We chose to buy at KaMilo because of the reputation the developer has for building high quality homes in Hawaii, as well as the US Mainland. Hawaii is a great place for families to get together and vacation, and we hope that many others can enjoy our beautiful home too!
KaMilo at Mauna Lani is a brand new development in the luxurious Mauna Lani Resort area, and has great amenities such as the two pools, exercise room, and spa area, as well as the outdoor grilling and recreation area. It is a quiet community with friendly residents and staff, and the close proximity to all the resort facilities makes it a perfect vacation destination.
Overall, we found this to be a nice rental in a good location of Hawaii.
Pluses: Being next to the pool was great, had no issue with noise from the pool as the rental has lush vegetation around it to provide noise and privacy barrier. The rental is very spacious. More than enough room for the five of us. Location to beaches is great! Communication with the property managers was excellent. They were responsive and very accommodating. In fact they allowed us to pay a little more for a very late check out due to our late night flight.
Just to give constructive feedback, I'll mention a few things that could be improved upon. The rental is due for a good cleaning. Cleanliness of a unit is #1 on my list, and there are areas that hint at how well a place gets cleaned. For example, ceiling/bathroom fans and AC ducts have significant dust buildup, and while looking for some misplaced items I checked under the beds and saw quite a buildup of dust. Also, the grill is due for cleaning. While the place is tidy, it just needs a good spring cleaning.
There are some areas that need fixing: Several of the rooms had blinds with missing sections. Probably were broken at some point and just not replaced. And, some pieces had been replaced but were shorter in length from the original blinds. Not sure if this was a short-term fix, but this sort of attention to detail is important to renters and this did look neglected. Kitchenware needs to be inventoried. As this is a nice rental in an upscale resort, this should be improved upon to meet expectation. There are a couple of pots/pans with scratched/peeling Teflon that are unusable (unless you want that in your food), and no baking sheet(s) provided (had to used tin foil to heat up our fries)...an inventory and update of kitchen items would go a long way. As another reviewer mentioned, the dishwasher didn't get the dishes clean. Also, one of the patio chairs was visibly broken and set next to the grill - unusable. This should have been tossed, repaired, or stored away before our arrival.
We found the advertised beach equipment in the garage. Very nice beach chairs, great body boards. The cooler is a Styrofoam cooler often sold at the grocery store to get your items home, not really useful for a beach or daytrip adventure. Would recommend spending a small amount of money to provide a real cooler.
Overall this rental was fine. If the mentioned items are addressed, I'd give it 5-stars
The location by the pool and all of the conveniences so close by make this property an outstanding choice. The hosts could not be nicer or more accommodating. We were very lucky finding this vacation home.
Beautiful home with plenty of room for all of us! No Golf cart as advertised. That was extra supposedly, however it did not say that in our listing when we booked. Would have been nice to have had it. Master Bedroom shower does not get hot! Sink/tub does, however shower just shoots out cold water - left it on for over 30 mins! still nothing! Other showers worked fine. One of the pools was closed due to a missing part needing to come all the way from Maui, but it had been closed for over 3 weeks according to other residents. On our last day it finally opened. This was the bigger pool where little kids can swim, so that was sad. Good beaches close by. Shopping close by. We became familiar with the Urgent Cares on the island as we all got sick. (strep throat) - they are not close 40 mins either way - but by the last day we got better. It was a bummer we were not all healthy to enjoy this beautiful place.
Outstanding location in Mauna Lani Resort, quiet and relaxing, yet right next to a facility with two pools, jacuzzis and a workout room, access to which is included. Great unit, clean and well kept, roomy and very open, Hawaiian atmosphere. Close to restaurants and grocery store, with golf cart provided to get to them and to the private access club right on the beach which comes with the unit. Hawaiian sea turtles ("honu") often viewable just a few feet from shore while snorkeling. Perfect Hawaii getaway!
We had another great time in Kona. This was our first stay in Mauna Lani. The home is quite spacious and comfortable. This place had lots of extras like a golf cart, snorkle gear and even bikes. The biggest bonus was use of a Highlander SUV👍. I was really concerned about the A/C because I like it cooler when I sleep. Well you can leave the A/C off all day, turn it on before bed and the whole place cools down within 15 minutes. I was very impressed. The Fairmont Orchid is a 5 minute walk away and is a must see. Kai was very helpful whenever we had questions or concerns.
The Mauna Lani shops are about 10-15 minute walk away which was a bit far for our liking but always nice to get out for a walk.
So to be fair I have just a couple of negatives to mention. I know beds are a personal preference, but we found the beds here too soft for our liking and the pillows are quite flat and dated. We also found that the kitchen cookware was quite worn out and the dishwasher really has issues cleaning dishes so we did a lot of hand washing. The outdoor BBQ works great provided you have a long stick lighter to ignite it.
The positives definitely outweigh the negatives. It's quite a peaceful spot and all the new construction happening on site is a non factor because it's at the other end of the resort.
This was a great place. Great location and all the amenities one needs for a relaxing vacation. It will be our place to stay on the Big Island! Pool just around the corner! Golf cart fun to get around!
