About Bob & Norma Peters

After retiring, we traveled the lower 48 states, Canada and Mexico in our Motor Home. While we enjoyed our travels, we kept returning to the Big Island.

Bob & Norma Peters purchased this townhome in 2011

Why Bob & Norma Peters chose Puako

Over the years we have stayed in all the islands, but we liked the Kona area of the Big Island the best. When we decided to purchase a second home, we rented several different units in the Fairways at Mauna Lani and came to love the complex and the amenities offered by the

Mauna Lani Resort. We have been very happy with our decision. Hope you can join us.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you for the lovely accommodations at the Sunrise Villa at the Fairways , Mauna Lani. We absolutely enjoyed our stay. The home was

perfect, clean comfortable bed and just the right amount of peace and

quiet, as well as adventures at the beach. Loved having morning coffee

and afternoon and evening naps on the upstairs balcony.

Only had to use the air twice for a short time when the winds

stopped blowing and the humidity went to 98 percent. Loved the fact

that we could keep cool by just opening the windows and patio doors.

Mahalo for a lovely place to stay on the big island.

  • 5 of 5

We just spent a wonderful month at this beautiful Mauna Lani condo. This is our seventh trip to Hawaii and this is the VRBO condo we’ve enjoyed the most. The villa is spacious, airy and has everything you need for a great holiday from beach gear to a well-stocked kitchen with lots of tools and equipment. Even the knives were sharp! We loved the private setting and the two lanais shaded by trees. The location is close to gorgeous beaches and the best hotels. Every morning, we walked a different route, along the beach or through the ponds and gardens. Thank you Bob and Norma for sharing your place in paradise. We'll be back!

Excellent visit

  • 4 of 5

We stayed for a week and had a great time. The condo and everything in it was just as described - and as we had hoped. We had a couple of minor glitches with things but the owners responded immediately, making everything work smoothly. The location and setting are beautiful; the swimming pool is a short walk away; the owner's beach is a very quick drive. We spent most of our time at the beach which has plenty of chairs and a good and adjacent bar and grill. The beach also has excellent snorkeling. We definitely recommend this condo; we would stay there again.

This condo needs some work!

  • 3 of 5

Stayed at this condo for the first week of 2017 — 4 adults and an infant. The unit was okay, but definitely needs some work. The condo needs a deep cleaning—it looks like it's being superficially cleaned between renters. All 3 bathroom toilets had a dark ring inside (ick!) when we checked in, baseboards were filthy, and the floors were only clean in the center, but not in corners, etc. The dishwasher was terrible, spray arms all plugged up with food. We had to re-wash half the dishes. And we had a small water leak occur under a bathroom sink, and this was addressed right away by the owners. One huge issue is the BBQ propane leak. When you use the BBQ, the connection between the tank and the hose leaks propane. So the owner posted a sign dated more than a year prior, stating "be sure to turn off the tank when not using the BBQ". This is insane, it's an explosion waiting to happen. I can't believe anyone would ignore this problem.

Both bathroom shower heads were old, clogged, and operated poorly. The master BR is very spacious, but the mattresses in both BR's were too soft. The wifi is not protected with a password...not good.

Good fridge, range, microwave and oven. And the laundry facilities were good. The curtain to the patio was partly off its rail, needs to be fixed. Ditto for one of the dining chairs which kept popping out one of its support pieces. The condo is well supplied with pots, pans, dishes, bowls, tupperware, glasses, etc. I wouldn't recommend using any of the spices on the kitchen spice rack—the jar labelled "Dill" contained dead bugs and something that felt like black sand!

The pool and beach club were nice, as was the ability to call USA & Canada for free. We saw some boogie boards in the garage, but didn't use them. The condo is close to a grocery/liquor store, shopping, and restaurants. And it's only a few minutes drive to a couple of very nice beaches.

Not such a bad place, but the condo really needs a good cleaning, some fixups, and definitely needs that propane leak to be fixed. If all that is done, it's a 4-star place, but with the things we encountered, I'm stretching it a bit to give 3 stars.

Owner's Response: We very disappointed to hear the complaints from Rod's family. We would like to address the propane leak. We have always asked our renters to turn off the propane tank after use, not because of a leak but because of safely concerns. We have never seen or heard of a leak and we had left the property 2 weeks before they arrived. Also we just had our carpets professionally cleaned. Most of our renters have been very happy with our condo and we have a very high rating & many repeats. We are very sorry that the family was not satisfied. We had addressed any concerns that they had communicated to us while they were there, but we did not hear about a propane leak.

Delightful Mauna Lani Accommodations

  • 5 of 5

We recently stayed 9 nights in the Sunrise Villa. We had an absolutely fabulous time and enjoyed the accommodations immensely! Beautiful, serene and conveniently located. The condo furnishings are very comfortable both inside and out. We made some great meals in the well-equipped kitchen and really loved barbequing on the Lanai! We walked to the Fairmont Orchid and The Shops. Golfed both the North and South courses which were awesome and even saw some whales from the course! The BEST Mai Tai can be had at Tommy Bahamas - check out their Happy Hour every afternoon 4-6 p.m.! We look forward to our next stay in this condo! Bob and Norma were great and we would not hesitate to recommend their condo to our family and friends.

Wonderful Stay In Mauna Lani!!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in this unit for 5 nights. The location is in close proximity to some of the most beautiful beaches on the west side of the Big Island. You might, however, need a car or bike, as most of the beaches are a distance of 1 mile or slightly more. The Fairmont was definitely walking distance, and had great food and drinks, but the beaches were not accessible (except for the small cove) due to high surf. We found the private, owner's beach to be spectacular and we experienced some of the best snorkeling at this beach. It was almost deserted before 10 am, when the waters were ideal for snorkeling. The beach club had great food and great service and we spent most of our days there. The unit is clean and pictures of the unit are accurate. The kitchen was more than adequate and a bonus given that a grocery store was about 1/2 mile away. The pool and spa were close to the unit and never terribly busy. The owners, Bob and Norma, are very easy to work with. We had no problems getting in touch with them and they returned our deposit immediately. I would most definitely recommend this unit to a friend and plan on returning here again.
