Welcome to The Villages #304 at Mauna Lani! This newly-redecorated luxury Lehua unit features one suite downstairs and two upstairs, each with their own en-suite bathrooms and top of the line finishings.
Our stay was very enjoyable. The property was very clean and well equipped. The barbecue and dining area "al fresco" was a bonus.
We were a family of 5 and the space at the property was generous. We were able to enjoy each other without feeling cramped. It may have been nicer to stay closer to the beach but we found a shortcut through the Lava Tube historic site and it was a very comfortable walk to the Mauna Lani Beach. Access to two bikes also helps to get around without using the car in the Mauna Lani area.
The beach was good for swimming and it was easy to get something to eat at the location and spend a nice day snorkelling and swimming.
The walking trail to the Petroglyph area (past the hotel) was terrific. We saw more than 10 turtles lazing around and took great photos.
The shopping centre was nearby and had a good grocery store and several nice restaurants including one that offered vegetarian food.
Distances on the island demand that one drives a great deal but the location of the Mauna Lani makes it all accessible. We travelled to the Waipio valley in an hour, took Saddle Road to the volcano in approximately two hours and a trip to the Kona area was an hour. Finally, the beaches to the north such at Hapuna and Mauna Kai were very accessible. All in all, the location proved to be quite central.
I would recommend a stay at this property. Happy holidays!
We loved our stay at the Mauna Lani Villages! It was very peaceful and quite and a beautiful condo with all the space and luxuries we could even think of. 3 onsuite bedrooms, plus 1/2 bath and laundry room, private patio and relaxing, large lanai. All the furniture and linens, etc, were top notch and the kitchen had all we needed. Burt was so easy to work with and we felt right at home. Having the beach access was wonderful. Mauna Lani is a great place to vacation!
There were 3 adult couples here to celebrate 2 birthdays. We spent a total of 7 days, it was lovely. None of us wanted to leave. It was great to have 3 en-suite bedrooms for the couples (there are extra twin beds in two of the rooms, so it would work well with children too). The master suite was huge with its own balcony. All the shared living spaces were wonderful, clean, new furniture, large dining table, laundry, and half bath.
We ate breakfast at home each day and had dinner at home four out of seven nights. Having the grocery store within walking distance was very convienient. The outdoor cooking space was great for BBQing, and the outdoor seating was used almost every night. The kitchen is very well equiped (one of our travelers is a chef who appreciated sharp knives). Plenty of dishes, pots pans and serving dishes, rice cooker, coffee pot, blender, and toaster.
We spent two days at the owners club beach, a bit far for walking from the condo, but not bad if you are using the 2 bikes that were available, or driving which is about a 3-5 min drive. We rented snorkels from Bobs snorkel which is right next to the condo for about $10 per day per person, and used them at the owners beach which was a very calm place to snorkel, lots of colorful fish. Hapuna beach is about a 10 minute car ride up the road (a great swimming, boogie boarding, lounging, white sandy beach). There is easy access to Saddle road of you want to visit the other side of the island, which we did twice. Once to go zip-lining and visit Akaka falls. Other bonuses, 2 bikes, a cooler, 5 beach chairs, fins, 2 boogie boards, and multiple beach towels, which we used almost daily.
The only minor frustration was not being able to access the internet in the livingroom. (Not what we went to Hawaii for). I was able to access it from the master bedroom with no problem.
Burt was the property manager that checked us in, he was very nice and told us everything we need to know about the property and surrounding area. He was easy to contact by texting. We did not need any thing while there, and checking in and out was easy. Our whole group agreed that we would love to come back again.
We loved staying here! It's spacious, clean, and conveniently located. We loved the outdoor area for playing with our kid.
The bathrooms are super nice, comfy beds, nice ammenities like Netflix, washer/dryer, sand toys/chairs. Only things that weren't awesome were that the internet was not consistently good and the outdoor grill doesn't keep a good moderate temperature (too low or too high, no in between).
It was great having access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club--snorkeling was great, water was calm, chairs/cabanas/lifeguard provided=very easy leisure! Another great perk was on Mon and Thurs, we could walk right over to The Shops and enjoy fire dancing and hula for free. Super fun!
This unit is tastefully decorated and furnished and exceptionally well out-fitted. The kitchen has nearly anything you might need to prepare a dinner for 8-10 people and lovely outdoor space off the main lanai (of which there are three). It is quiet and cool and the property manager with whom we worked, Burt Bonks, was outstanding - extremely helpful in every way. Book this fine unit - you won't be sorry!
I really love this place, next door to restaurants, bars and grocery store. I stayed here because it's close to my friends house and we had several kids and adults. Very quite and friendly neighborhood. The host stopped by once but we didn't need anything so I didn't have much interaction with them. Internet worked just fine for us. Having the snorkling gear, bikes and ice chest was a huge plus. All the spices and cooking essentials that we needed. Recomended to my sister in law. Very comfortable and large living area.
