Don’t look any further!! This is the BEST! Pictures are exactly accurate. We had everything and more for our trip. All the beach gear you need, lots and lots of Tupperware, cooking supplies, grilling supplies, zip lock bags of all sizes! It would take me forever to list all the amazing amenities this villa has. I was impressed! It was hard to leave this amazing villa. It made our wedding week so memorable. So happy I chose this villa. The host and villa manger were so helpful and available at all times. Thank you!

The space was so perfect for our trip. It was so quiet, clean and spacious. We had everything we needed. There are beach chairs and some other random (and helpful!) beach stuff in the closet. Everything was great!

My family and I enjoyed a great vacation in Waikoloa Beach Resort. We loved the Fairway Villas G1. It’s close to King’s and Queen’s shops and A-Bay and Lava Lava Beach Club. We loved the location, spacious layout and the beautiful lanai. The pool was great and the complex was quiet but welcoming. A perfect spot to stay for a Big Island vacation!

The property grounds were beautiful, quiet, and well maintained. The pool was nice, and A-bay beach is just a short walk. The condo was wonderful, had all the amenities we needed, plus the owner supplied all the beach equipment we needed. You couldn't ask for a nicer place to stay while exploring the Big Island. The host and property manager were very responsive to questions. We had a great time and were sad to leave!

Nice, clean, spacious condo in Waikoloa. Great location that is central to everything (walking distance) but feels private and remote. The pool is fantastic and the condo is well stocked with everything you might need. The outdoor patio is lovely and the condo has everything you might need for the beach.

March 2024

We had a very good stay and enjoyed our trip. Some things the owner may want to consider is upgrading the mattress in the master bedroom and ensuring all lights in the unit are in good working order. Otherwise, this Penthouse had everything we needed to have a fabulous vacation.

Excellent supply of beach accessories. Great tech as far as wide screen TV and fast/ reliable WiFi. Great communications with owner and property manager. We highly recommend staying at this unit.

We loved the location; check in process of was. The inside of unit needs some TLC. Our sheets in Master looked like they had been slept in.. long black hair,etc. Pillow cases on King pillows, but none on 2 standard. No wash clothes in Master bath; no trash can. Floors looked dirty; hasnto Swifter them right away. Dishes were Hodge Podge, like they were bought at Thrift store. TV in Guest bedroom didn't work; no TV in Master bedroom. This was probably the worst VRBO we have ever stayed in as far as furnsihings & cleanliness. Plus, we had to wash all towels per instructions. Beach chairs & beach towels were good though.

We have stayed in this area many times over the years and this place is among the best. The condo was exactly as advertised, the check in was super easy and communication with Ruma was easy as well. The condo was exactly as advertised and the location was spectacular close to shops and A-bay beach. This is a ground floor unit which made it easy bringing in luggage and supplies throughout our stay. We stayed away from Costco and went to the farmers markets in Waimea on Saturdays and Wednesdays which have local produce and a cool island vibe. We would definitely stay here again. Mahalo

We have had our second great stay in this condo which is very welcoming and comfortable. The unit is well stocked, especially the kitchen. All of your beach needs are available including beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, coolers etc. The owners are fantastic to deal with, checking in prior to arrival and during our stay. Very prompt response to questions. The location is ideal, within easy walking distance to numerous shops and restaurants. The view from the balcony is beautiful especially the sunrises many mornings. We are looking forward to future stays at this property and would highly recommend.

A great week enjoying the Waikoloa Beach Resort, Kohala Coast Beaches and all that Old Hawaii Kona has to offer. Unit is located close to resort shops and restaurants, but some of the best places are away from the resort zone. Go to Beach 69 for the day and then head up to Waimea for The Fish and The Hog, or Big Island Brewhaus (local restaurants that welcome visitors in their beach attire). Another option is Magic Sands Beach and then dine along Ali'i Drive and its numerous offerings. Volcanos National Park and Hilo are available for an extended day trip. If you do, hit Hawaiian Styles Cafe for breakfast and Hilo Burger Joint for dinner. At the end of any day you choose, the unit welcomes you back to comfort.

Excellent apartment, with a few minor issues when we arrived: the kitchen was a bit dirty, the coffeemaker had old moldy coffee grounds, and both toilets were stopped up. No callback from the onsite representative for 2 days. We cleaned up the coffeemaker and seriously plunged the toilets, and from then on our stay was more than wonderful!

March 2024

The condo unit was clean, tidy, well decorated and doesn't feel like I walked into someone's home. The kitchen and baths were stocked very well! We really appreciated the detergent pods and extra dish liquid for washing and keeping dishes clean and tidy. The bed mattresses were not saggy and used like other places we've been to. Overall, it was a perfect stay and a perfect location. The owners also accommodated us with a flight change we had and allowed us to check out a little later on request. Thanks so much for renting us this unit!!

This is our second stay at this condo and would look forward to staying again. The condo is a comfortable size and the ground floor with extended lanai makes the condo feel larger than it is. We like the convenience to the market, shops and Aloha Wine Bar - Best happy hour for "cheaper" drinks.

This was a lovely, well-appointed condo, conveniently located. I was pleasantly surprised to find an elevator that was directly across from our third floor unit. I would stay here again and would recommend it to any friends and family looking for a rental in the Waikoloa area. We appreciated the beach toys, chairs, boogie boards, fins, etc., etc., etc. Our grandson especially loved the loft as his special play place.

This unit is perfect for a family trip. We traveled with a group of 5 (2 adults, 2 teenagers, and 1 near-teenager), and the setup was great. The location was convenient for many activities, and the beach equipment was much appreciated. Thank you for a wonderful family vacation!

This is one of the nicest Waikoloa Beach properties. We have stayed in a number of apartments here, including others in Fairway Villas. The apartment was spotlessly clean, comfortable, and in a great location for the shops and beach. The kitchen was well equipped, the beach gear served us well for several visits to Hapuna Beach. Overall a great experience.

We’ve stayed in Fairway Villas a number of times over the years and always have enjoyed the resort location. This is the first time we have stayed in this unit and everything worked out well . Communication was very easy with the owners . When we asked about a late check out they were very accommodating. Looking forward to our next year stay . Mahalo Raquel, Daryl

Our stay had its ups and downs. Upon arrival, we noticed the cleaning crew rushing to finish, leaving behind a lingering smoke/vape smell in the kitchen that took about a day to dissipate with airing out. Although management offered to send someone with a freshener, we preferred not to have kids playing around chemicals. We also found random bits of trash under beds and furniture, and some kitchen items were not properly cleaned, but nothing too terrible. The lanai furniture was dusty and had some rips, so we opted not to use them during our stay. However, the kitchen was well-stocked with appliances and a random assortment of pantry goods, though it lacked some basics like pepper or sugar. One major downside was the loud AC unit in the master bedroom, which required earplugs for a good night’s sleep. It’s also above and open to the living room with plantation shutters to block noise. On the positive side, the pool and grills in the facility were enjoyable amenities. One important note: kids under 12 are not allowed in the hot tub, which we wish had been clarified before booking. Overall, while we might explore other options first, we wouldn’t rule out staying here again if we were in the area.

The unit was very well appointed…comfy beds with nice bedding and linens:) always the most important thing to me! Kitchen had everything we needed to stay in for as many meals as we could :). Lots of beach things for people who are on vacation - wish we could have taken advantage! The unit was very clean in general. Such a convenient location for the shops! The gym and pool are very nice.

We stayed with 2 other couples and the condo was perfect. It had lots of extras to make our stay comfortable and so we could prepare food. The pool and hot tub were great and the sunsets from the patio were beautiful. Short walk to the shops and Lava Lava club. Condo was clean and spacious. We all loved staying there. I would have liked a kettle to boil water for tea and a clothing drying rack. Highly recommend this place. Fitted 6 adults easily with every couple having their own bathroom. Thank you Richard for the great place. It even had beach gear, coolers and a picnic basket.

We enjoyed our stay in Waikoloa! The condo was as described. Very clean and had the perfect location for sightseeing, restaurants, and shopping.

It's a 2 bedroom unit with the owner's bedroom locked off, so you get a big space with two full baths, priced as a one bedroom in a 2 and 3 bedroom complex. Good condition and well appointed. Unit's on the 2nd floor so you hear footsteps above. Lanai is small and is SSE facing - in Feb we got direct sun most hours of the day which was hot and glaring but you might want that. Pool is close by and there can be some voices. Complex is the closest of any to both the King's and Queen's centers having shopping and restaurants (can walk there). King mattress/sheets/pillows were good but blankets and comforter were thin. Slider was hard to open and mini blinds need replacing.

We really enjoyed our stay in Fairway VIllas N6. The condo was very roomy and well lit with a great view of the golf course and King Shops across the lake. We were able to easily walk to shopping and restuarants and the pool in the complex was just two buildings away. Bedding and linens were higher quality than a typical rental and the condo was very well stocked. Would definitely stay again.
