One Bedroom, 1 1/2 Bath Ground Floor Condo With Lovely, Private Garden Lanai

Welcome to our cozy, peaceful retreat at the Shores of Waikoloa. Unit 108 or ZenBeachCondo as we have recently nicknamed it is located at ground level in the Sandalwood Tower with a wonderful wrap around lanai perfect for sunbathing and curling up with your favorite novel.

The interior of the condo has been recently remodeled and is modern,clean, tastefully furnished and accented with treasures we have collected on our travels.

This is a great place to relax with all the comforts of home and at the same time feel the tropical beauty of Hawaii.

The remodel includes new floorings throughout, new kitchen appliances, granite counters in kitchen and both bathrooms and a new, oversized walk in shower in the master bath.

The living room offers comfy, tropical furniture, a flat screen TV for your entertainment needs and of course free high speed internet. In additions there is a blue ray DVD player ready to stream Netflix, Amazon Prime, etc., and a stereo with CD player and Ipod/ phone dock.

The dining area seats four people and looks out towards Mauna Kea summit. There is additional seating for 2 at the kitchen bar.

The modern kitchen has all new appliances, oven with separate broiler compartment, glass cooktop, all stainless dishwasher, deep double stainless sink, side-by-side fridge/ freezer with ice dispenser and filtered water and a microwave .

The outside Lanai has two chaise lounges for sunbathing and a wicker seating group perfect for enjoying an evening cocktail.

The unit has AC throughout, but often it is not needed, specially in the evening since you get nice breezes that bring the floral smells of tropics into your home.

The Shores is a unique beachside community located between the ocean and 2 Championship golf courses and adjacent to dining and shopping and recreation all within walking distance .The complex has nice , tropical landscaping, ponds and waterfalls and it is quiet with a low building density.

About Kerstin Preyasi Exter

We sailed to Hawaii from the South Pacific in 1991 and the Island welcomed us so much that we are still here today! We love to travel and explore new places preferably from a nice , home-like base. We used our travel experiences to create a welcoming home away from home for you.

We are woodworkers by trade and have included our expertise as well as our love for detail and beauty into our properties.

We love local food and cooking so our kitchen is well equipped.

Kerstin Preyasi Exter purchased this condo in 2014

Why Kerstin Preyasi Exter chose Kohala Coast

We have other vacation rental properties in Hawi

( HomeAway #336353 and #346161) on the North end of the Big Island in the county side, but we really do enjoy our time near the beach and we love the apartment at the Sandalwood Tower and the Shores at Waikoloa because it is quiet , peaceful, with beautifully landscaped grounds and within walking distance to the beach and good dining.

Awesome owners, GREAT location and community

  • 5 of 5

The owners were so great to deal with. Lot's of communication throughout the process. We had a hitch in our plans and the owners were there to meet us and rectify it above and beyond our expectations. The area is so great for: beach access, shopping access, walks, running, biking. The area is clean, safe and so well kept up. The condo is in beautiful condition and the photos of the inside are accurate.

I would not hesitate to contact this owner if you are looking for a condo for your dream vacation.

Can't wait to go back again next year. Thanks Kerstin.

Loved our July stay in the Zen Condo

  • 5 of 5

We wouldn't hesitate to recommend this condo. Clean, spacious and very quiet. We loved the beach chairs, beach towels and boogie board provided. There is a handy outdoor drying rack perfect for hanging up wet swim suits. The washing machine and dryer worked great. Lovely pool area was virtually empty every evening. Huge shower was fantastic, but tile floor can be a bit slippery when you get out, so be careful. We drove up to Waikoloa Village to do our grocery shopping. Overall it was a wonderful getaway and we had a fantastic time.

Everything you need for a.magical vacation

  • 5 of 5

This is a lovely unit on the ground floor with a wrap around lanai. It comes equipped with SO MANY AMENITIES : coffee grinder and maker, beach chairs and umbrella, snorkeling equipment, cable & wifi, washer & dryer, dishwasher, and so on and so on! It's the home I'd furnish for myself if I could live in Hawaii. Kerstin couldn't be more gracious.

A lovely, spacious condo in a very nice development

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just spent 3 weeks in Zen Condo and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. As a previous guest noted, the condo does not have a view or a sunny exposure; however, that likely contributes to cooler temperatures in the condo - which is good! The condo has everything one needs and is clean and attractive. We really appreciated the lovely clay tennis courts (complete with ice-cold drinking water) and the beautiful, well-maintained pool. There is a 15-minute walk beside anchialine ponds to the shore, where there are gorgeous sunsets and paths to the north and south. We found the location to be central for visits to Waimea, Hawi, Waipi'o, Mauna Kea, and lots of beaches and parks. It's also a nice walk to the Queen's Market and the King's Shops. Glad we chose this spot!
