About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms/2 Baths + Loft for BR3 or office (Sleeps 6) & well furnished!!

ATTN: The coconut wireless is telling us that the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel will likely be closing this Fall for remodeling by the new owners. Should this hotel be closes for a year or so rooms will be tough to come by and the area beaches and restaurants will be less crowded. Time to book is now!! This owner complies with all State of Hawaii statutes regarding vacation rentals. The on-island contact/property manager resides in Mauna Lani and his contact information is provided to every guest 60 days prior to arrival when the final payment is due. The GET/TAT Hawaii Tax ID No. is GE-048-069-6320-02 and TA-048-069-6320-02. All guests are greeted upon arrival by our on-island contact. The Golf Villas of Mauna Lani is a NON-SMOKING COMMUNITY.

A word of caution as you are comparing villas: Those owners that are not providing their State of Hawaii GET/TAT Tax ID in the description of their vacation rental are in violation of Hawaii law, most likely because they are not paying their taxes, instead opting for a lower nightly rate and a higher vacancy rate. Our preference is to offer a very well managed villa that is always very clean, never in disrepair and constantly updated for our guests peace of mind and comfort. To accomplish that we have an extremely competent team that makes every effort to insure our guests have a terrific experience when visiting the Big Island and the Mauna Lani resort!

Absolutely fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at about a half a dozen VRBO homes in the past but Roger's home is by far the best. Spotlessly clean, well equipped and having a Property Manager who greets you in the middle of the night is the icing on the cake. Thank you Roger and Bennett for making us feel so welcome.

E23 Golf Villas is the best appointed VRBO property we've ever stayed in!

  • 5 of 5

E23 Golf Villas Mauna Lani was immaculate and we were entertained by the antics of the golfers and the wildlife every morning while we ate breakfast on the deck!

The property is so spacious we never really needed to venture upstairs! It's probably the best appointed VRBO property we've ever stayed in.

Having access to the wonderful members only beach club rather spoilt us, as although we visited other snorkeling spots around the island, we saw everything from an octopus, turtles, a gigantic puffer fish, a colossal eel and about 15 other fish species right from the private beach and it had the benefit of plentiful loungers and a peaceful location!

We thoroughly recommend this property to anyone wanting to stay on Big Island. It has great access to the North and South Kona Coast, but also it's an easy journey over the upgraded road through the centre of the island to the Hilo coast for waterfalls, gardens or volcano viewing.

The efficiency of the owner Roger during the entire booking process and the charming "Bennett", who greeted us on our arrival with lots of ideas for outings and places to eat, helped make our stay even better. We will look forward to returning in the next 2-3 years.

Great Villa- everything you need for a great vacation

  • 5 of 5

Spacious,super clean, all amenities we needed available (great kitchen as well as outdoor BBQ) amazing beach club access (perfect for children) plus a pool within 2 minutes walk, Foodland and restaurants not too far away. If you do stay try Tres Mexican at Waikola Village - delicious!

Roger and Bennett were easy to deal with and really helpful, felt the true Aloha spirit! Thank you for such a great stay, my family and I didn't want to leave.

Highly recommended!

Beautiful stay

  • 5 of 5

Great condo...highly recommended! Roger (the owner) was a pleasure to deal with, honest and personable through the whole process...and Bennett, his property manager, made us feel at home, totally prepared for our stay. The unit is beautifully furnished, well equipped, everything worked well, and the bed was just right for a great night's sleep. Thoroughly enjoyed mornings on the lanai drinking our coffee and drinking in the view to the music of the birds outside. The location is quiet but a very short distance to the beach, shops, and reasonable drive to Waimea or Kona...walking distance to many historic trails as well, if you want a little exercise. Thanks, Roger!

Lovely Location

  • 5 of 5

An immaculate, beautifully-appointed condo with access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club private beach? What's not to love? This place is conveniently located, comfortable, and relaxing, while offering all kinds of amenities for both outdoor and indoor entertainment. Having Bennett as concierge brought a warm aloha to our experience that put the overall experience over the top. Recommend!

Superb Place to Stay on Big Island

  • 5 of 5

This condo has all 5 star reviews for many justified reasons. It has a central, convenient location to the Kohala Coast. It was very clean and incredibly well kept. It truly did have all the comforts of home and more. We have stayed in several VRBO condos on the Islands and this was easily the best provisioned in the kitchen, the bathrooms, the grill area and balcony, the bedrooms and the common areas. Plenty of beach gear as well. Lots of small touches which were really appreciated. All of this makes your stay easy and enjoyable. The quiet, uncrowded location of the complex was a real vacation bonus. Roger made the process very easy and is obviously very attentive to your needs and the condition of the property. "Bennett", the property manager, is delightful, attentive and a wonderful knowledge base. He sincerely takes care of the guests. We recommend it without reservation.
