Took the entire family (4 teenagers) to Hawaii for our vacation this summer. This unit had everything you need to have a great time. Unit had plenty of space for our girls and boys. The kitchen was well equipped and outdoor patio had an excellent grill with exhaust for grilling. Beds were comfortable and well maintained. Unit was spotless and came with a washer & dryer with detergent for laundry. In the garage, we had umbrellas, chairs, and snorkel gear to enjoy at the beach club which has great snorkeling. It was like swimming in an aquarium, we saw turtles most days. Mauna Lani is a great resort with two excellent and beautiful golf courses. Also the shops were close to the unit and walkable. It is only 30 minutes away from the Kona airport. Barb was and excellent host with suggestions and very responsive to our questions. We took several day trips during the week to see all the spots on the big island and even a day trip to Honolulu. We all had a great time and look forward to going back.
Our family has been lucky enough to stay at this beautiful condo a few times now and it never ever disappoints. It has everything you need for the beach and all the comforts of home. Beautiful spot near the pool but still private. A short wonderful walk to the beach. We couldn’t ask for more. Thank you for sharing your home!!
This place was perfect and the location was great! The owners had everything we needed there and more, from laundry detergent to body wash to spices! The place was clean and comfortable to stay in. We would definitely stay there again!
We had a wonderful stay! We were two adults, and 3 teenage girls. Barbie was quick to answer our questions, and provided good feedback on navigating the area. The condo is fully stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation, and we made good use of the snorkeling gear and beach chairs. The location is great for exploring the island, and I would definitely return!
Great for our family!
Really enjoyed our stay. The house is really nice with comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchen and outdoor grill are fantastic. The house is very well stocked for cooking. All the beach gear including snorkeling is provided in the garage. Bikes in the picture are not available for use. The only minor issue with our stay was noise from the upstairs neighbors. The morning they were packing to head out woke us up very early with loud footsteps above us. That was the only time noise was an issue, never heard the cleaning crew or the next guests that moved in.
Overall a great place, I would highly recommend it to others and would stay there again.
Very well stocked and maintained condo in a quiet complex in the Mauna Lani area. You get access to the mauna Lani beach club beach and parking which made beach days with our toddler a breeze. We look forward to repeat stays here. Barbra was responsive and ensured everything went smooth.
The condo was as listed and more. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for us and our teen kids. The garage is filled with everything you could want for a beach or pool day - chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, noodles, cooler on a roller. Lots of great places to walk around, very convenient location. The owner was very responsive anytime we reached out, and she was very friendly and kind. Would stay here again for sure.
The condo was perfect for our group (grandma, couple, kids (11 & 14). Really well stocked both in the kitchen and in the garage. The girls loved being able to spill out the backyard directly into the pool. The walk to the beach was very easy (15 minutes for rabble), although a little exposed for some on the tired march home. But it was worth it since we were greeted by sea turtles literally steps into the water. The location gave us perfect access for what we wanted to explore. The parking access at the beach club was great. Hāpuna beach was fantastic and just a short drive. Would definitely recommend.
We would go here again, if we had the chance. It was great. I guess the only thing that would be nice to fix would be to get the knives sharpened for other folks who use the kitchen as much as we did :)
This is just a wonderful condo in a small community in Mauna Lani. It is just steps out the back lanai to the pool and about a 3/4 mile walk down to the beach club (or a quick drive). The beach club is excellent for swimming/snorkeling. The condo was as advertised with everything you could need for a fun Hawaii stay: snorkel equipment, beach chairs/towels, umbrella, cooler, boogie boards. Condo is stocked with essentials so just needed to go to the store for food/perishables. The host is amazing and goes out of her way to be sure your stay is special. This will definitely be the condo I come back to for my Hawaii vacations! Mahalo and Aloha!
Quiet and peaceful location. Easy access to beach an surrounding activities. Well stocked accommodations. Thanks for a memorable family vacation.
The first thing I noticed was how tasteful the decorations were. Someone paid attention to the details. This was the perfect location for us as well. The beaches in this area are commonly white sand, with great snorkeling or boogie boarding which we love. This home had everything we needed. No need to rent anything for beach going! They have many boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear, towels, and coolers.
Barbra was great. She was super responsive to our needs. We had a noise complaint with our upstairs neighbors and she reported it right away.
Beautiful condo, nicely furnished, many extras, gorgeous pool
The only issue we had was the noise of the many feet above us during our stay. We heard their walking, jumping and at times we saw the light fixtures shake. Thankfully we only had two nights of the 6+ person family staying above us.
This condo is located in the beautiful resort area of Mauna Lani. It is roughly 25 minutes N of Kona International Airport. From the moment you pull up to the gated entry on the street, you feel like you are in a resort.
The condo is well decorated and fully stocked. Our family of six, (4 adults and 2 kids) had plenty of room too spread out. All of the beds were extremely comfortable, and the bedrooms were very spacious.
The living area had a very nice and comfortable sectional and one arm chair. The eating area was equipped with a table and six chairs, plus four bar stools at the counter.
The kitchen had everything you would need. From two coffee makers (drip and Keurig) to a blender. Plenty of spices and other cooking material was in the pantry and cabinets.
Our family enjoyed the walking path to the beach, the closeness of the pool, and the shopping area that had a grocery, juice bar, and coffee shop.
The beach toys, chairs, fins and snorkels were a nice added touch, plus there were even coolers in the garage we used for a travel day to the Hilo side of the island.
Overall, I would not hesitate to stay here again. Barbara also had a lot of great tips.
The house is exactly what you see on line. The host has it fully stocked and amazed by all the little stuff they have. The pool is right outside back door, avale to barbecue and enjoy the quiet environment. Cooked multiple meals, make it easier with small kids. The beach club was great for snorkeling and teaching my kids without having to book an excursion. The host has a paddle board, boogie boards, and snorkeling gear. We enjoyed our trip and felt so comfortable and relaxed.
Thank you for allowing us to stay at your home and enjoy this beautiful island
This townhouse was the best stock townhouse I have ever stayed at. It had everything we needed. We went and got groceries but didn't have to worry about picking up basic spices or sauces. The communication with the owner was top notice.
We had a small water heater problem and she was right on it and had it fixed in no time. The beach toys were great! The small complex is wonderful. There were rarely more than a couple of people at the pool. If you want a quiet relaxing vacation, Book this townhouse.
We had a fantastic week here. The condo is beautiful, and has all the amenities you could possibly want. Barbra is a great communicator and was always quick to respond to our questions.
Our granddaughter loved the close proximity to the pool. I loved waking up and enjoying my morning coffee on the lanai, listening and watching the beautiful birds.
We will definitely recommend this condo to our friends!
This ground floor unit was clean and well maintained. The owner was very responsive for questions. The location was heavenly. We would happily stay in this unit again!
This was an ideal location for our family vacation. The condo was clean and really well stocked. The equipment in the garage was well organized and more than we had time to use. Plenty of space for a family of 5 adults and a toddler. The local beach is wonderful with the option to walk through the fishponds or drive using the parking pass. The pool was great and close to the nit. The host was responsive before and during our visit and provided all needed info. Definitely would be on our list if we make a return visit.
Our family (2 parents, 18 yo, 19 yo) had a wonderful stay at this beautiful condo. The condo itself is spacious, beautifully and tastefully decorated, extremely well stocked with supplies as well as items for our enjoyment (snorkels, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers. paddle board - although it should be noted that the bicycles are not available for the renters). The setting is gorgeous. Although not directly on the water, the grounds outside the condo (especially on the lanai side) have beautiful flowers and plants and there are many birds (the birds were the primary sounds we got to listen to sitting on the lanai). The condo is just steps away from a magnificent pool with waterfalls and a lovely hot tub. We enjoyed both daily. The pathway to the beach is so peaceful and enjoyable for walking, although we most often drove to the beach (5-10 min) in order to take the snorkels and food we wanted for our beach sitting. Loved the coffee shop within walking distance, too. The beach was amazing - we were always able to find lounge chairs available and always able to find a shady spot to sit. It was easy to snorkel there as the water was always quiet and there was lots of coral and fish to see. To enjoy boogie boarding, you do need to go to another local beach, but we were mostly interested in swimming and snorkeling, so did not seek out other beaches (there are many close by).
Restaurant choices in the resorts (this is mostly an area with resorts) are expensive, so we chose to drive to Kona or Wiamea (30-40 min drive) for meals out.
Overall, we loved the condo - clean, relaxing, extremely well stocked. When we had any problems (which were minimal), we were able to contact Barbie and she got back to us within a few hours and was always helpful.
Thank you for a wonderful Big Isalnd stay!!
Stop looking and book this place now if it's available. I conducted an extensive search to find the perfect place for our family on the Big Island, and am so glad we chose this place! The condo is clean, updated, and fully stocked with everything needed for a perfect beach vacation. The Owner is so sweet and responds immediately. Location was perfect, close to the community pool that was empty most of the time we used it. Would love to stay here again next time we visit the Big Island!!!
Had a wonderful time! The house is in a great location for a variety of activities. Our grandsons snorkeled for the first time and loved it 🌈
Thanks so much
We stayed in this unit for a week in March of 2022. The condo was just as described. Excellent location to a very nice community pool, and just a short walk to the beach by the lava tubes and fish ponds. Also near the shops. Everything worked as it should in the unit. Owner is very responsive & was able to work with us to book an extra day when our flight was cancelled. Very happy we chose to stay here & will look to book it again when we come back to Hawaii.
This charming beach condo was perfect in every way for our family of 5. Everything about it was warm, welcoming, and contributed to our perfect Hawaiian vacation! It was exceptionally clean, comfortable (beds are amazing - slept very well), and chalk full of amenities enabling us to enjoy our vacation as if we lived there - boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, and more! We enjoyed the pool and hot tub on the property daily and loved being able to walk to the beautiful beach to relax, snorkel, and swim. The hosts were extremely attentive and everything was as advertised, if not better! We sincerely enjoyed our stay and highly recommend, we will definitely be back!
This place was great. One of the best stocked rentals we have ever stayed in. And barb was a wonderful communicator. Perfect for our family with two teen boys.
We had an absolutely wonderful time renting this condo. The grounds are beautiful and the pool fabulous. We enjoyed the open air living and the ability to have screened doors open to allow a cross breeze through the condo. The garage is well stocked with all the beach gear you could need and helped make our stay even better. We loved our stay and can’t wait to return!
Very nice stay. Lots of beach chairs, umbrellas, snorkel gear included, saved a buck on rentals and all in good condition. Great access (easy walk or drive) to beach club snorkeling and hanging at the water, walking path through the lava fields, and even walk to the Shops. Solid in all respects with very little to say otherwise. Beds very firm but acceptable. Like many rentals, the kitchen knives need sharpening but the kitchen is otherwise well outfitted. Small living area and lanai, so not much room to hang out, but that works fine if you're out all day anyway. One bedroom has AC unit right outside, so if you go with windows open at night, you're OK. If you opt for AC at night, then whomever is in that room should be a heavy sleeper. All in all, a great place.
Excellent location, very nice and comfortable place. Completely stocked for beach and snorkeling fun.
Mauna Lani is our favorite place. The beach, restaurants and store with all essentials makes this area the best! This condo met all the marks. We especially loved the short walk to the pool which we often had to ourselves. A piece of paradise for sure.
Great experience! Cozy home. So many amenities which made our vacation perfect. The kids loved the pool! The beach was beautiful. Thank you Barbra for allowing us to make memories in your beautiful home!
This rental experience was awesome - the property is just as advertised, very comfortable and well stocked with towels and beach toys. Our young kids loved staying here.
The pool is super fun and right in your backyard - less than a minute walk to the entrance. The private beach that you get access to was also awesome for building sand castles and snorkeling.
Communicating with Barbra was great - she was easy to reach, made check in easy, and was really accommodating. Thank you again!
Condo was very comfortable, clean and well-stocked. Barbara was great at communicating. I highly recommend this property.

We enjoyed our stay at Barbie's Condo very much. We've stayed in condos in Mauna Lani in multiple times in past and we think this location works best for us -- close to beaches, shops, awesome evening walks etc. Barbie was very responsive and resolved a couple of minor things during our stay right away. We enjoyed her well-stocked garage with all kinds of toys -- sand toys, boogie boards, floaties and many more. We will come back again !
The condo is clean, spacious, and well stocked. The grounds are gorgeous, surrounded by lush greenery and bright hibiscus. The pool is nice, and the local restaurant and beach area is beautiful. If you want waves and turquoise water, Hapuna beach is a 10 min drive away and well worth the drive.

We absolutely loved this property! Barbie, the owner, is awesome. She responded quickly to our emails and was very helpful with tips and suggestions. We asked if there was a rice cooker and she didn’t have one. She actually bought one for us so we could use it while we were there! That’s what I would call five star service!! The property itself is exactly as shown in the photos… very clean and comfortable. The condo is well appointed and has everything you could need from a fully stocked kitchen to lots of beach equipment. The nearby private beach is beautiful… great for snorkeling, swimming, for families with shaded areas/several cabanas and easily accessible restrooms. The restaurant, Napua, is highly recommended! We enjoyed our last dinner there and it was fantastic! There is also a wonderful scenic walking path to the beach from the condo that takes about 15-20 minutes by lava tubes and ancient fish ponds. We would definitely recommend this condo to our friends and family!!😊
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and exploring the Big Island. The listing is accurate - it has everything I can imagine you would need. The Master bed was very comfortable, the kitchen well stocked, we enjoyed the beautiful patio and grill, beach items are available... Communication with owner was excellent and great tips on local surroundings. There were 5 us, 2 couples and a grandchild (16 months).
We stayed at this beautiful property for 8 days and it was amazing! The house was beautiful and very clean and it had everything you need! We walked to the beach, perfect lagoon for kids and cabanas were great!! The grocery store on the property is awesome it has everything from sushi to deli sandwiches and great wine selection. A very peaceful and fun vacation will stay here again and again.
Thank you Barbie!!
This condo provided the perfect vacation for the family. The unit is very clean and it so nice to have the snorkeling gear, boogie boards etc available. I really can’t think of anything that might make this place better. Owner communicates well and everything is well organized. The neighborhood beach is great for younger kids, and if you prefer to travel to a different location, you have everything you need available - chairs, umbrellas, coolers etc. We’re already planning to return to the big island next year. Hopefully this pace is available again. Thank you.
