“Perfect in all ways”
Reviewed August 7, 2016 for a stay in July 2016

I have rented 5 different units in Hali'i Kai. They have all been excellent but 12A is a cut above all the others.

Peggy took a great unit and turned it into a perfect setting for your visit to the Big Island.

It starts with the tile floors throughout. Fans in every room including the lanai, top quality and high end large and small appliances - and the list is endless. There is nothing we could think of that it lacked.

The entertainment options that Peggy makes available are endless - ranging from toddler toys to snorkel gear.
Peggy was easy to work with and provides you with everything you need to know to have a wonderful, carefree home base.

We will never rent a different unit in Hali'i Kai. So fortunate to have found this one. I cannot recommend 12A highly enough.

“Great Unit at Halii Kai”
Reviewed July 2, 2016 for a stay in June 2016

We stayed for a week in this unit. It is a very secure complex with a gate right next to the Hilton Waikoloa.

This unit is beautifully furnished and well equipped. There were beach chairs, boogie boards, and many other supplies we didn't even have time to use! The kitchen has everything you could need. They were also kind enough to provide some items left from previous guests in the pantry. Nice!

This unit is very close to the pool/ocean so it's convenient to use frequently. The sunsets from the pool area are divine!

“Absolutely perfect!”
Reviewed June 2, 2016 for a stay in March 2016

This was my third visit to 12 A and will return as often as possible. Peggy is a dream to work with and the unit is by far the best in Halii Kai! The location is perfect for sunsets, whale watching and coaching golfers as they hit their approach shots on the signature hole at the golf course! The BBQ on the deck made it possible to never having to leave the property for several days! Upgrades are continually made so this unit does not show wear - it only gets better! I'd not hesitate to recommend to anyone wanting a quiet get a way with all the luxuries of home!

“Vacation of your dreams”

You couldn't ask for a better vacation on the big island than staying at this beautiful, well stocked, designer decorated condo. Defiantly your home away from home. Starting with Peggy who dropped everything so we could be accommodated last minute. She was a pleasure to work with and easily met all our requests. Vacationing with our adult daughters, the condo was perfect for our privacy and theirs. The views, location, stunning sunsets and numerous activities to keep u entertained is all u need for a relaxing vacation. If we return to the big island this is where we'll stay. We also will be vacationing at other properties that Peggy manages in the future on the other islands especially if there as nice as this one.

“Definitely Coming Back!”
Reviewed October 28, 2015 for a stay in October 2015

Stop...don't look any further....you have found your home away from home. This has been the very BEST condo we have ever rented and we want to come back. Peggy...thank you! You are very responsive and your home is lovely. From the interior decorating, to the lush gardens, tropical pool setting and the view from the lani over looking the golf course to the ocean beyond is perfect for watching the Hawaiian sunsets. 12A is definitely paradise and a perfect location in the Haili Kai resort. There was nothing that we thought off that we might need that wasn't supplied.

“Dream condo in paradise...”
Reviewed July 19, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

Place was top notch. We loved the decor, the cleanliness, and overall attention to details. As we told the owners, "Staying at their property has ruined us for we now dislike hotels." This is the second property we've stayed at with these owners and everything they do is first class.

“Truly a Treasure in Paradise”
Reviewed July 1, 2015 for a stay in June 2015

This was our first visit to the Big Island; and after extensive
research on TripAdvisor, I was drawn to Hali'i Kai, Unit 12
in Waikoloa for our week's vacation ~ truly a treasure in
paradise! From the outset, my interactions with owner,
Peggy, were pleasant. She was always available and
responsive to all questions about the area and the property.

What a surprise to land in Kailua-Kona Airport surrounded
by a moon-like lava landscape and to drive 18 miles south to
be welcomed by an oasis of lush vegetation, waterfalls, and
upscale shopping areas in Waikoloa. Hali'i Kai is a gated
community of lovely condominiums which are beautifully
landscaped, peaceful and quiet (unlike other dense condo
developments).

Opening the door to Unit 12A, we were immediately welcomed
by the stylish decor, spectacular vistas, and all the comforts of
home, including complimentary wine, beer, beverages, and
coffee. With meticulous attention to detail, Peggy has thought
of everything to make a visit to her condo comfortable and
memorable! Reviewers have covered the luxurious and
spacious living quarters, comfortable beds, large bathrooms,
top of the line linens, heavy duty front loading washer and
dryer with cleaning products, closet of aquatic equipment,
umbrellas, tennis racquets, games and books. The kitchen is
well-stocked for even the gourmet cook. We especially
appreciated having wi-fi, a computer and printer at our disposal.

Location of Unit 12A is unbeatable!! From our balcony,
view to the west of spectacular sunsets over the Pacific.
To the east, a view of Mauna Loa (the highest mountain on
earth when measured from the sea floor). And it is a short
walk to the clubhouse for fitness workout, a dip in the pool
or food and beverage. 12A is also right off the 7th hole
of the beach golf course.

My husband and I will be certain to request Unit 12A when we
return to the Big Island. We were also pleased that we stayed on
the west side of the island as we enjoyed sunshine every day. We
drove the two-hour trek to Hawaii Volcano National Park via
Hilo where it does receive a lot of precipitation. Fortunately,
the next day, we booked the 7:00 a.m. helicopter ride over
the volcanos from Pacific Helicopters. That same morning,
the helicopter ride from Hilo had been cancelled due to rain.
I apologize that my enthusiasm for Unit 12 A has resulted in
a lengthy review.

Reluctantly, we leave paradise and Hali'i Kai, but with wonderful
memories.
