About John M.

The Owners live in Minnesota and started coming to Hawaii 18 years ago and have never tired of it. In their words.... For us, coming to the Big Island in the winter from snowy Minnesota is the best way to escape the cold and ice. Our favorite activities are snorkeling, golfing, and hiking. We simply cannot get enough of the beautiful ocean tide pools of swimming green sea turtles and jumping whales. The temperate climate, the unique Hawaiian culture, the seafood, the flowers, the stunning beaches and the evening sunsets make us long to come back each time we leave. Our children look forward to each trip here, where they can enjoy a laid back lifestyle and take much needed vacations from their busy lives. It has become a place where our family gathers and enjoys our time together. We love the endless opportunities to sightsee, whether it is a beautiful drive up the Kohala coast, or activities in the ocean, mountains, or parks. We like it all…hiking, biking, golf, snorkeling, diving, horseback riding or just lying on a beach. We have never tired of each day ending with a stunning sunset over the ocean less then 0.4 miles from our home. Did I mention there is an active Volcano on the island?

John M. purchased this villa in 2013

Why John M. chose Puako

We simply love Hawaii!

After many years of visiting different Hawaiian Islands, we decided to make The Mauna Lani Villages on the Big Island our second home. Our Villages home offers the unique chance to be close to great restaurants, hotels, shopping, beaches and sunsets. The private Mauna Lani Beach Club, which is available to our renters, is a large private beach with a great restaurant. In addition to The Villages amenities center, which offers a community pool, spa and workout facility, we are close to the Mauna Lani Fitness center.

What makes this villa unique

After renting in many different complexes in Mauna Lani, we fell in love with The Villages. We think our one level home is beautifully constructed and is of quality design. It has a huge updated kitchen with great air flow to enjoy Hawaiian breezes, with 3 bedrooms and 3.5 baths. The master bedroom has an outdoor shower. Each room is comfortably decorated with Pacific/Asian art and antiques. We have tried to obtain art that reflects Hawaiian culture from the large arts community that resides on the Big Island. Each bedroom has its own TV, walk-in closet and full bathroom. The office offers free internet, and a printer/fax machine. The living room TV allows for rental of Netflicks and Apple TV. The vaulted mahogany living room moves seamlessly from an inside environment to an outside lani. The lani offers unobstructed views of the golf course and mountains. The pool and spa offer a comfortable way to unwind after a day of sightseeing.

Comfort heaven in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The pictures of the website were very promising but the property is even more beautiful live. The house is very spacious, decorated with great taste and extremely well appointed with everything you could need on vacation and more so you rapidly feel at home. It is an easy walk to the resort supermarket and to few restaurants for those lazy nights. Highly recommended.

Beautiful property, very hitech, and very well appointed and maintained.

  • 5 of 5

Three adult couples had a reunion and it was outstanding. We dined in often and the barbque was well used. Everything we needed was there, and Diana the property manager made sure we were well at home. The dishwasher broke, and Diana had a replacement quickly. The Nest thermostats were challenging for us old folks, but the AC was great on some warm, windless days. Can't say enough excellent about the whole vacation.

A luxurious house beautifully furnished and containing everything you need for a relaxing stay.

  • 5 of 5

The house was beautifully and tastefully furnished and contained everything we needed to entertain ourselves. The pool was also great and everything was clean and fresh.

The location was perfect with amenities, shops and restaurants close by and the beach only a 15 minute walk away.

Our host Diana was responsive and helpful.

Would definitely recommend.

Beautiful house and property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family has stayed at several homes through VRBO and this was without a doubt the best. Everything was first class, the house was stocked with everything a family could need from pantry items to snorkeling gear, bikes; paddle board, etc. The pool was awesome too. I also want to mention that all of the correspondence with Diana were smooth and easy. She was very accommodating to our family from beginning to end. Absolute top notch experience, our family did not want to leave! Thank you Diana for a great experience, we will be back!

Everything was first class!

  • 5 of 5

First of all, thank you for a wonderful experience. Everything was first class. We have stayed at a lot of rental houses before but never at one that was stocked so well. We really appreciate everything!

Don't think twice - book this home!

The Best Renter Experience Ever

  • 5 of 5

I have been renting in Hawaii for the last 10 years or so, yet this is my first review. Booking was extremely easy, I like the availability calendar feature on the website, since everything I do is last minute it speeds the process. When I booked I mentioned we were celebrating my mother's 88th birthday as a throw away comment. On the day of our arrival I got a text welcoming us, it was incredibly detailed on how to get to the property and more importantly how to get in the gated community after hours. When we opened the door balloons and a birthday lei along with a gift basket were waiting for my mother, nice touch. The air conditioning was also turned on so the house would be cool for our arrival. The house was perfect for 7 people. The furnishings were more or less new and in good condition. The lanai had a pool and hot tub. All the appliances were top end and the ice maker worked. The property was immaculate, had plenty of towels, detergent and bleach for the washer and condiments/spices in the kitchen. The garage had bikes and beach toys. In a nutshell, this was the nicest, most user friendly place we ever rented. Kudos to Diana from the reality company for making our experience on the big island a happy one.
