Hapuna Beach Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 bedroom, 3 bath with Ocean Views minutes to two resort beaches

After you review this virtual tour of our lovely tropical home, http://www.realtourshi.com/Tour/DBwl201/TW_WulaL201.html

please allow us to present you with something better than the traditional Hawaiian lei: the gift of a FREE NIGHT when you book at least an 8-night stay at our lovely, home, located within the gates of the exclusive Wai'ula'ula development at the Mauna Kea Resort. (Free night not available during Thanksgiving and Christmas rental periods). You'll be staying in Unit L-201, a glorious 3 bedroom, oceanview home. YOUR ENTIRE PARTY gets FREE, UNLIMITED ACCESS to the plush Mauna Kea and Hapuna Resorts, with their pools, beaches, gyms and parking. SUNSETS AND MEMORIES GO ON FOREVER! You are so welcome to enjoy our Big Island Mauna Kea, Wai'ula'ula Home (at the quiet end of the property, free from traffic and annoying headlights of cars coming and going.) Consider this spectacular property, as we do: our home-away-from home! We’ve spared no expense in lovingly furnishing our home with tasteful, comfortable furniture and collector’s art on the walls. But we know you don’t come to Hawaii to stay inside!

From the lanai terrace of your home-away-from home on the Big Island, you and your family will make memories that – like our sunsets -- will last forever, as you relax in top-of-the-line Brown and Jordan furniture. Grill your favorite foods on our gorgeous Viking Stainless Steel built in Grill. And when you’re not chilling on the lanai, enjoy the safest, sandiest beaches in Hawaii, at the Mauna Kea or Hapuna Prince Hotels where you can swim, surf or sunbathe.

Prefer to work out on state-of-the-art fitness equipment and then plunge in our amenity center’s infinite pool or hot tub? Come on over. It’s only a 5-minute walk! And you can use the grill and tables there for a family luau!

HAVE A SECOND HONEYMOON OR BRING THE KIDS! You and your family or guests will enjoy two spacious master suites with extra comfortable king-size beds, made up with silky-soft, 600-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. And there’s a 3rd bedroom furnished with two comfy double beds. Each bedroom has its own wide screen TV with almost as many cable channels as grains of sand on the Mauna Kea Beach!

WHEN ONLY THE FINEST WILL DO. Our 2,100 square foot second floor home was built new in 2006 and is located near the end of a private lane. So instead of traffic noise and headlights, at night you’ll hear the surf and see the stars. Wai'ula'ula homes were created from the finest building materials and feature top of the line appliances. The well-appointed kitchen – with its cherry wood cabinets and granite countertop island – is a great place for creating casual meals or more formal dinners. (As formal as the Big Island gets!)

OUR GREAT ROOM IS GREAT! Recessed lighting, coffered ceilings, and a roomy dining area are only the beginning. After a day at the beach, pool or sightseeing, there’s nothing like coming to your home-away-from home to enjoy dinner, followed by a quiet evening of reading from the many books in our library, playing the popular games we provide, or just plopping down on the comfy sectional and watching the massive 50” flat screen TV with Movie-theater quality Surround Sound, fed by a bazillion cable channels, the Blu-ray DVD player or listen to your playlist on your own Apple device.

STAY CONNECTED. We’re working vacationers too! So we provide you with FREE wireless or wired high-speed internet. There’s even a spacious desk and comfortable chair in one of the master bedrooms – if you can take your eyes off the ocean right out the window!

FREE REGISTRATION FEE and FREE RESORT MEMBERSHIP IS INCLUDED for the Mauna Key Resort and Hapuna Resort, entitling you and your family to use those facilities' lovely beaches, pools and gyms. You'll have access to meticulously-maintained tennis courts, two Championship golf courses, and the safest, sandiest beaches on the Big Island! It's our pleasure to offer these memberships FREE of charge.

About Richard Lasser, Owner

Most of the past 21 years we've frozen our toes off in Seattle. So you can imagine how excited we were to finally make our dream come true and purchase this lovely second home for us, our kids and grandkids. But we're working folk, so we can't get down to the Big Island as much as we'd like. So, we hope you enjoy it when we can't be there. This is not just a rental for us. It truly is our second home, and that's how we've designed and furnished it, right down to the artwork on the walls and the 600-thread count, Egyptian cotton sheets. So we know you'll be comfortable, happy and pleased with all the design choices we've made. Enjoy your time in our home away from home. Wish we were there!

Richard Lasser, Owner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Lasser, Owner chose Hapuna Beach

We're in the most exclusive gated compound on the Mauna Kea property. Instead of hordes of tourists and cars crowding wide streets, you relax amid the lush vegetation, serenaded by colorful songbirds. From our end of the compound, traffic dies to practically zero, since we are the next to last property. Your unobstructed view of the Pacific at sunset is matchless.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy the safest and quietest part of the Waiulaula compound. Live in a home furnished with designer furniture and original, vintage art. Enjoy unique ocean and mountain views (plus Haleakala on Maui on a clear day!

Beautiful Property and Great Responsive Owner

  • 5 of 5
This is our third time staying at this complex and first time in this unit. We love coming back to this area year after year due to the great access at Mauna Kea and Hapuna with great amenities and spectacular beaches (we think Mauna Kea is about the best in the world - and we've traveled a lot through Caribbean, South Pacific, etc.) We were four adults staying and the two master bedrooms were great and would have had more space for other 2 people. The unit is beautiful, well maintained plush property. We travel to 5 star hotels and expect the same from our rentals.

Pros:

· Great stereo/electronics. Great TVs and cable (plenty of TVs in the condo). The surround sound was great as well.

· Nicely decorated, clean, beautiful appointed furniture – mattresses in the master bedrooms were very good / comfortable and we loved the couch in the living room.

· Great views of the ocean from the lanai. BBQ looked like it was brand new and patio furniture was great (even separate dishes were provided for the lanai).

· Plenty of towels and other kitchen extras

· Great attentiveness and response from the owner and resort services. Would always receive a response within a couple of hours.

· Kitchen was well equipped, with good knives.

· As noted before, location is great – our third time staying in the Wai’ula’ula (previously in different condos). This is our favorite place to visit, with amazing beaches, amenities and comfortable and luxurious accommodations.

· I’ve seen some reviews saying there was no hot water or took a very long time to get– We had no problems and it really only takes 3 minutes for the hot water come when the shower is turned on. Just need to be patient.

Cons: These would not deter us from staying again

· We had some IT issues during part of our stay but this was resolved to our satisfaction.

· During our visit in September, to fully enjoy the sunset view we needed to go out to the golf course (a 1 min walk). We still saw all the colours but the view of the sun itself was covered by the house next door. We did catch a glimpse from the second master bedroom. I understand that at other times during the year (spring & summer) the sunset is visible from the condo as the sun moves north.

· Bring bars of soap. We've told the owner but we got caught off guard. There was shampoo, conditioner and shower gel provided in each bathroom (travel size) but the bars of soap would have come in handy for the sinks

Great unit with everything you can think of

  • 5 of 5
We stayed at this unit for a week with 2 kids ages 12 and 8. Right from the inquiry stages, my interaction with Richard has been excellent, prompt and informative. Unit itself exceeded our expectations (we are picky travelers !!), superb kitchen, equipped with everything you need and then some !! Beds are superior and so are the pillows which are important to us. Views from the lanai is so serene. Great appliances, tv comes with Netflix and other such services !!!! Lots of closet space.. I can go on and on :) Lovely unit.
Our only gripe was with Gail, who is the manager from Hapuna Prince hotel. She didn't make any effort to help us since we were there during hurricane. In fact, when I called her, she said she won't be working that day !!!! Don't get me wrong, she was pleasant, but just not going out of her way to make the guests welcome. If at all there is any suggestion, may be kitchen could use a nice tall garbage can with a closure (one of those steel ones) !! That's about it.

Unit also has access to Mauna Kea resort and Hapuna Price Hotel, both of which we totally loved for their beach and pool. Will go back in a heart beat. Very quite and lovely place to stay on the island.

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here during the week of our wedding. This condo was beautiful and nicely furnished. It was spacious and the rooms were quite large, we felt like we could fit more people. The owner Richard sent me an email mid week just to make sure everything is okay, which we really appreciated. Definitely would've liked to stay longer.

Luxury on the Kohala Coast

  • 5 of 5
My family of four spoiled ourselves in this luxurious condo. My husband and I were able to relax in the master suite while my kids each had their own bedroom and bathroom. What a treat. This condo would easily work for two families or a family with kids and grandparents. There was not one thing that I would change about our Big Island stay. The condo has all of the amenities that you could ask for and more. The full size washer and dryer is a very nice perk and the boogie boards and cooler in the garage were a bonus. It is also decorated beautifully. Having access to both the Hapuna Prince and the Mauna Kea (two of the most beautiful beaches I have ever been to) was key. You need a car to get to ther resorts, but the infinity pool in the condo area couldn't be beat. Most times, we had it to ourselves. I was a little surprised that the Kohala Coast shut down pretty early during the week, but once we realized that, we just adjusted our planning accordingly. We can't wait to return to this condo on the Big Island. I give it my highest recommendation.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
Overall this place is great. It has great views and is very nice. The owner has done a great job of tastefully decorating the condo and it is very welcoming. The owner also does a good job of connecting you with the right people on property should there be any issues. The lanai is perfect for having a great meal outside. Literally, over the week that we were there, we never ate at the table inside. The access to both the beaches and pools at Mauna Kea and Hapuna is great! The kids loved having the boogie boards that are included with the condo for guest use to take down to the beach. A couple of comments to be aware of: 1) the check in process is not intuitive. The guy at the guard station at the entrance to the Hapuna Beach Hotel and Resort property sent us straight to the house, which you cannot get access to without first checking in at the Hapuna Beach Hotel front desk. Seems like he should know otherwise. 2) the wifi router had just been changed and the information in all of the materials had not been updated. We updated it in the information book that is on property with the correct password, etc. Still could never get a great signal from it (2-3 bars at most). Overall, we had a great time and would recommend highly. Thanks for sharing your property with us!

Great stay in Paradice

  • 5 of 5
Hi Richard,

We wanted to let you know how much we enjoyed staying in your condo on our recent trip to the Big Island. We felt right at home there (even more at home perhaps than our actual home!). The condo is cozy, well equipped and spacious. We enjoyed the nice views and quiet community. Our toddler son enjoyed collecting golf balls on the property and swimming in the infinity pool (and the soaking tub!).

Some of our favorite highlights
Ultra quiet (No one else was staying in the building when we were there)
Very clean. Specifically impressed by the extremely clean lanai and lanai furniture, and barbeque. We’ve stayed in a lot of places in Hawaii and this was by far the cleanest.
Very pretty Koa wood beds and nice bedding (clearly you love Target as much as Jessica does). Nicely decorated unit with modern Hawaiian feel.
Crib (with nice bedding too), high chair and playpen made our baby’s stay just as cozy too (any thoughts on Including a baby tub? $20 from Target, would have made our lives a lot easier)
We are big into cooking so good array of kitchen tools. Appreciated the storage containers for our leftovers.

A few things which would have made the stay even enjoyable
While we understand that hot water can take a while to run, we never got any hot water at all in the king master bathtub. Also, the king master and hall bath shower heads need cleaning of mineral buildup so the spray is even and direct. The master bath shower also has a big leak from the neck of the showerhead. Water pressure in the kitchen is also very low making it difficult to wash dishes efficiently.
Getting a detailed list of what amenities are provided would have been extremely helpful to plan our trip better. For instance, we did not know beach towels were included so we brought our own.
Main TV and remote are overly complicated. 4 adults with advanced degrees could not figure out how to use Netflix :P

Cheers
Jessica and Murad Bharwani
