About the property

Beautiful 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom cottage in Mauna Lani with all the 'Fixins'!

Welcome to Our Aloha Aina! Aloha Aina literally means 'love of the land'. We love the Big Island, the people, and the culture; therefore, we rooted here part time and opened our home to share this love of the land with y'all! Come follow us on Facebook at OurAlohaAina as we post last minute deals, share pictures of the Big Island, and recommend the good eats or find us on the great world wide web ouralohaaina!

Our home is a 3 bedroom and 3 bathroom single level and standalone cottage built in the Fall of 2014 in KaMiLo. We are 30 minutes from the airport in the Mauna Lani Resort close to the rare few white sandy beaches on the Big Island. Our guests have exclusive access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club where snorkeling, kayaking, paddle boarding, and fine dining are available.

What is so special about our home is our focus on making you feel right at home with a touch of luxury! Our emphasis is on cleanliness, comfort, and enjoyment.


Our linens and bedding, including the quilts, are WASHED after every guests! Stained items are retired immediately. Both master suites have cal king beds and hypoallergenic microfiber quilts! The quilts are light and perfect for the warm Hawaii beach climate. The 3rd bedroom has 2 twin beds and Martha Stewart Collection quilts. (The 2 twin beds can easily convert to a king size bed! You will never feel the gap in between!) Coming in September 2017, we will have hypoallergenic microfiber quilts in the twin bedroom as well! These quilts are light and durable and can withstand washing per each set of guests! In addition, our cleaning crew has very high standards in keeping our home clean for our guests. They are not only cleaners, they are cleaning inspectors in which they inspect after cleanings are done to ensure EVERYTHING is clean!

2. Comfort:

We are mindful with our kitchen, living room, and bedrooms. We provide a Vitamix blender, a KitchenAid Mixer, and a real Rice Cooker in our kitchen! It is also fully stocked with everything you’d need to make cooking enjoyable as if you are right at home! Our sectionals in the living room offers everyone a place to sprawl out, chill, and watch TV while you relax after a day of adventures, whether it be hiking, snorkeling, diving, or horseback riding! In the bedrooms, our mattresses are a good balance of softness and firmness to give you a great night's rest.

3. Enjoyment:

As you walk in our home, you'll be greeted with a wonderful welcome basket with a 7oz 100% Kona coffee for your morning wake up boost and a bottle of wine for your evening relaxation! Next, as a very active family of five, we believe in enjoying the outdoors! We researched and added two new 21-speed Giant Escape hybrid bikes from a specialty bike shop in addition to our original cruiser bikes! These bikes ride smoothly around Mauna Lani or to the Beach Club, especially in the morning or later in the afternoon while the temperature is cooler and breezy. We also have a double kayak for our more adventuresome guests. Our home is only a few houses down from the pool, hot tub, and fitness center and roughly a little over 1 mile away from the closest beach. Beach chairs, umbrella, boogie boards, snorkeling gear, and beach toys are just a few things we provide. In addition, our home has a spacious shared courtyard with a hammock as well as 2 lanais in the back yard. We enjoy watching the sunrise from our lanais. The green space past our lanais is a great place for children to play and roll around! It is not only spacious but also private and secure. While watching the children play, the family can gather around out on the lanais and use our Weber grill for some BBQs! On a lazy day or a quiet evening, our home has an Apple TV and Netflix for you to catch up on shows and movies!

About Kelly Cornelison

Aloha! We are Brian and Kelly Cornelison! Big Island is a special place for us as it is where we honeymooned back in 2007. We have been back every year and get homesick when we are 'away'. We currently live in Atlanta, GA with our 3 handful cutie pies! As an active family, we enjoy hiking at Waipio, Pololu Valley, Kilauea, Southpoint, captain Cook's monument. We also love going to Hilo for their farmer's market. There are just so much to do here on the Big Island!

Kelly Cornelison purchased this house in 2014

Why Kelly Cornelison chose Kamuela

We accidentally came upon KaMiLo in March of 2014. It was love at first sight! We love the design of the homes and how the cottages are all standalone! We get to have a private backyard and a nice shared courtyard for our 3 little munchkins and at the same time, very close to the pool and the nearby beaches! So here we are!

clean, well appointed, great response time from owner

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at this condo. We ended booking it very last minute, since our prior condo booking ended up closing the pool. We scrambled to find something just a few days before our arrival, and Kelly responded quickly and helped make the re-booking painless and helped put my mind at ease . She also checked on us several times during our stay to make sure we had everything we needed. The condo was clean, well-appointed, had everything we needed. We enjoyed the private back yard as well. We stayed here 4 nights and were very comfortable. Kelly also processed our security deposit credit very quickly.

Such a wonderful experience!

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed in Kamilo a few times now and we had another wonderful stay! The house was a perfect fit our family of five, everyone had enough room stretch out! It was in a great location, everything we needed was there and the garage had anything we might need for the Beach Club! It felt like home as soon as we walked in. Kelly was always available to answer any questions we had and also checked in with us occasionally to make sure everything was going well. The fruit basket at the beginning of our stay was such a great treat for everyone! We would definitely stay there again!
