Aloha and welcome to the idyllic gated community of Hali'i Kai! We're thrilled to introduce you to our exquisite, 180-degree oceanfront condo, where luxury meets affordability, and offers all the indulges, beauty, and relaxation that the Big Island has to offer.

Location: The unit is an top-level unit, with the largest floor plan available in the gated community. The private community includes access to tennis courts, a sport court, a scenic pool, a sand-bottom jacuzzi, and a fully-equipped open air gym. In addition to being oceanfront, Building 15 is an end unit within the complex, ensuring the peace and quiet necessary for relaxation and rejuvenation. The double-lanais provide magnificent sunset views, along with once-in-a-lifetime whale watching opportunities. The salty, Pacific breeze rustling through the palm trees, coupled with the ocean splashing against the lava rocks provide a tranquil background for your evening on the deck, with your Mai Tai, watching the sun dip into the ocean. Just steps away from the two award-winning golf courses and the private Hali’i Kai Ocean Club, the condo is located in a convenient, yet secluded location.

Interior: Our home was decorated to ensure that guests feel immersed in the true Hawaiian spirit. With beautiful mahogany and bamboo lining the interior, the condo truly provides a feeling of indulgence. Oil paintings by local artists decorate the walls, and the furnishings echo the Hawaiian culture.

The spacious first floor ushers you in with a warm, Big Island “Aloha!” The kitchen includes granite counter-tops and top-notch stainless steel appliances with all the essential kitchen tools and supplies. In addition to bar-top seating, the dining room includes a large table to comfortably accommodate six. The living room area includes a plush couch, two recliners, and a large flat screen TV, complete with cable. Off the living room is a lanai that offers comfortable chairs and a table to dine at. On this same floor is our laundry room that is fully-stocked with all of your washing and drying essentials and supplies. The front bedroom includes a Heavenly comfortable Queen bed. The ground-floor bathroom, with a full bath/shower and granite counter tops, is also fully-stocked with island toiletries for all of your pampering needs.

The second level of the house has 2 bedrooms. The "Volcano Room" (so called because it has a view of 4 of the 5 volcanos on our island) is furnished with a queen-sized bed, a large dresser and closet for your storing needs.. A Tempur-Pedic mattress and pillows, rich linens, and an overhead fan help provide you with all of the comfort you could imagine. The upstairs bathroom also includes granite countertops and a high-powered shower to feel fully cleansed after a day at the beach.
The master bedroom is truly a sight to behold. The Tempur-Pedic king bed opens up to the top floor lanai, which puts a whole new meaning to the phrase, “rise and shine”. During whale watching season, you can lie in bed and hear the whales calling to one another, while watching them breach and splash in the azure waters. With plenty of storage for clothes, a flat-screen TV, and a full master bathroom with dual sinks, a jacuzzi bath and full shower, the master bedroom is the quintessential definition of the lap of luxury.

As added amenities, the condo also includes free high-speed WiFi, hairdryers, bath and beach towels, beach chairs to help make your experience complete.
Amenities: Our home is located feet away from the Ocean Club, Hali’i Kai’s private oceanfront clubhouse. The clubhouse includes a picturesque, multi-leveled lagoon style pool, with sweeping views of the Pacific. Plenty of lounge chairs and aqua loungers line the pool deck, and the concierge desk offers towels and ice cold lemon water to make your lounging experience relaxing and enjoyable. The pool area also includes a sand-bottom Jacuzzi, well-maintained restroom facilities, an outdoor showering area, outdoor BBQs, and an undercover sitting area providing the ideal atmosphere for enjoying a good book. The Ocean Club also serves up lunch and dinner at the Ocean Bar and Grill. The friendly bartenders provide excellent service (try the ahi poke and the lava flow) and are also a wealth of knowledge, providing insider perspective on restaurants and activities on the island. If you crave a sweat session to start the day off on the right foot, the open air, newly-renovated gym cannot be matched. Treadmills, elliptical machines, and exercise bikes, along with a full rack of free weights provide an excellent workout, while taking in the serene ocean views. Whether your intention is to sip on a tropical drink poolside, or play with the family in the rejuvenating, saltwater pool, the Ocean Club is the perfect place to spend your vacation. The grounds also include tennis courts and a sport court, for those who crave a bit more action.

The Area: Hali’I Kai is an oceanfront gated community located on the Kohala Coast. This unique residential area is just 18 miles away from the Kona airport and is easily accessible off the main highway. Nestled within the Waikoloa Beach Resort area is this ideal spot for either a romantic vacation with your significant other or a memorable family trip. With Mauna Kea looming in the background and the breathtaking Pacific Ocean out the front window, the location is both unique and welcoming. Directly outside the Ocean Club, the “Trail by the Sea” will take you on a leisurely stroll to the Hilton Waikoloa, where you can enjoy a number of amenities and restaurants. Continuing on the trail, you will eventually come to Anaeho’omalu Bay, where you can spend the afternoon playing on the beach or snorkeling in the warm waters. Just minutes down the highway is the gorgeous Hapuna Beach, offering another opportunity to splash around in the clear ocean.
The Waikoloa Beach Resort also has a number of delicious restaurants that serve up fresh cuisine and island inspired bites to delight your taste buds. For the golf fans, the resort area has two 18-hole golf courses, that include pristine views of the Pacific. The King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace provide plenty of shopping opportunities, whether you desire a new bathing suit or an authentic Hawaiian ukulele. Island Gourmet Market, located within the Queen’s Marketplace, will satisfy all of your grocery needs while on the island.

In actuality, you could potentially spend your entire vacation within the Waikoloa Beach Resort vicinity, and have all of your wants and needs satisfied. Although, if you desire some action and adventure, we highly recommend you take the time to see all that the beautiful Big Island has to offer.

We are fully committed to making your experience a positive one, and we take great pride in ensuring that you and your loved ones have a memorable vacation that you can cherish for years to come. We are excited to share our lovely home with you and hope that you will come back and stay with us again. Mahalo!

This was our 3rd stay at Hali Kai and it never disappoints! The complex is amazing and the location of this unit is perfection! We enjoyed our time on both lanais for coffee and happy hour! The whale watching is amazing! The pool area is stunning and the Ocean grill is a huge plus for the property. The food was excellent and the evening sunsets are gorgeous! The unit is spacious and comfortable. The sectional on the 2nd floor is a very nice addition to the space! The unit could use a few touch ups but overall highly recommended! Book your stay you won’t regret it! Mark was very prompt with return communication and super easy to work with! Mahalo!!’

What a beautiful view!! We spent so much time on the lanai, especially the top floor. The furniture was so comfortable and we loved watching all the whales!! The view is hard to beat!! And the ocean club is such an added bonus. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

This is an breathtakingly beautiful location, totally oceanfront with whales swimming by. The unit is large and comfortable. The living room couches and chairs were comfortable for reading, and the couch on the upstairs lanai was particularly nice for reading and viewing the ocean. The lower deck has a dining table and chairs, and we ate breakfast there most days. The beds have foam padding toppers - if you like a softer bed you will love these. The bedding was all well-cleaned. The bedroom dressers had ample storage space and insides of drawers were clean. The kitchen is very well equipped - the owners invite guests to use the various oils, seasonings, etc., and to replace what is used up. They also left laundry detergent, which was much appreciated. They have a lot of food storage containers, and even some ice packs and a picnic bag so you can keep your lunch chilled on the beach. Various outdoor chairs and snorkeling items were provided, also much appreciated! The pool club is a short walk and great for lunch, drinks, or dinner. There is a lovely little workout room there as well. We would definitely stay here again if the unit were available for our travel dates.

Incredible ocean views from lanais. Beautiful grounds. Great restaurants nearby. We have traveled to the Big Island many times. We were very content to watch whales from the lanais. We would definitely return! Thank you.

We very much enjoyed our stay at this property. It was amazing that they had snorkles and boogie boards and chairs to use at the beach. Our kiddos were SO excited when we found those. We appreciated the amentities they included like spices, Hawaiian coffee, etc, but make sure you pick up napkins, paper towels and a sponge when you go to the store because we forgot those! The view was AMAZING and location was great. Our only negative feedback is that it was that the pillows were very much lacking, only 1 non decorative pillow per person (there were 6 of us) and the cleaning people didn't do a great job cleaning the home before we got there. The towels in the bathrooms were still very damp when we checked in and much of the furniture was quite dusty. Thanks for a great stay and we will be back!

Condo exceeded our expectations! Immaculate and so thoughtfully stocked with essentials. Lanai views were amazing of the Pacific. Upstairs lanai was our favorite spot with the oh so comfortable sectional seating. The Ocean Club was convenient and food was delicious and reasonably priced. Will definitely be back and renting this beautiful condo again!

The views were stunning! The perfect spot for our vacation! The condo had so much room and was spotless. Great kitchen. Both Decks all you see is water. The gym area was ocean front by the pool and restaurant. Live music poolside and by restaurant. What a great surprise. Mark was the best VRBO host we have had. Responsive and full of great info! There is a great book he put together that’s in the condo with lots of helpful hints! We will definitely return!!!!

The property was beautiful and spacious as described. We highly recommend the Hali’i Kai community having enjoyed stays in various units the last 5 trips to Hawaii so it always feels like home. This oceanfront property offers two spacious lanais to take in the spectacular sunsets and enjoy the stunning ocean views. The well thought out unit offers plenty of space, a well appointed kitchen, and is beautifully decorated. The owners also took the time to label light switches to make our lives easier. We reached out to Mark at our initial check in and he was incredibly responsive and helpful. We enjoyed nightly sunsets and when we weren’t exploring would enjoy the breezy lanai taking in a meal or cocktails. Truly a wonderful location, we would absolutely stay in this unit again. 5⭐️

The condo was perfect: clean, spacious and the most well equipped place we have stayed. The kitchen had everything. The lanais have beautiful ocean views.

Beautiful location - sunsets were AMAZING. Very quiet property. Somewhat busy because of spring break, but the pool was never crowded. Ocean Club food and staff were great. Mark could not have been easier to work with. He was helpful, responsive and gave great recommendations. The condo had everything we needed and we loved our stay. It went by too fast!

We loved sitting on the balcony watching the ocean. Saw several whales one day right from the balcony. The entire condo was well stocked for all our needs, especially the kitchen. Short walk to the pool. The owner was quick to answer questions and left a nice welcome gift. Would definitely stay here again!

This was our second time staying here. It was just as amazing the second time as the first. The condo is perfect—location and condo. Every day we saw many (MANY) whales and about half the time saw spinner dolphins. We love the layout of the condo and the 2 lanais. Mark, the owner, was very responsive to every question we had. We so enjoyed our stay and plan to go back again!

Everything about this condo is excellent. Just a short walk from the pool and restaurant, right on the ocean. We watched whales swim by and watched the sunset every night. The condo itself is beyond well stocked and it was awesome to make dinners every night to relax after busy days. Bedrooms, bathrooms, all rooms were as listed and immaculate. It was great to have a home away from home for a few days instead of a hotel. We appreciate you having us, and we'll be back in the future if schedules a line. Thank you.

This spacious, well equipped condo provides all the conveniences of home in a place nothing like home - two Oceanside balconies, a tennis court/pickle ball court and Oceanclub pool. The kitchen is wonderfully well equipped, the deck has a terrific grill. And the resort area has bike rentals, golf courses, beach access and snorkeling. Old Hawaiian walking trails and petroglyphs provide a taste of the island’s history preserved. Perfect place to relax in perfect weather, nighttime clear skies with myriad stars to gaze at - restorative holiday.

Enjoyed watching the ocean activity from our lanai and the close proximity to the pool club. Grounds are beautiful and meticulously maintained. Kitchen and laundry room was well stocked and we appreciated having multiple towels. Owner is responsive and home was very clean when we arrived.

From the moment of booking until Check out could not have been smoother This house is top shelf from the views to the stunning pool and restaurant with basically your own private chef. The team at the pool and restaurant are some of the friendliest people you capfuls ever meet

A beautiful property with everything you could want! We experienced no issues at all, and I highly recommend this property to anyone looking for a scenic, comfortable, clean, and well-managed place on the Big Island. The Ocean View Club added a comfortable, convenient, and fun place to spend some of the time! Close access to any and all expeditions we wanted to do during the week! A 5-star vacation!!

There are too many stairs to climb to the front door and inside to the bedrooms… not too convenient for elderly people who may have difficulty walking. Other small concerns were conveyed directly to the host. Th r location and the view are by far the major highlights of this rental.

This property was great! It was clean and comfortable and located close to shops and restaurants. I loved that things were labeled and booklet on the counter had great directions and helpful tips. It was so nice to have the little things provided (like dish soap, a clean sponge and beach towels). The views from the balconies was amazing, especially at sunset. Appliances were all top-notch if you want to cook on your stay (we chose to eat out). The community pool is beautiful and only about a 2 minute walk. The food at the pool restaurant was delicious and very fresh. The owner was quick to reply to emailed questions and even reached out to make sure we got checked in okay. I can't say enough good things. My only complaint, and it wasn't a big deal, was that the master bedroom mattress was a bit of a dome so I felt like I was sleeping on a hill. Overall my husband, myself and our two teenage children were all very comfortable and would totally stay here again! Highly recommend :)

This property is wonderful! Very easy communication with the owner. The unit had absolutely everything you need, from beach chairs and towels to any kitchen item you need to cook. Love the grill! The property is beautiful and so well maintained. The pool and bar/restaurant is a 2 minute walk. So nice to be able to walk over to happy hour. The property is very quiet, which is so appreciated when you want to sit on the lanai and enjoy the amazing sunsets. Nice hiking trails right out front - short hike to a beach. I highly recommend this unit for your stay.

15G is the perfect vacation destination with very responsive owners. The condo is very well stocked, clean and spacious. Both lanais had amazing sunsets a perfect way to end the day. It is a short walk to the Ocean Club to enjoy a good meal and cocktails with great staff. The pool is a great way to relax and take it all in. We look forward to our next visit.

We felt at home, this unit was fully stocked for our 2 week stay. Our only disappointment was that we had to leave. It was clean and well maintained. You can tell they take great pride in their home.

This condo checked off all of our boxes! It is an amazing condo and location right off the shoreline with a lanai that enabled us to sit out morning and late afternoon watching the whales and dolphins. Every day there were many, many whales just off the shoreline. The living spaces were perfect for our group of 6 and the kitchen was very well-equipped for all the cooking in that we did (fresh fish, shrimp, local beef). It was a quick walk to the pool and fitness center as well as the trail that we walked each day, both south and north of Hali'i Kai. Perfect location for all of our excursions throughout the island. We will be back!


Dave H.

Hali'i Kai is amazing, and Unit 15G is the nicest and best home i've rented (5 prior visits). Truly luxurious. Nonstop unobstructed whale viewing from the two lanais, a shower with an ocean view, and a very short walk to the lovely ocean club and its great food + drinks. We shall return!

We loved our family vacation here. The condo is spacious and literally has everything you could possibly need. The host is quick to answer any questions. You can hear the ocean every time you open the doors and the views are incredible. Loved the upstairs balcony and relaxing in the gravity chairs. We walked to the pool each evening to watch the sunset and grab a Pina Colada from the bar. We took day trips up north to hike and explore Kona. There is also a path right outside the door that you can walk for miles along the ocean and through the other resorts in Waikoloa. Hali’Kai is by far the best place to stay! We had a wonderful relaxing week!

We had a wonderful family vacation at this well appointed townhouse style condo. It sits right on the ocean so morning coffee, watching a pod of Dolphins go by and sunsets are just a few of the highlights we enjoyed. The development is clean and well cared for with sidewalks for nice strolls. The unit is conveniently close to the pool, bar and cafe which we used many times. The floor plan works for 3 couples with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms which was perfect for me, my wife, our 2 sons and their significant others. The Lanai off the master suite was especially appreciated for listening to the waves before going to bed. All in all, this is one of the nicest places we have stayed on the Islands and we plan to come back. By the way, the owner was attentive and easy to communicate with. Thanks Mark!

We stayed here in early October of 2021. Condo was large and spacious and enjoyed our time here very much. For the times that we stayed in and cooked, the appliances are all very high end and make cooking and cleaning a pleasure. The two balconies to sit and soak up the ocean waves coming in we’re worth every penny of paying more to be ocean front. We would love to come back here again and if you are on the fence about staying here, you won’t regret it!

Our family has been using Vrbo for about 20 years and we an honestly say that this unit has been one of the best. The unit itself was just what we wanted and expected. The furnishings were very nice and the beds comfortable. The kitchen is well appointed and had everything we needed and then some. The ocean view was amazing and we enjoyed it every morning with coffee. The on site restaurant was surprisingly very good and the staff were very friendly. The area was perfect for relaxing and doing some site seeing. This was such a much needed vacation and words cannot express how much we appreciated the relaxing atmosphere this rental accomplished. We would recommend this unit anytime and hope to come back soon. The Gill Family

We had a wonderful time at Hali’i Kai! The location and view cannot be beat. Condo was well equipped for any type of traveler- couples, families, those seeking a relaxing stay or adventure. The proximity to amenities at Waikoloa’s King and Queens shops is a huge bonus as well as the on site restaurant, Ocean Club Bar and Grill- the pork nachos were excellent! The only issue we had was the check in office being closed after our arrival due to a delayed flight (that’s on American Airlines though). Seems that they are open limited hours during Covid but I was able to check in the next morning and get our parking and pool passes. Definitely recommend that you stop looking and stay here! We plan to return!!

My family and I really loved staying here. The three bedrooms were perfect for us and my two boys (ages 7 and 10) really liked having their own room with queen sized beds. All of the beds were comfortable. My kids slept 11 hours straight each night. That never happens at home! The ocean view and two lanais were perfect. We thoroughly enjoyed the pool and restaurant. It's just a short walk away to the Hilton and a black sand beach so we got to enjoy the area without even having to drive. Mark was very communicative and a great host. I couldn't have asked for a better place to enjoy our time on the Big Island!

What a fabulous place to call home for our week's stay with two other couples. The location is beyond perfect - you can't get any closer to the water. With an unobstructed view, every evening we watched the sunset and had perfect stargazing opportunities. The lanai is not huge but as 6 adults, when we were home at the condo, we spent all of our time enjoying it. We never even ate at the large dining room table . The kitchen is very well stocked and it felt like home as we prepared meals. There living room furniture is very comfortable as are the beds. The master bedroom is huge as is the adjoining bathroom. There are plenty of linens, beach equipment, bathroom supplies. You could live here for an extended period very easily and very comfortably. The pool and outdoor gym are lovely. The pool tends to get very crowded in the later afternoon (after everyone returns from the beach or adventures) but in the mornings, hardly anyone is there. Enjoy your stay....we definitely did and can't wait to return!

Our family of 6 enjoyed our stay on this amazing property! The beautiful artwork, spacious 3 bedroom condo, and amazing views were some of the highlights we enjoyed. I loved sitting outside on the top lanai listening to the sound of the ocean. It was truly blissful and peaceful. I read some reviews about the air conditioning and was a little worried. However, we did not touch it once because the temperature was perfect in the condo. Mark, thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us. We hope to visit your property again someday!

What an exceptional place for a vacation! Very roomy for our family of five, and the view is second to none, looking right out at the ocean from the upper or lower lanai. Everything is clean and well kept, and they have equipped the place extremely well with cookware, high end appliances, big TV's and fans, an excellent BBQ, and nice/comfortable beds and furniture. The AC was having some issues but the owner worked hard to get it fixed and stayed in close communication with us throughout our stay, which we very much appreciated. Hope to stay here again at some point!
