and the beds are comfortable. Each morning before the sun rose and each night before going to bed, I walked out on the lawn behind the lanai to watch the stars. A real treat.

The Ocean Club within the resort complex is an easy walk and so handy with the private bar and restaurant (good food), exercise area, and pool.

The unit is well maintained and the owner was very responsive.

We appreciated the grill on the lanai, where we cooked fresh fish. When served along with a salad made of local ingredients, we enjoyed delicious and easy dinners. Our favorite place to buy fish was at “Da Fish House” in Kawaihae, a short drive north along the highway. The building doesn’t look like much, but you can purchase fish caught the same day.

We like to golf and find the Big Island to have the best courses and greatest variety. We enjoy all the courses along the Kohala Coast as well as the Big Island Country Club, which is inland and at a higher elevation.

Well Maintained and Comfortable

  • 4 of 5

The property was spotless upon arrival and clearly well maintained. The owners left helpful information for visitors as well as instructions on how to get assistance if a problem arose. We actually had occasion to use this, as the A/C malfunctioned while we were there and the owner showed up quickly to resolve the problem. The furniture and fixtures were comfortable and the kitchen well equipped. (We would strongly suggest adding a second set of towels in both baths so that there is no waiting for the washer and dryer to finish a load.) The unit is not ideally located for sunsets on the lanai, and there is a short walk to the beach, but the community amenities and location are very nice, with golf course views. We would stay there again.
