Beautiful 2 BR / 2 BA oceanfront townhouse at Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club
Are you looking for a special place, with an unsurpassed oceanfront location and view? Look no further...You've found it all at Keauhou-Kona Surf and Racquet Club Townhouse #186!
Keauhou-Kona Surf and Racquet #186 exudes pride of ownership: Balinese and Hawaiian furnishings and art work grace every room, creating a home designed for comfort and relaxation!
In December 2012, the townhouse had a major renovation. The kitchen was remodeled removing walls to make a more open floor plan and installing new cabinets and counters. The laundry facilities were moved upstairs bathroom area, which opened the kitchen considerably. The upstairs bathroom was completely changed, all the plumbing moved and now has a large shower at the end of the room with a large window overlooking the ocean. The living room, kitchen, bathrooms and stairs have been tiled with travertine. We repainted the bedrooms in July 2014 and purchased a new sleeper sofa in February 2017 for added guest comfort.
Let the soft breeze and ocean waves lull you to sleep in the Makai (toward the ocean) Master Bedroom, furnished with a King bed and cable TV. The tropical Mauka (mountain side) bedroom has two twin beds (easily converted to a King with kit provided), and teak and bamboo furnishings.
Keeping to our motto 'Just Say No to Rugs,' this townhouse sports bamboo hardwood flooring in the bedrooms and tile throughout the ground floor.
From the ground floor Lanai you can watch Spinner Dolphins swim the coastline daily, whales breaching during their migration and incomparable sunsets with the ocean waves literally breaking in front of you. If you were staying anywhere closer you'd be swimming!
Located in the upscale Keauhou area this is a highly desirable, quiet, family-friendly and gated 14 acre garden community featuring 3 lighted tennis courts (tennis pro available), a swimming pool that was fully refurbished in October 2016 and nicely done community BBQ and picnic areas.
Walk to Kahalu’u Beach Park (ranked among the best snorkeling reefs in the Islands) and to the nearby Keauhou shopping center for shops, dining, cinema, groceries, local Farmer's market and free Hula and local community entertainment weekly. Excellent golfing is available at the adjacent Kona Country Club Ocean Golf Course or take the day off and watch the local surfers “shred” a few waves.
This is an excellent and safe walking area with many sights, open expanses of coastline and minimal automobile traffic. The area is great for strolling and rich in historical landmarks and heiau (temples), one of which is adjacent to the unit. This area was once the home of the Ali'i (Hawaiian chiefs) and the waters were once reserved for use only by royalty!
This is a wonderful retreat you are sure to enjoy!
We also have a condo that sleeps four at https://www.vrbo.com/1020417

About Edgar Mendez Chacon
We're Edgar and Jiraphon, an adventure-loving, world traveling couple. We fell in love with the island of Hawaii (also known as the Big Island) and enjoy the vibe of the island.
Edgar Mendez Chacon purchased this Townhome in 2014
Why Edgar Mendez Chacon chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
On our very first visit to the Big Island of Hawaii we absolutely fell in love with this beautiful island. We rented a townhouse in Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club right next to this one and were surprised to see this unit for sale. We had thoroughly enjoy the area as well as the island so much that we could see ourselves coming back again and again to explore Hawaii. We were lucky enough to be able to purchase the townhouse and are pleased to be able to share it with our guests and hope they have as wonderful stay as we did!
What makes this Townhome unique
If you want oceanfront, look no further! To get any closer you'll have to be sleeping on the water! The master bedroom, living room and lanai look unobstructed over 2,500 miles of unbroken Pacific Ocean, the waves of which break not even 50 feet from your door. There is no need for air conditioning since there is a nice ocean breeze to keep you comfortable when you're not out exploring all the magic the island has to offer! If you're a light sleeper you may want to bring some ear plugs since the sound of the waves crashing can be loud at times if you sleep with the windows open.

We very much enjoyed our stay. The sound of the waves crashing into the rocks immediately beyond our lanai was enjoyable for us. We were able to see whales, spinner dolphins and sunsets from the lanai. The property is well kept up and well stocked. The upstairs washer and dryer were very convenient. TV and internet reception were good. Edgar was very responsive to the issues we found.
The grounds in the complex are well kept up and have a nice variety of flowers. Just walk across the driveway to the pool. A short walk to the quiet beach next door - nice for a stroll, or a sit, or a walk out on the rocks but not a swimming beach. Pleasant waves breaking and sea turtles feeding - you do have to really look for them. There are some petroglyphs on the flat rocks near the heiou at the end. There's a writeup on them in Doughty's "Hawaii The Big Island Revealed" guidebook. There are a couple of good sized blowholes on the golf course at the other end of the complex.
Some things to enjoy in the immediate area: 6 minute walk to Kahaluu Beach for snorkeling, farmers market in Keahou Shopping Center Saturday mornings, hula show there Friday evenings, Original Hawaiian Chocolate Factory, the End of the World - site of a major Hawaiian battle, Kamehameha III birthplace, Rays on the Bay at the Sheraton - on a calm evening, Wednesday farmers market at the Sheraton. We also enjoyed taking in a musical at the Aloha Theatre. It's also just a short drive to Greenwell Farms, the Kona Living History Coffee Farm, the Captain Cook Sunday morning farmers market, and Mauka Meadows in the other direction. Plenty of others in the guidebooks - Painted Church, the Place of Refuge and Two Step to the south and many others for more of a drive. It's a couple of hours to Volcanoes National Park - be prepared for cool weather and rain.
Party of 4 all under the age of 39. The view, accessibility to a pool, beaches and grocery store very close by. Lots of great activities as well on site and around the area. Walking distance was easily achievable for the trolly and swimming activities in the ocean. Disappointed that we had to buy a lot of our own condiments like ketchup, mustard, mayo, pepper, salt etc. as other VRBO places we stayed at supplied or kept lot of it in the fridge/pantry from past visitors. The toilets don’t flush very well, beds could be updated (as there are lumps in the bed).
Listen to those waves
Mixed family group of four, nephews, nana and aunt, enjoyed our stay immensely. Made good use of the snorkel gear and the well equipped kitchen. Enjoyed the proximity to the beaches and the terrific local information provided ahead of our stay. Perfect for our first visit to the big island.
This beautiful condo is exactly as expected. Comfortable, ocean front, beach close by, easy sleeping with the surf breaking on the lava to put you to sleep. Added plus - door front parking, grocery store nearby, close to Kona but away from the traffic and noise. Shared and semi private oceanfront patio. We did not use any other facilities but it was close to the pool (but no pool noise at night!). Would definitely recommend.
Beautiful View and Great Location
You can't beat the view. We were able to see whales right off the lanai. The condo is conveniently located and has a great pool. It was perfect for our family of four.
Every bit as nice as the pictures seem! Great location!
Our family of six plus an infant stayed in the condo comfortably and it was every bit as great as we hoped when we booked online. The snorkel and boogie board filled closet was such a bonus! There was enough gear for my four older children who are various ages. You can’t beat the view and location-oceanfront, pool front and close to shopping and beaches! Edgar was very accommodating and we feel lucky to have found this gem!
World Class Game Fishing Whale Watching during migration season (directly from your lanai!) Great Farmer's Markets with Fresh Fruit and Veggies nearby (be sure to check out the South Kona Fruit Stand!) Free Friday Night Hula shows at the Keauhou Shopping Center, a short walk from the townhouse.
