Overview

About the property

Villa, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Kulalani is a beautifully landscaped, peaceful, private, gated neighborhood situated within the Mauna Lani Resort. It is a 25 minute drive north from Kona International Airport, a 10 minute walk to the closest beach, and a 10 minute walk to the closest grocery store.

Our 1,600 sq. ft. home is perfect for 2 to 4 adults who are seeking total relaxation. It is also suitable for a family of four. ( There is a pack n play available upon request.) The master bedroom (California King) is on the second floor along with a generous en-suite and private lanai overlooking the 5th green of the Mauna Lani North Golf Course and the Kohala mountains. This is the perfect place to enjoy your morning cup of Kona coffee. The second bedroom (Queen Size) is on the first floor with an adjacent full bathroom. This bedroom has an additional flat screen TV.

Our townhouse is professionally decorated and maintained to the highest standards. The 20-foot ceiling in the living room opens to the kitchen and dining area. The covered, wrap-around lanai overlooks the 5th green of the Mauna Lani North Golf Course. We never tire of the unobstructed mountain view and total privacy. There is a full out-door kitchen on the lanai with a Viking BBQ and wet bar.

It’s important to us that our guests enjoy a wonderful vacation experience during their stay in Hawaii. In order to ensure this, all the necessary amenities are provided. We also entrust our Property Manager, John, to take care of our guests. If you have any questions about the Big Island – he’s your guy. John is only a call away. His response time is so fast he has had guests ask if he lives in the neighborhood!

The Recreation Center in Kulalani is one of the best on the Big Island. There you will find 2.5 acres of beautiful gardens surrounding a lagoon pool, Keiki pool, a half-lap adult pool, two Jacuzzis, a fully-equipped fitness center and a gathering pavilion with outdoor kitchen. The gardens in this area are so beautiful that our daughter held her wedding reception in the Gathering Pavilion in 2013. Our home is located directly across from the entrance to the Recreation Center. It only takes 2 minutes to get from poolside to the fridge to replenish the ice in your drink!

Access to the Owner’s Beach Club is available for your use. This private, gated beach has a safe swimming cove, lifeguards, restaurant, and some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island. There are lounge chairs provided so you only need to pack towels and the cooler when you visit.

The Mauni Lani Bay Hotel and the Fairmont Orchid Hotel are located within the Mauni Lani Resort. The nearby 'Shops of Mauni Lani' have several restaurants, art galleries, gift shops, free entertainment, and a full grocery store with deli, bakery, meat and seafood departments. The Mauna Lani Resort is home to two Championship golf courses, the Francis H. I'i Brown North and South Courses.

About John Landers

My husband and I were born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. We have three daughters who are all attending universities. Over the past 15 years we found ourselves traveling to and from Hawaii and just could not stay away. We always dreamed about owning a place in paradise.

Now that we are approaching those 'golden years' that everyone refers to, we thought it would be a good time to make our dream come true by owning a home on the Big Island and traveling back and forth as we have always done.

John Landers purchased this villa in 2008

Why John Landers chose Kulalani

We chose to live on the Kohala Coast because of the white sandy beaches that receive less than 10 inches of rain each year. We love the Hawaiian people, culture, food, weather, and the history. We consider ourselves as residents of Hawaii even though we are not there year-round. We are offering you our home and hope that your family will enjoy the same pleasures that our family does when we are there.

What makes this villa unique

Kulalani is a place to heal the mind, spirit, body and soul.

This is our typical day in Kulalani:

We start our day with local fresh fruit and coffee on the 'garden lanai'.

Next, it's to the 'fitness center' for a quick work out or swim.

A picnic lunch is quickly assembled and we are off to one of our many 'favorite beaches'.

In the mid-afternoon (after we've had enough sand), we return to the 'lagoon pool' with a book and have another swim.

'Happy Hour' typically starts around 4:00 p.m. and gently takes us into the 'sunset' part of the day.

Now it's back to the lanai for 'catch of the day' fresh off the BBQ.

Retirement to the upstairs lanai is our next stop, where we sip our 'Special Coffees' and assume 'Star Watch' position.

Bed time usually comes early so that we can . . . . (brace yourself)

DO IT ALL AGAIN TOMORROW!!!

Guestbook comments from the manager

After our arrival on the Big Island we followed the description to this house. We stepped in and we couldn't believe that THIS should be our place to be for the following 6 days. Wow. This is such a beautiful house with all we needed and more. It fulfilled all our dreams and we felt at home from the first moment. To wake up in the upper level is amazing. We love this place. I would rate this experience with 6 of 5 stars, if possible. We would definitely love to return. Mahalo nui to the owners for sharing this place and to John for caring.

Another Great Stay in Kulalani

  • 5 of 5

The unit is very clean, well appointed and has a beautiful view of the golf course. We have stayed here several times. We like the proximity to the pools and the totally private lanai. There are two bikes for getting around the resort. John is the property manager. He lives close by and is only a phone call away. There are fabulous beaches just a 5 minute drive either north or south on the highway. Kua Bay, Mauna Kea, Beach Club to name just a few. We have already booked our next stay.

Great property! We will be back

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this unit. We frequently VRBO homes, and this ranks as one of the best yet. The home was well stocked. The location to the pool and gym was amazing, and the owner was very accommodating to our needs. We had a toddler traveling with us, and the home had all of the supplies we needed and then some. You cannot go wrong with this home!
