We are Rick and Connie, live in Canada and have two teen age children. We love our Hawaii house and would be pleased to share it with you. After our 2013 visit to this community, in another villa, we knew we had to live here, where we felt so at home. In the spring of 2014 we were back in a villa across the street and purchased this villa which has one of the best views in the community.
Richard Stefankiewicz purchased this villa in 2014
Our home sits on a hill with a magnificent view of the ocean where we have seen whales playing and incredible sunsets. The villa offers every convenience, from a private outdoor shower to a kitchen equipped for a gourmet chef and glass doors that disappear into the walls to bring the outdoors in.
The Amenity Membership we purchased affords our guests access to the adjacent award winning Mauna Kea and Hapuna Resorts with their two World Ranked golf courses, tennis club, restaurants and the best beaches in Hawaii. You can share our membership, while you stay with us, for $65 a day, for the villa, regardless of the number of occupants staying in the villa.
We rented this beautiful house as a place to visit with our daughter in nearby boarding school. Such a better place to enjoy the beauty of Hawaii than getting overpriced adjoining rooms in a hotel. We especially enjoyed living with all the sliding glass doors and windows open hearing the trees blowing in the wind and the luscious raindrops on the patio. It is a perfect indoor-outdoor living experience with a top-notch kitchen. All of the bedrooms are comfortable and furnished to the top level of excellence. It is a great community and having access to the local resorts for their beaches is just perfect. We walked several times down to the resorts for exercise. We preferred Mauna Kea's beach but Hapuna Prince was also great. When we had one small issue with the air conditioning on arrival, the management team was already handling it and saw it through expediently and without any hesitation. We were very pleased with the service, home and place. We expect to come back.
This is the type of home you would stay in if your friends owned it and let you vist them or use it. Besides the obvious of the location and the incredible views the home is fabulous in every way, gorgeous, comfortable, and stocked with everything imaginable. Our family is a huge fan of the Mauna Kea Resort and did not imagine ourselves hanging around the home much, but we did. I can't say enough good things about this home. Richard, thank you for sharing your home with us, and thank you for the ease in which we were able to rent it. Aloha!
From the moment you walk into this beautiful villa, you will feel right at home. It is very clean, spacious and has beautiful Hawaiian decor throughout. The gourmet kitchen is completely stocked with everything needed for cooking (including a gas top stove...rare for the Islands). There are enough dishes, wine glasses, and silverware to serve 2 large families and there is a really nice wine refrigerator. The living room area is very comfortable with a huge flat screen tv. The pocket doors make this villa a tropical getaway but what is nice is that you can also slide out screen doors and let the Hawaiian breeze flow into the living area. The patio has two distinct areas to it. In one area, you have the pool and jacuzzi (which we enjoyed every evening) while gazing at the spectacular golf and mountain views. The other area has a high end bbq, table and chairs and displays a beautiful ocean view where we watched the sunset every night. We cooked and ate at the villa almost every evening because honestly, you can't beat the view and the ambiance. The bedrooms were very well appointed with things you wouldn't expect in a regular vacation rental (like lots of nice hangers in each closet). The outdoor shower was awesome and offers complete privacy. The laundry room is equipped with everything you need to do laundry and the having a garage to keep the car out of the sun was great. The owner also has lots of boogie boards and snorkel equipment so no need to rent those. We paid the resort fee to use the Mauna Kea and Hapuna (We only used the Mauna Kea because it's beach is spectacular). This also gave us a discount on golf for both courses. Having access to parking and all the amenties of the Mauna Kea and Hapuna made the resort fee well worth the cost. I almost felt sorry for the guest of the hotel. Booking 2 rooms at the Mauna Kea cost almost as much as this villa and we got to ejoy all the same amenities they do AND have more space and privacy when we wanted it. The owner, Richard, was great to work with. Very responsive and willing to do whatever it takes to make your stay exceptional. This is an amazing villa that will provide memories to last a lifetime.
Had a great time loved. The property and on sight managers were extremely helpful. Dick Herzog
The home was beautiful and very spacious and very comfortably fit our family of 6. Everything was top of the line! The kitchen was very well equipped and the property was neat and very clean. We were greeted very friendly by Lisette upon our arrival and she helped us get settled and gave us some good dining suggestions. Thank you for letting us use your home for our vacation. Our only disappointment was that we had 2 medical emergencies during our stay and the Mauna Kea Beach Club would not allow us to cancel our beach club access. It would be best if this access was a per day charge, as additionally, when you are going on excursions, the $65 per day simply goes to waste. We only used it the first two days, but had to pay for all 7 days. This is not the property owners fault, as the Mauna Kea Beach Club is a separate company, but before deciding to purchase the beach club access for your trip, be certain you will be able to utilize it enough as the management for the beach club is not flexible. Again, not the home owner's fault and the home is beautiful and we would stay again!
This home was perfect for our group. The kitchen was huge and had everything we needed to make meals. It was a true gourmand's delight! The beds and pillows were the most comfortable I've ever slept in while traveling (and I have stayed in many villas and luxury hotels). Waking up refreshed to the views of Mauna Kea and the ocean was one of the highlights of the trip. My kids loved the pool and the adults loved the hot tub. We had every amenity we needed for play at the beach. Every aspect of the home was well thought out. We purchased the daily Mauna Kea amenity Package, which gave us towels, chairs, cabanas, and access to two of the best beaches on the Kohala coast. So close to Waimea and Kawaihae, and not far from Mana Lani. My husband competed in the Ironman 70.3 and this home was most convenient to all the festivities. Will stay in this home again. Thanks for sharing your home with us, Richard.
