We really enjoyed our stay. The property is beautiful and the unit is comfortable and clean. John was very accessible and answered questions quickly. We would love to stay here again!
Our visit to this residence, in the Hali'i Kai community at the Waikoloa Beach Resort, was a pure joy from start to finish. We found the condominium itself even more impressive than the owner's listing suggested, and its conveniences and amenities even more lavish. And the owner himself was extraordinarily helpful and responsive, replying to even our slightest and silliest inquiries with an almost startling promptitude. I would not hesitate to describe the quality and comfort of the accommodations provided at this residence as clearly superior to those of a four-star luxury hotel, and I would most certainly and most eagerly visit here again.
We loved absolutely everything about this unit. We spent a week enjoying breakfast on the lanai and sunsets at the Ocean Club. And the condo is a perfect middle point for access to all parts of the island. Thanks so much for a wonderful stay!!
This condo has been amazing. There is everything you need to make it comfortable from the kitchen being stocked with pans and utensils to the washer and dryer after beach days. The beach club area is beautiful for morning and evening swims. We did not eat at the beach club to rate the food but the vibe was lovely, just watch out for the attendant at the pool. There is one lady the works there that was very rude, she will make you dump out even water if you try and bring it in the pool area. We went down to the club to grill some dinner one night at the bbq and she even yanked a glass bowl out on my daughters hand while saying glass wasn’t allowed. I understand the rule there just needed to be more class when enforcing the rules. She was very rude.
Other than our encounters with her it was truly fantastic. We would definitely stay here again.
This is a beautiful property. Excellent location in Hali’i Kai, a beautiful gated community with an amazing pool area, fitness center, and restaurant on the ocean. The unit was nice and clean and spacious for a 2 bedroom. May stay here again in the future if available and highly recommend to others.
Excellent location in our favorite spot on Big Island. Loved the snorkel gear! Truly they’ve thought of next to everything when it comes to Hawaii gear from the hydrogen peroxide to the boogie boards. Only item we thought we could use was a large beach shovel so we bought one and now you’re set!
Being able to reserve a dining spot at the restaurant easily for a larger group for the next night was fabulous.
Next to all the best beaches.
Fantastic property with spacious accommodations and lanai - fully equipped kitchen, comfy beds, everything you need for the beach. Great pool and restaurant/bar facilities with gym, putting course, pickle ball and tennis and basketball courts. Close to A Beach, the Hilton public lagoon space, King and Queen's marketplace etc. Hosts were super accommodating and fast to reply to our questions re. early and late check-in/check out.
This property was great and very flexible with checkout. Thank you. Family had a great time
The condo is lovely, spacious with great views and lots of light. Everything was perfect. We truly appreciated the owners’ care; the condo had everything we needed. Excellent location with easy access to great destinations for beaches, hiking, shopping. Highly recommended.
We rented John’s condo for 10 days as two couples travelling together. It was a wonderful place to stay and perfect for friends or families. The condo was clean and spacious and the location was great; close to all amenities and the ocean. A vehicle is definitely needed but the Ocean Club is only a 7 minute walk with a great restaurant and excellent bar. It is beautiful and a great place to be at sunset. So many extras with this condo…..beach chairs, boogie boards, beach towels, etc. John the owner was very communicative and so quick to respond with any questions we had. Highly recommend. 5 stars all around!
My daughter and i had a wonderful time at this home. It was perfectly as described and I loved that the 2nd bedroom was very large as well as the 2nd bathroom. Very comfortable setting in a beautiful resort. We also had a 4 month old and appreciated the pack-n-play that was provided. We took advantage of the beach chairs for great sunsets on the beach. In addition, we left some important baby items in the dishwasher which John so graciously mailed to my daughter in Tokyo! THANKS John
A perfect family condo! I can’t say enough amazing things about this place. One of the most unique neighborhoods and truly the perfect set up for a family of four. My husband and I and my mother-in-law and our almost 2 year old enjoyed walking to the ocean club at the end of the block every day. The staff at the ocean club + the food and the drinks were amazing! Everyone was so friendly and accommodating. The pool was perfect for a toddler with a waiting area. We will definitely be back! It might be helpful to note that a car rental is a must to get to the grocery store and to the beach. Great beach close by in front of the Marriott hotel with free access and great parking.
Wonderful time would recommend
Our week+ stay at this condo unit was top notch. We've stayed here once before and it really is a great property. This condo unit was fantastic - very comfortable and had all the beach supplies we needed. Love the pool and Ocean Club. Can't beat it.
We loved everything about staying here. The location is fabulous, the condo was clean and comfortable, and we throughly enjoyed going to the ocean club and meeting new friends😍 We will definitely be back!
This unit may be our favorite of the 3 properties we will have visited on our Hawaiian trip. The rate to rent this condo was outstanding for what you get. Currently we are at a larger “luxury” resort for about 4x the price on Kauai and I’m onot sure it’s worth it. This unit had everything we needed… snorkel gear, boogie boards, all kitchen stuff. Thank you John! It was a great adventure!!
We enjoyed everything about the stay, accommodation great, ocean club great, location great. I would definitely stay again! Mahalo
Great location. Such a peaceful property. Everything you could want in the kitchen. Comfy beds. We stayed with our 2 teenage boys and they loved it as well. Plenty of space for us. Beautiful balcony to eat breakfast and dinner. Thank you for a wonderful stay
Everything about the experience was first rate. Communication prior to the stay was excellent. Everything about the unit was as described. Would definitely recommend the Hali'i Kai location and nothing but positive feedback for the host and the unit.
Our family of five loved this condo. The home was well stocked with everything needed to make it a home away from
Home. We especially appreciated the abundance of snorkel gear, beach chairs and toys! The beach club/pool was a short walk away and a favorite spot for us to hang out and eat! John was attentive with all communication and providing helpful tips. We will return for sure!
Stayed here for 8 days/7 nights at the end of May '22. The communication process with the owner and access to the property was seamless. Owner responds quickly and sent us the access info early. The condo itself is within the coastal resort area of Waikoloa, where the Hilton snd Marriott resorts are, but it is a secluded, private community, which we liked. Condo is well-furnished, clean, and perfect for spending some quality family time after a long day of enjoying the beautiful island. The Ocean Club is the community's private club house, with full bar, restaurant, pools, spa, and workout room. And an amazing view of the ocean! Just know that you are NOT near a major town. If you want any food after 9pm, you're on your own. After the local market (at Queens Marketplace) closes, it's slim pickings on where you can get food because the market and most restaurants are closed. So stock up your condo with food. We loved our vacation and the condo was a great launchpoint for everything we did.
We had a wonderful stay with our two teenage boys. The pool and gym were close for them to go on their own. Walks around Waikaloa were beautiful and easy to do straight from home. We loved spending time at the pool watching the sunset. We rented bikes for the boys for the week from Big Island Motorcycle to get around Waikaloa. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We will return. :)
Our family of 4 had a great stay. The condo was clean, kitchen had all the needed items, and the location was ideal on the west side of Hawaii. Great location to explore the full west side of Hawaii - took various day trips up and down the west side, with all trips within about an hour from this condo. Also enjoyed the restaurants and stores within 5 minutes of the condo. Would love to stay here again when we visit Hawaii in the future.
Beautiful condo, grounds, and pickleball courts!! The owners are very kind and helpful! Most of all the ocean club was beyond expectation…. Right on the ocean front with breathtaking views and the most wonderful sunsets ever. We throughly enjoyed our stay!!!
After a COVID19 delay of over one year, we were finally able to meet up with friends at this VRBO. Although Waikoloa is a bit of a drive from Kona, there are lots of amenities in the area. The Hali’i Kai beach club, which overlooked the ocean,
had a nice pool, exercise room and a bar / restaurant. The 2 bed 2 bath unit was spacious and well appointed. Beds were very comfortable. The appliances were new and worked well. Large lanai didn’t have a grill but there were communal grills near by. Hali’i Kai is a beautiful resort community with impressive grounds. It is located close to beaches, hotels and shopping.
What a dream this place was! I came for a conference held next door at the hilton and it was an easy and beautiful 10 min walk! The house was well equipped with lots of beach gear! Only recommendation is some travel coffee mugs! Highly recommend this place and hope to come back some day!
My family enjoyed so much staying at this great. We’ll definitely come back when visiting BI next time. John has been very responsive and accommodating. Thank you.
Didn’t want to leave first off I can’t say enough about the owners of this property they were very gracious very good to communicate with and talk to that experience was awesome the property is just beautiful the pool location was great it is a little out of town but for me that was what I was looking for we don’t spend much time in town to be honest you don’t even have to leave the condo once you have all your groceries it’s that niceWe will definitely stay there again
All the reviews about this property were spot on. We arrived at 5pm and the apartment was lovely and clean and cool. We could not fault anything in the place apart from maybe the fact there is no broiler pan for grilling things. Beds were very comfortable and all the appliances in the kitchen and laundry top of the range and in good working order. There were some spices and other bits and pieces of kitchen necessities in the cupboards too. The Lanai was a lovely place to sit and relax. We would certainly come back again.
The property was perfect for our getaway. The condo was beautifully decorated with all of the amenities to make for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Unfortunately, the weather did not cooperate and it rained for four of the five days we were there but thankfully we loved the spacious condo and roof that extended far over the deck so that we could still enjoy sitting outside. The pool and bar/restaurant area which is a short 7 minute walk was a huge plus. There are two tennis courts by the unit and there are very good quality rackets and tennis balls provided. John does a great job with providing the "extras" to make it for a very comfortable and enjoyable stay. I highly recommend!
We had a great week in this condo, it is close to “A” bay, the King & Queens shops, Lava Lava restaurant and also not far from My favorite beach, Hapuna. We didn’t use the pool area because I have to be at the beach when in Hawaii, but it looked lovely. Would definitely recommend this condo.
This was just the kind of place we were looking for. My wife and I and our two kids (11 and 7) had a great time. Close to beaches, golf course, restaurants and stores as needed. We enjoyed watching sunset by the pool every night. It was a perfect home base for us during our stay. Made use of some of the beachgoing gear (boogieboards, snorkels, chairs) as well which was a huge help.
Very happy with our stay. Will book again if ever on the island.
We had an amazing stay at John & Dianna's property. The condo was spacious and fully stocked with all the essentials. The condo was a short 10 minute walk to the pool at the Ocean Club and a short drive to shops and restaurants. John & Dianna provided great information prior to our stay that made everything extremely easy once we arrived. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
The unit was very clean, comfortable and nicely decorated. Very quiet and the upper-story end unit provided a nice view of the property. Lots of beach gear, snorkels, etc.
The Ocean Club was very nice. Pool is suitable for young children. There is a small but well-equipped fitness center open to the sea breeze on three sides. Location is convenient to nearby shopping, restaurants and both to A-Bay and the Queen K Highway. A beautiful and restful spot!
Outstanding Condo home on the pristine Hali'i Kai grounds with lovely Hawaiian decor, superb amenities, and a great Club house that overlooks the Pacific offering pupu's & bevs, a fitness hale, and pool. John is a most gracious host and responds with lightning speed to inquiries/communications. Mahalo, John and Dianna!!
The condo was very clean and spacious. The description accurately described the condo and amenities. The pool had great views of the ocean and the sunsets were amazing which we enjoyed every night. We would definitely recommend this condo and would rent it again if we come back to the Big Island.
Our family had a fantastic stay at this property! It was even better than we expected from the pictures. The location is great and near so many fun beaches. The pool area was phenomenal for families as it isn't deeper than 4 feet, which made relaxing by the pool even easier. The owner always responded quickly and even accommodated an early check-in when I asked the day of. I would highly recommend staying here!
We were looking for a place where we can WFH - Work from Hawaii and John's condo was perfect for us. The WIFI was fast enough for three of us to be on Teams calls throughout the day and there were enough places in the fairly large condo for us to somehow manage to seclude ourselves and work. The only thing we missed from home were our work tables and computer chairs but it was still manageable. The condo itself and the community is just perfect for a relaxing laid back time - quiet, pretty and well maintained. The condo has everything and more you would need for a beach holiday including snorkelling gear with fins. We enjoyed our daily morning and sunset evening walks around the water front. This place is totally worth the price and John is super responsive and flexible host.
