Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 BR 3 BA, wheelchair-accessible, Ocean Views minutes to 2 resort beaches

Your Big Island dream awaits at our 3-bedroom, 3-bath vacation rental within the gates of the exclusive Wai'ula'ula compound at the Mauna Kea Resort.

Our 3-bedroom, 3-bath home is designed for all ages, and is wheelchair-accessible, featuring brand new Stannah stair lifts to whisk you safely up the stairs to your vacation home!

Before you do anything else on your Big Island vacation, step out onto our condo’s open-air lanai terrace, where views of the rolling fairways and the Pacific Ocean stretch out ahead of you, touching Maui’s shores in the distance. Welcome to Hawaii!

About Wai’ula’ula & Mauna Kea

Our 2,100 square foot second-floor Mauna Kea vacation rental is located near the end of a private lane at Wai’ula’ula. So at night, instead of traffic noise and headlights, you’ll hear the surf and see the hours-long sunsets, giving way to a sky full of stars.

Prefer to work out on state-of-the-art fitness equipment and then plunge into an infinity pool or hot tub? Come on over. It’s only a 5-minute walk to the amenity center from our Mauna Kea vacation rental. Use the grill and tables there for a family luau!

About Our Big Island Condo Rental

Wai'ula'ula homes at Mauna Kea Resort were crafted from the finest building materials and feature top-of-the-line appliances. For our part, we’ve spared no expense in lovingly furnishing our home with tasteful, comfortable furniture and collector’s art on the walls.

Enjoy two spacious master suites with extra comfortable king-size beds, made up with tempurpedic-style mattresses, silky-soft, 600-thread count Egyptian cotton sheets. The 3rd bedroom is furnished with two comfy double beds. Each bedroom has its own wide-screen TV with almost as many cable channels as grains of sand on the Mauna Kea Beach!

Our Great Room is truly “great”! Recessed lighting, coffered ceilings, and a roomy dining area – featuring a hand-made glass top, koa wood dining table -- are just the beginning. Follow a day of sightseeing or beach-going with a quiet evening at home. Choose from the many books in our library ad popular games from our collection. For your soundtrack, plug your Apple device into the Surround Sound speakers. Or just plop down on the comfy sectional and watch the massive 50” flat screen TV with Blu-Ray player and about a bazillion cable channels!

The well-appointed Kitchen at our Big Island condo – with its cherry wood cabinets and granite countertop island – is a great place for creating casual meals or more formal dinners. (As formal as the Big Island gets, anyway!)

If this spectacular Mauna Kea vacation rental feels like a home-away-from home, that’s because it’s our family’s home-away-from home, too! We’ve made countless memories here. And as they say on the Big Island, “Memories, like our sunsets, last forever.”

STAY CONNECTED. We’re working vacationers, too! That’s why we provide you with FREE wireless or wired high-speed Internet. There’s even a spacious desk and comfortable chair in one of the master bedrooms – if you can take your eyes off the ocean right out the window!

FREE RESORT PRIVILEGES: Everyone (up to 8 people) in your group gets free, unlimited access to the luxury Mauna Kea and Hapuna Resorts on the shores of the Big Island. Swim, surf or sunbathe on the safest, most beautiful private resort beaches in Hawaii. After you park in the secured lot right next to the beach, you'll be given plush hotel beach towels, beach umbrellas, chaises lounges and tables to use FREE. Or use the vast hotel pools and well-appointed gyms as my honored guest. You'll also have access to meticulously maintained tennis courts and two championship golf courses at a discount. Leave your wallet behind. We’ll provide a charge card and you can settle up with the hotel when you leave!

About Richard Lasser, Owner

Most of the past 21 years we've frozen our toes off in Seattle. So you can imagine how excited we were to finally make our dream come true and purchase this lovely second home for us, our kids and grandkids. But we're working folk, so we can't get down to the Big Island as much as we'd like. So, we hope you enjoy it when we can't be there. This is not just a rental for us. It truly is our second home, and that's how we've designed and furnished it, right down to the artwork on the walls and the 600-thread count, Egyptian cotton sheets. So we know you'll be comfortable, happy and pleased with all the design choices we've made. Enjoy your time in our home away from home. Wish we were there!

Richard Lasser, Owner purchased this condo in 2013

Why Richard Lasser, Owner chose Big Island

We're in the most exclusive gated compound on the Mauna Kea property. Instead of hordes of tourists and cars crowding wide streets, you relax amid the lush vegetation, serenaded by colorful songbirds. From our end of the compound, traffic dies to practically zero, since we are the next to last property. Your unobstructed view of the Pacific at sunset is matchless.

What makes this condo unique

Enjoy the safest and quietest part of the Waiulaula compound. Live in a home furnished with designer furniture and original, vintage art. Enjoy unique ocean and mountain views (plus Haleakala on Maui on a clear day!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our recent stay at Wai'ula'ula #L-201. Richard, the owner, was very responsive and helpful from the moment I booked the unit. The unit was clean, orderly, the views are beautiful and the kitchen is stocked with everything one would need. We enjoyed the Amenity Center, the BBQ on the lanai and the space is comfortable for everyone. Check-in and check-out is simple and fast. We would highly recommend this unit and will definitely stay again. Aloha!

Exceeded all our expectations!

  • 5 of 5

We absolutely loved our vacation here! The condo was immaculate, beautiful, and very comfortable. We've been coming to the Big Island for 15 years, and this is by far our favorite place. We enjoyed the location, as we explored other parts of the island, and of course loved the resort access to both Mauna Kea and Hapuna. The owner could not have been nicer! He was very responsive and quick to help. While here we couldn't get our cofffee maker to work, so he had an immediate replacement brought to us the same morning! We wish we could stay even longer! Already want to book for next year!

Best condo I've stayed at in Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

The property is a perfect place for staying on the Big Island. The Condo is immaculate with great décor and furniture.

The Owner is very professional with great and fast communications when we need to connect!

We loved our stay, the area and Condo.

I would definitely recommend this place and already planning to come back and stay in this beautiful place sometime next year.

Fabulous Hawaiian Adventure!!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect! We loved having so much more room than a hotel, but still getting privileges at both the Mauna Kea and Hapuna. We enjoyed the daily arrival of the goats on the golf course out the condo’s back windows and porch. Yes, we said goats! We were not expecting those! Our little neighborhood had its own workout center and infinity pool that you could just walk to. The ability to walk to the pool was very convenient because the rest of my family went on several excursions that I (Jennifer), because of chronic back problems, could not participate in. My family would take our rental car and instead of being trapped in the condo, I would just walk up to the neighborhood pool. The neighborhood pool was never crowded and on numerous occasions we found ourselves being the only people there. That was wonderful! Our teenage children took advantage of the workout center several times.

Richard was a wonderful owner! I have never run across anyone that returns emails faster than he does!

As far as food, we went to the grocery store and made breakfast and lunch at the condo. We would then usually dine out for dinner. We did stay for lunch at the Mauna Kea and Hapuna on more than one occasion as we were having a beach day and just chose to eat at their little beachside restaurants. The food was delicious at both places. Try the mango smoothies! So refreshing! Our favorite restaurant was Tommy Bohamas. We also found a pizza place with amazing pizza that we brought back to the condo one night – James Angelo’s Underground Pizza. The food was also good at the Big Island Brewhaus and Café Pesto. Can you tell we like food?

Writing this review just makes me want to go back. It was a trip of a lifetime!

Quiet location -beautiful gardens and views

This is our third family trip to the big Island, and we have stayed here each time. This place feels like home and the whole family loved spending time at the Mauna Kea resort and at the community pool. Fabulous place for a family vacation.

Best Spring Break Ever!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four, which includes 2 older teenage boys, truly enjoyed our stay. The location was great, and we took advantage of the wonderful lanai and BBQ every night. (Get fresh Ono from the Fish Shack -yummy!) The pool and hot tub are very pretty and we preferred it to the pools at the Hapuna Prince and the Mauna Kea. The best part of course was the easy access to the best beaches on the island. For once we did not have to worry about parking and dragging our beach chairs and towels with us.

The townhouse was top notch and very quiet and serene. The kitchen is well appointed.

We hope to return in the future.
