It's so nice - we've done it twice! Fantastic!

We first rented the house for an entire week in September, 2013 - yes, just the two of us. (LOTS of space.) We also just returned from our second week at this home, and loved it just as much.

Before arriving, I knew we were already "at home" as Donna made us feel so special, and immediately created a wonderful bond via the phone and emails. She answered every question we asked, provided great information about the resorts and surrounding areas, etc. Upon arrival, we were amazed at the property, the views, the weather and the amenities of the resorts. The biggest daily decisions were which pool/beach to use...the Hapuna, The Mauna Kea or just relax at the property's very own private pool, yes Chardonnay in hand. What a way to relax.

The house itself is wonderful and spacious. The kitchen is stocked very well with pots/pans, plates, utensils and lanai-ware for outdoors. It's a great set-up for entertaining, especially if you are going with a larger group of people. There is also an outdoor gas grill which was used several times.

As for the bedrooms, they are very spacious, and VERY clean. Do you find a bug once in a while? Of course! It's the tropics! (And having lived in South Florida for years, a little gecko here and there in the house, which is rare, is also good fortune as they take care of any little bug that may have entered.) We had one little issue with a leaky valve on a toilette and Donna had people out within the hour to have it repaired. The grounds are spotless and maintained impeccibly! Donna, Marsie, Richard - everyone takes such pride in this place.

Basically, what I'm trying to say is this place is perfect. Whether you're a couple looking to just get away from it all, or are coming with a group of people, this is your place. If you're a family trying to vacation together or have a mini-reunion, this is perfect! The house is divided so well that you won't trip on each other at all. Throw all the kids in the family room, and let the "big" kids sleep in the wonderful bedrooms. If you have a car, it's a great place to jump from and explore, as well as very close to Kawai'hae (5 minutes away) with great restaurants and Waimea.

I could go on, but won't. It's just lovely and while these pictures are quite accurate, they don't do it justice. Can't WAIT to be back! Aloha...

Wonderful place

  • 5 of 5
Our friends highly recommended this villa to us so we expected a lot. As soon as we arrived, it was clear that our expectations would be met or even exceeded. It is a big place (it was only 4 of us but it could be comfortable for 8 people easily). All well maintained and organized with nice touches - you can feel that the owner really did a lot of work to make guests comfortable. Great views (sunsets are unbelievable). The villa is so well placed and feels very private even with other villas around.

But probably the best part is the attention from Donna to all our questions and requests. We were there when the hurricane was to hit the island and Donna made every effort and spent so much time helping us to feel comfortable and prepared. Donna does make you feel like a very valuable and welcomed guest. So our 2 weeks passed very quickly in this paradise place.

Perfect Family Vaction Home

  • 5 of 5
We highly recommend this house to rent! It's perfect for two families with children (might be a little tight with 3 families). The two master bedrooms are beautiful, the queen room is smaller but still is nice, and the bonus room with beds was perfect for all the kids. Having the two hotels to go to was so nice! The house is located in an excellent spot - close to both hotels. We loved staying at the house though since the pool was so convenient with kids! When we had issues with appliances, etc. the manager was very helpful! No complaints whatsoever! We will definitely come back!

AMAZING HOME!!!!

  • 5 of 5
Our family was lucky enough to stay in this amazing home for three nights, spanning the days around the 4th of July. Coming from the rainy weather we'd been experiencing on the Hilo side to the sunshine and warmth of the Kohala Coast made for a pleasant change. The home itself was immaculate--comfortable furniture, a well suplied kitchen, a welcoming backyard with an incredible ocean view and a clean pool large enough for our party of nine. A particular highlight of our stay: on the evening of July 4th, after watching a gorgeous sunset, a wonderful fireworks display was set off from the Mauna Kea Resort directly below. From our poolside seats, the fireworks might as well have been exclusively planned for our group!

70% there.....needs work

  • 2 of 5
We first visited this house in 2013 as our friends had rented it. Our first impression was very positive but we didn't spend much time there. We decided to rent it this year with another family with one child. We loved the idea of having our own pool so the 4 kids could just hang out and play. We also loved that we had full access to Hapuna pool and beach as well as Mauna Kea beach. The location is ideal, close to the work out facility, golf, beaches, etc. We are overly anal when it comes to cleanliness because it's super easy to keep things clean and tidy, especially when you are spending a lot of money on a vacation. I can deal with other things at rental houses, but general cleanliness is not one of them. The house needs a deep cleaning at least once a month. This means actually moving furniture and cleaning everywhere. Also the bathrooms needs to be scrubbed with bleach and deeply cleaned, not just a quick surface clean after every guest leaves. We first noticed this when we moved some beds around in the rec. room for our 3 girls. There were dead cockroaches everywhere as well as a couple of dead centipedes. Nothing like cleaning a house the first day you get there!! We dealt with both live and dead cockroaches the entire 10 days we were there as well as geckos in the house. I realize the house is on one acre in a hilly, brush, dry environment, but I would think they would have the perimeter sprayed once a week. Anyway, it was disgusting to deal with this issue the whole time. The other thing the house needs is new bedding and new mattresses. It obviously gets a lot of use. There were no extra sheets, blankets, pillow cases, etc. Very disappointing. Our mattress was horrible. It was cratered on both sides so you felt like you were rolling off the bed all night. Again, for amount of money you pay per night, you would think the place would be dialed in and there would be no issues. Unfortunately, there were, which put a big damper on our trip. We seemed to be doing more cleaning than relaxing. For that amount of money, we won't be returning unless the owner invests some serious time and money into upgrades.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. We are SO surprised upon reading this for the first time through VRBO as nothing was mentioned during your stay while corresponding with you. Resort Services staff frequented the premises during your stay which would have been a great opportunity for them to discuss this with you immediately. We sincerely apologize for your experience. We take great pride having our vacation home in the Mauna Kea and have great expectation from their services, so this is very disturbing. As you can tell from our reviews, other experiences have been to the contrary. But we respect your honesty about being anal (even moving our furniture like this was your home) and your preference not to allow Resort Services immediate access. Ones living habits are subject to ones own opinion and having many people in our home, we have seen a difference between realities. We of course, are not saying this is in your case, but we are left in a position of wonder. Resort Services has been notified and convey their sincere apologies and hope, from your comment, that you would entertain returning allowing an opportunity for them to meet your expectations. Thank you again.
