Delightful Ocean/Beach Front - Budget Friendly with New Kitchen!

Bedrooms 2
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 - 10 nights


About the property

This oceanfront townhouse will easily and comfortably accommodate four guests.

Hawaii Tax ID: W-40905868-01

*INSTANT BOOK is AVAILABLE on reservations made more than 10 days in advance.*

Enjoy oceanfront views from your living room, kitchen, oceanfront bedroom and upstairs bathroom or while reading a book or enjoying a cool drink on your lanai. They don't allow units to be built this close to the ocean anymore - you can actually see turtles nibbling on the rocks or the yellow tangs in the aquamarine surf from your oceanfront bedroom. We supply everything you need indoors, designated parking 35 feet from front door, and this lovely 15+ acre complex boasts a newly refinished pool & deck area that's perfect for all ages AND three lovely and newly resurfaced tennis courts for which our guests can play for free. We're also less than 1/2 mile from world class snorkeling (Kahalu'u Beach Park; aka Snorkel or Turtle Beach) and less than 1/2 mile from the Keauhou Shopping Center where you'll find groceries, restaurants, medical care, theatre, drug stores and more. It's really perfectly wonderful!! Also, a complete kitchen remodel was just done in September 2016 so everything is brand new! (Pictures coming soon.) Still, our rates are set to entice those who might not normally budget for oceanfront. It's lovely and sweet!

Comparable refurbished and remodeled units run $25-$40 more per night during low season and $50-$75 more per night during Winter months. (See 145210 and 253989). This is a nice deal!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Reviewed in Trip Advisor on May 6, 2013

My husband and I with grandson Emilio had a most wonderful holiday at Kona, Hawaii. Staying at townhouse # 198 was wonderful. It is a very well situated unit. The ocean is not more than 25 feet away. Sitting out on the rear deck is a real pleasure. There was a beautiful plumeria tree which was in full bloom.

The view of the sun going down each night is truly wonderful. We even saw a whale in the distance. We loved to listen to the waves coming in and crashing on the rocks.

This unit is very well equipped with large screen TV/ cable, washer/dryer etc. As well the kitchen is well stocked up with everything needed. We appreciated having 2 bedrooms upstairs with a full bathroom. There is also a full bathroom downstairs.

My husband and I especially appreciated the warm welcome from Sandy & Jerry.

The complex itself is very well kept and includes a large outdoor pool.

We would recommend this unit to anyone who wants to have a restful holiday.

Another wonderful stay in this ideally situated townhouse

  • 5 of 5

Our time in Kona was marvelous and this townhouse is our go-to. Great location. We planned our Kona visit around the availability of this unit because we enjoyed it so much previously. We'll be back again! The immediate access to tide pools and secluded feel of the unit can't be beat. Morning coffee on the lanai, the surf and view from the main bedroom, an easy stroll to Kahalu'u snorkeling beach or walk to Keauhou shopping center, the Club landscaping and pool, Sandy and Kona resident manager Jeri...just a few of the reasons we make this our first choice for Kona visits.

Wonderful place to stay!

  • 5 of 5

This is just a great property. The description is right on! So close to the water and the turtles and yellow tangs are there to enjoy. Everything has been provided for you. The main floor is updated with that new kitchen and, although the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs may need some updating, they are pleasant, clean, and comfortable-the most important factors to me! The location can't be beat. It was so convenient for us. Kahuluu, a great snorkeling spot, is very close, and Place of Refuge for snorkeling and scuba diving is a short drive. It is super quiet there-except for the noise of the ocean outside your windows! Sandy was so helpful with my last minute request to stay there, and Jeri (on island manager) responded immediately when I needed some help. The two of them could not have been easier to work with.

Absolute Gem!

  • 5 of 5

We had a magical 4 night stay here in March, which was not nearly long enough.

The only reason I was able to afford this place is because it's not "remodeled", which in the end doesn't matter even a little bit because it's very clean, well stocked, well kept and comfortable. Plus, you don't need fancy furnishings to enjoy the star of the show -- the ocean!! The description is not a joke, this is practically a beach house. You get to enjoy the sound of the waves from almost everywhere in the house. There is no better place to enjoy a morning cup of coffee or an evening sunset than right from this little unit. Sleeping to the sound of the waves in the master bedroom was also a real treat. Beyond the ocean, the unit had everything we otherwise needed to enjoy our vacation: comfortable beds, clean linens, beach towels, beach chairs, toys, a cooler, cooking utensils, etc

Though we didn't get to meet the owner, we did get to meet Sandy, who helps the owner with online bookings. Sandy and her family were really lovely people, especially her daughter who took my 2 year old under her wing. It was very sweet and we enjoyed getting to know them.

We've stayed in other units at the Surf and Racquet club, but this is by far the best one overall. I really hope they don't touch it so that I can come back again; if it were to get remodeled it would be way out of my price range! I highly recommend taking advantage of this wonderful unit, I promise you won't regret it!

Owner's Response: Aloha, Sara: Thank you so much for the kind feedback! We try to set expectations appropriately so that people are happily surprised when they arrive and experience this wonderfully located unit. Clean with all the needed amenities plus that fantastic blue Pacific in the back yard and a friendly budget to correspond make both our guests and us happy. Now, the unit is likely going to see some renovation in the next year HOWEVER as a previous, very responsible guest...I'll keep the rates consistent for whenever YOU can come back. We enjoyed meeting and talking with the three of you and look forward to a next time!! Again, thanks for the honest review!! Sandy K.

Ocean lullaby every night put baby to sleep!

  • 5 of 5

This was perfect for our extended family of daughter, son-in-law, 10 mo. old grandson, my husband and myself. We really appreciated the privacy, the grounds, the direct access to tide pools, the onsite swimming pool, the short walk through private grounds (public access) to our favorite Kahalu'u snorkeling site. The sound of the ocean was amazing. It filled the townhouse and kept grandson snoozing soundly. Budget friendly and we appreciated that. The only bugs we encountered were the very tiny ants seeking moisture at bathroom sink faucets. We understand how difficult it is to keep all the critters out and for the price this was easily overlooked and wouldn't deter us from a return visit. We did keep all foodstuffs in secure plastic bins and were conscious of keeping the kitchen clean so as not to encourage cockroaches. We didn't encounter any! We loved the place. Fans and ocean breezes kept the TH cool and airy. Would definitely recommend. We'll be back and hope to use the master bedroom next time as we gave that over to daughter and family. That bedroom view was worth the price alone!
