About Mark Sawrey

Purchased this home on our third visit to the Big Island of Hawaii! We have made Mauna Lani our home and truly enjoy the Kohala Coast and world famous Mauna Lani Resort!

Mark Sawrey purchased this townhome in 2007

Why Mark Sawrey chose Puako

Great location in Mauna Lani close to shopping, Petroglyphs, Fairmont Orchid Hotel, walking distance to the beach, what is not to like about the Fairways at Mauna Lani.

What makes this townhome unique

Easy access from the Kailua-Kona Airport, in a 5-star resort, with fabulous beaches in the dryer Kohala coast. Close to shopping and fine dining. Included access to a Beach Club, known for excellent snorkeling and swimming. Tropical park-like area with a pool, hot tub, and covered pavilion at the center of the development. This townhome is equipped with a private barbecue and wrap-around Lanai. The upstairs master suite also has it's own private Lanai. Please enjoy and let us know if you need something not listed.

Couldn’t be better!

  • 5 of 5

Our condo was very comfortable, had lovely decor, and supplied to meet every need. We enjoyed the privacy, quiet, and convenience of walking to our families condos. Mark kept us well informed and was responsive to questions. I am going to recommend to friends.

Six Stars

  • 5 of 5

There's a reason most of these reviews say the pictures don't do the condo justice! :) Mark's condo is fabulous and beautifully decorated; the picture of the dining room gives a bit of a hint of what the rest of the condo looks like, but just a hint. There are floor to ceiling curtains in every room. Including the master bedroom which has floor to ceiling curtains on the patio and window (the curtains match the burgundy accent wall). The master bedroom has a wonderfully comfortable bed with a Tommy Bahama comforter and hundreds of pillows (okay, not hundreds, but probably ten.) The living room has a reclining chair and sofa bed along with the tall center piece shown in one of the pictures. By the way, that corner piece is taller than my husband (6 feet) and probably 5 feet in length. The kitchen is equipped with every utensil imaginable, even a rice cooker. In short, the condo is exquisitely decorated (probably professionally) and absolutely FABULOUS. (Forgot to mention, fully stocked with paper towels, tp, hand soap, dish soap and laundry soap. We were here two weeks and didn't buy any of those. The pantries are completely stocked.) And, Mauna Lani? again, FABULOUS. There's a foot path through the patio hedge which leads you to the pool - you're there in a matter of seconds. We were in the pool every day and usually had the pool to ourselves. The beach provides the best snorkeling on the island and there's a black sand beach exactly six minutes from the condo which you have to see to appreciate - it's breathtakingly beautiful. My favorite town was Waimea just to the north and east about 10 miles from the condo. They have a farmer's market on Saturday and Wednesday and several interesting restaurants. Sunset horseback riding and the north valley overlooks along with Volcano National Park are not to be missed. Thank you, Mark!!!!! If I could give your condo six stars, I would!!

Beautiful Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a month in this condo unit. We have stayed in two other units at the Fairways. This Fairways condo is beautifully decorated with quality furniture and decorations. The owner is very accessible and extremely helpful. Everything is supplied and it makes your stay a pleasure. The location is perfect with easy access to beaches.

Affordable Luxury Accommodation in Paradise.

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Mark's home on the Big Island while vacationing with family from Australia. The pictures do not do this place justice! When we arrived we were amazed at how spacious and well cared for the property is. The pantry was well stocked with spices and herbs for cooking and Mark had left us some delicious treats in the refrigerator, which the kids loved! The beds were very comfortable and all the furnishings made us feel very at home. The location is perfect! Within walking distance to the beach, Orchid Fairmont and a short drive to one of the best beaches for snorkeling and very safe for kids. We loved having access to the beach club which provided great lounge chairs and shade, along with nice food options. This was the first time our kids really enjoyed and felt comfortable snorkeling in the ocean. The pool and hot tub at the Fairways was wonderful with a large hot tub, kids pool and large swimming pool. Mark was a wonderful host, very attentive, quick to reply to emails and texts and open to offer local suggestions for places to see & eat. Overall I would highly recommend this property and host to future guests and hope to return here one day. Mahalo Mark!
