Mauna Kea condo description
Mauna Kea Resort offers a world-class experience with access to gorgeous amenities and two of the most beautiful beaches on the island. Your reservation includes guest access to the resort's amenities: tennis courts (hotel guest rate), Kauna'oa Beach, Hapuna Prince Resort golf course (hotel guest rate), and fitness center (no charge).
Why stay in a hotel room or suite when you can stay in a spacious new condominium in beautiful Wai ‘ula ‘ula at the Mauna Kea Resort? Our home has three bedrooms, three full baths (two master suites with king beds and ocean views, one queen guest room, and a pull-out queen sofa bed in the living room) with over 2100 interior square feet and an additional 253 square feet of covered lanai.
The lanai has spectacular views of the Hapuna Prince golf course, the Kohala Mountain, and unobstructed sweeping views of the Pacific Ocean ensuring that every night includes a sunset that will reinforce why you have come to stay at the world-renowned Mauna Kea Beach Resort.
This home has luxurious mahogany wood-trim and stone finishes throughout, is elegantly decorated with island-style furnishings, and has been outfitted with a high-end Williams-Sonoma appointed kitchen. The kitchen has a Wolf gas cooktop and electric wall oven, microwave, Sub-Zero refrigerator, and a Fisher-Paykel dishwasher.
Finishes in this condominium are unrivaled by any of the hotels in the area. We have ensured that you are sleeping on plush luxurious pillow-top beds in all bedrooms, with a choice of soft and medium loft pillows, and cool yet comfortable primaloft (non-allergenic) comforters.
The lanai is equipped with a gas Wolf BBQ with rotisserie, sink, and under-counter refrigerator with ice-maker. A full-size Fisher&Paykel washer and dryer are also located within the unit. Cable (three plasma/LCD televisions), wireless internet, and local phone calls are included in the rate ensuring your complete entertainment and comfort.
Wai ‘ula ‘ula has a gorgeous recreation center with an infinity edged pool, hot tub, state-of-the-art workout facility within a two minute walk of the unit. These facilities are restricted to use by the owners and guests at Wai ‘ula ‘ula ensuring an exclusive experience. These are in addition to the facilities at the hotels.
World-class Kohala Coast golf courses are within minutes of this home including the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince courses, the North and South Mauna Lani courses, and those at the Waikoloa Beach Resorts.
Linens, towels, soaps, and other conveniences are provided by the housekeeping staff. In short, you will feel like a guest of the resort, have access to the facilities of both hotels, and enjoy the comfort of a spacious three-bedroom condominium with the flexibility of a private home.
We look forward to welcoming you to our home, knowing that it will be an experience to remember. Mahalo.

The Big Island Vacation
The Big Island Vacation
We loved this 3 br condo! The kitchen was well equipped and all of the furnishings were clean and beautiful. There was almost always a cool breeze from the outdoor deck. There is a small pool/hot tub and workout room within walking distance. The best beach on the island is close by but you need a car to access it. The owner was very helpful and answered all of our questions promptly. The views from each of the bedrooms were wonderful. I would highly recommend this property to a friend or relative. We went to Merrimans for dinner. It was very good but expensive. Our favorite activity was whale watching off of the Four Seasons Resort.

This was our fourth year staying for 4-5 weeks. We continue to be pleased with this uni and are renting again next year. The unit is very tastefully decorated. We like the location and the view from this unit. We have recommended this unit to friends who are also repeat rentors.

We truly enjoyed staying in this wonderful condo. True to the description, the furnishings are very nice and comfortable, the layout is spacious and the view fantastic. We also loved having use of the Mauna Kea hotel amenity package -a key component of the experience. This place is a "be back" and can be highly recommended.

Mauna Kea Resort
Mauna Kea Resort
The property was nearly new ! Everything perfect (except the coffee pot !) Three bedroom, three bath with all amenities provided. Grandchildren loved the boogie boards! Thank you for that. We truly hated to leave as the weather was perfect for THREE weeks while it rained torrents on Maul and Kauai. We would love to return. We were welcomed at both Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince and used their beaches (best on big island) and restaurants. Very very nice.

Immaculately appointed, spacious condo with stunning views! We traveled with our 3 children, ages 9, 7 and 2 and they loved it more than we did. Specifics: * The owner was very informative, and thoughtfully addressed all my questions. Immediately answered emails and phone calls. Property manager also helpful though I didn't get a call back from her for an update regarding a minor issue with the washing machine (was fine) * The grounds has a small, but new, rec center with a small gym and infinity pool. Fine for a quick workout, and pool fine for small children. * Property has a garage with GD opener, though it's tight for an SUV * 2nd floor without elevator so will have to go up and down stairs (my 2 yr old had to be carried often) * The minute we opened the door, we knew we had picked the right place, as you immediately see the ocean behind the lanai. We loved our dinners on the lanai as I grilled fish on the Wolf grill. * Kitchen is brand new and very well stocked (I think there were more utensils/appliances and other useful stuff - most of it Williams Sonoma and All-clad - than in my own kitchen - my kids loved the citrus juicer) Coffee machine was fine, but may need an update given we're dealing with the best coffee in the world! * The bedrooms are VERY spacious, with comfortable, soft mattresses and nice linens. We weren't even sure which was the master as 2 bedrooms have large en suite bathrooms, with jacuzzi's. WE picked the one with the best view, though no bad views. * Speakers throughout house, including lanai, though wasn't sure how to use them so didn't try. * LOVED being able to charge to room both at Hapuna and Mauna Kea hotels. We also get full access to both hotel's facilites and beaches included in cost - not the case with Hualalai. Mauna Kea is great beach with very nice snorkeling. * You can't really walk to beach as you have to cross main highway, but it's about a 2 minute drive and you get club access parking * Mauna Kea just seems like a livelier hotel. Hapuna Prince, while gorgeously situated, seems eerily empty. Restaurants great at both places. Staff very friendly at both, including at beach. Wish they would offer beach service for drinks, but I think bc it's public, no can do * Boogie Boards and Snorkel gear in the condo/garage The place made a wonderful vacation extraordinary. Definitely returning - even though it's about 11 hrs for us!)

When you see places like this on VRBO you kind of wonder if it is as nice as it looks. When we arrived and opened the door, we were awestruck! It's fabulous!! We couldn't believe we had chosen such a great place. The pictures on the VRBO site give just a taste of this lovely Condo. The unit and grounds are very clean, well maintained, and the unit is stocked with all manner of very nice kitchen/dining utensils. The sunsets are fabulous from the Lanai, the nightly ocean breezes were "made to order." The shared salt-water swimming pool was very nice and just a short walk away. The staff at the Mauna Kea were helpful, friendly, and accomodating. The beaches are nearby and, while I guess you could walk there, I think you'd end up driving - but it's just a couple of minutes of mostly driving through the resort grounds past golfers and people on bikes. I'd stay here again in a heartbeat and have already recommended it to several of my friends.

A Great Place to Stay
A Great Place to Stay
We all had a terrific time -- 5 adults -- at this wonderful, clean and well-furnished unit. The beds were comfortable and the kitchen had everything we needed (and more). The deck was a terrific place to relax and watch the sunset (which we did each night). The convenience of having a washer dryer was an added plus. The owners thought of everything, including great toiletries in the showers, shower cap, hair dryer -- really, everything you need for a stress-free vacation. We will certainly be back. Mahalo

Manager response: We truly appreciate your taking the time to submit this review. Our Mauna Kea team strives to make every guest's experience a positive one. We thank you for your comments and look forward to your return. Mahalo.
Wow, simply fabulous from the moment we arrived!! Luxury at it's finest. We were 5 adults with 3 children. Wonderful taste in decorating. It felt very private and completely safe. Gorgeous retractable wall to watch the sunsets at night. Workout room just a short walk up the road. As the cook, the kitchen had everything and more, I loved the dishwashers!! Two masters was a bonus. I will recommend this to passengers whenever I can. Both hotel properties were lovely, our toughest decision every day was which one to go to first?! Thanks for the memories.
