Property description

BEST LOCATION AND VIEWS! Enjoy the facilities of Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince Beach Resorts with all the comforts of home. We have one of the very best units in Wai'Ula'Ula, located close to the exclusive Wai'Ula'Ula amenity center and with panoramic unobstructed views of the ocean and picturesque coast to the south. We are on the ground floor and have our own private lawn area. We look straight down the golf course fairway to the Pacific beyond. Come view an awesome sunset over the Pacific from our lanai!

WE WELCOME FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN. Our condo is furnished in tasteful contemporary style with a local island flair. It comfortably sleeps 8 -- ideal for 1 or 2 couples or families. Two well-appointed master suites with king-size beds plus a 3rd bedroom furnished for kids, with dual bunk beds, each sleeping 1 or 2 on the bottom plus a 3rd on the top bunk. There is a separate TV with DVD player in the kids' room. Unit includes laundry with full-size washer and dryer.

This 2,100 SQ.FT. GROUND FLOOR condominium was new in 2006 and offers spacious indoor living areas and an expansive wrap-around outdoor patio/lanai. The unit has coffered ceilings in the great room, dining room, and dual master suites, zoned air conditioning throughout, plantation ceiling fans, and cherry wood cabinetry. The large kitchen has an island for casual seating, granite countertops, and is equipped with top-of-the-line appliances.

Large living room/family room with large screen LCD TV and DVD player. High-speed wireless internet is there when you need it. Lanai is fully equipped with Wolf gas BBQ, bar sink, and under counter refrigerator. This is an ideal setting for outdoor entertaining or relaxing with a cold beer in the afternoon sun.

Here are a few reviews from our renters:

'I am sitting in the living room of the Hopkins' condo as I type. My 5-year-old son is napping (hours on the beach and pool can wear even the most determined non-sleeper down) on 'the coolest bunk beds in the world;' my wife and daughter walked up to the infinity pool for more swim time. The condo is top-notch in every way. It is beautifully furnished and situated in a great location for views as well as access to the pool and fitness center.

The location of the condo development on the grounds of the Mauna Kea Resort is excellent. This is the first time we have stayed in Hawaii and not felt packed in with other vacationers. We are a short ride to the Hapuna Prince Beach Resort and its amazing beach and are within a 15 minute drive of a whole range of other resorts. But the best part is, when we’re at the condo, we don’t feel like we’re in resortville! In other words, this place offers the best of both worlds. We’ll be back!'

-- the Bernard family, Portland, OR

'Your condominium was beautiful. It was so nicely decorated and accommodating for a family of five. The ability to access the pool and beach at Hapuna Beach was a nice extra. We are definitely interested in staying there again some time.'

-- the Feldman family, Los Altos, CA

'Quite simply, the condo was spectacular - our family was there for the first week of 2010 and our only regret was that we would have liked to have spent more time there. In the past we have stayed at the Mauna Kea Hotel; however, now that we have 2 small children we find it challenging to stay in hotels. Staying at this condo was a great balance - we had a luxurious, spacious condo with every amenity that you could imagine plus had signing privileges at the Mauna Kea which was a 5 minute drive. We were treated and felt as if we were guests at the hotel but felt that we were at an advantage since we were able to sleep in a beautifully furnished, 2100 square foot home as opposed to a 500 sq. foot room. Did I mention the amazing views? Highly recommended and we will be back!'

-- the Youn family, Orinda, CA

'We want to thank you for allowing us to stay in your palatial abode. It was the most relaxing part of our trip and your outdoor patio/kitchen was just wonderful. We found it even more beautiful than your VRBO photos.

Your expansive, spectacular ocean view just took our breath away every morning as we lingered over our aromatic Kona coffee on the lanai. Several in our party had not visited the Big Island before and experiencing it with your place as our home base was just a giant bonus. Having access to the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince resorts could not have been more convenient. I even used the shuttle back to the townhouse when our group split up on various adventures and I was without a car and it was so easy and fast. We swam with turtles off the Mauna Kea beach and found the snorkeling there surprisingly good. The easy access to horseback riding in Waipio, Manta ray snorkeling from the Kona harbor and art browsing in Hawi, made us realize that your location just truly can’t be beat.

We rarely (if ever) say we want to return to a place because we like to try something new every time we travel (so many places so little time!). But this was so special and worked out so well for our group, we would very much like to return to your piece of paradise. So many, many mahalos for helping put smiles on the faces of our teenagers, taking the work stress away from my husband and making our family getaway the best yet!!'

Best beach on the island is at Mauna Kea Hotel, just downhill from our condo. Beautiful white sand, good surf in winter, calm in summer. Great for paddle-boarding.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: We live in N. California most of the year, where we have enjoyed productive careers in health care. We look forward to spending time at our retreat in paradise with family and friends.

Why the Owner Chose Kamuela, HI, USA:
We fell in love with Mauna Kea Resort the first time we visited there many years ago. We couldn't wait to own property there to enjoy during our retirement, and so we were thrilled to discover this new low-density development before it was built and when we could have our choice of locations.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Amazing views, sitting on our lanai and watching the sun set over the ocean. Close proximity to Mauna Kea and Hapuna beaches, which are the best on the island. Also, a short drive to Waimea, which has remained a quaint Hawaiian village.
