Overview

About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms (inclds Loft BR/Office) 2 Bath (Sleeps 7 without sofa beds!)

Expansive ocean views of Kona sunsets on the 18th tee of the Kona Country Club golf course (check their website for more info).

Owners nearby at Horseplay Equestrian Center.

Two bedrooms and a loft (with 4 additional beds). Our Country Club Villas home (#329) is spacious and quiet. The lanai offers a panoramic view, a large dining table and a private BBQ. This 3rd floor unit is just one flight up, and steps away from reserved off-street private parking.

Spectacular ocean views from the living room, master bedroom, lanai and kitchen. Our condo sleeps 6-8 people comfortably, without the hassle of a sofabed in the living room. You have two bedrooms downstairs (master has Cal King, guest has Queen) & two full baths (upgraded showers in both; no tubs).

Up the spiral staircase the spacious loft has additional sleeping with three twins available and a futon in the gaming nook (Flat screen TV, & XBox). There's also a tri-fold futon mat available for use if you want a child downstairs, as well as a pack-and-play and gate if you need to keep toddlers off the stairs.

Great for a romantic getaway, two or three couples, and families with children. This complex is an older gem with excellent management, where visitors return year after year. Many guests find that they have a pool (there are 3) all to themselves - when they're not at the beach! While the adults relax on the lanai or in the living room with their own entertainment the kids may play upstairs with the games, a separate flat screen TV w/DVD player, and 3 beds. Ceiling fans throughout enhance the pleasant Kona breezes.

In addition to the three pools (each with jacuzzi and ocean views - one just steps from this unit's entrance), there are also two tennis courts (also set up for pickle ball) for guest use. The property’s tropical landscaping is well maintained and quite inviting for morning and evening walks. (This area of Ali'i drive is very popular for jogging, biking & walking.)

You will find the kitchen fully equipped with stove, microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker/grinder... and the list goes on! We have provided a complete selection of quality pots, pans and utensils for both kitchen cooking and the barbecue, as well as dishware for a crowd. Bar stools are at the kitchen counter and a comfortable dining area for the whole family is on the lanai.

Within the condo there are games to share and books to read. We provide your beach towels, a beach umbrella, beach & tote bags, small coolers (and blue ice), beach chairs, boogie boards & a large assortment of masks, fins and snorkel equipment. We hope to keep your luxury vacation on a family-friendly budget!

Dolphins, Humpback whales, Manta Rays, Turtles and much much more can be seen quite nearby. (During the winter whale watching season you may see the whales right from your lanai!) If any of your party are certified divers or you'd like our recommendation for great snorkel (free or with tours) experiences, please ask. The water underworld is one of Kona's greatest assets, and likely the best in the state. (A copy of The Big Island Revealed is in the condo for your perusal, as well as many books on local lore and history.)

Grab your sunscreen and head off to enjoy your slice of paradise! A short walk or very short drive to Keauhou Bay: (ocean tours, kayaks, SUP board rentals) and Kahalu'u Beach Park (excellent snorkeling - home to many sea turtles - beginner friendly). Check out the comments for these locations online at Yelp!

The Keauhou Shopping Center (groceries, CVS/Long's, many restaurants - including sushi and pizza! - coffee shop, cinema & shopping) is a five minute walk. (Also check out the Keauhou Honu Express shuttle for more family transportation options.)

Wi-fi, broadband internet, cable & phone are of course included. Please, no pets or smoking allowed in unit. (Smoking is OK only in the designated outside area, near the entrance.)

About Cyndy DeMeter

Pat and Cyndy own Horseplay Equestrian Center, LLC - just a few miles south of the condo. Pat is an equine veterinarian and a Big Island resident since 1998. Cyndy moved to Kona in 1979, where she raised a family and has owned several businesses. She currently owns & manages Horseplay, boarding horses and teaching English riding.

Cyndy DeMeter purchased this condo in 2012

Why Cyndy DeMeter chose Keauhou

The Keauhou resort district offers some of the best access to ocean activities in Hawaii AND a location that is quieter and more private than Kona town. We have the pools, golf course, easy access to Keauhou Bay, Kahaluu Beach Park, Magic Sands (& more!) but never feel like we're in a densely populated resort area. It's GREAT!

The third floor enhances both the views and the tropical breezes, making it comfortable all year.

What makes this condo unique

We enjoy playing, cooking and dining with family. This property has it all: wear the kids and grand kids out at the beach and return to BBQ on your own spacious lanai! End the day with family games (many provided), reading or a movie (50 inch flat screen in the living room - multiplex cinema within walking distance).

We never tire of swimming (often alongside turtles!) and snorkeling at nearby Kahalu'u Beach. In our diverse island adventures our children (and grandchildren!) have learned the importance of protecting the reef and marine wildlife, so important to us all.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We had 12 days at this great condo for our family's end-of-summer vacation. With 3 teenagers, one of the bonuses was that when the adults wanted to relax & just enjoy the view and great lanai the kids could easily walk to Keauhou Bay: beach volleyball, ocean sport rentals, Stand Up Paddleboard, kayaks etc OR the shopping center (pizza, sushi, a great grocery store with all the interesting local foods as well as a deli). The hosts provided LOTS of beach equipment: we never rented snorkels, fins, boogie boards, etc!

At the south end of Ali'i Drive (Kona's ocean front street) it's quick & easy access to the highway that circumferences the whole island. The little town of Kainaliu (just 4 miles south) is quite fun for a shopping stroll and has some cute restaurants - plus live theater which we heard was quite good but didn't have the opportunity to attend. The theater building is an historical landmark - over 75 years old we were told!)

Amenities in the condo were great: good quality cookware etc, and a lanai table quite comfortable for our large group. (Actually there were a lot of kitchen "extras" we were surprised to find, having rented condos in other locations.)

The large flatscreen TV in the living area didn't get used a lot (because the activities, views and conversation kept us occupied), but some evenings the kids enjoyed the loft XBox and second flatscreen TV, without intruding on our peace & quiet below.

The whole experience was great for our family, and we recommend it highly!

spacious condo for the price

  • 5 of 5

My friends that stayed with me were surprised I could get such a nice place for such a great deal. The master bedroom is spacious with two sliding doors to the patio. The main ocean view is seen from the master bedroom/patio especially at sunset if you're using the grill (which we did). Only issue with that is it's in a dark corner and we had to use flashlights and the masterbedroom light to see if our meats were cooked, but if it's really an issue you could move the grill closer to the table.

The home provides snorkel gear, beach towels, and whatever is left behind (we left some beer and condiments) and having a washer dryer is great, but I did overpack for the trip.

Small ant problem in the kitchen but we just started putting everything in ziplock bags and by ants.... i mean tiny tiny light colors insects not the California ants I'm used to. Parking was right in front for the assigned parking and a visitor spot right behind it for our other vehicle. Down the road was a great snorkel beach and even farther down is a "boardwalk" type area.

It was wonderful when we didn't feel like eating out to stop by the walmart or Costco and be able to cook for our daily adventures. Highly recommend staying here. I would if we were visiting the big island again.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Belinda! I appreciate the comment on the BBQ area and realize I haven't been there at night when it's been in use. We'll get our handyman in to remedy that. I've spoken to our association management about the ants. They treat on a regular schedule but sounds like it needs more diligence. We hope to have you and your friends visit us on a future vacation!

Great place!

  • 5 of 5

Cyndy was so accommodating to our family, providing us with a high chair and a pack and play.

The condo is close the the grocery store and downtown Kona is about a 20 minute drive.

There are 3 pools, one is really close to the condo.

Overall, we had a great time here!

nice condo

  • 5 of 5

Our family (3 kids) had a great Spring Break on the big Island. The location of the condo was perfect, walking distance to supermarket and some restaurants and centrally located to all the sights on the Island. The condo was big enough for our family, great balcony with ok views, had enough light and fresh air, well equipped with good pots/pans/(beach)towels/utensils/tv/games etc and had good beds. The pools are small, but you'd wanna go snorkling in the sea anyway!! The beach stuff provided is limited, but Walmart is closeby ;))

Overall we were very happy!

Owner's Response: Hi Kim - Thank you for the review. I'm glad to hear your family had a wonderful vacation! I'd love to know what was lacking in the beach gear and see if I can remedy it for future guests. I thought there were snorkels & fins for almost every size, as well as the boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrella, reef shoes and flotation devices. I don't inventory after every guest, so maybe something has gone missing. I'm not certain you are able to respond in this format, but I'd love to hear from you. Aloha - Cyndy

Home Sweet Aloha

  • 5 of 5

From the unexpected welcome basket, the fabulous view, the fully furnished condo, and the abundant amenities (brochures, maps, binoculars), our month's (end of Jan. to end of Feb., 2017) stay in paradise was truly paradise.

Cyndy was always available and accommodating, always responsive, & always pleasant which we feel is important as vacation renters. We felt very much at home.

Another wonderful vacation in Kona, our second vacation at this condo. It was as wonderful

as the first year we stayed. The views are unsurpassed, it has a view of the golf course and a beautiful ocean view. We loved the Lanai, the sunsets and the early mornings were amazing.. It was great to have a barbeque on our private Lanai. The condo is well located and the 3 pools were

Thanks Cyndy, it was lovely.!
