About Trude Fawson

Mauna Lani Palm Villas - Unit I-1

Owners: Trude and Scott Fawson

Photo taken on the Mauna Lani South Course

Why Trude Fawson chose Mauna Lani

We started coming to the Big Island in 1999. We were living on a mountaintop in Colorado at 10,500 elevation and needed to escape 5 feet of snow a week in April when the rest of the country was enjoying spring. Our first visit was for 2 weeks. We found that Hawaii was addicting. Currently, we spend about 10 months a year on the Big Island and consider it our home.

What makes this condo unique

We fell in love with the natural beauty of the Mauna Lani Resort. It's a place to forget about work and just relax. We scuba at the Beach Club. We golf on the 2 championship golf courses. We love walking around the fish ponds and reading about the history of Mauna Lani. The restaurants are wonderful. We enjoy watching the whales and all of the ocean life. Knowing that Mauna Lana is an eco friendly resort that cares about the environment is important to us. We find the location of the Palm Villas to be ideal since we can walk anywhere in the resort.

Guestbook comments from the owner

This was our 3rd stay at Palm Villas (and second stay in this unit!!!). This time around we had a blast boogie boarding at Hapuna Beach. A lovely few days at Mauna Kea Beach (arrive before 9 a.m. to get in!!), and as always, awesome snorkeling at the Mauna Lani Beach Club. We had excellent meals at Napua, Tommy Bahama, Café Pesto, and Bamboo (in Hawi). Being from So Cal we found awesome Mexican food at El Maguey in Kona. Also a fun, yummy lunch at Kona Brewing Co. The kids loved the seahorse museum tour and the beach there is beautiful. We will be back soon. Aloha Mahalo

This was our best VRBO experience to date! The condo is spacious, spotless, comfortable and beautifully decorated. The grounds are gorgeous and the location central to everything on the Kona side of the island. You have provided all the comforts of home in the setting of a fine resort. What more could a family want or need! The outdoor kitchen was a great feature & the private beach was lovely--we will definitely be planning a return trip! Thanks Trude & Scott!

Exceeded our expectations! (And we had high expectations)

  • 5 of 5
This Palm Villa property not only met our expectations but exceeded them, which is very unusual for me since I go in to every rental property with high expectations. Booking and working with Trude was smooth sailing. Answered all questions promptly. The property is beautiful. Tastefully decorated, this unit is great with it's own private parking space, and 2 stories end unit with nobody above or below you. Everything you need is there. The kitchen was well stocked. Thanks for the rice cooker! There were ice packs in the freezer for coolers, plenty of barbecue supplies for the outdoor grill which we utilized often. The only odd thing was no oil, but we remedied that cooking with butter and bacon grease (hey, we're on vacation).

Lots of room and space for the 5 of us (3 adults and 2 kids ages 5 and 3). Having 3 bathrooms is very nice, the place is spacious. Plenty of beach toys and gear (boogie boards, umbrella, beach chairs, coolers, you name it!). Plenty of beach towels. Just very well stocked.

Our only bummer were that this was the first home we stayed at in Hawaii with no ocean/sunset views, so it took a bit to adjust. We are home early with little kids, and love watching the ocean/sunset from our condos in the evening. However, for this location, and this price, for this property with these amenities, I am willing to give up the ocean view. It's not a far drive/walk away.

Just a FYI: the washer in the home is pretty loud during the spin cycle. Might want to run it while people are awake or not in the house.

Loved Mauna Lani. The private beach is lovely. Close parking, gentle waves, beach chairs for use. You're also on the Kohala coast which means beautiful beaches (Hapuna, Mauna Kea). We got fresh fish almost every day to grill on our lanai. Nice little gourmet grocery markets in Mauna Lani and in Queen's shops in Waikoloa. Otherwise there is Safeway, Walmart and Costco in Kona, and a grocery store in Waikoloa Village about 6 miles up Waikola Road.

Amazing property, highly recommend. Will definitely stay here again. Thanks for a wonderful time!

Perfect!

  • 5 of 5
The house is big, elegant, clean and well furnished. Rooms and bathrooms are cozy and huge (the master bedroom shower is as lage as a regular bathroom). Kitchen is equipped with everything needed for the most experienced cooker. we had a minor issue with the AC that was solved within hours. Swimming pool is warm, especially in the afternoon, and the fitness center is a bonus. We enjoyed breakfast and daily BBQ outside. All the best beaches are within a 15min drive. Too bad the next week we had to move to the Waikoloa Hilton Resort, which, given the price, is not even comparable to the beauty of this apartment!!

The best yet.....

  • 5 of 5
We have been to the Big Island 6 times now and this has been the best vacation yet. The condo is so well appointed and comfortable you feel like you are on vacation at home! We will definitely be back next year and recommend this to anyone who likes an immaculate and clean property to stay.

Excellent Property

  • 5 of 5
Scott & Trude's Palm Villa getaway is an excellent property and everything is as advertised. We found to have no issues with the AC being set to 73 degrees, and preferred to turn it off at night anyway to allow the ocean breeze to come through. Their property is steps from a great pool for the kids or adults, and a short drive from the beach club. You could walk to the beach, but with kids it was nice to drive with all the gear we bring for them, so the gate access and private parking for the beach was a definite bonus. With the walking path to the beach right out the front gate, it gave us great opportunity to jog to and exercise at the beach in the early mornings.

After 3 trips to the Big Island and 7 trips to Maui, I have to say that this was one of our most enjoyable trips, and it has a lot to do with Scott & Trude's property and amenities. We will definitely stay in their property again, if available.

The Texas Clan loved it !!

  • 5 of 5
What a week of enjoyment !! This property is exactly what it says it is other than the pictures do not do it justice. It is beautiful. The villa is very clean & each room is decorated to make your stay even more pleasureable with its Hawaiian decor. The property is constantly maintained with the grounds cleaned & immaculate. The owners are great to work with answering all questions quickly & the payment is simple & easy. Access into the property is also a painless process.
We enjoyed several of the local beaches including Beach Club. They are also well maintained. The free Polynesian Show (hula and fire dancing) at The Shops was very entertaining & was just as good as the luau we attended in Oahu. It is a true show of the heritate there. Our granddaughter enjoyed the lei making & weaving also. The lady there was very helpful in answering our questions regarding the area also with many helpful hints & tips.
We liked the grocery store & purchased ready made food as well as items for cooking.
The grill was enjoyed by our family. The villa is well stocked with condiments as well as plastic items for storage.
We also enjoyed shopping in Kona at the open market downtown where locals sell their produce & wares. We found that souvenirs are much cheaper there especially if you will walk up inside a little & check out. The produce is wonderful. The people there are very helpful. No trip anywhere is complete without a trip to the local Harley Davidson shop for t-shirt purchases. They too were very friendly.
The closet of beach items is over the top. I really think there is everything you will ever need there to make your trip to the water wonderful. There is everything for anyone ages one to 100 there.
We enjoyed eating at Tommy Bahamas which is within walking distance and at the Shops. Merriman's was recommended to us before arrival and lived up to their recommendations. Being from Texas the food was different for us but enjoyable. We always try to live amongst the cultures while on vacation and enjoy what the locals eat to help in the vacation experience.
The airport in Kona is unlike any we have ever experienced before with its open air atmosphere. Online it says to report three hours early for check-in. Let's just say that next time we will still be enjoying the sights rather than sitting for three hours as we walked right in with no wait.
This is an A Plus rating and we hope to enjoy again in the future. Aloha !!
