We love the facility and the condo. Waikoloa is a great base to explore Big Island. The host David is easy to communicate with and always helps you out.
We cannot wait to return!
The location was great! Owner, David was helpful and easy to communicate with. All was good!!
Might have been nice to have blackout blinds/curtains in master bedroom. Only suggestion. Was so fun to stay close to where our daughter owns a place
We stayed at David & Jane’s property for a total of 8 nights, there were 4 of us and the rental had everything we needed, it was well stocked and in a beautiful, central location. The property is even prettier in person. David was a great host, we had a bit of trouble with the electronic lock but he was quick to come up with a solution and very responsive. We can’t wait to stay here again when we visit Waikoloa next time :)
Well kept and convenient to all amenities. This is the best place to stay if you are heading to Kona. only slight issue with front door electronic lock but was easily sorted out.
The property is in a great location to visit every part of the island. Communication with David was easy and he gave us some good advice that helped us maximize our short stay. The layout was great for our group. Everything was clean and the lanai made for a great place to plan our excursions or just to unwind. We would definitely stay here again, hopefully for a longer stay.
Very spacious, well equipped and well maintained property with easy access to pool and beaches, restaurants and shops. Property managers were wonderful to deal with.
We’ve stayed in this property before and loved the location to everything. Walkable to shops, golf, grocery store, and the ocean.
It was bound to happen, after 13 years of using VRBO we finally had a less than stellar experience.
Our poor experience and this review is limited to the cleanliness of the property and owner feedback. In hindsight we wish we had taken photographs and reached out to the owner at the beginning of the stay, which we admittedly did not preferring to get on with enjoying our annual Hawaii vacation. Lesson Learned.
There was leftover food in two different pantry cabinets and in the refrigerator. The coffee carafe had burned coffee on the bottom, which we were able to clean relatively easily.
The transition strip from the entryway into the living room, was literally scotch taped to the floor to keep it in place. The furniture on the lanai had all the weathering of aged teak but none of the charm. It absolutely needs a cleaning and a coating of teal oil. The throw rug between the living room and the lanai was torn and had several loops pulled up from the pile.
The master bedroom had mold and mildew in and around the ceiling vent, wondering what can I bring a T-shirt was found under the bed, and an old laptop and pair of boots were found left in a dresser drawer
The master shower glass doors were clouded with hard water scaling, and the grout and tile was discolored and aged.
Again, we did not bring this to the attention, fourth floor of the owner upon check-in, as we perceive them to be minor, and not a hygienic concern.
After checking out, the owner reached out via text to inquire about the condition of the shower. And we told him we left the condo in equal or better condition to have you checked it.
he respectfully disagreed stating his opinion that my wife’s hair coloring had run and discolored the tile and grout. I pointed out that her coloring was not new, and it did not run, evidenced by the fact that the majority of the discoloring was grout only not on the tile and not on the glass, and there was no discoloring on any of the linens or towels.
While the owner disputed the leftover food claim, even after we itemized some of the specific items, he did not dispute any of the other items we noted. I said the condo had every indication of having had a “quick turn “with substandard cleaning and set up for the next guest.
He declined that explanation. We were unable to come to an agreement regarding the condition of the condo and I respectfully and then communication.
This property is immaculate and in what we think is the most desirable area of the big island! The entire resort grounds are spectacular and all the conveniences are within walkable distance. Truly a dream vacation!!
We stayed at this delightful condo for four days - we found it to be clean and well equipped so that we were able to cook (if we wanted to) and walk to many restaurants and shops as the location was so close to the queens/kings shops.
Great location and lovely, bright, morning sunshine, ground level, deck. High quality cookware. Close to BBQ area and pool. Hosts wonderful to communicate with. Highly recommended.
Everything we needed. The kitchen was very well appointed which is important to us because we like to cook in. The location was super convenient to shopping and petroglyphs and close to beaches. Great communication with host, easy check in. Would stay here again.
Everything as advertised, clean, kitchen had everything we needed. beach chairs came in handy. Great home base for galivanting around the island.... Have usually vrbo'd in Wailea on Maui many times but wanted to try the big island this time around. loved it. Thanks again Dave
We were excited to stay in Waikoloa. We don't golf, but we do like to shop and go to the beach. This house was clean and well kept. Great kitchen to prepare your own gourmet meals that is open to the living room. Huge Refrigerator/Freezer, Very comfortable bed. You can walk to eat, shop, or sit in a poolside lounge of a resort. And don't for get breakfast on the patio!
This condo has it all, it’s super quiet and peaceful. It’s extremely convenient as it’s close to shopping areas if you need anything for your stay, as well as very close to beaches! David was super responsive and very very accommodating to me and my wife's needs. I highly recommend this condo to anyone looking to have a great time on the big island!
It was a great stay. The home is located on a beautiful golf course. We got to watch sunrise everyday from the porch!
David and Jane are such wonderful hosts! They were attentive to our questions and communicated in a very timely manner!
Check-in was seamless, unlike other condos that we have stayed in before. David shared detailed information prior to our arrival, which was very helpful. Condo is in a convenient location and very well-stocked! We wold definitely love to stay there again in the near future!
We had very responsive owners. Centrally located in the complex. Ground floor which was great for older family members. And close by parking. A very pleasant stay. Thank you.
We had a wonderful stay here. The condo had everything we needed and more. We appreciated the extra amenities, like coffee, condiments, beach equipment and beach towels. We would def stay here again.

Property had everything you need. Quiet location and easy to get to shops. Love the Lava Lava Club. Enjoyed golfing on the Fairway Golf course.
The only thing was selection of pillows (need more feather/down pillows).
Thanks David and Jane.
Good place. To stay.
The unit was clean, spacious and comfortable. It was located conveniently near shopping and a beach. The owners were communicative and helpful. Would definitely recommend.
This condo was a great location to travel to other parts of the island. It was stocked with items for the beach, which was very helpful.
Great location, near things to do and food. Kitchen was well equipped to cook at home. Exploring the island was great using David and Jane’s place as our home base - free parking, beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkeling equipment, cooler bags and ice packs, beach bag, towels - essentials we used pretty much every day. So much more to explore we hope to visit again soon and would definitely stay here again. Mahalo!
This condo is the perfect location for everything! The owner was very communicative and friendly. Condo has everything you will need for your stay! Will stay again!
This is the perfect place for us. It is clean, beautifully decorated, conveniently located and the host is very accommodating. Love this condo!
Enjoyed breakfast on patio while sun was rising. Enjoyed watching nature. Shops, restaurants, and attractions walkable from unit. Had a relaxing time.
Lovely property! Beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen had everything we needed. The games and water toys were a major plus. Highly recommend this condominium!
We really enjoyed our stay. It was great having 2 bedrooms where we could put our young daughter down to bed and enjoy some quiet evening time to ourselves. The cooler and beach chairs available to use were an extra plus. Would definitely book again
This condo is a great option for a beach stay. The kitchen had everything we needed, they provided all the beach necessities (2 snorkel sets, beach towels, chairs, coolers, even a beach bag!), and the location was perfect for quick beach access. It was also right next to the petroglyphs! David was very responsive and helpful.
David was a great host. Easy to communicate with. The place was wonderful, clean and nicely accommodated. We love the area and want to come back again.
Overall, we had a great 2 week stay at this property. The hospitality was great and the unit was clean and well stocked with all the basic items you'll need, including beach gear that we leveraged heavily (chairs, umbrella, cooler, snorkeling equipment). It has very easy access being on the ground floor with a parking spot just a few steps out the front door. A short distance further is the community gym and pool which is also convenient.
We worked remotely for most of the time and found it manageable for 2 of us to be on conference calls for multiple hours at a time. The unit is on the golf course, just off the green for the 1st hole. You get great views from the lanai looking east towards the sunrise in the morning but every other day or so, you can expect the lawnmower to come by at dawn to prep the golf course for the day. Not too intrusive but will be noticeable if you're a light sleeper.
The community is family oriented so expect lots of kids in the pool area. It's just a short walk to the Kings and Queens market areas, which made it easy to grab groceries, do a little shopping, or hit up one of the restaurants for a quick bite.
Thanks David and Jane for making it a great stay!
