Selecting a Waikoloa Condo

Waikoloa Beach Resort has the largest selection of vacation rentals on the Big Island of Hawaii and sometimes it can be quit challenging to find the perfect Waikoloa condo for you.  Here is a helpful guide to help you better understand each property and hopefully help make your vacation condo selection experience a little easier.

kolea condoKolea – Kolea offers the most luxurious condos in the Waikoloa Beach Resort.  The property is situated on the beach at A’Bay thus giving easy beach access.  It is also located between the Hilton Waikoloa and Waikoloa Beach Marriott giving easy access to both properties.  The complex offers the most variety of rentals.  On the frontage of the complex you will find multi million dollar private homes that have amazing views and range in size from 3-6 bedrooms.  Also located in this area of the property is the Kolea Beach Club, which is available to all guests and offers direct beach access.  Located behind this in a U shape are spacious 3 bedroom condos with large pocket doors, which most open up to views.  All of them encompass over 1600 square feet of space and offer large lanais.  Nestled in behind these are 2 bedroom condos and smaller 3 bedrooms condos.  These offer the same luxurious appointments as the others, but is a smaller size.

halii kai condosHalii Kai –  Halii Kai offers some of the best amenities of any complex at the Halii Kai Ocean Club.  The Ocean Club is on an oceanfront setting and offers a multi layer pool, a restaurant and bar, and a fitness center.  All condos at Halii Kai have access to these amenities.  Halii Kai is situated on a long narrow piece of land spanning over 1/2 mile in length.  The ones near the amenities are in a prime location as well as offer amazing ocean views.  Another large number of condos offer fairway views.  Some others are located around a lawn area.  If staying at Halii Kai, we highly recommend selecting a property near the Ocean Club as this will give you an amazing view as well as easy access to the amenities.  During the winter months whales are visible from the lanais of these condos.

Vista Waikoloa – Vista Waikoloa is one of the older complexes at Waikoloa Beach Resort, but offers a central location within the resort.  90% of these condos are two bedrooms and range in size from 1200-1300 square feet.  The Vista Waikoloa has one of the few heated lap pools in the resort and has a nice fitness center and pavilion.  Given that these condos are a little older, it is highly recommended to book one that has been upgraded.

The Shores –  The Shores also are centrally located within the resort and offer 1-3 bedroom condos.  There are some detached townhome style villas available here also.  They are also spacious condos spanning in sizes from 1100-1400 square feet.  This property also offers an array of amenities includes some water features around the property, tennis court, fitness center, and pool.  It is also highly recommended here to choose a condo that has been upgraded.

The Fairway Villas – The Fairway Villas are located near the Kings Shops and Queens Shops.  There are 2 and 3 bedroom condos here.  Some have fairway views and others overlook the ponds.  There is an infinity pool as well as fitness center here for guests use.  These condos are also starting to get older so it is recommended to choose an upgraded one.

The Beach Villas – The Beach Villas are located near the Kings and Queens Shops.  There are two and 3 bedroom condos here.  They offer the easiest access to events at the Waikoloa Bowl.  The amenities here are also very nice and feature a fitness center and a nice resort style pool.  These condos are roughly 7 years old so most of the furnishings in these condos are still relatively new.
