Recent Mauna Lani Terrace Reviews

There was simply nothing I could critique about the property or the owner. The unit was by far the best outfitted unit I've rented. There were plenty of towels, soap, paper towels -- everything. The kitchen was stocked just like my own. The beds were incredibly comfortable, with plenty of extra blankets. The owner instructions were detailed and thoughtful. Which brings me to the owner -- I chose this unit over others because fellow travelers commented on Lauren in their reviews. I second it all! She was helpful, thoughtful and kind. Lauren was patient with my questions and made me feel like I was staying at a friend's home rather than a VRBO condo. From start to finish, this property and owner were wonderful!

The unit has potential to be very nice. The furnishings need up grading to include the kitchen. The electrical box for the microwave has to be a code viloation. The kitchen applicances are old. The wood trim and shutters are nice but need cleaning and re-oiling.stain. The carpeting is filthy.

This two bedroom property came well equipped with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The kitchen was well appointed with anything you need for cooking in the closets contained all you need to relax and enjoy the beach. Great property!

We had a terrific stay at Mauni Lani Terrace Condominiums. This was our first stay at Big Island in over 25 years and did not know what to expect. This unit is located very centrally to everything around the island. We did not have enough time to do everything but will have to come back soon. The Unit itself is well furnished with everything that you need for a short or extended stay. We absolutely would recommend this Unit.

Lovely location among the historic fish ponds with ocean view. Whale watching from the lanai was unbelievable. Quiet, restorative, and just what we needed. Highly recommend this condo.

The sunset views are nice and it’s an easy walk out to the beach - kitchen is well supplied and equipment is modern - decor is nice tiki style for hawaiin ambience
February 2024

This condo is perfect. Quiet, private and very comfortable. We spent much of our time on the lanai enjoying the views. Never needed the air conditioning -the ocean breeze and the fans kept everything very comfortable.

This condo met all my needs for an easy, truly enjoyable Hawaiian vacation! It's the best location I've found in years of visiting the Kohala coast: five minute walk to a sheltered beach cove with spectacular snorkeling; 12 minute drive to Hapuna Beach state park for waves and boogie boarding, restaurants within easy walking distance, grocery store and shops a 5 minute drive. The condos feel private and luxurious with grounds containing beautiful plants and birdlife. They are set back from the ocean but with no buildings or road in between - you feel like you have an expanse of beauty in front of you. There is a landscaped lagoon that reaches the lanai and in the distance palm trees and ocean. The condos are adjacent to ancient Hawaiian fish ponds and these are fascinating for observing birds and fishes. I took a number of scenic walks and there are places for biking too. I was able to easily speak with the owner and he was always gracious and helpful. In sum, I loved my experience in F102. It is well away from the hustle/bustle of the hotels and yet offers better amenities for a much better price. Highly recommended.

Lakeview Terrace is a nicely appointed, well located condo worth your consideration.

The Mauna Lani Terraces are perfectly situated on the ocean, with prime swimming and walking to the north and south. This unit is welcoming, comfortable and well appointed. It boasts two master suites, a washer and dryer, living room, dining room, and kitchen that let out onto the lanai where we spent many hours. The host, Daniel Crowe, is gracious and easy to work with. A property manager is available in case of problems. It's a joy to get here and hard to leave. We've stayed here a couple of times and hope to return for many more visits.

Mauna Lani Terrace is the ideal place to headquarter for the Kona-Kohala side of the big Island. The condo is perfectly set up, with a pass to close and lovely snorkel cove, easy access to the terraces’ pool, hotel, lovely walks, convenient grocery store and some good dining nearby especially local-owned Napus. Loved our stay … always too short!

It was a great stay for us. We loved the location. We were here for 11 nights. It was a typical VRBO. It’s clear from the photos that the unit hasn’t been updated in some time. I’m ok with that. The part that bothered me is the dishwasher might as well not be there. I have a Bosch dishwasher at home, so I was disappointed. Would stay here again especially if they get a Bosch dishwasher. We had a great time.

This condo in Mauna Lani was the best vacation experience we have ever had! We stayed for 3 weeks, which gave us enough time to see a lot of the natural beauty of the big island. The condo was the perfect home base. The location is great for day trips to volcanoes, hikes, the southernmost point, rainforests, ranches, etc. And you can easily walk to beautiful beaches, snorkeling, fish ponds, lava fields, petroglyphs, shopping, golf, restaurants, etc. The condo itself is even better than the photos. It is luxurious and beautifully decorated but also comfortable, cozy, and thoughtfully arranged. Finally, the owners are the most hospitable, welcoming, and attentive hosts we have ever had. They went out of there way to make our stay absolutely perfect!

Wonderful listing. We felt right at home as soon as we got in. We were so thankful after our daily expeditions to come back, sit in the beautiful condo and look out at the ocean. Thanks so much Dave and Sue for the stay!

Our family of four really enjoyed the Mauna Lani Terrace Condo for its spectacular location, ocean & fishpond views, and its quiet, peaceful ambiance. The condo is spacious and is well stocked with kitchen supplies. The only issue was cleanliness which could use improvement.

This is a high end condo in a high end quiet development. The unit was fully stocked (as much as any we’ve been in). Very close to grocery , dive shop, and coffee shop. The pool area was quiet, with separate wading pool and large hot tub. The grilling area is a short walk from the unit. Overall exactly what we wanted.

We had a great time at the Terrace Lagoons overlooking the fish lagoons. A shopping mall and grocery store is within a 10 min walk or 3 min drive. 5 star restaurants are within a 5 min walk or drive. Our place was clean and inviting and the check in process was easy because we watched the instructional videos that Lee provided to us. He was very easy to reach when we had questions. Everything you could possibly need is included in the property, the appliances and the air conditioning worked wonderfully! The walkways are pleasant for purposes of exercise. The pool area was beautiful and quiet. This was our first time staying at the Lagoons and will be sure to visit again in the future. Thank you to the owner Lee!

Beautifully appointed, kitchen is new and well-stocked with non-perishable items. View of the lagoon is stunning. The lanai is especially inviting and lovely. The walk to pool and the beach is short. We highly recommend this unit and hope to come back.

January 2024

The condo was lovely and was really well-stocked. We did by basic groceries, but the kitchen had olive oil, salt, pepper and spices and a full range of kitchen equipment (including baking pans!) and sharp knives! It's a very short walk to the Mauna Lani hotel with its restaurants and to a lovely, sheltered beach. The pool is well set up and everything is very, very clean. There's a Foodland in the complex (2 minute drive) and it's a very short drive to the lovely white sand beach at Hapuna state park. We came in at night and had to search a little to find the right building, but that was the only thing that was trouble.

We love the Mauna Lani Terraces. Amazing views! The new pool /bbq area is terrific. And you can’t beat the beach club. D201 is well located but not our favorite floor plan. Tiny kitchen! But beautiful view and very comfortable furnishings.

We liked this unit. Very complete kitchen. Linens could be refreshed. Bed was comfortable. Overall I’d stay here again but prefer units farther away from Auberge hotel. You can hear hotel events from the lanai.
Susanne L.

G201 is such a great fit for us, that we booked it again for 2024. We especially enjoyed the comfortable furniture on the lanai. We had trouble figuring out how to watch Apple TV, but we got it. Property manager was easy to communicate with, I’m sure she would have helped with the TV, if we had needed it. The mattress & sheets were amazingly comfortable. We didn’t see boogie boards or beach chairs anywhere but we didn’t care, and there was a good supply of nice beach towels. This was our second visit to the terraces. We love the location, the walkability to the beach club (& hotel for lunch), the pool is never crowded, the grounds are nicely maintained, and it’s quiet & peaceful.

Very nice 1 bedroom property with plenty of space; well furnished and well appointed; just as presented if not better. Great view and location. Very large lanai that was very enjoyable. Condo buildings are not well marked so a bit of trouble finding our building the first night in the dark. Key pad to enter the complex was also a bit difficult to locate in the dark. Once we were settled, had a great time.

Very much enjoyed the condo at Mauna Lani Terrace. Unit was well equipped and there was a lovely gift basket when we arrived. We walked everyday on the numerous walking trails, swam in the pool and at the beach and enjoyed the lanai morning and evening with coffee or glass of wine. I would highly recommend this unit and we are already talking about a return visit.

We were surprised how spacious the place was. The view was better than the pictures. The location of the condo was convenient to shopping, snorkel rentals, beach, grocery stores and restaurants. The condo had a book with recommendations for anything and everything you want to do. We would definitely rent and stay there again.

Very well-appointed condo with an upgraded kitchen and new appliances. Great new TV as well. Easy walk to the best snorkel beach, tennis/pickle ball and restaurants at the Auberge. Communication with owners/property manager was excellent throughout the process. Would definitely book again for a one-bedroom condo with a view.

We have stayed at many properties in the Mauna Lani area and this is a very close 2nd to the Hyatt Mauna Lani Point. Would have been 1st if it had a bigger / less shallow pool! Loved the location!

We enjoyed our stay at the condo and we’re pleased with the amenities of the property. It is a walk up, so a little difficult with luggage. The beach club and the pool were very nice as was the property for walking around. Condo was well furnished and comfortable. Communication was great with the owner

Many thanks to Joanne and Jasper for their wonderful hospitality. The Unit was perfect in every way. I only wish we could have stayed longer. I'm already preparing for next year's trip. *

It was my bad for not asking the owner how far of a walk the beach was. I assumed property was set up for easy beach access, as they said beachfront. Instead it was a bit of a walk around ponds on an asphalt path, with us carrying all our beach gear. Except for this misunderstanding, we enjoyed our time. The condo is very spacious and has everything you need for a lovely stay. Views are wonderful! A couple of things came up during our stay (because sometimes things happen). Nothing major and nothing that really affected our stay. Jasper and Joanne were quick to alert us and apologetic. Cathy, (the housesitter? on island manager?) stopped by one day as we were told she would. She was a joy to meet! All in all we would recommend, as long as you don't mind a bit of a walk to get to the beach.

Everything about the Mauna Lani Lagoon Terrace condo was great. The location allows easy access to the beach (5 minute walk) or pool (60-second walk), along with the rest of the Big Island (Kona, Mauna Kea, Volcanos...). The unit is quiet and comfortable (fans were great, never even thought about the AC), and it basically has every amenity that you could wish for. Everything in the kitchen is top-notch. Everything in the condo is top-notch! The lanai was a perfect space from early mornings through evenings. We'll definitely look for this condo again on our next trip to the Big Island.

This is a nice property with a great view and in a great location to take advantage of the beach club and the dining options at the Mauna Lani. All are within short walking distance.

Beautiful property and unit. Condo was perfectly appointed. Quick walk to the beach and morning walks around the fish ponds and along the ocean were second to none. Sunsets from the beach were fantastic. Hope to come back next year!

The best thing about the property was the view the walking around the fish ponds, the proximity to snorkeling the many fish in the water, It is south facing so AC is a must.
October 2023

Well located condo with great views in a quiet location. Well stocked and it shows the owners take pride in their ownership. Would not hesitate to stay their again!
