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.

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.

'A Bay' is a palm lined beach for swimming, snorkeling, and organized ocean activities and recreation rentals. Enjoy a sunset cruise, whale watch (December to April), snorkel or dive, play in the pristine ocean, or just relax and soak in the beautiful Hawaiian sun! Explore the peaceful ancient ponds that border the ocean. This historic location was once a spiritual retreat for Hawaiian royalty!

Waikoloa Beach Resort features two championship golf courses adjacent to the Vistas complex (designed by Trent Jones, Jr.) and at the Kings Course (designed by Tom Weiskopf and Jay Morrish).

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.

... Or just relax in your private retreat and do nothing at all.

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 Kohala Coast

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.

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).

Vista Waikoloa Unit 0f305

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at Vista Waikoloa Unit F305 from May 20 through May 27. We found this unit to be outstanding, well-appointed and well equipped with great views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa particularly in the mornings. The view of A'Bay is good any time of the day. The unit is very comfortable both inside and on the wrap-around lanai. Lillian Jefferson, the Walkers contact for the unit, is very helpful and has very good at providing information regarding the immediate Waikoloa area and other island attractions. Would recommend F305 to anyone interested and would definitely consider the unit for a future visit to the Big Island. The lap pool also is very good and a great place to relax and read, sleep or do whatever you like.

Convenient but noisy

  • 4 of 5

We stayed here for nine nights and loved the Big Island. My family of three used the boogie boards and beach chairs every day. The location was very convenient; we walked the path to A-Bay Beach several times. The view from the balcony was wonderful - we enjoyed seeing the Southern Cross and the volcanoes and the ocean. The best part was the saltwater pool and hot tubs, which we used every day. The worst part was the loud air conditioner; when we turned it off and used the fans and open windows, the traffic noise was too loud. Also, the kitchen cookware was aluminium / teflon and the lighting over the stove was poor; it was hard to cook fish after sunset. There was only one guidebook - a statewide travel book, which was disappointing. The beach towels were great and the beds were comfortable. There was no filtered water. The second bedroom could use a digital clock for telling time at night. So some issues but a lovely view and definitely nice to be on the top floor; never heard other guests.

Lovely as always-Amazing Unit-Wonderful Owners!

  • 5 of 5

This will be our 3rd time staying at this unit-and we will continue to try and stay here whenever we are on the Big Island-because we like it SO much!!!!! We love the views, convenience and privacy this unit offers. Bruce and Irena (owners) and Lillian are the nicest people to do business with-they make the whole rental process stress free !!! We really enjoy being able to walk right to A-Bay for Sunsets and late Lunch/Happy Hour at Lava Lava. We enjoyed the coffee and bottle of New Zealand wine as our welcome gift! Thank you again for making our stay so great :)

Lovely hosts, wonderful views and great condo.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this lovely, well located condo. The views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, as well as the palm trees and A-Bay, are stunning. Everything we needed was there....pool and hot tub area is great too. Beds are comfy, kitchen well stocked, and lots of little extras like snorkel gear, coolers, beach towels, etc etc. Thanks so much to Irena and Bruce, as well as the local contacts. Hope to visit again one day :-)

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
