Very comfortable accommodations and well appointed kitchen

  • 5 of 5

Lovely accommodations for our family of four. Well stocked kitchen and very comfortable beds and bedding. I have back issues to the mattress quality is very important to me. Not too soft and not board hard, just right.

Owner's Response: thank you for taking time to send in a review; we are happy you found the beds comfortable...that's of primary importance in any accommodation i think. We also provide high-thread count sheets to add to the comfort, just like i'd want in my own home.

Great affordable place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

This was a beautiful condo that we would stay in again. The reason it gets 4/5 stars is because the master bedroom bed was VERY uncomfortable. We ended up sleeping in the guest bedroom; which had a much more comfortable bed. Also some of the beach equipment was broken . Overall it was a great place to stay. Thank you so much for letting us use your place; beautiful condo and beautiful location!

This condo was absolutely beautiful! It had everything we needed for our stay. We loved it!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has so many features that made our experience amazing. The hosts were very easy to contact, and provided us with all the information we would need from detailed TV instructions to great food in the area. Small touches like having some scuba gear for our use really made our vacation better! It was clean, well decorated, and well equipped with everything we would need. Would definitely recommend!

Pick of the bunch! Awesome place and location especially for 70.3 Ironman

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I stayed here for his 40th birthday, part of which involved competing in the Honu 70.3 Ironman. We shared with my brother and his wife and the place could not have been any better equipped or more comfortable. We had two other groups of friends staying within Fairways at Mauna Lani for the Ironman and we saw their 2 villas and ours was by far the best! Has everything you could ever need and many many things you didn't even realise you needed or wanted.

Elaine was very easy to deal with, extremely accommodating and the villa itself is sensational. Absolutely recommend it.

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 Puako

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!

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!)
