About the property

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.

Oceanfront Penthouse Villa at Mauna Lani Terrace
average rating of 5.0 based on 20 reviews

Excellent stay: Like staying at a luxury resort, but more space and much quieter. Amazing Location!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this beautiful apartment for a week in early January. The location is superb, overlooking the fish ponds and out to the ocean. We also had full access to the Mauna Lani resort. At night, we opened the doors (screens closed) and heard only waves and palm leaves blowing in the wind. We never heard anyone else! We snorkeled at the beach, went scuba diving with the scuba center, and hiked up and down the coast without using the car. The supermarket near by (short drive) was very convenient with very reasonable prices. Michael and Mary-Ann were very helpful before our visit and called to make sure everything was going well. Cathy was local and provided us lots info and came in mid way to clean the entire apartment. We will be back - Thanks!

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place:). It was the perfect set-up for a family of four and the villa itself is lovely. I don't believe the photos do it justice. The property itself has all you need for a perfect vacation but other shopping and dining is just a short drive away. Definitely would have stayed longer if we could have.

Villa at Mauna Lani Terrace, Kona Coast Waimea, Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

We so enjoyed a much too brief stay at this spacious two bedroom villa. It is beautifully decorated, comfortable and the Lanai offers exceptional views of the ocean and pool. The overall property of Mauna Lani Terrace is well cared for with a nice size pool, ponds and a short walk to the ocean. The owners were very helpful and great communicators. The property management is also excellent with a housekeeping crew of honesty and integrity. They found and returned to me an expensive bracelet I carelessly left behind. Mahalo all.

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.

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.
