About Shawna Bedard

We have been coming to Kona on vacation for the past 30 years staying in various condos on the Big Island. The Keauhou area became our favourite spot, and ten years ago we purchased a two week timeshare at the Kona Coast Resort nearby. We have enjoyed many wonderful family vacations during our annual 2 weeks at the timeshare. Since our boys are now young adults we want to spend more time in Kona so decided to purchase this unit at the Kona Surf and Racquet Club. We plan to eventually make Kona our second home.

Shawna Bedard purchased this condo in 2014

Why Shawna Bedard chose Keauhou

We chose this property because of its prime ocean front location in Keauhou, close to shopping, beaches and many other activities, but at the same time within a quiet, secure and very friendly complex. This specific unit was chosen because of the spectacular views, its spaciousness and its homey feeling.

What makes this condo unique

The location, the views, and the spaciousness of this condo make this a wonderful place to relax and enjoy the Aloha Spirit!

We are happy to be able to share this special place with you!

great stay...but

  • 5 of 5

problem is the stay was great, but by writing this it'll be more popular, harder to book and more expensive next time...a catch-22!!!

Owner's Response: Hi John, Thanks for your 5 star review! I just got home from the condo after spending 8 weeks there. I met with contractors and spent time picking out items for our up coming major renovation which will take place August- early November 2018. We are redoing 2 bathrooms, replacing lanai doors and windows, replacing carpets with bamboo flooring throughout, and ADDING AIR CONDITIONING as an OPTION for guests that want it. The condo will be even more comfortable than it already is! We hope you will be able to stay with us again! Warm regards, Shawna

Our favorite place

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I and friends from Boise just spent the last week in this unit. It is by far our favorite accommodation and place to stay of ANYWHERE we've traveled. We've been coming here (to this unit) since 2003, and it never disappoints. The condo is spacious, very nicely and fully appointed, feels just like it's our own home, and the lanai is to die for. In fact, once we get there its hard to get my husband to do anything but sit on the lanai. The weather was great, we were able to watch spinner dolphins every morning while having coffee, and it was so relaxing we ate in almost every night (thanks to the fully equipped kitchen). This will always be our first choice for a place to stay when we visit Kona, and we hope to return soon. We highly recommend this unit and this complex. Aloha!

We have stayed at this resort many many times over the past 20-years. Its our favorite spot and we have always stayed at our friends condo in the townhouse area, but with a larger group that wasn't possible. SO this unit was perfect three bedrooms with a lot of privacy (except the loft bedroom which is open to the living area so hard to get privacy up there from noise) and the view from the Lanai was great you cant beat it for the sunsets. The spinner dolphins were out most mornings. There was a ton of snorkeling gear so all 6 of us could go without having to rent equipment. The kitchen was well equipped and there was a hard and soft cooler to use for picnics and beach outings. We didnt use the umbrellas or chairs but it was great that they were there. I would reccomend this unit in a heart beat and will let friends know.

Great location - could have been a lot cleaner

  • 3 of 5


Location is extremely close to the water, convenient for shopping and touring around the island

Wrap around lanai is massive and has numerous seating options

Kitchen is well equipped and numerous BBQ areas on property to utilize

Tons of beach gear including snorkel equipment, chairs, umbrellas, boogie boards, etc.

Tennis courts are in great condition (although had no lights when we were there)

Pool area is nice and relaxing

It was extremely hot when we were there, there are tons of fans in unit to help cool it off at night so AC was not really required (although would have been nice)


Carpet is in majority of condo and was likely source of several severe allergic reactions for our group of 6

Condo was likely cleaner when we left it - two beds had to be stripped on our arrival and washed as it looked like cleaners just made a dirty bed, several items in kitchen were just put back in the cupboards dirty causing an insect problem for a lot of our stay including ants, cockroaches and likely termites, several items of dirty socks/underwear in unit from previous renters really showed the level of care the cleaners are taking

Ceiling fan in kitchen can only turn on with lights that are above it which causes a strobe effect at night, for us it meant we couldn't have that fan on at all in an area that needed it the most

Bathrooms have a mold/mildew issue, there is a reason there are no pictures of them

Wifi is extremely weak, most of our party had an issue unless they were directly beside it

Bottom line: location is great. However unit could use an update throughout, cleaners should be replaced, anyone with asthma/allergies should avoid until this happens.

Owner's Response: Dear DQ, Thank you for your review. I am very surprised and sorry to hear of the issues you had during your stay. I really wish you would have contacted my property management company at the time and they would have resolved the issues for you immediately. As owners, we take pride in the condo and work hard to make it a special place for our guests to enjoy. Being only 50 feet from the ocean can take a toll on the furniture and fixtures both inside and outside the unit. The salt air can cause corrosion on door and window tracks, faucets, appliances and on metal fixtures which can begin to show rust as early as one year after purchase. TV’s and electronics often need to be replaced after only 2 years as a result. We do annual updates to the unit and since purchasing it in 2014 have added new living room, bedroom, and lanai furniture. Replaced many major appliances in the kitchen, and installed new carpet throughout the unit. Updating the bathrooms and the lanai doors with more modern fixtures is our next undertaking. Although the bathrooms are not new, they are cleaned and disinfected after each guest. The tropical and humid climate of Hawaii bring other challenges. Roaches, and little ants love this climate and as a result often get into the condo. Rest assured this is not a result of the cleanliness of the condo but its geographical location. To manage the bugs, the Strata at the Kona Surf and Racquet Club has a pest control company come quarterly to every unit in the complex. Every year we have all the windows, tiles and carpets professionally cleaned. When I stay every February I personally scrub every inch of the condo from the lanai door frames, window sills, bathroom tubs and showers and cupboards. I reorganize every closet, cupboard and drawer in the unit and I replenish and replace towels, bedding, beach supplies etc. Again we are sorry you had some issues during your stay. We have never had any allergy or cleaning issues from past guests. I have already contacted my property managers to follow up with the cleaners. We would like to refund you your cleaning fee to compensate for your inconveniences. Warm Regards, Shawna PS – To access a WALK THROUGH VIDEO of the condo including bathrooms go to photo #25 on our VRBO page and double click it and it should start the video

Beautiful lanai

  • 5 of 5

Thank you for our wonderful stay at your condo August 2017.

Wow - waking up and enjoying coffee on the lanai was so relaxing,

but most of all the stunning sunsets are spectacular!! Lovely roomy

3 bedroom, 3 bath condo with all modern amenities. Was a bit humid

for August but we left all windows and screens opened and cooled

off fine at night.

Thank you Shawna
