Overview

About the property

Beautiful 2 BR / 2 BA oceanfront townhouse at Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club

Are you looking for a special place, with an unsurpassed oceanfront location and view? Look no further...You've found it all at Keauhou-Kona Surf and Racquet Club Townhouse #186!

Keauhou-Kona Surf and Racquet #186 exudes pride of ownership: Balinese and Hawaiian furnishings and art work grace every room, creating a home designed for comfort and relaxation!

In December 2012, the townhouse had a major renovation. The kitchen was remodeled removing walls to make a more open floor plan and installing new cabinets and counters. The laundry facilities were moved upstairs bathroom area, which opened the kitchen considerably. The upstairs bathroom was completely changed, all the plumbing moved and now has a large shower at the end of the room with a large window overlooking the ocean. The living room, kitchen, bathrooms and stairs have been newly tiled with travertine. We repainted the bedrooms in July 2014 and purchased a new sleeper sofa in February 2017 for added guest comfort.

Let the soft breeze and ocean waves lull you to sleep in the Makai (toward the ocean) Master Bedroom, furnished with a King bed and cable TV. The tropical Mauka (mountain side) bedroom has two twin beds (easily converted to a King with kit provided), and teak and bamboo furnishings.

Keeping to our motto 'Just Say No to Rugs,' this townhouse sports bamboo hardwood flooring in the bedrooms and tile throughout the ground floor.

From the ground floor Lanai you can watch Spinner Dolphins swim the coastline daily, whales breaching during their migration and incomparable sunsets with the ocean waves literally breaking in front of you. If you were staying anywhere closer you'd be swimming!

Located in the upscale Keauhou area this is a highly desirable, quiet, family-friendly and gated 14 acre garden community featuring 3 lighted tennis courts (tennis pro available), a swimming pool that was fully refurbished in October 2016 and nicely done community BBQ and picnic areas.

Walk to Kahalu’u Beach Park (ranked among the best snorkeling reefs in the Islands) and to the nearby Keauhou shopping center for shops, dining, cinema, groceries, local Farmer's market and free Hula and local community entertainment weekly. Excellent golfing is available at the adjacent Kona Country Club Ocean Golf Course or take the day off and watch the local surfers “shred” a few waves.

This is an excellent and safe walking area with many sights, open expanses of coastline and minimal automobile traffic. The area is great for strolling and rich in historical landmarks and heiau (temples), one of which is adjacent to the unit. This area was once the home of the Ali'i (Hawaiian chiefs) and the waters were once reserved for use only by royalty!

This is a wonderful retreat you are sure to enjoy!

We also have a condo that sleeps four at https://www.vrbo.com/1020417

About Edgar Mendez Chacon

We're Edgar and Jiraphon, an adventure-loving, world traveling couple. We fell in love with the island of Hawaii (also known as the Big Island) and enjoy the vibe of the island.

Edgar Mendez Chacon purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Edgar Mendez Chacon chose Kona Coast

On our very first visit to the Big Island of Hawaii we absolutely fell in love with this beautiful island. We rented a townhouse in Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club right next to this one and were surprised to see this unit for sale. We had thoroughly enjoy the area as well as the island so much that we could see ourselves coming back again and again to explore Hawaii. We were lucky enough to be able to purchase the townhouse and are pleased to be able to share it with our guests and hope they have as wonderful stay as we did!

What makes this townhome unique

If you want oceanfront, look no further! To get any closer you'll have to be sleeping on the water! The master bedroom, living room and lanai look unobstructed over 2,500 miles of unbroken Pacific Ocean, the waves of which break not even 50 feet from your door. There is no need for air conditioning since there is a nice ocean breeze to keep you comfortable when you're not out exploring all the magic the island has to offer! If you're a light sleeper you may want to bring some ear plugs since the sound of the waves crashing can be loud at times if you sleep with the windows open.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Via Airbnb (https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/19416): We really enjoyed our week at this beautiful, well located townhouse. When it says oceanfront – it really means oceanfront. The patio door opens directly to the most beautiful view and if you wanted to you could simply spend all day sitting there looking out at the water. The townhouse was spacious, clean and well stocked with everything we needed for our stay. It’s within walking distance of the shopping center and a small beach – although we would highly recommend renting a car to explore everything the island has to offer. The host was helpful and available to contact for any questions or suggestions on things to do and see in the area (we saw a lot of turtles – thanks for everything Edgar!) There was also plenty of snorkel and beach gear for us to use which was great. Given the proximity of the ocean and that you will want the windows open for the breeze - I would recommend bringing ear plugs if you are a light sleeper. We had a great vacation and hope to visit again someday.

Beautiful and relaxing.

  • 5 of 5

We saw whales from the Lanai. Breakfast everyday on the lanai and wine every evening. What a wonderful place to stay. Everything was clean and plenty of snorkel gear to use. Thank you for making our vacation great.

Owner's Response: We're glad you enjoyed your stay, Pat! This is a great time of year to catch the migrating whales while relaxing on the lanai. It makes it tough to leave!

Disappointed in our stay

  • 2 of 5

Well there are good things and bad things about the unit. The best thing is it's an ocean front unit and it is great to have the ocean view and that is what really makes this unit. We saw spinner dolphins jumping and great sunset viewing. Also the pool is well designed as it has a large shallow area so young kids can play. On the negative side the unit is rather small. We were a group of three adults and 2 kids. Also when we arrived there were no bed sheets for the pull out couch and not enough beach towel. While this was resolved the next morning not the best way to start. Also the dishes in the unit were all very dirty when we arrived It turns out the dish washer does not function at all on the top drawer and poorly on the bottom. As a result we washed all our dishes in the sink. Time for a new dish washer. Maybe not the biggest deal but at the price charged for the unit not great. In my view the unit is not good value. In summary I would not recommend this place to stay.

Great location - beautiful setting

  • 5 of 5

The condo is very much as described and with the pictures posted. The unit is on the ground floor with an ocean view. The pool is right across the parking area (quite close). Watching the sunset with the waves crashing and the whales blowing was a real treat. I live about an hour and a half from Kona and needed to spend the night there with family so they could catch an early flight out. I was only there one night but I would definitely stay there again.

Incredible views

  • 4 of 5

Thank you for sharing your vacation home. The town home was in a great locations close enough to town and a good shopping centre ( with a grocery store). We've travelled to Hawaii numerous times but have never had a home literally on the water. Great for sunsets, morning coffees, watching the waves crash.

Direct Oceanfront indeed!!

  • 4 of 5

Everything was just as we were informed upfront. It was easy to find, secure and the grounds were very lush and beautiful. Beds were comfy and all of the local artist's work on the walls were pretty cool. The pool was awesome to take a dip to cool off, especially after a day exploring the island. Waves were crashing higher than normal during our stay (we were told), never got sick of watching nature at it's finest out on the lanai. It was close to all the action of the tourism of Kona but yet far enough away to relax in peace and quite. Can honestly say we had no complaints and would recommend it.

What a view.....

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I rented this unit for 10 days, and we were NOT disappointed. Amazing view of the ocean every morning during breakfast, and the stars at night were clearer than ever. Just off the lanai you could see whale tails in the distance along with a sunset that was incomparable. Listening to the waves at night took a bit of getting used to, but when you did, there really is no other way to get to sleep. The pool is literally right across from the front door, the neighbors and surrounding area quiet, and was easily accessible to shopping and local restaurants (we HIGHLY recommend Sam Choy's 5 minutes away...pricey but worth it). The minor issues or questions we had were immediately answered and handled by Edgar while we were there...couldn't have been easier. I could go on, but you should be clicking the button to reserve this unit ASAP!
