About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 7)

State Tax ID#- W14981481-01 A slice of Hawaiian paradise awaits you and your family. This newly built vacation home is the perfect place to relax and unwind while you experience the beauty and adventures of Hawaii.

Wai’ula’ula at the newly renovated and reopened Mauna Kea Resort, located on the Big Island of Hawaii, is a unique residential community, complete with luxurious condominiums, as well as family oriented activities. The homes are situated in a private and peaceful setting, the perfect locale for your tranquil retreat.

Our Poli Ahu condominium (named after the Hawaiian goddess) is a second story, 3 bedroom, 3 bath duplex, with almost 2,500 sq. ft of living space and panoramic ocean and golf course views. Our home is designer decorated with mahogany wood trim and stone finishes throughout. The workmanship, details and furnishing details are unrivaled by any of the resorts in the area.

our home includes a covered lanai (patio) complete with a wet bar, SubZero under-counter refrigerator and a built-in Wolf stainless steel gas barbecue and rotisserie.

There are two master suites, both of which feature coffered ceilings and walk in closets. The master baths boast soaking tubs and spacious walk-in stone and glass showers. In addition to the third bedroom our living room has a pull out king sofa sleeper allowing you to sleep 8 comfortably. To enhance your travel experience each room is fitted with a European style plush pillow top bed and a choice of hypo-allergenic soft and medium pillows.

The Hale ‘Ikena Amenity Center is exclusive to Wai’ula’ula homeowners and guests, and is the epitome of a fitness, swimming and activity center. Surrounded by a dramatic infinity edge pool which reaches towards the Pacific, there are shallow water sunning areas as well as oversize lounges for relaxing while enjoying the view of the horizon. This is the idyllic spot for a heart-pumping workout, a lazy day at the pool, or even a dinner party using the poolside kitchen or barbeque.

Enjoy the amenities of the world-renowned Mauna Kea Resort, including easy access to beautiful white sand beaches (includes lounge chairs and towels) , award-winning golf courses (hotel guest rates), tennis courts (hotel guest rates), fitness centers, spas, restaurants, as well as hotel concierge services.

Mauna Kea is located along the beautiful and famed Kohala Coast. This area of the island is quiet and peaceful, yet only a thirty minute drive from the airport. The towns of Kawaihae and Waimea are conveniently close, five and twenty minutes respectively, with each offering a wide variety of dining and shopping options.

We hope that you’ll get the chance to experience the beauty and serenity that a stay at Wai’ula’ula offers!

This is a place where you will want to gather with your family and friends year after year.

The State of Hawaii now mandates that all Vacation Rentals maintain a property manager on the island and that we reference our State Tax ID#- W14981481-01. For legitimacy make certain that even though you are renting your vacation home by owner there is a management company available and you ask for the property tax ID#.

Guestbook comments from the owner

My family has had the incredible pleasure of staying at this property multiple times. In fact, we consider this borrowed piece of paradise our home away from home. Simply put, the condo is impeccable with a kitchen so well equipped that it rivals a restaurant! The decor is gorgeous and beautifully maintained. The bedrooms and bathrooms are all large and perfectly appointed. The owners and property manager make your stay memorable from start to finish. It isn't just the views or the easy access to the most beautiful beaches and hotels on the Big Island that make this condo a treasure. There is a warmth and energy about it that keeps us coming back annually. The kids room btw is worth mentioning for any interested moms---walk in closet! Giant (yet tasteful) plush stuffed animal on bed and a washing machine and dryer that are steps away and super easy to use. Same with the fancy dishwashers (plural) and BBQ on the deck. This unit is a gem. My children consider it their favorite place in the world and I have to agree. --Tracy, Scottsdale, AZ

Beautiful setting but a tired unit.

  • 2 of 5

Looking out over the Pacific from your Lanai makes you feel like you are in paradise and in fact, you are. This is a beautiful area in a very nicely build fourplex. However, this unit is a little tired. Carpets are old and stained, artwork is broken, closet handles are broken, cabinets are water/steam stained, plumbing leaked, audio is very dated, charging ports are for your iPhone 4 and TV/cable is old technology. We had a plumber in once and the unit manager in three times trying to correct problems. I would definitely stay in this area again but would choose a different unit.

Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at John's condo, and every thing was flawless. The view was spectacular. The place was tastefully done and perfectly clean. All the amenities were there. Muffet was incredibly helpful to make sure that our stay would be perfect. We also appreciated her recommendation for a great baby sitting service and baby equipment rental place. We had breakfast at Mauna Kea everyday and really appreciated having the parking access. We definitely will be back.

Wonderful home!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful home, fantastic location! The most difficult decision of the day was deciding "the beach of the day".....Mauna Kea or Hapuna Beach. A very relaxing vacation, in a home that contains everything you might need for a stress free vacation. The on site manager was a pleasure to work with, and all of our questions were answered. We were greeted with a wonderful bowl of tropical fruit to help us get in the spirit of a Hawaiian vacation!

We would definitely choose a vacation again at this location. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home!

Perfect Place

A trip to remember

  • 5 of 5

The condo was fantastic and exactly as depicted in the pictures. The views were wonderful and the proximity and access to the resorts was great. I would stay there again in a minute and recommend it to anyone traveling to the Big Island.

This condo is a great property with all of the amenities included for a wonderful vacation at Mauna Kea.

It is close to the spa and everything in the condo is as described on the website. I was under the impression we would be closer to the beach from the web page but it was not an issue since the beaches were on property and were wonderful. The beaches were a quick drive from the condo. The onsite manager is wonderful and most helpful to any concerns. I would recommend this property to any of my friends.
