About Brecken Pitts

As you probably have figured out Hawaii is a paradise, a perfect mix of sun, serenity and fun. It is also a great getaway from the rainy Seattle winters, where we live full time, and that is why we choose to buy here.

We love the Big Island for its diversity. The stark contrast between the dry, brittle lava and the lush green of the plants brings two worlds together. We also wanted a place that had a good location…walking distance to restaurants, a beach nearby, and trails to run on. Another criteria of ours was that our location be far close to the pool (for the kids sake). Swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring, running, and eating our just some of our favorite activities here.

We have two young kids, and we wanted to start creating memories of fun family vacations with grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends. To us Mauna Lani is paradise.

Brecken Pitts purchased this townhome in 2013

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an excellent vacation! Loved Hawaii and did most of the suggested things on the list of “our favorite things” from Anne. We also snorkeled with dolphins and manta rays with a company called Splashers – they were great! We rode ATV’s with a company called Ride the Rim – loved that too! Monstera was great. Jackie Rays was great. Bamboo in Hawi was great. We liked visiting shops in Mauna Lani, Hawi, and Waimea. Great burger place in Waimea called Village Burger – mushroom burger is great! Hapuni great for waves and body surfing! Definitely get there early. Lifeguards do a great job there. This has been our favorite vacation! Ooh – and try to see the hula dancers at the Mauna Lani Shops. Thursday night show was great and free! Enjoy and relax. This condo is awesome! Love the beds and décor. Great!!! Great!!! Wow – sunset!! Petroglyphs are cool. Thank you! ?

Island oasis

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home and the owner was so helpful with planning activities. We had never been to the Big Island of Hawaii so did not know what restaurants to dine at, beaches to visit or what activities are a must. The owner gave us a list of her top recommendations which was really helpful. We went swimming with manta rays, ate dinner on the beach with live music, watched a free hula and fire show (twice, it was that good), hiked around the volcano, ate local fruit, held seahorses, and of course relaxed on the beach. The trip was so fun and relaxing at the same time. My daughter had a blast. Another big plus is how close this home is to all the shops down the road, did that walk several times and was so enjoyable. This is my new favorite vacation spot.

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

'Your Big Island Home' was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental home. It is perfect for a family or friends traveling together. There was plenty of space. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook at home including spices and oils (which saves a lot of money). The built in BBQ was top of the line and anything we grilled on it turned out delicious. One of the best features of this home is that it is right next to the pool so if you forgot something in the house or needed a refill on your drink, you didn't have too far to go. There were lots of pool toys and beach toys provided. The private beach is stunning! We visited a lot of the public beaches around the island, but the private beach had everything you could want. There was a restaurant, rental shop, beach chairs, shade, coral reefs, and amazing Hawaiian scenery. This was our most relaxing and fun trip ever because we had everything we needed at the house. We have already booked our next stay.

Great place, small garage

  • 4 of 5

Overall, great place. Just be aware the garage is small and narrow. You cannot fit a mid or full size SUV into the garage. Only small SUVs or medium sized cars will fit. Bigger cars will need to park on the street in the designated areas.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review. I am so pleased that you enjoyed your stay. Sorry about the garage. Unfortunately the size of it isn't something we can change, but there are plenty of parking spaces to use outside of the garage. I hope to host you again in the future!

Hawaii Vacation

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful time on The Big Island. The condo was fantastic and accommodated our family of 7 (5 adults, a 5 yr old and a 7 month old) very comfortably. The bedrooms were spacious with plenty of storage. The proximity to the pool was great and the private beach access was awesome. The beach was so beautiful and it was so nice to be able to rent the paddle boards and kayaks. The restaurant located at the beach was also very convenient and served great food. The condo itself was beautifully decorated and comfortable. The kitchen was fully stocked. The BBQ grill was great. We enjoyed many mornings sitting on the lanai drinking our coffee. There are beach chairs, toys, umbrella, and coolers provided which made going to the beach so easy. Also, plenty of supplies for the baby (pack n play, high chair, and bouncer). The location of the condo was great also. It was just a short drive to many great beaches and activities. We loved it!

We had an amazing time and condo was just beautiful. The decor and location was fantastic and it had everything we needed. We loved the pool and enjoyed BBQ everyday on the patio.
