About the property

2 Bedrooms, 2 Bathrooms Plus Additional Beds in Loft.

Cool Kona Breeze. From a majestic penthouse view you can enjoy a spectacular panoramic sunset and views of the shimmering blue Pacific ocean. You may just see whales swim past as you lounge on the expansive lanai and watch schools of yellow tang beckon you for a swim. This penthouse condo offers the best location on the Big Island.

One of a limited number of oceanfront condos with an up close view of the Pacific no longer afforded any developments in the area. Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club is a spacious and tranquil condo property with luxury amenities for your enjoyment and relaxation. Three lighted tennis courts with a resident tennis pro, a large pool with a wading area and poolside shower. Nearby golf courses and an Oceanfront walkway are there for your morning jog or sunset stroll.

The property is bordered by Kahalu’u Bay with Turtle Beach, surfing lessons and the best snorkeling on the island available just a short walk or drive away. To the south is the beautiful Keauhou Bay with a friendly rowing club experience for those with an adventurous streak or access to boat and fishing trips as well.

All the conveniences are in the neighborhood, theatres, pharmacy, KTA grocery with local fare and a Saturday farmers market. Kona Stories Books, a Salon and Spa and gift shops are located in the nearby Keauhou Shopping Center.

Keahou Surf and Racquet is situated at the southern edge of Kailua-Kona in a quiet 17acre garden property just far enough from the hustle and bustle town yet close enough for a quick trip to da Poke Shack or Shave Ice.

This third floor expansive unit offers panoramic views of the ocean with the living area and master bedroom opening to a large lanai and the second bedroom with a view to the mountains and the sunrise. You can also use the loft for extra sleeping quarters. Please note that certain time of year Kona can be hot and humid. Although our condo has no air conditioning, we do provide ceiling and floor fans to the bedrooms.

A full service kitchen and indoor and outdoor dining areas let you spread out and relax at home all the while enjoying the cool Kona breeze and the blue Pacific ocean.

Let the Big Island trade-winds take you away.

About Thanh Ly

Our family loves to travel. We have enjoyed many VRBO properties and hope we can share some of that same hospitality with our guests. We live on the Monterey Bay in California and despite the beauty of our neighborhood we still can't wait to visit our condo in Hawaii and hope you feel the same.

Thanh Ly purchased this condo in 2014

Why Thanh Ly chose Kona Coast

We love the outdoors, hiking, biking, rowing, snorkeling, golfing and lounging on the lanai. We love good food and the laid back lifestyle. When we experienced the cool Kona breeze we were hooked. This place was perfect for us. We can't stay here all the time so why not let others enjoy it too. The Big Island has it all.

What makes this condo unique

The view is one of a kind. Watch the sun set every night as you lounge on your bed. Feel the breeze coming off the ocean and rocking you to sleep. It is private yet nestled in a friendly community.

The Condo: Excellent layout as described. Not all condos at the Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club (KSRC) were created equal. This one has a loft upstairs with two twin beds for the kids to hang out in. The balcony has a gorgeous view of the ocean with seating and a table for dining al fresco as well as a much loved hammock to swing in the breeze. We love to cook and we especially appreciated the beautifully equipped kitchen...great knives and pans to cook with, Sub-Zero refrigerator, granite counter tops...the works!!! Additionally, there are some board games, boogie boards, snorkels, beach towels, beach chairs and fishing tackle for guests to use. Since it is on the 3rd floor, it may be difficult for people with limited mobility as there is no elevator. In our party, one person uses a cane but he felt the stairs had adequate railing to help support him going up and down the stairs.

The perfect location: We love to snorkel and the condo is situated in a great location for it. Kahaluu Beach (0.5 mi) is great for seeing turtles and lots of fish. 30 mins to the south is 2-Step (Honounau) or Captain Cook Monument which are both great for seeing wildlife. The condo is also 30 mins away from Kohala area beaches and our favorite, the Mauna Kea Beach. Nearby there is a small bay and harbor where you can rent Stand up Paddleboards, Kayaks and go out with the Keauhou Outrigger Club. If agri-tourism is your thing, you can visit a chocolate farm, coffee plantation, or a honey bee farm nearby. There is a very convenient shopping center just down the road that has a Longs, Grocery Store, Cinema and Restaurants.

The complex: The KSRC complex has access to a small beach area that is almost private. Most of the shoreline near the condos are lava rock but the area at the end near the townhouses has the access to the small sand beach. This is nice for small children. There are tennis courts and a pool...both we did not use but looked nice. There are propane BBQs all over the complex but the condo is close to the large pavilion in the center that has 2 BBQs.

Why we chose this condo: It has the best ocean facing view vs. some that face slightly towards the north (or none at all). It also has so many high end amenities such as lovely bed linens, fast washer/dryer, nice furnishings and excellent kitchen. The bathrooms were beautifully updated and will not be disappointed.

Exceeded all expectations!

  • 5 of 5

Our family of four had an awesome time in this lovely condo. The location was perfect, with beautiful quiet grounds and great pool. The condo itself was elegant and newly remodeled, and very comfortable. It was equipped with everything imaginable which we really appreciated. The owners were friendly and helpful, and we would come back in a heartbeat!

Wonderful two weeks

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have asked for more. The view. The condo. The Club facilities. Your advertising does not do it justice. The worst part of our vacation was the last. It was difficult to leave.

Lovely ocean condo, perfect for a family vacation!

  • 5 of 5

We were so happy with this rental... the owner was happy to answer all of our questions and made us feel welcome before we even got there! Our mornings were spent on the patio, scanning the ocean for dolphins and sea life, checking out the kayakers and boaters while having breakfast, and our evenings were spent enjoying the ocean breeze with a Kona beer and planning our next day :) Enough room for the kids to have their own space, and for the adults to feel like it's part of the vacation, not just the place they're staying! You WILL love this condo!
