Lovely owners

  • 4 of 5

We come to Mauna Lani few times a year. We love the private beach and close shopping and dining.

The owners were so easy to work with and made sure all of our needs were met.

Upon arrival, we noticed the lovely furnishings and comfort of the condo. The lanai was comfortable and allowed us to stretch our eyes over the golf course. so quiet and refreshing.

The kitchen was well stocked and had everything we needed.

The master bedroom and bath were well appointed and quite comfortable.

The only downside was a few issues with housekeeping and electrical.

When we let the owners know of issues, they were handled.

I'd recommend

Awesome Townhome

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in the Villa for a fantastic week and enjoyed every moment of it. What we loved best about our vacation was that "at-home" feeling. Besides the amount of space we had - over 2000 sq feet for the 3 of us, we loved the fact that we had both levels to ourselves. We don't like living on top nor below another family. We only had neighbors to the side of us and never did we once hear any of them! The layout is amazing with the bedrooms located upstairs while the living space was on the lower level. The gourmet kitchen is large and has everything needed (note to self: No need to pack spices, aluminum foil and plastic wrap in the future). The kitchen had everything imaginable! We particularly enjoyed the Viking Grill on the Lanai and used it frequently. We picked up Steaks, Chicken, and Salad from Costco and supplement it with locally grown fruits for a delicious dinner. Having a washer / drying in the villa was great as we were able to do laundry every few days. Although this was our first time to the Big Island, it won't be our last. In the past, we've vacationed primarily in Maui. But having now spent 2 weeks on the BI, we can honestly say that we enjoy the BI as much, if not more than Maui. We love the serenity, the quaintness and the laid-back lifestyle of the Big Island. We loved the Farmer's Markets particularly for the hard-to-find island fruits like Cherimoya, Jackfruit, and Soursop (which btw, is hard to find on Maui). While the BI is big and driving is required to the beaches, markets and shops (only the Shops at Mauna Lani are within walking distance), we got used to driving to where we needed to get to. We really liked the location of the Mauna Lani Fairways as it allowed us to get to Waikoloa, Waimea, Hilo, Kalapana, and Kona easily via the Hawaii Belt Road or Saddle Road. It was also very close to some of the best golf courses in Hawaii. We purchased a Hawaii Golf Deals Card and used it extensively at the 3 Waikoloa Courses, Hapuna and at Mauna Kea. We had a fantastic time on the Big Island of Hawaii and our accomodations added so much more to our vacation. We wanted a place where we would enjoy hanging out and not just a place to "come back and crash". It's a little piece of heaven right in paradise!

Awesome Condo!!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I truly enjoyed this 2 story townhome. It was perfect for our family. It was quiet and private and finely appointed. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed for cooking. The condo was well maintained and had really nice furniture. The King bed in the Master was really comfortable! We especially enjoyed the outdoor lanai with built in BBQ and the top floor lanai offered beautiful views.

Fantastic!

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Big Island. We got lucky to find this villa. It was everything we had hoped for and more. The location was quiet and private. The interior was finely appointed and the owner was very nice and extremely responsive. The villa was well stocked as well. The grounds of the resort were beautiful. We just loved everything about our vacation and were really happy we booked this villa.

First time using VRBO. Hard to top.

  • 5 of 5

I usually stay in hotels in Hawaii. This was my first time using VRBO. Great Condo built in the 2000's. 1/2 mile from the beach and very well equipped. Looks just like the pictures. With a stop at Costco for food, you need nothing else but a swimsuit and flip flops for your vacation. Shawn was an excellent host and had lots of suggestions for sites and activities. Mauna Lani is a small community with shops, restaurants, and 2 hotels the Fairmont Orchid and the Mauni Lani Bay Hotel. (It felt much more homey than massive Waikoloa Village down the road) Both hotels have nice protected beaches with equipment rentals and beach side cocktails. The condo also comes with access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club, a nice little bay with equipment rentals and excellent snorkeling. No real waves for surfing or boogie boarding but many cabanas and lots of coral and marine life. The snorkeling was as good as what we got on the snorkeling cruise. We rented an electric cart for getting around. Both hotels let us valet them or just park them in front to use the beach, and the Mauna Lani Beach club has designated electric car parking up close. This is a great condo and a great destination for families because of all the protected coves.

First stay, perfect! Can't wait for the next time.

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very clean, spacious, and lovely to come home to at the end of the day. It is in walking distance (5 min.) to beautiful beaches and walking trails. I came here with a girlfriend for 2 weeks and we thouroughly enjoyed ourselves. It is located close to shopping, has a full kitchen with everything you might need and a gas BBQ on the lanai. The pool in the complex was very nice and never busy. We also took advantage of the Mauna Lani Beach Club, which has beautiful beaches and a good bar, and food. The owner Shawn was always very responsive to any questions that came up during our stay. I am looking forward to the next stay here!
