We love this condo! Excellent location and a very attentive and welcoming property manager! This was our second stay at this condo and we will return again. We very much appreciated the fruit and goodie basket presented upon our arrival. Even with minor issues that arose, the property manager was prompt in her actions and resolution. Thank you for another wonderful stay!
This was hands down the very best property we have ever stayed at. The unit had beautiful furniture and was very spacious and open, with a fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms. The proximity to so many restaurants and shops was also a huge plus. We just wish we could have stayed here longer, but we decided to island hop (for the sake of our children, who had not been to Hawaii before)- next time we would definitely look to stay on the Big Island for a longer period of time and try to stay at this condo. Kerrie was extremely prompt about communication, even notifying us on the day of our arrival that the previous guest had accidentally broken the shower handle and that a maintenance person had found a temporary fix while awaiting a new shower handle. Would definitely recommend this listing again and again.
We enjoyed our stay, we were comfortable with all the comforts of home. The porch was amazing and the view and birds were fantastic to experience each morning.
Agree with other positive reviews - this condo is very comfortable, spacious, clean and peaceful. Breakfast on the lanai each morning was the perfect way to start each day. Thank you for the welcome basket! We also made good use of the chaise lounges. We had the pool to ourselves. Our family of 3 (2 adults, 1 teen) had such a great time exploring this side of the Big Island with this as our home base. Thank you!
This was a great 3 day getaway for my family of 3. We enjoyed the extra amenities (puzzles!) and yummy welcome/fruit basket. Rooms are spacious and private, lanai was a nice escape in the mornings. We enjoyed the proximity to the beach and quick breakfast options nearby.
Kerrie was very helpful with a few questions I had during my stay and also quickly responsive to an unexpected maintenance issue during our stay. Would very much like to come back and stay longer!
Great location. Really enjoyed breakfast on the Lanai.
Overall it was nice, the snorkeling equipment should have been rinsed by the previous users, it was not.
Sufficient kitchen supplies. Guest bedroom bed should be replaced, and the overhead fan light needs replacement.
Enjoyed our stay and use of the condo. Which is located near shops and activities.
We enjoyed our stay at this lovely condo. Very conveniently located and well-appointed. We had fun at the pool and exploring the area. Hope to come again!
This unit was clean and cared for. It had all the amenities and they go the extra mile to make the stay the best.
The condo was clean & spacious. I thought it would feel small but it wasn’t at all. Love having breakfast on the patio or Lani. You may see a big or two but we’re in Hawaii and that’s expected!
The unit has air conditioning, a washer & dryer and a fairly stocked kitchen with the essentials for everything. A special bonus was the owner provided fresh fruit and some water as a sweet gesture of hospitality that we appreciated. Having breakfast with that sweet delicious pineapple and oranges was great. Super thought of the owner They also provide beach chairs, towels and toys for the kids.
The grounds were quiet and very green. It’s located near the Marriott and Hilton. The area has some clothing shops if you want to go shopping. There is a marketplace to go to for food. The island gourmet store was perfect for the later night food cravings.
We were on the Big Island for my son’s graduation in Hilo. This location was perfect for the post celebratory activities- the beaches! My favorite being Hapuna Beach. The proximity to it was also very good - about 10 miles.
Overall this was a wonderful unit. We’d definitely come back again.
We had a great stay and this condo was perfect for our family of 4. The Lanai was very relaxing with great views of the mountains and ocean. The kitchen had everything we needed for a few meals at home, the beach toys and chairs came in handy, and the location was perfect with beaches, shopping, and resorts all within 5min. The welcome basket with fresh fruit and snacks was very thoughtful and we enjoyed the pool and hot tub. Overall a great place to stay and we look forward to coming back and staying here again.
Great location, Thank you
This property was in a great area, close to the beach, shops and restaurants. Clean and spacious we would definitely stay here again. Thank you!
Beautiful condo. Very clean. Fruit bowl was so nice. Kerrie is amazing to work with
Clean. Well stocked for kitchen and beach items.
Very clean. Easy check-in. Ideal location. Easy access to beaches and tours situated closer to Kona.
We loved our time at the condo. It was well equipped with kitchen/household items as well as tons of beach equipment for adults and kids. Truly had just about everything we could have wanted, and the location was the perfect spot to be in Waikoloa. Host was great as well and very accommodating!
Beautifully appointed condo in a wonderful location. The condo was beautifully decorated, had all of the amenities we could have asked for, and the views of the ocean and mountains were breathtaking! If we are lucky enough to visit next year, we would love to stay in this Condo again! Thank you for a very memorable visit. Mahalo
We have been coming to Island of Hawaii the last 6 years for the month of January and this is the best location on the island for us. We love to go to the beaches, gym, hike and eat. I will some year add biking.
I like to cook and the kitchen supplies did not disappoint. The spices, teas, plastic wrap and bags, pans, storage containers, and the welcome basket was so thoughtful.
The 2 bathrooms had full bottles of body, hair wash and conditioner.
Beach towels and Tommy Bahama chairs for Hapuna and Mauna Kea beach.
We will definitely stay at this unit again. My husband loves the gym and the pool. Just walk out the door and it’s there.
Thank you Kerrie and the owners who have shared their home.
Good location and very comfortable
Very nice condo, kitchen well-stocked, very clean and comfortable.
Beautiful, comfortable, & clean!!!
The Kitchen is very well stocked with dishes, utensils, etc.
The Lanai is well situated, comfortable, and private.
There was a lovely “Welcome Bowl” with papaya, pineapple, oranges, bananas, and treats that was very thoughtful!!
The beach gear was super handy.
Overall, two thumbs up and a thoroughly delightful place to stay!
The condo was great, clean and accommodating. This is a place I would stay again if returning to Hawaii. No complaints at all!
Everything was perfect. The condo had everything we needed and more.
Wow! We had an amazing time and this condo did not disappoint. It was stocked with so many things that we didn’t have to buy much else other than our food for the week. My only complaint if I had one would be that the floors throughout the whole condo need a very good cleaning. There was a sign as you walk in the front door to take your shoes off so we did. Our feet were black after walking around inside just after a little bit. Everything else was perfect. The floors just need some extra attention. The rest of the place was incredibly clean!
Everything was wonderful. Peaceful, gated community. Nice location and pool.
This was our first VRBO experience. Kerrie did an excellent job communicating with us every step of the way.
The condo is awesome! Everything was very clean. Gorgeously decorated. Plenty of extras for cooking. Plenty of beach gear.
We normally stay in Waikoloa during our visits, but this was the first time staying at The Shores. The property is beautifully maintained and everyone was so friendly. This condo was absolutely beautiful. The furnishings were very well maintained and the wood flooring looked brand new. It has a large lanai with a perfect view of Mauna Kea to the right and the ocean to the left while facing a turn in the golf course. We briefly met the property manager upon arrival and she was very nice and helpful. We would definitely stay at this property again on a future visit! Thanks for allowing us to enjoy your home!!!
This was an awesome place to stay, close to the pool and beach access! Great amenities and adventure suggests!
We travel to Hawaii every year going to different islands and we stay in condos. This condo provided everything. The kitchen is well equipped, beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach towels we’re provided. It was nice not having to buy laundry detergent. The kitchen cabinet had spices that we would normally have to buy. Not sure if it’s a “Take some, leave some” practice. The AC worked great!
Our stay in Hawaii was made perfect by having a clean, comfortable and well-appointed place to stay. We enjoyed being able to cook and enjoy all that the Waikoloa and Kohala areas had to offer without driving an hour north from Kona. Would definitely stay at this property again. Thank you for hosting such a wonderful home.
Our first trip to the Big Island for a family vacation was great. Our host, Kerrie, was very organized and gave us our check in /out instructions and a lot of other valuable info when we needed it. The condo was in a great location and was well stocked with things we'd need during our stay. The kitchen was especially well stocked for small things that you wouldn't want to buy, but we were pleasantly surprised that most things we needed were in the cupboards. Our 'Best' surprise was the 2 flashlights in the living room drawers that we used when walking to the crater at Volcanoes National Park at night to see the lava glow in the crater. The guest book was also good to review and see if you wanted to try anything that you didn't know about or read before you came to the condo. Snorkel and beach gear in the outdoor closet was great, but some of it was 'well used.' Thanks Kerrie for a great 1st visit to Hawai'i.
Our stay COULDNT have been more fabulous. From the early check in to the late check out they provided us. The kitchen had everything we needed as well as body boards snorkels JUST EVERYTHING WAS PROVIDED. All we had to do was bring our own food and show up!!! Definitely staying here again!
Best VRBO stay ever. Wonderful place and the owners were so thoughtful by supplying all the necessities. Comfortable beds, well stocked kitchen, exceptionally clean made this stay so great. Thank you for a great stay! Loved it.
Friendly, accommodating host! Lovely interior and a relaxing lanai for morning papaya and toast!
Minutes from great restaurants and beaches.
This is our go-to property!
Super cute, Hawaiian style, great location & size, very clean, nice property! Very close to beach access, on golf course, even got a fantastic view if Mauna lani Observatiry one dayAgent was great and made it all easy, we'd stay there again
The condo was spacious and had all the amenities one would want. The kitchen was well equipped. We would happily rent this condo again. There were thoughtful and generous touches everywhere throughout the condo.
We were welcome by a fresh fruits basket and Macadamia Nut Shortbread. Beach chairs and towels were available when we needed for a beach day. Thanks for making our stay exceptional!
We loved our stay at this wonderful property & enjoyed the amenities & lovely lanai. It is a great location on the beautiful Big Island. We look forward to returning.
The property is nice and quiet except the upstairs neighbors had heavy feet and you are close to neighbor balcony. Can see golfers teeing if and the lava is pretty to view. Had amenities we didn’t use and the bathrooms are dated but functional. The AC has a weird usability and the blower in the second bedroom is directly on your face while you sleep. We finally just turned it off the last night and we slept well in both bedrooms.
Very nice well equipped unit. Clean and spacious. Bathrooms need some updating. Only negative was that the unit is on the second floor and you can hear all the footsteps and closet doors on the third floor.
This was the perfect location for our vacation! It was so nice to have access to the pool and hot tub as well. The check in and out process was seamless and easy. Would definitely stay here again!
Great amenities and decor. Great location. Quiet and well manicured property. Unit very nice but sound proofing not good and wind tunnel noise from bedrooms extreme at times.
Excellent condo in a great location!
Very clean, well kept and spacious for our family of 4 (2 kids), very well equipped for a Hawaii vacation.
Feels way better than pictures.
Great location, close to beaches and other amenities. Had to drive though with kids, but all within couple minutes drive.
Nice complex, nice pool and hot tub.
The condo was in a great location. We could walk everywhere, to restaurants and to get groceries. The condo had a big deck which was very enjoyable to sit out on. The condo was well supplied. We would book this place again as we love the area.
Nice condo. I heard people above me moving around. A water leak situation in the kitchen which was handled promptly but not professionally. Well equipped kitchen. Very clean and welcoming.
It was amazing. The property was fantastic and we really enjoyed the stay!
Loved the wild and semi wild life in the area. The property was spacious for two. Most of the comforts of home but w sunshine. Very quiet and relaxed atmosphere. Definitely recommend the walk to the beach and discoveries walking both N and S. Try the Mauna Lani food land farm grocery. East of Waimea seemed pretty cloudy. Waikoloa Pizza was the best low key option in town.
We truly loved the perfect location of this condo. View of Mauna Kea was so delightful to wake up to a perfect sun rise every morning.
Also, a perfect distance to the pool and also. An excellent walk to all the shops for a morning walk. We loved everything about this property and loved the manager, Kerrie she was so helpful. mahalo😍
Just as advertised! Kerrie was great to communicate with and gave us all the needed info ahead of time. Loved the welcome fruit basket and the unit had plenty of space for our family of four. Clean and well carried for. Great sunrise views off the deck too.
Super rental, clean and well appointed - enjoyed the pool and the tennis courts . Nice and good central location!
The place looks even better than the photos once inside; it is spacious and has a nice layout. Check in and out process was a breeze. You can walk to the nearest beach but may want to drive a little closer; overall was a great stay and completely worth the cost.
Everything is excellent! I would definitely recommend to my family and friends!
Location was great near many restaurants and shops. Condo itself was nice enough, nothing fancy or extraordinary. The pool was under maintenance. And the condo itself could have been better stocked (no coffee, empty tissue boxes). Overall, it was a good place to stay if you are going to spend most of your day outside.
Everything was exactly as stated. The condo was very nice and the proximity to everything was perfect. The fruit basket was a nice surprise and we enjoyed every bite. All the nice accessories, like boogie boards, snorkels, beaches chairs, etc. we’re also a wonderful surprise and truly appreciated. Thanks for making our stay exceptional!
This listing worked out great for our stay on Hawaii island. Kerrie was a great host with amazing communication before, during, and after our stay. We look forward to staying here again soon.
Overall impressed with the property. The pool is great and the location is hard to beat. The condo is well stocked with everything you need to prepare meals.
I read a lot of reviews before booking this condo. In short, my family & I enjoyed this condo & the attention to detail!! Kerrie was wonderful & was very prompt with her responses. We had fresh fruit & Hawaiian candy waiting for us at our arrival (such a thoughtful gesture). It was an easy contactless checking, great for us as we arrived very late at night. I was pleased to find the kitchen fully stocked as we used it often. We enjoyed the beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, umbrella, & all that you will need for a beach day. Will definitely book again!
The beach was a 5 minute drive away easy to get to and fun saw 5 sea turtles in one day there. The condo was clean and comfortable. The service was great. We had to stay in Phonix an extra day to wait for COVID test to come in. The property manager moved us by a day without a charge. That in itself was amazing.
