Everything has already been said in the previous reviews in English : this place is perfect! So I'll just go on in French.
Cet appartement de particulier à particulier est absolument parfait pour des vacances relaxantes sur Big Island. La propriétaire est adorable et très disponible, elle répond aux e-mails en quelques minutes.
L'endroit est un magnifique duplex dans une résidence très calme, dans un très beau cadre au milieu d'arbres et de plantes exotiques, la résidence dispose d'une belle piscine. En bas se situe la chambre (très grande) disposant d'une terrasse, la salle de bain/toilettes et la buanderie. En haut, un grand salon avec cuisine américaine toute équipée est complété d'une superbe terrasse avec vue sur l'océan et le coucher de soleil.
Un vrai bonheur que de se réveiller au chant des oiseaux exotiques, et d'admirer le coucher de soleil chaque soir depuis la terrasse, avant de se faire du poison frais au barbecue.
L'appartement était très propre et incluait tout ce dont on peut avoir besoin, tous types d'ustensiles de cuisine, produit vaisselle, lessive, serviettes de plage, body boards, glacière, flûtes à champagne... mais aussi huile et condiments dans les placards, ce qui peut dépanner.
Nous avons également vu un lit bébé, ce qui peut intéresser les familles.
La propriétaire a même mis à notre disposition un sapin de Noël (faux, bien sûr, mais très joli) car nous y étions durant les Fêtes!
A noter également, toutes les fenêtres et portes sont équipées de moustiquaires, on peut donc dormir tranquilles avec la fenêtre ouverte (pas de clim, mais les nuits sont assez fraîches).
Keauhou est très bien située pour visiter Big Island - une voiture est indispensable - loin de l'agitation de Kona mais suffisamment près pour y aller dîner, près également de plusieurs spots de snorkeling. Egalement tout près d'un centre commercial avec supermarché, où un marché local a lieu le dimanche matin.
Je ne peux que recommander cette location, nous espérons vraiment y retourner dans les années à venir!
First of all i would like to say that my communications with Miriam were so timely, fast and so pleasant. It was so reassuring right of the bat knowing we were well attended to.
Our favourite place was the Lanai off the living room overlooking the tree canopy with the sound of the birds early in the morning and the beautiful sundown views that never ceased to amaze us. The condo was well appointed, clean and in a quiet development. The shopping center was within walking distance and the condo was nice and central for all our outings.
It was our home away from home and thoroughly enjoyed the place, the quiet and nature all around us.
Thank you so much and we love to come back one day.
This condo was perfect in every way. From initial contact with the owners we knew we had picked a good one. The owners were attentive and quick in their replies. The condo was exactly as advertised, and at no time did we say "if only it had", because it had everything. We cooked a lot at home using the grill nightly. The location was perfect and the short walk or drive to the grocery store and mall was so convenient. The complex is very quiet at night, and an evening jump in the pool couldn't be beat. All beach equipment was provided; boogie boards, chairs, umbrella and even a great picnic basket and cooler. I honestly cannot say enough great things about this place.
Stunning Views from 2 large patios - sunsets everyday that last for 45 minutes - early evening with wine and dinner on the patio/lanai - early rising with the sounds of tropical birds and geckos - home and comfortable feeling - very clean and well kept.
Honestly, I could go on and on about this place but If you want to relax and take in Hawaii then this place is amazing. They have everything from dried herbs to boogie boards, you really do not need to bring anything. The owner is a peach, super friendly and fast with responses and accommodated a last minute request to extend the stay. If you're looking for a party place to rage out in and stay up all night long causing a ruckus then this is NOT the place for you - come to chill and feel at home and you'll fall in love.
Rent paddle boards and paddle the bay, swim with dolphins and snorkel
Go to the beaches - Kua Bay Beach/Hapuna Beach/69 Beach - some of th best Ive seen
Take the $2 trolley from the near by shops into town, open air bus with charm.
To sum it up, one of the best VRBO rentals I have ever done, will be back........ Mahalo
Coming to this paradise was worth every minute of the long 18 hour flight to Hawaii. When we arrived we quickly adopted to the life here - getting up with the birds, having a great breakfast on the upper lanai, going out sightseeing, snorkeling, exploring the island, finding great places with excellent food and then just coming back home to watch the beautiful sunset.
The condo itself is really pleasant and offered everything we needed and reflected perfectly how it was described. It became quickly a home for us. The charming and quiet environment with the super nice view over the tropical garden to the sea is a real nice place to relax and enjoy. The Keauhou Resort has been ideal for us - the supermarket was very close, so we did not waste much time in getting everything we needed. It was so nice to drive up Ali'i drive to Kona for a drink or coffee, or just for walking around. Jackie Rays restaurant is a good recommendation to have a nice lunch or dinner, and the pizza at the Kona Brewery is excellent too, a very nice place to eat. We also very much enjoyed exploring the island - driving up north to the fantastic Hapuna beach or further up to the impressive coastline with the beautiful valleys, seeing the huge Ranches, having a great IPA in the local microbrewery in Waimea. The variety of nature is quite remarkable, of course the volcanos and the park in the south are impressive, but this is not everything. Not far away the tropical forests give a such a contrasting experience. Hilo is just a two hours drive away from Kona taking the Saddle Road and beside the Waterfalls, we found the tropical botanical garden a few miles north of Hilo a real beautiful place.
There is so much to see on the island more than we can list here and it is certainly better to read the guidebook.
Thanks very much Rudi and Miriam for sharing your paradise with us.
viele Grüße aus Deutschland
Hoffentlich können wir bald mal wieder hierher kommen! Mahalo!

We just got back for 2 weeks on the big island. After much deliberation and numerous emails back and forth we made our leap of faith and booked this wonderful condo. After cruising around the island and seeing some of the other properties we were looking at we thrilled with the choice we made.
Keauhou is perfectly located for exploring the Kona coast as well as the rest of the island. Costco is close enough if you are a member for the cheapest gas on the island and the cheapest food, downtown Kona is a 10-15min drive and one of the best snorkeling beaches in the island is right on your door step.
The complex itself is obviously well run and you can see there is pride of ownership by all owners. The pictures of the view don't do the view justice. The upper lanai was where we spent every morning and night. Our descision to go with a view over being closer to the ocean was the best choice we could have made
Probably the only negative for us was that the bed was a little too firm for us but this was solved by making our own pillow top out of the blankets in the closet in the bed room. But to be honest this was a very minor thing and wouldn't stop us from staying here again.
From start to finish Miriam and Rudy were a joy to deal with and we can't say enough good things about them and their condo.
A few random highlights for us...Ocean Adventures night snorkel with the Manta Rays. Volcanoes National Park, even though there was no lava flowing. Da Poke Shack on Al'ii dr, a must stop for lunch one day. Sam Choy's, great food and amazing view. A Bay beach, great snorkeling is you walk south down the beach a ways. Mauna Kea beach, there are 40 parking spots for the public at this beach so get there early. Just an amazing beach and the limited public access is what makes this an awesome beach. Decent snorkeling and great boogie boarding if you are just learning.
