BY FAR THE BEST BEACHES

Beach Forbes Magazine

Here is a link that ranks Kaunaoa (The Mauna Kea beach) and Hapuna as the #1 beach in the US. http://travel.usnews.com/Rankings/Best_Beaches_in_the_USA/

Here is another site that ranks Hapuna #2. They don't mention Mauna Kea because on 30 non resort guest cars are allowed to park. http://www.americasbestonline.net/index.php/pages/beachestop25.html

Here is another site which named Mauna Kea # 1 in 2000 and Hapuna in 1993. This site does not name the same beach more than once.

Guestbook comments from the owner
My family has had the incredible pleasure of staying at this property multiple times. In fact, we consider this borrowed piece of paradise our home away from home. Simply put, the condo is impeccable with a kitchen so well equipped that it rivals a restaurant! The decor is gorgeous and beautifully maintained. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all large and perfectly appointed. The owners and property manager make your stay memorable from start to finish. It isn't just the views or the easy access to the most beautiful beaches and hotels on the Big Island that make this condo a treasure. There is a warmth and energy about it that keeps us coming back annually. The kids room btw is worth mentioning for any interested moms---walk in closet! Giant (yet tasteful) plush stuffed animal on bed and a washing machine and dryer that are steps away and super easy to use. Same with the fancy dishwashers (plural) and BBQ on the deck. This unit is a gem. My children consider it their favorite place in the world and I have to agree. --Tracy, Scottsdale, AZ

Our family has lived on Kauai, Oahu and Big Island for the past 16 years. When we sold our home on the Big Island to move to Honolulu we bought at the Mauna Kea so we would always have a presence here. It is simply the best spot on the island. We have renovated and decorated over 10 places from New Orleans, Kauai, the Big Island, Oahu and the central coast of California. My wife is an artist who has a great eye and sense of style.

John purchased this condo in 2006

Our place is furnished like a home with French antiques from New Orleans and Paris along with an island flare. Very comfortable beds and wonderful linens, exotic soaps, flat screen TVs and a Wii. Concierge service is provided with your stay. The Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince Resorts are the best location on the Big Island without exception. Simply the best beaches on the island and some of the best in the world. The other Big Island resorts do not have beaches like this. Our prices are competitive but not the cheapest at the resort. If you are looking t=for the cheapest place to stay, this is not the place. If you are looking for the best place to stay then you have found the right spot.

Best tennis courts, best beach..it is the Mauna Kea...Rockefeller knew what he was doing when he chose this location in the 1960s. Great amenities, wonderfully furnished, equipped kitchen, top end soaps, linens, and very clean place. We take pride in making our places the very best. If you want it and we don't have we will get it.

WONDERFUL STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at John's condo, and every thing was flawless. The view was spectacular. The place was tastefully done and perfectly clean. All the amenities were there. Muffet was incredibly helpful to make sure that our stay would be perfect. We also appreciated her recommendation for a great baby sitting service and baby equipment rental place. We had breakfast at Mauna Kea everyday and really appreciated having the parking access. We definitely will be back.

WONDERFUL HOME!

  • 5 of 5
Beautiful home, fantastic location! The most difficult decision of the day was deciding "the beach of the day".....Mauna Kea or Hapuna Beach. A very relaxing vacation, in a home that contains everything you might need for a stress free vacation. The on site manager was a pleasure to work with, and all of our questions were answered. We were greeted with a wonderful bowl of tropical fruit to help us get in the spirit of a Hawaiian vacation!
We would definitely choose a vacation again at this location. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

A TRIP TO REMEMBER

The condo was fantastic and exactly as depicted in the pictures. The views were wonderful and the proximity and access to the resorts was great. I would stay there again in a minute and recommend it to anyone traveling to the Big Island.

THREE FRIENDS

  • 5 of 5
This condo is a great property with all of the amenities included for a wonderful vacation at Mauna Kea.
It is close to the spa and everything in the condo is as described on the website. I was under the impression we would be closer to the beach from the web page but it was not an issue since the beaches were on property and were wonderful. The beaches were a quick drive from the condo. The onsite manager is wonderful and most helpful to any concerns. I would recommend this property to any of my friends.

GREAT STAY

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here the 2nd week of Janurary and had one of the best vacations we've ever been on. The condo was just as advertised and the free access to Mauna Kea and Hapuna were a big plus. The owners and the staff were kind and helpful.
