Overview

Kona Coast Townhome Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 4)

Hawaii Tax ID: W57502235-01

Almost Oceanfront at the wonderful Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club. Only 60 feet to the shoreline or pool AND less than 1/2 mile to the best snorkeling beach in Kona. Couples or families - we've got the repeat guests to attest to our wonderful accommodations and high attention to detail for our guests.

E Komo Mai! (Welcome!) Are you dreaming of your Hawaiian vacation? Stay at a 2bdrm/2bath, almost oceanfront (~60 ft from the shoreline), gorgeous & pristine, white tiled townhouse located in a four-star, gated, oceanfront complex on the Big Island of Hawaii. (Ironman Craig Alexander was a repeat guest and stayed here while placing 2nd and 1st in Kona Ironman.)

As our guest, you will know that you've found a heavenly piece of paradise as soon as you pull into our designated parking spot just 15 feet from front door. The bright tropical decor with beautiful white tiled floors will make you smile as you walk in and you'll anxiously check out the rest of unit and look forward to settling in and beginning the fun! After a fun filled day playing in the ocean, walking on the beach, strolling thru the lushly landscaped grounds or relaxing by the pool you'll happily retire to your comfortable home away from home. Everything you'll need to enjoy your vacation is in the unit and well-maintained for your comfort. And, when you finally decide to rest your eyes you'll do so with the sound of surf to gently soothe you to sleep. In the morning the birds will serenade you to begin another wonderful day in paradise.

And, you will enjoy some ocean views from within the unit or while relaxing on your lanai. Did we mention that the pool is only 60 feet away from the unit? All you have to do is walk around the sacred heiau which is our 'backyard' and there's the pool. Or, you can just as easily walk less than 60 feet to the shoreline. If you're a regular tennis player or even just experimenting we have 3 lighted PREMIER surface courts(3) and they're FREE for our guests. If you want lessons from a Pro that can also be easily arranged. And, yes, we have a couple of tennis racquets for our guests as well.

This lovely place is truly exceptional and we have the past and repeat guest reviews to prove it. Each year we are fortunate to welcome the return of multiple discerning guests such as yourself to our delightful home in paradise. And, each guest is special to us regardless of whether you visited before or if this is your first visit. We'd be delighted to welcome you anytime.

More about our complex - Located on world-famous Ali'i Drive the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club is a four star, gated complex just three minutes drive from groceries, shops, theater, and one of the most popular snorkeling beaches in Hawaii - Kahaluu State Park (also known as Turtle Beach). Additionally, the Kona Country Club golf course is located immediately next to the Surf and Racquet Club. There's even a FREE shuttle to get to and from town or the nearby shopping center - this shuttle stops next to the entry gates to our complex.

More about the unit - This unit sleeps four. The master bedroom includes a king bed, dresser, desk, TV, DVD player, clock radio, phone, oceanviews AND a walk in closet. The second bedroom includes twin beds, dresser, large closet and slight oceanview. Really, come let the waves lull you to sleep at night - it's wonderful.

The unit was completely remodeled in 2006 with brand new everything: furniture, appliances and other amenities. And it has new beautiful new white tile flooring and fresh paint throughout. (We continue to maintain it to perfection!)

Beach Supplies - We have beach towels, chairs, boogey board, cooler and even toys for the kids - just ask when you make reservation.

The location of condo and subsequent remodel was done with both our guests and our personal visits in mind. We wanted a place that we would LOVE on our return every year and it had to be in a GREAT location. We also made sure that it was furnished and decorated to accomodate all guests in comfort. After staying here you'll never want to stay in a hotel on vacation again!

In addition to all the other fun stuff our condo is a centrally located for visiting the Kona coffee plantations in nearby Holualoa, traveling to Volcanoes National Park, experiencing boating excursions off the Kailua-Kona pier, shopping at outdoor markets or taking a tour to the top of Mauna Kea and visiting the observatory. And it's only 3 minutes drive to Kahaluu State Park (aptly known as Turtle Beach) where you can snorkel and swim with the turtles and beautiful tropical fish. The park has multiple bathrooms, showers and vendors that sell food and rent snorkel and beach gear.

Please let us know if we can answer any additional questions about the unit, the complex, Kona or the Big Island in general. Aloha!

Guestbook comments from the owner

“Very happy with Townhouse, location and very responsive owner!”

(posted on Trip Advisor, August, 2014)



The unit is very clean, bright and well stocked, beach towels, beach chairs and cooler were great convenience. Owner provides good information and instructions. The complex has a fairly large pool, tennis courts (which my daughter and my nephew used almost everyday) and BBQ, walk a few feet and you can watch the sunset! My family enjoyed our stay very much!

Spotless and cosy

  • 5 of 5

As we opened the front door, we were impressed by the 'feel' of the unit. We felt at home. The unit was spotless and fully equipped. The white tile floors set off the furnishings. It was tastefully decorated with a glass topped dining table and a bamboo sofa. The beds were so comfy. We appreciated the closeness of the pool and the BBQ. The ocean, (Turtle beach), was only minutes away. We would love to return to this unit the next time we visit Hawaii!

Just right for our family holiday

  • 5 of 5

The townhouse was spotless, well appointed and well thought out while simple. We watched the sunset every night from just a few steps away from the house, cooked on the bbq, played tennis and enjoyed the pool after days snorkeling and exploring the island. The air around the house smells of jasmine flowers and the island is so so beautiful. The resort is in a good spot, close to a wonderful snorkel spot and away from the hubbub of Ali'i Drive in the center. As with most of the Big Island, you are kind of forced to drive everywhere which is unfortunate, but it is the same story wherever you stay on the island because it is big and the centers are spread out.

WE were 4: my parents and my sister and I. Number 59 was perfect for us and I would recommend it to anyone wanting a holiday home that won't break the bank!

Perfect place for us!

  • 5 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed staying at this townhouse. It was very clean and quiet and the bedrooms felt spacious and light. The location within the complex was ideal as it was close to the pool and to a lovely walk-to beach. The grounds felt expansive as compared to high density condos. It is a corner unit so has a lot of light within the unit and has an expansive view from the patio/lanai. We could see and hear the ocean from the complex but it was far enough away to not have our sleep interrupted by crashing waves. We really liked the overall location, being close to a great snorkeling beach, close to grocery shopping and close to Keauhou Bay where we enjoyed participating in the outrigger canoe club. We liked being away from main downtown Kona. There were several options for walking that didn't involved being on busy Alii Drive. Both the owner and local manager were very helpful and efficient. I highly recommend this rental and hope to return soon.

Large town home in a great location, close to beaches and shopping

  • 4 of 5

Large 2 bed 2 bath sunny town home in a gated property. Grounds are beautiful, pool and bbq area available. Tennis and sun! There is a small almost private beach very close, surf is high but can wade in tide pools. Spotted many green turtles from shore. The king bed and provided fans made sleeping a breeze, especially hearing the crashing waves!!. All amenities you'd need were stocked there, was very clean and relaxing. Is a very quiet resort. Easy walking distance to Kahalu'u beach park and stores ( Longs and KTA ).would highly recommend staying here. Was lovely.

Another Day in Paradise

  • 5 of 5

Aloha Sandy,

Our stay at your lovely condo was everything as advertised and more. The condo felt like home from the moment we entered. We enjoyed using the ceiling fans and electric fans to keep us cool. That way we could enjoy the sounds of the surf and birds too. What an amazingly stocked kitchen. There was nothing lacking cookware and dish wise, and the cooler was perfect for our day trips and longer ventures around the island. We enjoyed our breakfasts on the lanai and were constantly treated to amazing birds, geckos and even a local mongoose. The stars were amazing too whether floating in the pool or taking a look up before bedtime.

The Kahaluu State Park aka Turtle Beach was a perfect site for beginner snorkelers and still interesting for the more experienced. The tides and surf there provided a variety of snorkeling experiences. In general the shallowness allows one to see incredible detail on the fish. We did visit the City of Refuge and we were intrigued by the history and flora of the Hawaiians. It was a truly quiet and almost spiritual experience. So glad you mentioned it in your Vacation Tips on the Big Island. We also visited the 'Two Step' snorkelling beach near the City of Refuge. The water is much deeper there but we did see both sea turtles and dolphins along with larger sized fish. Though there was no life guard there, the locals and other snorkelers and divers are respectful of each other entering and exiting via the natural steps. You must get there early as parking is limited but it is worth the beautiful scenic twenty minute drive and the splendour of the ocean inhabitants.

Thank you for sharing your home with us. It felt like our home away from home. I'm positive that at least once a day one of us sighed 'another wonderful day in paradise!'.
