Spend the day golfing or lounging on the beach and then retire to your private home for a fantastic sunset, drinks from the living room bar, dinner on the patio, and a swim in your private pool. After dinner, retire to the master suite for a quiet evening, enjoy the spacious living/dining area with friends or family, send the kids to the third bedroom to play a video game (or play yourself), or venture out to the resort or nearby attractions. Its another day in paradise.

Widely travelled Los Angeles couple who love Hawaii and Mauna Kea.

Lynn P. Swank purchased this house in 2011

We have travelled to Mauna Kea for thirty years and finally decided to purchase a home at the resort. It is a special place to relax and enjoy the best of Hawaii.

Behind the gates at the resort. A brief walk to the beach or a two minute drive with priority parking at either the Mauna Kea or Hapuna hotels. You will have guest privileges at both hotels, including beach, pool, and gym privileges.

Lovely, spacious home & courtyard. Best view of ocean, many whales, & 4 volcanoes!
Loved having the kitchen so we didn't have to leave for meals. Pool was so nice on those hot afternoons. My favorite part is the "grove" of trees & bushes next door, by the outdoor shower. So beautiful, private, comfortable. Great Sonos sound system. Just a couple mins. Drive down to Mauna Kea's fabulous soft sand beach & good snorkeling. Hated to leave. Housekeeper Rachel is a gem, & Lynn was so easy to work with. Mahalo!

This house was the perfect setting for a much needed vacation. The house was clean, comfortable and had every amenity you could possibly imagine. The pool, stunning view and resort member benefits made it even more special. We had four adults and three children (all under age 5) and the house gave us plenty of space to move around, yet enjoy our time together. The owners had a high chair and pack n play already set up for us which was fabulous after a long trip! We already miss the sunsets and glorious Mauna Kea beach. We will be back for sure!

Exceeded our expectations

For my son and his family, their first trip to Hawaii was the "trip of a lifetime", and this house certainly helped make that a reality. The house was easy to find, clean, and very comfortable for the five of us. It was well appointed, with our every need anticipated, down to a picnic basket and modern, top-of-the-line appliances in the kitchen and outside grill. The view from the lanai was spectacular with sunsets and whale sightings an everyday occurrence. The pool was very well-maintained, the lanai/pool furniture comfortable and plentiful as was all the other furniture inside the house. The instructions given by the owners were timely, complete, and accurate. Having access to the Mauna Kea parking facilities, beach amenities, and everything else the hotel offered was a much appreciated bonus, and the hotel staff there is always friendly and accommodating. Everything was as pictured and as promised, and the owners very easy to work with. They were helpful and succeeded in every way to ensure we had no worries and no difficulties throughout our stay. We all, without reservation, highly recommend this property and this location.

Amazing, beautiful private home

We are a family of five who enjoyed a relaxing week at this gorgeous private home. Owners were extremely helpful and accomodating. House was very private, my teenagers loved the pool after spending time at the beach. We enjoyed watching daily sun sets from the patio. The house was well stocked with dishes, glass ware, pots/pans, and silverware. Housekeeper was very nice and helpful.We had an amazing vacation and plan to return soon. My one suggestion is for the owners to be explicit regarding check in and check out time.

we are a family of five including three children ages 3 thru 9. we have rented five properties in the mauna kea/prince area and this was by far the best. The home is very well maintained, the pool is good sized for the area and teh description and photos were very much representative. Everything we thought would be nice to have was provided and the owner's couldn't have been more helpful - even arranging to stock the kitchen ahead of our arrival. And the house-manager is wonderfully helpful. We look forward to returning.
