Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-3)
About A. J.
I moved to the Big Island from California twenty years ago and I've enjoyed every day here. The many large or small private beaches, the mountains, the great weather, the ocean, racing in large or small Hawaiian canoes, snorkeling along the reefs, horseback riding, fishing along the coast or hiking in the mountains, performances at the Kahilu Theatre in Waimea, all the fine restaurants, the farmers' markets, there is always something new and different to do.
A. J. purchased this Condo in 1999
Why A. J. chose Kohala Coast
I chose the Waikoloa/Kohala area for my home and the condos because of the great weather and the Waikoloa/Kohala beaches which are unsurpassed on the Big Island and certainly some of the best anywhere. I bought condos close to my home so that I can ensure that the condos and everything in them are in top condition at all times. Plus, I'm close by if needed for any reason, even if just to answer questions about the area or give directions, etc.
What makes this Condo unique
I occasionally spend an evening or two at the condos because they're close to my home and to make sure that everything is as I would want it to be if I were a guest there.
Canceled bookings will not receive a refund
The apartment was perfect! I attended a wedding at the Marriott and this apartment was walking distance so I was able to easily attend all events.
AJ was a dream to work with, very accommodating and responsive. Following his instructions kept the apartment cool and comfortable even as the outside temperature increased.
The apartment felt significantly larger than it did in the pictures. The living room and bedroom were very spacious and the bed and couch comfortable. Everything was labeled with instructions so there was no playing with light switches to see what matched with what. AJ made the whole trip extremely easy. I could not have asked for a better trip.
Eine sehr schöne Wohnung in toller Umgebung
Unser Gaszgebber war sehr umsichtig und hilfsbereit hat uns schon kurz nach der Ankunft angerufen und auch seine Hilfe sollten wir welche benötigen
Es hat uns an nichts gefehlt ein wunderbarer Gastgeber
Aloha and Mahalo
Just what we were looking for (and as described)
Thanks A.J., we had a great stay. I appreciate you reaching out to me prior to our trip, the detailed directions and instructions, and the courteous check in during our stay. Your condo was clean, quiet and comfortable. It was our first trip to the Big Island, and we will be back. See you next time
Will Stay Here Again!
AJ’s place is great and he is a great host. We just stayed there for 6 nights and really enjoyed ourselves. High ceilings, very spacious, good sized kitchen and bedroom, and a large enough bathroom not to bump elbows with each other. AJ checked in with us within the first 24 hours of our stay and made sure that we had everything we needed. We’ve stayed at quite a few airbnb’s over the last few years and AJ has all his bases covered. There are directions and information about the house and the surrounding area all throughout his place. We found everything we needed in the kitchen easily and everywhere else. Really nice gated community - very clean inside the place and really nice landscaping outside. The pool was great and you’re like a 2 min drive to the beach (A Bay) which is really nice and you’ll find quite a few sleeping sea turtles on the beach just left of the lava lava club. Shopping centers, restaurants, and the Marriott and Hilton are right there too. It was perfect for us and great that AJ is such a good communicator to make sure you have everything you need. He offered to let us check out late as well, above and beyond.
This was a great rental. It was clean and had everything we needed for our week stay. It was in a great location and close to the beach, restaurants and stores. AJ gave great and detailed directions before we arrived. He also checked with us the next day to make sure everything was ok. This was a lovely property and would definitely recommend this place and would stay here again! Thanks AJ for making our Hawaii vacation even better.
The Shores, an oasis of beauty and tranquility on the Big Island of Hawaii
Recently we vacationed at The Shores, Waikoloa Beach Resort on the Big Island. Our condominium complex was well maintained and situated within 5 minutes of shopping. Our suite was completely equipped with all the necessities from beach equipment to a kitchen supplied with all the utensils one might require. The pool was a 2 minute stroll from the condo and it was as well furnished, clean and accessible. Our manager A.J. responded immediately to each inquiry while we vacationed. Prior to our visit he provided detailed instructions as to the location of our suite. This was opportune for we arrived late due to a storm in Vancouver which delayed our departure. On the Island we were greeted with a tropical storm, a backlog of customers at our car rental. All of the above resulted in an arrival to The Shores at 3:00 a.m. But we immediately found the suite due to A.J.'s attention to detailed driving instructions and entry to the suite. No problem unlocking and then, we collapsed in our master suite, for a good night's sleep. Our building was extremely quiet, seldom we heard neighbouring visitors or our neighbours in the Banyon Building. The suite at the Shores provided a perfect location from which to explore the Island. Suite 321 is a corner upper level which gave us breezes and sunshine all day long, and further removal from any passerbys (of which there were few and those courteous). I recommend A.J.'s suite to anyone who is wishing to escape to this moderate climate. It was our first visit to The Big Island and I would highly recommend this destination and this suite at The Shores. Our only regret is that we could not stay much longer but plan to return next year. Thank you A.J. for being there when we called, your concerns for our comfort and your well wishes. We look forward to returning. Aloha!
