About Wayne

Wayne is an earth scientist in the energy industry and Diana is a retired educator. We first visited the Big Island in 1976 and made a pledge to return to Hawaii every other year for vacation. Over time we began visiting even more frequently and decided it was time to buy.

Wayne purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Wayne chose Puako

We chose the Big Island because it was not as busy as Oahu or Maui and has better infrastructure than Kauai. We also realized that the Big Island has some of the best beaches in the world, if you know how to find them. The Kohala Coast offers the finest resorts along with the best weather. The trade winds that blow through the saddle between the volcanic peaks keep the air cool and clear. It is no surprise that 9 of the top 10 most expensive homes in the State of Hawaii are located nearby on the Kohala Coast!

What makes this townhome unique

We wanted to be close to the best beaches in Hawaii. Hapuna, Kauna'oa (Mauna Kea), 69 and 49 Black Sand are all just a short drive away. We also have the benefit of using the parking, cabanas and beach chairs at the Mauna Lani Beach Club Beach which offers great water sports and snorkeling. Our villa is special since the master bedroom is downstairs, there is a barbecue grill on the lanai and it has direct access from the garage.

Lovely and Convenient

  • 5 of 5

Wayne & Diana's condo was perfect for our 3-generation family stay. The condo is spacious and well outfitted, including beach gear. Beaches are all a short drive away, and the pool on the property is delightful. Larry, the on-site manager, had ready answers to all of our questions.

Owner's Response: With so many nice beaches nearby, Mauna Lani is the place to stay while visiting the Big Island. Our condo has all of the supplies you need to enjoy them including towels, chairs, umbrellas, ice chests, boogie boards and a wagon to carry all of the gear. Mahalo for the excellent review!

Very impressive, a very large smile appears on your face when you walk through the front door.

The accommodations definitely matches the expectations and beauty of Mauna Lani. The complex grounds and pool area are amazing. This is what I call "first class living".

The villa immediately impressed. It has an excellent layout and meticulously maintained.

  • 5 of 5

The villa had everything we needed. We were traveling with a one-year-old and a two-year-old, with four adults. The Villa was equipped with a pack and play and highchair’s for meals.There was plenty of room for the kids to have private spaces to sleep in. The Villa was also fully equipped with everything we needed for cooking both on the grill and in the house. Everything seemed to be in immaculate condition, very well-maintained. The beds were exceptionally comfortable, great sheets and mattresses. There was also ample beach gear to use, including very nice chairs, sand toys for the kids, a beach wagon to carry everything in, boogie boards, etc.

Geographically, the villa is located in the absolute ideal position. Everything you need is a stone’s throw away - grocery store, multiple beaches, private pool with Jacuzzi, and countless restaurants.

We had the vacation of a lifetime! Thanks, Wayne!

Owner's Response: The Fairways at Mauna Lani is a perfect place for a family vacation. It has one of the largest swimming pools in the area with an adjoining keiki (kids) pool. The Mauna Lani Beach Club is a safe beach for children that is monitored by lifeguards. There are plenty of beach toys in our recreation closet. At the end of the day there is plenty of grass out back for the young ones to run around on while dinner is being grilled on the lanai Viking barbecue. Wait until you see the wonder in the children’s’ eyes when they see the glow from the lava on top of the Kilauea volcano. Mahalo for the excellent review!

6 weeks of perfection

  • 5 of 5

This stay in the Fairways was our 5th, and the best! This condo is perfectly located, very comfortably furnished, beautifully equipped, and well managed. The owners, Wayne and Diana, are easy to work with, and their on site property manager, Larry, is always available to answer any need. Having a garage for our rental car was also a plus. We are already looking forward to our stay next summer!

Owner's Response: Having an attached garage is very convenient for unloading luggage and groceries into the villa. This is a rare luxury on the Kohala Coast. We love our guests that enjoy our home and return. Mahalo for the excellent review!

Perfect vacation....

  • 5 of 5

We just enjoyed the best vacation we have ever had at the Fairways at Mauna Lani. This condo was perfect for our family to 4 adults and two teenagers. The condo was spacious and so very comfortable and the owners have gone above and beyond to ensure their guests have every possible comfort and convenience. We took full advantage of the stocked "beach closet" that included boogie boards, beach chairs, beach bags, coolers, beach umbrella, and even a folding beach "wagon" to transport your beach equipment! There were also long boards that we sadly did not get a chance to use. We also very much appreciated the stocked kitchen, which included a nice selection of condiments, as well as herbs and spices. The only thing that could be upgraded in the future were the knives, but we have two trained chefs in our family and we could be overly particular in this area. Even the bathrooms were stocked with shampoo and conditioner and hair dryers, which have not been the case with our VRBO rentals in the past. The beds and bed linens were heavenly-most restful sleep I've had! So wonderful, in fact, that I immediately purchased the same linens for my bed at home......

The Mauna Lani Resort area was spectacular! We spent several wonderful days at the private beach club, which was absolute paradise, and we enjoyed amazing snorkeling at the many beaches close by. The pool area at the Fairways was beautiful, and so peaceful- we often had the whole area to ourselves! Our teenage nephews made a daily ritual of swimming in the pool while the grown ups made dinner and we often all enjoyed a night swim or hot tub session after a wonderful day at the beach.

I cannot imagine a more perfect place to spend a family vacation! We will most definitely be back to this condo in the future, with the hopes of staying longer next time. Many Mahalos to the owners for sharing this amazing location and for providing your guests with so many "extras" that added convenience and comfort. We cannot wait to come back.......

Owner's Response: We love how our guests noticed two of our recent upgrades. First our bamboo linens are cool to the touch with a silky feel. Teamed with our comfortable mattresses, they help promote a good night’s sleep. We also recently added a folding beach wagon for hauling your stuff, kids included, to the beach. Although our kitchen knives are not chef quality, they are a pretty good set of Henckels knives. Mahalo for the excellent review!
