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!

Paradise

  • 5 of 5

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:

Townhouse-

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.

Pool-

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-

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.

Community-

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

Felt Like Home

  • 4 of 5

What a beautiful, bright, spacious condo! There was plenty of sleeping room for 6 adults and one toddler, plus we managed to fit 9 of us on the lanai for our fun-filled dinners every evening. The view and quiet atmosphere from the lanai off the master bedroom was wonderful. We spent a great deal of time on the main floor lanai and enjoyed how peaceful it always was. We have been to three of Hawaii's islands a few times now and this is our favourite resort and condo. The Palm Villas is so nice and quiet and the pool is amazing - such beautiful surroundings, warm water and always very quiet.

The entire Mauna Lani resort is a welcoming oasis in the middle of the lava with marvelous walking paths and bike lanes. We looked forward to our walks through the fishponds and around the resort every day.

We would like to be able to keep this condo and the Palm Villas our own little secret, however, according to how quickly it books up, the secret is obviously out! For those of you thinking of visiting for the first time - you are in for a real treat!!

The Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

When you go away, it is always nice to feel like you have the comforts of home. This condo was the perfect size and accommodation for our party (2 grandparents, 3 adults and 2 kids). It was beautifully decorated with comfortable furniture/beds, and a very well stocked kitchen. Everything you needed/wanted was within walking distance and if you ventured out, the condo was such a welcome return. Hawaii is such a wonderful island and this condo made our vacation absolutely perfect. Thank you.

A Piece of Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

No better place to call home during our family holiday with 5 adults and 2 kids (5 & 7 year olds). The condo was fresh, very clean, spacious, well stocked, comfortable and nicely decorated. We all agreed it was even better than the pictures showed. The pool, hot tub and exercise facility are just steps out the back patio doors and often we were the only ones using them. It's very quiet and private with a nice grassed area off the lower lanai for the kids to run. The upper lanai off the master bedroom was a beautiful shady place to relax overlooking the pool and garden area. The owner has thought of everything we could possibly have needed including a bookcase filled with assorted kids books, fiction, and books with everything you want to know about Hawaii. Also provided is info on tours and excursions around the island. We appreciated the added bonus of bicycles, snorkeling gear, water shoes (need these if walking further out in the water) , pool noodles, boogie boards & floaties, beach umbrellas, coolers, beach bags - everything we needed to enjoy the beautiful private beach which would be at least a 20 min. walk with the kids (5 min by car).

We chose this location on the island for the accessibility to basic needs, (Mauna Lani shops -10 min walk) great beaches, & a quieter more relaxing pace. The Mauna Lani shops have a great little grocery store with a bakery, fresh meat/seafood, huge deli. Other shops include a coffee shop, smoothie bar, equipment rental, art, clothing, restaurants and several times during the week have free hula/firedance shows as well as hula dance, palm weaving and ukelele lessons. Nothing is cheap in Hawaii so it's a pleasant surprise when families can attend something free. The Kings and Queens Shops -a bigger shopping complex is only a 5-10 min. drive if you need more- or a 30min drive to Kona. The condo is well managed and any questions or issues got a quick response. We highly recommend this property!
