The home faces westerly overlooking the turquoise waters of Kaunao'a Bay with distant Maui views and nightly sunsets to dazzle.
This architecturally significant residence was completely remodeled with designer finishes of locally handcrafted sustainable wood, reclaimed teak and modern furnishings imported from Europe that have been customized with Hawaii-themed fabrics.

There are indoor and outdoor dining options, situated to maximize the incredible views. Other amenities include a washer & dryer, an extensive library and wireless high-speed internet access available throughout the property.

We wanted a home that reflects the history of this classic resort with modern upgrades.
The Owner purchased this house in 2006
Mauna Kea Fairways is one of the most exclusive locations in Hawaii. This home provides the perfect combination of being completed secluded yet within a short distance of world class resort amenities.
This very private home is designed to integrate with the natural beauty of the area. The outdoor space features a natural pool, hot tub and lots of seating to entertain. The home has been completely renovated with designer furnishings that bring together the natural Hawaiian beauty and mid-century modern feel that is distinctive to the Mauna Kea Resort.
Dianne and I spent a fabulous Thanksgiving week with our family including our two grandchildren. The house fit us to a tee. The living arrangement, the outdoor patio, and the pool were all perfect compliments to the unbeatable view. We would certainly rent it again in a heart beat!
Great "designer's dream" house. So much style, but also comfortable! We enjoyed the killer ocean view (whales!) and the very well equipped kitchen. We will be back!
My husband and I and another couple booked this home for a much needed getaway this Fall. We have been vacationing at the Mauna Kea resort for almost a decade and we were so happy that we chose this Fairways home instead of staying at the hotel! The home was beautiful and exactly as pictured. We absolutely loved the home's decor and found the furnishings to be very comfortable (including the beds!) and much more updated than the hotel rooms. The home is situated perfectly for two couples as we each had our own end of the home and each bedroom had equally beautiful views and privacy. My husband swam laps every morning in the pool and we had dinner on the outdoor deck almost every night (the property manager suggested some great Farmer's Markets in the nearby town of Waimea and we had home cooked organic meals everyday-much cheaper and better quality than the typical hotel food one finds around here). We also purchased the resort pass which we found to be very reasonably priced and received all the perks of being a hotel guest. We had one issue getting the outdoor speakers to work and the property manager came right over to help us. This was definitely the relaxing retreat that we needed and is the only way we will be vacationing at the Mauna Kea from now on. I highly recommend this home to anybody who wants the full resort experience but with the flexibility to retreat to your own private sanctuary. Thank you for sharing your beautiful home with us!
The South Fairways home is located slightly upland from the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel but within the resort gates. Guests of this home have access to the resort amenities (for a fee) at both the Mauna Kea Beach Hotel and The Hapuna Beach Prince Hotel including golf, tennis, fitness, and beach facilities at the two most beautiful white sands beaches in Hawaii.
Favorite pastimes at the Mauna Kea include a morning swim or walk along the 1/2 mile bay or snorkeling over the rainbow-colored reefs. Enjoy a lavish breakfast at Manta or a healthy lunch beachside at the Hau Tree. Indulge in a leisurely afternoon of golf or tennis followed by a sunset cocktail at the Beach Bar. In the evening watch the giant manta ray that gather around the underwater lights or drift away star gazing under the jeweled sky.
