About Heidi Yee

Vince and I are from Davis, California. We are avid travelers that have been all over the world especially Asia, Europe and Mexico with our 2 children. Through our adventures in traveling, we have always found that the lifestyle and culture in Hawaii is very appealing for us and wanted a home on the Big Island. We wanted to share our home and a little paradise with others, and you will find that we have accommodated almost everything you could wish for, and we are always looking for suggestions to make your experience even better. Our property manager Larry is onsite and greets you in person to make sure you know where everything is and have a real person to talk to locally for questions and vacation ideas. You will always have great service and fast response should you need anything.

Heidi Yee purchased this townhome in 2015

Why Heidi Yee chose Kulalani

You are only a few steps away from the Fairmont Orchid. The beauty of our 500 sf Lanai, where you can see Mauna Kea beyond the golf course, lava fields, and swaying palms, is why we chose this Kulalani townhome. And we looked at many, for years. Because it is one of only a few units tucked further towards the golf course, and beautifully landscaped, there is a kind of privacy that only this home enjoys. You will enjoy the morning sunrise and cool afternoon shade while enjoying the beautiful landscape. The living and dining furnishings are brand new. Master bedroom is king size, mattresses are top of the line Beautyrest Black. Hawaiiana style decor and local art are designer touches. Each bedroom is special. As scenic and removed from the hustle and bustle as we are, we've still equipped this home with more modern conveniences than you will find in rental homes. WIFI DSL Internet, HDTV with Premium Channels like HBO and Showtime and ON-Demand with DVR included at no extra cost. Most rentals still have analog cable with standard definition TV. Local Phone with free unlimited calling to US and CANADA.

What makes this townhome unique

Beach Club Beach Club Beach Club. Private. Gated. Beautiful Palms as far as the eyes can see. Shops. Entertainment. Best Beaches only minutes away. Hawaiian Culture. History. Trails. The Fairmont Orchid. You can enjoy it as if you were staying there. The Restaurants. Beach. Happy Hour. Kulalani's 2 Pools and 2 Spas with a world class Fitness Center. Never crowded. All free to guests. I could go on forever but I don't want to spoil all the discovery for you!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow. Easily 5 stars...

My wife and I (+ 2 friends) were trying to stay at the Hilton but prices were outrageous so we started looking around at VRBO's. A friend recommended this spot that is family owned, that wasn't yet listed so we were the first people to be able to stay here.

We are not your typical VRBO people. We like to stay at nice resorts but try to look for deals at the same time.

After this experience, I asked myself what's the point of staying in a hotel ever again? From the location (Right around the corner from the Orchid, great sunsets from the back porch, Beach club, the Lanai with forever views) to being close to the grocery store or restaurants we felt like we owned our own private luxury condo for a weekend without having any of the responsibilities.

The private beach is the best one on the island. We went to 5 or 6 other beaches but always came back to the private one. Endless snorkeling, lifeguard, beachfront drinks and wifi with good kalua pork sandwiches. My friend brought hammocks that we set up on the beach palm trees. It was perfect.

The rooms are spotless, the sunset views over the golf course in each bedroom are very unique, and you can't see any of the other condos on the premise from inside, so it's pretty private. Not much of a golfer but the course is right in your back yard, and it's very beautiful. The owners who live here obviously use the place for themselves so you have everything you need if you want to grill on the porch. We cooked dinner at least 5 or 6 times (ahi on the grill, streak, shrimp, etc) for the week and a half we stayed.

The WIFI was fast for me when I was working remotely. HDTV/Blu Ray were awesome. AC works really well. Kitchen had everything. Washer and dryer were small but new so no complaints. Garage is a little small too but I was able to fit the 4 door Jeep rental. Beds were super comfortable. I know my wife and I will definitely be back at this exact spot. Thanks so much!

Amazing and Memorable

  • 5 of 5

My sisters and I totally enjoyed our stay at Alohale. Beautifully appointmented and despite the rain and haze many days, the view of Mauna Kea was breathtaking. Even better than described. Your property manager was always responsive and cordial and although we had a few things that needed attending, they were quickly resolved without imposition. We will be back! Mahalo and Aloha.

Right out of the gate we found that communication with Larry was easy and he was helpful when informing us of the condo, resort and surrounding area. He gave us great ideas on where to eat, snorkel and shop for groceries. We didn't need to bother him the rest of our stay but if we did I'm sure he would've been right there ready to help!

The folder in the condo has a lot of brochures that are helpful when looking for a good place to eat nearby since there are so many options. Speaking of the condo --- IT IS HUGE and immaculate! Yes, the pictures are beautiful but it is far more spacious in person, especially the two guest bedrooms upstairs. There were 3 couples in our group and we left all the kids at home for this trip but there is more than enough room for multiple kids to join in on the fun. There was a crib in one of the closets for little ones too and the upstairs bathroom has plenty of space to share with others.

The kitchen --- HOLY SMOKES is there a ton of room in there. They provide a lot of small kitchen appliances so you can stock up the kitchen and not worry about finding dinner out somewhere every night.

The sliding glass walls are a major plus. We are from Washington state and we only get the opportunity to open our homes up 3-4 months out of the year so this was a huge excitement for us. They are easy to move and there is the option of screen sliders as well to keep critters out.

All the amenities and grounds were kept very well but the pool wasn't where we spent a ton of time. When we did visit the pool/hot tub area we pretty much had it to ourselves but we spent most of our time on a beach somewhere.

Mauna Lani Beach Club -- this is a nice perk of staying at Mauna Lani. The beach club was the perfect spot for quiet and calm snorkeling, kids to play in the water(hardly any waves at all) or just a nice quiet beach to relax on. We actually taught two of our friends how to snorkel there and they were so amazed at how many fish are just steps into the water.

This neighborhood is incredibly quiet and friendly. We love waking up early in Hawai'i to the warm air and gorgeous sunrises and you will not be disappointed by the sunrises over Mauna Kea!

One last thing, we walked to a lot of places when we were there but uber is available within the area which is really nice if you've had a drink or two.

We hope you enjoy your stay as much as we did! Mahalo to Larry for getting us set up for a week to remember!
