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 your vacation. 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. Mix a cool drink or two and watch the sunset each evening from the nearby lookout OR from the beach 200 yards out your front door. 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 sounds of surf to gently soothe you to sleep. In the morning the birds will serenade you to begin another wonderful day in paradise.

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 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, boogie 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!

About Sandy K.

I love to travel! I've been very blessed to enjoy traveling as a child while my dad was in the military and then as an adult for my job and with my husband. We began visiting Hawaii in 1999 and our annual visits turned into our first purchase of a vacation home in 2006. It was on our 4th trip to the Big Island of Hawaii and during our 2nd stay at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club that we began looking for our own place. The diversity of this island paradise and the wonderful snorkeling and the lovely townhouse settings made all the other complexes pale in comparison on our searches - we purchased townhouse #59 and returned for our fifth trip to completely redo the unit (tile to ceiling) in preparation for personal and guest visits. We still feel the same way about this wonderful place and now own a second, completely oceanfront unit (#196) in this same lovely complex. And, it's only gotten better. Our goal in rentals is to offer what we'd want and expect in a unit if we were traveling. Super clean, well maintained, simple and beautful decor, plenty of space to pack away our suitcases and settle in comfortably, good beds & linens, and complete kitchens for at home meals whenever we like. Fortunately for us, many of our guests appreciate and expect the same type of accomodation and we have several guests or groups of guests that have become repeat visitors to our lovely place/s. All have said this is the best place they've found and the first place they check for return visits. We love and appreciate all of our guests but even more so our repeat or referred guests. We'd be delighted to welcome you and your friends to a stay in paradise. Our motto in life - pay it forward; be the first to do the right thing; set the right example; good karma will follow you. Our guests should know that we will do everything to help them enjoy their stay with us.

Sandy K. purchased this townhome in 2006

Why Sandy K. chose Kona Coast

When we were looking for our dream home in paradise we found this perfectly located unit and nothing else compared. Next to the ocean but no oceanfront price and next to the pool and two minutes (max) from a walk-on beach. I loved the complex, the sense of security and proximity of less than 1/2 mile to Kahalu'u Beach Park and the Keauhou Shopping Center. I still feel the same way today and love to share our delightful home in paradise with others. It's perfect!

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!

Great location and host!

  • 5 of 5

We spent 6 nights at the townhouse. It was very clean and quiet. We loved hanging out at the spacious pool in a warm day. Well stocked kitchen with everything we needed to prepare a meal. Nice shopping center and snorkelling nearby the complex. We had a great encounter with turtles at the turtle beach. The property owner Sandy and on site manager Jeri were super helpful to ensure our stay was pleasant. We truly enjoyed our time here.

Great accomodation

  • 4 of 5

Our family of 4 enjoyed our stay. The facilities at the KKS&R club are great. Clean, tidy, secure with lovely gardens. Pool is excellent. The condo is well equipped with everything you need. We cooked our own meals most nights. We loved listening to the surf crashing. The location is central for exploring the costal areas. You really do need your own transport. We initially found it a bit confusing driving around the area and coming from Kona airport but you soon get the hang of it. Local shopping centre for groceries etc. is near by. Resort town and beaches close enough to access by car for shopping and cafes, swimming and snorkelling. My only negative would be the upstairs section which is where the bedrooms are located gets very warm in the afternoons and stays warm into the evening. There is a portable air con in the main bedroom but is extra charge and only somewhat effective. Some block out blinds to keep room from heating up might be helpful. The stairs might be a problem for senior people as a little steep and tiled. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay and the area is definitely worth a visit.

Kona Surf and Racquet Club - a perfect place for a family to visit the big island

  • 4 of 5

Our family spent 6 nights in the condo and really loved it. The place was clean and very functional. The kitchen was well stocked with pots, pans, knifes, etc..., the lanai was a great place to hang out when not hanging out at the pool. There is great snorkeling was within walking distance and other sights were nearby including a good grocery store. It was very quiet at night and a place I would definitely return to.
