Planning a first trip to the Big Island in June for our family with 11yo twin boys. We were hoping to find a place with easy beach access, a nice pool area, and a full kitchen, probably on the Kohala Coast. We've been to Maui a couple of times and loved staying at the Westin Kaanapali Ocean Villas and were hoping to find something similar.
It seems like we might have to choose between a resort that has the easy beach access but no kitchen, or a condo like those in the Fairways at Mauna Lani that have the kitchen but either a walk or drive to the beach. Is that true, or is there a place that combines the two and we're just overlooking it?
