Gorgeous sunset view

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely the best view of the sunset on the ocean's horizon in Wai'ula'ula. My wife and I enjoyed the sunset every night during our stay and they were fantastic. The view looks straight down Hapuna's 15th fairway straight into the ocean. This unit in Wai'ula'ula is also located a short walk from the fitness center along with a pool and very nice hot tub. We have stayed in the Mauna Kea area for the last five years and find the weather, including the wind (or lack of it) to be perfect for outdoor activities.

Owner's Response: Our rental guests always seem to love the ocean and sunset views, the privacy and the designer furnishings. When we stay, we make it a point to watch that gorgeous sunset from the lanai almost every single evening we're there!

Fantastic Vacation Condo Rental - Best on Mauna Kea/Hapuna property

  • 5 of 5

My families fifth time renting this particular unit! It is by far the best condo we've rented on the island (and we've rented several). Extremely well stocked and equipped, beautifully furnished, with access to all Mauna Kea and Hapuna hotel amenities and a gorgeous westerly sunset view. The open floorpan is perfect for entertaining and cooking while enjoying the ocean/sunset views. I strongly recommend this unit over others. Also the management co and landlord are very helpful and super accommodating when needed. Aloha!

Owner's Response: We hear from our guests that they love the privacy, the ocean views, sunsets, design style and location to two of the best beaches on the Big Island. We have many return visitors who stay every year and welcome them back!

Fabulous and Tranquil Oasis near Gold Coas of Big Island.

  • 5 of 5

My family (3 of us) stayed at this home and it was great. A very beautiful second floor unit with overlaying views of the ocean, surrounding golf courses and fabulous reviews. The home was very comfortable and stocked with great ocean affair (boogie boards etc.), beach towels and more. The community gym was great as well as the infinity pool all in the same area. The owner was fantastic and very helpful throughout the entire process. Don't send friends any pictures from here though as they'll get

Made 50 Memorable

Our family of 4 spent my 50th birthday in the beauty of this island getaway. In each and every way, this property met and exceeded our expectations. The space and surroundings were not only comfortable but perfectly appointed to a vacation and get away without worry.

The owners take their time and pride in their property and it shows. We won't hesitate to return ...thank you!

A201 Wai 'ula iula

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this condo in October 2016. It is an excellent unit in the upscale Wai 'ula 'ula resort complex and has fantastic ocean, golf course, and sunset views. We found the unit to be very clean, well furnished and fully stocked with the amenities that we needed for our vacation. Patricia, the owner, was very easy with whom to work and she was available to address a minor plumbing issue that we experienced. Her service man quickly repaired the problem. We highly recommend this condo and we will not hesitate to contact Patricia when we plan our next vacation to the Big Island.

Family Golf Trip

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this beautiful condo last summer traveling with our college kids. Appreciated the ocean views while having coffee in the morning and drinks and dinner in the evening. You are overlooking one of the golf holes on the Hapuna Prince course. Our family played 18-36 holes of golf nearly every day. We also enjoyed a sailing trip in the little marina just north of Mauna Kea. (Was nice not to drive all the way into Kona.)

We did buy the resort package and mostly used the facilities at the Mauna Kea. It is a short drive down the hill and you do get a parking pass. We also took the opportunity to have family pictures taken professionally on the resort property.

We stayed with our family of four so each of our kids had their own room. Very spacious for our group. My sister and her family stayed down the road at Waikaloa but came over several evenings when we all cooked dinner together. Great time and experience! Thanks Patricia!

Owner's Response: Our VRBO guests always favorably compare our vacation home to other places they've rented in the past. Whether their main interest is Mauna Kea Beach (one of the most beautiful in the world!) swimming and water sports, golfing and tennis, or simply enjoying the ocean views and sunsets and getting away for a very relaxing time, it makes us happy to hear how much they enjoyed their stay!
