About Donna Brucato
We live on the mainland but love to come to our home as often as we can. It has such a quiet wonderful feel.
Donna Brucato purchased this House in 2011
Why Donna Brucato chose Island of Hawaiʻi
We have vacationed at Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach for years and love this part of Hawaii best. We have always wanted to own a home here and finally had the opportunity to purchase this beautiful home.
What makes this House unique
This home is very private, with only one other house on the north side. Two sides of the house have a green belt of native plants. Wonderful sweeping views of the ocean and coast line both to the north and south. We grow organic papaya and banana trees bearing fruit most of the year for our clients. There are also a variety of citrus and pineapple in season. Lovely lanai along entire west side of the house with teak lounges and tables and chairs. New gas grill for outdoor meals. Enjoy the sunsets from the great room, lanai or swimming pool and spa. If you choose the amenity package, you can enjoy the same amenities we do at both hotels--including reduced fees for golf at both Mauna Kea and Hapuna, tennis at the seaside courts at Mauna Kea, beach and pool access at both hotels (including beach towels, lounge chairs and umbrellas).

House was perfect. Loved every minute of it.
Great.view, pool was perfect, supplies including beach and water was enough.
Only complaint is my response from the property manager when a stranger walked in the bedroom w my son and daughter in law sleeping unannounced. It was invasive. There was a explanation but no apology. Apologies go a long way.
Wow! This is news to me! We would never take lightly to anyone walking in on anyone! I’m so sorry! I will call you to find out what happened!
Overall this is a very nice place. The view was exceptional - we could see the snow on Haleakala one morning. This is one of the earlier houses built in the development (circa 2001 I believe) so is a little more dated than others in the area, but perfectly acceptable for vacation. However, with this vintage, you also get a bigger pool, which is a bonus; it is actually swim-able, unlike the smaller pools at the newer models. Also, it is very convenient off the main road, and very quiet; there are houses beneath it on the road below, but you can barely tell they are there. Another bonus is that it is managed by Donna Brucato, who does an excellent job managing her properties, and also providers a concierge service that is very helpful organizing activites, answering general questions about the property, etc.
The garage was well stocked with boogie boards, snorkel equipment (lots of it), coolers, etc.
The separate bed/bath was very convenient to give a bit of space at night.
From the minute you open the front door and see the expansive ocean view, you know you are in paradise! The house is everything as described and MORE! The location, views, landscaping, pool/spa, are beyond perfect. The house is immaculate and very well appointed. The beds were very comfortable and all house linens were crisp and clean. The kitchen is very well stocked, making cooking or grilling easy and fun. Donna could not have been a more gracious and professional contact. Nathalie, the concierge, had everything we asked for waiting upon our arrival. All the appliances were in working order and house instructions were very clear. The two resorts you have access to are easy to get to and are both wonderful properties. We have rented homes around the country and abroad, and this house definitely ranks at the top on every level. A perfect Hawaiian vacation house!!!!!
Perfect house in perfect location on the Big Island
First and foremost, the house was 100% as advertised in VRBO. We were a party of four (two couples), and this property was perfect, as it had two full master bedrooms and baths on opposite sides of the house. The absolute best thing for us was that the living room, dining room and pool/spa area faced directly west for the sunsets, and they were unbelievable each and every evening. We spent the days exploring all the cool things the Big Island has to offer by vehicle, and then cooked on the grill or in the kitchen, eating on the dining room table inside or outside on the patio. Each evening, we retired to the heated pool/spa for talk of the days events. The roads are all great on the Big Island, so it was very easy to get to all parts of the island for sightseeing. We were not prepared to golf on this vacation, but next time we will be, as the courses right there and nearby are phenomenal. The location of the house was optimal, as there are only two houses in a small, private gated area, nestled above all the other houses below, so there was very little noise and no obstruction of the panoramic ocean/sunset views. This was our best overall experience with VRBO, and we thank everyone involved for the wonderful property and the great time we all had on the Big Island from July 7 through July 19, 2017.
Sunset views, great location and perfectly organized
I can't thank the owners enough for having everything so thoughtfully organized. We had a wonderful stay with our family of 6 adults. We had great BBQ's most nights and spent our days at the Mauna Kea Beach. With the club parking included in the daily club package it was so convenient. We loved that all 3 bedrooms were master suites so everyone had a large and spacious room and bath. The owners provided everything we needed from paper towels, dishwasher soap, even Olive oil and spices for our cooking needs so we didn't need to purchase so much for a short week stay. This home was so well organized with every cabinet and drawer labeled and enough glasses,dishes and pots and pans to make cooking at home really easy. It inspired me to better organize my own things at home better:). It is a quiet and peaceful home that we look forward to renting again. Much Aloha!🌴�🍍�🐠�
Everything went very well. House was clean and well-kept. Also, there were some staple provisions there which was very helpful Only difficulty we encountered was on the day of arrival - the lockbox did not work as per the instructions and the address was incorrect (two numbers were transposed) in the instructions that were sent to us. A few minor things in the house need a little attention but nothing at all serious. We were very pleased with the rental and would go back there again if it was still available.
We are so excited that you enjoyed your stay and want to come back! We want you too! And I'm glad we cleared up any misunderstandings and was relieved to research that the arrival paperwork was correct. Looking forward to your return! Hikialani Resort Destinations
