This property was great. Very functional for 10 people. Was nice to have two master bedrooms. Would definitely stay here again.



September 2023
Great place. Location a little isolated from lots of other places but very nice if you don’t want to travel to southern part of the island. Distance to anywhere outside the immediate village was at least 30 minutes. One must understand this is the BIG island. Shortcomings: snorkel gear was either broken or is disarray and except for one adult set was basically unusable. When alerted, the property manager did bring one new adult set and two sets for small children. Didn’t really help us much as we had 8 adults and 2 teens, both of whom were larger than some adults. The bicycles had flat tires except for one. When alerted, the property manager came and pumped up the tires of the one good bike, leaving the other two flat. Tip for the next travelers: If something isn’t working or is broken, alert manager immediately. That way you can at least enjoy the equipment while there. We waited, and by the time we alerted the manager, we lost out because the hurricane winds closed all the beaches. All things considered, we enjoyed the island, enjoyed the sights and national parks, and marveled at the difference in rugged beauty from the other islands we’ve visited. Just know, this island isn’t like the others. The beaches are small, rockier, and therefore crowded.

We came with all 19 of us, children and grandchildren, and booked two houses. They are the same floor plan, very family friendly! They are clean and well stocked-port a crib, high chair, toiletries, spices and cookware! The sand castle villa even has a motorized spit for the grill to roast pineapple (it was delicious!) We realized on our first day, a Sunday, that the washing machine in one of the homes wasn’t working, so I texted the management company and they sent someone out that day. When they said the washer couldn’t be fixed, they offered us the use of an empty property until it could be replaced. They came out and replaced it the next day! They responded quickly to every question or request. The grounds are beautiful, the pools are nice, and the mauna lani beach club is perfect for the little kids, and awesome for snorkelers! We saw sharks, eels, octopus…honestly some of the best and easiest snorkeling I’ve done in Hawaii! And for the older kids, Hapuna beach is just a few minutes away, great for boogie boarding, body surfing, and jumping in the waves! Close to shopping and restaurants, far from the noise and crowds of downtown! We loved our stay and can’t wait to book again!

Wonderful location. Well-stocked with all the things you need - wagon, boogie boards, floaties and sand toys. They even have a monitor for our kids room. Nice, quiet location. The mauna lani beach club is amazing too.

House is centrally located to numerous outstanding golf courses. We played three courses in four days, and had a great time! Plenty of room at the house, well stocked with the basics, and tons of beach gear to borrow!

We enjoyed a family reunion at this wonder house. Five adults and 4 children and there was lots of privacy, with 2 master suites and 2 other bedrooms, all big and beautifully furnished. Very big kitchen with everything one needs for cooking, plus a great bbq grill right on the lanai. Kids had a blast going to the pool just a few steps away. Our vacation was wonderful and we will certainly recommend this home to others. We will be back!

We were traveling with 6 adults (3 couples) and two children. The set up was great! The layout of the bedrooms was great. The kids getting up didn't wake up everyone. The Beach Club was a great place for everyone. The young kids had a low wave shoreline. The adults could snorkel.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay! It was a beautiful house, property and location. The pool is right down the road and easy to get to. Rooms are large and it fit our party of 10 very comfortably. I appreciated the property management greeting us before our arrival and letting us know they were "a text away" if we needed any help. We were short 3 beach towels for our party and they brought them within an hour of texting. (Great service!) The book of ideas to do while on the island was very helpful as well. The grill on the deck, extra propane bottle and beach gear in the garage was so handy for our large group as well! There was also plenty of kleenex, paper towels and toilet paper. We would definitely stay here again! The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star review was because: 1) The picture showed 6 bikes and we had 6 kids! However, there were only 4 bikes and we could not get two more even when we asked. 2) The carpets, baseboards, and couches could use a good shampoo/scrub down. For the most part, it was very clean. However the shower curtain in the bathroom downstairs was very dirty, bath mats could have been washed, and carpet shampooed. 3) The surrey bike was broken. Again, something that was in the pictures that we couldn't take advantage of. It was broken and they said the part was there, it just didn't get fixed in time to use it. I'm sure it will be ready for the next people that want to use it!

We are a large group now with 3 married kids and 1 grandchild. We wanted to get away to the island of Hawaii and comfortably stay all together. This was the perfect space for us - clean, nicely furnished, fully stocked kitchen since we like to cook, and a great neighborhood with pools and exercise room that our athletic kids used a lot. There were beach towels and chairs that we used every day and plenty of sand toys for our granddaughter. We would stay here again in a heartbeat!!

This is a great location, near many great beaches. The home was clean and very comfortable for our group of 10! Beach towels and chairs were a great addition and the the pool and common neighborhood area was fabulous. I would absolutely recommend this property.

The location of this property was perfect. Close to some very nice beaches, shopping and grocery stores. The pool was beautiful and only a short walk from the house. House came stocked with everything you need for the beach, including sand toys and plenty of towels. The kitchen was a little short on everyday supplies; like a cookie sheet, but overall, we had a great time. Beds were very comfortable and the layout of the house worked great for our group; 5 adults and 2 kids. Property managers responded quickly to needs / requests as well.

The Hawaiian Bliss house was perfect for two families. The amenities they provided such as bikes, snorkel gear, chairs and umbrellas came in handy daily for us. Very spacious to accommodate 9 of us. Community is beautiful and well kept up. Thank you for a great time!!
