Our 'home away from home' townhome is the perfect place to enjoy your vacation! It is luxuriously decorated with top of the line furnishings and orginal art work, yet extremely comfortable and welcoming. Since our townhome is NOT a full-time rental, you can relax in quality and comfort! This townhome is all about location, location, location! It is just steps across the grass to the ultra quiet, tropical free-form pool and spa. Enjoy watching your family in the pool, while grilling dinner on the lanai using the built-in Viking BBQ! Wake up to magnificent sunrises with views of both Mauna Loa and Mauna Kea!

Our townhome features the much desired 'A' floor plan with 2 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms and over 1600 square feet of living area, PLUS 428 square feet of lanai! In our private single car garage you will find boogie boards, snorkel gear, (4) adult bicycles, scooters(Razor), beach chairs, a rolling cooler, pool toys, umbrellas and more! All for your use while you are staying with us... ample parking is just steps away!

About Laura

I grew up on the island of Maui, but had never been to the Big Island of Hawaii until roughly 5 years ago...and I fell in love! My husband and I (along with our good friends the McDaniels) decided we just had to buy our 'home away from home' on the island of Hawaii! We found just the perfect place in the Mauna Lani Resort; at The Fairways at Mauna Lani. A tranquil and beautiful resort property with views of the volcanoes (Mauna Loa, Mauna Kea, and Kohala) and the rock lava waterfall at the beautifully landscaped free-form pool. We feel such peace when on the island, and we know you will too! Laura (pictured) and Phil Catalon/Dolores and Randy McDaniel

Laura purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Laura chose Puako

We bought our 'home away from home' on the Big Island of Hawaii because we fell in love with island itself. It truly is a beautiful and magical place! The island is large and offers diverse landscapes, terrains, and climates...from the sunny and dry Kona Side to the green and lush Hilo Side. Five volcanoes, gorgeous beaches, and endless beauty abound on this island!

What makes this townhome unique

We have designed out townhome to be welcoming, relaxing, and elegant all at the same time. We have given special attention to the comfort level of all the furnishings...plush fabrics, teak woods, and original Hawaiian artwork fill our townhome. Our family is our number one priority (and we know yours is too!), so we have provided some 'extras' that make travelling with the family (old and young alike) a little easier.... We have four new bicycles for you to use around the resort, 2 razor scooters for the kids, snorkel gear, boogie boards, and tons of beach paraphernalia, pool toys, a highchair and port-a-crib if traveling with a little one, and we keep a fully stocked kitchen (non-perishables) so that you don't have to spend your vacation dollars on oil and seasonings! Our townhome is located within walking distance to the beach, shops, and walking trails...golf is only a minutes drive away! We LOVE it here...and are confident you will too.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had an awesome THIRD stay at your condo-so comfortable-you make it easy to enjoy the beach and to cook meals. We loved Hapuna Beach as always, stargazing on Mauna Kea + fluming. Thank you!

Lots of TLC and "extras" at this beautiful Hawaii condo! Furnished with your comfort in mind. The furnishings are classy, the beds are to-die-for, the kitchen perfectly stocked, the view divine and the total experience an unforgettable one. The owners of this unit have not left anything out in planning for your perfect vacation and, believe me, you'll be back! (Take a trip to the botanical gardens - a "must-see")

Wonderful vacation rental for the family!

  • 5 of 5

This is our third stay at the Mauna Lani Fairways and this was a wonderful townhome to call home for 2 weeks! It was very comfortable and well-stocked with everything you could possibly need. Our 2 children loved how close we were to the pool and I could make dinner while they swam with Dad and then wave everyone over once it was ready. The design of the townhome lets you take advantage of the cross breezes and we rarely used the air conditioning instead letting the lovely tropical breezes flow in, helped along by the many ceiling fans. The advantage of having the screened windows open at night was being woken up at first light by the birds! A well-stocked kitchen saw French toast or pancakes made in the morning before heading out early to Hapuna or Waialea Beach (5-7 minutes away) with boogie boards, beach chairs and sand toys loaded into the car - all provided with this great unit. For dinner we would venture to Hawi (30-35 minutes north) to the Sushi Rock Restaurant - I don't think we will ever be able to eat sushi anywhere else again, it is that good! Thank you Laura and family for sharing your beautiful vacation home! We are already planning for our return trip next year.

Fantastic home!

  • 5 of 5

Perfect location with the pool right in our backyard. The owners clearly work hard to make sure you have everything you could need, from all kinds of beach equipment to basic kitchen essentials. We also loved having access to the Beach Club for easy parking and lounge chairs. Loved our stay and would definitely return here again next time! Thanks for sharing your beautiful home with us.

Fabulous vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was our second stay in this lovely poolside townhome. It is centrally located on the Big Island on the sunniest coast. The property is very comfortable, well maintained, and stocked with everything to make your stay super enjoyable. There are bikes, beach and snorkel gear, pool toys, and our grandson loved the PS3 player when not in the pool. The kitchen is stocked with lots of extras that you hate to buy for just a week , like ketchup, soy sauce, spices, etc. I highly recommend this property for a relaxing stay near the beach!

Owner's Response: Hi Grace, I'm so glad you both enjoyed our property and found it supplied with all that you needed! I feel bad that you had to deal with all the bicycle tire issues (flats). We have never had such a problem before. Since your visit, we have purchased many tube replacements for each bike and have made them available on the equipment rack-just in case those darn kiawi thorns are a problem. Much Aloha, Laura
