About Michael Rimkus
My wife Maureen and I have twin 12 year old children, Aiden and Adela. My parents, Al & Linde, have their primary residence on the Big Island of Hawaii about 800 ft. above the city of Kailua Kona. We have been visiting my parents for years and they were the ones who turned us on to purchasing our investment property in Country Club Villas when this third story unit became available for purchase in the fourth quarter of 2014.
Michael Rimkus purchased this Condo in 2014
Why Michael Rimkus chose Keauhou
We did a full remodel in 2015, which took 6 months to complete. My mother use to own an interior design center in Portland, Oregon and she supervised the entire remodel. Our condo is now of the highest quality, and since we usually stay with my parents when we visit, we wanted to open up our beautiful unit to wonderful people who have their own high standards when it comes to vacation rentals.

Best Big Island Vacation!
My family of six just returned home from a fabulous week in this condo and we all want to go back! The condo is beautiful in photos, but even more so in person. It is very clean and has everything you could possibly need for a vacation in Hawaii - beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrellas, even a cooler! The kitchen is well stocked with everything you could possibly need for eating in and it was nice to be able to grill a meal out on our lanai overlooking the golf course and the ocean. My husband and I traveled with our two adult children and their significant others, so it was nice to have three bedrooms all with access to their own bathroom and air conditioning. The owner is very responsive and very easy to work with and he makes sure that you have everything you need for a wonderful vacation. When we return to the Big Island, this will be the only place we consider renting for our stay. The complex has three beautiful, well maintained swimming pools and a tennis court. It is quiet and in the perfect location for quick trips to the grocery store, restaurants and beaches. We very highly recommend renting this condo for the perfect Big Island vacation!
Donna, thank you very much for the lovely review, we really appreciated hosting your family! You are all welcome back any time!
Fantastic Group Rental with Wonderful View of Ocean
Unit was fantastic for our group - 2 couples and one single since we each had a room & bathroom to ourselves. View was fantastic & unit is fully upgraded. Extra surprise was all the beach gear - beach chairs, umbrellas, mats & plenty of towels. Administration of the rental was extremely professional, well organized and came with wonderful advice on restaurants and beaches which we used and were glad we did. Shopping center within walking distance with groceries, drug store, and wonderful restaurant Sam Choys - great sunset views. Parking convenient & easy to get places. Would recommend renting car.
Marilyn, thank you for the wonderful review! We really enjoyed hosting your party and we hope that you come back and rent from us again on your next trip to the Big Island! Mahalo!
Love the place. Modern and very well equipped. Only small annoyance is the noise from the main road. Michael is a great host, very responsive.
Stephane and Johanne,
We really enjoyed hosting you at our condo! Sorry about the road noise, sometimes Ali'i drive can get busy, so I'm glad it was only a small annoyance. I did review all your past property reviews and observed that you haven't given any '5 star' reviews, so thank you for giving a '4 star' review, which matches your highest rating. We hope that you come back and stay with us again!
Great place and view.
Thank you Phil, we enjoyed hosting you!
Great property with a spectacular view, just "hanging loose"
We were here for two weeks, and we enjoyed staying in this condo! It was very spacious and sufficient for the six adults. The condo was decorated very nice, neat and clean, and it had all the amenities and a well-stocked kitchen. Also this condo had many items that you need for the beach/other activities.
This property has a great location overlooking the golf course, the beauty of the tropical plants, natural lava and the North Pacific Ocean. You'll enjoy seeing and hearing the nature of the Big Island. It is near the shopping center, grocery stores, and restaurants, which is a 5-minute walk. What is also convenient, you are not too far from the downtown Kona area, which is a 15-minute drive, or you can catch a trolley ride, which the pickup location is in the shopping center area, and it was great for a leisure ride.
The BEST part of this condo was the lanai. We spent every morning sipping our coffee, reading the local newspaper, check our emails on our phones (of course), and enjoying the spectacular view. In the evenings, enjoying our wine/cocktails and watching the beautiful, amazing sunsets! The BBQ grill is very convenient, which is right on the lanai. We enjoyed many prepared dinners on the lanai.
Prior to our stay in this condo, Michael (the owner) was very quick to respond if you had any questions. He was communicative, informative, and provided recommendations for things to do/restaurants on the Big Island. He made sure that we arrived safely and checked if the condo was sufficient for our stay. Also, he had some great instructions that is kept in the condo should you forget what you need to do for operating the ceiling fans, etc. and checking out instructions.
I highly recommend this condo. It was a wonderful stay, and absolutely an amazing view! We would certainly consider staying here again.
Marvie, thank you so much for such a wonderful review. Really enjoyed interacting with you prior to and during your stay, you and your party were great to host. Can't wait to host you all again on your next trip to the Big Island!
Great location, super clean, spacious, great views from the deck.
We had a wonderful stay here. The host made everything very easy for us. Always very responsive. Provided great recommendations for things to do. The condo itself was spacious, very clean, had all the amenities we were looking for (laundry, kitchen, bathtub for our toddler). Everything looked very new and recently remodeled. The pool next to the condo was perfect for our 3 year old. The sunsets from the deck was amazing. We happened to be here during a meteor shower and we could see this clearly from the deck at night!
Nancy, thank you so much for the nice review, we really appreciate it! We hope that you come back to the Big Island, and if you do, we hope you book with us again. Mahalo!
Our condo is located in the Keauhou Resort area of Kailua Kona. The Big Island is vast and Keauhou is an ideal base to explore it from. Guests looking to stay local often enjoy beach hopping along the Kona Coast. Two nearby favorites are Kahalu'u Beach, which offers some of Hawai'i Islands best snorkeling, and Magic Sands, which is loved for sunbathing, boogie boarding and surfing. Both are accessible on foot, but can be reached by car in 3-5 minutes.
