Keauhou Townhome Rental Photos and Description

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

*** Please note that the swimming pool is currently scheduled to be refurbished during August & September 2016 and rates have been reduced for this time period. ***

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 added a 39' TV in the oceanside bedroom. It is really beautiful and a great place is now even better!

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 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!

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 ( 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.

Amazing first days in big island!

  • 5 of 5

My family and I spent only two nights in the house, but it was a perfect "landing " to our Hawaiian experience! The house is marvelously located in front of the ocean and fully equipped and organized. The location lies very conveniently close to the town central, where most restaurants are, close to big supermarket and to some of the most beautiful and reknowed beaches along the Lines coast.

Thank you for your precious support and your great hospitality!

Spectacular Views

  • 4 of 5

I will start by saying that I would recommend this property for sure! The location is so convenient to shopping, snorkeling, swimming. It was so easy to do some site seeing to the north and south of us. The townhouse itself is lovely. We just could not stop looking at the view. Several days we walked out on the rocks and snorkeled right in front of the condo. The amenities were perfect. We traveled with 3 teenagers and there was plenty of room. The bbq was just across the parking lot! They were working on the pool so we did not enjoy that. We knew this when we booked.

We had two issues when we arrived. We called the maintenance man and he took care of them immediately! We were so impressed! Edgar and the people he works with are lovely!

We hope to plan another stay!

The 3 C's you look for when vacationing in Hawaii: Clean, Convenient and Close to the Ocean.

  • 5 of 5

My wife and 3 children ages (14, 13 & 10), thoroughly enjoyed our stay at this rental July 7th - 10th, 2016. It met our expectations as far as the "3 C's" while vacationing in Hawaii. We appreciated the fact it was relatively close to the airport and the condo itself literally sits on the ocean. Listening to the waves wash ashore every night for us was very soothing and we enjoyed eating breakfast every morning on the lanai soaking in the view. It's close proximity to snorkeling or a white sand beach for swimming and relaxation was a big plus for our 3 kids. Shopping venues were close whether it were for shaved ice, souvenirs or for groceries at the Walmart just a few miles away (which also sold many of the same souvenirs but at a much lower price).

Make sure you make the 90 or so mile drive to the Hawaii Volcanoes National Park to take in the spewing of lava from the active volcano in the late evening. Leave early enough to visit both the Green & Black Sand beaches (in that order) which are in between the condo and the park. If you like to hike, the Green Sand beach is for you because it will either require a one way 3 1/4 mile walk or that you "shrewdly" negotiate with the locals to drive you there and back in their 4 wheel drive vehicle. My family of 5 walked there and gladly paid $40 to ride back. The Black Sand beach is accessible by car and accommodated our picnic lunch we had packed with the handful of picnic tables that were available. Depending on the amount of time you spend at each of these 3 locations (coupled with the round trip travel involved), it was 14 hours after we had left the condo before we actually returned.

We couldn't have asked for anything more from the amenities associated with the condo and were very appreciative of the flexibility Edgar demonstrated in allowing us the use of the condo well beyond the normal and customary check out time since our departing flight from the Big Island to Maui wasn't until 20:15. His flexibility allowed us the ability to make the most of our last day and when we return to visit the Big Island we will be looking to book with him again.

Nice property, great location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at this condo for a week with our daughter and her family, and were very pleased with the accommodations. Everything was clean and as it was represented. The ocean is just outside the door, which was very relaxing. The complex has a pool, and we used it several times with our little granddaughter. The owner provided clear instructions on how to find the property and gain access, and everything worked as it should. There is a crib available, not listed in the amenities, which was great for the baby. The location is south of Kailua-Kona, within walking distance of a great snorkeling beach and in easy driving distance of the town for dinner.

My only reasons for not rating this property a 5 is that the bedrooms upstairs were quite hot, especially in the evening when we were trying to sleep. There are fans, but it was still hot. Also, there were no toiletries other than hand soap and salt/pepper/sugar in the kitchen. We've stayed at other VRBO properties, and usually there is a small supply of shampoo, etc, and a few items in the kitchen like oil and mayo to get you started. We had to run out to the store after arriving to stock up. It would have been nice to know this in advance so we could have planned.

Awesome View, Nice Location, Helpful owner

  • 5 of 5

We had a group of six adults and a toddler in this townhouse of a period of 5 nights. Everyone just loved the view.

The location was convenient for getting groceries and access to Ali'i drive for going into Kona town. The nearby beach park was excellent too. The owner was very prompt to respond to any queries and very helpful.

I don't think there is a latch on the bathroom upstairs so we had to be careful so as not to barge in on someone. It was a minor inconvenience but is something that should be easy to fix.

We also had a problem with the ocean getting rough for two nights and a day. The waves were crashing against the rocks and the water splashed all the way up to the patio furniture at times. The property manager boarded up the deck and kitchen window to avoid water damage to the property(He did this for all the townhouses in that row). During this period we didn't have a view of the ocean and it felt quite cramped and dark inside as there was little natural light coming in. I find it hard to blame the owner for this because it was an act of nature but it did dull our spirits for a day. On the other hand it was fascinating watching the waves come crashing in before the area was cordoned off. Hope you have better luck and don't lose the view and access due to such events.
