  • Loved it all. Peaceful and relaxing vacation.

    "This was our first stay in the Mauna Lani area. We stayed in G201 from 3/20-3/26 and loved every minute of it. My DH even said upon entering “If I had known the place was so nice, we could’ve stayed here the whole time.” (Before arriving here, we stayed in Volcano for 3 nights.) I will say I wanted to stay closer to the water but the view from the lanai was great. We could see the ocean and sometimes hear the waves. The only issue I had was that sounds from the lanais seemed to echo off the other buildings. This is a low density complex which never ever seemed crowded. Several times we felt we had the place to ourselves. This unit was huge for a one bedroom. Nice big kitchen, roomy living area and 2 full bathrooms. The couch makes into a bed, although we didn’t use it. I was thinking we could bring along one of our nieces next time and they could have the couch and their own bathroom. The bed was comfy and waking up to seeing palm trees outside was always a treat. We did have an issue with ants in the kitchen. When I called about them, we were brought ant traps. These seemed to work well, but we would still occasionally see ants here and there. No big deal to us. We kept all food in the fridge. Lots of towels available, but only one real beach towel. You know the kind of long and colorful towels you take to the beach. We discovered later that bigger “beach towels” were in the unit, but they were white. This is one thing I think they could improve upon. We did like having a washer and dryer in the unit and used it a few times. There was laundry detergent already there and available. The terraces are a quick walk to Makaiwa Bay and the beach. They have cabanas and loungers for use. The snorkeling here is some of the best I’ve ever experienced. Lots and lots of fish in very clear water once you are about 25 yards from the beach. Snorkel early in the day for the best conditions. We went one afternoon and the water was a little choppy. The adjacent fish ponds make for a nice relaxing walk around the area. It’s also a nice walk over to the Mauna Lani Hotel for drinks and dinner. The pool and BBQ area were rarely busy. I went to the pool 3 times and had it all to myself. BBQs you can reserve time at or they have a grill and go BBQ if you don’t want to eat there. There’s a Foodland grocery store about a mile away. They have a nice deli and fresh food selections if you don’t want to cook. What I was missing was an ABC store, but it’s about"

  • Outstanding holiday rental

    "This immaculately kept villa was the ideal vacation spot for our family. The kitchen was better equipped than my home kitchen and the home was pristinely clean. There were more than ample bath towels and extra large swimming towels for the pool. The pools and gym on the property were equally as well maintained. We were walking distance from the grocery store and a variety of shops. One week as way too short."

  • Home away from home

    "This home was clean and beautiful. I felt right at home as did my husband and two small kids. The kitchen was nicely stocked and for things I didn't have, Foodland Farms was just minutes away and a very good little grocery store. In the same complex was a some shops (HIC surf shop, Ruth's Chris, Kimobean Hawaiian Coffee, a 4D experience (good distraction for the rainy day!)). W/D was very nice to have. They had beach towels, sand toys, beach chairs. Loved this home, would definitely recommend to my friends (I already have actually). Mahalo Wendi and Larry. Your aloha was truly appreciated!!"

  • A Great Condo, with a Caveat.

    "Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This was our second stay in K-301 of Mauna Lani Terrace, but we have stayed in an identical unit in the building before. The location, layout, quality of construction, condition of this unit is excellent, and that is why we have come back and will do so again in the future. The only negative part of our experience in K-301 was the state of the kitchen equipment - below par for the kind of unit we rented and the price we paid: low quality, Walmart-type, pots and pans, and few of them; a hodge-podge of dishes, reminiscent of what we had when we were poor college kids and bought stuff at Goodwill; maybe the answer is that when you have a rental unit you put out whatever is left over, but I can attest to the fact that other cheaper units in Mauna Lani are much better equipped. I do not want to belabor the point; our stay at K-301 was wonderful, and who can argue with the weather on the Big Island when you come from Anchorage in October?"
