  • Perfect condo in the perfect location

    "We just completed our 12-day vacation at Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club unit 196 and cannot say enough positive things about the complex and the unit. We chose Unit 196 because it was oceanfront and very close to the little "beach" cove for the complex. From our unit we could see tropical fish and turtles in the ocean, views of Big island and Maui (if it was really clear), and gorgeous sunsets. Our family loved having quick and easy access to the little cove for amazing tide pool explorations and wading for our younger kids. Reasonably good swimmers can also snorkel from the cove, which was mostly empty and therefore had incredible sea life. After walking around the complex we noted that many of the units do not have easy access to this cove, which makes this townhouse especially compelling. The unit itself was spacious, with a very well-stocked kitchen, linens, beach toys, and thoughtful touches like Kona coffee and Maui Cookies, upon arrival. Unlike many vacation condos, you don't have to buy every last item for your stay - Sandy and Jeri provide you with items such as trash bags, paper towels, cooking spices, oils, condiments, etc. We also greatly appreciated the large floor fans in the afternoon heat. The complex is large and well maintained, and we enjoyed the many BBQs, pool, tennis courts, volleyball court, and clubhouse. If you have very young kids, the pool has a large section that is 1-foot deep, perfect for toddlers. Jeri, the on-island property coordinator, is an amazing wealth of island information and extremely friendly and helpful. Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club is about a 3-minute drive (5-minute bike and 7-minute walk) to the best snorkeling cove in Kona. If you take the oceanfront road, it will take about 10 minutes to reach the hustle and bustle of "downtown" Kona. The shopping center is 1-block away with a grocery store, drug store, restaurants, post office, movie theater, coffee place, gas station, and the necessities you need absent an ABC store! About 7-minutes up the hill you will be in the cooler climate of coffee plantations. We appreciated being just outside the super touristy section but still central to the areas we wanted to visit. Our family agreed that our next visit to the Big Island we will return to Unit 196. We cannot speak highly enough of Sandy (the owner) and Jeri (the on-island coordinator), both of whom were a pleasure to work with. Aloha!"

  • Great Condo

    "Lovely condo very nicely furnished and the most comfortable bed we've ever slept in! Condo had everything needed to have a very enjoyable stay in the BI. We found the condo to be very quiet and relaxing after a day at the beach or visiting the attractions on the BI. Would definitely rent again!"

  • Paradise!!

    "This house is perfect and Richard is a wonderful host! My husband and I enjoyed 5 glorious days at Apple Oasis. The home is spacious, clean , comfortable and well stocked. The location is magical!!! We enjoyed breakfast out on the lanai each morning watching the surfers, dolphins and the waves crash along the shore. Loved the proximity to town and beaches. Our time here was too short and we look forward to a return trip to Apple Oasis!"
