"We first stayed at one of the Ellison condo's 5-6 years ago and several times since. I am happy to say that the place was in as good shape the first time we went there. Certainly speaks to their commitment to maintaining their beautiful homes. There is no doubt that their places are the nicest in the Palm Villas complex and as good as anything comparable in the Mauna Lani area. Palm Villas is in walking distance to the Beach Club which is a real bonus. The Ellisons and their representatives are a treat to deal with. Highly recommended."

"My husband and I spent 5 days at the Palm Villas in Mauna Lani for a relaxing get away. We highly recommend this condo for those who want a condo within a resort. The condo is a short walk to the Beach Club which is an amazing beach that offers calm water snorkeling and paddle boarding as well as lounge chairs and cabanas. We also enjoyed using the boogie boards, cooler and beach chairs (found in the garage) when visiting local beaches. The condo has a great kitchen with a grill on the deck. We ate on the deck most nights overlooking the lava fields. There is an excellent market within walking distance from the condo. We also enjoyed dinner at the Napua which is the restaurant located at the Beach Club. Dinner was a little pricey but well worth it as the food was excellent and you can't beat the ocean view. Highly recommend this condo."

"We had a great stay at the Palm Villa in Hawaii. It was my husband and another couple that stayed in the villa. There was plenty of space and it was beautiful. Pictures don't do it justice. The master bedroom and bathroom are amazing. It was better than a hotel. The walk to the beach was easy. We enjoyed the private pool on the premises and the grill on the lanai. I highly recommend this unit. The logistics were a breeze and Dinah's instructions were simple to follow on how to access the unit, rules, parking, etc. We also enjoyed the complimentary snorkeling equipment! Thanks!"

"My husband and I have visited Hawaii maybe twenty times - I've lost count - and this condo definitely rates at the top. It is very well decorated and furnished. We cooked almost every night and I didn't find anything lacking in the kitchen. I really appreciated the rice cooker. We bought some really nice fish at the nearby Foodland Market to grill. Christine left salt and pepper, oil, and some seasonings in the pantry. That is very nice. You wouldn't believe the number of condos that don't even have salt!
The view in the back isn't as bleak as the pictures might depict. There were a variety of birds living there. There were some partridge type birds that make really odd calls and some bright solid yellow finches called saffron finches. We had a full moon setting out there.
We mostly relaxed, but spent one night in Hilo to visit the volcanoes. It made a much less hectic trip since it's about two and a half hours to Hilo and we got to the volcanoes before the busses. Don't miss the art gallery at the visitor center.
We didn't eat out much, but there are a lot of wonderful restaurant s in the area. We had two wonderful lunches at Merriman s in Waimea. We had a nice lunch at the lodge on Kilauea volcano. Shopping for groceries is much easier in Waimea and The Kings Shopping center. We went to Safeway in Kona, but that was a hassle with traffic and distance. There's a Longs Pharmacy in Waimea.
We definitely would rent this house again, and probably will. Christine, the owner, is very nice, and Robin, the property manager is very nice, efficient, and accommodating."
