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 Kamuela

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.

Paradise Found

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family (7 adults and 2 infants) stayed in this fantastic house for a week to attend a wedding at the Mauna Kea. It could not have been better. Comfortable, beautiful view, open to the trade winds, and plenty of space for us all to gather, yet separated rooms for privacy. (That was particularly helpful with two infants tending to wake in the middle of the night without waking everyone else up.) Judy Hyde (the owner) was a delight to deal with and so very, very helpful. And Nicole (the property manager) was equally nice and helpful. (We actually had a slight plumbing back up issue that was no big deal, but Nicole had someone out to fix it immediately!) We made use of the Resident Club Membership available through the rental so we could park at the Mauna Kea and take advantage of the restaurants and amenities at the resort. That was a great plus. Our only concern coming in was whether the house was close enough to the main road that there would be traffic noise. We never heard a thing. The house is far enough removed that traffic noise was never an issue. All in all, we can't say enough about the house and/or Judy. We highly recommend this rental.

What a Great Place for a Family

  • 5 of 5

So much has already been said I can only confirm how wonderful were the accommodations as well as support for this lovely traditional home. We had three of our children and their families over a 16 day period with ease, fun and enjoyment celebration my wives 80th birthday. I would definitely recommend this home for a stay at this fully equipped and comfortable family friendly home on the beautiful Mauna Kea resort grounds.

Celebrating my birthday in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This fantastic home is very well maintained inside and out. My husband and I enjoyed our private insuite bedroom, as well as another son in his. Another son with his two children enjoyed the back bedrooms. Gorgeous views. Great use of Moana Kea parking pass and private beach. Wonderful restaurants at Moana Kea and other places up and down the coast. The helicopter ride of the entire island was fantastic from a nearby business. Housekeeper was super. Will rent it again for sure.

We loved our stay! The location was perfect and the house had a great family feel to it. An unexpected pleasure was stargazing every night on the lawn! Can't wait to return!

Our home is a great starting point to tour the entire island, and is close to Waimea, a charming Hawaiian town off the tourist track, where there are farmer's markets, live theater, shopping, and excellent restaurants. Less than 4 miles away is the little town of Kaiwaihae, with outdoor produce market, a local fresh (straight from the ocean) fish market, a macadamia nut factory, and several good restaurants.
