About Irena

We live in New Zealand but since we have retired we try to spend some of our winter months in Hawaii to escape our cool NZ winters.

We have been vacationing here prior to that at the vista's with our family for the last 20years. We fell in love with the Big Island when we first visited in 1989 and especially with the Waikoloa Beach resort area. It has so much to offer for vacations . Our children and grand children still love coming here whenever they can .

Irena purchased this condo in 2000

Why Irena chose Kohala Coast

We chose to buy at the Vista's because the area is so beautiful. The condo's are light and airy and very spacious with large lanais that are perfect to enjoy the tropical weather from. We love this complex, it feels welcoming and very safe. The grounds are always immaculate with beautiful flowering silk and plumeria trees. You are constantly walking and looking at a beautiful garden .

What makes this condo unique

The complex has a wonderful pool and hot tub area as well as gym and bbq area. It is great to get together there and enjoy the outside. Our condo is on a corner, which gives more privacy and being on the top floor, beautiful views. The lanai is very large, and a wonderful place for meals with the family.

Walking distance to all things in the village. Nice neighbors at the BBQ grill area eager to share their favorite highlights of the island. Great balcony with 2 chaise lounge and table with 6 chairs. Lillian-the host was awesome and responded quickly to questions. Highly recommend it.

The Perfect Hawaii Penthouse Stay

  • 5 of 5

Frankly our first reaction is to keep this unit a secret and not share any comments!! But to be fair to the Owners Irena and her local contact Lillian, we would be so remiss to not acknowledge the unit and both ladies. We have stayed at the Sheraton in Kona, Kolea, Marriott Waikoloa and Hilton Waikoloa and other locations during reqular trips to the Big Island, and we have to say, E301 and these two ladies are all amazing. The unit is just perfect for a family of four (even though this trip was just two of us), it has everything you need or want. Master was great with its own patio, sweet master bath, internet was sufficient, kitchen is FULLY stocked and even had MANY condiments so we only had to purchase main entree food items and they have a great selection of Beach towels and needs. The air flow through the unit is great if you want the windows open and the living room patio made for great relaxing evenings. Parking is a breeze and the elevators were sweet! The unit is cleaner than a HOTEL, everything is fresh and nearly new furniture through out. The views are what we wanted.. and the location to A Bay is perfect to walk to the BEST BEACH IN ALL OF HAWAII. Even though Irena is not in Hawaii, she was fantastic to communicate with and her local contact Lillian was always available for anything... even though we didnt really have a need to contact them for anything!! If your looking for a relaxing escape in Paradise with no worries, both of these ladies are fantastic to work with! We can hardly wait to return and return often!!

Great place

  • 5 of 5

Had a wonderful month at the Vista. Have been going there for 10 years....stayed in many different condos. E 301 is very comfortable....very clean and quiet. It is a well furnished condo. The views are amazing. So glad I found it. Will definitely go back next year.

Spacious and beautiful condo in great area

  • 5 of 5

Our family was thrilled with the Vista Waikaloa property E301. It was more beautiful than the pictures showed. We loved that it was on the 3rd floor with a great view. The rooms were all spacious and comfortable. The balcony was extra large which added to our enjoyment of the condo. We were there during a tropical storm but did not receive any noticeable amount of rain. We loved that there were restaurants and shopping within walking distance of the condo. We especially enjoyed Hapuna Beach State Park where we took advantage of the chairs, umbrella, and ice chest from the condo. It is just a short drive north of the condo. Our greeter Lillian also gave us useful tips on places to eat and where to buy groceries.

VERY BEST place we have ever stayed in all our years renting holiday homes!

  • 5 of 5

There just are not enough stars to rate this place. We have been renting holiday homes for years and I just cannot express how this property exceeded our expectations beyond anything we could have ever imagined.

Let me be more specific:

--*fully* stocked when we arrived, as in *EVERYTHING*-- toilet paper, kitchen roll, coffee, even a bottle of wine!!! We didn't have to run out and shop, as we normally do, after we arrived. Cannot express how much this saves-- both in vacation funds and time! We arrived from the airport and were immediately on holiday!

--everything you need for a beach holiday: beach chairs, snorkel gear, boogie board, yoga mat, even beach towels! We've been doing beach rentals for years and this place is beyond a cut above.

--fully stocked kitchen. We have young children and eat a lot of meals at home. Our first morning on the island and breakfast was seamless thanks to this kitchen.

---perfect layout for young families. The floorplan couldn't be better for having the young ones next door without compromising your adult down time! The wrap-around lanai is massive and you can easily sit outdoors and hear the little ones.

--the hosts. We've never rented a property that actually has a host! Lillian, our host, was amazing the whole way through before our arrival. I emailed more than once with questions as this was our first trip to HI. Her answers were both prompt and very thorough. Lillian was out of town when we arrived but her friend Carol met us at the condo to ensure we were all settled. We've never experienced such amazing hospitality. We love this place!!!

--I'm writing this review on our last night in the condo. We love this place so much that I want to spend some time of our last evening, on the lanai, expressing our thanks and letting anyone who is coming to the Big Island know about this incredible place.

A massive Mahalo to the owners and hosts!

Love, love love!

  • 5 of 5

This is an awesome condo. It is clean and modern and spacious. It was so much fun hanging out on the lanai, the view was beautiful. It is a short walk to the beach, the malls, restaurants and even a Macy's! The managers made us feel welcome. I highly recommend this condo to anyone who is visiting the waikoloa area.
