  • perfect for a family with a small child, but ...

    "Rating Details: I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. I was very happy with the location. The vacation rental was spotless. The property manager was very helpful. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: perfect for a family with a small child, but VERY hot The house was perfect for a family with a small child. There were many toys for both indoor and out, and the crib and high chairs were perfect. There were a number of beach and sporting equipment for adults as well. The layout was also very good, and the kitchen was well stocked and well located. There were two major problems. One, it was extremely hot and the house has no air conditioning. The master bedroom was 91 degrees most nights, even though we kept on fans all day long and pulled down the sunshades. Second, the house has white carpeting which seems crazy for a house that clearly is set up for families. You can't help but track water from the kitchen to dining room or hall. We put down towels to wipe our feet on when we went from the kitchen tiles to carpet. The gravel pathway from the community to Alii Drive was great for walking or biking to town."

  • Amazing Unit - Just Like Home!

    "Palm Villas bring us back to Kona year after year. Like last year's post, I research a lot. I'm picky, very picky, and Palm Villas is perfect for our family with three teens. Why Mauna Lani properties? Simple - the Mauna Lani Beach Club access to the private beach with covered cabanas, crystal clear water, an amazing on-site restaurant, stand-up paddle board and canoe rentals and an uncrowded sandy beach where you can take a 7am dip with no one around but a honu and some fish, or watch an evening sunset while floating on your back in warm ocean waters in a cove out of the wind. Why Palm Villas condos versus Golf Villas or any of the other complexes at the Mauna Lani property? - Palm is across the street from the spa. - Palm has 8 buildings to share the pool. Golf Villas has more and pool is more crowded. - Palm pool has never had more than 3 other people in it at any time we've gone. It is bath water warm with stairs in for little kids, 3' depth and 4' depth. Perfect options for all. - Palm his closest to the path to the private Mauna Lani Beach Club and is a 15 minute walk through the lava and koi ponds on a paved walkway. - Palm is closest to the Mauna Lani shopping complex (grocery store, Tommy Bahama Grill, ...) and you can easily walk the two blocks home after a successful happy hour or for a morning coffee. - And a big reason we chose Palm for both visits was our unit's owners, who were great to work with. Pool: Open 8am - 9pm it is the perfect size, always empty, clean and has a very hot, hot tub and waterfall with a bench behind it to sit. Location: We love it up north. We drive south to Alii and Kona for the farmers markets and cooked almost every meal in the well stocked units. The outdoor BBQs are clean and perfect with an overhead fan keeping you cool as you sip drinks in the evening. This location has a full-sized washer/dryer and the upper lanai has gliding chairs, which I loved. Downstairs lanai is the bbq and outdoor table. Free wi-fi. A small shed filled with umbrellas, coolers, boogie boards, snorkels, noodles and anything you'd need. Both units have extensive DVD collections, many games for the kids to play, bookcases with books and truly it is just like home."

  • A privilege to stay here!

    "We had a blast on our trip to the big island! What a wonderful place to finally be able to see and experience. Our stay at this house was better than we were expecting. The pictures didn't seem to do justice and noticed that right when we stepped onto the property. The porches were our favorite part. Being on a 5 hour difference we woke up and watched the sunrise every morning over the Hilo bay with Kona coffee and fresh fruit. It was amazing! This house without a doubt has the best location on the bay! Hands down. We enjoyed walking to the farmers market and picking up fresh food and gifts and eating at the many awesome cafes. Everything we ate in Hilo was top notch! It really felt like a privilege to stay at this house with all the history and getting the honor to meet Pudding!! She was a highlight of our trip. She was so nice to us. We traveled for 15 hours and showed up at the house and she greeted us with soup, beer and some amazing stories. If and when we come back we will schedule our trip dates around the availability of this house. Much love to the family for opening up their house to us! MAHALO!!"

  • Lovely stay

    "This condo was lovely. It comfortable fit 4 adults. Everything we needed was in the condo. The lanais looked out over the ocean and the sunsets were unbelievable. Even with neighbors on both sides it was very quiet. Would stay here again in a heartbeat."

Lanai Travel Tips

The Stuff Holidays are Made of at Lanai Vacation Rentals

Imagine framing the rock cliffs of Lanai, Hawaii in your camera. The unhurried pace allows plenty of opportunities for leisurely activities in a place that inspires daydreams. If you can dream up a watersport, relaxing activity, or view, Lanai vacation rentals will be the place to find this reality. Lanai is one of the smaller Hawaiian Islands as it's only 18 miles in length and 13 miles wide. As someone said, “There are no traffic lights, and this is how the people of Lanai like it.” It is a whole other world on Lanai and most definitely different from Maui which is eight miles away.

Pragmatic Details About Lanai Beach Rentals

Getting to Lanai can be a bit of a concern because it is impossible to fly directly to the island from the lower 48 states or Alaska. Instead, you must travel to Maui and either take a boat or small plane to Lanai City. Once on the island, you may want a rental car to move around to the various locations. Lanai City and Koele are the major cities of the island. Lanai City has a population of 3,193 which does not even make it a city in most people’s eyes but rather a quaint town. Temperatures will remain between 70 and 85 degrees Fahrenheit year-round with about 37 inches of rainfall a year. Lanai City is a bit cooler because of the mountain elevation but you still have shorts-wearing weather to enjoy.

Lanai Condos Near the Golf Clubs

The finest golfing to be found on the island is located in Koele and Manele which are close to some of the Lanai condo locations. The courses are world-class in their championship set-up. If you do not golf, do not worry as there are plenty of activities for non-golfers on the island. Nature-lovers will enjoy the pine Munro Trail where you can lose yourself in the peaceful and well conserved forest. It is possible to look out at the ocean for Spinner dolphins from Hulopoe Bay. They are one of the more aerobatic species of dolphin, granting you a scene that is hard to witness in any other state. If there are no dolphins, spend your time looking in the tide pools for other sea creatures or take a snorkel trip out to the reefs. Diving is a must for anyone who wishes to view the crystal-clear waters from below and the amazingly stocked reefs. Lanai is home to Shipwreck Beach, named for the WWII-era ship that is trapped there.

Historical Sites Found on Lanai

Nature is not the only attraction one can find on Lanai. There are four historical sites you should travel to in between hammock naps and surfing the waves. Lanaihale is a trail which takes you up the 3,370-foot mountain named after George Munro. Munro planted pine trees along the trail. These pine trees came from New Zealand. From the hiking or driving trail, you can spot Oahu, Molokai, Maui, and Kahoolawe. Keahikawelo or the Garden of the Gods is another remarkable feature of Lanai due to the rock tower formations. Those who have visited the area say the garden of rock towers glows in the sunset. Manele Harbor provides more than beautiful views and boats, as it is home to the largest collection of petroglyphs. Finally, for historical sites, there is Kaunolu Village. It was once the favored fishing area for King Kamehameha I. Today, you are able to see the ruins of the village which left behind 85 house platforms and a religious temple.

Cuisines and Fresh Fish on Lanai

Lanai Beach rentals ensure that you have a fully equipped kitchen for cooking fresh fish and seafood you catch during the day. However, if you are ready for something a little different, you can visit the city’s restaurants with their authentic Hawaiian dishes. Many will have a Pacific bent like the Filipino dishes common on the Hawaiian islands.
