About John M.

The Owners live in Minnesota and started coming to Hawaii 18 years ago and have never tired of it. In their words.... For us, coming to the Big Island in the winter from snowy Minnesota is the best way to escape the cold and ice. Our favorite activities are snorkeling, golfing, and hiking. We simply cannot get enough of the beautiful ocean tide pools of swimming green sea turtles and jumping whales. The temperate climate, the unique Hawaiian culture, the seafood, the flowers, the stunning beaches and the evening sunsets make us long to come back each time we leave. Our children look forward to each trip here, where they can enjoy a laid back lifestyle and take much needed vacations from their busy lives. It has become a place where our family gathers and enjoys our time together. We love the endless opportunities to sightsee, whether it is a beautiful drive up the Kohala coast, or activities in the ocean, mountains, or parks. We like it all…hiking, biking, golf, snorkeling, diving, horseback riding or just lying on a beach. We have never tired of each day ending with a stunning sunset over the ocean less then 0.4 miles from our home. Did I mention there is an active Volcano on the island?

John M. purchased this villa in 2013

Why John M. chose Kohala Coast

We simply love Hawaii!

After many years of visiting different Hawaiian Islands, we decided to make The Mauna Lani Villages on the Big Island our second home. Our Villages home offers the unique chance to be close to great restaurants, hotels, shopping, beaches and sunsets. The private Mauna Lani Beach Club, which is available to our renters, is a large private beach with a great restaurant. In addition to The Villages amenities center, which offers a community pool, spa and workout facility, we are close to the Mauna Lani Fitness center.

What makes this villa unique

After renting in many different complexes in Mauna Lani, we fell in love with The Villages. We think our one level home is beautifully constructed and is of quality design. It has a huge updated kitchen with great air flow to enjoy Hawaiian breezes, with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower. Each room is comfortably decorated with Pacific/Asian art and antiques. We have tried to obtain art that reflects Hawaiian culture from the large arts community that resides on the Big Island. Each bedroom has its own TV, walk-in closet and full bathroom. The office offers free internet, and a printer/fax machine. The living room TV allows for rental of Netflicks and Apple TV. The vaulted mahogany living room moves seamlessly from an inside environment to an outside lani. The lani offers unobstructed views of the golf course and mountains. The pool and spa offer a comfortable way to unwind after a day of sightseeing.

The Best Renter Experience Ever

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting in Hawaii for the last 10 years or so, yet this is my first review. Booking was extremely easy, I like the availability calendar feature on the website, since everything I do is last minute it speeds the process. When I booked I mentioned we were celebrating my mother's 88th birthday as a throw away comment. On the day of our arrival I got a text welcoming us, it was incredibly detailed on how to get to the property and more importantly how to get in the gated community after hours. When we opened the door balloons and a birthday lei along with a gift basket were waiting for my mother, nice touch. The air conditioning was also turned on so the house would be cool for our arrival. The house was perfect for 7 people. The furnishings were more or less new and in good condition. The lanai had a pool and hot tub. All the appliances were top end and the ice maker worked. The property was immaculate, had plenty of towels, detergent and bleach for the washer and condiments/spices in the kitchen. The garage had bikes and beach toys. In a nutshell, this was the nicest, most user friendly place we ever rented. Kudos to Diana from the reality company for making our experience on the big island a happy one.

Amazing House and Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Let me start off by saying that my family usually stays in resorts and have never rented a home for vacation before, so we were a little hesitant about booking this house. But Villa Hui was a WONDERFUL place to stay. We just got back from our amazing trip to the Big Island and we couldn't have been happier with the house. My teenagers loved having their own rooms on the other side of the house and having that wonderful pool looking on to the golf course was fabulous. The house was in a great location. We drove two minutes to the private beach access because we brought a lot of gear (boogie boards, paddle boards, chairs, etc.) that the owners provided, we walked and biked to dinner because it was so close and we shopped and ate at the market near by and shopped at the shops at Mauna Lani. The finishes in the house were just wonderful - everything is high end. The outdoor shower, the Hawaiian artwork and the sliding doors that open up completely to the outdoors were my favorite touches. The owner spared no expense and it made our stay just wonderful. Do not hesitate to book this home. You will not be disappointed. I have a feeling we will be back!

Special thanks to Diana (property manager) who was so organized and on top of everything. She made booking this house so simple!

Beautiful home with amazing pool, attention to very detail and best property manager. Great for kids

  • 5 of 5

We had a fantastic visit at this beautiful property. The home has everything you need to make your vacation relaxing and stress free. The kitchen is stocked with everything you can imagine even down to the amazing spices drawer. Although there is an awesome dining table for ten and a large eat in island in the kitchen, we used the outdoor grill and dined outside most dinners which was so peaceful and surprisingly cool and comfortable despite the warm weather.

THe pool and hot tub were great and perfect for our little ones. THe garage is full of pool toys, high end bikes, snorkel gear and beach accessories. THe private beach club is only a short drive and really nice. The cabanas are free and first come basis. We never had trouble getting one. THe rooms and bathrooms were all spacious, clean and included walk in closest, wonderfully comparable bedding and even an outdoor shower that was to dye for!

We have stayed in other homes that require you to buy items like laundry soap and napkins but this home is fully stocked with everything including paper products, laundry products, extra soap,and much more.

The property manger, Diane, who is AMAZING, went above and beyond. SHe responded within seconds of our every request, gave us great food recommendations and even came over to deliver a brand new air mattress for our little one who decided she didn't want to share a bed with her big brother. SHe and her husband also came over personally to check on and fix a small pool problem and was a wealth of knowledge on local artist and gave recommendations for art dealers. THe home has some really amazing local art that we fell in love with!

THere is a grocery store super close by although I would recommend making a trip to Safeway in Kona if you are staying for a week or longer. A the local market was great it obviously more choices and better prices at Safeway.

You won't be disappointed by this home if you want high end experience and a very relaxing atmosphere. The only complaint is that you can't see the ocean from the house but the loss of the view of the beach was made up for by so many other positives!

the villages is a very nice gated community.

  • 5 of 5

The single family residence I.d. #119351 is a great home. The house is perfectly laid out for 3 couples or a large family. The villages in general are very close to shopping, restaurants and the beach, not to mention a grocery store a few blocks away. This home was very clean, the manager was very pleasant and we were welcomed the minute we walked in the front door! Everything from the beds to the couches to a washer and dryer was perfect. You would not have to leave the property your entire stay if you didn't want to. Hot tub and pool were clean and refreshing. I would highly recommend this property.

Owner's Response: We loved having you at Villa Hui and so glad you enjoyed your stay. We try to explain to our guests how conveniently located this home is and such a short walking-distance to the amenities of the Resort but until they experience it, it is hard to visualize. We appreciate your "painting the picture" for others and hope they will appreciate your recommendation - we certainly do!

Amazingly fantastic!!!

  • 5 of 5

We rented Villa Hui for a pre- Christmas family vacation. There were 5 of us, including my elderly mother. First of all - the property is spacious - with everyone having their own private bath, The rooms were decorated beautifully - TVs in every room, there is a huge kitchen - with everything you would need, spacious living area - with enough seating for 5 or 6 comfortably. The back yard is awesome - it has a BBQ; so you never have to leave, with a great sitting area that looks out onto the golf course. We definitely wanted a pool and hot tub for our vacation, and this was perfect.

My mom was able to get around the property with ease and enjoyed sitting in the back yard & pool, while the younger generation went off to do our thing for a couple of hours. The garage is loaded with everything you would need for the beach....chairs, bikes, paddle board, floaties, snorkel gear etc.

The property manager, Diane, even made sure there was a comfy/high beach chair for my mother when we took her to the beach. The private beach that you have access too is also perfect - Especially for families and the elderly. This place is first class.....we really wanted for nothing during our stay. Diane was available for us if we had any questions or concerns.

Trust me - you will not be disappointed!!!

Quiet surroundings, but so close to the fun!

  • 5 of 5

I travel LOTS within the Hawaiian Islands as well as all over the mainland, and I have very high standards. Villa Hui exceeded my expectations (!). In my experience, Villa Hui is superior for many reasons, but don't miss these solid points:

1) elegant and stylish decor, spacious and impeccably clean

2) throughly appointed provisions for the complete kitchen and any beach outing (snorkeling gear, bikes, beach chairs, cooler)

3) a pool all to yourself- awesome!

4) location location location

The Mauna Lani Beach Club was quite easy to get to, calm and not ever crowded, lots of open cabanas. We never had to wait for a table at lunch when we ate at the restaurant.

I also took advantage of a local grocery delivery service (Going4Groceries) and a store that delivered wine (Kona Wine Market). We went to the restaurants nearby (7 -10 min walk) and enjoyed Monstera Sushi and Under the Bodhi Tree.

Make it easy on yourself and choose this beautiful place, Villa Hui for your vacation holiday. You will love it!
