About the property

2 Story Townhome, 1646 Sqft Indoors With 2 Lanais In A Lush Tropical Setting

The Fairways: Just 20 minutes north of Kona Airport in the beautiful Mauna Lani Resort and ideally situated between the Fairmont Orchid Hotel and the Shops of Mauna Lani and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. The Fairways is an impeccably maintained luxury gated community on over 20 acres adjacent to the Francis H. Brown North Golf course, one of two championship golf courses within Mauna Lani (your stay includes discounted guest golf rates at both).

Amenities at the Fairways include a large BBQ pavilion, large and luxurious free form swimming pool, spa, waterfalls, and a fitness center with a/c.

Hale O' Honu'ea: Stay in this beautifully furnished 2 bedroom townhome, with polished granite and stainless steel gourmet kitchen, 2 1/2 baths and 1 car garage and relax in over 1600 square feet of indoor living in a spacious open layout.

The tranquil Lanai off the main floor includes a wet bar, Viking grill/rotisserie and dining seating for 6.

The floor plan here is ideal for privacy and comfort with both bedrooms upstairs away from the main living area and on far ends of the home, each with an ensuite full bathroom.

The master suite includes a den sitting area, ensuite with jacuzzi tub and private lanai that together with the downstairs lanai extends the living space to over 2000 square feet. Enjoy the view of the naturalized golf course landscaping and the 11th green of the north course in the distance.

Your stay at Hale O' Honu'ea includes a gate pass to owners parking at the semi-private Beach Club with ocean-side restaurant, coral reef snorkeling and white sand beach. Covered cabanas and sunbathing chairs are on the beach for guests of property owners only, so all you need to bring are the towels, boogie boards and sand toys that we provide and your sunblock!

Water enthusiasts can rent stand-up paddle boards, surf boards, outriggers and other equipment adjacent to the beach or even join a snorkel, whale-watch (in season), scuba dive, or sunset cruise.

Within Mauna Lani you can explore the lesser known 49 Black Sand Beach or the one of the five white sand beaches and waterfront, the historic petroglyphs and ancient fish ponds, and enjoy the free cultural activities offered at the Shops of Mauna Lani. Meet turtles swimming in the ocean, sunning on the rocks or those that are part of the Mauna Lani honu preservation program.

Enjoy discounted guest rates at both the North and South Frances H. I'i Brown Golf Courses.

Exploring beyond Mauna Lani? We have provided cooler bags, beach chairs and guide books (and are happy to give you more ideas if you ask).

About Jeff and Sonia

My wife and I have a young family and we have been visiting the Hawaiian islands for almost a decade to escape the cold winters (and even the cool summers) of the Pacific Northwest. We are both competitive athletes and have done dozens of marathons and triathlons all over the world including Ironman distance races. In fact, we first found the Fairways at Mauna Lani racing the Honu 70.3.

We have 2 young children and enjoy traveling anywhere we can enjoy good food, good weather, different cultures - and still play in the outdoors.

Jeff and Sonia purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Jeff and Sonia chose Kohala Coast

We found ourselves returning to Mauna Lani more than any place else in the tropics. What we love most about Mauna Lani is that it offers privacy away from the crowds elsewhere yet offers the convenience of close by restaurants and shops when you want them. It has beautiful calm waters for safe snorkeling, waves (when you want them) for surfing, and nature abounds with the turtles, coral reef, dolphin and whale sightings. There are miles of running and cycling right out the door.

We stayed at other properties within Mauna Lani but feel that the grounds, large free form pool, spa and location of the Fairways are the perfect combination of private yet convenient to the amenities of the rest of the resort as it is close enough to walk to the Fairmont Orchid and Shops of Mauna Lani.

What makes this townhome unique

We chose Hale O' Honu'ea because of all the floorplans we've stayed in Mauna Lani, it suits our family and friends the best. All bedrooms are upstairs which makes us feel safe; the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the townhome so they feel private; each has it's own ensuite bathroom for convenience; the open floor plan of the main living space and windows on the upper floor allow the island breeze to move through.

We've made updates to make it even more comfortable and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Our daughter named 'Hale O' Honu'ea', Home of the Hawksbill Turtle. In conjunction with Oahu's Sea Life Park, Mauna Lani Resort raises honu (the green sea turtle) releases them when mature, helping the comeback of honu. The native Hawksbill turtle, or Honu'ea, is more endangered and the Big Island is one of it's few nesting places. Our family hopes someday to see the Honu'ea frequenting the waters of Mauna Lani too.

We are transitioning to our condo to be more 'green'. We've installed ceiling fans and screens to enjoy the island breeze. We provide personal amenity dispensers that reduce plastic bottle waste of typical hotel 'travel size' products. We are converting to CFL and LED lighting. We've chosen BPA-free acrylics for outdoor drinkware. We provide environmentally responsible detergents and will continue to transition to like products throughout Hale O' Honu'ea. We admit that we have far to go, but we feel these small steps are all in the right direction to protect the natural beauty of this special place.

Great property and location

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time in this property for our family vacation. We were a family of 4, with 2 teenage boys. It was very clean and well kept with plenty of amenities. The boys loved riding the bikes and we enjoyed the pool several times. We made dinner in and packed lunch, water and snacks for the beach in the bags and coolers provided. Great location for beaches and sight seeing in the area. Very responsive and helpful owners made it a great vacation for us and to be prepared for our trip. We only regret not having more time to see more of the island.

Owner's Response: It sounds like your family was able to enjoy a lot of the island, and I'm glad that you found the amenities and the amenity list useful. It's easier to travel to Hawaii when you just have to pack your sandals and swim suit and not need to worry about things like beach bags and coolers! We hope you stay with us again. Mahalo, Sonia

Luxury Accomodations

  • 5 of 5

Very clean and spacious rooms. Master suite and second bedroom are actually separate suites allowing for great privacy. Private lanai on both floors. This home faces lush green vegetation and golf course views instead of other condos. Top quality kitchen and outdoor Viking grill. The beach toys (snorkels, fins and boards) were all very good quality.

Fantastic island getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four loved this condo. It had everything we needed for our vacation at Christmas, and Sonia was so gracious in answering my many questions. We especially loved the Beach Club where we lounged in the cabanas, and snorkeled almost every day. We will definitely stay here again if the home is avaiable.

Great property

  • 5 of 5

This property worked really well for our purposes while visiting family. All the little things you could ask for were available in the bathrooms, garage and kitchen, as well as great instructions for how to get around the complex and the area. We appreciated that there was a dedicated parking garage, as opposed to just strictly street parking. The owner's responses to all our inquiries were very prompt. The jacuzzi on site is awesome. We hope to be able to stay here again and would highly recommend it to any interested parties. Thanks so much for a wonderful time!

Lovely townhouse in beautiful area

  • 5 of 5

We were just two people rambling around in this large 2 bedroom, 2 1/2 bath home - but not complaining. The furnishings, linens and kitchen amenities were great. Loved the air conditioning - which was absolutely necessary.

Beaches, restaurants, a good grocery store, and even petroglyphs were close by. An ocean view would have been nice, but then I'm sure we would have had to pay a lot more. Beautiful place to stay!

Beyond our expectations!!

  • 5 of 5

Oh where to start! Wonderful experience from start to end. Owner Sonia goes above and beyond to make her townhome a wonderful place to stay in. We have no words to express our gratitude. We have rented several places through VRBO in different parts of the country and this one takes the cake, A+ customer service. Sonia your attention to detail to your home and your excellent customer service, from mailing us the island guide magazine before our trip and to the umbrella situation...wow!! We would loved to stay here again in the near future. Best regards ~ Ochoa Family

Owner's Response: Aloha - and thank you for your feedback. I'm glad we were able to get the umbrellas in time for your stay - they're something I've been meaning to add to the town home, but sometimes shopping on the Big Island is challenging! I hope you look us up again when you return to the Big Island. Mahalo, Sonia
