Paradise on the second floor Ocean/Golf View

  • 5 of 5

This Villa is amazing for a family of 4-6 people. So spacious, super clean, modern appliances, keurig maker and smart TVs. This villa is very well cared for and maintained and updated with modern appliances which we appreciated. Any things that came up during our stay were handled immediately by the property manager. The view is spectacular, every morning I sat on the expansive deck on the couch and sipped my coffee listening to the ocean and birds.

We were a family of 4 with 2 children so we each had our own bedroom and bathroom and the layout of the villa was very spacious with the bedrooms all separated from one another. I loved the floor to ceiling sliding glass doors to the outside deck. My children loved the place so much they asked us to buy it : ). We also used the Laundry a few times which was new and efficient. The best part of this villa is that it is fully stocked so you don't need to worry about Laundry or Dish Detergent. They even stock the bathrooms and showers with Shampoo and soap.

The Four Seasons is walking distance to this villa which is great but we used the golf carts mostly which were more fun to take to the Trading Post to use the FS property. The sunsets were spectacular, you can take the golf cart down to the ocean/golf path and watch right over the beach. We paid the daily rate to use the FS resort pool and beach which is worth it.

We also loved the fact that I was able to give a grocery list including alcohol and wine before I arrived, so when we got there the fridge was already stocked for us. Also, their is daily maid service included with the rate which many other villas I looked at didn't include daily made service.

I highly recommend this villa over others on the property based on location, cleanliness, amenities, view and property management. We hope to come back again in the future.

Perfect In Every Way,

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed in the Penthouse Villa and had an absolutely amazing trip. This was our first time not staying in the hotel, and it was better than we could have expected. The unit was perfect for our family, three adults and a one year old. Having had so many wonderful stays at the hotel, we were very reluctant to make the shift to a home.

Below are some of the key pieces of information that we find helpful when searching properties and trying to make decisions, especially at a place like Hualalai where there are a lot of great units. Also, the team at Kema Kama took excellent care of us from start to finish.

Booking: was super easy and the team immediately answered all of our questions. Traveling with a one year old from the east coast can be stressful, they made this very easy.

Pre-trip organization: the team at Kema Kama helped us with everything from ordering a crib, baby items (diapers etc), groceries, wine and beer. Everything was seamless.

Arrival: communication throughout was fantastic. We were greated by the onsite team with fresh lei's and coconut water. They gave us a tour of the home and all the systems. The only drawback is the slightly dated and complicated lighting system.

The unit: absolutely stunning. Had everything we could have hoped for. A ton of space. The lanai is amazing! We ended up eating many dinners and having drinks on the lanai. We were initially a little concerned with a one year old who likes to run around and explore, but the railing was completely safe. The cleaning people came every day and were great.

Location: if you plan to spend time at the hotel, this unit is very well placed and a VERY short golf cart ride to the residents beach house. We thought this would be difficult with a baby, but it ended up being extremely easy and fun for her (and us).

Other: while we thought we would eat a ton of meals and hang at the house, we actually found we let the pros handle much of the cooking; we were on vacation after all! We love to cook, but on multiple nights we ordered food from beach tree or the residents beach house and brought it back to the lanai.

We absolutely would stay here again and for anyone contemplating a rental vs hotel, just do it! You won't be disappointed.

Paradise in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

The villa was fabulous, even more beautiful than the pictures. Everything was spotless; the kitchen was well-stocked; and the furnishings, appliances, wifi, etc. were all well-maintained. The villa is perfectly situated, a three minute walk to the beach and resort pools and restaurants. The property managers and housekeeping service were outstanding. We ate at home often and enjoyed sunsets and meals on our wraparound deck. I can't imagine a more beautiful villa anywhere at Hualalai (and we've stayed all over). We can't wait to return!

Beautifully decorated and well appointed penthouse. The rooms are spacious and there's a nice view out to the ocean. Monica was very friendly and helpful. One minor suggestion would be to please include an orientation of the operation of the lights, TV, and other electronics. (We stumbled around in the dark on the first night trying to figure out the high-tech light switches).

Thanks for a wonderful stay.
