Paul, the owner, and Wendee, the Property Manager, were a pleasure to work with. Very responsive to the few odds and ends that came up. Would highly recommend the Blue Lagoon for a large family vacation or celebration!

On the down side; the large open spaces tend to echo which was difficult for some who were trying to sleep, since the bedroom and bathroom doors are all louvered there is less privacy than we are accustomed to. Overall, it worked well for my family.
The pool and hot tub are perfectly situated to make it easy to have kids of all ages and adults enjoying it at the same time. Great shallow end for toddlers that makes parenting easy! And if you get tired of being outside by the pool or at the beach, the theater is top notch!
The location is also incredibly convenient. You can watch the 15th hold being played from the pool or take a short walk or golf cart ride to the, private beach club, or the nearby shops and restaurants.
You won't want to leave! We certainly didn't!
The property manager was attentive and any questions or concerns were handled promptly and professionally. We would most definitely rent here again for our next family vacation.

Blue Lagoon is everything the website states - and more. We did most of the cooking and eating for our large party at this property. The kitchen is amazing - fully stocked for large groups.;3 dishwashers, 3 sinks, 3 different coffee makers, every possible pot/pam/bowl/utensil/ appliance you could want - all neatly stored in labeled drawers.
We did hit Costco and the Waikoloa Village market when we landed - but both houses had "starter" supplies like trash bags, dish soap, etc.
The pictures on the website don't do justice to how nice this house is. The bedrooms are all large - and all but 2 have private en-suite bathrooms. Everyone commented on how comfortable the beds were in both houses, and the linens and towels are top-of-the-line.
We spent most of our days either at a beach, or sailing, fishing, etc. (We would highly recommend Kohala ziplining, and the Mauna Lani Beach Snorkel Sail.) Each of these houses came stocked with plenty of beach chairs, snorkel equipment, boogie boards, and beach towels. And both have a pool and Jacuzzi, however, the Blue Lagoon pool is larger so we did most of our swimming there. We took full advantage of the outdoor gas grills and Blue Lagoon has plenty of chaise lounges, and seating options for a large group. We never felt crowded.
The theater room is an extra treat - although we didn't take advantage of it enough. But if you hit unpleasant weather, it would be a bonus.
The golf cart worked well for us. Even though we had 4 large cars between us, it was nice if just a few people wanted to run to the local marketplace (Shops @ Mauna Lani) or to the Beach Club.
The owner Paul, and property manager Wendee were so easy to work with, communicated promptly, and the entire booking/payment process was seamless.
We happened to hit a couple days of "vog" from the volcano, a large brush fire, and the beginnings of Hurricane Hector. Yet - we still enjoyed every outdoor activity we had planned, and definitely did not want to leave.
We have stayed in vacation homes many times, and we all said that Blue Lagoon was the most well-kept, and well-stocked of anywhere we've been. We would absolutely stay again in both these beautiful homes, and recommend them without hesitation.
