Palm Villas condo description
This property is what you have dreamed Hawaii would be … and is actually all about. Check Out our $$ Specials below.
And this property is the answer to THREE questions you are asking as you search the Web looking for the “right” place!
1ST QUESTION. Why should I vacation in the Mauna Lani Resort area vs. somewhere else in Hawaii?
Here are descriptive words often used of this prestigious, exclusive area … and for good reasons: World Famous, Triple A, Four Diamond World Class Resort, Mauna Lani & Fairmont Orchid hotels, 14 separate restaurants, 3 pristine private beaches, miles of walking and jogging paths, 2 world renowned golf courses, sunset cruises, fishing, whale watching, scuba, and just about the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii.
2ND QUESTION. Why choose the Palm Villas vs. somewhere else in Mauna Lani?
LOCATION. LOCATION. LOCATION. The Palms is a privately gated, small group of new condominium homes - perfectly and centrally located in the heart of the resort. The Palm Villas are tucked away between the 18th Fairway of the North Course, the Historical Preservation Area, and the Mauna Lani Spa and Fitness Center. We have our own private waterfall pool, hot tub and fitness center, seconds from your doorstep, set among luscious tropical landscaping. And, you will have access to the pampering Mauna Lani Spa (across the driveway) with its fitness center, 6 tennis courts, lap pool, steam and sauna rooms and, of course, massages.
You are within a short, 12 minute leisurely walk through the fascinating royal fish lagoons and lava tubes in the historic preserve leading to the FABULOUS private beaches and your beach club, the Mauna Lani Beach Club. There you can enjoy lunch, snacks and drinks while lying in the provided, chaise lounge beach chairs. Or just enjoy the fabulous snorkeling, white sand beach, and calm waves. And you can enjoy watching the whales in season, or the large sea turtles coming ashore to bask in the same sun you are enjoying.
A short walk in another direction from your doorstep, brings you to the world class resort hotel with its shops and restaurants. Or a short walk in a different direction takes you to the brand new shopping complex containing the Tommy Bahamas store and restaurant, Ruth Chris Steak House and a wide variety of other boutiques, galleries, and an ice-cream shop. And this island is the home of Kona coffe!
So, whether it’s walking to your favorite activity, or throwing your clubs in the car or your cart, LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION at the Palm Villas will make your vacation, … oh so much better.
And in addition to LOCATION, the Palm Villas offer elegant, luxurious comforts you want and will appreciate while being on vacation. There is nothing basic about our villas.
We have open spacious living areas, gourmet kitchens with designer cabinets, granite countertops throughout, and stainless steel appliances. On the lanai there is a built-in, top of the line, outdoor double wide gas grill, hood with fan and lights and a bar sink. All of this speaks of the comfort, pleasure and rest you will have in these units. You will walk in the door and say WOW, with a smile on your face, knowing the next several days will be spent there.
3RD QUESTION. Why should we stay in this particular unit in Building H at the Palm Villas vs. other Palm Villa units? What is unique about it?
FIRST- It is the largest of the four plans offered in the Palm Villas with over 2180 square feet. If you are looking for a lot of space for you and those you are with, and also a unit that feels and lives really large, this is it. Each bedroom has its own bath. The upstairs Master suite is secluded from the living area with its own, large private lanai.
SECOND- As the owner, I am biased, but we specifically chose this location because we believe the H building location is the BEST in the complex. Here is why. It is in the very rear of the complex, away from any possible pool noise, and nestled against the Golf course. And since it is at the very end of the driveway, it gets no road noise. It is secluded, very safe and very quiet.
THIRD- After it was finished, we went way beyond the ordinary to have this place professionally decorated and custom painted with the highest quality furniture, furnishings and art from Tommy Bahamas and others so that you will feel pampered and know that you are not in “just a rental”. You will experience the difference from the moment you walk through the door to when you slip in the amazingly comfortable beds at night. You see, this is where we vacation, and that is how we want to feel when we are in Hawaii.
FOURTH- Both the upstairs Master Suite and lanai, and also the downstairs family room and lanai, face the historic preservation area, the royal fish ponds and the ocean. Therefore at night, the cool breeze comes through open screen doors and windows of the Master Suite, and you can hear the soft crash of the waves on the beach.
You can eat dinner outside at night on the downstairs lanai and face amazing sunsets. Or sit on the large upstairs lanai and watch seasonal fireworks from both resort hotels over the ocean. Or just sit in the comfortable chairs on the lanai with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine looking over the incredible view. It is Hawaii … and you are on vacation. It does not get any better than this.
FINALLY- From the early construction days to even now weekly, we have prayed and asked our Heavenly Father to place blessings of peace and rest on all the people, of all kinds and nations who rest in this house. Many have remarked on how they experienced the peace of this house.
We are a great value when you add all this up. Plus FREE unlimited phone calls to the US mainland! Check out the pictures and give me a call or email. We currently have space in this unit for this year or perhaps in our smaller H-23 or H-3 unit.

Celebration in Kona
Celebration in Kona
There were many things to love about this lovely condo. It's location is great as it is close to golf which was important to us. There is an upscale grocery nearby which makes dinner plans easy. The beach is a short drive or walking is an option. Major hotels are close if you wish to enjoy a cocktail at sunset. The pool/hot tub are very handy also. The property is beautiful and very well-maintained and there isn't a single amenity missing. All equipment is provided for snorkeling, picnicing and sitting on the beach. We were extremely pleased with this condo and impressed with the customer service from the owner. The website gives a pretty good representation of the unit. This was a lovely place to celebrate our anniversary.

We stayed in this home for 8 days and had a great time. Everything about this rental was wonderful from the easy reservation process to the beautifully furnished home. The home was well stocked from the kitchen to the storage area where we used the snorkeling equipment, the boogie boards and the chairs. The property is near the pool however the temperature of the pool was very cold and not comfortable for swimming. My only recommendation is that the pool should be heated to a comfortable temperature. Solar heating could be an excellent solution. All in all we absolutely loved the home, we couldn’t ask for more!

My wife and I visited the Islands to celebrate our 50th anniversary spending a week on Kauai, a week on Maui, a week on Oahu, and two weeks on Hawaii. The Palm Villas condo was definitely our best experience. The condo became our home and it was hard to leave. It is clean, well maintained, and is in general a very high quality accommodation. The Palm Villa complex is convenient to shopping and activities but is very quiet with a feeling of seclusion. The pool area is beautiful and we essentially had it to ourselves. Dealing with Arthur was professional and efficient. The reservation process was easy, accommodating, and clear. Communication was outstanding with many instructions for use of the condo, tips for the area, checkout procedures, etc. Refund of the deposit was prompt. The Ellison's have thought of everything!! Best equipped condo I have ever stayed in. The Mauna Lani resort provides top notch amenities. Arthur suggested Brown's for a nice meal and we chose to have our anniversary dinner there. The server he suggested did an outstanding job making the experience perfect. We hope to return soon.

A lovely home in Hawaii
A lovely home in Hawaii
We had a lovely vacation in this beautiful, comfortable and extremely well-organized and equipped home. It was easy to find everything, and everything that one could imagine needing was provided. From boogie boards and pool noodles to extra towels and flashlights in case of emergency, this home has it all. The kitchen has everything you'd need for preparing meals for a crowd; the DVD library has something for every taste. The owner was very easy to work with - all in all, we plan to return next year for our vacation.

Our Stay at H4
Our Stay at H4
We've been coming to the Big Island annually for 20 years, and stayed in several different resorts, in hotels before children, and condos after two kids (6 and 8 as of this visit). H4 is -- hands down -- the best condo we've been in. Mauna Lani is pound-for-pound our favorite BI resort, with Palm Villas among our favorite complexes. Not only is H4 spotless and manically well-organized (I'm pretty sure Arthur and Karen own a label-making concession!), the decor and furniture is first class and beautiful. The sunset view is of course great as is the layout. What really makes H4 special are the small touches. Around every corner and on every shelf is a little something to help you enjoy your stay, from 144 DVDs (exactly 144 -- they're numbered!) to great guide books to aloe for your inevitable first day sunburn in the fridge to extra propane tanks for the barbecue to a BI relief map and large island prints on the wall. A particular bugaboo of mine is keeping cool and sleeping well at night in the tropics. Having stayed in condos with rattling old fans, how nice to have a cool breeze from the whisper-quiet wicker ones here. There's a reason H4 gets unanimous 5-star ratings from every guest. We're happy to add to the list. There is no question we will be back -- were the world run by hosts like this, it would be a much better place!

Our Second Home in the Middle of Paradise
Our Second Home in the Middle of Paradise
My wife and I just returned from a 10 day stay in The H-4 Unit of Palm Villas on the Kohala Coast with my son and his fiance. This was our 8th trip to the islands and we have stayed in all manner of hotels, condos, and private residences. Thi stay was as close to perfect as we have ever found. The owner has gone way above the norm to assure a first claas experience in his home on the Big Island. The furniture, appliances, furnishings, and even the plentiful artwork, are all first-class. His attention to detail is incredible. Everything from labeled electrical switches, flat screens in all bedrooms, flashlites in every conceivable location...right down to having his cell phone (and those of his local property managers) programmed with a special ring when calling from the condos landline. I could have left a third of the things I always pack at home had I known how extensive the amenities were here. Things like first aid kit, binoculars, rolling coolers, backpacks, extra swimsuit, snokel gear in three adult sizes and kids sizes, water noodles, boogie boards, and all manner od sand toys. My only problem will be trying to find a equalvalent property on Kauai when we travel there in two years. Thank You for a perfect vacation!

Aloha - We just returned from a wonderful 2 week stay at the Palm Villa's H4 condo. This home has everything you could possibly need for your vacation. We were a group of 6 (2 children) and it fit us easily with extra room to spare. It is very difficult to find a unit that has enough dinner seating and big enough table with enough lounge space to enjoy in the evening if you are travelling in a larger group. All the bedrooms are big and well furnished and the kitchen is stocked with all the appliances and utensils you could need (infact this is the first time with a rental that I have not required anything extra in the kitchen!). This unit is extra special because of it's location - it is an end unit and has complete privacy, and gets all the afternoon and evening sun. The lanai is a wonderful place to enjoy a drink and a read after a long hard day at the beach! If you are beach people this unit is equipped with everything you might need to enjoy a day in the surf and sand - don't worry about bringing anything from home - from beach towels to chairs to boogieboards to snorkel equipment to kids beach toys - eveything is supplied. Palm Villas has a nice central location in the Mauna Lani development - you can easily walk to the stores and the beach - no other complex in Mauna Lani allows this! The central pool area is close (but not too close!!) and if you are travelling with kids they will love this pool with the waterfall and rocky outcrops. What else can I say? From the DVD library to the flatscreens in each room to the 2 outside sitting areas with barbeque you can be easily entertained whether you are inside or outside of this home! I would recommend this home to everyone, especially those looking for lots of space. Mauna Lani is our favorite holiday destination since discovering it 2 years ago - you can't beat the private beach club, gorgeous surroundings and close access to the best beaches on the Island - now we don't want to go anywhere else! Mahalo to the owners for thinking of everything and opening their gorgeous home to us.

Great vacation villa
Great vacation villa
Our family-my husband and I, two adult children and spouses and 10 month old grandson had the pleasure of spending 10 days at the H4 Palm Villas. The booking process was seemless and detailed entry instructions and codes were delivered in a timely fashion. Lots of useful info re beach, restaurants etc provided in a binder at the unit. The H4 is spacious, bright and well furnished-ample sitting and dining space for all, even a high chair( much appreciated). The kitchen has great appliances and all the cooking equipment one could want. We ate most meals on the lanai and made good use of the built in BBQ-beautiful spot to sit. The unit was clean and well presented.We enjoyed the pool area and the complex grounds are beautiful and very well maintained. It is an end unit so has space and privacy-also a nice grassy area in back. We certainly look forwad to returning.

Fantastic Vacation in Kona
Fantastic Vacation in Kona
We vacationed on the Big Island for 2 weeks staying in different places and different parts of the island, and our best time was staying at the Palm Villas. We had a multi-generational family vacation of 8, ranging in age from a 2 and 4 year old, and an 84 year old great-grandmother. The condo really had everything and more that you could need on a vacation: A/C, BBQ, lanai, community pool, and even special access to the Mauna Lani Beach with free cabanas and awesome snorkeling only a 2 minute drive away! They had a nice collection of DVDs that entertained the range of ages for everyone, and also had Big Island travel books if you still weren’t sure where you wanted to go. But what makes the condo worth renting is the availability of enough beach towels for everyone, snorkel gear in all sizes, life jackets (that my children were sad to leave behind), boogie boards, and when you got tired of the beach, you were steps away from the pool. They also had very clear instructions about how to clean the equipment, how to check out, and even labeled the light switches which comes in handy when there are so many in a room. Overall, we saved a lot of money renting this condo compared to staying at a hotel. We could cook our own meals. We didn’t have to rent any beach gear. We didn’t even have to pack so much because we were able to use their washer and dryer. And the Mauna Lani community was great because it was close to the resort, but without having to pay resort prices. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here, and are already talking about the next time we can come back. The owners were so easy to work with, and with 2 other properties next to each other, perhaps we can coordinate a larger reunion next time!

What a beautiful place. We had a great time staying at this condo. The amenities were fabulous, everything we needed. The place was so clean and well cared for. A really good location if your going to be doing things outside the resort as well. We loved Hawaii and hope to return someday soon.
