The Golf Villas is a luxury gated community nestled on the famed South Course at Mauna Lani. Mauna Lani is one of the world's truly great resorts and has several stunning beaches, two of the world's best golf courses, two top ranked tennis facilities, two 'lap of luxury' spas, historical sites, fine dining and shopping. Mauna Lani is also centrally located for exploring the many wonders and activities of the Big Island -- snorkeling, surfing, horseback riding ATV tours, tropical rain forests, the Mauna Kea Observatory, an active volcano, more sites of historical importance than any of the other Hawaiian Islands. Or you can simply kick back and relax at your own private beach. We dearly love Hawaii and F2 not only contains a variety of guides to the big Island, but one of the finest collections of Hawaii history and stories that you will ever find.
The Golf Villas is a low density community, the most tranquil and pristine condo complex at Mauna Lani with palm trees and tropical gardens surrounding the pool and spa and a gym. If you are looking to relax in luxury, this is the place for you. The Villa is beautifully appointed with well over 1,800 square feet of living space. This is our home away from home. As a result, this is not a sterile mass produced hotel-like experience. F2 is an incredible two story 3 bedroom 3 bath villa with two lanais overlooking the 10th tee on the South Course. The Villa is furnished with an emphasis on handcrafted furniture from local artists and from across the Pacific Rim, using sustainable or reclaimed tropical woods, local art and vintage Hawaiiana. At the same time, we have emphasized luxurious comfort, no thin mattresses, small beds or uncomfortable chairs here. The living room is filled with comfy overstuffed chairs and couch. All the beds (one King and two Queens) have the finest quality mattresses, fine linens, multiple pillows and various types of Hawaiian style quilts. The lanai seating is top of the line Tropitone with a rocker seat perfect for watching the sunsets. If you want to work while you are here, there are two work areas with office chairs, an HP printer and fax as well as wireless internet connections.
The kitchen and baths and outdoor grill have granite countertops, the appliances are all top quality GE Profile stainless and you will find the kitchen and grill are stocked with just about every cooking utensil you could need, including a coffee grinder so you can have the freshest Kona coffee each morning.
The Villa contains three HD plasma TV's (including a large screen in the living room, high quality Onkyo and Atlantic Technology stereo, two Boston acoustic stereo CD clock radios and every bedroom also has a TV and DVD player. There is also a VCR (for those of you that still travel with videos!) The Villa is stocked with DVD's and CD's including some of our favorite Hawaiian music as well as books and board games.
In the covered garage you will find two bicycles, four beach chairs, a beach umbrella and some snorkel equipment. Your stay at F2 also provides you with access to the beautiful pristine Mauna Lani Beach Club, discount golf on the North and South courses, and tennis matching assistance.
Finally we know what it is like trying to plan the “perfect” vacation. And we want to help you. When you stay at F2, think of us as your personal concierge service. If you have never been to the Big Island, we would love to help you plan your trip. If you are a return visitor, we would be delighted help you to discover what is new on the Island and make this the best Hawaiian vacation you have ever experienced.
Golf Villa F2 is our home away from home, filled with Hawaiiana, books, music and Island treasures. We have been coming to the Big Island a couple of times a year for 10 years, and this is our favorite place. We hope you will enjoy your stay!
Catherine Tripp purchased this condo in 2007
The Mauna Lani Resort is the perfect place to lay your cares down, and enjoy the beauty and luxury of a place built for relaxation. Mauna Lani Bay is perfect for snorkeling and sunning. The Golf Villas have all the amenities (jacuzzi, pool, exercise room, etc.) and F2 is spacious and comfortable. We had a great time furnishing and decorating our home-away-from-home, and enjoy hosting guests for sunset cocktails and pu-pu's.
The Lanai has fully equipped grill, load up the fridge with all your island favorites, or load up the car (you have your own garage) and take the 5 minute drive to Mauna Lani Bay. The sandwiches and beverages are great. We have a parking pass to the beachside lot. The Shops at Mauna Lani include a full grocery, some great restaurants, and fun shopping. At the Tennis Shop, you can rent bikes for as long as you wish, giving all guests the freedom to roam at will. Black Sand Beach is a 3 minute drive away and quite a treat, biking and walking paths abound, and the scenery is breathtaking.
My family and I really enjoyed our stay at F2 for a week over New Years. You are literally minutes away from amazing beaches and restaurants. The condo is clean, comfortable, fully stocked, and very nicely decorated. The golf villas are nice and quiet and surrounded by scenic views. We spent our days exploring the island, and looked forward to relaxing at the condo after a fun filled day. We would definitely consider staying here again.
This residence is amazing, everything you need is inside this house. The furniture is very comfortable and so are the beds. The house backs up to the 10th tee box of the Mauna Lani south golf course.
I would definitely stay here again
The property was amazing (nice and clean). Wonderful and peaceful neighborhood. We all loved this house.
This is our 3rd stay at this townhouse. We love the location-close to the beach and shops. The fact that each BR has its own Bathroom was especially appealing. It has all the amenities and we feel right at home. Catherine Tripp is very helpful and accommodating .
If you are deciding among VRBO choices in the same price range, be sure to choose this unit! We found it the ideal spot to enjoy the Kohala Coast.
It is large, well furnished, and pleasantly decorated with local art. The covered lanai has views of the golf course. The full kitchen has everything you need if you want to eat in. The owners have thoughtfully provided binders with tips on the best of all the local area has to offer, including directions.
This golf villa is 3 minutes by car from the Mauna Lani clubhouse, with the Mauna Lani and Fairmont resort shopping and restaurants just slightly further. It has a one car garage. For those who like walking, which we do, coastline access and two nice beaches are within about 10 minutes on foot. Both beaches have parking if you prefer to drive. One of the beaches will provide access to Cabanas, etc. through the Beach Club access card the owner generously provides. Several other beaches are nearby, with decent snorkeling. The development's nice pool, hot tub, and work out room (not elaborate-just some space for yoga and universal weight apparatus) are right out the front door and across the street.
We had a great experience here and would love to come back.
F2 was a wonderful place to stay! Comfortable, clean, & beautiful. Centrally located to everything we wanted to see - including great access to the Beach Club and Black Sands 49 beach. Saw manta rays at Black Sands both times we were there... Incredible!! Really enjoyed our stay and couldn't have asked for a better place!!
