This was a beautiful place to stay. If we ever come again we would stay there! It was hard to sleep the first night home without the sounds of the waves hitting the rocks! It would of been nice to have a broom to be able to sweep the floors though!
Great Location and More!

This was our third trip to the Big Island and #187. Why stay anywhere else? Location is key and with the Keauhou shopping center a 5 minute walk, Kalahuu beach for snorkeling 10 minutes, and great eateries less than 5 miles away, life was very good. Alii drive is suitable for jogging and strolling as well as scenic driving. The townhome is well-maintained and we only had to break-in the new local contact on a few points to feel really comfortable. We plan to keep coming back.
A great place to stay!

#187 was really a great place! When we got there to move in, thanks to Rita , the place was spotless! Everything you need for a comfortable stay is included. The deck was the best part - we saw whales, dolphins, rays and turtles. Bbq behind our unit, both gas and charcoal were cleaned daily and good to use. Pool also directly behind the unit, was wonderful and very clean. A shopping center just up the hill had a very nice grocery store as well as a Long's Drug. Both Roco and the new manager were very helpful and took really good care of us and checked up on us to make sure everything was going well without being bothersome.If we go back to Kona, #187 is where we will stay again.
Second trip, awesome experience!
Reviewed by Emily J.
Had another great experience here. Even better than the first time because of the whales, dolphins and adorable sea turtles!! I see there were more ant traps around and as long as I cleaned up the kitchen completely, we had no issues with ants. It felt like our home. Never needed air conditioning if we left our windows open. The best part is falling asleep to the crashing waves. The location is ideal and eating on the lanai was amazing. I can't wait to go back again and I hope this is our 2nd of many, many, many trips. The well stocked kitchen was awesome. We used the rice cooker. Make sure to look through the cabinets to see what the previous people left behind before going to the grocery store. Sometimes they have stuff. Sometimes they don't have stuff (like sugar). Randomly, it was really nice having a brand new sponge under the sink!! There were a few little issues: 1. I would recommend a new hanging thing for the shower upstairs. 2. I was disappointed that nobody told me the washer was broken and had been for months. I really needed to use that washer and ended up hand washing everything in the bathtub. 3. There is a DVD player in the living room. I tried to use 2 different work out Dvds and the DVD player would not work. It was very frustrating. At first it wouldn't recognize the DVD. Then it would play it but then randomly stop and the TV would switch from the DVD player to a different output. The DVD would still be running but the TV refused to show it. I have no idea if it's a DVD problem or a TV problem, but it was very disappointing. 4. The table and chairs are a bit too big for the space in the back. Mostly the chairs. It would be more comfortable with smaller chairs, even if they aren't as nice as those big ones. We had a lot of bruises on our legs from running into corners of the chairs and tables. Despite all of those issues, I would come back and I would definitely recommend staying here.
No Key Didn't Stop Us
Reviewed by SuperMom
We arrived at Townhome #187 on the afternoon of December 23, 2013. Opened the key box with the code provided and guess what? No key. We made 3 phone calls, left 2 messages and spoke to one person who said he didn't have a key. Did he offer to send someone out to help us? Nope. Just "sorry, I don't have a key." So, being a resourceful family, we found a way to break into the unit. No worries, nothing was actually broken. But we did find 2 keys inside. The 3rd key was missing. After we had returned home from Hawaii we were contacted and asked where the 3rd key was. We left 2 notes, one with a key in the key box and one with the key on the table inside explaining that there wasn't a 3rd key. Whether the previous occupants hadn't replaced it or the cleaning crew, somebody screwed up. Apparently we should have called the man who contacted us after our stay. Funny, his contact information wasn't on any of our paperwork. We called the only 3 numbers we had and apparently no one forwarded the message to him, the only person who could help us. What would have made our stay (family with 3 boys) much better, besides not having to break into the unit upon arrival, would have been some kind of instruction manual with things like the WiFi password. Thanks for providing the WiFi but no one can use it if you don't provide the password. (Hint: it's in 4 pt. font on a sticker on the bottom of the router.) You could also include where to take the trash and a contact number for someone who can actually help you if you have trouble. It is quite distressing that no one from aloha Condos ever called to follow up with our key situation. We did call and let the only person who answered our calls for help know that we had broken into the unit. He didn't seem overly concerned. If it were my town home, I would be concerned. Otherwise we had a lovely vacation snorkeling, boogie boarding, surfing, paddle boarding, etc. The Big Island does not disappoint. There is so much to do. Mahalo.
187 Continues To Please
Reviewed by Harry D
We returned to 187 after a hiatus of almost 2 years and it felt like returning to an idyllic home. Everything, with some minor wear and tear issues, was as we remembered it. The best feature to us is the location: the surf is only 20 feet from the lanai, the townhome is well-built with plenty of up-to-date appliances and amenities, and the surrounding campus/complex is extremely well maintained. The Keauhou shopping center is just up the road with some pretty good restaurants. We loved being there, didn't want to leave, and plan to come back soon.

The condo was clean, in great condition, and in a great location for our family needs. We walked to great snorkeling, historical ruins, and beaches. Grocery shopping and a few restaurants were a short drive away. We enjoyed the sunset each evening and breakfast on the lanai each morning with an intimate view of the Pacific Ocean.

Came here on the begining half of our honeymoon. It was perfect. Husband fished off the rocks. Lots of waves crashing up at him. Gorgeous pictures. The kitchen was well stocked. Appliances up to date. Fans kept the rooms nice and cool. The waves crashing sometimes felt like they were going to crash in our rooms ... which I really enjoyed. Two bathrooms are great. Check the cabinets before buying anything! Lots of left over stuff so you don't have to buy a huge bottle of something when there's a little left from previous vacationers! There is a small ant problem - meaning just don't leave food out cuz they'll find 'em. There was work being done on the window during our stay. Not a problem, just wish it was communicated to us at some point.
Reviewed by Tucson travelers
Townhome #187 was the most beautiful location on the Big Island. The crashing ocean waves were wonderful to see and hear. The negative is that the coast is so rocky, and we could see areas that would have been perfect for snorkeling, but no way to access them safely. However, the beach two blocks away was great for snorkeling. We saw an abundance of fish, and swam with sea turtles. We watched a large pod of dolphins from the lanai. The townhouse has a/c on the first floor. We never used it. Open the doors and windows and the fans worked very well. The furniture was sturdy and comfortable. The kitchen well equipped. I can't think of a thing that we lacked. We didn't use the pool, but it was being well enjoyed by others. The tennis courts were in use too. Groundskeeping was being done while we were there, but the workers were very quiet and professional. I hate to recommend the townhome, because we would want it to be available for our use again, but we won't be selfish. Just a warning that it is two story, so there are steps (for those who find that a problem.) One improvement would be information about the area, the beach, and restaurant menus. Plus directions to the wonderful shopping center just up the hill, including a good Urgent Care facility. (We used that on our last trip.) In a couple of words: wonderful and convenient
Why stay anywhere else on the Big Island!!!
Reviewed by Alan
Because this is probably the best place you'll find for the best price. Great location: 1min drive or 8-10min walk to the nearby beach (turn left when exiting the condo and it's the first beach on the left). Tons of fish, and we spotted 3 turtles in 2 mornings! 10min drive to the main Kailua-Kona restaurants and shop, and 1.5-2 hours to the north end and south end of the island... right in the middle of everything. Magnificent view: Lanai opens up to the ocean, literally metres from your seat. Watch the sunsets in private and in the comfort of the home. Condo itself: Has everything you need... from a blender, to tennis rackets, to beach chairs, to a full knife set. There's air-conditioning on the first floor but realistically you won't need it at all... we switched it on for maybe 3 hours in the 5 days that we were there. Also, there are 3 tennis courts in perfect condition! Many thanks to Rocco for sharing this place with us. We truly enjoyed it and would most definitely return to this unit on our next visit to the island! And thank you for accommodating the last-minute extension requested too! Mahalo!
Relaxing townhouse with ocean backyard
Reviewed by Dave
We found townhouse 187 to be very clean and fully stocked with kitchen supplies, even a full spice rack. There were beach towels and the kitchen closet contained snorkeling gear, coolers, tennis rackets, and a couple old lawn chairs. The location is very quiete and the swimming pool is right on the other side of the driveway. It was very easy to keep the townhouse clean since there were plenty of cleaning supplies and the tile floor, granite countertops, and glass tops on the tables were very easy to keep clean. This was nice because that meant for time for getting out and doing things. The snorkeling bay is a 10 minute walk and is like swimming in an aquarium. We brought an underwater case for our point and shoot camera and that worked very well. It was a short drive up the hill to the market, but we found KTa in Kona to have better fruits and L&L; barbeque in Captain Cook was much more laid back. Overall, it was very clean, quite, and made a good home base for trips.
On the water in beautiful Kona
Reviewed by Randy
Overall we had an excellent stay in townhome 187 at the Surf and Racquet club. We used the well equipped kitchen every morning for breakfast. The bathrooms and sleeping arrangements are comfortable for my family of 5, although 1 of us slept on the fold out sofa bed in the family room. This place is less than 15m from the water's edge, so relaxing on the Lanai is a special treat. We had the windows and doors open any time we were in the town home. The negatives are minor. Limited WiFi is available only from the neighbors, the upstairs bath is a standup shower only and plan to rent or bring you own snorkeling and water play toys. The town home does have a couple tennis racquets that we used nearly daily to play on the well maintained courts, and folding chairs for relaxing at the beaches. The big positives are that the best snorkeling beach is just a few hundred meters north of the property (we never walked though, always drove), the weather in Kona is warm and sunny, and restaurants, sand beaches and 2 different marinas are just a few minutes drive away.

Great location for access to the many attractions on the Big Island. Surf and Racquet Club is a quiet and pleasant location for a get-a-way to the island. Only negatives were the snorkeling gear and the wireless internet. Snorkeling masks are useless because of old or damaged seals for the face. Local rentals provide much better/useable equipment. The wireless internet availability in the unit did not exist and presents a real problem for today's requirement of staying connected. The guest book indicated that lack of wireless service was a major issue for guest staying at the unit.

Walked in the front door and saw the ocean right off the back porch. Not some euphemistic "ocean front" or "ocean view" where you squint at a postage-stamp size piece of ocean between other people's condos. Entry to complex and unit easy, just followed instructions. Check-out tasks not too onerous & got my deposit back. Very nice that there was beach stuff -- snorkels, mats, boards -- so we didn't have to run out to Walmart and buy all this stuff our first few hours in Kailua. Also very nice that there are snorkeling and swimming beached within 3 miles to the north. Quiet neighbors, no annoying dogs or children. Only thing missing is air conditioning in the upstairs bedroom on the land side. Ocean side upstairs bedroom very pleasant at night with sea breeze and sound of surf.

If you want a vacation rental that will take your breath away, look no further. Townhouse 187 is awesome. From the moment you open the front door and see the waves crashing on the lava beyond the sliding lanai door, to the time you prepare your first meal in the fantastic kitchen (granite countertops, high-end appliances and waves crashing outside your kitchen window) to the end of the day when you crawl into the heavenly bed, you won't be disappointed . We've stayed at the Keauhou Surf and Racquet club several times, all through private owner rentals, all oceanfront. Mostly great, (all aloha Condos), one time lousy, (not aloha Condos). The location is superb, with terrific snorkeling right next door at Kahaluu Beach Park. The grounds of the complex are meticulously maintained. The oceanfront units are especially nice as you are insulated from traffic. Not mention you'll have front row seats for the most beautiful sunsets. Alohacondos.com, makes contracting for Townhouse 187 a breeze. Check-in was made easy by Rocco, who sent an email the week of our departure with all the information, directions, gate codes etc. Being an end unit, Townhouse 187 has more light and ventilation than others on the oceanfront, allowing you to take advantge of the cool tradewinds. From the top-to-bottom quality remodel, (both materials and craftsmanship), to the luxurious linens, we could not have wished for better. It was really nice to have a full-size washer and dryer in the unit too. We sincerely hope to stay here again.
