About Nicholas Murphy
We are California grown with two boys. We also love the Sierras and spend our winters skiing in Shaver Lake and rock climbing in Yosemite. We are a unique mix of nature and technology; spending time away from it all in the wilderness to playing Minecraft with the boys for hours on end. Must find diamonds.
Nicholas Murphy purchased this Condo in 2007
Why Nicholas Murphy chose Waikoloa
We love the Big Island due to it's local atmosphere and small community charm. We found the location of these units to be ideal for our family. It's surrounded by restaurants, activities, beaches, golf, trails, and coffee... especially the coffee. This unit in particular we feel has an amazing location within the villas. It's away from the roads, and noisy areas, and has a large grassy area in back for our boys and their friends to have water gun wars, or play kickball, or to run out on the golf course at sunset.
What makes this Condo unique
One of our most cherished moments on trips to our home is the first few days after we arrive and we are still adjusting to the 2-3 hour time difference. We wake up before sunrise, Wife makes two steamy hot mochas, and we sit on the lanai as the sun rises over the volcano. The birds are out pecking in the grass. The maintenance crew is working on the golf course off in the distance, and even though it's 5:30 am, it's still 80 degrees!!
100% refund if canceled at least 60 days before arrival date.
Wonderful Place to stay!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this property and wanted to leave a review reflecting our experience. We are a family of four and found this condo to exceed our expectations. We had ample space and fantastic air conditioning (which was helpful for us to adjust from our hoe environment of Alaska). Beds were comfy and linens were super soft and high quality. And-- the lanai! was terrific looking out onto the grounds and flora & fauna. Kids loved the pool! Many things right there at our fingertips that were so helpful for a great trip - snorkling stuff, boogie boards, and even beach towels. Handy things for family life around the condo too. The owners were great to communicate with as well. Can't say enough nice things. Sure hope to come back!!
Great unit and location
Unit is exactly as described in a great location and very well equipped. The boogie boards, beach chairs, and cooler were a great addition. The pools were never busy and neither was the BBQ by the pool. The master bed is on the firm side and the sofa bed is best suited to younger children. The nearby grocery stores are very expensive so stop at Costco when you land or head up to Foodland by the Fairmount for more reasonable prices.
Amazing!!! A beautiful condo in paradise!!
This condo was gorgeous!!! Beautifully decorated and fully stocked to meet all our needs.
The complex is quiet and the hosts thought of everything we might need to make our vacation a memorable one. Plenty of room for a family of 4 and located next door to amazing shopping and restaurants. We loved walking across the street to grab lunch and our morning coffee or dinner after a long day of activities. We had a few questions and Nicholas went out of his way to be responsive and helpful during our stay. If you are considering renting a condo during your stay on the Big Island, I promise you won't go wrong with this one! Five stars all the way!
We had such a wonderful stay at this property! Owners were awesome to deal with and got back to us very quickly with any questions we had. We’ve been to The Big Island a few times and stayed at this resort for most of them & we love it! Condo was very well stocked with all things needed and pictures are exactly how it looks - beautiful! Thanks so much for the stay - we can’t wait to come back!
This accommodation was excellent for our stay at the Big Island. It was nice that is on the ground level. It is within walking distance to restaurants at Queens' MarketPlace and Kings' Shops. It was quiet and there are two small pools available for guests within the gated condominium property. It is great to walk within Waikoloa Beach Resort. We would HIGHLY recommend this property.
Upscale condo in the beautiful Waikoloa Villas Resort
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in this upscale 2 bedroom, 2 bath condo. It was even more beautiful in person than it appeared in the photos. The condo was very well equipped with everything we needed to make meals in and it was very nice to have some extras supplied like plastic wrap, baggies, foil, cooking oils, spices, and some condiments leftover in the fridge. The resort property is gorgeous too with well manicured grounds, pool, and BBQ area. It is in a gated complex and its great that the entire property is smoke free. It was really nice to have a garage too to park our vehicle in to keep it cool and the garage had lots of beach chairs, boogie boards, pool noodles, snorkelling equipment etc. for our use.
We didn’t have a problem finding the condo which another reviewer had mentioned. We followed Nicholas’ instructions and once we found building L it was pretty straight forward. Nicholas was great to communicate with and always got back to us very quickly. The only issue we had during our stay was that the dishwasher did not work properly and either needs to be repaired or replaced. We reported this to Nicholas, so hopefully that will be taken care of.
We would definitely stay here again if we visit the Big Island.
We are so glad you had a wonderful time. Every year we try to make some small changes to keep our home dynamic and stocked with everything we think our guests could use. We also found the issue with the dishwasher, it was clogged jets. We do appreciate you bringing that to our attention.
If you are traveling with children and want to have a couples night out, we recommend Big Island Nannies. We have the information in our condo folder. We used to use them every year for our pre-teen kids and it was amazing. The kids loved it and we feel our children were in great hands. They are old enough now that they "don't need a babysitter now Daaad"
