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 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!!!
Cyndy is the best host of this lovely condo! Our family had such a beautiful time! Being able to see the ocean and the ocean breeze made our stay so amazing!!!
We had a wonderful time at Cyndy's property. The place was comfortable and spacious, with multiple places to sleep and all manner of entertainment. She has stocked games, books, movies, internet and television, various sizes of flippers, snorkel masks, boogie boards, coolers, umbrellas, chairs etc.....these accoutrement was especially nice for someone who doest want to break the bank renting equipment! The grill on the lanai was a nice touch, as we grilled fresh fish and veggies nightly, and spent much time just being comfortable as a family on the lanai sipping wine! Thank you Cyndy, what a wonderful trip! I highly recommend this place to future renters!
This condo was perfect for our family of seven. We've never seen a better-equipped kitchen. Plenty of beach towels, beach chairs, and other necessities. More than twice the amount of snorkel gear we needed. Everybody was perfectly equipped. We love snorkeling and the snorkel gear, along with the proximity of some outstanding snorkeling spots, made our week-long stay unforgettable. The pools in the complex were fantastic as well. All contact with the manager was outstanding. Thanks Cindy.
This is our second time to stay in this unit and we absolutely love it.
About the location: Keauhou is a fantastic location with easy access to all the activities found in the short jaunt to Kailua-Kona. Yet it's out of the traffic that sometimes overwhelms the Alii area. There's shopping across the street, some of the best snorkeling on island is a 5 minute walk, its just minutes from the Manta Rays at the Sheraton, and it has easy access to the highway to get anywhere quickly. We really like Keauhou.
About the condo: The property is well kept and very quiet. There are three pools with all the amenities, tennis courts, and plenty of parking. This condo is a spacious three bedroom with everything anyone could need for a fantastic stay. It has spectacular views of the ocean from just about every corner of the place and the lanai is huge. We've eaten every meal on the beautiful lanai watching the ocean and the sunsets and listening to the birds and breeze through the palm trees and the occasional golfer. There's a barbecue on the lanai (pretty rare in most condo rentals) which makes for great family time--you don't have to walk to a common barbecue area schlepping all your food all that way. You just step out the slider and fire up the barbecue and enjoy. The kitchen is stocked with all the dishes and cookware anyone could need as well. The master bedroom also opens to the lanai which makes it just a beautiful place to sleep.
About the owner: Cyndy shows so much care for this place that it's nicer than my home. She keeps the place in perfect shape and there are always improvements being done. She treats you as though you were her guest rather than a renter and the communication leading up to, during, and following a stay is above and beyond. She is a true joy to deal with. We're looking forward to our next time to stay here.
This was our second visit to this unit. The first visit was only 2 weeks and we needed much longer...so this time we stayed an entire month. The unit is clean and has everything you will need to enjoy the island. We usually eat all of our meals in the unit. The BBQ is great on the lanai. You can't beat the sunset views.
The golf course is open now so it is fun to watch the people putt on the 17th hole and tee off on the 18th.
One of the things we enjoyed the most is the peace and quiet. Most of the time the pools are empty and it is so peaceful at night.
Plan on coming back!
Condo owners also run Horseplay Equestrian Center, a riding school and boarding stable just 10 minutes away. Day camps are run during summer and school breaks. Vacation sessions may be scheduled for adults and children in advance.
There is a therapeutic riding program also at this facility (Therapeutic Horsemanship Hawaii)
