Overview

About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms, Sleeps 6

Look no farther for your dream Hawaiian vacation. Just a short walk to white sand beaches set against turquoise waters, or drive 4 minutes to the world-class private owner's beach. Watch the sunset over the gentle waves while dining in an open air beachside restaurant. Lounge on one of 2 private lanais, or beside the oversized lagoon-style swimming pool. Indulge in world-class golfing, whale watching, and all the glories of the Big Island.

We take pride in offering you a beautifully furnished, immaculate retreat from the cares of the world. We've designed it to be upscale while still offering a tropical, Hawaiian flair.

The MASTER SUITE boasts carved Hawaiian furnishings, luxurious bedding on a king sized bed. An en-suite private bath with jacuzzi tub, dual sinks, granite counters, travertine floors, high-end separate shower, and plush towels complete your experience. Enjoy morning coffee or tea on the comfortable lanai right outside the suite overlooking the glorious Mauna Lani resort.

KITCHEN: Our town home offers you a gourmet dream kitchen, fully stocked with cookware and dinner ware. You'll enjoy gleaming granite counters, a teak-wood table for six and elegant service ware. Everything you could want. You'll find a GE profile stove, full oven, and microwave. Or step out onto the lanai to the outdoor kitchen with a sink, granite counter, and built-in stainless steel Viking grill. A coffee maker, Keurig Coffee system, toaster, tea kettle, and everything you need for a comfortable and relaxing stay are also provided.

SECOND BEDROOM: The 2nd bedroom is set with a king sized bed, and luxurious bedding. An adjacent full bath makes this the ideal home for 2 couples to share. Upon request, you will find two futon pads and linens to sleep another two people comfortably.

LIVING ROOM: Relax on high end furnishings in front of the flat-panel TV with surround sound, DVD player, cable TV, and wifi. Top quality furnishings transport you to the beauty and peace that you came to Hawaii to find.

THE BEACH: It's all about the beach, and you'll find gorgeous options within the resort. Our favorite is the private Beach Club with its white sand beach. Your exclusive KEY CARD gets you and your group into this gorgeous owner's beach and club only 4 minutes away. Comfortable blue cabanas are free, or use the beach chairs, cooler, and towels we supply. Enjoy drinks and the beach-side bar, munch on appetizers, or enjoy a full meal at this casual but exclusive club. SNORKELING here has been compared to swimming in a rich person's aquarium.

SPA: The Mauna Lani Spa and Racquet Club offers incredible relaxation and full tennis courts (extra charges apply).

GOLF: Mauna Lani Resort is a luxury Hawaii 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 at this luxury resort are masterpieces of design, each strikingly different, yet equally challenging. GOLF DISCOUNTS are available when you stay as our guest at Mauna Lani.

WORKOUT ROOM: Steps away from our villa, or indulge yourself at the Fitness, Tennis, and Spa Center minutes away.

POOL: Relax beside the waterfall, bubble away your anxieties in the hot tub, and cool off in the lagoon style swimming pool steps away from your lanai.

RESTAURANTS: Within Mauna Lani's resort, enjoy Ruth's Chris Steakhouse, Tommy Bahama's Restaurant, or the numerous restaurants at the Fairmont Orchid and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. Minutes away, at the Waikoloa Beach Resort, you'll find more choices including Roy's Bar and Grill, Starbucks, Romano's Macaroni Grill and both upscale and casual local fare. Don't forget numerous nearby choices for a LUAU... a must-see for every Hawaiian traveller.

Quiet, immaculate, luxurious 🌺✨

  • 5 of 5

RUN, don't walk, to book this amazing rental for your stay in Hawaii. My boyfriend and I stayed for a week over the Thanksgiving 2017 holiday. The rental is flawless, and I second what other reviewers noted about the thoughtful and luxurious touches that make this rental feel like home (comfortable bed, upscale furniture, fine kitchenware). The unit is also very quiet and calm. This was important to me as I am highly sensitive to noise, and always worry about things like road noise, pool noise, or noisy neighbors when deciding on a rental unit. So, if you too happen to be someone who is also sensitive to noise: please take it from me when I say that this unit is peaceful and serene and very quiet indeed. With the doors closed, is is practically sound sealed. The unit is adjacent to the Fairways entrance so, yes, there is some activity there during the day — but we were gone during the day anyways and it clears out entirely in the evening. I couldn't hear anything from the pool, and the downstairs lanai is tucked away from the neighboring unit so it feels totally private. There are palm trees all around the unit and it's very calming.

Everything in the house was well-labeled for our ease of use, and the owner was polite and responsive throughout the booking process. Even though we were just one couple, we enjoyed having the extra space compared to a hotel room or smaller rental. We came to scuba dive so had lots of diving and photography gear that we were able to spread out and work on. We enjoyed using the BBQ one night to make hamburgers. We brought our Apple TV and hooked it up to the living room media unit so that we could watch Netflix and rent movies on iTunes. It's my second time staying in the Mauna Lani because the private beach club is divine and so worth it.

We had a great time on the island. Some of our top recommendations:

📍Tommy Bahama Restaurant at The Shops at Mauna Lani (key lime pie is outstanding)

📍Lava Lava Beach Club in Waikoloa (3 greens and grain bowl)

📍Da Poke Shack in Kailua-Kona (rated #1 place to eat in the US on Yelp in 2014)

📍Holuakoa Gardens and Cafe (good for post-Volcanoes National Park)

📍Nāpua at the Mauna Lani Beach Club (mango margaritas, sunset cocktails)

📍Mai Grille by Allen Hess in Waikoloa for breakfast (order the coffee)

📍Big Island Divers (don't miss the manta ray night dive)

📍Hamakua Macadamia Nut Company (low key vibe and fun tastings)

Fabulous home away from home

  • 5 of 5

Wish I could call this place MY home! It was so elegant, peaceful, beautiful, and just what we needed as our home base on the Big Island. The five of us totally enjoyed every aspect of your home, and loved having all the amenities right at hand. It was nice having a washer and dryer right in the unit, complete with laundry products. There was sunscreen, insect repellent, ample beach towels - all things you don't want pack, but necessities! The kitchen was totally furnished, from the Keurig (love it!) to a blender, lots of pots and pans, all utensils, and the grill! The Viking grill got quite the workout while we were there. We didn't eat out much - just grilled or snacked. We did attend the luau at the Fairmont Orchid on our last night, and it was fabulous. Two of our party golfed, twice. We spent lots of time at the pool and/or beach, and most times the pool and hot tub were our own private oasis. Thank you for sharing this wonderful place with others. It was our first VRBO experience, and we will definitely go that route again.

Beautiful townhome in quiet area

  • 5 of 5

Four of us spent 16 days in this lovely townhome. Owners, Bill and Margaret were a delight to deal with and answered all my questions. We spent a lot of time ain the pool and the frounds were very well maintained. We also spent time at the private beach and enjoyed that very much. We had a car so we toured around and we always gald to get back to our peaceful home. We ate every meal outside on the patio and many meals were cooked there. The beds were very comfortable.

Amazingly relaxing and quiet!!! Much better experience than a resort hotel.

  • 5 of 5

I felt light headed my blood pressure dropped so low. The perfect retreat to renew and refresh. The goal of our trip was to unwind and relax, enjoy each other and catch up on reading. I think I read 4 books. Thank you Bill and Margi for an incredible time. Your place is a blessing!! Thanks for sharing! Bruce & Sue
