About Joy Stevenson

We are an American family who has lived in Singapore for over 20 years, and now reside in South Africa. Our family has enjoyed coming to our Hawaii house over the years as Hawaii is a wonderful mix of Asia and America.

Joy Stevenson purchased this condo in 2000

Why Joy Stevenson chose Kohala Coast

We like the Vistas because they are very quiet. The construction of the Vistas is superb and they are very well maintained. We deliberately picked a unit away from the street plus we have a lovely view of Mauna Kea.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! Joy, wonderful condo. The Big Island is great, so now for the adventures! Got to swim with the honos!

Wendy C.

Thanks for the tip about the book (The Big Island Revealed). Spent hours snorkeling at Hapuna and Mauna Kea Beach. Saw John Keane Slack Key Show at the King's Shops - fantastic. Great holiday.

Gae and Howard M.

Great place - all the comforts of home plus more - and the Big Island!! Amazing!

Great location in Waikoloa

  • 3 of 5

We love the look and the location of Vista Waikoloa, right between the Hilton and the Marriott with only a short walk to A-Bay. The condo is well-supplied and generously stocked with kitchen ware, beach "toys", towels, etc. But I had to give it only 3 stars for two reasons ... 1) there were avoidable problems with the unit and 2) though addressed with owner almost immediately, they were not corrected during our 9-night stay. I don't think I'm any more picky about my lodgings than the average person but the shower was mildewed badly when we arrived (I did some scrubbing myself to make it acceptable) and the dryer lint trap was falling apart and catching clothes against the baffles inside. Master bedroom ceiling fan made scary sounds, and we reported other small issues that were fixable. The whole place just needs a serious cleaning & updating! Also it sounds nice to be right on the golf course ( ... and it IS a very pretty view!) but when the mowers arrive at 4:30 AM, not so great! And the workers chattering next door at some gathering spot behind a hedge during the day wasn't the best either! All told, we will definitely consider Vista Waikoloa in the future, but probably not this unit again.

Owner's Response: I am sorry that you had these problems. I thank you for bringing these to my attention, and I did my best to try to rectify these ASAP. I did pass your comment about the cleanliness of the shower to the cleaning company and I hope that they are more diligent in the future. My previous handyman went AWOL on me, but I have hired a new one and he has fixed all of these issues and replaced the dryer lint catcher. I do understand that our unit has not been totally updated and therefore, the rental price reflects this. About the mowing in the morning – there is nothing I, or other Vista owners can do about this.

Great experience!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time! The place was spacious and had everything we could have needed. It was exactly what we had been hoping for. Small touches like a dish sponges, soaps, and even laundry supplies made our stay most pleasant. The location was superb for our needs, had stores nearby, and was easy to get in and out of. I would most definitely stay here again!

Great family location

  • 5 of 5

Great unit, fully stocked, has Everything you will need. Beautiful pool and jacuzzis. Huge lanai overlooking golf course with plenty of seating for relaxing or eating outside. Many items like snorkeling gear, bogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas etc. Kitchen fully stocked, pots and pans, dishes, glasses, microwave, coffee maker. We ate most of our meals here. Short walk to beach, hieroglyphics, 2 different shopping areas both with markets to buy anything you need and plenty of restaurants. Ideally located to adventure out to the north or south for sightseeing excursions. Highly recommend staying here. Very clean and quiet.

Good location

  • 4 of 5

We had a great time in Waikoloa, and this place made it home for us. The price was budget friendly and the location was great, really close to the best white sand beaches. We loved seeing the wild life at A-bay. There were always sea turtles, we saw a manta ray swim int the fresh water pond, and the Waikoloa cats stole our hearts!

This rental was spacious and facilitated cooking on vacation, and for nights off there is a grill super close. You can see it from the lanai.

Sometimes its really windy in Waikoloa, but we still thought it was the best place to stay on the island.

We enjoyed our stay very much.

Great location, everything you need

  • 5 of 5

This unit has not been renovated like many of the surrounding units, but it's very well appointed and reasonably priced. The owners were very easy to communicate with. No problem with the internet or AC - a must for us. The location is ideal. We will definitely stay here again!

Everything we needed!

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay and everything we needed was provided in the condo. There was an abundance of towels and the kitchen was stocked with useful items. The lanai closet was filled with items - we enjoyed the Tommy Bahama chairs and umbrella for beach days (Hapuna beach was a favorite and only a few minutes by car). The lanai view is beautiful and peaceful over the golf course with table and chairs or chaise lounges to sit on. The pictures of the condo are accurate although I would say the condo is even better in person! Joy sent information ahead of our stay with a lot of great info including dining and favorite activities which was very helpful.
