Perfect location, private lanai and spacious accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in unit E2 (ground floor, 2 bed/2 bath) at the Mauna Lani Golf Villas for 10 days. This is a privately owned unit. Anthony was excellent to deal with and has an on-site property manager, Bennett, who looks after any issue that may arise during your stay. They can both be reached via text and answer very quickly.

Tho location of the condo is perfect. The golf villas area is very quiet and spacious. We visited the Waikoloa Beach area which is about a 15 minute walk (on a lava trail) or a 5 minute drive. This is where the King & Queen shops are located, Hilton resort and also MANY condo complexes. We found this area much too busy and congested and were very happy we decided to stay in Anthony’s unit at the Golf Villas of Mauna Lani instead. There is a small grocery store (Foodland) and also a few shops within Mauna Lani (Tommy Bahama, coffee shop, jewellery, etc).

The lanai is covered and sheltered from the wind - which blew at approx 25-35 miles per hour 4 days during our stay. Even on windy days we were able to sit outside for morning coffee and dinner in the evening. In my opinion, the winds during our stay were comparable to what you would find in the Kapalua area on Maui. The lanai offers a narrow but pretty view of lava, and tall palm trees. If you pull your chair just off the concrete you have a beautiful view of the golf course and evening sunset. E2 is located between the 9th and 10th risk of getting hit by a stray golf shot while sitting outside.

Inside the unit is very spacious with an extremely comfortable king size bed in the master and a queen in the 2nd bedroom with quality sheets. The rooms have good separation between them. Both bathrooms are spacious and nicely finished. There are lots of towels. The kitchen was well equipped with some spices, salad spinner and the cooking utensils you need. No garlic press so bring one if you like to use garlic. The unit has its own propane bbq and table with 4 chairs on lanai. Beach towels, chairs, umbrella, boogie board, small cooler bags and snorkel equipment are all at the condo. WiFi works well in the condo and on the lanai. The common pool and gym are very nice.

We would stay here again without hesitation and think these condos are great value and offer quality accommodations. This is not an area with nightlife but if you want a peaceful relaxing stay I strongly suggest booking with Anthony.

Owner's Response: Aloha Shannon, I am so glad we were able to provide everything you needed for an enjoyable stay. Hawaii is a very special place and we know people travel a long way to get here. You deserve the best!! Just a minor correction to your review. Our Villa is H2. Mahalo, Anthony

Great Stay!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 2 teen boys stayed at the Mauna Lani over the 4th of July for 16 days. Everything about the condo was fantastic. Had a couple of questions on the day the manager was off duty and texted the owner and he helped my out in a matter of minutes. The grounds were fantastic (even the gardeners were nice!) The pool outstanding.

The couple of times there were other guests there you would have hardly known because of the size and layout. The condo was well stocked, clean, in great working condition and as advertised. Beach club was nice. Even the guard to beach 49 was nice. (I think you are picking up on the theme). Highly recommended!

Very Relaxing

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay at the Mauna Lani Golf Villas. The villa was equipped with everything we needed. We especially loved the outdoor area. We were able to BBQ and watch the sunset at the same time. Can't wait to go back!

Very Special Place For Our Celebration

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I decided to celebrate our joint retirement with two weeks at the Golf Villas following review of the VRBO website and owner communications. Having our own VRBO rental unit in Colorado we understand the effort required to provide great holiday experiences. The condo far exceeded our hopes and we felt completely at home while visiting. The condo was larger then I expected, had great appointments, fans everywhere, very comfortable beds and great beach towels! From an assortment of coolers for volcano hikes to the evening sunsets after barbequing local fresh fish we thoroughly enjoyed the location, community, convenient pool and hot tub. For two weeks our car trunk was loaded with provided beach chairs, boogie boards and umbrella. The condo proximity to local beaches, farmers markets, restaurants and island excursions in general was excellent. Having been to all other Hawaiian islands several times I have to say the Big Island, especially in this northwest corner has the best selection of beaches in the state. The protected private beach was super handy when the surf was too high.

Bennet made excellent recommendations for restaurants with both great food and reasonable prices. After talking with Bennet and communicating with the owners during our preparations we have learned a few best practices to take home to our rental business. Thanks for making our Big Island adventure special!

Did not meet our expectations

  • 2 of 5

When we,arrived, there was no toilet paper in master bathroom.and no laundry soap. 3 light bulbs were out in vanitys in bathrooms. Shower was not cleaned prooerly. One propane tank was empty. There was no CD player and no music on cable TV so no ability to listen to music. The TV had modum problems that had to be repaired.

For what we paid, we expected better glassware, dishes and flatware.

The manager, Bennett, was full of excuses but of little action.

We stayed in another unit last year and rated it a 5. Guess they just spoiled us.

Owner's Response: We are sorry your stay did not meet your expectations but it is astonishing how 2 guests can view the same villa so differently. Please read the review of the guest that stayed immediately before you. They rated it a 5 and were very complimentary of everything. For further reference, the CD/DVD player is part of the big screen TV in the living room (on the side of TV), there are 2 propane tanks to enable uninterrupted use of the grill, and Hawaii cable is notoriously problematic but this effects everyone. The toilet paper and laundry detergent were an oversight for which we apologize. I understand you are longtime friends of the owners of the other villa you reference. I am sure this contributed to your experience.

Outstanding, relaxing and exceptional local assistance!

  • 5 of 5

Location, furnishings, amenities, local concierge, cleanliness...everything was exceptional!

Snorkel gear, boogie boards, coolers, beach towels, etc. Everything we needed for a perfect vacation.

Bennett met us when we arrived and provided excellent recommendations for the Waimea farmers market and a great volcanoes day trip.

We'd go back in a heartbeat!!
