We're coming back!
"We rented this house with another family for spring break. It was the perfect set up for 2 families! The kids loved the pool and hot tub and we played every sport imaginable on the grass.
Linens were very nice, appliances are new and kitchen is well appointed. We cant wait to come back!"

"This Villa exceeded our expectations. Comfortable, huge rooms and bathrooms, very clean, beautiful views, very quiet and in a perfect location (5 minute walk to Mauna Kea Resort). It really seemed that a lot of thought went into making this a home away from home (stocked pantry, shampoos, fruit basket etc). Property Manager Bennett took care of every detail and was also a great source for information, history and island tips.
We will definitely return."

"Our family thoroughly enjoyed our time in this villa. The view every evening watching the sunset were fantastic. The home is spacious and comfortable. The kids enjoyed both the backyard pool, and for a larger pool nearby, the salt water pool at the community center. We opted to utilize the Mauna Kea Amenity Package, and would highly recommend. It provides easy access to Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beaches and pools (less than 5 minute drive) and the amenities of chairs, beach towels, and umbrellas that make it so worth it. The owners and local property management were all very responsive both prior to arrival and with any questions once we arrived. This was our first trip to the Big Island, but it is now our favorite place in the Islands. Looking forward to the opportunity to return."

"I feel compelled, because of our amazing experience, to write this review of the awesome condominium that we had the pleasure to reside in for 10 days. The Big Island has so many attractions and destinations for a traveler to enjoy, but it makes it so much more pleasant to have a great, relaxing "home base" to return to after the excursions. Not only were the living areas spacious and delightful, but the bedrooms were larger than expected. One of the many experiences my wife and I enjoyed the most were the sunsets while relaxing on the lanai. A unique quality of this specific unit are the vistas. This is a result of it's location on the highest part of the property and also the direction that it faces...due west. Of all of the units in Wai'Ula'Ula, this unit has the best views. Stunning sunsets. Actually experienced the "green flash" on one occasion. Another pleasing attribute was the quality of the construction and the "gourmet" kitchen. Since we both enjoy cooking, we delighted in the high quality of the design, finishes (granite) and appliances (Subzero, Wolf, etc.). We also utilized the outdoor kitchen on the lanai which had a Wolf grill. After all of the food that we consumed, the fitness center was a daily routine. Great cardio and weight machines. The swimming area was so quiet and peaceful that it became one of our favorite places to relax during the day. Location is great. e.g. Waimea - 15 minutes (Merriman's) Kawaihae - 5 minutes (Blue Dragon & Café Pesto) Shops at Mauna Lani - 10 minutes, etc.
In conclusion, we were so delighted we will not stay at any other location other than Wai'Ula'Ula N201 on our next visit."
