Overview

Kohala Coast Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Relaxing Resort Environment; The Ultimate In Luxury And Privacy.

3-Bedroom, 3-Bath Townhome overlooking the 10th fairway of the Championship South Course at the Mauna Lani Resort.

Our condo is located in one of the two most desirable buildings in Golf Villas. It is an end unit overlooking the 10th fairway of the famous South Course. Look directly across the fairway and view the multimillion dollar homes of Black Sand Beach.

The sunrise over Mauna Kea is your view to the east, and to the west, more fairway stretching to the ocean. Our home opens to an extra spacious lawn overlooking the black lava and expansive green golf course views. Abundant light and views from every well appointed room in the home; beautifully furnished by C.S. Wo of Honolulu.

Our home has 3 bedrooms and 3 full bathrooms which we limit to 6 guests. The upstairs den has a desk where you can enjoy a beautiful view while checking your e-mails with free secured Broadband wireless connection.

We love the summer kitchen with a Thermador stainless steel BBQ where you can prepare fish bought from the local fishermen or steaks from Parker Ranch. If you wish to just sit and relax outside there are 2 comfortable patio chairs and table.

Our comfortable living room includes a 42' flat TV. Hair dryers are in each bathroom. All bedrooms are equipped with flat screen TVs, DVD players, cable/digital TV with music channels.

About Jo Ann Dornbush

My husband and I moved to Hawaii 41 years ago as newlyweds. Our children were born and raised in the islands. We are a golfing family and enjoyed our 'ready-made' foursome. We now are blessed with the addition of a son-in-law and daughter-in-law to our family and look forward to spending time with them at our new home at Mauna Lani.

Jo Ann Dornbush purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Jo Ann Dornbush chose Kohala Coast

We recently purchased this beautiful townhome at Golf Villas (previously VRBO listing #244573) in the Mauna Lani Resort. We owned a couple of units at Mauna Lani when our children we young and we had wonderful memories of family vacations there. We decided to 'go home' to Mauna Lani again. We are thrilled as this unit is meticulously maintained and beautifully furnished.

Wonderful condo/ great service/ lovely location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great stay. The condo was fully stocked with all types of condiments, kitchen ware etc . We travelled with children and found the laundry closet stocked with stain remover and detergent which was helpful. The condo was very comfortable and the air conditioning worked well. My in-laws who are in their late 60's / early 70's found the bed downstairs very comfortable and the room temperature great. Having everything on the main floor was great for my in-laws who have had knee surgery and didn't have to use the stairs. We also found the master bed comfortable. We dined over at the Fairmont at sunset which was beautiful. Highly recommend their beach café for sunset dining/ drinks. Very relaxing. Danielle, the caretaker, even provided us with a crockpot and a couple of boogie boards for the kids. We found it very handy to have access to the crockpot so dinner could be ready when we arrived back at the condo. Our only request for improvement might be to supply some extra beach goodies (a few chairs or beach mats/ beach umbrella/ boogie boards/ pool toys) which would have been fun to have. Other than that the condo was a hit with everyone!

Exceeded Expectations....

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to the Mauna Lani Golf Villas was idyllic. The unit was comfortable and stylish. The place was also immaculate, well stocked and in a superb location; all restaurants, grocery store and beaches minutes away. We loved the lanai which featured a convenient outdoor grill and bar area. One favorite feature was the massive walk-in closet in the master bedroom. The owner and property manager were helpful and made sure we had the best experience possible during our stay. Looking forward to booking our next visit!

It doesn't get any better

  • 5 of 5

We had a perfect vacation at the Mauna Lani Golf Villas (and we are not even golfers). The resort is top notch and offers everything you need to enjoy the big island. The grounds are beautiful and all the amenities are there (grocery store, shops etc.). The beach club is a bonus with great snorkeling, beautiful scenery and a very good & reasonably priced bar & restaurant -- try the mai-tai for sure!

My family of four (kids are 15 & 20) adored this unit. It is just as described and perfectly appointed. The property is roomy and gave our older kids the space they needed at the days end. The kitchen is large and well stocked with high quality wares for you to cook any meal. Our favorite though was the gas grill and patio (seemed to be one of the larger ones in the complex) -- what's not to like about relaxing with the beautiful golf course view while you barbecue?

Lastly, both Jo Ann and Danielle are attentive and gracious hosts. They made sure our stay was pleasant -- thanks! We'll be back.

Excellent location for relaxing on the Big island

  • 5 of 5

The condo is nicely furnished, clean, comfortable, and well maintained: photos and listing description are accurate. Drinking coffee on the upstairs terrace in the mornings was really pleasant, as were early evening swims in the pool. The location on the Mauna Lani resort grounds is a real plus - everything is within a few minutes drive. You have access to an excellent beach with good snorkeling, plenty of lounge chairs, boat trips, kayaking, and a restaurant for lunch or an afternoon drink. You can join the well equipped fitness center by the day. The Mauna Lani shopping area has a good grocery store, three restaurants for happy hour or dinner, and a variety of other shops. Dinner beachside at the Mauna Lani, Fairmont Orchid, and nearby Mauna Kea is a treat while watching the sun set. We have been to the Big island several times, and so did not do much sightseeing or traveling around the island this time (except for a drive up to Tex's drive-in for the wonderful doughnuts); we spent most of our time on the beach and taking long swims in the amazingly clear and warm ocean. It is an excellent location for doing a little or a lot.

Great Condo and Manager!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo in July and found it in great shape; the manage Danielle was there to meet us, and everything worked properly and was in great shape. The Golf Villas are one of the most economical places to stay in one of the best resorts on the Big Island, especially if you like snorkeling or golf!

Fantastic Holiday

  • 5 of 5

We loved our stay in this wonderful condo. The owners and the property manager were great to work with. We had 5 people in our family for 12 nights and there was plenty of room for all. We loved the privacy of the end unit, surrounded by beautiful flowering trees. The kitchen is well appointed and the outdoor barbeque was great. We walked every morning to the Mauni Lani or Fairmont hotels for coffee. The private beach is fantastic for snorkeling. The Fairmont Hotel has a wonderful bay for snorkeling, where you will see more turtles, but the water isn't as clear as at the private beach. The swimming pool is lovely and much larger than the pictures portray. We would recommend the Mauna Kea Summit Adventure, Hapuna Beach, Mauni Lani South Course for golf and the Hawaiian Volcano National Park for day trips. We stopped at Costco, but loved shopping at the Foodlands Farm Market every day. I highly recommend this property!!
