About the property

3 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, Sleeps 7

Come and enjoy the wonders of the Big Island while staying in the comfort of our home. The Fariways is a luxurious gated community in the renowned Mauna Lani Resort on the South Kohala Coast of Hawaii. The South Kohala Coast rests in the protection of the rain shadow of the Mauna Kea Volcano which, at 13,796 feet is the highest point on the Island. As a result, the South Kohala Coast enjoys the most sunshine and the least rain on the Big Island.

The Fairways is a short 5 minute walk, in one direction, to the beautiful Fairmont Orchid and, in the other direction, to the Shops at Mauna Lani. The Orchid offers elegant dining at Brown’s Beach House, or Norio’s Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, or beautiful cocktails and sunsets as the conch is blown, at the Luana Lounge.

At the Shops you will find a gourmet grocery store and you can browse fanciful art galleries, purchase up-to-the-minute resort wear, or relax over a wonderful meal at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Monstera Sushi or the restaurant/lounge on the balcony at Tommy Bahamas.

A beach walk of 20 minutes will take you to the Mauna Lani Resort Hotel just up the coast, where their ocean-front Canoe House restaurant delivers meals and moments you won’t forget.

A 10 minute drive south down the highway will take you to Waikaloa Resort, where the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace offer additional variety for golf, restaurants and shops, while Hapuna and Mauna Kea golf courses are just a 10 minute drive north, with the acclaimed Hapuna Beach a must stop.

The Mauna Lani resort area claims 2 championship golf courses, the North and South courses at the Francis H. I’i Brown Golf Club. When staying with us you are eligible for discounted green fees on either of these immaculate tracks. The welcoming staff will ensure you are well taken care of. Additionally there are acres of walking trails throughout the resort, wandering through lush gardens and black lava expanses. One can examine the Pualo petroglyphs left almost 300 years ago by ancient Hawaiians. The Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles) are numerous here and one can see them sunning themselves on many beaches. The Mauna Lani Resort Hotel raises baby turtles in their saltwater ponds and releases them into the wild when they reach sufficient size, with appropriate pomp and ceremony, on Turtle Independence Day every July 4th. Also there are the Kalahuipua’a Fish Ponds evidencing the sophistication of the ancient Hawaiian aquaculture. Between December and March the Islands are visited by Humpback whales as they stop to deliver and raise calves on their journey between the hemispheres, and they present a show, breaching out of the blue waters between the Big Island and Maui.

The resort is also just down the road from Blue Hawaii who offer helicopter tours of the Kilauea volcano and the mountains, waterfalls and highlands of the Island.

As our guest, you will have access to the Mauna Lani Private Beach Club (see pictures), just a 5 minute drive south within the resort. While the beach is not private (none are in Hawaii) this access entitles you to park and enjoy the lounge chairs and the canopied beach beds, as well as the Napua restaurant/lounge located there. The beach is a protected enclave of sugar white sand, and the snorkeling is amazing. While we supply some water gear, what we don't have can be rented just beside the beach.

Our 1900 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath townhome has been furnished with guests in mind. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and endless cupboard space stocked with everything one might need, with stools at the kitchen bar to allow those not creating magic within the kitchen to bear witness and socialize. Just off the kitchen is the laundry with full size washer and dryer.

The dining table is set for six, but will expand for more. Adjacent is the living room area with a 60” flat screen TV and Bose stereo system with docking station. Free wifi is available. The lanai looks out on the immaculate landscaping of the Fairways resort and pool, and is accessible from either the living room or the master bedroom. It is furnished with dining table and loungers, next to the built-in Viking grill and wet bar.

The master bedroom has a King size bed and 40” flat screen TV. The master ensuite boasts a dual vanity, an oversize jet tub with separate shower and walk-in closet. Upstairs, the 2 bedrooms have 1 King size and 1 Queen size bed and a pull-out twin bed and a full size bathroom.

Just down from our unit is the flawless pool area. Near the pool are landscaped areas with waterfalls and a large hot tub. Overlooking the pool is the complementary Fairways gym and workout facility.

We invite you to come, stay at our home and explore the Big Island. We know you will love it, just as much as we do.

About Carolyn

My husband and I hail from the "north": Edmonton, Alberta Canada. As such we have been frequent flyers over the past decade to various warm locales. Until 2012, our most frequent Hawaii destination was Maui and then on one trip there we took a puddle jumper over to The Big Island and our fate was sealed. We loved the Kohala Coast and purchased our condominium as the best amongst those properties that we saw available for sale in the area. For the first year the property had a long term tenant, who vacated in February 2014. We spent our next visits to the Island outfitting the condo for guests and eventually it was ready in the fall of 2014.

Our picture is not the most flattering, being a wind-blown selfie at the Beach Club, but it is typical of our enjoyment of practically everything we get to do while we are there!

Carolyn purchased this condo in 2013

Best Family Vacation

  • 5 of 5

Thank you Carolyn for sharing your home away from home. You have a beautiful place, and very well equipped. We stayed here for 4 weeks with our family, having such a great time that we didn’t want to leave.

The memories that we came home with will definitely be something we will reminisce for years to come.

We would love to book again in the future and would highly recommend to others.

All the comforts of home

  • 5 of 5

Property was nicely appointed with all of the comforts of home. Kitchen had tons of appliances and dishes and plenty of beach chairs and snorkel equipment to use which was nice. Beds were comfortable and bedrooms were very spacious, each with their own ceiling fan as it can get hot on the island. The pool was nice, quiet and clean and close to the condo. The best part of renting this home was being in the resort area and having access to close by shopping and restaurants, but the best part was the private beach which had some of the best snorkeling I have ever experienced, it was like swimming in an aquarium! Makaiwa Bay is perfect for families with young children and had a nice restaurant on site which was a welcome respite if you didn't feel like packing a lunch. This is a beautiful home in a beautiful area of Muana Lani.

Owner's Response: We, too, love Makaiwa Beach and the clear water. I have seen turtles, an eel, all kinds of fish!

Spectacular Home in Spectacular Complex

  • 5 of 5

We rented 3 different homes in the Fairways on our recent trip with the extended family and this unit was in the best condition out of the 3; it was also equipped with many extras that made our stay that much more enjoyable. First off the Fairways complex is beautiful and meticulously maintained; the location is very central and convenient for a multitude of Big Island activities. The pool area is immediately out the back entrance and is extremely large relative to the size of the overall condo complex; we never had a problem getting chairs for our large group. The condo had everything: great beds, beautiful bathrooms, big TV's and comfortable furniture. The kitchen was extremely well equipped and had many of the grocery staples like olive oil, salt and pepper, spices and condiments just to name a few. The garage was where I was most impressed: 2 boogie boards, 4 tommy bahama beach chairs, tommy bahama umbrellas, coolers and plenty of snorkel gear. I recommend the short 10 minute drive north to Hapuna Beach where we had a great time boogie boarding and hanging out under the umbrellas on the beach; the Fairways private access beach is also nice for snorkeling and eating and drinking at the private restaurant. For fine dining, try the Tommy Bahamas Restaurant a short 15 minute walk or 2 minute drive from the Fairways (amazing food). Would rent this unit again in a heartbeat. Thanks Carolyn.

Owner's Response: Thank you for the lovely comments Paul. I enjoy stocking the kitchen with staples like rice, sugar, flour and pancake mix each time we are there, enough so that I hope it will last for guests until our next visit! And we now have 3 boogie boards for your next visit! :)
