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.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at F2 Golf Villa! This was our second time renting at F2. It is well equipped. Plenty of paper products - paper towels, toilet paper, Kleenex, & napkins for our 3 week stay. Lots of spices too. Thank you Catherine and Jeff for working with us to make this trip happen!

Beautiful decor in a super spacious and very well equipped accommodation with everything you need and more. We enjoyed the Hawaiin music cd's a lot. Wonderful outdoor patio and kitchen. Loved having the three bedrooms and three bathrooms. The dishwasher didn't clean the dishes so we just washed them by hand. The bbq propane ran out so we tried to switch it for another tank in the garage but it was empty as well. We tried phoning the local contact and there was no answer but we only had one day left so we didn't worry about it and just left a note so these issues could be dealt with. The pool was too cold to use which was dissapointing but not anything the owners have control over. The little shopping center was fun to wander around and the grocery store is quite well stocked and reasonably priced. The owners were great to deal with. Everything was straightforward and they responded quickly to my emails. The accommodation is exactly as described and we were not disappointed.
Our family really enjoyed our stay at the Mauna Lani Golf Villas. The unit we stayed in had everything we needed to make for a perfect, relaxing vacation on the Big Island. With the location, the amenities of the unit, and the Mauna Lani area one could not ask for anything more! We loved it!!!
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
