Great condo for larger family

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. There were seven of us staying at the condo, and enough room for all of us to enjoy the space. Great kitchen, well stocked with any items we needed. Also a nice lanai with a BBQ. We made use of the pool and also could walk to the Mauna Lani Beach which was good for snorkelling. The garage has a good supply of equipment for the beach and activities, and condo had plenty of towels for all of us. Great place!

Wonderful place for a relaxing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is very spacious with 3 bedrooms and 3 bathrooms. The kitchen is very well equipped and we enjoyed the BBQ area on the lanai. This place is very guest-friendly with beach equipment, beach towels, and sundry items that you might need. We liked the convenience of the fitness room and the pool/spa close by this unit. The whole complex is quiet with a lot of privacy. The nearby path to the beach provided a great historical walk. The Beach Club and the adjacent fishponds are very nice. We highly recommend The Gathering Place!

Perfect condo for three couples

  • 5 of 5

This is our second time staying in this unit. Love the location (can walk to the shops, hotel, and beach club) plus it is very quiet. Enjoy sitting on the lanai. Upstairs landing is perfect for painting watercolors. Well equipped kitchen and garage with items for the beach. Love all the ceiling fans so that one doesn't need a/c. The fan on the lanai is a nice touch. Two separate sitting areas downstairs work well for this size group. Rented a smaller condo last year with our son and family in the Golf Villas and the area was much more crowded and you had to drive everywhere. Also it had way fewer windows. This condo is filled with light with lovely views toward the pool.

I'd pick The Gathering Place again... in a heartbeat!

  • 5 of 5

This beautiful home was indeed our gathering place, as friends and family gathered to celebrate a wedding. Although the wedding couple stayed at the Orchid, 7 of us stayed here very comfortably. Four different flights and arrival times, but the owners were very helpful in that regard, with both the detailed info that is provided, and being especially accommodating -- above and beyond. My younger son really appreciated their graciousness!

The home is beautiful inside and the landscaping and setting is nothing but lovely and serene. We loved the close location to the peaceful pool and hot spa, having coffee in the mornings on the shady patio (there's even a ceiling fan), lots of room to spread out comfortably, the well-equipped kitchen & outdoor grill, comfortable patio furniture, beach towels,fans in every room!, the 'goodwill' closet of items that might be needed but we neglected to bring (bug spray, sunscreen...even a sun hat or two), the bikes, Beach Club access, and the great selection of beachy items in the garage. Thank you for providing us with those extras that really went a long way in adding to our enjoyment of the home and the beautiful beaches around Mauna Lani and beyond! We loved the Beach Club during the day, and on our first evening all together we also had a beautiful pre-wedding dinner there on the outdoor dining area. Torches, stars, the sound of waves, friendly staff, happy family and friends... even the restaurant cat was polite. We couldn't eat there every night, but the lanai at the townhome was just as welcoming, naturally elegant, and comfortable. We had a small reception here after the wedding, just a dozen or so of us, and the owners and George were so kind and helpful in letting us make that a beautiful, relaxed, and very special evening. I will treasure these memories always! I just can't say enough about the beauty of the grounds and the care that is obviously given. Even the birds and mongoose were charming and fun to watch.

The complex is smaller than many of the surrounding condo and townhome complexes, and we liked this feature as it was very quiet and peaceful most of the time. The entrance to the natural preserve is just outside the gate, and from there it is a 10 minute walk to the ocean and more paths-- to the fish ponds, hotels, more beaches, etc. The shops are close to, within easy walking/running or biking distance. We enjoyed shopping there and took in a hula show too.

Yes, I'd pick the Gathering Place again!

We absolutely loved our time at this townhouse. As the previous visitors stated-it is superb for a family with kids and or teenagers. This is what we loved:


1) Ample living/sleeping space. Incredibly quiet end unit

2) Plenty of beach toys, scuba gear, ect in garage

3) Managers quick to respond

4) Spices, cooking utensils, and all basic equipment plus outside propane grill

5) Plenty of parking (we had 2 vehicles and parking was not an issue)

6) The grounds were impeccable

7) Incredibly Safe and Secure

8) Tons of towels ect but the washer is a small front loader so do not over stuff it. We learned the hard way.


THE BEST POOL EVER! Hot tub, waterfall, lava style bottom and the perfect temperature. It was incredibly quiet and rarely used by others- It felt like our own oasis.


Beach access card for beach. Slightly rocky farther out so be sure to bring scuba shoes if you are going to scuba dive. Plenty of chairs and cabanas free of charge-first come basis. Restaurant on location.


Mauna Lanai is a great community. Roads are wide enough to safely walk, run, or bike. The grocery store, coffee shop, ect is less than 5 minutes away in a car. It is a 10 minute drive to Hapuna Beach & Beach 69. $5 to park at Hapuna Beach. Be sure to bring the umbrella from the garage. We drove to the Hapuna Prince Hotel a few times. Say you are dining at the restaurant. Guest Parking is south of the lobby. Happy Hour food is reasonable. Pool overlooks their beach. Truly stunning view. We went into Kona for groceries (Safeway, Walmart, and Cosco all are close) then supplemented with the Mauna Lanai grocery store. We headed north to the Seafood Grill on the last day. Local Seafood spot which was really good. Local fare and not pretentious. Check out the farmers markets on wed & sat at Wimeae- great place to buy coffee and homemade macadamia nut items.

This was absolute paradise. We would come back in a heart beat and felt incredibly lucky to stumble upon this location and townhouse. We would highly recommend this place. Also if you want a great local photographer for outdoor family photos check out James Rubio Photography. He was incredible!! Aloha

Great place for kids and families

  • 5 of 5

This townhouse condo has everything we could possibly need from pool toys and inflatables, to boardgames, water shoes, coolers, beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel equipment, kids books etc. We were very impressed and greatly appreciative of the stuff they had for the kids to play with. It saved a lot of packing. There were spices in the kitchen and some toiletry products as well. The condo was a few steps from the pool, in which my kids loved. It was a little cool but there was also a hot tub to warm up in. The walking path to the beach was a little far for my kids 6 & 8. We did it once and drove after that. The beach club was small but had everything we needed to grab a beach chair and enjoy the sand and snorkelling. The grocery store was very convenient as well as restaurants and shopping. The kids also enjoyed the nice grassy area outside our lanai where they could run and play. We also enjoyed the BBQ. We would love to come back. A great rental property where we were taken care of by Jane and her crew. Thanks
