About Wendi Watterson

We are an adventurous Alaskan couple who have lived all over the western United States. We have been coming to Hawaii for over 30 years and fell in love with the Islands on our first trip. It has been our dream to have our own place in paradise ever since. There is no better cure for Alaska's cold dark winters than a few days in the Hawaiian sun.

Wendi Watterson purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Wendi Watterson chose Puako

After spending time at several properties on many of the islands, Kona and the Fairways fulfilled all of our expectations.

What makes this townhome unique

The Fairways offer the best pool in Mauna Lani, outstanding golfing and a truly beautiful Beach Club. This is a townhouse that feels both luxurious and homey.

Fairway Villas Unit 705 - KVMKONA2017

  • 5 of 5

Our entire family (13 people, ranging in age from 2-90) enjoyed a fabulous vacation on Kona and stayed in four of the Fairway Villas units. Unit 705 was great! Nicely appointed, spacious and comfortable. My one caveat is to have someone who understands digital locks, which this unit has. At my age, I was too old to figure it out but my children were able to manage okay! Wendi is a great owner and I highly recommend this property.

We absolutely loved this home! The location was perfect: close to many beaches(we loved going to Hapuna the most, its only about 10 min away), shopping, and golf courses(my son played at the Waikoloa golf course a couple of time; they have reasonable prices for teenagers). Having a swimming pool on the property was a big plus. Kids loved to go there for a swim after a long day of sightseeings. The house had everything we needed. It was really convenient to have beach chairs, boogie boards, and towels there. Wendy was a pleasure to deal with, very helpful with any question we had. I would absolutely recommend it!!!

Great spot

  • 5 of 5

Our second time there and just as good as the first. The house is clean upon arrival and has all the amenities and more than we needed. For the things we liked to do it on the western side of the island it is a perfect spot. Drive an hour in any direction and you can cover half the island (from star gazing to snorkelling and everything in between). Quiet throughout the day and night and the pool is a 2 minute walk to cool off after a day of adventure. Will definitely stay there again when we go back.

Wonderful place to stay in Mauna Lani

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I and another couple have just spent two weeks at Wendi and Jim's condo in the Fairways in Mauna Lani. From the initial discussions (via VRBO) with Wendi on the dates, etc. The experience was very good. Wendi was so quick to respond and very, very helpful. Any no time did we wonder about any part of the rental. When we arrived the directions to the place were right on and there is parking right out front.

The condo itself is extremely clean and well layed out. The furniture is also very comfortable and as my wife and I have rented places in Mauna Lani 6 or 7 time, this one has by far the more comfortable furniture. The other thing that really sets this place apart is how well stocked it is and the quality of the kitchen gear was excellent.

The wireless is very fast and coverage is good, the barbecue is very nice and the beds are comfortable.

I am hard pressed to find anything wrong with there Hawaii home. I will not only rent this again if it available, I will definitely be recommending this to anyone that will listen.

Whomever is reading this and you are not familiar with the Big Island, the Mauna Lani area is the sunniest place to stay with lots of places to visit. There is great access to shopping and groceries within walking distance.

Thank you Wendi and Jim for sharing your wonderful home with us. It was such a great place to stay. Oh, ya, the pool is very nice too although we only used it a couple times when it was too windy on the beach.

Excellent vacation home

  • 5 of 5

This was a wonderful property for our family vacation. It was clean, well maintained, provided all sorts of little extras that made our stay enjoyable. I would highly recommend this property particularly to families who like to cook their meals at home, hang out on the deck, enjoy the pool and gym facilities and who like to venture out to see the sites of the Island of Hawaii.

Thank you Wendi for a wonderful vacation.
