About the property

Come and enjoy all the amenities of a fully stocked three bedroom condominium at Hali'i Kai. Our beautiful condo (in Building 6) in Hali'i Kai (in the Waikoloa Beach Resort area) is the best value in the area. Hali’i Kai is one of only two oceanfront properties in Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Big Island of Hawaii. The Resort has something for everyone: scuba diving, snorkeling, whale watching, fishing, a beautiful beach, shopping, and dining. Hali’i Kai is a newer complex (built in 2006), with beautiful architecture and immaculate, tropical landscaping.

Our favorite feature at Hali'i Kai is the stunning oceanfront Ocean Club featuring a large, resort quality, multi-level, oceanfront lagoon-style pool with a waterfall, partially-submerged aqua lounge chairs, children's wading area, all with 180 degree view of the Pacific! It also features an oceanfront, open air Exercise Hale with varied top-of-the-line fitness equipment. Enjoy Hali'i Kai’s own private restaurant and bar...AND it's own chefs! The club features several choices for outdoor covered and uncovered dining and lounging areas, spa-quality towels and facilities, as well as BBQ area. And the Coconut Grove, a tropical garden with picnic tables, BBQ grills and hammocks for taking naps while swinging between coconut trees. There is a tennis court and a half-court basketball conveniently located across from our condo. Hali’i Kai truly is a top-notch, yet casual private boutique resort, complete with concierge services. These resort amenities are all included for our guests.

We want everyone to enjoy the opportunity to experience such a beautiful and tranquil place, so we keep our rates exceptionally low. The Resort will charge $20 per night for access to the private pool, restaurant and workout area. This fee covers all guests. If guests use credit card for booking, the 2.5% service fee is subtracted from the damage deposit.

Fun family vacation

  • 5 of 5

loved having a home away from home to relax in. Kitchen is really well equipped. Loved the stove. Appreciated the info about groceries. The binder was a great organizational tool and easy to use. The privacy of the back porch was so nice for those up early and late. It was well used. POOL--fabulous, lots of night swims. Our adult kids loved having a drink in the pool. Bar tender was great too!

Found location to be centrally located for all we did. You can't eliminate driving because of the nature of the island.

Beautiful condo and location

  • 5 of 5

This condo is in a gated community close to the Hilton Waikoloa. The condo is beautiful, well maintained, well stocked with kitchen, beach and sport items, has a view of the golf course, distant view of the ocean, and is across the street from the tennis and basketball courts. Short walk or quick drive to the pool which has amazing sunset views. It is also a central location if you plan to drive around the Big Island. We would definitely stay here again!

Great location, value, property, and service! Will definitely return!

  • 5 of 5

Our blended family of 6 had a terrific first visit to the Big Island. The condo was well stocked with beach gear, and even basketball for the courts across the st (huge bonus for my 19 yo college player who shot hoops every morning and evening). Pantry and fridge had all of essential condiments. Well stocked kitchen. Beds were all comfy. Salt water pool beautiful and quiet. Great work out facilities overlooking the ocean. Great running in the area and easy stroll to the Kings and Queens shops for food/coffee and then cut thru on Petroglyphics path. So many gorgeous beaches in the area, with short drive to all of them. Definitely would return and stay here again! Grayson, the owner, was great to work with!

Great location

  • 4 of 5

Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and would consider staying here again. The owners were quick to respond prior to our booking and this was one of our reasons for choosing their condo.

The property was beautifully landscaped and the pool was perfect for our 15 month old and 5.5 year old. The grocery store, shops, and great beaches were in close proximity - which was great.

The condo unit was clean and comfortable. A/C worked when needed and the weather was fantastic. We enjoyed the nice little seating area outside and the grill was also clean and cooked evenly. It was also nice to have a pack 'n play and highchair for our little one!

Removed 1 star for the following reasons:

1.) We didn't receive our entry codes before our arrival. We got in at 10p, and had to wait at the gate while figuring out how to get a hold of the owner. Thankfully, we did reach the owners, but not a great arrival experience with 2 little ones and a long flight.

2.) In the listing - it says resort amenities are all included for guests. When we got there, we found it is $10 / day for the pool access. We didn't mind paying (the pool was quite a treat) - but not accurate in the listing.

3.) The kitchen cooking equipment was just ok. We did a lot of cooking at the house, and knives were dull, cookware was limited and not of great quality.

4.) Nice to have boogie boards and beach chairs available, but we ended up not using them because they were falling apart. We ended up buying a few things for the kids and then just adding it to the condo collection for the next family.

5.) Dishwasher didn't really clean well and it was SO LOUD.

Again, minor things and we would certainly consider booking again! Thank you for letting us stay in your home!
