Hualalai Estate is a terrific villa, accommodating several families while feeling spacious. We loved the airiness of the main living area, especially when all of the doors were open. It was truly an indoor/outdoor feeling. The kitchen was well equipped and large enough for many people to prepare meals at the same time. The bedroom layout is exactly what you need when several families are there together. The pool heater continues to have some problems, although the water was warm enough this year that we were still able to use the pool. Hopefully that will be remedied soon.
The on-site manager, Waynette, was extremely helpful and friendly and made us feel welcome immediately. We were happy to see her again!
The location at the Hualalai Resort is ideal - we enjoyed the Four Season's pools, beach and restaurants. We were not too pleased about the new restrictions on "rental" guests regarding the pool seating and the restaurants, but we had a great time none-the less.
