Surface cleaning was acceptable but the unit needs a deep spring clean; lights, fans, upholstery and carpet on stairs to loft. The local Vacasa agent was helpful and responsive to my texts.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: My stay in this condo was great! The area was beautiful and the condo was very clean & well equipped with normal household items (pots & pans, linens, etc). It was very enjoyable to wake up with such a view every morning. It was also very peaceful. I can’t wait to stay again!!

Stayed 6 nights with family. Quiet neighborhood but close enough to all the beaches and attractions while still providing space for kids to have their space. Golf club pool is also very nice

This condo was exactly as described! Beds were very comfortable, it had EVERYTHING you could ever need or want in the kitchen, the outdoor locker was stocked with beach supplies, parking was convenient and the complex (while older) worked for my family… pools were clean, warm and unbusy! Golf was close, there is a local grocery store close and the location is only a short drive from the beach!!!

We were very happy with our stay in this home! The house was very clean and cozy, and I really appreciated how well stocked it was with any useful items one might need! They had beach gear, plenty of towels, including beach towels, blankets, pillows, kitchen essentials, you name it! The host was easy to work with, and very responsive. Check-out procedures were very simple. The home was only about a 15 minute drive to the nearest beaches, and it was on a nice, quaint, golf course with nearby grocery, and a couple of restaurants, if you don’t want to make the 30 minute drive to Kona. There is a shared community pool in the backyard, with a hot tub and nice covered area with community BBQ grills, refrigerator, sink, and counter space, and tables to enjoy dinner outdoors/pool time together with the family.

This condo isn’t fancy but has all the essentials. We appreciated how clean it was. Sunsets were nice. Nice calm neighborhood too.

We were extremely happy with the rental!! The check-in process was so easy and check out was absolutely fantastic. Contact with the owner was perfect! Easy, fast, friendly It had absolutely everything we needed, all the beach equipment was so huge for us and so so nice. The house is stocked with everything you need which cuts down on spending so much money with the cost of eating out. The place felt like home super comfortable Grocery store is super close nearby which is so very convenient. The most amazing beaches on the island were just 15 to 25 minutes away. The rental was really central to so many locations under an hour to go to Mount Loa sunset and star gazing, and up the north coast to the Pololu hike, or drive to Captain Cook Monument to do the hike to the snorkelling. And 40 minutes to the night manta ray snorkeling boat launch. And only 30 minutes to the airport We highly recommend it and would definitely come back.

I typically spend a month each year escaping the Alaska winter to dive in Hawaii. Jon's condo was very nice and a convenient location for shopping, eating and diving. I loved being on the ground floor and the lanai was a great place to relax.

We stayed a week in February 2024. The condo was great. Very spacious, backing onto golf course. A bit dated but the price is totally worth it! Everything you need is there. Beaches are a short drive away.

Our visit to the Big Island was great. The place was super. We had only one suggestion and that was to do a quick clean before new arrivals. It felt like the dust and floor grit was just because the place may have been empty for a while before we arrived. One other suggestion provide a swiffer or some floor mop for the patio. We wanted to clean it but there wasn’t an easy way. Mahalo and many thanks, Christie

Overall this property is great, especially the particular location of this unit- quick walk to the pool (outdoor bbqs and a fridge are there), as well as a beautiful view of the golf course. This ground floor unit is great for small children, they would run around the golf course during sunset and loved watching for the wild turkeys and goats. The location means you have to drive a lot (beaches, ice cream etc) but it is certainly a beautiful spot. The unit is well stocked with everything you need. We really appreciated having sand toys and chairs so we didn’t need to buy these items when we arrived. Only complaint is that there was no pack and play, and the cost to rent was quite high (I could have bought a new one for the cost of 9 days).

Loved our stay here, great condo and amenities, and really appreciated having access to beach toys and coolers, as well as the fully stocked kitchen. Really hope we can stay here again in the future.

The location was exactly as described and depicted in the listing. Cleaning was very impeccable. The location and complex and amenities were wonderful. The unit itself is dated as seen in the photos. Cleaning was great. However every morning there were cockroaches in the dishwasher. And there were only fans provided for cooling the condo Down. And signs one the main sliding glass Door not to use the screen due to mice problems. So the condo was very warm and uncomfortable. But the condo is exactly as advertised. And Pleased.

This unit in Waikoloa Village is in a great location. Walking distance to the golf course and Johnny's, the restaurant at the course. The master suite is spacious and has fans to circulate the air. The other bedroom could use updating - mattresses and linens are older. The towels provided are great, and of them. The living room furniture could also use updating. An older couch and chair show lots of wear. Four can sit at the round table, but it's tight. The kitchen had lots of equipment, but again, it's on the old side. The stove is nice and looks new. Fridge is nice sized. There is no ice maker in the freezer - just trays. The lanai is lovely and the turkeys do a nightly promenade on the lawn. The pool and BBQ are close by. The heat for the pool and hot tub doesn't turn on until 3pm. Make sure you get a parking permit from the office - we were almost towed and didn't know to get this. The place worked fine for our stay and would have been great with upgrades. Mahalo

Nice property and unit. Quiet and peaceful. Love the breeze during the day. Got quite windy at night but it helped to keep it cool.

This property was perfect for our stay on the Big Island! Even though my husband and I do not golf, we found this Waikoloa Village setting very pleasant and inviting. Max’s updated one bedroom condo has a beautiful setting with a tranquil view of the golf course and lush grounds. Its location is a great spot for exploring beaches, hikes, and historical sites anywhere on the island. This property is well-equipped with kitchen, bath, beach and patio items. We would definitely rent this gem again!

Very well supplied condo in Waikoloa Village. I always appreciate when a rental has basics like cooking oil, salt, seasonings,foil etc. beach chairs, towels, cooler. Because it was an end unit, it was very handy to access parking thru the patio so loading the car was easy. Had access to the community Olympic size lap pool and my husband walked to the Village Course at Waikoloa for reasonably priced golf, both were less than 5 min walk. I had to contact my rental agent with 2 issues, and she responded quickly both times. I thought this unit was a good value on this expensive end of the island.

March 2024

This condo was perfect for 3 adults and 2 kids. Clean and easy to check in. The perfect location to many beaches and golf. Golf at a discounted rate was wonderful. Able to walk to golf restaurant and club house.

If you are thinking about staying on the Big Island look no further. Been using VRBO for many years and this property gets top marks in all categories. Condo was spotless when we arrived and had absolutely everything we needed to enjoy our stay hassle free. Rachael was great to deal with regarding all the little details. Great location, great golf course, great condo

This condo was very well equipped, they shared ice-chests, beach chairs, towels, umbrella and even snorkel gear. The book had good recommendations for places to go. It was a nice stay, would stay here again.

The location was in a good location to get to most places on the island. Great Italian restaurant down the road. Beaches near by. Good golf course.

The property is very nice. Condo was clean and has pretty much everything we needed to start out. It’s a little dated tho but all in all we had a lovely time.

The entire property is absolutely stunning. The grounds are well maintained and beautiful. The condo was exactly as mentioned and well stocked. Very modern decor and recent renovations. Wish we could have stayed longer and would definitely return.

February 2024

My partner and I spent a very pleasant four nights in Waikoloa Village. The unit has two spacious bedrooms, a comfortable living room, well stocked kitchen, and a lanai that looks out over a golf course. It was a great escape from the crowds and chaos of Kailua-Kona where we have stayed in the past. A shopping center with a supermarket and several small eating establishments is within walking distance. A 30 minute drive takes you to Waimea, with multiple farmers markets and perhaps the best restaurant on the island, Merriman’s. We will be back.

We stayed for a month and had a wonderful time. The unit is close to pool and golf club. Nice short walk to village with grocery store and restaurants. Loved the complex and that the unit was on the ground level. The large bedroom with high ceiling was the great. The pictures are definitely not up to date. The furniture needs replacing. The setup is odd with tv where bar stools should be. TV sticks up beyond top of counter and had to be wiped down when we arrived due to finger prints all over it. The cupboards all needed to be cleaned and organized. Games were all dumped into two big drawers in coffee table. I sorted out about 10 decks of cards. Kitchen needs organization and purging. We had to buy a fry pan and a knife because they were so bad. The bathroom rugs really need to be replaced. One fan didn’t work when we arrived and then the bedroom ceiling fan stopped working. Maintenance came to fix but were unable. They put a new washer and dryer in while we were there which was nice once they were done. I would stay again but with lower expectations.

This place was very clean and very well equipped. We had everything we needed to make our stay stress free and enjoyable. We made good use of the pool, hot tub and outdoor grill. Having a washer and dryer in the unit as well as the dishwasher was awesome. I hope to come back on my next trip to the big island.

This is a lovely place. Quite spacious for two people, very clean and comfy! Everything was easily accessible with very organized instructions, activity suggestions, etc. the complex was very nice as well with friendly people. We highly recommend this place!

The condo was perfect. The lanai was big and the view was beautiful. It was a very quiet place to stay at, except for the turkeys and roosters in the morning, haha. It was better than noisy traffic and people. Kerrie was very easy to get a hold of and very helpful. It was very much appreciated. We loved our stay there and will definitely stay again.

This review in no way reflects the condition of the actual property, but do not book using Vacasa. We had an unexpected medical issue come up that affected our two night stay scheduled. We simply wanted to change the date to a future stay. This could have easily been changed based on the short term/future availability of the property, but they would not budge. They treated us like a number. I have rebooked with another property and won't use Vacasa again.
Jill B.
February 2024

The place is beautiful the view is beautiful I just had a problem with the fact Quiet time was 10 PM to 8am And one of the neighbors we’re asking us to hold the noise down at 6:30 PM my wife and I are both in her 60s !! anyways the only other problem I had was because we had to close all the windows and screen doors that early it got a stifling hot because we didn’t wanna make noise so more fans are probably needed at this unit So in hindsight this should be a four-star because I should not downgrade this place because of the neighbors but this only my opinion

This condo has everything you could ever want. Between what's provided & what is available to the community, this really is a great vacation spot. Check in was very accommodating, and the place smelled so good. Every room was thoughtfully decorated, both luxurious and cozy. This place is perfect for a refreshing & restorative stay.

This property is reasonably priced, clean, and comfortable! While it isn’t a beachfront property, there are several beaches to choose from within a 20 minute drive. It was quiet and the unit was stocked with everything we needed.

The location is very "user-friendly" with stores, restaurants and a nice golf course close by. Our unit was very clean, quiet and secure. The manager responded promptly to two minor problems. The kitchen was fully equipped and there were even some spices left in the cupboard!
Craig S.
January 2024

We had a great stay in this unit. The view from the patio was lovely and the living room and kitchen area were well equipped. Bedroom and bathroom were a bit small but comfortable and the shower in the bathroom was very nice. The AC unit in the bedroom was needed to keep the bedroom cool at night but could have used an AC unit in the main room when it got hot and it was not possible to get a cross breeze in the living room area.

I was in need of quiet time and this condo was just perfect. I could be social if I chose to go to the pool/cabana or just read in my own space. For me, this trip was not about exploring or site seeing (10th stay at this location) and more about regrouping after personal trauma. This place served my needs very well. Mahalo KLou

January 2024

Nice and quiet. Nice location for traveling to the Hilo side. But the large ceiling fan did not work and lots of sand bags was very concern in the front entry.
