Welcome to Morning Glory our Sunrise Villa (Kulalani 2006) where Mai Tai wishes and tropical dreams come true!

Please ... no monthly inquiries.

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.

                                                              Excellence in every detail!

                                                              Carla K.

                                                              Amazing rental for couples getaway or a Family stay. Lots of room, beautiful outside and in.... the most fully equipped kitchen you can imagine. Pools and facilities are immaculate.

                                                              This location is so perfect for all of The Big Island sites. We especially Love the Kohala area & the Quaint charm of the towns along the Hamakua coast. History is rich once you go meandering around the Island!

                                                              Snorkelling at Black Sand (49) beach was perfect this year, our second stay in this Villa. The gracious hospitality of Richard & Nina has not been matched in any other accommodation that we have rented. We would recommend this Villa with 5 stars!

                                                              This is your vacation condo!

                                                              Scott A.

                                                              This is a stunning unit. Light and airy, windows galore, soaring ceilings and beautifully (professionally?) decorated. Massive beds and VERY comfortable. The kitchen has MORE than what you need, as it is better appointed than my own home. Waffle iron? Got it. Margarita pitcher and matching glasses? There. Garlic mincer. Yep. Panini grill. You bet. Four slot toaster. Yes. Chef’s knives. Even spices? Plenty. Just replace if you use and it gets low. Good beach towels, even. The grounds are gorgeous, and hilariously, a’a lava plays a part in the landscaping, which is lush. (How could lava NOT play a role here? Get ready for more lava than you could ever imagine. I know, I know, we ALL know that Hawaii is created from lava flow, but just wait til you see it all! Oy! So much lava! Hah!). The pools (yes, I said poolS) are large and gorgeous. Lots of seating. Fantastic jacuzzis and a lovely workout room, again nicely appointed and immaculate. Best workout room view ever, too. Tweety birds galore And a covered patio/

                                                              Picnic/dining area. Tropical paradise says it all. The owners are truly neat people, having gone to considerable trouble to put together guide book binders on how best to enjoy the condo, grounds and especially the surrounding areas. They are a treasure trove of local knowledge and they share it all with you. Read their informational binders. They worked hard on them and they are great. So well done!

                                                              We used the resort beach that you get access to with the rental of this unit. It is gorgeous. We went often and kayaked on a calm day, getting close enough to whales to hear them softly spouting. Thrill of a lifetime! Saw loads of green sea turtles dozing on the beach. Another thrill! (Took pics but stayed BACK of course). Walked along the coastline on the fabulous coastline hike, going off in both directions. Amazing. We did this multiple times. We ate at the resort’s beach restaurant numerous times. Delightful. Make sure to get mai tai’s!

                                                              I hate to say how much we loved this trip and this amazing condo and surrounding property, because now everyone will book it and I won’t get my spot! Vacation here with these owners and trust me, in spite of all the $$$ you put forth to do this, you will feel lucky to have been able to live in such beautiful surroundings.

                                                              You are expected to clean up before leaving. No biggie.

                                                              Thank you, owners, for sharing your lovely home with two very happy vacationers. Fantastic trip!

                                                              Home away from home.

                                                              Nina and Richard are amazingly conscientious hosts. They manage their home with the utmost care and have tried to anticipate everything their guests might need to feel comfortable. The condo is clean and beautifully decorated. Cooks will appreciate the utensils, small appliances and spices provided. Sports enthusiasts will appreciate that the cable TV has DVR capabilities-they can record that game while at the beach. The grounds at Kulalani are gorgeous and the units are well spaced as to not feel crowded. The unit itself is away from the road and quiet. Highly recommend.

                                                              Beautifully decorated and orderly.

                                                              Richard and Nina, thank you.

                                                              Your home allowed us to feel as if we were in our own. Beautifully detailed, clean, tastefully furnished and appointed with all the necessities of daily life. Your efforts have afforded us the time to just enjoy our vacation.

                                                              Superb townhome on Kohala coast

                                                              We had the great fortune of being able to stay at Nina and Richards fabulous townhome located on the Kohala Coast. This exceptionally well appointed property was a wonderful home away from home for our stay and it is easy to see that Nina and Richard have put a lot of thought into what their guests may want or need if you stay here. We enjoyed using the bbq for dinners on the patio, loved being close to the pools, and used some of the water sports/beach items including snorkel gear, a cooler, and mats. Having access to the beach club, which is just a few minutes away, was a true highlight for us. The private beach was great for snorkeling and we also rented stand up paddle boards one day. The view is so incredible and relaxing, too! From start to finish our stay was amazing. The communication before, during, and after our stay was fabulous and very much appreciated. We can't say enough wonderful things about this place. Simply put, you can't go wrong with Kulalani 2006 and we can't wait to plan our return trip!
