Beautiful property in stunning Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

This house has it all. It was great for a family of five with the small baby. We loved having our own pool and we were continuously amazed at how well stocked the property was with everything we could possibly want or need. A cat is necessary to get around, but beach access in several great restaurants are no more than a 10 minute drive at most.

The unit comes with an excellent gas grill and the hot tub is a perfect way to wind down each day while looking at the stars. We could not recommend this property enough and we can’t wait to come back.

Beautiful home with Wonderful view

  • 4 of 5

My family and I spent 2 weeks at this home. The house with it's 3 bedrooms and family room was just the right size for my adult children. My 5 year old grandson thought the family room was his person domain until he had to share it with his uncle for 3 days.

The swimming pool was a slight disappointment. The pool is very deep. Our grandson is pool safe but it would have been better for him if it was shallow at one end. The house fees only provides for the hot tub to be heated for 4 hours each evening. I was spending enough on house that I didn't want to add pool fee to our vacation. We called after the first week and requested 2 hours in morning and 2 hours at dinner. Donna was able to make it happen.

We had spent other vacations at the resort so we knew the advantage of having a golf cart to get to and from the public beaches. The golf cart was again a high light for easy transport with small children and all of their gear.

The only negative was not the fault of the house but we were sad when we arrived to find the Hapuna Hotel and pool were under constructions. We have always enjoyed a meal at the hotel but all common areas were closed and wouldn't be opened again until spring 2017. Getting to the Hapuna Beach was near impossible using hotel so we were happy we had planned to use public beaches rather than the hotels, avoiding resort fees.

If you are thinking of using the house it is in a great location with an outstanding view. Mahalo

Best vacation ever.

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time at this house. We were a group of three couples and 4 kids under 2.5 yrs old. The open floor plan, natural light, comfortable outdoor area and perfectly refreshing pool made being stuck at the house during nap times completely fine. The kitchen was nicely stocked with pretty much everywhere we needed and we ended up cooking and grilling at the house almost every night. The only issue, which we knew going in, was the imbalance in bedroom options with two amazing masters and one perfectly fine, but small queen.

The house is about a 6-7 minute drive to the hotel + then the 4 ish min walk from the parking lot down to the exquisite Mauna Kea Beach. Because we could only park one car down there with our Mauna Kea resort access, we rented a golf cart that we could drive basically right up to the beach. I would highly recommend this! Not only is it a fun and beautiful drive (be prepared to have to awkwardly sneak across the golf course in one place), it was so so convenient.

Marsie, the on-site property manager was so helpful. She even answered and came over at midnight when one of the smoke alarm batteries was chirping. We were understandably hugely grateful for her help.

If you haven't been to the Mauna Kea before, I cannot express how the loveliness of this hotel and beach. Having also been to Waimea in Maui, this beach is another level of amazing--caribbean blue, warm water, and post-card perfect sunsets. There is everything you need with none of the fuss or pretense you might see at say, the Four Seasons.

Again, best vacation we can remember and the house completely delivered upon our expectations. Thank you Donna!

Wonderful Stay!

  • 5 of 5

Hi Donna.

Thank you for sharing your wonderful home with our family. The girls loved their “sleepover” space and were in the pool every afternoon after the beach. It was the perfect space for our two families to share. We had a wonderful vacation!

This Home was Wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

This home was wonderful! The pool and patio were a gathering place from breakfast to star-gazing. Everything we needed to feel at home was there. My granddaughter called it a mansion! We can't wait to return!
