Richard & Marita have thought of everything for convenience- appreciated the attention to small details that you may need on vacation! Check in was easy; check out was not burdensome- instructions and tips are clear! Easy walking distance to shops and golf- can see the sunset form your lanai! We were very pleased with our stay and would stay here again!

Overall, lovely condo, nicely updated and comfortable. Well equipped save a few minor items like cheese grater and vegetable peeler in kitchen for when you wish to prepare your own meals. Also, could be practical to add a couple of reading lamps in living room. Otherwise, a great spot in Waikoloa Beach Resort! Would not hesitate to recommend to other travellers going to this location on the Big Island!

Very nice clean condo with everything we needed. It was perfect for our 8 day visit. This was just perfect for our needs. Perfect size kitchen with great choices of pans and utensils. We would love to come back! We enjoyed walking to the beach and being close to shopping at the King's Shops and Queens Marketplace. We found wonderful restaurants around the area Lava Lava Beach Resort,

Absolutely!. Great property and amenities. It's everything i want in a Big Island holiday. Beautiful space, located close to A Bay and Waimea. Host is responsive, but i didn't need to bother her. Give this joint a go!

Loved the property and the accommodations. Very clean, and lovely view of the mountains. About a 15 minute walk to the nearest beach, but there are also a number of beaches within a short driving distance. We arrived about an hour early and I contacted the host to see if we could check in a little early, and she was very accommodating. Already booked for next year!

Rooms were spacious and comfortable. Lots of hot water in showers. We loved the short distance to the beach—it was gorgeous. Enjoyed the pool and hot tub. I noticed in a different review someone said the knives weren’t sharp. Ours were perfect (we ate BBQed steak). Gorgeous views of the golf course. We also appreciated the beach chairs and boogie boards. All in all, a great getaway for family or couples looking for a relaxing, fun vacation.

Motel 6 had a better selection of necessities than the condo. No beach gear, ice chest, condiments (like salt and pepper), dull knife set missing scissor, no Big Island travel book,blanket didn't fit bed. Had to call to get compete starter kit. No feeling of extras, very spartan.

This is the second time we have stayed at The Shores and we absolutely love it there. The pool is amazing. This condo has everything you need to enjoy the beach, including chairs and an umbrella. Kitchen is well stocked. Would stay again!

Our visit was nice. The home is quite clean and has a well stocked kitchen. An updated on the furniture inside and out is recommended. Overall, the facility is beautiful, quiet at night and we very much enjoyed playing tennis most nights

Lovely condo and lanai - perfect size for a couple. Nicely remodeled main bath. Very thick foam pad on bed but 100% cotton sheets would be better and fitted sheet that fits tighter do it doesn’t bunch up under you at night would be better.

We had a great one week stay at the Shores of Waikoloa. Condo was just as shown on the listing. Very convenient to all locations on the island. Lanai was huge and very relaxing overlooking the koi pond. Pool a quick walk away. Hot tub was large with great jets. Beds were comfortable. Lots of privacy for two couples. Close enough to walk to the coastal hiking trails. Highly recommend this property.

We really enjoyed our two-week stay at this third floor unit. From the large deck, we had a great eastern view of Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa, as well as the golf course and lava field; this also made it sunny in the morning as well as cool and shady in the afternoon. The unit is very spacious and well equipped, including nice touches like a coffee grinder, ice maker, great air conditioning, beach chairs/umbrellas, and a very complete set of kitchen utensils and supplies. We’ve stayed at the Shores before and really enjoy the meticulous upkeep, spaciousness, and the amenities.

We are leaving today after a four week stay, and we enjoyed the property very much. This is our second time in this condo, and we don't generally repeat. Lin is great to work with, the location is perfect, the development is the best in the Waikoloa area in our opinion, and the condo itself is very comfortable. We would definitely recommend this rental and plan to return ourselves someday soon. Thanks Lin!

Stayed here after 12 days in Kona. Very different vibe, with Waikoloa Beach being much quieter and laidback ( at least partially due to lack of the cruise ship crowd). Lots of nearby golf, restaurants, beaches, in addition to a lovely pool/hot tub in complex. Condo is clean, comfortable, and modern. Well decorated & supplied with lots of little kitchen extras and beach supplies. Would have loved to stay again next year, but unfortunately already rented.

My wife and I rented this recently renovated 2nd fl 1 BR corner unit with a huge lanai in late January. The unit was well appointed with everything you would need for an enjoyable stay (including beach gear - snorkels, masks, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella). The unite was very clean. Good location in the Waikoloa beach area; easily walkable to shops, restaurants, and most importantly the beach (10 mins or so). Go and enjoy!

Near the pool and all the restaurants. Wonderful unit we stayed there three times now.

We had a wonderful month long stay at this condo. The place was spotless and so well equipped, Extra plusses were the Welcome Basket and all the extras eg plenty of paper towel, shampoo/conditioner and body wash and lots of beach equipment.

February 2024

We enjoyed our week at The Shores. This unit is very comfortably furnished and also well equipped, with pretty much everything anyone would need. The landscaping outside the lanai is beautiful. Easy walk to shops and restaurants.

Gated and private complex. Spotless on arrival. Excellent accommodations, nice decor and artwork. Quiet and relaxing, good pool and exercise room. Didn't use the tennis courts. If you enjoy walking, you can visit the Shops, the "A" beach and the Hilton properties. Well equipped with paper towels, condiments, coffee filters, laundry and dishwasher supplies, etc. The bed and furniture were comfortable. While everything was adequate, there is always room for improvements. We would have a couple of suggestions - more silverware, a colander, and perhaps a medium saucepan would have been helpful.

A lovely unit with a wonderful wrap around lanai and view.

Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was clean. I was happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: The location was good for visitors that don’t drive the island much. Condo needed some attention such as repairing the ceiling on the lanai, steam cleaning the rugs, lightbulb in the frig, cleaning the oven. One pool for the complex of condos was “uncomfortable “.

The location was great, close to every thing. The place needs some updating. But overall good and comfortable.

Stay was fine. Location good, size of condo great. Ice maker was broken and only 5 coffee mugs. Would have been nice to have 8.

This was our first trip to the island of Hawaii. The Shores at Waikaloa is truly a gem. No traffic or HVAC noise- just birds and breezes. The grounds are impeccably kept. The whole area is lovely for walking. The condo itself is very comfortable and clean. The spacious lanai was our favorite place to hang out. We loved our stay and were sad to leave.

My husband and I enjoyed another great vacation at The Shores at Waikoloa Beach Resort. We've stayed in a variety of units at the property and feel they are a very good price for the location and amenities. Many of the units at the property, including this one, are older show some signs of wear but we will definitely return. We enjoy the pool, hot tub, ample parking, quiet setting and short walk to shopping, restaurants and A-Bay. The property management company for this unit, CB Island Vacations, provided great instructions and responsive communication.

Great well manicured property. Lovely pool setting. Easy walk to Queens and Kings marketplaces. A Bay very close too. Comfortable condo

The Shores is an excellent gated community with beautifully landscaped grounds. The lanai/balcony was very spacious and positioned to allow us to eat all our meals outside, covered for protection from direct sun. There was a selection of beach chairs, beach towels, a cooler, thermos water jug, a bit of snorkel gear and a boogie board. These additional items were very much appreciated and used. The unit is very spacious and comfortable for two. It is within easy walking distance to a beautiful beach. It is also close to the Hilton Waikoloa Village where my partner attended a conference. I would recommend going to the larger grocery store in Waikoloa Village for more selection. We would definitely return to this unit!

Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Beautiful location, property outside beautiful. Unit outdated but clean! Vertical blinds missing in spaces for privacy, might be a good place to start on update. Loved the beach toys to have access to.

Thanks for the beach chairs and umbrella - great for Hapuna beach. Make sure you walk over to the ocean to watch the sunset! Saw some whales!

Spacious one bedroom condo in a quiet complex. Well equipped kitchen and pleasant outdoor patio. Shopping and restaurants close by. We enjoyed our stay! Only wish it was longer.

This is our second time staying in the condo. Great layout, location, and expansive lanai. Perfect for our family of four. The only con is the primary bathroom shower is open with no door or curtain. High pressure shower head leaves a lot of water on floor. It has the potential to be an amazing primary bathroom with a few simple tweaks. Otherwise, another nice stay in Waikoloa.
Heidi M.
January 2024

We have stayed in this condo before and came back because the location is great and the area is quiet, has a nice pool, and the lanai on this condo is sunny almost all day.

Great property. We loved the quite corner location overlooking the golf course and Mauna Kea Mountain. The floor plan was really nice and the unit was well maintained and very clean. The kitchen was well stocked it had everything we needed. We also loved the location we never ended up using our car as we love to walk and walked to everything. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone. Finally the owner host was always responsive and easy to work with. We will be BACK!

January 2024

The property is very beautiful and the grounds are excellent. The pool, fitness center and grills got good use from us. The property is close but not too close to the things we wanted to do. Our unit was very nice and clean except for the carpeting. It needs replacing. As a whole, everything was nice and I'd recommend it.
Jamie S.
January 2024

The overall impression: very good! The best: position of the building complex close to all we needed (beach, hotels, shopping), beautiful grounds, large apartment and lanai! Everything we needed was provided in the apartment! Not so good: very dark after sunset, barely distinguished the name of the building. The master bathroom's vanity was dusty and dirty, and so were the kitchen and entrance floors (they were sticky when we walked on them). That was easy to remedy, we just wiped these surfaces. All in all, things went well, and we would return there in the future.
Nicolae L.
January 2024

This unit was exactly as advertised and had everything we needed to make our stay amazing. Well stocked kitchen, beach and pool gear - wagon was handy especially for Hāpuna beach one of our favourite spots! We used the BBQ’s, just across the parking lot very convenient and the the Tropics pub is pretty much on site and caters to NFL fans on game day if you are so inclined:) Mahalo Martin… we’ll be back soon… so much to see, do and just to relax!
Brian N.
January 2024

This property was really well maintained, and was such a cute place to stay. The owners really kept the place feeling like home, down to an incredibly kind gift basket for guests. While we didn't spend much more time here than having a place to sleep for the night, I could definitely see spending a much longer time here and thoroughly enjoying it. The condo is in a great location, not too far from the airport and civilization but also not too far from some great views and peace and quiet.
Katrina P.

Very comfortable and spacious condo in a lovely location. The amenities were very nice. Very walkable to nearby hotels, beaches, and shops. Great spot in the condo community and nice neighbors too!
