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.
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.
