As past residents of Hawaii for 35 years, Dave, and his wife Sandy have the proud owners for 10 years. Mauna Lani Terrace won the coveted 'Best Building Award' for the State of Hawaii in 2003. Many happy visitors: 'Our 10th visit to the Mauna Lani Terrace,--Yours is our favorite'(The W family from San Francisco)Other comments:'not only beautiful, but comfortable,Yours is our favorite,Your place is terrific,Views were spectacular,Most relaxing vacation ever,We love your condo,We will be back next year.' Dave & Sandy's H303 has earned a very loyal following of return guests. A large percentage of their guests return year after year.
Dave and Sandy have been the proud owners of Mauna Lani Terrace H303 since June, 2003. We use it for a second home also. By staying in it as often as possible, Sandy can continue to think of ways to make it more comfortable and luxurious. She has supervised the extensive remodeling over the past two years. As 35 year residents of West Hawaii, we have a unique insight into what pleases visitors to our Paradise. About 50% of our rental days are return guests. Many of them had already discovered Mauna Lani Terrace. Once they stay in H303, they virtually always return to it.
Dave & Sandy purchased this condo in 2003
In June of 2003 we sold a beach property in California and needed to replace it with a property on the Big Island. Since I was a real estate broker here since 1979, I had a unique knowledge of every luxury condo complex on the Kohala coast and knew that nothing compared to Mauna Lani Terrace. Sandy and I toured the 7 or 8 Terrace condos for sale at the time. We will never forget the day that we opened the door of H303. We could see down the hall through the living room we saw a view that took our breath away, the most beautiful ocean view that we had ever seen. It was love at first sight. Sadly, it was the most expensive of all of the condos that we viewed. More then we thought we could afford. However, with my many years of experience negotiating real estate, we miraculously made the deal. To this day, when we walk through the front door of that exquisite condo, we still can't believe it is ours. We love to share it with our dear guests, many of whom have become long time friends.
Number 1 is the view. No other condo can boast an equal view of the ocean, fish ponds and palm trees. Every room has a view. The H building is considered the prime location in the Terrace. It is a 7 minute walk to the right to the Mauna Lani Hotel with it's restaurants and the white sand beach in front of it. A 7 minute walk to the left takes you by the royal fish ponds to the beautiful white sand horse shoe shaped bay with pristine coral reefs and multitudes of colorful reef fish and turtles. A 2 to 3 minute walk takes you to the pool, jacuzzi, sauna and barbecue area. The top floor location of H303 affords the maximum privacy, security and view. Ground floor units have no privacy or security from people walking by and looking in. Being a corner unit, there is a view, sunlight and ventilation from the side providing a much more open airy feeling. Tastefully decorated with an Asian-tropical flair. 100 year old antique Chinese hutch. We have been upgrading H303 from the day of purchase. New porcelain tile throughout the condo,imported hand made wool rug from Nepal, new kitchen with new Bosch washer and dryer, new Thermador oven-microwave,GE Profile 5 burner glass cook top,granite counters, tile back splash. Since one of Sandy's passions is baking and cooking,the gourmet kitchen is exceptionally well equipped. Bathrooms, new tile on walls and glass blocks to let more light in. Master shower completely replaced with larger designer shower.Paid local artist $1000 to design and etch glass shower door with unique floral design.New flat screen TVs in living room and bedrooms. Wireless internet connection.Our housekeepers, Susan and Chris have been with us for many years and are not only employees, but family.We have had more then one guest try to steal them and take them home to do their housekeeping.They are honest, reliable are immaculate cleaners.
We just recently returned from our stay on the Big Island in H303 in Mauna Lani Terrace. My son and girlfriend and my husband walked in and said immediately how gorgeous the place was and the view. We overlooked the royal fish ponds, ocean, beach and pool. It was incredibly quiet the first week of December. We were steps from the pool and hotel resort next door with beach. We could use all facilities including the resort. We played tennis four times at the beautiful sports complex, and took wonderful long walks through the community and royal ponds and to the small shopping mall. The location of the condos was absolutely perfect, private and quiet. We also took advantage of the BBQs poolside. The only downside was our weather the week we were there; primarily drizzle. So having the wonderful condo with its view allowed us to enjoy the beauty, albeit wet! This unit was on the 3rd floor with no handicap accessibility so I would not recommend for those unable to handle stairs. Working with Dave was easy and he was extremely responsive to all email questions and requests. We would definitely reserve this unit again!
Beautifully furnished and maintained townhouse with drop-dead views, especially at sunset. Loved the location near beaches, shops, and amenities of the resort. Absolutely perfect!
Have just returned from 5 nights with wife and two children in this spectacular property and already longing to be back. Everything as described/reviewed. Best location in Mauna Lani Terraces development and probably of any condo in entire Mauna Lani resort. Unbelievable views of ocean, ancient fish ponds and immaculately maintained grounds. We are frequent VRBO/Homeaway property renters and this was among the best equipped/outfitted unit we have stayed in...can't think of anything that was missing. Nicest welcome basket that I can remember. Extremely convenient to beaches, hotel, golf, spa, etc. Wonderful snorkeling and other water sports. Great facilities for grilling/outdoor eating. Napua restaurant at the Beach Club not to be missed. Only point I would echo from earlier review is that guests with children may want use to either use one of the extremely beautiful, convenient beaches or pool at the adjacent Mauna Lani Bay Resort Hotel, as there are very rigid rules on playing in the development pool. David and Sandy were very responsive and great to work with. An unforgettable property and vacation.
This is the perfect getaway location. It is peaceful and gorgeous with wonderful views of the ocean in all directions, as well as the beautiful fishponds. There is a wonderful beach steps away with fantastic snorkeling, a beach club with cabanas, and a place for a delicious lunch, oceanfront lunch. The condo is very nicely appointed, well-maintained and immaculate. (It is very well-stocked and organized too. If you are a Type A traveler this place is definitely for you.) Really, my only complaint was having to leave. :-( What a wonderful spot!
What a great place, and in great shape. The view was beautiful and peaceful and the proximity to golf was excellent.
We love the calmness of the area but within walking distance of restaurants and beaches. We will definitely be coming back. Thanks for sharing.
We had an amazing week staying at the condo, and I can only say that if the unit is available during your stay then you should book it right now. The unit was well stocked with everything we needed and the pictures are very accurate. Most important for us was that the location and view are outstanding. We will definitely be back to stay at the Mauna Lani Terrace Condos, hopefully in this unit next time. The accommodations exceeded our expectations and the proximity to 3 beaches with swimming and snorkeling was a major plus. We really enjoyed the lunch we had at Napua Restaurant just down the beach after snorkeling there all morning. Thank you Dave for the wonderful welcome basket and prompt communication regarding our visit. We feel blessed that we were lucky enough to secure this unit during our stay.
Historic fishponds, archeological sites. Hawaiian culture.
