Welcome to Paradise! From the moment you walk in you see amazing ocean, golf course and volcano views. This gorgeous 3 bedroom, air-conditioned, corner unit is situated in one of the best locations within the Hali'i Kai Resort. Beautifully decorated and well-appointed with elegant tropical style furnishings, upscale appliances and several amenities allow for an unforgettable experience.

Located 18 miles north of the Kona International Airport on the sun-drenched Kohala Coast, Hali'i Kai (meaning "spreading out to the sea") was recently named the No. 1 resort on the Big Island by Expedia. One of the newest and nicest gated communities in the world-famous Waikoloa Beach Resort, Hali'i Kai boasts one of the best kept secret, the only oceanfront pool, fitness center, lounge and cafe center of any complex on the Big Island. With so many amenities at Hali'i Kai, you may never need to leave the property, which stretches from the greens of the golf course to the lava rock shoreline of the ocean. You can start your morning with an invigorating workout at the poolside Exercise Cabana, then admire the ocean view over a cup of Kona coffee at the private Ocean Club cafe. Spend the afternoon working on your serve at the tennis court, or shooting baskets. Or head over to the lush Coconut Grove for a BBQ picnic with friends or a pleasant nap in a hammock.

This recently purchased and re-designed corner unit comprises 1,400 feet of indoor living space, plus an additional covered alfresco lanai with a dining table for 6 and a gas BBQ grill surrounded by exotic tropical gardens and unobstructed ocean views. Enjoy watching a round of golf off the signature 7th hole of the championship Robert Trent Jones, Jr designed Beach course as you relax enjoying the feel of tropical breeze and swaying palm trees on your private lanai.

Inside, stretch out and relax in our professionally decorated living area with a large 66' screen LCD TV/DVD, I-pod docking station, complimentary wireless internet and long distance calling. Enjoy a quick bite on the 3 bar stools at the granite kitchen counter or at the 6pp dining table. Test your gourmet chef skills in the fully equipped state-of-the-art kitchen with stainless-steel appliances and African mahogany cabinets.

At day's end, luxuriate in the 3 spaciously designed bedrooms of this ground level corner unit property which accommodates 6 and includes a king primary suite with views of the ocean, golf course and volcano's and a en-suite bathroom with dual sinks and separate tub and shower as well as a walk-in-closet. The additional 2 bedrooms offer 1 queen bedroom and 1 king bedroom which can also be converted into 2 twin beds allowing comfort for 3 couples or a family retreat. Both bedrooms share another full bathroom with tub-shower combo. Each bedroom is also provided with 37' flat screen LCD TV's.

Before heading to the beach or the pool, wash your suits from yesterday in the separate laundry room right in the unit with a full size washer/dryer. When it's time to check out the rest of the island, walk a few steps to your private designated parking space. We provide beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, a beach umbrella and cooler for your use.

The Ocean Club, an oceanfront clubhouse with 180-degree views of the Pacific Ocean, features a large black bottom lagoon-style, multi-level swimming pool with a soothing waterfall and a heated lava rock spa with a sandy bottom. There is also a poolside bar and grill, and outdoor covered lounge area along with a do-it-yourself BBQ area. And you'll almost forget you're working out while watching TV or gazing out at the azure blue sea while the waves crash on lava rock at the state-of-the-art Exercise Cabana. During the migrating humpback whale season (December-April), you will enjoy a front row seat as these magnificent mammals hug the coastline offering a perfect viewing location. With 340 sunny days a year and less than 10 inches of annual rainfall this is the place to ultimately relax. There is a $25/daily fee the resort charges for your entire groups use of the Ocean Club.

Guests even receive King's Club Gold Membership Benefits at Waikoloa Resort, including up to 70% off regular rates. Rent golf clubs for $25 and play the King's Course for $50 or the Beach Course for $75, with no tee time restrictions.

A seaside trail runs from the Ocean Club to the magnificent Hilton Waikoloa Resort offering an easy 5 minute walking access to worldly restaurants, marvelous artwork, the opportunity to swim with dolphins and either a monorail or teak boat will assist you in viewing this incredible expansive property.
It will be hard to choose between six spectacular 18-hole golf courses in a 7 mile radius. If relaxation is more your style, visit the six world-class spas that offer a variety of exotic treatments, including body wraps, healing stone massages, and Hawaiian lomi lomi. For a little culture, attend a luau, hike the King's Trail to view ancient Hawaiian petroglyphs, take in a sunset catamaran sail, snorkel, swim with dolphins, shop at the world-class Kings' and Queens' Shops, and spend the evening sampling the best in island cuisine.

The property was near the pool and perfect for watching sunsets from the back porch. We have stayed at this property before and love enjoying time at the pool, the outside exercise room, and great whale watching.

Perfect place for a family gathering of all ages. We all loved the condo and the Ocean Club. Only 20min from the best snorkeling/swimming beach! Victoria was very helpful before, during and after the trip. Thank you!

So nice to rent someplace and have it actually look exactly like the pictures. This is a very comfortable and well appointed condo. We did have only one little issue which kept coming and going so it never seemed necessary to have someone come look but the hot water in the master shower had a mind of its own. The property manager was very responsive and I know would have had it taken care of early on but it was so sketchy that typically I was the only one who never got the hot water. It would be coming out of the sink in the master but never out of the shower for me. The clubhouse and pool with the restaurant right there is such a great convenience to have in a condominium setting. And everyone at the pool and restaurant was very nice. Only suggestion for that area would be that they get some umbrellas to provide shade in the pool area. A suggestion would also be to get a fan on the patio of the condominium unit. Definitely hope to stay there again.

We rented two condos in Hali’i Kai. This is our second time staying in this complex. We love the location, the views and the pool and restaurant. Not as hustle and bustle as your typical hotel stay. Victoria was very responsive and helpful throughout our stay, providing recommendations and even dropping off a new coffee maker when the current one gave up. Can’t wait to get back to the island!

The unit was clean and well stocked. The unit is in a great location near the pool and fitness center. The management company was very responsive to our needs. I would recommend!

Unit is very nice and comfortable. Building blocks some of the ocean view from the lanai, but otherwise very nice.

My family had a great week staying at this condo at Hali'i Kai. We enjoyed the view from the lanai and the table and chairs were perfect for the five of us. Also loved how close this condominium is to the resort pool and spa. The three bedrooms were enough for the five in our family, and the condo seemed spacious for everyone. Good communication with the property management company also.

Six family members (teens through seniors) stayed here 6 nights and found it to be very comfortable & spacious. The kitchen was well equipped; the lanai provided a wonderful space for morning coffee; the club house restaurant was surprisingly good; our teens enjoyed spending time at the pool reading; and morning walks along the coast were beautiful. If we could change one thing, it would be nice to have a beach within walking distance but that is minor. This was a wonderful place to stay!

This is a great place in a very central location, close to Hapuna and Waimea, 30 minutes away from Kona. Very quiet and great to relax. It has everything you need to rest. Great kitchen, the outdoor grill could be better, great bedrooms and one minute away from a trail that borders the ocean. We had many adventures, swimming with dolphins, turtles, snorkeling, visiting volcanos, ziplining, sunset in Mauna Kea, days at the beach, a lot of memories to share with the kids for a lifetime.

We enjoyed our stay immensely. The unit was beautiful, and the location was great (right next to the clubhouse). The only thing that didn't work was the BBQ, but that didn't hinder our trip or experience.

Stayed here with my family of 5 and loved staying on the property. It was just steps away from the ocean and the pool. The pool is the perfect spot to watch the sunset and had great food too! There is a rocky hiking trail right along the coast that is a little more than a mile hike to a beach. Sitting on the lanai each morning was perfect. Loved the fact that this was a ground floor unit. The house is exactly as described and Victoria was great to work with.

Everything was great. Loved the being on the first floor and in the building next to the private club. Can’t beat the views morning - sunset.
