Great spot, great host, very quiet and comfortable. Could not have been better!
The property was modern, very clean and had everything we needed for our stay, including beach gear. We would definitely stay again.
Outstanding in all respects.
Just back from an amazing week in Waikoloa! This condo is comfortable, clean, has everything you need and the bathrooms and kitchen are fantastic! Location is great- easy walking distance to A bay and shops, easy driving distance to other great beaches. Will look forward to another trip there- one week was too short!
We recently stayed here on a family vacation. For a family vacation of all adults you could not beat the location. Good amount of amenities and walkability! Very close to all of the great beaches.
Beautiful property and well maintained condo.
We recently stayed here from May 29th- June 9th and just loved the place. Plenty of space for sleeping up to 8 people with a loft for my kids. The loft hold 2 twin beds which fit my teenagers- 19 and 17. However, if you have anyone over 6 ft the twin beds are a little short. Everything is laid out well and communication with the homeowner was great. No problems arose and we had a great time. We would definitely stay here again.
We had a great stay. The location was perfect and we could walk to the stores and the 2 local large resorts. Plenty of space and tasteful decor. The master bed was very comfortable with clean, high quality bedding. We loved jt
Great place to stay during a visit to Waikoloa. Very well appointed condo with every kitchen gadget you could ever need for cooking. Would stay here again.
The three of us stayed in Ellen's home for a week and it was one of the top VRBO rentals we've stayed in! The home is in a safe, gated community close to the King's Shop and Queens' Marketplace.
Ellen provided detailed instructions for check in/out and was quick to respond. The home had almost everything you would need to stay comfortably with designated guest parking. The kitchen was well stocked with necessary appliances and the washer and dryer is always great to have. I did wish there was a hot water kettle for tea but we made a small pot work :) The king bed in the master bedroom was extremely comfortable as I prefer a firmer mattress.
It's normally quiet although we could hear the neighbors when they hung out on their lanai downstairs. There are a few beach chairs and snorkel gear available to use. The lanai was a great place to work (we worked remotely) and watch the sunset. The internet speed is not the fastest but it worked for the most part for us to be on VC calls throughout the week. The only downside during our stay was that we ran out of hot water one night when we were trying to shower back to back -- that was definitely a bummer!
Other than that, having the access to the gym and the pool/hot tub was one of the highlights for us during this stay (we wished it stayed open later!). There are wipes for all the equipment and the glass walls of the gym can slide open for plenty of air flow (almost feels like an outdoor gym!). The hot tub and pool were clean and a wonderful way to end our days looking up at the stars :)
We highly recommend Ellen's place if you're planning to stay on the Kona side of the island!
Instructions for entry were super clear, easy entry into the apartment with entrance close to the elevator (super helpful with all of our bags). Parking was convenient, safe and right near elevator. The house was super clean on arrival and was more beautiful than the pictures show. Beds were super comfortable, great couch and TV setup in the living room for the downtime we had in between activities. Plenty of space for everyone. We did a lot of cooking and the kitchen had everything we could have needed (tools, pans, dishware, oil, seasoning etc.) and the appliances were amazing. Eating meals out on the patio highly recommended! Bathrooms were wonderful - clean and with lots of towels. For all groceries / snacks, there was a grocery store right across the road from the gated entry way. Can't thank Ellen enough for letting us stay in her wonderful home!
Our family of 4 stayed at this condo for a whole week and thoroughly enjoyed it. The condo is very well-maintained--excellent kitchen with a good set of utensils, linens, and enough supplies to get us started. The condo also has excellent cross ventilation so we didn't have to use the air conditioner at all during our entire stay there. Having a loft was a nice extra as it provided even more room for our daughters. The beach supplies also came in handy--chairs, umbrella, mats, boogie boards! Couldn't ask for more location-wise. Both the King's Shops and the Queen's Marketplace were within easy walking distance. A-bay was an easy 5-minute drive away once we figure out where to park. We also discovered the King's Trail which was right next to the complex, a pleasant find! We definitely highly recommend this condo.
We love Waikoloa Beach Resort, but this was the first time we stayed in a 2/2+loft and we are sold on the spacious quiet and no need for A/C tho it's theree for backup in the rare case of vog. Windows adjusted from virtual wind tunnel to light breeze. The spiral stair would be for the more nimble than our senior group, but led to a cozy reading nook with one twin entirely private and window and fan we used to ventilate summer heat.
Photos do not do justice, especially for the beds. Our master bed had a Martha Stewart spread and 100% Supima cotton sheets easy on the sunburn. And the cleaning service is Eco-green using Dr. Bronner's baby soap on the linen, perfect for my allergies. Ditto the filtered water tap saving us buying bottled. The ice maker did not produce after it's first crop, but the housekeeper-manager
explained the refer had just been repaired and it does take a while to get parts in the middle of the Pacific. She showed up the morning after we called and programmed the tv on for us.
Quite well-supplied. Beach chair, umbrellas, noodle, snorkel, skimmer board etc. Kitchen Cuisinart and Farberware pans, but I still bring my sharpened cleaver and spice rack. Single-serving laundry detergent of the brand I requested and same amount of shampoo to get one started.
We aresorry to leave after six nights and coming back soon, next time perhaps with more than just three people. With about 20 vacation rental stays on the big island, a half dozen of them in WB Resort, I'd rate this one at the top for quality and price.
We celebrated a 40th birthday with a group of 6 at this wonderful condo that had everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The many beaches in the area are so clean & beautiful. We used the pool & jacuzzi in the complex everyday. The luau at the Marriott is within walking distance. There is shopping & restaurants also within walking distance. We made several meals in the condo.
We were two couples who stayed for two weeks. Our visit was superb in every way. Booking was efficient.
The condo overlooks the golf course and is very quiet. It was spacious for two couples. Both decor and furniture was very tasteful.
Master bed was very comfortable with good linen and the kitchen well stocked. Lots of towels (including beach towels) and body surf boards.
King's and Queen's Reach shopping with ten minutes walk.
It was also very clean.
We would thoroughly recommend.
We stayed in this beautiful condo in August this year and had a wonderful time. It is centrally located and close to great restaurants, shops and overlooks a beautiful golf course. The condo is very comfortable, beautiful furniture and the kitchen has all you need to prepare home made meals. We grilled several fresh fish dinners at the outside grills. The complex is well maintained, plenty of parking, has lush landscape with a lovely, relaxing pool and jacuzzi.
I would highly recommend this condo on the Big Island and plan to return for future vacations.
We just stayed at the most beautiful condo in the most ideal beach location in Hawaii. This condo complex is impeccable, felt safe with doors and windows open all day and night, breezes were fantastic right off the bay. I had the opportunity to stay at this beautiful condo twice this year; once in March and now in November. It is absolutely beautiful and my favorite place in Hawaii. I was one of the first guests to stay after the owners redecorated: brand new plush carpeting in the bedrooms beautiful wood floors in the loft, comfy new mattresses, new gorgeous furniture. I took over the adorable loft that has beautiful west views including a peek a boo view of A bay. Very well stocked kitchen, beach towels, etc.. Owners are very nice and easy to work with, and got a great deal. View is to the west, see A Bay area and golf course-beautiful teak furniture on lanai. No road noise, Highly recommend this unit.
