  • Great Ocean View, Incredible Sunsets

    "This second floor condo had every thing we needed for a relaxing vacation on the Big Island. The bed was very comfortable and the sound of the crashing waves lulled us to sleep. The condo is Ocean Front with an unobstructed view from the living room and lanai. Never turned on the A/C - used the ceiling fans, kept the windows open and lowered the lanai shade during the day. Kitchen is well equipped. We enjoyed the man made beach right by the ocean, sitting on the chaise lounges under the coconut palms, then watching the beautiful sunsets with a cocktail every evening. There is a nice BBQ area and picnic tables down there too. The condo manager keeps the grounds immaculate. The complex is very quiet. We had the beach to ourselves most of the time, and the pool was never crowded. A short drive takes you to the Magic Sands Beach, Da Poke Shack - (the best poke ever) and the KTA grocery store that had everything we needed (great recommendation by a local). We enjoyed dining in as well as eating out several times at the restaurants at the other end of Alii Drive just a few miles down the road. Favorites were Huggo's and Jackie Rey's for dinner, and breakfast at Island Lava Java. A great day trip was a stop for lunch at Big Island Brew in Waimea before we toured the Hawaii Vanilla Company. Ann was very nice to work with, and responded quickly. She has thoughtfully provided beach towels, beach chairs, a cooler, guide books, and even first aid supplies. If you love looking at the ocean, beautiful sunsets and listening to the waves without a crowd of people around this is the place to be!"

  • Quiet, Friendly & Centrally Located

    "I stayed here for 4 nights during a writing/vacation trip to the Big Island. It was wonderful. I stayed in a downstairs unit that had tons of windows, which provided plenty of natural light and fresh air. The kitchen was fully stocked with everything I needed to make my own meals. The bed was comfy with lots of pillows, & there was a ton of closet/storage space. The unit was clean & surprisingly spacious for a studio-style set up. The property location was perfect. 10 minute drive from the airport. The house is up on the mountain & in the clouds, but I was down at the beach & in the sun (weather varies dramatically here, even within a couple of miles) in less than 10 minutes. This is something to consider, because it's cooler up on the mountain & may make for more comfortable sleeping after a long, hot day at the beach. The house is in a quiet, calm, tropical residential neighborhood. It's a 4 minute drive up the mountain to a well-stocked neighborhood grocery store called Matsuyama Food Mart. The store has some decent carry out food--pizza & Hawaiian-Asian cuisine if you don't feel like cooking. The larger chain grocery stores like Safeway are a 15-20 minute drive down the mountain. Groceries are expensive here, & I didn't find the prices at a place like Safeway much different than those at Matsuyama's. There were considerate touches from Della that made my stay even better: beautiful leis & a tropical bouquet to greet me; tons of fresh clean towels; fresh papaya & cherries from trees just outside the door; snorkeling & beach equipment for free (warning: test the snorkeling equipment before using in the ocean. I found a lot of missing or broken parts from past guest use/abuse); & farm fresh eggs from Della's chicken coup. The other folks staying on the property were quiet, considerate & friendly. I was a young woman traveling alone & felt completely safe. The whole place was quiet by 10pm & the other guests/tenants were up and moving by about 6am (it was hard to sleep past this time because of this, so just be aware if you're a night owl). Overall, I would highly recommend this place!!"

  • Great location, Great Property, Great Price.

    "Our second time in the Surf and Racquet club due to its proximity to Kailua Kona, and excellent snorkelling just north of the condo, and 20 mile south at two-step. This really is a great location. If you like these activities, and also like whiling away the hours with a good book, a glass of wine, and a view of the ocean, I highly recommend it. The condo was huge - could have slept 6. At least that way, my wife did not have to endure my snores, and I could sleep with the doors and drapes open. The Lanai gives a great view of the ocean, and has room for sunbeds and a table. There was a little maintenance item: upstairs blinds has ceased. This was of no concern to us because were were not using that room anyway."
