Great Family Home
"We stayed in this Villa and had an amazing time. The space, amenities, and condition of the home are excellent. We loved the indoor/outdoor living and the pool and hot tub were just right. The views are incredible and the location is very private. Can't wait to go back!"

"This is my second time to stay in this well equip, nicely appointed home. The view and the setting are beautiful. Anytime there has been a question regarding the house, the island contact has been quick to respond. I would highly recommend this house as a great vacation place on the island. It is close, but yet private, to all amenities."

"We joined our two sons and their families, a total of nine of us, for a fantastic family reunion of ten days at Mauna Kea South Fairways #20. Everything was ready to go. Lots of towels, coffee filters and spices for the barbeque. You do need to bring hair dryers. We stopped at Costco and loaded up and then stopped at the Foodland Farms grocery at Mauna Lani. Lots of refrigerator space including the one in the garage. Registration at Mauna Kea for the amenities program was easy and it gave us an additional two access cards plus a key card to the fitness center. The temperature was easy to control. we used the a/c in the bedrooms and then opened all the sliding doors at night for a gentle breeze. Most of our meals were outside. Parking for two vehicles is not a problem.
The pool is really the high point of the house. It was used every day. We would not recommend it for children that don't know how to swim as it doesn't have much shallow space. Our grandkids are water babies and played in it virtually all day.
We used the boogie boards and other stuff at the beach. Easy to park at Mauna Kea - take the first right hand turn, swipe the access card and park near that end. Take the path on the right side of the parking lot down past the tennis center.
We were there for the 4th of July. Some went to the beach and some stayed at the house. Fireworks visible by the pool at the house!
Every evening we watched the sunset and voted on how beautiful it was. Usually either a 9 or 10.
Activities we did included Golf at Waikoloa Village (great price and wonderful course), horseback riding at Paniolo Stables, day trip down to the Place of Refuge and shopping in Kona, snorkel cruise on the Fairwind II to the Capt Cook monument and a day trip to the Volcano Nat Park. We used the Saddle road and found it to be in really great shape. Most of it has been realigned and repaved. Only the last 10 miles above Hilo are still narrow and curvy. Drive up past Waikoloa Village, turn right and follow the signs. Make sure you have plenty of gas as there is nothing up there.
When we checked out we refueled at Costco. Best price by far.
Again, highly recommended!"

"This was our second time staying here. We stayed 5 years ago and the condo just keeps getting better. The furnishings, kitchen equipment, and the facilities are first rate. Location is perfect and views make you want to come back time after time. Thank you again, Brian.
Jay & Margaret"
