|Minimum Stay||6 - 7 nights|
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 4 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.)

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.
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!
We had a 17 night stay recently and were happy from the time we walked in. The condo was very homey and comfortable. Everything we needed was there and then some. Fully equipped kitchen with a much needed blender, ice maker, coffee pot, kettle...list goes on. The rooms were spacious and the master bedroom has two lanai doors giving a nice breeze into the bedroom to make for a comfortable temperature. We enjoyed many meals on the huge lanai and enjoyed having some drinks as we watched the golfers on the 17th green and the 18th tee box on the golf course. The ocean is a ways away but the views are amazing and the sunsets were stunning every night. The condo is fully stocked with all the water and beach stuff you need, plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, snorkel gear and coolers. Everything about this condo was convenient, it is located 2 minutes away from a shopping center that has grocery store, drug store, restaurants and even a movie theater if that`s what you`re up for. Another bonus was having our own bbq to use on our lanai. We have stayed at other condo complexes and they had `community ``bbq`s`` for the complex to use, making it very impersonal and inconvenient.
We will definitely consider this condo again when we return to the Island.
I stayed at Cyndy's Condo with a friend and her family in October. Cyndy was a fantastic host; she promptly answered all inquiries, and even brought by additional beach toys for the kids while we were there! The condo was a good size for us (family of 4 and 1 individual) with 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms, and the loft for the kids. The condo is clean, fully stocked with all the kitchen necessities (pots and pans, dinnerware, and condiments), and beach accouterments we could have wanted (towels, water shoes, snorkel gear (though we ended up renting from Snorkel Bob's to get higher quality equipment), chairs, umbrellas, cooler, blue ice, boogie boards, and beach toys).
The condo is a bit too far from downtown to make walking possible, but that worked well for us since we wanted to be in quieter area. The condo is a short walk from a small beach with decent snorkeling, and about a mile walk/drive from one of the best snorkeling locations within Kona/Kilauea area (Kahaluu Beach Park). We were in a convenient location for all the exploring we wanted and would highly recommend staying at this condo. Our only complaints were that the coffee maker seemed to be broken and the shower head in the master bathroom was a bit old, but these would certainly not prevented us from staying here again!
Thanks again Cyndy, you made our vacation a breeze!!
Our stay was delightful. We found the apartment well appointed and as advertised. There was plenty of space for us and our two teenaged boys. The boys especially loved the pool, which is very close to the unit. We found the beach chairs and boogie boards convenient for beach trips.
We had some minor issues during our stay, but communication was fast and our hostess responsive, so the items were quickly resolved and our stay comfortable.
We really enjoyed staying here. Cyndy was very helpful, gracious, and informative. The condo was spacious enough for our family of 7. It had everything you needed for the beach and the kitchen was well stocked with basic ingredients and condiments, which added further value to the reasonable price.
The location was central to many of the must-see locations on Kona. I especially appreciated being able to walk to the shopping center for groceries.
We would definitely stay here again and recommend this place to our friends.
The unit was just as pictured. The view is awesome....I figured it wouldn't be as close to the ocean as in the pictures, but the ocean view is great. I imagine in the winter you can sit and enjoy some whale watching. There is a great place for snorkeling just a mile away....we even walked there...which had some fantastic shave ice. The grocery is less than 1/2 a mile away....and the pizza place next door to the grocery is quite good...fresh ingredients/real dough.
The unit itself is not fancy...but it is nicely put together.....and has a wonderful airflow with the front and back doors open. Plus that allows the wonderful floral fragrance to blow through. My sister hand another unit that was more upgraded but this suited us better...and we had better airflow. Beds were all comfortable. The circular stairs were big enough you could easily go up and down them (not too tight like some).
It was great having a washer and dryer in the unit. And, there is a lot of equipment available....might not all be in top condition but still nice to have chairs, some kids life jackets, boogie boards, noodles, water shoes, coolers, etc.
Cyndy is super nice and easy to work with. All in all a great unit with a great view in an easy location.
We had a wonderful stay at Cyndy DeMeter's residence at the Country Club Villas. For a family this will give you ample space for a large group and the kids get their own space in the upstairs loft. As my father kept saying "this is a Million Dollar view!" My family and I will be visiting the Big Island again and will be staying here! Aloha and mahalo nui loa Cyndy!!!
