Welcome to our vacation home at the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club (KKSRC) on the Kona/sunny-side of the Big Island of Hawaii.
We first visited Kona in 1999 and found the Surf & Racquet Club in 2003. We were hooked!
The oceanfront location is perfect! It's next to the ocean and a beach and less than ½ mile from Kahalu’u Beach Park and the Keauhou Shopping Center with it’s many stores and restaurants. (Kahalu'u Beach Park is also known as Turtle or Snorkel Beach.)
Kahalu’u Beach Park is our favorite snorkeling park in all of Hawaii. The fish and turtles are plentiful and there are bathrooms, parking, reasonably easy access in and out of this protected bay and visitors can rent beach or snorkel gear here, as well, if needed.
Our lovely townhouse has two bedrooms, two bathrooms and a fully equipped kitchen. Guests can choose to eat indoors at dining table or there's another table and chairs on our oceanfront lanai.
There are two TV's and wifi for indoor entertainment.
We also provide beach towels, cooler and there's usually a beach chair or two, an umbrella and a boogie board for guests to use.
The views when you enter this unit are breathtaking AND you get to enjoy those same views throughout the unit. The view from king/oceanfront bedroom upstairs is particularly stunning; you can watch and listen to the surf from the king bed and spot the yellow tang and turtles frolicking in the blue, aquamarine surf.
During the late spring and summer months you can even watch the sunsets from the bedroom – they’re straight out for your viewing pleasure.
Our décor is very simple and allows guests to easily move in and call the place their own. Most of the art work is from local artists and reflects the tropical beauty that is found throughout Hawaii. Travertine floors throughout keep feet clean and cool.
And, it’s easy to enjoy your own private back yard in this lovely end-unit with grass surrounding three sides. Also, there’s lush greenery between the yard and ocean so that children are protected by this natural barrier. Still, if you want to go down to the beach it’s a simple two minute walk to access path around neighboring building.
There are three sacred heiaus on our 15 + acre tropically landscaped property; several on and around beach and during low tide you can even find petroglyphs on the exposed rocks between tide pools. The property inland from beach and next to us is actually being transitioned into a cultural center park because of the richness of history in this area.
In the winter we enjoy additional sightings of the humpback whales and even witnessed an ever-so-rare-to-see birthing in March, 2015. Spinner dolphins can be seen along the coastline nearly every day and kayakers, tour boats and outrigger canoes paddle by pretty routinely.
And, whenever you feel more adventuresome it’s easy to get into the car and drive to hundreds of other lovely places on this big beautiful island. There’s world class beaches, boogie boarding and snorkeling, an active volcano, tropical rainforests, Kona coffee plantations, historic and sacred places and more. We’re still exploring this lovely place almost 20 years after our first visit.
The complex has a delightful swimming pool which is suitable for young and old alike. There’s 1-3 feet depths at shallow end of pool and then lengthwise it goes from 4 to 8 feet so you can easily get in some laps or just playfully float around.
If you like to play tennis then this is the place for you. Our recently resurfaced and lighted tennis courts are free for our guests and we even supply a few racquets. There’s a pro available if you want to schedule a lesson or two as well.
All in all – if you’re looking for a wonderful place in paradise – this is it!
