"I submitted a detailed review when we were here in 2013 (see submitted 2/17/13). This continues to be our favorite place to come on the Big Island. We have already reserved 51 days for Jan/Feb 2016. The owner continues to upgrade and improve the top floor unit of this condo. Last year we were treated to a remodeled kitchen that included lighting updates, new counters and sink, and an attractive backsplash. The location, large lanai which is very private, on deck barbeque, open beam ceilings, terrific pool and well stocked kitchen is why we keep coming back to Keauhou Punahele."

"What a lovely condo. Our family, ranging in ages between 90 to 17, thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The condo was open, well appointed, and very clean. With all the windows and fans, we did not miss AC and the fact that the condo is on the second floor meant we could leave windows open all day and night and feel completely safe. This condo is perfect for a large group and encourages socializing. We played games at the dinner table. The lanai was excellent for breakfast. The kitchen is well appointed and although we chose not to BBQ, the grill was available. The views are lovely and the birds were delightful but never an annoyance even in the morning. The three bathrooms made morning preparation stress free. The assigned parking spot was right by the stairs leading up to the condo. The one flight of stairs was no problem for our 90 year old. She took it easy going up and once in the condo bedrooms, bathrooms, kitchen, dining area, living room and lanai were all on the same floor. The spacious loft with its own bathroom was reached through a round staircase perfect for the teenagers need of privacy. The condo is located minutes away from beaches for swimming, snorkeling and sun bathing. Its location is great to enjoy all of the west side of the island especially Kona coffee area. The grocery store is conveniently nearby as are many businesses including a movie theater. The condo did have snorkel gear, water shoes, chairs, umbrellas and lots of towels. Since we were a large group we rented snorkel gear as well. A three minute drive over to the Sheraton Kona Resort took us to Rays on the Bay for dinner. The highlight was seeing manta rays come into the cove at night sometime after 9pm. The manta rays are easily seen from the bar area. We had dinner but clearly many people come just to see the manta rays, free of charge. It was a pleasure to work with Wayne, the owner. He responded to all questions and followed up to make sure we had no needs. The damage deposit was refunded promptly returned through a check in the mail. Without a doubt, we enjoyed our stay and would happily work with Wayne again. Aloha!"

"This condo is in a beautiful quiet neighborhood, conveniently located close to a small shopping area with a grocery store, drug store, post office, restaurants. It is close to downtown Kona without the noise and congestion. There is plenty of room for adult children and in-laws to have their own space! The lanai is spacious with a beautiful view and plenty of seating. I really appreciated the fully stocked kitchen. A full size washer and dryer was so nice and convenient. The condo has plenty of beach towels and other beach necessities such as umbrelllas, beach chairs, coolers, snorkel gear, noodles, boogie boards. We were provided with lists of local shopping, restaurants which was very helpful and the owners made us feel very welcome. The coffee pot cracked during our stay and was immediately replaced by the owner. The complex is also very well maintained with a beautiful clean pool area. Several times we were the only guests at the pool which was very enjoyable and relaxing. I would definately stay here again when we are on the big island and in fact, I planning my return before I left!"
