Recent Keauhou reviews

  • Big Island Christmas Adventure

    "Let me start this review by saying that I started my search for lodging much later than I should have. My wife and I had never visited Hawaii during the holiday's. Luckily for us, Gayle's condo was still available. Having stayed in Keauhou during our previous trips, we prefer this location, which adds to excitement of visiting Kona in the evening, and reaching out to all the destinations during the day. The condo was very comfortable and well setup. The teenage boys immediately took over the upstairs, where there is a fabulous 60" TV, and of course is closer to the refrigerator. My wife and I claimed the downstairs, which has one of the most comfortable beds I have ever slept in. There is no AC in the unit, but the airflow, combined with ample fans, made the evenings very comfortable. The condo is well stocked with towels, linens, and other essentials. I especially appreciated the washer/dryer. In summary, I was very happy with the condo, the location, the view from the lanai(s), the swimming pools, and lastly, with the interaction with Gayle before and during our stay."

  • Hawaii heaven

    "We just returned from a week at Turtle place. I can not even begin to describe how nice the place is. Traveled from the east coast for a week on the Big Island. We have two boys ages 13, 11. Prior to our trip we had narrowed it down to about three vrbo places. We decided to stay at turtle place because we liked the location. You are 5 miles from downtown Kona and less than a mile to a grocery store and about 30 mins south of Kona airport. We talked to Stacey prior to booking and she was very sweet and informative. The condo has everything you could want: beach towels, snorkel gear for family of four, boogie boards, umbrella, cooler. Top floor has king sized bed, nice bathroom and shower and sweet porch to drink your coffee on in the morning. 2nd floor has living area, kitchen, another lanai, 2nd bedroom with private lanai. Lots of space. Kitchen has more than you will need and a welcome basket awaited us full of Kona coffee, fruit, and candy. There is no air conditioning but plenty of fans. We were gone most days from 10a.m.-8 p.m. I was hot the first night... but, think I was just a mess from our 14+hour travel day. Outside temps were low 80's during the day and low 70's at night. If you are someone who likes air conditioning and plan to spend a lot of time during the day in the condo then this place may not be for you. We explored the island...put over a 1000 miles on our rental jeep (highly recommend) and had the vacation of a lifetime. We swam with dolphins in Kealakekua bay, snorkeled with turtles at Punalu'u Beach park, snorkeled "two-step" (boys favorite), snorkeled Kapoho tide pools. Jumped off the cliffs in South point (scarey), saw hot lava at Kilauea volcano. Spent a day touring Kohala coast beaches (where Marriott Waikoloa is). We are SOOOOO happy we did NOT stay or rent in that area...highly commercialized, chain restaurants, "fake" beaches. I do not think that is true Hawaii but if you like pools, big resort feel, you may like it. The last day we drove to Waipi'o Valley and my oh my what beauty! We did the drive to the left of the lookout which requires a 4 wheel drive and nerve...highlight of the trip...waterfall, wild horses, huge waves at beach...crazy beautiful. We then continued on to Kahuna Falls, Umauma Falls and Akaka Falls. Had dinner at a low key Mexican restaurant in Hilo and Jack Black was in the restaurant eating...my boys got a kick out of that. A fabulous vacation! Thank you Stacey! Maholo!"

  • Amazing!!!

    "I rented this condo for a week recently and was very impressed how nice, equipped and comfortable 5-201 was. It is located a few miles south of Kona and there is ample shopping near by however, you will feel pleasantly isolated from the tourist grind. The condo is very nice, updated, clean and spacious. I stopped at Walmart and Safeway prior to arriving at the condo which was a mistake. Everything I purchased was already at the condo i.e. shampoo, rinse, soap, spices, etc. Anyway, I had an awesome time in Kona and I absolutely recommend condo 5-201 (or any rental at the Surf & Raquet Club) and give the place 5 stars. Thanks Jay! Mahalo-"

  • Ironman for Jennifer

    "Rating Details: The property manager was more than helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: It was a very nice condo. The view was great and the bed was comfy. The only issue we had was the flood lights that cam on at night to keep the vandals out of the pool area. Overall we enjoyed our stay. It would have been nice to have cleaning service during the stay to replace TP etc."
