This beautiful, modern home on the sunny Kohala Coast of the Big Island boasts a private lap pool and adjoining pool/guesthouse. Located behind the gates of the prestigious Mauna Kea Beach Resort, overlooking the North Fairways of the Mauna Kea Golf Course, our home is located on a quiet cul-de-sac and showcases stunning Pacific Ocean, Maui, Kohala Mountain and Mauna Kea Golf Course views from nearly every room.

Beach access and pool service are available with your Club at Mauna membership, as is reduced golf and tennis rates and access to the fitness centres at both Mauna Kea and Hapuna.

Every one of the four bedrooms has it's own flat screen TV; three bedrooms have an adjoining bath and the fourth adjoins to the peaceful courtyard - that's three Master Suites! Three bedrooms are in the main house and the fourth is in the pool/guesthouse. The guest house is located on the private pool deck and is the perfect spot for in-laws, nannies, older teenagers, young adult children or the fourth couple in the group.

Mauna Kea has undergone extensive renovations in 2016 which will continue in to 2017, continuing the timeless tradition of excellence that we've all come to expect!

The crescent shaped, natural sands of the Mauna Kea Beach is consistently ranked one of the best on the island and in the world. Public access to the beach is limited to 30 cars and the spots fill up by 8 AM daily!

The Kohala Coast enjoys some of the best weather in the world with average temperature in the 80's and less than 8 inches of rainfall annually. All only 30 minutes north of the Kona Airport.

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 Kamuela

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.

Stunning views, beautifully appointed home, well maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Layout of home was so comfortable, there were so many nice places to sit, relax and enjoy the ocean views. 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.

Beautiful view!

  • 5 of 5

The house is spacious and lovely

Our favourite spot was the side balcony with a beautiful view of the ocean

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

Wonderful vacation

  • 5 of 5

Our family had the best time staying here. Beautiful home with a great view of the ocean and plenty of room for our group of 8. 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!

Comfortable, relaxing modern home

  • 5 of 5

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.

Awesome trip. House was amazing. We had lots of room and the proximity to the resorts was great.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Family gathering on Big Island

  • 5 of 5

We rented the house for my inlaws who were part of a larger group of family and friends. The 7 house guests included teens and grandparents - everyone had their own space and privacy, but the spacious living/dining area and family room areas were great for large gatherings. The house is well appointed and maintained and very convenient for resort and beach access. The pool and ping pong table are nice diversions. I would highly recommend the home for large families wanting more space and a place to hang out. And it's nice to have a kitchen for snacks and an alternative to eating at expensive hotel restaurants.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for the wonderful review! It is lovely to have guests confirm that the property suits the needs of large groups to both gather together and have space for themselves! It is nice to have the option of a kitchen when you want to use it! Aloha!
