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 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.
