June swoon rate best fairways location, sun… – vrbo electricity experiments for 4th graders


While the Big Island is always incredible, our recent trip to Mauna Lani was truly one of the best because of our gorgeous accommodations in Jan’s Fairway condo. The pictures and descriptions can’t capture the quality, ambiance and location of this property. The accommodations are well decorated with attention to detail (pictures, furniture, kitchen amenities, electronics including TV, Music, etc) and you truly feel like you are at a ‘home away from home’. Jan helped with the details of our stay and so many great suggestions for the surrounding area including food, beaches and activities. We’ve been to Mauna Lani many times without our children and the condo proved to be a perfect combination of luxury and location. Truly a paradise made even better by the accommodations and hospitality!

LET US SPOIL YOU IN OUR NEWLY DECORATED HOME IN A HAWAIIAN PARADISE. Porcelain tile floors throughout the downstairs, granite & stainless kitchen stocked with the gourmet chef in mind. We have a Viking gas barbecue on the lanai. Sit on your lovely lanai and look across at the 12th hole on the Mauna Lani golf course.

For our guests who want to REMAIN CONNECTED, there is WI-Fi internet access throughout the house. 3 TVs, including a 55 inch smart tv and Streaming Ne-Flix. We also have a sound bar set-up in our living room so you can bring your favorite music.

WE HAVE THE TOP LOCATION AT THE FAIRWAYS AT MAUNA LANI. From the downstairs lanai look out towards the 12th hole fairway of the Mauna Lani golf course about 75 yards away. Look 200 yards across at the beautiful homes of Puoaia. Listen to birdsong every morning as they call to each other across the lava and perch in the beautiful Heliotrope trees outside our lanai. Best of all, prepare your favorite libation and pupus so you can sit on the lanai toasting to the end of a tropical day while watching the sunset each evening. Perhaps if you are lucky, you will see the green flash.

YOU WON’T ARRIVE TO AN EMPTY CUPBOARD. We cheerfully provide basic staples. You won’t arrive and find 1 roll of toilet paper at our house or just a salt and pepper shaker in the guest food cabinet. If you are arriving late, our Property Manager can arrange to have AM breakfast supplies waiting for you. If you are a new visitor to our island, let us be your remote concierge. We collect many suggestions about restaurants and excursions that we are happy to pass on to you.

Our guests have SPECIAL ACCESS TO THE HOMEOWNERS BEACH club that includes a full service restaurant and cabanas along the beach. This is a wonderful snorkeling area for beginners and veteran snorkelers. GOLFERS RECEIVE A GUEST DISCOUNT AT THE WORLD FAMOUS MAUNA LANI COURSES.

We have enjoyed several extended stays in this well designed townhome. It is a very well maintained, clean, comfortable, nicely appointed and quiet spot. The owners, Jan and Michael, and the property manager, Larry, are responsive should there be a need. The kitchen is nicely equipped with all you need for as much cooking as you might care to do. The location in The Fairways is quiet and the design of the condo plus the landscaping gives good privacy on both the upper and lower lanai. We especially like that we can keep the windows open and enjoy the fresh Hawaiian air. During our stays in the winter months there is normally no need to close things up to run the air conditioning.

We love our leisurely breakfasts on the lanai. Most days we take advantage of the wonderful, protected Mauna Lani beach for some excellent snorkeling and swimming. Alternatively, the Fairways pool and spa is a 2 minute walk. We stock up on fresh produce and other goodies at the Wednesday and Saturday farmer’s markets in nearby Waimea — an easy 25 minute drive. Grocery items, restaurants, and other shops are conveniently on the Mauna Lani Resort property located just 1/2 mile away.

There is much to do and there are so many areas to explore on the Big Island. We previously stayed both in the Kona area and on the far north of the island, but we’ve settled on The Fairways at Mauna Lani as the ideal spot. Jan and Michaels’ townhome has repeatedly been our ‘go to’ location.

We stayed here for 13 days with our two daughters (9 & 12). The condo is very well kept and comfortable and the kitchen was well stocked for cooking. We made breakfast and dinner almost every day. The pool is just a short walk away and was empty most of the time. Access to the beach club is the best! Perfect for the kids to snorkel for the first time. We didn’t do much activities on this trip since we hit most of the sites the last time we were here so we had a perfect (almost) lazy vacation consisting of beach and pool most of the time. The owner (Jan) and the property manager (Larry) were very responsive and great to work with. The reason why it was almost perfect is because of the pesky ant situation in the girls bathroom/bedroom. Larry was super responsive and attentive in trying to remedy the situation but it really needed pest control intervention which was scheduled to happen for after we left. They weren’t bothersome just an annoyance and I’m pretty sure Larry already has them taken care of. We would definitely come back and stay at this unit again and would also recommend it.
