Our family of 8 with age range from 12 to 88 years were quite happy with Carol's well designed home. The lovely outdoor patio, well equipped kitchen, close proximity to 2 swimming pools with hot tubs and the responsiveness of owner & property manager made our stay most enjoyable.

Great house in great location. Had everything needed for two families, 8 of us total. Just a couple of minute walk to pool and fitness facility. Grocery store is a few minutes drive down the road and multiple beaches are within 5 minutes or less by car. We most enjoyed the beach club and black sands beach just to the south. Some in the group played golf, courses are in immaculate condition. Kitchen was well equipped. We did Thanksgiving dinner and many other meals and all worked great. Great outdoor space, great indoor space, I would recommend this house.

I've thought long and hard about this review. Let me start by saying that Carol, the owner, is very responsive to issues, but they don't necessarily get resolved quickly. Overall, our stay was good, not great. We reported lack of hot water in upstairs bathroom on our first morning. Property manager came by quickly but it took until Thursday to have hot water upstairs. Oven panel has to be reset constantly for use. Fortunately I have the same oven, so it was easy for me but super frustrating. Stove top also frustrating but with instruction book in hand manageable. TV in bedroom wouldn't work. Property manager fixed it on Thursday but neglected to tell us that the TV had to be turned on manually at the back. Also had difficulty water flow to new washer. Plumber came by with manager on Thursday and resolved that issue for us. Beds are really comfy but the linens are too small for the king sized beds. Constantly having to attempt to tuck them in overnight. Don't want to sleep on crumpled fitted sheets and a bare mattress. Annoying. On the good side, the house is very well equipped. Plenty of spices and supplies in the fridge and pantry. Pool and gym are less than 10 houses away and are great. Landscaping is gorgeous and the neighborhood is quiet but friendly. Beach Club is the bomb. You'll have to lurk for chairs and shade but turn over is pretty quick. Restaurant and bar are great. Beach and water are amazing. Lovely walk to Fish Ponds and Lava Tubes.

Lets start with the positives, this property has a great layout for the 8 people we had stay. 1 master bedroom with king bed with ensuite downstairs for older or people with mobility issues, another 2 bedrooms down stairs with joining bathroom was perfect for mom, dad & 2 young kids, 1 upstairs bedroom with king bed & ensuite was perfect for 3rd couple with no kids. The property is in a gated community with awesome community pool, hot tubs & gym. Convenient location to grocery store & shops. The downside to the property is the iron was missing & it took 6 days of our 7 day vacation for it to arrive, even though it was clearly communicated to the owner on day 1. Also, the ice maker was completely frozen & inoperable until we thawed it out & got it running, but it was still awful slow. The washing machine didn’t work until the maintenance personnel stopped by on the 6th day to fix it, again the property owner was notified on day 1 of this condition. The grill was filthy & unusable until it was cleaned by management personnel on day 6. I haven’t stayed in a lot of VRBO properties, but I did feel this property was not well maintained & many of the home appliances were either inoperable or very confusing to use to include the stove top. For the amount of money paid, this should have been a better experience, but if u can put up with the issues with the amenities of the property, its not bad.

This house was perfect for our family of 8 with lots of room for all of us to relax and enjoy our vacation. The host and property manager were very accommodating and very quick to answer any questions we had. The house had everything we needed including a bbq, boogie boards, beach chairs/ umbrella. Access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club was a huge plus. We really liked the restaurant there and the snorkeling was amazing. The house was very close (10 min drive) to the Blue Hawaiian Helicopter Tours site. It was also very close (10 min walk) to the Hawaii Loa Luau at the Fairmont Orchid Resort. Both are highly recommended! This was truly a magical vacation to the Big Island. Thank you!

Everything was exactly the way it was described, or better. The beds were very comfortable, the decor of the house was great, and the location was close enough to stores so that we didn't have to worry about finding food, while being away from the main parts of the city. As for the weather...well, it was Hawaii, so it was perfect. We were there during the January 2023 eruption of Kilauea -- Mother Nature really helped us out there as well. All in all, it was the perfect vacation for me and my family visiting from Europe. Thanks for everything, Carol!

The homeowner is very accommodating and the location is perfect for exploring the nearby beaches and exploring more of the Big Island. It was so nice to have access to the pools on property and the Beach Club. The house is great for families.

We were so pleased with our stay here. Our property was well equipped with everything we could need, including beach toys (boogie boards, sand toys, etc.). It was really quiet at night so we slept well. The location was perfect for our needs. It was a great base location for our different explorations. Close to Hapuna Beach. The best part was access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club. The kids could play in the water without us worrying about the waves. There is a restaurant there with fabulous drinks.

This property was so much better than even the pictures show! It was so spacious for our children and grandchildren and was sparkling clean. I especially enjoyed the upstairs balcony with Mountain View’s and the fragrant plumeria trees. Carol and her property manager were wonderful to work with. Thank you!

This place was top-notch. 4 beautiful bedrooms which worked great for our family - 2 couples, grandpa and two adult children. Kitchen was modern with great touches and easy to cook (we cooked several large meals in it). Two Master bedrooms were huge with large bathrooms, walk-in closets, etc. Location: Primo - 2 min walk to two great pools + nice gym with machines/dumb bells/etc. (which our 19yr old son especially appreciated). What was also nice is that it's a 20 min walk / 2 min drive to a beautiful beach to watch the sunsets or walk the beach. It's also great for exploring the coast, Waimea and jumping over to Hilo and the East side. Carol as a host was super-responsive to questions and having bikes, snorkels and other beachy things to use made it easy to take advantage of the great location. Would highly recommend to any large party looking for a great base to explore and a great place to hang out. Marc

This house is very spacious and comfortable. Lot’s of space for entertaining big groups. The pool, jacuzzi, and gym association are 1st class, and the location is convenient for anywhere on the Island you would want to go. The owner and property manager were very quick to respond to any questions and needs. Highly recommend.

Our experience staying in Carol’s home was so nice! She was kind and thoughtful from the beginning. The property manager was amazing. He came over a few times to help with a few things we needed. The home was beautiful and sparkling clean when we arrived. It is very spacious and plenty of space for a big group. The lanai was so nice to sit on in the mornings and listen to the birds and enjoy the warm weather. We really enjoyed our time in the home. There are so many thoughtful touches like a cooler, beach gear, sunscreen, pantry items, washer and dryer. It made our stay so comfortable. We will definitely stay here again should we be blessed to visit the beautiful Big Island again!

Lovely area and perfect layout for multi- generational gathering. Convenient to several beaches, small grocery store, and walking trails. Association pool area was peaceful, well kept, and a quick walk from house for beach breaks! A few extras would be nice: small cooler, a bucket with some sand toys for little ones, plastic glasses for safety since all flooring is tile, a highchair. Just mention these since it’s advertised as loving kids. And the kids did love it! So did the adults. Thanks for another great vacation on Hawaii.

We enjoyed staying at this home! Carol was very responsive and easy to get in touch with. We had a little bit of a hard time finding the house for the first time, but once we got the lay of the land, it was easy to navigate. We had plenty of space for our family of 4 plus grandparents. The location was nice and quiet at night (birds chirping in the morning!) and was a great launching off point to our adventures. We ate in a lot of nights so the kitchen was perfect for this. Thank you for a great place to stay!

Everything about our stay here was perfect! Communication was rapid, clear, and kind. The home was beautiful, comfortable, and had everything we could hope for to make our stay low stress, despite the hazards of traveling with kids. The proximity to pool and beach was ideal. We loved it and hope to come back soon!

Carol's house worked perfectly for our multi-generational family (2 adults, one 90-yr-old grandma, two 18-20 yr old kids). We could all have our own space or gather in the communal spaces. Neighborhood is lovely and quiet, super-short walk to pool and the private beach club is a 5 min drive. Loved morning walks to the Fairmont Orchid beach area and kids enjoyed biking to the smoothie shop. Property manager was quick and responsive when we had any issues.

The house was a very short walk from the pools and gym and there were three different beaches in the neighborhood roughly a mile from the house. There are also restaurants and a supermarket within walking distance, and we loved the convenience. Our family of five had a great vacation!

Very high quality property in a beautiful neighborhood. Perfectly kept and ready to go. Minor hiccups at check-in, but nothing to prevent a well deserved 5-star rating.

A group of my best friends (7 of us in total) rented this beautiful property. It was better than we expected and everyone in our group enjoyed our time here. We would definitely recommend Carol’s home and stay here again! It’s perfect for a group of friends or large family. Everything you need except your clothes and food are there!

Had a lovely stay at Carol’s condo— felt more like a home as we didn’t have any neighbors around us. Enjoyed the lanai for all meals and drinks. Great location for amenities, including Beach Club and access to Mauna Lani shops, i.e., Foodland and Snorkel Bob’s.

We enjoyed our stay at #210 KaMilo. The house was clean and functioned well for our needs. The Kamilo area in Mauna Lani is very nice and the pool, hot tube, exercise area is really nice and very close to this unit. We requested a couple of item and some servicing of the unit. These request and servicing were carried out quickly.

What a great place to stay! This home is beautiful and located in a nice community. Looks better than the photos. I found it to be well furnished, clean, and fully equipped with everything you may need in a home. Bathrooms were great. Beds were soft. Communication was very prompt with any questions that we had. I would stay at this lovely property again on our next visit. Mahalo.

Great stay. The house is in a great location. The included toys in the garage are a big plus. Access to the beach club was very nice.There were six of us and we were very comfortable. It would be nice to have hair dryers in the bathrooms.

We enjoyed our stay at Kamilo. Kamilo is our favourite resort to stay at on the big island as it is a beautiful quiet community situated within Mauna Lani and everything you need is within reach. Our favourite thing about staying at Mauna Lani is the access to the private beach and the restaurants that are nearby. The home owner was very helpful and easy to deal with. Carol was helpful from the beginning to the end of our stay, and the home was just like the photos show. Everything was as expected and we had everything we needed to enjoy our stay. Thank you Carol for being accommodating and helpful and opening your home to us!

Beautifully kept, lots of extras (we used on of the beach bikes, coffee machine. I couldn't find the xtra house keys. I saw in the notes that they were in the cabinet in the living room, but I didn't find any. I love th electric blinds. We used the hose to wash off bikes in the backyard. Pity the hot tub/pool was closed, that would have felt good after the Triathlon. I believe that there is a lead in the left sink (as you face it) under the cabinet. Thank you Carol!

First, a big thanks to Carol who saved our vacation. We had another rental property fall through at last minute and we were able to work with Carol to do this in a pinch. She's wonderful, communicative, doting, and super speedy on needs. The house is comfy, well stocked, we loved the 3 separate bedrooms with own baths, and the back deck is perfect for morning coffee. (Though a couple early mornings construction behind us started promptly at 7am--looks like they are almost done building over there though.) We also very much appreciated all the beach umbrellas, chairs, and stuff. But the neighborhood and amenities are the big win. We tried several beaches while there and all kept on coming back to the one at Mauna Lani Beach Club--calm when surf was pounding Hapuna, gated parking so never too too crowded, beach chairs and cabanas provided first come first served, and the best part was the awesome snorkeling. Incredible diversity of fish, including some really cool moray eels out on the point. We also enjoyed the beautiful community pools (especially the quiet lap pool) down the street. (Added bonus: it's so nice and quiet that a bird (Francolin?) has nested on the ground in the front entryway garden. Every morning we would say goodbye to her on our way out to more fun, and greet her coming back from a wonderful day.) Would highly recommend this property and this owner, and will look forward to staying here again.

We had a wonderful time on the big island. We loved the Mauna Lani area. Shopping, dining all close by, quiet streets, the pools and fitness area where super close and phenomenal for kids. We will definitely return! The house is great - well stocked, nice size, great kitchen, perfect for our family of 5.

Pretty easy to give this place five stars, it hit on so many levels… Location, amenities, facilities, cleanliness,… If there was only one drawback was that the beds were not the most comfortable. Would recommend this to anybody, including myself to come back again!
