Hale O' Honu'ea at the Fairways Mauna Lani: 2+br Perfect For Families, Snowbirds. 2 story Town home with 2 Lanais in a Lush Tropical Setting
Hale O' Honu'ea: Stay in this beautifully furnished 2 bedroom townhome, with polished granite and stainless steel gourmet kitchen, 2 1/2 baths and 1 car garage and relax in over 1600 square feet of indoor living in a spacious open layout.

The tranquil Lanai off the main floor dining area includes a wet bar, Viking grill/rotisserie and outdoor dining seating for 6, as well as a smaller outdoor "coffee nook" with seating for two.

The floor plan here is ideal for privacy and comfort with both bedrooms upstairs away from the main living area and on far ends of the home, each with an ensuite full bathroom. You can feel safe with your family all sleeping upstairs, but you can also enjoy privacy from each other as the master and guest suite are on opposite ends of the upstairs hallway.

The master suite includes a den sitting area, ensuite with jacuzzi tub and private lanai that together with the downstairs lanai extends the living space to over 2000 square feet. Enjoy the view of the naturalized golf course landscaping and the 11th green of the north course in the distance. The daybed in the den converts to a twin or king size bed for the 5th guest if needed.

Your stay at Hale O' Honu'ea includes a gate pass to owners parking at the semi-private Beach Club with ocean-side restaurant, coral reef snorkeling and white sand beach. Covered cabanas and sunbathing chairs are on the beach for guests of property owners only, so all you need to bring are the towels, boogie boards and sand toys that we provide and your sunblock!

Water enthusiasts can rent stand-up paddle boards, surf boards, outriggers and other equipment adjacent to the beach or even join a snorkel, whale-watch (in season), scuba dive, or sunset cruise.

Our community, the Fairways: Just 20 minutes north of Kona Airport in the beautiful Mauna Lani Resort and ideally situated between the Fairmont Orchid Hotel and the Shops of Mauna Lani and the Mauna Lani Bay Hotel. The Fairways is an impeccably maintained luxury gated community on over 20 acres adjacent to the Francis H. Brown North Golf course, one of two championship golf courses within Mauna Lani (your stay includes discounted guest golf rates at both).

Amenities at the Fairways include a large BBQ pavilion, large and luxurious free form swimming pool, spa, waterfalls, and a fitness center with a/c.

Our resort, Mauna Lani: Within Mauna Lani you can explore the lesser known 49 Black Sand Beach or one of the five white sand beaches and waterfront, the historic petroglyphs and ancient fish ponds, and enjoy the free cultural activities offered at the Shops of Mauna Lani. Meet turtles swimming in the ocean, sunning on the rocks or those that are part of the Mauna Lani honu preservation program.

Enjoy discounted guest rates at both the North and South Frances H. I'i Brown Golf Courses.

Exploring beyond Mauna Lani? We have provided cooler bags, beach chairs and guide books (and are happy to give you more ideas if you ask).

So much of what we love about Hawaii is the natural untouched beauty of the island. Hawaii gets most of its electricity from oil-fired power plants, and all the oil has to be imported. We've installed solar panels to lower our reliance on oil imports and in hopes that this small contribution will help reduce our carbon footprint on our paradise.

This is a no-smoking, no-pet property.

The Fairways is zoned RM-4 and is a legal short-term vacation rental location. As required per Hawaii County Ordinance 2018-114, Hale O' Honu'ea is a registered short term vacation rental: STVR-19-351357.

We are an active family of 4 and we have been visiting the Hawaiian islands for years to escape the cold winters (and even the cool summers) of the Pacific Northwest. We are both competitive athletes and have done dozens of marathons and triathlons all over the world including Ironman distance races. In fact, we first found the Fairways at Mauna Lani racing the Honu 70.3.

We have 2 children and enjoy traveling anywhere we can enjoy good food, good weather, different cultures - and still play in the outdoors.

We found ourselves returning to Mauna Lani more than any place else in the tropics. What we love most about Mauna Lani is that it offers privacy away from the crowds elsewhere yet offers the convenience of close by restaurants and shops when you want them. It has beautiful calm waters for safe snorkeling, waves (when you want them) for surfing, and nature abounds with the turtles, coral reef, dolphin and whale sightings. There are miles of running and cycling right out the door.

We stayed at other properties within Mauna Lani but feel that the grounds, large free form pool, spa and location of the Fairways are the perfect combination of private yet convenient to the amenities of the rest of the resort as it is close enough to walk to the Fairmont Orchid and Shops of Mauna Lani.

We chose Hale O' Honu'ea because of all the floorplans we've stayed in Mauna Lani, it suits our family and friends the best. All bedrooms are upstairs which makes us feel safe; the bedrooms are on opposite ends of the townhome so they feel private; each has it's own ensuite bathroom for convenience; the open floor plan of the main living space and windows on the upper floor allow the island breeze to move through.

We've made updates to make it even more comfortable and hope that you will enjoy it as much as we do.

Our daughter named 'Hale O' Honu'ea', Home of the Hawksbill Turtle. In conjunction with Oahu's Sea Life Park, Mauna Lani Resort raises honu (the green sea turtle) releases them when mature, helping the comeback of honu. The native Hawksbill turtle, or Honu'ea, is more endangered and the Big Island is one of it's few nesting places. Our family hopes someday to see the Honu'ea frequenting the waters of Mauna Lani too.

We are transitioning to our condo to be more 'green'. We've installed ceiling fans and screens to enjoy the island breeze. We provide personal amenity dispensers that reduce plastic bottle waste of typical hotel 'travel size' products. We are converting to CFL and LED lighting. We've chosen BPA-free acrylics for outdoor drinkware. We provide environmentally responsible detergents and will continue to transition to like products throughout Hale O' Honu'ea. We've installed solar panels that reduce our reliance on oil-generated electricity. We admit that we have far to go, but we feel these small steps are all in the right direction to protect the natural beauty of this special place.
