About Darin Thomas
Aloha and E Komo Mai! My name is Darin Thomas with Hawaii Real Estate & Investments Property Management. I work with the proud owners of this condominium and collectively we are here to make your stay in paradise an experience that you will cherish for a lifetime. I am a Kamahaole. Part local islander as in Kamaaina, as my mom was born and raised on the Big Island. Part Haole as my father was born in the continental U.S.. I've lived about half my life in Hawaii and the remainder in California, so I understand the needs of those on Hawaii time as well as those who live life in the fast lane. I have an excellent knowledge of the island and can give you assistance on virtually any topic you have an interest. If not, I'll get you the answers you seek.

A Great Stay
As advertised, the condo was very clean, probably the cleanest we have ever stayed in. It was tastefully decorated and well taken care of. AC was sensitive and worked very well, beach gear was sufficient and in good condition. Beds were comfortable and the sofa felt fresh. We had a great stay and will definitely return.
One minor complaint: After we left the condo, we had questions about the property damage protection fee and asked Darin 3 times by sending messages through VRBO but did not get any response. We eventually called VRBO and got the answer.
Thank you for taking the time to review our condo. We appreciate the kind things you had to say about your experience. We hope to have you as our guests again in the future. I took a quick look at our communication threads as they were extensive during your stay, although we did answer each message in a detailed manner immediately upon receipt, providing you with detailed answers to all your questions, I do acknowledge that your question regarding the refund of the insurance deposit wasn't addressed properly, although the other questions in the emails were. Please accept our sincerest apology for this oversight. I will personally make sure that in the future all responses address all points brought up in the emails so know question is left unanswered.
Quiet piece of paradise
We enjoyed our stay at the Fairway Villas. The location was very quiet and a short 10 min walk to the Queen’s Marketplace and about 5 to the King’s. We enjoyed the view from the balcony overlooking the golf course, mountains and watching the palm trees sway from the trade winds. Also the grounds are beautifully kept. My kids enjoyed having separate bedrooms with one staying in the loft and the other downstairs. It was great to use the beach amenities from towels to boogie boards, um fella and chairs.
On another note...the AC unit is extremely loud on the balcony. It was hard to enjoy meals or sit there for too long when it revved up. and the kitchen could use a drying rack for hand washing dishes. The sheets had to be rewashed on two of the beds upon arrival. They just didn’t smell fresh.
Aloha.... Thank you for taking the time to review our property and providing us with feedback regarding your stay.
Yes, the a/c compressor is located on the balcony and perhaps it should have been placed on either the roof or the ground floor. If I had built the place, that's what I would have done. Most of the time our guests simply turn it off the a/c while enjoying the lanai. The unit is well insulated and does a good job of staying cool while off.
Our standard policy is to have all linens, towels, blanket cleaning prior to your arrival without exception. I will personally investigate this further.
We will add a drying rack to the list of items in the unit. Thank you for your input.
We hope that you'll stay with us again in the future.
Really enjoyed our stay at this property. The home was very clean, well appointed, conveniently located. We would stay here again.
This was a very well appointed condo with everything we needed for a great stay. Couldn’t be any better.
This was our first trip to the Big Island in over 10 years. Waikoloa Beach Resort was everything we hoped it would be - beautiful, convenient, and relaxing. This unit was very comfortable and well taken care of. Loved the golf course view - Nene’s, goats, and golfers! We had plenty of room for visiting family and the close proximity of the pool and beach was great for the grandkids. I highly recommend this area and this unit. Darin was extremely helpful, nice, and easy to work with. Only bummer was that the filtered water in the fridge didn’t work. Fingers crossed that it’s fixed before our next stay.
Great condo. Close to beach, shopping golf course, and other hotels. Condo was very comfortable and roomy. Would recommend this condo.
