Our family of 7 including kids and grandkids just returned from our stay in this house at the Mauna Lani resort. It is well equipped, clean and very spacious. The manager Burt went out of his way to make sure we have everything we need. Would recommend to anyone looking for a relaxing time on the Big Island.

Had a wonderful time. Kids enjoyed the walking trails, exploring. The amazing pool just across the street. It was a beautiful walk down to the Beach Club as well as the walk around the sea and lake. The house was everything we needed. Perfect!

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.

This was an immaculate, well-provisioned villa. Our party of six was very comfortable. The kitchen was particularly well appointed with lots of high-quality cooking gear. The management company (Burt and Krish) were very responsive. It's in a gated community in the Mauna Lani development which has is a community club with 2 pools, 2 hot tubs, gym, and large barbeque cooking gazebo for gatherings. The grocery store is 1/2 mile away. The villa is very private and has a small backyard (no view per se). We loved our stay and hope to come back some time.

What a great vacation home! The house worked brilliantly for us - lots of space to be together and also to have separate quiet time - inside and out. Beautifully landscaped providing private back yard living space. The home was very clean and well equipped. All of our generations loved it and highly recommend this home!

We were a party of 6 adults assembling for a holiday getaway. The home and the location were perfect for everyone. Easy access to great amenities, the beach, restaurants, and golf. We had a great time riding bikes, walking, playing pickleball, and hanging out at the house. The home is beautiful, private, well-maintained and designed. Each couple had a king-size bed and private bath. Beautiful great room & kitchen that opened onto the lanai. The kitchen is very well equipped. Lots of beach chairs, towels, boogie boards to use. Burt and Krish were easy to communicate with and responsive. One of the nicest properties we have booked.

Nice well-equipped property close to lots of big island fun. Amazingly equipped for beach fun with snorkels and boogie boards for an entire family. Good kitchen and outdoor dining space. Only downside is that you need to drive to the beach.

Property was well equipped with bikes (6 adult, 2 kids), beach chairs, coolers, etc. Snorkel gear was okay so we rented to get better functioning gear. AC worked well and furniture/beds all comfortable. Community pool easy walk but not heated. Gym used daily - solid. Ceiling fan in master spins the wrong direction and we couldn’t find a way to reserve it, so limited cooling benefit. Others worked fine. Lots of kitchen accessories and easy to cook meals. No real complaints, enjoyed our stay.

We had a lovely 4 night stay at this property and loved it! The rooms were great, the bathrooms were clean and had plenty of towels, the kitchen was quite well appointed with most of the things you might need to make your own meals. The location was great, close to most of the things we wanted to do, and the amenities were very nice. Would absolutely stay here again.

We had a multigenerational group of 7. This home was perfect! The kitchen is well stocked (kitchenware and cooking staples), the rooms are spacious, the home location in the complex is convenient to the pool (lovely!), the area is walkable but we sure enjoyed the golf cart and e-bikes! The garage also comes stocked with beach gear - boogie boards, snorkle gear, beach chairs, etc. I would love to stay here again!

The layout of this unit is great. The furnishings are nice and a little bit better than other Mauna Lani units we've stayed at. The location of Mauna Lani is great, with access to the beach club, nice lil gym in Kamilo sub development, Food Land close by and it's a good jumping off point to head south to Kona, or up to Waimea. Property Management made check in easy and their app is good at answering questions about the unit (e.g. how to use TV, AC settings, etc..) Definitely recommend.

Ka Milo is a great complex, quiet with nice pool and hot tub, excellent access to Fairmont beach and access to Mauna Lani beach. House is spotless beds are great, lots of space for kids to run and play. Owner very responsive and accommodating. Had our thanksgiving dinner here. Great kitchen!

Three generations, 9 of us, stayed at Kamuela for a week and we all agreed we would return in a heartbeat. Property is as pictured. Well maintained with plenty of room for all. Loved the balcony for meals overlooking the golf course, the multiple bedroom patios, and the great room with spacious kitchen and dining room. Community has two great pools, one adult and one family friendly. The golf cart provided was a blast for all and allowed easy access to the local shops and resort restaurants as well as the Mauna Lani Beach club. It’s an outstanding combo of amenities that enhanced our fun quotient! Burt and Krish are superb communicators and made us feel both welcome and supported. Thanks for a terrific stay!

House and property exactly as described. A few minor maintenance issues needed ie safety alarm on one door and needing slightly clearer instructions on hot tub. House had everything you needed from kitchen with very well stocked dishes, cooking, serving and storing food. Hand mixer was the only appliance we didnt find.

Facilities were as described and then some! Beach card availability allowed us access many beaches and local resorts for added fun and enjoyment. Host was very gracious and quickly responded to very minor and minimal issues which did not affect our vacation whatsoever. Place was very clean and in impeccable condition. Highly recommend!

Enjoyed our stay at the property and the resort area. The small beach and recreation area were perfect for our two young grandchildren as well as for the adults who enjoyed the snorkeling and the gym. The property was spacious for our group of eight, and very well stocked, including items for the youngest guest. Mike was very prompt with dealing with any issues encountered at the property. Would consider staying again depending on the size and age of our group.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Overall, we were very happy with the home. The unit had great access to the swimming pool and was in walking distance to the ocean and shops, etc. I liked the fact that you were close to the market, coffee shops, and other stores but that they were 1/2 mile away. The home was in good operating shape and was beautiful. The kitchen and indoor and outdoor dining areas perfectly accommodated our party of 11. The swimming pool gate was approximately 100 yards from our front door and there is a nice pavilion for use. Overall, it is a wonderful place and I would use it again when going back to the Big Island. The home could use a deep cleaning, baseboards and entryway to the home as well as the outdoor area near the laundry facilities. It is also time to replace the propane grill. Very happy with the unit, I would rate it a 9 of 10. Mahalo,Hank

The house is lovely and was clean with all the extras (dishes, pool towels, etc). The descriptions are accurate and this is a good location. Not a lot in the surrounding area for amenities but perfect for a nice, relaxing stay. Lots of restaurants and shopping about a 45 minute drive away. The pool was heated and the home was very private and quiet. We had some minor maintenance issues but were happy with the property managers resolution. Overall a great home and stay!

This place was perfect!!! It was big and roomy and had everything we needed for a family of 4. It was soooo clean and comfortable. My teen boys loved having their own bedrooms and bathrooms. In the evenings after long day at the beach or site seeing it was nice to come home.to an air conditioned house..It was like home away from home. Before we checked in we went to Costco by the airport and stocked up on snacks and food. The house had all the cooking items and seasoning we needed son it was nice to enjoy some home cooked food which cleaved us from having to eat out every meal. The grill outside was clutch. We did enjoy some meals out. Our favorite place was Umekes fish market which was by far the best place we ate all week. They had the best Tuna Sashimi we’ve ever had!!!! The house had all the beach necessities that we needed. Chairs, ice chest, towels, paddle board. The beach is about an 8 minute drive away and was a small private beach. Perfect for families with young children. My teens enjoyed it but preferred the other beaches with waves. Which were all about 15-20 Minute drive. But was allll worth it. The beaches off site are gorgeous. We went to Kua Beach for a couple days and enjoyed the crystal blue waters.

Property was well maintained, and very quiet neighborhood. Easy walk to the pools and hot tub. The property manager Mike was extremely helpful and kind with all my previsit and visit questions. Thankful there was directions for use of remote controls, for the non tech savvy. The kitchen was wonderful for a large family. I highly recommend this property, the house fit all of our needs and then some. Having access to private beaches was amazing. When we went to the Hilton for the dolphin experience, we were so happy we didn't stay there. Gorgeous...but way too many people. This home was quiet, relaxing, peaceful and made it easy to switch into the Aloha state of mind. Being close to the Mauna Lani Auberge was ideal. Great restaurants and less crowded. The local market was close and the most hospitable and had what we needed. So location was ideal, cleanliness perfect, well kept and managed. We will definitely be back and will stay there. Thanks again to Mike, we had a dream family vacation.

December 2023

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.

We are a family of 9 (ages 5 mos-72yr) and this home had more than enough space for all of us to be comfortable. The common spaces were large and the large lanai was perfect for early mornings and outdoor dinners. The kitchen was well stocked with every piece of equipment we could ever need, as well as some basic cooking supplies. The rooms were large and comfortable and the amenities were excellent. The kids loved the pool and the beach club (and the very well-stocked garage!). Only complaints are the dishwasher was a little unstable and the beds were too soft for our liking, but that’s just personal preference. Would definitely recommend this home!

In my humble opinion this is probably the best accommodation I’ve ever stayed in during a vacation. The pictures of the home are essentially exactly what you walk into upon arrival. Although there was a minor hiccup in getting into the property Burt was so caring and calm when the Vrbo assistant connected us. During the stay Burt was easily accessible and provided many suggestions on various interest we had, could be found. Immediately you observe the owner spared no cost in maintaining this beautiful property. The layout is perfect for any family and the decorative touches were well thought out. We had a mixture of older and younger adults and everyone was well accommodated. The amenities listed are just the basics of what was provided. You will find top notch gems throughout the home. The one bedroom up stairs and the master bedroom and two additional guest bedrooms down stairs were perfect for our group. The three Lani areas were eye pleasing and soul soothing. They golf cart was great for travel to the private beach. We didn’t visit the resorts shopping area but were pleased we had the option. Definitely adhere to the car size recommendations as it is pertinent to allow ample space to park in the drive way and garage. We hope to return to this property some day, it was definitely a big part of our vacations success!

There was no need to go to Target or convenience store for anything. Only needed the food to cook. Thoughtful touches such as sunscreen and makeup removal towels. Golf cart was useful-it may need a new battery as it doesn’t hold charge for very long. It got us around and was very useful. Loved loved our stay!!! Wouldn’t hesitate to return at anytime and would highly recommend the same property to family and friends.

The four bedrooms with en suite bathrooms were perfect for our family. The family with the preschooler had the guest house and that worked out great for them as they could put her to bed earlier or give her quiet time away from the activity of the rest of the family. The house was lovely, clean and comfortable. We really enjoyed the pool and hot tub every day of our stay. We all prefer softer beds than the house has so that would be the only thing we would change. But, we'd return next time we go to the Big Island.

The instructions for opening the gate and the house and for the use of appliances, tvs, and ac were detailed and clear. The appliances were up to date, kitchen amenities were great, house very clean. We totally enjoyed our stay.

Gorgeous house and pool, very well maintained. The house was beautifully decorated with top of line cookware and appliances. All you need to buy are drinks and snacks, which can be purchased at the market on the Mauna Lani property (less than a mile from the house.). Will definitely come back to this property again.

Great location, every possible thing at the home you could ask for. The community pool and gym complex was awesome, excellent snorkeling area was close by. Fully stocked home made cooking for six easy. No issue with required noisy pool alarm as they were downstairs. Golf course is right there but they can’t see in. View of the ocean was a plus. Property mgmt folks were fantastic. Very responsive and helpful. Really hard to beat!

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.

Our group of three couples have traveled to Hawaii many times and always stay in a private home. This property has been the absolute best. The pictures are accurate, host is amazing and very attentive, and the amenities amazing. Best beach ever. Highly recommend. Mahalo Heidi.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We couldn’t have picked a more perfect place for our multigenerational family of 9. Our stay was September 2-9 2023.It was like a model home and had an extremely comfortable floor plan. We in our 70’s took the mini master bedroom and bath on the main floor. While the adult kids and their families took the 3 bedrooms downstairs. What a quiet home! Together we enjoyed the open concept on the main floor level where the kitchen, living room, dining room and extended patio were. Everyone could still interact while sitting/working in different areas. The home had Subzero and Wolf kitchen appliances which we were not expecting! It had a well equipped kitchen for cooking but you will need To purchase all ingredients from the store. No salt/pepper/spices etc. it is in an upscale gated community of Ka Milo with 2 pools and nice recreation center. Also well located to grocery store, beaches, restaurants but must everywhere. Very close to Queen’s and King’s shopping centers and Waikoloa Village. Mike from Shiwota Management Co. was so professional and accommodating the entire process. A few issues arose but everything was quickly resolved. Considering we never met Mike, we would be happy to use his company again. We really loved our stay and hope to return in the future!

They even had kid plates and bowls.The pool was a 2 minute walk. The owners were great and we coulfnt be more happy with the experience! Highest recommendation!!

Absolutely love the property. It was a very quiet neighborhood, very relaxing with beautiful sunrises. We love the central location to all of the island, including the adventures that we went on and spectacular golf. We look forward to our next trip.

We’ve stayed at a lot of condos on the Kohala Coast and this one stood out for its high quality kitchen, bathrooms, and amenities given the very affordable price range (for the area). The only downside was the lack of a shower or tub in the third bathroom so anyone staying in that bathroom has to borrow the other bathrooms to bathe. Other than that, everything was great. The pool is large and there were seldom any other people in it. The outdoor lanai with the gas fire pit was a nice spot to relax. There are control panels for the surround sound system, air conditioning, and lighting. Excellent wine glasses, a wine fridge, nice convection oven: very good communication with the property manager via text.

The house was beautiful, well taken care of and owners were super easy to work with. We went as two families with 2 kids each. 2 masters and 2 other bedrooms worked great. Nice small yard w/ bbq and table for 8. Garage with every beach item you need. Pool around corner, quick walk. The membership to the beach club was fantastic. One note, hit the Safeway just south of the airport before you come up since the close grocery stores are smaller resort type stores. We would rent this place again!

We arrived to find that the main fridge had a sign on it saying it was being repaired; although the compartment temp was cold, the freezer was covered in ice crystals and the fridge water wasn’t working . The second fridge had no ice cube trays or water maker, and the tap water did not get cold. We had to go out and buy a bag of ice. Management responded quickly saying we could use the main fridge and were able to get cold water from it- but the ice maker never worked. Outside the downstairs bedroom with the 2 queen beds was a pipe - dehumidifier, maybe? It dripped every night onto the light by the French doors and the concrete patio, making it noisy for sleep and possibly a trouble spot in the future. The upstairs door to the lanai is super heavy and troublesome to latch- it would take us 5 or 6 tries before it would work. The community pool was great but perhaps offer more than 1 key, because some of us would get there at different times and had to wait or try to contact family by phone- if they were in the pool, it was along wait. Some of the pool floats or plastic tubes wound up having holes in them and were not usable. Perhaps check after each group to be sure they are still ok. Some of the bikes have combination locks on them- but we did not know what the numbers were and did not want to take the bikes out and possibly have them stolen. This does sound negative, but it really isn’t . These were issues that affected our stay on a daily basis.

From check in to check out was AMAZING!! Beautiful location with access to beautiful beaches, easily accessible with the provided golf cart. Although close to neighbors, it still feels fairly secluded....especially in the wonderful pool. Kitchen was amazing and pantry was well supplied with basic spices. Be prepared to bring your own coffee or K-cups as there were none to get us through even one morning.

We loved the house and all the amenities it provided. Bedrooms had comfortable beds and a good layout. Garage was well stocked with beach chairs, snorkel gear, toys and bikes. A couple of minor negative things: we arrived after dark and could not get any of the exterior light to come on. Next day we realized somebody had unscrewed all the bulbs. Also the kitchen refrigerator was not working so a freestanding one was provided. None of these things was a big deal. We enjoyed our stay very much.

We loved our stay in the house. The description was right on even better in person. Beautiful setting . Very quiet and serene. I hope we were good to the neighborhood.

September 2023

The home was great! All amenities were there, wonderful welcome gift, great communication! The location is fantastic. Only area of feedback was on cleanliness. The house was cleaner than most homes we’ve stayed at in Hawaii, however it looked like they were battling an insect problem in the master bedroom. There were traps that were full of bugs and some on the surrounding carpets. Everything else was absolutely fantastic and I would 100% recommend it to anyone going to the area!

This house and location were beautiful and I am super picky about where we stay. We had our elderly parents from Australia join us and they RAVED about this spot. No stone was unturned when this location was designed as a luxury property. The only suggestion everyone in our group had was softer beds. However, I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this to anyone. I cannot say enough. I would totally recommend anyone who loves beaches to take the 10-minute drive to Hapuna Beach, I have been fortunate in my life to visit many beautiful beaches such as Bondi, but this one would definitely be in my top 3. Thanks for a great vacation, we were sad to leave.

Really enjoyed the space this rental had! Plenty of room, plus a great patio to hang out as well. We loved spending time together as a family after our beach or pool adventures. The private beach is nice. Plus, the Fairmont and another beach (non swimmable) is within walking distance (about three quarters of a mile). Enjoyed our morning walks. The only drawback is that there are not a ton of restaurant options there. If you drive to Waikola village (12 minutes away) there are more. Grocery stores like KTA, Wal-Mart, Costco, Target are much further away. Overall, this was a great base for extended families or large groups. The kids enjoyed it and the pack in play provided was nice.

Booked the house for 6 adults and 3 kids. Plenty of room and very kid friendly (18 month old). House was immaculate and very modern with amazing kitchen/living room area where we gathered for breakfast and dinners. It was a very short walk to the pool for the kids. The property beach was smallish, but never crowded. We were always able to find a cabana to setup and did our swimming/snorkeling. The house was very well stocked with beach equipment with chairs, floats, coolers, and snorkel gear. The bikes also were a welcome addition to explore the area. The surrounding resort area was also nice with easy access to Foodland, coffee shop, and various restaurants. Our entire family had a great time and look forward to coming back!
