Michelle Gaddie purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Michelle Gaddie chose Kohala Coast
After looking at different communities on the Kohala Coast we chose to purchase this town home at Waikoloa Beach Villas because of its location to the many amenities within Waikoloa Beach Resort. We were also attracted to the low density within our community (only 120 condos), the two beautiful resort style pools, and the beautifully landscaped grounds. We especially like being within walking distance to both the Queens and Kings Marketplaces home to high end restaurants, shopping, Starbucks and local entertainment. After walking into this private end unit next to a large open breezeway we new we found our home-away-from-home.
What makes this Condo unique
Born an island of both fire and ice, where land and sea meet in one of Earth's most epic battles, is where we discover the Big Island of Hawaii towering above the crashing waves. Home to two of the world's greatest mountains, one of the world's most active volcanoes, 11 of the world's 13 climate zones, Hawaii's greatest king, and the wettest city in the United States (HILO), the Big Island of Hawaii is an island like no other. It is an island of such proportions that all of the other islands in the main Hawaiian chain could fit inside it twice. Sitting in the middle of the Pacific Ocean, the landmass of the Big Island is approximately the same size as the state of Connecticut, about 4,050 square miles, and is still growing daily thanks to Kilauea Volcano on the eastern coast of the island. Waikoloa Beach Resort is located on the Kohala Coast with ideal weather year round with average temperatures in the 80's. The best beaches on the island, beautiful Hapuna and Kauna'oa beaches are an easy 10 minute drive away. This upscale community has something for everybody! Sights to visit - distances by car: A-Bay beach (1 minute) Waikoloa Hilton (2 minutes) Hapuna and Mauna Kea beaches (10 minutes) Kona airport (20 minutes) Kona town (30 minutes) Hawi (35 minutes) Waimea (45 minutes) Captain Cook's monument (40 minutes) Hilo (1.5 hours) Volcano National Park (2 hours) Big Island is a short 5 hour flight from LAX.

Michelle’s home is beautifully decorated, spacious and comfortable. Her home had everything we needed to feel like home. Her home is conveniently located to several markets, shopping centers, beaches and neighboring districts. We would love to stay here again on our next visit to Kona. Thank You Michelle for having us!
Beautiful townhouse exactly as pictured! Clean and well stocked. We were very comfortable for our 7 day stay here. Easy walk to Queen’s marketplace a plus.
Beautiful home in tropical setting
I was so impressed with this property. It was my first time booking with Home Away and Michelle was so helpful and responded so quickly to my questions that it put my mind at ease. The property is located on a golf course and I used her suggestion to play the Beach Course which was lovely. And Queens’ Marketplace is just across the street from the condo with easy access to shops and restaurants. Thank you Michelle for your help in making this a successful vacation for my family and myself.
Great family vacation
Exactly as shown in the photos! Incredible location within walking distance to all the queens and kings shops and restaurants. Kitchen is equipped with every appliance you could need. The outdoor patio was a favorite. We had a super fun time!
Thanks Dawn, for your nice review. We are glad to hear you had a nice trip and that you enjoyed our home. We hope you will stay again on your next trip to the big Island. Aloha! Michelle
Beautiful home in a beautiful location!
My wife and I just stayed at this lovely Waikoloa Beach Resort home with our 3 children (ages 7 through 12) for the kids' Spring Break. The house is marvelous, with great outdoor seating and very comfortable bedrooms and interior living spaces. The surrounding property and grounds are simply spectacular in vegetation and greenery. There were plenty of beach supplies in the garage for us to use, and so many activities are within walking distance or just a short car ride away. The property is across from the Queens and Kings Marketplaces, which gave us walking access to lots of great restaurants and shops. The Island Gourmet is a great market to get food, alcohol, and common drugstore supplies (like Tylenol and sunscreen). Some of our favorite local spots included Lava Lava Beach Club, the Luau at the Hilton, Daylight Mind Cafe for breakfast, Kamuela Provision Company restaurant for a fancy dinner on the waterfront, Foster's Kitchen (best fish tacos I have ever had!), On The Rocks for a casual dinner watching the sunset and listening to live music in Kailua/Kona, and for a quick delicious local bite we loved Ippy's Hawaiian "Barbeque". We hiked the majestic Pololu Trail down to a black sand beach near Hawi, did the Flumin Kahola kayak ride, kayaked and snorkeled Kealakekua BayI had to ask Michelle (the owner) a quick question and I was able to reach her on her cell phone promptly. She was easy to communicate with via email, the VRBO website, and by cell phone. The pictures shown of the house are true to the real thing, one really has to see and stay at the house to fully appreciate it! We have been to Hawaii many times, and this was the best house we have stayed at on the islands. We were very sad to depart, but we have left with many fond memories.
Aloha Santosh, Thank you for your nice comments on our vacation home; and thanks for taking such good care of it! We are pleased to hear that you and your family enjoyed the Big Island and staying in our condo. It sounds like you were able to take in many of the sights and great locations on the island. We hope you will consider staying again in the future. It's always nice when guests return. Mahalo, Michelle
Amazing condo in an amazing loctaion
We spent 19 nights at this condo over spring break. Location is amazing within walking distance to shopping, dinner and to watch the beautiful sunsets at A Bay. Been renting on VRBO for years and have never had a condo as well stocked as this one. Condo is beautiful finished with an amazing lanai with a gold course view. The BBQ was top notch and we cooked fresh caught seafood from Da Fish house up the road most evenings. Owner was great in providing check in details well in advance and was very accommodating leading up to our stay. You can tell the owners have put a lot of love into this unit and you really feel warm and welcomed in this condo. In my mind, this is the best loctaion within the complex, close to both pools and the front gate when walking. We would come back to this rental in a heart beat.
Aloha Chad, Thank you for your nice comments on our vacation home. We are pleased to hear that you enjoyed the Big Island and the location of our property. Thanks for taking such great care of our home! We hope you will consider being our guest again in the future. Aloha, Michelle
