About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms Plus Additional Beds in Loft.

Cool Kona Breeze. From a majestic penthouse view you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic sunset and views of the shimmering blue Pacific ocean. You may just see whales swim past as you lounge on the expansive lanai and watch schools of yellow tang beckon you for a swim. This penthouse condo offers the best location on the Big Island.

One of a limited number of oceanfront condos with an up close view of the Pacific no longer afforded any developments in the area. Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club is a spacious and tranquil condo property with luxury amenities for your enjoyment and relaxation. Three lighted tennis courts with a resident tennis pro, a large pool with a wading area and poolside shower. Nearby golf courses and an Oceanfront walkway are there for your morning jog or sunset stroll.

The property is bordered by Kahalu’u Bay with Turtle Beach, surfing lessons and the best snorkeling on the island available just a short walk or drive away. To the south is the beautiful Keauhou Bay with a friendly rowing club experience for those with an adventurous streak or access to boat and fishing trips as well.

All the conveniences are in the neighborhood, theatres, pharmacy, KTA grocery with local fare and a Saturday farmers market. Kona Stories Books, a Salon and Spa and gift shops are located in the nearby Keauhou Shopping Center.

Keahou Surf and Racquet is situated at the southern edge of Kailua-Kona in a quiet 17acre garden property just far enough from the hustle and bustle town yet close enough for a quick trip to da Poke Shack or Shave Ice.

This third floor expansive unit offers panoramic views of the ocean with the living area and master bedroom opening to a large lanai and the second bedroom with a view to the mountains and the sunrise. You can also use the loft for extra sleeping quarters. Please note that certain time of year Kona can be hot and humid. Although our condo has no air conditioning, we do provide ceiling and floor fans to the bedrooms.

A full service kitchen and indoor and outdoor dining areas let you spread out and relax at home all the while enjoying the cool Kona breeze and the blue Pacific ocean.

Let the Big Island trade-winds take you away.

About Thanh Ly

Our family loves to travel. We have enjoyed many VRBO properties and hope we can share some of that same hospitality with our guests. We live on the Monterey Bay in California and despite the beauty of our neighborhood we still can't wait to visit our condo in Hawaii and hope you feel the same.

Thanh Ly purchased this condo in 2014

Why Thanh Ly chose Keauhou

We love the outdoors, hiking, biking, rowing, snorkeling, golfing and lounging on the lanai. We love good food and the laid back lifestyle. When we experienced the cool Kona breeze we were hooked. This place was perfect for us. We can't stay here all the time so why not let others enjoy it too. The Big Island has it all.

What makes this condo unique

The view is one of a kind. Watch the sun set every night as you lounge on your bed. Feel the breeze coming off the ocean and rocking you to sleep. It is private yet nestled in a friendly community.

Surf, snorkeling, sun...what could be better?

  • 5 of 5

The condo is a fair size sleeping 6 in our party. It looks over the ocean and the sound of the surf is incredible, especially as your laying in bed ready to fall asleep or as you wake up. I woke early and grabbed my snorkel gear and was the first in the water at Kahaluu Beach Park (10 minute walk) most mornings and usually got to swim with the turtles as they showed up to start grazing, an incredible way to start the day. The facilities are great and our gang took advantage of the pool and common bbq area. Downtown Kona is a 15 minute easy drive away and we found the condo a great place to begin our many adventures.

The condo was well set up with everything we needed in the kitchen and the beds were comfy. We didn't have any major heat so the fans and open windows kept it plenty cool enough. We had a great time and will miss having cocktails on the lanai while watching the sun sink into the sea!

Location, location, location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was a delight to rent! Our family of four has visited the Kona area several times over the years and the Keauhou area is one of our favorite locations to stay. The unobstructed view from this property is the best; miles of ocean just outside the doors! The condo was not only comfortable, but the landscaping where the condo is located is beautiful! Mature trees and flowers abound!

Since there is no A/C in the unit we were grateful for the nice ocean breezes that flowed through the space. There are also multiple fans, both ceiling and floor style to use to cool things down. We are not used to air conditioning so it wasn't a problem for us, but if you require A/C, try another place to stay because it is warm, even with fans. Also, the layout of the unit allows for some privacy, but the interior doors are all slatted and a portion of the main wall between the master bedroom and the living area is a sliding screen. It is private, but if you are traveling with noisy folks, this could make staying here uncomfortable.

The kitchen is well stocked, the washer and dryer are in working order and there are towels in each of the bathrooms. The beds are comfortable and the hammock on the lanai was a hit with our son; he slept there every night but one!

The owner generously provided beach towels and chairs and even a couple of floating devices that we used daily between the pool and the ocean!

The décor is inviting, the furniture comfy; easy place to relax.

One final note, it was a quiet place to stay and the people we met were friendly. The complex is a combination of vacationers and residents. Everyone seemed respectful of each others space.

Thank you Thanh for providing a great place to rent!

Excellent communication from the owner. The home and location was exactly as expected.

  • 5 of 5

The home was in a great location, far enough from Kailua but not too far. There is a nearby shopping center where all things necessary can be had. The sound of the waves, the sunset view, are just memorable. Communications from the owner were excellent, always prompt and clear, was a pleasure to deal with. This property makes the Big Island an even better experience. We would stay here again!

Beautiful place. Beautiful views of the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay at the condo. It was a perfect place to stay for a Hawaiian vacation. The condo was beautifully decorated and spacious. The view of the ocean was gorgeous. It was quiet except for the soothing sound of the ocean. The location was perfect too. We were able to access places we wanted to visit fairly easily.

Quiet Condo - Great Location

  • 5 of 5

Our family of 5 just stayed for 7 days at this Keauhou property. We loved the views, beautiful sunsets, ocean breeze and going to sleep to the sound of the waves every night. The condo was equipped with everything we needed for the week. Shopping, snorkeling and big waves within a mile radius. We took a snorkel cruise and evening cruise with the Manta Rays - both left from the Marina less than 10 minutes away. We really thought the Island had a lot of things to do, beautiful beaches, good golf, live volcano, what more could you ask for!!

Wonderful Oceanfront Haven!

  • 5 of 5

We throughly enjoyed our week-long stay in this lovely oceanfront condo! We found this an ideal location to explore the west side of the Big Island and always looked forward to returning to the comfort of the condo. In fact, we planned to return home almost every evening to enjoy the sunset from the generous-sized lanai. We loved falling asleep and waking up to the sound of the surf right outside the master bedroom. We appreciated having ceiling fans in every room, our favourite form of "air conditioning." The kitchen was very well equipped, even with an espresso machine. The tennis courts and swimming pool are immaculately maintained. We also appreciated the excellent communication between the owner and on-site manager; when we noted that a window needed repair, it was handled immediately. We'd love to return to enjoy this lovely home-away-from-home again!
