We very much enjoyed our 17 nights at Mark’s condo. The condo is large, well furnished, very well decorated, with a well equipped kitchen and every beach toy you’d ever want. It is close to the pool, which can be a bit noisy (but wasn’t often while we were there). The view from the second floor balcony is nice, but unfortunately plantings somewhat obscure the view from the ground floor patio (but also act as a privacy screen for the unit). Mark is very responsive. We would stay there again.

This was our second stay in this home. Everything was as we remembered, clean, comfortable and had everything we needed for our tropical get away. We hope to return again soon!

Unfortunately the listing and price of unit is based on number of guests which was never disclosed. Sleeps 4 was listed, we fully paid for 2 guests, then invited friends and rate was raised $54.00 per night. Informed 2 weeks prior to booking and not able to change booking or deny friends usage. Unit is nice but extremely uncomfortable outdoor furniture and dining chairs. We left Tommy Bahama umbrellas and owner chose not to reimburse. And uncomfortable having a ring video camera at unit… seems invasive. We will never rent this unit again and we love other condos at Fairways Mauna Lani.

Everything went well. Any questions were answered quickly.

We absolutely loved Mark's place! It was the perfect location at the perfect resort. Close to golf, the beach and groceries. Clean and very nicely decorated it was a wonderful place to call home while on vacation. Mark checked in regularly to make sure we were ok and answered questions promptly. The bedrooms are very large and the king size bed in the master suite is extremely comfortable. We were also very pleased with how quiet it was at night. We will be returning!

The place was great - well equipped, clean, and easy to access. The rental contract beforehand felt a bit excessive, but overall the owner was helpful and responsive. Would definitely recommend for a family vacation in Hawaii!

We had such a wonderful stay! We are a family a five, and while this condo would be perfect for 2 couples with the 2 ensuite rooms, it worked great for our family! We loved having the rooms for sleeping upstairs, and the living space downstairs so my husband and I could work/watch TV while the kids slept. The location is amazing, a short walk to the beach at the Fairmont hotel, or a longer walk to the beach near the Mauna Launi. So many wonderful beaches to visit and explore! Although we especially loved just staying on the property. The pool was beautiful and there was even a kid friendly pool that our kids were in at least 4 hours daily! The place itself was so well equipped, with plenty of beach equipment, towels, and non-perishable foods to use so you don't need to buy salt/pepper or oils for cooking! The beds were incredibly comfortable and having 3 bathrooms was so convenient. Mark has done a beautiful job decorating, it was lovely. Mark was great to work with. We asked for a high chair which he made available the day we arrived. It was brand new so I assume he purchased just for us! It was nicer than our high chair at home :) We will definitely be visiting again!

The condo has plenty of space and was very well equipped. The beach club at Mauna Lani is great. We enjoyed our stay.

We had a very nice stay at this unit. The kitchen was well equipped with everything needed to prepare a meal. The decor and furnishings are nice. The bedding was very comfortable ( we are planning to purchase the same brand of pillow as it was fabulous!). The location of the unit was very convenient to the pool and although the unit faces a commons area (with a lovely view) we never felt a lack of privacy while sitting out on the patio or upstairs balcony. The Fairways complex is very nice and this unit is an excellent value. The pictures don’t do it justice. Only hiccup was no bath soap or body wash in either bathroom but Foodland is 3 minutes away so we could find it there. I assume this was just something that cleaning staff missed restocking before our stay.

As a VRBO user I appreciate having a kitchen. This kitchen has all,of the things you need to be comfortable. The washer and dryer makes packing easier. Alll of the things you need for a great trip are provided. You get a pass for the club at the beach, but you can also use the black sand 49 beach for only $20 per car. Both beaches have excellent snorkeling. I snorkeled about 4 hours per day. Awesome water clarity. Vibrant reef. Lots,of fish, eels, turtles, lobsters, and more. We hope to return again soon. We hope to stay here again. 10 out of 10. Mahalo

This is our 4th trip to the Big island and the best stay by far. Beautiful, clean condo... Our host was extremely helpful and responsive and his place is perfect! We had everything we needed... Linens, Beach chairs, Beach toys, pool access, Beach access app in a great location. Can't wait to come back and stay longer!!

Property is a very nice layout, very well maintained and clean. Incredibly well stocked with cleaning and cooking supplies, dishes and essentials. Bedding is quite comfortable and location is very convenient to pool. Mark is a very responsive host and answers inquiries quickly ensuring guests issues are addressed promptly. Keep the blinds drawn in the guest bedroom to prevent uneven temperature in the unit as it receives full sunlight during the day. Definitely look forward to returning again!

Everything about this property is wonderful and better than the photos. The location is perfect as it includes access to the private beach club that is perfect for snorkeling and for families with small children (calm waters). The condo is so well maintained and stocked with everything you need! We were surprised to find a fully stocked "beach closet" that included snorkel gear, boogie boards, noodles, toys, chairs. They had more beach gear than a previous home rented in the Mauna Lani complex a few years back. The host is wonderful being readily available for any needs and made check-in quite easy. We enjoyed our stay and hope to be back!

Pros-nice location, very clean place, quiet Cons-just days before your trip you will suddenly receive a lengthy contract from the owner chock full of warnings and legalese. Which at this point you have to sign or forfeit your money. Next the whole place is a “smart house” which the owner controls remotely and we quickly discovered he watches you come and go thru his doorbell. This raises the question of what else he’s watching or listening to. Sets a creepy tone in a light-hearted place like Hawaii. Next comes the fight over the AC with no instructions for how to use it (and you won’t be given any). He keeps it at 74 degrees but it ranges above the set point so it goes higher than that. With the heat and humidity it was so stuffy in this place we were really uncomfortable. He didn’t respond to our email request to have it lowered (you have no direct number for this guy) but without telling us at some point he remotely reset it to 70. It still cranks right back up the minute you leave (he’s watching). Place heats up again and you have to fiddle with the thermostat over and over and wait for it to cool back down. This back and forth continued the entire time. He then went ahead and charged us for lowering the AC from “his” level and took a substantial amount out of our $600.00 damage deposit to pay for it. So if you prefer your own AC level be aware it may be assessed as a damage. Weirdly you will be warned not to move anything in the unit. Don’t adjust furniture or any items and they must be left exactly how you found them. Uh. Okay. Not here to do interior design but whatever. Overall the entire experience with this owner was unpleasant despite the nice unit. I hesitated to write about this because he will lash out at anyone who says something negative and blame them, but if you go further back in the reviews other people note these same issues and worse. Unfortunately we only read the first few reviews.

This unit lacks for nothing. From cook ware, spices and dishes to a full assembly of beach equipment. The unit has a lovely up stairs balcony that looks over the common area. The pool is close. The amenity of the beach club and the beach trail walk can not be over stated. Planning on definitely staying again. The island itself is perfect for hiking and exploring.

Condo was very nice and well equipped with everything that you might need for a tropical vacation. Furnishings were clean and very well maintained. There were 2 of us in the unit and we were very comfortable. The grounds and pool were beautiful and the short drive to the beach and golf were an added bonus. We had an amazing time!!!

Wonderful condo in the Fairways with everything you need in it. Easy walk to the pool. Owner very responsive if we had a question. You could walk to the Shops and even to the Fairmont for a nice dinner. Super quiet unit even with other people in the adjacent units. We would highly recommend.

We rented this property for my parents as a 80th birthday present and stopped by to see it. It was perfect. Beautiful. Beach pass was used a lot. When questions arose, host response was speedy and helpful. Recommend highly!

One word...amazing. Mark has set up this home as the perfect home away from home for an Hawaiian vacation. The home is immaculate with all the amenities you might need while visiting the island. Communication throughout the process was spot on and Mark made sure we were settled in shortly after our arrival. The kitchen was well stocked just like you might find in your own home. The location is perfect for excursions while being away from the crowds of Kona. Definitely checking the calendar to schedule our next visit.

This property was beautiful and perfectly located near all the best beaches including the Mauna Lani Beach Club. All the beach toys were included with the property. A perfect vacation spot!

The property was very nice overall. Very beautiful grounds and also clean and quiet. We did have some challenges with the "smart home" light switches and the thermostat and wish there had been an instructional notebook for the condo for the thermostat, and TV remotes (very confusing). Also there was no screen door on the sliders to the lanai and the screen on the entry door was very difficult to open and cose and was torn on the bottom.

We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. Everything was almost perfect as we have expected. The place was so quiet, couldn't even hear the sound of the crying baby (at 5am) next door. Kitchen stuffs were plentiful that my wife was loving it. The whole complex is so upscale as well as the surrounding community. We were very fortunate to book this place during the peak season. Highly recommended.

My husband and two sons stayed in this lovely condo for 2 weeks. It is spotless and beautifully decorated. The pool is steps from the condo. There are plenty of chairs, they were never full and a soothing waterfall! It is a short walk to the beach where we watched the sunset very night. Perfect for sunset viewing. The Fairmont is within walking distance and they have a wonderful spa and restaurants. The grocery store, coffee shop, and juice bar are all within walking distance too. This condo is the best location in Mauna Lani. Quite and relaxing! We will stay here again.

The pictures don’t fully do this lovely condo justice. It’s spacious, tastefully decorated, and very comfortable. We stayed with our two year old daughter and enjoyed how close the pool was for quick trips back and forth. Due to covid we cooked most meals in the condo and the kitchen had everything we needed as well as a few basic food items like olive oil and spices stocked. We enjoyed the private lanai every day. The beach club access was also a great perk as it’s very family friendly and a perfect place for a toddler to swim in the ocean. Other great beaches are only a short 15 min drive away too. We had a wonderful stay and would highly recommend this condo.

Mark was a great host. The condo was super clean and well equipped. Location is excellent and access to the beach club is a bonus! The best beaches on the island are within a few minutes drive. Not the best condo if you have a disability as the bedrooms are up 1.5 flights of stairs and the master bed is really high off the ground. But if that is not an issue for you, you can't go wrong staying here. Condo was well stocked with boogie boards, beach chairs, and snorkeling equipment. And you will never run out of supplies like TP, paper towels, or bath towels. Overall highly recommended!

Nice property, good location for our needs. Disappointed that we were not made aware before booking that the pool and hottub area would be closed for the entire time of our stay. Frustrated that there was no hot water when we arrived and no serious attempt was made to repair, only excuses for why no plumber could come and even check out or replace. Had no hot water for entire stay.

We loved our stay! The property was exceptionally clean and well decorated. There is access to a pool that is beautiful. I could walk in 5 minutes to the pool and swim laps in the morning after a nice steamy cup of Kona brew. The property allows you access to the private beach club. This beach is one of the best beaches for snorkeling and lounging. It is set in a protected lagoon setting that is home to beautiful coral reefs housing a large variety of tropical fish. There are lounge chairs provided as well as a full service restaurant and bathrooms. Within a 5 minute drive, you have a wonderful grocery store; fresh juice bar and coffee shop. Don't miss a dinner at Tommy Bahamas restaurant that is also a 5 minute drive. Within a 10 minute walk exiting left of the property, you are at the Fairmont Orchid Resort. Highly recommend the Spa without Walls for a true treat. Went there twice and loved it! One of our favorite dinners was at Fairmont Orchid "Brown's Beach House". Exit right out of the property and you are short drive to Mauna Lani Resort. This resort has been recently renovated and is gorgeous! We treated ourselves to breakfast there a few times and also loved eating at their two restaurants. The sunset is the best I have seen. We plan to book again. Thanks Mark for your hospitality.

We loved our stay! Mark's place was beautiful (even more beautiful in person), very clean, and well stocked. Also very spacious, although it was just the two of us a family with children (bedrooms spaced out) or multiple couples could easily fit and still have plenty of privacy. The locations is great, in walking distance (about 1/2 mile or so) to Fairmont Orchid's beach, which has some of the greatest snorkeling and frequent turtles :). It was great to have access to the pool and hot tub, although we were so busy exploring we only made it there once. This is a very peaceful, clean, beautiful place to stay while you explore the Big Island! We hope to be back someday.

We loved our time at this condo. It is even better than the photos. The unit is well stocked with everything one needs. We especially appreciated all the beach gear. The pool is steps from the patio and access to the beach club was a huge bonus. The only small thing is that we couldn’t figure out how to adjust the air conditioning and it was actually a little too cold at night and we didn’t hear back from the owner. Otherwise, he was good at responding. We’d stay here again in a heartbeat.

We had a wonderful stay at this beautifully decorated home in the Muana Lani resort area. Our trip was so that we could visit our son and his fiancée and have them join us for a working vacation. This home did not disappoint!!! We were able to enjoy family time at the beginning and ending of each day as the kitchen, dining and living areas were cozy and inviting for gathering and planning. The location is perfect for anybody wanting to explore the island...half way between the ranches of Waimea and the “bustle”of Kona Town. The pool and hot tub were steps away and were a great respite at the end of a day of hiking or beaching it. Although we didn’t use the beach club at the resort we frequented Hapuna beach nearby. (It was recently noted as the best beach in the US by USA Today). The Main bedroom suite was lovely and spacious with a nice Lanai. The second bedroom was perfect and quiet. Mark was readily available to answer any questions that we had. We are hoping to stay again on our next visit!
