About the property

About Brecken Pitts

As you probably have figured out Hawaii is a paradise, a perfect mix of sun, serenity and fun. It is also a great getaway from the rainy Seattle winters, where we live full time, and that is why we choose to buy here.

We love the Big Island for its diversity. The stark contrast between the dry, brittle lava and the lush green of the plants brings two worlds together. We also wanted a place that had a good location…walking distance to restaurants, a beach nearby, and trails to run on. Another criteria of ours was that our location be far close to the pool (for the kids sake). Swimming, snorkeling, hiking, exploring, running, and eating our just some of our favorite activities here.

We have two young kids, and we wanted to start creating memories of fun family vacations with grandparents, aunts, uncles and friends. To us Mauna Lani is paradise.

Brecken Pitts purchased this townhome in 2013

Guestbook comments from the manager

We had an excellent vacation! Loved Hawaii and did most of the suggested things on the list of “our favorite things” from Anne. We also snorkeled with dolphins and manta rays with a company called Splashers – they were great! We rode ATV’s with a company called Ride the Rim – loved that too! Monstera was great. Jackie Rays was great. Bamboo in Hawi was great. We liked visiting shops in Mauna Lani, Hawi, and Waimea. Great burger place in Waimea called Village Burger – mushroom burger is great! Hapuni great for waves and body surfing! Definitely get there early. Lifeguards do a great job there. This has been our favorite vacation! Ooh – and try to see the hula dancers at the Mauna Lani Shops. Thursday night show was great and free! Enjoy and relax. This condo is awesome! Love the beds and décor. Great!!! Great!!! Wow – sunset!! Petroglyphs are cool. Thank you! ?

Amazing family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

This is by far the best place our family has ever stayed! We love to cook all our meals and kitchen was equipped with good quality utensils and had everything we needed to prepare some pretty gourmet meals. The access to the pool was fantastic and it literally had everything we could have wanted to take the beach ( chairs, cooler, boogie boards, snorkels, watershoes, umbrellas, buckets, life vests, pool noodles). The place was very clean and comfortable ( no stiff wicker furniture that looks nice but is not comfortable here). I also liked that it had a huge solid wood table ( not glass) to eat at and tons of towels. I also liked that it had some staples for cooking handy ( spices, salt and pepper, mustard etc). We were two families travelling together and we had tons of space. I would highly recomend this place and would stay here again in a heartbeat!!!

Family Dream Unit!

  • 5 of 5

Don’t hesitate booking this family friendly unit!

The location within the complex is ideal, so close to the pool but with a buffer of tropical trees and a mix of sun and shade on the lanai. The lanai over looks a grassy area where our kids played catch and tag everyday and we were still able to see them from the living room and kitchen. The kitchen is well stocked and the decor and furnishings throughout are beautiful! All the extras you could possibly need have been provided to ensure your comfortable, happy stay including all of the beach stuff and everything you need for baby. The extra mattress pad for the pack and play was greatly appreciated. We also appreciated the smart TV as we were able to log into our Netflix account during downtime for the kids. Honestly, I cant say enough good things about this unit and the owner, who communicated and made the check in super easy. We will definitely be coming back to this unit soon... like next year!

Thank you so very much Brecken for the best family vacation yet!

A home in paradise !

  • 5 of 5

A wonderful home in paradise. This property was clean and very well maintained! The owner allowed a late check out that we needed since our plane was delayed. You cannot ask for better. The description of the property was accurate. I do recommend this property me and my family enjoyed it and enjoyed the facility surrounding the property (Pool, Beach,

Island oasis

  • 5 of 5

Perfect home and the owner was so helpful with planning activities. We had never been to the Big Island of Hawaii so did not know what restaurants to dine at, beaches to visit or what activities are a must. The owner gave us a list of her top recommendations which was really helpful. We went swimming with manta rays, ate dinner on the beach with live music, watched a free hula and fire show (twice, it was that good), hiked around the volcano, ate local fruit, held seahorses, and of course relaxed on the beach. The trip was so fun and relaxing at the same time. My daughter had a blast. Another big plus is how close this home is to all the shops down the road, did that walk several times and was so enjoyable. This is my new favorite vacation spot.

Best place ever!

  • 5 of 5

'Your Big Island Home' was exactly what we were looking for in a vacation rental home. It is perfect for a family or friends traveling together. There was plenty of space. The kitchen had everything we needed to cook at home including spices and oils (which saves a lot of money). The built in BBQ was top of the line and anything we grilled on it turned out delicious. One of the best features of this home is that it is right next to the pool so if you forgot something in the house or needed a refill on your drink, you didn't have too far to go. There were lots of pool toys and beach toys provided. The private beach is stunning! We visited a lot of the public beaches around the island, but the private beach had everything you could want. There was a restaurant, rental shop, beach chairs, shade, coral reefs, and amazing Hawaiian scenery. This was our most relaxing and fun trip ever because we had everything we needed at the house. We have already booked our next stay.
