What an incredible vacation spot! We love this place! The pictures on the website don't even capture how beautiful this place is.

Wow, What a place. This was the first time for us to visit Hawaii with our young family, and this place is the perfect fit. You clearly thought of everything and your condo is beautiful.

My husband and I stayed with our 5 year old and 9 month old at this property. It is definitely kid friendly (we only had to put a few smaller items out of reach from an exploring 9 month old!) and our daughter loved having her own bedroom with a bathroom and a window seat. This was probably the most well stocked and well equipped vacation rental we have ever stayed at - down to little swimmer diapers under the sink, laundry detergent in the laundry room and an ice maker on the fridge

While the Big Island is always incredible, our recent trip to Mauna Lani was truly one of the best because of our gorgeous accommodations in Jan's Fairway condo. The pictures and descriptions can't capture the quality, ambiance and location of this property. The accommodations are well decorated with attention to detail (pictures, furniture, kitchen amenities, electronics including TV, Music, etc) and you truly feel like you are at a 'home away from home'. Jan helped with the details of our stay and so many great suggestions for the surrounding area including food, beaches and activities. We've been to Mauna Lani many times without our children and the condo proved to be a perfect combination of luxury and location. We easily fit our family of four with room for at least two more if necessary. I highly recommend this property and we booked our trip for next year BEFORE we left the last day. Truly a paradise made even better by the accommodations and hospitality!

Walk to Orchid Beach or use of private beach club, cooler, beach toys available

NOW OFFERING CONCIERGE SERVICES!
LET US SPOIL YOU in this beautifully decorated home in a Hawaiian Paradise. Travertine tile floors throughout the downstairs, granite & stainless kitchen stocked with the gourmet chef in mind. We have a Viking gas barbecue on the lanai. There are lots of private areas for reading and contemplation of your tropical surroundings: a custom built window seat in the guest bedroom with a view towards the golf course and a comfy sitting room off the master bedroom looking out towards the pool.
Don't confuse our home with the small 2 bedroom units at Mauna Lani Fairways. OUR HOME IS THE LARGER FAIRWAYS 2 BEDROOM MODEL (approx.1700 sq.ft.) that has all the conveniences you will need including washer/dryer, Jacuzzi tub, and private baths in both guest and master suites.
For our guests who want to REMAIN CONNECTED, there is WI-Fi internet access throughout the house. 3 TVs, 2 DVD and Streaming Ne-Flix. We also have a CD/Ipod set-up in our living room so you can bring your favorite music.
WE HAVE ONE OF THE BEST LOCATIONS AT THE FAIRWAYS AT MAUNA LANI. From the downstairs lanai looking out towards the pool, enjoy the lovely swaying palm trees, lush green lawns, and tropical plants while dining in semi-privacy as our home is tucked away from the pedestrian traffic areas. From the second floor balcony, enjoy morning coffee while gazing at the beautiful Kohala mountains. Our North/South orientation provides protection from the famous trade winds off the mountains while delighting in outside living. ...and our location is distant from the large lava fields that encapsulate the golf course units.
YOU WON'T ARRIVE TO AN EMPTY CUPBOARD. We cheerfully provide basic staples. If you are arriving late, our Property Manager can arrange to have AM breakfast supplies waiting for you. If you are a new visitor to our island, let us be your remote concierge. We collect many suggestions about restaurants and excursions that we are happy to pass on to you.
Our guests have SPECIAL ACCESS TO THE HOMEOWNERS BEACH club that includes a full service restaurant and new cabanas along the beach. This is a wonderful snorkeling area for beginners and veteran snorkelers.
Stroll to the world famous Orchid hotel for evening poupus or walk to our nearby shopping center each morning for a morning coffee at our neighborhood market. Everything you need is at your fingertips for a relaxing vacation experience
My father fell in love with Hawaii while working here in the 1960s. It became my parent's very favorite vacation destination. I have wonderful memories of vacationing on the Big Island with my entire family which soon included my own children too. My parents both died in 2003. I was grateful to be able to purchase our home away from home in 2006. Now my husband and I can pass on the legacy of family times in Hawaii to our grandchildren. We look forward to providing our guests with the same spirit of Aloha which we have enjoyed in this beautiful area.
Jan Gilman purchased this condo in 2006
We loved the Fairways complex because of the spaciousness between units. We liked the townhouse design that avoids the neighbors above or the neighbors below. Our condo is built so well we never hear the neighbors next door. We find our particular unit to have a good deal of privacy as we look across spacious lawn and tropical gardens. Our three new plumeria trees will provide shade and more privacy as they grow.
You can choose to have the relaxation of a lifetime in our wonderful home at Fairways or to be busy 24/7. Spend the day with a book gazing at the Pacific Ocean on the beach at our private beach club. Choose from a varied menu of food and drinks at the restuarant on site. OR, make a picnic, pack the cooler, bring the boogie boards, beach toys and hiking shoes and spend the day at the beach snorkeling, playing in the ocean and taking off from the beach to hike the fisherman's trail.
Golf at our two beautiful courses and enjoy guest of owner rates.
Shop at the Mauna Lani shops, and have dinner at restaurants ranging from Four Season's grill, to Blue Dragon, and Bamboo. Eat at the restaurants right on property such as Tommy Bahama's or Ruth Chris Steak House.
Travel far afield. Hike the coast or the cool mountain trails, see the volcano flowing into the sea at night, enjoy a once in a lifetime experience of sunset at the top of 13,000 foot Mauna Lani, or learn about Hawaiian history at the City of Refuge.
Once back home, enjoy dinner on our lanai fixed with local food from our farmer's markets and fresh fish markets.
Find information about all these wonderful activities in our notebook and tour books in your home away from home at 1703 Fairways, Mauna Lani.
This morning I was thinking longingly about sitting on the patio at your place in the Mauna Lani. It made me realize that I hadn't thanked you and told you what a great time we had. It was the first extended trip Holly and I have taken without kids since our daughter was born 8 years ago! It was perfect. We love to cook and spent each morning making a great breakfast and sitting on the patio. Explored the island more than we've done in the past. We got to snorkel together, rather than trading off so someone could be with the kids on the beach. All in all it was terrific. Thanks for making it available. We'd love to do the trip again and will check back to see if you are still renting.
We stayed at Jan's beautiful condo for nearly 3 weeks over Christmas. We are a family of four and the large condo had everything and more that we could have asked for. We have been in several other condos in Hawaii in the past and this one was definitely one of our favourites. The kitchen was one of the best, with basic staples conveniently supplied, and what a treat to have our own Grill on the Lanai. Any questions were promptly answered by Larry (property manager) during our stay, and Jan was always quick to reply both pre and post vacation. The location within the Mauna Lani Resort was great and we will definitely return.
We stayed at the Fairways for in November 2014, The condo is very nicely appointed and spacious (we were two couples) and very clean! I can't think of anything we would need that wasn't there. The complex was very quiet and peaceful and the pool is really close by and we enjoyed an evening swim with the pool all to ourselves. Check-in and out was really smooth and Larry the caretaker was so helpful and available to answer any ??? There is no assigned parking but that was never a problem we always found a spot near to the unit. Mahalo
We went to the beach club and had a romantic dinner at Napua , I highly recommend it.
My daughter (23) and I (60) decided to go to Hawaii for a vacation. I did my research and found the Fairways in Mauna Lani (Big Island of Hawaii). The condo we stayed in was nothing less than perfect. The condo it's self was very well kept, clean, updated and had everything you could possibly need. The grounds were absolutely breath taking gorgeous, and the pool & hot tub well what can I say....awesome! The Fairways also has their own privet beach, white sands, beautiful cove which was great for snorkeling. We were able to see beautiful colorful fish and a SEA TURTLE which I might add was pretty awesome. There is a grocery store not far from the condo which also has pretty much everything you could possibly need and the best part about shopping there is you get a Great Discount on all products just because you are staying at the Fairways. If you are looking for a place to stay I would highly recommend the Fairways. I personally plan on returning with my husband next year. You really can't ask for a better place to stay. It has everything you could possibly need and want for the perfect Hawaii Vacation.
We stayed at the Fairways last year and loved it, but the unit we rented was not available, so in searching for another unit close to the pool, I found this one. It turned out to be even nicer than the previous unit we stayed in! This condo is spacious, beautifully decorated and very nicely equipped, you can tell someone has put a lot of love and care into it, it looks better in person than it does in the pictures! It is a short walk to the pool, which was a must for us, the pool at this complex is pretty fantastic. We love having access to the owner's beach and the close proximity to the Mauna Lani Shops as well.
Owner response was quick and efficient and we received a welcome e-mail with all kinds of useful information and tips from Larry, the property manager. Larry met us at check in and showed us around the place and how things worked. We also received a very nice welcome gift of macadamia nuts and kona coffee. Lots of aloha here!
We had been over on the Hilo side for the previous 9 days, ziplining, hiking at the volcano, farmer's markets etc... so when we got here all we wanted to do was chill. This is the perfect place for that. Really enjoyed the comfy chaise on the upstairs lanai :) I stayed with my two daughters, one adult and one teenager. My adult daughter took the second bedroom and bathroom. I shared the master with my teenage daughter, but she slept on the sofa bed in the alcove off the master, there is a pull out room divider so it was like us each having our own room. We loved it! We left the A/C at the standard setting and it was very comfortable. And one minor thing, but nice, the icemaker worked! Most of the rentals we have stayed in in Hawaii have had the icemaker frozen solid so we appreciated having ice.
The grounds at the complex are meticulously maintained and beautiful, views out the windows are really nice. It is quiet, as it's away from all the touristy stuff in Kona, but still close enough to drive over if there is something you want to do there. We did do the kayak and snorkeling tour of Kealakekua Bay, pretty great snorkeling in a marine preserve.
Love everything about this place, highly recommended!
Our family has spent the last decade trying to find the perfect spot to stay on the Big Island; and we finally found it with this condominium. We felt like we were staying in our vacation home and never once felt like we were stuck in somebody else's idea of a rental.
1. The condo is huge. Great for couples, a ladies trip and/or a family with kids
2. Very nicely appointed! The kitchen, living room, dining areas and bedrooms/bathrooms + out door patio areas are all lovely.
3. Location. The Mauni Lani is right in the middle of the north coast and very convenient on a big island. Easy to go north to Mauna Kea/Beach 69/Hawi, easy to go south to Kona and easy to get to the Mauna Kea summitt to see the stars.
4. The complex itself is very lowkey, nicely tended with gorgeous palm trees and a great pool/hot tub that gets the right amount of use (in other words not over crowded but also does not feel like a wasteland with palm leaves swirling the drain).
5. Fairmount - an easy walk down the road to a hotel which serves delicious drinks on the beach AND has a great fitness center / roster of exercice classes.
6. Own private beach. Yes the Mauni Lani has its own small beach. Great for families.
We enjoyed the margaritas at the restaurant.
7. Assistance - Jan (the owner) and Larry (the Property Manager) are very very helpful!
We would highly recommend this condo!
We just returned from a wonderful, relaxing island vacation. We travel to the Big Island every year and have done so for the past 15 years. We have stayed at a different place almost every time, as I like variety!! This townhouse had just about everything you would need to prepare a delightful meal, from measuring cups, sharp knives, and big wine glasses!!
The home was very clean, and we were very pleased that it had a DVR, as in the evening, after a day of fun, we do enjoy a bit of tv before going to sleep.
We would definitely stay here again, as the accommodations make your vacation!!!
Beautiful golf courses, great snorkeling beach, easy access to groceries, great restaurants, walking paths, fitness classes on the beach. Live theater and concerts.
Variety of farmer's markets featuring organic and locally grown produce. Easy access to commercially run excursions.
