About Jennifer Feaver

We are a family of 4 who fell in love with the Big Island one our first visit in 2006. Although we had visited the other islands many times, we found the numerous activities available on Big Island to be superior to anything we had experienced. The Mauna Lani is a fabulous resort that offers tennis, hiking, snorncrowded luxury.

Jennifer Feaver purchased this villa in 2006

Third Stay, Excellent property, Caring owner

  • 5 of 5

We've been enjoying the Mauna Lani property for 16 years. Stayed at the Hotel, Mauna Lani Point condos and most recently at The Villages. For our family ( 2 of us plus son's family of 4), this luxurious home is by far the best. The home is like new with modern fixtures, appliances and appointments. The owners respond like no other we've known in our 40 years of rental, many with VRBO. We extensively use the association facilities( pool, exercise room), nearby shopping and dining, and private beach where we snorkle, board and scuba dive. Already booked Fall return.

Wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

We can't say enough about our stay in this house at Mauna Lani Villages. The pictures absolutely do not do justice to how spacious and beautifully decorated this house is. We were a party of 5 - my husband and I, our 13 year old son and 11 year old daughter and my aunt. The duel masters and bedroom with two full size beds were perfect for our group.

Gourmet kitchen and plenty of seating for everyone. We especially enjoyed breakfast out on the lanai taking in the tropical breeze. Bathrooms are all spa like and everyone had privacy.

The location can't be beat - the private beach club was a plus and 5 minutes up the road is Hapuna Beach where the kids had a fantastic time boogie boarding. It was so great that the rental provided plenty of beach chairs, beach towels and boogie boards. Super close to the grocery store at the Mauna Lani shops so easy to shop for supplies. The kitchen was well stocked.

We even enjoyed a movie night in after a busy day of snorkeling at Captain

Cook's Monument with the HD TV.

Pool was never crowded and close enough to walk.

We can't wait until we get to return.

Perfect family condo.

  • 5 of 5

I will start by saying that the Villages is a quiet, well kept property whose layout means that your lanai isn't directly beside or overlooking any neighbours giving you great privacy. It is conveniently located a short walk away from the Shops for a few groceries, ice cream, or a show. The grocery store was reasonably priced, considering it's location, and was a great place to restock sunscreen, potato chips or pick up fresh poke or pre-marinated meat for grilling. The condo is very well appointed with beautiful high-end finishes. There is also a lot of space. We were a family of 6 (2 grandparents, 2 parents and 2 teens) and there was more than enough room. It was so nice for each bedroom to have its own bathroom as well (no sharing with the teenage boys). It was a quiet place for sleeping. The layout, as well as solid wood doors, made it easy for the early risers not to wake the later sleepers. The beds were also really comfortable. We spent almost all of our time, while at the condo, outside on the large lanai. We cooked, ate, read and played cards with the lovely view of the palm trees of the Villages and the mountains in the distance We loved that we could open the wall of windows and did not see any bugs coming in (a few naughty birds had to be shooed away though). The entire place was stocked with anything we needed from shampoo to laundry soap, to kitchen implements. There were beach chairs, snorkel equipment and some beach toys as well. We did discover that the umbrella was broken so we bought a new one from Costco and left it behind. We spent our days at 2 beaches. The beach club beach is great for snorkelling and those with small children as the water is very calm. It is also nice to be able to use the beach club loungers and not carry chairs to the beach. We also frequented Hapuna Beach. It was the favourite for our teens as the boogie boarding is outstanding. Both beaches are close by (less than 5 minutes, and 10 minutes). We spent 8 nights here and were sorry to leave Mauna Lani and this condo and definitely recommend it to others.

Excellent value on the Big island

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been on the Big Island more than a dozen times for business typically staying at the Fairmont Princess. We love the Big Island with all it has to offer! So For this Thanksgiving we decided to take our two sons, 24 and 21 to the island for the first time. We thought with our full family it would be more appropriate to find a unit that could accommodate the four of us rather than stay at a hotel. The property at the Mauna Lani Villages was the perfect answer. There was plenty of space with three bedrooms, all the kitchen amenities you could ask for and very high quality appliances and finishes. The beds were very comfortable ( something we have found to be an issue with other VRBOs) and everything in excellent working order. The property is in a very central location near shopping and a grocery store and is very well maintained. Are only complaint is that the property is relatively far from the water and beach and necessitates a drive in the car unless you are willing to walk a little over a mile. This concern, however, is far outweighed by the great value this unit offers. The owner was very easy to deal with and was extremely punctual in her communication. This is probably the best VRBO we have experienced!

Missing Mauna Lani and the Big Island

  • 5 of 5

I can't say enough wonderful things about unit 628, Mauna Lani Villages, and the Big Island.

We arrived quite late (after 10 pm). The house was lit up and welcoming. The kids (2 18-year-olds and a 16-year-old) immediately settled into their rooms (which they all loved. Our 16 y.o. son might still be in the lower-level master suite). The rooms couldn't have accommodated our group any better--there was always enough space to escape if need be.

The upper level with its open doorways, comfortable furniture (enough for all 5 of us to spread out and watch TV), and beautiful kitchen, was perfect. The kitchen is very well-appointed--there was absolutely nothing we needed that wasn't provided. And the master suite was lovely. The bed was a tad soft for us, but beds are so subjective, and the linens were high end.

The location could not have been better. My husband and I went for a long walk every morning (such a nice way to start the day. Especially with our 6 hour time difference!) and then stopped by the Shops at Mauna Lani for an iced coffee. The convenience of the location was appreciated. We also used the Activity Center, and although you can see it from the driveway (it seems like there should be a short cut), the short walk was a nice warmup for our workouts.

The Mauna Lani Beach Club at Makaiwa Bay is such a treat. Drive down early in the morning or after 2 pm and parking is never a problem. The restaurant is so convenient for meals or drinks, the snorkeling was great, and the beach is kept pristine. Mauna Lani Sea Adventures is right here as well and we used them one morning for whale watching and snorkeling. I would highly recommend them as well. Just another convenience of staying here.

We hit every highlight (I think) from this house. Hawi, Pololu Valley, Waimea, Captain Cook, Waikoloa, etc. We did spend one night at Volcano Village (double booked) and could not wait to get back to our "home" at 628.

Also, and perhaps most importantly, Jen is a great host. She's responsive and caring and has created a wonderful environment for a fantastic vacation. We've stayed at quite a few vacation rentals throughout the world and this is one I love the most.
