Fantastic Vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was the best experience we have ever had with renting vacation homes! We loved the place, it was FANTASTIC - it had everything we could ever wish for, and was awesome for the children too....very child friendly, with hi chair and crib. We used the pool and facilities a little, particularly enjoyed the private beach nearby...can't write highly enough about this place.

Thank you so much for equipping this place so thoughtfully and well, and for letting us stay here.

Great vacation condo for a small family or couple.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our vacation at this clean and comfortable condo. It is in the center of a six-plex building within a very well maintained, gated community at Mauna Lani Resort. As one of the center units, the back side living area and upstairs master suite is completely private with a lovely view of a native area, golf course and distant mountain. Lots of colorful birds singing in the native area each morning. The upstairs second bedroom faces north and thus stays nice and cool while enjoying the street-side view. The complex boasts a beautiful swimming pool with extensive park-like gardens outside the pool fence. We enjoyed the Mauna Lani amenities daily including snorkeling, a great beach and walking paths through the historic fishponds. There is much more to do at Mauna Lani Resort if you are so inclined.

Serene but with adventure close by

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four (two young adult sons, my husband and me) had a very special holiday here. We love being outside and doing active things, but we also like some occasional "nesting" on vacation. This condo was an easy place to be - great kitchen and a sweet little lanai where we enjoyed many lazy breakfasts and great conversation. The pool was a quick walk away - a perfect place to enjoy the water and plan the next day's adventure. Snorkeling at the nearby beach club delightful. The condo was so thoughtfully stocked - beach towels and paraphernalia ready to go in the garage, and everything we needed to pull together some great meals and work on making the perfect mai tai. All was peaceful; never heard a neighbor or traffic, yet we were five minutes from a great store. With Gail's recommendations for restaurants, groceries, etc., we were set! Weather during our December stay was about the warmest and driest (we know; we drove all over the island!). Highly recommended for whatever type of vacation you are dreaming of. We hope to return.

About Gail Baker

I have had a love of the Hawaiian Islands since the 1970's when I moved to Lahaina, Maui for a 9 month stay. Dave and I chose the Big Island because it is more low key and less crowded than Maui. We chose Mauna Lani because of the incredible amenities available to us and our guests. We love the two spectacular golf courses, the tennis center, homeowners beach with fabulous snorkeling, and the beautiful walks. We also found so many white sand beaches to choose from in close proximity to our town home. We have found our Heaven!!

Gail Baker purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Gail Baker chose Puako

We chose the Fairways at Mauna Lani because of the proximity to the beautiful Fairmont Orchid, the spacious floor plan, the golf course view, the quiet surroundings, and the spectacular grounds. I have seen all the other town homes complexes and I would not move anywhere because the Fairways is the best.

What makes this townhome unique

We enjoy the discounted golf, Kayaking and Stand Up Paddle Boarding in the beautiful blue waters, swimming laps in our pool, and using the great gym on our property. This is our second home so we have furnished it beautifully and the kitchen has everything you could possibly need. We have added a screen door on the front door so that it can be left open and the back slider can be open to get the wonderful cross breeze. Air conditioning isn't even necessary most of the time with the screen doors. It is so much more comfortable than the air conditioning. I love our view of the golf course and the lava in between. It is so unique and beautiful.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Lovely Hawaiian home- couldn't and wouldn't do it any better in furnishings & extras. Homeowners beach is awesome & the snorkeling was fantastic. Drove to Captain Cook's Bay, dolphins swam with us in the kayak (rent them right there)& tons of fish! Great walking out the door to beach path either direction. Want to come back ASAP.

Car: recommended

The Big Island has so many things to do it is hard to tell it all. The Kohala Coast has the best weather and the best beaches anywhere. The walks from our house are spectacular with a special Petroglyph walk that you can take young children or older people.

Zip lining is about 45 minutes away in a beautiful area that is lush and in a special area with other things to enjoy while you are there.

There are numerous hikes that are worth the time and effort and I can tell you more about those if you are interested.

You can swim with the dolphins at the Hilton in Waikola or you can go on a boat where they will most likely find dolphins to swim with in the open ocean.

The Beach Club is great for young kids to play in the water because there are no waves. It is the best snorkeling, and the Bay is good for learning Stand Up Paddle Boarding. You can go scuba diving with a great company right from the club. There is also a catamaran that goes out on different excursions including a Sunset Cruise or whale watching.

The tennis at Mauna Lani or at Mauna Kea is very good and they will help to put matches together for you.

Golf at Mauna Lani is my favorite anywhere. My son has played the best courses in Arizona and Tahoe and his favorites are by far and away Mauna Lani!

Horse back riding is available in Waimea.

There are so many more things to do that you will just have to call me to talk about them.
