GREAT OCEAN VIEW! 3BR BBQ ON YOUR LANAI/SLEEPS 6+

Keauhou Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 3 Bedrooms (inclds Loft/Office) 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6-8 without sofa beds!))

Expansive ocean views of Kona sunsets on the 18th tee of the Kona Country Club golf course (check their website for more info).

Two bedrooms and a loft (with 3 additional beds). Our Country Club Villas home (#329) is spacious and quiet. The lanai offers a panoramic view, a large dining table and a private BBQ. This 3rd floor unit is just one flight up, and steps away from reserved off-street private parking.

Spectacular ocean views from the living room, master bedroom, lanai and kitchen. Our condo sleeps 6-8 people comfortably, without the hassle of a sofabed in the living room. You have two bedrooms downstairs (master has Cal King, guest has Queen) & two full baths (upgraded showers in both; no tubs).

Up the spiral staircase the spacious loft has additional sleeping with two twins AND a foldout futon in the gaming nook (Flat screen TV, X-Box & various games provided, or bring your own). There's also a tri-fold futon mat available for use if you want a child downstairs, as well as a pack-and-play and gate if you need to keep toddlers off the stairs.

Great for a romantic getaway, two or three couples, and families with children. This complex is surprisingly quiet, and many guests find that they have a pool (there are 3) all to themselves - when they're not at the beach! While the adults relax on the lanai or in the living room with their own entertainment the kids may play upstairs with the games, a separate flat screen TV w/DVD player, and 3 beds. Ceiling fans throughout enhance the pleasant Kona breezes.

In addition to the three pools (each with jacuzzi and ocean views - one just steps from this unit's entrance), there are also two tennis courts for guest use. The property’s tropical landscaping is well maintained and quite inviting for morning and evening walks. (This area of Ali'i drive is very popular for jogging, biking & walking.)

You will find the kitchen fully equipped with stove, microwave, dishwasher, blender, toaster, toaster oven, coffee maker/grinder, crock pot... and the list goes on! We have provided a complete selection of quality pots, pans and utensils for both kitchen cooking and the barbeque, as well as dishware for a crowd. Bar stools are at the kitchen counter and a comfortable dining area for the whole family is on the lanai.

Within the condo there are games to share and books to read. We provide your beach towels, a beach umbrella, beach & tote bags, a cooler (and blue ice), beach chairs, boogie boards & a large assortment of masks, fins and snorkel equipment. We hope to keep your luxury vacation on a family-friendly budget!

Dolphins, Humpback whales, Manta Rays, Turtles and much much more can be seen quite nearby. (During the winter whale watching season you may see the whales right from your lanai!) If any of your party are certified divers or you'd like our recommendation for great snorkel (free or with tours) experiences, please ask. The water underworld is one of Kona's greatest assets, and likely the best in the state. (A copy of The Big Island Revealed is in the condo for your perusal, as well as many books on local lore and history.)

Grab your sunscreen and head off to enjoy your slice of paradise! A short walk or very short drive to Keauhou Bay: (ocean tours, kayaks, SUP board rentals) and Kahalu'u Beach Park (the location of some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii - home to many sea turtles) Check out the comments for these locations online at Yelp!

The Keauhou Shopping Center (groceries, CVS/Long's, many restaurants - our favorite sushi AND pizza shops - coffee shop, cinema & shopping) is a five minute walk. (You’ll find guide brochures and printed material on activities and restaurants when you arrive at the condo. Also check out the Keauhou Honu Express shuttle for more family transportation options.)

Wi-fi, broadband internet, cable & phone are of course included. Please, no pets or smoking allowed in unit. (Smoking is OK only in the designated outside area, near the entrance.)

Guestbook comments from the owner
We had 12 days at this great condo for our family's end-of-summer vacation. With 3 teenagers, one of the bonuses was that when the adults wanted to relax & just enjoy the view and great lanai the kids could easily walk to Keauhou Bay: beach volleyball, ocean sport rentals, Stand Up Paddleboard, kayaks etc OR the shopping center (pizza, sushi, a great grocery store with all the interesting local foods as well as a deli). The hosts provided LOTS of beach equipment: we never rented snorkels, fins, boogie boards, etc!

At the south end of Ali'i Drive (Kona's ocean front street) it's quick & easy access to the highway that circumferences the whole island. The little town of Kainaliu (just 4 miles south) is quite fun for a shopping stroll and has some cute restaurants - plus live theater which we heard was quite good but didn't have the opportunity to attend. The theater building is an historical landmark - over 75 years old we were told!)

Amenities in the condo were great: good quality cookware etc, and a lanai table quite comfortable for our large group. (Actually there were a lot of kitchen "extras" we were surprised to find, having rented condos in other locations.)

The large flatscreen TV in the living area didn't get used a lot (because the activities, views and conversation kept us occupied), but some evenings the kids enjoyed the loft XBox and second flatscreen TV, without intruding on our peace & quiet below.

The whole experience was great for our family, and we recommend it highly!

Pat and Cyndy own Horseplay Equestrian Center, LLC - just a few miles south of the condo. Pat is an equine veterinarian and a Big Island resident since 1998. Cyndy moved to Kona in 1979, where she raised a family and has owned several businesses. She currently owns & manages Horseplay, boarding horses and teaching English riding.

Cyndy DeMeter purchased this condo in 2012

The Keauhou resort district offers some of the best access to ocean activities in Hawaii AND a quiet, private location. We have the pools, golf course, easy access to Keauhou Bay, Kahaluu Beach Park, Magic Sands (& more!) but never feel like we're in a densely populated resort area. It's GREAT!

The third floor enhances both the views and the tropical breezes, making it comfortable all year.

We enjoy playing, cooking and dining with family. This property has it all: wear the kids and grand kids out at the beach and return to BBQ on your own lanai. End the day with family games (provided), reading or a movie (50' flat screen in the living room - multiplex cinema within walking distance).

We never tire of swimming with the turtles and snorkeling at nearby Kahalu'u Beach. In our diverse island adventures our children (and grandchildren!) have learned the importance of protecting the reef and marine wildlife, so important to us all.

GREAT PLACE, AMAZING VIEW & TOTALLY HELPFUL CONTACT!

Great Place, Amazing View & totally helpful contact!
  • 5 of 5
I just got back yesterday and couldn't wait to review this condo! The place was incredible - centrally located easy access to everything, but away from the commercial/busy-ness of the hotel/shopping area. The view from the deck was priceless, the condo was clean, spacious and had everything we could need. We traveled with a 7 and a 3 year old, so we needed to ask questions of the local contact several times and she was AMAZINGLY HELPFUL! This was so completely worth the money.

WONDERFUL STAY, GREAT VALUE

  • 5 of 5
We were 6 adults: 1 couple (my husband and myself) and 4 singles (my mom, my brother, and my 2 adult sons). There was plenty of room for all; my mom slept in the guest bedroom, which was furnished with a queen bed. Her window was facing Alii Dr, but she did not have any issues with noise. We were past the "strip" so it was pretty quiet. The master bed was a king with attached bathroom. The bathroom did not have a door, but they did provide a tri-fold (maybe quad-fold) screen, which was fine. Upstairs in the loft there were 2 twin beds and a futon where the 3 guys slept. It was a little warm up there so we invested in a few box fans, which helped a lot.
The complex was very quiet. I had the impression that most of the people there were full or part-time residents rather than vacation rentals. There are quite a few rules regarding noise and restrictions for children, esp in pools. This wasn't an issue for us, but families with small children may not feel as welcomed here. I could be wrong, but the complex as a whole did not exude a child friendly atmosphere.
The condo was very accommodating and Cyndy was super helpful. She was in touch with us throughout the booking and planning phases, and again when we arrived, just to make sure everything was okay. She contacted me regarding a toaster which she had recently removed, and offered to bring a new one over. We noticed there was no toaster, but I wasn't going to bother with it until she contacted me about it. She had a new toaster the next day- very thoughtful.
The pictures of the ocean view do not do the property justice. It is so beautiful looking at the ocean from the lanai. The location of the condo was great. We were minutes away from the action on Alii, but far enough removed that we didn't have to worry about noise, traffic, or crowds. The area beaches were great. We were close enough to exceptional snorkeling at Captain Cook and Two Steps (my favorite), as well as Magic sands (there was a monk seal lazying on the beach) and Kahalu`u beach park where we saw sea turtles each time we went.
Other activities required a 2 hour drive, such as Volcanoes National Park, Mauna Kea summit, Kohala Coast, Waipio Valley, and Hilo's waterfalls. But that's the price you pay for staying in a beautiful, accommodating, and reasonably priced condo. Not worth complaining over if you ask me!
Bottom line: I would recommend this property in a heartbeat and would definitely stay here again if ever in Kona.

Owner's Response: Thank you, Beth! I am SO excited to hear you saw a monk seal at nearby Kahalu'u!! I always recommend that location because it's so close and a very easy entry for new snorkelers with turtles & fish quite abundant, but a monk seal is an extraordinary treat!
I apologize for the delay in delivering the new toaster. Pat and I had just stayed at the unit to make sure all is as it should be and found the existing toaster inefficient. I hope you're able to visit again soon!

CAN'T WAIT TO RETURN

Can't Wait to Return

My husband and I, along with our very good friends, spent 3 fantastic weeks in this condo. This was our 3rd. stay at the Country Club Villas, and a first for our friends. These condos are wonderfully located right on a golf course with ocean views. Currently the golf course is closed and schedule to reopen in late 2014 (we missed being golf critics:-).
Upon our arrival we were greeted by a lovely gift basket filled with coffee, fruit and snacks (Thank you Cyndy). We’re from Alaska, and therefore it’s all about the outdoor space, and this unit will not disappoint! The lanai has a nice BBQ grill, large patio table where we all enjoyed our morning coffee, whale watching, happy hour, evening sunsets or just playing cards. The condo itself was clean, spacious, and indoor furnishings, including beds and 2 baths made for a comfortable stay. The large screen TV pleased all of us on Super Bowl Sunday (Go Seahawks!!) This condo was well outfitted for the beach! It had everything we needed including snorkels, boogie boards, chairs, coolers, towels, etc. Our friends, who enjoy cooking, spent a lot of time in the kitchen preparing meals. The kitchen was well equipped. Their only complaint was the lack of lighting and a ceiling fan. I did mention to Cyndy, the owner, to consider installing a recess fan with a light kit. She was very open to this idea and would look into it.
Most of our days were spent by one of 3 pools (the two end pools are heated) where we enjoyed visiting with our neighbors, or on one of several golf course’s just a short scenic drive away. This is a great unit, Cyndy is wonderful to work with and we look forward to doing business with her again. Mahalo!

Owner's Response: So glad you and your friends enjoyed your stay Kona's beautiful winter! Thank you for the suggestions: we are looking at options for better lighting and an additional fan for the kitchen area. (I believe it will happen this month.) Aloha - Cyndy

A LITTLE BIT OF HEAVEN!

  • 5 of 5
Wow! This rental and it's owners exceeded all of our expectations! We spent the month of March in this lovely condo and felt so at home. The space was clean and well maintained. It was one of the best equipped rentals we have ever experienced, particularly the kitchen and linens provided. Also found lots of beach equipment, chairs, towels, etc.

We loved being on the third (top) floor not only for the amazing ocean view, but also for the breezes and sense of privacy and security. We felt totally comfortable leaving windows open at night to catch the breeze and hear the sounds of the ocean.
The surroundings are very quiet and the location is perfect being within walking distance of a grocery store, drug store, medical clinic and several restaurants.
My husband really appreciated the office space in the loft with a great wi-fi .
Falling asleep in the comfy king bed in the master to the breeze and sounds of the ocean was something we will miss.
Also enjoyed sunsets and all our meals on the spacious lanai.
We found Cyndy, the owner, to be very available and responsive to all our needs. We definitely plan to return to this little piece of heaven.

BEAUTIFUL VIEW, NICE OWNER BUT ROUGH AROUND THE EDGES

  • 3 of 5
The property is in a clean neighborhood of mostly retiree's. Which is not quite the place for a family, let a family with kiddos. Even though our kids are awesome kids we couldn't help the early mornings doing dishes & late nights coming home from our day out, since we were on vacation. One of the neighbors was an older lady who on the very 1st morning we were there scowled & said not so nice things when our girls were so excited to see a lizard. I guess children laughing is annoying ;). The property lacked updates, broken ice maker, peeling paint, missing closet doors & washer and dryer combo was in very, very rough state. Just the opening of the lid would wake up anyone within 20' of it. The kitchen was rough from handles coming off, to missing top for the blender (hard to make my morning protein shake) without a top & more. There was a plethora of plates, glasses & bowls though. There is NO A/C which was a problem especially for the guys. Cyndy was great to work with and offered for the doors to get replaced while we were there but assumed we wouldn't want the intrusion which I agreed. For the money I guess we expected more.

Owner's Response: Country Club Villas is a wonderful resort for families (as mentioned in many reviews) with 3 pools, 2 tennis courts and so many activities within walking distance. (It is also home to some retirees and many of our winter population are “snow birds”.) Though the property is more than 30 years old it is beautifully maintained.
We ask our guests to contact us immediately if they have a problem or even just want local information. If a situation arises our response is prompt, and with aloha.
Regarding this guest’s complaints: A replacement blender could have been delivered within hours, had I known of the disappeared lid. (The guest stayed 2 weeks.) The ice maker works fine. (The reviewer had a family with 5 children as well as extended family occupying 3 rental properties. Perhaps it couldn’t keep up?)
The 2’6” hall closet door was removed the day of their arrival for safety due to the mirrored surface having been cracked by the previous guest. We offered to replace it immediately.
The washing machine lid does squeak! It is between the two bedrooms (in the 2nd bath) and most guests choose to not use it during sleeping hours.
The property description accurately lists that there is no A/C. (We discussed it when we purchased and heeded management’s advice against it.)
And yes, there is a 2’ square section at the base of the wallboard affected by overspray from the shower that will be re-painted in June, if not before.
We take great pride in our property and the comfort of our guests. We live just minutes away. To further assure the quality of the unit and evaluate the amenities, we stay a few nights intermittently and address any perceived problems promptly.

This condo was perfect for our one month stay. The kitchen items are quality and every gadget is there. The BBQ on the lanai was convenient and worked perfectly. We appreciated the snorkel gear, and ice chest. Plenty of beach towels and even 2 beach chairs. The desk in the loft was great for our lap top to keep up with e-mails. The unit was very clean and the towels and linens are top grade. Large flat screen TV to enjoy channel 1000 (a continually running documentary of the islands with fantastic photography). Will return next year.
