Very pleased with everything about our experience. Rental car issue and a groundskeeper helped us with a jump start 😃thank you for the great time. Excellent property. Very very very beautiful spot on the golf course
We will definitely stay here again! This is a great place with everything you could need for your trip. If you are going to the pool or the beach or just hanging out with family and friends it’s the perfect place to enjoy Hawaii.
Great location, the condo is extremely well stocked with various items that we found super convenient.
Beautiful condo I would highly recommend. Fully stocked kitchen, super comfy beds and pillows, well stocked bathrooms with lots of towels, body wash, shampoo, conditioner. Really appreciated the amazing closet with all the beach goodies we needed: super nice beach towels, snorkel gear, coolers, beach chairs. Hali'i Kai resort is gorgeous and views of the ocean from the lanai were amazing. So wonderful to eat our meals outside and enjoy the sunset. The pool seemed more geared towards small children but that's ok, we spent our days at the beach. Would definitely go back!
We loved our week here and woke up every morning looking forward to having our coffee and enjoying the breathtaking view of the golf course and ocean! It was incredibly well stocked!
The inconvenience we had was that the rules for the pool were extremely strict and they wouldn’t let anyone bring in any drinks (including water), or even allow our daughters to gently pass a soft ball back and forth. Just to note, there is a $25 daily resort fee you have to pay when you arrive. Not the hosts fault at all, the rules and regulations are set by the pool management.
We enjoyed our stay in this well stocked, clean and updated home. The activities closet was stuffed with beach chairs, snorkel sets, coolers, toys, etc. The kitchen and bathrooms were well stocked as well; although there was no shampoo or shower gel, a little surprising since the rest of the house was filled to the brim with supplies. Maybe housekeeping forgot to stock the showers? We had our own so no big deal for us.
The view from the lanai was very beautiful and the community was also well cared for and so pretty. The beds were comfy and towels and linens were great too. Communication with Christi was prompt.
My only "annoyance" with the rental was that entrance to the community pool and private club restaurant was not included in our weekly cost; it was an extra $20 per day. While I appreciate that we saved that money (we didn't end up paying), I also feel like we missed out. I guess, personally for us, we'd rather have the resort fee and amenities included in the rental cost and then feel free to use those amenities whenever we wanted. We always seemed to think of using the pool at the end of the day and then didn't want to pay $20 for an hour. I know it's trivial, but that's how it ended up feeling for us. We should have paid the resort fees for the whole week up front, but we got in late after the welcome center was closed and forgot to go the next morning.
Regardless, we would definitely return to this condo and recommend it to others.
Tasteful, classy property with everything we could have wanted. Highly recommend.
The ocean view from the lanai was amazing! The condo was well stocked. We felt welcomed from the moment we arrived!
Wonderful property with views of the ocean.
Very good experience.
We cannot say enough great things about this property and host. The condo was very clean and comfortable. It was well stocked with everything we needed-just like being at home. The location was close to restaurants, shops and beaches. The pool and bar/restaurant was the perfect way to end our day. We look forward to staying here again next year!
Condo had everything you needed and then some! View from pool was like no other.
This property indeed should receive all the great reviews it has...absolutely well deserved...but on top of this, the view was that much better than described in the listing. I must have overlooked this. For whatever reason before arrival I did not anticipate such an expansive view of the ocean but it is indeed a full on view of the ocean. It's wonderful to sit outside off the living room (on the terrace where the table and barbecue are) and see the ocean full on, as you can as well from the master bedroom. This was quite unique and so appreciated!
Been to big island several times, but first time staying at Waikoloa. Very convenient to beaches, dining, etc. Great condo and lanai.
If we could give this 5+ stars we would. The check in process was a breeze and we were very impressed with the accomodations. Plenty of beach gear, and a fully stocked kitchen (plates, pans, knives etc) If you have stayed at places before you know those sometimes can be a bit sparse. Everything in the unit was well appointed and easy to use. Close to the King and Queen shops for restaurants and shopping too.
Communication with the host was easy and she was extremely responsive and helpful. The pool was solid but we spent most of our time running around the island. We highly recommend and will be back
Roomy, clean, well laid out, Extras were a great touch
This property was great. Clean with a great view of the water and well equipped. Would definitely stay again!
Very well stocked kitchen (appliances, equipment and pantry items), high-quality furnishings throughout. Great deck for watching the sunset. Highly recommend.
We stayed at Hali i Kai in August at a different (also amazing) condo. That unit was booked this trip, so we chose this unit and were nervous we wouldn't love it as much as the other one. We couldn't have been more wrong. The unit is gorgeous - beautifully decorated and fully stocked - the owners really thought of everything from a vast array of kitchen items and tools (they even had an air fryer) to everything you need for exploring the island (beach chairs, snorkels, beach towels and mats, tennis rackets, a basketball, a cooler - if you needed it for a day out, it was there!). All items were labelled and clearly organized - I was blown away - I've stayed in many VRBOs over the years and this was best stocked one to date.
I was also impressed by the welcome - I won't spoil by telling you the details but walking into the condo for the first time helped set the tone for our incredible vacation.
If you are unfamiliar with Hali i Kai, I cannot recommend this property highly enough. The ocean club, where the pool, restaurant, bar and fitness club are located, is unsurpassed. Watching the sunset from the hot tub while sipping a coconut mai tai....having delicious pork nachos or red curry for dinner....meeting the exceptionally friendly and competent staff and chatting with them daily...meeting the other friendly guests in the pool for happy hour - all of it is beyond magical. We are officially in love with the Big Island and will always stay at this property. Our last unit was a bit closer to the pool and on the first floor, so you could walk from the lanai directly to the pool. This unit was on the second floor and a little further away but the views were breathtaking and the unit felt more roomy. Both owners/property managers provided different but special welcomes - both were very communicative and helpful. I truly loved both but would probably choose this one again to have more space for my growing teens.
Stop looking now and just book this unit. I promise you will NOT be disappointed.
We love this place. Beautiful artwork and wonderful kitchen! The beds were super comfortable and the pool was amazing! Thank you so much for letting us stay in your amazing paradise condo!
Best VRBO experience. Beautiful condo with great views. Fully equipped kitchen and stuffed activity closet with all the equipment you could want to enjoy the beach and on-site amenities. Tennis, pickle ball, beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, etc. great communication with owners. Hoping I’ll be able to return because this unit will book up fast.
This is a beautiful and spacious condo for 5 adults. It is well appointed and the beds were very comfortable. There is a distant view of the water.
The kitchen is extremely well stocked so it is easy to actually cook there. The activity cupboard was also very much appreciated with 4 beach chairs, towels, cooler etc. We played pickle ball every morning and never waited to use the court. There is no beach within walking distance but there are several within close driving distance.
The pool is pleasant but sometimes ran out of chairs. The drinks around the pool are very expensive and you are not allowed to bring your own, even non alcohol. There is an extra resort fee of $20/day per condo to access the pool. This does give you pool towels and access to a small outdoor gym.
The host is accommodating and easy to contact. The coffee pot was not working and she had an immediate solution. All in all, a lovely property.
Our vacation rental truly exceeded our expectations! Condo thoughtfully equipped with basic necessities and all the beach gear. Beautiful artworks and furnishings. Great location as across from tennis, pickleball, and basketball court, and short walking distance to the Beach Club. Look forward to booking again in the future.
Thank you, Christi, for being an amazing host.
This is a great condo - we thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The view of the ocean from the lanai was beautiful and we enjoyed sunsets and dinners here almost every night. The Ocean Club pool also had a spectacular view and was a great option for dinner when we didn't want to cook.
The condo is incredibly well stocked with everything you might need. We really appreciated how well equipped and functional the kitchen was but without a doubt, the "activity closet" was the best surprise. Beach chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards, snorkel gear, pickle ball and tennis - this cupboard was full!
I booked this property but my husband and I were not able to go. But we sent on my son and his girlfriend. Their report and pictures showed a beautiful condo with amazing views from the balcony, great location, wonderful pool with bar and excellent poolside restaurant. Christi was wonderful to communicate with before- no problems encountered. I can't wait for my own stay at her beautiful place.
My family and I loved everything about our stay here. The beds are comfy, everything is very clean, the activity closet has all items needed for the beach, the kitchen is the BEST stocked kitchen I’ve seen in 12 years of Vrbo stays! And the view is fabulous! We love the pool area and Ocean Club bar/restaurant.
There is nothing I would change, everything was perfect.
This is a great property and very clean. Had nice amenities and everything you would need to be comfortable. Christi, the owner was great to work with. Would definitely stay again!!
We absolutely loved staying at this condo. It is so well appointed with everything you could need for a perfect stay in Hawaii...from beach gear (coolers, chairs, mats, umbrella boogie boards etc) to yoga mats, any cooking equipment you could ever need, to sparkling clean rooms and even a washer and dryer. The condo is super convenient and in such a nice complex with pool and restaurant just a short walk away. Christi was super helpful with local activities and advice. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!
