We stayed here for a long weekend with my young adult and teenage children, as well as my brother and sister-in-law. We had plenty to do with access to the beach/beach club and the pool at the condo complex. The snorkeling was great at the beach. It was close enough to Kona to enjoy some activities down then, then it was nice to return to the peace and quiet. I would absolutely stay here again.
We have stayed at a number of places on the Big Island and this was by far our favorite. The condo had enough room to accommodate four adults and two children. What really made this condo stick out was the access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club and how kid friendly it was.
Every morning we would head over to the Beach Club where there was ample parking and numerous beach chairs. Once at the beach club you could play in the water or snorkel in the bay. In our opinion, this was some of the best snorkeling on the island, and the condo provided a number of snorkeling masks for use.
As discussed before, this condo is very kid friendly. They had plastic food trays, plastic cups, toddler forks, highchair, baby gate, and a pack-n-play. There were also numerous children's toys in the condo and sand toys for use at the beach. Luckily our kids were old enough that they were able to sleep in the two twin beds in the loft.
Beach toys for the adults included beach chairs you could wear on your back, boogie boards, pool noodles, ice chests (medium, and large), a beach umbrella, and a beach wagon.
The kids also loved the pool which was right across from the condo. It was great for kids since the depth was only around 4 feet and there was a waterfall that they can play under. It was a great place to go in the evening.
We tried to think of a negative thing to say but we were not able to think of anything. Would highly recommend it and look forward to returning again!
We used to stay near Kona & walk out to Mauna Lani Beach several times during past stays. My daughter has stayed at the Palms before & so we booked this condo for ourselves & 4 others for our children & their families, I liked this condo best of all. Very nice environment. We had views of pretty plants & volcanic rock. It was near the pool but we weren’t looking directly at it. I loved the kitchen setup & would like to remodel our kitchen like this one. It was very peaceful & quiet.
Took the entire family (4 teenagers) to Hawaii for our vacation this summer. This unit had everything you need to have a great time. Unit had plenty of space for our girls and boys. The kitchen was well equipped and outdoor patio had an excellent grill with exhaust for grilling. Beds were comfortable and well maintained. Unit was spotless and came with a washer & dryer with detergent for laundry. In the garage, we had umbrellas, chairs, and snorkel gear to enjoy at the beach club which has great snorkeling. It was like swimming in an aquarium, we saw turtles most days. Mauna Lani is a great resort with two excellent and beautiful golf courses. Also the shops were close to the unit and walkable. It is only 30 minutes away from the Kona airport. Barb was and excellent host with suggestions and very responsive to our questions. We took several day trips during the week to see all the spots on the big island and even a day trip to Honolulu. We all had a great time and look forward to going back.
Perfect location to the Beach Club, everything you need to cook a meal for your family on the stove or on the bbq grill outside. Even had chairs and umbrellas to use at the Beach Club because the cabanas are reserved pretty early. I will definitely inquire to stay here again when I'm in the area.
Thank you for a lovely time here! The house was very clean and organized and had everything we needed and more! I highly recommend this house for a relaxing vacation!
Our family has been lucky enough to stay at this beautiful condo a few times now and it never ever disappoints. It has everything you need for the beach and all the comforts of home. Beautiful spot near the pool but still private. A short wonderful walk to the beach. We couldn’t ask for more. Thank you for sharing your home!!
This place was perfect and the location was great! The owners had everything we needed there and more, from laundry detergent to body wash to spices! The place was clean and comfortable to stay in. We would definitely stay there again!
We had a wonderful stay! We were two adults, and 3 teenage girls. Barbie was quick to answer our questions, and provided good feedback on navigating the area. The condo is fully stocked with everything we needed to enjoy our vacation, and we made good use of the snorkeling gear and beach chairs. The location is great for exploring the island, and I would definitely return!
The Condo was clean and well supplied. The kids loved the Beach Club Beach to snorkel and just float around. Hapuna Beach is close and is a top beach anywhere in the world. Overall it was a fantastic vacation and celebration of my daughters accomplishment.
We loved the location. It was private and yet close to a fantastic private access beach. The snorkeling at the Muana Lani Beach Club is worth staying alone. Of course, a full functioning, well stocked kitchen made life easier and less expensive. We will keep this property in mind for future trips. Thanks to the owners for the use of the property.
Overall a wonderful experience! The pool and walking trails are near by as well as the swimming and snorkeling beach. The home is well appointed and we enjoyed our stay!
We initially choose this unit for it's access to private Mani Lani Beach Club and couldn't be happier. We spent the majority of our time at the beach and the rest of our time in the pool. The only thing that put a damper in our stay was getting yelled at when we were playing in the pool because the our kids were being 'too loud' while playing Marco Polo. To be fair, it does ask that you try to be quiet and courteous since residences are close to the pool. We did our best to keep it down in the pool area after that point, but it would have been nice to have some consistency as we frequently heard other kids screaming at the pool from within our unit throughout our stay. Other than that everything was fantastic. The kitchen was stocked with spices which was nice, and having in unit laundry was a great feature as well. If you get a chance, take the short walk from this unit over to the Petroglyph park and take the trail down through the lava and fish ponds to the beach. This was one of our kiddos favorite things to do as they loved the Egret tree and looking for Eels in the ponds.
Beautiful property, FYI 35 min drive into town, there are shops on property for groceries & light snacks. Private beach very nice
Overall a wonderful experience! The pool and walking trails are near by as well as the swimming and snorkeling beach. The home is well appointed and we enjoyed our stay!
We loved the location and the access to Napua Beach. The house was perfect for our group of four adults and 2 children. The sunset views from the balcony were stunning and each night we walked over the the Mauna Lani pools to see the fish, eels, herons and cattle egret (including their nests with babies). Wonderful stay! Thank you for everything.
The perfect spot for a mini family reunion.
Great for our family!
This was a very clean and comfortable condo with great views of the back lanai. The pool area was beautiful (and close) and the walk to the beach area has plenty to see including lava caves and fish ponds as well as a very nice sand beach. It was great to have snorkel gear in the garage. We definitely took advantage of that.
Eating in the resort restaurant was pretty expensive so we grilled a lot of meals at the condo. The grill was right on the lanai so we didn't have to leave to a common area to do so.
All in all, a good experience!
Beautiful little enclave lush with vegetation, flowers and birds. Very comfortable and roomy condo. Nice layout. Really in need of new carpeting/ flooring though. Loved the small beach you can walk to. Great beach for snorkeling. Lovely pool/hot tub. Two of the most spectacular beaches just a short ( 5 min) drive North on the highway. Mauni Lani Resort very nice as well. Great outdoor restaurant on the property with fabulous food and sunsets. Highly recommend.
This whole resort is so elegant! The photos don't even do it justice. It feels very private... lush... inviting... And the beach is amazing. We often took the 3/4 mile walk to the beach instead of driving so that we could look at the history and nature along the path. The pool across from our condo was a Garden of Eden with a waterfall. The condo had lots of good beach towels, which we used a lot. I'd like to return some day.
Really enjoyed our stay. The house is really nice with comfortable furniture and beds. The kitchen and outdoor grill are fantastic. The house is very well stocked for cooking. All the beach gear including snorkeling is provided in the garage. Bikes in the picture are not available for use. The only minor issue with our stay was noise from the upstairs neighbors. The morning they were packing to head out woke us up very early with loud footsteps above us. That was the only time noise was an issue, never heard the cleaning crew or the next guests that moved in.
Overall a great place, I would highly recommend it to others and would stay there again.
Nice clean condo. Perfect size for us. Grounds and pool were spectacular.
Very well stocked and maintained condo in a quiet complex in the Mauna Lani area. You get access to the mauna Lani beach club beach and parking which made beach days with our toddler a breeze. We look forward to repeat stays here. Barbra was responsive and ensured everything went smooth.
We loved staying here with our family including our 9 month old! The unit was well provisioned and included crucial things for traveling with small kids like a pack and play, high chair, and even beach toys and floaties! It really made it feel as if we were staying in our own home. We would enthusiastically stay here again next time we come to the Big Island!
Such a homey place. You can tell the family to owns the place truly love it. It's in such nice shape and comfortable. Everything you need and then some. This is our 4th unit at Palm Villas and it's one of the best. Staying in this unit with the view of the lava reserve is SO calming. We always dream of the moments we spend just quiet and relaxed on the lanai. Thank you for the perfect Hawaiian time
We had a very pleasant stay at this property. It is well equipped and clean. When our plans changed they were responsive and able to add a night to our reservation. I was pleasantly surprised to find a coffee grinder. Of course the area is known for Kona coffee so being able to grind beans was great. I personally love the Mauna Lana area because of the fish Ponds and beach club. I love walking the Ponds at sunrise and the beach club is just ideal. Amazing snorkeling right off the beach easy for all ages. Beach chairs, a restaurant for lunch and cocktails. This property was an easy walk to both areas but also came with a pass to the gated beach club parking. That is key when hauling snorkel gear and stuff for a family.
The only draw back was so many restaurants were closed in the Mauna Lani area...I suspect hit by COVID. Many new places say coming soon. We made good use of the grocery store just downnthevroad.
Private and quiet. Close to everything. Access to Napuas restaurant and beach club is invaluable.
We always have a wonderful time. Our annual staycation.
Need to take care of the fire ants around jacuzzi. Got bitten second time in two years.
The condo was as listed and more. Beds were comfortable and there was plenty of space for us and our teen kids. The garage is filled with everything you could want for a beach or pool day - chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, noodles, cooler on a roller. Lots of great places to walk around, very convenient location. The owner was very responsive anytime we reached out, and she was very friendly and kind. Would stay here again for sure.
From the time we drove up till the time we left, we had nothing negative to say about this place! Plenty of room! We loved that every room had its own bathroom. The condo was absolutely beautiful and perfect. The views were stunning. We utilized the beach chairs, boogie board, and coolers that were provided. Those little touches were so thoughtful! We also visited the Beach Club a couple times, which was wonderful! There is a small shopping center nearby which we visited a few times. We were a few minutes drive to Waikoloa Beach which had a little bit bigger grocery store. Overall, this place worked out so well for us! We'd stay here again!
This is a beautiful condo in a great location. M
The property was even better than described. It was very clean (one of my most important criteria), was well stocked with useful items, and was beautiful. Mahalo, David, for your hospitality!
We loved our stay! The property was very clean and perfect size for 4 adults & 2 teens. We loved the pool for those cloudy days not at the beach. Property contact person was very fast to answer any questions we had. Beach club access was convenient for those days we wanted to stay nearby. Would definitely return!
Located in a beautiful area of the island. Convenient to shopping. On-site pool and hot tub a plus. Private beach club is nearby, and my family enjoyed a whole day there. Food and service at beach restaurant was a plus.
We love going to the Palm Villas, overlooking the lava. This unit is large, clean and has the amenities we look for. Access to the beach club with the swimming and snorkeling there is the way to go!
Amazing place, sparkling clean, great communication with Manager. BUT - this complex has a very 65+ vibe and kids don't seem to be welcome. We got dirty looks and actually had someone come out to the pool to tell us to be quiet. We were throwing a ball. It was Spring break. This place is not for poolside fun - which is fine, but I wish this would have been shared in the listing. I would have stayed somewhere else, preserved the old folks' peace, and my kids wouldn't be made to feel bad for... being kids.
A lovely, quiet and peaceful 3 bedrm condo with a well equipped kitchen and a lovely lenai. Easy 5 minute drive to the Beach Club and 300 feet to the historic trailhead which winds down past lava tubes to the fish ponds. Easy parking, 2 bicycles, walk 100' to the pool. Tons of towels, beach chairs...the hosts have added many nice touches.
Enjoyed our stay at this property. Everything was clean and we appreciated the beach chairs, flippers, cooler, etc that were available for use. We wished there was a BBQ on the lanai. We tried to use the common BBQ at the pool area but the BBQ was not working. Pool area was lovely. However, it is definitely an adult pool - while swimming with our kids and laughing, we were told to keep the noise down which we found disappointing (this was around 5:30pm). Aside from that, stay was wonderful and we loved having access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club!
We had a great stay in this condo for our April spring break. It is clean, the beds are comfortable and it's very quiet. The kitchen is well stocked and the garage has all you need for the beach. You can access both the Mauna Lani Beach Club beach and the Mauni Lani resort by the beautiful path through the lava fields and fish ponds. The parking pass is useful to save time and energy and, as long as you get there early, there is plenty of parking and beach chair access. In our experience, the beach chairs filled up by 9:00 or 10am. The beach at the Mauna Lani Beach Club is calm, sandy, protected and has easy snorkeling with an abundance of fish.
The Mauna Lani area is a wonderful home base for checking out all the gorgeous beaches in the area. The Palm Villas neighborhood is landscaped beautifully and Foodland (which has excellent poke!) is just a minute away. Easy check in/out and very responsive host and owner.
Thanks for a wonderful time!
We loved our stay here. The location is fantastic!
The condo was perfect for our group (grandma, couple, kids (11 & 14). Really well stocked both in the kitchen and in the garage. The girls loved being able to spill out the backyard directly into the pool. The walk to the beach was very easy (15 minutes for rabble), although a little exposed for some on the tired march home. But it was worth it since we were greeted by sea turtles literally steps into the water. The location gave us perfect access for what we wanted to explore. The parking access at the beach club was great. Hāpuna beach was fantastic and just a short drive. Would definitely recommend.
We had a great time at this property! The home and location were beautiful and we really enjoyed exploring the grounds.
The only recommendations I’d make are as follows: more dish towels (there’s only 2), and more bath towels (only one per person). Otherwise the home was well stocked and very comfortable.
We would go here again, if we had the chance. It was great. I guess the only thing that would be nice to fix would be to get the knives sharpened for other folks who use the kitchen as much as we did :)
Best accommodations ever.
We really enjoyed our stay at David’s place. He was extremely responsive and helpful with anything we needed. Nice quiet place. Easy access to a terrific beach. Would definitely stay here again.
We've stayed in a few communities within the Mauna Lani area, and this property met all of our expectations for the area. Only minor inconvenience is the lack of a grill on the lanai of unit (mentioned in other comments), but we were able to utilize the well maintained grill located in the common area near pool/clubhouse.
Very well furnished and equipped. Great location for easy walk to trails, beach , shops. Nice lava fields private view. We had 2 adult couples and 11 year old grandson. Plenty of room
The only suggestions are to get more lights/ lamps in bedrooms, bathroom door privacy, and fix older ceiling fans and vents.
Very nice condo, community and neighbors. Had a very relaxing and fun stay! Thank you for sharing this awesome place with us.
Great location, close to beaches including access to the Mauna Lani beach club. Spacious house with all the amenities including beach towels, beach chairs, sand toys, snorkeling gear and more. The location within the Villas is perfect as well right near the pool which was quiet and picturesque. We had a great stay and would definitely recommend!
The unit was clean and spacious with the conveniences of home. I would definitely stay here again. The beach club was an added bonus.
A wonderful place to stay. The beach is within easy walking distance and just beautiful. If you're not into cooking during your vacation, this is the place. There's no stove but there is a microwave and a hot plate. Some of the dishes weren't entirely clean. The people who stay there wash them so maybe they aren't as picky as I am. The owners left us a King Cake bread pudding which was delicious and there were fresh flowers on the little kitchen table. We've been here before and we'll be staying here again!!
We rented this property for a month long stay in February. The unit was clean and well maintained in a great location.
Took a chance on this unrated rental and very glad we did.
Location was very good since we intended on playing the golf courses at Mauna Lani. Good locations for touring the North Kohalo area along with Waimea.
The house was just as expected. It was a wonderful property and house. The beach club was perfect for our family. Many of the beached were closed due to high surf, but we were always able to go and enjoy the beach club. Would definitely recommend
Wonderful stay. The private beach club access is fabulous!
This unit is well organized and stocked. The owners take pride in this unit and the cleaning staff does a great job. We would definitely rent this unit again.
We had an enjoyable stay. The place was clean and as advertised.
The floors were dirty. We removed our shoes at the door and then had filthy feet. Within the extensive check in/check out rules and expectations was the indication that there was a discount at the "private" golf course. That was not accurate. The bath towels were old and scratchy. It's a lovely location and the unit is upscale. However the rules are onerous.
This condo is a great location for the excellent snorkeling at Makaiwa Bay. It's a nice walk through the Manoku fishponds to get to the "beach club." Of course the beach is open to anyone, the "beach club" just allows use of the lounge chairs - no towels or other services offered. There are some shade trees and a cafe.
The Mauna Lani resort area is designed with ample space between different developments (e.g. The Palms, The Terraces, the hotel, etc). The view from this condo lanai is of undisturbed lava flows with a glimpse of the ocean beyond - and even Maui if the air is clear enough. Very relaxing and beautiful.
This condo unit has its own locked garage, so you can safely leave all you snorkel kit, bicycles etc in the garage. The owner has left some snorkel kit, boogie boards, etc.
Casual cycling in the area is nice - but as usual for Hawaii, there is not much signage and the condo does not supply an area map. Go to the hotel reception and ask for a useful map of the resort, and then be prepared to cycle on paths that look like they might just be for golf carts - and maybe are, never figured it out. Plenty of cycling outside the resort, especially if you don't mind cycling on a bike lane adjacent to a busy highway.
The condo itself is nice in overall appearance, with comfortable beds and good linens, but the details are the problem. The carpet is stained and not stretched correctly anymore. The lanai floor and rails haven't been cleaned for some time so are grubby. The kitchen supplies are well used and offer the usual random assortment of odd things that you find in a vacation rental, but never the thing you really want to find (in this case, a sharp knife, a plastic cutting board for onions, rather than the fancy wood one that should only be used for bread. And salad spinner, see comment below about water.). It did have a nice rice maker, coffee maker, electric kettle, toaster and wine fridge. The main refrigerator was broken during our stay - another fridge was already stuffed in a spot by the dining table, which was inconvenient but acceptable for our short stay. It looked like the main fridge had been broken for some time already - you might want to ask about the appliances before booking. The stove is radiant heat, which is not easy to cook on if you are used to induction or gas.
The tap water in this area is heavily chlorinated. You might prefer to bring a Brita filter, or buy drinking water.
Had a great time. Unit was very well stocked and maintained. Beach club was great. Wish we could have stayed longer.
Lovely area. Great beach club access!
Well equipped kitchen, comfortable beds, good variety of beach equipment, very clean and quiet. It's nice to have access to the nearby beach club and the restaurant was excellent. We would definitely come back.
We have stayed at the Palm Villas several times. This particular unit was spacious and exceptionally well equipped with beach gear, towels, linens, and kitchen equipment. Our three generation family was very comfortable here and loved the location to the pool.
Palm Villas E-21 sits on the edge of a nature reserve with gorgeous sunset skies that silhouette the numerous palm trees that surround the ancient Hawaiian fishponds which are only a 7 minute walk away along the nearby pedestrian friendly paved trail - from dawn to sunset, the air is filled with joyous birdsong of the various bird species that live in and frequent the nature reserve -- another 5 minute walk beyond the fishponds is the fabulous and lifeguarded Mauna Lani Beach Club - gorgeous turquoise water safe for swimmers and snorkelers of all ages and skills -- the condo is professionally maintained with updated modern appliances and well stocked kitchen utensils -- the mattresses in all three bedrooms are very comfortable -- David is a very responsive and attentive host and his property management team , Karlynne and Zach, couldn't be more professional and welcoming -- the swimming pool in Palm Villas, which has a small and refreshing waterfall, is surrounding by a lush and mature tropical garden with plenty of shade for quiet outdoor afternoon reading -- Palm Villas is a tranquil and beautiful property to call home while visiting the Big Island -- we cannot wait to return next year
My husband and I absolutely loved this apartment. Gorgeous natural light, perfect location for restaurants and bars, and super close to the lake and opera house.
The apartment kitchen was VERY well-equipped with everything you’d need to cook a meal or just enjoy your coffee and wine. The entire apartment was spotless, and we were also relieved to have a washer/dryer and detergent in the middle of a long trip.
The only thing I wished we’d had was a sofa or larger comfortable seating area, but that’s only because we ended up having a friend visit and would have liked all relax on a couch together instead of sitting around the dining table. Absolutely nothing to complain about though, just something to consider if you plan to have any guest join you during your stay.
We’d absolutely stay here again if returning to Zürich. The communication with the rental company was superb, and every question we had was answered very promptly. Lovely apartment in a lovely city!
We’ve been to this area of a Hawaii a few times. It’s great for families with small children. We always enjoy the beach club. The condo was nice and well equipped. We enjoyed our stay.
Totally enjoyed our stay at Richard's Palm Villas condo. Very well stocked for a family, with toddler friendly items, including a high chair, travel crib and baby gate for the somewhat steep entry stairs. Quality kitchen appliances and dishes, etc. Lanai was wonderful for breakfasts and grilling. Loved the landscaping and the use of a parking pass for the Beach Club. Check out instructions were clear and not overly difficult.
This is the second time staying here and we always love our time at Richard and Karee’s place. The location is perfect with a nice walk to the beach, wonderful pool and hot tub, and easy access to the beach club. The condo is always clean and well stocked. We hope stay again in the future.
We loved the property and the location. We loved the private beach club with the cabanas and loungers and the lovely pool area! We loved the provided beach chairs, sand toys for the kids, coolers and umbrellas. We loved the bbq and enjoyed many meals on the lanai. The place was very nice and clean and even came with very nice Hawaiian treats which we thought was a really nice touch! The kitchen had lots of pots and pans plates and cutlery but almost no mixing bowls or Tupperware or places to save leftovers or things to pack food in to the beach but overall still nice. A few other little things to make this an even better stay would be a water cooler with a 5 gallon jug of water as we found the water to be not very tasteful and had to buy water. There was 1 glass for each person so we ended up buying some plastic cups we could bring down to the pool area and beach. The fridge was not working when we arrived but they were excellent and brought us coolers and ice for the first day and we had a rental fridge the next day so that was a bit of a headache at first but all worked out in the end. Overall, we had an amazing time and the place was perfect for our family of 6. We would recommend this place.
SIMON PIERRE G.
We stayed here for 2 weeks and were very impressed with this property! It’s very quiet and clean you can walk or drive to a great snorkelling beach. Close to everything you need to see. Overall a great holiday.
This is the 5th property where we have stayed in the area - definitely at the top of the list - great space - very comfortable, quiet and private plus a really nice pool area. Enjoyed being in a smaller complex with close access to the fish ponds and beach.
Excellent property but rules don't allow kids to play on grass or in pool. Must be quiet.
The condo was perfect for our group of 6. It was so easy to load up the provided beach gear ( loved having the wagon), drive just a few minutes and be at a wonderful beach. The nearby beach is calm and great for snorkeling. The condo had everything we needed. Our kids loved to walk around the complex daily to check on all the fruit trees. As a great bonus we had a perfect view of fireworks at the Mauna Lani resort on New Years Eve.
Perfect for a quiet few days away from town. Pool was great, beach access was also fantastic. Easy walking around the grounds and overall was great. Would definitely look to the Mauna Lani area again.
Ideal location, and good bones to property. Carpet was worn and looked a little dirty. Many the bath towels were also worn. Very few dishes available to cook.
Great location, close to most things but serene and quiet -- away from the madness of Kona. The condo is spacious and well-equipped. Very comfortable for six people. You will just have to sort out who gets the master suite upstairs with its own private lanai!
Perfect location for a wonderful Mauna Lani vacation. Condo has everything you will need for a great pool, beach and local adventure vacation. Close to the beach club and grocery shopping, the location can’t be beat. Love the pool!!
The condo was very comfortable and relaxing with beautiful grounds and nice pool. Our host was great and responded quickly to ?’s we had. It was a great stay.
A beautiful condo in the perfect gated community. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here and will hopefully be back!
We have stayed at Mauna Lani several times. H1 in Palm Villas was a superb unit for our family with adult children. We appreciated the open main floor for hanging out. The three bedrooms & full bathrooms worked well for our crew. The quietness and beautiful grounds created a relaxing ambiance.
We will certainly stay in this unit again. Mahalo.
Enjoyed our stay - nice unit with easy walk to the beach.
Had an issue with a broken towel rack that they responded to right away
Had difficulties with the front gate but it always ended up okay - just had to enter it multiple times before it decided to work.
Disappointed that there wasn’t recycling
The condo is beautifully designed and comfortable. Easy access to a great snorkeling beach with beach restaurant. Great pool and hot tub for the complex. Laundry machines a definite plus. Hosts were accommodating and helpful. We really enjoyed our stay.
This stay was wonderful! The unit is stocked with everything a person could need. The convenience and privacy are a plus. Don't hesitate in booking
We had a wonderful time and very much enjoyed our stay.
My husband and I rented the property with another couple for a week, at the beginning of December. It is a large, beautiful house, very clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, with a well equipped kitchen. It is a 15mn walk from the beach, where we went snorkeling before having lunch at the beach club. It is a perfect spot for a relaxing vacation, on the beach or the large lanai at the house, which is in a quiet residential area. Multiple restaurants are just a few minutes drive away if you do not feel like cooking.
Make sure they have replaced the carpets and blinds before you book this place. And, ask about a really thorough cleaning. The shower floor and walls, especially and dusting (particularly the ceiling fans!). The Palm Villas are the best and this one had the best view.
We stayed for then entire month of November and really enjoyed everything about the area and this unit. The unit is very well equipped in the kitchen, bathrooms and everything you need for visits to the beach. We became members at the fitness facility next door and our group used the facility every day. The gym included peleton bikes and the swimmers used the lap pool. Tennis and pickleball were favourites and we were able to participate in a pickleball tournament. Great active vacation for all. Thanks David for the use of your place. It’s wonderful.
We were looking just to relax and enjoy a low key Hawaiian vacation. This condo provided everything for that. The condo is very clean and well kept and furnished and was always an enjoyable place to return to after going to the beach. The complex is well maintained and quiet which is what we wanted. The pool and hot tub were FABULOUS. We did use the private beach access and enjoyed our day there as well. The condo comes with everything you need for the beach as we did also venture out to some surrounding beaches as well. You'll find a great market near by and Tommy Bahama's happy hour and can catch the sunset at the Fairmont. We were a mix of three adults and two teens and we never felt crowded. We all agreed we'd like to return next year as the big island is our favorite. The only thing is the garage is on the smaller side so backing in a larger rental can be tricky for some. I'm used to bigger cars. We had a mini van. If that is the case you can request a parking placard to park on the street. I wish I was there now. Check in was a breeze by the way. We had no trouble with the below neighbor mentioned in other reviews. Thank you.
This was a lovely condo in a great location. Proximate to great beaches. The pool was an added bonus!
This was exactly what we were looking for. A home base for our vacation with all the amenities and necessities to make our stay perfect. This property will not disappoint.
We had 5 in our family with lots of space for all of us to feel comfortable. The pool and beach club are outstanding. A little grocery store down the road so you can cook in or grill on back deck.
We will be returning.
It was great location
We had a wonderful time and enjoyed the thoughtful touches immensely! Soaps, cleaning supplies, condiments and beach umbrellas all made for a smooth and comfortable stay. We hope to rent here again. Meredith was cheerful, accommodating and available for all of our last minute needs. We have already recommended to others while on the plane home.
We chose this because of Mauna Lani beach club access where we like to snorkel. Unit had everything we needed for blissful beach days and living.
The only problem we had was the TV set in bedroom. The sound was not good no matter how we reset it. But we don’t watch TV much so it wasn’t much of a problem.
We snorkeled every day at ML, two-step (best) Mauna Kea and had a great time.
Great location, great weather, snorkeling is the best at the beach club
Not a ding on condo: food prices at Mauna Lani Resort are ridiculous. Stay away go to the Fairmont parking is free food is great. Recommend the” Lobster” fried rice
Very nice condo and community that is well maintained. Pleasantly surprised by how nice the pool was. Would have been nice to have umbrellas at the pool. Just a suggestion for the hoa. I also enjoyed the shoreline trail that was right outside of the gate.
Only complaint about the condo is the remote was missing for the large ceiling fan so we had to run the ac more than usual.
We loved our stay. The home is beautiful! It was great to have the beach chairs and snorkel equipment. If you're looking to just hang out close to home this property is perfect! But it was quite a drive to do much of anything, ie night life and restaurant options. The reviews that I read did not show this. I was looking to be near the beach, which was nice but not necessary as there were plenty of other beach options on the island.
We loved this condo. Short drive to beach. Beautiful pool. The condo is very well appointed. The loft was a bit dusty, that was our only disappointment. But it was a very small one. This condo is a great value for the price.
We had to stay on the Island longer than planned and the host made the rental experience and need for extended stay easy and painless. The condo met our needs and is in a beautiful area.
We had a great stay here. The walks across lava fields, past fish ponds to a protected beach cove was the highlight. Beach equipment at David’s condo was a plus which allowed us to grab and go. All other necessary amenities were stocked and available. We all agreed we’d love to return.
Very nice property in terrific location. Lovely pool and landscaping. Comfortable house for 3 couples or family. Access to Mauni Lani Beach Club a huge plus. Property manager very responsive.
