If you’re looking for the perfect spot in Kona for your Big Island vacation, you’ve found it with our owner-rented home in the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club. Our 3 bed – 3 bath condo is centrally located in Kona just 10 minutes from Kailua and 20 minutes from the Keahole International Airport (KOA) in the town of Keauhou. Together, this location, the Kona Surf and Racquet Club complex and our recently upgraded unit offers one of the best vacation values on the Big Island.
Our two story third floor property was recently renovated and has wood floors throughout the living area, granite kitchen counter tops and all new furniture providing a beautiful setting for your vacation. The unit is less than 100 steps from the ocean and right next to beaches for snorkeling and sunbathing. Shopping, golfing and hiking are within walking distance and lighted tennis courts are on site.
High speed wireless Internet, cable TV and Hawaiian music on the stereo are standard as well.
There are eight large overhead fans (at least one in each room) to keep you cool on the warmest afternoons and the area is designed for good airflow with vaulted ceilings throughout. Of course, the lanai will provide the “coolest” area of all and has electric screens to block the indirect afternoon sun as well as an overhead fan.
We’ve also equipped the condo with everything you need for a great time including a full, well equipped kitchen, refrigerator with an automatic ice maker, dishwasher, tennis gear, beach mats, beach chairs, boogie boards and fishing gear.
If you’d like some help with what to do in the area, we’d be happy to provide a list of our favorite things to do on the Big Island.
Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club: Lying on the ocean side of Alii Drive, the KKSRC is a gated complex consisting of oceanfront, fairway and garden condominiums. Our unit has a beautiful garden view with a lot of privacy relative to many others in the area. All units have oceanfront access providing an opportunity to stroll along the coast, fish or watch beautiful sunsets just 150 steps from your the unit. The shoreline also provides good elevation to watch the whales on their annual visit to the islands during the winter months.
Although much of the waterfront is lava, there is easy walking access to a sand beach with tide pools just north of the resort area and the reef just off shore provides good shore fishing opportunities as well.
The resort is directly on the ocean and as all shoreline in Hawaii is public you will have the same access to the beach and shoreline as those renting “oceanfront” units so you’ll feel free to walk anywhere on the grounds or the adjacent properties to the north where an archeological project is taking place.
At the center of the resort complex are three lighted tennis courts, a large pool and a covered pavilion while 3 common grilling areas are provided around the grounds. The tennis courts are guest-managed on a first come first served basis and basic tennis equipment is available in the unit. We’ve rarely seen all three courts in use at the same time and night tennis is both cooler (temperature) and cooler (more fun). Adjacent to the tennis courts is a large L-shaped pool with one leg of the L built for small children and the other for swimming. Showers and restrooms are available poolside.
