Relax, rejuvenate, and maybe even rekindle a romance in our spacious, two-story townhome villa, Hale’ Honu (House of the Turtle). Our villa, Fairways #1104, is on the western perimeter of the Fairways, an upscale townhome enclave within the Mauna Lani resort. The Fairways is surrounded on 3 sides by the beautiful Francis H I'i Brown golf course.
As of September, 2013, the townhouse has been totally
refurbished with new wood floors on the main level, new
carpeting throughout, and the entire interior repainted in
colorful, tropical hues. Hale’ Honu is the owner’s personal vacation home and is equipped and maintained accordingly with comfortable furniture, nice linens, plenty of towels, a chef appointed kitchen, owner chosen art, and beach equipment in the garage. There is a fantastic dining and outdoor grilling area with a built-in Viking gas BBQ.
Facing the ocean with year-round sunsets and no views of other condos or homes, Hale’ Honu features two unparalleled private lanais with views of towering palm trees and a sliver of ocean in the distance. Very private and serene, the 1,600+-square-foot villa has a traditional Hawaiian decor, but is playful and comfortable.

Hale’ Honu is a great place for a first, second, or 30th honeymoon. The lavish master suite has its own den and outdoor lanai. The expansive view from this lanai overlooks the 12th tee, then north to the Kohala mountains. Sunsets are always visible and most of the year the surf will lull you to sleep. The master lanai boasts a round al fresco lounging bed. There is also a separate area with chairs and a table for cocktails or cards.
And then there is the beach! Hale’ Honu provides access to the Mauna Lani's private beach club. Many consider this one of the best snorkeling beaches on the Big Island. It also offers protected swimming and a great place to build a sand castle.

Aloha! We are a recently retired couple
who lead incredibly busy lives with our 3 dogs in often soggy Seattle.
We chose the Big Island for its natural beauty and culture and its 'laid back' style. We chose the Kohala Coast for its drier, less 'voggy' weather and we chose the Mauna Lani for its amenities and one of the best snorkeling beaches on the Island. On top of that, everyone is so friendly you will feel right at home. Please come stay, relax and enjoy!
