We stayed at this townhouse for 2 weeks over Christmas 2013. When we arrived the home was in great condition and very clean. Everything you need is available including boogie boards, coolers and fluffy beach towels. All you need to do is arrive and you are set. We met Shig during our stay and he was helpful with any questions we had. The pool and gym are only minutes away which was ideal. There are two large pools and we rarely had to share them which was great! We have stayed at many vrbo rentals in Hawaii and this is one of the best. You can't go wrong renting this unit. We will definitely be back. Thank you for a great rental Shig!!

We stayed at Shig's condo for 2 weeks for my son's wedding and Ironman 70.3 Hawaii. It was the perfect location, very close to the Fairmont Orchids where the wedding and the Ironman was held. The townhouse itself was very clean and very comfortable, close to the recreational area that includes 2 pools and a huge gathering area. I met Shig briefly during my son's welcome bbq and found him very kind. I am already recommending Shig's place to my friends when they plan to visit Kona. FYI. my son and daughter in law also rented from Shig for their wedding in paradise and they were not disappointed. We will definitely stay at this place again!!! Thank you Shig.

My family (2 active adults with kids ages 10 and 12) had a wonderful time staying at Shig's townhouse. Boogie boards, coolers were available for our use and we loved the beach towels. The townhouse was perfectly situated since it was close to the pool and clubhouse. I was able to use the elliptical 5x during our 9 night stay and can report that the exercise room was well equipped. The lap pool and free form pools were frequently used by my family as well. And yes, you have to ask Shig about the fish market--it was a nice end to Spencer Beach. Shig was hospital and ever so helpful. He was able to let us know the Fairmont Orchid tennis rate and also had the resourceful "Big Island Revealed" guidebook on hand in the townhouse. Definitely, you should stay at Shig's!

Two weeks in Paradise
Two weeks in Paradise
My husband and I spent two wonderful weeks at Kulalani in Mauna Lani and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was spacious and well appointed with a great BBQ area. The owner is extremely friendly and helpful in providing local tips. We went for long walks around the Mauna Lani resort and along the beach where we saw numerous big turtles basking in the sun. The private beach area is a great place for snorkeling with lots of tropical fish. The private pool area that is only a few steps from our unit was never crowded and a good place to relax and read. We also did road trips 30 minutes to Kona and south, about 2.5 hours to the volcano park which is well worth the trip and 1.5 hours to the northern tip of the Island. The weather was sunny and warm but it can be quite windy in December.

This is a terrific place! Very clean and well appointed unit in terrific resort community with wonderful private beach club, pools, hot tub, fitness center, shaded BBQ, and grounds. Convenient to incredible beaches, updscale markets and shopping. Shig is a gracious host who makes rental logistics quick and easy and is happy to provide recommendations on places to go, things to do, etc. He also has the unit well stocked with beach chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards. My wife and 8 and 9 year old daughters had an awesome time here, enjoying the community amenities and exploring all the island has to offer.

Terrific Location, Condo, and Owner!!!

We have rented condos through VRBO many times, all over the world, and this condo was the best we've encountered! The unit is in great shape, with great interior design and a very well appointed kitchen, and the location is great as well -- with all of the amenities of the Mauna Lani resort and good access to both Kona and the Kohala coast. And, the owner, Shig, was a wonderful host as well. We plan to stay at this condo whenever we visit the big island!

Perfect Home Away from Home
Perfect Home Away from Home
We had a perfect 3 week stay at Shig and Maya's beautiful Kulalani townhouse to celebrate our 40th anniversary. It was so well equipped, clean, and comfortable. It felt very much like a "home away from home". From our first contact with Shig, he was easy and gracious to work with. We truly appreciated his warm welcome, armed with a Hawaiian anniversary bouquet. What a way to start our vacation. Shig-Thank you for all of your suggestions about places on the island. We enjoyed some great new experiences because of them. Staying here was an exceptional experience. It was such a pleasure to meet you and Maya. We plan to return.

Big Island PARADISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Big Island PARADISE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
There aren?t enough great things to say about our stay at this property. The residence contained everything one could possibly ask for to make a vacation perfect. The house was quiet, well equipped, clean and comfortable. We loved every minute of our 10-day stay and DID NOT want to leave!!!! We will be back next year!!!!! Shig gave us some great tips about the fresh fish store at the harbor. What a find! The fish was caught that morning and on the grill that night. One could not tell it was fish it was so fresh. While you?re there make sure you go across the street to a tiny little ?hole in the wall? and get some of the best shave ice you?ll ever have. Shig also told us about the Hawaiian breakfast restaurant in Waimea. Another MUST HAVE!!!!!!! Go to the private beach, see the Sacred Fish Ponds, swim, snorkel and just plain relax. Shig is a delight and gave us a personal tour of the property. Take advantage of the pool, lap pool, hot tubs and work out room. FIVE STAR***** Thank you Shig and see you next year!

Perfect vacation in paradise!
Perfect vacation in paradise!
My husband, 12-year-old daughter and I rented this condo over the Christmas holidays this year. What a present for ourselves it turned out to be! Shig is so easy to work with and incredibly nice and personable when you meet him. The condo itself is very high-end and luxurious, and we felt very pampered while staying there. The location is perfect. The incredible pool/hot tub/gym are steps from the condo. The pool has a refrigerator, so if you want to bring cold drinks to the pool, you don't need to bring a cooler, simply pop them in the frig there. The beach club restaurant and adjacent beach are a treat. The condo has a beach bag and cooler to use, as well as beach towels (the beach club has chairs set up on the beach, you don't need to bring them). The condo also has a washer/dryer (with washing soap, etc. supplied). The kitchen also has some food supplies, so be sure to check the condo first before shopping. Don't forget to go to the ancient fish ponds (to the right of the beach club), which are amazing! The ancient petrogylphs are also nearby, which are a leisurely walk. If you're looking for something different, simply ask Shig -- he is available for dinner/excursion/?? recommendations as he lives in Mauna Lani. We HIGHLY recommend this property. I can't think of a single thing I would change! Thanks for letting us stay at your wonderful property Shig.
