We have vacationed on the Big Island for the last 10 years. We recently decided to be an owner and look forward to sharing our Villa with others.
Wm F Bennett purchased this villa in 2011
We chose Mauna Kea for the location to the best beaches on the island, along with the proximity to the Mauna Kea Hotel and golf course.
Staying at the Villa allows easy walking to the access restricted beach at Mauna Kea along with incredible views of the ocean.
We are new owners and new to VRBO. We look forward to helping you enjoy the Big Island as much as we do. We appreciate any feedback concerning your stay.
Our family was so pleased with this rental. A couple of highlights:
> Very short walk to the hotel/beach
> Large. Tons of space in each bedroom with a huge bathroom suite for each. Huge living room.
> Plunge Pool - Was consistently warm and a great spot to relax in the afternoons. The kids loved it.
> Very clean
> Bennett was super responsive and greeted us with an awesome fruit array as he walked us through the property.
Would definitely rent again!
If you're looking for the ideal Hawaiian vacation, this is it! It's a great fit for everyone. For the active types there is the Ala Kahakai Trail that covers 3/4 of the entire coastline just a short walk from the villa. Hike to the temple built by King Kamehameha at Puukohola National Historic Park. Golf in paradise at the Robert Trent Jones designed course or relax on the nicest beach on the Big Island. Fine dining is available at the resort or just 5 minutes up the road at the Blue Dragon. Go for a sail and snorkel with Endless Summer Charters out of Kawaihae Harbor less than ten minutes from the resort. This villa is convenient to everything and a wonderful place to relax. It's roomy, quiet, and private. Enjoy beautiful sunsets and dinner on the lanai. The villa has everything a person needs to kick back and enjoy a perfect Hawaiian vacation.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in the Villa at Mauna Kea. The Villa was everything as described, extremely clean and well equipped to make our stay memorable. The property manager was very accessible to make sure we had a fabulous time. We will return for sure!!
What a fantastic site for a Hawaiian vacation! This villa provides great sunset views and is only a few minutes walk from the best beach on the Island at the Mauna Kea Resort. For a nominal fee we joined the resort which provided us with resort privileges including discounted golf at the most scenic golf course I have ever played! Resort privileges apply to both the Mauna Kea AND The Hapuna Beach Resorts! The villa itself is beautiful and very well maintained. The small pool on the lanai was a perfect spot for a late afternoon dip before grilling up fresh fish and vegetables from the local fish and farmers markets. It really does not get better than this! The location is perfect as we took a number of half and full day trips to view the volcanoes, mountains, remote valleys, waterfalls and beaches around the island. A number of great restaurants are also close by for breakfast, lunch and dinner. A great spot for couples or families to enjoy the Big island of Hawaii...!! We'll be back!
I stayed at This villa with my husband and 20 year old son and 17 year old daughter and had a fantastic experience. The villa was spacious and very comfortable. The landscaping was beautiful and it was a 5 minute walk to the Mauna Kea Resort down a path by the driving range. When my husband and I played golf, the kids could walk to the beach. We were able to use both the Mauna Kea Resort and Hapuna Prince Hotel services for a one time fee of $100. Both beaches were spectacular and the snorkeling was easy and great. Chair and towel service is provided at those two resorts for guests at The villa.
It was nice that the villa came equipped with stuff like foil, plastic wrap, paper towels, dishwashing soap, clothing soap, plastic baggies, 6 beach towels, a small cooler, etc. Also, spices and items like vegetable oil, vinegar, olive oil, mayo, mustard etc., were left in the kitchen and were nice and fresh and clean. I didn't feel like those items had been there for months and were gross. I had no problem using the leftover food essentials.
Bennett was extremely helpful. He sent us volcano tours via email, stocked the kitchen with initial groceries for breakfast as we were arriving late at night, provided us with boogie boards, beach chairs and an umbrella for when we visited beaches not on the resort, and made suggestions for activities and dinner.
We loved having a cocktail and watching the sunset on the lanai. The pool was nice for a quick refreshing dip before showering for the evening. I couldn't have been more pleased with the villa and our stay. Hopefully, we will be back soon!
Aloha and Mahalo!
We have been staying at the Mauna Kea Hotel several times a year for the past 7 years and were eager to try a condo so that we didn't have to eat out every meal. When this villa became available we immediately inquired about it. Bennett responded right away was very helpful in answering questions and making the reservation, and we booked 6 nights from July 19 - 25. He met us at the villa and even offered to grocery shop for us before we arrived. I can't say enough about the beauty, amenities and location of the villa. It was very clean and tastefully decorated, and has the same Polynesian feel of the Mauna Kea, with lots of warm mahogany, tile & comfortable furnishings. The spacious floor plan, huge kitchen (with everything you need for cooking, grilling & entertaining) and the dipping pool on the patio make it a relaxing home away from home. When you add in the luxurious bathrooms with soaking tubs and window gardens, the quiet and serene setting, the incredible panoramic views of the ocean from nearly every room, and the ability to walk 8 minutes to the stunning Mauna Kea Beach to swim and snorkel, this villa is unmatched! We will definitely be staying here again, and we can't wait to bring family and friends along in the future!
