About Karen & Steve Kulin

We live in Alaska and 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 when we discovered the joy of paddle boarding. Mauna Kea is a perfect place to enjoy this activity while watching for spinner dolphins, turtles, whales and manta ray.

Karen & Steve Kulin purchased this villa in 2012

Why Karen & Steve Kulin chose Kamuela

After numerous trips to Hawaii over the past 25 years, we fell in love with the Big Island and in 2012 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.'

What makes this villa unique

The floor plan of our gorgeous spacious villa is perfectly placed with access to the best beaches on the island. Walk to Mauna Kea or Hapuna Beach. Enjoy access (with a fee) to the Mauna Kea Hotel or the Hapuna Prince (soon to be a Westin) with the amenities package available to our clients through our resort membership. You will be treated as if you are a guest at the hotel. You have easy access to both the spectacular Mauna Kea Golf Course and the Hapuna Golf Course. With our perfect location, enjoy what is one of the top ocean views in Waiulaula, as well as one of the largest back yards. A short walk and guests can enjoy the Waiulaula Amenities Center where they can enjoy the view while they swim in the beautiful infinity pool, relax in the hot tub, play a game of cards in the coolness of the library or workout in the fitness center. The choice is yours.

Wonderful week on the Big Island!!!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 had a fantastic week at the villa with our family! The location is perfect and we spent everyday down at the Mauna Kea beach at the beautiful cove and then late afternoons around the villa pool. The house is incredibly well stocked and made it super easy to cook meals. There is lots of room to spread out and relax and the decor is very pleasant and updated. The sunsets were especially gorgeous and we think this villa has one of the best outlooks in the neighborhood. We hope to be back next year!

p.s. Don't bother hauling boogie boards, rafts, swim toys, etc... from home, they have it all there!

Owner's Response: We also think that our view is one of the best in Waiulaula and are happy you were able to enjoy the beautiful sunsets it offers while sharing family time. Hope to see you back next year!

Absolutely gorgeous

  • 5 of 5

Our multi-generational family had a great experience. Convenient for the younger ones to explore the island and great for the grandparents to relax comfortably. Easy access to beaches and lots of fun. Friendly, on island greeter was very nice. No problems while we stayed. It was extraordinarily clean. Even came with a friendly neighborhood cat.

Owner's Response: We're so glad you enjoyed your stay and really welcome the feedback. We think both our housekeeper and on island contact/manager are amazing! Waiulaula works at keeping the cats away, but periodically we get one.

Perfect vacation

  • 5 of 5

The owners and management were highly responsive. The house was exactly as depicted and the amenities were outstanding. Make sure to get the beach access pass. It is well worth the expense. We would definitely stay here again.

Dream home filled with island aloha

  • 5 of 5

This was our first stay on the big island and it did not disappoint. We were warmly welcomed to this peaceful sanctuary and the owners made sure that we were well cared for. Waking up to the beautiful ocean views from this home was a joy every morning and the sunsets were just gorgeous. The home is beautifully furnished and well cared for; we truly felt like honored guests with access to the kitchen fully equipped with quality cooking materials, sports equipment (snorkel gear, beach chairs, boogie boards) in the garage, great selection of guidebooks, and the bathrooms supplied with shower supplies etc. One master even has both an indoor and outdoor shower--what an island treat! We ate all of our dinners outside--the huge outdoor table easily accommodated our group of 8 and a couple of friends that were also visiting the island. The entire set of glass doors to the lanai can be pulled back leaving just a screened wall and we were able to enjoy this indoor/outdoor combination living all week. The home has a wonderful layout with a large open plan kitchen/great room area while each of the three bedrooms feel very private and spacious. It is a very comfortable setup for a large group and would be perfect for a couple of families to share or for grandparents to be able to join a family trip.

The location is wonderful--we enjoyed the peace and privacy of having our own home in this quiet gated community while being just a short walk to the hotel beaches of the fabulous Mauna Kea and Hapuna resort hotels. The amenities package that allows access to these is a must! These beaches here are truly special--the snorkeling is wonderful and we were delighted to be able to swim with giant rays both during the day and in the evening. There are many easy day trips from this location and we enjoyed several, but if you just want to relax, you'll feel comfortable just staying at this home. We highly recommend this property and hope to return soon!

Owner's Response: We are absolutely delighted you chose the Big Island as your Hawaii destination and hope you and your family are able to return to our home when future trips bring you back to Hawaii. As you mentioned, there are numerous day trips that are easily accessible from our home, although Mauna Kea and Hapuna beaches are in a league of their own. Mahalo!

We had our children and grandchildren join us in this beautiful home. We all had a wonderful time. Beautiful sunsets and fun dip pool. The two resorts (Hapuna and Mauna Kea) have the best beaches. It was a wonderful Spring Break. Sharie the manager, met us and showed us around, was very pleasant. Karen was quick to respond to our requests and made this a smooth rental. We hope to come back here again next year.

Car: recommended

We are located in the gated community of Waiulaula that is one of the beautiful and highly desired Mauna Kea Properties. We are on the Hapuna Golf Course with access to both the Mauna Kea and the Hapuna Golf Course. Guests are able to walk to both beaches or take an easy five minute drive. These white sand beaches are magnificent and a must see when you are on the island. It is not uncommon to see dolphins, whales, turtles, manta ray, fish and an abundance of birds when at the beach. Paddling boarding and snorkeling are always fun and the resort also has kayaks for rent.
