About Vera Bruington

Aloha! We are a family from Northern California. My husband and I went to the Big Island on our 1st anniversary and have been going back ever since! We have 2 grown children, 1 married and 1 in college. Our children have grown up visiting Hawaii several times every year . Its in our blood!!

Vera Bruington purchased this house in 2014

Why Vera Bruington chose Puako

We chose Kamilo after owning and selling in other parts of Hawaii because it has everything we all wanted! My husband is an avid golfer and loves loves loves the Mauna Lani courses and I love love love the beach so with the owners beach so handy it was a win win! Kamilo also has the best amenity center and convenience to everything else you need. We actually never leave the Mauna Lani complex on some visits. We love to take morning walks along the beach and stop for coffee at the Mauna Lani coffee shop 'turtle café'.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Everything provided!

  • 4 of 5

You don’t need to bring anything except your swimsuit to this house. Besides all the expected items, they have provided way more. The kitchen is fully stocked with everything you need and multiples of them as well. High chair and pack n play for the little ones. Baths come with extra towels and large size products. More than enough beach towels as well as beach chairs, snorkel gear, floaties, coolers, sand toys and umbrella for a day of fun. There is enough seating inside and out for everyone. There are 3 refrigerators and 2 freezers so you have lots of storage room and plenty of ice. We had a few hiccups when we arrived but Vera proved to be easy to work with and quick to respond. The only thing about this place is it is ready for a bit of a refresh: towels are getting old and worn and seeing wear inside and out but you will be very comfortable staying here and won’t have to worry if the bathrooms are spotless because they are!!

House was beautiful, but needs some TLC.

  • 3 of 5

Our stay was really nice in this house. Beautiful house and wonderful complex, but disappointed in owners response. We were a group of five people. The dishwashers were not working and the property manager tried their best to fix the issue during our stay. Unfortunately they were not fixable so we had to do dishes by hand our whole stay. Although we were given paper plates and plastic cutlery to use, compensation should have been offered. We did not plan on an 8 day vacation with five people having to wash and dry all of our dishes and we ate in 7 of the 8 days. We had other issues while we were there, but won't bother to mention them. It was a unanimous thought by all five of us that the owner should have given us a discount for the fact that the dishwashers were not working. Just because we booked the house at a lower rate than they usually offer it, doesn't mean that we should not get a rebate for this inconvenience.

Owner's Response: It is always unfortunate when a problem arises that cannot be fixed while a guest is staying in the home. As the above guest stated when they reported the issue my prop mgr was sent out immediately and had a service repair man out that day. He then had to come out again and determined the dishwasher needed replacing . We immediately ordered a new one but unfortunately we could not get it installation scheduled till after the guests had left. We did immediately send over paper plates and utensils so no ya d washing would be needed and at the time they seemed thankful. They never mentioned Any other issues. And what they didn’t mention is they were compensated financially !! It is very hard to get quick responses on an island and we were lucky to get a new dishwasher replaced within a week. I am sorry things didn’t work out to their satisfaction

Luxurious Escape with a Private Pool, Ocean View, all the Bells & Whistles

  • 5 of 5

This home is a perfect place to escape. On the golf course with ocean views and a spectacular sunset off the lanai every night, it is a wonderful location. It is very large with plenty of separate spaces for a family or group to spread out and relax. Two desk areas allow you to keep up with work if you want, lots of TV and entertainment options as well. Very comfortable furniture, beds, etc. It is also incredibly well equipped with all of the beach and pool toys you would want. Having a private pool is wonderful, and for a larger pool experience, it's a very short walk to the 2 pools in the complex.

The kitchen is incredibly well outfitted with everything you'd need to cook meals all day long. There are multiple refrigerators and plenty of storage space to stock up for a crowd or a longer stay. We have stayed in many homes in the area and this one had the most extras we've seen.

This is a lovely, quiet complex close to the beaches, shops and restaurants and fantastic place to make a home base. Vera, the owner is very easy to work with and has truly thought of everything to make your stay perfection. Mahalo Nui Loa!

Great Find

  • 5 of 5

We very much enjoyed our stay at this unit in Mauna Lani. The property is as described and shown on the photographs – and more! There were three couples and a toddler in our party and we found the home to be very welcoming and comfortable. Vera, the host, was very responsive and did what she can to help make our vacation stress-free.

The kitchen was well-stocked and the outdoor grill was great. Among the best meals we had were those we enjoyed at home with local beef and fresh produce from the farmers market.

It was fun to have a pool at home, along with the bigger pool in the amenity center. We enjoyed the private access to beach. Snorkel Bob’s was conveniently nearby and it was a breeze to get everything we needed for a day of snorkeling.

We’re glad we found this property and I would definitely recommend it. Our only regret was that we couldn't stay longer.
