Awesome week. Great place
This house is stocked with everything you need
Property was great for our family stay
For our family vacation including young children the property works out very well.
Perfect in every way
My family of six was lucky enough to spend 10 wonderful days at this property in August 2019. We had high expectations and this property exceeded them. We loved the location and the access to both resorts (Marriott and Westin) nearby. After adventure filled days on the Big Island we were always happy to return to this home for its comfort and beautiful sunsets. I highly recommend this property and look forward to returning.
Great family gathering location!
We rented this house for a 10-day family get-together in July, 2019. Our event started with a group of eight but two had to leave after a few days due to other commitments. This house turned out to be perfect for us because while the main house easily accommodates six, the attached guest apartment (rented separately) was available for the two nights that the extra couple were with us (avoiding the need & expense of renting a place large enough for eight for the entire 10 days).
This house is wonderfully appointed. It’s obvious that the owners enjoy living there and that they’ve gone to some trouble to tastefully decorate their home with quality furnishings, but not to excess. The kitchen is thoroughly equipped with appliances & serving ware, including a rice cooker which we have found to be curiously uncommon in the Islands.
Outside, a very spacious lanai (patio) features a large and beautiful in-ground pool & jacuzzi. From here you’ll have expansive views of the ocean and much of the coast as well as the gentle green slopes ascending to the north east. A manly Weber gas BBQ is provided for your grilling needs (we used it three times) along with pool & beach toys. The lanai also includes plenty of chaise lounges for soaking up sun, and a large round glass table where eight can gather & dine outside. At night, the sky turns a star-speckled inky black and you’ll find that at what first appears to be a wispy cloud above you is in fact the Milky Way Galaxy!
We never felt crowded. Everyone had room to spread out & enjoy the peace & quiet of this wonderful locale. That said, we probably spent most of our time out on the lanai – either reclining on the chaise lounges or around the table to visit & dine when the wind would come up as it can and does, often with little notice.
The property fronts an attractive golf course is easily accessed just two minutes off the highway through a manned gate, so you feel very secure. A clicker is provided for the two-car garage which is great because you don’t have to leave the rental parked in the sun. Get groceries in Waimea – it’s an easy inland run and well worth the trip.
Lastly, an unexpected bonus was the sweetest little black cat who would come by to visit from next door. She (we dubbed her “Lulu”) is well fed at home and was only interested in our company. We all wanted to adopt her, but sadly could not offer her a better life than she already has living in paradise!
Thank you SO much for your gracious review. My favorite spot in this home is the lanai. The huge pool is so much fun for kids and adults. We look forward to hosting your stay. Mahalo! Donna
The house was exactly as advertised. Spacious, beautiful, well-stocked and perfect for our group of 8 (we used the Ohana unit too). We thoroughly enjoyed the sunsets from the backyard, took full advantage of the pool and dined out on the lanai. We loved the amenities at both the Hapuna and Mauna Kea resorts! This will be our first choice to stay the next time we are on the Big Island! Aloha and Mahalo!
Beautiful home, great location!
We loved having the pool, our kids played in it every single day. The house is a great space and it's nice it's stocked with basic essentials upon arrival. It was nice to have boogie boards and a few beach toys already there as well. There were quite a few ants, centipedes, and other various bugs crawling around inside the house on a daily basis, but that isn't a huge deal. We didn't think paying the extra resort fee was necessary, but it would be nice to have at least a parking pass to drive down and park at the private entrance by the Westin to Hapuna Beach, as opposed to getting out on the highway and driving down and paying $5 to park in the public access. We were 6 adults and 4 small children and absolutely loved our stay here. It was an incredible vacation and we would definitely book and stay here again! It was quiet and safe and the outdoor space was fantastic.
Thank you SO much for your lovely comments about the resort and the home. We have monthly pest control service so I was unaware of your issues during your stay. They would gladly have come right back out. Being out in the middle of the ocean certainly requires island habitat management! So glad your party of ten enjoyed the space! Mahalo and we look forward to your return!
Enjoy shops, restaurants, and grocery at The Shops at Mauna Lani Resort or The King and Queen Shops at Waikoloa Village just 10 minutes out of the resort. Or pop down to Kawaihea to the local Convenient Shop for gas or last minute needs, just 8 minutes away.
Drive up Waimea Saturday mornings for their Farmer's Market. Bring your jacket because it can be unpredictably wet and cold. Starbuck's has a fireplace! Groceries, restaurants, hardware store, etc even an annual rodeo show! Don't miss the local Hawaiian Cafe for breakfast where the locals hang. Cash only and so much food, one plate feeds two people! Hawaiian pancakes as big as your plate!
