Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Welcome to the world class Mauna Kea Resort. A place where dreams come true!

Relax in this beautiful ground floor condominium, located in the newest of the resort developments known as Wai'ula'ula' -- with its breath-taking views of the Pacific, its golden sunsets year-round, and it access to the beaches and golf courses of both resort hotels -- Mauna Kea and the Hapuna Beach Prince.

Gather in the great room watching a movie on the HDTV flat panel TV or enjoy the attention to detail of the interior design: the beautiful mahogany cabinets, Berber carpeting in the bedrooms, slate tiles throughout the rest, the sculptured granite counter-tops, the exquisite art work throughout the condominium like a hand-made Hawaiian quilt of the Hawaiian flag or the showcased Hawaiian petroglyph stones.

Connected to the great room is the gourmet kitchen with breakfast bar for casual dining. Prepare epicurean delights like a chef using Wolf gas range, and SubZero and Fisher & Paykel kitchen appliances.

Sleep in one of two master king suites with private lanai access, soaking tubs, walk-in showers, and dual sinks in marble counter-tops. Or, feel like a true Hawaiian as you sleep in the twin bed surf room (king conversion available) where you can have fun playing board or video games. All bedrooms include secluded televisions and DVD players.

Take a one-minute walk to the Wai'ula'ula' Amenities Center with its complete fitness center, enchanting infinity pool and water terrace, hot tub, full kitchen and dining room, plus another HDTV flat panel TV to accommodate social events.

Your purchased resort membership gives you full access to both the Mauna Kea and the Hapuna Prince with it's world-renown beaches, irresistible swimming pools, quaint shops, gourmet restaurants, world-class golf courses, tennis courts overlooking the ocean, the brand new Mauna Kea fitness center.

About Donna Brucato

We are so blessed to own this condo and even more that so many have found it to be a home away from home who have been with us since the beginning. Watching your kids grow up in is so amazing and we thank you! - The Brucatos

Donna Brucato purchased this condo in 2007

Why Donna Brucato chose Kohala Coast

We have been to many islands, but there is no place like home at the Mauna Kea Resort. The seclusion and peaceful surroundings enhance a true 'get-a-way from it all' vacation with families and friends. The beaches at each hotel and the service that is part of the resort amenities may resemble that found at other resorts, do not come close to that offered at the Mauna Kea. Not a tiny piece of a beach shared by thousands, but a big piece of the beach, shared by few.

What makes this condo unique

Our condo is situated in the perfect location. Ocean views with palm trees blowing in the wind. Right next door to the Amenity Center with an infinity pool, kiddie pool, hot tub, BBQ area, workout facility, full kitchen, living room, and media/game room for use by any guest. Not to mention both hotels just minutes away!

Another amazing vacation in paradise

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay at Donna's beautiful home in paradise. Our first trip in October 2014 was with another couple, no kids, and we had an amazing time. This time we had two couples, two adult children and our toddler. Once again, our stay could not have been better. This home is beautifully decorated and the views are amazing. It is conveniently located right next to the amenity center and pool, which was great for our little one who wanted to swim every day. The highlight as always was the use of the Mauna Kea and Hapuna hotels and their beaches. Our son loved his first time swimming in the beautiful ocean at Mauna Kea! We had an amazing time at the beach, the pool, and just spending time on the lanai having family dinners watching the sunset and the Fourth of July fireworks.

Donna and Marcie make renting this home easy, and even provide you with a bottle of wine as a welcome gift. The home had a pack-n-play and highchair for our son, as well as beach and pool toys. We could not have asked for more. As usual, we were sad to leave when our week was over. We are already looking forward to our next trip to the beautiful Wai Ula Ula!

Keep Coming Back!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in this beautiful Hawaiian Home 8 times, and I would not even consider looking for another. This is one of the most beautiful homes, in a tropical paradise. The home is so comfortable and well equipped, that we alternate each night…eat out, and cook in. The lanai is perfect for cooking in the wonderful kitchen, and enjoying the sunset outside. The inside is decorated very beautifully , but comfortable.

The Mauna Kea resort in second to none in the world, and you have access to everything at the resort, as well as the Hapuna Beach Prince. The beach has been voted best in the world over 10 times. The work out center and pool at Wai’ula’ula is right next door.

The owners are a delight to work with, and Donna has made this a very pleasant and easy experience.I have traveled over with 2 other couples, and well on other trips taken my 2 children, and their spouses. It is ideal for 6 people.

Donna, thank you for making this feel like a second home to me and my family. Mahalo!

Simply fantastic

  • 5 of 5

We spent most of July and August on the islands. Our week in this condo was by far the best! The condo is lovely and very welcomming. The possibility to use the great pools and beaches at the two hotels makes the stay tremendous. Thanks for a fantastic stay!!!

Fantastic Trip!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Donna! We had a fantastic trip. The condo was just as the pictures. It was beautiful and clearly well maintained. The weather was fantastic, no hurricane issues, enjoyed access to both resorts. It was a very relaxing family vacation with the kids, just what we were hoping for. You were great to work with, hope to stay there again someday. Thanks for everything!

Absolutely wonderful home! Can't wait to return!

  • 5 of 5

We spent the first week of our vacation at a resort on Maui...while we really love Maui, by the time we got to the Big Island, we were ready for the peace and seclusion the Big island has to offer. We were so pleased when we reached this wonderful home. It went above and beyond our expectations. The photos don't really do it justice. What you can't see is how organized and clean the home is. The kitchen is stocked with everything you could imagine. We ended up cooking a few meals with friends that were staying at the resort because we enjoyed the home so much. We were traveling with three kids, our daughter had her own second master and our boys shared the twin room. The twin room was a little boys dream, surf themed and it's own tv and xbox to play after a long day at the beach (beach toys, snorkels, and boogie boards in the garage). We enjoyed evenings on the lanai watching spectacular Hawaiian sunsets.

We had never spent much time on The Big Island so we were not sure what to expect. One word of advice is to do your big shopping on your way in. The restaurants close early some nights and seem to have odd hours. We loved the location of the home. We were able to explore north and south easily (don't miss the adorable town of Hawi). Leaving this home and our time there, we really felt like we got to experience the island lifestyle. Something that we have never felt after leaving Maui.

Our only regret is that we didn't have more time there . . .thank you so much for sharing your wonderful piece of paradise. Mahalo!
