Vista Waikoloa
Reviewed 8 February 2017

We have been in the Big Island at least 4 times in 10yrs and this was the first time in December. On our first day in the condo to the last day, I felt that the owners took care of us by inviting us to their condo to make it our own. The complementary fresh fruit and coffee was a great example.

The view that I saw on your VRBO website met all of our expectations. We have memories sitting at the table on the lanai and enjoying the ocean view and eating breakfast. Our special treat was that we saw whales swimming by during breakfast one day.

The inside of the house was well appointed and comfortable throughout the condo. A lot of attention to detail and thought went into remodeling this condo. We loved every inch of it.

The kitchen was well designed with high end appliances. We cooked most of our meals in the convective oven as we enjoyed the food prepared in this oven. The kitchen was well stocked with the little things you need for meal preparations. We used the special coffee maker daily. It grinded and brewed fresh coffee and with steamed milk.

The master bathroom was spacious. We enjoyed the bathtub and the separate shower. There were plenty of supplies for the bathrooms.

We found the cooler, mats, chairs, boogie board, and snorkel gear handy (in the lanai closet) when ever we went to the beach.

The grounds are well kept and beautiful. We used the pool and the spa almost every evening Our walks in Waikoloa resort were awesome. We are only a 10 minute walk to the shore and enjoyed sunset walks. We used the exercise facility almost every day and met our needs.

All of the research that the owner wrote in the documents provided for us were put to use. What this condo provided was the peace, comfort, relaxation that we needed from our busy lives and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts. I would recommend renting this property to anyone, it is well worth it.

Room Tip: Buildings A and B have the best views. A301 has views from the master bedroom, living room, and lan...

C205 condo for 14 nights very centrally located. Found complex very guiet other than luau music in the early evening which we enjoyed listening to. Loved the pool area which was seldom busy. Checking in was so easy, punch in code for gate and condo. We arrived 10:30pm will definitely stay here again

This is our second time at the Vista and third time in Waikoloa and we have never been disappointed. The area is so relaxing and away from the busy town of Kona yet plenty to do. We just love taking morning walks to one of the many shops or down the Kings trail or maybe just along the shore line. We love Happy Hour at Lava Lava or next door at the Tropics. It is a great safe place day or night and the beaches are spectacular. The Vista has great views of the ocean, golf course, or pool area and the complex is so well maintained. The pool and hot tubs are so enjoyable from early morning till late at night yet never over crowded or loud. Great place for families or just a couple looking for a nice vacation spot.

Room Tip: Complex A,B.C,&D have great pool and top floors have ocean views, all rooms have some great vie...

We spent 10 days at the Vista Waikoloa in early October. The grounds are beautiful...the pool is nice...and it was very quiet! We traveled with another couple and our two bedroom condo was very spacious.
Our unit was on the third floor overlooking the golf coarse. We loved having breakfast each morning on the lanai.
Vista Waikoloa is very centrally located. Lots of good restaurants with spectacular sunsets are close by.
Will stay here in our next trip!

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.
