Janelle was available and lovely for any questions we had. The condo was perfect for us. Know that the pool doesn't allow any outside beverages including water. We went to Costco upon landing and mistakenly to the grocery store in kings shops. It may be worth packing a few kitchen essentials so you don't have to overpay for them.
Really enjoyed our time there. The access to the BBQ in the common area behind the condo was nice with the hammocks.
The condo is great and we loved the complex and pool club, it could not be better. We will definitely return. Everything is even better than expected. Thank you Janelle!
The condo was very comfortable for me, my wife and 3 kids. We are glad it had beds for everyone. The beds are comfortable, but since they are memory foam, they tend to be a bit hot. The condo was very clean, appropriately stocked and nicely decorated. The only suggestion I would give is to put a night light in the master bath. With no window, you can't see anything at night unless you turn the light on. The internet worked great, as I had to work some of the time there. Close to the best beaches and snorkeling only 15 minutes away.
The home was exactly as pictured, but so much better in person. The rooms are very spacious and the beds are comfortable. It was the perfect spot for my family of 4.
This was our first VRBO experience and my family and I loved staying there. Would definitely book it again.
Janelle was a pleasure to work with. She reached out to me a few weeks before our stay to give some details about the house and she answered every question I had.
A comfortable place with all necessary amenities for a great time!
We had the best stay at this condo. It was very easy from the first day to the last. Our host Janelle was so friendly and we had easy quick communication. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed. We’ve stayed at Halii Kai more than 10x and this was one of our favorite condos that we would love to return to. Thank you!
The home was in the center of everything. The restaurant on the property was exceptional with the food and service. I will go back for the Ti Chicken on flatbread. The accommodations were great and the home was decorated beautifully. The owners were available by phone if needed. Absolute great place.
We had an AMAZING time at this condo and on the Big Island! Janelle was very helpful, the condo was very nice, clean and well equipped! The community was beautiful and a great location for everything! We would stay here again anytime!
Better than advertised, amazing grounds and beach club.
We loved our time at the condo! It was a bit tricky to locate, but the host was very helpful and responsive! This was the perfect place for a family with adult children! My only regret is not staying longer!
We had an amazing 16 nights in March 2023. The condo was great and the Hali’i Kai grounds were so beautiful. We loved the lanai and watching all the birds and the geckos everyday. We will 100% be back as soon as we can.
Janelle responded immediately when we had an issue with the fridge ice machine and were able to fix it ourselves right away.
Very well appointed kitchen with lots of supplies. Extras for beach - chairs, towels, toys, etc. - also included. Thank you for NOT having a memory foam mattress in the master. They are not suitable for hot climates, yet lots of rentals and hotels seem to have them.
Loved our time here
We had a wonderful time at the resort. The condo was exactly as advertised. We had tons or room to stretch out. The local clubhouse is a great area to hang out, plus the food and drinks were great as well! We watched whales and spinning dolphins right from the clubhouse; what an experience! We will definitely be back.
Beautiful condo. Loved the photos that decorated the unit. Deluxe master suite. Very comfortable. Great location. Amazing view from the pool.
Quiet, lovely grounds and pool with an excellent restaurant on site with scheduled live entertainment. Very enjoyable!
Our family had the privilege of staying at this beautiful, well maintained condo located in the equally beautiful resort of HaliI Kai. We have nothing but wonderful memories. We would highly recommend renting this property and would not hesitate to return in the future. The owners were very nice and accommodating especially when we had to modify our dates due to a unexpected airline schedule change. If you are looking for a peaceful holiday with the comforts of home you need to look no further!
We stayed for a week and enjoyed it very much. The condo is spacious. Convenient location. Beach chairs, tennis racquets, basketball and beach towels made for easy recreation. Definitely would stay here again and recommend to others.
The property has everything you need for a comfortable stay. The Ocean Club has a good restaurant, work-out area, and pool. It is a wonderful place from which to view the sunset.
We have stayed in this particular condo 3 times! We keep coming back because the condo is comfortable, large, (feels like 2 separate spaces) and has what one would need for a great stay on the Big Island. The owner is very responsive to needs or concerns. The complex has a pool, spa, gym and restaurant within walking distance.
We love our time here and would definitely like to return.
The property was amazingly quiet and very relaxing. The pool and dining were just a short walk from the condo. The staff at the club was fantastic and made our stay even more special. I would certainly rent here again.
Using VRBO is very easy, found property very quickly and got it reserved in about 15 min
Halii Kai is beautiful, and the restaurant at the pool has a great view and excellent food & service. Our condo was roomy and pleasant. I highly recommend a stay at the Halii Kai.
The highest praise we can give this property is that we will certainly try to stay here again next time we head to the Big Island. The complex itself is better than any of the other places we've stayed in Waikoloa in more than a dozen trips, and this outstanding unit was the cherry on the sundae. Handsome decor, all the amenities you'd want and a host that was wonderful to work with. As good a nesting place as you'll find to use as a base for this end of the Big Island.
Can't wait to return! What a wonderful time my family and I had at this property. We arrived a little early prior to check in time and I reached out to Janelle and she told us it was okay that we could go in. What a beautiful condo! We were all comfortable and the unit is equipped with everything one could possibly need. A well stocked kitchen was what did it for me. I felt we were at home away from our home. Our host was superb and communication was great. I brought one thing to her attention and Janelle was very appreciative as she wasn't aware of it and took care of it immediately. She and I spoke on the phone and it was like we knew each other for some time. The location of the unit is superb inside of a gated community which allowed our 15 year old to ride around on an electric bike for hours without us worrying. The property on a whole is beautiful and close to everything like the grocery stores, beaches, trails etc. We stayed for 9 nights and my husband said we should have been there for 2 weeks. Having somewhere comfortable to lay your head plays a big part in that. Thanks Janelle for everything! We plan on coming back! For those of you looking for somewhere to stay on the Big Island, look no more for Janelle's place is it!
This is a wonderful condo in a great community. Everything was exactly as described. The pool was very relaxing. A nice workout facility though the nearby path made morning walks very enjoyable.
Would definitely stay here again
The property was very comfortable and offered many amenities including a washer and dryer, beautiful balcony, plenty of room and comfortable beds. We enjoyed taking walks on the property everyday and on the surrounding resort. The pool was a fantastic area to relax. We would definitely rent this property again!
We had a wonderful time in this condo and found it to exceed all of our needs! The condo is beautiful, well-appointed, and spacious, with lots of room for the 4 of us. It has all the amenities we needed to have a beautiful trip to the Big Island. Our hosts were terrific and thought of every detail to make our stay wonderful - their communication was timely and we truly felt it was a home away from home for us. Thank you so much for everything!
Our young family of 5 had an amazing time here! Great location conveniently located near many restaurants and shops, yet very quiet and comfortable. The highlight for our young kids was the pool! We could not get them out at times. Sunset views from the pool are as good as it gets on the big island! The condo was very clean and well maintained and included great beach gear for the family. We would definitely stay here again.
We enjoyed our stay at your property. The grounds and unit are very comfortable and relaxing!
This property was our absolute favorite VRBO of all time. Clean, lots of room, and close to everything! I am hoping to make us a yearly trip for us and highly recommend it to anyone looking for the absolute best place to stay on the big island.
Very spacious, quiet. Had a lot a beach stuff.
Overall the unit was very beautiful, there wasn’t any soap in the unit for the showers and the AC unit broke down but we figured out how to deice it and get it back and run again. Thank tou
great place to stay. close to shopping and markets. had a restaurant and bar at the location which made things easy
We loved the Hali i Kai property! Our condo was exactly as described. Well appointed with comfortable furnishings, fast internet, well-equipped kitchen, laundry, and beach supplies. Location is perfect, near the Queens and Kings marketplace. Our first time at Hali i Kai and we loved it! Ideally located right on the beach. Pool is just right, super friendly staff and delicious food. The poke salad! Can’t wait to come back! Aloha!
Thanks for an awesome stay!
My family had a great time, the condo is not only a great location but has the amenities you need to enjoy your vacation. We will definitely be back.
This place was wonderful and had all the amenities. Would definitely stay again. Our family had a great time.
Could not have asked for better home to stay in. Big island is a very special place to me and these accommodations are the perfect jumping off point to enjoy big island. Beautiful home.
Very nice condo in a gorgeous community. We had a couple minor issues and property owners were very responsive in addressing things. Great place would stay there again!
The Hali’i Kai complex is beautiful and meticulously manicured. The condo was clean and well laid out. The two bedrooms were situated at opposite ends of the condo, so there was privacy for each bedroom.The second bedroom has a bathroom right outside the bedroom door but still out of sight from the living area, so even though the bathroom was not accessed from the second bedroom, it was still close to the bedroom door and somewhat private. The pool and the bar are right on the water and a great place to watch the sunset! My only disappointment was that I thought we would have at least a small view of the ocean, but you could not see the ocean from our unit. There was a 5+ minute walk to the pool and bar area. We would definitely stay here again!
Had a few hiccups that were quickly addressed by the owner. The condo is spacious and lovely. The resort area is wonderful. The bar/pool area is everything the pictures show.
Wholeheartedly endorse this location and property. Morning to evening was very peaceful. The Ocean side pool was so relaxing with ideal sunset viewing. Waikaloa is perfect location to see most of the island. We were even able to get to Volcano and back during daylight hours. Condo is really spacious with all the necessities. Beds are comfortable and lanai was perfect setting for mornings and evenings. Can't wait to come back!
We had the most wonderful stay here on the Big Island. The location of the rental was perfect for day trips all over the Island as well as chill days at the pool. We can not say enough good things about this property!!
Everything was so easy from the booking, changes we had to make in dates, arrival, and even accommodating a flight cancellation. Janelle was amazing to work with and always made us feel that our enjoyment of our vacation was the priority. Thank you so much we really appreciated everything!
As for the property it is even better than the pictures show. Clean and fresh in a safe and popular area. We felt at home the minute we walked in! Lots of extras in this place including the 'toy' closet with beach chairs, towels, toys and my sons favourite the basketballs! So much to do within the community as well as near lots of shops and restaurants. Very convenient and wonderful property for walks and sunsets.
The food and drinks at the pool bar were delicious and convenient. Be careful of the Mahi Tai's they can sneak up on you
We are a family of 5 (older teens) and had lots of space to spread out and relax either on the balcony, living room, kitchen or rooms. Having 2 full bathrooms was a pleasure as well with all of us!
Easy check in and out.
We would definitely come back to this property and highly recommend this as a place you will want to stay at over and over again.
The only problem is that it is such a great place that it gets really booked up fast so if you are looking and its available I would book it right away!! You wont regret it
We had a great stay at this property. It's exactly as described, in a great neighborhood and made a perfect base camp for our stay. Everything was neat and clean, and we enjoyed access to the pool for sunsets in the evenings along with excellent food and drinks at the restaurant on the property. Communication was excellent and made for a very memorable trip!
What a beautiful, luxury property! Not only did we enjoy everything about the property, but I can't say enough about the wonderful host, Janelle. During a busy holiday, she was available and helped answer a couple of questions about the use of the property with kindness and enthusiasm. We would most definitely stay here again. So glad we chose this rather than the Hilton property. Loved the pool, cocktails and offerings available. Close to most things with very easy access to others. Thank you or should I say Mahalo Janelle...
Communication was great. The condo was very nice, comfortable and had everything we needed.
The owner was very organized, friendly and accommodating. My family really enjoyed our stay.
We stayed at this property in May and we’re very impressed with the accommodations. We have stayed in a number of rentals on the Big Island and this one is the best by far! We were very fortunate to find it available at the time we wanted to return to the Big Island. We brought my sister and the set up of the condo was perfect and she loved it there. This unit has everything you need to feel comfortable. We love the artwork on the walls that really give you the feel of this Island. We hope to stay there again in the future.
The property was great and the owner was very accessible to us when we called her with questions.
What a beautiful home! Spacious and clean. Filled with Volcano themed high definition photos. Three large televisions. Well stocked kitchen. My family enjoyed the basketball court, oceanside pool and restaurant that is very unique and only for guests. I highly recommend this vacation home and will return.
The resort was absolutely beautiful! The condo we stayed in was nice and clean. But prepare for food or you will pay through the nose on the premises. We used two of the boogie boards but they were all broken in half and needed to be replaced. The beach was pristine and there was a beautiful pool and places to shop and wander through. If we were just staying there and not exploring the island, it would have been incredibly relaxing.
Ocean front pool/fitness center was the main attraction along with tennis/basketball court and putting greens.
Immaculately clean and well furnished. Loved Hali’i Kai location. Beautiful grounds. Little far to walk to the pool/clubhouse but we never had issue finding parking there. Pool and club food was fantastic. Close to excellent beaches. 35 min to town.
Nice location, nice bar/restaurant and pool. Checkin was late morning - the day after - they open late close early and the pool/Restsurant area was strict, since we didn’t have a keycard the night before, nor a car we went to bed hungry. The place was quiet, spacious but lots of bugs in the second bath and ants all over the kitchen dispite the numerous ant-motels. We come back for business ever few weeks. But not here.
Overall great thank experience. Lots of room and very quiet. Lots of pots, utensils, paper products, etc for cooking. Pool is about a block and a half. Walkable but we drove. Hilton is within walking distance as well as a black sand beach.
SoCal family of 5 just finished our 1 week Big Island vacation in this condo and had an amazing time. You definitely want a rental car on the big island to explore all the great beaches and other areas since they're spread out, and this Waikoloa location was a perfect home base. Our favorite beaches were within a 20 min drive (Kua Bay and 49 Black Sands) and also FoodLand and Island Gourmet Markets were nearby for groceries. We also did a few 1hr+ drives (Volcanoes NP and Punalu'u, Two Step, Manta ray night snorkel) and flew out of Hilo on our last day, and after seeing various other parts of the island I was definitely happy we stayed in Waikoloa (seemed to have the cleanest and safest "neighborhood" feel, great for families). Also the condo felt like our "own place" vs. staying at one of the major resorts nearby and feeling like we were in a hotel room. We took advantage of the condo's included towels, beach chairs and umbrella during our beach outings, and the kitchen was very well appointed (we cooked our own meals many of the days). The resort pool was great for evening swims / sunset-viewing after a long day exploring the island, and even the small weight room was nice for a quick workout with ocean views. We did have to be careful about not leaving any food out on the kitchen counters or the small ants would find them, but it wasn't much of an issue. Thankfully there were no other insect or critter issues that I've read about from other Hawaii visitor reviews (at other properties). The A/C was great to have during our summer stay (although the thermostat control was a little fiddly) and with all the ceiling fans we were never too hot. In all the condo was spacious and clean and decorated very professionally with a great Hawaiian vibe. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this property or to stay again in the future. Oh, also I need to give a shout out to the host for excellent communication - I emailed a couple questions through VRBO during the stay and received a response within minutes each time!
The condo was perfect for our family of 5 that included 2 teens and a toddler. The location was awesome for touring the island! Make sure to buy your food at Foodland in the next neighborhood since lots of places close early or have long waits. We had lots of space to relax after a day of touring and they even provided beach gear! Overall the condo had all the amenities we needed, but the floors were dirtier than they seemed even though we took our shoes off. We would definitely stay here again!
This condo is beautifully decorated with local artwork. Clean, has basic necessities for cooking.
Has a closet stocked with items for beach including a beach chair and camp chairs, boogie boards, one beach umbrella, beach toys.
Nice bedrooms and bathrooms. Loved sitting out on back patio in mornings and evenings.
We loved our stay at this home! It is a well appointed place with everything you could need. We especially enjoyed the closet full of beach and pool toys. The real draw of this home is the awesome pool/clubhouse area- the sunset views were great and the clubhouse food was fantastic as well- it made for a wonderful way to end our day. The clubhouse is quite a ways from the condo however- we ended up having to drive to it each time and I didn't think it was super clear in the listing that it was about a 1/2 mile away and parking is tight at the clubhouse. Besides that, it was an amazing place and stay!
The complex itself is very well kept and quiet. The condo is on the second floor and you feel like you are NOT in a multi-unit building. The unit has everything you need for a day trip to the beach which is a short drive from towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, etc. The unit itself is very comfortable with whatever you need to feel at home. The Ocean Club which is located on the property is a great place to relax and watch the sunset. The restaurant has a limited menu, but the food is really good. My husband and I had an amazing time and hope to stay in this unit I the future.
The owners responded to questions before our stay promptly. It’s very clean. Love the gated community and area. Perfect for first time to Hawaii.
Close to multiple beaches. And a short drive to Kona area. And 2 hour to volcano and south point.
The condo was beautifully decorated making us feel like it was our own. The kitchen was well equipped. Located in the fabulous Waikoloa Resort made this an ideal location. The resort property pool and bar area looked over the ocean, so we enjoyed many beautiful sunsets front the property. The gym provided a great ocean view allowing us time to workout during our vacation. We will return.
