We enjoyed the stay at Fairways at Mauna Lani. The unit was very clean and comfortable. We would like to visit again.
we overall had very nice stay! we love to come to Big island, and will be back, but not to the unit with South Koala Management
pluses: spacious for 4 adults and a baby, very well appointed kitchen, very nice pool never crowded, lush green well kept surroundings, nice lanai to eat breakfast at, access to a baby friendly beach club
pretty good location close to the shops and Fairmount
minuses: lack of cleaning (we found that cleaners left half drank drink left behind, and master bathroom most probably was not finished) and even worse, management company did not care that much (I contacted them right away and after we returned home - no response)
garage very small, no remote, not cleaned at all, very little beach gear, we did park our van in it to shelter from sun, however just so, we all had to get out before parking it
lanai: no shade in the afternoon, no umbrella or some other means of shading, as our granddaughter wanted to play there;
air conditioning unit extremely loud just outside of lanai, to make thinks worse next door unit also in front of lanai;
nothing provided for our baby even thou we asked by email upfront - a passerby neighbour asked us about copious baby gear left in front of the unit about 2 weeks prior(!) so we are assuming that other renters got some and cleaning staff just removed it (needless to say he salvaged it and donated)
we will rent another place this year
This condo is a corner unit in the Fairways group of condominiums. It is in a quiet area with a view of the golf course and distant palm trees silhouetted against the sky; it is set back from this view, which is not as good as its neighbors enjoy in the same condo group, and I think the "Best Views" of the property title is a little overblown. The outdoor patio has a gas grill, like the other units, and a dining table and two lounge chairs, and we ate outside quite a bit. Because of the patio orientation, however, there is no place to sit in the shade in the late afternoons in February and March, a disadvantage, and the air conditioning compressors from this and the adjacent unit are very noisy when one is sitting outdoors. The master bedroom has thin, difficult to draw, curtains. There are large closets (containing plenty of hangars but only one, sashless bathrobe), There is a good kitchen with all the appliances and utensils one might need. the master bathroom is large, although one of the two sinks wasn't working when we were there; this will certainly be an easy to fix issue. In the garage were two portable beach chairs, but that was about all in terms of extras. Considering everything, we had a very good stay here. the unit is the right size for a single couple, although there is a second downstairs bedroom and small bath. We could sacrifice the view for this unit's lower rental fee compared with the larger condos in the area. The South Kohala realty who managed the property were responsive and friendly. We stayed last year in an adjacent unit, and liked the area and this unit enough that we have rented it again for next year, shortcomings and all! This is a beautiful area of the Big Island. the condo comes with free access to the Mauna Lani Beach club, a lovely area to sit, swim, snorkel, and whale-watch. There is a well-stocked grocery store and restaurants a half mile away, and wonderful beaches and restaurants within a half-hour drive. We especially liked Merriman's and the Red Water Cafe in Waimea, The Blue Dragon and the Plantation Grill in the Kawaihae Harbor area, and the local Monstera for sushi and noodles.
We had a wonderful, short stay at this gorgeous unit. Had everything we needed and plenty of room. It IS quite a ways to the beach club, although I walked back from there one day - good exercise and a nice walk. Could not have been easier to check in, etc., even though we arrived "after hours". Everyone was very friendly and helpful. Close to the shops at Mauna Lani, but beware that the grocery there is small and expensive, as is the norm in Hawaii, it seems. If you'll be making a trip into Kona anyway, stock up at Target or whatever while in town. Thanks so much for letting us use your condo - wish we were there right now!!
