Overview

About the property

3 bedroom, 3 bathroom with Hotel Amenity Package

Welcome to Wai‘ula‘ula at Mauna Kea---a private, gated community on the Hapuna Golf Course.

Relax in our 3-bedroom, 3-bathroom, 2,100 sqft. condominium and enjoy the many upgrades we’ve added to our home, including hardwood floors, new bedroom carpeting, an updated outdoor kitchen, and more.

As original owners, we selected our 1st floor condo during Wai’ula’ula’s pre-build phase for its 650 sqft. wrap-around lanai, its preferred orientation during Kohala’s windiest days, and its proximity to the community’s recreation center. Our lanai’s northwestern exposure offers views of the ocean, the Kohala coast and, on clear days, the magnificence of Maui’s Haleakala across the channel.

We’ve spared little expense furnishing our home for family and friends, and trust that it will offer you the warmest aloha during your stay on the Big Island. Our unit offers: kitchen bar stools; an indoor dining table; two master suites with king size beds, dual sink bathrooms with a tub and walk-in shower; internet access; multiple 60”+ web-based HDTVs; Polynesian-inspired furnishings, a third bedroom with twin beds and a futon; a Bluetooth sound bar; two Tropitone outdoor tables/chairs on our lanai; an outdoor kitchen with sink, six-burner Weber Summit grill and refrigerator; and finally a wide variety of pool/beach extras, including towels, toys, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, etc. We also ensure that our kitchen and laundry are equipped with virtually every necessity to accommodate you during your stay.

As one of the closest units to the community recreation center, you are steps away from a saline infinity pool, hot tub, outdoor showers, indoor lounge with HDTV, BBQ pavilion, toddler’s pool and fitness center. You’re also just a short drive from two of Hawaii's most beautiful white sand beaches at the Hapuna Prince and Mauna Kea resorts.

Should you wish to participate in the resorts’ (Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince) Amenity Package, a nominal activation & card fee offers you charging privileges, as well as access to each resort’s fitness center, pool, beach towels, chaises and umbrellas. This Amenity Package also includes preferential resort parking and discounted rates for golf and tennis.

Days pass quickly with: sunrise and Kona coffee; a workout at the gym; a jog to either of the resorts; aerobic/yoga classes; breakfast on our griddle; paddle boarding; snorkeling; swimming; boogie boarding; golf; tennis; lounging on the beach; lunch at Mauna Kea’s Hau Tree beach restaurant; reading on our lanai; exploring the island; drinks, music, and sunsets at Mauna Kea’s Copper Terrace; grilling on our BBQ; dinner on our lanai; a movie on our 65” HDTV; and star gazing into an amazing night sky.

Should you have an interest in our home, we would enjoy setting the stage for you to build your own lasting memories with family and friends at the Mauna Kea!

About Erika Huyck

We've been coming to The Big Island for over 10 years and love the tranquility and peacefulness that the Hawaiian Islands offer.

Erika Huyck purchased this condo in 2005

Why Erika Huyck chose Kamuela

If you're a parent or simply traveling with another couple, the condos at Wai'ula'ula offer the space, privacy, kitchen, and laundry that aren't offered through a hotel room at either of the resorts.

What makes this condo unique

We specifically selected our 1st floor condo for its practical comfort, the expanse of its wrap-around lanai, surrounding grass, northern orientation which protects against Kohala's occasional trade winds, and its proximity to the community's recreation center. We have also personalized our unit with a variety of upgrades, including: hard wood floors, upgraded carpeting in the bedrooms, unique Polynesian-style furniture, a completely remodeled outdoor kitchen, and very inviting audio/visual equipment.

Outstanding Mauna Kea area condo

  • 5 of 5

Spacious and well equipped 3 bedroom condo. Very comfortable for a large family or 3 couples. Outstanding internet and TV with Netflix and Amazon prime. Be sure to take the amenity package which allows access to both the Mauna Kea and Hapuna Prince hotel properties including fitness, pools and great beaches.

Amazing home-away-from-home !

  • 5 of 5

Firstly, Erika was superb to deal with. All communications were speedily answered and she was always knowledgeable and friendly. Our impression was that she really cared about our stay and wanted our family to enjoy our holiday.

The house was 5 stars. It is incredibly spacious, with 3 bathrooms to match the 3 large bedrooms, and beautifully decorated. The beds were super comfy too. Everything you needed for a comfortable stay was at your disposal with a very well equipped kitchen and full laundry plus wifi.

The home’s location within Wai’ula’ula is perfect . Very close to the amenity centre but far enough away to be very private and quiet. The amenity centre itself was amazing - our family could have quite easily hung out here for our entire stay!

I was at a conference at Hapuna Prince which is a brisk 25mins down the hill - quite doable for a 7 am start but would imagine coming back in the heat would be a bit much ( hence I got a ride home each day) . Our stay also came with the option to get signing rights at both the Hapuna Prince and Mauna Kea. It’s worth it just to get access to the beach at Mauna Kea as this is such a glorious spot.

I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending this property to friends or colleagues.

Thank you Erika!

Dream Vacation - wonderful location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo is conveniently located and beautifully maintained. We used this condo as "our base" to explore the entire island.The residential guest privileges allowed at the Mauno Kea and the Hapuna Beach resorts was such a bonus so I would recommend that you spend the extra charge to enjoy the unparalleled facilities during your stay. Not only did we enjoy the pool and exercise room (literally steps from this condo), but we had access to the best area resorts during our stay. The kitchen is well-stocked and the outdoor grill was perfect for our family as we enjoy cooking. The advanced information provided by the homeowner was accurate and helpful in making our trip the perfect family vacation. Driving to nearly farmer's markets, beaches, hiking, and restaurants was a snap. The open concept and roomy living spaces were perfect for our family. The attention to detail was exceptional. We spent our first week at this condo and then spent three more days on the Hilo side at a hotel - to experience both sides of the island. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone travel to the Big Island!

Spectacular Property in a Beautiful Location

  • 5 of 5

We are a family with three adult children and we just spent the holidays in this spectacular condo. It is incredibly well located and we couldn't have enjoyed our stay any more than we did. The beds are extremely comfortable, there is plenty of room for all to relax and the bathrooms are spacious and well stocked. We spent most of our time on the lanai, relaxing in the fresh air, enjoying the view, grilling on the fabulous Weber grill and eating or playing cards at the large table. The kitchen has top of the line appliances which made cooking easy. We went out for dinner the first 3 nights and then decided we enjoyed cooking in the condo and eating the fresh seafood and beef back at the condo more. It is an easy drive to Waimea for the freshest beef or to Kawaihae for the freshest fish. It's all amazingly good.

Access to the beaches at the Mauna Kea Resort and Hapuna Beach are amazing advantages. The beaches are gorgeous and the fact that you can use the resort's parking, lounge chairs and towels makes life so easy. This condo is well located for two of the best beaches on the island, shopping and sightseeing. Everything you need is convenient.

And to top it all off, the owner is a joy to deal with. She is very responsive and provides all the information and items you require. We would definitely stay here again.
