Absolutely Oceanfront Condo - Keauhou-Kona Surf & Racquet Club

Bedrooms 3
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

Condo, 3 Bedrooms, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our oceanfront condo is located in Keauhou, five miles south of downtown Kailua on the magnificent Ali'i Drive. The Keauhou-Kona Surf and Racquet Club is a beautiful condominium complex situated on 16 acres of impeccably landscaped grounds, and boasts a large pool, three professional tennis courts, covered pavilions, a volleyball court, and outdoor barbecue areas. Our unit is 3-302, top floor building 3.

We are within walking distance of a shopping center with a good grocery store, restaurants and movie theaters. We are also a 10-minute walk from Kahalu'u State Beach, the best snorkel beach on the Big Island. Two beautiful golf courses, at the Kona Country Club, are literally in our back yard. We are a two-and-a-half hour drive from Hawaii Volcanoes National Park.

Our condo contains three bedrooms, two newly renovated baths, a fully equipped and recently renovated kitchen, and a lanai to die for. Facing due west, the lanai is the perfect place to view breath-taking sunsets. A table for six makes outdoor dining a pleasure. We are on the third floor of a three-floor building (no elevator), with soaring cathedral ceilings that give the unit a light-filled airy feeling.

The master bedroom contains a king-sized bed and is right off the lanai, so you can fall asleep to the sounds of the waves lapping at the rocks only 30 feet away. The second bedroom contains a queen-sized bed and faces the golf course. The third bedroom is a loft space that is furnished with two twin beds, a separate closet, and a peaceful reading nook.

There are two recently refurbished bathrooms downstairs, both equipped with showers. The unit includes a fully stocked kitchen, plenty of linens and towels, a washer and dryer, beach chairs and mats, boogie boards and other beach toys, a nice stereo, cable TV, high-speed wireless internet, VCR and DVD player. We've also provided a small library and a complete assortment of games and puzzles.

This beautiful condo is our second home, and we think you'll see the loving attention we have given it. We're sure you'll enjoy sharing our island paradise. No pets or smoking please.

Great location, well maintained!

  • 5 of 5

The condo was perfect for a family trip of 6 over Thanksgiving. The location was perfect to take day trips to the see all the attractions or go to the local beaches. All the beach equipment you could need was provided. We made Thanksgiving dinner in the condo and were not short or in need of any cooking utensils. Would stay here again!

Owner's Response: Hi Trung - We are so glad that you had a good family vacation for Thanksgiving at our condo in Kailua-Kona. We do try to make sure that our place is set up for all the cooking and beach adventures you may want to have in this bit of paradise. I hope that you come see us all again. Katherine

Everything we hoped for and needed!

  • 5 of 5

Gorgeous view and perfect layout! Property owner very kind and responsive to our needs; third floor unit certainly raises the temperature but many nice fans were available in every room. Awesome supply of extra towels, pillows, sheets, beach and pool supplies, etc. View and lanai made were the best part of all. Property grounds are very clean and private...hated to leave!

Owner's Response: Tamara - I am so glad that you enjoyed your stay with us at Surf and Racquet 3-302 in Keauhou Kona. The fans have always kept us comfortable together with the cross draft from the natural ocean breezes. We also hate to leave ! Katherine

Simply Amazing!

  • 5 of 5

I have used VRBO many times over the past 15 years and I would have to say that the the owners went beyond our every expectation! There were plenty of towels (bath, hand, and beach), extra pillows, etc for a comfortable stay. The condo was simply amazing - nicely appointed, great views, and everything you could every want or need. The beds were comfortable. They had snorkel gear, beach chairs, cooler, beach umbrella, and even binoculars for your use. They had their storage closet filled with extra supplies such as extra paper towels, toilet paper, etc. They even had a tool box! The kitchen was also fully stocked with many spices, saraan wrap, aluminum fold, sandwich bags, and all the utensils you would ever need. They had a number of games and books to keep you busy in the condo if you liked. The only negatives were that the unit was not air conditioned and there are no elevators available. We really didn’t have any issues not having A/C as the unit was well ventilated and they had multiple fans per room in addition to the ceiling fan. The stairs were only an issue when moving luggage as we had an elderly couple traveling with us. I could go on and on - Katherine was very easy to work with and responded to all my questions promptly. Thank you so much for sharing your place and keeping it so well stocked!

Owner's Response: Hi Nooredin - Thank you for your very kind review. I am glad that the kitchen supplies, towels, beach chairs, books and binoculars to watch the dolphins helped to make your stay a success. I wish there were more we could do about the stairs and air conditioning. We chose the top floor unit despite the stairs because of the cathedral ceilings, absence of an upstairs neighbor and superior view of the ocean. We visit often and the natural cross ventilation, ocean breezes and the fans have always been enough for us to be comfortable but I understand that AC would be a plus. I hope that you visit Kona again and thank you for your thoughtful review. We are heading to our condo in a few days and will re-stock the unit and enjoy the sunsets and ocean view ourselves for a few days. Katherine

The condo and amenities were more than we expected. The landscaping was beautiful and abundant.

  • 5 of 5

We purchased many items for dinner from the nearby supermarket. So we ate delicious meals on our balcony while watching the sunset. Our son raced in the ironman so the location couldn't be better. One of the best vacations we've had. Thanks for wonderful hospitality

Owner's Response: Hi Mike - I am so glad that you had a good vacation. Kona is such a wonderful place and the local KTA Supermarket does have a good selection for meals on the lanai-balcony at sunset time. We do take care with amenities and am glad you enjoyed them. With thanks and I hope you return again for another vacation in paradise. Katherine

Most excellent location in Kona!

  • 5 of 5

Wonderfully equipped with everything you need. Beach toys, first aid, condiments, books, games, you name it! Very comfy beds with really soft sheets too. The lanai was the highlight of the place. Perfectly situated in front of the sunset and we even saw the full moon go down a couple of times! We saw spinner dolphins, yellow tangs in the surf below, sailboats and outrigger canoes. We highly recommend snorkeling at 2 step. The best we have ever had! And easy in, easy out. We loved the local grocery store, it’s 5 minutes away! We never made it to the pool but it looked really nice. You don’t really need ac since there are lots of fans. We slept upstairs and we were very comfortable. We would love to come back when the whales are migrating. What a show it would be! Mahalo for all the special touches to make our stay 5 Star!

Ocean Waves Oasis!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was beautiful; almost every amenity possible; from the sound of the ocean waves crashing on the rocks below, to the nicely appointed kitchen, to the airyness of each room!

There is no A/C, but the breeze cools things off quickly : )

We visited almost every inch of the island, so it was nice to come back to a cozy "home away from home"!

Thank you, Katherine : )
