About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

Luxuriate amidst the spacious grounds and white sand beaches of the five-star Mauna Lani Hotel. For your vacation home at the Mauna Lani Resort, choose this premier ocean front location in the Mauna Lani Terrace Condominiums, which consistently rate the 'best of' the Mauna Lani Resort housing.

From your condo, you can feel that you are secluded in a tropical paradise, and yet you are minutes from world- class golf, dining and resort recreation.


This 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath vacation retreat invites you to relax and unwind in a quiet, green, oceanfront setting. The master bedroom, dining room and living room open onto private lanais with unobstructed views of the sea - a situation few other units can offer. Request our special terrace map and decide for yourself whether our unit’s locale is unparalleled!

The interior is comfortable Island décor. The kitchen is well equipped for serious and casual cooks. Turn off the central AC, open the doors and let the gentle trade winds blow. Take a dip at the MLT’s ocean view private pool, which is out of view but just across the lawn.

Your lanais look out on a sweep of tropical beach scenery that incorporates the classic white sand with the dramatic black lava of which this island is composed. The beach path just off the grass in front of your lanai invites you for a short walk to enjoy white sandy beaches for turtle watching, swimming and great snorkeling. The water is crystal clear and warm enough to walk right in!

Behind and around you are trails through 13 acres of beautifully landscaped tropical flora and the restored Royal Kalahuipua'a historic fish ponds.

Walk up to the Mauna Lani Hotel to enjoy a Mai Tai and the sunset plus Hawiian music and dance—or luxuriate in the outstanding dining available here. Within the grounds are all that the Mana Lani Resort offers. Play a round of golf at two acclaimed world class golf courses. Mauna Lani Terrace guests receive a discount price on green fees. You have resort access to a tennis facility, spa and workout gym for resort fees.

The owners selected and now maintain this delightful property for their own enjoyment and the pleasure of their guests. You can’t afford to wait until the last minute to book this special vacation retreat.

Mauna Lani Terrace Oceanfront - J102 Luxury Ocean front Condo is located adjacent to Mauna Lani Hotel ~25 minutes from Kona airport, on the sunny Kohala coast. Please contact us for further information - we would like to arrange an enjoyable stay

About Tim Derflinger

We are ocean lovers who have found the Terrace in our old age after years boating in the South Pacific (Solomons-New Guinea).

Tim Derflinger purchased this villa in 2000

Why Tim Derflinger chose Puako

Snorkeling extremely good and a level walk close to amenities of five star hotel. Spectacular ocean front views, great location for grandchildren, and for scuba diving or golf, so close to beach we bought without even seeing inside of villa.

What makes this villa unique

Golf, scuba diving, snorkeling ls the very best . Spa in resort very close to dive center short walk to beach club and hotel restaurants. Just sitting on our fabulous lanai some say like a private estate.

No view obstructions.

Beautiful location & views!

  • 4 of 5

We just returned home from a 12 day stay in this unit & loved it! Close enough to everything but quiet enough we almost forgot we were at a resort! Tim, the property manager, was so kind and helpful! Can’t wait to visit again! Mahalo!

We had a lovely 10 days. The condo location is ideal. Nice walk to the tennis facility through a lava field and around the magical fish ponds. Tim, the property manager could not be nicer. He really made us feel welcome and cared for

Comfortable Paradise

  • 5 of 5

J102 is in a fabulous quiet and secure location with a spectacular view. The ground floor lanai is close enough to take in the view yet set back enough that it's private. You can easily walk to the beach (great trails to walk north or south for miles), the pool, and a couple of bars and restaurants nearby and it's only about a mile to the shopping center. A short drive then a 1.2 mile round trip hike to see the nearby petroglyphs is a unique must see. We appreciated that the condo was well supplied with plenty of towels, pillows, beach stuff and even the kitchen was stocked with a few basics (paper towels, coffee filters, zip locks, even a few spices). This unit would not be a good choice for someone who was physically disabled as there are stairs (down) to access the unit and the bathroom doors are very narrow, but if that's not an issue then this unit is great. Tim was available for questions and recommendations. Bring your own DVD's if you want to watch movies. Our stay at J102 was delightful!

Perfect Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We just returned from a relaxing week in paradise. Our stay at Mauna Lani Terrace - Unit J102 was wonderful! The condo is tastefully decorated, comfy and equipped with anything at all you might need. The waterfront views along with the close proximity to the pool and the beach cannot be beat. Tim, the property manager, could not have been more hospitable and gracious. So happy to have discovered this Hawaiian gem and hope to return someday soon! Mahalo :)

Spring Break 2017

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous vacation - J102 is a perfect property for a family of four. The location is ideal - we enjoyed having our own spacious unit while having access to the hotel amenities. The unit is in perfect condition, and having three bathrooms is a godsend when traveling with teens. The Shops at Mauna Lani were convenient for both dining and shopping at the small upscale market. We took advantage of the onsite dive shop who were also excellent. Finally, Tim is an amazing property manager - he was exceptional in his interest in helping us have a great vacation, including celebrating our son's 18th birthday.

A great find on the Kohala Coast!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I recently stayed at J102 for one month, and we couldn't have been more pleased! The unit is tastefully decorated, impeccably clean, and filled with nice surprises: In the kitchen, every small appliance one could want - - from espresso machine to french press, blender to wok, you name it and J102 has it. All the cleaning and household supplies you'll need are provided - - laundry detergent, dishwasher soap, kleenex, paper towels, trash bags - - we didn't have to purchase any of these typically-needed items. Linens and towels were plentiful, including 6 nice beach towels. The master bedroom was lovely, with its own huge bathroom (separate sinks, separate tub / shower) and private lanai. The 2nd bedroom was configured with 2 twin beds when we stayed, and it too had its own bathroom. There's a half bathroom in the hallway for guests. Outside, the lanai housed lots of goodies for the beach, including several boogie boards, multiple sets of snorkel equipment (mask/snorkel/fins), and many sand toys for young children. The wireless internet was fast and reliable, and although we didn't watch much TV, the large screen TV in the living room was great (it has cable channels) and there was a TV in the master as well. The location can't be beat - - 3 private beaches within very short walking distance, a private pool (only for the Mauna Lani Terrace), and a short car ride to some of the best public beaches in the world (Hapuna Beach being our favorite). The Shops at Mauna Lani are pricey but fun to look around; we ate twice at The Blue Room, a very nice French restaurant within the Shops area. We also took advantage of the Foodland grocery store at the Shops, which is a bit more expensive than the Safeway in Kona, but soooo convenient and with a pretty good selection considering it's a small grocery store. It also has a decent wine selection. If you like sushi, don't miss "Sushi Rock" restaurant in Hawi, a small town about 45 minutes north of Mauna Lani resort - - well worth the beautiful drive up the coast. Just writing about our wonderful stay is making me wish we could be back there now! Tim was a pleasure to work with; he really went the extra mile to make sure we felt welcomed from the start! Can't say enough about this fantastic rental.
