Kamuela, HI

Get into the aloha spirit with friends and family at Champion Ridge 10. Stylish and private, this retreat overlooking the golf course has room for up to six guests and a location close to the Mauna Lani Resort and gorgeous Hapuna Beach—perfect for a warm-weather holiday or a trip to mark a special occasion.
From the tranquil water feature at its entrance to its infinity pool with views of the fairways, this property sets a tone of calming luxury. Look beyond the course to the Kohala Mountains, the Pacific and Maui in the distance from the sitting area on the shaded lanai, a lounger on the sunny terrace or the hot tub. A barbecue makes it easy to try out fresh local seafood, while a media room, cable TV, sound system and Wi-Fi are ready to entertain in the evenings.
The villa’s recently renovated interiors were designed by Hawaii-based Eric Henderson, and feature nods to vintage island style alongside more modern touches. An open-plan great room with sliding glass doors leading to the lanai makes the most of the gorgeous views, and the cream-and-turquoise sitting and dining areas are chic yet inviting. Granite countertops and a breakfast bar lend both style and substance to the fully equipped kitchen.
The master suite at Champion Ridge 10 boasts a king bed, ensuite bathroom with a stone soaking tub and spectacular ocean and sunset views. The other two bedrooms each have king beds and ensuite bathrooms, plus private entrances that mean they could be used as honeymoon-style suites or quieter accommodations for in-laws.
Guests of this Big Island vacation rental are welcome to use the golf course, tennis courts, spa and fitness center at the nearby Mauna Lani Resort, though some activities or treatments may be at extra cost. Tote the provided beach gear—including umbrellas, towels, snorkel equipment, a cooler and more—to the resort’s beach or stop by the shops for a selection of gourmet foods from sandwiches to freshly made sushi.
