  • Incredibly Welcoming and Comfortable Condo

    "Nancy's Fairways Condo is as advertised! Despite the numerous reviews highlighting how well stocked the condo was, I must say I was still impressed with the array of conveniences throughout the condo (from beach equipment to kitchen appliances to spices and BBQ tools to shampoo to laundry detergent to beach towels) - this unit has it all! We (my wife, 8 year old daughter and 10 year old son) stayed for a week over Thanksgiving. It was our first visit to the Big Island and I had a lot of questions - Nancy was a generous resource leading up to the trip, patiently answering my myriad questions (in detail) and calming my (completely unfounded) concerns about the weather. Pro Trip: weather.com forecasts for Kohala are completely inaccurate; a week ahead of the trip, they showed 90-100% chance of rain all day/every day - it literally did not rain a drop the entire time we were there (except maybe late at night when we were asleep). The location is perfect, easy access to Foodland (the small/boutiquish grocery story just up the street from the condo), the Fairmont Orchid (where we did happy hour most nights and ran along the beach every day - life is about balance folks), restaurants, golf courses, Hapuna/Mauna Kea beaches (for boogie boarding), the owners beach (for lounging and snorkeling - if you like to snorkel, try the beach at the Fairmont as well, which you can access easily) - can't say enough about this beach, it is the perfect place to spend a day with the kids. For those of you who, like me before this, have always stayed at resorts and are considering renting a condo instead, there are pros and cons of each - but from a space, convenience, value perspective, the condo wins hands down; the only downside in my mind is maid service and the lack of a "pool scene" (there is a nice pool/hot tub at the Fairways, just not the same vibe as you would get at a resort with pool service), but for this condo in particular, the easy access to the Fairmont for resort amenities and the scene at the owner's beach definitely scratched that itch for us. I highly recommend this unit and agree with all of the great things other reviewers have said about it and Nancy. We would definitely stay here again on future trips."

  • Great location, well equipped and comfortable.

    "We had a great time at our annual family reunion. The condo met all our needs and the beach club pass and pool added to our fun! We enjoyed the bikes and it was nice to have additional snorkeling and beach gear. We love to cook and the kitchen was well equipped."

  • Sharing and experiencing a little piece of heaven.

    "My wife and I recently celebrated our fiftieth wedding anniversary at this very lovely and amazing home. We were joined by our children and their families. With five young, active grandsons to entertain, feed and watch over, we could not have designed a home more accommodating to satisfy our needs. After reserving the home for this occasion I immediately had trepidation that maybe it was a mistake for all of us to be under one roof for eight days. The reality is that the home is so well designed there was never a sense of crowding, offering plenty of privacy and a floor plan that allows everyone their own quiet place and little peace of heaven. The entire experience far exceeded our expectations, both in terms of the beauty of the property and the caring and attentiveness of the owners. If you are looking for a memorable and very special getaway, look no further."

  • Outstanding Big Island Home

    "Roger's villa on the Big Island is nothing short of outstanding! Our family of four (two adults, to young kids), spent a week in this beautiful villa (late Jul 2016), and we couldn't have been any happier. I don't think I can expand much on the numerous highly positive reviews you'll find here, so I'll condense my impressions as follows: 1) The first thing you notice about Roger's villa is how CLEAN is is. I mean, it's like nobody has ever been there since the place was built. My wife and I are clean freaks, and we were blown away. There is not a speck of dust nor a hint of dirt anywhere. Amazing! 2) This is really a **3 bedroom** disguised as a 2 bedroom. Yes, the third bedroom is a loft with a hideaway bed, but it's spacious and very comfortable. My 5-year-old boy had the time of his life in the loft. Honestly, this unit could easily accommodate three couples or a large family... understanding that the loft will be exposed to noise from those who stay up late or rise early. 3) This is obviously a second home for Roger and his family, and it shows. I can't find an expense that's been spared anywhere. The grill on the lanai? Better than anything I've ever cooked with. The dishwasher? Obviously new... and top of the line. The living room furniture? High quality and super comfortable. The beds? Not cheap! And we had a great night's sleep throughout our stay. 4) Access to The Beach Club is OUTSTANDING. A GREAT beach experience, and probably the best snorkeling we experienced on the island."
