It’s hard to imagine being unhappy here. These are some of the most impressively appointed condos we’ve seen, and it’s the only gated complex in Waikoloa that’s next to a beach. Rooms are richly furnished with high-end appliances in the gourmet kitchens, African mahogany trim and high ceilings throughout, travertine floors, granite countertops, a wall of glass that’ll fold away from the large lanai (and its separate kitchen), making it part of the living space, large soaking tubs and separate showers in the master baths and so much more. Even the closets light up automatically when you walk in. Although décor varies from unit to unit, we didn’t see any that weren’t outstanding. The pool area has a sand bottom children’s pool with its own waterfall, but it can get crowded during busy seasons. First-floor units are the least expensive because views might be encroached upon by a home in front of you. (Third-floor units have best views, especially buildings 4–8, 10 and 12.) Private elevators in many. An easy place to love. 2/2 units are 1,270–1,554 sq. ft. The 3/2, 3/3 or 3/4 units are 1,554–2,147 sq. ft. 5- or 7-night minimum.
