Welcome to Hale Laule'a at Kulalani (Kulalani 2006) at Mauna Lani Resort
With 1331 sq. ft of thoughtfully designed interior space, our poolside, 2-storey, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom Hawaiian plantation style villa is the perfect place to relax and unwind.
***Quality and Service***
We care and it shows. From the designer colours to the well-stocked kitchen, Hawaiian bath products and 100% Kona Coffee, we strive to provide the best possible experience for our guests.
Kulalani is located at Mauna Lani, a sun-drenched Kohala Coast resort community north of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. We love Kulalani ... and we know you will too!
Greet the day with freshly brewed 100% Kona coffee, and watch the sunrise over the 14,000-ft. Mauna Kea from the main floor lanai and upstairs lanais.
Relax on the living room’s Tahitian style sectional and download a new novel with our free WiFi. Catch the big game or enjoy a Netflix movie on the 40' Smart, flat screen HDTV. Or, just melt away while listening to one of many Hawaiian music CDs.
The wrap-around main floor lanai is complete with a Viking propane gas BBQ, wet bar, granite countertop, elegant resin wicker dining and conversation furniture, and area rugs for your comfort. Imagine firing up a Hawaiian BBQ for 'al fresco' dining or relaxing on the love seat, reading a book and sipping a Mai Tai while taking in breathtaking views of the mountains, gardens and beautiful pools!
The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need - and a few things you didn’t even think you needed - to make preparing meals a breeze. The kitchen is accented with sleek granite countertops, and features top of the line GE Profile appliances. You will be amazed at how well-stocked and well-maintained the kitchen is, with an assortment of gadgets and small appliances. The gathering height table and dining room chairs sit on a beautiful, Hawaiian inspired floral wool area rug, which sets the tropical mood. Place mats, chargers and napkins complete the glass-covered table, while seating four guests comfortably and in style.
We provide specialty glassware, serving dishes and utensils for everything from a pizza party to Thanksgiving dinner. Prefer to dine “al fresco?” The glass dining table on our wrap-around, main floor lanai can seat four. If you prefer to snack by the pool or join the owners for one of their potluck dinners at the pavilion, there are plenty of outdoor dishes, glassware, cutlery and serving dishes for safe, poolside gatherings.
The roomy upstairs master bedroom features a Cal king canopy bed with rich bedding, and a tropical-inspired ceiling fan to push through the cool trade winds breeze. Doze off while watching the 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player, or listening to the gentle sounds of Hawaiian music. Privacy blinds, luxury linens and a new, ultra-comfortable, hypo-allergenic bed means sweet dreams await.
Step out on to the private lanai and watch the sunrise while sipping your first cup of 100% Kona coffee. Relax on the comfortable chairs with ottomans, watch the sun rise over towering Mauna Kea or take in the amazing views of the Kohala mountains and coastline.
The spa-like master bathroom features tile floors, oversized closet with hangers, a spacious, glass-enclosed shower, private water closet and a large, double vanity with granite countertops. A full-size jetted tub is ideal for soaking after a day of sightseeing, golfing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach.
The main floor bedroom, decorated in a tropical palm motif, features a new, organic hypo-allergenic queen bed, ceiling fan and a 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player.
The adjacent main floor bathroom has tile floors, a single vanity with granite countertop, and a tub with shower and sliding glass doors.
The two bedrooms are located on separate floors and offer the ultimate in privacy. Both bedrooms feature WiFi, alarm clocks, ironing boards and irons. Both bathrooms are stocked with premium Hawaiian bath products, 100% white cotton towels, hair dryers, magnifying mirrors and spa-like extras.
Drift the day away on a pool float in the large, lagoon-style pool or get that workout in with a swim in the lap pool. Laze around on one of the lounge chairs by the quiet lap pool, while reading one of your favourite authors or listening to tunes on your iPod. Play a round of golf on one of the two championship courses at the resort. Cap off the day watching the sunset, poolside or soaking away in one of the hot tubs with the push of a button. When you’re ready to come in, dry off with one of our big, fluffy beach towels.
There’s just something special about Kulalani at Mauna Lani. The setting is peaceful and tranquil.

From the initial contact to our departure email, Nina and Richard were gracious and helpful. We have been renting condos in the Big island for years and this was the first time we rented direct from the owners. With Nina and Richard (versus a management co) we felt more informed, prepared and relaxed going into the trip. They checked in with us several times before and during the stay to make sure we had everything we needed. This never happened with the rental companies who usually just takes our money and gives us the lockbox code.
When we got to the condo we found a sweet welcome gift of local cookies, juice and jam. It set the tone for the rest of the stay. Kulalani 2006 is the hands down best appointed luxury condo we have ever stayed at. We loved the island decor and the furniture was comfortable. The bedding and mattresses were super clean and smelled fresh. There were ample towels and very nice starter bath products. They provided all the beach and swim gear you can think of which was such a nice bonus. The most impressive thing was the amazing kitchen and grill area. There were great pots & pans, sharp knives and every appliance that you could need! They had a waffle iron, a slow cooker and a margarita machine! All top of the line. Everything was super clean and in new or near new condition.
We were super happy with our stay and can't wait to go back!

We loved this vacation home. The owners have provided everything you could possibly need. The house had lots of spices and other cooking needs and we were gifted with a starter coffee pack and a nice bottle of wine. It was a great base for touring the Big Island with many lovely beaches nearby. After staying in beautiful resorts on Oahu and Maui, it was nice to have all the conveniences of home. The grocery store is right down the road and we took advantage of the very nice grill. Comfortable beds and bedding, lots of beach accessories (masks, fins, chairs, etc.) This is a peaceful, quiet development and most days we had both pools(steps from the condo) to ourselves. We hope to return someday!

No need to search any further. Richard and Nina provided us a relaxing and 5 star retreat villa with all the amenities you could ask for. The house, onsite pools and fitness center were outstanding, but the highlight was spending time at the private and secure beach club. The club's lifeguarded beach/ocean-front was like swimming in a real-life aquarium. No need to spend additional resources on a chartered snorkeling/scuba diving excursion. This being our 4th visit to the Big Island, the location was just right for travels in any direction to the attractions...just book your trip with Kulalani 2006.

From booking the resort to checking in and checking out, it was all a breeze.
What a fantastic property. Amazing location within the resort complex with immediate gate access to the gardens (pools and fitness center). The townhouse is beautifully appointed, was clean and very comfortable. We especially liked that there were plenty of spices, cleaning products, barbeque and top notch appliances. You literally have everything you would need. Beds were very comfortable, lots of pillows also available.
We really liked how close you are situated to so many great outdoor sight touring areas. Our favourite was the beach at Mauna Kea with great waves and amazing sand. Only drawback was limited beach access parking available.
We also really enjoyed Hapuna Beach but found there to be more currents in the ocean and these darn hard thorns in the sand. Not as clean as the next door Mauna Kea, but was still great. Both beaches are approx 10 minutes from the townhouse.
We did go to the beach club a couple times, but for short stints, we preferred the waves and beach at Hapuna and Mauna Kea.
The convenience of the supermarket down the street was another big bonus.
Not great shopping in the area for clothing, etc but we did venture to Kona a couple times and hit Target, Ross and Costco was excellent. Costco has the best prices around for food and alcohol.
We did go to the tourist zone in Kona, was ok, but a bit tacky.
When you go, you should definitely take the 2 hour helicopter tour with Blue Hawaiin Helicopter and tour the volcanoes and lush valleys on the Hilo side of the island. As well, there were brochures on the desk at the front door for a yacht company called Unbelievable, and it was. We chartered the boat for 4 hours of whale watching and we had an amazing time with my parents and wife. Just the 4 of us on a 52 foot yacht.
Overall I would highly recommend renting this property, you would not be disappointed.

Our stay at in unit 2006 at Kulalani was one of the few travel experiences we've had where everything about the accommodation was as good or better than advertised. Nina and Richard have done a fantastic job outfitting their unit so their guests can just relax and enjoy the wonderful surroundings.
A few of the highlights:
- unit is ideally situated in the complex (near the pools / hot tub / workout room
- both the unit and the common areas are in excellent shape and are well maintained
- unit is outfitted with every amenity including many unexpected touches like coolers, freezer packs and Rubbermaid containers for picnics, lawn chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards for the beach, etc.
- Beach Club is terrific (not too busy, good restaurant, excellent snorkeling)
