Exceptional Oceanfront view & clean & nice property!
Condo is part of Keahou Surf/Racquet property. We have stayed multiple different condos in this area as we like the location. Oceanfront condos have lanai's that are truly right next to the ocean! This is an excellent property with a large wraparound corner lanai with beautiful direct oceanfront views. Actual property felt/looked better than the photos.
The condo was very clean and has had the kitchen updated recently. Very well stocked with cooking equipment and basic supplies. Plenty of beach towels and supplies to use. Checkout procedures very straightforward, doesn't require you to put towels in washing machine, etc. Very nice!! -- I find it very annoying to pay cleaning fees and then have to also start several cleaning activities in order to get deposit back. Highly recommend!
Things to know:
- These condos are 2 bedroom, but the master bedroom is open to the living area (provides access to ocean views and breezes). There are sliding Japanese type door screens that close off the space if desired. We have had no issues with setup, but it is different.
- there isn't AC in unit. Again - we've always had great cross breezy airflows, but occasionally, its a bit warm when you first go to sleep. Property has plenty of fans which quickly help adjust temps if needed.
- this is a truly oceanfront property. You will enjoy ocean wave sounds -- if its heavy surf period, it can be loud. One of us had to use earplugs a couple of nights.
Perfect in Paradise
Thank you Jay for sharing your beautiful property with us! We have stayed at this complex many times before and this unit hits the top of the list! Loved the decor and beautiful kitchen that, of course, has amazing ocean front view! So convenient for groceries, swimming and entertainment. The unit was very clean and well stocked, could not ask for more.
All it could be and more!!!!!
The best of Kona can be found here at Keahou Surf and Racket Club. Beautifully maintained grounds and friendly staff. Our unit is our go to with hawaiian ambiance throughout and an owner who is great to answer all questions and is available when needed. Great shopping and farmers markets within a mile along with a weekly free hula show.
Surf & Racquet Club Beautiful, open and airy unit.
It is a well furnished apartment. Everything was available in the kitchen. Also for the beach everything was provided.
We felt very comfortable. The direct view from the balcony to the sea was unique.
Perfect appartement with sea view
The appartement was really nice. The sea view was perfect to watch the sunsets in the evening.
The appaartement was clean and the kitchen had enough space for all of uns and so everyone could prepare his meals.
The location of the appartement was also pretty nice with the pool and tennis courts nearby. There is also a good super market just 5 minutes walk time.
We were happy with this appartement and can recommed it do every family who will stay in Kailua-Kona and wand to explore big island.
Extremely unclean property
We stayed at this property for a few days. We had chosen thisvproperty based on the reviews and pictures. We had thought that the best thing about the property was the great view where it seemed that you were right on the water. That had been the only good thing about the property. There was no elevator, and the building and furniture inside the property was extremely old. All of that would have been fine had the property been clean. However, it was as if no one had cleaned inside the property for years, and the property had areas that were carpeted, including the deck, which trapped dust. There was so much dust and the smell of mildew that we could not use the back bedroom, and instead one member of our party slept on the couch, while the rest of us were crammed onto a bed. The sheets were dirty and unwashed from the last renter, and there was hair in the shower as well as the fridge. There was also bugs in the microwave. The knives, tea kettle, and pots were rusted and dirty. We contacted the manager of the property, who at first denied the property was unclean, but later said he would have someone clean the property the next day. Once we returned the following night to see if anything had been cleaned, we noticed the only changes were that the unclean sheets and the hair covered ice packs in the fridge had been taken. There had been no attempt to actually clean the property. There was still hair in the fridge and the shower. All the surfaces were still covered with dust, and there was still a heavy odor of dust and mildew. Which is a big health concern if one of your party has asthma. The manager never followed up to see if everything was ok. I would absolutely not recommend this property. The pictures that were taken are professional photos that are deceiving. I hope the owner and the manager take this review seriously and correct the problems this property has.
