2 Bedroom, 2 Bathroom Condominium Close To Golf And The Beach!
Upon entering our suite, you'll see the large windows in the living room, the kitchen to your left and the second bedroom and bath to your right. Continuing into the living area, the master suite is to your left and the sliding doors to the L-shaped lanai are to your right.
Our most recent improvement is complete replacement of all the vertical blinds in the suite. The suite features 9-foot ceilings throughout and we've highlighted this with new living room furniture, including a comfy sofa and loveseat set, new end tables, and even new lamps! The 42-inch TV and DVD/Blu-Ray are brand new too. Two sets of sliding glass doors open from the living room to the wrap-around lanai with views to the north and west for watching those awesome Hawaiian sunsets! The lanai has seating for four around the glass-topped table, plus two chaise lounges and another table perfect for those late afternoon drinks.
The master suite features a king size bed, triple dresser, new lamps on the bedside tables, and brand new 32-inch HD TV. Mirrored sliding doors on the closet add dimension to the room, which looks out over a sea of lava toward the golf fairway. A palm leaf ceiling fan helps keep guests cool.
The master bathroom is roomy with two sinks, huge spa bathtub and separate, completely redone shower, and separate lavatory room to boot. There's also another closet with mirrored sliding doors to finish out the room.
The second bedroom is on the opposite side of the suite from the master bedroom and has a brand new queen bed, double dresser, 28-inch HD TV, and a large closet with mirrored sliding doors. The room opens directly to the lanai through sliding glass doors. The adjacent bathroom features a completely redone shower and separate spa tub.
The kitchen features many new appliances and utensils including a Black & Decker coffeemaker, Cuisinart blender, and Kitchen Aid 4-slice toaster. The kitchen is also equipped with a cook-top stove, microwave oven, traditional oven, and a large side-by-side fridge/freezer complete with ice maker.
The dining room is directly adjacent to the kitchen and looks out over the lava field to the golf fairway. The glass-topped table seats 5 easily. And the new bar stools make conversation at the counter easy!

About Karen Panter
Two couples, Mark and Karen (left in photo), Barbara and Scott (right), purchased the property in summer 2012. We all reside on the mainland, Scott and Barbara in northern California and Mark and Karen in southern Wyoming.
Karen Panter purchased this Condo in 2012
Why Karen Panter chose Puako
Mark and Karen had stayed at The Shores in 2004 and thoroughly enjoyed the exceptional suites and the proximity to A-Bay, the Hilton, the shopping areas (Kings and Queens), and being so close to Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Volcanoes National Park. When the opportunity arose to purchase this unit, we all jumped on it!
What makes this Condo unique
The Shores are close to A Bay, shopping, and golf. Numerous beaches line the Kohala Coast, each unique in its own way. Nineteen miles south is Kona International Airport and a few miles further south is the city of Kailua-Kona. The Shores and the Waikoloa area are excellent starting points to explore the Big Island of Hawaii!

Great location on the island and in Waikoloa itself. Good walking distance to restaurants & shopping
This was our third stay at this property and think it's just great. The two bedrooms are good size and separated by the living room so good for two couples too. The lanai is wonderful to sit out on in the morning and evening and it's nice to walk out on the property without dealing with stairs. The kitchen is stocked nicely with tools and utensils if you like to cook. There's even a nice selection of spices for your use. While the laundry is smaller in a stackable unit, it works great. The closet holds an assortment of beach/pool type stuff: beach chairs, pool noodles, boogie boards, ice chest, etc. We've donated a few ourselves. :-) So definitely check the closet after you check in before heading to the store to buy more. We're not big pool users as we prefer the beach but the pool and jacuzzi look great and I'm sure a family would love them. While it would be fabulous to have access to your own BBQ on the lanai, the community BBQ's are convenient enough for your use.
Over the last three years, we've had a minor issue in the condo the last two. Both the owner, Karen, and the on island representative, JT, are very helpful and resolved our issues timely. I highly recommend this property. Can't wait to go back! Aloha.
Our family loved our stay! It was easy to walk to the beach and stores and the kids loved the pool. I would highly recommend it.
We are always happy our guests enjoyed their stay! We chose The Shores because of easy access to shopping and the beach, not to mention amenities like the pool. We hope you'll visit again.
Enjoyed our 2nd stay at this property.
Thank you for a wonderful 5 week stay at your Shores at Waikoloa condo! This is the 2nd time we've rented this unit & would do so again - loved the peace & quiet. The landscaping was being redone so we couldn't sit in he sun at the condo but the pool is wonderful with sun & shade options. We appreciated laundry & dish soap & paper products being supplied for our entire stay (not just a starter supply). Karen was easy to work with & very responsive to our questions & concerns (toaster needs to be replaced) both before & during our stay. Mahalo for sharing you little piece of paradise with us!
We appreciate repeat guests - tells us we must be doing something right! We hope future guests will come back again and again.
Spacious garden condo
Great location. Everything you could need. Lovely condo and super resort area. Super for golfers.
One of the features of our suite we like best is all the room! We also try to make it easy on travelers so we supply most things guests need.
Comfortable, quiet and relaxing with beautiful surroundings
It sounds like you enjoyed your stay! Consider us again the next time you visit the Big Island.
very peaceful and great location.
The place has a corner lanai looking out onto the golf course and across a ravine of lava rock. It was very peaceful and relaxing, and the kitchen was well supplied with a toaster, coffee machine, and plenty of pots and pans. My family an I had a wonderful time.
During the particular week I was there the condo next door was being renovated, but this only caused minimal problems which the property manger handled easily.
We enjoy the suite for the same reasons you mentioned and we're happy to hear you had a great time. We are also glad to hear the remodeling next door didn't cause too much disruption for you and your family. Unfortunately there is little we can do about such things. Keep us in mind for your next visit to the Big Island!
