Overview

Mauna Lani Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Story Townhome, 1646 Sqft Indoors With 2 Lanais In A Lush Tropical Setting

The Fairways: Just 20 minutes north of Kona Airport in the beautiful Mauna Lani Resort and ideally situated between the Fairmont Orchid Hotel and the Shops of Mauna Lani and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. The Fairways is an impeccably maintained luxury gated community on over 20 acres adjacent to the Francis H. Brown North Golf course, one of two championship golf courses within Mauna Lani (your stay includes discounted guest golf rates at both).

Amenities at the Fairways include a large BBQ pavilion, large and luxurious free form swimming pool, spa, waterfalls, and a fitness center with a/c.

Hale O' Honu'ea: Stay in this beautifully furnished 2 bedroom townhome, with polished granite and stainless steel gourmet kitchen, 2 1/2 baths and 1 car garage and relax in over 1600 square feet of indoor living in a spacious open layout.

The tranquil Lanai off the main floor includes a wet bar, Viking grill/rotisserie and dining seating for 6.

The floor plan here is ideal for privacy and comfort with both bedrooms upstairs away from the main living area and on far ends of the home, each with an ensuite full bathroom.

The master suite includes a den sitting area, ensuite with jacuzzi tub and private lanai that together with the downstairs lanai extends the living space to over 2000 square feet. Enjoy the view of the naturalized golf course landscaping and the 11th green of the north course in the distance.

Your stay at Hale O' Honu'ea includes a gate pass to owners parking at the semi-private Beach Club with ocean-side restaurant, coral reef snorkeling and white sand beach. Covered cabanas and sunbathing chairs are on the beach for guests of property owners only, so all you need to bring are the towels, boogie boards and sand toys that we provide and your sunblock!

Water enthusiasts can rent stand-up paddle boards, surf boards, outriggers and other equipment adjacent to the beach or even join a snorkel, whale-watch (in season), scuba dive, or sunset cruise.

Within Mauna Lani you can explore the lesser known 49 Black Sand Beach or the one of the five white sand beaches and waterfront, the historic petroglyphs and ancient fish ponds, and enjoy the free cultural activities offered at the Shops of Mauna Lani. Meet turtles swimming in the ocean, sunning on the rocks or those that are part of the Mauna Lani honu preservation program.

Enjoy discounted guest rates at both the North and South Frances H. I'i Brown Golf Courses.

Exploring beyond Mauna Lani? We have provided cooler bags, beach chairs and guide books (and are happy to give you more ideas if you ask).

Minimum stay 5 nights/7 nights during holiday season. This is a no-smoking, no-pet property.

About Jeff and Sonia

My wife and I have a young family and we have been visiting the Hawaiian islands for almost a decade to escape the cold winters (and even the cool summers) of the Pacific Northwest. We are both competitive athletes and have done dozens of marathons and triathlons all over the world including Ironman distance races. In fact, we first found the Fairways at Mauna Lani racing the Honu 70.3.

We have 2 young children and enjoy traveling anywhere we can enjoy good food, good weather, different cultures - and still play in the outdoors.

Jeff and Sonia purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Jeff and Sonia chose Mauna Lani

We found ourselves returning to Mauna Lani more than any place else in the tropics. What we love most about Mauna Lani is that it offers privacy away from the crowds elsewhere yet offers the convenience of close by restaurants and shops when you want them. It has beautiful calm waters for safe snorkeling, waves (when you want them) for surfing, and nature abounds with the turtles, coral reef, dolphin and whale sightings. There are miles of running and cycling right out the door.

We stayed at other properties within Mauna Lani but feel that the grounds, large free form pool, spa and location of the Fairways are the perfect combination of private yet convenient to the amenities of the rest of the resort as it is close enough to walk to the Fairmont Orchid and Shops of Mauna Lani.

What makes this townhome unique

We chose Hale O' Honu'ea because of all the floorplans we've stayed in Mauna Lani, it suits our family and friends the best. All bedrooms are upstairs which makes us feel safe; the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the townhome so they feel private; each has it's own ensuite bathroom for convenience; the open floor plan of the main living space and windows on the upper floor allow the island breeze to move through.

We've made updates to make it even more comfortable and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Our daughter named 'Hale O' Honu'ea', Home of the Hawksbill Turtle. In conjunction with Oahu's Sea Life Park, Mauna Lani Resort raises honu (the green sea turtle) releases them when mature, helping the comeback of honu. The native Hawksbill turtle, or Honu'ea, is more endangered and the Big Island is one of it's few nesting places. Our family hopes someday to see the Honu'ea frequenting the waters of Mauna Lani too.

We are transitioning to our condo to be more 'green'. We've installed ceiling fans and screens to enjoy the island breeze. We provide personal amenity dispensers that reduce plastic bottle waste of typical hotel 'travel size' products. We are converting to CFL and LED lighting. We've chosen BPA-free acrylics for outdoor drinkware. We provide environmentally responsible detergents and will continue to transition to like products throughout Hale O' Honu'ea. We admit that we have far to go, but we feel these small steps are all in the right direction to protect the natural beauty of this special place.

Perfect trip

  • 5 of 5
Perfect time to leave the freezing and wet weather and escape to warm sun. The temperature was just right - the condo would get warm warm during the day while we were out, but every afternoon we opened all the windows and doors and enjoyed how the breeze cooled the condo off. We had to remember to use door stops on the front and bedroom doors or the breeze moving thru the condo could slam them shut! We had to use the AC our first night as we arrived after 10pm and had to cool the place off, but after that didn't need it. I suspect the neighbors did the same as we didn't hear AC units running while we sat out on the lanai for breakfast and dinner. One drawback to sleeping with the windows opened: having the tropical birds wake you up with their morning songs. We didn't mind though - we put that down as part of Hawaii life.

The condo was well equipped: I cook and it was nice to have quality forged steel knives, a great blender for making the kids tropical fruit smoothies, extra Corelle dining dishes and acrylic glasses so we could dine on the lanai with out worrying about breaking dish ware, and a stainless steel carafe to keep coffee hot. We especially liked the water infuser pitcher: we had fruit water all week like they offer in the lobby of 5 * hotels. I want one if these for home!

Set up worked well for our family of 5: grandma and our oldest slept in the room with twin beds, and our youngest slept on the twin bed in the den. I fell asleep putting him to bed one night so even though it's a day bed, it's comfortable!

Loved all the books in the condo on Hawaiian fish, trees, flowers, and language. It was fun to look through them and identify what we saw. My mom doesn't swim, so she wandered the grounds of the Fairways identifying the many flowers and trees.

Great relaxing Townhome

  • 4 of 5
The town home was exactly what we were looking for and provided us with great accommodation for our stay on the Big Island. Jeff and Sonya did a great job in communicating to us all the features of the unit and also provided us with local shopping, restaurants and activities. We enjoyed our stay and hopefully will have the chance to return again soon!

Piece of paradise

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful time at Hale O'honu'ea. The condo was spotless and very comfortable, we felt at home as soon as we came. Lots of space. We love to cook and found everything we needed in the kitchen, although the pans are a bit scratched. The barbecue is amazing ! Not having to bring our soap and shampoo was very nice, all the products were of very good quality. Our children were very happy with the boogie boards and sand toys. The beach club is perfect for children and snorkeling. We tried the pool a couple of times but we much prefered spending our time at all the wonderful beaches.
Sonia has been wondeful, very available, always gave a very fast response to any problem or question we had. She really went out of her way to make sure that we were happy and comfortable.
I would gladly recommend the rental to friends and family.

Lovely and Peaceful

Having owned and recently sold my own condo at the Fairways after 8 years, it was a pleasure to stay at this lovely unit owned by Sonia and Jeff. They are wonderful people to work with and you will have a great time in this well appointed and peaceful unit.

Loved these accomodations at Mauna Lani Fairways

  • 5 of 5
When previous accommodations failed to materialize, Sonia and Jeff graciously offered my friends and I (5 women, girlfriend trip) to use their newly purchased unit. Unit was very clean, kitchen well stocked, even spices and baking dishes; also had use of garage, beach chairs and boogie boards, lots of beach towels. Particularly nice was the shampoo, conditioner and soap dispensers in the showers. The grill on lanai was so convenient also. The pool at Fairways was a short walk from condo and is the nicest pool I have encountered in my previous stays at condos in Waikoloa Beach resort. The small gym room was well fitted with equipment. The small grocery at the Shops at Mauna Lani is quite reasonable and offers some very good prepared foods. There are many activities offered at the mall, including two Hawaiian shows equivalent to those I have seen at a Luau, lei making classes, food demonstrations, all free. Very interesting historical sites are just north of the resort and the Café Pesto at the harbor was one of our favorite eateries for their unusual pizzas. A visit to the Hamakua nut factory is a must just north of harbor. Be sure to get the free booklets offered at airport and sightseeing stands and check out all the great things there are to do on the Big Island. I highly recommend the swim with dolphins trip from harbor just north of Kona for an amazing experience of ocean snorkeling with dolphins. Loved the private beach club access card provided with the condo, which made easy parking for short walk to beach. Sonia was readily available for any questions about the condo and resolved any issues promptly. So glad to have been able to experience this great resort area.
