Nice town home. Mauna Lani is great. House well equipped in kitchen and beach gear. Few items need repair - barbecue and barbecue exhaust - eliminate old carpet (ok for rental)- but don't replace

Thank you Luba and Randy for a wonderful stay in your home! Everything we could ask for and more! The kitchen is fully stocked and large! Made for many wonderful meals- and the grocery store so close was a huge plus! Close to the beach which we drove to each day thanks to the passes that come with the home. Large bedrooms and family room, peaceful backyard and the home is in a perfect location. We loved every thing about this home and hope to be back next year!

We were in Hawaii for a friend's wedding over the holiday. I decided to extend the vacation for an extra week in Kona. What a beautiful home! Three large bedrooms, each en suite. The kitchen was a chef's dream. Fully stocked with every pot, pan and gadget needed to cook anything desired. The hot tub and pool were so convenient (be sure to start warming the hot tub 30 minutes before use). The beach was an easy drive. Lots of snorkeling gear and beach toys/chairs for you to use. No need to buy or bring your own. No regrets at all. We hope to return soon with friends.

Beautiful home, perfect for our group of 7 (2 couples and 3 children). Very clean and comfortable, we all loved our time in this property, especially in the evenings when we opened the sliding wall, sat on the back patio and grilled dinner. House was well stocked with everything necessary for cooking, including spices, cooking oils and even pantry staples. Tons of gear for beach excursions, all the snorkeling gear, chairs, umbrellas and beach toys for all ages you could possibly need. Fantastic, quiet neighborhood made it easy to relax and enjoy our vacation. Perfect location just a short walk to groceries, shops and restaurants and just a few minutes drive to the beach. Communication with the owner and the property manager was quick and easy, and they were both more than accommodating to our requests. We loved this property, and will gladly book again for our next trip to this area!

Everything was wonderful during our stay over Christmas. The home is spacious, comfortable, peaceful and conveniently located. We had four adults and two littles - plenty of space and privacy. The ensuites were perfect and the kitchen was well-appointed. We took advantage of the Mauna Lani Beach Club (perfect for swimming and Sunning with a bar/restaurant on site. We dined at the Fairmont Orchid Browns Beach House, the Mauna Lani Resort HaLani and Surf Shack, the Mauna Kea Manta, and other restaurants in Waikoloa Village. We used two of the bikes ( had to add air to tires, third adult bike had a broken kickstand and very flat tire). The pool in the Villages community was nice but we enjoyed the beach more. One of the showers had definitely not been cleaned - the management offered to send someone to clean it but we didn’t have them do that. Management was super-responsive and communicated regularly with us throughout our stay. Highly recommend this property on the Big Island.

The home is very well appointed and maintained. The home has everything for a comfortable hawaiian stay. Bikes, beach chairs, umbrella, outdoor grill and kitchen, big living area, and every kitchen appliance. Owners made sure to provide instruction manual for everything in the house and nearby suggestions. The two full bathrooms downstairs are brand new and look beautiful. Bed are perfect for a restful night's sleep. We look guard to staying in this home next time we visit the Big Island.

We can’t say enough good things about this property. There were two couples each with a small child. There was lots of space and well equipped for children. Have an ensuite for each family was ideal. Location was close to all amenities and very nice to have access to the beach club. We hope to stay here again next year.

Beautiful inside and out! Very well stocked! Loved every room had an en-suite bathroom! The pool and outside area was perfect for the kids. Great location, close to the store, entrance and shops. We rented golf carts to go to the beach, better parking for them. Lissette was a charm to work with! Hope to return soon!

Thank you for letting us stay in your amazing place. It's a fantastic layout, quality bedding, and well stocked. Each room has its own high-end entertainment system and en-suite w/shower. Lots of privacy between the rooms too. Having direct access to Mauni Lani Beach Club was the highlight of our trip. I’d argue that it’s better than the beaches you get with nearby Auberge or Fairmont, which are both five star hotels.

Previously stayed in other units in Villages at Mauna Lani and found that this unit was the best equiped in the Kitchen. The only two issues: the barbeque was adequate but difficult to control the burner temperature and there were some minor issues with cleaning. All in all, we had a great stay for a month and would rent here again.

Beautiful home for our family stay. Well maintained, great kitchen for actually preparing meals, garage for cars, 4 bathrooms, generous sized rooms everywhere. Easy walk to the shops and restaurant. Need a car for the beach. Would definitely stay here again. Don't count on the boogie boards, but there were chairs and mats there and some snorkel gear.

Enjoyed staying at the property very much. It was comfortable and clean. The kitchen was very well appointed without being cluttered. The bedrooms were large and the bathroom amenities were generous. Had some trouble (likely my fault) checking in but Steve and Maryanne were very patient and helpful. I should have printed the emails sent in advance because I couldn't seem to access them when I needed them. Beautiful grounds and nice location. Recommended!

My family stayed here in Nov 2023. We’ve stayed in several similar locations but this one was perfect for our family. The proximity to the pool/gym and grocery store (30 seconds down a trail and 1 min walk to store) was the clincher for our group. It felt like we were in a quiet area removed, yet were really so close! We had one problem day 1 as the coffee machine was missing a lid, but with one quick email a brand new machine was delivered within a hour or so. (Later we found the coffee lid bottom back of dishwasher, so just a fluke it was missing) Excellent and quick customer service. House was super well stocked with boogie boards, 5 great beach chairs, beach toys etc… Kitchen had everything we needed and the lanai was a great place to grill and eat. My only complaint would be the lack of good quality kitchen knives, but what was there did manage the job. I wouldn’t hesitant to recommend this listing and know that my family would love to return!

This large, immaculate townhouse is the ideal location for a relaxing vacation on the Big Island. The townhouse is so well equipped - great kitchen appliances and utensils, and also beach toys, chairs, and boogie boards. The beds are very comfortable and the whole place has a welcoming feeling. The location is perfect - walk or short golf cart ride to the shops, the beaches, or the 2 resorts within the Mauna Lani property. Robert was very responsive as a host and check in was a breeze. We can't wait to come back for another visit soon!

We spent a week at the property and all the pics were exactly as shown. Beautiful place and very relaxing. Wonderfully outfitted with everything you could need. Walking distance to morning latte and grocery store as well as other shopping. Great places for more exercise/ walking in the area and access to a nice private beach. Private and quiet; and Lisa could not have been more of a pleasure to deal with. If I could give it more than 5 stars I would.

2 couples and 2 kids (15 & 11) stayed for the week of November 9-16. Communication with the owner/management group was seamless and responded to promptly. The house was clean and well maintained. The kitchen was great, and all of the pots, pans, plates & amenities were awesome. The location was great as there was a grocery store, coffee shop, juice bar, shops and an amazing restaurant, Tommy Bahamas, only steps away. The unit also included a pass to the beach club, which also had a great restaurant. When we were there, the beach club was being renovated, however that did not stop us from enjoying the beach. There were beach accessories in the garage that made beach time a lot of fun. We would definitely stay again. No complaints at all.

Large home that could accommodate 3 families including 4 young children with 3 bedrooms and 4 bathrooms. Living, kitchen, dining and lanai areas were very spacious for everyone. Walking distance to common pool area where kids enjoyed playing in mostly shallow water. Very quiet area and complex immediately next to grocery. Had access to private beach less than a couple miles away with great snorkeling for beginners.

This home is a great choice for two or three couples or a family. The two master suites with en-suite bathrooms allow two couples to have equal quality and size spaces to retreat. I love to cook, the kitchen was well equipped with everything you require to prepare gourmet meals. All rooms were spacious which provided comfort for all. The patio was used daily to enjoy early morning coffee and meals. And the sunsets were amazing. The beach access included with the stay was a huge plus, which was a short distance. We had a fabulous time over our three week visit to the Big Island, it was one of the best units we’ve rented over the years in all of Hawaii.

This is an absolute stunner! The condo is beautiful, in a great location, and set up perfectly. We’ve stayed in Kona several times, and this is by far the best. The pool was very nice and quiet and the access to the beach club was perfect. The kitchen has everything you need. I enjoyed cooking on the outside grill too! Trust me, you won’t be disappointed!

Our family, 5 adults &1 child stayed at the property in Oct '23-loved everything about it! Communication with owner was great before and during our visit. The neighborhood was beautiful, clean and quiet. Home was spacious, very clean, beautifully decorated, and provided so many little things which made our stay comfortable. Highly recommend reading the Welcome Booklet when you arrive as it will answer many of your questions and let you know of important rules for the neighborhood. They also provide great information for the area. We had planned to eat in often and decided to use Instacart to order groceries ahead of time from Costco & Target. They were delivered a few hours after we arrived, which was so nice as we had a long day of travel. Recommend preparing your order a few days ahead so you have time to make changes. Also, you'll want to check with the owner about which gate code to give the delivery person. Nearby there is a very nice Foodland grocery store which had the extra things that we needed later. The private beach at the Mauna Lani Beach Club was excellent! We traveled around the island and our family thought the private beach was the best of them all. It was quiet, clean, plenty of shade and chairs with calm waters which was great for our preschooler. But the best part was the snorkeling! We saw more sea life there than on any other beach!! Overall, we can highly recommend this property. If we every make it back to the Big Island, we'll be using it again!

Unit is lovely especially the lani where you can sit and listen to the birds. Very private. The layout of the unit is great with two big bedrooms upstairs and one smaller downstairs. All have excellent bathrooms. Kitchen is well equipped for all your cooking. Plenty of beach towels, beach chairs,umbrella and coolers. Nice to have access to the beach club as it has calm waters for the children. Swimming everyday was enjoyable. Only problem was access code for front gate. Did not work at any time. Had to use the cleaning code which worked. Definitely would recommend this unit.

From the very beginning of our booking process to the end of our stay, the host/owner was exceptionally responsive and forthcoming, making our entire experience smooth and easy. Having stayed at several VRBO’s, we consider this property to be the best we’ve ever experienced. The home is exactly as described, well-appointed, upscale comfortable furnishings, spacious rooms, clear instructions, fully equipped kitchen and lanai BBQ from spices to numerous cooking utensils. The owners attention to detail was remarkable, as the home was truly furnished with care, comfort, and thoughtfulness. The only minor issue we encountered was tha the BBQ wouldn’t light. However, Kathi, the property manager, was immediately responsive with resolving the problem. When considering staying on the Big Island in the future, we would definitely choose to stay here again. The true “Aloha Spirit” could be felt throughout….

We will definitely be returning to this house as our “home away from home”! This house is clean, equipped with everything you need to enjoy your vacation, in a fabulous location, and the communication with the host was excellent. I would rate this is the best rental we have ever stayed at anywhere. Additionally the small touches of great bedding, toiletries, games, and a fully stocked kitchen just made our stay even better. Coming back soon!

We had a wonderful stay in Hawaii this last week! The home was beautiful, and the photos on VRBO accurately represented what we found. Our highlights were: - The house was very clean, with the kitchen specifically being spotless - The kitchen was nicely stocked with everything we needed to make both light and more complex meals - All of the furniture was very comfortable, and the décor was very nice Our only small issues: - The bedding and linens felt fairly cheap, and were thin - We didn't realize that the property was so close to the grocery store / mini mall, which gave off a little truck noise in the morning, but this was a small issue All in all, we had a wonderful time and the home is beautiful!

The house was wonderful. Quiet area with a perfect central location. The beach club and the pool right down the block provided with options for all in the group.

October 2023

What an amazing experience! My one year old’s first priority was to jump into bed and felt the coziness of the bed and sheets. Then a long bath with his big sister. Lush landscapes to relax the mind and a super easy walk to the shops and grocery made everything perfect for us to get fresh and ready made foods before or after the pool or beach trip. A huge plus to having access to the private beach club! We’re a family that cooks and enjoyed huddling around the well designed kitchen island. All appliances were premium quality. Lots of thoughtful design ideas. In fact it was this particular home’s interior design choices that made me excited for this experience. If you’re reading my post, I would definitely recommend staying here. What a fantastic way to end our last leg of our family Hawaii trip! Mahalo Lissette!

Robert's place is honestly the best VRBO I have ever rented. Aside from the fact its very spacious and beautiful (and has very comfortable beds) , he has made sure that the house is completely stocked with everything you could possibly need. Multiple coffee makers, an air fryer, laundry detergent, etc. He responds very quickly with any questions you may have. We have a group of three couples that we travel with every year. This is the best place we have ever stayed. Side note; rent the golf cart, you will definitely use it!

My friends and I had a wonderdul stay! The condo was just as pictured and well appointed. Supermarket and coffee shop .5 mile away. Having Mauna Lani Beach Access card was a plus. It was a lovely beach, safe for youngsters and seniors alike, with great shoreline and fish pond trail access, my favorite place for a morning hike with beautiful photo worthy views. The lanai was private, with a nice grill, outdoor kitchen set up. Bug spray necessary if you spend anytime out there. Very quiet. Pool/spa/ fitness center just a block away and well equipped. We also enjoyed several meals at resort hotels. I would definitely stay at this location again. The hosts quickly responded to questions early upon our arrival. All in all a great experience!

"Perfect" accurately describes this property. It served us as a base of operations to go do all the things we wanted to do on the Big Island. It is clean and very comfortable in all respects. It is well furnished and beautifully decorated. It is in a gated community. Breakfasts on the lanai were a great way to start the day. Robert was available and very helpful with suggestions and assistance checking in. It is stocked with everything you will need, including beach chairs, beach towels and snorkeling gear. If we forgot anything, it seems as if the owners thought of it and it was there at the property. Wonderful poke just steps away at the local market. We loved it. The place made our family vacation that much more relaxing and one we will cherish forever. Mahalo Robert and Jamiee.

We have stayed in these units many times and love the layout. It is very spacious and comfortable. The big bonus is the Beach Club!! The only problem with this unit was that in was not cleaned very well at all upon are arrival. We reported to the property management company and sent pictures of what was not cleaned as requested with no response. Just a little disappointed that my email was never answered. We will return to these lovely units next year!! Would highly recommend this area for your families and friends!!!

The house was wonderful and in the perfect location! Comfortable bedrooms, great shared space, with a fabulous kitchen to cook in. The owners were responsive and outlined every detail of where things were located and how to use things around the house. We loved being walking distance to Foodland for groceries. The Mauna Lani Community pool is walking distance and within 10 minutes you can Lyft/Uber to several beaches. Highly recommend, this was a great place to stay for our first visit to Kona!

Our stay at this unit was wonderful. Beds were comfortable, top notch clean, quiet, and supplies galore. The kitchen had every gadget and appliance you could need although we did not cook (we were on vacation). Shampoo and conditioner provided in the showers were heavenly with a tropical scent. Beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler and nice beach towels for guest to use. The resort beach is seriously the best beach for snorkeling and sunning. We saw giant turtles, eels and fish galore! Excursions we recommend are the Paradise Seas catamaran snorkel to Captain Cook reef and the manta ray night snorkel - both worth the money. The ladies in the family indulged in a relaxing massage at the Fairmont Hotel next door while the guys golfed. We enjoyed playing cards on the lanai. My only suggestion would be to provide a few more games in the unit (scrabble, uno, trivial pursuit, phase 10) as the town shuts down at 8:00 every night so there was little to do. You won’t regret booking this unit!

The home is beautifully decorated with everything Hawaii is. It is fully stocked with everything you need and is nothing less than immaculate. The property manager is WONDERFUL and the location is perfect. We truly enjoyed this private home from its comfort to its elegance. We have visited the island many times before and this home made this year’s return the best yet. We can’t wait to come back!

This home was perfect for our ten day family vacation. With each bedroom having an ensuite bathroom, we were all very comfortable. The office was the perfect room for my little grandson to sleep uninterrupted. The kitchen is spacious and has every pot, bowl, and casserole dish you would ever need. A large dining table inside as well as outside made for nice dining options. The pool was perfect sized for our group. Lissette was welcoming and quick to respond to any question we had. Truly a gem of a vacation rental.

We had a fantastic stay at Hale Honu. The layout was perfect for our family and we loved the outdoor area, including the ceiling fans outside which were a nice touch on the warm nights. We appreciated having beach chairs, an umbrella, boogie boards and a rolling cooler at our disposal. The grocery store and coffee shop were within walking distance. It was a wonderful place to stay on our vacation to the big island.

Beautiful property. Easy check in. Only thing that would’ve made it perfect would have been to be able to use the bikes in garage Other than that, great stay!

I travelled to Hawaii with my husband, toddler and my mom and sister. We couldn't have imagined a better house! We all had plenty of space and I was able to get up early with the toddler (yay me!) and play without disturbing the rest of the house. There was everything you need for a great beach day at the beach club including sand toys (bring your own towels fyi) and we had a blast sipping piña coladas on the beach and snorkling. I would absolutely stay at Luba's gorgeous house again. It was worth every penny!

We had a great time at the condo. Super nice rental, with everything you could want. Lot of space for everyone, SUPER well stocked kitchen, lots of beach gear. The private beach is very nice and has great snorkeling. The shoreline path is lovely for early morning walks. Fun mongoose friends to watch play in the yard. Thanks for a great stay!

Our family of 5, my husband myself and our three children (ages 27, 19, and 16) were in awe as we saw the property! When we walked in it was even better! Robert and Jaimee have thought of every detail, even things that we didn’t know we needed. Everything was immaculately clean, and we felt the aloha vibe as soon as we walked in. Robert also emailed us with information we needed about 2 weeks before our trip. I’m a planner so this was nice to have ahead of time. So many places within walking distance. Our kids said this was one of the best vacations yet! We are looking forward to making this place our go to when we visit the Big Island again! Aloha!

This I a beautiful property in an excellent location. The decor, the furnishings, the comfort, the privacy……. All excellent. We took my in laws and our two teen kids and had an absolute blast. This property felt like home away from home. Steve and Maryanne are such nice people with excellent communication skills. You can tell they really care about there properties and the experience that their guests have. I would also like to mention that the Mauna Lani Beach club is wonderful. Probably the best snorkeling on the island as well as a nice calm area to play in the water and enjoy the beach. You also have Hapuna beach nearby that is probably the nicest white sand beach on the island. Additionally we enjoyed the fitness room and pool / hot tub that was close by our unit. I can go on and on about it! This unite is a gem, you will definitely enjoy your time here!

This property had ample space and very comfortable beds! Great place for a family!

The location was great! It was walking distance to the Mauna Lani shopping center, which is so convenient when we needed to do a run to Fooddland. The neighborhood was great as well. The house was nice. And the beds were comfortable. The only thing was there wss a dead roach in one of the bathroom downstairs and the ants were all ovet the dead bug. We called the management and they sent someone right away to take care of the problem and resolve the issue. Overall, our stay was wonderful, and would definitely stay here again. Thank you!

This property was perfect for our family. We had six people traveling and the bed configuration was just what we needed. The home is big enough to stretch out and it has all of the amenities you need (kitchen items, beach towels, boogie boards, a cooler, and beach chairs.) The location is great! it's in a newer quiet neighborhood. It's within walking distance of the market. It's not quite close enough to walk to the beach (we did one day), but with the convenience of the parking pass for the Mauna Lani Beach Club, you should just drive because you can take the cooler and beach chairs with you. Donna has been very helpful to work with! Check-in was very easy and everything worked perfectly. She was incredibly helpful at check out and even accommodated a unique request for our family. She went out of her way to help us and we appreciated it very much! I would recommend this property.

The place was outstanding. Perfect location and I have never stayed in a house with a better stocked kitchen. We cooked in every night and it was a perfect way to celebrate turning 50. Laura and Kathi were great and easy to communicate with. We will stay again at this property.

We loved our stay in this gorgeous and elegant home. It is by far the most well appointed property we have ever visited. Everything you could ever need in the kitchen, on the beach, or for any part of your stay was readily available. Our host was lovely and tended to all of our questions prior to arrival and checked in with us during the stay to see if we needed anything as well. Can't recommend highly enough.

We can’t say enough of how perfect our experience was, everything was so well maintained and so comfortable for our family to relax and enjoy family time in your beautiful home. We also had fun on all our excursions of the amazing Island. Thank you for a wonderful experience

We had a great stay here. There were 8 of us total (3 adults, 5 kids aged 5-11) for 6 nights. The space was great. Large bedrooms, nice bathrooms. The kitchen was expansive and open to a large living room, which was great for family interactions. We cooked most of our meals at the property. The pool was just outside the back patio and was a great asset. All the extra equipment in the garage (beach toys, snorkel gear, boogie boards) really enhanced our trip experience. Kathi, the property manager, was very responsive throughout.

We had the best time here in Mauna Lani, the location is central to shopping, eating and visiting public beaches along with bonus access to the Beach Club. The house is beautiful and has everything. Beds are super comfortable and the the kitchen is supplied with basics for the occasional meal cooked at home. Love the induction cook top; we are considering switching to it back at home. Fantastic owner response within minutes after sending a question about the TV. 10 Stars all the way around. Mahalo

Our stay was amazing. The property is beautiful and the pictures don't do it justice. The home is immaculate, and well organized. The rooms and bathrooms are very spacious and was well equipped with all the toiletries. Linens were clean and very comfortable. Laundry room was equipped with everything from detergent, fabric softener, and dryer sheets. Sunblock and Aloe was also in the laundry room. Everything we needed for the home was there, and even beach chairs and boogie boards. We didn't have to buy anything for the home besides our food. Stephen & Maryanne were very responsive if we had any questions and a great support when we needed. The neighborhood is very quiet, friendly, and is gated enhancing privacy from the public. The pool and fitness center was great because not many people were there. Its a good space though and each time my kids wanted to swim in the pool we were the only ones there which I didn't mind at all. Foodland is literally behind the neighborhood and in walking distance, so grocery shopping was very close. Also, the private beach access was beautiful. Again, crowds were small, there are chairs there for sunbathing, but you also have the beach chairs provided by the property. They also have a cooler which came in so handy as we kept our drinks and food cold while at the beach. We had an incredible stay and wish we could have stayed longer. We look forward to another stay and hope to make it an annual trip. Thanks again Stephen & Maryanne!
