Laura Lee Verlinde purchased this condo in 2013

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.

Excellent vacation condo

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at Hali'i Kai 16C was wonderful. The condo is extremely well equipped, clean and well maintained with everything we could have needed. There is a beautiful ocean view from the patio with the oceanfront pool and beach club a short stroll away. The owners were very responsive making the booking process simple and the onsite staff were excellent. It was very easy to travel and explore the island from this location.

Thank you for sharing this incredible vacation spot with us.

Amazing ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

Our stay at this property in Hali I Kai was wonderful. We have been staying at Hali I Kai for several years and have always enjoyed our stay. This unit was very clean, had so many extras and lots of accessories for kids. We have an 11 month old and did not have to bring anything as this unit was equipped with a pack and play, bumbo seat for feeding and plenty of beach accessories! I loved that the lanai had super comfortable furniture and amazing views of the ocean, it made our morning coffee that much more enjoyable. I would absolutely rent this unit again and would highly recommend it to anyone else!

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

What a perfect spot! This condo is clean, updated and luxurious with everything you need. It is just a few steps from the pool, gym and restaurant in the complex, its a nice stroll to the Hilton and a few minutes drive from Queen/King shops and beaches. The house is stocked with beach toys, kid's stuff, towels, woven mats, etc. The lanai is wonderful and perfect for facing the sunset and opens to a large grass area. We had a small social gathering and it was absolutely perfect. We will definitely consider booking again!

Great location, responsive owners/property mgmt.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for our family vacation. It was a very hot summer and having the A/C was a nice feature. One of the days it wasn't blowing cool air so I mentioned it to the property manager and they were on it right away! The unit is very well maintained and we appreciated having the beach equipment without having to buy all the gear. We loved that the unit was within close walking distance to the pool. Being on the ground floor was nice so that the boys could just run out and play on the grass and they could see them play outside. At night we were able to lay out on the grass and see shooting stars and view the perseid meteor shower!

Perfect basecamp, lacking nothing!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 stayed for our Christmas vacation this year, and had such a wonderful time. The condo was extremely comfortable, and was stocked with everything we needed and more. The furnishings were all top quality, including cookware, serve ware, appliances, the sharpest knives, etc. It was great to have umbrellas, chairs, snorkel gear and boogies boards available instead of having to rent/buy. The location is great--close enough to good beaches, also the beautiful north side of the Island and Mauna Kea. The pool area is just across the street as is the walking path for your morning coastline stroll. The unit is on the ground floor and we had no issues at all with noise from the tenants above. I have been using VRBO for over 15 years and have rented scores of properties through this site, but must say that Laura Lee is the most attentive and responsive owner I have met, as was "Max" the property manager. We definitely would stay again!!

Beautiful resort, great owners, fantastic location

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location for our family holiday. We were looking for a 2 bedroom apartment as opposed to a hotel room where accommodating our teenage boys is a challenge without having to pay for 2 rooms. This resort suited us perfectly! The apartment is extremely well appointed and the thoughtful owners have thought of everything - boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach toys, beach chairs, esky cooler, guide books, games, books, DVDs etc all available for tenants to use. Owners communicated with us very well and even offered suggestions of things to do. The resort is stunning and well maintained. The beach club at the pool offers well priced lunch and dinner options and cocktails. Sunset at the bar is a must. The resort suits young families, teenage families and older retirees. Most days we stopped into Queens Marketplace and got lunch and coffee at the excellent (but expensive) market - kids loved it. Great family holiday!
