JC Doremus purchased this condo in 2014

Why JC Doremus chose Keauhou

It was a nice chance to upgrade from multiple smaller 1 bedroom complexes into a larger luxury environment in one of the most spectacularly landscaped complexes on world famous Alii Drive. Located adjacent to the Kona Country Club on one side and just a short walk away from Kahalu'u Beach Park it's a perfect vacation getaway spot. Jason's Dad worked on the project when it was being built!

What makes this condo unique

On site tennis, volley ball, sunset views over the Pacific, pool, barbeque grill. Enjoy an early morning run on Alii Drive, snorkeling within a 5 minute walk, dining just a quick walk UP THE HILL (you may want to drive) but only five minutes away. Keauhou Shopping center also has a movie theater, grocery store (buy your FRESH FISH THERE!), drugstore and what we think is one of the best farmer's markets on the island on Saturday morning. Head just a bit further down Alii Drive and enjoy golfing at the Oceanside Kona Country Club golf course. If you turn right at the Alii Drive/Kam III light and go west on Kam III you will be at the Keauhou Bay and Harbour which offers boat tours and beach volley ball! Also a lovely new bar restaurant has opened up there right by the harbor.

Beautifully appointed, comfortable and private

  • 5 of 5

We ao enjoyed our stay in this property. The condo had everything we could imagine needing in the kitchen, rooms, baths, laundry, pool, bbq, lenai, and parking. The beds were very comfortable and the ceiling fans kept all cool at night. While close to the road, we weren't bothered by the traffic noise and enjoyed the screening and private garden area very much. Would stay again in a heartbeat. Thank you, Mahalo and Merry Christmas!

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The location is fantastic: close to beaches, shopping, and nightlife. The unit itself is very nice: clean and well-appointed.

Nicely landscaped, units and buildings thoughtfully arranged for privacy and views.

  • 4 of 5

Loved the lanai! A great place for meals and conversation. It was fun to be able to sit and watch the birds and other wildlife during down time. The kitchen is well equipped for meal preparation, and being on the ground floor is very convenient. Appreciated the parking right out front. Close proximity to the road did not affect sleeping since the road noise did not come into the bedrooms. It was nice to have Roxy to call if any questions or problems arose, and double nice that she is so sweet and helpful. A pleasant place to stay...close to beach and store but far enough away from the noisier sections of Alii Drive to allow for peaceful contemplation.

clean, with updated kitchen

  • 5 of 5

I enjoyed my stay in this condo very much! It is a two bedroom, two bath, with an updated kitchen. It feels very spacious and open. It is very clean, and has everything needed for a great vacation, from beach chairs to sunscreen.

I wanted to give 4 stars because it is a first floor corner unit, very close to Ali'i Dr, and the road noise was loud, even during the night. I came for a athletic event, so my sleep was important. The very reasonable price more than made up for the noise.

Many thanks to the owner for a clean, comfortable place to vacation!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the great review! We do offer more reasonable rates than similar updated units next to the ocean. The funny thing is we have had people come to the unit because the sound of the ocean waves smashing against the shoreline keeps them awake too!

Needs more work

  • 3 of 5

The pictures on the site are a little misleading. The kitchen has been remodeled and is nice, although we found a lot of dishes that were put away dirty, same with silverware and pans. The bathrooms are in desperate need of remodeling, The upstairs tenants sounded like they

were coming thru whenever they walked and every morning we were woken up from road noise. Also, this unit needs to be fumigated. There were a number of cockroaches running around on the floor and I found a very large spider sitting on top of the linens in the closet. The master bedroom only has a screen that separates it from the living room, not a lot of privacy.

Owner's Response: Aloha I so wish you would have contacted us about the bug issue while you were in the unit. We would have been happy to address it. We went in immediately after your review was posted and empted all the kitchen cabinets, sprayed them with an eco bug spray and bleached them out. We then put fresh roach tablets in inaccessble areas. We did find one cabinet that did have a problem and took care of it. We then waited two weeks until there was a break in rentals and did a roachathon BOMBING in the property where we cleared out all the cupboards and set off bombs in every room. Apparently the early eco spraying and locating the one problem area had solved the problem as the bombs did not evidence having much of a result the next day. We spray on a regular basis and the condo association also has regular maintenance both inside and out. No one has complained about the bathrooms prior. We generally do updating during the summer when the high season is over and will certainly take your advice to heart about hitting the bathroom next! Thanks though for your comments. Sorry you were disturbed by the upstairs people..I think that is a vacation rental also. The bedroom has shoji screens which are a tropical design choice and many people think they are exotic.. The property is next to the road with foilage in between and there's been mixed reactions to the traffic which tends to be in the daytime. If you're an early riser I suspect it's not as annoying. Of course I wake up with the birds in my neighborhood at about 6 AM every morning since it's an open window world in Hawaii and have had guests complain about that as well! ..
