Pictures don't do the house justice. Better then advertised. 6 adults and 2 kids under age 6. Plenty of room. The house is big and spread out. Awesome back yard with pool/golf course/ ocean views. Private beach is only a 5 minute walk with a great beach for families and snorkeling. Milo, the house manager is close and helpful but we didn't see or talk to him until checkout since the house was perfect and we had no issues. House has AC which is nice to have at night. Would recommend for adults or families with kids. Best vacation of our life.
We highly recommend the Candini property for families or adults. First of all, the pictures on the website do not do justice to this gorgeous home and setting. It is lovely. We all agreed that the outdoor lanai that seamlessly transitions into the dining and living area is a highlight of the home. Children and adults spent hours in the pool and hot tub while others simply enjoyed taking in the view of golfers as they passed by or watching the sunset over the ocean. The beach is about a 5 min walk from the house so snorkeling; swimming and sand castle building are all right there. There is something for everyone.
We recently vacationed for 2 1/2 weeks at the Candini home in which the first week was spent with our adult children and 2 grandchildren (10 people) and the second week was spent with adult friends (8). We used all 4 bedrooms (which included private baths) and the office with a trundle bed and portable crib. The layout of the home allowed everyone to have private space while still being able to enjoy family or friend time in the main area of the home. We cooked most of our meals and found the kitchen well appointed with high-end appliances and fixtures.
It was extremely helpful to have Milo Candini living a few minutes from the property. He answered all of our questions and was willing to come to the house immediately if we had any problems. He was amazing!
Thank you to the Candini family for helping make our vacation a delight. We hope to return.
We recently completed our 3-week vacation at the Candini residence at Mauna Lani. By we, I mean two families of three each. Two couples and two 15 year old boys.
The property was excellent on all counts. The six of us had an ideal amount of personal space along with our time together. The highlight is, of course, the fabulous open air lanai, which comprises a deep water pool, hot tub, waterfall, BBQ and poolside refrigeration. The view beyond is stunning, day and night. It comprises the 17th hole of Mauna Lani’s South Course and, beyond, the Pacific ocean.
There are four bedrooms, each with private bath, plus an office with a trundle bed, which we also used occasionally. The kitchen is well-equipped. Meals were, for the most part, enjoyed together at the dining table or around the kitchen island. There are multiple TVs, a great sound system and wireless internet plus zoned AC.
We partook of many activities within an hour’s drive or less. Snorkeling, nighttime manta ray dives, ATV tours, zip-lining, blue marlin fishing and lots of golf. We grilled at home; but, also managed our share of dining out and happy hours. Not sure, there is much else, we could have done. Having Milo Candini, the owner’s son, nearby proved a great resource.
We are regular VRBO users and this is one of the best properties we’ve found. Highly recommended.”
I would HIGHLY recommend this property to a number of people! This beautiful home is only for those that expect and demand the best things in life and want to spoil themselves and their family. As good as the listed photos are in the VRBO Listing, actually being there is much more inviting. The house exhibits the best design, taste and craftsmanship that cannot be matched. Being able to be in the open air and immersed in the beautiful golf course that the house sits along is stunning. Watching the sun sink over the Mauna Lani South Course is breathtaking. This home is truly one of a kind and one that you will not want to leave after your stay.
The benefit and luxury of each guest room having their own bathroom is priceless. The hard decision will be who gets the Master Bedroom that features a bed like no other, outdoor tub & shower (for fun), a spa like master bathroom and view that will keep you in bed reading your favorite book all day.
The hard part is trying to decide what our favorite thing in the house is; to help answer that, it might not be the actual 5000 SF in the home, but, the Lanai, or the two private pools/waterfalls, or the swim up bar or the custom BBQ area.
If you are thinking about staying in the Mauna Lani, Kohala Coast, Big Island, Hawaii and have not inquired about this Beautiful Estate Home - you are missing out.
This was truly a magical experience that you will always treasure.
Perfect vacation for a our family! We had the time of our lives. The whole experience was outstanding. We have taken our family to a number of fine places and enjoyed each but this is the only one we all voted that we would return.The house, pool and outside amenities were very enjoyable for party or rest. You can't go wrong with this choice. The photos did not show the place as nice as it actually was.
Thank you so much to the owners! I had a ton of questions and they had been just an email away!!
Can't wait till next year!!! Don't tell the family...it's already booked! :-)
