About Mike Watson

We fell in love with the Big Island back in 1998 and now have three 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 windy weather or expensive nightly room rate. We love it and hope to spend our retirement here someday.

Beautiful unit in a peaceful and well maintained complex.

This was a relaxing and perfect place to stay with easy and convenient check in and check out, a friendly and highly informative owner, and beautiful ocean views from both the living room and master bedroom. The rooms were generously sized with tasteful island décor. The unit includes all necessary appliances and more than enough space to fully relax while staying on the island; so much nicer than staying in a resort hotel room.

The complex itself is located ocean front with multiple tennis courts, a pool, as well as areas for BBQ and outdoor entertaining. It also has more than an ample amount of visitor parking. The complex is also a short walk from the Keauhou Shopping Center that contains multiple dining options, a grocery store, a Longs Drugs, movie theatre, and multiple other small shops. The complex is a short drive to Kailua Kona and the airport as well as the Wal-Mart and Costco.

Overall this was a wonderful place to stay and I would definitely book this unit again if/when I return to this island.

An absolutely wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

Michelle has thought of every possible detail to make your stay exceptionally comfortable. I think her cottage has more amenities than our home! Our only regret is not staying long enough stay to take advantage of all the goodies.

Michelle’s cottage was the first of four VRBO’s we used on our trip. She was kind enough to see us off our last day even though we left at 6am. I told her that she set the bar very high for the upcoming VRBO’s which turned out to be very true. We stayed at nice VRBO’s on the big island and Kauai, but nothing compared to Michelle’s in terms of comfort, cleanliness, provisions and her outstanding hospitality.

I can’t begin to offer enough praise or appreciation for making our stay so enjoyable. If we make it back to Oahu, we will definitely stay here again. Michelle is a fabulous host and it is obvious that she takes a lot of pride in ensuring your stay is the best it can be! Mahalo Michelle and much aloha to you and your family!!

Awesome place to stay

  • 5 of 5

The condo was exactly as the pictures. It was spacious, well appointed and maintained. Close to everything we needed. The owners provide a ton of knowledge of the area, sights and places to go. We could not have asked for more. We would highly recommend this unit.

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
