About Mike Watson

We fell in love with the Big Island back in 1998 and now have four condo's on the Big Island. We enjoy fixing them up and take pride in ensuring they are very well maintained, clean and well stocked - just like our own home!

Mike Watson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mike Watson chose Keauhou

The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club offers complete privacy, quietness and secuirty. It is on over 17 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. We like to stay active and enjoy the tennis, swimming and snorkeling on offer.

What makes this condo unique

This unit is on the ground floor and has no stairs to climb. It has every imaginable feature one could want. The granite and Italian tile make it comprable to the $695 per night rooms up in Waikola - but without the wind or expensive nightly room rate. We love it and hope to spend our retirement here someday.

This was a nice condo and in a good location.

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed our stay however we were not prepared for the lack of air conditioning along with the heat of July. I now understand that air conditioning is not common in Hawaii, but it might be something to mention in the description. Everything else about the condo was great - the sunsets were amazing!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for taking the time to write a review of our beautiful deluxe two bedroom two bath direct ocean front condo. I am very sorry if you thought the condo had air conditioning. Our ad is clear that there is no air conditioning. In fact none of the condo's at the Surf and Racquet Club have air conditioning. You typically do not need air conditioning as you are only 30 feet from the water and if you open the lanai doors in the bedrooms, living room and turn on the ceiling fans you get great air flow circulation that keeps the condo cool and fresh. You must have been to condo during a week of extreme heat as no guest has ever mentioned this is the 5 years we have been renting out the condo. Anyway we hope you enjoyed some of the amenities of the condo and the facilities at the Racquet Club with it huge pool, 3 new tennis courts, volleyball, several BBQ's and a 18 hole golf course right around the corner. Mahalo, Mike Watson

The perfect home base for your Hawaii Vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We shoot underwater video, and travel to many great tropical locals. When possible we always look for a nice comfortable condo that is ideally located to support our activities. This one has been one of the best for many reasons!

It is beautiful, and fully stocked with the things you don't realize you need until you don't have them. It's very large, and comfortable, and the lanai is perfect for pupu time with the appropriate drinks, and sunset over the water.

The property is well-cared for and located in just the right area for many of your activities. Don't waste time and money with a hotel, this is the way to visit Hawaii!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your comments. Glad you found the condo comfortable. Very sorry to hear about the guests in the unit above. We do have a site manager at the Racquet Club who is good about keeping things quiet, so next time please do not hesitate to contact him. Mahalo and hope to see you again at the condo. Mike

Great condo!

  • 5 of 5

We traveled with our 2 kids and stayed for 9 nights. The condo had everything we needed (except a tea pot!). The beds were comfortable and it was great to have a washer/dryer in the unit to clean the beach towels etc. Nothing was nicer than coming back at the end of the day and sitting on the lanai with a glass of wine, listen to the waves crash on the rocks and watch the sun set. Very quiet complex, beautiful grounds, great pool and an easy walk to a great snorkeling beach! Mike left sent us a plethora of great information on places to go and restaurants to eat and there was a nice selection of resource books in the unit as well. We found this incredibly useful.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your nice feedback about the condo and your visit. I spoke to my cleaner and she indicated the tea kettle we had was burned and she had to throw it away. She indicated it looked like the guests are decided to heat some water without putting water in the tea kettle! Anyway, I have requested that a new tea kettle be placed in the condo so it will be there for your next visit. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Wonderful property!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here for a week in March 2017 and I just cannot really emphasize how much we enjoyed the property overall. The unit was spotless on our check-in and the location was perfect for what we wanted to accomplish. Everyone said to avoid Ali'i drive due to the traffic noise but I'm here to tell you, we heard not a single thing except the waves crashing on the shoreline. On our first day we spent hours watching the whales breach right off the property; a first for me on any of my trips to the islands. Should we ever make the trip to the big island again, I'll check to see if this unit is available first!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for taking the time to review our property at the Surf and Racquet Club. We take great pride in providing clean and trouble free accommodations As stated the condo sits between the 13th hole of the Kona Country Club and the ocean. So the only noise you will ever hear is the sound of the ocean or a golfer celebrating on the green. We hope to see you again at the condo. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Lovely vacation home.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our recent vacation at Mike & Katrina's condo at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club.

We like a nice place on vacation , this condo exceeded our expectations. Lots of room, nice comfortable furnishings, pretty art work and decor items. very nice amenities, we felt very much at home here.

The owners provided soaps, detergents, trash bags , spices and seasonings in the kitchen, and beach equipment...and other little touches that are very thoughtful and make it a home away from home. Although we didn't do any cooking other than easy breakfast and lunch the kitchen is large with all the large and small appliances anyone could want , bathrooms have lots of space for a family. The lanai is very large and very nice, great place to start the day, wonderful sunsets, a terrific walkway along the ocean .

Keauhou Kona surf and racquet club is very well maintained, lovely landscaping, great pool. They preserved old Hawaiian archeological sites on the property , very interesting to read the descriptions.

The big island is large, we felt this South Kona location was an easy drive to most of the things people want to see, very diverse landscape.We enjoyed the drive to Punalu'u black sand beach, saw the green turtles resting on the sand, the town has a very nice bakery for snacks and sandwiches.

Our favorite breakfast place is the Daylight Mind Cafe in Kona....worth a visit !

Thank you for making the booking process simple Mike and Katrina...we will be in touch for next spring

Aloha and Mahalo
