Review Submitted Date of Stay August 17, 2013

What an incredible vacation spot! We love this place! The pictures on the website don't even capture how beautiful this place is.

Review Submitted Date of Stay May 02, 2013

Wow, What a place. This was the first time for us to visit Hawaii with our young family, and this place is the perfect fit. You clearly thought of everything and your condo is beautiful.

My husband and I stayed with our 5 year old and 9 month old at this property. It is definitely kid friendly (we only had to put a few smaller items out of reach from an exploring 9 month old!) and our daughter loved having her own bedroom with a bathroom and a window seat. This was probably the most well stocked and well equipped vacation rental we have ever stayed at - down to little swimmer diapers under the sink, laundry detergent in the laundry room and an ice maker on the fridge

While the Big Island is always incredible, our recent trip to Mauna Lani was truly one of the best because of our gorgeous accommodations in Jan's Fairway condo. The pictures and descriptions can't capture the quality, ambiance and location of this property. The accommodations are well decorated with attention to detail (pictures, furniture, kitchen amenities, electronics including TV, Music, etc) and you truly feel like you are at a 'home away from home'. Jan helped with the details of our stay and so many great suggestions for the surrounding area including food, beaches and activities. We've been to Mauna Lani many times without our children and the condo proved to be a perfect combination of luxury and location. We easily fit our family of four with room for at least two more if necessary. I highly recommend this property and we booked our trip for next year BEFORE we left the last day. Truly a paradise made even better by the accommodations and hospitality!

4/9/09 'This is a great spot. I have rented through VRBO many times and this home is one of our favorites, well equipped, clean and a great location.

Walk to Orchid Beach or use of private beach club, cooler, beach toys available

Kid friendly



LET US SPOIL YOU in this beautifully decorated home in a Hawaiian Paradise. Travertine tile floors throughout the downstairs, granite & stainless kitchen stocked with the gourmet chef in mind. We have a Viking gas barbecue on the lanai. There are lots of private areas for reading and contemplation of your tropical surroundings: a custom built window seat in the guest bedroom with a view towards the golf course and a comfy sitting room off the master bedroom looking out towards the pool.

Don't confuse our home with the small 2 bedroom units at Mauna Lani Fairways. OUR HOME IS THE LARGER FAIRWAYS 2 BEDROOM MODEL (approx.1700 sq.ft.) that has all the conveniences you will need including washer/dryer, Jacuzzi tub, and private baths in both guest and master suites.

For our guests who want to REMAIN CONNECTED, there is WI-Fi internet access throughout the house. 3 TVs, 2 DVD and Streaming Ne-Flix. We also have a CD/Ipod set-up in our living room so you can bring your favorite music.

WE HAVE ONE OF THE BEST LOCATIONS AT THE FAIRWAYS AT MAUNA LANI. From the downstairs lanai looking out towards the pool, enjoy the lovely swaying palm trees, lush green lawns, and tropical plants while dining in semi-privacy as our home is tucked away from the pedestrian traffic areas. From the second floor balcony, enjoy morning coffee while gazing at the beautiful Kohala mountains. Our North/South orientation provides protection from the famous trade winds off the mountains while delighting in outside living. ...and our location is distant from the large lava fields that encapsulate the golf course units.

YOU WON'T ARRIVE TO AN EMPTY CUPBOARD. We cheerfully provide basic staples. If you are arriving late, our Property Manager can arrange to have AM breakfast supplies waiting for you. If you are a new visitor to our island, let us be your remote concierge. We collect many suggestions about restaurants and excursions that we are happy to pass on to you.

Our guests have SPECIAL ACCESS TO THE HOMEOWNERS BEACH club that includes a full service restaurant and new cabanas along the beach. This is a wonderful snorkeling area for beginners and veteran snorkelers.

Stroll to the world famous Orchid hotel for evening poupus or walk to our nearby shopping center each morning for a morning coffee at our neighborhood market. Everything you need is at your fingertips for a relaxing vacation experience

About Jan Gilman

My father fell in love with Hawaii while working here in the 1960s. It became my parent's very favorite vacation destination. I have wonderful memories of vacationing on the Big Island with my entire family which soon included my own children too. My parents both died in 2003. I was grateful to be able to purchase our home away from home in 2006. Now my husband and I can pass on the legacy of family times in Hawaii to our grandchildren. We look forward to providing our guests with the same spirit of Aloha which we have enjoyed in this beautiful area.

Jan Gilman purchased this condo in 2006

Why Jan Gilman chose Kohala Coast

We loved the Fairways complex because of the spaciousness between units. We liked the townhouse design that avoids the neighbors above or the neighbors below. Our condo is built so well we never hear the neighbors next door. We find our particular unit to have a good deal of privacy as we look across spacious lawn and tropical gardens. Our three new plumeria trees will provide shade and more privacy as they grow.

What makes this condo unique

You can choose to have the relaxation of a lifetime in our wonderful home at Fairways or to be busy 24/7. Spend the day with a book gazing at the Pacific Ocean on the beach at our private beach club. Choose from a varied menu of food and drinks at the restuarant on site. OR, make a picnic, pack the cooler, bring the boogie boards, beach toys and hiking shoes and spend the day at the beach snorkeling, playing in the ocean and taking off from the beach to hike the fisherman's trail.

Golf at our two beautiful courses and enjoy guest of owner rates.

Shop at the Mauna Lani shops, and have dinner at restaurants ranging from Four Season's grill, to Blue Dragon, and Bamboo. Eat at the restaurants right on property such as Tommy Bahama's or Ruth Chris Steak House.

Travel far afield. Hike the coast or the cool mountain trails, see the volcano flowing into the sea at night, enjoy a once in a lifetime experience of sunset at the top of 13,000 foot Mauna Lani, or learn about Hawaiian history at the City of Refuge.

Once back home, enjoy dinner on our lanai fixed with local food from our farmer's markets and fresh fish markets.

Find information about all these wonderful activities in our notebook and tour books in your home away from home at 1703 Fairways, Mauna Lani.



Guestbook comments from the owner

This morning I was thinking longingly about sitting on the patio at your place in the Mauna Lani. It made me realize that I hadn't thanked you and told you what a great time we had. It was the first extended trip Holly and I have taken without kids since our daughter was born 8 years ago! It was perfect. We love to cook and spent each morning making a great breakfast and sitting on the patio. Explored the island more than we've done in the past. We got to snorkel together, rather than trading off so someone could be with the kids on the beach. All in all it was terrific. Thanks for making it available. We'd love to do the trip again and will check back to see if you are still renting.

Luxurious Digs

  • 5 of 5

From the moment one steps in the front door to this clean, spacious condo, it's obvious that the owner of this unit cares about quality. From the high end pots and pans to the modern, new appliances, this unit delivers comfort and convenience. The location is close to the pool, and it's also an easy walk for a drink and sunset at the Orchid Hotel or, if one is so inclined, to take a morning walk to a nearby strip mall which has a nice coffee shop and grocery store. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay!

A Perfect Vacation Home and a Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to Hawaii and actually our first time trying out VRBO. Bottom line...what a wonderful experience. The owner and the property manager are very pleasant people. The townhouse is beautiful and comfortable, it really feels like staying at home. It is a much better alternative to a hotel or an overcrowded resort. The kitchen was perfect, with colorful plates that just brightened up the table. I have to say that all the furniture not only looks great, But it's also very comfortable, including the patio furniture. Love the dining table! By the way, there is a small grocery story a couple minutes away that has just about all the basics, it’s very convenient. In the same shopping area, there are various events in the evenings throughout the week, so check out their events calendar if you’re interested.

The gated community in general is very clean and the grounds are meticulously manicured. It is a pleasure to go out and stroll around. The pool area is very well maintained with beautiful landscaping, pergolas and water features. It’s a bit of walk, but the coast is within walking distance, especially if you’re looking to get some exercise. The private beach access is wonderful, although I’d recommend just packing up the kids and beach toys in the car and driving.

The Waikaloa area truly is amazing. During our week long stay we explored quite a bit around the island and had a good mix of weather. Waikoloa must be a small micro climate because while it was cloudy or raining in other parts on the west side of the island, this area was sunny and warm. It’s a beautiful location. And one week is definitely too short, to explore the west coast. We’ll just have to come back again...Thank you for this opportunity. It was a real pleasure.

Our Wonderful Big Island Visit

  • 5 of 5

We've been to Hawaii many times, but our most recent trip was the best yet. No small part of that was our very comfortable 13 night stay at Jan and Michael's wonderful townhome. The Mauna Lani resort area is amazing, with lots of places to walk and explore. Can't wait to return someday!

Amaizing vacation!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four really enjoyed our first stay on the Big Island. Jan, the owner, has created such a welcoming, tasteful and relaxing property here at the Fairways. We have rented vacation homes several times in various locations and have never had such a comfortable stay. Larry, the property manager was very helpful, providing us with thorough information about the unit and the resort. The unit is very clean, stylishly furnished and has everything you might need. Its close proximity to shops and restaurants makes it ideally located. Our children loved the Fairways pool and the Mauna Lani Beach Club - such beautiful and calm waters! We spent our days snorkeling, swimming and playing at the beach. It was great. Our beach trips were made even better thanks to the soft beach towels, children's sand toys and boogie boards. We usually eat out while on vacation, but thanks to Jan's wonderfully equipped kitchen, we enjoyed using it and eating the majority of our meals on the lanai. We hope to return soon and will definitely recommend this property to our friends and family. Thank you Jan for a wonderful vacation!

Excellent Vacation Place

  • 5 of 5

We have vacationed in Hawaii for many years but we tend to always return to the big island because of the serenity. My husband and son enjoys playing golf at the nearby courses and return in the afternoon for a nice relaxing meal on the beautiful lani. The condo is large and fully furnished with everything that you need for a wonderful vacation away from home. Our son (from college) was vacationing with us and there was PLENTY of room where we didn't feel like we were crowding each other. I usually choose a rental by the size of the kitchen, bedrooms and bathrooms and this place was a definite 5 stars! The pool is quiet, clean and relaxing. Being able to start and end your day on the lani is a definite bonus! Jan and her manager, Larry, are attentive and a pleasure to work with. Larry was there to greet us and provide all the information (ie, operation of fans, air conditioning, etc) that we needed to start off our stay without any problems. We certainly will return to this unit in the future.
