Recent Mauna Lani reviews
Better than expected!
"After just getting married in Maui, my wife and I (and our friends) had chosen to stay here on the Big Island. The Mauna Lani area is a gated community that has a luxury and safe feel. However, the home was absolutely amazing. The size, rooms, kitchen, decor, furniture - all top notch. There was nothing wrong I can say about the property. Once we all entered the house, we ran around in amazement of how nice it was. The biggest surprise was how much the home was stocked with items. You had all the kitchenware, condiments, snacks, even some food readily available. If there is something we needed to cook dinners, surprisingly, they had it. This is something you don't find in most rentals.
More importantly the owner (Ticknor) was pleasant to work with. Very understanding, great communication and you had that feeling where you can trust who you're renting from. This made the experience even better.
Highly recommended for anyone visiting the Big Island."

"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."

"My wife and I stayed here in the summer. It was wonderful! We loved walking to the beach; the ocean was warm and clean, and teaming with tropical fish throughout the protected reef. We had lunch and dinner at Napua, the charming restaurant overlooking the beach and Maui across the channel.
I'm a golfer and tennis player, and I was in heaven. There are 2 eighteen hole, world class courses at the Resort, and the Racket Club has a stadium court where they once played the US Open. There are 5 other courts, all night lit for playing after the sun goes down.
The large apartment is beautifully furnished, both indoors and out. It couldn't be more inviting and comfortable. We appreciated the single level and the step down, sunken living room. Frankly, this place is more comfortable than a 4 Seasons suite. The view over the fairway, looking out at the ocean and fabulous sunsets, made for perfect photos just before sunset when the light was great. We like an expansive, gorgeous view with luxury and privacy: this place has it all."

The property manager was more than helpful.
The vacation rental was very clean.
I was very happy with the location.
I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
Fabulous location...loved the ease to the water for snorkeling and the walk to the beach and Restraunt.. Kitchen was very well stocked. Very comfortable beds. Would have been very crowded with 6....perfect for 2-4 if coupled. Great screen doors. Nice bathrooms. Photos of condo look larger because of mirrors. Quite a bit of noise from upstairs and occasional (4) cockroaches which freaked me out but know that it's the tropics."
