We recently completed our 3-week vacation at the Candini residence at Mauna Lani. By we, I mean two families of three each. Two couples and two 15 year old boys.
The property was excellent on all counts. The six of us had an ideal amount of personal space along with our time together. The highlight is, of course, the fabulous open air lanai, which comprises a deep water pool, hot tub, waterfall, BBQ and poolside refrigeration. The view beyond is stunning, day and night. It comprises the 17th hole of Mauna Lani’s South Course and, beyond, the Pacific ocean.
There are four bedrooms, each with private bath, plus an office with a trundle bed, which we also used occasionally. The kitchen is well-equipped. Meals were, for the most part, enjoyed together at the dining table or around the kitchen island. There are multiple TVs, a great sound system and wireless internet plus zoned AC.
We partook of many activities within an hour’s drive or less. Snorkeling, nighttime manta ray dives, ATV tours, zip-lining, blue marlin fishing and lots of golf. We grilled at home; but, also managed our share of dining out and happy hours. Not sure, there is much else, we could have done. Having Milo Candini, the owner’s son, nearby proved a great resource.
We are regular VRBO users and this is one of the best properties we’ve found. Highly recommended.”
