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.

Top notch accommodation and property!

  • 5 of 5

This was our fourth trip to Mauna Lani and this was by far the best unit we have stayed in.

We were there from January 16 to February 15th. Mark,s attention to detail at every level was amazing. It is obvious he takes great pride in his unit and it was much appreciated.The pictures do not come close to show the quality and spaciousness of the townhome. The private beach club is outstanding. It is very sheltered with excellent snorkeling. We walked to the Shops at Mauna Lani for groceries at Foodland as well as several restaurants. We spent a night at Volcano Village. We got up at 5 AM and went to the Jaggar Museum overlook into the crater. There were only a half dozen people observing. It was a great time of day to be there. It was crystal clear, the sky was bright orange, and you could hear the rocks caving in to the lava. The noise was like distant thunder - incredible! It was the highlight of our trip. I would highly recommend Mark's property. It will be our first choice when we return. Thanks Mark for a great vacation!

Nice condo, Privacy is questionable

  • 3 of 5

Very well equipped home and very clean. Walking distance to grocery store and a great path along the beach. Just a little weird that the owner knows who was at the house and when by a video cameras. We had a small family of 5 and the neighbors came in the home on the last day before we had left and the owner knew and questioned me about it. I use Vrbo a lot and this was a very uncomfortable situation. Privacy is nice when your on vacation.

Owner's Response: We do not have any cameras other than the RING door bell, which has been very helpful in protecting our guests, items, and our property. We are so sorry you did not like this valuable security device but we would not live without the RING door bell for our front door! Mahalo Mark

Nice unit in The Fairways

  • 4 of 5

We were four adults who stayed through Christmas and New Years and enjoyed beautiful weather and the whales! We have stayed in this complex before and enjoyed the layout of this unit with both bedrooms being upstairs. Nice furnishings and lots of things to use in the kitchen. The grill on the lanai is great to use. Shampoo, conditioner, and laundry detergent are all provided along with beach chairs, umbrella, coolers, and one boogie board. The beach club pass is one of the best perks about staying at the Fairways. Pool was very cold this time of year, but hot tub was always hot. Easy to get to the pool through the cutout in the landscaping. It is much more busy than the summer and was hard to get lounge chairs. Complex needs to add more. We were allowed to leave our luggage on the last day to go to the beach as our flight was early evening and that was very appreciated.

Our only issue was the ceiling fan in the second bedroom was not working. The upstairs in general was warm, but it was very stuffy in that bedroom and bathroom. The a/c is programmed so we could not turn it down anymore to make it more comfortable. We contacted the manager early in our 11 night stay. We were told that maintenance would be out to look at it on two different days and it never happened. It was very disappointing. I would be concerned about staying if that issue is not addressed.

Owner's Response: Aloha! So glad you had a good time in our home, we too felt bad about the fan being non functional in the guest bedroom, and so glad you notified us about this issue. Service Tech did come and look at this issue, a new fan was ordered, as the service folks could not repair it. The A/C is set not to go below 70 degrees, and not to run when doors are left open for long periods of time. This is all for for efficiency and reliability per the HVAC service team. We have had this A/C control system for 10 years and this is our first complaint about the A/C. We have looked at the history for the last 90 days and this unit is working admirably. If you would ever like to return we will make sure all ceiling fans are operational, and give you a free day in our home. Thank you again for staying in our Little Slice of Paradise. Mahalo

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!!
