  • Perfect introduction to the Big Island!

    "Everything about renting this condo was top notch. The owner went out of his way to make sure our 11 night stay was perfect. The condo was thoroughly stocked with everything we needed. Beds were comfortable, furnishings were nice and the kitchen was equipped with the necessities and then some. The location of the condo was great. There was a short walk to the bbq/pool which we used a few times. Beautiful walk to the beach. Wonderful snorkeling right at the property. I highly recommend this condo for a family or couples traveling together or for anyone wanting to relax and enjoy a peaceful, beautiful vacation. Great experience!"

  • 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"

  • The Best Renter Experience Ever

    "I have been renting in Hawaii for the last 10 years or so, yet this is my first review. Booking was extremely easy, I like the availability calendar feature on the website, since everything I do is last minute it speeds the process. When I booked I mentioned we were celebrating my mother's 88th birthday as a throw away comment. On the day of our arrival I got a text welcoming us, it was incredibly detailed on how to get to the property and more importantly how to get in the gated community after hours. When we opened the door balloons and a birthday lei along with a gift basket were waiting for my mother, nice touch. The air conditioning was also turned on so the house would be cool for our arrival. The house was perfect for 7 people. The furnishings were more or less new and in good condition. The lanai had a pool and hot tub. All the appliances were top end and the ice maker worked. The property was immaculate, had plenty of towels, detergent and bleach for the washer and condiments/spices in the kitchen. The garage had bikes and beach toys. In a nutshell, this was the nicest, most user friendly place we ever rented. Kudos to Diana from the reality company for making our experience on the big island a happy one."

  • Wonderful Mauna Lani Palm Villas rental -- steps to the pool

    "Our family (including two parents, two young kids, and a grandparent) was wowed by this beautiful ground floor condo at Mauna Lani Palm Villas. We were so glad to have this place to call "home" when we arrived, driving here from Kona Airport, exhausted by our 14-hour journey from New England. It is very clean and comfortable, and has air-conditioning for those hot afternoons! The unit has 3 BR, 2 BA, very well laid out. It was so convenient to have a washer-dryer in unit, for use after trips to the beach and pool. The lanai/patio adjacent to the golf course, was a favourite place to gather in the early mornings to eat breakfast and watch the sunrise. The garden is beautiful and features lush green tropical foliage, coconut palm trees and flowering plants. We saw several geckos and one huge praying mantis when we were there! The kids enjoyed playing in the garden, and in the huge driveway in front of the house. The unit is steps to the pool and the kids really enjoyed walking over to play in the pool. We also drove to the Mauna Lani Beach Club, and enjoyed swimming in the protected cove. It's great to be able to park at the "owner's/renter's" lot, which is so close to the beach. It's only a 10-15 minute drive to Mauna Kea beach, arguably one of the most beautiful, and relatively secluded beaches in the world! The boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrella in the garage, so generously provided by the owners, were wonderful to use on our trips to the famous Kohala coast beaches. We drove to the Hilton Waikoloa, Kawaihae, Hawi, Keokea beach park, Pololu Valley lookout, Waipio valley, and we would have loved to have gone snorkeling at Kua Bay/Captain Cook (but we simply didn't have the time for that). We felt lucky to have called this rental "home" in this magical place on earth, and felt sad to have to leave. We would certainly rent this unit again if/when we return to the Kohala coast of the Big Island."
