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 unit is clean, oceanfront and still a work in process for ongoing renovations and priced to be 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.

Wonderful site right above the ocean with cove view. Very nice amenities-pool, planting, exterior.

  • 4 of 5

Enjoyed two weeks with terrific views and sounds of the ocean. Clean with lovely linens. The location on the water means that salt water is part of the experience! Very helpful owner.

fabulous location for sunset viewing at oceanside

  • 4 of 5

Our favorite feature of this condo was being able to watch fabulous sunsets right from the lanai as well as watching the tides come and go. We could see fish in the water from second floor of this location.

We also enjoyed the beautiful landscaping throughout the whole Surf and Racquet Club Complex which was very well maintained and bonus beautiful Christmas lighting.

Staff were helpful and made us feel welcome. Thank you Sandy and Geri.

Very nice house so close to the beach!

  • 5 of 5

I stayed here together with my parents and my girlfriend. My girlfriend was competing in the ironman, and it was a very good spot close to Kona, but yet far enough to avoid the Kona buzz.

The house is very well maintained, and totally equipped including beachstuff, towels, kitchen gear,... everything :). We enjoyed the oceanviews and nature very much.

Our personal Shang-ra-la

  • 5 of 5

We think that the fact that we have returned three times after our initial stay should tell anyone how we treasure this place. It has all that is advertised and if you investigate it has more. For instance we discovered petroglyphs on the lava tide pools when the tide was out. We watched local fishermen with their nets and of course, the natural beauty of the location, all from our lanai. The only warning is that it can get warm if the trade winds aren't blowing. Sandy, we'll be back. Thank you for your considerate hospitality.

Security Deposit Refunds are set to automatically refund within 7-14 days of check-out. The housekeeper will supply information of damage and corresponding receipts if and when necessary. We're lucky that this rarely occurs!

Cleaning & Guest Supply Fee - this covers departure out-cleaning & tax fee for housekeeper AND it also covers one time stocking for paper towels, toilet paper, soaps (laundry, dishwasher, dish, hand, bath), plastic wrap, garbage bags, baggies, glass cleaner, dryer sheets, etc. so that guests do not need to purchase these items independently.
