Mauna Lani Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Den, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6 in adjoining den)

Our Villa, which we've named 'Hale Hula' (Hula House), is a custom, professional Interior Designer’s Own Home; it is our home, one that we have opened up to special guests! Hale Hula Villa is Mauna Lani Resort’s NICEST, MOST COMFORTABLE, Most Luxuriously Appointed Villa!

*** Read our 56+ 5-star reviews! ***

You will be paying only 1/3 the cost of the Fairmont Orchid Hotel - with FAR SUPERIOR amenities and value!

BEACHES ARE WITHIN A SHORT WALKING DISTANCE from the condo.

Great care has been taken to select comfortable and luxurious designer furnishings. The works of local island artists and sculptors abound and, of course, there is a beautiful hand crafted 'Hula Lamp'. Your huge kitchen is well stocked with all the gadgets and equipment that you could want. Miles of granite counters and stainless steel appliances will please the chef. We know you will enjoy the outdoor kitchen with Viking gas BBQ grill, rotisserie, and sink, for 'dining alfresco' on the lower lanai after a busy day of island activities. Enjoy the view of the waterfall cliffs, pool and swaying palms.

The upper master bedroom suite is most comfortable, with its pillow-top King bed and custom bedding, Casablanca ceiling fan, separate, adjoining sitting area with queen sofa bed, and a private lanai for enjoying the sunrise over Mauna Kea and bird songs with your first cup of Kona coffee. The master bath is luxurious, with gorgeous local-artist jungle painting, walk in shower, jetted tub, and double sinks with granite counters. The guest bedroom area is also a private suite, having a private bath, two closets, a desk, and a pillow-top queen size bed, also with custom bedding, beneath the Casablanca ceiling fan.

High speed wireless Internet is included throughout, along with 40' LCD HDTV, DVD, and VCR in the living room, 35' Sony LCD TV, and DVD in the master bedroom, and an LCD TV in the guest bedroom. Games, books, and ukuleles (with instruction manual), are there for getting you quickly into the island culture.

Hale Hula Villa is located at The Fairways at The Mauna Lani Resort. Mauna Lani has long been the choice of those in the know, because of its rich traditions and ties to the Hawaiian royalty. Within the resort are two of the finest hotels on the island (Mauna Lani Bay and the Fairmont Orchid), two of the most acclaimed golf courses (Francis H. I’i Brown North and South Courses), The Mauna Lani Sports and Fitness Club, miles of white sand beaches, nine restaurants, including Tommy Bahama, Ruth's Chris, Canoe House, and Brown's Beach House, two award winning spas, a brand new shopping mall for the discerning shopper, and a well-stocked specialty grocery store, all within a short walking/driving distance from Hale Hula. The Mauna Lani Beach Club is private, BUT YOURS TO ENJOY, while staying with us at Hale Hula. The private white sand beach and snorkeling at this beach are spectacular, as the fish abound here, amongst pristine coral formations.

The Fairways at Mauna Lani has unsurpassed lush landscaping, unique Hawaiian architecture, and beautiful aqua blue pools and spa. We chose our Hale Hula Villa for its views of the tropical gardens and the pool area with its waterfalls and swaying palms. Proximity to the pool is just right to provide soothing views and convenience without the noise. The resort offers a fully-outfitted exercise room, located just a few feet away. Don’t forget that BEACHES ARE WITHIN A SHORT WALKING DISTANCE from the condo.

Before you get too comfortable in this lush island paradise, don’t forget that the Big Island offers an abundance of adventures FOUND ONLY ON THIS ISLAND, such as the very active Kilauea Volcano.

As your hosts, we can introduce you to some of our favorite, less “touristy” places, and some inside tips to make the most of those most-visited popular attractions, and restaurant recommendations, while you’re out and about.

By special arrangement, we can provide you a GUEST SHOPPING SERVICE. A guest wishing to have certain items, e.g., groceries or sundries, pre-purchased by Hale Hula management, and stocked in our villa, is a great convenience, eliminating the guests' need to shop for initial supplies or food.

We have a local professional caretaker, a “Hawaiian Representative” for your support and convenience: L. McGoff (phone # furnished with guest booking documentation information). Larry will contact you to greet you upon your arrival. Please read our 8/17/13 guest comment by Aileen (Wayne, Pennsylvania) about Larry: In her review, Aileen said, 'Larry provides a fantastic overview of the property and all amenities, which saves the vacationer time and anxiety.'

Guestbook comments from the owner
Aloha Mike and Cathy,



We just wanted to let you know that we received our $500 deposit check in the mail today. Thank you so much for sending it back so quickly.

We had a fabulous time and loved your Hale Hula! Everything was first class. This was our first time staying in the Mauna Lani area and we are very happy that we chose your place. We loved the Beach club (we've snorkeled there before) and having parking there was great.

So we are now back to our reality, but the memories of our vacation will hopefully sustain us for awhile. Thank you so much for helping make our vacation great!



Wishing you much aloha,

Vicki & Dave

My wife Cathy and I live in Idaho (when we're not in Hawaii) with our big black cat 'Mr. Smith'. We have one son, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two adorable grandchildren. I am a materials Engineer and an avid hiker, mountain climber and river rat. Cathy is an Interior Designer who enjoys building and remodeling houses. We both love adventure travel which really led us to choose Hawaii for our second home. The Big Island is much more than white sand beaches and sunny days (although we love those). Snow capped mountains with observatories that reveal the secrets of the universe and fountaining volcanoes with lava running to the sea are all within a few hours drive. The rich and exotic culture within the framework of the familiar is an intriguing paradox. We love the adventure and think that you will also!

Mike and Cathy Cusack purchased this condo in 2006

We became acquainted with Mauna Lani when Cathy was doing an installation for a client who had purchased a home in the resort. We were immediately impressed by the relaxed atmosphere so unlike the typical tourist area bustle. It reminded us of the old Hawaii. There is a real spirit of Aloha here. Mauna Lani is committed to educating visitors about the the rich history of the area and exposing them to Hawaiian culture through wonderful 'front porch' dance and music programs. The resort is also dedicated to preserving the historic royal fish ponds and petroglyphs that abound. All this coupled with the outstanding beaches, 2 world class golf courses, tennis, shopping, first class dining, & less than 10 inches of rain a year made it an easy decision to purchase in Mauna Lani!

We like to think that a lot more thought and personal attention to detail has gone into our home than the usual vacation rental. You will be pampered with designer furnishing, high thread count sheets, and beautiful art work, much of it created on the island. The unit is only 3 years old and has all those nice amenities like stainless steel appliances and granite counters. The Fairways is a very peaceful place. It is very uncrowded and guests comment that they often have the gorgeous pool to themselves. The gardens are lush and soothing. Itineraries and travel tips are provided on request.

REALLY COMFORTABLE, BEAUTIFULLY DECORATED AND GREAT AMENITIES

  • 5 of 5
The condo is even better than the photos - really nice furniture and beautiful art on the walls. Very well stocked kitchen supplies and utensils, washer and dryer, beach towels and toys for use were really nice to have available. Pool is only a few steps away and very refreshing in the afternoons. The best feature is the access to the private beach club, a short drive away. Great snorkeling, lots of lounge chairs and shade, plus the restaurant serves very good food while you look out at the beautiful view. Close to shops and restaurants, with activities and hula shows close by as well. Would recommend this to anyone with a teenager - they have their own room and bath.

GREAT PLACE TO STAY

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I and another couple stayed here for 2 weeks. Place is fabulous. Everything in the description by owner is accurate. The place is well decorated and stocked with everything you need. Great beach near by for guest, pool, shopping, food store. Larry the contact person here was very helpful and took great care of our every need. You just can't beat it. Do the Blue Hawaiian helicopter tour only 5 minutes away.

GREAT CONDO WITH EVERYTHING FURNISHED FOR A RELAXING VACATION

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at Hale Hula Villa for 16 nights, arriving on Thanksgiving day and were very pleased with our decision to rent this condo. Upon arrival, we found everything just as Mike and Cathy (owners) described. They have included everything from beach towels, cooler, and snorkel gear for those wonderful days at the beach. The location of this condo works great, as it is close to Ruth's Chris and Tommy Bahama's restaurants. Having the option to use the pool at the condo or the private beach facilities with cabanas is another nice choice. The beds were very comfortable, the furnishings throughout the unit very stylish, the cookware and kitchen supplies were supplied as advertised. Parking is available close to the unit and was a nice feature.
We would rent this condo again and highly recommend it.

WELL APPOINTED CONDO- EXCELLENT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5
The Cusaks obviously care a great deal about their guests' vacation experience from start to finish. Our family of 3 (mom, dad and 12 y/o daughter) enjoyed a wonderful week vacation at their home in Mauna Lani. The property is well maintained and rentals include the use of Mauna Lani's wonderful beach club, which is where we spent the majority of our beach days. We particularly enjoyed the scuba operation at the club, Mauna Lani Sea Adventures, and recommend it whole heartedly. The beach club restaurant serves tasty lunches at fair prices. The Cusak's on-island caretaker, Larry, provides a fantastic overview of the property and all amenities, which saves the vacationer time and anxiety. The condo is very clean and supplies (paper products, dish & laundry soaps, etc.) are plentiful. You really don't want for anything while staying here. Bring some books to leave behind for Hale Hule's growing guest library. Recommend without qualification.

THE BEST VACATION EVER

  • 5 of 5
That's how our grandchild would describe the experience at the this wonderful Big Island home. The Mauna Lani/Orchid complex is perfect for a complete Hawaiian experience, and the Fairways and this condo has one of the best locations within that area. As for the condo itself, its location with regards to the pool works well with or without kids, and the decor and extra touches can't be surpassed. It's incredibly well equipped and the managers are always on call to answer questions and bring supplies. The use of the beach club was a real plus. As for Mike and Kathy, they were very professional and friendly, with many accurate suggestions from restaurants to activities; in other words great to deal with. We have rented many VRBO accommodations over the years, and none have ever equaled this one. Too bad that a month is not enough.......maybe 6 weeks next time, or more. Thanks!!
