We enjoyed our time in this unit. There were three good sized rooms that was perfect for 5 of us. The beds were a little hard but that is personally preference. The kitchen was well stocked and we used both the rice cooker and slow cooker. The view was lovely and we enjoyed out time on the Lanai. The Mauna Lani are was great and we liked this area and close proximity to Foodland. I would rent this unit again.

We had a horrible experience staying at this condo in August. There was a strong mold odor emanating from behind the washing machine that permeated two of the three bedrooms. The noxious smell gave us headaches and prevented us from sleeping. (There is no door to the laundry area.). When we used the water in the bathroom across the hall, we could hear water rapidly dripping in the wall behind the washing machine. We called the property manager and left a VM to report the water leak and mold odor. After receiving no response, I called the owner. The owner was extremely argumentative, admitted that he was aware of the water dripping but insisted there was no mold, despite the noxious odor. He told me the property manager was too busy to meet us at the unit and refused to refund the remainder of our 7-day stay. Out of concern for our family's health, we scrambled to find another condo for the remainder of our vacation. Thankfully, we found another unit (and it was lovely, so we were able to salvage our trip). Although we stayed in this condo for less than 24 hours, the owner continued to send rude texts for the remainder of the week. I reached out to VRBO for assistance in obtaining a refund for the condo being uninhabitable, provided a video of the dripping water, and they reached out to the owner to request he issue a refund for the unused portion of our stay, but the owner still refused. We will need to file a lawsuit. Save yourself a headache and avoid this place.

Very comfortable and functional accommodations close to everything. Unit was clean and nicely decorated. Had a small hiccup with the AC, but the property management came out right away to fix it. The pool is nearby and was very nice. 10 minute walk to the beach along a nice path through lava field and fish ponds (15ish with a 4 year old). Foodland and shops right nearby. Beach gear in the garage, nicely stocked kitchen, BBQ grill worked great, fans in the rooms and good AC to keep cool. Garage comfortably fit a four door Jeep without any fuss. Did not hear any of our neighbors and the neighbors below said they did not hear us, so that was nice. Middle bedroom was absolutely perfect for our four year old with the twin and additional slide out mattress. Master bathroom is a little small/tight. If you're on the taller side, be careful not to knock down the pictures on the wall when standing up! (Sorry again) Would definitely stay again.

Such a homey place. You can tell the family to owns the place truly love it. It's in such nice shape and comfortable. Everything you need and then some. This is our 4th unit at Palm Villas and it's one of the best. Staying in this unit with the view of the lava reserve is SO calming. We always dream of the moments we spend just quiet and relaxed on the lanai. Thank you for the perfect Hawaiian time

The property was even better than described. It was very clean (one of my most important criteria), was well stocked with useful items, and was beautiful. Mahalo, David, for your hospitality!

We love going to the Palm Villas, overlooking the lava. This unit is large, clean and has the amenities we look for. Access to the beach club with the swimming and snorkeling there is the way to go!

Palm Villas E-21 sits on the edge of a nature reserve with gorgeous sunset skies that silhouette the numerous palm trees that surround the ancient Hawaiian fishponds which are only a 7 minute walk away along the nearby pedestrian friendly paved trail - from dawn to sunset, the air is filled with joyous birdsong of the various bird species that live in and frequent the nature reserve -- another 5 minute walk beyond the fishponds is the fabulous and lifeguarded Mauna Lani Beach Club - gorgeous turquoise water safe for swimmers and snorkelers of all ages and skills -- the condo is professionally maintained with updated modern appliances and well stocked kitchen utensils -- the mattresses in all three bedrooms are very comfortable -- David is a very responsive and attentive host and his property management team , Karlynne and Zach, couldn't be more professional and welcoming -- the swimming pool in Palm Villas, which has a small and refreshing waterfall, is surrounding by a lush and mature tropical garden with plenty of shade for quiet outdoor afternoon reading -- Palm Villas is a tranquil and beautiful property to call home while visiting the Big Island -- we cannot wait to return next year

The condo was perfect for our group of 6. It was so easy to load up the provided beach gear ( loved having the wagon), drive just a few minutes and be at a wonderful beach. The nearby beach is calm and great for snorkeling. The condo had everything we needed. Our kids loved to walk around the complex daily to check on all the fruit trees. As a great bonus we had a perfect view of fireworks at the Mauna Lani resort on New Years Eve.

We stayed for then entire month of November and really enjoyed everything about the area and this unit. The unit is very well equipped in the kitchen, bathrooms and everything you need for visits to the beach. We became members at the fitness facility next door and our group used the facility every day. The gym included peleton bikes and the swimmers used the lap pool. Tennis and pickleball were favourites and we were able to participate in a pickleball tournament. Great active vacation for all. Thanks David for the use of your place. It’s wonderful.

We had a great stay here. The walks across lava fields, past fish ponds to a protected beach cove was the highlight. Beach equipment at David’s condo was a plus which allowed us to grab and go. All other necessary amenities were stocked and available. We all agreed we’d love to return.

The property is great. It has all of the things you need for a comfortable stay and aside from the amenities (e.g. beach gear, pool access, beach access, etc.), the owners have done a great job puttingg together some resources and tips for your stay (e.g. best grocery spots, best beaches, places to eat, etc.). The location was great for us being an hour from Hilo, close to the best beaches, easy driving distance to Kailua, and quick access to plenty of dining and grocery options. The owner’s beach turned out to be one of our favorite spots to hang out. It has sand and mellow waters for kids, plenty of shade, small crowds while we were there, and if you swim out a ways, great snorkeling. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and look forward to the next one. Thanks, Matt

Thank you David for letting us stay in your beautiful vacation home/condo. Layout is perfect 3beds-2baths with Lanai and bbq grill. We did our morning breakfasts and dinners at the lanai and we will miss it. Washer and dryer a definite plus. We will miss the morning walks from the lava park, koi ponds to the beach. We did our morning walks to Fairmont Orchid hotel, Mauna Lani Auberge Resort, and Beach Club- and it was a great experience walking in the coast(beach) Access to beach club was a plus. Good area to snorkel. Close to Hapuna beach (4miles) named one of the most beautiful beaches in the Big Island- has good waves and perfect for boogie boarding. Kitchen equipment was very good. Rice cooker, slow cooker, blender and toaster and more… They have coolers that you can use (small, medium, large, and larger) Beach gear was awesome - chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, beach toys for young kids and cart to haul our beach gear. Snorkeling gear was also available but we brought our own. I definitely recommend this unit if you are planning on staying at the Mauna Lani area. David and Karlynne were both responsive to our inquiries. Thank you so much! Highly recommend! Mahalo!

The condo was in a great location and very well stocked for snorkeling and boogie boarding on the nearby beaches. It was comfortable for a group of five and the condo itself is well kept up and in excellent condition. The owner was incredibly responsive to any questions.

My wife and I stayed at the 3 bedroom condo at Mauna Lani Palm Villas for two weeks in January. Everything was very up to date, well appointed, equipped and and clean. The check in and interaction with the management company was efficient and uneventful. Palm Villas is older than some of the other developments such as the Fairways, and a little dated. We did not realize when we reserved that the unit was on the 2nd floor with another condo below us. This was not a problem for us at any time, but did make us a little more self conscious about conducting early morning business back on the east coast. Palm Villas is well maintained, has a beautiful pool and closer to the beach and shopping center. We always stay at Mauna Lani when in Hawaii and enjoyed ourselves very much at Palm Villas and this unit.

We enjoyed our stay and found the property to match the description on VRBO. Swimming pool and exercise room were compact but very useable and never overcrowded. Only complaints were poorly functioning TV's and non functioning garage door control. We do recommend it.

My husband, teenage daughter and I had a fabulous Christmas at David's Palm Villas condo. The location was excellent, a short walk across a lava field and past fish ponds to the beach. The complex was amazing with a beautiful swimming pool and gardens. The condo was well appointed and had a nice view. David was attentive and check-in/out was smooth. We'll definitely book another stay here.

Nice place. Great location. Lots to do in the area. The unit was great. Had fun with the toys in the garage. The beds were too firm. But otherwise it was great.

We had a wonderful visit to Mauna Lani! The condo was clean, comfortable and well stocked. The location was very convenient to a grocery and some restaurants as well as a 10 min (scenic!) walk to both the private beach and to the Auberge hotel (lovely for sunsets). The owner was also incredibly responsive and helpful when we needed a new parking pass. We’d stay again in a heartbeat.

Best decorated and stocked unit in the complex! Other people staying in different units kept telling us ours was better and they wanted to stay in this unit next time. The kitchen was very stocked with dishes, utensils, everything you would have at home. Great Pool and hot tub! Great bbq on the deck to our unit. Great location! Nice hike to the ocean straight from the complex. Definitely NOT a place to stay if you are noisy. Very nice and quiet complex.

Had a great stay! The area was very nice and safe. I was working remotely, so having the desk in the main bedroom was nice. I also stood a good bit at the kitchen island and worked on my laptop. Having drivable access to the “Owner’s Beach” was convenient and I even took a meeting on the beach. (This beach was the most crowded beach I encountered on my 3+ week trip around the Big Island but I had no concerns about the amount of people there).

The condo was great for enjoying Mauna Lani. We love the snorkeling as well as the walking trails there. The condo was quiet and felt private. We also enjoyed the pool and jacuzzi.

First time not being in a hotel in HI…loved the feeling of living here, even if it was only for a week. Having stayed at Mauna Lani in the past, I love the neighborhood- love the beach we have access to, love the roads and paths to walk and run on, love the restaurants and stores nearby. Waikoloa and Waimea neighborhoods are close enough to enjoy those markets and restaurants. So nice to have the beach gear provided by the owner- we used the beach towels, chairs, umbrella, coolers and ice packs. There is all the other stuff as seen in the pics. We rented a GMC traverse and it just fit in the one car garage so don’t go bigger than that! The owner was quick to respond in the booking process and during the trip (no issues- was asking where they had bought something I saw in the condo). Felt so lucky to be able to enjoy their vacation home.
