Mauna Kea Villa #12
We had a great time in your beautiful Villa ! Probably enjoyed all the amenities more than many of your visitors since we had to spend 6 of the 14 days house bound due to the horrendous winds. Beautiful decorations, fully equipped kitchen and a view to end all views. Alexis was extremely helpful and friendly. Only suggestion I have is it would have been nice to have more seating outside. The lounges were comfortable to lie flat on but would have liked to have comfortable chairs to sit out on or lounges that had different positions. All in all a wonderful experience.
A Heavenly Oasis
This Mauna Kea Villa was perfect. It served as headquarters and Sawyer family home central for our five-week exploration of the Big Island. Sarah, the owner, was always professional and responsive in our talks before we signed our lease. The few times we needed to reach out for a little help, Alexis, the villa manager was likewise professional and responsive. The home itself was beautifully yet comfortably appointed. It exuded a classic Hawaiian spirit of understated elegance, just like the Mauna Kea hotel does. Might it be the ghost of Laurence Rockefeller? The pool was a delight on sunny afternoons when we returned from the beach. It even had a pool table for Minnesota Fats aficionados! If you believe in the mantra “location-location-location,” this is the place to be. We wanted for nothing.
Mauna Kea Villa 12
Nice, but then the complex is Mauna Kea! The layout is excellent with two masters at either end of the unit, each with individual baths. Lots of interesting stereo equipment, but no instructions on how to use this equipment. The unit is dated and there are better villas at more competitive rates. Shop around. The property manager was outstanding and very helpful.
Perfect Place in Paradise
We stayed at this lovely villa for 8 days with our daughter and son-in-law. The villa was exactly as pictured, but was better than imagined. The villa is layed out perfectly with the bedrooms at either end of the building giving each family a sense of privacy. The fantastic gourmet kitchen was very spacious and was equipped with superb appliances, and the living area was in between with a spectacular view of the ocean. Also, included is a pool, hot tub, gas grill and pool table. The villa was immaculate and very well taken care of. Alexis, the property manager was responsive and took care of a few minor problems at the beginning of our stay. The beautiful Mauna Kea Resort is pristine and we opted for the guest visits. We enjoyed the beach, pool, spa and most of the restaurants-all which were outstanding. We absolutely loved staying at the villa!
The Villa is located within the Villas at Mauna Kea. There are breathtaking views of the ocean, golf course and Mauna Kea Mountain as will as sweeping views up and down the Kohala Coast.
