About the property

2 bedrooms, 2 full bathrooms, sleeps 4

A charming yet elegant condo situated in the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club only steps from the beautiful Kona beaches. The condo is stocked with everything you need to enjoy your stay. It's a short walk to shopping area. Church, live theater & movies in nearby town. There is something for everyone in this little piece of paradise.

After a fun filled day playing in the ocean, walking the beaches, strolling thru the lushly landscaped grounds or relaxing by the pool you'll retire to your comfortable home away from home. When you finally decide to rest your eyes you'll do so to the sound of the surf gently soothing you to sleep. In the morning the birds will serenade you to begin another wonderful day in paradise.

If you are a regular tennis player or even just experimenting we have 3 lighted PREMIER surface courts that are free for our guests. There is a tennis coach available on property.

More about the complex: Located on the 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 at our complex.

More about the condo: The condo has recently been remolded and refurnished and sleeps four. The condo is a 2 story townhouse design. The master bedroom includes a hand carved Koa wood queen size bed, 2 dressers, clock radio, mirrored closet and ceiling fan.

Enjoy the beautiful lush garden views from every window in the condo. The amazing Banyan trees will capture your imagination. Amenities are provided for a worry free start up.

In addition to all the other fun stuff the condo is centrally located for visiting the Kona coffee plantation 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 walk 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. The condo is also convenient to the Iron Man route.

Very pleased

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at this condo in Jan-Feb 2017. It is the fifth condo we have rented in the area and certainly the nicest. It has been kept up like a personal residence, not a rental property. The community itself was very welcoming and has aquasizes in the pool a couple days a week, so it is easy to get to know the neighbours. The unit itself is in the centre of the complex, very close to the pool and tennis courts. We liked that the parking spot was shaded by a large flambeau tree, so the vehicle did not heat up badly. The owners replied quickly to queries and could not have been more accommodating. The only negative for us was the early morning traffic noise in the bedroom nearest Ali'i Drive, and it was not a huge issue. We would certainly give this condo a very good recommendation, especially for a retired couple like us.

Lovely stay

Once again we spent an enjoyable two months at this unit in Kona. You would have to be extremely nit-picky to find fault with this condo. Thanks to Margaret and Gail, our accommodating hosts. Great times again.

Great place to stay

Next door to the pool, just minutes to walk to a rugged and rocky beach with turtles, snorkeling & petroglyphs ; and a lovely home with everything you need. We had a wonderful stay.
