Vista Waikoloa
Reviewed 10 January 2012

We got F106 unit and were absolutely satisfied with it. Very spacious and well-equipped, with great lanai and additional grassy plot because of the ground floor location. Nice pool and BBQ zone. Shot walk to the beach in A-bay, 10 minutes drive to Hapuna beach. Very close to King's shops with Roy's and Queen market place with big ABC store and food court, that was very important for us because of our five-year-old child. Also it was great to visit Marriott luau just across the road.

Have stayed in two different units at Vista Waikoloa over the years. Love the location, pool, gym, and the units themselves. Have found the property manager less than friendly, but don't really have to deal with him.

We stayed at Vista D-301 for the second time and it was great. Spacious and decorated with a real tropical feel. All the kitchen appliances have been updated and everything you could ever hope to have is included. This is our second stay here and honestly, it just gets better and better. Would highly recommend this place to anyone. The location is good as well. This is a top floor unit so the views are beautiful. This is one place that is on our calendar yearly as of now.

Room Tip: Vista Waikoloa D-301 is our favorite by far.

This unit is spacious and airy with plenty of room for a family of four. The unit was clean and fairly well maintained. The furnishings were comfortable and in good condition, and it was well-equipped with utensils, etc; we appreciated having beach chairs and a boogie-board to use. There are interrupted views of the ocean, and we were able to catch a few nice sunsets from the veranda. The mountain views of Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa and Hualalai are very nice.

There is a business center at Vista Waikoloa where you can access the Internet and print boarding passes, etc. This was very handy. The pool facilities were nice, but we didn’t use them much. There were four gas grills for guest use. These were all relatively clean and in good working condition, and much appreciated!

The only significant down-side to this unit is its proximity to the main road through Waikoloa and the noise of passing trucks and buses. It was anything but quiet. The walk to the beach (A-beach) is a bit lengthy, but not unpleasant. The walk along the beach to the Hilton is very nice with great sunset views.

My husband and I love the Vistas in the Waikola Beach Resort, we always
stay in unit E202. The condo is furnished perfectly, with a totally complete
kitchen. The views are amazing, and it's just a short walk to the beach, the
market, or a restraunt. This is truly a value!

The unit we stayed in (F305) was very well equipped. Every kitchen utensil we looked for we found, including for the grills. The unit also had extras that we weren’t expecting but were incredibly nice to have: beach towels, chairs, mats, umbrella, cooler, board games, books, extra blankets & pillows. All the comforts of home! I was also relieved to find the unit very clean, including the showers and beds. Couches and beds were very comfortable and the decor was very nice. The kitchen is a bit dated but everything (dishwasher, microwave, oven) all worked just fine.

The only thing that might have been helpful would have been a more extensive list of places to eat out (with addresses) that were close without driving into Kona. Our unit had wireless internet, so with a little research, we were able to find some places.

We booked through Abbey Vacations Rentals (KonaRentals.net) was easy to deal with and book. The website has pictures of each individual unit and they were accurate so we got exactly what we were expecting, as opposed to a hotel that may post a picture of it's best room but that's not what you get when you check in. Detailed instructions on how to get to the complex and how to enter the front gate after hours were very helpful. Detailed instructions on how to enter the unit were sent but were not useful. It seemed that the actual instructions were just opposite (ie. said to turn the key left to open but it was actually to the right).

Also, on our first day or two there, we did find some tiny ants on the bathroom counter (only), however we found a insect trap in the kitchen and put it out and had no other problems in the 9 days we stayed. Nothing in the kitchen.

This unit does face the main road that runs through the Waikoloa Beach Resort, however most of the units that will have an ocean view will at least partially face this road. We did not have any complaints with noise from the road and had no problem sleeping in. We did use the A/C most of the time so the windows were closed. Could be more of an issue if the windows were left open instead.

The complex is a short walk (5-10 minutes, depending if you cut across the golf course) to access Anaeho'omalu Beach (A-Bay), which has chairs and a beach shop to rent snorkels and get snacks. The water at the beach edge is a bit rocky but the water is pretty calm and definitely swimmer friendly. (For an amazing beach, drive 10 minutes north up Hwy 19 to Hapuna Beach State Park. Beautiful!!)
