About Donna Brucato
This townhouse is owned by two close friends. We always loved taking trips together to Mauna Lani and decided that investing in a shared property would allow us to build many more amazing Hawaiian memories with each other and our families. Its only right to share it with you when we aren't using it!
Donna Brucato purchased this Townhome in 2013
Why Donna Brucato chose Puako
You can have the best of both words at the Mauna Lani because you can enjoy the serene, quiet seclusion of the open landscapes and tropical foliage by the beach or choose from so many activities like shopping, biking, golfing, tennis, the spa, and much much more! Really, The Shops at Mauna Lani are the real reason people stay in this area. Its more than just shopping, its like a community with something for everyone! You get a relaxing resort getaway the convenience of The Shops and restaurants at walking distance.
What makes this Townhome unique
What sets our property apart from the rest of the rentals in the area is the quality of the interior matched only with the breathtaking views from both of the master suites! Even the bathrooms are spectacular with soaking tubs and dual vanities! Because we both see the importance of having a well-equipped kitchen, we made sure to provide the best appliances for your use. But of course, with The Shops nearby you HAVE to take a night off of cooking to enjoy a nice dinner out while you are here!

Wonderful Condo in Mauna Lani
This property was very well appointed. It has two master bedrooms and master bathrooms along with an additional sleeping area with bunk beds. The kitchen has everything you could possibly want. The back of the condo overlooks the North Course at Mauna Lani. We had a lovely time and were very impressed with the condo. The property manager was extremely helpful and immediately helped us with a few minor issues. (really minor) The condo includes access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club. We would definitely stay in this condo again given the opportunity.
The unit itself is beautiful and decorated perfectly (although I’d never feel comfortable staying with children younger than ours—youngest is 8 and not rowdy....there are breakable items sitting everywhere). There were notes regarding a renovation coming for the upstairs bathroom and I agree this needs to be done as the fixtures are pretty outdated and just in need of replacement in general from wear. My husband fixed the shower head when we were there as it sits pretty low and wouldn’t ‘hold’ in a tilt position for anyone taller than 5 ft. I would have taken a bath but I couldn’t get the water warm enough to fill the tub (shower seemed to work fine for warm water though so not sure what that issue is with water temp). Our younger kids loved the bunk bed area and this was the only unit we saw that offered this.
Our communication wasn’t the greatest as the manager was traveling at times. We adjusted dates a couple times (had a split stay on the island and weren’t quite sure how much time to allocate to each area of the island so I felt guilty in that we were kind of ‘needy’ prior to arriving, but adjustments were eventually made). I did end up having to specifically request a refund for one of ours nights that was never processed 60 days prior when originally requested.
We never received checkin instructions and this was probably my biggest issue with communication. We showed up to the gate and had no idea how to get in. We had a stay down in Volcano immediately following and had been messaged a code for entry, specific directions, helpful things for our stay, etc. prior to arriving. That was never received for this property. I ended up having to call upon arrival to get this information. Thankfully we did get a quick response to this phone call. Upon entering the unit, it was crazy hot......nearly 90 degrees. She did mention it would be warm and I understand minimizing a/c use when the unit is empty but this was kind of excessive. It took the unit until the following morning to feel comfortable so our sleep that 1st night wasn’t great. The unit was not very well stocked in my opinion. We don’t cook much on vacation but we do occasionally make a breakfast or a spaghetti dinner. I make my own sauce and use a tad of sugar to sweeten it. There were 8 different salts but not a single pinch of sugar or black pepper. Other than salt options, there’s not much kept in the kitchen that I could find.
Still enjoyed our short stay!
Oh my! This review is heart breaking and yes, you changed your mind I think three times or more! That is so understandable when you can't make a decision what do! it's hard planning a vacation. I am so sorry, but the cost of running air-conditioning on the island is 2nd in the nation. I can't even run mine when I'm not home! :-) But I do understand you wishes to have it immediately perfect for you! I am terrible sorry about that. We will look into no pepper in the unit. That should not have happened. I will review the list recommended for rental supplies up to now, we have received raving reviews of how well it is stocked, so I'm taken by that comment, but take it to heart. There is nothing breakable other than some shells, so tiny kids can definitely stay in our unit. Thanks Ann!
Beautiful & relaxing!
We’ve been using VRBO on the Big Island for several years and I think this is my very favorite place to date! The back patio area is so beautiful, amazing landscaping, golf course views, and felt very private! Beds are super comfortable, kitchen is great with very nice appliances. Location is very convenient to shops & the beach club. Couldn’t be happier.
Would definitely stay here again!
Mauna Lani condo
We rented this condo for a family vacation . The condo is very comfortable, beautifully decorated and the kitchen is very well equipped for all of your cooking needs. The rental comes with access to the beach Club which is a great family beach for young families and wonderful snorkeling cove . There are shops and restaurants near by as well as some of the best beaches in Hawaii.
Perfect for our needs!
Loved staying here. Everything went smoothly; managers were very easy to work with. Amenities were great, met a new family that vacations in the complex at the same time each year. Looking forward to meeting them again next year. We will be back during the summer, hoping to book again.
Extremely clean, well thought out and appointed condo with a wonderful amount of space. More updated than many islands properties, and well maintained. Perfect for those who love to prepare some simple meals at home, which I would recommend here because the lanai boasts one of the better views of the Mauna Lani golf course, the gorgeous homes up on champions ridge, and then the volcanoes behind that. We could have sat and sipped our coffee all day. Wel also loved the extremely spacious upper level balconies off the dual master bedrooms.
You won’t regret booking this one.
Just minutes from the shops at Mauna Lani, you could spend all day window shopping, choose from the many restaurants for a fine dining experience, and finish the evening with an entertaining Polynesian show! For the kids, there is even a 4-D adventure ride!
