Kohala Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

There's no better place to relax and unwind than in this Oceanfront Penthouse Villa on the shores of Makaiwa Bay and the 800 year old historic fish ponds at Kalahuipua'a. Enjoy spectacular views of the Kohala Coast and Maui, as well as whale watching (Dec - Mar.) while sipping Kona coffee on your spacious, private oceanfront lanai.

This exclusive villa is located in the prestigious Mauna Lani Terraces, part of the Eco-friendly Mauna Lani Resort property. The suite has 1500 sq. ft. with two separate master suites and 500 sq. ft. of lanai. The villa is trimmed in Honduras Mahogany and has beautiful hardwood and travertine marble floors throughout. There is a 24' high vaulted ceiling in the living room & it is furnished with handmade carpets and very comfortable furniture. All 3 of the bathrooms have just been fully renovated with beautiful granite, tile and walk-in showers. The kitchen is fully equipped with everything you could possibly need to prepare a tropical gourmet meal, which you then get to enjoy while seated at the hardwood table out on the main lanai as the sun gently sets into the Pacific. Within the last year brand new washer / dryer, air conditioning system and dishwasher have all been installed. The lani has a beautiful hardwood table and new chairs. There is also a day bed for those lazy afternoons.

You will be 200 steps from the beach and have access to your own private Beach Club. Makaiwa Bay is home of the 'Best Snorkleing Beach on the Big Island'. In addition there is Scuba Diving, Sunset and Whale Watching Cruises, as well as guided Eco-kayak tours. Enjoy Mauna Lani's famous Francis H. Brown golf complex, which includes two 18 hole courses. You are walking distance to a well appointed gym, beachfront yoga classes, historic paths & fish ponds, pristine white sand beaches, and an extensive tennis facility. Experience the magical Hawaiian Healing spa treatments of Mauna Lani's Spa. After a day at the beach and or a round of golf you can walk next door to the award winning restaurant - The Canoe House. Also within walking distance are the Tommy Bahama's restaurant, Ruths Chris Steak House, Monsterra Sushi, as well as the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and the Fairmont Orchid Hotel.

Our manager Cathy Cook is happy to arrange airport pick-up or do pre-arrival personal grocery shopping for your convenience. She can also provide a crib for those parents traveling with infants.

Why The Owner chose Kohala Coast

Our family has been vacationing at Mauna Lani for more than 20 years. We were very fortunate to purchase this spectacular oceanfront home. This villa was lovingly and professionally renovated by its former owner, an interior decorator from San Francisco. It is located in a community of residents that take great pride in their homes and resort. You can't help but unwind in this peaceful location.

Beyond your expectation

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here in June 2016 and had the most luxurious vacation I could ever had in Hawaii

The owner, Michael, is so kind and helpful a lot.

The provided pictures doesn't show how good the house is. The house is much better than it looks in the pictures.

Regarding the house, all the necessary kitchen stuff was fully equipped so we didn't need to buy much thing (like spices, oils, wrap, foils, etc) and a lot of towels were provided so I didn't need to worry about.

Also Mauna Lani terrace is located in a perfect place so you can enjoy the beautiful beach, some well known golf courses and nearby tourist places.

I definitely stay there again if I re-visit Big island.

Thank you Michael for everything.

Our family has visited this beautiful property twice and everything about it is perfect. We have only had the most amazing experience and would recommend this to anyone seeking a true Hawaiian holiday.

Big Island at its Best!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at Michael and Mary-Ann’s villa. When inquiring about the villa, Michael was extremely helpful and responded immediately to all our questions, as well he provided us with very helpful information about the area. Upon arrival we were greeted by Cathy who immediately made us feel welcome.

The location is ideal and the Villa is beautiful and comfortable with an amazing lanai and a breathtaking view. The grounds and pool area are immaculate and very well maintained. The beach area is picture perfect!

We originally planned to dine out some of the time, however we found the villa was so well equipped and the BBQ area so clean, it was a pleasure to prepare our meals.

We would not hesitate to recommend this villa and we hope to return.

Condo was perfect

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed this condo. The owners thought of everything. The furnishings were lovely and very comfortable. We enjoyed the huge table on the lanai. It was great for meals and games. If you haven't been before, the fish ponds are wonderful and there is a great beach. I highly recommend this unit and look forward to coming back.

The condo is upstairs so be prepared to carry luggage upstairs. It wasn't a problem for us but might be for some.

Everything Promised and Then Some

  • 5 of 5

Our trip was fantastic, and the condo as our home base was one of the main reasons. It is really beautiful and comfortable and most important to us, it felt furnished (furniture, kitchenware, utensils, etc.) like I would furnish my own home. The location is perfect, even better than staying in the hotel. Midpoint between the Mauna Lani and the Beach Club is ideal. We walked over to each on multiple occasions and it's a super easy walk. I won't bother including a picture from the lanai; you know what it looks like. Spectacular.

We were threatened with a hurricane during our stay. But we went to Costco upon arrival at the airport and stocked up with steaks, pizza, frozen shrimp and wine. The only impact of the hurricane was that all the employees went home at 2PM. The weather the rest of the day was very pleasant (even the wind was kind of enjoyable and pleasant) and the beaches were accessible. That evening we grilled the steaks by the pool, ate on the lanai and thoroughly enjoyed the evening, watching the hurricane not happen. I felt bad for hotel guest whose only option was a massive buffet at the hotel.

Finally, Cathy, the local contact, is a great representative for the owner. She was incredibly accommodating in making the stay more comfortable, including an air mattress for one of my 20 something sons and boogie boards to play with.

I don’t know when we'll return to Hawaii, but I would absolutely look forward to staying at this place again. Highly recommended.

Best Location, Best Unit, AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING!!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a 10 day stay at Michael and Mary Ann's beautiful unit at Mauna Lani Terrace. Here are some words that describe the unit and the location - breathtaking, stunning, fabulous, amazing, perfect! When Cathy, the manager met us at the unit and opened the door, I was speechless. Pictures do not do this unit justice. When you look in you look straight through the unit through floor to ceiling sliding glass doors that open up to the lanai to amazing ocean views. Wow! The floors are all done in beautiful dark hardwood, beds are incredibly comfortable. There is a daybed on the lanai outside the master which my 12 year old slept on every night. There is AC but when we were there we left the doors open and ceiling fans on and temperature was perfect. The location is perfect - a short walk to the mauna lani hotel where we usually went in the evenings to enjoy sunset from the pools/beach and have a mai tai (best mai tais of our trip and only $8 at happy hour) and the other direction a short walk to the private beach club where we went for a morning snorkel. The snorkeling there is as good as anywhere on the island - including the captain cook monument IMO. Cathy the property manager was great - when I asked if the property had bogey boards, she said no but brought us a few to use during our stay. We loved having this be our home away from home on vacation. We checked out several other of the finer hotels on the island, including the Fairmont, Mauna Kea and Hapuna and Four Seasons - aside from the four seasons, Mauna Lani was our hands down favorite. Having use of all the hotel facilities while staying in a 10 star residence at the price of a single hotel room can not be beat. Owners provide an access card for the beach club and hotel facilities but we were never once asked for it. A hands down winner. Thank you Michael and Mary Ann for sharing your amazing villa with me and my family!! We look forward to coming back!!
