This villa is spacious, beautiful, well appointed and private. The pool and pool deck are spacious with incredible ocean and mountain views, and comfortable furniture. We could actually see whales breaching from the pool deck with binoculars (provided). The lush grounds are gorgeous overlooking golf course. Very large open concept living and dining area, nice kitchen with island and adjoining laundry, two large bedrooms on opposite ends of villa with HUGE adjoining bathrooms and powder room off living area. All furniture and beds very comfortable. Each bedroom has covered lanai that leads to pool and pool deck. Outdoor grill. You have full use of Mauna Kea Resort, including huge pool, beaches with plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. Towels and lounge covers provided. Nice beachside restaurant for lunch and a tiki bar. Very good restaurant for dinner. Luaus and special events available. 5 minutes away in the quaint little town of Kawaihae Harbor are fishing charters, sunset whale cruises and day cruises with snorkeling, dolphin and whale watching with Endless Summer Private Charters.
All that said, the most important perk of this stay is your contact person for the villa and charters, Penny Ritter. She is a local and knows all the cool places to go and will make your reservations. She also stocked the villa with our grocery and wine requests for a nominal fee, all waiting when we arrived. Her knowledge of the area, kindness and concern for your stay to be perfect, is unmatched by anything we've ever experienced. We are going back next year. Can't wait!
