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

Perfect stay-great amenities!

  • 5 of 5

This was the perfect place for us. We stay for 7 days and enjoyed the condo and amenities and look forward to returning. The kitchen was well stocked, plenty of beach accessories such as boogie boards, shoes, snorkel equipment. We used the community pool which was convenient. We signed up for the residential guest program at Moana Kea and i would definitely recommend this to anyone staying in the area.

Great location on the big island of Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

This is the third or fourth time we’ve stayed in this condominium on the Mauna Kea Resort property on the Kohala Coast of the island of Hawaii. We were fortunate to find this unit on VRBO and have always enjoyed our stays. Rose Marie is a wonderful host and has always been attentive to any request we’ve made. The unit is clean, nicely decorated and has a stunning unobstructed view across the golf course to the ocean. The weather on this part of the island is not adversely impacted by the Vog that the southern end of the island can be impacted with from the Kilauea volcano. To maximize your enjoyment of the resort property, we highly recommend you splurge on the optional hotel amenity package.

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!
