Kulalani at Mauna Lani Reviews


We had such a nice time. The home was beautiful and very well stocked. It was such a comfortable oasis to return to after exploring the area every day. Wendee always responded very quickly and sweetly to any email I sent to her. We would definitely stay here again, if it was available. I could understand that it might not be, because of high demand. It is that nice of a place!

This is a very nice 2 suite property with 2 primary bedrooms, each with their own full en suite, good kitchen with full stock of dishes, pots, pans, appliances, and very nice living spaces indoor and outdoor. The shared pools and gym and first rate and close by (150 metres). We have stayed in other units in this community and this property is very good. Grocery is nearby. Some beaches and restaurants are walkable but you need a car to get to the best beaches and better restaurants

Well appointed. Spotless, clean & comfortable. Our family of 4 had a lovely stay. My son used the gym and community facilities daily. The pool was quiet & friendly. The adjacency of the two resorts, restaurants & grocery expanded dining choices & made everything convenient. We had a couple minor requests from management and their response was immediate & helpful. We will be back.

We stayed in Ralph & Priscilla's condo for a little over 3 weeks, and were very happy with just about everything. Location was great, and we really enjoyed the pool area, which we think is much better than the one at Fairways. Condo was very clean and well-outfitted. We didn't end up using the GEM cart much, but with more people I can see that it could be very handy. The A/C system took a little getting used to but was great once Ralph helped us understand how it operated. It wasn't actually complicated; we just don't need A/C where we live, so it was unfamiliar to us. We've been home a few days, and are definitely missing our "home away from home." Hope to return one day!

Good Location. Accommodated 4 adults well. Washer and Dryer were not all that clean (esp washer ) and the dryer vent appeared clogged as it took forever for items to dry, Loved having all the beach items! Pool areas very nice.

Condo was exceptionally clean and beautifully furnished. It is well stocked with high-end appliances and utensils. The condo complex is well maintained and the grounds are lush and welcoming. The pool(s) are quite nice. Dealing with the proprty manager was very professional and timely. This is a beautiful condo in a beautiful complex in a beautiful resort. We would stay here again without hesitation we loved it..

Very nice 3 bedroom home in a gated community. Always love the Mauna Lani Beach Club and the shopping center. Home was clean and kitchen was well supplied. 5 min walk to 2 pools/hot tubs. My only comment is that the king size bed is very high off the ground, making it a climb to get into bed every evening. Note also the two other bedrooms are upstairs in case you have accessibility issues.

This property is well located, clean and fully equipped for eating in rather than spending an exorbitant amount eating in. Beds are very comfortable and there is very little outside noise. Master bathroom is large with a great shower. Would definitely rent this property again.

The resort property itself was amazing, and the proximity to the beautiful pool area and gym was wonderful. The unit itself was a bit dated and the quality of some of the items was not really up to resort standard. There was no streaming service for the television or device for connecting music, which was disappointing. The master bedroom and enormous deck were what made the place better than average, however the main lanai was very small and had a very awkward set of patio furniture which made it difficult to enjoy. Tried to contact the property manager on a couple occasions and never heard back? One of the landscape sprinklers was soaking the patio furniture every day, but we eventually figure out how to correct the matter ourselves. Apart from that, the unit appears to be strictly a rental and so lacks some of the nicer touches of having an owner involved.

This specific property had it all! Very well maintained, clean, equipped. It was very comfortable and providing all the beach gear in the garage was also a big convenience. There’s a supermarket nearby and the access to the private beach club was a major plus! Located in a beautiful area. The 72 degree AC limitation was NO issue at all… it was actually very comfortable. The management company was a pleasure to deal/interact with. Would highly recommend this one!

Kulalani is a beautiful property that is very well kept. It was great having the Gem cart to go to the beach and shops. So convienent. The unit had everything we needed and was clean on arrival.

Ralph and Pricilla, our hosts, replied quickly to any questions and sent clear entry instructions to the property. We look forward to returning.

We have stayed at several condos in Mauna Lani. This was our first stay at Kulalani and it was amazing! The condo was luxurious, very comfortable and exceptionally well stocked with beach items and kitchen supplies. The large main floor master bedroom / ensuite was elegant, comfortable and tastefully decorated. The large two car garage, connected directly to the condo, was very handy when returning after a day exploring. We really enjoyed the large and welcoming wraparound lanai for morning coffee and evening chats. We hope to stay again,.. and again. Thank you for allowing us to stay in your lovely condo.

Very nice and clean apartment. The apartment is equipped with everything you need. The check in did not go well, an hour late, since the apartment has not yet been cleaned, was a small misunderstanding that was then clarified, everything is fine! For this we were allowed to stay in the apartment for a few hours longer, thank you very much for that. Overall, a great stay, highly recommended.

This was an excellent choice for us- spacious, comfortable with great amenities, and everything we needed for our kids too. Our girls loved the pool and the beach club was awesome. It made our lives so much easier to have the basic child gear (high chair, pack n play, baby monitor) included. The guide was very helpful too. Would definitely stay here again.

We absolutely loved our time in this home in Mauna Lani. The location was central to many beaches and just a short cart or bike ride to a private beach with great snorkeling. It was so nice having a grocery store store so close. We loved the gym and pool access as well. Ralph was a wonderful host. We will definitely be staying again!

We love Big Island but this the first time we stayed at this development and this unit. I had hard times leaving, so comfortable and cozy it was. Everything is organized well, kitchen is perfectly stocked. Beds are comfortable. Lay out is very nice. Balcony off master is lovely - birds are chirping every morning and afternoon. Decor was great as well, it made you feel very cozy. You get access to the beach Club which is lovely as well. Gym was great and so was the lap pool. Overall it was fantastic! thanks the management company for taking care of us and thanks to owners for renting it out.

Fantastic rental. Exactly what we were looking for in a rental in the exact right location. Jason is a friendly, proactive manager, the property is well maintained, two great pools, two hot tubs, solid gym, and the condo is extremely comfortable and well outfitted. In a world full of underwhelming short term rentals, the new to market 704 Kulalani is excellent. Highly recommended.

We had a great time staying here. The location was great. And having access to the beach club was amazing. The beach club was maybe a five minute drive from the location. But you could park there at the beach and use the cabanas and lounge chairs. The pool within the condo complex was also very close (may be about 100 yard walk). our kids love the saltwater pool and spa. It was a great location to go to other beaches and other attractions on the island and we used this as our home base. They had all the extra stuff for the beach; chairs, coolers, towels, and even a wagon borrow. You could tell that it seemed like the owners lived there previously. As they had had all the possible kitchen appliances you would ever want. The furniture was all very comfortable to sit on. We have stayed in a lot of vacation rentals previously and this one was by far the nicest with the most “stuff“ and things you would actually put in your own home. It was nice that they had extras like salt and pepper and you didn’t have to buy all of those every time you wanted to have a meal. The unit is well outfitted, the decor is very nice. It did feel like a home away from home for our short time there. There was a small hiccup with some of the appliances while we were there, but they were very communicative about getting it fixed. I would 100% recommend this location for anyone with a family looking for a place to stay. We would definitely stay there again.

We appreciated the opportunity to stay in this well maintained and appointed Kulalani home in Mauna Lani. The home was very comfortable and kitchen was stocked well. We liked the ability to park in the one car garage and having access to the beach chairs, beach towels, umbrellas, etc. Already looking forward to our next stay here!

I was there with my two girlfriends and this home was perfect! Location was perfect, close enough to Kona-but felt secluded enough to get out of the busyness. Property was immaculate and the grounds were stunning. The commuincaiton with the host/property management was on point-and I asked alot of questions. Very quick to respond. Well stocked kithcen and the bikes and beach items were very nice quality. I would definatly come back to this spot! The lap pool was a great bonus too!

The condo was really clean inside, but could use a good scrubbing outside as well as the screens and window gutters. The beds were extremely comfortable. The layout worked really well for us and the décor was really nice. The location was great with the pools right across the street. If the opportunity arises, we would definitely stay here again. We would recommend replacing the kitchen sink faucet as it does not move.

We had a fabulous stay at Naupaka@Kulalani Mauna Lani Resort. A lovely appointed property with absolutely everything needed for a perfect Hawaiian vacation. Bikes, coolers, snorkels, beach chairs, beach towels were in excellent condition. The GEM golf cart was an added bonus. We used the GEM to go shopping, out to dinner and to the beach club. There are 2 pools 2 spas and a workout room a short walk from the condo. These are used by the Kulalani complex and were not crowded. The beach at Mauna Lani was absolutely perfect, with chairs in the shade, showers, restrooms and a cafe. A wonderful sand beach with great snorkeling. It was so nice we spent all of our beach days there. Ralph and Pricillia were perfect host, always available to answer any questions about the property or the area. We have already told several friends about this property. I am sure we will be back. Aloha and Mahalo Ralph. All the best Farrar and Cullen

My family absolutely loved this stay. From the oversized sofa to the endless beach supplies, it was perfect for our family vacation. The location within the complex was right next to the pool gate which made it very easy to get right to swimming. Our host had left things like salt and pepper, oil, laundry detergent, etc which made it very easy to cook and clean as needed. I would absolutely rent this condo again!

Very satisfied with the property's location and condition. Attention is given to every small detail, just to make your stay perfect. Close to the best beaches on the island. Very unsatisfied with the property's contact person. Not very nice on the phone and denied our request for 1 additional day, regardless that the house was available. The owners should consider that.

My wife and I booked this last minute as the Maui fires diverted us. The place was clean and very comfortable. It is in a gated neighborhood about a half mile from the Fairmont Orchid. All Hawaii beaches allow public access so we used the bikes from the house to ride to the beach daily. The kitchen was perfect with all the items we needed to cook meals daily. The market is about a 3 minute bike ride down the road. We enjoyed brewing Kona coffee daily at the condo. The master bedroom was quiet and spacious with a nice bathroom. This was a perfect spot if we had brought our kids. The neighborhood pool was warm and an easy walk across the driveway. Our only complaint would be the snorkel gear googles were so scratched, if you want to snorkel any of the close by bays, you'd probably want to rent. We used the soft cooler for the beaches. You have everything you need for a comfortable stay and we'd definitely recommend for small families.

We had a wonderful stay in this lovely villa during the last week of August. The property manager was amazing— hustled to accommodate us after our prior rental fell through, was friendly, communicative and professional. The property itself is on an exceptionally pretty lot, surrounded by flowering trees and very private. The unit was very clean, well appointed, had comfortable beds. The garage is filled with beach chairs, toys, bikes, snorkeling gear, everything you might need at the beach. It is located about 1/4 mile from a wonderful grocery market that has a variety of delicious food and necessities. We would stay again in a heartbeat—and look forward to our next visit. Thank you for sharing your wonderful villa with us!

Great property and management service. Spacious interior and very clean. My only complain is parking is a premium as they isn’t enough outside spaces you have to park away from the unit if your suv can’t fit into the compact car garage.

This place is beautiful inside and out. Every detail has been well thought out and it is clear that the owner takes pride in this home. My teenage sons could not get a bough of the yard—perfect for their passing game practices and my adult daughter loved being out on the lanai. As a chef, the kitchen had everything one could possibly need to prepare anything from a quick snack to a fancy meal. Enjoyed every minute of our stay.

This was a little slice of paradise in Hawaii. We loved our stay and would most definitely return again. The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen was a dream to cook in, the towels were soft and it was a quiet neighborhood too.

We’ve stayed in other complexes in Mauna Lani and love the resort. This was our first time staying in Kulalani. The pools and fitness center in the complex are fantastic and we used them often. The condo was great and worked well for our family. Small things like having more silverware and glasses and some kind of bakeware in the kitchen would be helpful.

We have been staying at Mauna Lani for over 14 years and have stayed at many different condos and houses. This home has been by far the nicest two bedroom we have ever stayed in. The unit is immaculate and beautifully decorated. Ralph was a joy to work with. The resort cart is an added bonus and the best way to get around the resort. Access to the private beach club and Napua restaurant makes for an amazing week and relaxing vacation. I would highly recommend this home and we will be back.

Lots of room for our family of 6 to hangout. The kitchen and grill were great amenities to help keep food costs down. The beach access was the best part of this place and the beach equipment was another bonus! Check out requirements were easy too. The master suite was fantastic. The pool was a big hit with the kids and the property grounds were well manicured. I didn't like that I had to download an app to communicate with the property management. Although, they did call to make sure we were settled and if we had any questions. On the surface the house was clean but I did have to wipe down most of the doors from dirty finger prints and clean out the hair out of the washing machine. The carpet needs a good washing soon too.

If we were to go back to the Big Island again I would definitely see if this property was available.

My daughter and I were able to make a quick getaway to my former home of the island of Hawai'i. Though I was familiar with the Mauna Lani Resort area, I was not familiar with this specific property. Once we pulled in, I knew we had made the right choice. This condo went above and beyond our expectations. It was absolutely beautiful and every single detail was well thought-out. Directions and suggestions were clear. All necessities and a TON of extras were included. We just wandered around in awe and quickly realized that some of our plans to go out would be canceled in order to stay in and around the condo. We didn't want to leave but are hoping it is available once again when we return.

Our stay at this property was great & all the communication leading up to it from Kona Coast Vacations the property manager was awesome. They made the checking and access seamless. The home is nice, very well appointed, and clean. No complaints because the following two things did not cause us any real issue but will mention because some might find it annoying. The home does have a single car garage however it was virtually impossible to get a car into it. The arch/builder made them too small for other than a compact car or golf cart(s). Therefore us and other renters in adjacent units were competing for the two guest spots associated with the 4 homes in that lot 8. When the spots were full as we came and went, we just parked at the pool/fitness lot which always had room and was not an issue. The other minor annoyance with 802 was the water pressure. It was very low, to the point that only one shower could be used at a time and you had to be sure to not have the washer or dishwasher on at same time. I did message the property manager the 1st night and they did respond immediately offering to send a maintenance person out next day however we chose to just deal with it. I was thinking it might have been the same for all units and perhaps they dial the water pressure back during the summer months for water conservation due to the high fire danger.....which as we know being from CA is real concern. Again overall the home and the property management group are great.

Excellent location with access to private beach club and a black sand beach close by with great snorkeling. The unit is exceptionally clean, well stocked for cooking. The garage has bikes, and all the beach gear one needs. It is very quiet and as title says tranquil. When we return to Big Island, this will be our first choice to stay

Oh, let me tell you about this amazing villa we rented through VRBO! It was like finding a hidden gem! The best part was having access to the beach club - we practically lived there during our whole vacation. The sandy beach and crystal-clear waters were just what we needed! The villa was located in this really nice community, and as soon as we got there, we could see how well they take care of the place. It was clean and cozy - you could tell the owners put some real love into it. And guess what? They had a BBQ grill, which was a total game-changer for us! We had so much fun grilling and having tasty meals together as a family. It was just so convenient and made the whole experience even better. What I really appreciated was how clean and tidy everything was inside the villa. No complaints at all - it was super well-maintained. Oh, and thank goodness for the AC! It worked like a charm and kept us cool when it got hot outside. But wait, there's more! Amy, the property manager, was so awesome. Anytime we had a question or needed something, she was right there to help us out. Super responsive and friendly - it made the whole rental process a breeze. So, if you're looking for a great beach vacation with a cozy villa, this is the spot! Trust me, you won't regret it. We're already planning to go back next year - that's how much we loved it!

We wanted a place to relax that was close to the beach and had everything close by. We couldn't have made a better choice. The rental is in a gated community with beautiful landscaping and a beautiful pool right behind it. The rental had all the beach gear you need to include chairs and an umbrella. Weade use of those items when we went to the private gated beach you get access to when staying here. All I can say is we will definitely be back to stay here again. The house was perfect for our family and was super clean and comfortable. Amazing property in an amazing area of Hawaii. PERFECT!

Beautiful property and very convenient location to amenties as well as our other family members. Loved the access to the private beach club and the beach toys and bikes. Cleanliness of the unit was so so. Upon arrival the floor was still full of dirt, food crumbs etc. and living room furniture desparatly needs to be cleaned. Overall though unit was great and communication with property owners and management company was wonderful.

Condo looked exactly like the photos. It is a great location and has bikes to ride and boogie boards to use, which was very fun. We had a great stay!

We enjoyed staying in this unit that had everything needed to go to the beach or cook a meal at home. The property is perfectly located close to the beautiful pools and fitness centre, and within walking distance to the beach and restaurants.

Our family of four loved this condo. The kids had their own room with two twin beds (sort of a detached king), with a huge ensuite bathroom, and mom and dad had the same arrangement with king bed and walk in closet upstairs. Not one but two lanai. Didn't use the BBQ but ate every meal out there. Kitchen was perfect. Lots of room, lots of equipment. In all we just really liked the layout, the yard was beautiful, the garage was handy, and outdoor parking was easy. Having pool access was a huge perk as well. The pool is really nice, and just a short walk away. We only used the kids pool, but there is also an adults-only lap pool, and a gym. The grounds are phenomenal. Good location, too! The nearby shops at Mauna Lani are a work in progress, not as rented-up as Queens or Kings shops...but we made use of the grocery store, Juice 101 and the coffee/breakfast next to it, and the Tommy Bahama restaurant was really good...wasn't sure what to expect from a clothes-branded-restaurant, but was very pleasantly surprised. Mauna Lani beach club was really nice, glad we had access to it. And the property manager was quite responsive and pleasant as well. We'd definitely recommend!

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!

Just came back from spending a week on the Big Island. We had a wonderful time and loved this unit. It was the perfect size for a family of 5. It had everything we needed, and Larry was very responsive and helpful! We’ll be back!

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!

The property is quite spacious and two couples could easily stay and have enough privacy. The location was great for our needs. The master bedroom is large with a chest of drawers so you can unpack. There is also a walk-in closet. The master bathroom has two sinks with cabinets/drawers and a large shower and separate tub. As other reviewers have noted, some things have seen better days and could be replaced (stained carpeting, some broken blinds, master bed), but nothing that should keep you away. Enjoy! Hawaii is definitely paradise.

This home was even better and more impressive than the photos! We stayed with our two kids (8 and 9) for 10 days and loved it. Check-in/check-out was seamless and easy, the home and kitchen was stocked with everything we needed. The house was spotless when we arrived. The pool was AMAZING and our kids were obsessed. The beds were so comfortable. If I could improve anything, it would just be for better water pressure, but that didn't lessen our enjoyment of the stay! Would definitely return and stay here again.
