Kamuela Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 bedroom, 3 bath with Ocean Views minutes to two resort beaches

When you stay with us at our 3 Bedroom/3 Bathroom condo, everyone in your group gets free, unlimited access to the luxury Mauna Kea and Hapuna Resorts on the shores of the Big Island. Swim, surf or sunbathe on the safest, most beautiful private resort beaches in Hawaii. After you park in the secured lot right next to the beach, you'll be given plush hotel beach towels, beach umbrellas, chaises lounges and tables to use FREE. Or use the vast hotel pools and well-appointed gyms as my honored guest. You'll also have access to meticulously maintained tennis courts and two championship golf courses at a discount. Leave your wallet behind. We’ll provide a charge card and you can settle up with the hotel when you leave!

Your home away from home is a luxuriously-appointed, 3-Bedroom, Big Island condo. which sleeps 8 comfortably: We have:

1. A Master Bedroom with a huge California King

2. A Second Master Bedroom with a huge California King

3. A Third Bedroom with two full size beds.

As the proud owner of my home, you always deal with me personally, not a property manager!

Your Big Island dream awaits at our 3-bedroom, 3-bath vacation rental within the gates of the exclusive Wai'ula'ula compound at the Mauna Kea Resort.

Before you do anything else on your Big Island vacation, step out onto our condo’s open-air lanai terrace, where views of the rolling fairways and the Pacific Ocean stretch out ahead of you, touching Maui’s shores in the distance. Welcome to Hawaii!

About Wai’ula’ula & Mauna Kea

Our 2,100 square foot second-floor Mauna Kea vacation rental is located near the end of a private lane at Wai’ula’ula. So at night, instead of traffic noise and headlights, you’ll hear the surf and see the hours-long sunsets, giving way to a sky full of stars.

Prefer to work out on state-of-the-art fitness equipment and then plunge into an infinity pool or hot tub? Come on over. It’s only a 5-minute walk to the amenity center from our Mauna Kea vacation rental. Use the grill and tables there for a family luau!

About Our Big Island Condo Rental

Wai'ula'ula homes at Mauna Kea Resort were crafted from the finest building materials and feature top-of-the-line appliances. For our part, we’ve spared no expense in lovingly furnishing our home with tasteful, comfortable furniture and collector’s art on the walls.

Enjoy two spacious master suites with extra comfortable king-size beds, made up with tempurpedic-style mattresses, silky-soft, 600-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The 3rd bedroom is furnished with two comfy double beds. Each bedroom has its own wide-screen TV with almost as many cable channels as grains of sand on the Mauna Kea Beach!

Our Great Room is truly “great”! Recessed lighting, coffered ceilings, and a roomy dining area – featuring a hand-made glass top, koa wood dining table -- are just the beginning. Follow a day of sightseeing or beach-going with a quiet evening at home. Choose from the many books in our library ad popular games from our collection. For your soundtrack, plug your Apple device into the Surround Sound speakers. Or just plop down on the comfy sectional and watch the massive 50” flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player and about a bazillion cable channels!

The well-appointed Kitchen at our Big Island condo – with its cherry wood cabinets and granite countertop island – is a great place for creating casual meals or more formal dinners. (As formal as the Big Island gets, anyway!)

If this spectacular Mauna Kea vacation rental feels like a home-away-from home, that’s because it’s our family’s home-away-from home, too! We’ve made countless memories here. And as they say on the Big Island, “Memories, like our sunsets, last forever.”

STAY CONNECTED. We’re working vacationers, too! That’s why we provide you with FREE wireless or wired high-speed Internet. There’s even a spacious desk and comfortable chair in one of the master bedrooms – if you can take your eyes off the ocean right out the window!

About Richard Lasser, Owner

Most of the past 21 years we've frozen our toes off in Seattle. So you can imagine how excited we were to finally make our dream come true and purchase this lovely second home for us, our kids and grandkids. But we're working folk, so we can't get down to the Big Island as much as we'd like. So, we hope you enjoy it when we can't be there. This is not just a rental for us. It truly is our second home, and that's how we've designed and furnished it, right down to the artwork on the walls and the 600-thread count, Egyptian cotton sheets. So we know you'll be comfortable, happy and pleased with all the design choices we've made. Enjoy your time in our home away from home. Wish we were there!

Richard Lasser, Owner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Lasser, Owner chose Hawaii

We're in the most exclusive gated compound on the Mauna Kea property. Instead of hordes of tourists and cars crowding wide streets, you relax amid the lush vegetation, serenaded by colorful songbirds. From our end of the compound, traffic dies to practically zero, since we are the next to last property. Your unobstructed view of the Pacific at sunset is matchless.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy the safest and quietest part of the Waiulaula compound. Live in a home furnished with designer furniture and original, vintage art. Enjoy unique ocean and mountain views (plus Haleakala on Maui on a clear day!

We will be back!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from 8 day family vacation with our children and grandchildren. This was our second time staying at the property. The views are fabulous, the grounds are immaculate and well landscaped and the house is extremely comfortable and well stocked. Our family visited Mauna Kea or Hapuna beach hotels every day. Loved having access. We will be back.

Excellent Stay - Perfect

  • 5 of 5

Our large family just got back from 10 days at this condo. It was perfect. It was spacious, comfortable beds and couch, the lanai was an awesome place to spend each morning and night, and the kitchen was well stocked for the many meals/BBQs we had. Our kids (10, 7, 4) all loved the infinity pool, which was never too busy even over spring break. And we used the access to Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach hotels almost daily, switching between the two for their great beaches.

All in all it was easy check in / out, and we would absolutely recommend this to our closest friends and family. It is easy to see why there are so many 5-star reviews. Thanks Richard - we can only hope to be back some day!!
