Fantastic property!

  • 5 of 5

Cindi has thought of just about everything. This place is more reasonably priced than the nearby Villages at Mauna Lani and it has the same number of bedrooms plus it’s closer to the private beach. In fact you can walk the paths by the lava tunnels and fish ponds. Walking distance to the local grocer, too. Fantastic place!

Impeccably maintained, conveniently located, and affordable!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 6 loved our stay at the Palm Villas. The complex is well-maintained and the unit is quiet, beautifully decorated, and immaculately clean. There was plenty of room and the private garage (with beach chairs, snorkel equipment, a double stroller, and boogie boards) was a plus. The kids loved being able to dash out of the condo and go to the complex's pool and hot tub. There are great walking paths right outside the condo and it's a pleasant, rolling 10 minute walk through the lava fields to the Mauna Lani fish ponds. This complex is also within a 5 minute drive of all the other amenities of the Kohala resort area, including all the restaurants and shopping. Highly recommended.

Easy Living...

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time and were very happy with the condo and the resort. We have stayed at the Mauna Lani before so it felt like home being on the property again. The condo was perfect with comfortable beds, plenty of towels and a nice big refrigerator that made lots of ice! Plenty of extras included and we left two new boogie boards so now there's more! We cooked most of our meals and the kitchen was great.

My only complaints are that we had two cars and it was hard to find parking within the Palm Villa complex and we missed having our own BBQ on the porch. Might also be nice to have a short, retractable clothes line on the patio for those wet suits and beach towels!

If you stay here, or at one of the other properties, be sure to check out the beaches and snorkeling areas over by the hotel also. Mighty nice! Go to Hapuna Beach Park for boogie boarding and down to Ho'okena Beach Park, down the island a bit, for tide pooling, a picnic and a change of scene. Enjoy!

Great condo, great location, great value!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five stayed at this condo for 10 days. As indicated in previous reviews, this unit continues to be immaculate, well appointed, ideally located on the resort premises. Leasing/management/maintenance staff all very accommodating, accessible and professional integrity (promptly notified and returned personal items upon our departure). Several other family members leased larger homes in Fairways -- this location far surpasses those properties in particular because of value and walking access to resort lava fields, fish ponds, and beach. We will definitely seek this unit upon any future return to this amazing Big Island.

This unit was immaculately clean and and well stocked. The entire rental and stay process was a breeze. Close to all ammenities by car or on foot. The pool area was clean and tidy as well. If we return to the Big Island we'll definitely request this unit again. One of the cleanest rentals I've stayed in.
