About the area

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.

“What a great place!”

Reviewed 16 Jun 2017

My wife and our 3 kids loved staying here for 9 days. Everything you needed in the kitchen if you plan on staying in and making meals. Surfboards, boogie boards, coolers, chairs, wagon to transport for your day at the beach. Spacious home, very clean. Great BBQ and outdoor eating area. Pool fantastic as well! Mahalo!

Owner's reply: We keep adding new items that help our guests enjoy their time at Mauna Lani. The latest is an expandable wagon to haul all of your items to the beach. This is especially helpful with children. Mahalo for the great review!

Thank you for the nice review. We are glad you enjoyed your stay at our villa. We look forward to your next visit to Mauna Lani.

Best Fairways .... by far! Perfect for young families!

Let me start by saying we have stayed at several Fairways villas over the past 7 years or so that we have been coming to the Big Island, and this one is by FAR the best. We really felt like we were guests in a dear friend's home. Everything you can possibly think of is provided - beach toys, towels, umbrellas, boogie boards, surf boards, snorkel gear? and not just a motley collection of odd leftovers from past visitors, but top-of-the-line, clean, great gear, much of it brand new. And the house itself is marvelous - again, the kitchen is very well-equipped with every pot, pan and gadget you could want (and I was gratified to see there were plenty of cooking basics already present for our use, from olive oil to spices to ketchup etc. Most .... rentals you go into are BARE and you end up spending fifty bucks just stocking up if you plan to do any cooking at home) Everything worked properly, from the TV to the washing machine (something else you don't always find with ....). Our family of four (2 elementary age kids and 2 adults) had an absolute blast and were completely comfortable and at-home the entire time. We didn't use these but I noticed the place is also very well set up for toddlers/babies, with a pack n play, strollers, booster seats etc. And best of all, the owners left a personally written binder with all kinds of useful and interesting information about the area, from best beaches to best grocery stores etc. Truly the best .... ever!

We use our villa as our second home and are happy that others can use it for their vacations. We have made recent upgrades that include a new 50" television in the living room, a sound bar with Bluetooth streaming capability and new shower heads. Our property concierge is making good decisions regarding food items that can be kept for the next guest. This eliminates waste, saves money and the need to restock every spice and condiment. We are glad that our guests are enjoying our home and the Big Island for their vacations. We also appreciate this guest writing such a splendid review.

Perfect!

We felt that everything was as advertised. The unit is spacious and top notch quality. Our only complaint would be that there are two nearby air conditioner pumps that turn off and on 24 hours a day. They are annoyingly loud and wasteful. The kitchen is fully equipped and we brought quite a bit of food from home to barbeque and make salads, it worked out great. Great job Wayne and Diana for making a comfortable, clean and upscale place for us to stay. Thank you.

Our guests love our kitchen and try new island recipes during their visits. Our Viking grill makes it easy to barbeque meat from the nearby Foodland Farms market and serve it with a salad using vegetables from local farmers. The evening temperatures are often cool and breezy which allows our guests to open the sliding doors and adjust our environmental friendly Ecobee thermostat. Since the Mauna Lani resort is so quiet, the only noise that one might hear are the air conditioners from distant units that do not take advantage of the beautiful nights. Thank you for the splendid review.

I've stayed at various units at the Fairways and this by far is the best. The unit was clean and comfortable - perfect for post race recovery. The kitchen was well equipped and even the pantry had a few things that proved to be useful. Beach towels, kitchen/dining utensils, wifi, A/C, TV, comfy beds, etc are just there for us to use and enjoy. All communication with the owners and property mgr were excellent, clear. Wayne even tracked me at my race and sent me a 'Well Done' email after.

We are happy to have as our guests the athletes that come to the Big Island to compete in the annual events. One of these, the Ironman 70.3 ?Honu? Triathlon is held in May or June in the Mauna Lani Resort. We are so impressed with the performance of our guests during these swim/bike/run meets. We are also happy they can relax and unwind in our villa after the race. The swimming pool and spa at the Fairways are some of the best in the area and the beaches along the Kohala Coast are some of the best in the world.

Beautiful Condo, Beautiful Trip
Date of Stay
June 5, 2015
The condo was beautifully decorated, large and comfortable. Easy walk to the pool and hot tub but not too close to hear it. Completely equipped, including surfboards, beach chairs & toys. Only needed to bring carry-ons since the condo has a W&D. Loved the beach club. Always able to find a cabana or chaise lounge. Fun snorkeling. Ate at the restaurant at the beach club, Napua, several times. We loved waking up to the smell of plumeria and the sounds of birds while having our coffee on the lanai each morning. Conveniently located to the best beaches on Hawaii. I highly recommend and will dream of returning soon.

My Response
We agree that one of the pleasures of staying in our villa is waking early in the morning and enjoying a cup of Kona coffee and a slice of banana bread on the lanai. While sitting there you can enjoy the sounds of birds while looking out over the tropical landscaping of the resort without being annoyed by golf course mowers or noises from the swimming pool. Although the swimming pool is one of the best in the area, our guests also enjoy the convenience of the Mauna Lani Beach Club. It offers private parking, beach chairs, a restaurant and some of the best snorkeling on the Big Island. Aloha to this guest and we hope they return soon.

The location is perfect with easy access to amazing beaches, shopping and restaurants. The condo has everything you'd need/want for a super comfortable stay. Anything and everything you think you'll need is there from top grade appliances to beach towels. The place is decorated beautifully, the grounds are kept up perfectly and the pool and Jacuzzi are just steps away. If you want to head to the beach it's an easy walk as well. Now that I'm back home I miss the birds chirping in the morning and sitting on the lanai drinking coffee staring out into paradise. I can't wait to go back!

There are many reasons to stay in the Mauna Lani Resort and many special advantages of staying in our villa. We understand our guests’ desire for a well-equipped and supplied place to call home during their island stay. Aloha.

Wayne and Diana have truly created an oasis inside the Fairways. Our week long stay was absolutely perfect. Our party of six - four adults and two children, ages 5 and 8 - found the villa comfortable and well equipped. More than enough beach supplies were in the garage - plenty of chairs, umbrellas, toys, boogie and surf boards, etc. We spent every day exploring the surrounding beaches, Mauna Lani Beach Club and Mauna Kea Beach being our favorites. After long and relaxing days at the beaches, coming home to such comfort was a treat. Having the villa stocked with the basics (detergents, sugar, spices, shampoo, etc) upon our arrival was much appreciated. We ate dinner away from home only twice since we took advantage of the kitchen and grill. Foodland Farms just around the corner was very convenient. Our children loved the twin beds in "their bedroom" and recouped from their fun days at the beach watching the kids movies in the family room. There were so many touches throughout the villa that were well thought out! We can't wait to return!

We love it when we receive such wonderful praise from a guest. We want our villa to be clean and well supplied, just as we expected the many times we rented units using ..... We were often disappointed by flimsy beach chairs and the lack of household supplies. Often the first thing we did after arriving on the Big Island was a trip to the market to buy soap, paper towels, salt and pepper. We want our guests to enjoy their vacation and spend it at the Mauna Lani Beach Club or the fabulous pool at the Fairways instead of shopping for supplies. Aloha to our guests who return year after year.

Family of five. Beautiful and comfortable condo. Better than photos. Well-stocked kitchen and garage (beach gear etc.) Quiet area within gated community. Short walk to nice pool. Access to beach club was nice.
My Response
Our guests enjoyed having free gated parking at the Mauna Lani Beach Club with private cabanas and lounge chairs. It is one of the top snorkeling sites on the Big Island. Mahalo for the review.

The villa was perfect for our family (the two of us and our three adolescent children). Beds are really comfortable, and the location and size of the washrooms is great. As a family that does not like eating out too much (although that are many really nice places to have a great meal or just a cocktail in the area), we thoroughly enjoyed a large kitchen/dining area and, particularly, barbecue on the lanai. Fairway's location allowed us to explore all of the best beaches in the area easily, and, as it turned out, our favourite was the closest one - Beach Club. It was perfect for spending the day swimming and snorkelling. One of our favourite relaxing-at-the-villa moments was taking a 1-minute walk to the pool where we could spend the evenings floating in the warm water while enjoying the view of the star-filled sky through the palm branches. Overall, we loved the island, we want to return to enjoy it again, and we would love to stay at the same villa again.

There are many great restaurants in the area. Some are only a short walk from our villa but one of the pleasures of staying here is cooking your own meal. It is easy to grill your favorite meat on the lanai barbecue while enjoying a tropical drink. After dinner you can extend your leisurely day by strolling down the path to the resort pool. We are so excited that this guest appreciates our villa the same way we do.

This condo was just beautiful and very well appointed. It's much larger than the photos on line make it appear. The condo manager Larry met us when we arrived and walked us through and gave us fabulous tips on great beaches and places to visit. The lanai was gorgeous.. We loved sitting outside and drinking Mai tais while grilling up dinner after long days on the beach. The grounds of the complex were immaculate and the pool was breathtaking. This is a place we would stay again and again. Thanks Wayne for sharing your lovely condo!

From the blue palm that greets you at the gate to the large monkeypod trees that shade the central area, the Fairways at Mauna Lani gives the impression of being within a tropical botanical garden. Being able to use the outdoor grill with an adult beverage in hand is a favorite way to enjoy this beautiful setting. Mahalo for the nice review.

My husband and I just spent 4 weeks in this lovely home. The furniture in the living room is updated and very comfortable, both for tv viewing and conversation. We would have appreciated more HD channels, but we were there longer than most vacationers, so watched more tv than some. The kitchen was well stocked and equipped. I can't recall anything I missed having. The master bedroom was also nicely furnished. The bed was very comfortable. I liked the bamboo sheets. They were both soft and cool. We had guests join us for part of our stay and they all raved about this home. Both the owners and their property manager, Larry, were dreams to work with. I recommend without hesitation.
My Response

We are so happy that our guests enjoyed their extended stay in our villa. Our comfortable beds and well equipped kitchen are keys to a relaxing vacation. The entertainment center in the living room contains a 50” LCD television and sound bar for great video entertainment. Our basic cable service provides HD content for the local stations as well as SD content of most cable stations. An upgrade in HD service would require cable boxes hooked up to all 4 televisions. Our guests do have the advantage of using the HD streaming services offered by Amazon, Netflix and others. WiFi Internet service is also available throughout the villa. Malaho to our guest for this great review!

We had a great time during our stay. The location of the condo and the amenities of the pool and private beach were perfect for the family. We loved exploring the beaches up and down the coast and appreciated the owners help and suggestions on things to do during our stay. Owners are very responsive and helpful. A GREAT place to stay!

We like knowing that our guests appreciate our villa for the things we love. Our location is a short walk to the beach but also has private access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club. The resort swimming pool is one of the largest in the area. Our location is also close to some of the best beaches in the United States if not the World (Dr. Beach named Hapuna Beach 1993 #1 Beach and named Kauna’oa #1 in 2000). Mahalo for the nice review!
