Waimea House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms, + convertiable bed, 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8)

Our home is the place for you and your family. Relax in our lovely private home with fabulous sweeping ocean and mountain views. We are located in the famous Mauna Kea Resort on the mauka (mountain) side of the highway. We are situated in a gated cul-du-sac with only 2 homes, providing a quiet environment for your visit. Two sides of the house are surrounded by a green belt of native plants behind which is part of the golf course.

Newly furnished, the home contains 3 BRs, 3 ½ baths. Each bedroom has its own private bath and the master bedroom has an added outdoor shower. Our home comfortably sleeps six people. There are two master suites, both with king beds. The third bedroom (our Ohana suite) features a separate entrance, 2 twin beds (can be made into a king bed), small microwave, sink and refrigerator.

We have a newly re-modeled private solar heated pool and spa facing the ocean to enjoy at your leisure. A great place to enjoy the beautiful sunsets year round.

The kitchen features granite counter tops, quality appliances and ample workspace. All bedrooms contain flat screen TV’s and DVD players. A separate media room contains a 47 inch flat screen TV, home entertainment system with Blu ray/DVD player and Xbox entertainment system . There is free wireless high speed internet. There is a 2 car attached garage.

If you would like to access the resorts and take advantage of the amenities, the resort has a daily access fee. Enjoy the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel- the BEST beaches, golfing and tennis on the island.

About Donna Brucato

We live on the mainland but love to come to our home as often as we can. It has such a quiet wonderful feel.

Donna Brucato purchased this house in 2011

Why Donna Brucato chose Kohala Coast

We have vacationed at Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach for years and love this part of Hawaii best. We have always wanted to own a home here and finally had the opportunity to purchase this beautiful home.

What makes this house unique

This home is very private, with only one other house on the north side. Two sides of the house have a green belt of native plants. Wonderful sweeping views of the ocean and coast line both to the north and south. We grow organic papaya and banana trees bearing fruit most of the year for our clients. There are also a variety of citrus and pineapple in season. Lovely lanai along entire west side of the house with teak lounges and tables and chairs. New gas grill for outdoor meals. Enjoy the sunsets from the great room, lanai or swimming pool and spa.

If you choose the amenity package, you can enjoy the same amenities we do at both hotels--including reduced fees for golf at both Mauna Kea and Hapuna, tennis at the seaside courts at Mauna Kea, beach and pool access at both hotels (including beach towels, lounge chairs and umbrellas).

So Comfortable!

  • 5 of 5

The home was very comfortable. We had everything we needed and it was absolutely beautiful! We loved the view of the ocean, pool, golf course, and fruit trees. It was breathtaking! We also loved that the home was equipped with everything we needed such as linens, dishes, and many of the basics. The beds were super comfortable and the home was very spacious. Our boys loved the pool and we are so glad we had a heated hot tub. We also enjoyed both resorts and the activities there. We did not want to leave because we enjoyed it so much. We would love to come back again someday!

Great Family Vacation Spot

  • 5 of 5

This home is the perfect place to have a large party stay all in one place. We normally stay in hotels, but having planned this vacation last minute we didn't want to stay in a high-priced hotel. It was great all being in one location where we can hang out together in the living room. The convenience of a pool was also great if we wanted to go for a dip. The home was clean and comfortable. Close to many beautiful beaches and parking at the resorts and the home was a bonus. I would definitely recommend to friends.

Wonderful Vacation Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I (two adults, three children ages 15, 11 and 8) stayed at this lovely home for ten days at the end of June. The home is perfectly laid out with wonderful views from the living area, bedrooms and patio. The home including the kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The kids absolutely loved the pool. We opted to pay for privileges at the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach resorts. Everything was seamless with our use of the resorts and it was well worth it to have homeowner access (i.e. parking privileges) to their beaches (two of the best beaches on the island) and golf facilities. Donna, the homeowner, and the rental company were both wonderful to work with. We had an issue with the ac while there, but the management company worked diligently to take care of it and all issues were ultimately resolved to our satisfaction. This is a great house for families in a very private and peaceful location. We truly enjoyed our time here and look forward to returning some day.

Perfect Vacation House

  • 5 of 5

We loved the house, which is well designed, well-maintained, comfortably and nicely decorated and well-supplied with everything we needed: an excellent kitchen, a full laundry room, a big lanai with lots of good seating and a beautiful and fantastic always-WARM pool thanks to excellent solar panels. The rooms are spacious and lovely, including two large bedrooms with king-sized beds and en-suite bathrooms with tubs and stall showers (plus one with an outdoor shower). There is also a large ohana (separate entrance) with twin beds and its own bath and kitchenette. The house has many thoughtful touches that make it an especially nice place to stay: big walk-in closets in all bedrooms; a wonderful bonus sitting room with loungers for watching TV and movies; extra supplies for the kitchen and laundry; roller shades on the windows for the afternoon sun; plenty of pool and beach toys; very high-speed internet. The home has panoramic ocean views that never get old, and a great location near Mauna Kea. Donna did a super job taking care of us and the house, and we definitely want to return soon.
