About Diane and Alex Balberde
We have always loved the Big Island as Alex was born and raised on the Hilo side of the island. We were fortunate being able to purchase our condo once being retired so we could spend as much time as possible in our "home away from home." We manage our condo so please call us with any questions you may have.
Diane and Alex Balberde purchased this Condo in 2000
Why Diane and Alex Balberde chose Kahaluu-Keauhou
We know the island fairly well and have stayed in many resorts and Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club is by far the very best.
What makes this Condo unique
Being ground floor just steps from the ocean with a magnificent view is unbeatable.

My husband and I spent five great days in this excellent condo. As other reviewers have noted, the condo really does look as good as the photos. The location is perfect — in a quiet part of the complex, right next to the ocean (great for enjoying the sunset on the lanai) and near a good supermarket and snorkeling beach. Everything in the condo is clean and well maintained, with the washer and dryer an added benefit. The kitchen is well stocked for cooking. There is no air conditioning, but by leaving windows open the temperature was quite comfortable at all times. The hosts were very accessible to answer questions and allowed us to extend our stay by one night when we had to cancel our planned visit to Volcano. We would love to return and stay longer!
Winter break in Big Island
We had a good time staying at their condo. The location is good. There is grocery store next block. The condo is facing the Pacific Ocean. The house was clean with plenty of supplies. We used their cooler and snorkeling gears. Seeing the sunset and listening to rock-crashing waves were priceless.
Best View Bar None
The unit is a little outdated but overall not bad. There were little flies in the bedroom that seemed to crawl all over the dressers but it may be the time of year, not sure as I’ve never been to this island before. Loved loved loved the location (about a 5-10 min drive to Kona depending on traffic) Grocery store close by as well. The view and the lanai were out of this world. I was with my mom and we would sit with our wine every night and watch stunning sunsets right on our lanai. They have chairs, umbrellas and boogie boards there as well as a couple of coolers for going to the beaches. The pool was great too. If i was rating on the view, lanai and privateness of this unit it would get a 5 star for sure.
The biggest issue I had is the cleanliness of the unit. Now I;m not the cleanest person on the earth nor am I a clean freak but there were certain areas where the dust was so thick I’m sure its done, if at all maybe once a year like behind the bed and dressers and in the closets and the blinds. When you have to pay a cleaning fee......I feel a little jipped and as i expect a little cleaner than what I got. Because it is a cleaning company involved, the owners may not be aware of the quality of work being done. But the sheets and towels were clean, the tub and toilets were clean and for the most part the kitchen was clean as well.
i would stay here again for the view alone and bring more essential oils as the flies didn’t bother me but I had my essential oils on my dresser lol.
Wonderful location & even better than advertised
We have stayed in a number of condos on various Hawaiian Islands and would have to rank this one at the top of our list. The Island location, the privacy and certainly the relaxing open air view from either the living area or the patio are excellent. The condo is very well equipped in all respects and contributes to a comfortable stay. To start the day by opening both walls of sliders to the beautiful ocean views and having a leisurely breakfast on the patio makes it difficult to start the day's activities. Needless to say WE ENJOYED OUR VISIT and would like to make a return visit.
to hot and humid could use better light in kitchen
We're so sorry that you found the lighting to be inadequate in the kitchen. We will definitely look into this.
As far as the weather goes ... we have no control over Mother Nature.
Had a wonderful stay the location was great.
We could have spend the whole week sitting on the lanai. No AC but the temperature was comfortable even with the very high humidity as long as you slept with the windows open. This was 5 minutes from a great snorkle trip with Fairwind; and 3 minutes from a nice small beach that is also great for snorkling. Property was clean and inviting with a great ocean view and the beds were comfortable. This was away from the tourist hub in kona which suited us perfectly.
