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

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.

Kumulani Kohala Coast Big Island HI

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I were here for a month. We have visited the Big Island a few times now, and this is the best place we have stayed to date. It is a ground floor condo in a quiet and well-maintained 15 year old gated development in the Uplands area above Hapuna and Mauna Kea resorts and beaches, about 40 minutes north of the Kona airport. Located at the north end of the development overlooking a golf course, the condo itself is clean, comfortable, and includes a large kitchen with top quality cookery, large living room and master bedroom, a smaller second bedroom, and a den area. It has an amazing, and completely unobstructed westerly view, and we spent many hours on the large lanai enjoying it. The owner is attentive and responsive. The owner dealt with a small maintenance problem promptly. Resort staff are always available but unobtrusive. A car is required as grocery shopping, farmers markets, sightseeing, and restaurants are at least 15 minutes driving time away. Although the area is hilly, there are good traffic free areas for walking, or you can drive a short way to the beaches and walk in the sand and the surf. If this is your first visit to the Big Island this would be an excellent choice. We will be back!

2nd stay wonderful!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I enjoyed our second stay in this fabulous first floor condo in the Kumulani development. This Kohala Coast condominium collection is contained within The Uplands of Mauna Kea Resort and is located on the upper Mauna Kea golf course. We used the beach and pool privileges every single day. Having this access as a part of the rental package really enhances your experience. The big island is our favorite Hawaiian Island and when you've checked out all the other beaches over the years, Mauna Kea's beach stands out as the best. The condo is plenty big for two couples or a family and the owner has outfitted it with every convenience. The kitchen is very well equipped and roomy. There are many restaurants on the North end of the island and the community of Waimea is a close drive with good grocery shopping and farmer's markets twice a week. There is an excellent local fish market 5 minutes away in Kawaihae Harbor. Lastly the owner rents the unit herself and is terrific to deal with. We'll definitely be back. Enjoy your stay.

More than expected! Everything you could want and then some.

  • 5 of 5

This lovely condo is very well appointed with absolutely everything you need for a wonderful vacation. The views are stunning and the two best beaches on the island are 2 minute drive away with full access at both the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince hotels.

No detail has been overlooked with loads of special thoughtful touches such as extra, easy to access outlets for all your electronics to plenty of coolers, beach toys and snorkel gear. The condo is immaculately clean and up to date with very tasteful decor. The beds are very comfortable with high quality linens. Papergoods, cleaning and laundry supplies and basic cooking condiments are there for you to use. The complex is very quiet and peaceful and this unit has a small lawn area plus that stunning view from almost every room. The owners could teach a class in exceptional service. The ownersmade the process of renting easy was very quick to respond and provides great information on how to access everything plus recommendations on what to do and where to eat. We loved the Red Water Cafe and Cafe Pesto for dinner- but also enjoyed sitting on our private lanai after fixing up our own meals (you have your own grill on the lanai).

This is our third trip to Big Island and have found our favorite place to stay- we will return to this condo in the future.

Perfect Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting a condo on the Big Island as we typically stay at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort Hotel or Mauna Lani. We traveled with our twin boys this time so for sanity purposes, we needed more room than a hotel room had to offer. We chose this condo based on location and signing rights/ amenities package for the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Hotel. This was perfect! The condo is more beautiful in person than the online videos and the location is wonderful. The only downside is that you do not hear the waves crashing outside your window (as you would in a beach hotel), but the sunset and view you get is breathtaking.

The location is great where you can easily drive to the neighboring towns (Waimea, Kawaihae harbor) for dinners or you can walk down to Hapuna (although the walk up is something less desired). We love the Big Island and will definitely go back to this condo again!

The owners are great to work with and have a nice reputation with the beach personnel at the Mauna Kea Beach. They supply everything that is needed for a great trip..all beach amenities as well as a well stocked condo. I would give this vacation and A+ and my husband and I both agree it was the easiest vacation with our boys to date.
