Our extended family goes to Big Island every year for last two weeks of the year. We rent 2-3 units at the Hali I Kai each year since 2008. South Kohala doesn’t play pricing games and is transparent about charges. The unit is fully stocked with everything you need (not food or alcohol). Second year we have used them and it’s been the best experience among all the past agencies
Beautiful condo. Walking distance to pool, restaurant and ocean. Queen shops close by.
My girlfriends and I had an amazing stay! Unit is exactly as listed - spacious bedrooms and primary bedroom/bathroom exceeded my resort expectations for this girls trip. Kitchen is fully stocked and we felt they went the extra mile by leaving us some cleaning supplies and laundry detergent to use at our leisure and not have to replace - something a lot of places don’t do for you. Sitting out on the lanai every day listening to nature was incredible. It was the relaxing trip we needed. We had birds coming right up to us on the table just saying hello! And the best part… you guys… there were turkeys on the property that would greet us everyday! Just a little friendly hello and then moving on. Straight out of Snow White! Property was minutes from some of the best beaches in America (not just my opinion, Google it). Management always responded very promptly, great communication. I’ve seen some reviews mentioning the thermostat but to be honest it was never an issue for us. As women over 40, we are very much into our a/c especially overnight. There are clear instructions posted literally right next to the thermostat and if you still have questions, I’m positive management will respond right away and do whatever they can to make your stay the best possible. They certainly did for us. I would highly recommend staying here and we would definitely stay here again.
Great location, and nicely appointed condo. Just as pictured. Worked out great for 4 adults but would work well for families with children.
Beautiful property. Walking distance to the pool and clubhouse. Easy check in and prompt responses from the management. We would definitely stay there again!
Hali’I Kai is such a wonderful property. The pool overlooks the ocean—we saw whales and truly the best sunsets—and the restaurant at the pool had excellent drinks, apps, and main courses! How lucky to be able to avoid the crowds of the Lava Lava Club for a sunset dinner!!!
Building 19 is one minute (walking) from the tennis and basketball courts, and about 5-8 minutes (walking) from the pool and restaurant.
—The bedrooms and living room were roomy and very clean. Perfect for our family of 5.
—The laundry room was big and clean!
—We absolutely loved it there. We hope to return and we would stay in this unit specifically because it was so clean and updated.
—Note that the pool is 3-4 feet deep, so no diving/jumping, and you have to drive or hike for beach access. (We loved the 20 minute lava trail to the black sand beach with great snorkeling, with the trailhead right behind the pool.)
Great property, clean and spacious
My family had a great time on our vacation. The condo was very clean and comfortable and we were especially pleased with the well stocked kitchen, beach chairs, boogie board and snorkeling equipment. The acoustic guitar was a nice surprise for our son who likes to play. The condo complex had everything you could want - pool, restaurant/bar, workout facilities, gas grills and a number of great beaches a short distance away. We would stay here again!
We love the place, lots of great amenities, including Beach stuff, chairs, cooler, boogie board, sand toys. The pool is fantastic, you can watch the whales go by, the hot tub with the gravel bottom is fantastic. The Nest thermostat setting is set to only go to 74, with the ceiling fans it's pretty nice, I reached out to the owner and he dropped it to 72 which is more my liking. He was great and quick to respond. This is our second time staying at this condominium complex, we love it here! We also played some pickleball and tennis here at the condo tennis court.
This is a nice condo in a great location, located by restaurants, shops, and grocery stores. The ocean view from the pool is spectacular and the sunsets were amazing to watch from the pool area. My only complaint is that the owner has the temp set to be 74 during the day and 78 at night. It was SO hot at night and very uncomfortable. You can lower the temp to 74 but it goes back up to 78 while you sleep. I would not rent this condo again because of it, both of us were uncomfortable.
