This home and location are amazing! The views are spectacular and the home is perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Before we even arrived, the owners were so helpful in communicating everything we needed to know to have a memorable vacation. Their home is so comfortable and well appointed. The beautiful lanai, with comfy furniture and the pool and hot tub are so inviting. We used the outdoor grill for cooking, the tv’s and sound system are all modern and every room has a television. The kitchen is fit for a chef! Great appliances, everything was new and easy to use! I can’t say enough about our experience here, having the use of the Mauna Lea club, then coming back to relax at your own villa is the perfect way to see The Big Island! We hiked, played golf, went to the ocean, the pool, dined out, dined in, all within a mile! Mahalo Karen!

Superb property, exceptionally well maintained and very family friendly

  • 5 of 5

Four adults and three kids, six, four and ten months. The adults loved the spaciousness, the great lanai and the proximity to the gym/pool club. The girls spend hours in the pool and the baby loved to crawl on the grass.

Although we had the resort guest privilege membership, we made very little use of it, the House was so comfortable !

Strongly recommend the Mauna Kea luau, well worth the money, the kids loved it

Super place!

  • 5 of 5

What a great place in a super location. My family (2 kids) and I loved the house. It was advertised, and the owner was great to work with. The house had a great pool and hot tub. The kitchen was fully fitted and provided a great option if you wanted to stay in. Access to the Mauna Kea was a must, with a great beach and activities for the kids. Highly recommend.

Beautiful house and perfect location

  • 5 of 5

Our family absolutely loved our stay at your beautiful house! The ocean views and sunsets were spectacular. We felt right at home. The location was perfect...just a 5 minute drive to Mauna Kea, where we enjoyed the beach everyday. Our favorite thing was coming back late afternoon to take a dip in the pool and enjoy the sunset along with a BBQ. We appreciated how the house had everything we needed from a fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms to just an overall comfortable feeling to the house. We keep looking at our pictures pretending we are still there :) We can't wait to come back next summer!!!!

Beautiful, Relaxing, Spectacular views

  • 5 of 5

Karen & ( Steve ) are just the nicest people to work with and just wanted to say this was a wonderful trip for me and my daughter and myfamily. All the memories we created while staying at their home will be treasured for a lifetime.

Exceptionally stocked kitchen, with everything you'd ever need to prepare a gourmet meal, homemade waffles or grill on the outdoor grill.

Quiet meals poolside watching the sunsets were some of my favorite memories.

I highly recommend Karen and Steve's home and just wish to extend my sincere thanks for all the very good communication as we made the reservation until Kerrie got me all checked in.

Kerrie ( your realtor) was wonderful also, and please extend her my sincere thanks for being very efficient and very welcoming.

I look forward to staying at your home again, I left part of my heart there,

Mahalo Nui Loa Karen & Steve 🌴�❤️

Incredibly beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight enjoyed a perfect time at this lovely home. it is so well appointed - I cannot think of anything it lacks. The view is gorgeous! The proximity to the beach at Mauna Kea and Hapuna is ideal. This was by far the best Hawaii vacation- we cannot wait to come back!

About Karen & Steve Kulin

We live in Alaska and love outdoor activities from snow skiing to snorkeling, road biking and mountain biking and have recently taken up golf now that we have a house on a golf course. We've added another fun activity to our list when we discovered the joy of paddle boarding. Mauna Kea is a perfect place to enjoy this activity while watching for spinner dolphins, turtles, whales and manta ray.

Karen & Steve Kulin purchased this villa in 2012

Why Karen & Steve Kulin chose Kamuela

After numerous trips to Hawaii over the past 25 years, we fell in love with the Big Island and in 2012 decided to purchase a vacation home here. The energy level and friendly people made us want to come back to the Big Island time and time again and when we found Waiulaula, we knew we had also found our 'home away from home.'

What makes this villa unique

The floor plan of our gorgeous spacious villa is perfectly placed with access to the best beaches on the island. Walk to Mauna Kea or Hapuna Beach. Enjoy access (with a fee) to the Mauna Kea Hotel or the Hapuna Prince (soon to be a Westin) with the amenities package available to our clients through our resort membership. You will be treated as if you are a guest at the hotel. With our perfect location, enjoy what is one of the top ocean views in Waiulaula, as well as one of the largest back yards.
