Overview

About the property

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4-5)

This property is what you have dreamed Hawaii would be … and is actually all about.

And this property is the answer to THREE questions you are asking as you search the Web looking for the “right” place!

1ST QUESTION. Why should I vacation in the Mauna Lani Resort area vs. somewhere else in Hawaii?

Here are descriptive words often used of this prestigious, exclusive area … and for good reasons: World Famous, Triple A, Four Diamond World Class Resort, Mauna Lani & Fairmont Orchid hotels, 14 separate restaurants, 3 pristine private beaches, miles of walking and jogging paths, 2 world renowned golf courses, sunset cruises, fishing, whale watching, scuba, and just about the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii.

2ND QUESTION. Why choose the Palm Villas vs. somewhere else in Mauna Lani?

LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION. The Palms is a privately gated, small group of new condominium homes - perfectly and centrally located in the heart of the resort. The Palm Villas are tucked away between the 18th Fairway of the North Course, the Historical Preservation Area, and the Mauna Lani Spa and Fitness Center. We have our own private waterfall pool, hot tub and fitness center, seconds from your doorstep, set among luscious tropical landscaping. And, you will have access to the pampering Mauna Lani Spa (across the driveway) with its fitness center, 6 tennis courts, lap pool, steam and sauna rooms and, of course, massages.

You are within a short 12 minute, leisurely walk through the fascinating royal fish lagoons and lava tubes in the historic preserve leading to the FABULOUS private beaches and your beach club, the Mauna Lani Beach Club. There you can enjoy lunch, snacks and drinks while lying in the provided, chaise lounge beach chairs. Or just enjoy the fabulous snorkeling, white sand beach, and calm waves. And you can enjoy watching the whales in season, or the large sea turtles coming ashore to bask in the same sun you are enjoying.

A short walk in another direction from your doorstep, brings you to the world class resort hotel with its shops and restaurants. Or a short walk in a different direction takes you to the brand new shopping complex containing the Tommy Bahamas store and restaurant, Ruth Chris Steak House and a wide variety of other boutiques, galleries, ice-cream shop and even Starbucks. And this island is the home of Kona coffee!

So, whether it’s walking to your favorite activity, or throwing your clubs in the car or your cart, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION at the Palm Villas will make your vacation … oh so much better.

And in addition to LOCATION, the Palm Villas offer elegant, luxurious comforts you want and will appreciate while being on vacation. There is nothing basic about our villas.

We have open spacious living areas, gourmet kitchens with designer cabinets, granite countertops throughout, and stainless steel appliances. On the lanai there is a built-in, top of the line, outdoor double wide gas grill, hood with fan and lights and a bar sink. All of this speaks of the comfort, pleasure and rest you will have in these units. You will walk in the door and say WOW, with a smile on your face, knowing the next several days will be spent there.

3RD QUESTION. Why should we stay in this particular unit in Building H at the Palm Villas vs. other Palm Villa units? What is unique about it?

FIRST- This ground floor home is very spacious for four adults to do a stay of any length. Each bedroom has its own bath and the master bath is spacious.

SECOND- As the owner, I am biased, but we specifically chose this location because we believe the H building location is the BEST in the complex. Here is why. It is in the very rear of the complex, away from any possible pool noise, and nestled against the Golf course. And since it is at the very end of the driveway, it gets no road noise. It is secluded, very safe and very quiet.

THIRD- After it was finished, we went way beyond the ordinary to have this place professionally decorated and custom painted with the highest quality furniture, furnishings and art from Tommy Bahamas and others so that you will feel pampered and know that you are not in “just a rental”. You will experience the difference from the moment you walk through the door to when you slip in the amazingly comfortable beds at night. You see, this is where we vacation, and that is how we want to feel when we are in Hawaii.

FOURTH- This is a downstairs unit that faces the historic preservation area, the royal fish ponds and the ocean. Therefore at night, the cool breeze comes through open screen doors and windows of the master suite and living room, and you can hear the soft crash of the waves on the beach.

You can eat dinner outside at night on the lanai and face amazing sunsets or watch seasonal fireworks from both resort hotels over the ocean. Or just sit in the comfortable chairs on the lanai with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine looking over the incredible view. It is Hawaii … and you are on vacation. It does not get any better than this.

FINALLY- From the early construction days to even now weekly, we have prayed and asked our Heavenly Father to place blessings of peace and rest on all the people, of all kinds and nations who rest in this house. Many have remarked on how they experienced the peace of this house.

We are a great value when you add all this up. Plus FREE unlimited phone calls to the US mainland! Check out the pictures and give me a call or email. We currently have space in this unit and perhaps in one of our other larger H building units.

We found the unit to be in a great location, due to the Beach Club Beach access. The unit itself was very clean and nicely furnished. The ammenties included were greatly appreciated. ( beach towels, chairs, coolers, and snorkel gear) A lot of units we have stayed in do no include chairs and towels, which really come in handy. I would say the only thing that we could have used were left over condiments. ( mustard, ketchup, mayo, olive oil) Maybe when cleaning out the fridge leave these items for the next guest. We would definately stay here again and recommend the unit to friends. Mahalo!

Totally comfortable and well equipped

  • 5 of 5

This is our second stay at a Palm Villas property, same floor plan. We find them perfect for our needs, and easy to stay in--appreciate the labels on everything.

Beds very comfortable, if too high for me. Parking is sometimes iffy, but there were always places somewhere.

Thanks for offering a wonderful condo!

Absolutely sensational!

  • 5 of 5

This place is absolutely fantastic. Beautiful, clean, new. Classy. Great location. Every amenity and water toy you could want, all at your disposal. My wife, 3 boys and I had a ball. From library of movies, to ease of access, proximity to sights, snorkeling, wake boarding, cycling, etc, everything was fantastic. The Ellisons have a gem in this place, and their late brother, Breck, would be proud of what they've made of this condo in his honor. We will definitely be back in the next year or two.

We loved our stay here

  • 5 of 5

Our group of 4(two couples) really enjoyed out stay at this condo in the Palm Villas

For us, the location was perfect. We wanted to hike, go to the beach, play golf and explore the Big Island. This was the perfect base and all of our party agreed that access to the Beach Club was key and we used it a bunch. To us, it is the perfect beach with great snorkeling, good facilities (bathroom and on the beach showers) and a wonderful restaurant to retreat to for lunch or drinks later in the day. The beach is just a short walk thru the fish ponds and it can be a bit hot sometimes

The condo garage came filled with many things you would need at the beach. Snorkel great, beach chairs, umbrellas, boggie boards and coalers. We used many of the items and this was very helpful

We had one small issue with a toilet during the stay, and it was fixed by the property management company within hours.

Near the shopping area, the tennis club and many good places to eat close by. The pool was pretty much empty most of the time we were there and it was very well taken care of

Condo was well appointed and we were all very comfortable there. They area is well landscaped and quiet.

Owner was great and answered all questions we had quickly.

Would higher recommend this unit and Palm Villas. We had a great two weeks on the Big Island and would love to return

Highly recommend

  • 5 of 5

Very lovely and well-appointed home. The small touches meant a lot(dishwasher and washing machine pods were provided) and since we had 4 adults and a 10 month old we used both machines daily! They also had snorkel gear and beach towels available for our use!

Loved our stay and highly recommend this property.
