We owned a timeshare on Hawaii for over 20 years and we purchased this condo in Waikoloa based on years of experience. Close to the finest beaches in Hawaii. Minutes from the best scuba diving in all the Hawaiian Islands. I am a diver and have spent time diving all the other islands. Kona has the best diving compared to the other islands.
We love Waikoloa Village because of the small town atmosphere and trade winds. All the tourists bake in the heat down on the beaches, which you can do if that is what you are after on your visit to Hawaii. Rule of thumb on Hawaii is the longer you live on the island the farther up the mountain you live to get the perfect temperature.
Hawaii has everything any of the other islands have only better and larger.
Farmers markets. (Large tropical bouquets for $10.) Fresh fruits and vegetables in abundance in Kona and Hilo markets.
No other island has the active Volcano, which is a must do item.
Our condo is fully furnished. Save the cost of eating out so you can do some of the fun outings on the island. Things you never think of to make your vacation the best ever. Cooler, beach chairs, boogie boards, and swim noodles are things you will pay extra for at a hotel.
We will also provide you with detailed local knowledge so your stay will be memorable. What beaches are worth the drive, where to see turtles every time, should you go to the green sand beach, where to buy gas are just some of the items that will save you time and money.

The Owner purchased this condo in 2011
We chose Waikoloa because it is near everything and just far enough away from all the tourist hustle and bustle.
It is also up the mountain a little so the weather is perfect.
We love the pool area where we can play a little cribbage in the afternoon, enjoy a gin and tonic, and flop in the water every once and awhile.
One of the cheaper places to stay on the Big Island. It is a great location if you are a golfer or you use the North end beaches. It is a long, slow drive to Kona in bumper to bumper traffic. The condo needs updating. The bathrooms have new tile but the kitchen is older with No food storage what so ever. We found several major problems when we arrived. The towels were so dirty we ended up having to buy our own, the dishwasher and microwave were broken, John did get them fixed but it took 10 days. The deck and stairs needs painting and a heavy cleaning. There is no air conditioning which caused some uncomfortable days and nights. The windows need to be replaced as the "trade winds" whistled through them on any windy night. One of the windows we were unable to open what so ever, If we opened the windows the very noisy neighbors kept us awake on most of the 2 month long stay. With the windows shut you could still hear the fighting and children screaming. The pool is very cold and had just be freshly painted, but we found most days it was very dirty with leaves and such. The hot tub jets were very weak. All in all, we enjoyed staying in Waikoloa but probably would not return here again.
Beautiful place to stay. No AC needed here as the daily breezes keep you comfortable day and night. Everything you need in a home away from home is supplied. Thank you for letting us enjoy Hawaii and "come home" to such a great place. Mahalo!!!
This is my second stay at this condo and will be returning again in the spring. The unit is fully furnished with everything I needed. Laundry machine is great so I didn't need to pack as much for the trip.
This clean, comfortable 2-bedroom condo is excellent value for this part of the Big Island. The host is very responsive and helpful.
Property met our expectations. Well kept. Lots of room for the price and owner is very easy to work with. This is our second stay at this property.
