Great stay

Palm Villa

Review by Megan M
This property is a dream. Very clean and had everything we needed and then some. On-site laundry is great, 7 beach towels available. Plus a lot of snorkel gear. A few coolers. The smaller day trip one is broken as is the boogie board and tommy Bahama beach chairs. The backpack parts are all ripped. This was a bummer as we use those at home to help carry towels and stuff. But we packed light for the walks to the beach. There’s 3 beach umbrellas. We have a party of 5 so having two umbrellas at the beach is nice. The sand is scorching in august. The grill outside is great, the view is great. Pool is heated and having the garage was a bonus. The condo is well maintained and has all the things you’d need, Even nail polish remover. Hoping this family has properties on other islands b/c we would stay with them again. Grateful to have a well maintained, well stocked, clean clean clean condo! With cozy beds !

Exceeded expectations

Review by Heather Santaga
We travelled from Mar 3 - Mar 17th, 2020, a family of 4 adults. Our villa (H23) was fabulous, spacious. Well stocked was an understatement, we had everything you might want, including travel water bottles. Location was good, under 5 min drive to grocery store & shops, walk 15-20 mins on historic trail thru lava rock to stunning ponds along ocean to private beach OR drive under 4 mins to same beach located in calm bay, easy to swim/snorkel in ocean - get to beach early (before 9:30am) if you want chairs, best bet, always bring your own. Sectional couch needs replacing but all other furniture in villa was lovely. It did get very dark around 7:30pm but flashlights were available if you wanted to go for a walk outside. We tended to drive somewhere for walk at night. In daytime, so many scenic places/trails to walk right outside our door - just fabulous views along the ocean. Short drive to other shopping (Kings Shops and Queens Marketplace) but larger shopping area about 40 min drive back to Kona-Kailua (near airport and Costco). There were lots of other beaches within a short drive north of us. Directions/recommendations printed in a great resource book in our unit put together by the management company plus villa had Tourist books for Island and fish. Best features of villa: peekaboo view of ocean, keyless entry to villa, liquid hand soap/lotion at every sink, kitchen had more items than you could ever use and lots of quantities, wonderful laminated maps of Mauna Lani area and map of Big Island (very useful), great private beach to use with staff checking in beach users so it never got overcrowded, access to an almost private pool & hot tub on villa property, easily accessible/immediately responsive property manager Kirsten for our villa. Villa and location is very quiet, felt very safe here. Would absolutely recommend this villa, this location and would return again.

A great location and lovely cozy spot just minutes from the beach. Our hostess was so responsive and flexible. Would highly recommend!

Everything was perfect and it was exactly as described.

Review by David Allie
Everything was perfect and it was exactly as described. Some highlights for us were the pool/hot tub access, the cabanas, and the grill. Easy access to the townhome and very easy to navigate around the resort. The only downfall was the parking. We had an SUV that was difficult to get in and out of the garage and actual parking spaces are extremely limited since it’s first come, first serve.

Perfect family getaway

Review by Jon Deane
Everything about the experience was great- easy to rent, great service from the property manager, and a really nice, well-appointed place to stay. It had everything we needed to enjoy time in the condo and at the beach. Palm Villas is our favorite family getaway destination!

Another fabulous stay in paradise!

Review by Lynn D.
This was our second time at this property this year, and once again, it was absolutely wonderful! The trip was a bit different this time: although still deliciously relaxing with coffee and chirping birds in the morning, this visit had us at the pool, the beach, and exploring more of the Big Island than last time around.

We loved our stay.

Review by Jennifer Adams
We loved our stay at the Mauna Lani Palm Villa Condo! It is in the perfect location close with access to a gorgeous pool and hot tub, and a short drive or walk to the beach club which we loved having access to. The layout was perfect for two couples with a king bed and en-suite on one side and a room on the other side with a queen bed and access to another bathroom. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed and the BBQ on the lanai was a special treat we used for outdoor dinners. The beach equipment with boogie boards, cooler, chairs, snorkel equipment, etc. was a bonus. We also had parking for two cars, one in the garage and one on the street. The pool was quiet in the evenings and most of the time we had it to ourselves! Communication with the property manager was easy and we always got a quick reply. Kristen was super helpful and we appreciated her assistance. We used the beach club access on our final day and felt spoiled with the white sand beach and cabanas. Although it was cloudy waters when we tried, snorkelling off the beach looked to be pretty decent in the right conditions. We loved our vacation on the Big Island and can’t wait to come back and hopefully stay here again!

Perfect for a family vacation.

Review by Kendal Grey
Outstanding rental property with fantastic location, great amenities (especially the bath products), and perfect for a family vacation. Everything in this listing is accurate but there is so much more to see and do in this area than I ever expected. My 3 year old loved the beautiful black bottom pool and proximity to a grocery store for at home cooking kept us much healthier than staying at a hotel. Also, the property manager Kristin was exceptional in checking on us / making sure we had everything we needed. Only thing I would mention is there is quite a large and somewhat steep staircase at the entry, so this might not be ideal for everyone, but was not an issue for us, even with a small child. We will definitely be back here again to stay for a longer visit.

We have 3 young children & also brought both grandmas along for our stay in Hawaii. We could not have picked a better place to stay. Beautiful, spacious, and well stocked. If we came back we would stay here again!

Everything was just right

Review by Julia Goldin
This vacation rental was an absolute dream. You can tell that every detail has been thought through by the owner and manager. This place had every single amenity that a family could want. Communication with property manager was easy and they were very available.

Perfect location for our family!

Review by Ryan Secrist
We were so incredibly comfortable in this location. It was private, and a quiet community. The kids swam in the pool often and everyone was welcoming. The home was thoughtfully stocked, very comfortable, plenty of supplies, and bonus-great air conditioning. Kirsten welcomed us and even helped bring in groceries that were melting in the back of the car. She was always very responsive when we texted questions. The beach club is close and we spent many hours paddle boarding, snorkeling and playing there. So easy to get to. And I think we went to the local juice 101 every single day... multiple times. We had such a beautiful vacation and can’t wait to return. We will definitely be staying here again! Wouldn’t hesitate to recommend it to anyone- especially families.

Five-star stay in a little piece of paradise!

Review by Julie Wojszynski
If you're looking for the perfect escape from your day-to-day, you can stop now. H-23 at Palm Villas in Mauna Lani was everything we hoped for - and more! Our mornings started with coffee on the private lanai while gazing out over the petroglyph fields located behind the property. There's a little slice of ocean visible beyond the palm trees, which you can hear if the morning songbirds aren't too loud. This is the same field you walk through to reach the private beach club, which has water sports, a restaurant, good toilets (!), and parking. Access is free with the unit rental. We spent most of our active vacation time either at the pool - only steps away - or at the beach. We had intended to go into Kona, but the area at Mauna Lani was so nice that we didn't feel like we needed to go down the coast. There are shops - including a grocery store - and restaurants less than a mile away, and you can sign up for the store's Maika‘i savings program even if you're not a resident. (Bonus when you're feeding a family in vacation!) Speaking of feeding the family, we mainly stuck to preparing our own food. The kitchen has everything you need to make and serve full meals, and there's a gas grill in the back. For the meals we didn't cook at home, we went to the Queen's Marketplace in Waikoloa. Of note, the house had (and I hope still does!) take-out menus for Ippy's Hawaiian BBQ with both gluten-free AND dairy-free options noted. That was HUGE for us! The Kohala Coast can get really hot, so it was nice to have TV, movies, and video games available for when we needed/wanted to be indoors. We mostly stuck to Netflix and classic Nintendo games - the unit has an NES Classic in the loft, and our kids loved it! I did too - the music beeping upstairs brought back fond childhood memories. There's not much more to say, except that we'll be back. The space is well-appointed, comfortable, and lovely, and I felt like we could truly relax. Some vacations feel like we should be doing things all the time, because you can't spend all day in a hotel room! But here? If you need to take a shower and a nap in the middle of the day (the water pressure and beds are great, BTW), you absolutely can. I forgot to mention the dining room light fixture - it was so cool! When the windows are open, a cross-breeze comes through, cooling the whole place and tinkling the shells in the chandelier. It has a very soothing effect and brings home the overall feeling of peace! Can't wait to go back!

Third visit to H-23 - loved it!

Review by Anonymous
We had another great week at the Palm Villas. We enjoyed the comfort and nice furnishings of the condo, and we loved how well stocked and maintained the beach and snorkel gear was. We spent most of our time at the Mauna Lani Beach Club. This year we noticed you have to get there around 7:30 AM to score a cabana; it could be because it was spring break that it was busier than normal.

Great Stay!

Review by Ken W.
We loved our stay at this unit! Every thing was clean and in top condition, the location was great, and I particularly loved being able to go out on the deck and look out at the lava fields with the ocean as a backdrop. We'll be back.

It is a beautiful setting, gorgeous landscaping, the pool in beautiful surroundings!

Review by Gail L.W.
the home itself is absolutely lovely! Such a wonderful place to call home while on vacation. The only thing missing were the groceries, it is so well equipped. And the little thoughtful touches of toiletries was much appreciated especially when arriving in the early a.m.. Thank you for helping to make our holiday so remember able.

Calm, Quiet & Lovely

Review by Tom W.
There are several reasons why we keep returning to this townhouse. It’s away from the tourist crowds & hubub, well-appointed, comfortable, nicely decorated, relaxing, walkable to many places of interest, and convenient to hikes, beaches & markets. The owners and the manager are friendly, genuine & responsive.

A slice of paradise

Review by Richard G.
We have stayed in this Palm Villa condo several times and love it. There are lots of amenities that other condos don’t have. And, if there is anything you need during your stay, the local property manager is just a phone call away. We’ll be back!

We had a delightful stay at the property. Breakfast and dinner on the lanai was a treat.

Review by Denise W.
The Beach Club is a great bonus! Not very crowded, great snorkeling and excellent food and drinks. Enjoyed the pool as well as walking around the historic grounds.

Loved our stay here

Review by Steelerfan
We loved our stay in H23. On our first trip to the Big Island, we stayed at the Golf Villas, which are nearby and very similar looking to Palm Villas. But we liked the location of Palm Villas more- a shorter walk to the Mauna Lani Resort area and also the Palm Villas have fewer condos, so it is quiet and quaint feeling. We almost always had the pool to ourselves. And the pool area is absolutely beautiful. There is also a little gym that my husband used every morning to get his work out in for the day. My workout was snorkeling, which I love. The snorkeling from the beach club is amazing. I saw turtles, manta ray, eagle ray, Moray eel, white tipped reef shark just to name a few! And this was all during the week Hurricane Lane was heading our way. About the condo: it is just beautifully decorated , clean and the sheets felt amazing. Extremely comfortable beds. Kitchen had more than what we needed. We did not eat out as most places in the area are expensive. So we did alot of cooking and used the grill on the balcony. There is a large selection of snorkel gear all nicely organized in the garage. Plus beach chairs, toys, etc. The property manager was easy to contact and very responsive. We were able to check in to the condo a little early which was awesome instead of having to kill time with a car full of luggage and groceries. The reservation, booking process was very easy . I would highly recommend this condo and hope we can return soon (when a hurricane is not near by)!

A lovely gem for our Big Island Getaway

Review by Danielle M.
Thank you so much for providing such a lovely place to spend our vacation. My husband and I, along with our 21 yr old son and 17 yr old daughter enjoyed H23 very much. The extra space in the loft helped with our kids that don't care to share a room! The condo is lovely and well-appointed. Everything we needed! We did have a small issue with the pull-out couch in the loft, but the manager went out of her way to get us a replacement mattress that very night of our arrival. We also then had a repairman visit on the first business day to fix the couch. Thank you for such great attention to detail. The Palm Villas are in a beautiful setting and very conveniently located to our favorite beaches. The pool was a personal favorite for relaxing after a long day of snorkeling and sight-seeing. We also took advantage of the tennis courts and a yoga class. Overall, our stay was just lovely and we definitely recommend this beautiful gem to anyone needing a gorgeous place to stay on Hawaii! Mahalo!!

Great property for our Big Island Trip

Review by Andrea M.
The property was perfect for our family of 7. There was plenty of room to spread out and the beds were very comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes so we were able to cook dinner several nights. The outside grill was very nice as well! The Mauna Lani resort was amazing! There was a free Hawaiian dance at the shops on Thursday night, with crafts for the kids. A great family atmosphere! We loved swimming in the pool, and enjoyed several walks to the fish ponds and beach. Having the snorkeling equipment was an extra bonus, as we got to see yellow tang, angel fish, and ono as we swam at the beach- an experience we won’t soon forget! JT was very helpful when we had an issue with one of the toilets flushing. It was fixed within a very short time. There was tons of information provided at the property to give us ideas of what to do when we left the resort. It was a great help having the maps and tour book to get around. Overall, this was a perfect place for our family to stay while enjoying our very first trip to Hawaii!

Beautiful, comfortable accommodations in a quiet, private complex.

Review by Vai R.
This is a great place to stay! Very comfortable and attractively furnished, high-end functional kitchen, beach supplies in the garage, plenty of sheets, pillows and towels. There are also books on local hikes, Hawaiian fish, and so forth. The windows look out on an open area and it is very private. The owners have clearly paid a lot of attention to detail, and we (2 parents, 2 teens) were very comfortable during our one-week stay. This location is also very convenient for exploring the Big Island. For me, there were a couple of minor cons in comparison to some other similar nice condos. These have to do with the Palm Villas complex, as opposed to this particular unit: 1) The walk to the beach is pretty long, especially if it's hot and you're carrying stuff. If you want to be right "at" the beach you will be disappointed. It's a very quick drive, however. 2) The pool area is beautiful and lots of fun, but there is no bar or restaurant so it's not really a resort-type of ambience there, more quiet. Very kid-friendly, though, and the pool is very close to the H23 unit.

Third time at Palm Villas H Units!

Review by Tammy T.
Palm Villas H units bring us back to Kona year after year. I research a lot. I'm picky, very picky, and Palm Villas is perfect for our family - whether it is a trip with my three teens, or just myself and two friends. Breaking it down... Why Mauna Lani properties? Simple, the Mauna Lani Beach Club access to the private beach with covered cabanas, crystal clear water, an amazing on-site restaurant, stand-up paddle board and canoe rentals and an uncrowded sandy beach where you can take a 7am dip with no one around but a honu and some fish, or watch an evening sunset while floating on your back in warm ocean waters in a cove out of the wind. Why Palm Villas condos versus Golf Villas or any of the other complexes at the Mauna Lani property? - Palm is across the street from the spa. - Palm has 8 buildings to share the pool. Golf Villas has more and pool is more crowded. - Palm pool has never had more than 3 other people in it at any time we've gone. It is bath water warm with stairs in for little kids, 3' depth and 4' depth. Perfect options for all. - Palm his closest to the path to the private Mauna Lani Beach Club and is a 15 minute walk through the lava and koi ponds on a paved walkway. - Palm is closest to the Mauna Lani shopping complex (grocery store, Tommy Bahama Grill, ...) and you can easily walk the two blocks home after a successful happy hour or for a morning coffee. - And a big reason we chose Palm for both visits was our unit's owner, the Ellinsons, who were great to work with and who's units (H23, H3, H4) are all amazingly clean, well stocked, and leave you needing for nothing. Pool: It is the perfect size, always empty, clean and has a very hot, hot tub and waterfall with a bench behind it to sit. Small Gym: Next to the pool. Vacation so we never went in but we saw other 20-somethings giving it a try. We just watched them go in from the hot tub - ha! Location - Location - Location: We love it up north. We drive south to Alii and Kona for the farmers markets and cooked almost every meal in the well stocked units. The outdoor BBQs are clean and perfect with an overhead fan keeping you cool as you sip drinks and watch the sunset's glow. H23 v H4: Both units are great. One is just larger than the other but highly recommend either. Highly recommend this VRBO rental! Aloha!

Everything Anticipated in Super Comfotable Unit

Review by Margaret W.
This two plus bedroom, two bathroom unit has everything you could want or need. The suite is very clean, and has all the extras like spices, oil, beach toys and equipment, laundry etc. I literally can’t think of one thing that was missing that would have been helpful to have. The communication was excellent, the directions easy to follow and the development also has many amenities like a great pool and hot tub. We didn’t golf or use the fitness center but I’m sure these are great too. The location of this particular unit is also superb as within the block it is quiet facing towards the petroglyphs park but also so easy to walk over to the pool. We walked everywhere. Each night we walked up to get groceries for supper. The food land in the shops has everything you need. We originally thought we would need to drive further afield to get groceries but the food land had everything including or even especially high quality organic items. Mauna Lani is the perfect full facility resort without being over-the-top. It seems a little more refined than some of the other resorts.There were loads of young families as well as retired folks out and about so there was no one obvious demographic. Walking to the beach, restaurants or hiking trails and parks was all easy. For a vigorous 12km+ loop walk to Waikoloa Queens Market place via the Kings Trail and return via the Shoreline/Fisherman’s Trail (but wear supportive shoes). All in all a perfect holiday rental. Many thanks to these hosts.

Charming apt with lovely walk to beach club, tennis courts and short drive to Hapuna beach.

Review by Derval K.
We really enjoyed our stay at Palm Villas. The accommodation was lovely. The loft area is a nice addition to give kids their own space. We spent most days at Hapuna or Mauna Kea beaches, the drive is just 5-10 minutes. Evenings we spent snorkeling at the beach club, taking just a 15 walk through the natural preserve close by or we'd taking a swim in the pool at the apartment . Wonderful holiday for everyone.

Good value. I really appreciated the beach equipment and it was in good shape. Great master bed - better than mine at home. And the Par 3 course At the resort was a nice bonus for my family of teens.

Ideal Location/Luxury Resort

Review by Susan T.
This was our 3rd stay at the Mauna Lani Palm Villas and is definitely our preferred location on Big Island. The place is very high end and property is beautifully maintained. The beach club was a little overcrowded this time (first trip in March) but still very nice. Enjoyed our daily walks through the nature preserve/lava field. The condo is quiet and very nicely decorated with everything you need for a relaxing vacation. Our family of 5 would definitely stay here again. Highly recommend.

Would love to return

Review by Diane D.
We stayed at Palm Villas for one week and would definitely return. Where do I start? The lanai was my favourite area. The view of the lava field is lovely. There was even a small lava tunnel. The sunset from the lanai was amazing. Being on the second floor was a bonus as you could see a silver of the ocean from there. The living area was comfortable. Large enough for our family of 4 to lounge around or play games. We ate in most evenings and found that the kitchen had everything you could want. The barbecue worked well and it was nice to have a sink right next to it. The binder with restaurants, activities and directions was handy. We had planned most of our itinerary but made some adjustments after reading their info. The walk to the beach was great. A winding path through the lava field. You have to do that at least once when you stay. The pool and hot tub were convenient and a nice spot to cool off after a long day of hiking or shopping. The programmed air conditioning system meant we never had to worry about wasting electricity cooling while we weren't there. It would automatically reset to 85 around the time we would be leaving and it took a few minutes to cool down when we returned. The location - walking distance to the shops is perfect. The Foodland, Bohdi Tree and Kimobean were all we needed! Having coolers and ice packs were very handy when we went to a market and didn't return to the condo for a few hours. Our produce was still fresh. JT - building manager unbelievably responsive. Usually responded within an hour no matter small our concern. A bonus was the weather seemed so much better in Mauna Lani compared to Kailuea-Kona or Waimea. It was always sunny and never any VOG. My only issue was the parking. Each unit has a garage or carport, which is essentially empty but you are not allowed to use. There are 20-30 spots for guests to park for the entire complex which is not enough in high season. People that parked on the grass overnight received notices from the property association threatening to tow the vehicle. When we asked the building manager about it she said we could park in the spa's lot across the street but she also warned that they are threatening to tow vehicles left overnight. If you are returning after 7 PM you need to be aware that you may not have a spot to park. If it wasn't for the parking I would give the Palm Villas 5 stars.

Review by Marti A.
This condo was nicely situated for us, easy walking to tennis, shops and restaurants, the pool, and the small workout room. It's nicely decorated and very well equipped with kitchen items, towels, beach chairs, umbrellas and snorkel equipment. It was delightfully quiet with an interesting view of the lava caves (and a tiny sliver of ocean in the distance). The property manager is super responsive, and the owners are very welcoming with their pre-visit emails and information about things to do in the area. The extensive DVD collection was an added bonus! I'd say the only issue we had was that there were no parking spots left a couple of evenings that we returned late from dinner out. We had to park outside the gate at the spa/tennis center, and we got a warning from the "police" saying they'd tow us the next time we parked there overnight.

This was a beautiful property, ideally located and thoughtfully stocked with anything we might need.

Review by Vicky S.
Dec.23/17-Jan.7/18 - The home was beautifully decorated. The grounds were tropical and meticulously maintained. We used the pool area daily as it was a great place to relax on a down day and a perfect way to recoup after a busy day. The home was thoughtfully stocked with everything a traveller might need. It was very clean when we arrived and the check-in process was easy and seamless. The community in which the home is located is quiet, respectful, safe and well serviced. Grocery shopping near-by. Between Costco and Foodland Mauna Lani, we were able to do all of our required grocery shopping with ease. In the two weeks we enjoyed this home, we ate out only twice so the well equipped kitchen was appreciated and used a lot. We especially enjoyed the opportunity to use the grill on the lanai. Quiet mornings on the lanai, enjoying great Kona coffee, listening to the abundant bird song. This is just one great memory. Throw in movie nights with the kids, sunny days by the pool, hiking, black sand beaches (x2), Beach Club, Hapuna Beach, and a full day of volcano hiking, this was a great vacation. Thanks to the Ellison’s for a memorable family vacation.

Everything about it is perfect!

Review by Samantha J.
This is the 3rd time we have stayed in the Palm Villas. Twice before we stayed in larger h-4 unit, this time we had a smaller group so we opted to stay in this unit which fit our group of 5 perfectly. This condo is stocked well for home cooked meals. The location is perfect as it is in walking distance to the beach and to the restaurants. There is even the tiniest bit of ocean view you get from the balcony, but besides that the view is still great, overlooking the lava tubes with no other condos behind you. The beach club is our absolute favorite, and we don’t venture far anywhere else most days because we happen to feel like it’s just the best place in the whole world! Arther just so happened to be staying in another condo at the same time we were there, and was very nice to check in with us and ask if everything was going well. Arthur and his team really do a great job from start to finish with everything and we appreciate how easy and streamlined the entire process is. We love this condo and will be back soon! Mahalo!!

Our favorite slice of paradise!

Review by Richard G.
We’ve stayed in H-4 twice and now H-23 twice. These are both great units, well maintained, well equipped, and perfectly located. It’s an easy walk to the Mauna Lani shops, the beach club, or Canoe restaurant. You can even walk along the beach to get to Brown’s restaurant at the Fairmont Orchid. When it is just the two of us, H-23 works great for us. It’s an upstairs, more private unit with a peek of the ocean from the lanai or the living room. The barbecue on the lanai is ideal for cooking either steaks or fish which you can purchase right from the local market. We’ll keep coming back here as long as we can!

Wonderful vacation

Review by Paulette L.
We spent 13 nights in this spacious, clean condo. We loved the location as it was close to great beaches, grocery stores, walking trails and restaurants. The condo had everything we needed including snorkelling gear, umbrellas, chairs and coolers. The kitchen is well-equipped and we were easily able to cook many great dinners. We enjoyed sitting out on the deck each evening watching the sunset. Palm Villas is a quiet complex with beautiful landscaping. The owner was excellent to deal with from start to finish. We hope to return again soon!

Beautiful condo in fabulous location

Review by Suzi W.
We spent a great week staying in this gorgeous condo. It was so clean, spacious and well equipped. Everything was in good working order and of a high quality. The location was excellent, very close to a beautiful beach with some really good snorkeling. The pool and hot tub were near to the condo and the grounds surrounding the condo were superbly manicured with stunning flora.

Great Vacation Rental!

Review by Philip
We rented Unit H-23 for the month of April and thoroughly enjoyed our stay. Easy to arrange booking details with the owner and his manager. We loved everything about this condo. Palm Villas is in a quiet corner of the Mauna Lani Resort area but close to shopping and good restaurants. Nice pool and hot tub in the common area. The condo itself is very well decorated and comfortable. The kitchen is well-equipped and we cooked numerous meals from goodies bought at island fish and meat stores, farmers markets, etc. Access to the Mauna Lani beach club is included with the rental. We enjoyed some of the best snorkeling on the island off the club's beach, and also access to paddle board rentals, Napua restaurant, etc. The condo comes stocked with plenty of beach equipment. Besides the usual chairs and coolers and boogie boards, the owner even supplies full snorkeling equipment in various sizes. Also, Mauna Lani is quite close to our other favorite beaches at Wailea Bay and at the Mauna Kea. JT Alexander, the on-island manager, was very helpful and accessible the couple times we needed to contact her with questions. We definitely recommend this particular condo and staying in the Mauna Lani area.

Wonderful place, awesome vacation

Review by Elena L.
The three of us stayed for 10 days in Dec 2016. From booking to arrival to check out the process was smooth, owner and property manager were very responsive and gracious. The place itself is great, can easily accommodate 6 or more people so for the three of us it was very spacious and felt very relaxing. The villa is very well equipped, down to spice rack, paper towels and dish/laundry detergents. Tons of beach towels, snorkeling gear in different sizes cleaned and labelled, pretty good grill on the balcony, convection microwave... I felt that owners were very thoughtful and attentive in decorating and equipping the place. Location is great: 3 minutes drive from the gated beach with a pretty decent restaurant, bathrooms, changing rooms and cabanas, plenty of lounge chairs and helpful life guards. Walking distance to a outdoors mall with tons of shops, restaurants and a grocery store. We'll definitely want to come back! Thank you, Arthur!

Review by Micahel O.
We stayed in H-23 -- our 2nd time in as many years! -- again this year, for our two week Big Island vacation. And again, we loved it. We love the Mauna Lani resort (less crowded, adult oriented, lots of beach, away from the VOG of Kona), loved the Palm Villas mini-community (gated, quiet swimming pool, impeccably landscaped, quiet, walking distance to beaches, hotels, shops), loved the H-23 condo (clean, well-equipped, quiet, nice view of refuge, beautifully furnished). It was all great. And perfect weather every day sure didn't hurt! Did lots of exploring of the island this time and it was great to return to this beautiful home-away-from-home each day! Thanks so much! Mike and Judy (Bend, Oregon)

Condo was very beautiful, with comfortable furnishings and an open, inviting feel. Very clean throughout. We particularly appreciated the extensive array of beach equipment, as well as the owner's notebook with directions, restaurant suggestions, etc. Complex itself was quiet and well maintained. Very pleasant pool set in a natural environment. Owners and their staff were wonderful to work with. Hope we get a chance to work with them again!

Beautiful Property!

Review by Krista B.
This property is exactly as explained on the website! Beautiful and so well decorated and maintained. The location is perfect- so close to the pool, and just steps away from the walkway to the beach! Wonderfully well equipped with everything you need for your vacation away from home! I have not ever stayed at a property before where the condo provides everything you need for the beach (chairs, snorkeling gear, coolers, umbrellas, beach towels, etc.) It made all the difference! Also, another first was how well the directions for staying at the property were so well laid out on an app for your phone, and also in a binder on the cabinet. Any question I had from operating the coffee maker, to directions to the beach, were available at the touch of my fingers on this amazing app on my phone! That was amazing ! This property owner definitely exhibits the "Wow" factor for their guests! We experienced the best snorkeling right there on the property! Such a beautiful resort! You will not go wrong by staying here!

Great Mauna Lani Home

Review by Steve G.
We were searching for a vacation home in Mauna Lani for two 50+ year olds and one daughter for one week and daughter and son in law for the other week. This rental was really perfect. We stayed for two weeks and loved every single day. We have stayed in other homes in the Mauna Lani complex and this one blows them out of the water. H-23 was clean and tidy. The furnishings were really comfortable. For some reason, most rentals have uncomfortable sofas, stiff chairs and beat up beds. Not this one! The sofa was like being at home. The dining area was nice and the beds were great with nice linens to boot. Tons of bath and beach towels. The kitchen was perfect with newer appliances. There were spices, grinders, knives etc. Everything you need to prepare a meal. The bathrooms were set up nice and they even left us some lotions and shampoos. Nice touch! There is a storage area with some beach toys but some of them have seen better days. The boogie boards and noodles were waterlogged and some of the snorkel masks were broken. But that is how beach stuff gets! We appreciated the effort and I am sure the owner replaces things on a regular basis. The complex is very nice, gated and upscale. Very quiet. I went to the beautiful pool and it was empty every single time. I will return to this rental and have recommended it already to quite a few folks. Additionally, contact with the owners and their assistant always prompt, professional and most friendly! They were very easy to get hold of and returned my damage deposit in record time.

Perfect Vacation Location

Review by Crystal S.
The unit is beautiful - very clean and well-maintained and exactly as pictured on the website. The furnishings are comfy and neutral and the unit is very spacious. It had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. We especially enjoyed the view from the beautiful lanai....and the great BBQ. One of the few units in the Palm Villas where you can see the sunset in January. The grounds themselves are lovely. The uncrowded pool area is a nice second choice to the beautiful beach. The complex is within an easy and pleasant 15-minute stroll of the beach club, through the amazing ancient fish ponds. The Shops at Mauna Lani are also a very walkable 10 minutes from the complex. The beach club was fantastic and perfect for lazy days on the beach...or snorkeling. The property owner and the property manager were both very responsive and easy to work with.

Mauna Lani Experience Enjoyed

Review by Tom W.
Lovely property, accomodations as described on-line. Very organized, everything labled and numbered. instruction book very complete although there was some confusion about local contact person. Beach area at beach club fairly crowded most days but pool almost private it seems. Walk to pool after dark, need flashlight which was provided because path lights not working. Overall had a wonderful time, everyting worked (TV remote in living room a little complicated). Lanai was fun to use. Would recommend to a friend.

Absolutely Fantastic Vacation Home!

Review by Michael O.
The Ellisons, owners of these properties, have a website which describes and promotes their three Palm Villa condos. They make three key points about H-23, the condo we stayed in for 10 days in early January, 2016: That the Mauna Lani Resort, the Palm Villa condominiums, and their H-23 condo, collectively represent the best choice for vacationing on the Big Island of Hawaii. After staying there, we could not agree more! While not new to the Hawaiian Islands, this was our first visit to the Big Island, and we came away absolutely convinced it would henceforth be "our" special island... The Kohala Coast is the driest/sunniest part of the Big Island, the Mauna Lani Resort property (adjacent to and North of the Waikoloa Resort) is much quieter and more "adult" oriented (fewer gimmicks, less grandiose), the Palm Villa condominiums are -- we think -- the perfect choice from the many available in the resort, and the H-23 condo we stayed in the quietest and best furnished we've ever experienced! We loved the resort: easy walks to beach and shops, beautiful hotels and restaurants for romantic dinners, absolutely flawless landscaping and gorgeous golf courses. We loved the gated Palm Villa condominium complex: small, impeccably landscaped, quiet and away from road noise, beautiful, uncrowded absolutely perfect escape from the chaos of normal life... And finally, H-23: quiet, beautifully appointed and decorated (including beach toys and equipment), spotlessly clean, and big enough to accommodate visitors from the mainland. And the Ellisons are truly representative of the best of the HomeAway concept: great communicators, wonderfully detailed instructions for using the condo's amenities, and genuinely interested in ensuring that our visit was one for the memory books! It was. We'll be back every year. Wow! Mike & Judy (Bend, Oregon)

Review by Kim H.
This place was awesome!!! We stayed here with our 3 teenage kids. There was more than enough room for us all! It was a quiet place so enjoyed the Lanai every morning with our cup of KONA coffee. The house had EVERYTHING we needed for our stay. Thanks for the most memorable vacation our family has had in a very long time!!! We would definitely recommend this house and would return in a heartbeat! Thanks!!!

Great property in a terrific location

Review by Tom H.
This is a wonderful condo, and the pictures and description are accurate. It's beautifully decorated and equipped with everything you might want. A/C was a real plus during a very warm, humid, week. The beach Club is a terrific amenity, and the walk there is a very interesting short hike. The resort is centrally located, with easy highway access to all parts of the island. The Mauna Lani shopping center .was very convenient for groceries. Price was right, and we'd gladly return.

A relaxing weekend!

Review by Sam
This was an excellent place to stay to get away from the day to day bothers and business. We enjoyed a/c, pool, and took a run to the petroglyph park which was really awesome! We cooked and enjoyed the facilities. A real great condo and the communication with the owners was excellent and easy. I highly recommend this place!

This condo helped make this our best family vacation!

Review by Jerry Garcia
The condo worked out great for us - two adults and two kids, ages 12 and 14. It had everything we needed when we arrived. The grounds are well maintained and the pool is spectacular. We spent several early mornings beginning our day by walking to and from the beach. Later, we would drive over to the Beach Club (a few minutes drive) with all the snorkel and boogie boards from the condo in the back of our rental car. The Beach Club is amazing - a really great beach, with amazing snorkeling just a few feet offshore. We snorkeled here several times. The condo is centrally located to other parts of the island - around 30 minutes in any direction will get you to Hawi in the north of the island, to Waimea or to Kona. We also spent a day and drove to both the volcano and to Hilo. At the end of our days we always looked forward to coming back to this clean, well decorated and quiet unit. Towards the end of our stay we even got into the habit after these long days of sightseeing by letting the kids hang at the pool while Mom and Dad headed out for a Mai Tai! The owners did a great job of communicating with us on the reservation process, as well as when our damage deposit would be returned. I would highly recommend this unit to anyone.

Awesome condo!

Review by Marissa M.
This condo was amazing!!! We were expecting that like most places, the pictures would look better than it actually was. But we were pleasantly surprised to find that the place was even better than advertised in the pictures! Staying in a condo was so much more comfortable than a hotel. This condo was extremely spacious. We were only two people but you could easily fit four adults plus two or three children in the unit without feeling crowded. We will never go back to hotels for vacations! The kitchen was nicely stocked with all the little things you might not remember to buy at the grocery store such as spices, oil, sugar, syrup, etc. The appliances and kitchen utensils were of very high quality and made it easy to cook meals. The condo was nicely furnished and well stocked with beach towels, snorkel gear, and other beach toys. Everything was in good working order and the place was extremely clean. I'm a total germ-a-phobe and neat freak and this was one of the few places that met my standards! The condo is in the Mauna Lani complex which has very beautiful grounds and was extremely quiet and relaxing. It was conveniently located close to shopping and many beaches along the Kohala coast. There is a large lanai off the condo with a large gas grill and we enjoyed eating our meals outside. The owners, Karen and Arthur, happened to be staying in one of their other units next door and were very welcoming and friendly. It was very easy to make the reservation and Arthur and his assistant responded to emails very quickly. They also had a very useful notebook in the condo explaining where to find groceries, recommended restaurants, amenities available in the complex, and condo rules. This was an amazing and comfortable place to stay and we would definitely come back in the future!

Review by Lorie T.
PERFECT! This is a beautiful condo within a small, gated complex located in an idyllic, serene location yet convenient to restaurants, shops and a grocery store. We absolutely loved it here! It was well maintained, spacious and very clean. Everything was top-notch …. gourmet kitchen, beautifully furnished living and dining area, loft, two bathrooms, and two bedrooms with very comfortable beds. The master bathroom was gorgeous and had a large shower with pebble tile flooring which felt great on the feet. The garage contained snorkel gear, beach chairs, coolers, anything and everything you may need. After our fun filled Big Island adventures everyday, we enjoyed spending the evening on the lanai which overlooked a historic preserve. Soooo peaceful and relaxing! The paved path to the beach club through the preserve and ancient fish ponds was a pleasant walk and also connected with the Shoreline Trail, fantastic for walks and/or runs as it passes through several lovely beaches. The tropical grounds were impeccably landscaped and lush, with a wonderful lava rock pool and hot tub area which was very quiet and relaxing. The reservation process went smoothly, and the owner was very informative and helpful. We hope to return for another amazing vacation on the Big Island and would definitely stay here again. Mahalo!

Amazing stay at the Palm Villas

Review by L W.
Our experience at the Palm Villas was wonderful. The condo is obviously well cared for and very well stocked with everything from kitchen utensils to beach supplies and DVDs. Booking was easy and accommodating. Our condo was beautifully furnished and very clean. We loved the convenience of the BBQ on the lanai. The condo complex and pool area was also very quiet and well kept with nice landscaping. The Mauna Lani Resort, as well as the beach club, made this stay extra special. We enjoyed a couple of activities at the Shops at Mauna Lani (the free Polynesian show was impressive), snorkelling at the Beach Club, and walking around the ancient fish ponds (especially beautiful at sunset). Although we found the walk to the beach a little long if we were carrying beach gear, it was an easy 5 minute drive to the beach club. We would love to come back .

Terrific location and beautiful condo

Review by Richard S.
We enjoyed our stay in the Palm Villas at the Mani Lani Resort for two weeks in March, 2015. The location was new to us and we enjoyed exploring the many resort walking trails and the Beach Club. The Napua restaurant at the Beach Club was outstanding and the setting is perfect. The snorkeling at the Beach Club was surprisingly good and the beach provided a great location to enjoy the beautiful water of the Kohala Coast. We really enjoy this part of the Big Island of Hawaii and the condo’s location is close to several other beautiful beaches and the Waimea highlands. The farmer’s markets in Waimea are outstanding and the condo's kitchen is well equipped to take advantage of the fresh produce and seafood purchased at the Kawahae Harbor. From the resort property we could see the snow topped peaks of both Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea mountains. The unit is very nicely decorated and the beds are comfortable. We had more than enough room to spread out. The owners also provided lots of picnic, snorkeling, and boogie board equipment. The rental agent was also readily available when we had one question about the washing machine. We’d definitely stay here again and recommend it to others.

Comfortable Luxury

Review by Rhonda D.
This was the perfect condo for us. The view is unobstructed and the layout is perfect for two couples, but I can see how it would also suit people with children for sure. The pool area is very nice, there is a small gym as well or you can join the Mauna Lani Fitness Centre for your stay. The Beach Club is a 15 minute walk and the surroundings are beautifully kept. This property is tranquil, spacious, and a nice mix of comfort and luxury. Everyone was very happy. We will be back.

Well equipped and conveniently located.

Review by Bruce N.
We enjoyed our stay in the Palm Villas. The owners are well organized which made it easy to get settled and find our way around the island. The condo is well equipped so cooking at home was easy but their restaurant suggestions were helpful. The condo is well maintained but we did have a hot water problem so had cold showers the last 6 days of our stay.

Review by Amanda G.
The H23 Palm Villas condo was exactly what it was listed to be and much more. Upon first impression, the size, cleanliness, and decor were exceptional. Once we got settled in, we were very impressed by the detail in the amenities such as the towels (nice quality, size, and number), closet size, incredible kitchen and lanai with grill. The owners even provided additional goodies which went above and beyond our expectations. We were supplied with some "basics" to keep us from immediately having to go to the grocery store, as well as some very helpful information to get us familiar with the island (laminated maps, Big Island book, etc.). Another wonderful surprise was the provision of necessary beach items within the condo and the storage area including: beach towels, chairs, mats, umbrella, even snorkel gear for our whole group! I also appreciated the access to a washer and dryer within the home and the provision of soap. What a help! My favorite things about the accommodation were the bed (size and comfort) in the master bedroom and the provision of snorkel gear. The furnishings were of very high quality (though, candidly, we did not spend a ton of time inside). The kitchen was very well equipped. I was the only one of our group of four to use the Palm Villas pool area, but I thought it was beautiful, and it was never crowded or noisy at all. It was always very clean and well maintained, and I thought the incorporated lava rock was beautiful. We all enjoyed the local beach, which was very convenient to us, as well as the beach side cafe/bar. The location of the home was perfect, which we appreciated much more after having driven around the entire island! Everything within the home was most definitely clean, and everything appeared to be in working order. The only thing I would recommend would be to add an extra blanket somewhere for chilly nights, though it could have been somewhere that I just did not see. All in all, our group had an amazing time and thoroughly enjoyed our stay at Palm Villas!

Perfect Location - Great Stay w Teens

Review by Tammy T.
We just returned from the most relaxing and fun vacation to Kona. Having been to the Big Island twice before I did a lot of research, knowing I wanted to stay at a condo with access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club - the best beach on the island. My communication with the owners was prompt, courteous and very detailed in the information provided. I was so impressed with the owners that I booked the Palm Villas. Location - The gated Palm Villas is close to the Shops @ Mauna Lani, dining, grocery store and alike. The spa is right across the street and it is a 20 minute walk (bring water) or 5 minute drive to the private beach club where covered cabanas for two, nice lounge chairs and a nightly groomed beach await. Truly spectacular way to spend your days. Pool | Hot Tub - There is also a private pool and hot tub for the guests which was almost always empty. My 3 teens played in it nightly (closes at 8 for kids and 9 for adults). It is surrounded by lush gardens and blends in nicely to the hawaiian landscaping. Clean. Perfect temp. Avg 4' deep. Our Unit - We chose a top floor unit with a loft and outside bbq | lanai. We had a peak-a-boo view of the water and great sunsets from the lanai and were able to save money eating breakfast in and using the grill at night. The kitchen was fully furnished and my kids loved the toaster oven (ha). The wine cooler was handy and the washer dryer even had Tide detergent provided. Entertainment: With 3 teens the extensive movie library (~100 DVDs) was a nice way for the kids to decompress after the beach while adults sat on the lanai to watch the sunset. Dining on Site: We did eat at Napua at the Beach Club and it was our best meal on island. And you can't go wrong with a bar right on the beach with you. They even have ice water and plastic cups readily available if you come up from the beach and need a quick drink of water. Snorkeling on Site - Great snorkeling off the beach with lots of coral and fish to be seen. A turtle swam in every day, which was a treat. We rented stand-up paddle boards for the teens and they had a blast. You can dicker with the rental guys for reduced fees on hourly rentals so don't take the prices on the board. Showers are there, as is a lifeguard. Truly an amazing beach and why you should book at the Palm Villas. I highly recommend Palm Villas for an unforgettable vacation.

Perfect place to stay in beautiful Hawaii

Review by Leisa E.
We so enjoyed our family vacation to Hawaii and H23 Palm Villas was an excellent home away from home. We will definitely stay here again when we come back to Kona one day. The pool was beautiful and the condo was well equipped with everything we needed. Arthur and his wife have done a wonderful job thinking of everything a family needs on their vacation. Can't wait to visit again - awesome!! Thank you, The Sanderson Family

Another Great Stay at Palm Villas

Review by Marc A.
Fantastic experience. Working with the owner to secure this unit for our stay on the Big Island went very smoothly; everything we needed from snorkel gear to high chairs to a chef's kitchen was provided. This meant less time planning and worrying, more time enjoying the wonderful setting of this unit. We would have a daily stroll through the fish bonds to the beach club to enjoy the sunset, or just spend time looking out on the lava rocks and the ocean from the unit's lanai. Perfect if you want a no-stress rental process, access to amazing beaches (with snorkeling), and the ability to enjoy meals at home with your family. We can't wait to come back!
