The villa door swings open. You step inside. Drop your bags. Feel the warm aloha of the Big Island begin to revive your senses and rejuvenate your spirit.

Welcome to Villa #32 at the world-class Mauna Kea resort. Life doesn’t get any better than this. We call it paradise. And, we believe you’ll agree.

Two master suites, spacious and comfy. One appointed with a luxurious king-size bed, and the other with two doubles. Both have a walk-out lanai. The master baths boast their own soaking tubs surrounded by private, lush outdoor gardens. Cushy comfort, from the linens to the bath towels, our villa sleeps 6 with 2 bedrooms and 2.5 baths.

A big, open floor plan allows for terrific gathering, entertaining and relaxing, complete with a gourmet kitchen, wet bar and outdoor grilling. From your private lanai, the views are seriously spectacular, overlooking the ocean and the 2nd hole of the world-famous Mauna Kea golf course.

Take an early morning dip in the pool with your coffee, dine al fresco seaside, or raise a toast to an awe-inspiring sunset at the end of your day – outdoor living on your lanai, is as good as it gets.

And, if you so desire, a call to our private concierge service will have your pantry filled with snacks and your bar and refrigerator fully loaded. Have all the comforts of home, from the moment you arrive. You can grocery shop at home. Why spend your vacation time doing it?

When you’re ready to explore the island, you’ll find the beach, golf, tennis, workout facilities/spa, shopping, and the finest dining the island has to offer, all just steps or minutes away from your front door. If you must work, you couldn’t find a better “office” away from home, and we’ll keep you up to speed with the fastest wifi internet access, along with printing and faxing capabilities. And for entertainment, you’ll enjoy our large flatscreen TV and sound system with iPod docking station. All the lavish comfort and amenities you’d expect from a luxurious, exclusive vacation retreat.

Why the Owner Chose Mauna Kea? Our family is the original owner of Villa #32. We've been fortunate to return year after year, to one of the most beautiful places in the world. We hope you, too, will be able to do the same.

Spectacular Ocean View Villa at Mauna Kea Beach Resort
average rating of 5.0 based on 8 reviews

Exceeded our expectations

  • 5 of 5

An ideal location within 5 minutes walking distance to the MK Beach Resort where one can enjoy golf, standup paddleboarding, snorkeling, or just plain sunbathing. With 4 people traveling together, we find that a residence provides more room, privacy, and the freedom to cook or not. There was a full, well-stocked (appliances, tableware, etc.) and roomy kitchen and a large living area with a gorgeous view. And a large outside lanai and pool to enjoy the spectacular view and sunset cocktails. The air conditioning was always a welcome treat after a long day in the sun. We will be back!!

Beautiful place with a beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful place with a gorgeous view and easy access to the resort and the nicest beach on the island. We had a wonderful time making fresh fish dinners and eating outside by the pool. The owner was receptive to any questions we had about the house and we took advantage of his contact, Penny, to help arrange a private boat ride to swim with dolphins only 5-10 minutes away from the resort. Would love to go back again someday!

A Perfect Vacation Destination!

  • 5 of 5

Over the years, my husband and I have vacationed at Mauna Kea numerous times and have always looked forward to our next visit. This time, our two daughters were joining us so we decided to try staying in a villa to take advantage of our rare family time without having to share all of it with other hotel guests. We were so delighted with Villa 32 that we may never stay in the main hotel again! The unit was beautiful, spacious and exactly as described. We loved the option of cooking at the villa when we didn't feel like going out and the kitchen was fully equipped with everything we needed. It's hard to beat fresh Hawaiian pineapple for breakfast on the lanai while looking at that beautiful view! The 5 minute walk to the beach was another huge plus and we found ourselves making it several times a day - not only during the day, but each night we took the well-lit path to the beach to see the giant Mantas swim under the lights. Five stars is as high as the ratings go, but I'd definitely give it six! Can't wait to go back!

This villa is spacious, beautiful, well appointed and private. The pool and pool deck are spacious with incredible ocean and mountain views, and comfortable furniture. We could actually see whales breaching from the pool deck with binoculars (provided). The lush grounds are gorgeous overlooking golf course. Very large open concept living and dining area, nice kitchen with island and adjoining laundry, two large bedrooms on opposite ends of villa with HUGE adjoining bathrooms and powder room off living area. All furniture and beds very comfortable. Each bedroom has covered lanai that leads to pool and pool deck. Outdoor grill. You have full use of Mauna Kea Resort, including huge pool, beaches with plenty of lounge chairs and umbrellas. Towels and lounge covers provided. Nice beachside restaurant for lunch and a tiki bar. Very good restaurant for dinner. Luaus and special events available. 5 minutes away in the quaint little town of Kawaihae Harbor are fishing charters, sunset whale cruises and day cruises with snorkeling, dolphin and whale watching with Endless Summer Private Charters.

All that said, the most important perk of this stay is your contact person for the villa and charters, Penny Ritter. She is a local and knows all the cool places to go and will make your reservations. She also stocked the villa with our grocery and wine requests for a nominal fee, all waiting when we arrived. Her knowledge of the area, kindness and concern for your stay to be perfect, is unmatched by anything we've ever experienced. We are going back next year. Can't wait!

Spectacular is an understatement

  • 5 of 5

The pictures do not do it justice, it truly is paradise found. We spent two fantastic weeks here over this past holiday season and hated to leave. Every night the sunsets competed for which was the most magnificent. The full service kitchen and outdoor grill were perfect. The layout of the Villa with two master suites worked even for our three grown children to easily share the 2 double bed master. Our master was magnificent with a wall of glass and a corner seamless window that takes your breath away. The huge U shaped couch enabled all five of us to sprawl out in comfort at the end of the day. The free wireless enabled our son to work from Hawaii as if he was at his Chicago office. Every room had exquisite mountain or ocean views. The comfortable lounge chairs on the private and expansive lanai were heavenly. The small lanai pool was pretty but a little too cold for use this time of year. The resort facilities were first class with full service beach help with umbrellas, cabanas and chairs at the Mauna Kea's beautiful beach. The full service bar and restaurant beach side was enjoyable. Manta Restaurant was the best on property, maybe on island. We could walk to the beach or valet park the car at the front door to the hotel without charge which was beneficial. The best advice the owner gave me when booking the Villa was to contact Penny Vesel the owner of GRASS SKIRT CONCIERGE a private concierge service on the Big Island. Penny was AMAZING and took the stress out of pre-trip planning. She interviewed me ahead of our trip and discussed what activities our family enjoyed and booked everything for us from; where to eat Merrimen's, Seafood Bar and Manta favorites, dive (Kohala Divers), private catamaran MAKANI KAI II out of Kawaihae Harbor complete w/grilled dinner - wild dolphin pod swim and humpback whale sightings, helicopter tour, golf rounds and club rental, Hawi - Big Island Zipline, Mariott Luau, and in-villa massages. She even did grocery shopping ahead of our arrival from my list which was priceless. This truly was the best trip ever! Aloha!!
