Mauna Kea: Luxury Resort Homes on the Kohala Coast
Our luxurious Mauna Kea vacation homes are the ultimate escape. Nestled in an exclusive residential section of the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel on the Kohala Coast of Hawaii Island, you’ll experience the 5-star resort in the privacy of your own luxury vacation estate.
West Hawaii is known for its gorgeous weather, perfect for a round of golf at one of the nearby courses or enjoying “America’s Best Beach” Kauna’oa Bay. The Hapuna Golf Course, an Arnold Palmer/Ed Seay design boasts panoramic ocean views with Maui in the distance, and the Mauna Kea championship course is truly oceanside – watch that over-the-ocean 3rd hole! Whatever your choice, you’ll enjoy the timeless beauty of the manicured grounds and picture-perfect blue sky.
The Kohala Coast location also offers easy access to exciting Big Island adventures. See remote waterfalls and flowing lava on a thrilling helicopter tour or take in the night sky at Mauna Kea volcano with their stargazing program at the Mauna Kea Visitors Center. From guided hikes to swimming with dolphins, when you stay at one of our Mauna Kea Resort vacation rentals you are in the center of it all.

Expert hula and fire dancers entertain during the magical night.
