Hawaii THE BIG ISLAND
This was our first trip to Hawaii, and my sister-in-law and I decided to try a condo vs. a hotel. I research different places on the island and finally decided on Waikoloa Village. Viewing the property on line was a true picture of what to expect. The minute we arrived and walked in, we were transported into a Hawiian paradise. All our expectations were far exceeded. The peacefulness of the surroundings, the beautiful interior design, and the impeccable landscaping, why would you want to stay in a hotel. A plus for anyone who golfs, the course could be seen from the lanai. The pool is directly across the lanai, but not visable because of the landscaping. For those who like to cook out, the pool house has a total kitchen set up with the best grills I have ever used. For those that don't want to travel into town, which is about 20 miles away, there is a small shopping area just before you get to the main road of the complex. Plus the grocery store was much better then the one in Kona. The beaches are about 6 miles away on Rt. 19. They were just beautiful and a good place to take sunset pictures. To get a good history and see the sites around the island, I felt the 12 hour sight seeing tour was well worth it. We did the submarine excursion but really felt that it was overpriced. It only lasted 1 hour and basically all you saw were those little yellow tropical fish. We were told by the natives that over the years the bay has been fished out and they are not allowed to bait the fish into the bay. The kayak ride through the irregation flumes was quite interesting. If you should chose this condo, you will not be disappointed. The owners are within a phone call away, or email them, and they will immediatly deal with your concerns. They were just the nicest people as were the residents of the complex.
