Our Condominium

Our condo at Vista Waikoloa complex is surrounded by beautiful views of the ocean, lush gardens, palm trees, and fairways of the Beach Golf course in the famous Waikoloa Beach Resort. From the front door you can walk to the ocean, shops, restaurants, golf, the world-famous Hilton Waikoloa Hotel, and one of the Islands most beautiful and historical beaches, Anaeho'omalu Bay. This master planned luxury resort area is one of the premier vacation destinations in the world.

Our Condo F-305 sits on the top floor in the prime and private corner of the Vista Waikoloa complex, with expansive 220 degree views of mountains, golf course, palm trees, and ocean.

We want to make your stay as pleasant as possible, and our local contact will meet and greet you on your arrival.

The rooms are furnished with beautiful island themed furniture, and artwork.

The condominium has great natural lighting throughout the day, and you seldom have to use the AC. The breeze is very pleasant, and also has four ceiling fans for ventilation. Although there are few insects, all openings have screens.

If you do wish to close all the doors and windows, our apartment has central air conditioning in the living room, bedrooms, bathroom, and kitchen.

The large master bedroom has an ocean view, beautiful bed, drawers and TV. This room has great natural ventilation with a sliding door onto the lanai, opening windows and a ceiling fan.

We have many appliances including blender, coffee machine, bread maker, rice cooker, side by side refrigerator with freezer drawer and filtered water and ice maker, clothes washing machine, drier, and dishwasher.

Our large L shaped lanai is ideal for dining (6 chairs), relaxing on our 2 loungers, and at most times provides a choice of sun or sheltered shade, and has a wet bar . Sitting on the lanai, surrounded by fragrant plumeria trees and swaying palms, with your fresh Kona coffee and papaya, you know you are somewhere very special. The lanai offers vistas that are just spectacular during the day, and clear starry nights.

We include all linens, and also supply beach towels, some snorkeling gear, and packable beach chairs for our guests.

There is a reserved free parking space for your rental car, and a coded security gate for vehicle entrance into the property.

Waikoloa Beach Resort Location

Located just 20 minutes North of Kona International Airport, Vista Waikoloa resides in the unique and historic Waikoloa Beach Resort, on the sunny Kohala coast of the Big Island of Hawaii. It is located in the center of the resort providing wide views and easy access to many of the resort's finest amenities.

Within easy walking distance you'll find a white sand beach ('A' Bay), rocky shores, the Hilton Waikoloa Resort, the Waikoloa Marriott Hotel, tennis courts, the beach trail, the King's Shops, and the Queens Marketplace shops - which includes a gourmet grocery store with a bakery, fresh meat, fish, produce and wine.

Within a ten-minute drive, you can find additional premier golf courses as well as the island's best beaches and best snorkeling over coral in clear warm fish laden waters.

About Irena Walker

We are from New Zealand and have been coming to the Waikoloa Beach Resort since we fell in love with it 20 years ago.

Our children are now grown and they still love coming here and continuing the tradition of family holidays at our slice of Paradise.

We always look forward to our time in Hawaii every year with our family.

Irena Walker purchased this condo in 2005

Why Irena Walker chose Waikoloa Village

Our family purchased at the Vista’s because the complex and resort area offer everything we wanted as a family, for great fun, sun and good security. The Condo is on the top floor, spacious, light and airy, with corner privacy and extensive views.

What makes this condo unique

The two large lanai areas off the lounge provide wonderful outdoor areas for meals, coffee, lounging and taking in the views mountains, gardens and ocean. We can watch the moon rise over Mona Loa, and the last sun rays setting on the mountains in the distance. The wonderful starry night is a joy.

Everything about this property exceeded our expectations. The condo itself was comfortable, spacious, and had absolutely everything we needed. We hope to return to enjoy this beautiful part of the Big Island and stay here again!

Fantastic top floor condo: a real gem

  • 5 of 5

This rental unit is a real gem. It is located on the top floor and has commanding views. The unit's finishes and furnishings are higher-end than the typical beach condo rental unit. It also is very well equipped, with a fully stocked kitchen, beach towels, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, shampoo, shower soap, etc. The entire unit was very clean. Although Lillian was out of town during our stay, she left a lovely note with helpful tips about the area and the unit itself. In summary, I would definitely recommend this unit to others. It stands out from the typical VRBO rental market.

Great place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I visited the Big Island for our 10 year anniversary vacation, and we stayed at Vista Waikoloa F305.

Before we booked this property, Irene who is the owner of this condo replied kindly and quickly to all of my questions.

Lilian who helps geusts at the site, was very kind and helpful before and during our vacation. She provided recommendations for activities, beaches, and dining on the Island. She also arranged a late checkout for us because our flight left the Big Island late. I really appreciated this from both Irene and Lilian.

We loved Lava Lava Beach Club’s Happy hour. It’s waking distance from our condo. Exactly on the beach. We visited there 3 times!!

We loved A-Bay… the sunset was especially gorgeous! but we really loved the State Park at Hapuna Beach. We enjoyed body boarding there a lot!

This unit provided lots of stuff for the beach , such as beach chairs, umbrellas, body boards, snorkeling gear , a cooler box, beach towels…etc.!!

The condo was very comfortable. Much better than we expected. It felt like we stayed at home in paradise!! Especially the lanai was at the top of my list. We had papaya and coffee for breakfast every morning. The sunrise from Mauna Kea was breathtaking!

This complex was quiet, clean and in a very convenient location.

I definitely return to this place next time we have a chance to go to the beautiful Big Island again.

Beauty on top of the world! 🌴

  • 5 of 5

It is with pleasure that I write my review! This property is exactly as presented in the photos...The 220 degree views from the adjoining lanais were the highlight!

We literally "lived outside"whenever we were at the unit!

My husband's fondest memory is sitting on the lanai with his coffee watching the sunrise every morning..glorious!

The location is in the center of the Waikoloa resort...

Walking to "A beach", markets, restaurants, Hilton, Marriott, etc is a breeze!

As for the unit...very clean, fully stocked kitchen items, beach towels, snorkel equipment, beach chairs and cooler. The beds, bedding, and towels are lovely.

Two TVs, stereo, Apple box, games. We enjoyed easy communication with the owners and property manager. Lillian met us when we arrived and provided keys and helpful information.

We will recommend this wonderful property to friends and family, and hope to return! 😎?Mahalo

Great spot, will come back

  • 5 of 5

The owner and her on site rep were both very helpful and accommodating. They included a comprehensive list of restaurants, beaches, and activities near by. The condo is beautiful, much nicer than in the pictures. We weee pleasantly surprised. Beds were very comfortable. The grounds are beautiful and the pool is perfect (salt water pool rather than chlorine).

This is a wonderful location as it almost never rains! Located about 25 minutes drive north of the airport, the island breezes keep you very comfortable. You are in walking distance of both the King's and Queens Shops which offer restaurants and food court as well as a upscale ABC Grocery Store. The world class Hapuna Beach, 69 Beach, and Mauna Kea are all but 15 minutes drive.

Great things we have enjoyed:

• Relaxing under a tree on the beach at A bay, beach 69, and Hapuna beach

• Zip lines

• Whale watching (winter only)

• Sunset sail from A bay

• Swim with dolphins

• Dolphin Quest at the Hilton

• Ride the boats and train at the Hilton

• Walk the Hilton art trails

• Visiting the public observatory on Mona Kea

• Helicopter ride

• Snorkeling

• Scuba diving

• Manta Ray dives

• Swimming in the beautiful ocean
