Mauna Lani and Waikoloa Vacation Rentals Benefit From Kona Village Closure

Sunday, March 20th, 2011

Due to extensive damage from the Japanese tsunami, Kona Village decided to close for an extended period of time.  This has left many of their customers looking for a place to stay elsewhere on the Big Island of Hawaii.

“We are very sad to close Kona Village Resort for an extended period of time, but the damage to the property from this natural disaster is severe enough to render it inoperable,” said Patrick Fitzgerald, CEO of Hualalai Resort/Kona Village Resort. “We are fortunate that our guests and employees were evacuated safely. Our hearts are heavy with this decision’s impact on employees and loyal guests who have visited us over the years. Our thoughts also are with the people of Japan during this difficult time.”

Kona Village has offered full refunds to all of their guests that were planning to stay in 2011.  Due to the unique nature of Kona Village, many of their guests are repeat visitors every year.  For the first time many of the guests have had to find a new place to stay.  Many of them are looking to Kolea at Waikoloa Beach Resort and Mauna Lani Terrace, which are both beachfront vacation rental communities.  Rob Dalton of Waikoloa Vacation Rentals stated, “Within the last week we received five reservations from guests that were scheduled to stay at Kona Village.  All of them were bummed to not get to stay at Kona Village, but excited to try something new.”

It appears that a fair amount of guests that typically stay at Kona Village prefer vacation rentals to hotels.  Given that most guests of Kona Village come to the Big Island annually, not only will the closure have a positive impact on vacation rentals short term, but also long term as the guests look to return to Hawaii for their annual vacation.

We wish for a speedy recovery for Kona Village and will keep you informed as the repairs begin.

Christmas at Mauna Lani

Tuesday, December 21st, 2010

Within the Christmas season all the resorts on the Big Island try to make the resort and the hotels more festive.  None of them do it as well as the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel.  Every year I look forward to going to the hotel to see what they have to offer.

The lobby is filled with various Christmas trees decorated by classes at local schools as well as non profit organizations around the island.  You will also find the palms decorated with lights as well as beautiful poinsettias spread throughout the lobby.

If you vacation to Hawaii during the Christmas holidays I would highly recommend spending an evening dining at the CanoeHouse at Mauna Lani Bay and walking around enjoying the festive setting.

Mauna Lani Terrace offers some upscale vacation rental condos nearby.

Mauna Lani Terrace A204: Our Newest Addition

Saturday, July 18th, 2009

Over the course of the last few years, we have had the opportunity to manage two of the finest vacation rentals at the Mauna Lani Terrace, Mauna Lani Terrace J204 and Mauna Lani Terrace F201.  Guests that have stayed in either of those villas have thoroughly enjoyed them and have reserved them on several occassions. I had always been told that we had two of the three nicest vacation rentals at the Mauna Lani Terrace with Mauna Lani Terrace A204 being the other one.

Just recently we had the opportunity to add Mauna Lani Terrace A204 to our program and are very excited about that.  A204 is one of the few three bedroom penthouses at the Mauna Lani Terrace and offers spectacular ocean views from many areas of the villa.  The beaches of Mauna Lani Bay and the Mauna Lani Beach Club are just short walks away.  Mauna Lani Terrace A204 has been completely renoved and is furnished great for a vacation rental property.

Feel free to contact us at 808-987-4519 for more information on Mauna Lani Terrace A204 or any of our vacation rentals.
