Paradise On The Big Island

If you look up the word "paradise" in the dictionary, there should be a photo of Hawaii. If you want the quintessential island escape, look no further than the Hualalai resort on the Big Island.  
Many of you may be familiar with the fabulous Four Seasons Hualalai, arguably one of the best hotels in Hawaii - and the world. But for families or larger groups, a hotel is not always the right answer. Recently I discovered a hidden gem - stunning villa rentals on the Hualalai property, which offer full privileges at the Four Seasons resort - truly the best of both worlds. 
Villas range from townhouse style homes with 3-4 bedrooms to luxurious private villas with 5+ bedrooms.  They come with your own golf cart (or two) to take you back and forth to the resort.

Let me help you find out which option will work best for your next Hawaiian odyssey. In addition to working with the rental agency or the hotel to book your stay, I can also recommend the best private tour options from helicopter tours to private sailing charters.
Are you ready to say Aloha to Hawaii? I can almost taste the Mai Tais already...
