Kulalani Resort Vacation - 4 days in heaven

  • 5 of 5

Kulalani and the surrounding Mauna Lani Resort area offers evertything you'd want in a Hawaii vacation. The condo itself was very nice with comfortable furniture, plenty of room for the 4 of us, very clean, and good access to the pools. Kulalani is also very well located to access the private Beach Club of Mauna Lani: and with free passes so nice! The Beach club has very nice soft sand beach with easy swimming and snorkeling or for the more adventurous, kayaks and paddle boards.

Kulalani is also well located to venture outside the many resort stores and restaurants of Mauna Lani and Waikoloa (not that you need to). Only a 30 minute drive to Kona for some town centered activities and many more stores and restaurants.

Too mnay fun things to do on the island for our short 4 day visit. We'll be back!

The grand Kulalani Resort Pool Facility, convenient nearby shopping and dining at the Shops at Mauna Lani, and the white sands of Mauna Lani Beach Club are icing on the cake to a relaxing stay in this town home. We look forward to welcoming you back soon and thank you for staying with us at Kohala Luxury Rentals! With Warm Aloha, Wendee

Absolutely awesome 2 weeks from check in to check out, Wendee helped to make this a awesome vacation

  • 5 of 5

When i first inquired about visiting, Wendee assured me the Big Island has loving welcoming people & She was so right! We didn't have one bad experience in our two week visit. I even called Wendee to get reassurance on the drive in from the airport to the resort, it was after 9pm & she answered her phone and stayed on the line till I pulled up & unlocked the door. So kind & helpful! The condo is all and more of the description.

Extremely clean & everything was so comfortable. The grounds perfectly manicured. The pools, hot tubs & workout facility were great and easily accessible. The condo is nicely decorated & comfortable. The lani off the dining room had a awesome Viking grill & outside kitchen. The lani also had a coffee table & chairs perfect for drinking coffee & listening to all the birds sing in the morning & a large outside dining table & chairs for serving up fresh meals off the grill. Up stairs master suite with private lani with comfy chairs & table, perfect for early morning coffee or drinks. The large master bath had a very nice tile & glass walk in shower. It had a large jetted tub. It had tons of storage. 2 basin vanity with nice granite countertops.

The kitchen & all appliances, cabinets & cooking utensils was perfectly equipped for cooking and snacks. The location was perfect to divide the island into quadrants for daily activities & sight seeing. Inside the resort are several nice restaurants & shops. Theres also a nice grocery store inside the resort.

We became acquainted with several owners of similar condos in the resort & all loved owning & living in this community.

I can't say enough good things about our visit to Hawaii's Big Island & the creature comforts of this place. If you are considering visiting, you can't go wrong if you choose Kulalani 2001. Because of our great experience we will definitely return & hopefully stay in this great place. Until next time.

Peace be with You!

Steven & Daniel

Great for a family. Awesome location.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I stayed with our two daughters (9 & 6) and this was the perfect spot for us. The pool is super close so we were able to enjoy that everyday, and there's a great grocery store barely 1/2 mile away to keep stocked up on food. Beach chairs and boogie boards came in super handy, as did the cooler. Kitchen has most anything you'll need. We felt right at home and it was always so relaxing to come home to the open space after a long day.

Owner's Response: Mahalo Brent it was our pleasure to welcome you to Kulalani 2001 and we are so pleased to receive your glowing review! The convenience of the wonderful pool facility, exercise room and nearby grocery store all make for a perfect vacation destination. Beach gear, a fully stocked kitchen and bbq grill make a huge difference for our guests overall enjoyment and allow you to pick and choose what meals you enjoy in the comfort of your vacation home as dining out for every meal can be expensive at any resort location. We hope to welcome you back in the near future and thank you again for choosing to stay with Kohala Luxury Rentals! Mahalo, Wendee

Beautiful property...

  • 5 of 5

Our family (my husband, myself and our two teen agers) recently returned from a 10 day stay at Kulalani. We were more than impressed with the condo and property. It was so nice to have two levels, two washrooms and the washer and dryer. There were boogie boards, pool noodles and a large cooler for the beach. (My only suggestion would be adding a smaller cooler for drinks etc). The condo was extremely clean, the beds and pillows were amazing and the manager Wendee was wonderful to deal with. Mahalo for letting us enjoy your condo!

Great Unit in Mauna Lani Resort.

  • 4 of 5

Great value for money. Unit is very clean & well equipped. Wendee was fantastic to work with and even got my buddy a unit at last minute in same complex. Had a great time,plenty of room. Only reason it doesn't get 5* is the view was limited to foliage. Still, for the price, it was fantastic!

Owner's Response: Mahalo Brian, it was our pleasure to welcome you to Kulalani 2001. We are so pleased that your stay was fantastic! Although the view is not a direct ocean view home, it's popularity has been ever growing due to the value, cleanliness, spaciousness, properly stocked contents and close proximity to the wonderful Kulalani Recreational Facility. We hope to welcome you back in the near future and thank you kindly for your awesome review! Mahalo, Wendee

The perfect condo and complex!

  • 5 of 5

My husband, teenage daughter and I stayed in this condo for 2 weeks and loved it. This condo is exactly as pictured and the manager Wendee is the best, so helpful and responsive. We felt extremely comfortable in the condo and our daughter loved having her own room and bathroom downstairs. The condo is stocked with things you need and a few kitchen items I suggested to Wendee during our stay that were no there, she left for us during our stay. Thank you so much for the large wok style pan! The kitchen even has a rice maker! There is plenty of dishwasher and laundry (we left some more) detergent and lots of towels, beach and bath. The washer and dryer came in handy and we used them everyday, only came with carry-ons which is all you really need. The beds were very comfortable, too. The condo is in a great location, really close to the pools which are quiet. Several times we were the only ones in the pool, which was lovely not to have people everywhere like it is down in Waikoloa. There are several coolers in the garage for you to back picnic lunches for excursions, like a trip to the volcano. The beach club at Mauna Lani was beautiful and we loved snorkeling in the bay, rent gear from Snorkel Bobs in the Mauna Lani shops. Also for grocery shopping, the Foodland in the shops is good and will give you a discount with a phone number but drive up to Waikoloa Village (~6 miles) and go to the full service KTA grocery store in the shops area. It is much larger, has a lot more selection, and less expensive. Make sure you get there ad and coupon book as well, just ask someone for the book. There is also a post office in Waikoloa Village. Also, stop at the Costco, about 1.5 miles south of the Kona airport and stock up on several items before heading to condo. Costco also has the cheapest gas prices on the island. Overall, I would say we choose the right property for us and this condo was perfect! Great management and great location on the island, making it easy to get to places and the complex simply beautiful, private and relaxing. I miss it already!
