Oyster Review Summary

Photos and Review by Oyster.com Investigators

Pros

  • Fully equipped kitchens and spacious living rooms
  • Large private lanai with comfortable seating
  • Washer and dryer in each unit
  • Free Wi-Fi and parking
  • Free shuttle throughout Mauna Lani Resort area
  • Attractive pool and Jacuzzi
  • Pool pavilion with grills, kitchen and dining area
  • Beautiful landscaping and great ocean views

Cons

  • Three-day minimum stay
  • Interior decoration decided by condo owners and varies by unit
  • No fitness center (fee to access spa and fitness center at Mauna Lani Bay Hotel)
  • No on-site beach access (6-minute drive to the Mauna Lani Beach Club)
  • Reception/check-in building can be difficult to find

Bottom Line

The Mauna Lani Point Villas are part of the larger Mauna Lani Resort area, and the 65 one- and two-bedroom units in the rental program all have gourmet kitchens and large living room areas with great light. Since each unit is individually owned, the interior decorating and small details (including appliances, electronics and bathrooms) can vary greatly. The pool pavilion is tastefully designed and welcoming, with comfortable furniture and room for larger gatherings and events. For a fee, guests at Mauna Lani Point can gain access to the spa and fitness services at the neighboring Mauna Lani Bay Hotel, where the closest beach is also located.

Oyster Hotel Review

 Location

On the island's posh Kohala coast

Mauna Lani Point is located on the Kohala coast, where ancient sites coexist with luxury resorts and renowned golf courses. Nearby Waimea (a.k.a Kamuela, the area's newer, official name) is a major agricultural hub, where many of the country's vegetable and flower farms are located. It's also where Hawaiian cowboys (known as "paniolos") reigned in the 1800s, wrangling wild Longhorns, and later, establishing ranches.

The Big Island is packed with natural wonders, including active volcanoes, where visitors can still see lava flows, numerous beaches, and rainforests. It's by far the largest of the Hawaiian islands, so be prepared to drive to experience some of the top attractions.

  • 3-minute drive from Kona International Airport
  • 2-hour drive from Hilo International Airport
  • 6-minute drive to the Mauna Lani Beach Club
  • 6-minute drive to the Kalahuipuaa Fish Ponds
  • 6-minute drive to the Puako Petroglyph Preserve
  • 15-minute drive to the Hapuna Beach State Recreation Area, one of the island's top beaches
  • 20-minute drive to the Pu'ukohola Heiau National Historic Site
  • 35-minute drive to Waimea
  • 45-minute drive to Kailua-Kona
  • 1-hour-45-minute drive to Akaka Falls State Park, home to the 442-foot Akaka Falls and the 100-foot Kahuna Falls
  • 2-hour drive to Mauna Kea Observatories (at the summit)
  • 4-hour drive to Hawaii Volcanoes National Park, home to the island's most popular volcanoes
