Grand Welcome Vacation Rentals
- English, Spanish
Amazing sunset and ocean views!
Clean property with excellent lanai and living room. Comfortable beds including bedding required to make the two twins into a king in the second bedroom. Great location to walk to A Bay and drive to nearby beaches. Updates would be great for the kitchen and bathrooms. Even though the appliances are old, they still functioned great. I loved all the light that flooded in to this third floor condo and would definitely stay there again. We left a nice beach umbrella for future guests to use.
Appliances all needed help-air cond,dishwash,washer, very stressful
Beautiful property grounds-I should have heeded the reviews about unit needing upgrade-very disappointing, Very Noisy air-especially difficult to sleep through. Wouldn’t subject my family to that again👎�🏼�
There wasn’t any laundry soap, and we were instructed to do laundry
before leaving. Hand soap supplied was used and re-wrapped-weird,
We were instructed to empty trash daily, not supplied with enough trash bags, not enough dishwasher soap to do dishes for the week, and sometimes the dishwasher wouldn’t finish it’s cycle.
Not a stress free stay.
The Vista property is really Exceptional.
Will be staying in a better unit next time.
We're sorry to hear that you did not enjoy your stay with us. Because we are a vacation rental rather than a hotel, we do not offer the same amenities. To prevent any tropical critters, we urge guests to take our the trash daily. Our team has been notified of the dish & hand soap & will have it restocked for our future guests. We apologize for the inconvenience
& hope to provide a better experience. Thank you!
We will be back!!
Everything was great there!! I have been Hawaii about 10 times, and usually rent a condo or a house, and this one was one of the BEST!! You will love there. This unit price was lower than others too. Great location, large, clean, flowers and birds are pretty, well maintained, beautiful view, big pool, two jacuzzies. The property is gated and extremely safe!!!! I was able to let children run around and go to the pool by themselves. About 5 min walk to Hilton Hotel, we enjoyed walking around Hilton, encountered some fish, turtles, even dolphins!! Went to a luau there too. At first, I was going to book a Hilton room, but it’s too small and no kitchen and too expensive. I am so glad that I booked this rental!!! Short walk to a beach (very rocky with corals and lava rocks, but beautiful!!) and saw at least 6-7 turtles swimming around or laying on the beach. (From the condo, before Hilton's parking, take the walk way on the left, when you reach the beach, about 10 steps to the left, look in the shallow water, turtles were there every day. If you want to swim there, I recommend bringing water shoes and go in the morning.) Short drive to many beautiful sandy beaches. ABay was 5 min, it was nice to do snorkeling. Hapuna Beach was nice too, snorkeling was soso there. I loved Kua Bay Beach, it's about 20 min drive from there. Snorkeling was fantastic! and kids enjoyed boogie boarding. Most grocery shopping were done at the ABC store in Queens Shopping mall (5 min drive). We went to Costco too, about 45 min drive (gasoline was cheaper there! You need membership card). While we were staying, the Big Island got hit by the hurricane Lane, but we got only light rain and wind. I guess this area is storm-free because of the mountains blocks them?? The property had plenty of room towels and beach towels. We took day trips to everywhere during the stay (Kona, Punaluu, Hilo, and Waipio). If you are a snorkeler, you MUST take a manta ray night snorkeling tour in Kona!!!!!!!
Great place to stay close to shopping and the beach.
Awesome complex. Condo unit has a view of the ocean. The condo is pretty much standard for the area. Not sure what the one issue was about the couch written in another review. Yes it’s older but it’s a huge sectional which was great. It’s wasnt as bad as previously reviewed. Of course you can rent a condo for $800 a night and get a couch that probably is better but for the price and value of the condo it’s great. Had everything we needed. It does have an amazing Lani. The best part about it is the master bedroom has its own little patio area that we hung out on early in the morning drinking coffee. It was really nice to have a little bit of seclusion when you are in Hawaii with kids. The complex has really nice gas grills and a great pool. From the unit you can see the pool. It’s a top floor condo which I would highly recommend! We really enjoyed our stay there and my family did too!
We have stayed at the Vistas every year for 13 years, and this was not our best experience.
The condo has great potential, a great view and it could be faboulos. But it has not been mantained, upgraded and looked after like other units that are cheaper/same cost. Please give this great property some love and a new sifa, it could be great!!
Aloha Vale, Thank you for staying with us. We have passed these notes along to the owner and hope to host you again. Please let us know if we can help you with any future bookings. Mahalo!
