Known as 'Hale Melehuna' (or 'House of the Secret Hawaiian Song'), Kumulani G-1 features panoramic ocean views across the Hapuna Golf Course, from most rooms. The unit is centrally air-conditioned, but -- for fresh air lovers -- it's also cooled by island breezes and trade winds nearly every day, a rarity on the Kohala Coast. This special home features an ocean-view great room with comfy leather sofas and dining table that seats up to 10, and an upscale kitchen with ocean views that is well-equipped for preparing gourmet meals. Grind fresh organic Kona Coffee beans and brew in the french press for an unsurpassed, smooth hot beverage; and steam rice to perfection in the rice cooker.
Sleeping accommodations in Kumulani G-1 include an ocean-view master suite with memory foam topped cal king bed and elegant en suite bath offering twin vanity, shower, soaking tub, separate toilet, and separate walk-in closet; a second bedroom with two twin beds that can be put together as a king bed; and an enclosable small den that becomes a third bedroom with a Murphy bed wall unit containing a queen bed with real mattress. A second marble bathroom, adjacent to the second bedroom, ensures privacy for everyone.
Comfortable, uncluttered furnishings, local art, 10-foot ceilings, sliding-glass doors framing the blue sea, and ceiling fans in all rooms complement Kumulani G-1's Hawaiian motif.
You won't want to leave the covered ocean-view lanai, the perfect place to dine, or to relax, and enjoy tropical trade winds and gorgeous sunsets.
Situated on 11 acres, the serene and private Kumulani community boasts the lowest building density in the Uplands at Mauna Kea. Steps from G-1 is the complex's private recreation center, with pool, Jacuzzi spa, barbecue grill, tables and chairs, chaise lounges, outdoor shower and bathrooms. It's also a 2-minute drive to either of two of the U.S.'s top-rated beaches, Mauna Kea and Hapuna, which are part of the Mauna Kea resort, but also open to the public.
Guests at Kumulani G-1 can enjoy access to the world-renowned Mauna Kea Beach and Hapuna Prince Resorts*, including 36 holes of championship golf, first-class seaside tennis and workout facilities, two pristine white sand beaches, and upscale restaurants and shops. Golfers can experience the reopened Mauna Kea Golf Course, which has been replanted with highly efficient ultra-dwarf Tifeagle Bermuda grass on the greens and Tifway 419 hybrid Bermuda grass on the tees, fairways and roughs.

We live on the Big Island full time, and moved from this condo to our nearby home about five years ago. We want to continue to be part of the Mauna Kea community, so we've kept our condo. We hope that you love the Mauna Kea resort as much as we do.
Victoria Leadley-Williams purchased this condo in 2001
We chose the Mauna Kea Resort for the same reason Laurence Rockefeller did back in the 1960s when he had first choice of locations on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island: it is the finest property with the best beaches. We quibble with the way it's managed, but we wouldn't be anywhere else.
We chose our condo because it's perched a bit higher along a ridge of seven other condo buildings that front the fourth fairway, and gets better breezes all day long -- in addition to its spectacular views.
Nothing beats waking up with the fresh breezes kissing your skin, deeply inhaling the fragrant air, living in the Hawaiian sunshine, and spending time on Mauna Kea Beach and Hapuna Beach!

What a beautiful house to stay in while here on the Big Island. Convenient and very close to our main building that we went to each day for our conference. We appreciated the amenities available like the seasonings and beach towels. I personally love that my bed in the 3rd room goes into the wall to create so much space during the day. Also lots of space to store things in the space provided. Thanks for renting this house to us, it was a lovely stay.
This 2/3 bedroom condo is a great place to stay at the Mauna Kea Resort. The living and dining room combined with the large windows going around, gives you spectacular view of the golf course and the blue ocean. Sitting out on the lanai in the evening to watch the sunset, can not be described as nothing less than one of God's gifts to man. A very quiet, peaceful and relaxing place to stay.
Besides the beaches, it is not far from places such as shopping, snorkeling, and manta ray swimming. The Hawaiian Café up in Waimea was a great place for a true hawaiian breakfast.
Our family of 6 enjoyed this lovely condo for 9 days over spring break and we highly recommend it. It is larger than the photos depict, very clean and comfortable and the kitchen is stocked with everything you could possibly need, We never needed the a/c, the north-facing corner location ensures it receives less direct sun than other units in the afternoon, and the trades blow gently to keep it comfortable. The sunset and golf course views are lovely from the lanai, and can be seen easily from inside as well, as the large windows afford nice views and light.
We enjoyed use of both the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince Hotel pools and beaches. At the MK, you park in the valet parking area and can access the beach through the hotel. There is no shame in trudging through the lobby with your beach gear, the staff is accustomed to serving guests of the residences and you are never made to felt like second-class citizens.
The breakfast buffet at the Prince is abundant - with a gorgeous view overlooking the beach - and is a relative bargain. The beaches at HP and MK are second to none. Our kids we're in the water non-stop and had a blast. The booking agent, Nelson, of Island and Beach Rentals was terrific to work with as well. Wonderful vacation and we can't wait to return.
What's not to like? The location on the Mauna Kea resort property is the nicest spot on the Island. The condo is very very nice, clean and comfortable with fabulous views of the ocean and the golf course. The condo area was quiet and peaceful. (Was I breaking the rules sneaking out on the 4th hole of Hapuna Golf Course(100 feet away) for a little chipping and putting at sunset?). It was the perfect way for my family to spend a week enjoying the Big Island.
My husband and I stayed here for three perfectly self indulgent weeks enjoying all of the amenities of the Mauna Kea Resort. The accommodations were incredible -- comfortable, tranquil and furnished with everything we needed. Nearly every room offered spectacular views of the golf course and ocean beyond! This vacation exceeded our expectations and we look forward to returning.
I recommend this property to families, as well as one or two couples.
My husband and I stayed in this Kumulani condo for a week in May 2010. The condo is completely stocked, has distant ocean views and is on one of the golf fairways. What we would have done differently: Purchase the amenity package before you arrive. The pool adjacent to the condo is on 3 feet deep, and very tiny. Also, you WILL want to use the lounge chairs at Mauna Kea Hotel-do not bother with Hapuna Beach Prince hotel, lounge chairs are rusty and disgusting. You cannot use any of the hotels beaches, towels or anything unless you pay for the $40/pp per day fee. But it will be worth it! We tried to contact the amenity desk after we arrived and never even got a call back, so we were unable to go to Mauna Kea resort without heavy security eyes staring at all times. We got too close one day and were approached by Mauna Kea Security and asked what our room number was, then we were asked to move away from resort area!!! Ouch, was that embarrassing!
