Looking for condo for a family of 12

Hello.

First visit to Big Island.

Planning to spend last week of Dec 2006 ( 12/24 - 12/29 ) at Big Island ;

1. Looking for 3 - two bed room Condo.

2. Ages of our group are from 12 - 75 yrs old.

3. Close to a good Snorkling area.

4. Close to a good golf course ( If any package available, it would be great ).

5. We stayed at Kapalua Villas/Maui two years ago ( summer ), and we enjoyed very much.

6. When would be the best time to make a reservation for both Hotel & Air?

Above is our wish list, and we are flexible.

Thanks in advance for your input.

Aloha!

Have you looked at the Waikoloa area?

ResortQuest Waikoloa Colony Villas and Outrigger Fairway Villas are both VERY nice. Pretty grounds, close to golf, not too far from beaches by car, 4 star accommodations, FULL kitchens, daily maid service and A/C. That will be a VERY busy time. Book soon!!! Christmas is the BUSIEST time of the year. I know folks that book a year in advance for X-mas.

Snorkeling at Wakoloa is marginal, but golf good. Suggest the Kolea condos... good very up-scale figure $500 a night per condo during christmas 300 yards to beach...

For eldery Colony villas is bad....all 2 story units beds up, liiving down. fairways... tiny pool, 1/2 mile to beach... so is colonys. neither near a beach..

During the Christmas period expecxt the highest prices..50 to 100% mark ups and 100% oucc. get reservations for room, restauuraunt, activities, in the next few months..... lots of folks book year after year........

Check getting a home in Kona..

Kona by the sea is near Keauhou Golf and snorkel beach.... much cheaper than Kohala coast.

beware of travel agents posing as fourm members......

Aloha,

In addition to the Kolea condos in Waikoloa, if snorkelingis high on your priority list, you may wish to consider the new Kahaluu Beach Villa condos. They are directly across from Kahaluu Beach in Keauhou, and this beach is known for its snorkeling.

You should be skeptical of dealing with ANYONE on-line. Everyone needs to remember that. In today's world, a person must even be sketical of "local experts" who post here as there was one local expert on an AOL forum that was scaming people. He has since been removed; he lived on Oahu and is now in jail!
