Charming and well appointed condo. Easy access to shops and restaurants. Swimming pool was lovely. Bill is very responsive and we would recommend this home
This property really made our vacation special. We had other families here with us in HI that rented rooms at local hotels for much more and nothing compares to the space and amenities we had here. Bill is very easy to work with and the VRBO team makes things so easy we will definitely be coming back!

The property on which the condo is located is exceptional: the trees and the flowers are magnificent! On the balcony, I enjoyed looking at the view of the volcanoes in the distance! Communication with Bill is excellent. The condo is very large for our family of 6. Exceptional cleanliness and lots of extras! Close to everything on Big Island. Much appreciated being near Anaeomalu beach (10 minutes on foot). I highly recommend it!
Friendly, easy to communicate with hosts, WAY more amenities than expected. Kitchen as fully stocked with small appliances as home kitchen. Nicely furnished, but still comfortable decor. Perfect location. Gorgeous view from lanai. Enough space in this condo for a family vacation. Well maintained. This condo provided us with a comfortable, enjoyable family vacation.
The condo was beautifully furnished, nice kitchen pots & pans, beds were very comfortable. Owner was always responsive to questions, was very helpful and friendly. I would rent it again.
This Villa is awesome. Great location! We were visiting family in Kona, Waimea, North Kohala, and Hilo. This is a great middle point for us. The villa was beautifully decorated and there were alot of extras! Would like to rent again when our timeshare is unavailable.
We had a great week on this D34 Fairway Villas Condo. The condo is in excellent condition in a great area of Waikoloa Beach. Everything was perfect inside and outside of this condo. It is within walking distance of the Kings and Queens shopping centers and the A Beach. Great accommodations, and restaurants with great food in the nearby shopping centers and the overall area.
This is one of the few times where the property description matched the physical property.
Additionally Bill was quick to respond, offer advice and helped with all questions. Top notch property owner.
We had such a wonderful stay. The property is clean, very cozy and checked all of our boxes. The kitchen is spacious with lots of cooking utensils, the rooms were all large and very comfortably furnished. There is air conditioning, but the cross breeze is fantastic. This is a place that you are comfortable leaving the front door open into the evening. It is easy walking to shops, groceries, sweets and the beach. The neighbors were all friendly, and the grounds are nicely kept. We'd definitely stay here again.
We had a great time, and everything was as advertised!!!
This property came exactly as advertised and provided us with a great stay in the Waikoloa neigbhourhood. The location provides convenience access to groceries/restaurants/shops and is a 10 to 15 minute walk or very short few minute drive to the beach. The property was well equipped for everything we needed. Thank you for a great stay.
This is the best vrbo property we have experienced. Clean, comfortable, well stocked, quiet, great location and Bill and Diane were responsive, generous hosts. When we needed to change travel plans due to weather, they were able to accommodate an extra night. Thank you again for a wonderful experience!
We enjoyed our stay in this well-equipped unit overlooking the 1st green of the Waikaloa Lakes Course - a great location for our golf vacay. We're looking forward to coming back!
Would recommend this property to all. Beautiful place to vacation and a very nice condo. Owner of property were nice and helpful.
Rental property was fabulous!
We spent a month at this property in September/October 2022. I would give it six stars if I could! Items of note include very comfortable and supportive beds, a very quiet and private area without loud noise or neighbours and lots of outdoor items like beach chairs, umbrella, snorkel gear, boogie boards, etc. The lanai overlooks the golf course so is very quiet at night and free of traffic and bright lights. Wonderful view of the night sky! A great sunrise view over Mauna Kea. The gated nature of the property gave us a sense of security. The kitchen was extremely well stocked. We made several friends among the residents of the complex and enjoyed meeting other guests. Bill was very supportive and communicative and was invaluable in helping us out. Thank you Bill and Diane for your kindness. We hope to return some day!!
This condo did not disappoint. It was very clean and comfortable. Everything worked as it should and didn't have any negatives. It's extremely close to both Queens Marketplace and King's Shopping. No problem parking.
We had a very nice stay. The condo was great and we had no complaints.
It was everything we hoped for. The host was so gracious in allowing us to refine our guest list at the *very* last minute, gave very clear information on how best to enjoy our stay in the area, and had even provided beach towels for a quick jaunt to the beach. Easy access to nearby stores, a spacious cooking space, and beautiful work that they did on the home. It was a great home away from home, and we would definitely seek this place out again should there be a return trip to the Big Island. Thank you!
The property was fantastic! It was clean, well stocked with kitchen and bathroom essentials, and had a nice supply of beach essentials as well. There was plenty of room for our family of 4 plus grandparents. The hosts were super responsive to any questions, very timely with providing us information, and we loved all of the tips provided about local amenities. We highly recommend the property!
From the communication with the host to the cleanliness and location of this condo, everything was perfect. Home is just as described. Comfy beds, well-stocked kitchen, great tips from Bill about beaches and shops--we will be back!
Bill & Diane are wonderful hosts. The unit is clean, comfortable, well stocked and in a beautiful location. Our family of five had a great time and we’d stay here again!
My family and I had a lovely stay. The condo and grounds were lovely, though we did have to be cautious about noise (tile floors on the top floor are nice for us, but we had to be sure to be careful not to bug the neighbors below). The pool was very nice and community grills plus plenty of essentials in the cooking cabinet led to some beautiful dinners. The shops nearby with ice cream, shave ice, and general store items were great. We even got to mini golf while we were there. Beaches within 20min were the highlight of our trip with great snorkeling.
Had a great trip with my parents and siblings. The condo had everything we needed.
We really enjoyed our stay in this quiet community. We loved the location, which was a long walk or short drive to the Hilton or Lava Lava as well as Kings and Queens shops.
The kitchen had all the amenities one one would need, including spices and cooking oil, so we just needed to get our favorite groceries to cook up. Hint on groceries: It could be worth it to drive about 15 minutes to the KTA in Waikoloa Village, if you are buying groceries for more than a few meals. The KTA has more selection and lower prices than the few “grocery stores” in Waikoloa Beach.
The layout of the condo was good with quiet bedrooms and plenty of room and hangers in the master closet.
The secondary closet was full of beach amenities. A few chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards, snorkel gear, cooler backpack and noodles for the pool.
The view from the lanai was a highlight for me. Giving you the ability to sip coffee (a couple of packets provided to get you started) with a view of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualālai.
The only small issue, and it’s the most minor thing, was the air conditioner and thermostat control. The host set a minimum temperature of 74°, which is usually comfortable, especially with numerous ceiling fans and movable fans. However, my kids complained of being too hot when trying to sleep in the upstairs loft. If the loft was a few degrees warmer than the downstairs, I can definitely see how this could be uncomfortable for people who like it cool when they sleep.
Given only that minor issue and the rest of our experience with this condo, we would definitely stay here again on a future BI vacation.
Clean, well furnished, and close to amenities, i.e. shopping, golf, beaches.
We really enjoyed the place. It was located in a condo complex walking distance to the market, restaurants and other stores and to the beach. There is a small pool and spa in the complex.
The condo had everything we needed, including boogie boards and beach umbrellas. It is on the third floor of the building. There is an elevator.
Unit was spotless. Unit provided beach chairs, beach umbrellas, plenty of beach towels, as well as snorkeling gear. Kitchen was fully stocked, even provided spices. Comfortable furniture. Awesome BBQ grilling area and pool. Beautiful scenery and loved the shops within walking distance. I definitely would love to stay here again!!
This rental was perfect for our family of 5 and was within a short walking distance to the King and Queens shopping area. We loved the view of the golf course and volcanos. The place was well stocked with everything we needed. We loved all of the beach supplies and towels. The owners were very kind and responsive with our questions. We definitely will be back again! Thank you for sharing your beautiful place.
Loved the location of this home in Waikoloa. Close to the dining and shops. We loved dining at Kuleana Rum Shack. Close to A-Bay and beaches along the west side of the island.
The home was well furnished and supplied. Amenities were in good working order with ample cleaning supplies to keep the home clean during our stay. I appreciated that the kitchen had some basic cooking supplies including cooking oil and spices. Utensils/Cookware were in good condition -- future guests, be sure to take care of them while you're there to preserve them for future guests! We would stay again!
Loved the early mornings on the patio with mug of Kona coffee watching the hills come alive with the every changing sunlight. Bill and Diane are great hosts and the place is well -stocked for whatever you'd like to cook up!

Perfect condo in big Island Hawaii. I cannot say enough of how perfect this condo was for our family for a six day five night stay in Waikoloa Village. Wonderful layout, comfortable beds and everything and anything you would need in a kitchen. Even though we did very little cooking! Very clean, plenty of beach towels ,bath towels, beach chairs, noodles etc. etc. We do hope to stay in the condo again as we have family who live on the island. Thank you thank you!
Over all we rating 5 stars. We didn't need the property manager, but we are assuming they are available when needed.
Our stay was great! Nicely decorated unit on the top floor. The hosts were very friendly and responsive. We would definitely rent this unit again!

Very nice accomodation! We hope that we can come back someday!!
This condo was perfect for our family vacation, easy to access close to the beach and very clean. Owners were easy to work with and very accommodating. Would definitely stay there again if we ever get back to the big island!
My wife and I love this property, with it being the second time we've stayed there. Nice short walk to the King's Plaza for shopping and golf real close. The gym and pool at the property is nice as well. We love the location and plan to vaca here again soon.
We spent 8 nights at Bill and Diana's lovely place. Except for the problem with the first, the rest of our stay was wonderful. The condo is roomy,
well appointed and fully stocked with all the essentials. I would come back to stay here and highly recommend it to my friends and family.
With that being said, I very much wish our arrival/check in night would have been a better experience 😔. After over 10hrs hours travelling from the main land, we arrived to the condo at midnight (3am our time) only to find the condo hasn't been cleaned since the previous guests check out earlier that day. All beds were unmade (dirty/smelly sheets), kitchen uncleaned, lots of leftovers food in the fridge, bath tub was filled with dirty towels (per check out instruction). We travel frequent and have stayed in all kinds of accommodations from hotel to timeshare and VRBO, we have never experienced anything like this, leave alone during the pandemic when sanitizing and cleanliness is the main safety focus.
Desperate and tired, I called the island contact who told us it wasn't his problem because he didn't have a check in for the day on his calendar 😔. Knowing it's 3am local time for Bill, but I didn't have any other choice, I rang him twice and finally able to talk to him. Bill wasn't able to offer a solution that night, which is understandable but I got off the phone, still upset and lost, not knowing what to do or where to sleep for the night. It was 1am before we know it, we were all exhausted, and not able to wash up due to the dirty bathroom, I stripped all the bed and we tried to sleep without any pillow case, sheets and blankets. Although I was exhausted from all the traveling I wasn't able to sleep at all for the obvious reasons: disgusted from sleeping without bed sheet,I was upset, disappointed and worried about Covid (my mom is 76!😔). Our first morning schedule was also messed up since we couldn't get ready until the bathrooms get clean. When the cleaner came, I had to send my mom and kids to the pool. My mom changed and put her laundry in a plastic bag, later on we found out the cleaner accidently threw it out (not his fault but it wouldn't happened if the condo was cleaned prior to our arrival and that our firstday there wasn't being disturbed by an emergency cleaning).
The cleaner Sean was professional, nice and sweet. At first he wouldn't accept our tip saying it's their fault but I insisted that it was his lunch on us and he accepted.
Would definitely recommend. The place worked great for our family. We loved the location as well as the fact the home was well stocked with what we needed in the kitchen as well as plenty of pool towels, boogie boards and beach towels. I would definitely recommend to a friend.
The two story condo is an exceptional place to stay for the family. Beach, shops, restaurants and golf all within walking distance. This home is set up with everything you will need for your stay for you and your family. Just loved this place and our stay here and will be coming back again. Just hope it will be available!
This is a wonderful property close to everything. We loved relaxing on the lanai watching the golfers. The beds were very comfortable. My kids loved the loft. The only complaints- the dishwasher didn’t wash very well and the early morning mowing at the golf club. Bill was very receptive to our questions. Would definitely stay here again!
We had an amazing time on the property. I grew up in Hawaii and this rental is truly in a wonderful location close to everything you would need- groceries, gas, dining, beach, pool, gym, it has it all! Very family friendly and Bill was very attentive to any questions we had. Can’t wait to book our next stay. Thank you!
This condo was very spacious and easily fit our family of 5. Very clean everything seemed well maintained.
Easy check in process, once inside plenty of kitchen space, room for all 6 of us, large beds, clean linens, several useful appliances like washer/dryer, blender, and a crockpot, tall ceiling make it appear even more spacious, many beach amenities like chairs, coolers, and boogie boards, new shower in master, plenty of room for hanging and folded clothes in the bedrooms, seating for up to four on the Lanai overlooking the first hole of the golf course, and close to the shared infinity pool.
We found Bill’s place to be very comfortable for a family of five. It was nice to have the added loft since I couldn’t find a 3 bedroom and didn’t want someone sleeping on a sofa bed in living room. The stairs up there are a little steep for someone older but fine for my teen. The condo was quiet, clean, beds comfortable, well stocked with plenty of beach towels, a couple boogie boards, beach chairs, cooler, kitchen had plenty of cookware and even spices. No problems with parking. Liked the location near some restaurants (make reservations well ahead), and shopping at Kings/Queens shops. We did quite a bit of driving into Kona. I recommend getting groceries at Costco/ Safeway before but there are smaller stores near condo within walking distance which was nice. Pool was very close to condo. Great beaches nearby for snorkeling/beaching. Snorkel Bob’s nearby rents gear and provides a map of good snorkeling locations.
Our host, Bill was overall very helpful with suggestions and quick to responded to last minute questions without a problem, Mahalo
We arrived on the big island well after dark due to a delayed flight so we couldn't see any of the surrounding scenery as we drove the approx 20 minutes from KOA airport to the condo. We all collapsed into bed after traveling for nearly 24 hours and 6 time zones. The next morning when we awoke and saw the view out the back lanai, my wife literally cried at the beauty.
The view of the mountains, er VOLCANOES, and lava fields was simply amazing. We discovered that the lava fields on the far side of the fairlway right behind the condo contains part of the King's Trail with ancient petroglyphs--right in our backyard. We had a great time exploring the path and checking these out.
We also really enjoyed being so close to the King's and Queen's shops and the beaches. Our adult aged kids (18, 22, & 24) enjoyed the freedom of being able to walk to beach and shops whenever they wanted, too.
I will say that prices on groceries at the stores in these shops are super expensive. We found that going just 15 minutes away to the KTA Super Store in Waikoloa Villiage or even to Target back in Kona was much more economical. However, we really enjoyed shopping for non-essentials there. We especially enjoyed the Lava Light photography shop. Great pictures to remind you of your trip and the owner/photographer is a wealth of information of the island and what to do/where to go. We also really enjoyed talking to the owner of Maui Diver Jewelery. She really taught us a lot about the history of their jewelry and what makes it unique to the island.
The condo itself was fully stocked. Often rentals are skimpy on dishes, utensils, pots,, pans, etc. But not this one. There were tons of of everything. It's super nice to feel so at home when on vacation.
We wished we had explored the closet in the front bedroom sooner. There are lots of beach goodies in there. We found the beach chairs, but the second week we were there we discovered there are also some snorkel gear.
That said, we ended up renting snorkel gear from Hulakai in the King's shops. They are great to work with. Snorkel set is only $8 per day or $25/week. We ended up falling in love with the beach just up the road. Iit's at the the Mauna Lani resort. (don't remember the name of the beach. But you can snorkel right off the beach. I know there is better snorkeling at locations like Two Step, but this beach is beautiful and had really nice facilities. And the snorkeling is still really nice
We were extremely pleased with Bill and Diane’s condo. The place was very clean, well stocked and in a great location. It was very helpful to have access to beach chairs, snorkeling gear and beach towels. The condo is close to pool and grills and within walking to shops. Each morning We would watch the sunrise on the lanai and drink tea. It was beautiful and relaxing.
While on the Big Island we went to different beaches, Captain Cook memorial, visited volcanos, drove the coast, dinner cruise and flew to Pearl Harbor for the day.
It was an amazing vacation. Thank you for sharing your home with us.
The location is awesome, close to some of our favourite beaches and next door to shopping if needed. We enjoyed the little extras that come with renting someone's place instead of a hotel room: the snorkels, beach towels and boogie boards. Full kitchen with everything we needed and each family member could choose a comfortable bed and fully stocked washroom. Will visit again!
Aloha - another wonderful stay in this fabulous condo! This is our second stay here and we loved it once again! It is so comfortable and inviting and everything you need is at your fingertips! Walking distance includes shops and “A Bay”, a beautiful beach. Our favourite walk is from the beach in front of the Marriot along the lava and coral coast up to the Hilton. It is absolutely breathtaking! Bill and Diane are a pleasure to work with - so look no further! This is the best! Mahalo 🌴
Condo was great! It was great to have all extra amenities for the beach, like the towels, beach chairs, umbrella, small cooler, etc... We would recommend this condo and dependently stay there again.
Thank you, Diane & Bill, for sharing your lovely condo! It was comfy, spacious, decorated so nicely and had everything one could possibly need! We have visited the Big Island before and have now found the perfect condo ..... which is why we have booked with you again for next year!! Aloha!
Very pleased our Condo was on the top floor as it gave us a great view of the mountains in the distance.
Will recommend your Villa to everyone.
Well maintained and everything worked plus good shopping and restaurants very close.
No problems or difficulties at all.
Kindest regards Jill & Ray Standen see www.raystandencelebrant.com.au
First time stay using VRBO and very happy with the experience. The condo was as advertised and I am happy to give a 5 star rating on this property. The condo was well furnished and the king bed was very comfortable. Also, very important--we felt he condo was very clean when we arrived. We used the condo provided beach chairs and boogie boards on several occasions. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you need. The grills were conveniently located next to the condo by the pool--we cooked brats and steaks purchased at the Foodland Market about 2 or 3 miles north of the condo. On things to do -- go swimming in A-Bay--you can either walk and go through the Marriott Lobby or park by the Lava Lava Beach club which has good facilities at that end of the bay. Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea -- Hapuna is a state park and has plenty of parking and good facilities and just north is Mauna Kea which has limited parking but is a beautiful area. Both are great beaches! Overall, if you are looking for a nice condo that is reasonable priced in the Waikoloa area, this property comes recommended.
The place was a dream! It was great to be able to come home at the end of a long day of exploring the island to such a slice of heaven. The penthouse was just the right size for an extended family of 8, of which 3 were children under ten. We were within walking distance to shops and a great beach, but the archaeological field next door was a sweet bonus. We loved the added touch: beach chairs, boogie boards, water shoes and umbrellas available for us to use. We would not hesitate to stay there again, and our children agree. When asked what was their favorite part of the trip to the big island, they responded the condo. Thanks Bill for sharing your dream house with us!
