    We booked a 2 week/2 island vacation through Costco for our 20th anniversary. Fairwayway Villas was our home for the 2nd week of our adventure. After spending the first week living out of a suitcase in a hotel room, it was nice to spread out a little and have a closet and dresser. Also a huge plus to have a washer and dryer to use - this allowed us to pack light. The condo was clean and comfortable. We were in unit J2, which is a ground floor unit. If I stayed there again, I might want an upstairs unit. The people above us were walking around every morning by about 6 or 630am and must have been wearing hard soled shoes. Sounded like they were doing laps around their unit. This was not a huge issue for us, but something that I noticed. There was a centipede on the kitchen floor the first night, but my pre-trip research had prepared me for that possibility so I got rid of it and it was no big deal. The pool and hot tub were very nice, as was the grilling area. It was also nice having a designated parking spot (ours was a carport). Our patio faced the 4th fairway of the Waikoloa Beach Golf Course and we enjoyed watching the golfers in the morning while having our coffee. We ended up golfing that course, and liked it. It was nice being close to both the Queens and Kings shops, but we didn't spend much time there. I guess that the kitchen was well enough equipped, but we didn't use most of it. We only had a week so explore the Big Island, so we didn't spend much time sitting around the condo. There were a few games there, and we played scrabble late one evening. There was a monopoly game too, but it was missing pieces. We rented the unit as a one bedroom/one bath. It is actually a 2 bedroom/2 bath, but when you only book one bedroom, they just lock the other bedroom and bath. There were plenty of pillows and bath towels, and also 6 extra towels to use for the pool. These do not get replaced during your stay, but 6 pool towels for 2 people for a week is more than enough. It was hotter than usual while we were there. Mid 90's every day. We were told that opening the windows and door would let in a nice breeze and we wouldn't need the AC. This was not the case. We tried that and it was just way too hot. We felt the location was decent for exploring the island and we were able to get around quite easily. The Ironman World Competition was happening in Kona, so there were road closures one day. A lot of people were complaining about that, but it happens there every year and we were aware of it before we booked. I guess I don't understand not looking into area events before booking a trip. We enjoyed walking out to the highway to see the biking portion of the competition and later driving to Kona to be at the finish line. This is a resort area, so it is a little more expensive to eat and buy groceries. If we return to the Big Island, I would consider staying here again, but might stay farther south near Kona.

    I was pleased with our condo rental at the Fairway Villas for 7 nights. We had a one bedroom with a pull out couch so it slept 3 adults comfortably. The condo was clean, spacious and had a nice little patio with outdoor furniture and a view of the Fairway Gold Course. It was comfortably air conditioned, had a full eat in kitchen, as a dining table for 6 and a bar/counter top with three chairs. We had one bathroom with a shower, tub, big walk in closet and private toilet area. Only con was the bathroom was of the only bedroom so the individual who slept on the couch had to enter the bedroom to use the bathroom. This could be for someone who didn't want anyone entering their room during their sleep if they needed to use the bathroom. We had one toilet bowl issue and were accommodated quickly with by a maintenance person within 15 minutes of calling the office. The only negative during out stay was the pool area was closed for renovations, which we were aware of and it reopened on the day before we left. We inquired about extra tables and chairs for a family get together and we were told we could be accommodated if needed. The grounds were beautiful, the condo was close (within walking distance) as well as driving distance to the rental office. We were also very close, again within walking distance to two different shopping areas as well as the beach. We were pleasantly surprised to find a little mini golf course on the way to the shopping area closest to the fairway villas.

    THEY HAVE A GREAT POOL BUT YOU CAN'T USE IT

    Booked our stay at the Waikoloa Fairway Villas with Vacasa and everything was fine until we went to use the swimming pool and hot tub but they were down for maintenance. This is the highlight of the property and was tauted on the Vacasa website. The maintenance man said Vacasa was notified months ago about this and he didn't know why renters were not told of this before renting. Vacasa offered me $72 back then $172 but I turned them both down because this was the reason we booked the place. No other properties were offered to change to either. Very disappointed.

    Great Choice

    3 bedroom/ 2 bath - Unit I-34 Very comfortable for 4 adults - loved having a full kitchen. Ceramic tile throughout, cold A/C, & Tropical setting. The booking company called and texted several times to be sure we were happy and make sure we didn’t need anything. This complex was spotless for the 10 days we were there. The six Weber Gas Grills looked like they had never been used. No problems with parking at all.

    Perfect Condo

    Our 2-bedroom/2-bath villa was super comfortable; really liked the place. Enjoyed the pool, exercise facility, and outdoor BBQs; the villas are close to shops (Queens Shops and King's Shops) and great beaches (A-Bay; Manua Kea; Hapuna).
