"The condominium was wonderful. You will find everything you need in the house, even a few pairs of flip flops, a first aid kit... The kitchen is fully equipped with enough plates, glasses, silverware, pots and pans, and it was really convenient to find basic things like oil, salt, salad dressing, coffee... The place is very roomy and quiet, there are games for the kids, videos, WiFi... The garage has all the beach equipment you need, 12 snorkeling sets from kids to adult sizes, boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers, beach toys... The swimming pool and jacuzzi are very close by. The beach is only a few minutes away by car, or about 15 minutes walking, the snorkeling there was very good and we also watched the fish in the ponds.
Thanks Karen and Arthur for making this vacation such a success."

"What a beautiful, bright, spacious condo! There was plenty of sleeping room for 6 adults and one toddler, plus we managed to fit 9 of us on the lanai for our fun-filled dinners every evening. The view and quiet atmosphere from the lanai off the master bedroom was wonderful. We spent a great deal of time on the main floor lanai and enjoyed how peaceful it always was. We have been to three of Hawaii's islands a few times now and this is our favourite resort and condo. The Palm Villas is so nice and quiet and the pool is amazing - such beautiful surroundings, warm water and always very quiet.
The entire Mauna Lani resort is a welcoming oasis in the middle of the lava with marvelous walking paths and bike lanes. We looked forward to our walks through the fishponds and around the resort every day.
We would like to be able to keep this condo and the Palm Villas our own little secret, however, according to how quickly it books up, the secret is obviously out! For those of you thinking of visiting for the first time - you are in for a real treat!!"

"We have been at Mauna Lani several times. It is our ideal vacation with its fantastic beach club beach and beautiful ponds. We decided to try Palm Villas as we wanted to walk to the beach instead of driving from Fairways where we have stayed before.
We were very happy with the unit and the management. The only complain I would have were the people in the unit above waking up around 5 am every day so I was awaken many times by them. The good thing was that I am used to be 3 hours ahead ( Vancouver time) so to me it was like waking up at 8 am.
We hope to come back soon...."

"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."
