I just returned a week ago after staying at Su’s condo and wanted to share my experience.   The last time Liz and I were in Hawaii was 30 years ago for our honeymoon. During the past 30 years we have raised 3 wonderful adults and decided it was time to treat ourselves.

Su’s golf course home is conveniently located about 20 minutes from the Kona Airport in the Waikoloa Beach Resort.   The area is beautifully developed with mature trees, colorful flowers and many wonderful areas to walk and explore.  It is a private home on the 3rd hole of the Waikoloa Beach Course.  We enjoyed watching the golfers while eating breakfast or sipping wine on the lanai.  We played the Beach course on Monday and enjoyed the discounted rate Su offers her guests. We had a wonderful dinner that evening at The Sansei Seafood and Sushi Bar which was a short walk across the street at the Queens Shopping Center.  The following day was our official anniversary date and we had a special dinner at Browns Beach House at Su’s recommendation.  We arrived early and enjoyed drinks and live entertainment while we watched a beautiful sunset at the Fairmont Orchid Hotel balcony.   The food, service, and ambiance at Browns Beach House was spectacular. They even gave us a free mud pie which was a nice surprise.  We spent the next day at the Hapuna Beach State Park and enjoyed the comfortable Tommy Bahama beach chairs and snorkel gear that was in the garage.  That evening we went to the Lava Lava Beach Club and had Mai Tais and appetizers and watched another beautiful sunset.  Make sure to get there early because a lot of people have the same idea.  The following day we did a road trip across the island to Hilo and visited Volcano National Park and walked thru the Lava Cave.  At the Visitors Center, we learned about the history of volcanos and how the islands were formed.  We splurged and did a helicopter tour over an active volcano and beautiful waterfalls.  That was the highlight of our trip.

I give Su my 5 star rating for the condition, location, and amenities offered with her golf course home.  The home was beautifully furnished with comfortable furniture, fast Wi-Fi, television with surround sound, and many nice extras.

Take it from me, you will be very happy staying at Su’s hawaiigolfcondo while in paradise.

TEX has been published in airline magazines, Sunset Magazine, Bon Apetit’ and many other publications, and the restaurant has been featured in numerous venues. So, come in and check out the covered open air patio and enjoy the view of the Pacific Ocean with all the sights and sounds of Hawaii!

Watch the world famous malasadas being hand made in the bakery from the viewing window.

Located just off of Hwy. 19 at mile marker 43 – Pakalana St.  Makai side (Ocean side) This little place serves many things but is known mostly for its malasadas.

Is it worth the drive from Waikoloa Beach Resort to have malasadas?  Oh yeah! Bavarian Cream is our absolute favorite.

These malasadas are the best on the island.  This is a great stop when going to Akaka Falls, Hawaii Tropical Botanic Gardens or Hilo.

A highly recommended spot to enjoy while staying at our hawaiigolfcondo!

The Big Island is the only place in Hawaii, and 1 of only 2 spots in the entire world where you get to swim with Manta Rays. They are an amazing species with a wingspan up to 16ft in length. Mantas don’t have teeth or stingers and are harmless to people. Enjoy the experience of lifetime as you watch the majestic creatures roll and glide right under you.

Manta rays can boast a wingspan up to 20 feet wide (6.1 meters) and are one of the largest fish in the ocean. Don’t worry; these gentle giants are completely harmless. Unlike stingrays, manta rays do not possess stingers or barbs on their tails and have no teeth. Instead, they suck in plankton with their wide, vacuum like ocean cleaner mouths.
