About Sherry Skari

My husband, Lars, is a management consultant and I (Sherry) am an elementary school teacher. We have two adult daughters and we live in a suburb of Los Angeles, California. Lars has been dreaming about owning a place in Hawaii for years. I felt it was a lovely, but impractical dream. However, in 2009 as home prices dropped, we felt that maybe this dream could become a reality. We looked at several homes in different complexes on the Kohala coast. In the end, we chose the Waikoloa Beach Villas, because of the great location next to shops and restaurants, its low density, new construction, and spacious interior. We welcome you to our second home! E komo mai!

Sherry Skari purchased this condo in 2009

Why Sherry Skari chose Puako

We selected this town home, because of its great location close to many wonderful amenities of the Waikoloa Beach Resort, its size, and the beautiful tropical landscaping and pool. Our two daughters love going to the stores and getting ice cream whenever they want at the Queen's Market Place and the King's Shops. No car needed! The Big Island has so many things to do, without the large tourist crowds, and the snorkeling is fantastic!

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy the beautiful white sand beaches of A-Bay, Hapuna and Mauna Kea beach. We love that although we are in the heart of the Waikoloa Beach Resort, it is quiet and uncrowded. We love going coffee tasting in the Kona district and visiting the farmer's market in Hilo. There is a wonderful secluded pathway between the Marriott Hotel and the Hilton Waikoloa with stunning ocean/shore views. (Start at the Marriott sand volleyball court and see an opening in the bushes. Wear good shoes.) Once you get to the Hilton, check out Dolphin Quest, and take a free ride on the Hilton boat which gives you a fun overview of this enormous hotel.

Wonderful Tropical Haven!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was a perfect fit for our group of 4 adults and 2 teenage boys. It was tastefully decorated, light, bright, spacious, clean and quiet. Great location across from the Queens shops & restaurants & the beautiful A- Bay Beach & delicious Lava Lava Beach Club. The beach gear in the garage was much appreciated, as were all the beach towels & cooler. Not to mention the Hilton pool pass that we used twice.

All in all a great place to stay!

Thank you Sherry!

Owner's Response: Thanks so much for this great review, Liz! We're so glad you took advantage of all the amenities and enjoyed the location close to the shops, restaurants, and beaches. It's nice when people feel like they can take an evening stroll along the tiki lights and just hang out and eat ice cream in the warm night air. So glad you had a good time! Hope you come back again someday. Mahalo, Liz!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this villa! Location: close to Hilton Waikoloa for the water slides! Close to Hapuna beach and Kiholo Bay (swim with the turtles).

Location: Queens Marketplace was right across from the condo. Great to pick up bento and malasadas!!!

Location: Right next to the gym and swimming pool. Perfect for the kids, perfect for adults.

Location: Close to the trash (so much bottles of water, beer and wine.

The condo was spacious, clean, and well stocked, which we really appreciated.

The management were responsive to our requests for late checkout.

Thank you for making our return to Hawaii special. We will be back!!

Mahalo!

Just perfect!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time in the condo. It easily hosts two families with kids, the condo was fully equipped with everything one needs for the stay, also for beach visits (even extra sets of snorkels and fins), it is beautifully furnished, conveniently located, just perfect. The recommendations provided by the owners (Skari's top ten things to do on Big Island) were very helpful, we particularly loved the Kauna'oa Beach where one can swim with turtles. Mahalo for a wonderful time on Big Island, we will definitely come back!

정말 만족했습니다

  • 5 of 5

양가부모님과 함께한 대가족 여행이었습니다. 이 전 힐로 숙소보다 훨씬 쾌적하고 정말 없는 것이 없다 할 정도로 다 구비되어 있었습니다. 특히 아기용 침대, 하이체어, 부스터, 레고 듀플로, 각종 보드게임, 물놀이 용품 등이 있어 정말 편리했습니다. 마트도 바로 앞에 있고 힐튼 베케이션 클럽 이용권도 유용하게 잘 사용하였습니다. 감사합니다!

It was fantastic! Thank you so much♥
