About Tony Beliso
My name is Pat and my husband's name is Tony. We are recent retirees and enjoy traveling, tennis, cooking, etc. We grew up in a tropical country so we like the sun. We currently have a home in British Columbia, Canada ( my husband is Canadian and I am a U S citizen), and spend our time between BC and the U.S.
Tony Beliso purchased this Townhome in 2006
Why Tony Beliso chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
We both grew up in the Philippines where the climate is tropical so Hawaii was a natural fit. Why Kona? We like this island the best because of the variety of easily accessible outdoor activities year round. It is different from the big city life in that it is a very relaxing environment with a lot of history. Our town home is in a gated resort community ideally located in famous Alii Drive which is the main road leading to the shops and restaurants along the sea wall. We do not get the traffic noise of downtown Alii and yet close enough that a 15 minute drive will get us there. It also provides for a good jog downtown if one feels energetic enough. The Keauhou shopping center which includes a grocery store, movie theatre, drug store, restaurants, etc. is only a short 10 minute walk.
What makes this Townhome unique
Our home is a two-level, two-bedroom, two-bathroom town home. It is situated in a quite cul de sac in the complex with only a 1 or 2 minute walk to the beach along the path within the complex. Our complex has excellently maintained grounds which offers three tennis courts, a swimming pool, access to the beach which borders part of the area and provides one of the best sunsets, just bring along your lounging chair and enjoy the show. Our town home has been profesionally decorated in a quite cul de sac in the complex. We have a beautiful mural in the living room which accentuates the warm surroundings of its location.

We have been to Kona several times before and always tried to stay close to town for convenience / walking distance. With a well appointed shopping center very close by the Condo, it took that need right away ( Downtown Kona is only about 10 min drive). The grounds are very well kept, Parking is steps away from the door, The pool was cool, clean, secure and a joy for the kids to play in. The condo itself gave us nothing to want for. Well stocked, clean and the owners were more than accommodating with a very sweet personal touch to make up for small repair that needed to happen while we were there. My son ate all his Chocolate chip pancakes that morning Tony.. So you were a huge hit, Thank you very much. The snorkel bay just up the street (5 min walk) was perfect for younger kids. Most of it was less than 5 feet deep and loaded with all sorts of fish and Turtles. There is also a smaller semi private beach 2 minutes walk to the right of the resort.. great place to watch the sunsets. All in all, a great place to mellow out and soak up what we are go there for.. Relaxation, Silence and Warmth. It was a Pleasure. Thank you for sharing a little slice of paradise with our family. Hope to be back soon :)
Aloha Ron and Lisa,

Beauty Spot to spend a week
My wife and I along with my in laws stayed in Tony's place for a week vacation. The place was clean, 2 bed 2 bath which was nice with both beds king size. The kitchen had everything anyone would need and more and overall we loved the place and would definitely stay there again. It was nice that it came with beach chairs boogie boards beach towels etc. Tony was fabulous to deal with and we wanted to check out later in the day because of a late flight and tony was just great and prompt in replying. I would highly recommend this place to stay for a vacation. Quick walking to a beauty snorkel beach (Kahaluu beach) with turtles and colorful fish. The pool in the complex and BBQs were great as well. There was a few ants in the kitchen but no biggie. Thanks so much Tony!
Thank you so much for your kind words Caleb. We're happy to know that you and your in -laws enjoyed your vacation. We're very much aware that a vacation trip involves a lot of planning along with the hope that everything turns out right. We're glad that your visit to our place in Hawaii was a success.

Good place to stay
Perfect location. Clean and well maintained.
We're very happy to know you enjoyed your stay. We know that a planned vacation comes with a lot of expectations toward an enjoyable stay. We hope that we have met most of what you had hoped for Ina vacation to the Big Island.
Everything in the townhouse was exactly as described. It was a great location and had all the extras you need to totally enjoy the island (lawn chairs, boogie board, cooler). Being able to walk to snorkelling and be located in such an ideal place to run and bike was great!
To Tony & family,
Thank you for taking the time to post your wonderful comments. We're very happy to know that your expectations for a great vacation were met.
Nice but tired,
We have rented at Kona Surf and Racquet before and were surprised at how dirty the condo was. It seemed dated and worn out. Cheap burber carpet that needed cleaning, dirty lanai furniture, kitchen had the once over done prior to our arrival, but microwave was dirty, vent was off the stove fan, lots of dirty dishes in the cupboard as D/W was old and probably not working too well. One bedroom fan clicked all night, the main bath did not drain, so one had to stand in 2 inches of water when showering, vertical blind in living room was coming off the tracks. Linens were old and worn out.Overall the Kona Surf and Racquet is a great place to stay, but this unit needs work!
Dear Rose and Bob,We are very disappointed to hear that you have encountered some issues in our condo. We have to admit we are surprised considering the very positive response of recent guests. You can be sure we will be immediately addressing the specific concerns mentioned.The enjoyment of our guests in our condo is something we never take for granted. As previous guest have noted , we provide all of the amenities that any household would have and try to make sure that problems encountered by our guests are quickly addressed. Your comment about the dishwasher is also slurprising as it is only 3 years old.
Like any home things can go wrong at any time which is the reason that we provided you with my cell telephone number so we can be reached at any time. We are however disappointed that you didn't take us up on this offer as we would have had your concerns resolved quickly if not immediately by contacting people that we have on site.Once again, thank you for your comments.SincerlyTony
Very good location
Very much as advertised. Good location for exploring the island. Pool and tennis courts are excellent. Although this townhouse is not ocean view, the beach is only a 2 or 3 minute walk. Would definitely stay here again.
Our town home is in an ocean front gated resort complex in famous Alii Drive, the heart of downtown Kona. Our complex is called Keauhou Surf & Racquet Club. We are walking distance to the Keauhou shopping center which has a grocery store, pharmacy store, restaurants, movie theatre etc. Alii Drive extends from just past our complex on one end to famous downtown Alii where the shops and restaurants face the water.
Also within a short walking distance is Kahalu'u Beach, reputed to be one of the best snorkeling beaches on the island. Alii drive is also used by strollers, cyclists and joggers. Downtown Alii is also famous for being the finish line of the famous International Ironman competition held each year in October.
'End of the World' is a nearby park which was the site of a historic battle in 1820 that pitted Hawaiians who wanted to keep their religion and those who did not. It is well worth a visit.
There is a shuttle from the Keauhou Shopping Center to downtown Alii drive for $2. Check schedule at the shopping center.
Attractions include coffee plantations, volcano park in Hilo, cultural sites, recreational activities such as surfing, jet ski,stand-up paddle,outrigger canoe, snorkeling, zip line, etc.
We have a book on our book shelf called 'Hawaii The Big Island Revealed' which details just about every attraction worth seeing and then some. We ask that you place it back on the book shelf for future guests.
