About Karen & Steve Kulin

We love outdoor activities from snow skiing to snorkeling, road biking and mountain biking and have recently taken up golf now that we have a house on a golf course. We've added another fun activity to our list this pat year (2016) when we discovered the joy of paddle boarding. Mauna Kea is a perfect place to enjoy this activity.

Karen & Steve Kulin purchased this villa in 2012

Why Karen & Steve Kulin chose Kohala Coast

After numerous trips to Hawaii over the past 25 years, we fell in love with the Big Island and decided to purchase a vacation home here. The energy level and friendly people made us want to come back to the Big Island time and time again and when we found Waiulaula, we knew we had also found our 'home away from home.'

Incredibly beautiful home and property!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of eight enjoyed a perfect time at this lovely home. it is so well appointed - I cannot think of anything it lacks. The view is gorgeous! The proximity to the beach at Mauna Kea and Hapuna is ideal. This was by far the best Hawaii vacation- we cannot wait to come back!

Outstanding luxury property with all the perks!

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed in numerous high end resorts in Hawaii over the years and was reluctant to rent a property for fear of disappointment. This property far surpassed my expectations. It is beautiful and spacious and immaculately kept.

The kitchen was incredible with everything you'd ever need to entertain including beautiful dishes and serving platters as well as all the spices one would ever need. We were laughing near the end of the holiday because everytime we went to cook something, that one ingredient we thought they'd never have of course was there.

We loved the gym just a minute away which was rarely being used.

We were met the night we arrived and had a rundown of the home, pool and hot tub as well as all the area had to offer. We spent hours lounging in the backyard on the fabulous lounging chairs and ate around the wonderful outdoor dining table. They had a fantastic BBQ so we cooked most nights at home.

The location was perfect, minutes away from a beach which provided awesome boogie boarding. We explored numerous beaches and hikes in the area, all of which were within an half an hour drive.

We are counting the days until we can return to this property. After staying here, we will never go back to a resort again!

Wonderful home, great location.

  • 5 of 5

We were a party of 6 adults (3 couples) and stayed 10 days in Feb at Karen and Stephen's home in Mauna Kea Resort. We had a wonderful time. This home is exceptionally well laid out and you will find everything you need. Everything worked well, we were totally comfortable. Loved the beds, the linens, the lounge chairs and the option to open up the space for inside/ outside living. We appreciated the proximity to the Hapuna and Mauna Kea beaches - the best on the Island. It was just like being at home. We bought the resort amenities package and it was well worth it. Thank you for the beach supplies, boogie boards and snorkel equipment. Some of our party were on the links and fantastic equipment at the Hapuna Resort gym. the Owners were very responsive, and their agent Kerrie was wonderful and responded to our requests super quickly. We look forward to returning.

Owner's Response: We are happy you found the house "just like being at Home" and were able to relax and take in the wonderful serenity it offers. Mauna Kea and Hapuna Beach are a treasure, so being able to walk to them adds such a bonus to the house. We look forward to having you as a guest when future travel takes you back to the Big Island.

Beautiful Home

  • 5 of 5

The villa was exactly as presented on the website. We loved the openness of the kitchen/great room which extended onto the lanai when you opened the glass doors. The bedrooms were very spacious and comfortable. The house was well maintained and all the appliances worked perfectly. We particularly enjoyed how peaceful it was, sitting on the lanai, looking out at the ocean. The neighborhood was very quiet, which was a bonus for us. The Property Manager representing the Owners was awesome. She was on top of every request we had. The amenities offered, such as beach access, pools, golf were close by and easily accessible. We can't say enough wonderful things about this villa. I would highly recommend it to family and friends.

Return to Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from our second stay at this beautiful home. This time we were there for 19 nights and had overlapping visits from our children and grandchildren...better than ever. The owners have continued to improve the offering here and everything was as advertised or better. The Club Membership was very useful, as we used the pool, beach, restaurants and recreatioal activities at the Mauna Kea and Hapuna to the fullest extent. Each family had their own account to use when they picked special activities and meals. We will return here the next time we visit Hawaii. The Big Island has become our favorite destination.

Suggestion, use the fllight over to make some meal plans and head directly to Costco after you leave the airport. It's a great place for staples, prime steaks, wine and liquor. Also, the market at Waikaloa Village is completly stocked with smaller portions of things you don't need alot of. In addition, the mid-week farmers market in Waimea is a terrific place for fresh veggies and fruit. It also makes for a nice trip away from the resorts.

For recreational activities, consider the Kohala Flume ride and snorkeling with the mantas at the Mauna Kea Hotel.

If you are dining out, consider Na'Pua at the Mauna Lani for sunsets, Merrimans for fine dining island style and Sushi Rock in Hawi for local color. We tried each one more than once along with a family dinner on the Garden Terrace at the Manta Restaurant at the hotel.

I hope the review was helpful, this place is so Ono Ono, Aloha
