About the property

Villa, 3 Bedrooms + 2 Futon bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6+)

Aloha, e komo mai (welcome)!! Come experience our luxurious villa at the prestigious Hali’i Kai oceanfront gated community conveniently located on the sunny Kohala Coast on the Big Island’s Waikoloa Resort where we average 7” of rain a year (the driest in the state). Boasting 2 18-hole championship world-class golf courses and shopping, our hale (home) offers an opportunity to experience a true unmatched island retreat. Note:…you may quickly feel the affects or our ‘Polynesian paralysis’ before long.

AMENITIES: One of Hali'i Kai’s famous features is it's private ocean front club with a magnificent multi level free form pool with aqua loungers, waterfalls, sand bottom lava spa hot tub and attached Keiki pool. Adjacent is a café restaurant and fitness area with unobstructed views overlooking the blue Pacific. Adorned with balmy island breezes at oceans edge, our oceanfront club features spectacular views, BBQS available to enjoy with family and friends, an outdoor garden covered lounge area, luxurious bathroom facility, poolside cabanas, with a relaxing atmosphere. All year round, glorious sunsets are the norm and during our winter months, take pleasure in lots of whale watching and view of the incredible surf.

VILLA: Conveniently situated in the center of Hali’I Kai, less than 400 yards from the ocean, our villa is luxuriously furnished and decorated reflecting the understated Hawaiian elegance found amongst top notched world-class resorts and hotels. As original kama`aina (local) owners, we are fortunate to have this fabulous Villa that Centex (the developer) built with such style and elegance. Our lanai is the perfect place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or perhaps an ocean view sunset dinner while grilling on our new Weber grill complete with cooking utensils. Sunbathing or simply watching golfers on the adjacent lawn area on this ground floor unit without stairs makes for easy access. The Villa is primarily decorated and appointed with distinctive designer furnishings featuring Hawaiian elegance with a hint of an Asian flair. The Master bedroom has a Cal king bed (from which an ocean view may be enjoyed:), large private master bath with granite counter tops with dual sinks, large walk in shower with bench and a separate deep soaking tub. The guest bedroom has 2 xl twins (which can be converted to a full Cal King at your request), and the other guestroom features a queen size bed, detailed accents with views of the gorgeous Mauna Kea and Kohala Mountains with beautiful morning sunrises. The guest bathroom is complete with tub/shower, granite counter tops and sink. The attention to detail won’t be missed. The relaxing living area has a couch, chairs and ottoman, wall mounted LCD panel, blueray player, premium cable with HBO. Adjacent is an elegant dining area with seating for 6+ with a chandelier. The upgraded kitchen is complete and fully stocked with everything from an espresso maker with enough cooking utensils and gadgets to make a full scrumptious Thanksgiving meal. Equipped with stainless steel appliances, granite countertops & bar stools, you’ll want for nothing. Our hale has a laundry room with washer/dryer and laundry supplies. We have complimentary High-speed wireless Internet, telephone for complimentary long distant calls to all Hawaiian Island, Canada, Mexico and all of USA. We have 2 bikes, beach chairs, boogie boards, basketball, tennis racquets (courts are across the street).

RESORT: The Waikoloa Beach Resort has upscale shopping, gorgeous black, green & white sand beaches (ask us we'll tell you some well kept secrets), petroglyph sites (rock etchings used as the ancient form of Hawaiian communication), 2 golf courses. Our favorite restaurant is located in the Queens shops right on the resort, Sansei’s…..and not just because our son Justin works there. We'll include a complimentary certificate to ROY'S for their unmatched scrumptious Chocolate Soufflé. You haven't lived until you've experienced this!!! As our guest on the resort, you are entitled to special green fees at the Beach golf course and the Kings golf course.


While there are others, we have something unique to offer with our condo:

*We use Castle Resort, the only onsite rental management company. If you have any challenges or emergencies, they’re available 24/7.

*Ground floor unit (no stairs to climb-handicap accessible). New Weber grill on lanai, watch golfers tee off from the 14 hole tee box. The beautiful adjacent lawn area is perfect for sunbathing, family fun; how about a game of smash ball or croquet?

*Ready for an outdoor adventure? We got you covered! Two bicycles, tennis rackets, basketball, beach chairs, cooler and boogie boards.

*Tennis court and basketball courts are right across the street from our unit.

About Laurie Jo

OWNERS: I was born and raised in Hawaii (3rd generation), met my husband Paul in '78 and have been residing together on the Big Island since while working in luxury hotels, destination management and hospitality industry. We are committed to providing excellence. This means being creative, detailed, informed, and in synch with your objectives as a visitor and guest of our Hale. We are also focused on extending and sharing our cultural and spirit of aloha. This means ensuring you are treated to the warmth, generosity, diversity, and heritage of the island and it's people.

Laurie Jo purchased this villa in 2014

Why Laurie Jo chose Waikoloa Village

Location, location, location!! Because we are established here on island and in the luxury hospitality industry, it didn't take long to realize how special this complex and unit really are. There's a sense of warmth and Aloha spirit every time we step foot in our Hale. We know the area very well and had lots to choose from, but something magical about this place sets it apart from all others. This is our second HK property and our dream villa. We hand't planned on buying another but this was the only other unit we would have ever wanted and it became available when our good friends put it on the market.

What makes this villa unique

There is such a peaceful, serene and tranquil feeling within the Hale and complex yet one can be moments from action, restaurants, shopping, cultural activities, golf and much much more. Although we live on island, we love our mini vacations at the beach!!

Lovely Hawaiian Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We had an excellent stay at Hali'i Kai, and particularly this unit. Very spacious and full of light during the day, and, from the lanai, a great place to watch the evening sunset. A short walk to the west is a wonderful restaurant, bar, pool and exercise facility right on the property which offers the feeling of a resort. The unit itself was very clean, well decorated and appointed with everything you need for an at home experience. Sleeping accommodations were very comfortable. Additionally, the management was exceedingly responsive to our needs throughout our stay. We'll be back for sure. Highly recommended.

Fantastic and convenient accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here recently for a week and thoroughly enjoyed our stay, the sunsets from the porch are phenomenal, very well stocked kitchen and great beach equipment!! We were very happy to see the boogie boards, snorkeling, umbrellas and chairs- these made all the difference in enjoying the wonderful beaches. Great accommodations to come home to each day, definitely recommend!

A beautiful and relaxing place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We spent three wonderful nights in this property. We had two families of 4 and had plenty of space. The condo is beautifully and serenely decorated and met all our needs. The sunsets from the lanai were so gorgeous, and there was lots of grass for the kids to play in the "backyard." The pool is a short walk or drive away and is right next to the ocean, with beautiful views (they have pool towels for you). The property is not far from one of the most beautiful sand beaches in the world (Hapuna). We enjoyed dinner and the Lava Lava Beach Club on our last night--it was really fun to eat right on the beach. Waikoloa itself is really convenient; there's lots of shops, a grocery store, and restaurants. We also really enjoyed the free Hula performance they do in the Queen's shopping area a couple of times of week. I really recommend it. The main hiccup we experienced was when we arrived, there weren't any beach towels, one of the fold-up single floor mattresses was missing (there were supposed to be two), and we didn't have any spare bedding for the floor beds. Fortunately, the resort management company handled all of these things for us, and it wasn't a problem. I tell you this only so you know to check for the things when you arrive, if you're a larger group, so you have time to get them before nighttime, and so you know that the management company can get anything you might need or are missing. It's handy to have them on site! If we return to the Big Island, and I really hope we do, we would definitely come back here! Thank you, Laurie Jo!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your comments, very helpful. We've recently had some changes in the on site management company and apologize for their error. Another reason I'm so glad we're based on island and near by to be the back up in the rare cases that something falls through the cracks!!! Never the less, I'm sorry you had to be inconvenienced. So glad you enjoyed your stay, appreciate your kokua and am hopeful you'll return.

This villa is heavenly!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four stayed here for 10 nights, and we LOVED this place. The entire property is gorgeous and fantastically well maintained, and it's very private, secure and quiet. The maintenance and management personnel are very friendly as well. The pool is gorgeous and was not over-populated almost every day. It was very peaceful to go to the pool and lounge around. It was fun to go to the pool and watch the sunsets in the evenings and be there when the torches were lit. The villa was wonderful, and it was nice to have the kitchen well-stocked. We were able to cook anything/everything we wanted. My daughter was making coffee the first morning, and the measuring spoon broke during use. We mentioned it to Laurie Jo, and she ran out and bought a new one and had it to us the same day! That is great service. The bed in the master is a king and was super comfy. The master bath was awesome and spacious. The huge shower was great to use. There is a beautiful view of the ocean from the master, so you'd wake up and immediately see the ocean out your window. You don’t really need to pack a lot of clothes thanks to the washer/dryer to keep things clean. Can’t say enough about the great owners. Laurie Jo was very nice and extremely quick to respond to my emails. She and her husband have a garage at the unit, and it’s full of fun things…Such as four bikes, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel equipment, a soft cooler, body boards and more. The Hali'i Kai is in the Waikoloa resort area, and the weather is dryer and sunnier than the Kona area. The huge Hilton resort is across from the Hali'i Kai (separated by a golf course), and we would take walks over there in the morning and check out the dolphins at the Dolphin Quest (open to the public). Waikoloa is a great location and also a great starting point to travel to Hilo via Saddle Road. Waikoloa is also very close to the Mauna Lani resort area which has several points of interest and some good shopping and a good grocery store. Close by Waikoloa Village has a nice grocery store as well. All in all this was a perfect vacation made possible by this perfect 3 bedroom villa. Staying here is a ‘must’ if you want to have the perfect Hawaiian vacation. You just can’t go wrong here.

We truly enjoyed our stay! The view of the golf course and ocean was wonderful! The condo was very inviting and the kitchen has everything you would need to make meals for your family! The clubhouse and pool area was beautiful as well. Great vacation! We highly recommend this place!
