About Larry McGoff

We came to visit our home in the fall of 2009 and never went back home to Whidbey Island in Washington State. We own Kohala Tradewinds, a property Concierge Business and are part owners in Daylight Mind Coffee Company which has three restaurant locations here west Hawaii. Marty is their Executive Pastry Chef. We live here with our two dogs, Desi and Lucy our cat CC and our Love Bird Laka.

Larry McGoff purchased this townhome in 2009

Why Larry McGoff chose Puako

We purchased at the Mauna Lani Fairways for its beautiful design and construction, great location to several beaches, resorts, fine dining, golf, shopping and lovely warm climate.

What makes this townhome unique

The pool and gym are steps away from our unit and is as lovely in the evening floating on your back star gazing as it is looking up at the blue sky’s and beautiful palm trees of day light. The views from the upper lanai are wonderful both day and night and we love the gourmet kitchen and all it has to offer. The privacy between floors (bedrooms and baths) is also a big plus with our unit as it makes for a private setting in each area.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Mahalo for one of the loveliest visits and stay on the Big Island! From the moment we walked into the condo we felt every want/need had been anticipated and taken care off. No stone was left unturned. A spotless well appointed decor, well stocked kitchen , fit for a professional chief, to the central and convenient location of the condo. We started our days snorkeling @ The Beach Club, and finished our nights by swimming in the conviently located pool, looking up at the moon light through the Palm Trees.It is truly Paradise. Thank you Larry and Marty for your thoughtfulness and professionalism, you and your place are second to none.

Outstanding property. Fully stocked. We wanted for nothing.

  • 5 of 5

The owners personal touches and detailed information obout the big island made planning our vacation activities easy. The concierge was knowledgeable and helpful. The beach access was a great perk that we used daily. I can highly recommend this property.

Paradise Found!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely perfect choice. Everything you could possibly want or need during a short or long vacation is at your disposal. The property is located in a great location close to shopping, great dining choices along with access to the fantastic Mauna Lani Beach Club. Short walk to the beach adjacent to the Fairmont Orchid and the Petroglyphs trail. The pool and fitness facility are steps away and very nice as well. The owner has done a fantastic job of making his home -

your home away from home. This is a MUST Stay property!!!

Perfect home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and our two boys enjoyed 2 weeks here over the Christmas holiday this year. The condo was perfect! Very clean, organized, plenty of space to feel like home and perfectly stocked with everything we needed. Being a cook, the kitchen was the best and made me feel like I was at home cooking in my own kitchen. They have everything you could possibly need; spices, oils, condiments. We enjoyed all of our meals outside on the patio. Something we can't do it home in December.

The grounds were beautiful and we enjoyed many hours playing in the swimming pool, just steps away from our condo. Some days having the pool to ourselves!

The location was perfect for our needs. A short walk to the Fairmont (spent a few wonderful days at the public beach), a short drive to the Beach Club (you are given a card to enter here) and having the shopping area around the corner was very convenient. Great restaurants, cute shops and wonderful grocery store. Several great parks, beaches and fun small towns just 20 minutes from the condo.

Larry was available for any questions we had and was very helpful giving us tips on the island before and while we were vacationing.

The island is very large and we only checked a few things off the list and will definitely be back. Thank you for the wonderful time for my family! Memories to last a life time.

Aloha, the Johnson family

Extremely well-equipped and comfortable townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 3 spent nine very comfortable and enjoyable nights in this rental. As others have stated, it is very clean and nicely furnished. We have stayed in countless VRBO rentals around the world, and this was definitely the most well equipped we have ever seen. Mauna Lani is conveniently located to some fantastic beaches. Larry was very responsive to any questions or needs we had. I would suggest people sleeping in the downstairs bedroom bring eye shades as the room isn't very dark at night. We look forward to returning soon.

The best in Mauna Lani!!

  • 5 of 5

This is my 6th trip to the island and my 3rd stay in Mauna Lani. I would say without hesitation that this is the best VRBO I've ever stayed at!! Top notch. Larry is amazing to deal with. The place is stocked!! It felt like being at home. The kitchen is not missing one thing. Tons of towels, bedding, and soap. Fully stocked laundry room. Things that come in handy during a stay on the island. The lanai was private and gorgeous. The beds were super comfy. I don't have one complaint about this property. Don't miss out on this gem!!
