Why Laura Lee Verlinde chose Kohala Coast

Waikoloa Beach Resort is a pristine 5 star resort. We have cruised all the islands as a family and returned to the Big Island to buy our home as this island seems to have it all. Hali'i Kai is a little peace of heaven on Earth and the perfect getaway for our family.

What makes this condo unique

Upgraded kitchen, high end furnishings and close proximity to the Ocean Club which houses the pool, restaurant, bar and workout facility are just a few things that make this unit the perfect location. Views of the ocean allow whale watching without leaving the comfort of your home. Tucked further in from the property entrance allows for a more peaceful and relaxing stay. Personal little touches await each guest upon arrival.

Perfection in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five (2 parents, 3 adult children) loved our stay at this beautiful condo! It was meticulous and well appointed. The view from the lanai let us know that we were in paradise and provided us the opportunity to enjoy time together each morning and evening. The location near the pool was very welcomed. During our stay the pool was quiet and oh so peaceful. We loved the restaurant and the exercise facilities that overlooked the Pacific. Overall, a lovely stay! We will be back!

Lived up to its Promise!

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay at the Hali'i Kai condo! The location is great with a wonderful view, safe gated environment, and close to walking trails, shops and restaurants. The pool and view are spectacular. The condo is stocked with quality home and entertainment items including two great bikes and plenty of beach and pool accessories. The lanai is a perfect place to hang out morning and night. The owner's were friendly, responsive and accommodating. Thank you for a wonderful vacation!

This condo is everything you could want or need while staying in Hawaii. It is very spacious, beautifully decorated, has a fully equipped kitchen and lots of beach toys, snorkeling gear and pool toys. The condo is perfectly located on the property allowing great views of the sunset from the lenai or the pool area that is a few steps away. The condo complex is also located a few minutes from great shopping and some of the best beaches on the Big Island.

While in the area don't miss the opportunity to do a night snorkel with the manta rays- an unbelievable experience!! We used Neptune Charlie's and we very happy the them.

The perfect Hawaiian vacation

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could want or need is available in this unit and complex. We travelled with our 11 month old baby and in laws, and had a wonderful vacation. The owners have thought of every detail from cooking supplies to entertainment. This ground floor unit has a lovely west facing lanai leading to a large lawn, which was ideal for playing with our daughter, heading over to the pool and restaurant, and watching the sunsets. The pool was delightful. We met many friendly people and families there. We loved the live music and ate several really good meals in the restaurant. We're already planning our return trip! Mahalo Laura Lee!

First time on the Big Island....lovely condo, with close access to a beautiful pool and hot tub and fitness area. No beach access, so had to drive to beaches - which is common on the Big Island. Helpful managers on site. Owners very friendly via VRBO email.

What more can we say ?

  • 5 of 5

Reading through all of the other reviews, I can add nothing else. This unit is a spoiler , Nothing else will compare to it if we looked for something else. Perfect in all respects. We arrived late at night and had troubles finding the unit. I wish I had printed off a map of the complex before leaving . Anyway , found it , and woke up to a beautiful view. Yes, this unit has everything and is equipped with all that I would have in my own vacation property. We are still here, but I wanted to get the review in before I forgot anything. We have scoped out several beaches, and have toured around the island. We have been to Maui several times , and two years ago , we were in Kauai . Within two days, I was certain I wanted to come back to this island, it has quickly become my favourite. I am a rock person, so of course, love the lava formations ! Fascinating. If you are so inclined, save up your pennies and take the helicopter ride . Love love loved it ! We are not big restaurant people, and have learned how to use the Cusinart Griddler . Excellent ! Take it outside and use on the countertop out there . Everything a BBQ can do for you and more . Easy to clean. At some point , I might consider buying one myself . Thanks Laura Lee and Ray, we WILL be back !

Mahalo, Laura Lee and Ray PS - great to know the Griddler is working out for you.
