We enjoyed two weeks at K1 and loved it. Well stocked everything - the owners thought of everything! We did temporary membership to sport/fitness centre and it was worth the hefty price. We loved the tennis (Gatorade and cold towels set up at each court). Our teenage son is a weightlifter and he had everything he needed. Islands is not on or near the beach but the sport facilities made it worthwhile and the private beach club is fab - you can rent paddle boards and there is a restaurant there too. The islands pool is incredibly peaceful because of the waterfall - and plenty of shade. Grounds extremely well maintained. I’d stay at the islands again.

We just returned yesterday from six nights at this beautiful property, unit A2 at the Islands at Mauna Lani. The main reason for four stars instead of five is the cost - $550/night (plus a substantial security deposit, which we expect to get back). There were just four of us (and it easily holds six). Since other reviews note that it’s a great value, it might be that I am underestimating the cost of a place to stay in August. If you can get this place for close to the $350/night shown in the VRBO rates section, it is well worth it. All the rooms are well-appointed, as are the outside areas. The grill worked well (although the electronic starter didn’t work). The kitchen is great, and it was full of spices - we did quite a bit of cooking. The coffee machine makes great coffee. There’s a large rice cooker. No complaints about the kitchen (although the knives aren’t too sharp). The pictures provided on VRBO show exactly what you can expect throughout the house. On the other hand, as noted in some reviews, you cannot hear (or see) the ocean from here. And while you can walk to places (The Shops are less than a mile away, as is the Mauna Lani hotel, and the Beach Club is a mile by foot), it was about 91F each day and we did very little walking. We did drive to the Shops fairly often, though, and to the Fairmont hotel at least once a day. The Shops has (among other things) a good Foodland store (the gourmet store referenced in another review), Tommy Bahamas and Ruth’s Chris. And the property is air conditioned, with separate Nest thermostats for each of the two floors. Given the outside temperature, this was critical! Donna was great, always replying within minutes of my sending a message. We had a few small problems with the property, but nothing that impacted our vacation. I’d recommend this property if you don’t need to be next to the ocean, if you need the space, and if the price suits you. We were very pleased with it.

We spend a week there with m 2 teenage daughters....had a great time. Explored the beautiful beaches, lots of great snorkeling, did an ATV ride, and just relaxed! Our favorite beach was Hapuna, 2nd favorite, Mauna Key (but limited parking here..we just got lucky! We also hiked to the Black Sand beaches which was beautiful. The place we stayed provided a garage full of toys...beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel, mask, and fins and a cooler which was all very useful!

Our family enjoyed staying here for a week. There were 3 couples who got to stay in the spacious master suites and 2 kids who set up camp in the living room with the sofa sleeper. Each master suite had its own bathroom with jacuzzi tub and each had their own lanai in addition to the main lanai downstairs.The kitchen was well-stocked with everything we needed. The Mauna Lani Beach Club was just a short walk on a trail that also happened to be the site of the Puakō Petroglyphs..bonus! The beach club is set on an idyllic little cove that's perfect for snorkeling which we did every day. The reef in the cove is filled with tropical fish and because there is a bit of sandy bottom before the reef begins, makes it a perfect shallow for kids to swim and play. There's also a great little restaurant & bar to grab frilly umbrella drinks at happy hour and super tasty poke. Adjacent to the beach club is a nice stroll through the kalahuipuaa fishing ponds. Our condo was steps away from the pool which had a fun rock grotto and waterfall. Water temp was perfect and made it a nice stop after the beach. We're not golfers, so when we weren't at the beach, we explored the rest of the island, saw the Thurston Lava Tunnels and went on snorkeling tours. See my review of Fair Wind Big Island Ocean Guides. There's a few great restaurants within walking distance in the small, upscale shopping center complete with a grocery. Tommy Bahama is fun for a Mai-tai, then get some really fantastic sushi at Monstera. The grocery has a wonderful variety of fresh fish to bring back and grill. Fantastic spot for a family getaway and can't wait to go back!
