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 Kohala Coast

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.

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.

We really enjoyed our stay here. It seemed to have everything we needed. It has great views and is set in a really nice community. I would stay here again for sure.

Great property, but...

  • 4 of 5

Like:

* Kitchen: have all gadgets for meal prep

* Lanai: we enjoy eating on the lanai overlooking the golf course

* Big master ensuite

* Club beach: a short drive away

* Basic pool in the compound

* Basic grocery store is a short stroll away

Dislike:

* The townhouse is at Kohala coast. It is about 30 minutes to Kona where most of the restaurants are, the location is not ideal for us

* There is no door between the master bedroom and ensuite

Owner's Response: In my rental information I gave numerous suggestions for dining on the Kohala Coast as well as showed them in our rental binder on the property. I am sorry you didn't take any of my recommendations. I feel that the food is much higher quality along the Kohala Coast than in Kona. I don't remember a memorable meal I have had in Kona. If you are looking for more crazy nightlife then Kona would be a better place to stay but if you are looking for the best beaches and the most beautiful area Mauna Lani is the place. As far as there is no door in the master bathroom it is quite far away from the actual bedroom because the study with the chaise is closer and there is a door to the toilet room. Most couples don't seem to mind and like that the bathroom is more open so that it doesn't get as hot. I put a fan in the study area that helps to cool down the bathroom too.

  • 5 of 5

Our family of five enjoyed a three week stay in Dec. 2015.

Gail and Dave's place is clean, spacious and quiet, with a very well appointed household and bonus beach supplies, coolers etc.

Enjoyed the private lanai's and BBQ.

Great location, close to Kohala beaches/activities or just for a walk or run in Mani Lani.

The Fairways offers well maintained and landscaped grounds, pool and a small, but functional fitness room.

Mani lani beach resort is great; really good snorkeling or just relaxing on the beach. Check-out the fisherman's trail to Waikoloa resort.

Definitely worth a visit.

Mahalo Gail and Dave.

Staying at Gail and Dave's Fairways condo was a fabulous experience. The unit was beautifully decorated, clean, spacious and equipped with everything you'd need for a tropical vacation. Not only did their garage come stocked with all beach necessities, but it was nice to store things like our SUP, golf clubs, bikes, etc. The view from the two lanais were beautiful, private and PEACEFUL!!! The Mauna Lani Beach Club and Restaurant provided hours of entertainment/relaxation. The sunsets were amazing and the snorkeling was incredible with very calm water and lots to see! The close proximity of restaurants like Tommy Bahama (great happy hours and music), shops, the grocery store and golf were perfect for out stay. The entire Mauna Lani resort area was quiet and provided lots of space (w minimal traffic) for walking, running and biking. We would highly recommend this unit and can't wait to return for our next stay:)

Beautiful home base in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We just got back from our third stay in Gail & Dave's beautiful Fairways condo, and once again, we wished we never had to leave! The kids, ages 3 and 7, loved having their own beds (the change to two twin beds in the second bedroom was a win for us!). The condo is clean, nicely appointed, and well-located, with everything you need in the kitchen, all the beach stuff in the garage, and several different spaces for family hangouts -- it was beyond wonderful to have breakfast together out on the lanai every morning. We went to the beach club every day (the kids stayed more or less on California time the whole two weeks, which meant we always had our choice of the cabanas -- ha!), and grilled on the awesome Viking range outdoors most nights. I recommend this condo to everyone I know (although I hope I don't generate *too* much demand, so we can still have "our" place again each summer!). Mahalo, Gail and Dave, for the Aloha!

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.
