Waiulaula Reviews


This condo has everything you need including incredible views of the sunsets! My husband, 2 children (13y/o and 11y/o) and I spent a week enjoying everything this place has to offer. This condo is one of the best we have ever rented. They have Ebikes/helmets, snorkel gear, beach chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, coolers that made going to the beach so easy. Altough, there is not a bike path to the beach from the condo. You have to ride on the road which was a bit scary. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything one would need. There are plenty of towels and supplies such as paper towels, dish detergent, toilet paper and laundry soap which makes it truly feel like home. Also, I highly recommend the daily fee to use the Westin and Mauna Kae beach resort. They are both the most beautiful beaches on the island. This place is magical and is perfect for families with kids!

Beautiful location with ocean views. Had a wonderful time. Home was clean and kitchen had everything you needed. Close to restaurants and shopping. Would definitely stay again.

The best, seriously the best place to stay! The house is absolutely gorgeous and has every amenity you could possibly wish for. Amazing communication with the owners and the manual they left answered most questions - anything else could be answered easily by their on-island contact. The location is prime with beautiful sunset views every night! The unit comes with the option of a club membership at a daily rate and I 100% recommend getting that as it made going to the beach, cocktails, and meals out that much easier. We do not want to leave but are already discussing a family vacation to return! Hopefully we can stay here again! Thank you very much for sharing your beautiful home!!

In the past we have rented other houses in the area. This house exceeded all of our expectations. The backyard is a wonderful combination of sun and shade. We had everything we needed, towels, dishes, paper goods. We purchased the resort amenities, there is no need we didn’t want to leave the house. Can’t wait to come back

This is a beautiful, clean home. We enjoyed everything about our stay. The pool and hot tub were very appreciated and enjoyed after a day of sight seeing.

We visited Kona for the 2023 IronMan. Although the location is a bit of a drive to get to the town of Kona, it was a welcome reprieve to come back to after a busy day sightseeing. The Kitchen has everything you could possibly need to make a meal. Beautiful sunsets on the Lanai. We enjoyed the pool, and workout room. They were just a short walk away from the condo. We would defiently book this condo again!

Stayed a week with family and friends ( 6 of us). We have stayed many times at the Mauna Kea Hotel and this was just perfect for our small group to enjoy all of the amenities of the hotel yet be able to cook some of our meals as well. The condo was spotless and decorated beautifully, with Comfortable beds and furniture. I love it when there are condiments ,etc. in the kitchen as well extra bonus. We already plan to come back and hopefully for a longer stay. We will miss the beautiful sunsets from the lanai. Thank You!

This property is fantastic. The house is perfectly laid out for a family or multiple couples and is so well appointed. The kitchen is amazing to cook in and has everything you need. The views are stunning and the pool is perfectly sized to cool off in on a hot day. We would 100% stay again. Donna, the property manager, is also super easy to deal with and a great communicator.

We could not use the Master bath shower as it was leaking. Some of the furniture was stained and needs cleaned or replaced. Overall was nice place to stay with 3 couples. View of the ocean is partially blocked by the next building but was still nice. We bought the facility passes for access to the beaches at the resorts. Found out they have public access right beside it. Save the money if you’re not needing anything but beach access.

Our family had a great time at this condo! The location is great and the pool at this community ( compared to others in the same resort) is much nicer! We didn’t buy the additional resort access this trip and were just fine. Would stay here again!

This was our third stay in that complex though the first one at this condo. It is a wonderfully placed, well maintained and extremely comfortable condo. The property manager (whom we didn’t meet in person since there was no need) was impeccable: communications were always timely, slightly preemptive but never excessive. We’d happily stay at this place again the next time we visit Big Island.

The house was exactly as the listing described. Very clean, well appointed and in a nice location above the Mauna Kea Resort. Views were not great just because of the way the house is positioned but if a view isn’t a priority, it’s a perfect home. We rented an electric cart from Kohala Beach Buggies which was a great solution to hop down to the beach- it is about a 10 minute drive. Residential Guest Membership is key. We utilized both the MK and Hapuna pools, beaches, restaurants and gyms. Parking and valet are free with the membership. Everything in the home was in perfect working order and the support team was responsive for the few questions that we had.

The condo is very well furnished with all the amenities needed for a great vacation. The kitchen is well stocked with spices and every utensil, pots and appliances you can think of. The location is great and the view from the balcony is a big plus.

Our stay in late summer 2023 was first-class. The home is beautifully appointed with original art and comfortable furniture. We were greeted with an adorable welcome gift from Donna, the fantastic host. Here’s what I think will be useful to future guests: The central air conditioning worked really well, but the mornings and evenings were cool enough to enjoy fresh air through the enormous sliding screen 'wall' that borders the lanai. The kitchen had everything we needed in terms of pans and tools, and the appliances are all best in class. The amazing shower stall that exits to the private outdoor courtyard feels straight out of Architectural Digest. Practically every light switch has a dimmer, so you can really set the mood. And of course, this home has a wonderful pool and spa. The spa is surprisingly private given the expansive views, and it was unforgettable being in the water under the stars. Other highlights were watching the sun set over the horizon and the backyard’s gorgeous plants. The community was very quiet. There aren’t really any cons, though be aware that the home is in a quiet part of the island. It’s about 40 minutes of highway driving away from Kailua-Kona, the nearest town with the most stuff to do on the island's west side. Fortunately, smaller but cute Waimea is only about 20 minutes away, and has numerous restaurants, grocery stores, etc. Highly recommended!

This condo is exactly as advertised. Beautiful open concept condo. Lanai opens up to the main living space and the view is fantastic. The two master bedrooms are very spacious and very comfortable. The first impression was WOW! and we knew we selected the right place to enjoy our Big Island vacation. The condo was very clean and very updated. The pictures don't do this condo justice. Donna was very easy to communicate with and answered any questions we had. Its in a gated beautiful community and felt very safe. The ladies enjoyed the pool and the hot tub and the guys enjoyed the Lanai and the grill. The surrounding property is well maintained and clean. Plenty of things to do in the area with beaches in every direction. We found malasada and shaved ice stands just down the road from the main resort entrance. We look forward to our next stay. Loved it! We highly recommend renting this condo. Thanks Donna, The Lujan's and Sodia's from Colorado.

We're sorry to have to leave this review - we looked forward to this vacation for months and the property looks so beautiful online; the host was incredibly responsive and the stay seemed like it would be perfect. Unfortunately there was a severe insect infestation at the house. The night we arrived, after putting children to sleep, I was walking in the kitchen and received a severe bite on my foot. I had no idea what bit me at the time; there was excessive bleeding, pain and swelling and multiple small puncture marks. Since we didn't know where the bite came from we headed to the emergency room where they were able to treat me and let me know the bite was probably from a scorpion or centipede. Meanwhile at the home my husband and children had found innumerable other insects on the walls, ceilings and floor. We immediately contacted the homeowner and she promised to treat the property the next day. We didn't have many options so rented a hotel room for the kids and we stayed that night. Long story short, after two exterminator treatments we continued to find insects and the final straw came the next day when we found a large worm crawling on my son's pajamas. That was enough and I let the homeowner know that we did not feel safe staying; she let me know checkout was 11am. This home was not safe or comfortable. Do yourself a favor and rent directly through Mauna Kea resort, they would have refunded our money or found a nice place for us to stay. Lesson learned.

We have been coming to this area for awhile now and truly enjoyed what this property offered. The house suited our families with young children and grandparents so well.

We had a wonderful stay in this condo. It is elevated on the property, so it offers unique privacy and very pretty views.

The online pictures of this property looked too good to be true, but this unit, and its views were even better in person. The kitchen had everything you could possibly need to cook family-size meals. It really was a home-away-from-home. There wasn’t one thing about our stay that I would critique.

Unit is beautifully decorated, clean and spacious for our family of 6 adults and 2 young children. Parking is easy. Unit has option to pay $165 more per day to have access to both Hapuna and Mauna Kea resort facilities, beach and pool chairs, golf discounts, parking at resorts etc. It is worth that for our family. We enjoy using both resorts chairs, golf discount and parking. Plus you get charging privileges at resorts for drinks, food, retail which makes things easy or too easy lol. Unit has own community pool and workout room which are very nice if you do not want to buy into the resort package.

This was our 2nd time staying in Wai'ula'ula as the location w/in the MK resort complex is ideal, nonetheless this particular villa was the best villa we have stayed in to date. The villa location is spectacular w/clear ocean views, the walk to the pool is a breeze, but moreover the villa was spotless, updated and exactly as represented, I can't say enough how much we loved our extended stay at this villa and only wish we could've stayed forever. Already counting the days until our return....Mahalo Donna!

We have stayed in many, many VRBO houses over the years in Hawaii and elsewhere and this property ranks at the top. It was clean and well stocked, maybe the most well stocked house we’ve ever rented. Think sponges, foil, plastic wrap, ziploc bags, trash bags, keurig coffee pods, spices, detergent, soap, Kleenex, on and on. We easily saved a couple hundred dollars in all those items that we normally have to buy and leave behind at other properties. The couple small issues we had were IMMEDIATELY dealt with via the house rep there on the big island who was readily available via text. We will happily be back to this house and highly recommend it for others!

Perfect for our 3 generations of family stay. GREAT COMMUNICATION FROM HOST!!! loved having the kitchen stocked with so many cooking supplies, condiments and snacks. The views are beautiful and the two master suites were a huge plus. We will definitely be back!

July 2023

The place was great for my family of 5. The sunset views were awesome! That was my favorite part. The pool and hot tub were really nice as well and we used the fitness center. The resort access was unclear as to whether it could be for a single day or the full trip. Be advised you have to book it for the whole trip and they publish the daily rate. The local public beach (hapuna beach state park) was great and right next to the resort beach and the community pool was nicer than the resort pool.

We love the location because we have stayed in this area before. Our family used the club gym which was walkable from where we stayed (I used the hotel gym which was much more crowded). We had some issues with getting the spa warm; we followed the instructions but Lissette got us some help and problem resolved. I know other guests commented on the pool size but for a family of 5, it was fine for us. The kitchen/family room area was huge so we had plenty of space to spread out. Bedrooms were all roomy and well appointed. Lissette was very responsive whenever we had any issues or questions so we really appreciated that. We would definitely stay here again!

This amazing property gave us a wonderful holiday. The location was perfect, and the 180 degree view of the ocean was a constant delight. We are a multi-generational group, and the facilities were perfect for the 6 of us. The decor and cleanliness of the entire property is of the highest quality. The house is arranged beautifully to allow lots of interaction and fun times, and yet large enough to insure space and quiet times for everyone. Access to the amenities package for the Mauna Kea and Hapuna resort areas was a huge advantage—you are just a scant few minutes from one of the most fabulous beaches in the world. It could not be more convenient. I also cannot say enough about the high quality of the property management. Donna Brucato was always responsive to the needs of our family and prompt with responses to any inquiries. The younger members of our group, ages 3 and 11, are already asking when we are coming back. We are all looking forward to it.

June 2023

Overall, we enjoyed our stay here. Large property for our family of 4. Good views. We did not eat much at the property, but it appeared well stocked. We did not use any of the recreation goods in the garage partially due to their small sizes. One constructive complaint would be that the window dressings are not sufficient, so when the sun comes up, it is daylight bright which makes it tough when acclimating to the 5-6 hour time differences. And, the AC is locked at 72 degrees which might have been ok IF the ceiling fan was not also locked on low and there are no area fans So, we were a little warm and woke up earlier than desired. Beds are also very firm if you are sensitive. We did do the Mauna Kea amenities package which is pretty expensive and may or may not be worth it depending on your usage. We definitely did not use the resorts amenities enough, but it was our first time to the Big Island, so we spent a lot of time outside the resorts seeing the rest of the island. But, we did play golf at both the Mauna Kea and Hapuna courses where we got a little discount. This was a good home base and we enjoyed our stay.

The place was fantastic. The en-suite bedrooms, closets and bathrooms are large and beautifully appointed. There were very nice amenities supplied such as shampoo, conditioner and body lotion. Very nice hangers in the closets and bathrobes. Cotton balls and Q-tips. The kitchen was very well stocked and supplied with spices, coffee pods, and all sorts of cooking equipment. The great room area was beautiful, the lani area spacious and beautifully appointed. All the furnishings were extremely nice. The property has a small pool and hot tub and the complex also has a pool. The views are incredible. We signed up for the Mauna Kai club which my family enjoyed very much. The place is very well set up for families or couples. It has beach chairs, beach towels and a huge array of beach toys. Both the owner and the property manager were very responsive and helpful. They provided a book with information about the property, area activities and restaurants. We could not have had a better experience. Thank you for sharing your home with us.

We had a lovely 8 day stay at this villa and thoroughly enjoyed the pool, view and accommodations. It’s also great to be able to use the two hotels and their beaches just down the hill. Would definitely stay here again! Donna was an excellent host as well!

We absolutely loved this condo! It is super clean. It has all the kitchen necessities you could want. The view off of the deck is beautiful. The beds are so comfortable. The showers are hot. The laundry is in the unit. It’s perfect.

Comfortable unit we had 6 people and we could have peace and quiet or gather for a meal together. Close to the amenity center and a few minutes drive to Hapuna golf or beach

This is a nice second floor unit. It is well furnished and comfortable. Nice sunset views. We have stayed at a first floor unit previously. These are really spacious, well appointed units. We make use of the resort pass for using the pool, beach access, gym and parking. Well worth it.

Large house in a gated community. Everything we needed was there except beach. Take the optional access to Mauna Kea that gives you parking and access to Mauna Kea and westin hotels and parking. They can’t limit public beach access but they can do the same thing while for instance limiting public parking to 40 spaces. Unless you have a membership that effectively limits public access. The family had an excellent experience with the house and the resort. Grahame Freeland

Convenient place for events at the hotel. Friends stayed at the property next door so made for memorable time for dinners and launching point for daily excursions after work in the mornings at the hotel.

The condo is exactly as it appears in the photos, with amazing views and breeze, fully stocked kitchen utensils/pots/pans, etc and nice furnishings. Highly recommended getting the extra pass to use both Westin and Mauna Kea resort amenities. We had a fabulous time.
