Our Villa, which we've named 'Hale Hula' (Hula House), is a custom, professional Interior Designer’s Own Home; it is our home, one that we have opened up to special guests! Hale Hula Villa is Mauna Lani Resort’s NICEST, MOST COMFORTABLE, Most Luxuriously Appointed Villa!
*** Read our 56+ 5-star reviews! ***
You will be paying only 1/3 the cost of the Fairmont Orchid Hotel - with FAR SUPERIOR amenities and value!
BEACHES ARE WITHIN A SHORT WALKING DISTANCE from the condo.
Great care has been taken to select comfortable and luxurious designer furnishings. The works of local island artists and sculptors abound and, of course, there is a beautiful hand crafted 'Hula Lamp'. Your huge kitchen is well stocked with all the gadgets and equipment that you could want. Miles of granite counters and stainless steel appliances will please the chef. We know you will enjoy the outdoor kitchen with Viking gas BBQ grill, rotisserie, and sink, for 'dining alfresco' on the lower lanai after a busy day of island activities. Enjoy the view of the waterfall cliffs, pool and swaying palms.
The upper master bedroom suite is most comfortable, with its pillow-top King bed and custom bedding, Casablanca ceiling fan, separate, adjoining sitting area with queen sofa bed, and a private lanai for enjoying the sunrise over Mauna Kea and bird songs with your first cup of Kona coffee. The master bath is luxurious, with gorgeous local-artist jungle painting, walk in shower, jetted tub, and double sinks with granite counters. The guest bedroom area is also a private suite, having a private bath, two closets, a desk, and a pillow-top queen size bed, also with custom bedding, beneath the Casablanca ceiling fan.
High speed wireless Internet is included throughout, along with 40' LCD HDTV, DVD, and VCR in the living room, 35' Sony LCD TV, and DVD in the master bedroom, and an LCD TV in the guest bedroom. Games, books, and ukuleles (with instruction manual), are there for getting you quickly into the island culture.
Hale Hula Villa is located at The Fairways at The Mauna Lani Resort. Mauna Lani has long been the choice of those in the know, because of its rich traditions and ties to the Hawaiian royalty. Within the resort are two of the finest hotels on the island (Mauna Lani Bay and the Fairmont Orchid), two of the most acclaimed golf courses (Francis H. I’i Brown North and South Courses), The Mauna Lani Sports and Fitness Club, miles of white sand beaches, nine restaurants, including Tommy Bahama, Ruth's Chris, Canoe House, and Brown's Beach House, two award winning spas, a brand new shopping mall for the discerning shopper, and a well-stocked specialty grocery store, all within a short walking/driving distance from Hale Hula. The Mauna Lani Beach Club is private, BUT YOURS TO ENJOY, while staying with us at Hale Hula. The private white sand beach and snorkeling at this beach are spectacular, as the fish abound here, amongst pristine coral formations.
The Fairways at Mauna Lani has unsurpassed lush landscaping, unique Hawaiian architecture, and beautiful aqua blue pools and spa. We chose our Hale Hula Villa for its views of the tropical gardens and the pool area with its waterfalls and swaying palms. Proximity to the pool is just right to provide soothing views and convenience without the noise. The resort offers a fully-outfitted exercise room, located just a few feet away. Don’t forget that BEACHES ARE WITHIN A SHORT WALKING DISTANCE from the condo.
Before you get too comfortable in this lush island paradise, don’t forget that the Big Island offers an abundance of adventures FOUND ONLY ON THIS ISLAND, such as the very active Kilauea Volcano.
As your hosts, we can introduce you to some of our favorite, less “touristy” places, and some inside tips to make the most of those most-visited popular attractions, and restaurant recommendations, while you’re out and about.
By special arrangement, we can provide you a GUEST SHOPPING SERVICE. A guest wishing to have certain items, e.g., groceries or sundries, pre-purchased by Hale Hula management, and stocked in our villa, is a great convenience, eliminating the guests' need to shop for initial supplies or food.
We have a local professional caretaker, a “Hawaiian Representative” for your support and convenience: L. McGoff (phone # furnished with guest booking documentation information). Larry will contact you to greet you upon your arrival. Please read our 8/17/13 guest comment by Aileen (Wayne, Pennsylvania) about Larry: In her review, Aileen said, 'Larry provides a fantastic overview of the property and all amenities, which saves the vacationer time and anxiety.'

My wife Cathy and I live in Idaho (when we're not in Hawaii) with our big black cat 'Mr. Smith'. We have one son, a beautiful daughter-in-law, and two adorable grandchildren. I am a materials Engineer and an avid hiker, mountain climber and river rat. Cathy is an Interior Designer who enjoys building and remodeling houses. We both love adventure travel which really led us to choose Hawaii for our second home. The Big Island is much more than white sand beaches and sunny days (although we love those). Snow capped mountains with observatories that reveal the secrets of the universe and fountaining volcanoes with lava running to the sea are all within a few hours drive. The rich and exotic culture within the framework of the familiar is an intriguing paradox. We love the adventure and think that you will also!
We became acquainted with Mauna Lani when Cathy was doing an installation for a client who had purchased a home in the resort. We were immediately impressed by the relaxed atmosphere so unlike the typical tourist area bustle. It reminded us of the old Hawaii. There is a real spirit of Aloha here. Mauna Lani is committed to educating visitors about the the rich history of the area and exposing them to Hawaiian culture through wonderful 'front porch' dance and music programs. The resort is also dedicated to preserving the historic royal fish ponds and petroglyphs that abound. All this coupled with the outstanding beaches, 2 world class golf courses, tennis, shopping, first class dining, & less than 10 inches of rain a year made it an easy decision to purchase in Mauna Lani!
We like to think that a lot more thought and personal attention to detail has gone into our home than the usual vacation rental. You will be pampered with designer furnishing, high thread count sheets, and beautiful art work, much of it created on the island. The unit is only 3 years old and has all those nice amenities like stainless steel appliances and granite counters. The Fairways is a very peaceful place. It is very uncrowded and guests comment that they often have the gorgeous pool to themselves. The gardens are lush and soothing. Itineraries and travel tips are provided on request.
