About Timothy (Timo) Driedger

After owning in Keauhou for 20+ years, we fell in love with Mauna Lani when Grand Father assisted bringing Skins Game to Big Island and the weather is the most consistent in the USA, with has less rain than even Las Vegas or Phoenix. We love sunshine and finding a place with the civility we remember growing up, the Big Island definitely delivers. Great Golf, Great Weather, Great Food, Great Beaches, and a perfect retreat!

Timothy (Timo) Driedger purchased this house in 2012

Guestbook comments from the owner

I want to say thank you for providing such a lovely vacation getaway.Our family and friends loved the beautifully decorated island style home. We appreciated the onsuite baths and

and the spacious guest rooms.

The upstairs lanai was wonderful for conversation, stargazing and the tropical breezes! We enjoyed every delicious meal in the upstairs dining room as well.The designated cooks made trips to the herb garden to prepare.

As for the water,the pool was used sun up to sundown.

We loved the beach access as well. Our crew took full advantage of the

bikes and the snorkel gear.

What a great vacation and great accommodations.

Awesome home

  • 5 of 5

The house is absolutely perfect for a family reunion or for 4 couples. Ideally located to golf courses, tennis courts, restaurants and the beach! Great outdoor patio provides the perfect setting after a day at the beach or after a golf game. Watch the sun go down while you sip a cool one!

Beautiful property

  • 5 of 5

A beautiful home with great views and inside/outside living space. Decorated with wonderful taste and refinement. Only complaint was the bedding could be upgraded, pillows too hard, firm bed in small bedroom could use a pillow top. But those are minor complaints. Over all this was a great vacation rental for our family.

Amazing Big Island oasis!

  • 5 of 5

Our family (my husband, parents and 3 teen kids) thoroughly enjoyed our stay in Timo's Mauna Lani resort home. There was more than enough space for everyone although we mostly lived on the amazing second level porch off the dining room/kitchen. The views were spectacular, both sunrise and sunset. We loved the easy drives to all north Kohala beaches, our favorite being Hapuna beach for the great boogie boarding waves. The house is well stocked with everything you need for the beach (boogie boards, snorkeling gear, chairs, umbrellas, towels). Accessibility to groceries and restaurants is great. We were thankful for the pool to cool off in late afternoons. We were also thankful for the AC in the bedrooms, although it was generally comfortable in the whole house throughout our mid-July stay. If we could suggest any improvements it would be to the bedding, both sheets and comforters, and a small beverage cooler to take to the beach.

Overall a great place to stay, especially at the reasonable price for the community. We loved experiencing the Big Island from this wonderful home base and Timo was very responsive to our questions before and during our trip!

Wonderful Property

  • 5 of 5

The house has 4 bedrooms with private bathrooms. Absolutely perfect for our group of 4 adult couples. The upstairs lanai is large and typically has a nice cool breeze blowing through. While enjoying a cocktail on the lanai you can watch the golfers on the driving range and gaze at the ocean. It is also a great place to catch the Hawaii sunsets. The pool is large and clean. I recommend this property without hesitation. Thanks Timo for the wonderful house and the round of golf at Mauna Lani south!

Timo's house is beautiful and our multi-generational family of 7 had a perfect Hawaii vacation.

  • 5 of 5

Great location for family activities; just minutes from the Mauna Lani Beach, the Fairmount Beach and a great public beach. Timo responded with a maintenance person within a couple of hours to a few very minor repairs; you couldn't ask for more. Thank you Timo for a wonderful family vacation.

Champion Ridge at Mauna Lani is a masterstroke of planning. It is comprised of thirty-three fabulous home sites, each lavishing a 360-degree panorama of Big Island mountains and dramatic golf views.

This exclusive, 23.5-acre community offers a lifestyle of unlimited enjoyment amid a perennial golfer’s paradise.

Mauna Lani Resort is a luxury golf resort with two championship golf courses, Mauna Lani North and South. Both golf courses offer a challenging experience to novice and professional golf enthusiasts alike. Mauna Lani has received Golf Magazine's Gold Medal Award every year since 1988 and was host to the Senior Skins Golf Game for 11 years. The Big Island golf courses are masterpieces of design, each strikingly different, yet equally challenging. Each course is a world apart geographically, and in playing experience.

The Mauna Lani Spa is a uniquely Hawaiian day spa retreat ranked one of the 'World's Best Spas' by Travel & Leisure magazine. The spa resort is a reflection of the Island of Hawaii's splendid range of geographic wonders. From the snowy peaks of Mauna Kea to the flowing lava of Kilauea the spa's architecture, treatments and services draw from the colorful history and mythology of the land.

The luxury spa resembles a Hawaiian village with thatched hale for treatments, two natural lava saunas, a meditation pavilion and a watsu pool. Treatments include traditional Hawaiian therapies, baths body treatments and massage therapy.

The Mauna Lani Salon is located adjacent to the Mauna Lani Spa. Relax with a luxury Spa treatment then visit the Salon for a pedicure, manicure or the latest hairstyle.

Activities abound on the Island of Hawaii. A trip to an active volcano, an excursion to the largest telescopes in the world, or a hike into a tropical rainforest are just a few of the exciting adventures available. Guests of Mauna Lani will also find a myriad of activities at the resort from world class golf, a Hawaiian inspired spa, water sports or a tranquil afternoon in a private cabana at the Beach Club.
