The brilliant outdoors, for which the vacationer travels to the Big Island to find, can only be matched by the gracious allure of this sublime Mauna Lani property. There is an exacting effort with the manner in which this KaMilo town home has been furnished and decorated that welcomes the eye, the mind, and the spirit. When every detail begets another fine facet of Hawaiian style, one can comprehend the perfect nature of island hospitality.
With four retreat bedrooms and three and-a-half serene bathrooms, this property provides maximum convenience and comfort for a family or group who enjoy togetherness, along with space to one’s own solitude. Upon entry, the foyer meets every expectation for your holiday escape, as the open living space presents ample seating and dining areas, along with an inviting upper lanai. Ocean breezes gently meander through the room-wide sliding patio doors, softly coaxing the palm trees surrounding the property. Meticulous landscaping unfolds beyond to fill one’s wandering gaze outside.
A large island, fully functional with sink, dishwasher, and wine refrigerator anchors the exquisite kitchen as a hub for meal preparation, and coffee conversations from its bar stools. The appliances are stationed within efficient reach, and the cabinets contain a bounty of useful culinary tools and supplies. Great get-togethers are impossible to avoid as housemates trade excursion stories, pass along itinerary suggestions, or plan a spontaneous night out.
A private Master Suite on the main floor, just steps away from the great room area, past the powder room, provides personal seclusion along with convenient access. This room’s en suite offers a stately shower and stunning vanity. Downstairs a grand Master Suite includes its own dual vanity, large soaking tub, separate shower, walk-in closet, as well as access to its own covered lanai. On this lower floor two more bedrooms, a full bathroom, and a full-size laundry area complete the accommodations.
Throughout this striking residence, the ambiance imparts observable stateliness with its handsome lighting and upscale art pieces. Yet outside is where the island visitor finds nature’s lighting and best finery laid out for them like no place else. The Mauna Lani Development boasts convenient shopping, enticing dining, cultural encounters and entertainment, along with the sporting life that comes with two award-winning golf courses, tennis center, and relaxing spa. A private Beach Club functions as a unique recreation and amenity area, with soft and safe waves in which to swim, float, snorkel and paddle board like a regular local.
In all, comfort is the ultimate in luxury at this KaMilo town home.

We have been coming to Hawaii for many years and love the lifestyle the Mauna Lani resort and KaMilo has to offer. The beach, pools, shopping, golf, restaurants and spas are all top notch. The KaMilo homes have excellent design and quality, and all the comforts of a million dollar home on the mainland. We cannot be at KaMilo very often, so we want to share this amazing find with you.
This property is managed by Destination Mauna Lani LLC. Shig and Maya Shiwota personally manages it. They are full time residents of KaMilo, are within walking distance of all the properties they manage. Shig is a Director on the KaMilo Home Owners' Association.
A very clean upscale vacation home with all the necessary amenities for a FUN vacation. Comfortable furniture, clean, plenty of amenities, and a great balcony for early morning and evening relaxation. The pool is a just a short walk from the house and tailors to both adults and families. Comfortable bedrooms and large bathrooms. Washer and dryer was great for a longer stay. The private clubhouse and beach was relaxing and had great snorkeling right off the beach. We could even see the whales from the shoreline. I would highly recommend this property. Very affordable for the size house and the benefits.
Beautiful 4 bedroom, which included 2 masters. Clean, modern, every comfort of our own home. Close to the pool and big full wall window doors open to the large outdoor living wonderful lanai. We'd stay again!
We recently celebrated my husband's 80th birthday with a week-long stay at KaMilo. Our group consisted of 15 adults and 8 children, ages 5 to 18. We found three 4-bedroom units in KaMilo that were close to each other and to the recreation area (pools, fitness center, pavilion), all managed by Shig. During months of planning, he was patient, gracious, knowledgeable, and responsive in answering my questions. His "Insider's Guide" booklet was supremely helpful, and his recommendations proved to be spot on.
Our beautiful, spacious units easily accommodated meals that included all 23 of us without feeling crowded. The bedroom configurations worked out perfectly. The unusual (to us) lock-box for entry to the units turned out to be the perfect solution for multiple inhabitants often going their separate ways. We couldn't have been more pleased.
During our stay, my husband and I hosted two catered dinners for our group: an Arrival Dinner prepared in our kitchen by a great chef/caterer from Waimea, and a more formal Birthday Dinner held in the wonderful KaMilo Gathering Place Pavilion (Shig's suggestion) catered by a Mauna Lani chef who used the barbecue and other cooking facilities to create a magical celebratory dinner. We were able to reserve the Pavilion for the whole evening. These dinners turned out to be far more comfortable and congenial than trying to find restaurants for such a large group.
Our group made the most of KaMilo: the lap pool, free style pool, hot tub, and fitness center got a lot of use thanks to being close by and perfect for a short or long visit; the private beach club was enjoyed for its beautiful setting, wonderful snorkeling, and great food at the restaurant. The nearby Foodland was a great convenience. Throughout the island, scenery was spectacular, sunsets breathtaking, and colorful fish and huge honu lounging on the rocks memorable. The Big Island is incredibly well-suited to suit a wide variety of interests.
Supporting and underlying all the fun was the comfort of our clean and luxurious accommodations. The pictures on all three VRBO sites capture the beauty of the furnishings, but being there brings out their ability to house 9 people without feeling at all crowded. Any questions or concerns were addressed easily and immediately.
KaMilo at Mauna Lani is a great location. A KaMilo residence managed by Shig and his wife, Maya, is the perfect answer to whatever your needs might be.
I stayed at this rental with some friends. We all have children and we were so comfortable! The house is decorated beautifully and in great condition. We all had our own separate rooms/bathrooms so we could spend time together in the spaceous common areas or retreat to our rooms. The property management did a great job communicating and responding to inquiries before and during our stay. The Beach Club has some of the best snorkeling right off shore on the island (and I've snorkeled all over the island), also great for small kids. The KaMiloarea is also very quiet and the shopping up the street is very convenient. I would highly recommend staying at this rental!
We loved our "girls" trip here. There were 5 of us traveling and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. This plantation hideaway is so wonderful and not to be passed up. We had plenty of space and enjoyed morning coffee on the lanai and evenings filled with barbecuing and sipping Mai Tais. If cooking isn't your thing there are many restaurants nearby to enjoy a meal out. We walked, played golf, used the exercise room, went on a canal excursion, laid by the pool, snorkeled, paddle boarded and relaxed at the very comfortable Beach Club (paddle boards & snorkeling gear available for rent at the Club). We even enjoyed a picnic lunch while on an adventure in our rental car. Don't miss out on this unique property!
I did a "girls getaway" last November, We rented this amazing villa in Mauna Lani. Everything was spotless, well-kept and stocked with necessities.
We wanted to be close to some top restaurants (Ruth Chris & Tommy Bahama, and Monstera Noodles & Sushi.)
This villa was stunning and furnished like a model home.
We hit the grocery store prior to checking in which saved us a ton of money. We were able to eat breakfast every morning on our spaciuos quiet Lanai before taking our daily walks on the coast. It gave us plenty time to do lots of catching up and laughing. This place would also be perfect vacation stay for two or three couples. There is a large master suite on each floor along with two other bedrooms downstairs.
I loved how the owner sent us helpful information and even receommended a private chef to make us a true Hawaiian dinner.
The villa is convenient to the properties fantastic pools and spas and there is a great gym as well.
I would DEFINITELY return to this place again. We felt "at home" immediately!!!!!! It was a trip of a lifetime!!!
