First VRBO Experience….
Mai Tai’s are mandatory on way over…….
Taking our annual jaunt to the Big Island this year and wanted to try something new. Our old standby is staying at the Mauna Kea Beach Resort. It’s been around for 50 + years and seems to do everything just right. But, with two couples going and wanting to do something a bit more private and relaxing, we opted for a VRBO rental. We reviewed pages of properties and finally decided on a spacious, three-bedroom home with ocean view on the Hapuna Golf Course. We’d heard lots of great VRBO stories and a few frightening ones……so, we were a teeny bit apprehensive. But, all were up for a “first”!
What a fabulous surprise! The property was everything we were looking for……upscale, super roomy and had matching Master Suites on either end of the home. You don’t always get that option and then one couple ends of with a “less than private” feel to their accommodations.
I’d highly recommend this option if you have a favorite spot and want to take it up a notch.
Nothing like Champagne to kick-off the stay! The kitchen featured Wolf ranges, convection ovens, sub-zero refrigerator and just about every appliance and dish combo you’d ever need or want.
The first thing you see when entering is the large and well-laid out patio and deck. Pool and jacuzzi warmed and ready.
Our Villa was right on the Hapuna Golf Course. We played the first day – beautiful ocean course.
Just when you thought things couldn’t get any better…..a spectacular sunset.
