Lovely setting, well maintained, spotlessly clean. The townhouse is easy to find in the Mauna Lani resort, and conveniently located near the King's Mall and the Fairmont Orchid, both within walking distance. The private beach is a short drive (or longer walk) away, just beyond the Koi ponds. For the golfers, it is set amidst the gold course. The resort is quiet, expansive, and with plenty to do if you never want to leave the grounds, including swimming in the ocean or pool, snorkeling, surfing, golfing, tennis, eating at fabulous restaurants, or shopping.
The Mauna Lani is conveniently located 15 minutes north of the Kona airport, and serves as a great base to explore the entire island. Day trips to Hilo, the volcano, Waipio Valley, Kohala Coast, and Waimea are all easy from here.
Denby was a great hostess, and strove to make the stay memorable.
I would recommend staying here without reservation.
