Beautiful!

  • 5 of 5
This villa is spacious, beautiful, well appointed and private. The pool and pool deck are spacious with incredible ocean and mountain views, and comfortable furniture. We could actually see whales breaching from the pool deck with binoculars (provided). The lush grounds are gorgeous overlooking golf course. Very large open concept living and dining area, nice kitchen with island and adjoining laundry, two large bedrooms on opposite ends of villa with HUGE adjoining bathrooms and powder room off living area. All furniture and beds very comfortable. Each bedroom has covered lanai that leads to pool and pool deck. Outdoor grill. You have full use of Mauna Kea Resort, including huge pool, beaches with plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. Towels and lounge covers provided. Nice beachside restaurant for lunch and a tiki bar. Very good restaurant for dinner. Luaus and special events available. 5 minutes away in the quaint little town of Kawaihae Harbor are fishing charters, sunset whale cruises and day cruises with snorkeling, dolphin and whale watching with Endless Summer Private Charters.
All that said, the most important perk of this stay is your contact person for the villa and charters, Penny Ritter. She is a local and knows all the cool places to go and will make your reservations. She also stocked the villa with our grocery and wine requests for a nominal fee, all waiting when we arrived. Her knowledge of the area, kindness and concern for your stay to be perfect, is unmatched by anything we've ever experienced. We are going back next year. Can't wait!

Spectacular is an understatement

The pictures do not do it justice, it truly is paradise found. We spent two fantastic weeks here over this past holiday season and hated to leave. Every night the sunsets competed for which was the most magnificent. The full service kitchen and outdoor grill were perfect. The layout of the Villa with two master suites worked even for our three grown children to easily share the 2 double bed master. Our master was magnificent with a wall of glass and a corner seamless window that takes your breath away. The huge U shaped couch enabled all five of us to sprawl out in comfort at the end of the day. The free wireless enabled our son to work from Hawaii as if he was at his Chicago office. Every room had exquisite mountain or ocean views. The comfortable lounge chairs on the private and expansive lanai were heavenly. The small lanai pool was pretty but a little too cold for use this time of year. The resort facilities were first class with full service beach help with umbrellas, cabanas and chairs at the Mauna Kea's beautiful beach. The full service bar and restaurant beach side was enjoyable. Manta Restaurant was the best on property, maybe on island. We could walk to the beach or valet park the car at the front door to the hotel without charge which was beneficial. The best advice the owner gave me when booking the Villa was to contact Penny Vesel the owner of GRASS SKIRT CONCIERGE a private concierge service on the Big Island. Penny was AMAZING and took the stress out of pre-trip planning. She interviewed me ahead of our trip and discussed what activities our family enjoyed and booked everything for us from; where to eat Merrimen's, Seafood Bar and Manta favorites, dive (Kohala Divers), private catamaran MAKANI KAI II out of Kawaihae Harbor complete w/grilled dinner - wild dolphin pod swim and humpback whale sightings, helicopter tour, golf rounds and club rental, Hawi - Big Island Zipline, Mariott Luau, and in-villa massages. She even did grocery shopping ahead of our arrival from my list which was priceless. This truly was the best trip ever! Aloha!!
