This is a very high rate time... How much do you want to spend.

for that time I would give you a general idea

Hilo.....none

Kona... starting at $200 for a 2 bed

Kohala coast starting at 300 for a 2 bed

Volcano...none

Where would you want stay Kohala, Kona, Keauhou, Hilo, volcano... its a huge island

Use the excellent hotels section here to get to read what others say and rate a place. thats the best.

Renting from an owner may seeem a cheap way to go but it is without any service... you pay lots of hidden charges from AC to phone...cleaning, and an absentee owner is not there to help you with a problem...

Ripoff potential is huge and most want a check in advance.. a credit card will insure your experience.. not hang you out.

A savings is where you really do save and have a great experience. otherwise sleep in your car...

tHE condos in the Waikoloa Beach resort, with the exception of the Bay Club... ( a Hilton time share wIth a attitude)

I think will fill the bill.....shores, Vistas are the closest to beaches and the hotels and have the most central location. Colony villas and Fairway villas are the furthurest away.

You can get a Hilton waterpark pass for adout 480 for a day for 4. The pools there are not to be believed.... best i think in all hawaii..

click of Waikoloa beach.... be car full there are 2 Waikoloas.. on the resort and the other the village 8 miles up the hill....

The resort is filled with dining and youcan shop for food in the village market up the hill for the best meats and produce.. better than costco or Kta.... get Parker ranch beef.... itsthe best you will find.... only aVAILABLE IN THE VILLAGE...

Thanks! I am kinda torn between Resort Quest (Formerly Aston) Colony Villas and the Outrigger Fairway Villas. Resort Quest is 200 bucks more. Which one would you recommend?

Aloha Natku,

The Kona are of the Big Island is going to be pretty sold out / picked over for January. You may wish to check out the Waikoloa Beach Resort. You should be able to find a two bedroom condo at the $200/Night price level. Try going to your favorite search engine and typing Waikoloa Condo. You should be able to find something nice. Make sure you see pictures of the condo that you will be staying in, not just some model.

I like the Fairway Villas, Waikoloa Colony or the Vista Waikoloa. The Fairway and Colony are newer, and the Fairway and Vista Waikoloa are closet to the beach.
