Kulalani is a beautifully landscaped, peaceful, private, gated neighborhood situated within the Mauna Lani Resort. It is a 25 minute drive north from Kona International Airport, a 10 minute walk to the closest beach, and a 10 minute walk to the closest grocery store.
Our 1,600 sq. ft. home is perfect for 2 to 4 adults who are seeking total relaxation. It is also suitable for a family of four. ( There is a pack n play available upon request.) The master bedroom (California King) is on the second floor along with a generous en-suite and private lanai overlooking the 5th green of the Mauna Lani North Golf Course and the Kohala mountains. This is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of Kona coffee. The second bedroom (Queen Size) is on the first floor with an adjacent full bathroom. This bedroom has an additional flat screen TV.
Our townhouse is professionally decorated and maintained to the highest standards. The 20-foot ceiling in the living room opens to the kitchen and dining area. The covered, wrap-around lanai overlooks the 5th green of the Mauna Lani North Golf Course. We never tire of the unobstructed mountain view and total privacy. There is a full outdoor kitchen on the 331 sq ft lanai with a Viking BBQ and wet bar.
It’s important to us that our guests enjoy a wonderful vacation experience during their stay in Hawaii. In order to ensure this, all the necessary amenities are provided. We also entrust our Property Manager, John, to take care of our guests. If you have any questions about the Big Island – he’s your guy. John is only a call away. His response time is so fast he has had guests ask if he lives in the neighborhood!
The Recreation Center in Kulalani is one of the best on the Big Island. There you will find 2.5 acres of beautiful gardens surrounding a lagoon pool, Keiki pool, a half-lap adult pool, two Jacuzzis, a fully-equipped fitness center and a gathering pavilion with outdoor kitchen. The gardens in this area are so beautiful that our daughter held her wedding reception in the Gathering Pavilion in 2013. Our home is located directly across from the entrance to the Recreation Center. It only takes 2 minutes to get from poolside to the fridge to replenish the ice in your drink!
Access to the Owner’s Beach Club is available for your use. This private, gated beach has a safe swimming cove, lifeguards, restaurant, and some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island. There are lounge chairs provided so you only need to pack towels and the cooler when you visit.
The Mauni Lani Bay Hotel and the Fairmont Orchid Hotel are located within the Mauni Lani Resort. The nearby 'Shops of Mauni Lani' have several restaurants, art galleries, gift shops, free entertainment, and a full grocery store with deli, bakery, meat and seafood departments.

About John Landers
My husband and I were born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have three daughters who are all attending universities. Over the past 15 years we found ourselves traveling to and from Hawaii and just could not stay away. We always dreamed about owning a place in paradise. Now that we are approaching those 'golden years' that everyone refers to, we thought it would be a good time to make our dream come true by owning a home on the Big Island and traveling back and forth as we have always done.
John Landers purchased this Townhome in 2008
Why John Landers chose Puako
We chose to live on the Kohala Coast because of the white sandy beaches that receive less than 10 inches of rain each year. We love the Hawaiian people, culture, food, weather, and the history. We consider ourselves as residents of Hawaii even though we are not there year-round. We are offering you our home and hope that your family will enjoy the same pleasures that our family does when we are there.
What makes this Townhome unique
Kulalani is a place to heal the mind, spirit, body and soul. This is our typical day in Kulalani: We start our day with local fresh fruit and coffee on the 'garden lanai'. Next, it's to the 'fitness center' for a quick work out or swim. A picnic lunch is quickly assembled and we are off to one of our many 'favorite beaches'. In the mid-afternoon (after we've had enough sand), we return to the 'lagoon pool' with a book and have another swim. 'Happy Hour' typically starts around 4:00 p.m. and gently takes us into the 'sunset' part of the day. Now it's back to the lanai for 'catch of the day' fresh off the BBQ. Retirement to the upstairs lanai is our next stop, where we sip our 'Special Coffees' and assume 'Star Watch' position. Bed time usually comes early so that we can . . . . (brace yourself) DO IT ALL AGAIN TOMORROW!!!

Great Experience! We will rent again!
Wonderful location, all the best beaches and snorkeling spots are nearby, plus much much more!
Also I want to thank John, the property manager for a great experience. He was very responsive, friendly and easy to work with, which makes a big difference in the overall experience.
Spacious condo for westside exploration
We really enjoyed our stay at this spacious and tastefully furnished condo. The space is airy and relaxing. It is close to all the best beaches on the Kona side, which we explored every morning (Waialea, Hapuna, Mauna Kea, 2-step). The pool is only steps away, and we spent every afternoon there relaxing before sunset and dinner. The nearby Foodland market is excellent for picking up a quick lunch and other provisions. John the property manager is super responsive to our inquiries. Would definitely recommend!
Big islands getaway
Clean spacious and well decorated. Great proximity to food, shopping, beaches, and the pool and gym.
House easy to use and spacious. Property mgr accommodating. Would definitely stay again
Excellent property, well maintained and clean. Location very hard to beat.
Perhaps the best way to describe our satisfaction with this property and the Property Manager John Landis is to admit that we have stayed here for periods of 3 weeks to one month each year for 8 years. We will be back again next year.
Very pleasant stay, great vacation rental
We enjoyed staying at the property and would recommend it.
The property managemer John was excellent, he was friendly and very helpful. The swimming pool area is very close by and was a lot of fun with my 5 year old daughter, it had a shallow end and was no deeper than 3 ft. The rental had two excellent cruiser bikes to use, my wife road one every day to her conference at the Fairmont.
The property had an awesome selection of beach supplies that really made it a great rental. They had a couple beach chairs, umbrella, 3-4 sets of snorkel gear (different sizes), cooler, child flotation device, sand toys, 3 boogie boards. We used the beach stuff every day.
We loved the private beach at the Mauna Lani club, we could swim in the ocean with our daughter as there were no breakers, we could lay on the beach, play in the sand, there were several beach chairs and covered lounges to lay on, a nice restaurant right at the beach location, and you can snorkel just off the beach over a nice reef and see lots of tropical fish.
Honestly it was an outstanding rental, so it had only a few issues. The kitchen was well stocked with excellent pots/pans, etc but had the usual rental property dull knives. The king sized bed upstairs was on the fairly firm side, this is a personal preference but I would have preferred a softer bed.
The property is located on a golf course so every morning around 6 AM a lawn mower or something similar started up on the golf course. Not a problem if you're getting up early, which is what we did every day or if you keep the windows closed. The first few days we had a nice breeze so we had the windows open in the morning.
Lastly, the couches in the living room were the one thing we were questionable about before renting, they looked uncomfortable, and pretty much they were as uncomfortable as they look. Not a deal breaker, but that's one thing the renters could improve.
Big Island Vacation
This is a beautiful luxury unit. Clean and decorated in a lovely plantation style. We had 4 adults staying and we had plenty of room and privacy. The kitchen has everything you need if you want to cook as well as a big BBQ on the patio. We loved sitting on the balcony in the morning to watch the sun rise and listening to the birds. When we arrived it was raining and we got lost in the complex, call John and he answered on the first ring and was more than happy to help us with directions. This unit is a short walk to the pool. Shopping and restaurants are close by with the Waiokola Village just a short drive away. We highly recommend trying Lava Lava restaurant for dinner, great food and entertainment.
