Overview

About the property

This oceanfront townhouse will easily and comfortably accommodate four guests.

Hawaii Tax ID: W-40905868-01

*INSTANT BOOK is AVAILABLE on reservations made more than 10 days in advance.*

Enjoy oceanfront views from your living room, kitchen, oceanfront bedroom and upstairs bathroom or while reading a book or enjoying a cool drink on your lanai. They don't allow units to be built this close to the ocean anymore - you can actually see turtles nibbling on the rocks or the yellow tangs in the aquamarine surf from your oceanfront bedroom. We supply everything you need indoors, designated parking 35 feet from front door, and this lovely 15+ acre complex boasts a newly refinished pool & deck area that's perfect for all ages AND three lovely and newly resurfaced tennis courts for which our guests can play for free. We're also less than 1/2 mile from world class snorkeling (Kahalu'u Beach Park; aka Snorkel or Turtle Beach) and less than 1/2 mile from the Keauhou Shopping Center where you'll find groceries, restaurants, medical care, theatre, drug stores and more. It's really perfectly wonderful!! Also, a complete kitchen remodel was just done in September 2016 so everything is brand new! (Pictures coming soon.) Still, our rates are set to entice those who might not normally budget for oceanfront. It's lovely and sweet!

Comparable refurbished and remodeled units run $25-$40 more per night during low season and $50-$75 more per night during Winter months. (See 145210 and 253989). This is a nice deal!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed in Trip Advisor on May 6, 2013





My husband and I with grandson Emilio had a most wonderful holiday at Kona, Hawaii. Staying at townhouse # 198 was wonderful. It is a very well situated unit. The ocean is not more than 25 feet away. Sitting out on the rear deck is a real pleasure. There was a beautiful plumeria tree which was in full bloom.

The view of the sun going down each night is truly wonderful. We even saw a whale in the distance. We loved to listen to the waves coming in and crashing on the rocks.



This unit is very well equipped with large screen TV/ cable, washer/dryer etc. As well the kitchen is well stocked up with everything needed. We appreciated having 2 bedrooms upstairs with a full bathroom. There is also a full bathroom downstairs.



My husband and I especially appreciated the warm welcome from Sandy & Jerry.



The complex itself is very well kept and includes a large outdoor pool.



We would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to have a restful holiday.

Our personal Shang-ra-la

  • 5 of 5

We think that the fact that we have returned three times after our initial stay should tell anyone how we treasure this place. It has all that is advertised and if you investigate it has more. For instance we discovered petroglyphs on the lava tide pools when the tide was out. We watched local fishermen with their nets and of course, the natural beauty of the location, all from our lanai. The only warning is that it can get warm if the trade winds aren't blowing. Sandy, we'll be back. Thank you for your considerate hospitality.

You can't beat a beach in the backyard

  • 5 of 5

We needed a one-day, last minute rental to wind up a wonderful week on the big island, and this was the perfect solution. We were able to swim and still get cleaned up before our red-eye flight to the mainland. Sandy was very helpful and easy to work with. We loved being able to walk out the back door right onto our own private beach. The rental was clean and comfortable, although we mainly just used the bathroom and living room. Parking was easy and the resort area was nice and quiet. Thanks Sandy for helping us enjoy every last minute of our trip!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Susan: Thank you for being so gracious and a pleasure to make an exception for. This is the first time we've done a 1/2 day rental but you were so nice that it totally felt appreciated and worthwhile. Thanks for helping to keep the expense down so that it was mostly worthwhile for both of us as well. I'd like someone to do the same for me given similar circumstances and I'd be a great 1/2 day guest like you!! I do hope we might see you for a bit longer on future trip...we are right on a beach! Thanks again, Susan! Sandy K.

Not Up To VRBO Standards,Disappointing Condo

  • 1 of 5

The location is the best feature. We've stayed in the islands before and understand the tropical elements, but this unit was infested. We faithfully followed the owners directions: to do the dishes immediately, never leave food out, wipe the sinks. We sprayed with the provided propellant. But, everyday the little bugs were all over the stove, in the microwave , counter tops and in the drawers. The ants were a problem too. The worst was finding the giant spider upstairs in the bedroom closet. It was as big as my hand. It must have crawled in through the hole under the bathroom sink. The beach chairs were rusty. The beach towels were worn out. Our problem is that this unit didn't provide any inventory to list household items that were supposed to be provided, For example, there were only 2 wine glasses to begin with but later the housekeeper charged us for the "missing" glasses. We were also charged for other items such as glass dishes and a mattress cover the housekeeper claimed were missing or damaged. With no inventory, we had no way to prove otherwise. We did pay cash to replace some damaged sheets. Since it was New Year's, we left a big tip for the housekeeper and manager too. We left the unit immaculate and followed all the instructions, but did not received back any deposit. Aloha.

Loved this beautiful little spot.

  • 5 of 5

Loved having the ocean waves breaking right outside our window every night! Everything was great and convenient. There is no a/c but we were very comfortable sleeping with a fan at night. Thank you so much for a great experience!!

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.
