Welcome to Morning Glory our Sunrise Villa (Kulalani 2006)

LOCATION, Location, location! Only one of the few, true poolside units, we continuously re-invest in our villa so it is always fully stocked, always fresh and always immaculate. See our many, many reviews - they truly say it all!


With 1331 sq. ft of thoughtfully designed interior space, our poolside, 2-storey, 2-bedroom, 2-bathroom Hawaiian plantation style villa is the perfect place to relax and unwind.


We care and it shows. From the designer colours to the well-stocked kitchen, Hawaiian bath products and 100% Kona Coffee, we strive to provide the best possible experience for our guests.


Kulalani is located at Mauna Lani, a sun-drenched Kohala Coast resort community north of Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. We love Kulalani ... and we know you will too!


Greet the day with freshly brewed 100% Kona coffee. Watch the sunrise over the 14,000-ft. Mauna Kea from the main floor lanai and upstairs lanais.

Relax on the living room’s Tahitian style sectional. Download a new novel with our free WiFi. Catch the big game. Enjoy a Netflix movie on the 40' Smart, flat screen HDTV. Or, just melt away while listening to one of many Hawaiian music CDs.

The wrap-around main floor lanai is complete with a Viking propane gas BBQ, wet bar, granite countertop, elegant resin wicker dining and conversation furniture, and area rugs for your comfort. Imagine firing up a Hawaiian BBQ for 'al fresco' dining or relaxing on the love seat, reading a book and sipping a Mai Tai while taking in breathtaking views of the mountains and gardens!


The truly fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need - and a few things you didn’t even think you needed - to make preparing meals a breeze. The kitchen is accented with sleek granite countertops, and features top of the line GE Profile appliances. You will be amazed at how well-stocked and well-maintained the kitchen is, with an assortment of gadgets and small appliances. The gathering height table and dining room chairs sit on a beautiful, Hawaiian inspired floral wool area rug, which sets the tropical mood. Place mats, chargers and napkins complete the glass-covered table, while seating four guests comfortably and in style.

If you prefer to snack by the pool there are plenty of outdoor dishes, glassware, cutlery and serving dishes for safe, poolside dining.


The roomy upstairs master bedroom features a Cal king 4 poster bed with rich bedding, and a tropical-inspired ceiling fan to push through the cool trade winds breeze. Doze off while watching the 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player, or listening to the gentle sounds of Hawaiian music. Privacy blinds, luxury linens and a new, ultra-comfortable, hypo-allergenic bed means sweet dreams await.

Step out on to the private lanai and watch the sunrise while sipping a cup of 100% Kona coffee. Relax on the comfortable chairs with ottomans, watch the sun rise over the towering Mauna Kea or take in the amazing views of the Kohala mountains and the Waikoloa Village.

The spa-like master bathroom features tile floors, oversized closet with wood hangers, a spacious, glass-enclosed shower, private water closet and a large, double vanity with granite countertops. A full-size jetted tub is ideal for soaking after a day of sightseeing, golfing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach.

The main floor bedroom, decorated in a tropical coconut palm motif, features a new, organic hypo-allergenic queen bed, area rug, ceiling fan and a 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player.

The adjacent main floor bathroom has tile floors, a single vanity with granite countertop, and a tub with shower and sliding glass doors.

The two bedrooms are located on separate floors and offer the ultimate in privacy. Both bedrooms feature WiFi, alarm clocks, ironing boards and irons. Both bathrooms are stocked with premium Hawaiian bath products, 100% white cotton towels, hair dryers and magnifying mirrors.


Drift the day away on a pool float in the large, lagoon-style pool or get that workout in with a swim in the lap pool. Laze around on one of the lounge chairs by the quiet lap pool, while reading one of your favourite authors or listening to tunes on your iPod. Play a round of golf on one of the two championship courses at the resort. Cap off the day watching the sunset, poolside or soaking away in one of the hot tubs with the push of a button. When you’re ready to come in, dry off with one of our big, fluffy beach towels.

There’s just something special about Kulalani at Mauna Lani. The setting is peaceful and tranquil. At night, the dark night skies make for fabulous star gazing.

With the Mauna Lani Shops nearby, there’s easy access to shopping, dining and entertainment.

About Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk

We live in Vancouver, British Columbia and are avid travellers. Nina is from northern Manitoba while Richard is from Chicago. Richard’s family moved to Edmonton, Alberta in the 70’s and we met in Kenora, Ontario. We eventually made our way to the lower mainland of British Columbia in 1999.

Richard has a background in the banking, auditing and regulatory industries while Nina is a Human Resources Consultant.

In our spare time we enjoy keeping fit with yoga, group cycling and gym work-outs. We also enjoy reading and spending relaxing days on our patio or at the beach and ending the day with a happy hour.

Having grown up in northern climates we spend all our vacation time traveling to sun destinations to escape the cold and rain (and sometimes snow).

We discovered the Hawaiian islands during a cruise in 2005 and in 2008 when we looked to invest in a vacation home Hawaii was the logical choice for us. It was a dream come true when we purchased our vacation home at the Mauna Lani Resort. With each visit we feel more and more a part of the 'aloha' spirit and community.

Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk purchased this townhome in 2008

Why Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk chose Puako

We chose the Mauna Lani Resort because of the fabulous beaches and the abundance of sunshine on the South Kohala coast (an attractive feature for those who live in a coastal rain forest!). The private beach club, a fabulous fitness centre and spa, and a local supermarket are all within a friendly and welcoming community. Although we are not avid golfers, our guests could not be more impressed with the two championship golf courses within the resort.

When we toured the Kulalani resort we fell in love with Kulalani right away because it felt immediately like home. Our villa is spacious and well laid out. The private amenities (2 pools, 2 hot tubs and a fitness centre) at Kulalani are among the best that Mauna Lani has to offer!

We have a superb track record as attentive and responsive hosts and in providing a quality well-stocked home. Just read our many, many five star reviews. We take great pride in our vacation home and it shows. Always fresh and always immaculate; our poolside location can’t be beat.

It is our hope at Kulalani 2006 that you will escape to a relaxing but fun filled vacation. Some say life is good … at Kulalani 2006 we think life is pretty great.

We are delighted to be your hosts during your stay on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Gorgeously Furnished Townhouse

  • 5 of 5

The decor of Nina and Richard's home is "Tommy Bahama", so it feels warm and inviting with Hawaiian decorator accents. The kitchen has everything needed to create delicious meals and the BBQ is great. We particularly enjoyed sitting on the bedroom lanai in the evenings and listening to the rustling of the palm trees and seeing the stars. Definitely a slice of heaven! Their home is immaculately maintained and located near the two pools for easy access. It's definitely an exceptional rental.

Beautiful two story townhome.

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautiful, end unit, two story town home located in the Mauna Lani resort area. Nina and Richard go beyond expectation in making sure the unit has everything you could possibly need to have a wonderful Hawaiian vacation. The unit is exceptionally clean and well maintained. We loved using the card provided to access the private Mauna Lani resort beach, just a 5 to 10 minute drive away. This is a fun swimming, snorkeling, renting a kyak beach. Every morning at sunrise we walked about 15 minutes to Holoholokai Beach Park to watch the surfers. There are plenty of excellent high end restaurants close by but we also shopped at our favorite grocery store in Waikaloa and cooked some nice meals at "home". The unit has an excellent barbecue and the kitchen is stocked with spices and every utensil you might need. We can't wait to return.
