Come and enjoy the wonders of the Big Island while staying in the comfort of our home. The Fariways is a luxurious gated community in the renowned Mauna Lani Resort on the South Kohala Coast of Hawaii. The South Kohala Coast rests in the protection of the rain shadow of the Mauna Kea Volcano which, at 13,796 feet is the highest point on the Island. As a result, the South Kohala Coast enjoys the most sunshine and the least rain on the Big Island.
The Fairways is a short 5 minute walk in one direction from the beautiful Fairmont Orchid and in the other direction from the Shops at Mauna Lani. The Orchid offers elegant dining at Brown’s Beach House, or Norio’s Steakhouse and Sushi Bar or beautiful cocktails and sunsets as the conch is blown at the Luana Lounge. At the Shops you will find a gourmet grocery store and you can browse fanciful art galleries, purchase up-to-the-minute resort wear, or relax over a wonderful meal at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Monstera Sushi or the restaurant/lounge on the balcony at Tommy Bahamas. A beach walk of 20 minutes will take you to the Mauna Lani Resort Hotel just up the coast, where their ocean-front Canoe House restaurant delivers meals and moments you won’t forget.
A 10 minute drive south down the highway will take you to Waikaloa Resort, where the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace offer additional variety for golf, restaurants and shops, while Hapuna and Mauna Kea golf courses are just a 10 minute drive north, with the acclaimed Hapuna Beach a must stop.
The Mauna Lani resort area claims 2 championship golf courses, the North and South courses at the Francis H. I’i Brown Golf Club. When staying with us you are eligible for discounted green fees on either of these immaculate tracks. The welcoming staff will ensure you are well taken care of. Additionally there are acres of walking trails throughout the resort, wandering through lush gardens and black lava expanses. One can examine the Pualo petroglyphs left almost 300 years ago by ancient Hawaiians. The Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles) are numerous here and one can see them sunning themselves on almost any beach. The Mauna Lani Resort Hotel raises baby turtles in their saltwater ponds and releases them into the wild when they reach sufficient size, with appropriate pomp and ceremony, on Turtle Independence Day every July 4th. Also there are the Kalahuipua’a Fish Ponds evidencing the sophistication of the ancient Hawaiian aquaculture. Between December and March the Islands are visited by Humpback whales as they stop to deliver and raise calves on their journey between the hemispheres, and they present a show, breaching out of the blue waters between the Big Island and Maui. The resort is just down the road from Blue Hawaii who offer helicopter tours of the Kilauea volcano and the mountains, waterfalls and highlands of the Island.
As our guest, you will have access to the Mauna Lani Private Beach Club, just a 5 minute drive south within the resort. While the beach is not private (none are in Hawaii) this access entitles you to park and enjoy the lounge chairs and the canopied beach beds, as well as the Napua restaurant/lounge located there. The beach is a protected enclave of sugar white sand, and the snorkeling is amazing. All ocean gear can be rented just beside the beach.
Our 1900 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath townhome has been furnished with guests in mind. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and endless cupboard space stocked with everything one might need and bar stools by the kitchen bar allow those not creating magic within the kitchen to bear witness and socialize. Just off the kitchen is the laundry with full size washer and dryer.
The dining table is set for six, but will expand for more. Adjacent is the living room area with a 60” flat screen TV and Bose stereo system with docking station. The lanai looks out on the immaculate landscaping of the Fairways resort and the pool and is accessible from either the living room or the master bedroom. It is furnished with dining table and loungers, next to the built-in Viking grill and wet bar.
The master bedroom has a King size bed and 40” flat screen TV. Upstairs, the 2 bedrooms have 1 King size and 1 Queen size bed and a pull-out twin bed. The master ensuite boasts a dual vanity, an oversize jet tub with separate shower and walk-in closet.
Just down from our unit is the flawless pool area, equipped with a grilling cabana and kitchen for larger gatherings. Near the pool are landscaped areas with koi and water lily pools, waterfalls and a large hot tub. Overlooking the pool is the complementary Fairways gym and workout facility.
We invite you to come, stay at our home and explore the Big Island. We know you will love it, just as much as we do.
