Almost Oceanfront at the wonderful Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club. Only 60 feet to the shoreline or pool AND less than 1/2 mile to the best snorkeling beach in Kona. Couples or families - we've got the repeat guests to attest to our wonderful accommodations and high attention to detail for our guests.

E Komo Mai! (Welcome!) Are you dreaming of your Hawaiian vacation? Stay at a 2bdrm/2bath, almost oceanfront (~60 ft from the shoreline), gorgeous & pristine, white tiled townhouse located in a four-star, gated, oceanfront complex on the Big Island of Hawaii. (Ironman Craig Alexander was a repeat guest and stayed here while placing 2nd and 1st in Kona Ironman.)

As our guest, you will know that you've found a heavenly piece of paradise as soon as you pull into our designated parking spot just 15 feet from front door. The bright tropical decor with beautiful white tiled floors will make you smile as you walk in and you'll anxiously check out the rest of unit and look forward to settling in and beginning your vacation. After a fun-filled day playing in the ocean, walking on the beach, strolling thru the lushly landscaped grounds or relaxing by the pool you'll happily retire to your comfortable home away from home. Mix a cool drink or two and watch the sunset each evening from the nearby lookout OR from the beach 200 yards out your front door. Everything you'll need to enjoy your vacation is in the unit and well-maintained for your comfort. And, when you finally decide to rest your eyes you'll do so with the sounds of surf to gently soothe you to sleep. In the morning the birds will serenade you to begin another wonderful day in paradise.

You will enjoy some ocean views from within the unit or while relaxing on your lanai. Did we mention that the pool is only 60 feet away from the unit? All you have to do is walk around the sacred heiau which is our 'backyard' and there's the pool. Or, you can just as easily walk less than 60 feet to the shoreline. If you're a regular tennis player or even just experimenting we have 3 lighted PREMIER surface courts and they're FREE for our guests. If you want lessons from a Pro that can also be easily arranged. And, yes, we have a couple of tennis racquets for our guests as well.

This lovely place is truly exceptional and we have the past and repeat guest reviews to prove it. Each year we are fortunate to welcome the return of multiple discerning guests such as yourself to our delightful home in paradise. And, each guest is special to us regardless of whether you visited before or if this is your first visit. We'd be delighted to welcome you anytime.

More about our complex - Located on world-famous Ali'i Drive the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club is a four star, gated complex just three minutes drive from groceries, shops, theater, and one of the most popular snorkeling beaches in Hawaii - Kahaluu State Park (also known as Turtle Beach). Additionally, the Kona Country Club golf course is located immediately next to the Surf and Racquet Club. There's even a FREE shuttle to get to and from town or the nearby shopping center - this shuttle stops next to the entry gates to our complex.

More about the unit - This unit sleeps four. The master bedroom includes a king bed, dresser, desk, TV, DVD player, clock radio, phone, oceanviews AND a walk in closet. The second bedroom includes twin beds, dresser, large closet and slight oceanview. Really, come let the waves lull you to sleep at night - it's wonderful.

The unit was completely remodeled in 2006 with brand new everything: furniture, appliances and other amenities. And it has new beautiful new white tile flooring and fresh paint throughout. (We continue to maintain it to perfection!)

Beach Supplies - We have beach towels, chairs, boogie board, cooler and even toys for the kids - just ask when you make reservation.

The location of condo and subsequent remodel was done with both our guests and our personal visits in mind. We wanted a place that we would LOVE on our return every year and it had to be in a GREAT location. We also made sure that it was furnished and decorated to accomodate all guests in comfort. After staying here you'll never want to stay in a hotel on vacation again!

In addition to all the other fun stuff our condo is a centrally located for visiting the Kona coffee plantations in nearby Holualoa, traveling to Volcanoes National Park, experiencing boating excursions off the Kailua-Kona pier, shopping at outdoor markets or taking a tour to the top of Mauna Kea and visiting the observatory. And it's only 3 minutes drive to Kahaluu State Park (aptly known as Turtle Beach) where you can snorkel and swim with the turtles and beautiful tropical fish. The park has multiple bathrooms, showers and vendors that sell food and rent snorkel and beach gear.

Please let us know if we can answer any additional questions about the unit, the complex, Kona or the Big Island in general. Aloha!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Very happy with Townhouse, location and very responsive owner!”

(posted on Trip Advisor, August, 2014)



The unit is very clean, bright and well stocked, beach towels, beach chairs and cooler were great convenience. Owner provides good information and instructions. The complex has a fairly large pool, tennis courts (which my daughter and my nephew used almost everyday) and BBQ, walk a few feet and you can watch the sunset! My family enjoyed our stay very much!

Nice property

  • 4 of 5

We rented this property for 4 nights and had nice time in Kona. The house is located in a nice and clean environment with BBQ and pool. The house is really clean and quiet. Easy access by car to local attractions. We have only 2 negative points, the bed in the master bedroom that is not really confortable and the fact that we need to do laundry before departure! Thanks Sandy for sharing your house with us! We wanted to stay longer!!! :)

Owner's Response: Aloha, Nathalie: Thank you so much for choosing our townhouse for your stay in Kona. We were happy to have you. Thanks, too, for sharing your feedback on the bed and laundry. Our regular and repeat guests haven't said anything so I'll try to figure out if we need to change anything with the bed - we do want all of our guests to be comfortable! :) And, starting laundry on the last am is a request only. It's tremendously helpful if and when our guests can run the machines to help save time. We don't want anyone folding linens or remaking beds - just 'running' machines makes a huge difference in time and ensures housekeeper/s can focus on even more details which we insist upon to keep the unit super clean for your enjoyment. We do, however, ask for guests that request a late checkout to do laundry (run machines only) and we offer a $50 late checkout to block an additional night on the calendar so departing guests can leave for late flights feeling refreshed. I'm very sorry this was negative for you - I'll review and see what might work better should we enjoy a visit from you in the future. We want you to be happy and we'd be delighted to welcome you back anytime. With much mahalo! Sandy K.

Great Location and Pool at affordable price

  • 4 of 5

Overall this was a great property. The pool was amazing and we had good sunset views over the Pacific Ocean just steps from our back porch. It was not right in the main part of Kona, but about a 10-15 minute drive. It was nice to be outside of town a bit, but did mean more driving. The condo was clean and well kept, but not updated. No air-conditioning unless you pay more, which we decided not to do since it would only affect the master bedroom. Enjoyed eating meals on the lanai or by the pool. The property was quiet and the grounds were well-kept and beautiful.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Traci: Thank you very much for your review. I'm always delighted to share our home in paradise with guests. The pool, proximity to the ocean, the flowers all around us and the convenience to a beach (200 yards), shopping center (less than 1/2 mile) and world-class snorkeling (within 1/2 mile) make this townhouse perfect for us. And, being surrounded by amazing flora (hibiscus, plumeria, and gardenia) and even palm trees in our yard makes this park-perfect setting even more wonderful. I'm also glad you were comfortable with the ceiling and pedestal fans. The AC is available in main bedroom but guests seem to do well with just fans to promote air movement as desired. Thanks for being a great guest! We'd be delighted to have you back anytime. (PS - if you have a minute, please let me know what needs updating and I'll make it happen.) With much mahalo, Sandy K.

Relaxing and peaceful location, but so close to the action

  • 4 of 5

This property is part of a well established gated community right next to the sea. While there is no direct beach access there is a lovely beach within a few minutes walk. The property is close to a nice shopping centre, and 15 minutes from Kailua-Kona. There is another beach and boat harbour a few minutes drive to the south at Keauhou. A trolley service passes along this section of coast and is a good option if not driving.

There is a lovely pool on site and 3 tennis courts.

The house is very clean and tidy, and very well equipped. The bedrooms are very spacious. We really appreciated the large fridge and washer/ dryer. Having an upstairs and downstairs bathrooms was great.

We would definitely choose this property again if we were visiting Hawaii again.

Great quiet yet convenient location

  • 4 of 5

Two senior couple of us stayed there for 7 nights. A great quiet location in the setting of a mini park and garen with public fecilities of swimming pool, tennis courts and BBQ set. Conveniet location- very close to sandy shore for swimming and watching beautiful sunsets. 3-4 minutes drive to a big grocery shopping center. 8-10 minutes driving distance to Kailua Village where all the day and night activities, shopping, eating and entertaining are located. We have the pleasure of summarizing our expriences of staying in this condo as follows: 1) The owner had been very friendly and patiently providing us all local travel information and answered all our questions. The condo was moderately aged, but we could feel that the owner and the property manager had been trying to maintain it well. The property manager was kind to allow us an ealier check-in and promplty helped us with water heater problem because a wall-switch was inccidently flipped off by our friend couple from Taiwan who did not know English sign. 2) As being warned before we checked-in, the dryer machine was extremely noisy while working. We killed 4 cockroaches found in two bed rooms during our stay (We did take out all house trashes every day) and lots of tiny flies in the two bathrooms staying on the wall and lied dead on the floor every day (I guessed they were tiny enought to come in through the window screens while attracted by lights). The condo had all basic toiletries in the bathroom, however adding shampoo and bathing liquid plus additional tissue boxes would be wonderful. Above being said, this condo is still a good choice for its location, pricing and the warmth of the people we dealth with. Aloha!

Spotless and cosy

  • 5 of 5

As we opened the front door, we were impressed by the 'feel' of the unit. We felt at home. The unit was spotless and fully equipped. The white tile floors set off the furnishings. It was tastefully decorated with a glass topped dining table and a bamboo sofa. The beds were so comfy. We appreciated the closeness of the pool and the BBQ. The ocean, (Turtle beach), was only minutes away. We would love to return to this unit the next time we visit Hawaii!
