“Great time in spacious, comfortable, clean condo 2-102”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 13, 2013

We enjoyed a relaxing week in the off season (early December 2012) in this comfortable ground floor condo.Lovely ocean front location with great views (no swimming directly from condo). Condo was clean and spacious, and in a great location to explore different parts of the island. When we were not on the road we enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean and the wonderful sunsets. A very nice swimming and snorkeling beach is close by on Alii Drive. Beach towels, matts, snorkels, flippers and other things left by previous vacationers are very convenient.
Very noise sensitive people might be bothered by hearing neighbors upstairs walk or children run. We didn't mind. As other reviewers mentioned, the dishwasher needs upgrading, some racks are broken and rusty.
The complex is very nice, well maintained and spacious with tennis courts and a good sized pool.

I loved staying at this property. The 2 BR/2BA townhome is in an ideal location - an end unit with a view of the ocean (sits one property behind ocean front). Beautiful grounds very well maintained with gated entry. Swimming pool, tennis courts, close to shopping mall for convenience. Very quiet complex, hear the waves crashing and the birds chirping. Immaculate townhome providing all the necessites to make your stay perfect. Full kitchen, washer and dryer, spacious bedrooms. Rental group is very concerned that everything is perfect for your stay. #59 is extrememly comfortable and has southern and western views. Spent hours on the lania watching sunsets, eating, and playing games. Very nice people in this complex as well. Contact sandy@kona101.com to book. Very popular unit so book early! (I've already booked my time for nextr year.) Staying here was so much better than a hotel for the same price.

Would stay again. Beautiful, clean, well maintained and well appointed home in quiet gated community. Unit 2 is about 10 ft from the water. You could stay there all day, walk a few minutes to an area where you can easily get in the water, or drive to nearby beaches. Really liked the tile floors and fans. Liked hearing the ocean at night from the master bedroom. You have your own assigned parking space. Plenty of surf boards/snorkel gear/etc to borrow if you needed to. Beach towels provided as well. Did not need the air conditioning which you need to choose ahead of time. Did some basic cleaning/laundry before we left to avoid an extra fee. Homeowner was responsive to our call when we had a question, although housekeeper did come by unexpectedly the day before we left to drop off a paper about moving out. Our young adult children liked this place better than the Hilton in Waikoloa or hotel in Hilo and the price was reasonable. Sleeps 4 comfortably.. our 5th used a folding mattress in the living area.

Visited here on a trip with friends with children. This condo is on the second floor. It is on the end giving it a wrap around balcony. Parking was close. The unit is a little outdated but there is a lot of space for two couples to move around. The view is beautiful, you are feet from the ocean. Two bedrooms - although the second is separated from the living area by sliding screen doors. Two bathrooms, one with a tub, w/d in bathroom.
You are away from the shopping, restaurants and beaches but it's not a long drive (I feel you do need a rental car to stay here). There is a shopping center that is walk-able for groceries and a few restaurants and a farmers market. Would definitely stay here again.

Outstanding value. The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club Resort is a gated community with tennis courts, pool, golf near by, and it is only a 5 minute walk to white sandy beaches with great snorkeling. Fun for all ages and abilities. We stayed in unit 6-204 for 7 nights and we loved every minute.

Room Tip: Units overlooking the ocean are beautiful, but very expensive. For the budget minded, a unit overlo...

When my friends and I decided we wanted to take a trip to Hawaii, we knew we wanted to stay at least part of the trip on the Big Island. I did some research and found the great reviews for these condos.

The condo surpassed all of my expectations. It was a great size for the 3 of us. Plenty of room to keep us from getting on each others nerves too soon into the vacation. It was fully stocked and ready for use. There's a shopping center just up the road which made it easy for us to pick up groceries for cooking and we got to enjoy some great breakfast views on the lanai.

The resort was well located and it was easy to get to our various activities for the day.

I would absolutely stay here again and would definitely recommend it to friends and family who wanted to stay on the Big Island.

We have rented this condo on several occasions and look forward to going back every year. The unit is well stocked, comfortable and provides the perfect location to watch the sun set. The unit is well maintained and we have always felt welcome. The location is ideal; snorkeling is a short walk away and shopping and restaurants are near by. The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club Resort is a quiet gated complex with well groomed grounds. It is difficult to return home because we miss the sound of the ocean at night. We look forward to our next trip to the condo.

Room Tip: It is hard to decide whether breakfast or dinner is better on the lanai.
