About Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk
We live in Vancouver, British Columbia and are avid travellers. Nina is from northern Manitoba while Richard is from Chicago. Richard’s family moved to Edmonton, Alberta in the 70’s and we met in Kenora, Ontario. We eventually made our way to the lower mainland of British Columbia in 1999. Richard has a background in the banking, auditing and regulatory industries while Nina is a Human Resources Consultant. In our spare time we enjoy keeping fit with yoga, group cycling and gym work-outs. We also enjoy reading and spending relaxing days on our patio or at the beach and ending the day with a happy hour. Having grown up in northern climates we spend all our vacation time traveling to sun destinations to escape the cold and rain (and sometimes snow). We discovered the Hawaiian islands during a cruise in 2005 and in 2008 when we looked to invest in a vacation home Hawaii was the logical choice for us. It was a dream come true when we purchased our vacation home at the Mauna Lani Resort. With each visit we feel more and more a part of the 'aloha' spirit and community.

Why Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk chose Kulalani
We chose the Mauna Lani Resort because of the fabulous beaches and the abundance of sunshine on the South Kohala coast (an attractive feature for those who live in a coastal rain forest!). The private beach club, a fabulous fitness centre and spa, and a local supermarket are all within a friendly and welcoming community. Although we are not avid golfers, our guests could not be more impressed with the two championship golf courses within the resort. When we toured the Kulalani resort we fell in love with Kulalani right away because it felt immediately like home. Our villa is spacious and well laid out. The private amenities (2 pools, 2 hot tubs and a fitness centre) at Kulalani are among the best that Mauna Lani has to offer! We have a superb track record as attentive and responsive hosts and in providing a quality well-stocked home. Just read our many, many five star reviews. We take great pride in our vacation home and it shows. Always fresh and always immaculate; our poolside location can’t be beat. It is our hope at Kulalani 2006 that you will escape to a relaxing but fun filled vacation. Some say life is good … at Kulalani 2006 we think life is pretty great. We are delighted to be your hosts during your stay on the Big Island of Hawaii.

Lovely vacation home!
We had a beautiful stay, in the clean, well-equipped and comfortable Mauna Lani vacation home owned by Richard and Nina. They were so helpful and informative which just added to the ease and pleasure of vacationing on the Kohala Coast of the Big Island. We really enjoyed the pools, Mauna Lani Beach Club (pass included), and nearby restaurants, and grocery market. A special treat was enjoying our sunrise coffee on their upper lanai...ahhhhh paradise! Mahalo!
Amazing Home Away from Home
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to Kulalani. The owners were very helpful and provided an excellent package in advance. Our stay definitely exceeded our expectations and our expectations were set high based on the advance materials we received. Definitely interested in a return visit at some time.
Perfect All the Way Around
My family of four just finished up a week here and it was fantastic! The Villa is immaculate and has everything you need. Kitchen is well-stocked, beds are super-comfortable, and the garage is full of beach gear- boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkeling gear etc.
Plus it is all about location. We were steps from both pools and the exercise area. However, they were just far enough away that the Villa was always quiet and peaceful.
Most importantly for us, the Villa was only a 10-minute drive from Hapuna Beach State Park, where we spent countless hours playing in the small waves. Also, the Villa is only a 2-minute drive or a 15- minute pleasant stroll to Petroglyph Park, which is the perfect spot. to watch the sunset over the water.
Nina and Richard were wonderful long-distance hosts, always quickly available by email or cell, and keeping in touch to help us with check in and check out.
If you are staying on The Big Island, do yourselves a favor and stay at Morning Glory. You will not be disappointed!
Very clean and great complex.
A truly wonderful experience! Everything you could possible wish for in a tranquil, luxurious setting. Would highly recommend.
Memorable stay with amazing beach club access
We had a great time at the villa with our 2.5yr old! What a great location nearby to all the vacation amenities. Traveling with a young child is not easy (as many parents know full well!), so we were looking for a place as close to home. The villa is fully equipped and truly feels like a home with high quality furnishings. We have stayed in many vacation properties and this one truly stood out with all the comforts of home.
We were also looking for quick beach access with some amenities so we could focus playtime instead of logistics - and the Beach club delivered! The Beach club has your cabanas, chairs, shade etc and close by parking that make your trip to the beach with the kid that much more pleasurable. The restaurant at the Beach club is really good - do not miss out on that. The beach itself is nicely sheltered so there weren't any big waves, and plenty of easy snorkeling spots.
The pool at the Kulalani complex is also great. It has a massive 1ft deep section that is perfect for toddlers and younger kids. We loved the grounds - very well kept and peaceful.
The villa itself had an awesome view of Mauna Kea from the master bedroom balcony that we enjoyed in the mornings and watching the sun rise.
The Mauna Lani area in general is great with grocery stores and many restaurant options - a great vacation destination!
