We take pride in offering you an affordable and memorable Hawaiian holiday in our well kept and comfortable condo.
We hope to see you soon at the condo.
We fell in love with the Big Island back in 1998 and now have five condo's on the Big Island. We enjoy fixing them up and take pride in ensuring they are very well maintained, clean and well stocked - just like our own home!
Mike Watson purchased this condo in 2012
The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club offers complete privacy, quietness and secuirty. It is on over 17 acres of beautifully landscaped grounds. We like to stay active and enjoy the tennis, swimming and snorkeling on offer.
This unit is on the ground floor and has no stairs to climb. It has every imaginable feature one could want. The granite and Italian tile make it comprable to the $500 per night rooms up in Waikola - but without the wind or expensive nightly room rate. We love it and hope to spend our retirement here someday.
This was the first time to the Big Island for myself and the first time to Hawaii for my mother. We both enjoyed the condo for not only the luxury but the amenities. Being able to spread out and not be cramped into a small room was wonderful, especially after a full day of activities. We'd open the patio doors and enjoy the sound of the surf pounding the rocks. I even got quite a few photos of the surf spraying up and over the rock face. Thanks for the wonderful stay.
This was the perfect condo for our family while visiting the Kona Coast. The condo is very spacious and the views of the ocean were fantastic. We enjoyed three awesome sunsets on the lanai. The condo is beautifully decorated and very well maintained. Bedrooms and bathrooms were all up to date. The kitchen is also very up to date and well equiped. We enjoyed cooking dinner and enjoying our meals on the lanai.
The condo also had everything you needed for the beach, which impressed our two daughters (age 9 & 12): beach towels, beach mats, boogie boards, snorkel gear and cooler. Definitely used those items as we explored the beaches north and south of the condo. We greatly appreciated Mike's extensive email on what to see and do in the area as well as local amenities. It helped us find the Place of Refuge and Two Step (great snorkeling) in the south, Kahalu Beach (which is just down the road from the condo) for sightings of green sea turtles and some cool boogie board and swimming beaches up north (Hapuna & Kekaha Kai).
Our kids also enjoyed visiting the pool at the end of the day. The condo really had everything to make our stay on the Kona side of the island perfect. And to top it off, we loved being lulled to sleep each night by the crashing of the waves against the lava rocks
My husband and I recently returned from staying here and I just had to jump on and add my review!!! This condo was soooo amazing and I had to let others know what they are missing out on! We had the dreamiest vacation full of just about everything- relaxation, adventure, romance, fun, etc!! The condo was very clean and impressive and the property was very well taken care of and beautifully manicured. We enjoyed the comfort of it being a gated community. The condo was completely well stocked for everything we needed from kitchen tools to beach chairs to boogie boards! It was beautiful inside and out also and the back lanai was incredible. We spent many early mornings and sunsets out there enjoying the sounds, smells, and sights of the gorgeous ocean! We would recommend this to anyone looking for a blissful escape!
This condo was a fantastic find for us. It fit 4 adults very comfortably. The master bedroom and lanai overlook the water and has beautiful views of the sunsets. The second bedroom stays nice and cool on hot days, and has lots of closet space. The kitchen and living area is very comfortable and roomy. The kitchen is very modern with nice counter tops and nice appliances. Plenty of room for us to cook comfortably. Their condo is on the ground level, and makes you feel like you have a huge backyard with a lovely grass area and ocean! The pool in the complex is very clean and the tennis courts are in great shape. The downtown area is very accessible from this condo. The owners provide wireless access within their home, which is nice as well. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks to the owners for a wonderful stay with my mom and aunt!
My husband and I stayed last June (2013) for five nights - a few days after we got married in Kailua-Kona. The condo is in a great location in the complex along the ocean front - awesome sunsets and fresh sea breezes. The condo itself is very comfortable - we had all of the comforts of home, away from home. It's clean, well-maintained, and organized. I love to cook and the kitchen was well-stocked with basics and tools. The grocery and drug stores are near by, so we didn't have to venture too far to pick up food, snacks, and souvenirs. We walked over to Kahalu'u Beach and snorkeled there, it was a fairly easy walk.
This was our first experience renting a vacation rental and the communication with the owners Mike and Katrina made the process easy and straight-forward. This was also our first time to the Big Island - he was very helpful over the phone suggesting places to see and visit. Plus through emails, he acknowledged when our payments arrived and kept good records of our payments. His organization was GREAT since we had other wedding details we had to deal with before our arrival to the Big Island and the condo.
Mahalo Mike and Katrina for allowing us to stay! We highly recommend this condo and we do hope to visit again soon!
We love Mike's condo. We stayed for a month, and wish it could have been longer.
It is beautifully furnished, spacious, well-located (near Kahalu'u beach and the Keauhou shopping center), and a short distance to the ocean. Mike's cleaning people keep it spic and span, and he is friendly and easy-going with guests.
We hope we can find a way to come back, and will recommend his places in Kona to any and all.
