We had the best week of our lives staying in this gorgeous home. It far exceeded our expectations! It is so beautifully decorated, the kitchen is fully equipped. We stayed in and cooked all meals but one, just to enjoy the comfort of this home. The pool is just steps away, and very relaxing. The bedrooms are cozy, beautifully decorated, with a TV and bathroom in each room. I look forward to staying here time and time again.

Im not sure what this question is.

Couldn't be Better!

  • 5 of 5

It's not very often that you find a rental that is exactly like its pictures, or better, but this one certainly is. It was everything that was advertised and more. Walking in, it looked like a five star resort. What you see in the pictures is exactly what you get. However, what impressed us most was the cleanliness. Many properties seem to receive surface cleaning only, but not this one. Every aspect of the home was perfectly clean and organized. This home seems to be lovingly maintained and cared for. It couldn't be better for a family vacation for the entire family. It is also stocked with everything you could possibly require. We recommend this property 100% and certainly intend to return.

A wonderful week in Mauna Lani Golf Villas

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful place to spend our 50th anniversary with our daughter, son -in-law, and 3 grandchildren. Everyone had plenty of space, a spacious, well-stocked kitchen, nice outdoor kitchen, and plenty of chairs and toys in the garage. The neighborhood was beautiful and quiet. Our favorite place was the fantastic Beach Club! The snorkeling was the best on the island and we enjoyed having the cabanas for shade. We liked having the restaurant available right at the beach - food was good and great service.

Marc was very nice to deal with and we appreciated the kindness he showed us when the pool was needing repairs.

Our family is anxious to come back very soon!! Thank you for a great week in your beautiful home!!

Summer in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Our family just returned from this beautifully appointed condo and had an incredible week. It was clean, comfortable, pleasant and had everything we needed for our stay from kitchen equipment to hair dryers to beach/pool toys for the kids. The location is quiet and serene, yet with lots to do close by - the volcanoes, swimming with the dolphins, Flumin' the Ditch, shave ice, luau at Mauna Kea, snorkeling, deep sea fishing. We very much enjoyed BBQ's on the lanai while the kids played on the lawn and the adults enjoyed cocktails with the trade winds blowing through the palms. The pool is conveniently located across the lawn from the condo and ideal for young children as well as adults, and the beach club with restaurant, bar and lounge chairs on the white sand, made for the perfect island experience. Highly recommend these accommodations!

Absolutely amazing! Definitely recommend!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this fantastic home for two weeks and everything was absolutely amazing! The home is decorated beautifully, yet it is still welcoming and cozy. We had lots of space for two adults and four children. We made several meals in the kitchen and everything we needed to cook and serve meals was readily available. We loved having our morning coffee on the master bedroom balcony, listening to the birds and just enjoying the view. The laundry machine was so handy as we didn't have to bring so many clothes with us. Beach toys and chairs in the garage were great as we were able to use them at the beach. Access to the private beach made visiting the beach a breeze and it is a great spot to swim, snorkel and enjoy the sun. The outdoor kitchen is so convenient and we were able to cook several meals outside. There are only positives on this villa and there isn't a negative that we can come up with. The owner is great to work with and always responds to emails quickly. He is quick to answer questions and solve any issues that arise, which is so important when renting a vacation unit. We hope to stay here again in the future as it really is a beautiful and spacious home.

This home is absolutely beautiful!! I would definitely recommend renting this condo!

  • 5 of 5

I read all of the reviews prior to renting this condo and would have to agree that the home is beautiful. We had family staying in another condo in this complex and would definitely say that ours stood out even though the condos are very similar. The decor was beautiful and the home perfect for our group. We were also pleasantly surprised with a lovely fruit basket upon our arrival which was wonderful for breakfast the next morning as we had a later flight in to the island and not enough time to go shopping for groceries as we were beat by the time our plane landed. The only thing that wasn't perfect was the BBQ grill wasn't working and we planned food around that and didn't realize it until after food was bought. We were able to take food over to the family that was staying in the complex with us, but we surely would have liked to cook and stay in our own as I mentioned our condo was definitely the nicer of the two. I highly recommend renting this condo! You will not be disappointed.

What makes this villa unique

Access to the private Mauna Lani Beach Club. This home is located in a community of 88 homes on over 20 acres with resort style landscaping. The pool and spa feel like your own located just 30 yards across a lawn from the unit.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I’m not sure if I can make this review concise as there is so much to praise! I can't even begin to explain how utterly perfect this property was. We're still talking about it with friends and family after we got home. Typically we enjoy the hotel/resort lifestyle, but with our family coming together from Alaska, Oregon, and Nevada we felt the idea of a larger rental property would better suit our needs. We stayed 15 days and it truly felt like home, in every aspect. In some ways, it was better than home! We had my husband and I, and our two daughters (16 & 7). The incredible master bedroom, bathroom, and walk in closet were a dream. Coffee on the upstairs lanai in the morning is still a fond memory. Our daughters shared the 2nd upstairs bedroom, which was perfect with the 2 twin beds and their private bathroom. We also shared the home with the grandparents who got to stay very comfortably in the 3rd downstairs bedroom for their first ever trip to the islands. For a few nights we also had another family member take advantage of the pull out sofa upstairs. Plenty of room for everyone. The bedding in all of the bedrooms were clean, comfortable, gorgeous and appropriately designed. The abundance of pillows was a plus for my husband. We were quite spoiled with the kitchen and the amenities included. It became funny when one of us would say I wonder if there is a….and of course whatever it was we needed, we were sure to find it. I mean everything! We ate in and grilled on the Lanai nearly every day. It was so nice to be able to enjoy local foods and have such a beautiful and fully equipped kitchen, indoor and out. We set the timer on the coffee pot every evening so we woke up to the aroma of fresh Kona coffee. As I would sit on the lanai in the morning sun, I became quite fond of the birds that would hang out in the yard just feet away. I actually miss them. They were so cute!

We honestly felt we had the best unit in the entire community. It’s the only building on the middle greenbelt and was a 20 second direct walk across the landscaped yard to the pool. However, the pool is visually guarded by a really cool lava mound and great greenery, so you never hear the pool or actually see it from your unit. But the access was incredible. There was hardly anyone at the pool either, so at times it felt like it was all our own. So I will conclude that this is not only everything they claim it is, it’s way better.
