Having grown up in Chicago's harsh winters, it was a real treat for us to find this little slice of paradise on Hawaii's most majestic island. Though we call California home, our hearts are in Hawaii. We're both professors, and Bill is a minister, and we'll do all we can to exceed expectations, and make your stay better than you hoped it would be.
Bill and Margaret purchased this townhome in 2014
Mauna Lani stands head and shoulders above others as the premier resort on the Big Island. The Fairways have the perfect location, a glorious pool, and beautiful accommodations. We feel tremendous tranquility and tropical relaxation as soon as we walk in the door, and that's our hope for you.
When you rent from us, you'll find that we're committed to you, personally. We want to please you. If anything's not right, give us a call, and we'll scramble the jets to make it right. We care about you, and hope to make you a repeat visitor for years to come. Our hope and prayer for you is that your stay at our beautiful place refreshes your spirit, and gives you a sense of serenity as you bask in the sunshine and gentle breezes of the most beautiful spot on earth.
Where to begin? We had a better experience here than we had in Maui and Kauai, which we did not think possible. The condo is immaculate, upscale, utterly comfortable, and one of the rare units in which the owners allow you to set the thermostat down to 75 instead of 78. Sounds like a little thing, but for those of us who need it cool in order to sleep soundly this is a big deal. We slept better than we sleep at home. Whatever that mattress was, we want one. The place is beautifully appointed and utterly serene. We went to Snorkel Bob's to ask for suggestions on where to have a great underwater experience, and the split second the guy found out where we were staying he told us to stay put. So here is a big plus, especially if you are traveling with kids: with the condo you get secured parking and access to one of the best possible snorkel sites on the entire island. No one is going to break into your car while you are swimming. Soft sand is perfect for young kids. Great restaurant on the beach! Free use of the cabanas and lounge chairs when you stay at the condo. Palm trees are natural umbrellas. Lifeguard on duty. Not crowded. You drive about 4 minutes to get there. Unbelievable numbers of colorful fish and coral formations. Clear water. We bought small waterproof containers for our iPhones and filmed our dives! We thought we would snorkel all over the island but just returned here each time. We plan to return and bring friends. Two couples sharing the place is going to cost you less than staying at a nice hotel, and the space and amenities can't be beat. There is a great grocery store about a minute drive from the condo, and very good places to eat. My wife and I are so, so happy we stayed here. And remember, as with anywhere on Hawaii, put your sunscreen on first! You will get toasted in minutes if you don't. Oh, lastly, massive and artistic pool. We had it to ourselves anytime we wanted it. Have a a blast!
Before our trip even began, communication with the owners was excellent. They were very responsive to our questions and out needs. We had a three week stay on the Big Island and the second two weeks were in Bill and Margaret's condo at the Fairways. Our first week was in Kona and we asked if we could begin our stay a day early since the friends who were staying with us week one had to leave early and we were hoping to get settled into the new condo before our next guests arrived. There was no problem doing this and they didn't even charge us for the additional day. The condo was well furnished with upper end furnishings. All furnishings were very comfortable. The condo had everything we needed. The Barbecue worked great. It was conveniently located to the entrance to the community, the pool and work out room. We loved being able to start and end our days with a loop around the Fairmont Orchid and the Mauna Lani along the beach. If we were tired by the time we got to the Mauna Lani their shuttle would take us to the grocery store and we would walk back to the condo from there. We absolutely loved being able to park right in the lot next to the beach access for the Mauna Lani. We looked at some units that were for sale and had Open Houses during our stay and we can honestly say that Bill and Margarets place put the others to shame. We loved having all the beach supplies right there in the garage. It made for a perfect day of snorkeling at Kahaluu State Park. The only thing that we were sad about (besides leaving, of course) was that the bikes in the garage are for the owners use only. The last day of our trip we did find out that the bikes at the Fairmont Orchid are available to check out (probably for a cost) even if your weren't staying there. The Mauna Lani only allows their guests to use their bikes. We would totally love to be guests again in Bill and Margaret's condo!
Echo the thoughts from everyone else. This is a great condo right next door to the pool, with a great snorkeling area at Makaiwa beach. If you have young children who like the pool and want to try snorkeling you can't go wrong with this property. We were there during two hurricanes and Bill was proactive in keeping us posted about weather updates. Luckily nothing hit the islands. The wifi password stopped working towards end of our stay but I wasn't too bothered by it not did I take any effort to contact Bill to get it resolved. Highly recommend this rental!
Located near the excellent pool and the gym at Fairways and close enough to walk to the shops and restaurants at the Mauna Lani resort. The key card access to the beach at Makaiwa Bay is an enormous bonus - a short drive to a gorgeous beach, sun loungers and cabanas free to use and a lovely restaurant but best of all is the fantastic snorkelling. The beach is beautiful and very quiet when we were there. We rented an SUP one day which was really easy and enjoyed pottering round the bay on it.
From the property it was a very short drive to the departure point for the fantastic night manta snorkel we did with Blue Wilderness.
The accommodation was really clean and extremely well appointed with nice comfy furniture and top quality appliances (coffee machines, knives, washing machine, dryer etc). We loved using the outdoor area to BBQ and eat. There were also outdoor sofas which were the most comfortable I've ever come across.
The property is generously stocked with laundry detergents and kitchen supplies such as cling film, food bags, condiments as well as excellent beach and snorkelling equipment. We loved the snorkelling fins so much we bought some from the store near the Foodland supermarket to take to the next island with us!
We would love to come back to the Big Island and stay at Bill and Margaret's property again.
Once we touched down and hit Costco for groceries (mahalo for the tip!) we made the journey to our home away from home at Mauna Lani.
The resort was easy to find and the condo even easier. The directions and access instructions were perfect and made it easy to arrive and unwind. The condo was clean, spacious, and elegantly decorated. All the amenities of a home made the time we were there peaceful. We packed some of the provided beach toys with us wherever we went. Within the condo property, we used the pool and fitness room. The property staff even put out fresh, locally grown bananas that they allow you to pick and enjoy! Both provided everything we needed. Overall, the property was very quiet.
The resort itself was fantastic. Close proximity (easy walking distance) to shopping (groceries/gifts) and the ocean. We visited Tommy Bahamas Cafe for happy hour (highly recommended), Monstera Noodles/Sushi for dinner (also recommended) and really enjoyed Juice 101 and their quite large "keiki" size servings of Tropical Dream ice cream.
Overall, we were so pleased with our experience! We would highly, highly recommend this home for friends, family, and others exploring the VRBO site for places to stay on the Big Island. Mahalo Bill and Margi
Minutes to the island's most gorgeous sandy beaches, key card to private beach club with free cabanas for your enjoyment. Rental shack for all the beach toys you can imagine. Beautiful restaurant and bar overlooking emerald waters and white sand beach. Tropical paradise awaits. Dine at Ruth's Chris 5-star steakhouse, or Tommy Bahama's top-class eatery. Walk to Kimobean for amazingly fresh Kona coffee. Enjoy gorgeous breakfast buffets at the Fairmont Orchid or the Mauna Lani Bay Bungalows, each with breathtaking views of the sparkling sea. Watch humpback whales breach, hike through the rain forests, stroll through the magical fish ponds, visit an active volcano, zip through the rainforest canopy on a zip line, ride horses along the sea, or kick back and enjoy a drink or two in the most relaxing place on earth.
