Vista Waikoloa
Reviewed 29 October 2016

My husband and I, along with our son and his wife and two toddlers spent 11 days at Vista Waikoloa, in 7-D. It is a 3 bedroom, 3 bath condo on the first floor. Late October was a great time to visit - there were only a few days others were staying in the same building. Great pool, with a sandy kiddie pool, just across the street. Great view of the bay, very close to a nice sandy beach, grocery store a short walk or drive away, and use of the Hilton Hotel amenities also a short walk or drive away. The condo had a large master with two other decent-sized bedrooms. Decent kitchen, living room and dining area and patio area out back with BBQ. Given that these are primarily rental units, I thought the general condition was just fine. The condo was very clean when we arrived. The one negative was that the air conditioning didn't work well at all in the smallest bedroom off the kitchen. It was great having a washer and dryer with two toddlers - even though the front load washing machine was a bit moldy smelling. All in all, we would definitely stay here again. The location was great - just a short drive down the coast to a variety of great beaches, 20-30 minute drive to the airport and Costco.

Room Tip: Building 7 has great view of the ocean and across from the pool/hot tub/fitness area.

Good location and served our purpose quite well as we attended a conference at the Hilton during part of our stay. The Ironman competition had plenty of people in training so trying to keep focused on the road at times was challenging. I think to sum it up, the wife of the couple traveling with us wasn't eager to go to Hawaii but towards the end of our stay she said "I'd come back". Have to believe the condo played a part.

Room Tip: The pics on their site are accurate, a slight oceanview through a few trees

We were absolutely, completely satisfied with our stay in Vista Waikoloa D-301! From the time we rented this condo until the time we checked out, the owners did everything possible to make our accommodations comfortable and memorable! This condo is in a fabulous location, with beautifully manicured grounds and many amenities. D-301 is spacious, has updated Hawaiian décor, and comes equipped with any extr'as you might need, including beach equipment and a barbeque pit. If we have an opportunity to return to the Big Island, we will definitely rent the Gablehouse' condo again. Mahalo!

Our vacation at A301 was an absolute dream. The condo has been recently upgraded with the most sophisticated and modern design with every comfort and amenity at your disposal. A+++. Not to mention the views, proximity to just about everything you'd want to do on the Big Island (Kona side), and the most wonderful and gracious owners/hosts who did everything you could imagine to provide us the most amazing welcome into the condo. Great place for kids, beautiful pool, walking distance to beach, delicious food. Everything you'd want in a vacation destination.

This is part of my thank you note to the owners of A301. I think it paints a pretty clear picture of how great this place is. Unique furnishings and art and many added amenities like beach gear, etc. We very much enjoyed the leisurely pace of the Big Island from the home-base of this special location. Waikoloa had a nice Fireworks show for the 4th, too!
Thank you very much for a memorable week of swimming, snorkeling and relaxation! You have a very special place in A301 and we feel fortunate to have experienced the Kohala Coast from your place there. Both the interior and lanai of the condo are so nice. It was lovely to be able to see the ocean from almost everywhere, inside and out. We appreciate the welcome goodies and enjoyed the fruit and plenty of coffee from the Gaggia - that is an awesome machine!

We treated your place with the respect and care it deserves - it is pretty fabulous. The art, furnishings and just about everything! You all created a super special place here in HI. It was also so nice to have all the beach supplies to use - that really helped. We will be recommending it to like-minded pals back in the Bay Area, for sure. Thank you again for sharing Brendan and Judith - Aloha!
