We had three generations of family stay here and all of us loved it! The accommodations were clean and very comfortable (especially the beds). The location was perfect (close to beaches, shops, and restaurants) and the private pool and hot tub were a wonderful treat. We would absolutely stay here again.

It met all of our expectations...12 adults/kids. The pool/hot tub made all the difference. Great space. Well equipped. The Club was wonderful, we had our 50th anniversary dinner at Napua and we enjoyed the food/view/ambiance. Perfect location..putting green and garbage bins within 50 feet. The local pool/workout room was very nice as well.

There were 12 of us and the house is plenty big. The main room has tons of seating so we could all eat together. We had an 8 month old and they provided a high chair, pack and play, and monitor. It was very clean and stocked really well. Plenty of beach/pool towels, beach chairs, umbrellas, bath towels, soap, and even spices. The location was great. There is a private beach (not walking distance) and 2 other nice beaches within 10-15 minutes drive. The upstairs lanai overlooking the golf course was my favorite spot! The only down side with the location is all excursions were in Kona, a 40 minute drive and the baby didn’t like that! Our older kids had no problem with the drive. Shout out to Lava Java in Waikoloa Village where we had our last breakfast heading to the airport…they were fantastic!

We were a family of 5 children (age 3-12) and 6 adults that stayed here. The house was perfect for us in that everyone was able to sleep in a room, thus leaving the whole living area to enjoy at all times. The Lanai was a real treat to eat meals and we made great use of the well stocked kitchen and Lanai BBQ. The kids were able to swim in the very warm house pool, as well as the large resort pool which was just a short walk away. The house came well supplied with spare fins, snorkel equipment, bikes, and beach supplies for the excellent snorkeling at Mauna Lani beach. Communication with the host was easy, responsive, and convenient and they were able to accommodate our late check-out request, and since some had flights that didn't leave until 10pm, it was very much appreciated. For our families purposes, we could not have asked for a more ideal spot.

It was the perfect house for our family (6 adults and 4 teenagers). Great location. Best equipped kitchen ever. Loved having our own pool and hot tub. Plenty of room for everyone. Would highly recommend this house.

This house exceeded our expectations. It is actually better than the listing. We have had the opposite happen many times. This was the most well provisioned house we have ever stayed in. They had everything for the kitchen from aluminum foil to a rolling pin and whisk. The beach supplies were also abundant. We enjoyed the private beach and club access that is included with the property. This property is a gem and I highly recommend.

The house had great amenities - everything from a kitchen with anything you would need to make meals, to gas grill, bikes, beach chairs, beach towels and the list goes on. The house was comfortable, clean, and had a great view from the deck. The family loved the pool and hot tub and the Beach Club was only a few miles away with a wonderful protected bay for swimming in the ocean. The property managers were very responsive to questions. A heads up about a few items: 1) The doors sometimes appear to be closed but aren't. You need to push them tightly shut to make sure the air conditioner doesn't shut off. 2) If you have adult children coming from a lot of directions, the property only has parking for a maximum of four cars. 3) If you want to rent a Golf Cart, I would highly recommend Resort Carts. Really a great house for a family vacation. There were not any negatives to this house.

When you first walk up the stairs into the house, it is just wow! This is a lovely house with everything you need to have a great time on the Big Island. We enjoyed access to the private beach club and then being able to jump into the private pool. The view of the sunset on the lanai was not bad either. What really impressed us was the quick response from property management (before and during our stay). When we felt the AC was not working correctly, they sent someone out within 5 minutes! We definitely recommend staying here, but keep good care of the house cause we want to come back again :-). Mahalo, PIH!

My family of 9 fit comfortable in this home. Close to all amenities for groceries, dinner, and there are beaches galore close!! 30 min from Kona. We loved the kitchen where we prepared daily meals and a large table to enjoy them. My adult children shared a room with their significant others, my mother in law had her own room, my sister and her son shared a king and my husband and I had the Master. When we arrived there was a wasp nest and I called and within minutes someone was here taking care of it! They were amazing. We enjoyed the heated spa and pool and all the toys. The only complaint I would have is it needed a good deep cleaning as there was lots of sand under the area rugs and a film on the floors. (Sand is impossible) We needed the pull out bed and when it was pulled out it had sand inside. (Where isn’t sand)We changed the sheets and there were lots of extra blankets and sheets to accommodate. We used the cooler, chairs and umbrella at the beach. All in all was a fabulous and comfortable trip from this momma of 6.

Our stay at House of Joy was fantastic. The house met our needs, the pool was FANTASTIC (especially for little bugs just learning to swim), the kitchen is huge and allows for cooking with a large group, and the rental agency was so superb and easy with whom to communicate. We highly recommend.

Easy, super relaxing.

12 members of my family stayed for a week over Christmas. We loved the backyard heated pool and jacuzzi, especially because the community pools were really cold. Since we were such a large group, we ate all our meals at the house. We even cooked turkey with all the trimmings for Christmas, in the well equipped kitchen. We had a few issues at check in and the property managers responded quickly. The location is perfect. We went to Mauna Lani Beach to snorkel several times, boogie boarded at Hapuna Beach, did a hike near Puuhonua o Honaunau (City of Refuge), and hiked into Polulu Valley past Hawi. It was a perfect fit for our family and a great stay!

This is a beautiful place to stay. Large common spaces, and plenty of sleeping options kept our group of 10 happy. The kids loved having our own swimming pool, and the community pool was popular, too.

House of Joy was nothing short of amazing! It fit our large group of 12 perfectly. It never felt crowded and everyone always had their own space. The kids loved the heated pool and opened the mornings and closed out the days in it. We saw some of the most amazing sunsets from the back deck/balcony. The facilities in KaMilo were also wonderful. Had a couple pool days there and felt like we had the whole place to ourselves most of the time. And let’s talk about Mauna Lani! What an unexpected surprise! I had never heard of the resort before and when I booked House of Joy I had no idea that it was in the middle of such an epic spot. The private beach club is a must, lots of shops and restaurants, and a super convenient grocery store were right up the street from the house. Oh, and don’t miss the Queens Bath located in the fishing ponds ;-) We also rented a golf cart through Resort Carts. I highly recommend this! Such a fun way to get around every square inch of Mauna Lani. All in all it was the most wonderful family vacation and I speak on behalf of my entire party when I say that we highly recommend House of Joy in Mauna Lani for your next family vacation!!

Perfect house for our family of 10! We enjoyed the private pool and hot tub, private beach access and location on a golf course. Everyone was happy!

Peaceful and lovely. The place is clean and well taken care of. Perfect place to rest and relax or an amazing home base for adventuring since it's close to everything.

Thank you Jeff and Suzanne and the Paradise in Hawaii Group! We had the most amazing stay at the House Of Joy. We have been renting homes for years for vacation purposes and this home was by far the best one. The House of Joy was stocked so well with all that you would ever need. I can't say enough about the cleanliness of this home. I was comfortable from the minute I walked in. The details matter and this home was stocked with quality, from the dishes to the linens nothing is left out. I have never stayed at a rental home that thought of everything from cooking to playing on the beach. All our needs were met. This is our first trip to the Big Island and we will be back. We loved every minute! The area this home is located in is a terrific resort area with access to a private beach area that we loved. We snorkeled often thanks to the equipment provided in the garage. I have already told many friends and family members about our stay. I would recommend this home to anyone. Simply put: it was amazing from the beautiful home, the service provided and wonderful island. Thank you again Jeff and Suzanne and all the Paradise In Hawaii Staff. Well done!

We highly recommend this beautiful location and view. As soon as we entered we noticed the nice touches this location provided, Book of Hawaii (very detailed), multiple clean beach towels, a bag of Kona coffee, the VIEW, and being so clean and well maintained! Kitchen had all the items you needed. The location was close enough to walk to the Fairmont for breakfast and dinner (very good). The beach chairs and snorkeling equipment at the house were perfect for Wailea Beach and Hapuna Beach. Pololu lookout was worth the climb down/up as was Akala Falls. We look forward to coming back again to the House of Joy! Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
