We greatly enjoyed our 10-day vacation in this exceptionally nice Vista Waikoloa condo. It features beautiful views, comfortable and attractive furnishings indoors and on the lanai, excellent beds, and the best-equipped kitchen you'll ever find in a holiday rental. Sylvia, the owner, makes the entire rental process easy and stress-free. You won't be disappointed.
We thoroughly enjoyed our 10 day stay, the location is great, walking to shops, restaurants and most importantly the beach! The condo was the best equipped VRBO I’ve ever seen with every kitchen accoutrement you could think of and very nice updates and appliances. There is also every beach toy or accessory one could need which came in handy. A question came up during our stay and Sylvia was so quick to respond also messaging us the first day to make sure we got in and everything was to our liking. The roomy patio had a great view of the mountains, golf and pretty sunsets, this was the most used space in the condo with well appointed outdoor furniture and seating. We did use the golf discount which was worth while. Would definitely stay here again!
This rental was such a pleasure to stay in! The owner has really gone over and above to offer an exceptional condo. I love the two en-suite master bedroom set up. The furnishings are comfortable and high end. Everything is new and beautiful. It is walking distance to the beach, shops, restaurants, and a movie theater. Great discount golf. We loved sleeping under the ceiling fans at night. It kept us cool and we really felt like we were in Hawaii. The three mountain view over the golf course from the lanai is truly spectacular. The kitchen was THE best equipped rental kitchen I have ever seen and it also had lots of things like soy sauce, specialty salts, spices, baking supplies, and much more. I very much appreciated the rice cooker too! All in all, a really wonderful rental, especially if you want discount golf at the Waikoloa course.
Love this place , had everything you can think of…
We really loved this condo! We have stayed in 2 other condos in Vista Waikaola, and this was the best by far. It was very well-appointed, very comfortable, and had SUCH a great kitchen. We had everything we needed, plus some. There were many great places to sit and relax, inside and out. The view of the mountains is incredible. I loved watching the sunrise from the the lanai every morning - just magical! We also loved communicating with the owner. We felt very welcomed. We will definitely be back.
Our condo was beautifully furnished and went above and beyond providing everything one could want or need. A 5 star experience and we will be back
I have stayed at many properties throughout the years and this one is the very best. Sylvia is a pleasure to work with. She has thought of EVERYTHING you could possibly need to make your stay enjoyable and hassle free. The unit is clean, great location, and quiet. Thank you Sylvia, we are sure to return.
The condo doesn’t feel like a rental. With the well appointed kitchen, comfortable rooms, updated bathrooms and many extras/amenities that give it a personal touch. The lanai - the sunrises were amazing! With the Kings’ Shops, Queens’ Marketplace, and A’bay short walk away. The complex was clean and quiet.
Mahalo, Sylvia, for making this feel like a home while visiting the beautiful Island of Hawaii!
We have stayed in many properties throughout the islands and without a doubt this is the very best one we have ever rented. Sylvia made everything about our stay so easy from check-in and throughout the entire stay. The condo is gorgeous - immaculate, beautifully decorated, and filled with every possible amenity. There were two avid cooks in our party who agree that the kitchen is spectacular! There was truly nothing we needed to provide except food and beverages. The view of the mountain from the lanai was breathtaking. Mahalo, Sylvia, for your hospitality and for making our family vacation truly memorable. We will definitely be back! Mahalo and aloha.
Our family had a great stay in this condo. Sylvia was great to work with and very responsive. Overall, a very clean and comfortable condo, including the beds. The wrap around lanai is wonderful with a golf course view. This condo is very close to stores.
This was the best stocked condo we have ever stayed in. There were extra appliances like a coffee grinder and air popper, fun dinnerware, beach towels, beach chairs, beach bags, fins and the beach wagon was great to use. Plus essentials like sanitizer.
We chose to drive to beaches a little further away.
The decor was Hawaii themed with lots to look at and enjoy.
We really appreciated the extra touches in this condo.
We did have small ants in the kitchen. We had to take care to seal everything up tightly.
Overall this was a great condo and we would stay here again
We loved our stay at Vista Waikoloa. Sylvia is quick to respond and so helpful. The walk to the beach is short and the condo has everything you could want and more. It was so nice to have beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, coolers, ice packs, etc all there and ready to go. The Lanai is huge and the kitchen is very well stocked. We were even able to host dinner one night for our family of 20 and everyone had a place to sit. We would love to stay again if we get a chance to visit the Big Island again.
This condo was one of the most beautiful parts of our trip we visited Hilo to tour the Hamakua Chocolate Farm what an awesome tour also visited A-Bay, Kikue and 49 Black Sands Beach. At the latter of the two the snorkeling was wonderful. Our best meals were at the condo with a beautiful views.
Kona brewery was fun to stop at and very reasonable to have lunch. We visited with our Wrangell, Alaska friends who now live on the island here what fun that was! We had star fruit fresh Ahi tuna steaks and the company was awesome!
We highly recommend this condo as it is located in a perfect place. We also host our own vacation rental and we have to say that there is everything you need right here in this condo to be comfortable and have an enjoyable relaxing vacation! Hence the title of the review!
We just came back from our vacation and the location of this condo as well as the condo itself were perfect for my family. It is so close to the beach and a short drive from other beaches along the north-west part of the island. So we would spend the first half of the day there and the second half at the pool or relaxing on the balcony, and in the evening go to the beach again to see those magnificent sunsets.
The condo has everything and more than a family would need. It is in a perfect condition, and has my dream kitchen :)
Sylvia was a perfect host, always responsive to our needs or to answer our questions. She truly wants her guests to have the best experience!
Definitely we will be back!
I wife and I and to how our children enjoyed this property for 12 nights on a graduation trip with our kids. The property was superb in every way everything you needed was already there including everything to go to the beach even a little wagon to pull your stuff in. Super clean beautiful property. And we will definitely be coming back.
The condo was great, very clean and updated, close to stores/food/shopping, and a great condo complex. We used the pool and workout room a lot, and sat on the Lanai hours a day. Great View! We plan to go back next summer and will try and rebook. Thanks, Blake
I have to agree with the other reviewers. This was one of the nicest units I have ever stayed in. 5 Stars all the way. One of the things I enjoyed most was just relaxing on the huge lanai after a long day at the beach. In addition, the unit is fully stocked with your basic necessities. I would definitely stay here again.
We visit Waikoloa Resort every spring (except 2020) and have never had a rental more clean, equipped, so neatly decorated, and comfortable for everyone...and that lanai was well worth waking up every morning for sunrise!!! Beds were great, all upgrades are high quality (pics are true), so many appliances and beach equipment. All our friends were jealous haha! We never needed to use AC since there's so many fans and windows/doors to open. Communicating with Sylvia was easy and she's on top of everything. We will be booking this unit again for sure!!
The condo is exactly as listed and shown in photos. The was simply amazing! Many great amenities for use making the morning and evening kitchen routines just like (or better) than home. The furniture is comfortable and bedding was dreamy. Great lanai views and soothing breezes while relaxing at end of a busy tourist day. We had 3 other couples who were in other condos here and our room was far superior to theirs in both comfort, decor, amenities, host communication and price. In fact, they all said they would contact our host for availability when they want to return for vacation in Kona.
Sylvia and Rod’s condo is lovely! All the little extras have been thought of. Condiments in the fridge, spices in the cupboard. All the dishes, glasses, wine glasses, pots and pans you need. Shampoo and conitioner and body wash in the showers. Comfortable and clean beds , linens and pillows. Coolers, beach chairs and umbrellas plus much more. The lanai was our favorite place in the afternoon lounging on the cushioned sofa and two rocker chairs.
We have stayed here multiple times so it feels like home away from home to us.
Rod and Sylvia are quick to respond to your questions and are such a nice friendly couple. Great stay for anyone.
I do not tend to write reviews, but this case is special. This condo is awesome. My family had one of our best vacations while staying there. The condo is elegantly decorated and the kitchen is equipped with anything we could possibly need. There is nice view from the lanai and it's very quiet.
The location is great, too: walking distance to the beach, the Kings Shops / Queens Marketplace, and the Hilton hotel (kids loved their train, boats, parrots, sharks and dolphins). The complex has a large swimming pool and good gas grills in the common area.
Finally, the owner is great: very responsive and accomodating, processed payments/refunds on schedule, left a nice fruit basket for us. This is going to be our preferred destination in Hawaii, and we'll be recommending this condo to our friends and colleagues.
Thanks for the great vacation, Sylvia!
This was our first time staying in the Waikoloa area of the big island and we had a great time, This condo is very nice. We had family staying in two other ones on the same property and this was by far the best one. The floor plan is nice and the owner's have taken such great effort in the decor, etc. The location of the building in the Vista's was also nice because we could easily get to the sidewalk, which takes you up to the shopping areas and beach. The owners were pleasant and easy to work with, everything went smoothly. We would definitely stay here again.
For the past two years we've had extended stays in this condo and another (#126738) in the same complex that is also owned by Sylvia. We have already booked for another extended stay in 2011 and it is so terrific that we consider it a "second home!" Sylvia does a wonderful job in decorating and stocking her units, and is quick to help if there are any problems once you are there, although we’ve had almost none. The brightly colored walls, the furniture, and all the paintings and artwork provide a warm, “island” atmosphere. The kitchen has plenty of bright Fiesta Ware table settings, pots and pans, knives, and all you need to serve both yourselves and guests – we were proud to invite others to come over for a meal…and to show off “our digs.” We especially appreciated the coffee grinder and the lighted magnifying make-up mirrors in both the master and guest bath rooms.
Speaking of guests, this is an excellent floor plan for guests. The guest room has plenty of space, storage, and an ensuite bathroom. We had other couples with us for almost 4 weeks and never felt crowded or uncomfortable. Our guests loved the condo as much as we did. We must also say more about the floor plan, because it is so much nicer than most that you will find in Hawaii. First, the lanai is huge and it wraps around two sides of the condo, with plenty of space to both eat and lounge outside. The kitchen is larger than most condos and can easily accommodate 2 or even 3 people working there. The living area is also large, square, and two whole sides are a series of sliding glass doors going out to the lanai, so the views are expansive and there is lots of light. And since the condo is on the second floor, we live with the sliders open almost 24/7. Also unusual, is that the construction of this complex is concrete, so you don’t hear your neighbors on either side or above or below you.
We are so pleased to have “discovered” Vista Waikoloa and Sylvia’s condos and recommend them whole heartedly. Vista Waikoloa is an immaculately maintained property – beautiful, mature trees and flowers, a great pool and spa area, a well-stocked workout room, and nice barbeques where the men seem to gather every night. The location is ideal – easy walking distance to both the Kings’ Shops and the Queens’ Marketplace, with the Hilton and Marriott right across the street and a very short walk to the beach at “A” Bay.
We wish we had space to say more, but we don't!
