Our family (including two parents, two young kids, and a grandparent) was wowed by this beautiful ground floor condo at Mauna Lani Palm Villas. We were so glad to have this place to call "home" when we arrived, driving here from Kona Airport, exhausted by our 14-hour journey from New England. It is very clean and comfortable, and has air-conditioning for those hot afternoons! The unit has 3 BR, 2 BA, very well laid out. It was so convenient to have a washer-dryer in unit, for use after trips to the beach and pool.
The lanai/patio adjacent to the golf course, was a favourite place to gather in the early mornings to eat breakfast and watch the sunrise. The garden is beautiful and features lush green tropical foliage, coconut palm trees and flowering plants. We saw several geckos and one huge praying mantis when we were there! The kids enjoyed playing in the garden, and in the huge driveway in front of the house.
The unit is steps to the pool and the kids really enjoyed walking over to play in the pool. We also drove to the Mauna Lani Beach Club, and enjoyed swimming in the protected cove. It's great to be able to park at the "owner's/renter's" lot, which is so close to the beach.
It's only a 10-15 minute drive to Mauna Kea beach, arguably one of the most beautiful, and relatively secluded beaches in the world! The boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella in the garage, so generously provided by the owners, were wonderful to use on our trips to the famous Kohala coast beaches.
We drove to the Hilton Waikoloa, Kawaihae, Hawi, Keokea beach park, Pololu Valley lookout, Waipio valley, and we would have loved to have gone snorkeling at Kua Bay/Captain Cook (but we simply didn't have the time for that).
We felt lucky to have called this rental "home" in this magical place on earth, and felt sad to have to leave. We would certainly rent this unit again if/when we return to the Kohala coast of the Big Island.
We stayed for 8 nights, six of them with our daughter, husband, and their infant. Our other daughter, husband, and two young children rented another unit at Palm Villas just two small buildings away. We ate most of our dinners at our unit to accommodate bedtime for the infant. We had a wonderful time. The unit's layout and amenities including the grill were excellent. The lookout from the lanai on to the golf course was relaxing and uplifting. Only Unit A has this vista. It also is only a two-minute walk to the Palm Villas pool, which was great for children. Having access to the Beach Club ocean cove and the calm, fish-filled waters there was another plus. The owners were easy to contact before, during, and after. We will return.
We just recently stayed 5 nights and had a wonderful time. The Palm Villas turned out to be in a great location and the unit was everything you could ask for. The lanai had a great view of the golf course. It was so peaceful. The pool was great and our 4 and 6 year old wanted to go there more than they wanted to go to the beach.
The condo was in great condition and very clean ( I am a clean freak and it totally met my expectations ) . Had a lot of extra supplies that I didn't expect. Had spices, oil, some take away containers and cutlery for picnics, saran wrap etc . Lots of dishes, pots, utensils etc. I have stayed at some places and all you get are the basics and only salt and pepper. There was lots of liquid detergent and dryer sheets. Very well stocked. The garage had lots of beach toys , boogie boards and chairs. Lots of beach towels, towels , sheets etc.
Trude was easy to get a hold of and was always available if I had a question. This was the first time renting a condo unit in Hawaii and I was so pleasantly surprised with everything. The ease of making payments, checking in and checking out. The unit was beyond expectations. We would definitely rent again. Totally loved the location and would recommend Palm Villas to everyone.
Thanks Trude for making out stay so enjoyable.
My family stayed here for 9 nights and loved it. We were so glad we picked the Palms Villas and thought that this unit was the best located in the complex. We loved this view of the course as opposed to the lava views on the other side and really liked having a little yard off the back porch. The condo was immaculate, well stocked and comfortable. The beach toys were a huge help, especially the chairs and unlike many rentals this unit had plenty of beach towels. Trude was very helpful and available with any questions. We will definitely stay here if we return to the big island.
We are doing a little staycation in Hawaii, and this is the perfect place for. It has enough room to comfortably to fit 4-5 people and the property manager Trude is really accommodating. They have detail instructions and directions enclosed before your arrival, which comes really handy when you arrive.
This place is clean, would suggest the cleaners to double check the again before check in since we found most of the towels and sheet are in the dryer still yet. But it is clean.
Would stay again , highly recommended
Really comfortable 3-bedroom condo with a view of the golf course. Access to beach club and safe bay with good snorkeling is a nice feature. Very quiet environment makes for a restful stay.
