Property description


Insiders know about the Mauna Kea Villas, and THIS STUNNING villa with a beautiful interior space was the original model at Mauna Kea because of its superb location. It is most private, has unparalleled views, contemporary art, and is just a short walk to the world renowned Mauna Kea beach, golf course and tennis pavilion.

The expansive, completely unobstructed ocean views face west and south, and from the lanai looking inland, the majestic Mauna Kea, Mauna Loa, and Hualalai Volcanoes are all within view. From this Villa you can hear the surf breaking and can also see the bay at Mauna Kea’s Kauna’oa beach. The year round sunsets are exquisite, and you can enjoy whale watching from your private lanai.

AN INFINITY EDGE SOLAR HEATED POOL and trickling fountain on your private lanai is irresistible. Luxuriate in cooling off after a fun day in the tropics, or start your day with a sunrise swim.

THE LARGE, WELL STOCKED KITCHEN is equipped for the needs of any home chef, and a private chef can be arranged for you. Upon your arrival you will not need to purchase items such as sponges, food wrap, dishwasher detergent, paper towels. Appliances include a new large Subzero refrigerator, a new Miele dishwasher, new microwave, oven, and gas cooktop, and all you need to brew the perfect cup of freshly ground Kona coffee. There is a new outdoor BBQ grill on the lanai and an outdoor dining table with seating for 6, where every morning you can enjoy your morning coffee and listen to the island wake up.

During your stay at the villa you will enjoy the WHOLE HOME SOUND SYSTEM, a TV in each bedroom, Apple TV, DVR, Cable TV, DVD player and a small DVD collection. You can record your favorite TV shows and televised sports events while you are out for the day and come back to watch them at your convenience.

Many of our longtime guests describe this villa as the best due to its PRIVACY and proximity to the hotel - it is the last villa at the end of a cul de sac with no villas in front or behind - the ONLY rentable villa with this description.

Our CAPABLE AND EXPERIENCED PROPERTY MANAGER provides each of our guests with personalized attention, and can arrange for light grocery stocking prior to your arrival as well as any reservations you may need.

The Mauna Kea Resort has offered world class service and amenities since 1965, including two magnificent beaches, nine restaurants, oceanside tennis courts, spa facilities, and 36 holes of championship golf. With a Resort Amenities Card, guests have the same access to both Hapuna and Mauna Kea Resorts as hotel guests, with private hotel parking access, fitness room access, reduced golf and tennis rates, complimentary pool and beach amenities, and charging privileges throughout the resort.

The villa is 30 minutes from the Kona airport. While there are several 'villas' listed in this section of VRBO and Home Away, potential renters should be aware that many are located on the opposite side of the highway, well away from the beach. This villa is located in the one and only Mauna Kea Villa community, with a 5-10 minute walk to the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel.
