Why Sandy K. chose Kona Coast

Keauhou is the best weather location of the island of Hawaii....least wind, least rain, most sunny days.....it provides a sense of old Hawaii charm/calm with the amenties enjoyed for daily living.

We return annually to find some changes, but the Aloha spirit remains.

What makes this condo unique

Our home provides a sense of closeness to the sea, watching the seasonal whales, spinner dolphins, sunsets, kayakers from our lanai, frontroom or master bedroom, while at the same time allowing us a large variety of activities just outside our front door...including walking, tennis, pool, golf, shopping, tours.

We feel fortunate to be in such a great location.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Aloha Sandy,



We are just about to leave the condo and head out to Maui. Just wanted to let you know we absolutely LOVED it here on the Big Island. There was so much to see and do and the weather was perfect! The condo was lovely, the location for us was great, and it had everything we could possibly need! We would definitely stay in this particular unit again and do plan on coming back.



Thank you so much for all your help with this booking. You were a pleasure to deal with!

Such a relaxing Oasis

  • 4 of 5

Located within a quiet gated resort, this gem of a condo was on the ocean - so close ocean spray would condense on the lanai screen at night. We were surprised that the place was actually larger than anticipated making our stay that much more enjoyable. The lack of AC wasn't an issue as we left the lanai doors and windows open during the night with fans pulling in the cool night air (80's during the day, 70's during the night). The kitchen was fully stocked with fun cookware and dishes, this foodie was very pleased. A view of the ocean while cooking was spectacular and eating on the lanai was a regular event so we could enjoy watching the birds and ocean waves...even saw spinner dolphins! The beds were comfortable, linens nice quality. Over-sized artwork adorns the walls, making the condo very homey with a lived in feel. We would fall asleep with the ocean waves and awake with the chirping of birds (Nature lovers delight). The master bedroom opens to the living space via three large oriental papery sliding doors - we thought this was great, but might not be for some folks that require more privacy. The TV and electronics are a little dated but realized after we left that we didn't use any of them - the lanai was where we spent the majority of our evenings and all our breakfasts. The condo, since it is on the ocean and near the salty air, has some rust marks on a couple light fixtures and a couple oddly locking doors, but this just added to the overall character. This location is less than 5 minutes from the Kahaluu beach park which is an excellent snorkeling and surfing area. 5 min the other direction is KTA market where you will find Poke and other fresh local ingredients for your favorite recipes. We loved this condo, the location, and look forward to returning someday. My only hope upon our return is so see replacement artwork in the master bedroom - it's become very faded.

If you love to be lulled to sleep by the ocean, cook some great meals, and stretch out and relax - this is your oasis. Mahalo!

The Perfect Place to Stay

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo at the Surf & Racquet Club - everything had been thought out so carefully - from the decor in side, the wide open feeling which made a relatively small unit look and feel spacious, to the kitchen amenities and the canvas windows that rolled down on the decks for privacy. Thank you especially for the two floor fans as they were very needed during the heat of the day, and at night.

Anything we had questions about was answered immediately by the wonderful manager and her assistant. We'd highly recommend this place - and Sandy - when planning a trip to Hawaii.

GREAT CONDO in a GREAT LOCATION

  • 5 of 5

Just spent a delightful week at this homey condo. Hated to leave!! Early check in was appreciated. Roomy, comfortable, clean. Well equipped kitchen; comfortable beds. Looks just like the photos - fabulous ocean views. It was great to fall asleep to the pounding surf and wake up to chirping birds. Initial problems with the Internet were quickly fixed by Charli, the handiman; a simple reboot was all it took 😄. Located in a well maintained complex with a great pool, tennis courts and bbq grills. Very close to a KTA grocery store and some very good restaurants close by. However, we found ourselves enjoying cocktails on the lanai and home cooked meals most nights! The outside electric grill worked well. We would love to return for another relaxing experience by the ocean and would definitely recommend this property to others.

Great location

  • 3 of 5

We generally liked our stay here, as the ocean front view is hard to beat. It was great having a morning coffee and afternoon drink on the lanai, watching the ocean. The complex itself is nice too, with a deep pool and tennis courts, as well as pretty landscaping.

What we didn't like as much was the quality of the condo. Only the patio doors in front worked properly, the sides ones didn't open and the 2nd bedroom windows didn't lock. Pretty old stuff. And although the furniture was clean, the whole place is seriously outdated. Which is not that bad but it irked us that we had these strict rules posted everywhere/send to us, feeling like we had to be super careful with everything. Also, the wifi was super slow. Thank goodness I found an alternative network.

So although our stay was good and the condo comfortable, I am not in a hurry to rebook.

Owner's Response: Aloha, Doriene, Thank you very much for your recent stay and constructive feedback. We'll contact the handyman about the doors and windows - both should be made to work properly. Unfortunately, the amazing location next to and overlooking the ocean works against us when it comes to maintenance. The salty air makes corrosion/rust a frequent visitor and impacts EVERYTHING to do with metal. We'll get them fixed though. And, the sun (which we love as a rule) combined with the salty air just ages everything faster than we'd like but we'll certainly take a look and see what might be improved. Again! :) There's always something! :) I'm sorry the notes seemed problematic...the intent is really to be helpful. We get many calls and questions and try to be proactive with information wherever possible. The most important thing for us is for our guests to have a good time and find a clean, well maintained unit that they can enjoy for their vacation. I hope you enjoyed the welcome treat and I'm glad the views did NOT disappoint. We'd be delighted to welcome you back anytime and hope that the windows, doors are working properly (these require ongoing maintenance). With much mahalo, Sandy K.

Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

We returned from staying in this lovely condo about two weeks ago and I am ready to go back as soon as I can. It truly looks like the photos and seems very spacious and comfortable. The kitchen is packed with any and everything you might need (and then some). The sounds of the birds and the surf pounding against the rocks is so relaxing that we didn't want to leave for very long and ended up cooking in or bringing back our food to enjoy on the large and spacious lanai. The dishwasher would not close and the internet did not work initially but a quick phone call brought Charlie, the handman, and his lovely wife over quickly to fix the problems. The condo was very clean . The location is very handy to the Keauhou shopping center and we loved the KTA supermarket.

We will not hesitate to stay again.

Lovely Large Condo in Great Location!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous 10 days in this condominium. Were kindly allowed a bit early access when we arrived - everything spotlessly clean - bright, roomy, comfortable. The lanai is just awesome....this building is one of the closest to the water and we really enjoyed the surf crashing on the volcanic rock out front. One night was a bit stormy and it felt like the bed shook with some of the crashes!! We had fabulous sunsets (think Green Flash) and moonstruck moon sets (full moon while we were there) that were perfect. The two bedrooms had comfortable beds with quality linens. The kitchen had all the dishes, pots/pans, glasses, utensils and small appliances you might need. Some spices available. There were tennis rackets and balls to use on any of the 3 courts available. No snorkeling gear so bring your own. Ceiling fans in all the rooms, plus two standing fans - it did get warm but the fans made it comfortable. Great location with easy access to either Alii drive into Kona town, or, 11 North or South to begin sight seeing. The airport is but a 20 minute drive. Great Island made ice-cream at a small shop as well as a grocery store, Longs and some small restaurants within 5 min car scoot. Loved our stay and would happily rent again! For adventure, we would recommend the nighttime manta ray adventure - we went with Hang Loose and were very happy with the experience!
