    When Laurance S.Rockefeller opened the Mauna Kea Resort in 1965, it was a new level of luxury for its hotel guests and now the guests of residential homeowners. Times have changed! At that time, Trent Jones Sr. was challenged to build a course on lava bluffs, but met that challenge and was honored by his son, Trent Jones Jr. decades later with an update to his father's design. Later, Arnold Palmer and Ed Seay stepped up to the task by creating an 18-hole course at The Hapuna Prince Beach Hotel now known as the Westin Hapuna Beach Resort, a part of the Mauna Kea Resort.

    The two pristine beaches are really the crowing jewels of these recently remodeled and upgraded resorts, ranking among some of the top beaches of the world.

    Welcome to the Mauna Kea Resort!

    Enjoy this beautiful relaxing vacation home in the exclusive gated community of Moani Heights.  It is geared towards kids and family who are wanting to explore the Big Island and perhaps take advantage of purchasing resort access and amenities through the membership of the homeowner.

    This home offers a complete kitchen with updated cabinets, granite counter tops, appliances and working desk to page through a local recipe book.  With ocean views from the kitchen, living room, and dining area, the lanai doors open to casual seating, lounge chairs for bathing, a BBQ and rattan dining set all flanked by a huge pool and hot tub. Heated pool and hot tub available at a daily fee.

    This 3 bedroom, 3 bath home is situated on an acre providing a grand presence within the neighborhood. Each master king (2) offers a private full bathroom with shower, soaking tub, private toilet room and walk-in closet. Step outside through the lanai doors where you will have a private lounge area or a straight line to the massive hot tub.

    The 3rd queen bedroom has an adjoining shower bathroom, and overlooks the entrance courtyard lined with plumeria trees. All bedrooms and two bathrooms were recently updated with new flooring.

    The spacious media room with its own stand-alone air conditioning is where the fun will be, leaving the formal living room for those who want quiet while watching the spectacular sun rise and sun sets! The media room sleeps an additional 2 people and is a great place for the kids! High ceilings, tile floors, ceiling fans, and a large flat screen TV with cable is where everyone will want to be at the ...

    It was a beautiful home and ample space for four adults and two kids under 10 years. The views were breathtaking however, pool was not cleaned before we arrived. My family and I cleaned it ourselves on the first night. I liked the fact that the depth was safe for the little ones. The heating between hot tub and pool malfunctioned during the first two days. After some back and forth texting (lol many text messages assuring the manager we were following the instructions) , Donna herself came out to fix it with the handyman. The pool was fixed and cleaned. Bring kitchen supplies. Be sure to bring basic supplies ie sugar, coffee filters, citronella candles etc. I noticed that swim gear was available ie snorkel gear but make sure to clean them well and check they work. We got out to the beach and realized their snorkel masks needed to be replaced. Easy fix via renting equipment on the beach. Hapuna’s beach does not disappoint at all! Treat yourself to a cabana! Remember that when you rent this home an additional $165 per night will be charged for resort amenities automatic at the end of the stay, Irrespective if you use the resort amenities or not. Just be aware of that. I will say the resort amenities are stellar and we enjoyed ourselves. Overall, I think Donna tried her best with communicating with us but we could tell she was very busy. It was a nice stay and everyone enjoyed themselves for the most part. We will likely find another place next time because of communication issues, timeliness to fix house concerns, cleanliness, and resort fees.

    Donna was great to deal with as we had 7 fun filled days of beach, golf and greats eats. The house is laid out well as the 2 Masters bedrooms are on opposite sides of the house. Kitchen was stocked of everything as we went to the store in Waikoloa Village for 4 nights dinners. Went to Merrimans and Bamboo otherwise and Manta. Wonderful memory and we will return. Thanks Donna!

    Very comfortable property on pretty grounds. The house, pool, and grounds all looked better in person than in the pictures. I would stay again! Luke

    We have stayed at Mauna Kea many times. Several times at the hotel and twice at other homes/villas. This home is on the other side of the highway, away from the hotels and beach, so it is Not an easy walk to the beach. The home is nice, each bedroom has its own bath and the rooms are reasonably private at night. The house layout is good, the living room is a little small, but is right off the poll area, so it was fine for the 6 of us. If you had a bigger group with maybe small kids, there is a finished garage, turned into a large family room area. The pool is nice and pretty large for a private res., but not good for lap swimming. The views are ok, nothing to write home about, sort of peak a view. We stayed one week here with our adult children and their partners. The home worked out very well for the comings and goings of everyone and we could hang by the pool when all together.

    We loved staying here and hope to be back as soon as we can! Lovely house on a small hill with beautiful landscaping and views. We had a great time with the pool, as well as access to the Mauna Kea resort and its perfect beaches. Donna was very pleasant and responsive to communicate with.

    This place was amazing! Was fully stocked with EVERYTHING from cleaning supplies to laundry supplies, towels, pool and beach toys etc. There was nothing we had to run out and get, it was all there! House was clean and comfortable! Having two master suites was a huge bonus! Plenty of room for the 7 of us! A huge part of what made our stay so memorable was getting the access to the Mauna Kea Resort! Highly recommend getting that! It’s only a 5 minute drive from the house (20 minute walk). The resort looks brand new and has a great gym, pools and one of the best beaches I’ve ever seen! Our only issue was the hot tub was not working while we were there, but Donna (owner) has promised to make that right. I cannot wait to go back to this place! Amazing!!!

    We have stayed in many VRBO properties over the past 15 or so years and this is, hands down, our favorite. Everything about this house is perfect. Donna makes booking & check-in a breeze. We will be back! Mahalo for a wonderful week!
