Here are a few reviews from our renters:

'I am sitting in the living room of the Hopkins' condo as I type. My 5-year-old son is napping (hours on the beach and pool can wear even the most determined non-sleeper down) on 'the coolest bunk beds in the world;' my wife and daughter walked up to the infinity pool for more swim time. The condo is top-notch in every way. It is beautifully furnished and situated in a great location for views as well as access to the pool and fitness center.

The location of the condo development on the grounds of the Mauna Kea Resort is excellent. This is the first time we have stayed in Hawaii and not felt packed in with other vacationers. We are a short ride to the Hapuna Prince Beach Resort and its amazing beach and are within a 15 minute drive of a whole range of other resorts. But the best part is, when we’re at the condo, we don’t feel like we’re in resortville! In other words, this place offers the best of both worlds. We’ll be back!'

-- the Bernard family, Portland, OR

'Your condominium was beautiful. It was so nicely decorated and accommodating for a family of five. The ability to access the pool and beach at Hapuna Beach was a nice extra. We are definitely interested in staying there again some time.'

-- the Feldman family, Los Altos, CA

'Quite simply, the condo was spectacular - our family was there for the first week of 2010 and our only regret was that we would have liked to have spent more time there. In the past we have stayed at the Mauna Kea Hotel; however, now that we have 2 small children we find it challenging to stay in hotels. Staying at this condo was a great balance - we had a luxurious, spacious condo with every amenity that you could imagine plus had signing privileges at the Mauna Kea which was a 5 minute drive. We were treated and felt as if we were guests at the hotel but felt that we were at an advantage since we were able to sleep in a beautifully furnished, 2100 square foot home as opposed to a 500 sq. foot room. Did I mention the amazing views? Highly recommended and we will be back!'

-- the Youn family, Orinda, CA

'We want to thank you for allowing us to stay in your palatial abode. It was the most relaxing part of our trip and your outdoor patio/kitchen was just wonderful. We found it even more beautiful than your VRBO photos.

Your expansive, spectacular ocean view just took our breath away every morning as we lingered over our aromatic Kona coffee on the lanai. Several in our party had not visited the Big Island before and experiencing it with your place as our home base was just a giant bonus. Having access to the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince resorts could not have been more convenient. I even used the shuttle back to the townhouse when our group split up on various adventures and I was without a car and it was so easy and fast. We swam with turtles off the Mauna Kea beach and found the snorkeling there surprisingly good. The easy access to horseback riding in Waipio, Manta ray snorkeling from the Kona harbor and art browsing in Hawi, made us realize that your location just truly can’t be beat.

We rarely (if ever) say we want to return to a place because we like to try something new every time we travel (so many places so little time!). But this was so special and worked out so well for our group, we would very much like to return to your piece of paradise. So many, many mahalos for helping put smiles on the faces of our teenagers, taking the work stress away from my husband and making our family getaway the best yet!!'
