We've decided to stay in the Kohala area. We're looking at a couple different condos in the Mauna Lani area and Waikoloa. First, what is the driving distance between the two? I'm thinking the shopping and restaurant are more our style in the Waikoloa area. We're not really foodie type people and I'm getting the impression that the Mauni Lani area has more expensive and upscale type restaurants.
I'd love something that we could walk to the swimmable/snorkeling beaches from....do any of these allow for that? Currently on our consideration list are the following...
Golf Villas E-23 - http://www.vrbo.com/236344
Mauna Lani Fairways - http://www.vrbo.com/130036
Mauna Lani Palm Villas - http://www.vrbo.com/217017

Waikoloa Colony Villas - http://www.vrbo.com/32287
I'd love any input you can give on any of these listing or complexes in general.
