Overview

Waimea Townhome Rental Photos and Description

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Look no farther for your dream Hawaiian vacation. Just a short walk to white sand beaches set against turquoise waters, or drive 4 minutes to the world-class private owner's beach. Watch the sunset over the gentle waves while dining in an open air beachside restaurant. Lounge on one of 2 private lanais, or beside the oversized lagoon-style swimming pool. Indulge in world-class golfing, whale watching, and all the glories of the Big Island.

We take pride in offering you a beautifully furnished, immaculate retreat from the cares of the world. We've designed it to be upscale while still offering a tropical, Hawaiian flair.

The MASTER SUITE boasts carved Hawaiian furnishings, luxurious bedding on a king sized bed. An en-suite private bath with jacuzzi tub, dual sinks, granite counters, travertine floors, high-end separate shower, and plush towels complete your experience. Enjoy morning coffee or tea on the comfortable lanai right outside the suite overlooking the glorious Mauna Lani resort.

KITCHEN: Our town home offers you a gourmet dream kitchen, fully stocked with cookware and dinner ware. You'll enjoy gleaming granite counters, a teak-wood table for six and elegant service ware. Everything you could want. You'll find a GE profile stove, full oven, and microwave. Or step out onto the lanai to the outdoor kitchen with a sink, granite counter, and built-in stainless steel Viking grill. A coffee maker, Keurig Coffee system, toaster, tea kettle, and everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay are also provided.

SECOND BEDROOM: The 2nd bedroom is set with a king sized bed, and luxurious bedding. An adjacent full bath makes this the ideal home for 2 couples to share. Upon request, you will find two futon pads and linens to sleep another two people comfortably.

LIVING ROOM: Relax on high end furnishings in front of the flat-panel TV with surround sound, DVD player, cable TV, and wifi. Top quality furnishings transport you to the beauty and peace that you came to Hawaii to find.

THE BEACH: It's all about the beach, and you'll find gorgeous options within the resort. Our favorite is the private Beach Club with its white sand beach. Your exclusive KEY CARD gets you and your group into this gorgeous owner's beach and club only 4 minutes away. Comfortable blue cabanas are free, or use the beach chairs, cooler, and towels we supply. Enjoy drinks and the beach-side bar, munch on appetizers, or enjoy a full meal at this casual but exclusive club. SNORKELING here has been compared to swimming in a rich person's aquarium.

SPA: The Mauna Lani Spa and Racquet Club offers incredible relaxation and full tennis courts (extra charges apply).

GOLF: Mauna Lani Resort is a luxury Hawaii 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 at this luxury resort are masterpieces of design, each strikingly different, yet equally challenging. GOLF DISCOUNTS are available when you stay as our guest at Mauna Lani.

WORKOUT ROOM: Steps away from our villa, or indulge yourself at the Fitness, Tennis, and Spa Center minutes away.

POOL: Relax beside the waterfall, bubble away your anxieties in the hot tub, and cool off in the lagoon style swimming pool steps away from your lanai.

RESTAURANTS: Within Mauna Lani's resort, enjoy Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Tommy Bahama's Restaurant, or the numerous restaurants at the Fairmont Orchid and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. Minutes away, at the Waikoloa Beach Resort, you'll find more choices including Roy's Bar and Grill, Starbucks, Romano's Macaroni Grill and both upscale and casual local fare. Don't forget numerous nearby choices for a LUAU... a must-see for every Hawaiian traveller.

SHOPPING: Great grocery store within walking distance, or others a short drive away. Tiffany's, Tommy Bahama's, Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, and other high end shopping only minutes away.

About Bill and Margaret

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

Why Bill and Margaret chose Kohala Coast

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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.

Absolutely perfect.

  • 5 of 5

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!

Owner's Response: We are so glad you enjoyed our place. We work hard to offer a serene, well-apppointed home for your Hawaii vacation. The owner's beach is indeed a treasure. We were out snorkeling with our kids yesterday, and the place is teeming with beautiful fish, and a view the can't be beat. We try to price our home to make it as affordable a possible; and yes, we're far more affordable than the hotels, which offer much smaller rooms. We'd love to host you again, and would be delighted to host your friends as well. Mahalo, Bill & Margi

A luxurious, relaxing springboard for all of our Big Island adventures

  • 5 of 5

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

Perfect for our needs

  • 4 of 5

The property is as depicted on the website. We were pleasantly surprised to learn that it is adjacent to the large and lovely pool area. It was immaculate and the kitchen was well stocked. Enjoyed the sand mats and excellent beach umbrella that we used at Hapuna State Beach as well as the delightful Beach Club. Having a new pack and play and booster seat for our 11 month granddaughter was very convenient. The owners were very responsive to our requests/ queries. We would highly recommend the Mauna Lani as the perfect family-friendly resort.

Great Big Island Headquarters

  • 5 of 5

Our family LOVED our say on the big island and this rental was perfect for our trip. The unit itself is quiet, inviting, comfortable, lovely and VERY spacious. The owners were accountable, helpful and fill the unit with thoughtful extras (boogie boards, beach chairs, etc) to make the trip that much easier on everyone. It is within walking distance (one more of a five minute drive, one less than a mile) of two world class hotels and spas. The pool area on the condo grounds is resort worthy also. And the private beach and other local beach options are some of the best in the world (in our humble opinion). Our family would highly recommend this condo.

Owner's Response: It's really encouraging to read this. We're grateful you stayed with us. Yes, the pool next door is one of the best in the Mauna Lani Resort. And the owner's beach is truly amazing and one of the best in the world. We appreciate you. Mahalo.

Perfect place to relax

  • 5 of 5

Bill and Margaret were wonderful to deal with. They have thought of everything in their paperwork to help you plan and enjoy your stay. Access was easy, location was perfect and the condo was very comfortable and immaculate. We had everything we needed and lots more, fishing poles, beach gear, coolers, etc for day trips. Kitchen was stocked well and outdoor grill and lanai were great. The pool was right next door. We would definitely choose this property again and have already recommended it to friends.
