4 Bedroom ★ 3.5 Bath ★ 3 Lanai ★ Sleeps 10

Welcome to our 4 bedroom Serenity Villa at KaMilo, on the Big Island of Hawaii


Completed in summer 2014, Serenity Villa is part of our Hawaiian Luxury Collection.

Serenity Villa at KaMilo: VRBO 577859 - 4 bedroom, sleeps 10

Tranquility Villa at Kulalani: VRBO 577861 - 2 bedroom, sleeps 6

Harmony Villa at KaMilo: VRBO 629781 - 3 bedroom, sleeps 9

Serenity Villa is one of the few newly constructed four bedroom homes on the entire Kohala coast for rent. This home provides a perfect setting for your Hawaii getaway and is well suited for large groups of up to 10 people.

We have been visiting the Big Island for over 13 years as renters and have observed best practices of 10 other owners to truly understand what sets the best apart. We have taken these collective experiences and sought to create a vacation home that we can share with you and that will set your new standard for excellence as well. We also love to share our tips and advice for great things to do and see in Hawaii.

We love friends & families

• Big Island is such a wonderulf place to spend with your friends and family, children and grandchildren. Vacations create such wonderful memories; our hope is this trip will be one of your fondest family memories and that you'll return year after year.

This 4 bedroom home is fully furnished with (2) Master Suites, each with a private ensuite, and King size bed. The third bedroom is furnished with (2) queen beds, and the 4th bedroom with (1) queen.

The airy open concept main floor includes kitchen, dining area, great room, and large lanai with outdoor kitchen. The dining room table will comfortably accommodate 8 people plus another 6 at the lanai outdoor table, and there are plenty of dishes for those large gathering meals! The large sectional and coffee table is perfect for relaxing, playing games from our extensive collection, listening to music, or watching the large 65' LED TV with complimentary NETFLIX and AppleTV.

The main floor lanai, equipped with outdoor kitchen, outdoor couch, and dining area is a perfect place to enjoy throughout the day. Each lanai is tastefully furnished for your comfort and enjoyment. Whether you’re celebrating a birthday, anniversary, a new job, retirement, or simply celebrating the sunshine, our home is sure to create a great experience.

o Beyond building an elegant, yet comfortable furnished home, we know its often the small surprises and conveniences that make all the difference.

Examples include:

• High-end luxury mattresses in all bedrooms for your comfort and enjoyment

• Luxurious 1500 thread count sheets for all beds

• Specialty soaps and luxurious towels

• A fully equipped kitchen for all of your cooking, baking and BBQing needs

• High end Ninja blender for making great smoothies and other tropical drinks

• Large selection of vinegars, oils and spices

• Starter pack of Kona coffee & a collection of teas

• Popcorn

For your day at the Beach

We love building really big sand castles. Kohala sand is exceptional for this and we have the tools for kids and adults alike. For your day at the beach, you’ll find

• Comfortable beach chairs, beach mats, umbrella's, sand toys and sandcastle making equipment, volleyball and football

• Large collection of snorkel gear in multiple sizes so you can share the wonders of the ocean

• Boogie boards to enjoy playing in the waves

• Life jackets, floaties for the younger ones

• Large wheeled cooler and tupperware containers for your beach picnic

Enjoy our collection of 7 bikes (adult, youth and kids with helmets and locks) allowing you to explore the Mauna Lani resort. They are great for going to the Private Beach Club, exploring the Black Sand Beach, historical grounds, Fairmont resort hotel or the many other wonderful places that Mauna Lani has to offer. Ask us about deals on a GEM Neighborhood Electric Vehicle (Golf cart) rental for even more family fun.

For those with children

Having traveled with our kids when they were young we know how difficult it is to lug all the baby equipment. Our goal is to make your life easier so we have equipped our vacation home with :

• Portable crib

• High chair

• Baby monitors

Things to do

Staying in KaMilo gives you full access to its Recreation Center with fitness equipment and multiple hot tubs and lap pool, free form pool and kiddie pool. For a larger celebration, email the owners to reserve the covered Recreation Hale and outdoor kitchen for a private function (see pictures).

You can also take advantage of the clean private beach club staffed with lifeguards and the Na Pua Restaurant just two miles away. Excellent snorkeling in calm waters!

A short drive away are the six(6) of the most spectacular beaches in Hawaii including Beach 69, Halpuna beach and the breath-taking Mauna Kea beach.

The Kohala coast is a golfer's paradise with seven (7) challenging courses all within 7 miles of our villa.

Minutes down the street is the Shops at Mauni Lani where you can find super-market, coffee shops, restaurants, clothing and accessory stores, art, and free weekly entertainment in the evenings.

A short walk from Serenity Villa is the Fairmont Orchard Hotel. Make Serenity Villa your home, extend your conference stay!


For smaller families who don't require 4 bedrooms, please consider a stay at Tranquility Villa, our 2 bedroom home at Kululani (sleeps 6), which shares the same recreation complex as KaMilo.

By partnering with similar like minded homeowners we are creating a collection of homes with the same high standards. Our guests rank our customer service amongst the highest on the Big Island.

Jeff & Suzanne purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Jeff & Suzanne chose Kohala Coast

We love the amenities available at KaMilo and the proximity to so many amazing beaches. The 2-acre Recreation Village including 2 pools, 2 spas, a fitness lounge and outdoor hale for dining and relaxation have brought us hours of enjoyment. The finishes of the new homes at KaMilo are exceptional. Whether its resting and enjoying a lazy day or packing in lots of activities/adventures this area of the Big Island has it all.

What makes this townhome unique

As we were frequent VRBO renters for many years before we became owners, we've made every effort to incorporate all of our learnings into our home, so that you can have the best possible experience.

Guestbook comments from the owner

After an unfortunate mishap at a previous rental Henry and family came to our Serenity Villa early and had a great stay.

Henry wrote: "I want to thank you for your support and kind generosity. Your wonderfully villa and first class customer service made our vacation enjoyable in the end. We all loved your villa, Mauna Lani area, and want to stay there when we return to the big island again. "

Lovely spacious house with all the amenities. Convenient location.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Serenity Villa for nine days and had a wonderful time. The house is lovely and spacious. It has all the amenities and is centrally located. Very convenient to go north to Hapuna Beach or south to Kua Beach or Kona. We liked using the tennis court and watching the sunset at the Fairmont Orchid. The pools at the complex are very nice and no one was using them other than us. Also the beach club was wonderful for small children.

This home is just beautiful and the owners take amazing care of you. The beds are cozy and the rooms are spacious and comfortable. It has all the amenities you need and more to have a wonderful family holiday. We brought small children as well as grandparents with us and we all had everything we needed and more. The home comes equipped with water gear, sand toys and the like. It is very well cared for and as clean as it is beautiful.

One of the things we especially loved was how well equipped the kitchen is. It even comes with a few spices to make your stay that much more like home. We really enjoy sliding open those huge glass doors and sitting out on the deck for a meal, to read a book or just to listen to the birds sing in the island sky. Its truly priceless.

The house also comes with private beach access which is so wonderful for families. Its a little cove with white sand, chairs and cabana's great for any age. It has amazing snorkeling, paddle board rentals, a restaurant, chairs and just overall aloha.

By far this is one of our favorite VRBO homes and it has set the standard of excellence that we greatly appreciate.

Wonderful house with spacious living room and beautiful bedrooms.

We had a fabulous time. We have stayed at other mauna lani condos in the past but this was one of the best house. Very well maintained and also had a simple interior decor with a touch of Hawaiian essence. Definitely great for families.

Amazing Family Stay

  • 5 of 5

This house is amazing as our the owners. Our family of 9, 8 adults and 1 child, love it all. The spacious living room, kitchen, and dining room were a perfect place for us to spend together. All the bedrooms were comfortable, lacking a bit in light but making up big in relaxation. The owners were attentive, getting us laundry detergent as they were running out, and leaving us only the best amenities. They were very responsive prior to our arrival, answering all our questions and inquiries with the upmost help. We would absolutely reccomend this and wuould stay here again if given the chance.

Owner's Response: Aloha Melissa and thank you for your kind review. Having stayed in a number of different homes in Hawaii prior to purchasing ours, we invested in full black out blinds in all bedrooms so that our guests who who don't want to wake early to the bight Hawaii sun don't have! We're thrilled you had a great stay and hope you'll come back soon! Mahalo, Jeff and Suzanne

Fantastic Vacation Home!

  • 5 of 5

We spent ten days at the Serenity Villa. First, the location could not be better. The community is a ten minute drive from Hapuna Beach, the best beach in the world. In addition, the Fairmont Orchid is a ten minute walk from the home, with a fantastic, beach, spa as well as numerous restaurant options. The home is very large - we were a group of two adults and four teenagers. There was plenty of room for all of us. The furnishings were top notch and the owners were super accommodating in helping us with all of our "special" requests. There was nothing that they did not provide - from boogie boards to snorkel equipment to beach chairs and umbrellas - everything was included. During the days, we were able to go zip lining, horseback riding, boogie boarding and we even took a helicopter ride over the volcano. I think that the highlight of the trip, however, was stargazing at the top of Mauna Kea. 13,000+ feet with the clearest skies on the planet! The Big Island is the best and this is the best place to stay.
