About the Property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms + Other (See Description), 3.5 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

To see the latest updates to our place and fun things to do go to "Big Island Pad" on Facebook! :)

We invite you to stay in our beautiful slice of Hawaii! Located in a private, gated community, The Villages offers guests maximum comfort and convenience. Our home is walking distance to all of Mauna Lani's amenities and cardkey access is provided to the newly updated Private Beach Club during your stay.

Built in the first stage of The Villages, our home offers unique features:

*Only unit in The Villages with lava rock wall from driveway to front door.
*Next to and behind one story units versus two story units means complete privacy with the added perk of afternoon/evening sun on the lanai!
*Mountain views from the front on a quiet side street with only 5 homes.
*All upgrades possible during construction of the unit
*New lounge chairs on the patio and a wonderful outdoor living room updates the lanai space! Pictures on fb

Enjoy the best of both worlds as you are shielded from the two main roads leading into The Villages by an expansive, raised tropically landscaped island- Peace of mind with smaller children as only a handful of homes sit on our quiet little street. It's a short 124 yard stroll to The Shops (Farmland Foods gourmet grocery store, Tommy Bahama Cafe, Ruth Chris, Cache and more)

The 'Lehua' layout has a great room concept that extends through a large window-wall pocket door, to a spacious lanai and yard creating a fun, entertaining space.

All kitchen items are top of the line and you will find nothing missing for any size meal you choose to prepare including, stainless steel appliances, *NEW* GE dishwasher, island with double sink, large Sub-Zero refrigerator, *NEW*coffee maker, coffee grinder, *NEW* toaster.

Upstairs, the master bedroom has a walk-in closet with built-ins, private balcony and large bathroom with spacious soaking tub. The second bedroom, upstairs, has two twin beds (can be converted to a king bed upon request) plus a twin size daybed and a private bath. The third bedroom, downstairs, is its own private suite with a queen bed and adjoining bathroom with a walk-in shower. A pocket door off the guest 1/2 bath reveals a large Laundry Room with Fisher Paykel w/d and is *stocked with complementary laundry soap* and beach towels during your stay. Flat screen t.v.'s in all rooms along with wireless Internet capability are provided.

The lanai has a beautiful refinished teak wood table and lounge chairs seating 6-8 people. The outside kitchen includes a built-in barbecue, refrigerator, and sink. In addition, a separate private patio off the kitchen awaits for sunbathing, morning coffee or a quiet reading spot.

Private Beach club access, fitness center access, and private (The Villages has THE WARM POOL in Mauna Lani!) pool/spa access, kid friendly.

Indoor living space- 2,174 sq. ft. plus over 600 sq. ft. of lanai's...Mahalo for looking at our listing!

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We are a family of five, all born and raised in Alaska. You can also visit us on Facebook at Big Island Pad!!

Why the Owner Chose Waimea, Hawaii County, HI, USA:
Mauna Lani is situated in the heart of the sunny Kohala coast. As past renters in Mauna Lani we found the The Villages to be the perfect combination of resort living (with easy access to it's amenities) yet peaceful and relaxing. Plus, the expansive lanais at The Villages invite you to live outside! We like the privacy of the homes, quality of construction and close proximity to the shops. The Villages' pool has a very nice temperature that is great for kids of all ages! We enjoy hanging out at the beach club and taking walks through the lava caves and fishponds. We love to play golf and tennis in Mauna Lani!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Returning guests to The Villages are pleasantly surprised by how private our unit is. There are no homes looking into our backyard. During the initial phase of construction, a lava wall was built between our unit and the next. We have been told that the cost of this wall became too expensive to replicate throughout the development so it is unique to our place! In addition, we think you'll love our home because of the open layout to the large private lanai and yard. Our home is professionally decorated with Tommy Bahama furniture and soothing paint colors- We strive to make the house comfortable so you feel at home while on your vacation in paradise! You'll enjoy the quick walk to the shops for the newspaper in the morning and the short stroll to the pool. We provide 4 Tommy Bahama beach chairs, 2 cruiser bikes and beach/pool toys for our guests to use.
