About Rose Marie Bauer

We are a retired couple who love Mauna Kea Beach and spend 4-5 months here every year. When this beautiful place with unbelievable unobstructed views became available, we couldn't pass it up. We closed escrow December 31, 2007 and have been enjoying our condo ever since. This picture was taken when our daughter visited in winter 2008.

Rose Marie Bauer purchased this condo in 2007

Fabulous, Comfortable Condo for the Family

  • 5 of 5

We have always stayed at the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel but couldn't get rooms for our stay this year. We happened upon the Bauer's wonderful, well located, and well-appointed condo and thoroughly enjoyed Christmas week. The Bauer's offer access to MK / Hapuna facilities through membership in the MK Club which bestow upon guests privileges at the beach, pools, the golf courses, tennis facilities, and charge privileges at the restaurants and bars. Our adult children and we hung out together, or didn't, both at the MK beach and at the condo. We cooked a few nights and drove up to Waimea or drove to down-coast resorts for dinners.

The MK hotel was exceptionally crowded this year (construction at the Hapuna, traveler advisories for MX, hurricane disasters across the Caribbean, etc.). As such, we actually loved getting OFF campus and away from the madding crowds for a reprieve at the condo.

The condo is perfect for two couples (our adult children shared a room). Getting in and and out was a breeze. The Bauers make sure you have all instructions, keys, and resort information well in advance of your arrival. You can park your rental in the garage or outside in parking spaces allocated to each condo cluster. The condo is located on the ground level so we were able to use the very comfortable lanai for lounging and cocktails at night. The view from the condo is stupendous.

Don't overpack; the condo has a washer and dryer. The kitchen is well-equipped and has some staples in the pantry (spices, herbs, etc.). A well-stocked linen closet provides beach towels, tons of additional bath towels, sheets, etc. You will not miss a step moving in to the unit. If you have time upon your arrival, I suggest you stop at the grocery store (at the Mauna Lani resort or Waikoloa Village) to buy provisions (think morning coffee) for your first couple days.

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at at condo!

An amazing, beautiful, relaxing, peaceful setting!

  • 5 of 5

This is a gorgeous place to stay! The condo itself is lovely, with all the amenities of home. The setting is relaxed (you can watch the sunset from the lanai every night); the location is close enough to shopping, but far enough to be "away from it all". I HIGHLY recommend this location for anyone wanting to be sure they have an outstanding vacation on the Big Island!

We stayed at this condo for a little over 2 weeks with 2 kids, ages 7 and 11. It could not have been more perfect. Everything we needed was here: boogie board, masks, fins, pool toys. The kitchen is well equipped and there is a fantastic grill on the lanai. Since this condo is at the end of the road, it gives a lovely private vibe. The lanai is perfect for eating a relaxing breakfast to start the day, and for watching the incredible sunsets at night. (We also had the luxury of staying over the 4th of July and were treated to an epic view of the Mauna Kea fireworks display from there without having to deal with any crowds! And the summer prior we stayed in this same condo in the first 2 weeks of August and were able to take in the Persied meteor shower from the front courtyard. )

The condo is comfortable, beautifully decorated, quiet, and quite frankly hard to leave at the end of the vacation.

The Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beaches are amazing and are so easily accessible. The Kumalani pool is also an added gem. It is much smaller than the two hotel pools, but most of the time that we used it, we were the only ones there. That was perfect for the kids.

Lastly, the Bauers are fantastic, organized, and very responsive.

Another terrific stay

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in this wonderful condo in the Kumulani development at the Mauna Kea Resort several times in the past and had another terrific stay. This year we stayed for almost one month and frankly it was not long enough. The owner is exceptionally responsive and immediately took care of a problem when we discovered the ceiling fan in the master bedroom did not work. The fans throughout the condo help keep the temperature comfortable. Within two days of notifying the owner of the problem, the fan was replaced with no fuss or muss at all. We've stayed elsewhere in Kumulani, and the view from this specific unit is exception and unobstructed. We enjoyed many beautiful sunsets from the patio. The kitchen is well stocked with good cookware and dishes. We will be back.
