Our interests include scuba diving, hiking, outrigger paddling, kayaking, cooking, reading, music, film, the arts, and green living. We are young at heart and we welcome folks of all backgrounds. Please don't hesitate to let us know what we can do to help make your vacation the absolute best!
Tracey and Jim Gilmore purchased this Condo in 2017
Why Tracey and Jim Gilmore chose Kohala Coast
As residents of the Big Island, we chose the Fairway Villas at Waikoloa for its serenity, convenience, lovely landscaping, and super relaxing vibe. Located just 20 minutes north of the Kona Airport, close enough - but away from the bustle of Kona town, the condo is conveniently situated to take in all the incredible beauty, diversity, and fantastic activities available on Hawaii Island. We love our condo because of the comfortable layout, and the sweet lanai with lovely lake, golf and sunset views.

PERFECT LOCATION, NICE VIEW!
We loved the location and ease of access to this condo, the view is nice looking out over the course and a small lake. We would def look at staying here again..thank you!
What sets this rental apart is the property management. Yes, it has all of the necessary items to be a very good rental. There are more than enough items to cook with or use on your vacation. It is furnished nicely and a good location... BUT IT IS THEIR SERVICE THAT SET THEM APART!!!
The question is what happens when something goes wrong..... Tracey (property Manager and Owner) went a step above.
Our AC for the unit died on a hot and muggy Labor Day weekend day. Tracey somehow got the AC guys to come out o the very next day (on Labor Day no less) and fix it!!!! She made everything right with the unit and our stay!!! Yes, I would rent again from them as their efforts show what you can expect when something happens.
We were 3 weeks in Hawaii, we rented 4 differents condo... Tracey and Jim condo was the best ! Everything you need in the condo, efficient communication with the owner.
Mahalo for the excellent week my family and I had at your place.
Best Place I’ve Ever Stayed!
My wife, two teenage daughters and I had a wonderful time at Tracie and Jim’s condo. It is very clean, comfortable, and relaxing. The full kitchen made it a great place to store and prepare meals. It is well-stocked with condiments and kitchenware, and has a full size refrigerator with freezer. Convenient washer / dryer. It even has several water-sport accessories to use like snorkeling gear, boogie boards, noodles, beach toys, and a cooler. Air conditioning works great. Big table for dining. Nice and relaxing views from the balcony. Check-in process very smooth. We enjoyed hanging out here in the evenings after being out and about during the day - comfortable seating, solid wi-fi, and full cable tv in the living room. Nicely decorated. Also a great location for our interests. Short walk (or 2/3 minute drive) to Queens Marketplace and beautiful A-Bay Beach. Short drive to other beaches in the area. Easy drive to Kona. Overall, this was the best place our family has stayed while on vacation. Highly recommend!
Texans Trip to Hawaii
Your Fairway Villas Condo is beautifully decorated and perfectly situated. Being between Queens Marketplace and Kings Shops the lanai overlooks Kings Lake. The fridge was stocked with condiments and the pantry with staples, medicine cabinets had first aid, one closet was filled with beach equipment and another with books. We didn’t have time to read because we were only minutes from A Beach and a very short drive to Hāpuna Beach. We rode horses at Dehana Ranch in Waimea (working Ranch that gives guest rides),zip lined Akaka Falls and toured the Seahorse Ranch(Ocean Rider).My granddaughters, my husband and I enjoyed our time on the Big Island 🌺
Amazing 50th birthday Celebration in Paradise
Tracey was so responsive, welcoming and the process to reserve our 2 weeks in their beautiful condo was so smooth and non complicated.
Checking in was so simple and our Welcome Basket with a wonderful note, beautiful card, Kona coffee, chocolates and a very yummy pineapple truly set the tone for our stay.
It felt like our home away from home.
This trip for me and my family was so special and we were so blessed and lucky to have stayed in Tracey and Jim’s gorgeous condo.
It was so beautiful, clean and in the most perfect location. Watching the Duckies Race in the lake on the 4th of July from our balcony was so fun and the fireworks from our Lanai was spectacular!
We already are trying to plan our trip for next summer.
Thank you again Tracey and Jim for this opportunity to return to our favorite island and see our family and friends that live in Waimea.
We can’t wait to return.
Until next time, sending Aloha from the Pierce Ohana
