With a budget of $600,000 and under, finding a perfect resort lifestyle on the Big Island can be a challenge. Living close to a swimming spot and a lounging beach is the main reason to buy a resort home or condo. Not only are you close to the ocean, but the climate zone is considered semi-desert, so it does not rain often, and the temperature is a dreamy 74 degrees year-round — perfect for enjoying the Big Island outdoor lifestyle.
Aneaho’omalu Bay Beach Access
Waikoloa Beach Resort has a beautiful beach called Aneaho’omalu Bay (also known as A-Bay). It is a great family-friendly beach and is known for its incredible sunsets and kite surfers. Even though the resort has a beach, it can be fun to drive less than ten minutes to the famous Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea Beach. Both beaches are the best beaches on the Big Island, and people worldwide come to enjoy them.
Waikoloa Beach Villas
Waikoloa Beach Villas has 2- and 3-bedroom condos. The 3-bedroom units are currently priced under $6K, and the complex has three floors, elevators, two pools, and some excellent golf views. Some units even have a garage. One of my favorite features is the great separation between the bedrooms giving you space and comfort. The community location is the key to the condo’s successful short term rentals and popular with return guests.
Known for its strong concrete construction, wrap-around lanais, and a 75′ heated lap pool, the Vista Waikoloa condos are popular for those looking for a second home or island retreat. The Vista community is also known for its group gatherings (before Covid) and community events. This community is a place to make friends and connect with your neighbors. Many owners are upgrading their units’ interiors, and it’s fun to see the remodels and some show-stopping bathrooms and kitchens renovated.
Location, location, location. Fairway Villas is within walking distance to both the Kings and Queens shopping centers, and Anaehoomalu Bay (also known as A-Bay), and its beautiful sandy beach. The amenity center has a heated pool, views of King’s lake, and sparkling night lights from the Kings shopping center. The Home Owner Association dues include extras such as 200 cable channels, internet, domestic calls, and an onsite manager.
These townhomes are upstairs and downstairs units with built-in garages and an extra deeded parking space. With 17-foot-high vaulted ceilings, natural light is in abundance in these condos. The community has two large pools, a fitness center, a tennis court, and outdoor BBQ areas for all to enjoy. This complex is a bit far from the Queens and Kings shops, but it is near Mai Grill, known for their bacon, great food, and a full bar.
Shores at Waikoloa
The Shores are known for having enormous lanais. You truly get to enjoy the outdoor lifestyle on them. Even though this complex is the oldest in the community, built in 1986, the interiors’ spaciousness and spectacular lanai space make them very special. The Shores are located a short walk to the Hilton hotel and the Queens and Kings shops.
Specializing in Resort Properties
Purchasing a condo on the Big Island can be exciting and overwhelming all at the same time. Working with a real estate agent who knows the community’s pros and cons will help you feel confident in your real estate decision. I specialize in resort properties and would be honored to help you find your piece of paradise.
