Beautiful Villa One is completely new construction built inside the framework of The Shores Condominium Villas fronting Golf/Ocean perimeter. The surface waters of the open ocean around Hawaii range from 77 °F (25 °C) between late February and early April, to a maximum of 83 °F (28 °C) in late September or early October. With water temperatures this mild for hundreds of miles around, the air that reaches Hawaii is neither very hot nor very cold. The water temperature is wonderful for swimming year round.

The owners have explored the Big Island for over twenty years and look forward to sharing their knowledge and favorite places. We live on island full time so no worries if any services are required. Looking forward to spreading the Big Island Aloha with our guests.

Mahalo for looking at Villa One. Join the experience of the Big Island Paradise.

About Bitsy Cavanaugh

We are active in outrigger canoeing, snorkeling, body boarding, kayaking and hiking. Have traveled the world, it is here where we discovered our own paradise on the warm sunny coast of the Big Island Of Hawaii. Please come and enjoy our beautiful world.

Bitsy Cavanaugh purchased this condo in 2015

Why Bitsy Cavanaugh chose Waikoloa

Since 1989 we have owned property on the Big Island and have been full time residents since 2001. VillaOne was the local residence of the original developer of the Waikoloa Beach Resort. Purchased from his estate, VillaOne was completely rebuilt within the framework of The Shores Condominium. Luxurious upgrades such as travertine stone floors throughout, custom crown moldings, top of the line german-engineered Thermador built in stainless steel appliances, upgraded kohler bathroom fixtures, granite wine bar, which would never be placed in standard condominiums, complement the spacious layout and golf and ocean views of this prime property. And it sits on a small knoll away from the noise of the resort traffic--feeling like a private personal oasis in the midst of a busy amenity filled resort. When we saw Villa One, we both knew it was special, private luxurious home we could be proud of to share with our guests, friends and family.

What makes this condo unique

Villa One offers the ideal location on the Big Island, uniquely centered in one of the finest resorts with the best climate in all the Hawaiian Islands. Usually dry and sunny, Waikoloa Beach Resort receives 6-10 inches of rain a year, while other areas of the Big Island receive 60 to 120 inches of rain a year. With our fabulous landscaping, flowering plants and trees, groves of Palms and koi ponds, It truly feels like a tropical paradise, evoking the peace and beauty of Old Hawaii.

A special place for someone special.

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect!!!!

Aloha I was born and raised on the Islands and when i was in my teens there was a girl that was very special to me and I think I was special to her. We used to be together all the time. Then one day she said she had to leave her father was in the military and they were getting transferred back to the mainland. She was sad to have to go and i was sad to see her go. That was over thirty years ago. We stayed in touch with one another but as time went on staying in touch became fewer and feather apart mostly texting by now. Then one day someone at the civil defense accidentally sent out a message that brought fear to everyone. The news about what happened reached the mainland where she seen it on tv she sent me a text asking if everything is okay? I replayed with a text back that everything was fine. From that point on we started texting each other a lot then that turned into talking on the phone and that's when we realized just how much time has past and how great it would be to see each other again. From that moment we were making plans to see each other once again. In my late twenty I lived on the Big Island for a few years and was telling her how special it was there so we planed on the Big Island is where we would reunite. After a lot of searching I finely found a special place for us to stay. I filled out the reservation form and right away Bitsy got back with me and thru emails i explained why this was going to be so special I also asked if it would be possible to have some flowers to greet us when we opened the front door. I ask Bitsy if she could help me with that and with out hesitation said yes. When we got there and open the front door it was amazing as we made are way in we were in absolute awe everything was perfect!!!!! When we thought our dreams of seeing each other again were starting to fade away like the years that gone by, to a dream that came true. We loved it. We could't have found a better place. We are planning a return trip in six months.

We loved staying in your condo. It has everything imaginable.

  • 5 of 5

We put the boogie boards to good use at Hapuna Beach. We enjoyed the turtles in the evening at Waikoloa Beach. We looked at the incredible starry sky from lanai, back yard, and golf course. Lavaman was on and we ran in the Sunset 5k Fun Run. Most days we were so busy, it was easy to grab burgers, fishnchips, or pizza at Tropics across the street. So convenient and inexpensive. We went to volcano and recommend getting up early--very early to see the glow. Your recommendation to visit early in trip when we were up anyway was great. In fact, we liked all your personalized info from best bets at your favorite restaurants to pacing ourselves on your suggested day trips. Thanks. We'd like to come back.

Gorgeous Big Island Get Away

  • 5 of 5

Look no further! This condo is ideally situated near Waikoloa beach; Kings and Queens' shops; and local brew house. It offers absolute privacy, serene surroundings and luxurious amenities. The kitchen is modern and equipped with high-end appliances. The suite is newly renovated with absolutely everything you will need. It suits two couples because both bedrooms are equally spacious and well appointed. The ensuite bathrooms are also identical with soaker tubs and large walk in showers. The owner (Bitsy) is friendly and very helpful, and you know she wants you to have a good stay.

We highly recommend this condo,

Judi and Colin

Cleanest, best equipped and most comfortable accommodation that we have enjoyed anywhere

  • 5 of 5

Cudos to Bitsy and Ric on the cleanliness and comfort of their Villa. Great location for everything, including whiling away time on the lanai and catching the sunset. The Villa is so well equipped all you need is your food and beverage. Bitsy and Ric are great hosts and keep you informed on local activities (really enjoyed Canoe Club Luau). We have been visiting Hawaii (Big Island) for almost 30 years and felt right at home in Villa One. Enjoyed 3 weeks of relaxing downtime and will be back next year. Thanks Bitsy and Ric!

Wow! We were not expecting everything to be so new and luxurious

  • 5 of 5

This was a fabulous getaway for us and our two eight year olds. The condo is perfectly located in the center of waikoloa beach resort and we walked to beach and the macaroni grill and the grocery store

The kids snorkeled for first time. Bitsy arranged for us to paddle with her outrigger canoe club. We also followed her directions for a round the island drive to see the volcano. Fantastic visit. So easy to stay here. Beautiful sheets and comfy mattress. We just had to pick up some food.
