Welcome to Hale Maluhia, (House of Peace) where we invite you to experience the warmth and Aloha that truly embody the spirit of the Hawaiian Islands!

This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath townhome located within the lushly landscaped Mauna Lani Resort features all the best there is to offer. Granite countertops are featured in the kitchen and bathrooms, along with custom cabinetry, crown moldings, and stainless steel appliances.  Each bedroom has a 4K HDTV, with high speed internet to ensure everyone can stream movies and shows at the same time.  Massive sliding doors in the great room open up to the L-shaped lanai, bringing the outdoors in for that coveted indoor/outdoor lifestyle. Decorated with a contemporary tropical island touch that will help transform your vacation experience to a luxury oasis, this artistically presented home offers true serenity and privacy with world class services and amenities just steps away.

With a spacious, well thought out layout comprised of a ground floor master suite and 2 bedrooms on the upper level, with more than 2000 sq ft of interior space, you will truly feel like you are on vacation as you set foot in this spectacular home that will delight your senses with its warm, tropical Hawaiian ambiance. With room to sleep 8 in beds, you will find the right amount of space, whether traveling as one to three couples, or an extended family.

The master bedroom home is furnished with a king size bed (California King), private ensuite bath with soaking tub, his and hers vanities, separate walk-in shower, and massive walk in closet. A bench nook and work station in the bedroom round out the perfect symmetry between comfort and functionality. The 2nd bedroom also has a king bed with walk in closet. The two queen beds in the 3rd bedroom are brand new from The Mattress Firm, and feature adjustable bed angles, allowing you to give the bed some incline when you'd like to catch up on your reading before turning in for the night. 

Downstairs, the large dining room table will comfortably accommodate 6-8 people, bar area will seat 3 and the gourmet kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, glassware, and all that you would need for the nights you choose to dine in. No detail has been overlooked, with French press coffee maker and grinder, Ninja blender, toaster and more, all available to ensure that no meal will be lacking. Of course, it wouldn't be a vacation in Hawaii unless you could opt to dine outdoors on your lanai, next to the top of the line Viking grill and summer kitchen. Can you imagine 75 degrees at 5PM in February? How about every night during your stay! Multiple seating options exist on the spacious lanai, from the aforementioned dining set, to the teak patio duo for your morning cup of Joe, and lastly to the plush monkeypod loungers for those apres beach Mai Tais. 

For those days where you want to stay closer to home, the recreation center at Kulalani is arguably the best on the coast, and boasts 2.5 acres of lushly landscaped lawns centered around two pools (1 lap pool and another lagoon-style resort pool), two jacuzzi spas, workout facility, and BBQ pavilion. All of this is only steps away from the unit! While you could spend the whole day there, you'll certainly want to get out to see the private Mauna Lani Beach club as well, where you'll have full access to the private parking area for residents and their guests. The beach there is one of the best for snorkeling, while the adjacent ancient fish ponds are a great place to explore and walk around. Keep an eye out for the "Puhi", or local morey eel! You will find the Beach Club to be relaxing, peaceful, and fun. To help with your enjoyment, we have provided a variety of pool and beach amenities, such as beach chairs, towels, boogie boards, beach umbrellas, and other items. 

When you need a break from cooking and grilling, there are a dozen fine dining restaurants within a ten minute drive of Kulalani, and you should try them all if you have the time! 

Just a stone's throw away from Kulalani are The Shops at Mauna Lani, Fairmont Orchid Hotel, and the new Auberge Resort Collection, where a multitude of dining options await. The Island inspired Tommy Bahama Restaurant, Canoe House at Auberge, Brown's Beach House and Hale Kai at The Fairmont Orchid Hotel are all excellent choices for a spectacular meal out. Merriman's in Waimea offers a fine selection of locavore cuisine to delight the pickiest of palates, while the culinary artistry of local chef Allen Hess at F.O.R.C. in Waimea await. Roy's at Waikoloa leads the pack with a dazzling array of pan-Pacific fusion that is sure to leave you satisfied, and Pueo's in Waikoloa Village offers a truly authentic Italian fine-dining experience. Manta and Copper Bar at Mauna Kea Resort have some of the best views of the sunset and ocean that you will see anywhere on the island, in an intimate atmosphere that boasts live music and a wine bar, along with manta ray sightings nearly every night! And last, but certainly not least, Lava Lava Beach Club at Waikoloa Resort has a fantastic beachfront locale, with entertainment nightly, and Happy Hour from 3-5 most afternoons. 

For the morning person, Kimobean Coffee and Juice 101 are located conveniently at The Shops at Mauna Lani, while the gold standard Starbucks is a quick drive away, at the Queen's Shops in Waikoloa. For a hearty breakfast, make sure you take the trip up to Waimea for a bite to eat at Hawaiian Style Cafe, and if you have a chance to pair it with a visit to the Wednesday and Saturday morning farmer's markets in Waimea, all the better!

As part of your rental of this home you are entitled to the use of one standard two seater Golf Cart located in the garage. Use of the Golf Cart requires waivers to be signed. Please contact Kohala Beach Buggies to sign waivers for use or to upgrade to a four seater or six seater golf cart at a heavily discounted rate.

You will find no end to activities to pleasure the active lifestyle seeker in every one of us, from snorkeling with green sea turtles ("Honu" in Hawaiian), to ziplining across lush mountain gorges, night diving with manta rays, or hiking out to see areas with the most recent volcanic lava flows you will see anywhere in the world! And at the end of the day, it's nice to have a haven to return to, a place to relax, unwind, and revel in the beauty and excitement you have just experienced. So go fix your favorite island beverage, then kick back, relax, and enjoy!

We thank you in advance for considering Hale Maluhia for your first (or next!) trip to the Big Island. It is truly an amazing place to visit, and we certainly hope you will love it enough to come back again and again!

Beautiful home that lives up to description given. Everything you need is there and probably some that you didn't think of as well. Our group consisted of 8 people, 6 adults and 2 young children there was plenty of room for all There was beach and snorkeling gear available to use which was a nice touch as well. If we were to go back to the Big Island again I would definitely see if this property was available.

Spacious condo on the northwest side of the big island. Well appointed and comfortable with everything you might need in a home base while exploring the island. Easy access to the North/South Highway as well the road up to Waimea and across to the Eastside. Enjoyed the privacy of the downstairs master suite relative to the upstairs bedrooms. Recreation center pools and fitness center are clean and well maintained. Unit grill ran out of gas, but Kai had a replacement tank dropped off quickly and without fuss. The true bonus here is the Beach Club at Mauna Lani. Truly a winning perk. All in all a lovely place to stay with family.

This was our the second visit to Mauna Lani and the first stay at this complex. About complex. It has everything that you will need for beach. It has beach chairs, body boards, snorkeling masks etc... Garage is huge - we had 3 row rental SUV and it fits without problems - it is 2 car garage. Kitchen has everything that you will need. It has central AC. Master bedroom is on the ground floor and 2 additional bedrooms at the first floor. Probably more space than we needed for family of 5. It is close to pools (you can just walk to them). Kids loved them! About location. This is our the second visit so it is saying something :) . It is close to private beach (you will have your keys for parking in the unit). It is great for small children and for snorkeling. Also it has very nice restaurant (great fish tacos). Another beach that we love is Hapuna. It is 10 min drive and it is perfect sand beach (sometimes it is great for body surfing - small boards).

We have stayed at Mauna Lani over 10 ten times in the last few years. This property is one of our top 2 picks. Aside from being clean and nicely decorated, they have nice beach toys and accessories. The wagon and large cooler were a total bonus.

This property was perfect for our family. The kitchen was well stocked which we put to good use making dinners multiple times. The garage was full of beach toys, chairs and boogie boards which were a lot of fun at the beach. But the best part was the location, which was right by the community pools and gym which was so convenient. Would definitely rent again!
