Fairways condo description
Review Submitted Date of Stay May 30, 2011
My husband and I stayed with our 5 year old and 9 month old at this property. It is definitely kid friendly (we only had to put a few smaller items out of reach from an exploring 9 month old!) and our daughter loved having her own bedroom with a bathroom and a window seat. This was probably the most well stocked and well equipped vacation rental we have ever stayed at - down to little swimmer diapers under the sink, laundry detergent in the laundry room and an ice maker on the fridge

While the Big Island is always incredible, our recent trip to Mauna Lani was truly one of the best because of our gorgeous accommodations in Jan's Fairway condo. The pictures and descriptions can't capture the quality, ambiance and location of this property. The accommodations are well decorated with attention to detail (pictures, furniture, kitchen amenities, electronics including TV, Music, etc) and you truly feel like you are at a 'home away from home'. Jan helped with the details of our stay and so many great suggestions for the surrounding area including food, beaches and activities. We've been to Mauna Lani many times without our children and the condo proved to be a perfect combination of luxury and location. We easily fit our family of four with room for at least two more if necessary. I highly recommend this property and we booked our trip for next year BEFORE we left the last day. Truly a paradise made even better by the accommodations and hospitality!
4/9/09 'This is a great spot. I have rented through VRBO many times and this home is one of our favorites, well equipped, clean and a great location.
Walk to Orchid Beach or use of private beach club, cooler, beach toys available

NOW OFFERING CONCIERGE SERVICES!
LET US SPOIL YOU in this beautifully decorated home in a Hawaiian Paradise. Travertine tile floors throughout the downstairs, granite & stainless kitchen stocked with the gourmet chef in mind, Viking gas barbecue on the lanai, lots of private areas for reading and contemplation of your tropical surroundings: a custom built window seat in the guest bedroom with a view towards the golf course and a comfy sitting room off the master bedroom looking out towards the pool.
Don't confuse our home with the small 2 bedroom units at Mauna Lani Fairways. OUR HOME IS THE SPACIOUS 2 story condominium (1700 sq.ft.) that has all the conveniences you will need including washer/dryer, Jacuzzi tub, and private baths in both guest and master suites.
For our guests who want to REMAIN CONNECTED, there is WI-Fi internet access throughout the house. 3 TVs, 2 DVD and Streaming Ne-Flix. A CD/Ipod set-up in our living room so you can bring your favorite music.
WE HAVE ONE OF THE BEST LOCATIONS AT THE FAIRWAYS AT MAUNA LANI. From the downstairs lanai looking out towards the pool, enjoy the lovely swaying palm trees, lush green lawns, and tropical plants while dining in semi-privacy as our home is tucked away from the pedestrian traffic areas. From the upstairs bedroom view the 7th hole of the North Mauna Lani golf course. From the second floor balcony, enjoy morning coffee while gazing at the beautiful Kohala mountains. Our North/South orientation provides protection from the famous trade winds off the mountains while delighting in outside living. ...and our location is distant from the large lava fields that encapsulate the golf course units.
Our guests have SPECIAL ACCESS TO THE HOMEOWNERS BEACH club that includes a full service restaurant and new cabanas along the beach. This is a wonderful snorkeling area for beginners and veteran snorkelers.
Stroll to the world famous Orchid hotel for evening poupus or walk to our nearby shopping center each morning for a morning coffee at our neighborhood market. Everything you need is at your fingertips for a relaxing vacation experience

It was our first time staying at Mauna Lani and we loved it. Location, location, location. The unit offers privacy yet is walking distance to the very nice swimming pool and the grounds are lovely. We enjoyed using the convenient outdoor grill and the unit was stocked very well and is very nicely furnished. We enjoyed walks around the property, visiting the hotels nearby and especially loved the private beach. The owners were helpful with tips on places to eat and we felt like we were in paradise sitting on the beach and then getting a cool cocktail at the nearby beach club. highly recommend.

Our family had a fantastic trip to Hawaii and loved staying at Jan's condo. It had everything we needed. The kids lived the green space and how close the pool was. My husband and I loved reading on the patio in the morning with a coffee. The beach club was nice and the kids had fun snorkeling and heading out on a kayak. Next time we come to Hawaii we will stay here again!

Had a wonderful time! The property had every amenity, the complex was pristine and beautiful. More than that, working with Jan and having a property manager nice and close was awesome. Thanks so much for letting us use your beautiful home.

Owner response: Thanks. It is so important to us to work with our guests to help make every vacation memorable.
Our family of 4 spent a week at the condo and had a great time. We will definitely be back. Making reservations with Jan was easy and the property manager, Larry, was very helpful. He gave us the necessary info before arrival and then met us at the unit shortly after our arrival and answered the few questions we had. It is a spacious unit with a well stocked kitchen. The décor is that of a nicely furnished home instead of your typical condo rental. The pantry had a variety of spices and laundry detergent and dishwasher soap were provided. The patio was great for breakfast and dinner. We made good use of the BBQ. The pool was just steps away and very nice to lounge around at. The upstairs balcony and reading room in the master bedroom made for very enjoyable relaxing afternoons. The private beach club is just a few minutes away by car on the other side of the Mauna Lani Hotel. It has a nice sandy beach with a variety of rentals such as stand up paddle boards, and scuba and snorkel equipment. The condo had beach towels and the beach club has lounge chairs as well as a grass area. Snorkeling was easy and there were a lot of fish and some turtles to see. We had a nice lunch at the restaurant. The Mauna Lani and Fairmont hotels are also just a short car ride away and great places for sunset drinks or just walking around. The Foodland market is within walking distance. It is very nice and well stocked. There is a Tommy Bahamas restaurant in the same center. It was a great place for dinner.

Fabulous vacation home

We stayed one week in this spacious, well decorated and clean townhouse - the unit was convenient to the pool, grocery shopping and the awesome Beach Club - a private owners' beach with cabanas galore and excellent snorkeling. Fairways at Mauna Lani is much less hectic than the Waikola area so I highly recommend this location and unit.

Great memoryGuest comment entered by owner
This morning I was thinking longingly about sitting on the patio at your place in the Mauna Lani. It made me realize that I hadn't thanked you and told you what a great time we had. It was the first extended trip Holly and I have taken without kids since our daughter was born 8 years ago! It was perfect. We love to cook and spent each morning making a great breakfast and sitting on the patio. Explored the island more than we've done in the past. We got to snorkel together, rather than trading off so someone could be with the kids on the beach. All in all it was terrific. Thanks for making it available. We'd love to do the trip again and will check back to see if you are still renting.

Excellent Rental for our Family of 4

We spent a wonderful week over Spring Break at this home. The whole process to book it with Jan was simple and the condo was exactly as advertised. Location is great, close to the Fairways pool (which was never too crowded, very clean, and a nice temperature) and to the Mauna Lani beach (nice to have the parking at the beach club, as it's too long a walk with kids and beach gear) and to nearby areas. The kitchen was very well equipped, probably the best for a condo rental that we have ever experienced. Cookware, flatware, dishes, grilling tools, etc, it was all there and in good condition. We used the BBQ nightly (highly recommend driving to Da Fish House in Kawaihae for fresh fish) and really enjoyed it. While we did not do too much exploring outside of the immediate area, there is a lot to do and all easily accessible (Mauna Kea beach and Waimea Farmers Market were worth the visits). We would definitely recommend this condo to friends or family and we hope to be back in the future.

We were very pleased with this accommodation! It is spacious, clean, well appointed, and in a great location. The bed was extremely comfortable. I love to cook, and the kitchen had all the gadgets necessary to whip up a fine meal. We love the fact that a private beach is available to people in this community. It has a lovely restaurant, as well. The owner was very accommodating and helpful. We're going back!!!

We stayed with our two children (aged 6 and 8). The condo is beautiful, comfortable, and very well-supplied. We really appreciated that it had things like spices and laundry soap. The pool area is wonderful and the grounds are beautiful. Mauni Lani is a fantastic resort; the beach club is great with easy access to snorkeling, seeing turtles on the beach, and a grocery store within the resort. The property manager and Jan were both very helpful and made booking, arriving, etc.. so easy. We have booked many different condos through VRBO and would highly highly recommend this condo. We will be back!

Year Purchased: 2006
About the owner: My father fell in love with Hawaii while working here in the 1960s. It became my parent's very favorite vacation destination. I have wonderful memories of vacationing on the Big Island with my entire family which soon included my own children too. My parents both died in 2003. I was grateful to be able to purchase our home away from home in 2006. Now my husband and I can pass on the legacy of family times in Hawaii to our grandchildren. We look forward to providing our guests with the same spirit of Aloha which we have enjoyed in this beautiful area.
Why the Owner Chose Fairways:
We loved the Fairways complex because of the spaciousness between units. We liked the townhouse design that avoids the neighbors above or the neighbors below. Our condo is built so well we never hear the neighbors next door. We find our particular unit to have a good deal of privacy as we look across spacious lawn and tropical gardens. Our three new plumeria trees will provide shade and more privacy as they grow.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
You can choose to have the relaxation of a lifetime in our wonderful home at Fairways or to be busy 24/7. Spend the day with a book gazing at the Pacific Ocean on the beach at our private beach club. Choose from a varied menu of food and drinks at the restuarant on site. OR, make a picnic, pack the cooler, bring the boogie boards, beach toys and hiking shoes and spend the day at the beach snorkeling, playing in the ocean and taking off from the beach to hike the fisherman's trail. Golf at our two beautiful courses and enjoy guest of owner rates. Shop at the Mauna Lani shops, and have dinner at restaurants ranging from Four Season's grill, to Blue Dragon, and Bamboo. Eat at the restaurants right on property such as Tommy Bahama's or Ruth Chris Steak House. Travel far afield. Hike the coast or the cool mountain trails, see the volcano flowing into the sea at night, enjoy a once in a lifetime experience of sunset at the top of 13,000 foot Mauna Lani, or learn about Hawaiian history at the City of Refuge. Once back home, enjoy dinner on our lanai fixed with local food from our farmer's markets and fresh fish markets. Find information about all these wonderful activities in our notebook and tour books in your home away from home at 1703 Fairways, Mauna Lani. Aloha
