About The Owner

We both grew up near the ocean, one in Massachusetts, and the other in California. We have been traveling to Hawaii since before we were married in 1990. The Big Island has drawn us back time after time. We found the slower pace and warmer weather of the Kohala Coast ideal. We enjoy all the outdoor activities - snorkeling, golf, tennis, hiking, fishing and especially whale watching. We hope that you and your family will enjoy and appreciate the Big Island as much as we do with our family and friends. Mahalo!

Beautiful home and stunning, convenient location. 1000% recommend!

  • 5 of 5

This house was wonderfully convenient for our family vacation, especially with my mother-in-law who has a walker. Everything was available for our use, from a fully equipped kitchen to beach and pool supplies and bedding/towels. Our family came for a 6 day vacation and the only issue we had was we didn’t book it for longer! If you are looking for a place that makes you feel at home, has easy access to the highway and attractions, is private and secure, and has the comforts of home, this is the place for you.

Our family especially appreciated the private beach club access, which we went several times to the beach to go snorkeling. The reef and many fish were amazing. The pool, fitness center, and other amenities in the housing community were an extra bonus as well. The Shops at Mauna Lani also offered the convenience of grocery shopping, souvenirs, and restaurants. They even had free hula and fire dancing entertainment!

Thank you for a fantastic vacation!

Great family vacation

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in many rental units in a number of countries over the years but this was by far the nicest and best equipped. Kitchen had everything you needed right down to the smallest detail including an assortment of condiments and even tupperware for leftovers and cloth shopping bags for groceries. Located in a VERY quiet neighborhood close to many beaches, the pool was a 2 minute walk away and was empty every night we were there. The kids had a swim before bed inwhat was essentially their own private pool! There are no street lights so streets and pool area are very dark in the evening but there were flashlights in the drawer. The foodland just down the road is great and prices were quite reasonable despite what others may say. There is also a free hula show in the courtyard adjacent to the store two nights a week which was an unexpected bonus.

Owner of this unit is well organized, very approachable and responds quickly to emails. This rental unit was certainly more costly than others we have rented but you get what you pay for I guess. You certainly would not be disappointed with your stay here. If the opportunity arose we would definitely rent this unit again.

Very comfortable and beautiful home.

  • 5 of 5

This home was perfect for our multi-generational family of 7. Each of the 4 bedrooms opens to a lanai. We made extensive use of the fully equipped kitchen and bar b q. Everything was clearly labeled and there was both an instruction book for appliances and a concierge book with info. about local grocery stores, beaches, hikes, etc. Walking distance to the pool and gym, which my husband used every morning. We especially appreciated the beach chairs, boogie boards and use of a cooler for beach days and day trips. This beautiful home made our trip one to remember!

Comfortable Home with Great Amenities

  • 5 of 5

KaMilo 212 is a very nicely appointed home in a great neighborhood of similar townhomes. The home was comfortable for our party of eight with only the smaller bedroom being less than desirable for one of our couples in the group. The home is nicely furnished and very well equipped for vacation living. The neighborhood is very quiet and sedate save for some small scale construction work nearby. The home is just around the corner from the expansive pool and fitness facilities which are immaculately maintained, as is the entire development. Having access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club as part of the rental was an excellent added benefit as the Club(bar and restaurant and equipment rental) has a great beach for snorkeling and paddle boarding. The home is also located near other great beaches as well, Hapuna and Puako. All in all a great place that allowed us to have an excellent vacation experience. Thanks.

Better than advertised! Thanks Syd!

  • 5 of 5

We had an incredible 10 day stay in Kamilo 212. First let me say, I always take reviews with a grain of salt, thinking perhaps they are friends of the owner. I've never met Syd (the owner of Kamilo 212), I found this home on VRBO.

Our family stays in the Mauna Lani area every year, but usually stay in a 2br condo at the nearby Mauna Lani Islands, which is wonderful. This time we needed more space, so we found this home on VRBO. This home (and Ka-Milo in general) was so much better, and for a very small price difference! This will be our new spot.

First, the home: Syd was a pleasure to deal with via email, the transaction was simple. The house is immaculately clean, bug free, still seems brand new, and is laid out so well, even for a large family of 10 (which we were). We were not on top of one another at all, and the rooms are perfectly spread out, so you don't hear one another when you go to your rooms at night (even with our 4 kids). The beds are extremely comfortable, great linens, and each bedroom has a full bathroom (one is a jack and jill to share, but plenty of space, and perfect for families who want their kids close by). Each room is spacious and quiet, and comfortable. The AC works great, it was 90 degrees and muggy when we were there but the house was always super cool and comfortable. The kitchen is huge and fully stocked with everything you need (including condiments/coffee fixings, etc), we literally had everything we needed. The lanai is private and has great furniture and BBQ. The garage is stocked with beach toys and chairs, bikes, golf clubs, pack n' play, a tire pump, and a handy wagon to take to the beach. I've stayed in a lot of rentals in my day, and never seen one with so much stuff to use for free. Every detail has been thought of to make your stay more comfortable. While the house is technically a duplex, the way it is laid out you really don't even realize there is another home attached. It's EXTREMELY private.

The Kamilo resort is awesome. Super quiet, secure, and well maintained. The pools are AMAZING. We've stayed at the Hualalai four seasons, and their pools aren't much better. The neighborhood is very close to the store, the fairmont hotel (great beach) and the beach club is a short drive away, which is our favorite beach on earth for families.

Honestly, look no further. For the money, this was the best rental we've ever stayed at.

Thanks Syd!
