The Dancing Dolphins villa is the perfect property for your family’s vacation!

It is beautifully and luxuriously appointed with stunning sunset views over the golf course. The location is so central to all the Big Island has to offer.

The master bedroom is a peaceful retreat with its own spacious lanai overlooking the golf course. Sink into the luxurious lounge chairs and enjoy a quiet drink away from it all.

The kids have their own bedroom with their own TV and their own bathroom. The pool is only a 5 min walk away and it is a beautiful large pool with an enclosed shallow area for the little ones. The walk to the pool will be a delight for them. It is lined with fishponds containing many many goldfish.

It is a sparkling white sand beach enclosed by corral and very safe for the kids. It is lifeguarded. While the kids are enjoying a swim and a snorkel (snorkel sets included) - you may enjoy a cool drink at the restaurant overlooking the beach. it is so pretty and picturesque.

Another beach is a 10 minute walk away. Next to it is a turtle sanctuary - a delight for the children.

About Elena Haluk

We are a professional couple with three hockey-obsessed kids. You guessed it - we hail from Canada, eh?!

We love travelling and exploring the wonders of the world. To us, the Big Island of Hawaii is one of those magical wonders. Come enjoy and fall in love with it like we did!

Elena Haluk purchased this townhome in 2013

Why Elena Haluk chose Kohala Coast

Superb location - top notch restaurants, gorgeous beaches, superb hiking trails, thrilling water sports - all a few minutes' walk or a short drive away. All this combined with the perfect weather and the natural splendour of the Big Island creates an ideal vacation get away!

What makes this townhome unique

Unlike other units in the Fairways, the townhouse offers complete privacy and breathtaking views of the golf course and the swaying palm trees - nothing else. You will feel as if the whole world belongs to you alone.

At the same time the unit is very close to the pool, hot tub and workout facility. Access is a walk across the super low traffic street. The community is extremely safe and we feel safe letting our kids explore on their own.

Big Island Home Away from Home

  • 5 of 5

We were so grateful to have this beautiful home to stay in while we visited Kona. I would stay here again in a heartbeat. The location was perfect - close to the Mauna Lani shops, beaches, and Fairmont Orchid hotel. The shops had everything we needed - grocery store, Kimobean coffee shop (with amazing coconut scones), surf shops (where we rented a golf cart for scooting around), Tommy Bahama restaurant and happy hour (so good!), and many others. We were able to spend time at the residents only beach (where we snorkeled) and the Fairmont Orchid beach (where we did SUP in the bay and enjoyed the beach cabanas). We also attended the Luau at Fairmont Orchid which was a great show and the food was outstanding. And, we were able to get SO MANY beautiful pictures of our family on the beach -- so be sure to bring a camera!

The Villa itself was nothing short of perfect for our family of 4. The layout was ideal and allowed us to enjoy some downtime between all of the outdoor activities. We were able to grill meals and enjoy the view of the golf course during the day and the beautiful stars at night. Our girls had their own room and enjoyed some downtime together while my husband and I played some cards on the patio off the master suite. Just the right size to give everyone their own space but still be together. The pool at the Fairways is very nice and beautiful - we actually visited it several times during our stay. And, everyone we encountered was so friendly. As we were departing, the grounds keeper asked if we were returning and urged us to booking again for next year.

When we return to Kona (and we will!), this will the the only place we look at too stay. Mahalo for the amazing experience!!

Great Location

  • 4 of 5

Our stay was great. The apt is decorated really nice and it has a beautiful view. Marc, the property manager was there for anything we needed. The location is two blocks from the beach which was a perfect walk each morning. The city is so clean, safe and friendly. We will be back!

Personal favorite

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd stay in Mauna Lani and the 2nd in the Fairways complex. This was our favorite stay/accommodation to date. Not only was the unit beautifully furnished, but the owner and local manager were both very responsive, friendly and accommodating--which always helps keep a vacation just that. We got to enjoy the use of the beach equipment that was available in the unit, including boogie boards, snorkels, pool noodles, beach umbrellas and the cooler bag was especially useful! On our last full day we went to one of the beautiful nearby beaches up north only to be blown away by wind and beat up by big surf. We retreated to the Mauna Lani beach club and we had the most magic day with kids ranging in age from 2-52. While there was no boogie boarding (I don't think it's allowed at that beach), the water was flat calm (great for the little keiki) and the snorkeling rivaled the best places on the island. The Mauna Lani Beach Club is gated and available only to those staying at the resort--well, the chairs anyways, I guess all Hawaii beaches are public(?). While I hate to give away my secrets, I have to recommend this unit.

Excellent!!

  • 5 of 5

The property was excellent. Everything was in great condition. The master bedroom is really nice and large with a beautiful tub and a really nice view over the golf course. We had a wonderful time sitting out on both the upstairs patio and the downstairs patio. The location is great. We absolutely loved the private beach club. We had free use of shaded lounge chairs on a beautiful beach that had nice gentle waves for my son to play in. They also had stand-up paddle boards to rent right there on the beach, which was a great activity. There was decent snorkeling as well.

We were able to walk to the Fairmont orchid for a few breakfasts and dinners and a different beach (that beach has really great snorkeling). The only downside of the short walk is there are no sidewalks, but there is a pretty good shoulder on the road and people were driving slowly.

The kitchen was well stocked and the grocery store is just down the road.

The condos around us all seemed full but we hardly ever heard anyone and very much felt like we had our own space, even outside where the patios are close together there are great dividers that give you some privacy.

Elena was excellent! The check in was a breeze. We arrived late at night and had no trouble at all. We had something come up during our stay and she was amazing and responded very quickly and was wonderful to work with.

The pool on the property is clean and nice, but it was a bit cold for my 1yo. There is a large hot tube too but we didn't use that much.

I would highly, highly recommend this wonderful VRBO!

Comfortable space

  • 4 of 5

This townhouse in a gated community was quiet, nice and clean. The only issue was that the master bed was a king size mattress over a queen size box spring a situation, which was not entirely comfortable.

Owner's Response: We do sincerely apologize for the situation. We did have a late delivery on the box spring and the guest did have to deal with a king mattress over a queen box spring. Since then, we have received delivery of the cal king box spring and have installed it. We now have a super comfortable california king mattress over a california king box spring in the master bedroom. Our apologies again. Elena

Excellent Villa rental

  • 5 of 5

This was our first time renting for a vacation, and it was a wonderful experience. This villa superseded our expectations it was beautifully decorated and very well maintained. It's so quite You feel like your the only people in the community. The views are stunning, the beds are comfortable and the house has everything you need in every aspect of the house. bathrooms had toilet paper,ample towels, hair dryer, and a bar of soap in each bathroom.There was a iron, extra sheets and pillows and plenty of closet space, the kitchen has everything you would need pots and pans,plates,utensils and gadgets,stem wear and mugs, baking dishes and even Tupperware which came in really handy. The laundry room housed all of the extra pool and beach gear and that was a big + not to having to pay extra to rent out gear we wanted for nothing. Arriving at the unit was very easy with the direction Elena emailed me everything was organized and easy to access. The pool is no more then a min walk down and around the corner, we enjoyed having it practically to our selfs I'm guessing due to the off season. The private beach was really nice and comfortable and fun to snorkel. The villa is located in a great central location you can explore north or south of you and find plenty to do with in a 15 mins drive. We did a lot of activitys and where able to find our way around with out any problem, though I would recommend a rental car it's a lot of fun to explore and get from one point to another with transportation. FYI the Hilton that is less then 20 min away allows you to use there facility's for a fee and it's well worth it for a change of scenery, we even got a chance to see dolphins swimming from the dock, check it out you won't regret it. Also Mauna lani hotel, has a great beach to watch the sun set, it was peaceful and gorgeous we even got to see the turtles sun bathing on the sand and the ocean bar and grill right out side is casual and makes great drinks and pizza if your looking for a more casual evening. I could go on and on about how great this experience was thank you Elena for offering your home for rent at such an affordable rate, it allowed me and my husband the opportunity to experience Hawaii and everything it has to offer for the first time with out breaking the bank. Mahalo
