We totally enjoyed our stay in Unit #1-303. The ocean breezes, the beautiful views, the birds that would visit us in the morning on the lanai, the rainbow we were lucky to capture. It suited us perfect, family of five adults, we had plenty of room. We were also close to the market and a quaint little shopping center took care of all of our needs. We also enjoyed the pool and the near by beaches. I would highly recommend this Unit for your stay. We are looking forward to a return trip. Thanks so much.

If only I had found some reviews of unit 2-203 that were somewhat more objective, we would have been saved a somewhat unpleasant vacation experience - so, to that effect, here goes.

Yes, the view from the lanai is "heavenly" and the grounds of the complex are like "paradise", but this particular unit falls somewhat short of Eden. We've previously had great experiences at the Keauhou S&R, so perhaps we were spoiled by our earlier accomodations which were nicely appointed and well stocked with condiments, spices, oils, cleaning supplies, & bathroom soap/shampoo dispensers. Unit 2-203 had a half eaten jar of peanut butter. Oh yes, and some bread crumbs. (We know that the units are not required to provide these items - just making a comparison). Any price advantage that this unit may offer will quickly be given up at the local stores due to the meager stock of the kitchen & baths. In addition, the fridge has no icemaker, the stove is of the old exposed electric coil type, the cabinetry is poor, bath & kitchen fixtures are really cheap (35 years experience in the trade. I see posts stating that this unit has been remodeled - Wow, I don't know where one can get this stuff outside of a second hand store), and the cooking utensils are a haphazard collection of items that make it difficult for a novice such as myself to prepare a decent meal. One definitely gets the feeling that the owner is offering the bare minimum that they can get away with and still pull in the bucks. Another, and worse, issue during our stay was the noise from above. I understand that this is not necessarily a fault of unit 2-203, but we had not encountered this problem before at KSRC; perhaps the unit above (2-303) is not carpeted - every footstep, every dropped object, every dragged chair is amplified through the floor into 2-203. If you are as unfortunate as we were to have a full house above you starting their days at 5AM, unless you're a heavy sleeper, you also will be starting your vacation days at 5AM. After one particularly jarring awakening, we tried contacting the owner for advice in saving our vacation - no reply. The local contact returned our call late the following day and mentioned something about talking to the folks upstairs, but the fact is that the people above were, for the most part, not doing anything abnormal; these were just the normal sounds of living raining down upon us. There were no pleasant evenings on the lanai for us on this trip; in fact we made every excuse to stay away from the room that we could: going back just did not seem attractive at all. Our experience with unit 2-203 has made us decide that it is too risky to stay at KSRC - if you end up in a bad situation, the only remedy is to forfeit your payment and go elsewhere. Over the years we've had many enjoyable trips to Hawaii; Unit 2-203 made us, for the first time, somewhat glad to leave.

After an anniversary cruise (2011) around the Hawaiian islands, hubby and I fell in love with the Big Island! So we decided to go back and explore everything Madame Pele has to offer. I researched hotels, resorts, vacation houses, but ultimately decided on a condo. I particularly liked all the amenities of the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club. And how much better can it get having your condo literally feet from the ocean. We used Aoha Condos and decidede on unit 1-203. Thor is the owner of this condo and he was awesome! The condo was a 2 bedroom 2 bathroom on the second floor. Incredible views from the lanai. Hubby and I slept with the sliding glass door open everynight to listen to the water. So relaxing. Never slept so good. We started our mornings watching for dolphins and every evening watching the sunset. The condo was well furnished with everything we needed. Kitchen fully stocked. There was also snorkel masks, boogie boards, binoculars etc for use. It was a nice quiet condo, but was still only a 10 minute drive to the main happenings of Kona. It was the perfect home base for our week long adventure all around that island!!! If I am a lucky woman, I will be back and I will try and get this condo again :)

We just returned from a 2 week stay at the Surf & Racquet Club condo 1-303. It was so amazing to have an oceanfront condo!!! Every morning started with coffee on the lanai and we often watched a pod of spinner dolphins passing by! We were traveling with a big group (4 adults & 4 children) and we had plenty of space. The accommodations are bit on the older side, but everything was fully functioning and much more than what we needed. There were sand toys, boogie boards, chairs, towels, and two ice chests! Also, our kids loved the pool :) Sandy, the property manager, had great communication as well. We are already planning our return!!!

We recently returned from a. 10 day stay in unit #2-303. It was beyond our expectations. The unit was immaculate, completely stocked with all the beach and surf equipment we needed and had the most spectacular views. It was wonderful to sit on our lanai and watch the beautiful sunsets. Working with Sandy made everything for our trip perfect. We look forward to returning soon.
