Mauna Lani Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Townhome, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 2-4) with access to private beach club.

Welcome to Hale Laule'a at Kulalani

(our house of peace and happiness in the heavenly meadow)

***It's all about Style.***

With 1331 sq. ft of thoughtfully designed interior space, our poolside, 2-storey, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom Hawaiian plantation style villa is the perfect place to relax and unwind.

***It all about Quality and Service.***

We care and it shows. From the designer colours to the well-stocked kitchen, Hawaiian bath products and 100% Kona Coffee, we strive to provide the best possible experience for our guests.

***It's all about Sun.***

Kulalani is located at Mauna Lani, a sun-drenched Kohala Coast resort community north of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. We love Kulalani ... and we know you will too!


Greet the day with freshly brewed 100% Kona coffee, and watch the sunrise over the 14,000-ft. Mauna Kea from the main floor lanai and upstairs lanais.

Relax on the living room’s Tahitian style sectional and download a new novel with our free WiFi. Catch the big game or enjoy a Netflix movie on the 40' Smart, flat screen HDTV. Or, just melt away while listening to one of many Hawaiian music CDs.

The wrap-around main floor lanai is complete with a Viking propane gas BBQ, wet bar, granite countertop, elegant resin wicker dining and conversation furniture, and area rugs for your comfort.

The Viking BBQ with quality tools is easy to use. Imagine firing up a Hawaiian BBQ for 'al fresco' dining or relaxing on the love seat, reading a book and sipping a Mai Tai while taking in breathtaking views of the mountains, gardens and beautiful pools!


The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need - and a few things you didn’t even think you needed - to make preparing meals a breeze. The kitchen is accented with sleek granite countertops, and features top of the line GE Profile appliances. You will be amazed at how well-stocked and well-maintained the kitchen is, with an assortment of gadgets and small appliances. The gathering height table and dining room chairs sit on a beautiful, Hawaiian inspired floral wool area rug, which sets the tropical mood. Place mats, chargers and napkins complete the glass-covered table, while seating four guests comfortably and in style.

We provide specialty glassware, serving dishes and utensils for everything from a pizza party to Thanksgiving dinner. Prefer to dine “al fresco?” The glass dining table on our wrap-around, main floor lanai can seat four. If you prefer to snack by the pool or join the owners for one of their potluck dinners at the pavilion, there are plenty of outdoor dishes, glassware, cutlery and serving dishes for safe, poolside gatherings.


The roomy upstairs master bedroom features a Cal king 4 poster bed with rich bedding, and a tropical-inspired ceiling fan to push through the cool trade winds breeze. Doze off while watching the 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player, or listening to the gentle sounds of Hawaiian music. Privacy blinds, luxury linens and a new, ultra-comfortable, hypo-allergenic bed means sweet dreams await.

Step out on to the private lanai and watch the sunrise while sipping your first cup of 100% Kona coffee. Relax on the comfortable chairs with ottomans, watch the sun rise over towering Mauna Kea or take in the amazing views of the Kohala mountains and coastline.

The spa-like master bathroom features tile floors, oversized closet with hangers, a spacious, glass-enclosed shower, private water closet and a large, double vanity with granite countertops. A full-size jetted tub is ideal for soaking after a day of sightseeing, golfing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach.

The main floor bedroom, decorated in a tropical coconut palm motif, features a new, organic hypo-allergenic queen bed, ceiling fan and a 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player.

The adjacent main floor bathroom has tile floors, a single vanity with granite countertop, and a tub with shower and sliding glass doors.

The two bedrooms are located on separate floors and offer the ultimate in privacy. Both bedrooms feature WiFi, alarm clocks, ironing boards and irons. Both bathrooms are stocked with premium Hawaiian bath products, 100% white cotton towels, hair dryers, magnifying mirrors and spa-like extras.


Drift the day away on a pool float in the large, lagoon-style pool or get that workout in with a swim in the lap pool. Laze around on one of the lounge chairs by the quiet lap pool, while reading one of your favourite authors or listening to tunes on your iPod. Play a round of golf on one of the two championship courses at the resort. Cap off the day watching the sunset, poolside or soaking away in one of the hot tubs with the push of a button. When you’re ready to come in, dry off with one of our big, fluffy beach towels.

There’s just something special about Kulalani at Mauna Lani. The setting is peaceful and tranquil. At night, the dark night skies make for fabulous star gazing.

Whether your idea of outdoor living is an early morning round of golf at one of Mauna Lani’s two championship course, an afternoon walk along the beach, or having a BBQ on your lanai at sunset, our villa provides the perfect home base to enjoy your favourite activities on the Big Island.

Hawaii's beaches come in all different colours: white, black, green, salt and pepper. You will enjoy access to the members-only Mauna Lani Private Beach Club, which boasts one of the best white sand beaches, snorkelling sites and local cuisine on the island. Sit down for some casual dining, pupus, beer, wine and cocktails at Napua, the Beach Club’s restaurant and bar.

Walk along 49 Black Sand Beach, located right within the resort community or paddle board off the beaches at Puako. Scuba, snorkel, surf or boogie board in clear, turquoise water all within a short walk or drive from the villa. Do some whale watching (typically November to March) or swim with the dolphins!

Bikers, hikers, joggers and walkers will discover miles of trails winding through the ancient Hawaiian fishponds. If you’re lucky, you may see mountain goats grazing in the lava fields! Sports enthusiasts can ski on the snowcapped slopes of Mauna Kea, take a hike in Volcanoes National Park, or enjoy a day of horseback riding at historic Parker Ranch in Waimea town.

Adventurous types can explore the majestic Kilauea Volcano by helicopter from the near-by Heliport, or by car, star gaze at the Mauna Kea observatories, enjoy a night dive with manta rays or discover green sand beaches at the southern tip of the island.

Explore waterfalls, rainforests and the historic nearby towns of Waimea, Hawi, Kona and Hilo. Take a tour of a coffee farm or visit the Captain Cook historic monument at Kealakekua Bay. Go deep sea fishing or just sit back and relax on “island time.”

With the Mauna Lani Shops nearby, there’s easy access to shopping, dining and entertainment.


Our villa is the ideal setting for your Hawaii vacation. For serious inquiries only, please email or call us. Please, no monthly inquiries (as monthly rates are not offered).

Aloha ... and Mahalo for considering us for your vacation destination!

About Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk

We live in Vancouver, British Columbia and are avid travellers. We discovered the Hawaiian islands during a cruise in 2005. We tendered in Kona, toured a coffee farm, visited Pu’uhonua O Honaunau and had an amazing snorkeling experience at Kahalu'u ... all in one day!

We fell in love with the Big Island and its authentic 'aloha' culture. 
It was a dream come true when we purchased our vacation home at the Mauna Lani Resort in 2008. With each visit we feel more and more a part of the 'aloha' spirit and community.

Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk chose Mauna Lani

We chose the Mauna Lani Resort because of the fabulous beaches and the abundance of sunshine on the south Kohala coast (an attractive feature for those who live in a coastal rain forest!). The private beach club, a fabulous fitness centre and spa, and a local supermarket are all within a friendly and welcoming community. We also were impressed with the two championship golf courses within the resort.

When we toured the Kulalani resort we fell in love with Kulalani right away because it felt immediately like home. Our villa is spacious and well laid out. The private amenities (2 pools, 2 hot tubs and a fitness centre) at Kulalani are among the best that Mauna Lani has to offer!

Home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We had a great 2 week stay in this beautiful condo. It is just as good as the photos suggest, immaculate, like new, extremely well equipped and in a great location. What we liked best:

- the outdoor living spaces, both upstairs and down. So many quiet, comfortable places to relax or visit

- the entire upstairs huge Master suite and ensuite with the great view from the private lanai

- very well equipped kitchen for cooking, as well as a top quality BBQ on the lanai

- location near off to walk to a great little market and also restaurants and sbops, also very nice the 2 large pools in the complex

Richard and Nina were great to work with. You cannot go wrong with renting this condo!

This is a very nice complex and the lap pool was a real plus for us. The unit is tastefully decorated and the lanai furniture is inviting and comfortable which we really appreciated. It is an end unit so there is lots of light and it is close by the entrance to the pool area which was very convenient. Even with the close proximity of the walkway it is was not noisy at all. The private beach is a plus and we took our coffee there every morning for coffee and a swim. The unit is extremely well-equipped. After exposure in Kona, we much prefer the Kohala area. Thanks Nina and Richard for sharing your Hawaiian home. Aloha and Mahalo.

Beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5

My adult daughter and I stayed here for a week. The owners are a pleasure to rent from. They are very nice and very helpful when it comes to the paperwork and information you need. The condo is beautiful and and has lovely amenities. There are two pools and a large fitness center that are a part of community. The location is great because the small shopping area is right there and the Fairmont Hotel is walking distant if you want to dine there or have a cocktail.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone staying on Hawaii.

Perfect Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Let me start by saying I have stayed at several VRBO homes on the Big Island. Richard and Nina's home is 5 star! They thought of every little thing that you could possibly need. Other place I have stayed at (VERY nice homes) did not compare. Their taste is beautiful and everything was clean and well maintained. We loved the Beach Club and the restaurant there was way better then the Mauna Lani. We took their suggestion and went to several local restaurants that were excellent! Blue Dragon, Cafe Pesto. We had a beautiful Birthday celebration at the Four Seasons U'LU. We went whale watching (amazing), Horseback riding in the Waipio Valley, Star Gazing on Mauna Kea, Helicopter ride. It was all perfect. We can't wait to come back to visit. Thank you Richard and Nina!

We have just returned from staying at Nina and Richard's beautiful villa. This is the 2nd time we have stayed here and highly recommend it. The unit is tastefully decorated, spacious, modern and exceptionally clean and well appointed. The kitchen is well stocked and there is every possible appliance you would need. We especially enjoyed relaxing on the large lanai and the full size barbeque for outdoor dining. The villa is ideally located in the complex just steps from the recreation area which includes 2 pools (1 lagoon size) 2 hot tubs and a great workout room. Shopping and restaurants are just a 5 to 10 minute walk plus for your enjoyment a private secure beach club with white sandy beach, great snorkeling and a yummy restaurant. Nina and Richard have gone to great lengths to make your holiday enjoyable. They have documented anything and everything you need to know about the many attractions and facilities on the Big Island. As we like to golf it was easy to book tee times using the information provided in there "Welcome Book".The owners were amazing to deal with and communication with them was outstanding. We will definitely return! You cannot go wrong renting this lovely villa.

really enjoyable stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for four days. It was one of the best experiences we had so far. The villa is conveniently located in a resort area and it is close to grocery and beach parks. The owners are very very nice and extremely helpful, with tons of information and all kinds of recommendations. We travelled with a 8 month infant, the villa provides everything we needed, except a baby bed which was not a problem for us because we brought our own travel crib. The villa is very spacious, clean and convenient and the owners are very nce. We highly recommend this place. We would stay here again next time in big island.
