Why spend your island adventure captive to the crowded and noisy resort atmosphere!

If you are looking for a private, spacious, and relaxing atmosphere, you have found paradise with this unit. The Fairways at Mauna Lani is a modern (2006), private-gated and meticulously maintained, luxury townhouse development nestled in the prestigious Mauna Lani Resort area. This townhome community consists of 21 two-story villas situated on over twenty acres along the Francis Brown North and South Golf Courses in Mauna Lani. Each villa contains six individual privately owned townhomes built in a traditional Hawaiian architecture. Mauna Lani is just a short twenty minute drive from Kona International Airport.

Enjoy your privacy in this spacious unit with no neighbors above or below you. This townhome is located in the spacious lush garden and pool area. Leave the back lanai and walk just a short distance across the garden area to the beautiful lagoon inspired swimming pool with two waterfalls and hot tub as well as the private fitness center, Weber barbecues, and Clubhouse with party deck, kitchen and lounge. Though close in proximity to the townhome, you will still be far enough away to not be disturbed if pool play gets too loud or if you have forgotten something back in the room and need to return.

Unwind on your choice of two covered lanais. One private lanai right off the master bedroom suite where you can enjoy the morning sun and a cup of Kona coffee and the other off the dining/living area that offers you a Viking stainless-steel BBQ grill and wet bar and an expansive view of the immaculate lush green grounds.

The unit has been thoughtfully furnished in a tasteful Island theme with high end furnishings. It has 1,640 square feet of living space not counting the garage and two lanai areas. Enjoy the KEYLESS front door entry feature. No need to worry about house keys here!

Due to the nature of how the condo is laid out from a safety standpoint and the way in which this unit is furnished, we feel that it is best suited for children age 6 and older.

The fully furnished gourmet kitchen, with cherry cabinets, granite counters and GE stainless steel appliances, has everything you will need to create a wonderful meal. The dining area seats six around a beautiful marble table with upholstered chairs, plus there is additional seating at the bar. The living room has a 42” flat screen TV and DVD player.

The master bedroom has a king-size bed, ceiling fan, flat screen TV, and large private master bath with Jacuzzi tub, separate roomy walk-in shower, double sinks with granite counter tops, separate toilet room, and plenty of walk-in closet space. Use the master bedroom office retreat to stay connected with the office or with friends and family with our complimentary high speed wireless internet.

The second bedroom is furnished with a queen-size bed, ceiling fan, full private in-suite bath with combination tub/shower, single sink with granite countertop. There is also a flat panel LCD TV for relaxing in bed.

Need sleeping space for more than four? Additional sleeping arrangements for up to one or two adults is provided with the use of our queen-sized pillow-top 'Aero Bed'. It even comes with it's own air compressor for easy assembly.

Other amenities include a laundry area with a full size washer, dryer, and granite countertop with ironing board. There is also a half bath conveniently located on the main floor.

No need to pay all those airline excess baggage fees. The garage area holds all the gear necessary for beach or pool activities such as towels, beach chairs, a lightweight beach cooler, umbrella, beach toys, pool toys, mats, boogie boards, and snorkel gear.

Looking for a beach day close to the complex? With only a five minute drive from the complex, or a fifteen minute bike along the beach, AT NO EXTRA CHARGE, Fairways owners and their guests have access to The Mauna Lani Beach Club. This private club is located between the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel and the private residence developments on a protected bay with white sand and coconut palms. Relax for an afternoon of some of the best snorkeling on the island (all ocean gear can be rented seaside or for snorkeling you are welcome to use the gear we have provided for our guests). The Beach Club, with private parking very close to the beach, provides covered cabanas, lounge chairs, two showers beachside, bathroom facilities and a bar and restaurant right on the beach. Walk on up to the bar and order a Mai Tai or a smoothie to sip on while you sun at the beach or bring your own cooler filled with your own beverages and food. Also in this area you can enjoy the self-guided walking tour, featuring archaeological sites with petro glyphs, historic park land, and the Kalahuipuaa Fishponds.

Although the Beach Club is just a 5 minute drive from the townhouse, another five to ten minute drive will take you to Hapuna Beach, one of Kona's well known beaches which has the best bodysurfing and boogie-boarding on the island. If you prefer not to use the complementary Fairways private gym and pool, you can use the facilities at the Mauna Lani Sport and Fitness Club for a small additional fee. Tennis is also available at the Sport and Fitness Club as well as Pilates. A seven minute walk under a flowering tree canopy brings you to the doorways of the luxurious Fairmont Orchid Resort with amazing ocean front views, tropical grounds and be also right on the beach.

As a guest of Fairways you will also be eligible for golf discounts at the Francis Brown North and South Golf Courses in Mauna Lani.

About Nancy

After growing up in North Dakota and living in Alaska for the past twenty-five years, we had dreamed about making a home where snow shovels are not required. Hobbies and passions including golf, fishing, snorkeling and diving made the big island of Hawaii a natural fit.

Nancy purchased this townhome in 2010

Why Nancy chose Puako

Over the years we were able to make numerous trips to Oahu, Kauai and Maui, but never found consistently good weather like we found on the Big Island. When we discovered Mauna Lani with it's private beach club, fabulous golf courses and proximity to the best beaches on the island, we knew we were home. We especially enjoy evening snorkel excursions in the beach club's protected waters when the fish and turtles are most active, followed by sunset with your favorite island cocktail

What makes this townhome unique

The Fairways complex contains the most extensive pool complex in Mauna Lani. You can also work out in the fitness facility which overlooks the pool area. Both lanais in our unit enjoy fabulous morning sun yet are shaded during the heat of the afternoon. The expansive grounds right off the outdoor kitchen provide a great location for the kids to chase geckos, toss a Frisbee or simply burn the last burst of energy before collapsing into bed.

Great location and comfortable fully equipped!

  • 4 of 5

Owners thought of everything to help make our stay relaxing and worry-free. Great location and beautiful setting. Having access to the Beach Club and 2 beautiful little beaches made our stay even more enjoyable. Near other great beaches and terrific snorkeling. Owners also completely responsive when small glitch with BBQ occurred. Quick problem-solving! Only suggestion is about furniture...a little chunky to move around. Thanks for sharing your home with us. Maholo and aloha.

Lovely Big Island location

  • 5 of 5

Our family stayed at the Fairways property in late July, after several sweltering days on Oahu. What a wonderful base for exploring the Big Island! Very well-furnished, especially the kitchen--had fun using it and the Viking grill on the lanai! A nice pool is a short walk away, and the Mauna Lani beach is a short drive--good beach for swimmers, kids, and some very decent snorkeling on the south side of that beach when conditions were good. The Fairways is a quiet, well-kept development.

The Big Island is BIG, but we found that drive times to Hilo, volcanoes, the coffee country, and North Kohala were all reasonable from this location. FWIW, the KTA market in Waikoloa Village has a better selection and better prices than the Mauna Lani Foodland, and a gas station. Plenty of good to excellent restaurants nearby. Our favorite beach for both swimming and snorkeling was at Hapuna State Park, a short drive north--beautiful sand, great reef fish on both the north and south edges! Definitely in the top tier of VRBO places we've stayed at.

Absolutlely Wonderful!!!!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I had a wonderful time. The condo was clean, well kept, and had all the comforts of home. We spent most days at the beach club. Great snorkeling with calm waters for swimming. The owner Nancy is very responsive and answered all of my questions prior to us arriving. We were all very sad we had to leave. Looking forward to returning soon.

Amazing place to say and enjoy your vacation.

  • 5 of 5

This was an amazing vacation. We have been a part of VRBO and TripAdvisor community for a while. We always listen to the others to find out about the best places to visit and also share our experience. We have visited the Big Island again after 25 years and yes, we found an incredible place to stay.

First of all the instructions we got from Nancy were very detailed and the place was very easy to find. This is a beautifully, secluded part of the island, very close to the beach, restaurants and every part of the island.

We were stunned to see this beautiful condo. It covers everything you would like to have in your own house. Very nice 2 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms. Great kitchen and a wonderful outdoor space. Every day in the morning we had our breakfast right outside. There is a Viking grill that we have used 3 times.

Kitchen is wonderful, has every spices you need. We have tried to contribute to the pantry a bit. You don’t need to worry about anything.

Plenty of towels, beach chairs, coolers that we have used many times. It is very nice for Nancy and Dave to provide the access card for the beach club. They ask you to signs in to use their chairs and we have never had any problems to find the space. We had lunch at the club, very nice and convenient.

This is an incredible island by itself but with this accommodation is even more beautiful. Tranquility of the surrounding, space, and convenience makes this condo exceptional.

We would highly recommend this place to anybody visiting The Big Island. Hope to return soon.

Thank you Nancy and Dave

Damian, Barbara and Joanne
