About the Property
2 Bedrooms/ 2 Baths Oceanfront Paradise, Sleeps 4, Children Welcome, No Pets!
*INSTANT BOOK is AVAILABLE on reservations made more than 10 days in advance.*
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!

CANCELLATION POLICY and INTERNATIONAL SURCHARGE FEES
Credit Card - International Surcharge Fees
International Travelers will have international tax/surcharge fees withheld from security deposit. For example: credit card processing for VRBO users in United States is 2.9%; international tax/surcharge fees are an additional 2% totaling 4.9%. Guests using international credit card will have 2% of total credit card amount charged with-held from refundable security deposit. No charge on domestic (US cards) regular 2.9%; charge on international tax fee only.
Our formal cancellation policy is strict - there are NO refunds. Reservations cancelled 60 or more days prior to arrival can have deposit applied to another stay within one year of original arrival date. Cancellations less than 60 days have NO REFUND.
On an informal note, we understand that the unexpected can happen and would do our best to rebook any cancelled nights/days and try to offer a corresponding refund.
Guests agree to honor all details in RENTAL AGREEMENT upon payment for this rental.
Security Deposit Refunds are set to automatically refund within 7-14 days of check-out. Housekeeper will supply information of damage and corresponding receipts if and when necessary. We're lucky that this rarely occurs!
Cleaning & Guest Supply Fee - this covers departure out-cleaning & tax fee for housekeeper AND it also covers one time stocking for paper towels, toilet paper, soaps (laundry, dishwasher, dish, hand, bath), plastic wrap, garbage bags, baggies, glass cleaner, dryer sheets, etc. so that guests do not need to purchase these items independently.
Bed Configuration Change Fee - We are happy to request a bed re-configuration from twins to king in the second bedroom but this does require two people to do and incurs an extra fee one time fee ($30). Please ask if you have any questions...fee will be sent via 'Add Payment' on VRBO.

Year Purchased: 2008
About the owner: I love to travel and I love Kona! I also enjoy working with people and helping them to explore and discover this magical big island and have the best visit possible. I feel strongly that if I can't do it right - I simply shouldn't do it. My lovely housekeeper/property manager, Jeri, feels the same way. We're a dynamite team!
Why the Owner Chose Keauhou, Kahaluu-Keauhou, HI, USA:
I fell in love with the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club in 2003, returning in 2005 and purchasing our first townhouse in 2006. I networked with the owner of this (2nd) unit for 2 years prior to experiencing the good fortune of having the opportunity to purchase it. It's a gorgeous and exceptional unit (much like our first). It's less than 30 feet to the surf, it's an end unit surrounded by grass, shrubs AND, best of all, it's got oceanfront views from EVERYWHERE in the unit except one bedroom and one bathroom. The view from the master bedroom is better than any other unit I've ever stayed in!! Also, parking is 20 feet from front door, there's a beach with turtles outside your back door and an ancient heiau on the beach!! An exceptional find anywhere and a delight to share with guests! Multiple times each and every day I look out the window/s and thank my lucky stars for being so blessed. It's a wonderful place.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
This is an end unit; it has a delightful grassy back yard that is really just yours when you're there - a beach that you can be walking on within two minutes OR a wonderful pool two minutes the other direction. The unit is furnished simply so you can make it your own when you're there - no do-dads, etc...but everything you need to enjoy a home away from home is at your fingertips. We love our home away from home and do everything we can to make sure YOU do, too. And, we've been exceptionally lucky to enjoy guests that visit repeatedly and guests that just appreciate our property and take good care of it in our stead. We'd love to share it with you so you can feel the magic of this wonderful place. Aloha!
