We love our new vacation home and eventual retirement home and know that you will too!
Owner purchased this townhome in 2010
Ka Milo is a very upscale development at the Mauna Lani Resort with an excellent Recreation Center, beautiful nearby beaches, superb restaurants and exciting water sports activities within walking distance. The Big Island has abundant hiking, road biking, mountain biking, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving and many other out door activities.
The Kamilo area is quiet and well maintained. Unfortunately, this home could use some loving care. It had a very worn out look of a rental home not being properly looked after. The dishwasher broke down on day 2 and the owner had it fixed right away which was good. Our biggest issue was the air conditioning which as you will read from other folks is just awful. There were some very hot nights were we laid in bed sweating because every time we turned the air on it would stay on for 10 minutes and then automatically shut down. Save yourself the frustration if air is important to you and rent for someone who has not manipulated the air conditioning system to save money.
We had a wonderful two week stay here. Lots of room for all 9 family members. Appreciated the large "great room" which included the living, dining and kitchen rooms as well as the lanai if you opened up all the glass doors which we did every day to let in the tropical breezes. Plenty of sitting room with the 3 sofas, chairs as well as the sofa and chairs on the lanai, also the dining room had 8 chairs as well as 4 bar chairs at the huge kitchen island. Loved being able to barbecue every night. Also we would gather around the large TV and watch video's that our son's took during the day while they were scuba and snorkeling. There were lots of beach towels as well as lots of towels, face cloths, soaps, including for laundry and dishes. Also lots of dishes, glasses and utensils. Enjoyed the heavy duty blender for making drinks. We loved sitting on the lanai and enjoying the view, you got a peek-a-boo view of the ocean as well you could see the observatory on Mauna Kea. We would go to the Beach club each day, beautiful beach, the kids loved it as well, then we would go to the pools in the afternoon, also enjoyed the gym, lots of nice equipment there to work out with, then into the hot tubs. Easy walk around the corner of the place to the garbage hut as well as the recycle bins. We walked to the shops often as well they have a free luau a couple of times a week. The grocery store was handy and had almost everything you could want at fair prices, veggies were more costly but you could drive to Costco not far away about 20 min. There is air conditioner but we preferred the ceiling fans and opening all the windows and doors to get the tropical breezes. Our son loved to jog all the different paths around the resort and other hotels in the area. We loved our holiday in this lovely home and want to return again, the owner was also very helpful and quick to reply to our emails to any concern that we had. It is also a very short drive to a beautiful public beach called Hapuna Beach but preferred the Beach Club as it was closer and we didn't have to pay for parking as you get a key for the place. We really feel that the description of the place on VRBO was very accurate, lovely, want to return. Thank you Tom & Laura! Ken & Hanne
What a disappointment! We were greeted (mahalo) with a series of house rules and "you break it / you buy it"expectations on the renter. Lose a key, card, or flashlight, arrive early, leave late, don't empty the garbage, stain the persian rug, leave towels, etc. results in a deposit reduction.The air conditioning and associated window switches were programmed to NOT work to save the owner on his electric bill. The electronic thermostats constantly clicked to off and were difficult to adjust, --also to save the owner money. Very uncomfortable at night. At arrival, we encountered a large rat trap at the main sliding door, and a disgusting grill and associated lanai wall and floor adjacent to the grill.We spent several hours burning off, scrubbing, washing and vacuuming the area prior to cooking. The washing machine and "clean" towels required mildew treatment prior to use.The garage was occupied by a stack of expensive solar panels, rendering the garage off limits (break it/buy it) even during Hurricane Iselle. We visited during Hurricane Iselle and received NO assistance from management, even when requested.On site management was nonexistent.The owners requested that we save their valuable lanai furniture , but provided no assistance for our (5 grandchildren) safety. We were treated as unwelcome paying clients -- never as guests! Also, there was no garbage pickup. We had to haul garbage 2 blocks to a unlit, unsafe, unsanitary dumpster depot .which was overflowing. Our feedback was delayed because the owner withheld our deposit without notice or response to our emails. Mahalo
What you see in the pictures for this house is what you get. Gorgeous, spacious and plenty of room to move about for 2 families. The kitchen had quite an assortment of condiments & food etc for use which was appreciated. The "nearby shops and beach" were a bit of a joke though. Because of the heat and humidity neither were within walking distance. The restaurants are super expensive and the only alternative is to drive the 30mins back into Kona for a reasonably priced meal (although beware The Big Island is generally expensive). The US owners idea of a beach and our Aussie idea is totally different. We expected some sand--not just jagged rock which made it totally unusable for our teenage boys. The nearest sandy beach was 3 miles away. I've mentioned to the owner numerous problems with appliances that did not work properly and poor housekeeping (I found a pill of some sort in the drawer in my bedroom and toenail clippings on the floor in the great room YUCK) The doors to the lani were badly smeared and dirty and the lock on that door didn't work. I must agree with a previous reviewer about the air con. It would work, sometimes, then would shut off. We kept all doors and windows closed but absolutely roasted at night when it would just shut down. We never had a problem of needing blankets! All in all the house was beautiful but it is not a place I would return to and would only recommend it to others if you want a place to stay and relax and not go anywhere. The pool and gym is a nice bonus
A very large house. It would be perfect for three couples as there are three secluded bedrooms with bathrooms. The fourth bedroom was actually a den with a bed (no bath) and would be great for children staying there. The main floor was very comfortable and we spent a lot of time on the lanai.
It was nice to have a garage. There were coolers and beach chairs to use. The pool was great because no one was there. It is also close to a market. There was a small putting green nearby. The electronic door lock was convenient. We only cooked a few eggs in the morning so I can't really comment on the kitchen supplies. The appliance instructions were documented well.
I actually hate air conditioning, however, there were no trade winds while we were there. It would be nice to be able to run the air a bit cooler than was allowed to cool the house down. My suggestion would be to provide a few floor fans to use especially upstairs. It needed a ceiling fan on the lanai. (Again, if there were trade winds it would have been fine).
All in all, it was a very nice, clean and comfortable house. We would definitely stay again. The owner was responsive to inquiries and return of deposit.
We had a luxurious week’s stay in this unit. The layout, décor and amenities were first class. Our group consisted of 2 couples – one stayed in the master bedroom upstairs, and we were in the downstairs master bedroom. We each had our own well-appointed bathrooms with plenty of towels. We appreciated having plenty of hangers in the closets as well as several clothes racks for air drying.
The great room with its large kitchen, dining and living areas was a perfect place to gather. We loved having drinks and pupus on the upstairs lanai with its great view. The new cushions for the lanai really popped with the red color. The place was very clean. We were so comfortable with open windows/doors and running the large ceiling fans - we did not turn on the air conditioner.
The Vacation Home & Resort Info manual spells out everything you need for a pleasant stay in this unit as well as to take advantage of shops, restaurants, golf and beaches of Mauna Lani and adjacent areas. The Owners Beach Club was a quick drive, provided good snorkeling and was less crowded than the beach by Fairmont Orchid. One evening we walked from the beach to the 15th tee box of the South Course to view the sunset. Also on the beach is the restaurant Napua with excellent food and service.
Definitely a wonderful place for a return trip!
Mahalo, Tom & Laura!
