Stunning Ocean Views from Lovely
We stayed at The Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club in #3304 recently and loved this beautiful condo. There are 2 bedrooms as well as a media room that doubles as a private, 3rd bedroom, and 3 full bathrooms. The condo has been beautifully updated with granite countertops and stainless steel appliances, as well as two laundry areas--one upstairs for the master bedroom, and one downstairs. The views are stunning from the livingroom, upstairs master bedroom, and the large, wrap around lanai. I've stayed in several condos in this complex and all were lovely. This one was more roomy than most, with a loft master suite to die for. I would definitely book this unit again. If you are not able to climb stairs, any Surf and Racquet Club condo is not for you unless you book a ground floor unit--there are no elevators in the buildings. We like the extra exercise that we get just coming and going, so for us, the stairs are not a problem. The stunning views and privacy from the upstairs units make the climb worth the effort. I was especially pleased with the charming decor of this unit. The furnishings are perfect for the space, comfortable, clean and new. This is not always the case with condo rentals. The unit has also been redone with new tile floors throughout. The Surf and Racquet Club at Keahou is about a 10 minute drive down Alii Drive from downtown Kona Town. However, Keauhou Village Shopping Center is just a 2 minute drive away for groceries at KTA market (with an excellent deli and bakery), CVS pharmacy, and several restaurants. Kenichi Pacific Restaurant is located there--you won't want to miss this one! The complex itself is quiet and the pool is large and usually very quiet. There are 3, newly resurfaced tennis courts, as well. If you prefer a practically private beach, at the end of the property one can step onto a beach where turtles feed right at the water's edge. On most mornings, you might be the only person on the beach! If you want the action of Kona Town right near your condo, The Surf and Racquet might not be for you. But if you want a peaceful, serene, relaxing setting among lush tropical gardens and crashing surf, this is where you want to be. It's why I always book at The Surf and Racquet Club. This particular unit is extraordinarily well-stocked with everything you might need for your vacation--from snorkel gear to beach chairs, and a fully stocked gourmet kitchen with everything we needed to prepare meals. We loved our stay in this condo.Shay D.

The condo is exactly as it's photographed! Beautiful furnishings and artwork, well maintained and the owners were very accommodating. I would stay here again during the Whaling Season just to see them come across the lanai and view them closely with the telescope. Our 40th vow renewals were in the park beneath our condo and everything was perfect! Mahalo for the beautiful condo! We had the 3-course $30 dinner at the Sheraton's Rays on the Bay and that was the highlight of our trip. The rays were attracted to the lights and performed for us!Rina

The owner was great to work with notwithstanding unrelated difficulties they were having. The condo is as advertised...probably the best location in the entire facility and well done. There were minor maintenance issues, but none of them were a big deal. The owner was interested in hearing about them and is correcting them ASAP. Parking for two vehicles was never a problem. Tennis courts were generally available,and we were always invited to rotate into doubles games whenever we showed up. This was also a convenient location to launch adventures from, and the location pretty much guarantees most or all of your stay will be sunny. I hope to rent this unit again.Michael K.

Great location, close enough to shopping and restaurants in Kona but out of the hub bub and noise of being right in it all. The complex was peaceful. And you cant beat the lania for watching sunsets, whales, and passing boats. The view is fabulous! We slept every night with sliding glass doors open listening to the surf. The condo is very well equipped. I dont like to do a lot of cooking while on vacation so we didnt utilize the kitchen very much but it is equipped so I think you could cook just abou anything you wanted to. Condo is also equipped good for going to the beach w/ boogie boards, chairs, matts and coolers. The only thing I would have liked to have seen more of was beach towels. We only found 2 in the dryer when we got there. So I bought a couple. After being there a week we did find one more in the closet. Lee and Cali were great to deal with. If we go to the big island again this is the 1st place I will check for availability, and I will recommend to friends and relatives. A couple other things I recomend are the farmers and artisans market in front of the Sheraton on Wednesdays and Saturdsys. And HIGHLY recommend the night manta ray snorkel trip. We did the manta trip with Sunlight On Water, and they run a top notch operation.Jeanette B.
