Welcome to Hale o'Lani Aloha -- The House of Heavenly Aloha...
This beautiful two-bedroom, two-bathroom, two-story vacation condo is located on the Robert Trent Jones Jr. golf course in Waikoloa Village on the Big Island. Your lanai overlooks the pool, the ninth fairway, and has a partial ocean view. Waikoloa Villas is a private, quiet, individually-owned condominium complex. This is an upstairs unit.
Upstairs the loft-style master bedroom has a king-size bed and walk-in closet. The upstairs also has a bathroom with shower and a separate vanity area. There's also a small office area and plenty of closet space. There is a twin-bed and a Queen bed downstairs in the second bedroom. The downstairs bathroom has a combination shower/tub and separate vanity area with washer and dryer. In the living room, the sofa unfolds to a very comfortable queen-size bed.
The condo has tiled and carpeted flooring with comfortable furnishings. The 18-foot high wood ceilings make it very spacious inside. Ceiling fans in the living room and bedrooms keep you cool and comfortable. The kitchen is fully equipped and includes dishes, glasses, cookware, microwave, coffeemaker, and dishwasher. A grocery store is a quick two-minute drive away. If you travel with a laptop and can't live without e-mail, you can check it with our wireless high-speed internet access, or just use our computer and printer. The lanai has a nice patio set and a wet bar. It's a great place to begin your day with a cup of Kona coffee, or relax at the end of day. You can also use one of the two pool/cabana areas that are complete with heated pool, hot tub, gas barbeque grills, and shuffle board.
A-Bay, one of the best beaches on the island, is about a ten-minute drive away. The condo has beach towels, beach chairs, coolers and even sand toys to make your day at the beach complete. If you decide to play golf instead, renters can get discounted greens fees at the Village golf course.
The location of the condo makes it perfect for year-round enjoyment. It does not rain much on this part of the island and the temperature is normally 75 to 85 degrees year-round. You will enjoy a nice afternoon breeze most days. There are very few insects on this part of the island.
You'll have a convenient home-base if you want to explore the rest of the island. You can drive to the live volcano in about two hours.
Come experience what Hawaii has to offer and feel like you belong here... You can find many activities close by or just relax and enjoy the condo.

Check-in process was very easy. You receive a letter with your confirmation packet and you are given an access code to a lock-box (door key to condo and pool are in the lock-box)on the front door and you go in. Simple! Same at check-out; you put the key back in the lock-box and you leave. While you definitely will need a car, the property is well-located to everything you need, i.e., grocery store, gas station, restaurants, golf course and highways that will get you to the beaches or drives around the island. The condo has everything you need. It's well-decorated and has nice/comfortable furnishings. I wanted to take the king bed home with me; it was so plush. Dishes, pots/pans, silverware, utensils, blender (great for slushy drinks), a closet with books/games/cards, TV with player for movies that were provided, computer - you want for nothing; it's all there. It was so nice staying in this condo instead of a hotel. You don't have to rush each morning to got up, get dressed and hurry to a restaurnt for breakfast or get to dinner at night. We purchased groceries (took a trip to Kona and shopped at Wal-Mart) and we made most of our meals "at home". We did try a few restaurants for dinner (try Lava Lava Beach Club - awesome!) otherwise the convenience of eating at the condo suited us. There is no air conditioning, but you don't need it. We opened all of the windows and enjoyed the breeze day and night. We sat on the lanai (nice furniture) and enjoyed the birds, the golfers going by and the sunsets. There was also a wet bar in a closet on the lanai so you can make coffee out there and enjoy the morning. We got a kick out of the turkeys that came by to see us everyday. I could go on and on and I really wish i were there right now, but i think you get the picture. Everything was wonderful and the accommodations were perfect for us for our vacation. Thank you - we will be back!
We spent a week here and we wish we could have stayed a lifetime! This condo is centrally located on the Big Island in an amazing complex with gorgeous views.
The unit was extremely clean, the beds very comfortable, the neighbors very sweet. The lanai was our favorite spot in the unit as the weather was wonderful. The beautiful geckos come out to enjoy breakfast and coffee with you each morning, and also dine with you in the evening. Sometimes you will be blessed with the presence of the wild Nene that run the course and, if you’re really lucky, there might be some babies tagging along. Starter toiletries were provided and ample, and the fully stocked kitchen even included things like plastic baggies, foil and garbage bags. There are ample linens and you have access to beach chairs, ice chests and sand toys, as well as a variety of books and movies for your reading & viewing pleasure. You have everything you need to be comfortable here.
You’re not far from anything when you stay here. In fact, you’re only about 90 minutes max (depending on traffic) from just about anything you could want to see or do here. There’s a grocery store and gas station within walking distance. An hour North in one direction gets you to Pololu Valley which has the most amazing black sand beach, and in another direction gets you to Waipio Valley which has some awesome horseback riding. Cut West through the middle of the island for about an hour and you’ll hit the Hilo side where you can experience several amazing waterfalls such as Rainbow Falls and Boiling Pots, as well as the lush rainforests.
We plan on making this a yearly vacation and will stay here every time, but just until we save up enough to purchase our own unit. Cannot wait to get back there!
My family of 4 (wife + 2 kids ages 9/6), stayed at Waikoloa Villas F202, and had a fantastic time. The condo was centrally located for us as we enjoyed the sites of the island (Hilo, Kona, Volcano, and many beaches), all were within easy driving distance. The condo was very comfortable and was well stocked for a family of 4. The lani was very nice to enjoy our meals and coffee in the morning. Our kids enjoyed the pool when we were not at one of the beaches around the area. We would certainly reccomend this place to anyone.
I stayed here with my husband and two daughters (4 & 10). The condo is very clean and comfortable. It truely is turnkey with everything you need as stated in the description. We did not need to buy anything other than our food. There were toys and video's to keep my youngest amused. The beds were confortable. The pool and hot tub was right opposite the condo and there never seemed to be anyone using it, so we basically had it to ourselves each time we used it. It too was kept very clean. There is a grocery shop with everything you'll need just a 2 minute drive or about 10 min walk. You will definately need a car if staying here as its a good 10 minute drive to Waikoloa resort with shops and resturants etc. This condo has a real home away from home feel and at such a good rate, it makes it very good value.
We stayed for 2 weeks (Dec 2010 to mid January 2011) The condo is GREAT!!! This is an older development but for the most part it is well looked after. Some might think it is in need of some upgrades but it is fine unless you are expecting some uber riche digs. Everything works and it is clean. The pool and bar b q area are great for cooking supper and relaxing around after a day of adventure. A perfect way to end the day. The condo is fully equipped so you just need to stop and get your grub. The furnature is nice and the space decorated tastefully... And really.... You are in Hawaii so you will not be inside a whole bunch other than to sleep... This is a way more relaxing vacation than staying at a resort in my opinion... Everything is at your own pace. It is like a home away from home once you get moved in!!! I have been vacationing like this for a number of years. This area is one of my favorites. I hope to get an opportunity to stay in this unit again as it was pretty much perfect for my needs!!! The owner made every attempt to insure my vacation time here was excellent. There was a minor issue that came up that was not directly related to the unit itself. This was not a huge issue but she looked into it immediately and did what she could to address it to my satisfaction. That is excellent service from someone who obviously cares!!! I would rent from her again without hesitation!
Great place and great people to deal with... 5 stars in my opinion
This condo was a perfect fit for our family of 4 adults. We enjoyed our meals out on the lanai overlooking the pool area and the golf course. It was fun to watch the geckos and the birds in the mornings. The condo was well supplied with towels, mats & sand chairs for the beach and all the needed kitchen tools and appliances. Since the area was so quiet it made for a very relaxing vacation!
Sleeping in late; drinking Kona coffee on the lanai in the morning; sleeping some more; going out to eat; movie rentals within walking distance; about a 2-hour drive to live volcano; 10 minutes to one of the best beaches in Hawaii
