About Jo Ann Dornbush

My husband and I moved to Hawaii 41 years ago as newlyweds. Our children were born and raised in the islands. We are a golfing family and enjoyed our 'ready-made' foursome. We now are blessed with the addition of a son-in-law and daughter-in-law to our family and look forward to spending time with them at our new home at Mauna Lani.

Jo Ann Dornbush purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Jo Ann Dornbush chose Kohala Coast

We recently purchased this beautiful townhome at Golf Villas (previously VRBO listing #244573) in the Mauna Lani Resort. We owned a couple of units at Mauna Lani when our children we young and we had wonderful memories of family vacations there. We decided to 'go home' to Mauna Lani again. We are thrilled as this unit is meticulously maintained and beautifully furnished.

Over too quickly!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect for our family of five (3 tween daughters). It is an end unit with a wonderful view of the golf course and Kohala mountains. We especially enjoyed the outdoor eating area and the upper level porch. The furniture is very comfortable and the kitchen is fully functional with everything you need. The condo offered beach towels, two great umbrellas, beach chairs, boogie boards, a cooler -- really everything you need to visit the many beaches on the island. The condo's pool and hot tub were a big hit with the family and our girls often had the pool to themselves. Finally, the owner, Jo Ann, and the property manager, Dani, were very responsive and kind. We had no issues or complaints.

Throughout our vacation, our family switched between relaxing at the resort and exploring the island. The Big Island has so much to offer. We hiked the stunning Waipio and Polulu valleys. We visited Volcano National Park. We went to the Hilo and Kona Farmers' Markets. We checked out the Kaumana Caves and Rainbow Falls near Hilo. We attended a luau at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort. We loved the warm, man-made pool located right next to the ocean at Ahalanui Beach Park. So very much to do!

One of our very favorite things to do is to SNORKEL and the Big Island offers many locations! Surprisingly, one of the best places to snorkel was the Mauna Lani Owner's Beach! We saw a multitude of colorful fish, eels, and coral. Also, they offer chairs, cabanas and easily accessible parking. This beach also has a lifeguard, which I appreciated as a parent. We went there many times because it was so close to the condo.

Other locations we went snorkeling and swimming included the tide pools south of Hilo (the girls' favorite), Hapuna Beach, the Kaunaoa Beach (next to Mauna Kea Beach Resort), Manini'owali Beach, and Beach 69. All of these offer great snorkeling -- lots of fish, turtles, and coral! My favorite snorkeling spot was Two Steps (Honaunau), just south of Kona. Absolutely stunning! Captain Cook Monument is also wonderful, but accessible mostly by boat. We visited there last time we were on the Big Island.

Visiting the Big Island is a family favorite. The activities, the beauty, the serenity -- it really is quite the escape. And being able to stay at this condo made this trip perfect. We absolutely will be back!

Excellent and Responsive!

  • 5 of 5

We recently returned from our stay on the Big Island. This unit was very well equipped and clean. The owner is extremely responsive to your inquiries and needs. When I inquired about beach umbrellas (we are Pacific Northwesterners with limited sun exposure) she ordered two! We were also travelling with two kiddos (age 7, 11) and mother in law. The unit was large enough for us all to have a bit of space. We will be back!

Fantastic Townhouse and Owner!

  • 5 of 5

We have just booked our 8th year at Mauna Lani and Jo Ann’s unit at the Golf Villas. This is a fantastic 3 bedroom condo right on the 10th hole that is well furnished and maintained. Jo Ann is great to deal with and if there are any issues at all she is immediately on top of it making it right. This unit is always in great shape, well cared for and supplied.

Mauna Lani is a fantastic location with a private residents beach and a wonderful beach side restaurant. In addition is the Mauna Lani Bay hotel and the fantastic Canoe House ocean side restaurant for sunset dinners. 2 world class golf courses are at your doorstep as well with reduced rates for guests of the resort.

A great way to start your day is a hike along the Fisherman’s trail to the Black Sand beach. Stroll by beautiful ocean front homes on this amazing walk on the cliffs above the water. Wear sturdy shoes as it is all on a lava path.

Within the resort grounds is a handy shopping complex with many restaurants, shops and a Foodland with a new expanded wine shop. You really don’t need to travel any farther to shop.

With that said the Waikoloa Beach Resort with it’s many shops, restaurants, hotels and 2 more great golf courses, is within easy walking distance of the Golf Villas. Don’t miss the beach side Lava Lava Club for happy hour and an amazing sunset while your feet wriggle in the sand.

The Big Island has so much to offer and making the Golf Villas your home couldn’t be better.

Beautiful and relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at Golf Villas. The condo was very comfortable - the furniture was nicer than what you typically see in a rental, the linens were good quality and in good shape, and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was nicely equipped and everything worked. The wifi was reliable and fast. There were a couple of issues that came up while we were there and they were attended to by the property manager. Both Dani and Jo Ann were a pleasure to work with.

Our favorite thing was to start the morning with breakfast on the downstairs lanai, looking out at the golf course and watching all of the birds, followed by going down to the private beach. We highly recommend this condo.

Wonderful Slice of Paradise

  • 5 of 5

We return to this townhome year after year. It is spacious, comfortable, well-decorated, well-appointed, and continuously updated. The kitchen has everything to make gourmet meals, and having a full-size washer and dryer is fantastic. Another plus, is the fact that there are three full-sized bathrooms. The owner and the property manager are both very responsive. We have never encountered a problem with the home because the owner clearly stays on top of things.

We love to get outdoors, and one of our favorite things to do is to hike the Ala Kahakai Trail between Hapuna and Mauna Kea, which includes archaeological sites and a breathtaking coastline where you can often see honu and humpbacks. The hike only takes 15 to 20 minutes. We then spend the day bodysurfing and snorkeling at Mauna Kea Beach. The Ala Kahakai Trail is 175 miles long, and is definitely worth exploring.

Private retreat, beautiful property, the best owner to work with

  • 5 of 5

Booked our dream vacation for 3 weeks w/my 3 teens and husband after speaking with Jo Ann. At first the beauty of the property, the reasonable pricing, and great location attracted us. But after posting a question and getting a call from Jo Ann that same night, I knew this was the right place for us. Equipped with enough space to spread out, we all felt right at home. The condo was spotless when we arrived, well stocked with things like beach towels, bath towels, and toiletries. We all found our rooms and beds very comfortable. Being able to walk out onto our private lanai off our bedroom every morning was priceless. The gated golf community was quiet and clean, and filled with flowering trees and shrubs, gorgeous palm trees and a stunning golf course. A beautiful community pool is practically across the street (which we often had to ourselves), and the gorgeous private beach and lovely beach front restaurant were a minute's drive away, as was the shopping center were we could run up for groceries and coffee each day. On the last week there we did experience a leak in the upstairs shower that went into the kitchen. The property manager (who we found to be never very enthusiastic or responsive during our stay) said she couldn't get a plumber in until after we left which seemed unreasonable over an 8 day period. Immediately, Jo Ann (the property owner) jumped in and got a plumber in right away to evaluate the situation, gave us a generous refund on part of our stay, and was sincerely apologetic making the momentary inconvenience of not using that shower for the last week painless. Everyone loved our stay which says a lot with 3 teens! We'd gladly come here again and recommend it highly!
