About Lin Tottle

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

Why Lin Tottle chose Kohala Coast

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.

What makes this condo unique

The spirit of aloha.

Neat n Clean

The property was clean and well-maintained. The owner welcomed us with some tropical fruits. Also, the owner promptly replied to any questions we had. The beach is 5 mins drive from the rental property.

Happy time at Waikola Shores

  • 5 of 5

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.

Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Convenient, clean get-away condo with all the comforts of home! Perfect location!

  • 4 of 5

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!

Very nice if you have other places to go for beach access and/or views!

  • 4 of 5

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!

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.
