This 1 Bedroom 1 Bath unit has a comfortable breezy feeling. Comfortable King sized bed, fully appointed Kitchen, and a large wrap around lanai. This is the perfect place to wind down and enjoy your vacation. Head down to a fabulous restaurant, explore the shops, or head straight to the beach with the crystal clear blue water of the Pacific Ocean and soft white sands.
Lin and I have been friends for many years When Lin decided to purchase this condo, she called me and asked me to take care of the management for her. My husband Rick and I own a small Real Estate company here on the Big Island called South Island Realty.
Lin Tottle purchased this condo in 2012
We want to provide a comfortable, affordable, well located place to land. We want to help others discover what we already have...that the slower pace, the Hawaiian style of living here is good for the soul, you will relax in body and mind in this tropical paradise, and that's a good thing.
The spirit of aloha.
We enjoyed the Shores, lovely condo in a lovely location. Wish VRBO fees hadn't raised the price so much. Clean, helpful tips on beaches, convenient. Missed having a concierge to recommend restaurants.
The condo was wonderful, clean, very well equipped for a vacation condo. Beach chairs and towels were much appreciated. Every question we had was answered promptly. We would definitely stay here again. Location good only 10 minute walk to ocean front.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Lin’s condo at The Shores. The night we arrived, it felt like our home away from home. The condo is very clean and well equipped. The wi-fi is very fast and reliable. We stayed almost six weeks and were very sad to have to leave this beautiful piece of paradise.
The large lanai was like an extra room for us. When we weren’t out and about at the beaches or exploring the island and when we weren’t sleeping or cooking in the condo, we were on the lanai. We took all our meals there. In the morning we would listen to the birds singing; at night we would listen to the palm fronds and the leaves rustling in the trade winds.
The condo complex is very quiet and the grounds are beautiful. The pool is a short walk from the apartment. Parking is very close to the building and even when we were out late at night, we never had a problem finding a parking spot when we came back.
We were really happy to be staying in Waikoloa Resort as it is a short drive to our favourite beaches and it’s a shorter drive from there than from Kailua-Kona to many of the places we visit on a regular basis.
Lin is an excellent host. She responded to all our inquiries very quickly during the booking process. When we arrived at the condo, we found that she had left a beautiful basket of fruit from her farm for us. It was such a treat to have fresh local fruit for breakfast. Lin also invited us to her farm where we were able to pick more fresh fruit to replenish our basket for the second half of our stay. Lin was also extremely prompt in returning our security deposit.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this condo to family or friends who were looking for an excellent place to stay in the Waikoloa Resort area and we look forward to a return visit.
We enjoyed our stay at this treasure-of-a-find condo! The owner was very courteous and helpful and even invited us to come to her home to pick fresh fruit from her orchard! Everything we needed was right at our fingertips. The location was perfect for our needs. Having family on both sides of the island (Hilo and Kona) made this a halfway point for us to meet. The owner had Kona coffee there for our use. Imagine the fragrance of it as we woke up! M-m-m, that's Hawaii! Waikoloa Shores is an ideal place to be as it's so close to the ocean and you're just 20-25 minutes from the airport, and Costco! From there, you're not very far from Kailua if you want to do more major, local shopping.
Our best view this time, was the snow-capped Mauna Kea! What an awesome view when we landed! Imagine this Island mountain being draped with newly fallen snow almost halfway down! Ig you wanted cooler weather, driving up to Waimea, to Paniolo country is always a treat too! We would stay again and will suggest it to our friends who decide to go to the Big Island for an adventure or relaxation!
The corner deck is spacious as is the condo! In November the sun hits the deck during the day which can be pleasant for sun worshippers and comfortable when the Trades are active -- it can also be fairly warming. We used the AC only overnight one time during our short stay. There is limited space in the kitchen area but it is definitely adequate for the time spent in the condo. We loved the privacy of the condo as well as the beautiful grounds. We have stayed in the islands numerous times and found that we absolutely love the Waikoloa area! We'd put it at a 10 on a scale of 1 to 10 -- that's how wonderful and safe it is! The Shores in particular are quite lovely -- you might find yourself wondering what it would take to buy a unit while here!
Staying at the shores was amazing. we arrived very easily from the airport following the info from Lin and we found some tropical fruit waiting for us.....really good!
The location is perfect if you want to enjoy some of the most impressive beaches on the island, in the neighborhood there is a sort of mall with shops and a supermarket (quite expansive) convenient in case of rain.
The house is full equipped with snorkeling gear, beach chairs/umbrella, kitchen is well equipped, the outdoor patio is really nice for a breakfast or a dinner, bed is comfortable.
We really enjoyed our stay
The Shores at Waikoloa Beach is located in an area of High end Resort Hotels and luxury condominiums. Just minutes to 'A' Bay beaches and a short walk to great dining options and shopping. Of course the beach and nearly year round sunshine is the big draw here, but the Big Island has so much to offer, there is something for everyone.
