This is the 3rd condo we’ve stayed at in the Kulalani complex because we love all of the amenities. Ralph and Priscilla were wonderful hosts and thought of all of our needs. The condo was well stocked and gave us what we needed to enjoy all the big island has to offer. I highly recommend this condo and would stay here again.
This is an amazing unit in a wonderful complex. Everything you could need is in this unit…beach towels and equipment, first aid supplies, and owner even left snacks out for our arrival! I especially enjoyed the island information Ralph left about the language! If I am lucky enough to return to Big Island I’m staying here again. My 3 adult kids 18-22 agree! Stop looking, stay here!
My family and I had a wonderful week at Ralph and Priscilla's house in Mana Launi. Ralph made everything so easy, and the house was amazing. Tons of space, all of the appliances we could possibly need, super comfortable beds with quality linens, and so nice to have all of the beach and snorkel gear there to use. We also loved the electric cart- easy to use and lots of fun! We made use of the Rec Center, the nearby and beautiful beach with access to great snorkeling, and the super close pools. We can't wait to return!
We enjoyed our stay, which included so many amenities: full kitchen, washer and dryer, beach gear, bikes, GEM cart, pool, fitness center, huge master bathroom, walk-in closet, parking (we only had to park across the way once), and much more. There may not be much of a view, but the trade-off is peace and privacy. As for shopping, dining, and groceries, there is a small market and the Tommy Bahama restaurant at the resort's small mall; however, your best bet is to drive a few miles south to the Waikoloa Resort. Detailed communication with the host was appreciated!
We stayed here on a recommendation of a friend who stayed there. It did not disappoint and great communication with Ralph. Very comfortable and plenty of space. Highly recommended!
This home was a great place to stay on the Big Island. The home was clean and very well maintained. The beach and pool access was close and the Gem Cart made getting around incredibly easy. Ralph communicated well with us and was always available to answer questions. We would definitely go back there in a heartbeat. Thanks for a great trip!
We have stayed in Mauna Lani a few times in some great condos, but this was our favourite! As a family of 4 with a 14 and 11 year old we had a blast. The kids used the bikes everyday, to and from the pool and the nearby shops. We loved the use of the golf cart, it was of excellent standard.
Ralph was super helpful and checked we had everything we needed. And the private beach is stunning. We hope to be back in 2 years time.
We’ve rented many condos and homes via VRBO and this is the BEST equipped, clean and well managed one we’ve stayed in! Extra towels, laundry/dish soap, paper towels, TP, coffee, GEM cart, etc. all appreciated. The kitchen and BBQ had everything we needed and we ate in daily.
In addition, the condo is spacious, light and bright! Very clean and well maintained. Thank you for making it available. We look forward to renting it again!
Enjoyed the home. It was clean and well maintained. Great amenities provided for the beach, pool and neighborhood. Ralph made some good recommendations for us on food, activities, etc. We had some plumbing issues (singing pipes at unfortunate hours) that owner tried to resolve while we were there, but still had some work to do at the time we left.
This property is a fantastic family getaway. The owner was fantastic to deal and the accommodations were wonderful. I would highly recommend them. The Gem cart was a great added bonus!
Good place, attentive property manager, delightful time. Access to the golf cart enhanced experience.
Beautiful condo, everything you need for a perfect stay, great communication with host, very clean and comfortable, will stay again
Everything with this property was perfect. The house is super clean. Has great quality fixtures. Ralph was very nice in his communication. And nothing was any trouble. We would love to return again.
A great stay all around. The GEM cart was a real plus for getting around allowing our group to split up to see different sites. Would definitely stay again.
We have been to the Big Island many times and, in particular, Mauna Lani area. The peace and quiet, convenient Beach Club and restaurants, and lovely rentals continue to draw us back. This time we really enjoyed the spacious townhome with well equipped kitchen. Traveling with adult children, it was nice to have the two bedrooms on opposite ends of the upstairs, each with a bath to use. As for toys, you couldn’t ask for more: umbrellas, chairs, cooler, boogie boards, bikes, and more. We hope to stay there again.
Check in and check out process was very smooth. Gem car, bikes and beach gears got a lot of use. Great experience!
Lovely townhome in a great location. About 25 min north of Kona and in a more exclusive community. Access to the private beach, two gyms and pools was fantastic. Use of the GEM cart was fun and great for zipping to the above as well as the local grocery store (Foodland), about 5 min away. The owner, Ralph, was great throughout the entire process - very responsive and helpful. If this place is open just trust me and book it!
The cleanliness of the house, the quiet location, the nice furnishings, the GEM EV vehicle, the wonderful supply of coffee, water toys…all contributed to a fabulous, relaxing holiday, thanks to the hosts.
Condo is beautifully appointed. Everything you need for a holiday at the beach…bikes to ride, snorkel gear, and a GEM vehicle to get you there! Wonderful two weeks with family and friends.
Beautiful Mauna Lani home, quiet and peaceful, easy access to all the amenities, Ralph was great to work with and the Gem Cart was the icing on the cake, we highly recommend, this home and we will be back! Mahalo Ralph
We had a wonderful time at Ralph's condo. The unit is very nice, clean and especially Ralph provide us all and lots supplies like detergent, shampoo, conditioner, body wash and others… We love the condo having pots, pan and other kitchen tools …. We prepared most of our meals in condo every day. There are 4 bicycles in the unit and we enjoyed biking. There are many things Ralph provided for us. We like this unit lots comparing to 3 previous units we stayed in Kulalani in the past. It was very easy to contact Ralph and he responded to me very fasttttt….We definitely stay at Ralph condo if it is still available when we come back to Hawaii island in the future. Thank you for everything Ralph!
Absolutely stellar stay. Ralph and his partner were great, ensuring the condo had everything you could possibly need on vacation. Would return!
Ralph has an excellent rental. He is meticulous and it is reflected in this condo. Great location with lots of amenities including two pools/hot tub on location and access to tennis facility. However, the golf cart was the icing on the cake. We use the cart every day for shopping or to take us to a very nice private beach. I have traveled and rented many places and this was one of the best rentals.
Ralph and Priscilla were excellent hosts and their property is beautiful. We wish we stayed longer! Ralph was incredibly responsive.
They even gave us some much appreciated local snacks and leis with a handwritten note for our honeymoon.
The GEM cart was great to go to private beaches. Snorkel gear and beach equipment were huge a huge plus! So many other amenities it's hard to list. Wonderful upscale restaurants nearby. Amazing safe snorkeling nearby as well.
Thanks for a wonderful stay!
We had a great time visiting the Big Island and staying in Ralph and Priscilla’s condo was a perfect setup for us. The condo was in very good condition and was located in a nicely maintained complex. The kitchen was well equipped and served well for us. The bedrooms, the living room and both the lanai areas were all nicely decorated and made our stay very comfortable. The garage was large enough for our car to be parked although we mostly left it in the guest parking lot. The garage had bicycles and all beach equipment one could ever need for having a pleasant time on the beach. There were well labeled keys and pass cards provided for the condo as well as the public areas we had access to. Ralph was the perfect host and he provided timely and great information in all communication we had with him. He even had a welcome call with us when we first arrived that made the visit feel very personalized. Especially learning about the Makaiwa Bay beach as the snorkeling there was a good as we experienced on the boat trips we went on. I’d highly recommend Ralph and Priscilla’s condo for anyone planning a trip to the Big Island and we will definitely try to stay there again in the future.

This was the best VRBO unit we have experienced. The house is very nice, updated, nice bikes, all the beach equipment needed, great resort area with two gyms, and close to several nice sandy beaches. This was a great experience and we would definitely do it again.
The Gem car, beach accessories, bikes, fitness center access and location made this a fantastic stay for our family (13 & 16 year old boys). The unit was stocked with everything needed for a comfortable stay, we made ourselves right at home. We really just had to show up and add our personal touches.
Ralph was very accommodating and responsive to all inquiries. Details were very clear and easy to understand. If you are considering this rental know you are in great hands.
We stayed for a week and the villa was fantastic for our family. It was very well equipped with everything you would need, from cooking utensils to beach gear. The private beach is wonderful and Ralph was very helpful. We would definitely stay at this location again.
What a wonderful place to stay while visiting Kona. The unit has everything you would need and more. Everything is very clean and well cared for. I would highly recommend this unit for anyone looking for a stay in the Kona area.
The property was as described. Beautiful neighborhood/resort. We really enjoyed exploring the beach just north of the townhome.
We love Mauna Lani! The beach is perfect and we loved the tennis courts. This place was thoughtfully stocked with bikes, sand toys, boogie boards and snorkel gear. Place felt clean and comfortable. Ralph was a great host. We appreciated things like defogger for snorkel masks, sunblock, variety of spices, cooking oil. Just the little things that make this place a winner. We will be back! Highly recommended.
This townhouse is extremely clean, organized, and ready for guests! Ralph has left you you everything you can think of for a great vacation (beach chairs, coolers, snorkel equipment, etc). Everything is labeled with directions and reminders. The location is also wonderful. Private access to the pool and beach is a great perk. We especially enjoyed riding the golf cart to get places. We will definitely stay here again! This property is definitely a FIVE STAR.
Large, clean and in great quiet location.
The condo is well kept and nicely decorated with a well supplied kitchen. Lots of beach toys and bikes and everything you need to have fun in the sun! We had a great stay and Ralph was an awesome host - calling the evening we arrived to fill me in on some details. We enjoyed the access to the Beach Club and Tennis Club as well. Very quiet area for a relaxing vacation.
Ralph was an excellent host! Very communicative and prompt in his responses. His home was lovely. It was so convenient to have the GEM available to drive around the resort. We had access to the Mauna Lani resort and so many additional amenities. It was a perfect lodging for my family.
We had a fantastic stay at Ralph’s place!
Very well equipped with beach stuff etc. love the gym, tennis and private beach access. ( great snorkeling) We hope to come back in the next couple if years! Would definitely stay again!
Oh and most important the beds are really comfy!
Everything was so easy and organized! The hosts are fantastic and were super communicative. Such a lovely place we'll be back for sure.
We absolutely loved our stay at Ralph & Priscilla's condo! The unit has been really well-maintained and we appreciated how clean it was. We have stayed in the Mauna Lani area every year that we've visited the Big Island and this unit was one of the better ones we've rented. We also really appreciated all of the beach gear & bikes they have made available for guests to use. We have found that most rentals in the area will not service their bikes and there's either an issue with holes in tires, braking or steering problems -- but each of the 4 bikes there were well maintained and worked great. All the beach gear were newer and also worked well. Ralph was great -- really hospitable & accommodating. It was a bonus to be greeted upon arrival with a few treats :) Will definitely be coming back!
Our stay at this property was fabulous. It was well stocked with kitchen items, beach gear, and even four bikes! Ralph was very attentive. Aloha
Ralph & Priscilla are awesome hosts. Great communication before, during & after our stay. The home was well appointed and has many extras that aren’t listed. Wonderful experience and we will definitely go again.
This is a great place to come and relax. Unit was very clean and organized. The amenities were outstanding and owner was very friendly and helpful to check to see we had everything we needed during our stay. We look forward to returning back soon!
Seamless arrival and great property : walking distance to Fairmont Orchid and local grocery store.
Pleasent pool area, and member access beach which is very sweet.
We recommended a map for new arrivals to the area to highlight where things are.
Very comfortable place just like home. Clean and no issues. Host is very welcoming and helpful.
Ralph sets the gold standard for well equipped lodgings. Everything you need is there and if you have questions he is easily reached. Wouldn’t think of staying elsewhere on Big Island.
Great Kulalani property! House came with everything you could need for a great week in Hawaii (beach umbrellas, floats, bikes, and beach club access). Ralph, the owner was easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend it.
My wife and I were visiting the Mauna Lani resort for just a few days and really enjoyed this unit within the Kulalani complex. The unit was super clean and full of amenities. Even beyond that, the owner (Ralph) couldn't have been more accommodating. He even offered to pick up a few items like milk and water as we were arriving her late. Don't hesitate to book this unit.
We LOVED our stay at this condo in Mauna Lani. It is so spacious, clean, bright, comfy, and the most organized rental I have ever seen!! Our hosts provided EVERYTHING for us including all types of beach gear, coolers, bikes, towels, etc. We especially enjoyed taking the bikes out for a morning ride to the little coffee cafe super close by. There is also a nice grocery store within walking distance...or a short drive. And, the private beach is one of the best on the island. We visited the pools and hot tubs which we loved. As well as the most delicious restaurant...Napua. Thank you Ralph for always being available for questions we had!! We hope to be back VERY soon. Aloha and Mahalo!!!
This beautiful, luxurious condo looks and feels brand new, and to top it off it has all the amenities you could want for your beach vacation: parking pass to a nice family friendly beach, with access to beach chairs and covered cabanas, and more chairs and beach umbrellas in the garage in case you need more! There are body boards, beach towels, kids life jackets, beach toys, pool toys, bikes, helmets, board games, you name it! There are two pools - one adult pool and one family pool, two hot tubs(which were definitely hot enough!), and a gym. I loved the decor and furnishings, which are happy and comfortable with plenty of room for whatever you decided to bring with you. The full sized kitchen was great, with all the appliances you need. Ralph was especially attentive and checked in multiple times to make sure we had everything we needed. Great vacation!
This is simply a wonderful place to stay. A few things that come to mind are: the home is stocked full of beach gear--boogie boards, umbrellas, snorkeling gear, kids toys, a wagon, etc. The house is really well appointed and everything is of very high quality. The backyard kitchen/dining area is spacious and remarkable with a wonderful grill. The master bedroom is incredibly roomy. And last but not least, Ralph is a wonderful host. I would definitely stay here again!
Ralph was an amazing host; beautiful property, absolutely everything you could need was provided for. A+++ experience from booking all the way through check-out. Always responsive and accommodating, Ralph is the true meaning of hospitality, the spirit of Aloha. Our family made beautiful memories and they are already asking when we’ll be back :-) Mahalo for sharing your home with us.
Likely the best VRBO experience we've had. Not only is the unit perfectly arranged and equipped for Hawaii, but Ralph/hosts were full of Aloha and so helpful with recommendations and answering questions. Great stay in a great location.
Lots of reasons to recommend this townhome. First…the location and facilities are five star. Pool, gym, private beach…all gated and safe. Second, the host has this place furnished very tastefully and has bikes and outdoor gear to use. What I enjoyed most was a great kitchen….new appliances, a rice cooker and other appliances, and a spice rack that made shopping simple. Most important…our host was extremely gracious and made us feel the Aloha from our first contact. We did some local sightseeing, hiking, and enjoyed the local area before retiring each night to the lanai to grill dinner. We will be back…its a lovely place for a couple, a family, or several friends to enjoy the Kohala Coast…
We had a wonderful stay at this townhome. Our host was terrific and very accommodating. He went beyond to make sure we had what we needed. The home itself was lovely. Attractive decor, well equipped and very clean. This was our fourth stay at Kulalani, and we would definitely rent this unit again.
My family and I just completed our 7 day stay at this amazing condo and we can't wait to return. Ralph and Priscilla have set a new standard for a "well stocked" VRBO. They equipped the place with everything we needed and then some. The place was immaculate, quiet and located in the perfect spot for easy access to all we wanted to do. We had a few questions during our stay and got immediate responses back. The community pool was beautiful and very close to the condo. I can not say enough great things about our stay. The pictures do not do this place justice. We will be back!

We just got back from 12 days and this unit totally made our trip. A bright a spacious condo that is immaculately clean and amazingly well equipped. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to prepare meals and the bbq right out on the back lanai was used every night. Our family of four appreciated all the space the condo gave us and all the furnishings were extremely comfortable. Our family enjoyed the beach chairs, boogie boards and snorkel sets and the beach wagon came in handy as we explored a number of beaches on the island. We loved the location of this condo as we walked every morning throughout Mauna Lani visiting various spots along the beach, the golf course and petroglyph park. The proximity to the grocery store, coffee shop and restaurants was greatly appreciated. The owner of this unit was extremely welcoming and was available as required if we had questions on the condo or different areas we wanted to visit. We look forward to returning to Mauna Lani and staying in this beautiful condo!
This was our 10th visit to the Big Island, and every time we have stayed in the Mauna Lani resort. Ralph and Priscilla's home is beautiful and well stocked. It was by far the cleanest place we have ever stayed, and so well organized. Although we didn't use everything, they supplied beach toys, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, coolers, a wagon, beach towels, etc.
They were so accommodating, and made our stay stress and hassle free. Communication was fantastic and they checked in with us during our stay to ensure everything was going well. We highly recommend staying here and definitely plan to be back.
On a personal note, thank you Ralph for meeting and welcoming us even though we arrived so late at night!
We loved this condo. It was very comfortable for our family. Very clean and the beds were comfy. Great location to walk the the grocery store, shops and great restaurants. Garage was stocked with beach supplies including a cooler, boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas and toys. Can't wait to come back!
We had a really wonderful and relaxing vacation at this beautiful home. The location is great, a quick walk to the Fairmont and the very keiki friendly beach and super close to a nice grocery store and restaurants. The Beach Club is great, a very short drive and great cabanas and delicious food and drinks at the restaurant there. We loved the mango margaritas. The beach is beautiful and my three year old son loved walking from the beach by the fish ponds looking at eel, crabs and colorful fish over towards the Mauna Lani. The house is very well outfitted with an extreme attention to detail. The kitchen was great for our family of four. It was nice to have netflix and amazon for kids programs and adults. The patio and bbq outside were great and easy to use as well. The pool was super close as well and the kids loved the 1ft keiki area, the great comfy shaded seating. Mom and dad loved the warmer spa/hot tub. The master was amazing and gigantic. We were able to use the huge closet as a bedroom for the baby, lots of room for our travel crib. There was a lovely lanai off the master. We loved having a washer and dryer as well- and detergent available . So many great beach toys- big soft beach towels, tommy bahama chairs, etc.. This was just perfect for our family. What a gem! We were lucky to have stayed here. Really amazing value and owners with aloha!
My family and I had the priveledge of staying here on our vacation. It was more than we could have ever had hoped for: the house was in pristine condition and had everything we needed. The kitchen was well stocked for someone like me who does a lot of cooking, and we could not believe all of the extras: coolers, a cart to haul your swimming and beach gear, snorkeling gear for 4, body boards, huge beach towels, basically anything you needed for the beach or pool. The pool is a 5 minute walk from the home, and the beach a 5 minute drive. The owners are prompt in their replies and are so helpful with any questions you have. This place is set up for relaxation and to make wonderful family memories. We have thoroughly enjoyed our stay!!
