I'm a forever fan of the Mauna Lani Fairways. This unit was exactly what we needed during our stay at the Big Island. A beautiful home, in a beautiful neighborhood, on the best part of the island. Snorkeling at the Beach Club or 49 Black Sand Beach is amazing. Hapuna Beach State Park, and Mauna Kea Beach are two exits over in case you want gentle waves on soft sandy beaches. I had a minor issue that required contacting the property manager and she answered on the second ring and resolved the issue in seconds. Can't say enough positive things about this place. We loved it.

Jim and Jane’s beautiful Fairways condo is even better than the photos. The property was clean and well equipped with everything that we needed. The condo is conveniently close to Hapuna Beach. During our stay, we also enjoyed having access to the beach club and then coming back for a refreshing dip in the Fairways pool. Thank you for sharing your home with us!

Everything you could want and expect in that location. Nice complex, "beach club" a real plus, walkable to local hotels, good condition - great stay!

Absolutely outstanding!!! Great place for a family. Beach chairs, mats, snorkle equipment. Lanai was amazing with the outdoor grill and kitchen. Private gated community very quite. Private beach access was very nice! We enjoyed our stay and hated to leave, really appreciated the opportunity to use such an amazing place. Thank you!!!

We enjoyed our stay, and the unit was clean, comfortable, and nicely appointed. Check-in was easy, and we had no issues whatsoever. Our daughter loved the pool, and we all loved going to the Beach Club. We hope to return in the future!

We had a great stay here, the condo was really wonderful. No complaints. The garage is a bit small but there are plenty of parking spots outside. Wish we could have stayed here our whole vacation.

Thanks to the wonderful hosts of this home our stay was perfect! Centrally located to all things needed. The condo was beautiful, very clean, a side from personal groceries for meals you plan the kitchen is stocked with anything you’d need for cooking. No need to over pack beach towels or beach gear the garage is also stocked with anything you need. Full size shampoo, conditioner and body wash, laundry detergent and dryer sheets were all provided for your convenience. We had a lovely time taking morning walks on a different beach each day, snorkeled every afternoon after a day of exploring different parts of the island, evening swimming in the pool and soaks in the hot tub that’s only a short walk from the condo.We look forward to coming back soon, still so much more to see and explore.

This is our 5th time staying at the Fairways. This unit is in a great location in the complex. The lanai is open and airy compared to other units. We enjoyed BBQing right on the lanai and sipping our favorite wine while watching the sunset. The townhome is equipped with all of the necessities for a great stay! The owner is very responsive. We highly recommend this townhome.

We have stayed at various units in the Fairways and found this one to be the best equipped/cleanest. Also really appreciated being able to use the garage for parking which we have not been able to before. Last time we were at the complex, pool was closed so was very much enjoyed this go around and unit is a short walk. Unit has great sunset views and we were lucky enough to catch a fabulous fireworks show from the Fairmont. The photos show 2 twin beds in the downstairs bedroom but were combined when we stayed which is actually preferable and found to be quite comfy. Another plus, plenty of beach towels. Had to laugh because I looked all over for them when we got there. Found them to be in a bin inside the downstairs bedroom closet, labeled which I missed. Only downside for us was that the large beach umbrella in garage has definitely seen some things. If we had known, would have happily grabbed another when we were at Costco. All in all, fantastic visit and would absolutely stay again. Oh wait, we are, in the fall :-) Thanks for a great time!!

I’ve stayed on the big island before near this neighborhood. And really enjoyed this one. It’s very convenient to everywhere, is a great launching point for driving anywhere. We saw the volcano eruption and it was just magical! Explored all over the island. Just a great stay altogether.

We enjoyed our stay in this Fairways condo. Only suggestion is the lower twin beds are really more like cots and actual beds would be more comfortable. Otherwise the rest of the furnishings are great. Unit had everything you need to enjoy a beach vacation and we definitely will consider this unit for our next visit.

This Condo is within walking distance of some beautiful small beaches, ancient fish ponds, a resort grocery store, coffee and restaurant. The landscaping is beautiful and the condo well cared for. We loved exploring the Island, then coming home to this peaceful environment. The main bedroom suite is upstairs with a balcony to enjoy your morning coffee, or the downstairs bedroom has twin beds and a full bath in the hallway. The patio off the kitchen is also a good spot to enjoy your coffee, while planning your day and listenning to the exotic birds. We hope to go back soon.

We enjoyed the property and how it was well stocked with everything needed for our short stay (15 days). The home is well taken care of. We have stayed in the same complex several times before. We also enjoyed Karlynne and her prompt response to our every question. We truly felt home away from home during our stay.

We stayed for 11 nights and this was the perfect oasis for our first trip to the Kona area. Mauna Lani is much more quiet than. Kailua-Kona so made our trip so much more relaxing. The townhome was clean, well maintained and had all the amenities we needed.. Was able to park our car in the garage and able to use the various beach gear including beach towels, chairs, umbrellas, cooler, mats and even some snorkel gear. Property managers Karlynne and Zech welcomed us and were very responsive when we had questions or small things to address. Kitchen had all we needed including electric water kettle, keurig, toaster and blender so we could make our daily smoothies. The Lanai w BBQ was size for 4-6 with a view of the golf course as the sun was setting. Private enough to not be bothered by the other homes. Community pool and hot tub nearby In the center of the complex. The biggest bonus was the key card access to the Mauna Lani Beach club minutes away where there is a sandy beach and small cove to lie out in the sun, swim and anorkel! Thank you Jim and Jane for providing such a wonderful place for us to vacation in. We hope yo return again!

We loved staying at Jim and Jane’s lovely condo. It was easy to find, easy to check in and sparkling clean when we arrived and had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation. It was great to have a garage with an inside door to the condo. Very convenient when coming and going. We thought the furniture was not only nice to look at but very comfortable. The master bedroom bed was exceptionally comfortable. The condo was very quiet and had a beautiful view from the lanai where we enjoyed cooking dinner on the gas grill. We appreciated the detailed instructions the owners left which made it easy to use the TV, WiFi etc. The Fairways are in such a beautiful and convenient area near stores and the best beaches in the area. The owners also left great information about the best places to visit. Jim was very accommodating to work with and easy to communicate with. He did everything possible to make our stay a happy one. And a special shout out to Karlynne and Zach his on island caretakers. Very helpful and responsive if we needed anything. So yes we loved our stay here and would highly recommend this condo!

The property is clean and well appointed with a good location. There were a couple of very minor issues and the property manager was extremely responsive and helpful. The pool is down for renovation but that is a temporary situation. The use of the garage is a bonus. I would be happy to return to this property.

Very nice. Plenty of space, lots of light, clean, quiet, well located in resort. Pool was being refurbished but we knew in advance. Small things: grill would not light (out of propane). Front load clothes washer could use cleaning- would have done it, but did not have cleaner. Would be good to stock in condo. Overall, great place to stay.

Very nice property, everything as expected. Nice pool area, toys in the garage were perfect for the beach. Garage is small so a full size SUV probably won’t fit, but there is outside parking. Near many beautiful beaches and a small grocery store right down the street. Very comfortable for a family of four with a teenager and 10 yo. Overall we really enjoyed staying here and would stay here again. Mahalo!

This condo is a beautiful place to spend our vacation. The pool was fabulous, as well as the property. I would recommend this place for friends, family, couples etc. There were boogie boards, chairs, umbrellas, and a cooler for our use. He was also nice to be able to put our car in the garage and access the house that way. Thank you for a beautiful stay.

I just wanted to say thank you for renting us your home! We had a wonderful time and the beach club was the perfect spot for our toddler to play in the sand and surf. We ate at the restaurant there at the beach club for Mother's Day and it was a fantastic meal with exceptional service. We would love to come back to the big island and would definitely stay at your condo again!

We loved our stay here-especially the beach! The snorkeling was fantastic; the condo was close to all the amenities; perfect location. We could easily drive anywhere on the island and would absolutely stay here again on our next trip to the Big Island!

June 2014
We were privileged to stay at this great townhome for 9 days. It was beautiful, clean and very well appointed. It was even nicer than the pictures! There was lots to do in the area - walking distance from the Shops at Mauna Lani (with free evening programs many nights), Mauna Kea and Hapuna beaches as well as access to the Mauna Lani Beach Club. The owners were extremely helpful in answering any questions we had and worked with us when some unforeseen circumstances came our way and delayed our trip. We would certainly recommend this property to others and will return to this property when we return to the Big Island.

We had a great 8-day stay at this condo. The condo was even nicer than as shown in the pictures. The property was very clean and well maintained. The owner was very helpful in providing directions to the condo and the description of the Mauna Lani Resort area. I highly recommend this property. The beach club was only about a mile drive and it was beautiful. The water was so clear and we were able to snorkel there at the beach club. We would love to stay at this condo again on our return back to the Big Island!

We just returned from a week stay on the Big Island and this was a perfect townhouse to make as a base for exploring! The house is very nicely decorated and the master bedroom is gorgeous! Jim was very helpful before we arrived, he gave us many suggestions of what to see on the Island. We loved the private beach and spent many hours there. We also enjoyed the pool- which was never crowded! But our favorite thing about this house is the location- it is in a very nice complex, very quite and private. I was able to go for a run down to the Fairmont Orchid and run along the beach back to the Mauna Lani Fairways! We were able to do day trips all over the island and then come back to the townhouse, relax and then head to the Mauna Lani Shopping Center for dinner! We really enjoyed the Tommy Bahamas Cafe and Just Tacos! I would love to stay here again!

Great stay at Fairways - we have tried other properties through VRBO and this is one of our favorites. Excellent pool facility compared to other nearby locations, PLUS Mauna Lani Resort Beach Club Access. Fitness centre was a little "light" but we spent most of our time on the golf courses in the area, at the beach or in the pool anyway. Nearby resort areas provide plenty of opportunity for shopping and fine dining. The unit itself was very tastefully furnished, clean and the kitchen very well stocked. Met a few very nice people at the Fairways while visiting and plan to come back again soon !

June 2010
This condo is GREAT! The views are as advertised and fantastic, everything is neat and up to date, great condition and location. Easy to settle in and enjoy the area. We loved the beach club access and spent many hours there - excellent snorkeling. We can't wait to return!
