“Relaxing condo!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 June 2014

My parents, and brother and sister's family has stayed at the Fairway Villas many times, but this was the first time for me and my family. My wife and I plus our two kids, my mom, and my sister her husband and their kid all stayed in a three bed room/three bath condo. We were right by the pool, and the patio was facing the golf course and Kings' Shops so we had a good sunset view.

We got there a week after my sister so I don't know what it looked like before they got there, but everything was still clean by the time we showed up. I thought the kitchen was awesome. Stainless steel appliances and granite. The washer and dryer was very convenient, and close to the door on the main level.

My wife and I stayed in the master suite. It was very nice. It had a big tub to relax in, a spacious shower, and huge walk-in closet. My mom stayed in the bed room with two twin beds, and my sister and her husband stayed on the main floor in a room with a queen size bed. Both the other rooms have their own bathrooms.

My kids loved going to the pool. Sure it was busy, but nothing too bad. They also had a hot tub.

Another good thing is your in walking distance to the King and Queen shops. Plus this place is very affordable, especially if you have a lot of people going. Compare prices of the hotels across the street to the Fairway Villas, and you'll find that this place is a bargain. That's my opinion.

We plan on going back, and when we do I know we'll be staying here.

My wife and I decided to stay somewhere different other than Waikoloa colony villas. We had stayed there the last 4 years just decided to switch it up. The view was amazing, that's about it. The carpet was filthy with stains and one of our sinks were broke and the sink water never got hot. We pulled up to the gate to check in but after having to call the resort we had to turn around and go to an outside office to check in. We usually have to check out late due to our late flight, the colony villas charge $50 for a late checkout. This place charged $75 dollars and the kicker was when we went to pay the bill it was $131. We were wondering why......oh a standard cleaning fee.... Really, that's not included. That's how you lose a customer. We'll be staying at Waikoloa Colony Villas from now on.

Thank you for your comment regarding your stay at Fairway Villas. We are disappointed to hear your stay was not as enjoyable as it could be. We encourage guests to please immediately contact the office if they find problems in the apartment upon arrival or during a stay. The staff are eager to make every guest stay a pleasant one. The usual guest experience is a good one. There is a one time check out cleaning charge to every guest stay to ready the room for the next arriving guest. This information is available on the property web-site as well as passed along to the many business partners that promote the Fairway Villas. We wish you the very best and trust we may be of service in the future.

We stayed in unit O-32 (2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms) for one week in May (family of 4). Our condo balcony overlooked the lake by the Kings shops, which were a short walk away. We had to arrange a late night arrival and also had a change of plans due to a flight delay, but the condo offices were very helpful and accommodating. The beds in our condo were comfortable, and the kitchen was stocked with all everything we needed to cook meals, which helped us save money on food. The BBQ grills are communal on this property. Groceries are expensive in the nearby King and Queen shopping centers, but there is a more affordable grocery store about a 15 min. drive away from the resort area. In addition to the kitchen, the condo also came stocked with towels, a cooler, and ice packs, which were extremely helpful for trips to the beach (10-15 walk away). We loved this condo complex, and would stay here again. Perfect for families who need more space.

The grounds were very well taken care of. Grills were cleaned daily each morning. Pools were well taken care as was the hot tub. Great area to jog and shop. Room was a two bedroom villa. Comfortable beds and villa was spacious. Beach was close by. We had a great time!

We booked two units at the Fairway Villas for a group of 12 of us. We ere originally booked into the Palm Villas but due to a glitch we were moved to these complexes for the same price. I cannot help but compare the two. The units at Fairway were very nice and seemed high end. The 3 bedroom unit was well appointed, clean and in very good shape. The beds were comfortable and there were plenty of towels and a few extras. The 2 bedroom with the loft was a little more worn, the trundle bed was awful and the two twins were quite uncomfortable. Our group that stayed in the 2 bedroom were not as happy as we were in the 3. My big complaint is the complex itself. 165 units with only one pool. It was busy, loud and generally not enjoyable. The Palm Villas has one pool for 44 units. Quite the difference. Also, the Palm units had their own BBQ's. Nice! The Fairways had a community BBQ area where the lines were long and slow to use. For 165 units it seemed too small. We love the area - quick walk to the shops and beach. Check in was seamless and the staff was helpful with all questions. While the units were mostly fine I will book the Palm Villas next time as the smaller size of the complex is more to our liking.

Thank you for taking the time to write a note about your stay. We understand staying at 44 apartment complex that you are used to is less busy than a property with 165 apartments. Glad you enjoyed the area. We look forward to having you back on island!

We had a lovely main floor condo looking out on to the fairway.
This part of the Island is great, way nicer than Kona, not as busy.

Pros
- Spacious
- AC worked well
- Okay view if you like golf course fairways
- Bed was good
- Towels were good quality and plentiful
- Free long distance to US and Canada
- Washer/Dryer, Great kitchen with lots of dishes, pots, utensils and paper towels, beach chairs etc.

Cons
- Poor sound proofing between floors could hear every step the people above us took.
- Floors were tile, very hard on the feet & knees, had to wear shoes inside, apparently everyone did as the carpet from the bedroom door to the bathroom was very dirty. There was a second bathroom but the door was locked. They would unlock it if we paid extra.
- No sugar for coffee, salt, food wrap, tin foil etc..
- No in room WiFi just a wire connection for a laptop, not much good for a smart phone or tablet. The router was equipped with WiFi but the Outrigger staff didn't know how to access it, it just needed a password.
- Could not open the bedroom blinds, golfers that were just 30 ft. away could see directly into the bathroom, no door.
- The check in process is a pain, you have to go to their offices in the nearby Mall to get the gate access code and the condo keys.
- Outrigger staff not very accommodating or helpful with directions or suggestions.

The nearby Gourmet Market is way overpriced, $11 for a sandwich, $8 for a loaf of bread. If you need groceries or road trip snacks drive the few miles to Waikoloa Village, prices are way better, selection is great and the staff are friendly and helpful.

The area is great lots to do other than just golf, eat and stroll the beaches. It’s windy so the ocean is rough, Beaches are nice, didn't find any good snorkelling.
Restaurants are good, check out the Romano’s Macaroni Grill, great food, fantastic service, reasonable price.

The improved Saddle Road can get you to the other side of the Island in about an hour. Watch your speed on the downhill grades it can really pick up fast and the Cops are all along the new west connector section of the road. Get directions from someone like the good folks at the Waikoloa Village Market as the signs are not very good.

Room Tip: Go to Waikoloa Village for groceries Stay on the top floor

We've been to the big island several times and have always been very pleased with our accommodations (we have stayed at the Fairways Villas as well as The Shores.)

We just finished up two weeks at the Fairway Villas. This time around, we stayed in unit J23. I'm sad to say that these units have seen better days. Nothing appears to have been updated in the past eight years. Additionally, our unit didn't look like it had been cleaned very well before our arrival (the kitchen and bathrooms definitely needed mopping.)

The decor throughout our unit showed wear (cracked tile in the bathrooms, worn out carpet, broken window blinds.) Amenities were ok - kitchen items were a hodgepodge of mismatching silverware, utensils and cookware, most of it worn out. There was a decent amount of beach gear (beach chairs, boogie board, umbrella) as well as plenty of beach and bath towels. The unit also had a stackable washer/dryer, which we've always found to be quite useful. The pool and grill areas are still in good condition and we enjoyed spending time there.

Our unit was on the second floor. The floors are not insulated and you will be able to hear every footstep and bathroom sound above you. If you are sensitive to noise, I would recommend that you request a third floor unit (we wound up running the AC fan at night.)

I hope that our unit is the exception, but would be hesitant to rent here again without pictures (perhaps rental through a private owner.)

Room Tip: Third floor units are preferable if you are sensitive to noise.

Thank you for taking the time to draft comments about your stay. We are very sorry that you found the apartment not to your liking. Each apartment is individually owned and furnished. The owner of J23 visits quite regularly and does regular upgrades as needed so we were surprised about comments regarding furnishings and wear. The owner in the last year has replaced all carpets as well as furniture in the living areas. The kitchen is fully stocked for a comfortable stay. We are glad to hear the property facilities were enjoyed. We look forward to you returning to our beautiful island again.
