We first listed Villa One on VRBO May 1 2022. It had previously been an active and successful VRBO for over 6 years. We've had many happy guests, and many 5 star reviews. This exceptional and private condominium is the first ground floor villa at The Shores at Waikoloa Beach.
Villa One has views of the Pacific Ocean peeking through Palm and Plumeria Trees, and the fairways of the Beach Golf Course. It is a completely remodeled, luxuriously furnished condominium residence, fully equipped to maximize your island getaway pleasure. Experience the peace, beauty, and relaxation of old Hawaii in a low density, beautifully landscaped community flowing with flowers, koi ponds, and fountains. A few minutes stroll leads to the ocean, or to the beautiful white sands on Anaeho'omalu Beach (also known as A’ Bay), or to restaurants and a full-service grocery in the Queens Marketplace. Villa One is perfectly located for elegant resort living.
Two equally large master king suites have views and their own sliding glass doors opening onto the lanai, high quality orthopedic mattresses and linens, Sony flat screen TVs and private ensuite bathrooms (separate soaking tub, glass shower, double sinks, and granite counters). Each master suite is located on opposite sides of the large living area.
The spacious great room and designer kitchen opens onto an expansive >560 sq ft (52 sq m) wrap around lanai with dining for eight and cocktail seating for an additional four where you can relax and enjoy the view. Villa One offers true Hawaii indoor/outdoor living, year-round sunset and ocean views, and breezy trade winds to enjoy our wonderful climate; mid 70sF (20sC)/winter, mid 80sF (upper 20sC)/summer, and 6-10” (15-25cm) annual rainfall.
The large comfortable great room has a granite counter wet bar with wine fridge, two oversized sofas, a 65” LG Smart TV, and dining table with seating for six. A well-organized dream kitchen makes cooking fun and easy, featuring a Thermador stainless-steel built-in gourmet oven, microwave, warming oven, an extra-large side-by-side Thermador built-in refrigerator, beautiful granite countertops, oversized deep sinks, a drip coffee maker & bean grinder, instant pot, rice cooker, mini food processor, hand mixer and full kitchen tools, dishes, paper products, condiments and spices. A brand new GE washer and dryer allow you to travel light.
Quality upgrades contribute to the spacious luxurious surroundings in your home away from home, including travertine stone flooring throughout, crown molding, recessed lighting, ten-foot ceilings, built-in closets, outdoor water fountains, and a half bath for guests. Villa One is fully air conditioned, but also has new ceiling fans in the great room and bedrooms, as well as screened doors and windows throughout, that allow the ocean breezes to flow through, often making the A/C superfluous. There are two more new ceiling fans on the lanai. Best of all, Villa One feels like a peaceful, personal home oasis within an amenity-filled resort.
Villa One amenities include gated resort, private entry, dedicated covered parking adjacent to front door (no stairs, easy to unload groceries, luggage, and gear), large walk out yard with fountains and views, central A/C, high speed WIFI, and Spectrum Cable TV.
Of course, we have beach chairs, beach umbrella, boogie boards, and coolers to use on the best beaches on the Big Island, all within five to fifteen minutes drive from Villa One.
The Shores at Waikoloa Resort amenities include swimming pool, two well-maintained tennis courts, an air-conditioned exercise room, beautifully landscaped low-density grounds and fountains, and several gas BBQ grills.
Located 17 miles north of the Kona Airport on the sunny, dry west coast of the Big Island of Hawaii, the Waikoloa Beach Resort boasts the most consistent sunshine and best climate on the Big Island. A planned community of hotels, condominiums, unique island restaurants, and two shopping areas, the resort offers tropical landscaping of flowering trees and bushes, two golf courses, fountains, ponds, lagoons, and swim with dolphins at Dolphin Quest at Hilton Waikoloa Hotel. A large white sand sheltered beach at Anaeho'omalu Bay (“A Bay”) is ideal for swimming, and provides opportunities for stand-up paddle boarding, outrigger canoeing, kayaking, snorkeling and scuba. Watch whales during the winter or take a sunset cruise. Enjoy numerous hikes along the coast or around the island, or picnic on the beach. Day trip to Kilauea, an active volcano with a chance to see the lava flow at night, or to black sand beaches in Pololu and Waipio Valleys. Experience sunsets from the summit of 13,786’ snowcapped Mauna Kea or stargaze at the incredible Big Island night sky. Catch a wave from often photographed Hapuna Beach just thirteen minutes away or curl up with a great book and relax in luxurious comfort in your very own Villa.
The surface waters of the open ocean around Hawaii range from 77 °F (25 °C) between late February and early April, to a maximum of 83 °F (28 °C) in late September or early October. With water temperatures this mild for hundreds of miles around, the air that reaches Hawaii is neither very hot nor very cold. The water temperature is wonderful for swimming year-round.
Mahalo for looking at Villa One. Enjoy the experience of the Big Island Paradise.

The property is beautifully decorated and the chef’s kitchen is fully equipped. The property is also centrally located to all the amenities (stores, restaurants, beaches) and golf.

My wife and I booked this house for a 10 day stay. It’s was an amazing property which exceeded expectations. It is very central to all the restaurants and shops and also a very spacious and beautiful home. We hope to come back and stay again in the future. Richard was a great host.

Loved the location and area, the home was perfect for two couples. We each had master suites. All the extras needed for the beach. All the information provided from the owners and through the manual were spot on and very helpful.

Villa one is a very comfortable and beautiful home. Both master bedrooms and bathrooms are perfect. The living space is huge, which includes the dining area, with a full clear view of the golf course and ocean in the distance The kitchen has everything you might need to cook as little or as much as you'd like. The bar area is awesome. We are very picky about our cocktail and wine glasses and we found the barware to be perfect. The lanai was perfect for all meals! We especially enjoyed the short walk to watch the sunset from the beach. Thank you again for sharing villa one with us!

The Villa One property was extremely spacious, clean and comfortable. Richard was fantastic at communicating any code changes and also offered a great list of to do options. You have to check out this property.

The property and grounds are amazing, the location convenient for excursions both north and south. I wish we could have extended the stay (it was offered, but our plans had already been made). Beautiful Lanai and perfect for sunset watching if we weren't already at the beach. May I ask what hole was out our back door?

This condo was beautiful and equipped with everything we needed for a spectacular Hawaiian vacation. The owners were very accommodating and provided great suggestions for things to do and places to go. The location was easy walking to the ocean, the pool, shops and restaurants. an ideal place with plenty of privacy for two couples to get away!

We rented Villa One for ten days in early June. Our group included Rita and me, and Rita’s son and his wife. The house was all that was advertised and more. The two master bedrooms with king beds were spacious and very comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked and spices and condiments were neatly organized and labeled. There was a nice separate bar with a wine cooler refrigerator. The living area had ample seating that allowed us to binge watch season 3 of Ted Lasso on the big screen TV. As nice as the interior was, the highlight of the house to us was the large patio with several separate seating areas and incredible sunsets over the golf course view (with an ocean view in the distance,) The community pool was nice and warm and the hot tub was…hot! The owner, Richard was very helpful and considerate. All in all. We had a great time at Villa One and would definitely return on any future trips to the Big Island.

This condo looked great in the online pictures and was even better in person! We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. The location was within easy walking distance to restaurants, pool, beach and shops. Would highly recommend this place to anyone planning a visit to the Big Island.

We were attending a conference at the Hilton, but were a bit late organizing and there were no rooms left there. And we ended up very thankful for that because otherwise we would not have stayed in the condo and had the great time we had. The condo is perfect, very completely furnished and supplied, and Richard is great to deal with and is very kind, conscientious and well-organized. We would definitely look to stay there again if we get to return to Waikoloa.

Villa 1 is clean, quiet, well kept and has lots of space for living and relaxing either indoors or out on the lanai. Richard and Marita have thought out and supplied all that you need for a comfortable and enjoyable stay. We especially enjoyed: -the well stocked and organized kitchen and separate bar space -the beach equipment (nice chairs, umbrellas, towels, coolers, boogie boards) that was easy to pack and go -the location which allowed us to easily walk to the shops, many restaurants, A beach and shoreline trails -great reference binder and quick communication and advice from our friendly host. Would definitely recommend and hopefully can someday return.

The condo is spacious and well appointed, with a nice view of the golf course (and a sliver of ocean view). The host was very well organized, attentive and responsive. Overall, it was an excellent stay and we hope to return again to the Big Island.

My wife and I took her best friend to the Big Island for 10 days and this condo was PERFECT for us! Our friend had never been to Hawai’i before and it was great to be able to show someone around our favorite place in the world AND to be able to come back to this quiet, beautiful, comfortable and extraordinarily well-stocked vacation home. Tho it is a condo and it is in the Waikoloa development (which is honestly too over built for my taste), this condo FEELS much more like a private home. I also didn’t feel like we were crunched in between a bunch of other units. If you like to cook (as I do) this place is wonderful! Some properties we’ve rented didn’t even have salt and pepper. But this place has just about everything you might have in your own home: spices, many different oils, vinegars, baking supplies, and condiments in fridge. And when I offered to get more olive oil (as the bottle was low when we got there), Richard (owner) sent Jen (fabulous on island caretaker!) to bring us more! That has NEVER happened in a rental before! Richard & Jen were very responsive and prompt in helping us resolve a tech issue w the TV and helped us find things we couldn’t find in the house book. Honestly, I cannot say enough about our fantastic stay at Villa One at The Shores in Waikoloa! Mahalo nui nui, Richard, for sharing your wonderful home with us! We hope to be back soon! Cynthia, Heather (from Culver City, CA) and Sharon (from Albany, NY) PS we hope you will get to enjoy the cookies we left you!

Richard (host) was great to work with, very patient, accommodating & warm. Went above & beyond to make our stay a great one. The unit is very clean, well maintained, just as advertised in the pictures and very well stocked. The location is great if you are looking for beach hikes etc. We would not hesitate to stay here again. This listing has all/mostly 5 Star reviews for a good reason.

Richard is an excellent and communicative host. The house is beautifully done and having two King-Suites makes it ideal for 2 couples who each want the “best room in the house”… meaning both rooms are equally premium. Location is perfect, with huge patio looking out onto a nice large grassy area and then to the outing green of the nearby course. Walking distance from a very private amazing little beach and natural wetlands between the Marriott and Hilton resorts. We very much enjoyed our stay and appreciated the well-stocked kitchen pantry and fridge that had a lot of spices, oils, herbs, rice, coffee, and things like mayo, mustard, dressings, etc so we didn’t have to go buy $150 of that and leave it all behind. The beach gear was also great to have eg chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, towels, etc. they even had a decent sized Igloo day cooler. We look forward to our return.

We totally enjoyed our stay in this lovely property. It is spacious and comfortable with two master type suites, a very large lanai and all the extras that made us feel very welcome. We appreciated the easy and informative communication with owners. Perfect setting, views and access to all there is to see and enjoy in Hawaii. We highly recommend.

Hours before my flight to Kona, I received news of a medical emergency that caused me to cancel our vacay and catch the next flight to Indianapolis to tend to my 92 yo mom. Obviously, I had no choice, but I was so looking forward what is clearly an outstanding property. In handling all pre-vacay arrangements as well as my cancellation, Richard was very helpful, responsive and flexible. He is clearly a man of integrity and the ultimate professional - two the most important keys to any VRBO relationship. I look forward to rebooking with Richard as soon as we are able.

The condo, itself, was spacious and clean, with high-end furnishings and a great sunset view. It also had everything you would want for a stay, with plenty of flatware, dishes, and utensils of all sorts, spices, beach gear, a wine refrigerator, and miscellaneous items. Plus, the owner's guidebook had excellent advice on nearby restaurants and day-trips. On the one occasion I called the local property manager (because I couldn't quickly find the email I'd gotten before the stay with a bit of info I needed), she was prompt, friendly, and immediately helpful. Great communication from owner. No hassles or issues. Recommend.

Such a beautiful condo and in the perfect location, too. Just a short 5 minute drive to A-Bay beach and an easy walk or short drive to shops at the Queens Marketplace and Kings Shopping where you will find shopping and restaurants. The Tropic Ale House is just a few steps away from Villa One. A great looking gourmet kitchen loaded with spices and cooking utensils. Two large bedrooms, each with its own master bathroom and a large living room with comfortable seating for at least six adults. Even the lanai is supersized!



August 2022
This High end Condo was as advertised, it is show room ready. All the supplies and amenities that you will need. This two bedroom gem is worth every penny, you will not be disappointed. The beds are awesome and great kitchen and a fantastic lanai. Book this now. You will not be disappointed

Villa 1 was beyond exceptional!! It was incredibly clean and spacious. We came to the Big Island on a girls trip and enjoyed every minute of it. Villa 1 has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Communication with Richard, our host, was easy. We would definitely recommend it and wish to come back soon! Mahalo!

This unit is fantastic! The space is very large and open with wonderful natural lighting. It is decorated beautifully and has what feels like two primary bedroom suites. The balcony is massive and was great to spend time on with the cool breeze. We would absolutely stay here again in a heartbeat.

Accommodations were as advertised, excellent. The shaded lanai was a wonderful spot to enjoy reading, eating, watching Green #3 on the Beach Course, finding errant golf balls in the bushes, short walk to the ocean (need shoes - lava) that has a peek-a-boo view, overall a good place to let the cool breezes chase your cares away.
