About Kerry and Linda Simpson

We have been happily married for 39 years. We met in Boston during college days, were married in Maine at Linda's parents' home, moved to San Francisco in 1979, and moved from our San Rafael home to a new home in Oakmont (Santa Rosa) CA and The Fairways condo in 2013.

Kerry and Linda Simpson purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Kerry and Linda Simpson chose Mauna Lani

We have been coming to The Orchid since it was a Ritz Carlton over 20 years ago. We love the Big Island for all it's variety and especially love Mauna Lani for it's location, weather, and all the activities it offers.

What makes this townhome unique

We love The Fairways because of the great construction, the relatively small size of the development, the great pool and activity areas, and it's proximity to The Fairmont Orchid and the Shops at Mauna Lani. We are only 30 minutes away from the Kona airport.

Great place!

  • 5 of 5
We had a fantastic family vacation on the Big Island, much of it due to this well-appointed townhouse. It had everything we needed to feel comfortable, right down to the built-in grill on the lanai, beach towels, and pantry with everything needed for cooking. There is a Costco near the airport which was great for stocking up on food. For water lovers, you'll love the close proximity to the swimming pool and the short drive to the private beach for snorkeling which is always calm and full of fish. You can rent your snorkel equipment at the small shopping center in the resort. The owners were great to work with and provided lots of helpful information. I've stayed in many vacation homes, and this is definitely one of the best.

PERFECTION!

  • 5 of 5
We stayed here for one month while my husband recovered from back surgery. We are active people and this location was perfect for exploring the island. We hiked every day, snorkelled and swam as well. The condo location is perfect for hiking trips to Mauna Lani and Mauna Kea as well as the north end of the Island. It was lovely to be able to come back "home" to soak in the hot tub and swim in the beautiful pool. We also appreciated being able to bbq for ourselves although we did eat out a couple of times at nearby restaurants. (Roy's is great - but noisy and pricey). We were amazed by the array of daily delivered fresh seafood at Foodland - what a find! We also took advantage of the guest pass to the private beach and found the snorkelling to be wonderful. In fact, it was better than any other location we hiked/drove to, including the hot hike down to the Captain Cook memorial. Admittedly, the water there was astonishingly clear, but the amount of sea life was more abundant and varied at our own little private beach!
The condo itself is beautifully furnished and the kitchen was supplied with everything one could possibly need. We were astonished by the number of Keurig choices! It was a lovely place to stay and we were so unhappy about having to leave. We came to know the gardening staff who were friendly and helpful. As well, Larry the manager was incredibly helpful and gave us invaluable insider information.
The owners were easy to work with and wonderfully flexible. We never had to use the air conditioning as we do not like it and we relied on the trade winds to cool the home. It worked out really well. This property is absolutely wonderful! I would go back in a heartbeat! We actually looked at purchasing a property here - but the owners have secured the very best condo location, to be sure!

This was our second extended stay at the Fairways, which we thoroughly enjoy. This year we needed three bedrooms as our family joined us there. I knew the general location we wanted, and we're beyond pleased with our choice. The kitchen is incredibly well supplied with everything you could possibly need. Linda and Kerry are very nice to work with, and kept in touch during our stay, which included the hurricanes and high heat. They came to our rescue when we found air conditioning a necessity part way through our stay and responded immediately to our request. The whole family appreciated our proximity to the pool and the pleasure of lounging on the lanai and looking out over the beautiful lawns. We would definitely return to this property. Thank you to our hosts! Pat and Jim

Perfect place to stay! The house has everything you could possibly want, and is near everything. If you have kids its right near the pool and the private beach is amazing. If you eat out all the restaurants near by are very good. The foodland market is close by and has a wonderful selection. if you decide to cook in. you cannot go wrong staying here!

Wonderful place, wonderful people

  • 5 of 5
Really can't say enough about this place. The location on the Big Island is perfect -- central to everything and near the best beaches -- and there's a pool just steps from this very clean, well-appointed condo. The in-and-out logistics are easy, the owners are great, and we even took advantage of the golf discount. Most important, the upstairs is completely private/separate from the downstairs, which made for a nice separation of space and good night's sleep. My only suggestion is to be sure to schedule use of the air conditioning ahead of time; you need to schedule it before you arrive, and you'll need it. It's warm on the Kohala Coast.

Luxurious accommodations

  • 5 of 5
This house is immaculately kept, well stocked and tastefully decorated. I enjoyed cooking with their Calphalon pans so much I came home and bought some myself! Coffee machine with special blend cups, coffee grinder, blender, bakeware, steam basket. . . everything you need to cook a good meal. The linens were so soft, there was an array of aromatic bath salts beside the tub, there was a little food left in the pantry and fridge to tie us over until the morning when we could shop for groceries (our plane landed at 10:30pm so everything was closed). All the little touches added up for a very comfortable and relaxing vacation.
The owners have beautiful artwork and furniture throughout the house, some easily damageable, and not kid proof, so do keep that in mind.

Whale Watching:

During the months of December, January, February and March, whales arrive in Hawaii and have their calves. Tour boats go out daily from many ports along the Kona side of the island from Captain Cook in the south to Kawaihae in the north.

Helicopter Tours:

We have taken the Blue Hawaii helicopter tours both on Kauai and here on the Big Island. They fly out of both Hilo and Waikoloa at the turnoff on route 19 just one traffic light south of Mauna Lani. Currently a tour of just the lava fields near Kilauea flies from Hilo and costs around $200. A tour of just the northern Kohala coast leaves from Waikoloa and costs around $200. The granddaddy of tours does both Kohala and the lava fields but costs around $500.

Driving Tours:

There are many beautiful and interesting driving tours you can take that range from vast desolate lava fields to lush tropical rain forests. We like to drive north on 19 and then 270 to Hawi which is a hippy-like town with many art and jewelry shops and restaurants. At the end of the road is the beginning of the vast eroded valleys that have formed on the oldest part of the island. To get home take route 250 down the spine of the Kohala Mountains to 19 and then west back to Mauna Lani.

You can also see this area by driving north on 19 through Waimea to Honokaa and then taking route 240 west along the north coast and ending at Waipoa Valley overlook. Don’t forget to stop at Tex’s small restaurant for malasadas which are Portuguese pillow shaped donuts sprinkled with sugar and filled with wonderful fillings.

There is a shortcut route across the island called the Saddle Road that runs from near Waikoloa Village to Hilo. Take 19 south to Waikoloa Road (a left turn at the first traffic light), pass through Waikoloa Village and continue until you reach a T in the roads. Turn left on Mamalahoa Road (route 190) and then take a right onto the large road (route 200 – the Saddle Road), and continue to Hilo. You travel right between Mauna Kea and Mauna Loa and pass amazingly huge fields of lava. You could also take the road up to the Mauna Kea visitors’ center but we would not advise driving your own rental car to the top of the volcano.

If you want to spend an entire day on the road, you can travel the whole way around the island next to the coast. Same route as above to Honokaa but continue on 19 south toward Hilo. Be sure to take the side road to Akaka Falls and stop to walk in and take pictures. There are also some scenic drives that take you down from 19 to the coast through thick rain forests. Take route 11 south out of Hilo and follow it up past Volcano National Park. Stop here for views of the crater which might still be venting steam. Continue on 11 around the southern part of the island but watch for a left turn onto S. Point Road. This road takes you down to the coast and the most southern point of land in the US. After visiting this point, go back and continue on 11 into Captain Cook and Kailua-Kona and then follow 19 back north to Mauna Lani. Be sure you start the day with a full tank of gas and several bottles of water for each of you.

Submarine Tour:

For an underwater adventure, visit Kona and take the Atlantis Submarine Tour. You spend about an hour under water diving to up to 100 feet below the surface. You will see lots of different types of fish, coral reefs, junk, and possibly a shark or two.

Boating:

There are numerous opportunities to go out on a boat along the coast between Captain Cook and Kawaihae. Some are sunset cruises, some aim to show you whales and dolphins, some you can snorkel from and see manta rays and colorful fish, and some let you try your luck at catching dinner for the family! We have provided numerous brochures covering boat excursions for you to peruse.

Walking/Hiking Tours:

Hawaii is also a great place to walk or hike. If you take the right just before reaching the Fairmont Orchid you can park and walk out to some ancient petroglyphs through an amazing twisted growth forest. You can also walk along any of the beaches at Mauna Lani as all beaches have public access.

Beaches:

And finally, the beaches. The closest ones of course are at the Mauna Lani and Orchid Hotels but you will have to take your own towels. There is also the “private” Mauna Lani Beach Club that you have access to. Again take your own towels. There are places to eat at all of these beaches. Just north of Mauna Lani is Hapuna Beach State Park. It is probably the prettiest little white sand beach on the island. There is a charge for entrance and parking, lots of covered picnic benches with BBQ pits, rest rooms, and a snack shop. There are numerous other beaches the whole way around the island including a black sand beach at Punaluu off route 11 south of Volcano National Park and a green sand beach at Papakolea even further south near the southern most point.
