Lauren & Brad Greider live in North San Diego County. We love to scuba dive in remote areas that are usually very difficult to get to. We discovered the ocean at the Mauna Lani and all that it has to offer. There is so much to see snorkeling from the time we step into the water to the distant reefs. The Big Island is beautiful and magical and a very short flight from the mainland. We all love the water and wanted to create a tropical home away from home. We are happy to share this Aloha with our guests.
Lauren Greider purchased this condo in 2005
The Terrace has the unique beauty of being on the ocean and the ancient fish ponds. Makaiwa Bay has the best snorkeling we have found on the island. The Beach Club provides safe easy access to this protected bay. The Terrace is also beautifully landscaped with mature trees. There is plenty of shade and fresh ocean breezes. Sleeping turtles can be seen on the beaches in the late afternoon.
Our condo has a unique island feel. The vaulted ceiling in the great room is hand painted. The walls are textured. The top floor provides privacy, security and a beautiful view. We have windows in the front of the unit which allows the fresh ocean breezes and trade winds to flow through the unit. We are also up only one flight of stairs from the parking level. The Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, the Golf Club, The Fitness Club, The Beach Club and Napua, the restaurant at the Beach Club are all in walking distance. You can stroll to the two beautiful white sand beaches, through lava fields with petroglyphs, or through the fish ponds.
The living room area is spacious and creatively decorated, and the lanai beckoned us every morning for breakfast. The two separate bedroom areas allow for privacy. The kitchen is nicely appointed; the owner is quite responsive. An excellent experience.
We had a great time staying at this property. The owner was very easy to work with and so helpful. We have used VRBO for many vacations and this was one of the best experiences we have ever had. The condo was in a great location and we loved walking down to the beach club to go snorkeling and enjoy all the water activities. Access to the hotel was easy - loved seeing the turtles released for the 4th of July. Would love to return to the Big Island someday and would definitely come back to this property.
Mauna Lani Terrace is a great location with wonderful pond and ocean views. F 302 , as a unit is , is one of the best , if not the best. It is a two BR 2 1/2 bath with a great view and comfortable lanai. The decor and amenities are top notch and compatable with the setting . Snorkel gear, boogie board, towels etc etc. I will come back to this location and this unit each time I return to the Big Island which will be often. It deserves a five star rating!
Do not hesitate to rent this condo! It is in an ideal location with ocean views, walk to the beach club, walk to restaurants, a couple of blocks from the market and shopping. The unit is like a high end hotel, only better, with two bedrooms, high end finishes everywhere, your own kitchen for snacks or meals, washer/dryer, internet, and parking. Best of all is the organization, service, and helpfulness of the owner. They have stocked the condo with beach toys, snorkeling gear, all the towels and toiletries of a luxury hotel room, and a kitchen fully stocked with the dishes, gadgets, cleaning supplies, and even storage bags every home needs, and detailed directions on everything you need to know. This was the perfect spot for our family, and we would rent here again on our next visit.
I hesitate to even write this because I don't want word to get out! We have stayed in a number of VRBO properties, but never one as well equipped as this. Not a single detail is overlooked and the condo is spotless. It is decorated beautifully and well laid out. You will not need to worry about paper towels, ziploc bags, shampoo, dish soap, or anything else. This was a perfect place for our family of four to enjoy a fantastic vacation. Lauren should teach a course on how to prepare your vacation home for rental. We hope to return as often as possible.
This was the best VRBO experience we have ever had, and we have stayed in over 30 of them. The place is gorgeous, impeccably stocked, organized, and cleaned. Lauren is a perfect host and manager, caring for every detail expediently. We would go back in a heartbeat.
