***Lounge*** Greet the day with freshly brewed Kona coffee, and watch the sunrise over the 14,000-ft. Mauna Kea from the main floor lanai and upstairs lanais. Relax on the living room’s Tahitian style sectional and download a new novel with our free WiFi. Catch the big game, enjoy a Netflix movie on the 40' Smart, flat screen HDTV, or just melt away while listening to one of many Hawaiian music CDs.

The wrap-around main floor lanai is complete with a Viking propane gas BBQ, wet bar, granite countertop, elegant resin wicker dining and conversation furniture, and area rugs for your comfort. The Viking BBQ with quality tools is easy to use. Imagine firing up a Hawaiian BBQ for 'al fresco' dining or relaxing on the love seat, reading a book and sipping a Mai Tai while taking in breathtaking views of the mountains, gardens and beautiful pools!

***Dine*** The fully-equipped gourmet kitchen has everything you need - and a few things you didn’t even think you needed - to make preparing meals a breeze. The kitchen is accented with sleek granite countertops, and features top of the line GE Profile appliances. You will be amazed at how well-stocked and well-maintained the kitchen is, with an assortment of gadgets and small appliances.

The gathering height table and dining room chairs sit on a beautiful, Hawaiian inspired floral wool area rug, which sets the tropical mood. Place mats, chargers and dinner napkins complete the glass-covered table, which seats four guests comfortably and in style. We provide specialty glassware, serving dishes and utensils for everything from a pizza party to Thanksgiving dinner.

Prefer to dine “al fresco?” The glass dining table on our wrap-around, main floor lanai can seat four. If you prefer to snack by the pool or join the owners for a potluck dinners at the pavilion, there are plenty of outdoor dishes, glassware, cutlery and serving dishes for safe, poolside gatherings.

***Sleep*** The roomy, upstairs master bedroom features a Cal king 4 poster bed with rich bedding and a tropical-inspired ceiling fan to circulate the breeze from the cool trade winds. Doze off while watching the 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player, or listen to the gentle sounds of Hawaiian music. Privacy blinds, luxury linens and a new, ultra-comfortable, hypo-allergenic bed means sweet dreams await. Step out on to the private lanai and watch the sunrise while sipping your first cup of Kona coffee. Relax on the comfortable chairs with ottomans, watch the sun rise over towering Mauna Kea or take in the amazing views of the Kohala mountains and coastline.

The spa-like master bathroom features tile floors, oversized closet with hangers, a spacious, glass-enclosed shower, private water closet and a large, double vanity with granite countertops. A full-size jetted tub is ideal for soaking after a day of sightseeing, golfing, swimming or just relaxing on the beach.

The main floor bedroom, decorated in a serene tropical coconut palm motif, features a new organic hypo-allergenic queen bed, ceiling fan and a 26' LCD flat screen HDTV w/DVD player. The adjacent main floor bathroom has tile flooring, a single vanity with granite countertop, and a tub with a shower and sliding glass doors.

The two bedrooms are located on separate floors and offer the ultimate in privacy. Both bedrooms feature WiFi, alarm clocks, ironing boards and irons. Both bathrooms are stocked with premium Hawaiian bath products, 100% white cotton towels, hair dryers, magnifying mirrors and spa-like extras.

About the host

We are Richard Waugh and Nina Nychyporuk. We live in Vancouver, British Columbia and are avid travellers. Nina is from northern Manitoba while Richard is from Chicago. Richard’s family moved to Edmonton, Alberta in the 70’s and we met in Kenora, Ontario. We eventually made our way to the lower mainland of British Columbia in 1999. Richard has a background in the banking, auditing and regulatory industries while Nina is a Human Resources Consultant. Having grown up in northern climates we spend all our vacation time traveling to sun destinations to escape the cold and rain (and sometimes snow). We discovered the Hawaiian islands during a cruise in 2005 and in 2008 when we looked to invest in a vacation home Hawaii was the logical choice for us. It was a dream come true when we purchased our vacation home at the Mauna Lani Resort. With each visit we feel more and more a part of the 'aloha' spirit and community. In our spare time we enjoy keeping fit with yoga, group cycling and gym work-outs. We also enjoy reading and spending relaxing days on our patio or at the beach and ending the day with a happy hour. Why did we choose our Property? We chose the Mauna Lani Resort because of the fabulous beaches and the abundance of sunshine on the South Kohala coast (an attractive feature for those who live in a coastal rain forest!). The private beach club, a fabulous fitness centre and spa, and a local supermarket are all within a friendly and welcoming community. Although we are not avid golfers, our guests could not be more impressed with the two championship golf courses within the resort. When we toured the Kulalani resort we fell in love with Kulalani right away because it felt immediately like home. Our villa is spacious and well laid out. The private amenities (2 pools, 2 hot tubs and a fitness centre) at Kulalani are among the best that Mauna Lani has to offer! How long have we been hosting? We made our home available as a vacation rental in the fall of 2009. Since then we have established a superb track record as attentive and responsive hosts and in providing a quality well-stocked home. Don’t take our word for it, read our many, many five star reviews on our VRBO Listing at www.vrbo.com/257177. We take great pride in our vacation home and it shows. Always fresh and always immaculate; our poolside location can’t be beat. It is our hope that at Morning Glory Our Sunrise Villa (Kulalani 2006) you will escape to a relaxing but fun filled vacation. Some say life is good … at Kulalani 2006 we think life is pretty great. We are delighted to be your hosts during your stay on the Big Island of Hawaii.
