This property is what you have dreamed Hawaii would be and is actually all about.
And this property is the answer to Three questions you are asking as you search the Web looking for the "right" place!
1st Question- Why should I vacation in the Mauna Lani Resort area vs. somewhere else in Hawaii?
Here are descriptive words often used of this prestigious, exclusive area and for good reasons: World Famous, Triple A, Four Diamond World Class Resort, Mauna Lani and Fairmont Orchid hotels, 14 separate restaurants, 3 pristine private beaches, miles of walking and jogging paths, 2 world renowned golf courses, sunset cruises, fishing, whale watching, scuba, and just about the best snorkeling in all of Hawaii.
2nd Question- Why choose the Palm Villas vs. somewhere else in Mauna Lani?
Locarion. Location. Location. The Palms is a privately gated, small group of new condominium homes - perfectly and centrally located in the heart of the resort. The Palm Villas are tucked away between the 18th Fairway of the North Course, the Historical Preservation Area, and the Mauna Lani Spa and Fitness Center. We have our own private waterfall pool, hot tub and fitness center, seconds from your doorstep, set among luscious tropical landscaping. And, you will have access to the pampering Mauna Lani Spa (across the driveway) with its fitness center, 6 tennis courts, lap pool, steam and sauna rooms and, of course, massages.
You are within a short, 10 minute leisurely walk through the fascinating royal fish lagoons and lava tubes in the historic preserve leading to the fabulous private beaches and your beach club, the Mauna Lani Beach Club. There you can enjoy lunch, snacks and drinks while lying in the provided, chaise lounge beach chairs. Or just enjoy the fabulous snorkeling, white sand beach, and calm waves. And you can enjoy watching the whales in season, or the large sea turtles coming ashore to bask in the same sun you are enjoying.
A short walk in another direction from your doorstep, brings you to the world class resort hotel with its shops and restaurants. Or a short walk in a different direction takes you to the brand new shopping complex containing the Tommy Bahamas store and restaurant, Ruth Chris Steak House and a wide variety of other boutiques, galleries, and an ice-cream shop. And this Island is the home of Kona coffee!
So, whether it's walking to your favorite activity, or throwing your clubs in the car or your cart, Location. Location. Location. -at the Palm Villas will make your vacation - ohhh so much better.
And in addition to Location, the Palm Villas offer elegant, luxurious comforts you want and will appreciate while being on vacation. There is nothing basic about our villas.
We have open spacious living areas, gourmet kitchens with designer cabinets, granite countertops throughout, stainless steel appliances. On the lanai there is a built-in, top of the line outdoor double wide gas grill, hood with fan and light and bar sink. All of this speaks of the comfort, pleasure and rest you will have in these units. You will walk in the door and say, Wow, with a smile on your face, knowing the next several days will be spent there.
3rd Question- Why should we stay in this particular unit in Building H at the Palm Villas vs. other Palm Villa units? What is unique about it?
First- It is the smallest of the four floor plans yet spacious for four adults do a stay of any length. Each bedroom has its own bath.
Second- As the owner, I am biased, but we specifically chose this location because we believe the H building location is the BEST in the complex. Here is why. It is in the very rear of the complex, away from any possible pool noise, and nestled against the Golf course. And since it is at the very end of the driveway, it gets no road noise. It is secluded, very safe and very quiet.
Third- After it was finished, we went way beyond the ordinary to have this place professionally decorated and custom painted with the highest quality furniture, furnishings and art from Tommy Bahamas and others so that you will feel pampered and know that you are not in "just a rental". You will experience the difference from the moment you walk through the door to when you slip in the amazingly comfortable beds at night. You see, this is where we vacation, and that is how we want to feel when we are in Hawaii.
Fourth- This is a ground level unit that faces the historic preservation area, the royal fish ponds and the ocean. Therefore at night, the cool breeze comes through screen door and windows and you can hear the soft crash of the waves on the beach.
You can eat dinner outside at night on the lanai and face amazing sunsets or watch seasonal fireworks from both resort hotels over the ocean. Or just sit in the comfortable chairs on the lanai with your morning coffee or evening glass of wine looking over the incredible view. It is Hawaii, and you are on vacation. It does not get any better than this.
Finally- From the early construction days to even now weekly, we have prayed and asked our Heavenly Father to place blessings of peace and rest on all the people, of all kinds and nations who rest in this house. Many have remarked on how they experienced the peace of this house.
We are a great value when you add all this up. Plus . Free unlimited phone calls to the US mainland! Check out the pictures and give me a call or email.
