Brought to you by Paradise in Hawaii Luxury Homes.

Welcome to Starfish House, a part of our Hawaiian Luxury Collection. The owners are the same as that of Sea Glass House at KaMilo which is one of our most elegant homes. Like Sea Glass and its best location in KaMilo, Starfish has the best location and views in Kulalani. The home is in new and overlooks the golf green and a massive pond on the Mauna Lani north course. From the wrap around porch you can watch the Hawaiian wildlife visit the pond including herds of goats (baby goats are so cute) and lots of magnificent birds. This is a bird watchers paradise.

This model is the larger Kulalani 3 bedroom in the fourplex which sports a large living room with lanai/patio windows on two walls to open up the entire living room to the outdoors. The covered lanai wraps around the living room providing lots of afternoon shade. The home also sports a private large double garage meaning there is no concern about parking.

Starfish House provides a perfect setting for your Hawaii getaway and is designed for large groups of up to 8 people. It is a sophisticated, inviting, welcoming, relaxing luxurious home for your Hawaiian vacation.

Fast WiFi with great coverage included!

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

The living room features a 65" Ultra HD 4K TV.

The private grill is perfect for bringing home the fresh catch of the day or veggies from one of the many farmers markets.

Each of the three lanais are 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.

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

Things to do:

Staying in Kulalani gives you full access to its Recreation Center with fitness equipment and multiple hot tubs and lap pool, free form pool and kiddie pool.

A short drive away are the six (6) of the most spectacular beaches in Hawaii including Beach 69, Hapuna 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 Mauna Lani where you can find super-market, coffee shops, restaurants, clothing and accessory stores, art, and free weekly entertainment in the evenings.

For larger groups ask us about renting homes next door / across the street so the entire group can all stay near each other.

We have just spent a great week at the Coconut Telegraph house in the Mauna Lani resort and could not be happier with our experience. Our group of six enjoyed a great week together and included myself and my wife with our two adult daughters and grandson as well as the BFF of one of our daughters. There was plenty of room for our group to spread out and sleeping arrangements were easy. With a bathroom for each bedroom there was no waiting for showers, etc. The kitchen was well supplied with cooking utensils and dishes, so meal prep was easy. We used the outside grill several times as well. Eating out on the lanai was very pleasant as was just relaxing outside. Sitting outside in the morning listening to the many birds and having coffee is something that we miss now. There was easy access to several beautiful beaches which we took advantage of and the beach equipment that was in the garage was helpful. We enjoyed visiting the volcano and recommend a visit to the Greenwell Farms coffee farm to see how Kona coffee is grown and processed. We were also able to go whale watching, watch manta rays feed in the ocean at night, and our daughters took surfing lessons. The fitness facility and pools were also easy to access, very well equipped and enjoyed by our family. Overall this is a great property and we highly recommend it.

We booked Starfish house after seeing the beautiful pictures on line and, upon arrival, it did not disappoint!!! We were in need of sleeping for 8 and the beds were incredibly comfortable. Our party of 4 couples were able to make full meals with the high quality appliances and well-stocked dish and drink ware.. This trip meant a lot to all of us for many reasons and the Starfish house was the perfect host. Thank you so much for making your beautiful home available to our family.

The house was stunning and had a perfect location at the end of the development. More than enough room for 4 adults and 2 children (including grandparents). We loved our time here and loved the views out the huge glass windows on the lower floor, and the privacy by it bordering the golf course. Only minor issue we had was curtains breaking and not being addressed, and a flat tire on the kids bike that they never had someone come out to look at, despite being responsive to our request. I would love to stay here again though!

Beautiful property, exactly as described. Quiet neighborhood, which was great for us. Close enough to Fairmont Orchid to walk easily for a conference. Pool area was very nice. Access to beach club was a plus. Many toys in the garage- were wonderful to use. Large main bedroom with walkin closet and spacious bath. Great communication with hosts, excellent information about the unit. Views are golf course and mountains. Kitchen was very well appointed. Few little items were not ideal. Could not figure out some of the fans and could not get them to do anything other than very fast. Outdoor grill was used a lot and a very nice feature- but cooked very hot. Easy to adjust to once we knew that.

This is a very nice home, very comfortable and the lanai with the view over the golf course is beautiful. We took full advantage of that, taking in the sunrise every morning with all the bird calls. Does sleep eight (comfortable beds!) but it required sharing the large master bath (off the very nice large master bedroom) with some of our daughters in order to make the two full baths work when all of us were getting ready to go out at the same time, but that was a workable solution. Large water heater and so there was never an issue with the hot water supply. Parking the second car was no hassle really, with a spot at the next unit over. The garage is for two cars but with all the outdoor gear they provide, there is really only room for one car. Close to a small grocery store, easily walkable. Used going4groceries.com for our initial needs in order to avoid that stop after a long flight (property management provides them with a temporary access code to deliver the groceries ahead of your arrival). Well equipped kitchen with a lot of small appliances to use and plenty of dishes. Short walk to a nice pool with separate lap pool and workout room. The access to the beach at Mauna Lani is a bonus and has good snorkeling water, where we were able to swim with and observe some beautiful/interesting fish. Depending on how far out you went within the resort’s mapped area, the water was up to 20’ deep. Responsive local property management. Two virtually new adult bikes were delivered same day that we pointed out that two of the bikes provided were out of commission for various reasons.

This was a very nice property. Would highly recommend the Mauna Lani area as a base for seeing the island. Nice associated facilities. Foodland and some shops are short walk or minutes-drive always. Adjacent resort shopping less than 10 minutes drive away. Hapuna Beach (Conde Nast #1) is less than 10 minutes away, gorgeous. The resort private beach and various walkable shore areas and sights and are quite nice too. The management are responsive to needs.

We had a great time here it is a beautiful home. The kitchen had everything we needed and we cooked at hone every day. The owners were very thoughtful and provided sporting equipment and bicycles. The beach club has excellent snorkeling and a relaxed atmosphere. We liked the proximity to the grocery. The TV’s worked great. The view from the lanai was gorgeous and we saw many birds. The only downside was the early check out at 10 am. We thought we would be able to hang around at the pool for a few hours as our flights were in the evening. This is standard at most hotels. The pool attendant asked us to leave the premises because we did not have our room key. The facility should provide guest passes for departure days. It really left us feeling sour after a great vacation. We also could not find any information on the bicycle cart that was shared by the complex. Some in our party were enthusiastic about using this but we couldn’t find anyone who knew anything about it.

Note: Vacancy calendar is approximate. Visit the owner/manager's reservation site to verify your dates.
