Fairways at Mauna Lani 1305

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Staying in Unit 1602 and cannot stress how lovely this unit is. Everything we needed was here and the location was wonderful. The Fairways at Mauna Lani is always our favourite choice when staying on the Big Island of Hawaii.

It’s the best vacation rental (including Airbnb & HomeAway) I have ever had! The location is good. It’s within walking distance to shops and restaurants at Mauna Lani and also within short driving distance to Queen’s & King’s market at Waikoloa. My favorite part is the private beach club which is also about 5min drive. It’s a beautiful white sand beach good for snorkeling! Although I didn’t see a turtle, but I was able to find some small fishes around the reefs. The whole community is very quiet and the two-bedroom unit I stayed at is well decorated and provided good enough supplies for one week stay. Read the condo rules especially the departure part as it requires some laundry work to be done before checkout. Overall it was a very nice stay and I would highly recommend to my friends/family.

We stayed at unit 1701 2 weeks ago and it was awesome. Recently redone including gourmet kitchen. 1300 sq. ft. sleeps 6 and has a pool, private beach and spa / health club. Definitely going back next year.

We have always vacationed once a year in Hawaii and this last trip we stayed at the Fairways at Mauna Lani. The unit we choose based on VRBO was #1701 which was totally upgraded and completely stocked including gourmet kitchen.2br / 2ba with about 1300sq. ft. Sleeps up to 6 They have a private beach which is great and near all the high end shops, restaurants, golf, tennis etc. Also thos part of the island is much less touristy and has more beaches and sunshine than down in Kona. Also no vog. Go to the VRBO site and check out listing 1164864. The best of the best !!!!!!!!!!

My favorite things? Walking distance to the beach....beautiful sandy beach, swimming lagoon, snorkeling, and beach walk. The units are lovely. Granite, tile, big master bathroom, updated appliances, 2br 2ba has tall 2 story ceilings. Get to know the layout of each building so you don't end up staring at someone else's lanai or bedroom. There are a few very private units. I don't like my bedroom to look at someone else's bedroom...always have to keep the shades closed...I want to see the outside when I'm in Hawaii. Like a big Lanai? Stay away from the 2 br 2.5 ba...the lanai's are not big. The 2br 2ba has a big lanai with nice koa wood posts. I think the 3 br does too. We've stayed at the Fairways a few times and keep coming back. It is laid back and beautiful. I saw a review that said there was nothing going on at the pool...they didn't like that....hahahaha....um, soooo that's what I love. The pool is rarely full of screaming kids peeing in it. :) Don't get me wrong...kids are there...it's just not a mad house of rowdy kids who's mom's just want a break (and likely rightfully so). It is paradise...a gem...don't tell anyone. :)

10 minute walk to either the Fairmont Orchid or the excellent grocery store. 12 minute walk to the Fairmont beach or 30 minute walk to the Beach Club. This is the most densely built complex at Mauna Lani and as such is noisy. Whether it's the clatter of dishes, conversation, people smoking, etc. it can be obnoxious. We have stayed in three other complexes here, always winter season, and never had such a noise problem. The condominium is nicely furnished albeit a really uncomfortable pillow top bed. The owners supplied great starters like dish soap, shampoo, etc. This is a two bedroom unit and the living room does not open to a lanai making quarters cramped and restricting lounge chairs to the upstairs lanai. The outdoor grill is great for making simple fish dinners (buy your fish at Da Fish House...super fresh!). We will return to Mauna Lani (until it gets to be as bad/busy as Waikoloa) but it will be at Golf Villas or Islands.

Great. Rental condo development. Quiet, access to Mauna Lani beach club. Within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Pool area with hot tub. Mellow area with plenty of lounge chairs. Great weather.

My wife really hunted for Kona condos, we are glad we found the Fairways. The condo is very nice, all the amenities. Beautifully furnished, plenty of beach gear. Private beach, groceries close by. We're happy here. My only complaint is the bathrooms, set for low water use. That means you have to flush the toilet 3 times, use lots of water. We are almost an hour from downtown, so we plan our days accordingly. That's a drawback. Staying here is overall great. We would do this again.

At first I thought there was no beach access but then realized there's a private beach club. You have to drive to get there but it is great there. Good snorkelling. Cindos are awesome for families. Spacious and lots of amenities like outdoor BBQ, pool, etc.

Loved our unit! Faced 12th fairway and semi private because other condos next to us empty. Very quiet even though big complex.The unit is very comfortable with two rooms and bath upstairs for college age kids and plenty of amenities in this unit! The owners had everything you need except food!! The bathrooms had hair dryer, shampoo & conditioner, body wash, liquid hand soap even air freshener. The kitchen was well stocked & organized - two coffee systems Keurig and drip with filters and sampling for pod coffee, pots, pans, all sizes of bowl, plates and glassware and had spices, sugar, flour, vinegar & oils plus all paper products & soap for sink & dishes and soap for clothes in laundry room. Garage had Tommy Bahamas beach chairs, boogie boards, two sizes of coolers!! Didn't use lanai much doesn't face sun and we were here in December. Only two chairs not enough room for the four of us. Has what looks like great BBQ area but didn't get a chance to use that either. Community area- unheated pool, small workout room and hot tub just pathways away. Well-lit because parking is not in garage but steps away. Plenty of extras make this a great VRBO #639617 believe me we rented one in July in OBX that we had to buy everything including toilet paper! Great location to shops, restaurants we drove to volcano, sailing, swimming with dolphins and to Kailua Kona several times. Highly recommended!
