About the property

Townhome includes 3 Bedrooms (+ Loft) and 3 Baths (Sleeps 8)

This exquisite 3-bedroom, 3-full bath villa is located on the 10th hole of the prestigious Mauna Lani South course. While relaxing on the main lanai or the master bedroom lanai you will be amazed by the 180-degree view of the golf course with the ocean in the distance. Not too mention the views of the esteemed homes in 49 Black Sands Beach. Rumor has it many celebrities reside right across the fairway from this villa.

As you move to the front of the house the views of the volcano and pool are breathtaking.

You will want to experience this villa with over 2300 square feet of living space. The great room features an entertainment area with a large flat screen TV and a cocktail/game area to enjoy a hand of cards or an afternoon of reading and watching the golfers.

The master suite is a retreat unto itself, decorated in nothing else but the island favorite, Tommy Bahama. The suite features a huge walk-in closet, recently remodeled bathroom with walk in shower and dual shower heads, enclosed toilet and two sinks.

The beach-themed upstairs bedroom features two twin beds and attached guest bathroom. For those vacationers looking to surf both the Hawaiian waves and the internet, the upstairs study / loft is the perfect spot to connect to the free WiFi Internet access. The study / loft also includes a day bed and trundle for additional sleeping.

The downstairs bedroom is perfect as a second master suite, featuring a queen bed and full bathroom and a flat screen TV.

The gourmet kitchen will meet the needs of even the most demanding gourmet chef. The outdoor kitchen makes an evening BBQ on the lanai while watching the sun set a reality. If choosing to dine inside, a beautifully appointed dining room seats 6 with additional seating for 4 in hand carved chairs at the kitchen bar.

The villa comes with the much sought after private Beach Club access card (where you will discover some of the best snorkeling on the island), discounted resort golf rates, access to the Mauna Lani Fitness and Racquet club. We also include premium boogie boards, snorkles, masks, and much more!

About The Owner

From the day we were married and honeymooned in Hawaii, my husband and I had a dream to own a piece of paradise. In the Spring of 2007, we were finally able to realize that dream with the purchase of the villa in Mauna Lani.

Picture taken at the Kona Village Luau.

The Owner purchased this townhome in 2007

Why The Owner chose Puako

After vacationing to the Big Island for over twenty years we knew this was the Island for us. You get a little bit of everything: golf, snorkeling, white sand beaches, black sand beaches, green sand beaches, active volcano, rain forest, snow, whales, dolphins and on and on!

Once we knew the Big Island was the Island for us we then narrowed in on Waikoloa and Mauna Lani. Ultimately we chose Mauna Lani because it is very peaceful, the beaches are some of the best in the world, the resort amenities are ranked in the top 5 annually by many travel publications and we loved what the Golf Villas had to offer with the gorgeous resort style pool, large townhome style living, the views from our lanai and the upscale finishings. Come see for yourself the gem we have discovered!

What makes this townhome unique

We are the original owners of this property and worked with the builder each step of the way throughout the building project. We hand selected many of the finishings and after we purchased the home we brought in one of the island's top interior decorators to custom paint and assist in selecting the furnishings.

Many of the furnishings were custom made including most of the wood pieces which were designed specifically for our villa and custom made in Bali. There is a combination of teak and mahogany with hand carved palm leaves and honu turtle.

You will find this property is a home and not a 'rental unit.' We reside in the villa ourselves between 4-6 months each year. The fact that we spend so much time 'on island' will be noticed as soon as you step through the door. We have many original art pieces, a kitchen stocked with everything a chef needs to prepare a gourmet meal, linens that are only used by guests of the villa, and we are constantly upgrading and maintaining the property.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank YOU for sharing your terrific villa with us -- we really enjoyed it, and the frequent use by owners showed in the care taken in furnishing & supplying the villa as compared to strictly rental units. Thank you, too, for the speedy return of my security deposit!

The condo was very comfortable, and conveniently located for lots of activities.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay at your condo. With a party of 8, we filled all the beds, but it was still comfortable and didn't seem at all crowded. We used the local beach, but also went up to the nearby Hapuna Beach State Park. You've got a great place.

Beautiful Villa. Great Location.

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this wonderful villa. We stayed for a month and enjoyed everything about it. The location is excellent, close to the pool and centrally located to the Mauna Lani, Waikoloa, Mauna Kea area of the Kohala Coast. The villa floor plan was perfect for our family. We had our son and his family with us for a week (total of 6), two weeks with just the two of us and the last week with our daughter and her family (total of 6). The villa was perfect and the kitchen was well stocked. The Mauna Lani Beach Club was perfect to relax on the beach, snorkel or paddle board. Very calm and great for young children. We highly recommend this villa.

Beautiful, impeccable, comfortable, great location

  • 5 of 5

This condo was exactly what we needed for our family. With a full kitchen, a great washer/dryer, all the beach toys a child could want/desire, beach towels/chairs, we could really enjoy ourselves during our week stay on the Big Island. There were multiple comfortable spots to hang out, enjoy ourselves, and be very relaxed. Karen was very responsive. I would not hesitant to come here again.

Our stay at the Villa was absolutely perfect. This vacation home will wow you in all levels. It's very spacious and extremely clean. The beautiful decoration gives a homey e energy and will make you feel at home as soon as you walk in. It's conveniently located right across front of the pool area, which is gorgeous. This was a plus, since we were traveling with kids. The view from the back porch (which you have access from the family and dining room downstairs and master bedroom upstairs) will take your breath away, in a combination of mountains, golf course, and lava field (you literally will have a lava field in the backyard). As homeschooling parents, that alone gave us an entire week of material for teaching.

The private beach is gorgeous. Due to having small children, we never walked to it, so I am not sure how convenient is the walking, but it's 3 minutes by car. A great place for enjoying the beautiful sand beach, snorkling, standup paddling, and a gorgeous sunset.

It is also conveniently located next to a small outside shopping mall that offers great restaurants, shops, and almost nighly activities that gave us the fun Hawaiian experience. It is also located only 10 minutes from Hapuna Beach, where you experience the most gorgeous sunset.

Karen, the owner of the Villa, is extremely courteous as well. She has prepared a nice folder to help you navigate the island, choose activities, and just with nice fyi material. That was definitely a plus.

Overall, we have rented vacation homes throughout the world and we are very particular on our choices, especially when it comes to cleanness and comfort. This place is by far on the top of our list. If you are looking for a place to stay that will give you an amazing experience, this is the place.

Perfect Vacation Rental

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at the villa for 8 nights and had a wonderful time. Plenty of space for 7. The villa was very clean and well stocked. Furniture and appliances were like new. The lanai was perfect for barbecuing and relaxing. The balcony off the large master bedroom was great for watching the sunset or enjoying a cup of coffee in the morning. The grounds of the golf villas are immaculate. The large pool, hot tub and fitness room are right across the street. We spent several days at the Mauna Lani Beach Club - great for snorkeling, swimming and relaxing. There's also a number of picturesque beaches nearby. Karen was very helpful, responsive and proactive with her communications. This rental exceeded my expectations - I highly recommend it.
