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!

Love to share our paradise with our guests.
Roger and Kathryn Hall purchased this townhome in 2003
We were extremely impressed with the position of the condo near the water, thoroughly enjoying falling asleep to water lapping on the shoreline. The facilities provided everything we could have wanted (cooking, cleaning, games, sports, TV) and the nearby shopping centre was very handy. This was an ideal base to travel around Big Island. Having a car was a must. A beautiful touch with the hamper was really appreciated. If you don't mind feeling like you're in a home rather than a hotel, this is perfect.

Katherine, We enjoyed staying at your townhouse. It was very clean, well stocked, and a great location. We did not need the air conditioner in early June and the ceiling fans throughout the townhouse were perfect. The townhouse was as described in the listing. When we come back to Kona we would definitely stay at this property again. The location was perfect. Here are a few activities our family of four loved:
- The Island Breeze luau at the Sheritan was suprisingly fun. Good food and good entertainment.
- The shaved ice at the Scandinavia Shaved Ice store in downtown Kona became our daily treat. The large shaved ice is the size of an adult head and is impossible to finish.
- The family loved the ocean kayeking with Ocean Safaries. Great ride at a fair price. We even were able to jump off a few cliffs as well.
- Snorkeling at Pu?uhonua O H?naunau is free and was the best in Kona. It is so much better than the charter boat experience to Captian Hook. We swam with a turtle and saw spinner dolphins.
- The beach at Hapona Beach was beautiful but gets very windy in the afternoon.
- Kekaha Kai State Park beach was our favorite. The sand was soft and white, the water beautiful.
- A quick and pleasant treat was the Hulihe`e Palace musuem tour in downtown Kona. It provided just the right amount of Hawaiin history.
Thank you so much!

This place was phenomenal! Very clean, convenient (I love to snorkel), unbelievable scenery from the back door! Though we paid for the air conditioner, we never used it, even in July. We did use the attic exhaust fan for a few minutes each evening, and then slept with the windows open and the fans on low. The surf was loud but not disturbing. Everything we needed was there, and with the washer/dryer you can bring very few clothes, a real plus with avoiding the checked luggage fee. Really comfortable beds, TV in each room which my husband and daughter loved after a week without on Kauai. Also, a great book collection on the Big Island came in very handy in learning about the history and culture of what we wanted to see, plus insider tips. Chairs, towels, ice chests are all there- bring your own or rent snorkel gear. It's best to have it fitted to you anyway, and renting it is cheap. If we didn't have so much to go see and do, the place was so comfortable we would have been fine just enjoying the condo and its location. You can't beat the price, and feeding yourself saves so much $$ plus you eat in a more healthy manner with fresh fruit and vegetables. I spoke to owner before I rented and she was very friendly and helpful. If we are lucky enough to go back to Hawaii, this is where we'll stay.
Volley Ball Courts are available. Groceries, drugstore, boutiques, restaurants and Movie Cinema all within walking distance from the condo. Kona Trolley is also available to take you into downtown Kona and nearbye areas. Farmers Market held weekly at the Keauhou Shopping Center. Hawaiian paddle boats and Kayaking are also available in the area.
