A wonderful, restful place to spend a relaxed vacation! The accomidations are exceptional and very well furnished. A very spacious home-away-from-home, with an intimate feel but allowing privacy to read or snooze when desired. The kitchen is well supplied with excellent appliances and the laundry is well designed, making for a very relaxed holiday. The high speed wireless internet is very good, allowing for easy access to the web for browsing and researching day trip plans. The Palm Villas properties are very well maintained making the overall environment restful. The nearby beach club, easily reached by a short walk of under 30 minutes, has an exceptional beach for snorkeling; the water is fairly calm, allowing even timid swimmers to feel comfortable and enjoy the wonderful variety of tropical fish. The beach itself is beautiful and very peaceful; a wonderful place to read, enjoy the sun and take in the tropical atmosphere. The nearby shops in the Mauna Lani or other close by shopping centers provide full service shopping both for daily needs as well as for gifts. The Mauna Lani area is an ideal base for island exploration, both south to Kona or east to Hilo and on to Volcano. I have stayed at this property several times and continue to come back because it offers the wonderful restful benefit of being a true home-away-from-home.
