Island Dreams Villa: location, quiet, comfort
|Per night||$250 - $550|
|Per week||$1,750 - $3,850|
Our Mauna Lani home is ideal for families with children. There is plenty of space and beds for up 6 people, but more importantly, we picked the location and resort that caters best to kids, real kids and the young at heart! There are numerous small, quiet beaches sheltered from the wind between the Mauna Lani beaches and the Fairmont Orchid Beaches. Towels, Food, and Drinks as well as rest rooms and fresh water showers are available at the beaches and make your time in the sun, sand and surf more enjoyable. If you want to pack your own goodies to the beach we have multiple sizes of coolers and you're welcome to take these to the beach and poolside. The variety of small bays and open water allow for variety for all ages. Some of the beaches are well protected from any kind of surf and are excellent for even small toddlers and babies. Other spots along the resort's oceanfront offer boogie boarding waves and excellent snorkeling.
Eat dinner with your feet in the sand at the while your children watch the turtles sun themselves on the beach nearby or let the kiddos run and play in the palm tree grove while you sit, relax, and enjoy an appetizer. Kids are welcome and it is an elegant yet relaxed atmosphere that is only a short walk from your Fairway Villa at the Mauna Lani Resort.
We picked the best resort, with the best beaches, and a prime location
within that resort, to make the Island Dreams Villa an ideal vacation
rental getaway. The only problem is... you won't want to leave!
The service is impeccable at the Fairmont Orchid and Mauna Lani and one always feels like a cherished friend.

The private beach was the best for comfort and snorkeling. I'm sure there could be better places to snorkel, but we didn't find any. Great beaches close to the north and to the south of here. When we weren't at the beach, the kids played in the pool.

This was our first trip to the Big Island and we had a magnificent time! The condo and the amenities were fabulous, and we were relaxed and comfortable in our setting. We played golf at the resort, took advantage of the beach club access and restaurant, walked the beautiful grounds, visited the lovely swimming pool and hot tub on several occasions, toured the hotels in the area, bar-b-qued, and relaxed. It was our best vacation ever, and we can't wait to return!

We absolutely loved all the conveniences and location of the villa. The bikes, beach equipment, and resort amenities kept us entertained. We loved the spacious home and the beautiful furnishings. We enjoyed the Beach Club and having the pool and hot tub to ourselves. Wifi for my daughter, DVD's, books and toys for my granddaughter, and the beautiful lanai in a garden setting were also extras that we loved. Appreciated all the detailed communication and the assigned tenant-representative who called in a few times to check up on us. Perfect vacation! We would definitely stay here again!

Our group consisted of 2 familes (4 kids and 4 adults). The villa was everything we were hoping for. It was clean, had everything you would need and more, beach toys, bikes, bath and beach towels to name a few. We enjoyed every meal outside on the lanai, unless we were having a picnic on the beach. Location is great, although it is easiest if you drive to the beaches, which was never a problem for us. Many options for beaches close by, giving you the chance to snorkel in the morning and boogie board in the afternoon.
Julie and her family thought of everything to make our stay so comfortable. The villa is beautifully decorated and so accomodating for a large family. We had 6 kids plus 4 adults and all had plenty of room. We enjoyed the lagoons at both the Fairmont and Mauni Lani. The kids got such a kick out of the sea turtles and pufferfish swimming beside them. Wish we had more time to explore the island and go to summit of Mauna Kea. We did visit Kona Earth which was a small coffe operation which had us picking the beans right off the bush - very educational. We would definite recomment this villa and area to tour the Big Island. It especially meets the needs for families - lots of toys, snorkel and boogie board gear, baby stuff. Thanks for making it a great stay. The Liges from the Outer Banks of North Carolina

We have stayed in a variety of rental homes for our
vacations, and this one is definitely one of the best.
The quiet locations was wonderful- a feature that is
extremely important to me. A rental home is so
much more relaxing than a hotel room. Although
we ate dinner out almost every night, having a meal
on your own is also a great option. The home itself
was incredibly clean and well organized. The
binder was a dream resource. Even though I have
been to the Big Island twice before, I found the
suggestions very helpful, especially for snorkelling.
The Big Island has so much to offer. We too spent a
day on the Hilo side. After all of our hiking &
snorkelling, we thoroughly enjoyed getting one of
those cabanas at the Fairmont Orchid for our last
day. Well worth the money for such a plush setup.

The condo was fantastic. The owners, Julie and Tyler, have truly thought of everything to make for a comfortable, luxurious stay. We love to cook, so we were so happy to see that the kitchen was well stocked with every appliance and gadget that we would need. In addition, Julie and Tyler keep baby items such as a crib and strollers and a high chair, which meant we didn't have to lug those things from home. We enjoyed the wireless internet, the bikes, the gas grill, the DVD's, the iPod player, the convection oven, the washer and dryer, the beach towels, the beach toys. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation. We would recommend this place wholeheartedly to anyone. Also, the condo is spacious enough so that we all had plenty of space and never got on each other's nerves. One last note: the grounds of the complex were so quiet and peaceful. The pool was always relaxing. The exercise room was always available. No crowds to fight here. In contrast, on the day we went to the Hilton Waikoloa Village for our little girl to swim with the dolphins, we couldn't believe how hectic and noisy and crowded it was. We were so happy to get back to our peaceful paradise. So many of those resorts are like zoos (We referred to the Hilton as the "Hell-ton"). This place was excellent. We look forward to returning.

Julie and Tyler have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They are also reachable by phone as is their house manager Lorraine who lives about 30 minutes away. We have stayed in many condos, apartments, hotel rooms bed and breakfasts etc in Europe(1/2 our family lives there) in the U.S., Canada and in Mexico. We have been to Hawaii countless times including the Big Island at least eight and we can tell you that all the comments from others are very true. My wife's 60th birthday was memorable because of the appointments, the size of this villa, the location,the proximity and access to two of the finest hotels on the Kohala Coast. Just a tip of running the gamut,from the beautiful views at the Mauna Lani Canoe House and eating the Kona Cold Lobster to Huggos On the Rocks for heavy apps, good Kona beer,a young crowd, and rocking entertainment and dancing. WOW your well thought out visitor's guide made our two weeks go by so fast. Thanks and we can't wait to get back. Sept-Oct 2007. Rob and Mimi
