Welcome to my beautiful condo on the Big Island located in the luxurious resort of Waikoloa Beach. The kitchen and both bathrooms have been remodeled with granite floors and countertops and African Mahogany cabinets. The kitchen is fully equipped for all your cooking needs with stainless steel appliances, dishes, small appliances, a coffee pot, toaster, blender, rice cooker, and linens. If you feel like barbecuing, there is a pavilion with 4 modern gas grills, a kitchenette and places to sit and enjoy your meal. There is seating for six in the dining area in the condo as well as on the lanai.
There is a washer and dryer for you to use, so you can pack lightly!
The condo is perfect for couples or families. The master bedroom has a King-size bed and the second bedroom has two twin extra-long beds which we can easily convert to a King bed. There is also a twin inflatable mattress. The two bathrooms have walk-in showers, and the master bathroom is very spacious.
The living room has plenty of room to spread out. There is a 50" smart TV so if you have a Netflix (or any other) account, it's very simple to log in to your account on the TV and watch your favorite series. There is also free WiFi so you can still feel connected. The condo has central air conditioning, but that's not always needed, you can simply open up the living room and bedroom sliding doors to the Island breezes! Enjoy your morning coffee and breakfast, or cocktails in the evening, on the wrap-around lanai accessible from the living room and master bedroom overlooking the peaceful gardens and looking out at the mountains of the old volcanoes.
The kitchen is fully equipped and has everything you need to prepare meals. If you don't feel like cooking, there are many restaurants within a 5-10 minute walk ranging from Tropic Ale House right next door (a sports bar) to Roys in the Kings Shops which offers a fine dining experience, and everything in between. The Lava Lava Beach Club is just next to A Bay, go over for their happy hour and sit on the beach and watch the sun go down.
You can relax on A Bay beach or just walk to the pool and swim a few laps in the heated saline pool or soak in one of the two hot tubs. You can also work out in the Fitness Room which is delightfully air conditioned.
One of my favorite things to do is to walk along the Shoreline Trail, especially early in the morning to catch a glimpse of the sea turtles as they rest on the rocks or float around in the shallows, and again in the evening to watch the sunset. You can walk to the beautiful, tranquil Anaeho'omalu Bay Beach (A Bay) which is great for snorkeling, taking a boat out to go deep sea fishing, whale watching, rent a stand-up paddle board or kayak. Or you can just lie under the palm trees and relax.
I have beach chairs, umbrellas, mats, coolers, and boogie boards available for your beach and water fun. While walking along the coast, keep an eye out for sea turtles, dolphins, whales, and surfers! World-famous Hapuna Beach is a 10 minute drive from the condo and a golf course backs up to the condo. If you're up for a helicopter ride around the Island, Blue Hawaiian Helicopters is a 10 minute drive away and is a fantastic experience!
The King's Shops and Queen's Marketplace are just a 10 minute walk away with great shops, restaurants, and a Farmer's Market twice a week. The Marriott and Hilton are a short walk away if you want to enjoy their Luau or swim with the dolphins at the Hilton.
Pack your toothbrush and your flip-flops and swim suit and you're ready to vacation and relax!
