About Timothy (Timo) Driedger

After owning in Keauhou for 20+ years, we fell in love with Mauna Lani when Grand Father assisted bringing Skins Game to Big Island and the weather is the most consistent in the USA, with has less rain than even Las Vegas or Phoenix. We love sunshine and finding a place with the civility we remember growing up, the Big Island definitely delivers. Great Golf, Great Weather, Great Food, Great Beaches, and a perfect retreat!

Timothy (Timo) Driedger purchased this house in 2012

Obviously too big for the two of us, this 5100 sq.ft home, is suited well for guests to Mauna Lani Resort that want a special golf along with great weather, beaches, golf, snorkeling, biking and a memorable vacation. As homes in Champion Ridge all have their own pool the Garden Area has a natural grass putting green, herb, vegetable & fruit garden for the owners and guests at Champion Ridge.

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to say thank you for providing such a lovely vacation getaway.Our family and friends loved the beautifully decorated island style home. We appreciated the onsuite baths and

and the spacious guest rooms.

The upstairs lanai was wonderful for conversation, stargazing and the tropical breezes! We enjoyed every delicious meal in the upstairs dining room as well.The designated cooks made trips to the herb garden to prepare.

As for the water,the pool was used sun up to sundown.

We loved the beach access as well. Our crew took full advantage of the

bikes and the snorkel gear.

What a great vacation and great accommodations.

Peace of paradise

  • 5 of 5

There are not enough words to put down on paper the wonderful thoughts and feelings we have after staying in this gem and peace of paradise.

The house owner Timo is kind , pleasure to deal with and very accommodating . We arrived very late and with direction provided by Timo , we found and accessed the house easily. In the morning the view and the comfort of the house took our breath a way. The home is in secure gated community about a 3 min drive or a 20 min walk to Mauna Lani Beach. We walked to our favorite beach at Mauna Lani Beach Club and it is so wonderful for children, calm waters with the best snorkeling . The house is a few min drive to the Mauna Lani shoppes . The neighborhood is very privet , quiet and our children loved the community garden, they run to get some herbs for omelet and lemons for tea .The house is a true home, well stocked & provided with everything for every day use and beach, even down to the smallest items . For example , beach toys , chairs , ice chest , snorkeling mask and fins and so much more . The kitchen has many extras as well. It is wonderful. I did not have to spend my vacation time hunting down this items . We enjoyed exploring the island and it was hard to justify leaving the house some days . The children just loved swimming and playing in the pool . The stars are so clear and beautiful, after children went to bed we went out to our "privet planetarium ", simply unforgettable sight. Thank you Timo for your kind hospitality , we can not wait to be back. The had the best vacation . Mahalo!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience this August at the Executive House at Mauna Lani. Life & people are amazing, and your family demonstrates the simple principal of helping others, "giving first to get back", and it was our pleasure hosting a family with these beliefs as your presence was magical. Trust you all had a real feeling of the "civility" while here visiting the Big Island, and why so many return visitors or even eventualy relocate here. We look forward to hosting you again next year! That was a long journey from New York for you, and glad our home delivered a great memory.

Coming back is like returning home

  • 5 of 5

We love this place. This is our 4th time! Now we know how good the executive house is and we love sharing with our friends who travel with us. Beaches so close, right in the heart of Mauna Lani, so easy to slip into relaxed mode. We filled the house with friends but there's enough room so nobody is getting in another's space. The house has gear for beach activities to use, no time to be bored here. Eat in or eat locally, your choice. Don't think about it, book now! Mahalo Timo for your continued hospitality.

One Fine Stay

  • 4 of 5

Starting with the booking process, it was a pleasure to deal with Timo the entire time. We were a large group of 9 staying in this home, and the secure payment options and easy access to the home upon late night arrival were greatly appreciated. The home is as advertised and in a secure gated community about a 3 min drive or a 20 min walk to Mauna Lani Beach. Having proximity and easy access to Mauna Lani Beach Club was golden for us having children and persons with mobility issues. Again a 3 min drive to the Mauna Lani shops for groceries, smoothies and dining options...The neighbourhood is a gem...we loved walking down to the community garden courtyard with its putting green and herb and fruit garden....The house is a true home...master bedroom downstairs with 2 queen beds and magnificent bathroom, upstairs the kitchen , dining rooms, and the lanai is unbeatable...a sunset view and an ocean noise from neighbours or the golf course. Downstairs 4 bedrooms in total all with ensuites, and we also used the upstairs tv room as a bedroom as well...3 of the bedrooms are in an adjoining wing which adds privacy and more peace and quiet while still offering you quick access to the pool and hot tub and downstairs courtyard patio..House is full of extras like bikes, and beach toys and boogie boards.This home has been lived in...there are some minor sliding door and window issues, but these are scheduled maintenance issues that come with a home and do not detract from your enjoyment of the must closely watch the outdoor shower, lanai, and indoor stair transitions as they are very hard to see..we mitigated the risk with some rearrangement of decorations to remind us to watch carefully... Timo was very responsive to our concerns, also helped us arrange a golf trip, as well as dolphin swims...a fine host indeed..This home is unbeatable value in a fantastic location. Thank you Timo! We have recommended this property to all of our friends and family and hope to return to the Big Island one day soon...One Fine Stay.

Highest home point in surrounding Mauna Lani area

  • 5 of 5

Spent last week at this home and it's greatest feature is it sits at a high vantage point looking toward the sea and dramatic golf course and is literally around the corner of the Mauni Lani private beach club (which you have access to). You can walk down out the back to the famous restaurant too on back side of the golf resort and have a great meal and stare at ocean sunsets. Timo (the owner) is over-the-top in being able to help you with any surrounding area activities if you need them -- he's very connected throughout the area. Given the home's high vantage point, the ocean and land breezes come at you from both directions depending on the time of day - - wonderful.

Family Vacation

  • 3 of 5

Excellent Location. Very large home. We had a total of 8 people. Plenty of room for everyone. A bathroom in each bedroom. Unfortunately the home is not being maintained. Cracked toilet seat in our bathroom as well as poor drainage in bathtub. When we called the owner on Saturday, he said he'd be out on Monday to fix the toilet seat. The toilet seat was never fixed. No window treatments in the bedroom or bathroom windows for privacy. Two crank out windows in the large dinning room didn't open. One had tape around the handle. Cold water in kitchen sink and dishwasher. A number of the sinks in bathrooms did not have hot water. Very poor connection to WIFI. Fortunately one of our parties had a hot spot so we used that to connect to internet. Much of the furniture needs to be replaced(ex. cracked weave on chairs in informal dining, old bedspread in our bedroom, pool chair seats broken that are part of the glass table by the pool, get rid of old decorative pillows), Dirty windows throughout the home, old food in kitchen cabinets and refrigerator needs to be removed after each group leaves, air conditioning does not work well on main floor living area. Some of the sliding glass doors did not open. This home needs some TLC. This home is not handicap accessible. Quite frankly I would not stay at this home again.

Owner's Response: We thank you for the review and clarifying that the reviewer was a guest of yours who took exception to our Executive House. Three Stars pretty good! The toilet seat was in working order when your group arrived, as per our cleaning team checklist, so it must have been broken while your guest was using the bedroom. We understand items break, and appreciate the nice tape job instead of replacing with the new seat the day after you called and it was left in the garage. You did not reply to our request to authorize entrance without your okay. Maybe you felt bad after we offered to drive you to local hospital, when your son had an unfortunate fall. The water & electricity meters confirm excess use during your stay, which explains the hot water issue. We only recommend you allow time after beach or morning time to heat them up, and the sink in kitchen is less important than the showers in bedroom. For future visitors, this is a very large house, with no hot water tank upstairs, the water must travel up and a long way to dishwasher, which heats the water with elements and or kitchen sink. Our mantra is to offer a safe and comfortable home for an affordable price. Pretty sure we delivered on that, and we are so sorry that the person in your group, was so disappointed that they used a review to expose these frivolous items. Feedback is appreciated and valued, but give us an opportunity to resolve something while you are here, and we will always get it done. All these other reviews confirm this. Have a great 2016! This year we are 75% full and over 50% are return guests. Under Promise Over Deliver, is our Mantra! So Sorry about your guest Julie! Warmest Aloha!

Champion Ridge at Mauna Lani is a masterstroke of planning. It is comprised of thirty-three fabulous home sites, each lavishing a 360-degree panorama of Big Island mountains and dramatic golf views.

This exclusive, 23.5-acre community offers a lifestyle of unlimited enjoyment amid a perennial golfer’s paradise.

Mauna Lani Resort is a luxury golf resort with two championship golf courses, Mauna Lani North and South. Both golf courses offer a challenging experience to novice and professional golf enthusiasts alike. Mauna Lani has received Golf Magazine's Gold Medal Award every year since 1988 and was host to the Senior Skins Golf Game for 11 years. The Big Island golf courses are masterpieces of design, each strikingly different, yet equally challenging. Each course is a world apart geographically, and in playing experience.

The Mauna Lani Spa is a uniquely Hawaiian day spa retreat ranked one of the 'World's Best Spas' by Travel & Leisure magazine. The spa resort is a reflection of the Island of Hawaii's splendid range of geographic wonders. From the snowy peaks of Mauna Kea to the flowing lava of Kilauea the spa's architecture, treatments and services draw from the colorful history and mythology of the land.

The luxury spa resembles a Hawaiian village with thatched hale for treatments, two natural lava saunas, a meditation pavilion and a watsu pool. Treatments include traditional Hawaiian therapies, baths body treatments and massage therapy.

The Mauna Lani Salon is located adjacent to the Mauna Lani Spa. Relax with a luxury Spa treatment then visit the Salon for a pedicure, manicure or the latest hairstyle.

Activities abound on the Island of Hawaii. A trip to an active volcano, an excursion to the largest telescopes in the world, or a hike into a tropical rainforest are just a few of the exciting adventures available. Guests of Mauna Lani will also find a myriad of activities at the resort from world class golf, a Hawaiian inspired spa, water sports or a tranquil afternoon in a private cabana at the Beach Club.
