The private location within short walking distance to the gorgeous pool will surely make you relax and smile as you make your home here.

Situated in the Mauna Lani Resort our town home is five star, second to none, Beach Club access included!

Fairways at Mauna Lani on the Kohala Coast is the very best!

Close to all the best beaches!

Bicycles and standup paddle board provided!

The Fariways is a luxurious gated community in the renowned Mauna Lani Resort on the South Kohala Coast of Hawaii. The South Kohala Coast rests in the protection of the rain shadow of the Mauna Kea Volcano which, at 13,796 feet is the highest point on the Island. As a result, the South Kohala Coast enjoys the most sunshine and the least rain on the Big Island.

The Fairways is a short 5 minute walk, in one direction, to the beautiful Fairmont Orchid and, in the other direction, to the Shops at Mauna Lani. The Orchid offers elegant dining at Brown’s Beach House, or Norio’s Steakhouse and Sushi Bar, or beautiful cocktails and sunsets as the conch is blown, at the Luana Lounge.

At the Shops you will find a gourmet grocery store and you can browse fanciful art galleries, purchase up-to-the-minute resort wear, or relax over a wonderful meal at Ruth’s Chris Steak House, Monstera Sushi or the restaurant/lounge on the balcony at Tommy Bahamas.

A beach walk of 20 minutes will take you to the Mauna Lani Resort Hotel just up the coast, where their ocean-front Canoe House restaurant delivers meals and moments you won’t forget.

A 10 minute drive south down the highway will take you to Waikaloa Resort, where the King’s Shops and Queen’s Marketplace offer additional variety for golf, restaurants and shops, while Hapuna and Mauna Kea golf courses are just a 10 minute drive north, with the acclaimed Hapuna Beach a must stop.

The Mauna Lani resort area claims 2 championship golf courses, the North and South courses at the Francis H. I’i Brown Golf Club. When staying with us you are eligible for discounted green fees on either of these immaculate tracks. The welcoming staff will ensure you are well taken care of. Additionally there are acres of walking trails throughout the resort, wandering through lush gardens and black lava expanses. One can examine the Pualo petroglyphs left almost 300 years ago by ancient Hawaiians. The Honu (Hawaiian Green Sea Turtles) are numerous here and one can see them sunning themselves on many beaches. The Mauna Lani Resort Hotel raises baby turtles in their saltwater ponds and releases them into the wild when they reach sufficient size, with appropriate pomp and ceremony, on Turtle Independence Day every July 4th. Also there are the Kalahuipua’a Fish Ponds evidencing the sophistication of the ancient Hawaiian aquaculture. Between December and March the Islands are visited by Humpback whales as they stop to deliver and raise calves on their journey between the hemispheres, and they present a show, breaching out of the blue waters between the Big Island and Maui.

The resort is also just down the road from Blue Hawaii who offer helicopter tours of the Kilauea volcano and the mountains, waterfalls and highlands of the Island.

As our guest, you will have access to the Mauna Lani Private Beach Club (see pictures), just a 5 minute drive south within the resort. While the beach is not private (none are in Hawaii) this access entitles you to park and enjoy the lounge chairs and the canopied beach beds, as well as the Napua restaurant/lounge located there. The beach is a protected enclave of sugar white sand, and the snorkeling is amazing. While we supply some water gear, what we don't have can be rented just beside the beach.

Our 1900 square foot 3 bedroom, 2 ½ bath townhome has been furnished with guests in mind. The gourmet kitchen features stainless steel appliances, granite countertops and endless cupboard space stocked with everything one might need, with stools at the kitchen bar to allow those not creating magic within the kitchen to bear witness and socialize. Just off the kitchen is the laundry with full size washer and dryer.

The dining table is set for six, but the Lanai with built in BBQ is and great dining and Daybed is where we usually dine! Adjacent is the living room area with a 60” flat screen TV , Free wifi is available. The lanai looks out on the immaculate landscaping of the Mauna Lani Golf Course & on most days you can see Maui in the distance and is accessible from either the living room or the master bedroom. It is furnished with dining table and loungers, next to the built-in Viking grill and wet bar.

The master bedroom has a King size bed and 40” flat screen TV. The master ensuite boasts a dual vanity, an oversize tub with separate shower and walk-in closet. Upstairs, the 2 bedrooms have 1 King size with flat screen TV and 2 twins and a full size bathroom.

Just down from our unit is the flawless pool area. Near the pool are landscaped areas with waterfalls and a large hot tub.

We invite you to come, stay at our home and explore the Big Island. We know you will love it, just as much as we do!

Why Pamela Guth chose Puako

The Kohala Coast has been our dream for 24 years! The beaches are simply the best and not overcrowded! The trails along the coast are breathtaking! The small towns, food, and welcoming culture of Aloha draw you in and make you never want to leave! The Big Island is huge and as wonderful as the many people who call it home. So many places to explore!

After a professional career in design, art and travel, we were really impressed with the luxurious finishes, comfort and location that this town home had to offer and 3 bedrooms is a huge plus!

What makes this townhome unique

Mauna Lani is a special resort, the private Beach Club access is just the best. Go snorkeling every day! Have lunch at Napua!

Cook on your Lanai! Play Golf! Walk along the tide pools or through the ancient stunningly beautiful fishponds!

Gorgeous, spacious & comfortable home. Stunning private beach.

  • 5 of 5

5 stars++

We had an amazing vacation staying here. Our family of 6- (3 couples) came to Hawaii to celebrate our parents 45th Anniversary. We found this home spacious & we all had privacy. This home is elegantly decorated & spotlessly clean. Exceeded our expectations. Everything needed was provided. Fabulous kitchen! Friendly & quiet neighbourhood. Peaceful lanai overlooking golf course w/comfortable seating. Private beach was stunning, quiet & had spectacular snorkeling. Beaches on this side of the island are breathtaking, we visited many of them. Grocery store, coffee shop & restaurants very closeby. Property manager is very quick to respond & very easy to work with. Thanks Tom for your help during our stay & Darin prior to our stay. Our stay was amazing & seamless! We are looking forward to returning!

Amazing townhouse in the perfect holiday location

  • 5 of 5

We were wow'ed as soon as we arrived! The well-appointed townhouse is beautiful, spacious and perfectly located. Definitely a feeling of luxury!! Everything was clean and well-maintained upon our arrival and the customer service we received before and during our stay was outstanding. The unit itself is situated in a great spot on the property, backing onto the golf course (super peaceful and amazing sunset views over the ocean), and only steps from a large and inviting pool and jacuzzi. Having the outdoor BBQ kitchen on the unit's lanai was such a wonderful bonus (we spent most mornings and evenings on the lanai enjoying the vistas). What can we say about the access to the beach club but … YEAY; AMAZING!! It's the perfect spot for sunbathing and snorkeling (we saw turtles every day we were there), and because it's on a protected bay it's a fantastic place for stand-up paddle-boarding. Since we had a van, we were able to easily transport the unit's paddleboard to the beach club and thoroughly appreciated being able to do that. The beach café there had great lunches too! We also very much appreciated the unit's bikes -the kids had a routine of touring around the property on the bikes before dinner. When we ventured out, we were close to everything (some of the Island's very best beaches (such as Hapuna and Mauna Kea), shopping, spas and restaurants were just short drives away). But with such a wonderful "home away from home" we were also very content to just chill-out and relax at the unit in our little slice of paradise. We highly, highly recommend this Mauna Lani townhouse -we would definitely love to book again should we be lucky enough to find ourselves back on the big Island.

Very impressive property

  • 5 of 5

Six family members spent 10 days at this wonderful property. It’s beautiful and had everything we needed, just like at home. We loved the location to the restaurants, great little shopping center and spectacular golf course. It was easy to find, Tom the manager, was very accommodating. We all hope to return to this beautiful home someday. We’ll miss that great patio and the was a piece of paradise..

Perfect place to spend a vacation

  • 5 of 5

Loved the accommodations! The condo is tastefully done and very very comfortable! Loved how close you are to everything but felt separated when we wanted to be! The liane was a hit! We thought the kitchen was terrific because it was open and we could talk to everyone when we made our meals! The pool and grounds were maintained and clean! Just had the time of our lives! We would go back and n a heart beat and encourage all to look at this spot!
