Property description

If you’re looking for the perfect spot in Kona for your Big Island vacation, you’ve found it with our owner-rented home in the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club. Our 3 bed – 3 bath condo provides guests three private sleeping areas and is ideal for families or up to 3 couples. The condo is centrally located in Kona just 10 minutes from Kailua and 20 minutes from the Keahole International Airport (KOA) in the Keauhou Resort area. Together, this location, the Kona Surf and Racquet Club complex and our upgraded unit offers one of the best vacation experiences on the Big Island.

KING’S CONDO
We’re very proud of our condo and hope your vacation experience will be fit for a King!

Our two story third floor property has been tastefully renovated and furnished. The condo has wood floors throughout the living area, granite kitchen countertops and new appliances. There are three California King beds to provide ample space for guests of any size and the second floor suite with its own bath, TV, office area and two fans gives a larger group plenty of space to spread out. High speed wireless internet, cable TV and Hawaiian music on the stereo are standard as well.

There are eight large overhead fans to keep you cool on the warmest afternoons and the area is designed for good airflow with vaulted ceilings throughout. Of course, the lanai will provide the “coolest” area of all and has electric screens to block the indirect afternoon sun as well as an overhead fan.

We’ve also equipped the condo with everything you need for a great time including a full, well equipped kitchen, refrigerator with an automatic ice maker, dishwasher, tennis gear, snorkel equipment, beach chairs, boogie boards and shore fishing gear.

If you’d like some help with what to do in the area, we’d be happy to provide a list of our favorite things to do on the Big Island.

KEAUHOU KONA SURF AND RACQUET CLUB
Lying on the ocean side of Alii Drive, the KKSRC is a gated complex consisting of oceanfront, fairway and garden condominiums. Our unit has a beautiful garden view with a lot of privacy relative to many others in the area. All units have oceanfront access providing an opportunity to stroll along the coast, fish or watch beautiful sunsets just 150 steps from the unit. The shoreline also provides good elevation to watch the whales on their annual visit to the islands during the winter months.

Although much of the waterfront is lava, there is easy walking access to a sand beach with tide pools just north of the resort area and the reef just off shore provides good shore fishing opportunities as well. The resort is directly on the ocean and as all shoreline in Hawaii is public you will have the same access to the beach and shoreline as those renting “oceanfront” units so you’ll feel free to walk anywhere on the grounds or the adjacent properties to the north where an archeological project is taking place.

At the center of the resort complex are three lighted tennis courts, a large pool and a covered pavilion while 3 common grilling areas are provided around the grounds. The tennis courts are guest-managed on a first come first served basis and basic tennis equipment is available in the unit. We’ve rarely seen all three courts in use at the same time and night tennis is both cooler (temperature) and cooler (more fun). Adjacent to the tennis courts is a large L-shaped pool with one leg of the L built for small children and the other for swimming. Showers and restrooms are available poolside.

For golfers, the complex is perfectly situated between the ocean and the Kona Country Club, famous for 36 holes of championship golf winding between the ocean and nearby mountains.

KEAUHOU AREA
Keauhou rests peacefully at the southern end of Alii Drive. In Hawaiian, Alii means King or Chief, and for centuries this area was home to native Hawaiian kings seeking peace, beauty and respite. Alii Drive is the focus for activity in Kailua, just 5 miles north, but the action gets more relaxed as you work your way to the south end. Less than a mile away is King Kamehameha III Ave, a road that links Alii Drive to the mountain highway, allowing you quick access to your best routes either south or north along the Kona coast.

Within two miles of the KKSRC, you can find an amazing number of things to do. In addition to golf, off-site to the north, you can snorkel, swim, take a surfing lesson, kayak or just lay on the beach at the famous Kahalu’u Beach Park. It is known as one of the best and most protected snorkeling areas on the island and it’s less than a mile from KKSRC. Continuing north along Alii, there are a number of beach parks, each with its own unique features.

Going south, peaceful Keauhou Bay has a wonderful swimming and picnic area in addition to the local canoe club headquarters. There are only a few fishing charters that work out of this bay and we can help you make a contact with them if you’re interested in going after the big ones. Beyond the bay is a sacred Hawaiian area that is barren except for a foot trail that you can walk. You’ll see hand-built rock walls dating back more than 100 years and the occasional offering…right alongside a rock climber or cliff diver.
Finally, within walking distance, the Keauhou Shopping Center provides a great place to pick up your groceries, locally caught fish, sunscreen, beer and the flip-flops you left at home. There is also a movie theatre and a number of excellent restaurants. There is even a farmers market on Sunday with live music and many local products for sale.

Beyond the two-mile radius, the Kona coast offers a tremendous diversity of things to do. You might visit a Kona Coffee Farm, take a short tour and taste coffee made from peaberry, snorkel at the location where Captain Cook died in 1779, hike the mountains and shoreline along marked (and unmarked) trails, run on Alii drive (there are markers at each HALF mile), shore fish or charter a boat to catch a fish potentially larger than your rental car, walk to (nearly) deserted beaches, or sample the nightlife in Kailua town.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: Bob and I are native Minnesotans and can really appreciate the warmth and beauty of the Big Island in the dead of winter. The surprise for us was how wonderful it is during the rest of the year as well. The Big Island is our favorite vacation spot and we really enjoy providing our home to others so they can fall in love with it too! Our goal in sharing our home is for you to have an experience you'll remember for the rest of your lives. We will gladly help you with activity ideas, local information and our favorite things to do so feel free to ask. Aloha and Mahalo!

Why the Owner Chose Keauhou, Kahaluu-Keauhou, HI, USA:
We have vacationed on the Big Island of Hawaii for many years and had been especially happy when we stayed in Keauhou. We decided to make it our permanent vacation destination and share it with you. We live in Minnesota and particularly enjoy the 110 degree temperature difference between Keauhou and St. Paul in January.
