Fairways townhome description
From the moment you enter our well-appointed Villa at the Mauna Lani you will feel like you've entered a dream. Quiet and peaceful, with expansive views of lush tropical landscaping and swaying palms against bright blue skies, our villa is in a prime location. Away from the road, yet a short walk through the gardens to the pool's edged with a black lava rock waterfall.
The Fairways Complex at Mauna Lani is the CLOSEST town home group TO THE BEACH. Our Villa is conveniently located to the private gated entrance where a 7 minute walk under a flowering tree canopy brings you to the doorways of the luxurious Fairmont Orchid Resort. This prime location means you can walk (in 7 minutes) to the Orchid hotel and it's spa, restaurants and relaxing veranda with amazing ocean views. After another 3 minutes stroll through the marbled foyer and tropical grounds you will find yourself at the beach. From the door of the villa you can walk right out and enjoy morning and sunset strolls that quickly take you to the coastal path that follows the ocean's edge. You can also walk in 10 minutes to the Mauna Lani Shops where there is live outdoor entertainment, restaurants, shopping and groceries. If you prefer, jump on our two Mountain Bikes and explore the resort.
The Mauna Lani area is an amazing place to relax while enjoying the luxuries of two of Hawaii's finest resorts... The Fairmont Orchid and The Mauna Lani. Besides walking there is gated parking for resort guests only at the hotel and Beach Club, or if you prefer, drive down in a moment and take advantage of complimentary valet parking.
Choose from several 'toes in the sand' beachside restaurants with breathtaking ocean views, or find one of several private coves to enjoy that special moment as a family or couple and watch the turtles warm themselves in the sand. Enjoy gracious living in our comfortable and spacious Island Dreams Villa.

Julie and Tyler have thought of everything to make your stay as comfortable as possible. They are also reachable by phone as is their house manager Lorraine who lives about 30 minutes away. We have stayed in many condos, apartments, hotel rooms bed and breakfasts etc in Europe(1/2 our family lives there) in the U.S., Canada and in Mexico. We have been to Hawaii countless times including the Big Island at least eight and we can tell you that all the comments from others are very true. My wife's 60th birthday was memorable because of the appointments, the size of this villa, the location,the proximity and access to two of the finest hotels on the Kohala Coast. Just a tip of running the gamut,from the beautiful views at the Mauna Lani Canoe House and eating the Kona Cold Lobster to Huggos On the Rocks for heavy apps, good Kona beer,a young crowd, and rocking entertainment and dancing. WOW your well thought out visitor's guide made our two weeks go by so fast. Thanks and we can't wait to get back. Sept-Oct 2007. Rob and Mimi

A great stay on Big Island
A great stay on Big Island
Our stay at the Island Dreams Villa was great. The accommodations were exactly as described with lots of fun things provided for both adults and kids (although ours is too little to use these yet). Everything was very neatly organized and instructions were absolutely clear. The location is great: the area is quiet with a 5-minute drive to the private beach club that we used all the time. Also Hapuna Beach is only a 10 minute drive away for those who want a bigger beach with some strong wave action. I would definitely recommend staying there and probably will try to come back someday. Thank you Julie.

The villa had everything we needed. Loved the short distance to all the places. The secluded beach area was perfect Julie, just like you said. We all had a great time. Thank you Julie for opening your beautiful place to us. The dean and Herrmann family

Luxury on a Budget

We loved our stay at Island Dreams. It felt like home after only the 6 days we were there. We travelled on to Maui afterwards and the whole time I dreamed of being back at this place with the the quiet and beauty of the fairways and the surrounding area. Our family of 4 (two preteens) settled in so comfortably. Everything was available, including a ton of board games which our kids played everytime we had a spare moment. Be warned the grounds are extremely quiet. We did often have the pool to ourselves, which while nice meant that the kids were a little lonely. I laughed in hindsite that I had worried about the safety of the kids roaming the grounds by themselves, not an issue here! I did long walks every morning and enjoyed the beautiful scenery of the coast by the Fairmont Orchid and Mauna Lani hotel grounds. This unit is what made our visit so satisfying. It feels like a luxury home, all the little details are accomodated for, the furnishings are deluxe and make you feel like you are in a home, not a vacation rental. The owners obviously care about this unit and that you enjoy your stay. We did have a few little "critters" on the kitchen floor in the mornings, even though we kept everything very clean. I understand that is part of Hawaii and to be expected... We have even begun looking at purchasing a unit such as this, as I can not believe the value you get for your rental dollar here! We paid over $200 per night for our following stay in Maui for a 1 bedroom closet!

Owner response: We don't think Critters are okay! With some new and improved efforts and even more eco friendly pest control we haven't seen any critters in a long while. Thankfully!

Our stay at this Villa was exceptional and this unit is very well equipped. Everything the owner promised us was there and exactly as we'd expected. The ambience is superb. The grounds and Village is well maintained. You need to be aware the whole island has it's problems with critters and this Village is no exception. The owners do everything they can to curtail this problem, but don't be alarmed if you should see a few, it's normal in HI. You will not be disappointed with this choice.

We had a wonderful vacation at Julie's Island Dreams Villa. The accommodations were clean and very nice, we found being on the first floor with the door opening to a (safe) grassy area to be great for our two year old. We stayed with another family who had a one year old and it was a great location for babies- easy beach access a drive away, pool right into the complex. Would definitely stay there again.

Your vacation villa was perfect for our family vacation, which included two grandparents, two parents, and a happy little two-year old girl. We all found the house comfortable and extremely well equipped. The cooks among us really appreciate the kitchen which had absolutely everything we needed. Having all the equipment for a toddler made our stay easier and our travel less burdened down with gear. Thank you!

Recently returned from a extremely pleasurable stay at Island Dreams Villa with our two young adult children. Julie has provided every convenience in a clean and beautifully organized corner condo. We enjoyed our week on the Big Island and roomy, lovely accomodation.

Mahalo for making your fabulous villa available to others -- we loved it from the minute we walked in the door. Well-appointed, spacious, thoughtfully decorated yet family friendly for parents who showed up with a wide-eyed two-year old (thanks for all the items that made this a truly "kid-friendly" home). It was a perfect location for enjoying the wonderful Kohala coast. Loved the access to the private beach (great snorkeling), the easy drive to the white sands of Hapuna beach, and proximity to shops, restaurants, and wonderful resort amenities. Our combo anniversary/Hawaii 5-0 birthday trip was a great success, and this was one of the most positive experiences we've had renting a vacation home.
