Here are a few reviews from our renters:
'I am sitting in the living room of the Hopkins' condo as I type. My 5-year-old son is napping (hours on the beach and pool can wear even the most determined non-sleeper down) on 'the coolest bunk beds in the world;' my wife and daughter walked up to the infinity pool for more swim time. The condo is top-notch in every way. It is beautifully furnished and situated in a great location for views as well as access to the pool and fitness center.
The location of the condo development on the grounds of the Mauna Kea Resort is excellent. This is the first time we have stayed in Hawaii and not felt packed in with other vacationers. We are a short ride to the Hapuna Prince Beach Resort and its amazing beach and are within a 15 minute drive of a whole range of other resorts. But the best part is, when we’re at the condo, we don’t feel like we’re in resortville! In other s, this place offers the best of both worlds. We’ll be back!'

'Your condominium was beautiful. It was so nicely decorated and accommodating for a family of five. The ability to access the pool and beach at Hapuna Beach was a nice extra. We are definitely interested in staying there again some time.'
-- the Feldman family, Los Altos, CA

'Quite simply, the condo was spectacular - our family was there for the first week of 2010 and our only regret was that we would have liked to have spent more time there. In the past we have stayed at the Mauna Kea Hotel; however, now that we have 2 small children we find it challenging to stay in hotels. Staying at this condo was a great balance - we had a luxurious, spacious condo with every amenity that you could imagine plus had signing privileges at the Mauna Kea which was a 5 minute drive. We were treated and felt as if we were guests at the hotel but felt that we were at an advantage since we were able to sleep in a beautifully furnished, 2100 square foot home as opposed to a 500 sq. foot room. Did I mention the amazing views? Highly recommended and we will be back!'
-- the Youn family, Orinda, CA

'We want to thank you for allowing us to stay in your palatial abode. It was the most relaxing part of our trip and your outdoor patio/kitchen was just wonderful. We found it even more beautiful than your VRBO photos.
Your expansive, spectacular ocean view just took our breath away every morning as we lingered over our aromatic Kona coffee on the lanai. Several in our party had not visited the Big Island before and experiencing it with your place as our home base was just a giant bonus. Having access to the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince resorts could not have been more convenient. I even used the shuttle back to the townhouse when our group split up on various adventures and I was without a car and it was so easy and fast. We swam with turtles off the Mauna Kea beach and found the snorkeling there surprisingly good. The easy access to horseback riding in Waipio, Manta ray snorkeling from the Kona harbor and art browsing in Hawi, made us realize that your location just truly can’t be beat.
We rarely (if ever) say we want to return to a place because we like to try something new every time we travel (so many places so little time!). But this was so special and worked out so well for our group, we would very much like to return to your piece of paradise. So many, many mahalos for helping put smiles on the faces of our teenagers, taking the work stress away from my husband and making our family getaway the best yet!!'

Convenient place for events at the hotel. Friends stayed at the property next door so made for memorable time for dinners and launching point for daily excursions after work in the mornings at the hotel.

This property was perfect for our group of 7, including 3 kids/teens. First, the place was extremely clean and exactly as described. The view was gorgeous and we loved eating on the lanai or just sitting. Easy walk to the pool/fitness center. We joined the Mauna Kea Resort and it was an easy car ride to both the Mauna Kea and the Westin. We would definitely stay here again.

Wonderful property and is exactly as pictured. Sunsets on the patio were amazing. .Lorena and staff were very responsive to any concerns and immediately returned our calls. Any issues were corrected to our satisfaction. We enjoyed cooking on the stove and outdoor grill. We purchased the Mauna Kea / Westin pass and truly enjoyed these resorts. We would definitely consider staying here on a future trip.

Beautiful condo with amazing views. Community Infinity pool and hot tub were amazing! Very close to the best beaches and Waimea town, Hawi, other spots for hiking, farmers market, etc. we ate at the big resorts for fun — they were all close. Everyth8ng about the condo was even better than advertised. The bedrooms and bathrooms were luxe.

Wonderful at every level. From the grounds and view outside; to every room with thoughtful amenities inside. Add the Resort Package to insure easy access to parking, beach, dining, and pools at both resort hotels. Our deepest thanks for allowing us to visit.

This was our second time in this unit (3rd time in the complex and the place really is gorgeous, roomy, comfortable. Everything a family of 4 could ask for as far as space goes. The ability to add on resort access is one of the highlights! This trip the only drawback was the towels had to be rewashed before we could use them since they smelled like they had been left in the dryer for a really long time. Mildewwwww. Yuck. No stains but yucky smell. Part of the checkout routine asks guests to start a load of towels but maybe that should be changed to “put all towels in the washer” and have the cleaning crew start the load when they get there so the towels come out Downey fresh. Def a first world problem but worth noting. Thanks for a wonderful vacay. We introduced a newbie to the Big Island and know they will be back. And so will we!

We loved our stay. The unit had everything we needed. Only thing I’d change would be the bunk room which is great for kids but my teenage daughter would have preferred a queen bed. The unit is huge and the view was spectacular. Very quiet. The resort pass is a must with kids. Highly recommend.

I brought my older brother, niece and 85 year old mother with my husband and I for a nice get away and this place was excellent for my mother as it's a bottom level unit. The view was wonderful to wake up to ever day. The ability to use the resorts was key, not having to run around the island looking for great beaches, the best ones are at these resorts. There was even beach items, small cooler and details like that available in the unit. Making meals together, BBQ outside, it was perfect. Well stocked kitchen and laundry in the unit was a great convenience. Only issues encountered was the coffee maker stopped working half way through the trip but thankfully they had a French press, and the blinds were kind of delicate and tricky but im sure that was taken care of. Overall it was excellent and I would highly recommend.

The house was perfect. Amazing sunsets at night. The pre-arrival grocery shopping was terrific. The pool was lovely. We thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Thank you so much.

Great location, views, size etc. The reason that I rated 4 vs 5 stars is that the place needs a deep clean and some TLC.

This unit is very nice and well stock. The third bedroom with double bunks allowed us to comfortable fit four the kids (teens). We purchased the Club at Mauna Kea pass that allowed for hotel and beach privileges and it was well worth it. It was especially helpful with dinner reservations as many hotels in the area were not accepting reservations unless you were staying their hotel. Both hotels and beaches are great - we spent more beach and pool time at the Westin as the pool was much better and the food and bar was better too their. For dinner Manue Kea was better. One suggested refinement is on the concierge service for groceries - let travel order groceries online and then have the concierge pick them up before you arrive. Lastly - the pool and gym near the unit was excellent.

I stayed here with 3 other girlfriends, celebrating a friend’s birthday. The condo is very spacious, comfortable with a great view! The beach at the Mauna Kea Resort is one of my happy places. As others have said you don’t need to pay the extra resort fee to enjoy the beach. It was great that the condo came with lots of beach towels, beach chairs and umbrellas. The 3rd bedroom is definitely geared towards children. My friends who shared that room would have been more comfortable with adult beds. With that being said everyone said they would book this condo again. I see myself coming back with grandchildren.

We had an awesome stay for our recent spring break. This condo very comfortably housed two families of 4 which included my family with two teenagers and my brothers family with two young children. The bunk room was perfect for that! Being on the first floor was so convenient and we loved using the outdoor kitchen and dining outside! The condo had everything we needed and was the perfect size! Just perfect and we will stay there again for sure!!

Gorgeous view and spacious condo. Well stocked with every appliance you could need. Management was quick to respond to any issues we had and make sure our stay was satisfactory. Pool and work out facility were beautiful, peaceful and well maintained. They had very up to date gym equipment and lounge chairs. We had a terrific stay and would definitely stay here again. Hapuna and Mauna Kea beach were only a 5 minute drive away. We didn’t pay the extra for use of the resort and were definitely happy we didn’t. Would’ve been a waste of money in my opinion. Easy to park at Hapuna ($5 a day) and walk 100 meters down to beach. Also a beautiful walk along a dirt path from Hapuna parking to Mauna Kea beach (less than 30 minutes) if you don’t manage to get one of the 35 free parking spots at Mauna Kea. We did a drop off each day at Mauna Kea, and then one of us would do the walk. Great way to get exercise and the views are amazing. Plus, the pool back at the condo is so much nicer than the resort pools. We had a late flight, so once we checked out, we just hung out at the condo pool for the afternoon. It was awesome!

Our family of six loved this property. It has everything - from household supplies to games to beach toys to high end appliances. Home is very clean and well maintained. Super easy to work with owner and agent. Location is very peaceful and beautiful. Amenities include a gorgeous infinity pool just a short walk from the home plus beach access at TWO resorts. Lots of room and comfort for our family. We didn’t want to leave!

This is a great option for families. Plenty of room for kids in the double bunk room and the unit was beautifully furnished. Easy and full access to both Hapuna and Mauna Kea, plus the Wai' ula' ula amenity center, which has a very nice pool, hot tub and gym. Amenity center a three minute walk and resorts a five minute drive. And nice ocean view from the lanai. Can't miss with this rental.

We loved our time at this condo! This was absolutely the best location for a beach vacation and access to the highligts of the island. We saw the volcano, explored Kona and the northern coast. The access to both the Hapuna Prince Beach resort and Mauna Kea Beach Resort also provides amazing beach and pool time for the family. Absolutely beautiful resorts. The owners of this condo are wonderful to work with and were available for any questions. The condo is in wonderful condition and has loads of things to make your say easy (travel books, toys for kiddos, well stocked kitchen, etc). We would absolutley rent this condo next time we come back to the big island!

We had a fabulous stay in this lovely condo! The ground floor location was great because it gave our party of 6 (my husband and I, 2 daughters, one son-law, and our 19-year-old son) room to spread out on the generous covered patio and lawn with a postcard-perfect view of flowers, grass, distant swaying palms, and blue ocean beyond. At night, we stargazed from the lawn at the clear night sky----more stars than I had ever seen before. We even saw shooting stars! The kitchen was fully -equipped, and we ate breakfast every day there and had one great barbeque dinner. A great selection of excellent restaurants is a short (5-30 minutes) drive away. We fully enjoyed the thoughtfully -included beach and other activities at the Mauna Kea Resort(we never had time to use the Hapuna offerings)----beach lounging, boogie-boarding, swimming out to the platforms, hiking along the coast, ukelele lessons, tennis (there was an extra fee for this when we used it in prime time), etc. It was nice to have delicious smoothies at the Hau Tree restaurant right on the beach, and lunch there, too. We really appreciated the owners' providing us with the use of boogie boards, beach towels, and snorkeling gear! We used the gear at Kahalu'u Beach one morning and saw a plethora of colorful fish in their natural habitat! This place is definitely one we would love to return to. We have stayed at the Mauna Kea, Hapuna Beach, Kona Village, and Four Seasons hotels, and in a condo at Kolea and this is, for our party of 6, the perfect option!

This was a great condo for my brother and my family to meet for vacation. Two master bedrooms and bunk beds to sleep four kids, this place was ideal. Also, it provided beach access and amenities for both the Hapuna Prince Beach Hotel and Mauna Kea. Each offered great beach locations 2-3 minutes away and good parking passes. Also, heck out the Manta Restaurant at Mauna Kea Hotel. Good food. Finally, if you need anything, like trash pick up, the resort staff attends to you immediately. If going back to Hawaii we will request to stay, again. This one has a repeat customer.

Beautiful condo with very nice view. Well equipped kitchen and lots of beach gear to use. Also loved having access to two hotels as their pools and beaches are very nice. Gym and pool are decent at the complex. Hotel pools and gyms are very nice. Condo probably needs a new dishwasher. It never worked right .

Trust the reviews! This is a wonderful property that is even nicer in person. Kids walked in and screamed when they saw it--it was THAT nice. We lived liked kings and queens for a week. Very clean. Beautiful views. No clutter. Lots of clean towels. Large Washer and dryer and laundry detergent (thank you very much). 3 large bathrooms. Snorkel gear in the closet. Every possible kitchen tool you could ever need. Easy drive to Mauna Kea Beach and resort with parking and full use of their facilities (This amenity is thoughtfully included in the rental of this particular property). Short walk to a lovely pool and fitness center. Look no further--this is the property you're looking for! If you have never been to Hawaii Island before (we hadn't), visit Mauna Kea at night to look through their telescopes at the visitors center, go snorkeling or on a snorkel cruise, and visit Volcano. Waimea is a pretty drive for groceries and coffee. (They have a very capable Urgent Care Center too for stitches in case a bike ride into the volcano goes awry). And have at least one family dinner on the lanai overlooking the ocean at sunset. Happy memories. Thank you Rosemary and David for your hospitality and generosity.

I have just returned from 12 awesome days in this Condo. We have come to Wai Ula Ula every year for about 7 years, but this was the first time in this Condo. It was by far the best experience we have had...the furnishings, the beach toys, the view, the way the bedrooms were situated were all perfect. Nothing better than sitting on the porch at sunset with a beverage in hand taking it all in. The Hapuna and Mauna Kea connection make this the best vacation ever!!!
