About Shannon Low

We are a family of five from Calgary, Alberta, Canada that has vacationed in the Hawaiian Islands for many years. It is our dream come true to own a small piece of paradise and a privilege to share it with others. The property was built in 1993, the year we were married and vacationed on the Big Island. We are thrilled that fate allowed us to acquire this amazing property as we celebrated our 20th Anniversary in 2013.

Shannon Low purchased this House in 2013

Why Shannon Low chose Island of Hawaiʻi

Mr. Rockefeller, who developed the area in the 1960's, said it best: 'A great beach deserves a great hotel'. The Mauna Kea Resort and Beach are hands down the best on the Big Island. Perfect sand, ocean views and manicured tropical landscaping make this location absolutely stunning. You will never want to leave! Renovations to the Resort during 2017 will see Mauna Kea continue it's 50 year legacy of being the best on the Big Island! The property is a perfect mix of spaces to both gather together as a group and to find individual peace and sanctuary. Cool off in your own pool if you don't want to leave! The many outdoor areas (upper deck, lanai, fitness deck and pool deck) provide an array of activities and spaces to customize your Big Island vacation. All of this complemented by impeccable landscaping and fully stocked kitchen and bathrooms! You will dream of returning!

What makes this House unique

Access to the exclusive Mauna Kea Beach, which is limited to the public, and the enjoyment of the many amenities of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel make our home the perfect pairing of private retreat and resort living. The home boasts an excellent balance of modern sophistication and Balinese living to perfectly capture the spirit of the islands. Beautiful wood and marble flooring with custom-cove wood ceilings adding to the luxurious furnishings. The multiple outdoor spaces and expansive views of ocean, Maui, mountain and golf course make this property truly spectacular. Secluded a notable distance from the highway, the property is quiet and peaceful. Driving into your expansive port-cochere and entering the formal yet inviting entryway, you will be welcomed by the warm island breezes and soothed by the always sunny Kohala weather. Sublime.

The kitchen was well stocked with everything we needed. The lap pool was fabulous for some morning exercise and the pool house was a great place for our teenage boys to "hibernate". Boogie boards were available to take to the beach and the access to the Mauna Kea and Hapuna beaches was priceless. We had a truly magnificent time.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

There was plenty of room for everyone and no detail was left out. The kitchen was FULLY stocked, both with ingredients for dinners (condiments, spices, flour) and with cookware, bakeware and dishware for every occasion. The furniture of the home was upscale and comfortable and the views were AMAZING. Wished the beach was walking distance but you can't have it all!

                                                                      Beautiful view!

                                                                      We recommend buying the resort pass as we had access to the best beach on the island!

I am glad to hear that you enjoyed the wonderful view from the lanai and the full access to Mauna Kea Resort and beach!

Everything is in great condition and well stocked. We were able to spread out and feel very comfortable while being close to the resort and the beach. We hope to return someday!

                                                                      The open floor plan, modern kitchen, air conditioning and ridiculously fast wifi make this home extremely comfortable. There is a good ocean view up the coast to Maui (but you can't actually see the sun set on the ocean), and you can watch the golfers on a couple of fairways too. There is a nice telescope for star gazing, and the floorplan and separate ohana make this a good choice for a few couples: privacy when you want it and a great open living room, dining area and kitchen when everyone gets together. We've rented this home twice and the property manager is very responsive should a problem arise. We plan to return again in 2018.

                                                                      Owner's Response:

                                                                      The weather was hot. We really enjoyed the road trips we made, the pool and beach at Mauna Kea resort and the Manta Ray snorkelling.
