'The Peaceful Dragon'' Top floor spacious 2/2 with bonus Loft
average rating of 5.0 based on 14 reviews

Perfect kohala locale for family

  • 5 of 5

Wonderful! Very peaceful, quiet, spacious and nicely decorated

Tons of amenities--toaster, panini press etc so comfy to eat in room

Pool on site never crowded, often had to ourselves

12 minute walk to a great swimming beach with protected calm lagoon, and another beach with off beach snorkeling on a private protected beach

Only downside of mauna lani is limited choices for restaurants, only a few nearby and all very $$$$. So what, drive 15-25 min and lots of options!

I cannot imagine a better condo!

Our favorite condo!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many condos on the Kohala coast and this is our favorite by far. Very spacious, well furnished, and a great location. The lanai overlooks the pool and beautiful landscaping. We liked how it was a smaller condo subdivision with plenty of parking and very quiet. The access to the beach club was great - and only a 10-15 minute walk. We will definitely rent this condo again!!

Peaceful Tropical Oasis!!

  • 5 of 5

We loved this condo...spacious lanai and master bedroom overlooks the quiet pool, hot tub and waterfall...Lush older landscaping for a newer small condo subdivision. Located next to the Mauna Lani spa, tennis and work out area. Cannot wait to go back!

First time VRBO

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were extremely pleased with our first VRBO condo rental. The Peaceful Dragon was as portrayed and described on the website... the unit was beautifully decorated and well appointed... especially the kitchen! Having an abundance of dinner and cookware, dish/towels, bed linen and access to beach equipment became the envy of friends who also rented a unit at the Palm Villas. The general grounds and pool area were daily attended to by support staff and reflected a genuine commitment to customer excellence. Sometimes it's the little things that make the most impact on travellers and such was true in our case! All queries with the unit's Manager were professionally and promptly handled. Thank you so much, Cindi, for your activity recommendations! We will definitely recommend this unit to our family and friends.

Restful, relaxed vacation home

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful, restful place to spend a relaxed vacation! The accomidations are exceptional and very well furnished. A very spacious home-away-from-home, with an intimate feel but allowing privacy to read or snooze when desired. The kitchen is well supplied with excellent appliances and the laundry is well designed, making for a very relaxed holiday. The high speed wireless internet is very good, allowing for easy access to the web for browsing and researching day trip plans. The Palm Villas properties are very well maintained making the overall environment restful. The nearby beach club, easily reached by a short walk of under 30 minutes, has an exceptional beach for snorkeling; the water is fairly calm, allowing even timid swimmers to feel comfortable and enjoy the wonderful variety of tropical fish. The beach itself is beautiful and very peaceful; a wonderful place to read, enjoy the sun and take in the tropical atmosphere. The nearby shops in the Mauna Lani or other close by shopping centers provide full service shopping both for daily needs as well as for gifts. The Mauna Lani area is an ideal base for island exploration, both south to Kona or east to Hilo and on to Volcano. I have stayed at this property several times and continue to come back because it offers the wonderful restful benefit of being a true home-away-from-home.

Lovely, spacious condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a very nice stay here. Our two teen daughters loved being able to go to their own space if they wanted. Beds were comfortable, plenty of seating. TV was great and easy to use. The pool was nice and close. This is a very quiet complex, but the walls are pretty thin. We could hear our neighbors' conversation and music frequently, even though we are pretty sure they weren't being unreasonably loud. The condo itself is nicely equipped. I was impressed at the amount and quality of kitchen supplies: even a waffle maker and panini press! Plenty of fluffy towels, laundry detergent, cleaning supplies. The only thing that was missing was hand soap in the bathrooms (I was happy to pick some up at the nearby Foodland) The Mauna Lani resort is beautiful. The shoreline access trail is just around the corner, and we had lovely runs around the fishponds many days. The shops are an easy walk, too. Cindy was great. We would definitely recommend this place to friends.
