About Elaine Christianson

Listed in March 2011 on HomeAway. Peter Messmer, owner, also known as 'Peter Palm' for his wonderful palm nursery (now in ownership of others), moved to Hawaii via mainland U.S. from Switzerland. Elaine Christianson, is a real estate Broker, specializing in North and South Kohala properties since 1987. (see website: She is the owner of Hawaii Palm Properties, Inc. and

can assist you if you are searching for a place of your own! She was born in Edmonton, Alberta. and has family in Vancouver, BC, Ontario, Washington and California. Peter and Elaine came to Hawaii in 1984 (from Zurich) for vacation, and never left! (of course we still travel a lot off-island).

Elaine Christianson purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Elaine Christianson chose Kohala Coast

When we moved to Hawaii in the early 80's we had a Tennis membership at the Mauna Lani and really enjoyed the tennis, beach, spa, and restaurants. The Beach Club was our son's playground in elementary school time, and now they continue to return here for vacations with our grandchildren!

What makes this townhome unique

We feel this is the most appealing of the Kohala Coast Resort environments. Mauna Lani resort is environmentally conscious and in addition has one of top rated Spas in the world.There are so many restaurants in the area to visit: our pick of the oceanfront ones 'Hale Kai' or Browns Beach House at the Fairmont Orchid, and LavaLava at the Waikoloa Beach Resort area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We just rented this beautiful condo at #1804 for the fifth time and are very happy with the amenities, and also the free phoncalls back to Canada. As foodies, we are excited about the increasing number of great restaurants in the immediate neighborhood, some directly in the sandy beach. We have children and this condo is perfect for that! Great for days at the pool or the beach with all the great beach toys available! We'll be back!

Perfect for us

  • 5 of 5

Very comfortable and well appointed unit. Had everything we needed and clear directions and guidance on check in and out, use of pool and beach, and local surroundings. Easy transaction from start to finish. Development is quiet, beautiful, and well maintained with very nice pool and spa just a short walk out the lanai. Development is also situated just a short drive from great public beaches and other attractions. Hope to return and will try to stay at this development and in this unit if we do. Thanks for a great visit!

Relaxed Hawaii

  • 5 of 5

The unit was located in a very convenient place and was well equipped. We had 3 adults stay there and it was fine. Would have liked a TV in the master bedroom but that is a minor point. Overall it was a very good unit. Great BBQ and close to the pool. The beach club was awesome.

Nothing missing here!!

  • 5 of 5

From the location to the fine details, Elaine's place has it covered. Seriously, I love the little Q-tips and make up remover pads, extra paper towels and TP (We stayed in a place in Waikaloa that we actually had to go buy toilet paper after our one roll ran out.) Not here...another little thing...have you ever opened the fridge of a vacation rental and it's completely KNOW the previous renters couldn't have possibly taken all of that food home...the little stuff like mayo and salad dressing. There was even a bottle of wine and 3 lovely cold beers. Soooo nice to have spices, some cooking spray, and even some coffee. (we were so impressed that we were sure to leave a full bag of fresh coffee for the next group) The boogie boards and snorkel gear, beach chairs and beach mats, beach umbrellas, and even bikes make it an easy trip to the beach with no worries about renting. We walked the grounds nightly (so homey and well kept) and the pool was clean and refreshing. Thank you Elaine for getting all the details right. We'll be back for sure!!

Can't Go Wrong

  • 5 of 5

This unit at the Mauna Lani is very well equipped with plenty of space for your family or travel group to spread out. The kitchen is very user friendly and the home is stocked with all the essentials. We have stayed in many units in the Mauna Lani resort, and while most have been comfortable and well taken care of, this was one of the best (and economical) units we have rented. One of the rental highlights was Elaine. My father suffered a diving accident and our stay had to be extended. Elaine went out of her way to accommodate us (moving her cleaning crew at the last minute). We appreciate the kindness and hope to return soon.

A wonderful place to stay, close to everything that makes Hawaii such a dream vacation. The condo was well appointed and did not lack in any category. We plan to return.

Cozy comfortable condo

  • 5 of 5

We came to Hawaii with our daughter, son-in-law and 6 month old grandson for a retirement celebration and loved Elaine & Peter's condo! It was very comfortable with many unexpected conveniences including really tasteful artwork, very comfortable furniture and beds, a fully equipped kitchen, and even a drawer full of things you might have forgotten to bring (post it notes, tape, batteries, scissors, etc.) and a Pack-and-Go and high chair for our grandson. Access to a nearby private beach proved to be wonderful benefit as was the pool complex just steps from our patio door. This particular unit was nicely located as an interior unit with the lanai on the first floor looking out onto the lush interior landscaping of the Fairways. Parking was very easy and there was little to no noise to disturb us. As noted in other reviews, the guest bedroom received direct sun in the afternoon so was a bit warmer than the master suite but the fan in the room helped make it comfortable. Elaine was very responsive by email and text and made sure that everything we needed to know was well documented and conveyed, including a thorough binder waiting for us with details about the condo, local restaurants, shopping, etc. The unit was very reasonably priced compared to others in the same development. All of this translated into a wonderful and relaxing vacation where we could unwind and feel like we were at home in paradise! We would recommend this rental without hesitation and hope to come back again soon!

Car: recommended

The Fairways at Mauna Lani is a gated community of luxury town homes built in 2005, located on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. About 20 min. north from the Kona (KOA) airport, you are nestled between the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and the Fairmont Orchid Hotel. Walk to Orchid Hotel for shoreline walks and gorgeous sunsets; drive or bike 5 minutes to the private, gentle bay 'the Beach Club', with its lounge chairs, and casual restaurant... wonderful Mai Tai and meals...we think it is a real gem!

Many shops and restaurants within the resort and a gourmet grocery store open until 11 pm. Explore nearby towns of Waimea, Hawi etc, or partake in horseback riding, ATV tours, ZipLine, fluming the Kohala Ditch in kayaks, hiking, bird watching, swimming, golf, snorkeling, tennis, scuba, whale watching and helicopter tours. If you have several days on-island, you'll want to drive the Hamakua Coast to Hilo and down to see the Volcano (active since 1984!)
