The Surf & Racquet 177 townhome is the perfect place for your Hawaiian get-away. It is located directly on the oceanfront on the west side of the Big Island in Keauhou, which is in the Kailua-Kona area. Our guests tell us that it is the 'BEST' condo they have stayed in across the Hawaiian Islands!
Listen to the surf as you go to sleep and wake-up in the morning. Watch Hawaiian paddle boats go by, see Dolphins and Sea Turtles in the surf and in the winter months, watch whales breach while sitting on your private lanai. The townhome is fully equipped and beautifully furnished with Hawaiian decor, including vintage photos and beautiful Hawaiian artwork. The kitchen has all of your cooking needs and more! We visit our property routinely to ensure it is well maintained - it is comparable to a 5-star hotel, but better as it has all of the amenities of a home including a full kitchen and a brand new front loading washer/dryer in the unit.
Since it is a townhome, there are not any units above or below you, so it is very private. There is a reserved parking spot, just steps away from the condo. The property is also very close to the large swimming pool area; the pool is good for young and old, as it has a very shallow end for little ones to play and a good area for lap swimming. Directly adjacent to the townhome is a grassy area and historical Hawaiian ruins, which is part of the charm of the Keauhou area, as the Hawaiian royalty chose this area for their home due to the trade winds, sunshine and beautiful location. Come stay where Hawaiian Kings and royatly have lived and experience a vacation of a life time!

Excellent communication between owner and management firm for condo. Owner was helpful throughout prior to booking with questions and activites available on island. Condo is well equiped compared to prior units I have stayed in. Location, location...awesome for those not wanting to be right in Kona. Resort is located off ali road, but far enough away you will not here traffic, even if outside enjoying the well groomed landscape. Love being right on the water with the lava wall in front. Easy walk to the beach and great location for having a rental car and quick access to beautiful coastline of kona. Must be prime location for local snorkeling charters. They stop outside the unit. We saw spinners dolfins almost every morning in front of unit. One day they even swam up close to the lava wall within 15 feet of shore. The master bedroom king is very, very comfortable, a very important item for me with a bad back. Often pay high dollar for a rental and then have a poor bed...not too hard and not too soft, should of look to see if it was one of those high dollar memory foam bed, sure felt like. Owner supplied several good quality masks and snorkels along with beach items including two boogie boards. Use masks but not boards. No need to bring large beach towels, she provides mats for laying on beach plus very good size beach towels. If I return to Kona again, I hope to stay here again, will not even spend the time searching other resorts. Didn't spend anytime at resorts so can't complement on amenties, however gate access easy and tennis courts in excellent condition and well lite at night. Pool is decent size compared to others I have seen at different resorts nearby
Love to share our paradise with our guests.
