Lovely garden setting

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for a week with another couple and enjoyed the lovely garden setting with lots of birds. The best part was the 15 min walk through the lava park and the lagoon to a beautiful sheltered beach, where we snorkeled and took walks along the path on the shore in both directions. Great whale viewing in February. The condo is very well equipped if you like to cook. It has a lot of fans if you prefer not to use the air conditioner and the washer/dryer were easy to use. Everything was in tip top shape. There is a great hot tub in the complex and my husband enjoyed the small exercise room next to the pool. The only problem was difficulty finding parking inside the condo complex gates if you get back after around 7 pm. We only had this problem once because we tended to cook dinner at home. We enjoyed the north side of the island immensely after spending past vacations south of Kona.

Owner's Response: Thank you for staying with us. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and our beautiful area. We are located on-site. The parking can be a problem at night mostly only during peak times but if you call us we will work something out so you won't have this problem.

Nice stay with a few glitches

  • 3 of 5

Upon arrival the condo was beautiful and spotlessly clean. Well appointed and supplied with linens. We had some difficulty with the code on the main gate and were forced to call Cindy for assistance. She came quickly to help, but then informed us that the latch on the dishwasher had broken and it could not be used. This was a Saturday. The part had been ordered but would not arrive for a while and then the repair had to be scheduled. We are a family who cooks many of our own meals, so I was distressed at the thought of doing dishes for most of our vacation. To be fair, this was unforeseen and Cindy did offer and eventually provide compensation in the form of a gift certificate to Tommy Bahamas which we enjoyed. The repair was done near the end of our stay. Apparently all of the new Samsung appliances in the unit have had issues. The complex is very well maintained except for the community gas grill which only had one working burner. It was beautifully landscaped. The pool and spa were great., as was the access to the Beach Club. It is very quiet in the complex in the evening, which is a plus, but beware that because of the design of the Lanai normal conversation out there carries far and can easily disturb others. Overall we enjoyed our stay, but I am not sure I would return.

This unit is one of the nicest we have stayed in. New appliances, nicely decorated and a beautiful view of the palms etc, by the pool.

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!
