The Palm Villas pool and fitness center is right outside our door. The pool features lush gardens, a waterfall and a variety of seating and swimming areas. The large built in spa (hot tub) that seats 12.

Chaise lounges surround the pool so you can soak up the sun between dips in the pool. A barbecue area facilitates entertaining and an outdoor lifestyle.

This white sand beach features covered cabanas, calm surf, and a restaurant/bar serving lunch, snacks, and drinks. The snorkeling at the Beach Club is excellent.

We have all of the gear that you will need for a day at the beach including beach towels, snorkels, fins, cooler, etc. If you prefer to drive to the beach, a key card is provided for the private parking lot.

Wonderful unit, excellent location!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 4 absolutely loved staying in this unit. Having 3 bedrooms was amazing with 2 teens - 1 boy, 1 girl. The unit is stylish, very clean, extremely well stocked as far as kitchen, linens, towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear, and so on. Totally comfortable and classy. The master bedroom is huge. Having a washer and dryer was a big help, just know that the washer is a little loud and the dryer needs a couple runs per load. The pool is lovely, as are the grounds. The beach club is just beautiful, with great snorkeling very close to shore, paddle boards, classy restaurant. We honestly didn't know where it was, but it is on South Kaniku Drive. We grew very fond of the little supermarket at the Shops and were there most days. Saved a lot of money on restaurants. Do try the vegan/vegetarian place at the Shops (no matter your food preferences). If you happen to be there on July 4, as we were lucky enough to do, go to Turtle Independence Day! Management was very responsive and helpful.

The location was great for day trips north/east like Pololu, Waimea, Hamakua Coast, Waipio and even Hilo. Or south to Kailua-Kona and snorkeling at Captain Cook.

Highly recommend!!!

Great 7 days at Palm Villas

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were on the Big Island on business. We stayed at Palm Villas in unit C-22 and liked the quoted gated community. It was beautifully landscaped and offered more than we expected. We took advantage of the pool and the other facilities.

We stayed 7 days and took advantage of the grill often. The kitchen had almost everything we needed and could "run" to the near by stores for what we needed.

I walked to the great beaches that were a comfortable distance away.

We hope to return to the Big Island and Palm Villas(C-22) again soon.

My husband and I with our son and wife and our grandson had a wonderful stay at your condo. The rental process was seamless. The unit is nicely decorated, very clean and well maintained. We had plenty of beach towels, snorkel gear and boogie boards etc. There was ample space for the five of us. The Kitchen was well stocked and we were able to grill almost every night on the built-in grill. The grounds were stunning and included a spa and workout room and we were able to use the gated pool every day. We also were within a 15 minute walk from the complex to the Beach Club, The Shops at Mauna Lani, and a number of eating establishments. We plan on returning and have already booked for next year.

We have been coming to Mauni Lani for over 20 years and have stayed in most of the developments on property. By far this unit did not meet the standards one would expect from this resort. Foremost the unit was devoid of furnishings. There was only a tv stand in the bedroom which required that we live out of our suitcase for two weeks and had to use the ironing board as a bedside table. The other two bedrooms had no tv and only a chest in one and a small desk with no chair in the other. The living room had one lamp and no coffee table. Also the towels and bedding were of low quality and very shabby and even appeared to be soiled. The kitchen was also not equipped to meet the needs of anyone wanting to utilize it for cooking and eating. There were only a few random dishes and eating utensils. Also the cabinets were empty. No staples were provided, ie salt, pepper, sugar, coffee filters, foil, etc. We usually entertain friends during our stay but this unit offered nothing to accommodate that not even any placemats. When we arrived the air conditioner was locked at 75 and could not be adjusted to a lower temperature. The manager did get this resolved in a few days but until then we got very little sleep. We also had issues with the tv which was also resolved by providing a new remote but the picture quality on all tv's was very inferior. I will say that the development is lovely and the grounds are well kept and conveniently located but this unit leaves a lot to be desired. We would not rent again and hope that no one else has to experience what we did.

Owner's Response: All of our guests are different and everyone is looking for something slightly different in a vacation rental. We have had close to 200 satisfied guests stay in this unit. Many of them return year after year. In fact, the guests who stayed in this unit immediately prior to the guests who provided this review have already booked for 2017. The owner of this unit is a professional decorator and has provided a modern, airy, and efficient use of space in the furnishings. If this is your style, you will love this unit! We pride ourselves on going the extra mile for our guests. We ask everyone to let us know within 24 hours of arrival if they need anything to make their stay more comfortable and we do our best to provide it. The important ingredient is communication. When guests tell us that they need something up front rather than after they leave, we are more than happy to provide it. That being said, we recognize that our units get a lot of traffic, especially during the holidays, and we continuously need to replace worn, broken, or lost items. All of the linens and towels have been replaced in this unit and additional dinnerware has been provided. Guests who need additional supplies only need to call and request them.

8 days in paradise

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I attended a medical conference at the Mauna Lani hotel. This resort and condo complex exactly what the doctor ordered. Trude was great to work with. The prior positive reviews are spot on. We loved the walks right out of the complex, the beach club, and the pool in front of the unit. Although we stopped at Costco we found the store a few minutes away to be fairly priced and well stocked. We cannot wait to return.

Great Condo In Paradise!

  • 4 of 5

This is an amazing location! There are trails everywhere to take you down to the Beach Club(amazing snorkeling, ample covered chairs and shade too if you want it!);short 5-10 min walk to coffee,shopping and dinner; and good island location as well for glorious sunshine!

The condo was exactly as pictured. There were sufficient supplies and most all the pans etc. you would need for cooking. The property managers were awesome! Very responsive to our requests and very timely in their replies.

Our one issue was with the incredibly hard, uncomfortable bed in the master. Neither my husband or I slept the first night after which we promptly drove to Costco to purchase a memory foam topper! I am a backpacker who is used to sleeping on the ground (with my sleeping pad), and what I wouldn't have given for that sleeping pad! Unfortunately we read in their on-site guest book that many guests have complained about this issue for several years. A 2" piece of regular foam was on top of the mattress, however with no box spring this wasn't helpful. A proper box spring and mattress set is needed here. A platform bed, with drawers under it that are hard to open and close, provide the only folded storage in the bedroom. There is a huge walk in closet, but a Hawaiian vacation wardrobe only includes a couple of items to be hung up! No bedside tables, just shelves that pull out of the bed, which you bang your shins on if you get up at night. I would recommend this unit in a heartbeat, but you have to be aware that it might involve leaving your clothes in your suitcases and making a trip to the store for a memory foam mattress.

I never leave negative reviews, but in this case I wish someone who wrote in the guest book had written an on-line review, so we knew what we were in for. We would have brought our back packing sleeping mattresses!

Again, the property is great! The location can't be beat. The pool and hot tub are awesome, but be aware that they shortened the hours to be only open until 9pm. The reference manuals in the unit state 10pm.

The property is incredibly quiet most of the time. Currently, Mon- Friday from 7am-4pm there is construction noise at two of the properties within sight and multiple construction vehicles going by, but we were up and active so it wasn't a big deal for us.

Every day we hiked, swam, snorkeled, boogie boarded and ran! There is so much to do on this Island. It was our first time to the Big Island and we certainly be back!

Owner's Response: We recognize that some people like their mattresses more on the firm side and others like them on the soft side. We have purchased and installed a new, extremely thick and soft mattress topper for this bed.
