We had such a wonderful stay at the condo. The kitchen was well equipped, there were plenty of towels and linens were in great condition. The unit was very clean and looked even nicer in person. We used the golf clubs in the garage and took advantage of the discounted golf rate which made for a fun day.
Our favorite activity was going to the amazing pool area to watch the sunset and chat with other tourists and owners. Some nights there was even live music. The golf cart was an added bonus even though the pool isn’t far.
The process of booking and checking in was easy. We received a lot of helpful information before our arrival and always had someone we could communicate with. We loved the Big Island and can’t wait to return! This condo made our vacation care free.
Fantastic condo for a family of 4 in a great resort.
We really enjoyed our stay. The condo was well equipped for our needs and was a welcomed retreat for our family.
LOVED the view and access to golf course, swimming pool, and club. The condo was everything we needed as a home base while we explored the island! Communication with owner and concierge was very pleasant and they responded in timely manner every time!
Well equipped kitchen and garage had anything you needed for a trip to the beach. The property is well manicured with lovely landscaping.
If we make it back to the island again this is the first place I will look into! Will highly recommend this property and unit to anyone we learn is going to the Big Island!
We really enjoyed our stay at this property. It was clean and comfortable.
We have stayed in the Waikoloa resort area several times, and this was by far our favorite place! We loved the location close to the water, walking distance to Hilton and ocean-front sunsets, short hiking trail to black sand beach, incredible ocean front pool and fantastic pool restaurant/bar, quiet complex with gorgeous landscaping. This unit was perfect for us. We had everything we needed to cook, keep up with laundry, relax on the lanai, and enjoy the beach! We loved having boogie boards and other beach stuff to use! Super easy check-in/check-out process, owners communicated quickly, great cancellation policy in case anything came up before our trip. We had such an awesome time and will definitely be back to 9B! Thank you!
Loved the condo and location. Unlike some previous reviews, we found the Ocean Club staff to be very welcoming. We ate there and hung out one evening to watch the sunset. My son also worked there one afternoon. I would highly recommend the condo and owner (she had great communication).

We are so happy with our stay. The condo is clean, comfortable, and has a lot of amenities. The property itself is beautiful and well located. The condo and garage are well stocked with items making it easy to cook, clean, bbq, and have fun at the beach!
We hope to stay here again!
We saw and enjoyed many of the beautiful sights around the island, but at the end of the day the calm and peace we enjoyed just staying at this place to unwind was perfect. It was a great place to stay. Would recommend this place to anyone.
Great condo in perfect location. The golf was an added bonus too.
Awesome apartment on the golf course with everything you need. Five stars *****
The unit was very nice and had everything we needed for our trip. The garage was full of beach stuff, including chairs, beach umbrellas, and snorkel gear, which made our beach trips hassle free. We also took advantage of the golf discounts at the resort course, which saved us about $70 per round, as well as the clubs that were also in the unit saving us additional rental fees.
The communication was also great, and we would definitely recommend staying at this property.
We loved everything about our stay here! The condo is beautiful, well stocked, the beds are comfortable - just perfect. The homeowner and property manager are very welcoming and accommodating. Highly recommend staying here.
We had a wonderful time staying at this property. It was a great home base for our Scuba diving and beach day/boogie boarding fun. The beach towels, boogie boards, and beach umbrella were welcome items to have access to.
The best was sitting by the pool, enjoying a mai tai, and watching whales just off the coast - two days in a row. Can't beat that!
Overall the place was clean, quiet, comfortable, and everything we were looking for during our Hawaiian vacation.
Lisa's place was wonderful. Kitchen was extremely well appointed, Lisa was fantastic with the communication and a very thoughtful welcome gift, the ocean club and swimming pool were awesome. We would gladly stay here again.
We had a great stay recently at this property. It is a 2bd/2ba ground floor unit in the Hali'i Kai community of Waikoloa. There is a beautiful golf and ocean view. The unit is clean and modern with a well stocked kitchen and a gas grill. There is a nice welcoming gift upon arrival. The grounds are beautiful with a nice pool/workout area, tennis court, basketball court, and putting green. There is also ample beach gear, sports equipment, and a golf cart. Did not have any issues and overall it was a relaxing enjoyable vacation.
Great location With all the amenities to enjoy your stay In
First off the condo is very well represented in the pictures provided. Very accurate in all descriptions. Amenities are top notch and the condo is well taken care of.
It was ready early for us which was greatly appreciated.
The grounds are beautiful and the pool was my dream pool and it didn’t disappoint.
Only thing that we are not used to was the rules of no outside beverages due to the fact it has a bar within the club. Not even a yeti with ice water was allowed.
I will say the food we did have at the club was very good and the Mai Tai’s were the best we had out of the many we had in our 2 weeks in Hawaii.
Lisa was in constant contact with me before booking and right up until go home time. She kept us informed of road closures due to the Ironman taking place the day we left and all the road closures. She is one of the most caring hosts I have ever had the pleasure of dealing with. I can’t thank her enough.
I would suggest this condo to anyone I know.

Condo is just as described and more. Very clean, comfortable and equipped with everything you need for your stay in Hawai'i. The location is an easy drive to beaches and shopping. If you don't want to leave the grounds the pool and club house are excellent too. We hope to be back soon.
What a pleasurable stay at Hali’i Kai 9B! With thoughtful amenities throughout, our family of four had an outstanding time. We enjoyed the welcome basket and stunning sunsets on the lanai. The fully stocked kitchen/grill made it easy to prepare meals. Also fully stocked were the items for activities! Golf clubs, boogie boards, floating rings, coolers, and snorkel sets really helped us take advantage of the perfect location with quick access to world renowned beaches. And we all enjoyed trips to the gorgeous pool and Ocean Club in the golf cart! I would absolutely recommend this condo if you want a perfect stay in the Waikoloa area.
We had a great time staying at this property. The property manager was very helpful and responsive. The property itself is beautifully designed. There is a small shopping area close by, (everyone loved the shaved ice shop) as well a nice beach. The common pool area is a great place to watch the sunset. Overall we really enjoyed the stay.
A wonderful stay in a beautiful spacious condo that had everything we needed and more. Beds were comfortable, kitchen and grill were perfect for cooking in, views were great! We enjoyed the pool and the restaurant there too. Lisa is a wonderful host and welcomed us with a fantastic basket of goodies. We couldn’t have been happier here and hope to return someday!!
Truly a wonderful stay in the Waikoloa Village overlooking the golf course tee box on the signature hole, with expansive ocean view. Our host Lisa had the unit well stocked with everything we needed. Beds were very comfortable, too. Hope we can return next year!
Everything was as described or even better in person! the condo is clean and well equipped. Kitchen has everything you need and more. Snorkeling and beach gear are provided which is very useful. the property is beautiful and we loved hanging out at the pool. Communication with Lisa was easy, she was fast at responding and made sure we had a perfect stay. We highly recommend this property!
Our family thoroughly enjoyed staying at Lisa's place! It was a great gathering place for our friends and family who were staying nearby at the Hilton property. They commented several times about how much they liked the condo, the location, the view, and the amenities. I think they may have been a little jealous that they weren't staying at the Hali'i Kai!
The unit was even better than described...everything was immaculately clean and the beds were very comfortable. We appreciated the welcome basket, the binder of information about what was nearby, and all of the pantry items left by other guests. The well-stocked kitchen and outdoor grill allowed us to make family meals. My husband and friend even golfed two days while we were there! It was such a bonus to have clubs for them to use and the discounted rate on the beach course.
We absolutely loved the pool and the on-site restaurant. The staff was very accommodating and the food/drinks were tasty and reasonably priced. We used the golf cart to check out the property a couple of days and were able to use several of the beach/pool items in the garage.
Lisa's place is by far the best VRBO we've stayed at to date. I would highly recommend anyone to visit this beautiful property and experience Lisa's hospitality!
Had a wonderful stay at this unit and property. Lisa was great to work with and welcoming gift basket and golf course membership benefit were added perks! Highly recommend!
What a beautiful resort! Well kept grounds, lovely pool, and warm people. The unit was wonderful as well - everything was clean, the beds were comfortable, and the patio was awesome. We had great views over the golf course and out to the ocean - amazing place to start and end a day!
We had a lovely stay at this condo. Everything was clean and accurately described! The property is so beautiful and we enjoyed the pool and sunset views. Lisa is an excellent host, and communication and check in were a breeze. Definitely recommend and we look forward to our return!
We really enjoyed our stay here. This was our third trip to the big island, and was by far our favorite place we’ve stayed. Great location, convenient to restaurants, shops and the beaches north of Kona. Nice view of the golf course and sunsets. We loved that the unit had all the stuff you need for the beach. Kitchen was well stocked with essentials. Lisa is great to work with and is super responsive. We had a late flight out and she was able to provide us with a late check out (due to timing of the group staying after us). Would definitely stay here again!
We enjoyed our week at this very comfortable property. I appreciated the communication from the property manager/owner and her hospitality.
Everything was great…avid senior golfers “golf discount” perfect.
This property is exceptional. The location is fantastic, the pool/bar/restaurant is beyond wonderful and the property itself was supplied with everything anyone could need. The property owner was very supportive, promptly responding to all of our questions and helping us with golf reservations. We are already planning our next visit.
Will absolutely come back again. Lovely property and accommodation!
This property was amazing. The condo was beautiful, clean, with amazing amenities! They had everything we could need for the beach or the pool. And having the golf cart was icing on the cake. Would definitely rent it again and hope too very soon!
Property was just how it was advertised and location couldn't have been any better. We were there for my sons golf tournament and it worked perfectly. Golf Cart was a nice bonus!
The condo is in a great community with an awesome view! The owner responses quickly to questions. We will return again.
Property is awesome and setting with nightly sunset viewing is spectacular. golf cart and golf membership at Waikoloa and real bonus. Definitely looking at staying again!
I cannot imagine that there is a better place to stay in Hawaii. The condo had everything we needed to enjoy our time here and the view was actually better than the pictures! The Ocean Club is a huge asset - a great place to swim and eat anytime we didn't feel like cooking or wanted to spend more time in the water without going to the beach. The owner was super helpful and went above and beyond. Highly recommend.
This is a wonderful condo in a wonderful location. The pool is one of the best I have ever been to and the views are lovely every time you step out the door. The unit is comfortable and well appointed. I would definitely stay here again.
Beautiful resort with ocean views and terrific pool
Our family of 4 had a wonderful stay. The host had a nice selection of beach gear for us to use and the kids likes the golf cart. This place is convenient to nice beaches and snorkeling.
We could not have asked for a better stay. We loved the Hali'i Kai property and unit 9B was fantastic. Has everything you could ever want/need. Lisa was very responsive and great to work with. Already readying our plans for next year.
The property was beautifully kept, the pool restaurant was better than expected and the condo had everything we needed! The owners were amazingly responsive and had several, personal touches to make the stay even more special.
This property exceeded our expectations. My family and I will be returning again!
We loved staying at this condo. The condo had everything we needed and the grounds were beautiful and well kept. The ocean club has a great pool and the food is also really good. Lisa was great to work with!
Everything about this stay was effortless. House is super clean and luxurious. Everything you need right at your fingertips… close to all the shops, the pool, and a short drive to many beaches. Beach club food is amazing and the staff is wonderful! Owner made everything so easy!
Fantastic property, and the communication from Lisa was outstanding throughout the entire process. We spent most of our time exploring the island, but my family thoroughly enjoyed the time we spent around the pool and walking the trail along the shore. I highly recommend this rental. We are already talking about our next trip to Hawaii, and we will definitely stay here again if available.
Lisa's place could not have been more perfect. She is an incredible host, promptly answering questions along the way. The condo is the ideal location in the community. Looks out onto the golf course and has a beautiful view of the ocean. Sunsets were amazing! The beach club is a short walk and is a lovely place to cool off and relax. The condo was just as pictured, and amply appointed with everything you could possibly need. We did not want to leave, but know where we will stay when we return!
Lisa is without question the most incredible host going above and beyond to make our stay comfortable and memorable. She responded immediately to all requests including providing alternative accommodations when our flight departure change extended our time on the island. Her property property is well appointed, very clean, comfortable and in a gorgeous setting located on the 7th fairway of the golf course's signature hole and a close stroll to the pool with incredible views of the sunset. I will definitely stay at this property in the future or any others she may rent on the island.
The location is fantastic, directly out of the the lanai is the golf course, beyond the course the beautiful views of the ocean. The pool and restaurant are great places to relax right by the ocean. The owner Lisa is extremely helpful and the home is stocked with any supplies you may need.
From the start this entire process was stress free. My wife and I are healthcare workers and parents to a 5 and 3 year old. We needed a much desired break and decided to stay a Hali’i Kai because of some of my patients stating how wonderful the resort is. Everyone was spot on. What a place! And 9B was a gem of a find. Lisa the owner was so pleasant to work with. She even gave us a small discount for our dedication to serving the public which we didn’t expect. My wife came to tears when Lisa messaged us saying she wanted to give us a discount. The home is clean. Amazing view. We got a gift package that was waiting for us which again we didn’t expect. Lisa even helped us finding a Rental car. Above and beyond. My wife and I are already talking about coming back with our kids in Oct 2021 to this same exact rental. Loved it. Thank you so much Lisa!!
Love the place, the unit has everything you need.
It’s a great location with great Amenities! 9B has a great view and being on the golf course is fantastic! If there is ever anything wrong the property manager is easy to get a hold of and will take care of it ASAP. I would return for sure!
We visit the Big Island at least two weeks every year; however, we have not stayed at this beautiful neighborhood before. We are so glad we made this choice. The entire visit was fantastic, from start to finish. We were greeted by a thoughtful, lovely welcome basket and information notebook. The unit/condo was absolutely impeccable -- clean, spacious, with plenty of storage and superbly well-equipped, especially the beautiful kitchen. The unit is situated on the golf course with a view of the ocean (and whales). The entire complex is beautiful with a great layout and exquisite landscaping throughout. The unit is a short walk from a gorgeous pool, on the ocean, which includes the friendly staff and professional staff at the full-service bar/restaurant, an upscale ambience and an unbelievable a 270-degree view of the Big Island, Maui and ... more whales than I ever have seen in my 22 years visiting the Big Island. For runners like me (or walkers, too!), the complex is part of the beautiful Hilton neighborhood, close to many great restaurants. This complex includes miles and miles of great running paths with views of several dormant volcanoes, which are lighted for your convenience should you have to telework to Washington DC and run at 5:00 am are safe and as a bonus, are protected by herds of adorable wild but friendly goats of all ages. Most of all, our wonderful stay was enhanced by the attention to detail, care and customer service of our hosts, who stayed in contact with us throughout our stay to ensure everything was going well. As a result of all this, we plan to return next year if I don't find a unit to buy on my own in this complex! We thank our hosts for a lovely stay at their property; it was a great choice.
Beautiful place with a beautiful view of the golf course and ocean.
There is so much to say about our stay here. Lisa, the owner, wants your vacation to be perfect for you. She has a gift basket for you upon arrival with information about things to do on the island and a bunch of little goodies from the island. The condo is so comfortable and absolutely beautiful! Another plus is all the beach items. There are boogie boards, beach toys, snorkle gear, beach chairs with an umbrella! If you golf the condo also has a golf cart, tees, and golf balls. When we come back we will definitely rent this condo!
The owner couldn't of been anymore helpful. The views of the whales breaching and the home had everything you could ask for. We will be back
A fantastic place to stay in a wonderful part of Hawaii! We know the Waikoloa area well and have stayed at Hali’i Kai before, it has great facilities, including an ocean club with good food and perfect sunset views.
The check in experience was flawless, even with the Covid considerations. The unit was spotlessly clean and beautifully furnished, the owner had even provided a brand new Weber BBQ grill which we eagerly made use of!
Ocean and Hualalai views from the patio were idyllic, with views of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa from the front too!
There were whales frolicking in the ocean and the provided binoculars came in very useful. The whales even sang us a song for our departure!
Highly recommended, would absolutely return!
This condo unit was absolutely perfect--meticulously clean, great location, and plenty of amenities. The view is breathtaking, and we were wowed by the sunsets every night. There were plenty of towels, beach toys, and beach chairs to use. Lisa and her property manager were very helpful and communicative. We also loved the lawn area in front of the property--perfect for my 1-year-old to run around in. Would highly recommend!
We have stayed in many VRBO and AIRBNB places around the world. Lisa was by far the the best, most responsive, and helpful host of any of them. The welcoming treats of a bottle of wine, coffee and macadamia nuts were a special surprise. Lisa shared all the fun items in her garage: snorkel gear, bikes, golf clubs—even her golf cart.
The condo was beautiful, fully equipped and in a perfect location. The pool and amenities were terrific. We watched the sunset each night from the pool area. We ate at the Ocean Club, which adjoins the pool, multiple times. Very tasty and reasonably priced.
We highly recommend Lisa and her condo.

The Resort - The Hali'i Kai is one of the best - we have been to all the islands and to a number of different hotels/condos, etc. and this is our favourite - great location near to almost all the best beaches on the Big Island, beautifully landscaped property, upscale and well maintained units, beautiful pool at the ocean's edge. Big bonus for us is the Ocean Club restaurant. Wonderful to be able to start happy hour at the pool and stay for sunset. Servers Kathy and Safire are attentive and the restaurant food is good. We love the combination condo style units with the resort option of an on-site restaurant. The hot tub with its sandy bottoms is one of our favourites. Our only comment on improvement for the resort would be a few more umbrellas or cabanas down at the pool for more shade at times. Otherwise, the pool furniture is super comfy and having towel service is a huge plus. We also make use of the tennis courts by playing pickle ball and in years past our son has enjoyed the basketball.
The Unit - This is a two bedroom unit that is beautifully decorated and has all the amenities you should need for your stay. Loved the new flooring! We appreciated the binoculars - likely for whale watching but we used them to check out golfer's shots on the nearby fairway. We enjoyed breakfast on the lanai with the ocean view and view of the morning golfers. Sunset on the lanai was fantastic - we were torn with being at the unit or at the pool for sunset as both are fabulous. Bed was comfy, there were lots of towels and supplies such as shampoo, laundry detergent, etc. We only used the air conditioning at night but that was a big bonus this trip as it was very humid and few Tradewinds during our stay. Another huge plus to us this trip was the Waikoloa golf option - we played a couple of rounds at discounted rates thanks to the membership by the owners. We are big walkers/hikers, etc. and oddly one of our favourite things was driving down to the pool and back in the unit's golf cart - that was special! The owners have lots of great toys in the garage - from the golf cart mentioned, 2 sets of golf clubs, bikes, beach chairs (great Tommy Bahama ones), tennis racquets, etc.
The Owner: Lisa was great to deal with and very responsive to any e-mails. She really went out of her way to make sure our stay was a good one. The check-in process was easy and the staff at the Castle Resorts were friendly. We'll be back!
Another fun stay at Waikaloa. Lots of golf and pool days! Thanks Lisa
Loved the condo. Beautiful resort. Couldn’t be better.
This resort is in a beautiful location of the Big Island off of Waikoloa Beach drive, from the lanai you can see golfers tee off towards the ocean!! The inside of the condo is just as nice - comfortable, clean, modern. The golf discount from the owner's membership for the Waikoloa Beaches and Kings golf course is amazing. We played 18 holes of the Kings course for $50 (normal $185) and rental clubs for $25 (normal for 18 holes is $55). The condo has a lot of amenities so you don't have to bring/buy shampoo/conditioner, laundry detergent. They provide coolers, snorkel, beach chairs, tennis rackets and even golf balls!! My kids loved the 4 person golf cart that you can drive around the resort :-) And the cleaning fee is reasonable compared to other condo owners - $150. The owner gifted us with macadamia nuts, bag of coffee beans and a bottle of wine :-) Thank you Lisa and Mike!!
The accommodations were great in a very desirable location; we would definitely stay here again or recommend to friends. It was perfect for two couples with who love golf and the beach.
The condo was beautifully appointed, clean & conveniently located! Lisa was very responsive to our questions before arriving! We had a wonderful time on this side of the island and the condo provided a comfortable “home base” for all our activities and family gatherings. The condo was fully stocked with everything we needed for a comfortable stay!
The Manalili Family
We had a wonderful vacation on the Big Island and our stay in Lisa’s beautiful condo had alot to do with that! Lisa was very easy to communicate with and very accommodating from the time we booked the rental to the moment we checked out. The grounds around the condo and the pool area are a tropical paradise. The condo itself was very clean, comfortable and spacious. No shortage of towels, beach gear, coolers, sun shades, etc. The kitchen was well stocked. Extra touches of a Welcome Basket, toiletries, and some sunscreen were an added bonus. The patio was the perfect place for nightly sunsets. Highly recommend this rental and we hope to return some day!
We were very happy with the accommodations. The kitchen was well stocked and condo was nicely appointed. We loved watching the sunset on the porch or by the pool. Made our family vacation complete with great memories!
This was our 2nd visit to this unit - we have been 6 times total to Halii Kai - and love it. I wish we could tell you it's awful so you'll all stay away ( more time for us ) but that would just be mean. Truthfully this place has everything you need - kitchen supplies are well stocked and for activities there are beach towels,coolers, chairs, umbrellas, tennis rackets, bikes, golf clubs and so much more. The unit is tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The view of the sunset from the lanai is one of our favorite features. The owner, Lisa, is great to work with and very open to suggestions or questions. You wont' be disappointed with 9B.
