We absolutely loved your condo! It had everything we could possibly need, and was by far the cleanest condo we have ever stayed in! There was more road noise than we expected, but that was worth being able to have the windows open to let the cool breeze in. Much better than listening to an A/C. We will definitely be back again. Hopefully sooner than later 😉

Great place to stay.
Lovely, very clean, comfortable condo. Had everything we needed and everything worked well. Unexpected downside was the significant traffic noise from the street just off the lanai that we found intrusive. This significantly limited our enjoyment of the lanai and we kept the sliding glass door closed to reduce the noise. This is the only reason we gave 4 stars. Everything else was great and we had easy communication with the owner and housekeeper.
We enjoyed our stay at the condo. We really loved having two separate bedrooms.
We enjoyed our stay at the condo. We really loved having two separate bedrooms so our son could sleep in his own room. We liked that both bedrooms had to sliding doors to let in fresh air. There were a couple of nights where it was too hot and we needed to turn on the window air conditioner however they were very very loud. We were also somewhat taken aback that though we stayed at the condo for 12 days, we were only left two spare rolls of toilet paper. When I inquired with the owner about this, she said we were responsible for purchasing anything above and beyond that amount of toilet paper. Considering how much we spent to stay at the condo over 12 days, this seemed pretty petty to us. Our only other concern was that the swimming pool in the complex was extremely cold and not well he heated, which did not allow us to use it as much as we would’ve preferred. We did appreciate how well stocked the kitchen was in terms of appliances and utensils in the quality of the appliances. The location is excellent with easy access to restaurants and shopping.
Very spacious, very clean and confortable
We loved our stay in Debra’s condo.We are 2 adults with 2 children (8 and 12). The condo is spacious, very clean and beatiful. The kids were so happy about the twin beds and their own bathroom. It is so closed from a KTA grocery and a gas station. We visited the north and went to a free Hula shows 2 times (10min from the condo). Mahalo Debra!
The condominium location is very convenient to reach all parts of the island in the least amount of time whether it be Hilo, North Kohala, Kailua-Kona, Mauna Kea summit, and most of the best beaches. Even when it is hot and humid at lower elevations it is usually pleasant here and if the trades are blowing it's fantastic. Owner is very responsive and the on-site manager, Ken, is a jewel. Remodel to kitchen and bathrooms is quite nice. Kitchen is well kitted out with typical cooking needs. The grocery across the street is large and well stocked and there's a Lava Java cafe and other restaurants in the center too. Great view of Mauna Kea from the front landing of the condo when it's clear.
There is only one real drawback here, and it has been mentioned by others. It is the reason for 4-stars instead of 5. There is a 4-lane road right in front of the lanai which currently serves as the only access to the residential area and new construction beyond. Thankfully, it's usually quiet at night when the commuting hours are over. Speed limit is posted at 25mph but the locals generally ignore it. We observed motorists going at least 40. There is a crosswalk (with yellow flags to use) if you take the short walk to the shopping area. Be extra careful, especially if you go after dark. Our daughter almost got hit when one motorist stopped and one in the far lane did not. As to parking, the description indicates parking for one car. DO NOT come with more than one, there is NO place to put it legally within reasonable walking distance.
The Hills is conveniently located within walking distance of Waikoloa Village's only grocery store. Jump in your car and it's only a ten or fifteen minute drive to a beautiful beach. The golf course is so close, it can be seen from your lanai. Unfortunately, the view from the lanai also takes in the Village's busy, main road. The problem is the sound of the cars going by, not the view, which is actually very nice.
If you're the type to be out exploring the Island all day, this fact shouldn't be too big of a deal. On the other hand, if you're like my elderly parents, who ended up spending most of their month long visit just hanging out at 'home', you might find the road noise to be something of a problem.
The condo's ceilings are beyond vaulted; they might better be described as cathedral. Their great height, along with the help of a giant sized ceiling fan, keeps the living area comfortable at the hottest part of the day. Mind you, it was only March and summers here can be far hotter. The upstairs bedrooms got to be warm, but nothing the window-mounted ac units couldn't handle. Then there are the winds that Waikoloa is famous for, just slide open the glass doors off the bedrooms and enjoy the cross breeze.
The condo is on the second floor, just two short flights of stairs up to the front door. While I'd been concerned about this on account of my elderly parents, I should have been more worried about it being a two-story unit. Especially considering there is no bathroom on the main floor. I don't suppose the young and the fit will even notice such a thing, but elderly visitors might.
Recently remodeled, the condo is attractive and clean, although the windows could have used a good cleaning. The kitchen is well-equipped for four people, including even a rice cooker and crock pot. Nicely furnished throughout, though an easy chair in the living room and maybe a small dining table would be an improvement. The outdoor dining table was appreciated, as were the stools along the kitchen counter, but they don't quite make up for a table indoors.
My parents were mostly pleased with this accommodation. My mother got very sick during her stay and this meant that they spent more time in the condo than they might have otherwise. The length of their stay and then the particulars of their circumstance likely influenced their experience of the place. It's a good vacation rental needing only a few minor tweaks to make it even better.
