I’ve been visiting Mauna Lani for 14 years and this is by far the best 2 bedroom unit I have stayed at. The home was impeccably clean and maintained. The location can’t be beat as you can walk right out your door to the pool. This would be a huge plus with small children. We will be back again!
I have done the Hawaii 70.3 race a number of times now and this location (Fairways Mauna Lani) is simply a no brainer.
This specific condo was clean, comfortable, and very well stocked with everything. The few days before the race I just wanted to chill n cook at home and it had everything - even Tupperware for storing the huge amounts of leftovers. The owner Laura had informed me that the microwave was not working - and she went to the trouble of making sure a replacement unit was ready when I got there - much appreciated !
The garage even had a bike pump - useful for our race bikes !
This unit was a great place to chill and recuperate from the heat. I’m definitely thinking of returning.
We love the Fairways and this was our 8th stay at the complex over the last 9 years. This townhouse was equipped at just the right level with everything you needed and more. Laura was a pleasure to deal with as well as responsive and flexible. This may be the best unit we have stayed in at the Fairways and the location across from the pool and gym were perfect for us and our active teenagers.
Thanks again Laura - we hope to be back soon!!
We enjoyed our stay and we felt at home. They provided everything needed.
We very much enjoyed our wonderful stay at this beautifully decorated and well maintained spacious condo. This condo was thoughtfully stocked with great cooking supplies and dishes. Access to the private beach with all the beach toys was a plus. We appreciated the guitars, CDs and easy access to pool. Quiet area and enjoyed riding to Fairmont Orchid on the provided bikes.
Would love to return.
Resort quality condo with beautiful pool and outdoor space. Home was fully equipped with everything you could need for a fantastic holiday. Owners have thought of everything, including recreational equipment. Owner was very responsive and extremely considerate. We will definitely return!
You know how vacation rental pics almost always look better in photos than in person? That was NOT true with this property. The listing pics are great but this property is much more spacious and beautiful in person. The kitchen was stocked with everything we needed to cook/clean for our family. Access to coolers, boogie boards, and bikes was such a nice bonus. The entrance to the pool could not be any closer to this unit which made for an incredibly easy entry into the pool. One note of caution: beware of Karens on the premises. OG Karen#1 contacted the property owner to advise that we had a party of 5 (maybe even up to 6) people staying in our unit which is hilarious since the unit sleeps 5. We did in fact have 5 people in our party lol. While at the pool, OG Karen#2 sat down next to my wife and complained about how many kids were there to which my wife responded, “3 of those kids are mine”. There were 6 kids. OG Karen #3 interrupted a group of kids playing catch in the pool to advise them of the HOA’s long-standing prohibition of ball-throwing while at the pool. The group paused for a bit and then resumed ball play once she took her leave. All Karen reporting aside, it was a lovely property and we are already booked for next year!
We enjoyed our stay at this property very much. The home was very clean and well stocked. The location of this townhouse was a short walk or bike trip to the local market and shopping area and quick drive to multiple golf courses. We made time to hike the many trails near the property and along the ocean shore and would love to be able to go back. Mahalo
We'd never visited the Big Island so we weren't quite sure where to stay. We chose this place because of the proximity to the pool within the community and beaches nearby.
The condo is beautiful (pics don't do it justice) and very comfortable. We loved the pool and went swimming everyday- sometimes more than once! The rental comes with access to the owner's beach club which is fabulous. It is a wonderful spot to snorkel! We saw all sorts of fishies.
It's also about a 10 minute walk to the Fairmont where we watched the sunset, but didn't use the beach. The marketplace near by is great for buying groceries and quick dinners. The Island Gourmet Marketplace is about 10 minutes away and has a wider selection (like an ABC store).
It is about a 25-30 minute drive into Kona. We went one day and strolled and decided we were happy to be away from the crowds. But definitely didn't get down to any of the south Kona beaches.
Hapuna Beach and the 69 Beach are about 15 minutes north of the property and are great but you will pay for those.
I will say that if you're sitting outside on the patio, the A/C unit is VERY loud. It's pretty annoying actually. But a small quibble for sure.
We certainly enjoyed it here and would choose it again!
It has been our best stay in Mauna Lani since 2017.
We loved it! Available bikes, pool, our favorite beach, walking distance to the store. Many amenities. Huge thanks to the owners and manager. Can't wait to be back :)
Absolutely loved the condo. Truly felt like our home away from home. Wonderful location. Walkable to beaches, resorts, shopping and restaurants. Spent a lot of time on the patio. Morning coffee, lunch or dinner. Grill was nice to have too. Used the pool daily. Had everything we needed or wanted. This would be our 1st choice to book for future trips.
This place has everything you need for a fantastic Hawaiian vacation. The bikes, beach and snorkel gear were huge bonuses! The home was large and very clean and the location to the pool was so convenient! Laura was great to communicate with. We highly recommend staying here and hope to be back next year!
Has everything you need! Great location and amenities. We had a lovely time
This property exceeded all my expectations - every category - every level.
We stayed at this property in November and loved it so much that we planned another Big Island vacation as soon as we returned home! It truly has everything you could possibly want/need during your stay (even a guitar to play :O) and is very clean and well maintained. The garage is full of beach gear and bikes to use. We biked every day and snorkeled multiple times at the private owner’s beach. It’s close by and the snorkeling is great there. This rental is also close to Hapuna Beach, which is another favorite of ours. Foodland Farms Super Market is located just up the road and is open until 7 pm daily. Laura is wonderful to work with and we were honored to meet her in person this year. She accommodated a special request we made and suggested several more great places to visit this time around. We definitely plan to return and highly recommend this property. Thank you for another wonderful stay, Laura!
This townhome was equipped with everything needed for a great beach vacation. It was clean, comfortable, relaxing and quiet. The beautiful pool was located only a few steps from the back patio. We would definitely stay here again.
Thank you for sharing your beautiful kohala home. It is beautiful, clean, and quiet. Gorgeous grounds, wonderful pool steps from your door (perfect for kids! No schleping a ton of stuff. Just walk across 12 feet of grass to get to the entrance gate to the pool!), well appointed (it has absolutely everything you need!), and comfortable. Much larger than imagined. Very comfortable beds, plenty of towels and beach towels. And so many extras! Snorkel gear, boogie boards, even many pairs of water shoes incase you forgot yours at home! We didn’t end up using the bikes but they were nice bikes - 4 adult and 1 child bike. Lots of staples and spices in the fridge - it was so easy! We picked up groceries in Kailua Kona, but didn’t need to. The “foodland” market on resort property was the nicest grocery store of all, and honestly not much more(if at all more?!) expensive than other grocery stores we visited. It had absolutely everything we needed. Getting to the beach was a bit of an effort, since the unit isn’t super close to the beach. This resort propert is VERY large, but spread out…not crowded. We used the provided beach club access card and went to that beautiful little beach on property. United a few times. Decent snorkeling. Very calm. Ate at adjacent Na pua restaurant. Delicious, but pricey. Worth it but just fair warming. :)
Laura is a wonderful, informative, and helpful host. Great communication!
We will be back!!
Our stay here couldn’t have been nicer! Beautiful grounds, pool right out the back door, and access to the beach club which is amazing! Every detail is attended to in this home, and the kitchen and pantry are so well equipped. We can’t wait to come back again!
My husband and I stayed here for six nights at the end of March. The place was perfect! It was very spacious and exactly as it's pictured in the listing. It was amazing having the pool right outside the back door. We had the hot tub to ourselves pretty much every evening. We would highly recommend this property for a great Hawaiian vacation!
this unit was beyond our expectations. Thank you. Mahalo
This home was perfect! It was in a beautiful area with everything we could have wanted. My wife and I came to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary and had a wonderful stay.
The true magic was in the details though. All the beach and snorkeling gear was provided. They also had bikes which we used to ride around the area. We enjoyed the outdoor kitchen, the fitness center, the private beach, a guitar tucked away in the closet, and their fantastic master suite. And, had we brought our kids, they would have been set with their gaming systems as well.
Thank you, thank you for sharing your piece of heaven with us!!!
Beautiful, spacious property that had everything we needed to enjoy our time at the beach.

Great place, perfect owner and property manager. Highly recommend your stay here.
This was an amazing experience and I highly recommend it. I was at a work conference and so many were jealous of our place vs the Hilton Waikoloa. I gave them all the link to this wonderful place). Fully stocked with everything you could possibly need toys wise and supplies (condiments and laundry, etc) and it was so quiet. Felt like we were the only ones on the property
Such a pleasant experience overall in a beautiful home. Mauna Lani is a perfect location for relaxing at local beaches, the pool or heading out for any adventure…top of Mauna Kea, Kona fishing, Volcanoes National Park. Thanks for making our stay easy!
Had everything we need to enjoy our stay. Thanks!
We come to the North Waikoloa area every year and this is now our favorite rental. We will definitely be back. Well Stocked, comfortable beds, 10 feet from the pool.
We had a fabulous vacation at this lovely townhome at the Fairways Mauna Lani, that home is spacious and well appointed with a fully stocked kitchen, comfortable beds, and the pool just steps from the lanai. Loved having the bikes and beach toys for use. I’d love to come back next year. Host was gracious , thank you!
This property is wonderful! It is very clean and has everything you could possibly want. The kitchen is stocked with every utensil and appliance imaginable. We used the bikes, beach chairs and umbrella, beach bags, and cooler every day. There is even a shop vac in the garage so you can vacuum the sand out of your car after a day at the beach! The pool and hot tub were great and so convenient being steps away from this unit. It is also close to many amenities and beaches. We would definitely recommend staying here and hope to return someday. Thanks for a great stay!
We just had the best week at the Fairway at Mauna Lani in Laura's home. It was perfect! The condo was so well stocked and filled with so many fun things to use. We loved the bikes, beach chairs, umbrella. We wanted for nothing! We stopped at the grocery store before we checked in and we could have saved ourselves some groceries! Thanks for having the "staples" available to use. Laura was great to communicate with too. She let us know about some delays at the pool and was very upfront. We appreciated her willingness to take care of us. Thanks again and we hope to return again:)
Our family of 4 enormously enjoyed this place as home-base for our week exploring the Big Island. The unit itself, the Fairways pool, the extensive beach gear, the helpful information binders, and the location were all great. Thank you for hosting us! I’ll miss my morning coffee on the lanai….
Wonderful stay at this property. Anything you could want is available from snorkle masks to beach chairs. Excellent communication from beginning to end! My kids loved it. Would definitely stay again, and probably will! Highly recommend this property!! If we could have used golf cart I might not have left!
Property was great, location next to pool was wonderful! We loved that Laura was very easy to get a hold of when we had questions. Place is spacious, the desk in the master bedroom was great as i had to work a bit. The garage has everything for the beach/pool. We weren't able to use the bikes but it was good that we had the option. I would recommend this property to anyone going on vacation!
