Our stay here was excellent! The villa is beautiful and the amenities perfect. Great, easy and immediate communication with the owner and managers if needed. Couldn’t ask for a better place to stay!
The home is magnificent on all levels. Great location, layout and appointments. Spectacular ocean view. Conducive for family conversations, laughter and lasting memories. Simply beautiful. Equally impressive, and in my opinion important, are the hosts. Karen and Steve are anxious to please, responsive to our questions and concerns and abundantly kind. Too, their on island management team shares like qualities. The home, the process, the hosts and the on island management team are the epitome of “Aloha Spirit .” We are anxious to return.
Absolutely perfect in all ways- beautifully situated, kitchen top notch-everything you could possibly desire in a rental.
We’ve stayed in houses all over the Hawaiian islands, but this was one of our favorites! Thanks to Tiva and David for making our stay comfortable and memorable!
We have been coming to the Mauna Kea for years and recently began renting homes on the property. This house was perfect for our family get together, well situated and well setup. It had everything we needed to cook & dine in as well as go to the beach or enjoy the pool. The managers and owners were very helpful and responsive. We would stay here again.
The property is wonderful and well-appointed. Absolutley relaxing and enjoyable. Access to the resort amenities was great. My young children and elderly parents each found the home to be easy to use and incredibly comfortable. The owners are clearly interested in seeing that their guests feel right at home. The kitchen is well stocked and has all the things you'd need to prepare a quick breakfast or a bountiful dinner. They even had ziploc bags and Tupperware which we used to prepare snacks for the car as we ventured around the island. Certainly hope to return someday as it was such a deeply relaxing stay. There were good instructions for using the spa heater, and tv equipment making it very easy to be absolutely comfortable. The kids loved having boogie boards available to them for the beach, and the cooler was very handy. Wow, setting the bar high.
They also processed the refund of the deposit swiftly. So wonderful. Thank you Karen and Steve for sharing your lovely property with us, you've contributed to some priceless memories for our family.
From the moment we booked, I knew we had the perfect spot for our family . The owners went above and beyond to help answer all of our questions and prepare us for our visit to the perfection of the big island . We will be back! Mahalo!
We stayed at this beautiful villa from June 30th to July 6th 2022. The experience was amazing.
The owners, Steve and Karen, were very responsive to any questions I had before we arrived. I was taking my bike with me from the mainland and they organized with the Housekeeper to let me put it in the Garage before we checked in! This was not the case with the second house we rented, from Jul 6th Jul12th. They let me keep it again in the Garage during the transition period. Massive help!
The house was immaculate with everything you would need. The sunset views are spectacular and the location in the Hapuna /Mauna Kea resort is beautiful, though you will need a car. We paid extra access to the Mauna Kea /Hapuna resort facilities, well worth it.
Added to this the Housekeepers, Tina and her husband, are phenomenal. They are the nicest people I have ever met. Nothing was too big an ask for them. They accomodated my bike requests, gave info on where to buy food and places to visit. Consistently above and beyond service!
Added to this, when we truly needed them they were there for us. The AC unit fan broke one night and they took care of it immediately (along with homeowner) and it was fixed the next day. The level of serivce from them was oustanding. I have never experienced the Aloha Spirit before, until I met Tina and her husband. I am very grateful to have met them!
The only negative thing I can say is that I wish I could have spent my full 12 days at the villa and not have to move to the 2nd house. This is how much my family and I enjoyed it.
Thanks again Karen and Tina, we had a wonderful time!
This was the nicest property we have rented through VRBO. The owners and property managers were great to work with and very helpful. The home was perfect for our family of 6 adults and can sleep more. The Hawaii sunset views are fantastic and the private pool and spa made our stay even more special. We highly recommend this property.
Everything was perfect. Amazing house with amazing management.
We had an absolutely wonderful stay!! The property was exactly as advertised. Karen and Steve were great hosts and Tiva the property manager checked in to make sure everything was good. A little pricey but we’ll worth it. We would stay again!
The property was excellent and the amenities were great. Most importantly, Karen and Steve went out of way to help us when one family member tested positive for Covid on the last day of our stay.
We had an amazing stay at this stunning home. Loved the open air setting and having a small pool and hot tub was great for the kids at the end of the day. Owners were awesome, quickly addressing any concerns and going above and beyond.
This house is AMAZING! Plenty of room for everyone, beautiful backyard with gorgeous view. Close to so many great beaches, snorkeling, swimming and hiking. House was very well stocked in kitchen, everything we needed. Would definitely return to this house.
We enjoyed our weeklong stay in this lovely villa. Everything was as described. Lots of beach toys available for use. Grilling dinner outside is a must. My daughter, a gourmet cook, loved cooking in the well equipped kitchen that even has a rice cooker.
Very well appointed. Great Views
This property in Wai'ula'ula has everything you could wish for in a Hawaii vacation home. Spacious room, a super equipped kitchen, large lanai, your own pool and spa. This is our second visit, and we will be back!
This has been our third stay at this amazing sanctuary at our favorite Hawaiian island. This time we brought my in-laws to celebrate two big birthdays and a long overdue time to reconnect with three generations. They were blown away with how well appointed the house was and our whole family couldn't get enough of the pool just as they had the last two times.
We look forward to visiting again and rekindling our Aloha spirit. Mahalo Karen and Steve!
super property came fully equipped for an enjoyable week. lovely views, minutes to golf, tennis and gorgeous beaches. would definitely book again. highly recommend
We have been to the Mauna Kea Beach area many times, and stayed at various condos and hotels. The Wai’UlaUla development is one of our favorites due to its proximity and access to the Mauna Kea property and private beaxh
This was our family’s first vacation on the Big Island of Hawaii. Karen and Steve were awesome. They made the process of renting super easy and answered all of our questions before we even arrived. Their home was spectacular and met all of our needs. It’s like going to a 5 ⭐️hotel but better. It is very luxurious. Tons of room to spread out. A great family room/kitchen to hang out for family time. If you want to prepare your meals, the kitchen has all the high end amenities to do so easily, which we did a lot. The location is gorgeous, with sunsets every night. Your own hot tub and small swimming pool. And close enough to Kona and the Westin and Mauna Kea Resorts to find great restaurants and beaches. We traveled all over the island and it was a great location for that. We bought the Mauna Kea Resort Package which made it super easy to go to the beach, use the resorts chairs, umbrellas and towels. This made it easy being our first time. However, since we did a lot of sightseeing we didn’t use the benefits of the resort package everyday. Karen and Steve’s place is so close to the beaches and they have beach chairs, boogie boards etc. that it would be easy to use the public beaches and have a great time. Bottom line it is all that is advertised to be and the only disappointment will be that your vacation will be way too short. We will be back. Thanks to Karen snd Steve.
Before I mention the property, I want to give a shout out to Kelly the owner. She was always quick (I don't think I ever had to wait more than an hour and usually it was less than five minutes) to reply to my questions and she was very helpful. As for the home, we absolutely loved this property. The rooms are very spacious, the home is exceptionally clean and the amenities are abundant. The kitchen is so well stocked that there were items in there that we don't even have at home. There were plenty of water and beach chairs/toys/towels for our use as well. I've saved the best for last... the view! From sunrise to sunset (and even stargazing at night), we sat on the back porch or dipped in the pool while looking out over the beautiful Pacific as the colors changed from blues to greens to pinks, oranges, yellows, and reds. It is amazing! The only negative about this place is that eventually you have to go home. Thanks for the great stay.
Beautiful home, all as advertised! I see why Karen and Steve are premier hosts. Well organized, very knowledgeable about the island and great communicators. You will not go wrong with this home and location! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
We enjoyed our stay here. Wish we had booked this for a longer stay. Would definitely stay again. House was very well appointed and the view was incredible.
Thank you, Steve and Karen for the use of your lovely home. It was meticulously clean and organized, which we really respect. The views were amazing and sunsets stunning. We had such a lovely time with our family. I hope to come again! Mahalo!
Literally everything about our stay was wonderful. The house was beautiful - the kitchen well stocked, plenty of room for the 5 adults to have their own space (all 3 Bedrooms even had their own bathroom) but to also come back together for meals and hanging out. Loved that we had access to the Hapuna Beach and Mauna Kea resorts as well as the pool and gym at the local community center that was part of the complex. For us, the location was perfect - easy access to many restaurants in Waimea and minutes from the beach, pool and fitness center at the resorts. I can't think of anything I would change. Just lovely.
