About Laura

I grew up on the island of Maui, but had never been to the Big Island of Hawaii until roughly 5 years ago...and I fell in love! My husband and I (along with our good friends the McDaniels) decided we just had to buy our 'home away from home' on the island of Hawaii! We found just the perfect place in the Mauna Lani Resort; at The Fairways at Mauna Lani. A tranquil and beautiful resort property with views of the volcanoes (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Kohala) and the rock lava waterfall at the beautifully landscaped free-form pool. We feel such peace when on the island, and we know you will too! Laura (pictured) and Phil Catalon/Dolores and Randy McDaniel

Laura purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Laura chose Kohala Coast

We bought our 'home away from home' on the Big Island of Hawaii because we fell in love with island itself. It truly is a beautiful and magical place! The island is large and offers diverse landscapes, terrains, and climates...from the sunny and dry Kona Side to the green and lush Hilo Side. Five volcanoes, gorgeous beaches, and endless beauty abound on this island!

What makes this townhome unique

We have designed out townhome to be welcoming, relaxing, and elegant all at the same time. We have given special attention to the comfort level of all the furnishings...plush fabrics, teak woods, and original Hawaiian artwork fill our townhome. Our family is our number one priority (and we know yours is too!), so we have provided some 'extras' that make travelling with the family (old and young alike) a little easier.... We have four new bicycles for you to use around the resort, 2 razor scooters for the kids, snorkel gear, boogie boards, and tons of beach paraphernalia, pool toys, a highchair and port-a-crib if traveling with a little one, and we keep a fully stocked kitchen (non-perishables) so that you don't have to spend your vacation dollars on oil and seasonings! Our townhome is located within walking distance to the beach, shops, and walking trails...golf is only a minutes drive away! We LOVE it here...and are confident you will too.

Lots of TLC and "extras" at this beautiful Hawaii condo! Furnished with your comfort in mind. The furnishings are classy, the beds are to-die-for, the kitchen perfectly stocked, the view divine and the total experience an unforgettable one. The owners of this unit have not left anything out in planning for your perfect vacation and, believe me, you'll be back! (Take a trip to the botanical gardens - a "must-see")

Perfect Family Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We spent five glorious nights in this lovely home and we didn't want to leave. It was a perfect spot for our family vacation. We definitely hope to come back. The house is so comfortable and well stocked. Lots of thoughtful touches. The location to the pool is fantastic - and then we used the bikes to get around and we used the boogie boards and snorkel gear to enjoy the beaches. Honestly it was the best vacation ever. My husband and two college age daughters loved it!

- One word needed only... PERFECT -

  • 5 of 5

Aloha

-Location - PERFECT! We don't normally stay in this area but moving forward this will be the spot!

-House - PERFECT! We truly felt like it was just like our home! Very clean and well kept.

-Amenities in house/beach gear - PERFECT! Stocked with so much. Take a look in cabinets before you grocery shop! We left items for the next traveler's as I'm sure the traveler's before us did. Beach gear was great to have as well. You can rent items from 'Uncle's Gary shack' too right next to Owners Beach Club beach. (SUP boards etc.)

- Owners Beach Club - PERFECT! One of my kids favorite parts of the trip!

- Shopping center/Grocery close by - PERFECT! Conveniently located. Leisurely stroll from the house. Everyone is very nice and will recognize you after a couple visits with a smile!

- Fairmont - PERFECT! Nice walk and more great options restaurant/pools etc. The massage I had was heavenly! (choose outside over waterfall!!)

- Owners - PERFECT! Very easy to work with and had great suggestions!

We will return... soon we hope and stay even longer!

Perfect home away from home

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I enjoyed a fabulous week at this beautiful, comfortable, extremely well-located property. We enjoyed being able to shop at the local grocery and prepare meals in the well appointed kitchen. We also enjoyed walking to the Fairmont and taking a short drive to the Beach Club. We could easily have had others join us there and will likely try to do so when we return.

Absolutely outstanding rental condo

  • 5 of 5

We have been staying at this condo for several years and it truly has become our home away from home. I am sitting on the upstairs lanai overlooking the pool as I write this review. . This condo is wonderful ... It is beautifully furnished and meticulously maintained. It is soooo comfortable here! There is a fully equipped kitchen, washer and dryer, an awesome master suite, hi def TV, a video game console, an MP3 docking station and a Viking grill on the lanai - everything you need to help you relax and enjoy your stay.

Pool access is literally steps away from the lanai. The pool is huge and also has a big spa surrounded by a waterfall. There are bikes available as well as snorkel gear ... You have to snorkel at the owners beach club ( less than 5 minutes from the condo). There is an amazing variety of fish in crystal clear water. We regularly swim with turtles and see new varieties of fish almost every time we go. Some of the best snorkeling in the islands is right here!

Mauna Lani is a great resort with terrific amenities and a relaxed atmosphere. There is a coffee shop and grocery store walking distance as well as several restaurants and shops. Play the two great golf courses in Mauna Lani.

We catch sunset every evening at one of several nearby beaches. All in all it is pretty hard to top this condo.

FIVE star PARADISE on the Big Island!

  • 5 of 5

Everything you could wish for in this luxurious five star town home! Fully stocked kitchen. The beds were VERY comfortable-I slept like a baby:) Great view of the pool. Morning coffee on the upstairs (master bedroom) lanai was a real treat. High quality bikes that were better than the ones we rented elsewhere the year before. Very well maintained, quiet complex. Awesome pool and hot tub for the days we just wanted to take it easy. The owners were very attentive, friendly, and easy to contact. Hated to leave, but I'll be back! Thanks for everything!!
