About Judy Hyde

We are in our mid-60's, have 3 adult children, and 4 grandchildren. Our hobbies are travel, golf, hiking, bridge, swimming, stand-up paddle, and reading.

Judy Hyde purchased this house in 2008

Why Judy Hyde chose Kohala Coast

We bought this property for our extended family and friends to celebrate holidays and special occasions. We wanted to be within the gates of the Mauna Kea resort, enjoy a private retreat with spectacular views, and have a heated pool - a feature that is necessary in the winter months.

What makes this house unique

This is a very relaxing and comfortable home. The individual pods make group living really easy. We love the location - a simple drive or a scenic walk to our favorite beach in the world, and we treasure the privacy and views from every room. We have been fortunate to share our home with many friends, and pleased to know how much they enjoyed their stay.

Special Mauna Kea Home

  • 5 of 5

My family and I stayed in this beautiful home over the Holiday. It was everything I imagined and then some. They house is very well laid out with nicely decorated furnishings, top of the line technology and all the amenities you could desire. My family had a wide range of ages and the house is well designed for all. The pool and views gave our nightly pupu and cocktail hour an amazing "magazine photo" like atmosphere. The property manager checked in on us during our stay and was very attentive to our needs and questions should they arise. We shall return someday and I shall cherish our stay forever. Amazingly Aloha!

Perfect family vacation home

  • 5 of 5

We had the pleasure of staying in Judy's beautiful home in July. There were 11 of us in the party - ages ranging from grandparents to grandkids. We loved exploring the island by day and relaxing and watching the beautiful sunsets at night. The kids really enjoyed the pool while the adults enjoyed a glass of wine after dinner. I had some initial concerns about the "pod" style of the home but it ended up being the best thing about it. We could all retreat at the end of the day to our own "pod". My children are 10 and 7 and I didn't want them in the main house alone at night so we had 2 air mattresses set up in our room as there was plenty of room. There is AC for the bedrooms that we turned off during the day when we were gone but turned back on for sleeping and it worked well. The main home does get very warm - even with the breeze - and we had a fan going in the kitchen while we cooked. Overall, I would highly recommend it. It's in a nice, quiet location, is set up to give even those in a large party some privacy and has every amenity that you can imagine. It's a perfectly thought out home. Thank you Judy! (house manager was super helpful and even had some groceries there so we wouldn't have to go food shopping after a long flight from Florida)

This is a very comfortable home with true Hawaiian ambiance.

  • 5 of 5

The owner was easy to deal with, the local manager was terrific and the property is awesome. The home is well appointed and has a good layout for relaxing and entertaining. All the koa wood inside is beautiful. Lots of books, towels, kitchen equipment, beach toys and electronics. The kids (teenagers) loved it. If you want daily cleaning you have to specify that. Otherwise it is every two to three days. The spa has a leak, so you must partly refill it daily.

Wonderful Mauna Kea Beach Property

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful property located with easy access to Mauna Kea Beach and Hapuna Beach and respective hotel amenities. The lush landscape provides privacy from nearby residences. House is designed for privacy and pool access from each bedroom, and a wonderful open feeling from other areas of the house. The tiki torches provided a lovely ambiance in the evening. It is equipped very well with most everything you could need. Nicole (the local manager) and the owner are wonderful and easy to work with.

Best Ever

  • 5 of 5

We have rented often from VRBO at places around the world and this house exceeded all of our expectations. The written descriptions and photographs on the website are quite accurate and very flattering but really don’t do it justice. It is equipped better than any rental we have ever enjoyed down to an iPod attached to the sound system with a wonderful selection of music; X-Box games that delighted our grandkids and a property manager who responded instantly to a couple of minor but most helpful needs. We plan to return on another day.
