Nice complex, but unit-2102 desperately needs renovation
Reviewed by Rocco D
The complex itself was nice. The location is okay. Close to a shopping center with a grocery store and several restaurants. A snorkeling beach within walking distance. A small beach for swimming just a few miles away. The water is inaccessible for swimming from this location, but that is not uncommon in Kona. The unit itself was not pleasant and I would not book it again. It looks like there had been no maintenance or upgrading done since the unit was originally built. The levered windows on the front window of the unit did not work properly. Only one set would actually open, the other 2 sets were rusted shut. The screen in the kitchen window was open. The appliances were outdated. The dishwasher was disgusting. It was home to several cockroaches and was so rusted that pieces of the dish rack were falling off. We had to wash the dishes by hand before we felt comfortable using them. The master bed was small and probably the most uncomfortable bed I've ever slept in. While the room was 'clean', everything in it was very old and showing obvious wear. The carpet and furniture looked to be several decades old. I'm sure this place was very nice in the 1980's. The only plus was that it was oceanfront and had a good sized lanai.
Thank you very much for taking some time to review our condo. We always appreciate our guests comments since it helps us improve our services for our future guests.
As you can imagine, with bookings made months and even years in advance, it can be a balancing act to address maintenance issues as they arise while also respecting the privacy and comfort of our guests. Our tropical environment presents an ongoing challenge both inside and out.
Since taking on responsibility for this condo a little less than a year ago I know that the sliding doors have had rollers and screen replaced, the tile on the lanai has been replaced, the entry window has been remodeled, and just this week the screen on that same window has been replaced (after being ordered weeks ago when its frame broke). The controls on the window will now be replaced this week. The owners and I are also in the process of replacing the dishwasher. The lanai furniture and lamps throughout the unit were also replaced during this period. Yes, there is more to be done...and we are working on it whenever time permits.
The entire KKSRC complex receives quarterly pest control treatments...inside and out. We also respond as soon as possible when bugs are discovered between treatments.
My contact information is clearly posted in the condo and in the reservation materials which are given to our guests. At no time was I contacted during their stay. I could have been there within hours to deal with some of the concerns that are raised in this review. We sincerely do strive to help our guests have a truly "aloha" experience.
The property is admittedly far from new. At the same time, the majority of our guests find it clean and comfortable...in a very affordable oceanfront setting. We are working to make it even better.

This is the third or fourth time we have stayed at a oceanfront Keauhou Surf & Racquet Club Condo. This was the first time on a ground floor. And it was ideal for our 7 & 11 yr. old granddaughters and their parents who joined us for just over a week. Their favorite activity was in snorkeling at the Kahalu'u Beach. But they also swam daily in the Resort pool as well. They loved seeing the different birds and finding gekos. They also earned state and National Park badges and didn't stint on the great sightseeing on the Big Island. My wife was a little disappointed in the condition of the condo as compared with other Surf & Racquet Club condos. She sent in a review card for you. We well understand the maintanence diffeculties in a shoreside facility. But the rusted components in the dishwasher and in the guest shower, we felt should have been addressed. The absence of a tray for carrying food to the lanai was also felt daily. She also commented in her review about some other things lacking in a condo kitchen. The guest single beds were a little uncomfortable. All and all we really enjoyed our stay. The great ocean views and wonderful weather can't be beat. Mahalo.

I spent two weeks in this condo with my family. The photos of the condo on the alohoa Condos site form an accurate representation of the space. The condo, especially the kitchen, is a bit dated but it was comfortable and contained everything we needed to enjoy our stay. There were a couple items which could be improved. The lighting in the kitchen was terribly dark. Only one of the three light bulbs was functioning and there were no additional bulbs in the condo.An easy fix. A cleaner came halfway through our stay which was great however she didn't wash the sheets for the pull out couch which we had been using despite having left them aside. This was a bit disappointing because we had paid for the service as part of our reservation, but not the end of the world as there is a washing machine in the unit. We also noticed that the bed cover in the master bedroom was dirty upon arrival. I realize that often times the polyester type covers don't get cleaned but this was gross. We simply set is aside for our stay. This condo along the ocean and we enjoyed many evenings of beautiful sunsets and listening to the surf. The Club itself is very quiet and everyone was friendly. We very much enjoyed the pool and tennis courts. The nearby beach is great for watching the sunset or local fisherman but it is not a swimming or snorkeling beach. The condo is walking distance to stores, restaurants and a snorkeling beach but a drive to any swimming beaches and downtown. All in all we enjoyed our stay at this condo and would recommend it to families, older travelers, and those looking to have a hassle free vacation. Adventurers and outdoor enthusiasts may find this location a bit tame.

I rented 2-102 from Todd for the Lavaman triathlon. The unit is nice with a great ocean view patio. The condo is fully equipped including wifi. Half a mile from a great snorkeling beach, 5 miles from Kona pier and just down the hill from a grocery store, drug store and some restaurants. I biked into Kona most mornings for coffee, Alii drive is mostly flat and has a wide bike lane all the way to town.The grounds are gorgeous, I didn't try the pool or tennis courts, but I found some racquets and balls in the closet. This was a good value for the dollar. Highly recommend.

We stayed in unit 2-102 at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club for 5 days in March. The condo was in an excellent location and had an absolutely amazing view which we enjoyed with our fresh Kona coffee every morning and throughout the day. The condo is a bit tired but it was clean and had everything we needed - most condiments, beach towels, snorkel gear, and tennis racquets as well as Dvds for the kids which were put to good use in the evening. Communication with Todd was excellent. We thoroughly enjoyed staying here and would stay here again if we ever come back to Kona.

We spent a week in this condo in late September and had a great time. The arrangements were easy to make and all our questions were answered. We sipped our morning coffee on the lanai while watching outrigger canoes, fishing boats and dolphins pass by. The furniture is comfortable inside and out, and extras include beach and snorkeling gear, Big Island visitor material, a well-stocked kitchen and plenty of linens. The complex is landscaped and well maintained, with a pool, tennis courts and a barbeque/picnic area, and is close to a good snorkeling beach. We enjoyed the small town of Keahou and the neighboring town of Kona. The proximity to a main highway made it convenient for us to explore other parts of the island to the north and south.

We enjoyed our 11 nights at 2-102. The location is perfect. We saw more whales from the lanai than on the whale watch excursion. Btw, they would come by our area looking for whales.

Thanks to Todd and Bic for opening their condo to our family. It was exactly as we expected and suited us to a T! The condo was right on the water with all the accessories that a family of four required. The furnishings were as in the advert and the family enjoyed it all. The beds were soft and cozy and the breeze from the ocean cooled us in the evening. It is very quiet on this location and we were able to enjoy the evenings on the Lanai enjoying the sunset. In the morning the canoes and kayaks go by and we occasionally saw whales breaching. Fabulous! Occasionally people would walk by enjoying the view which was just fine.

The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet was easy to find from the airport as well as the individual condo 2-102. Access to both the complex and the condo was a simple matter of following the owner's check-in instructions. 2-102 was light, airy and plenty big enough to accomodate four adults. It was well furnished, including beach supplies like boogie boards, beach towels and even sun screen (we didn't realize this at first and added a new boogie board to the collection. We enjoyed the ground floor unit as it didn't require us to haul things upstairs and the unit could be accessed from either the parking lot or from the water side. There was assigned parking and additional visitor parking that was always available. Of the Surf and Racquet club amenities, we used the grilling area twice and the pool once. In our view, the complex is perfectly located with quick access to beaches and Kona as well as to grocery shopping and the main highway for touring. We didn't spend a lot of time in the condo, but we did enjoy having dinner on the lanai and watching the gorgeous sunsets and sometimes whales. As mentioned, the unit was very nice, but we did notice a small ant problem in the kitchen as well as some peeling paint on the kitchen cabinets. Also, a little mold on the bathroom artwork. These were minor things and all and all we really enjoyed our stay.

This has been one of the best vacations rentals I've ever stayed in (and I've stayed in over a dozen). We especially loved the convenient location to the shopping mall, our own private beach (100 yards away), and some of the best snorkeling in Hawaii just minutes away. We loved being on the ground floor and sitting out on the grass or walking out onto the path or sitting out on the picnic table to watch the sunsets. This condo was well equipped (the snorkel/beach gear is a plus), and nicely decorated. We played tennis nearly every morning on the newly resurfaced courts. This location is much more cozy and "local" feeling than being closer to Kona-Kailua town. The sound of the ocean and warm breezes through the screen doors were the ultimate stress soothers. My only wish was that the screen doors could be locked so we could leave them open during the day while we went out for short spurts. But it was easy enough to just open the doors upon return and let the air spread out again. Overall: felt like home, exceptional location, super convenient ground floor lanai access, would definitely come back! Thanks Tod and Bic

The only complaint is when vacationers in the 2 units above us are noisy, which they were this time.

This condo was incredible. It's right on the ocean and close to town. We saw spinner dolphins nearly every day while we had our breakfast on the lanai. Even though we didn't need the second bedroom, how could you resist for this price? The condo had all of the standard amenities you would expect - like microwave, blender, VCR/DVD player, iron with ironing board, ceiling fans in nearly every room including the bathrooms, barbecue tools, pots, pans, etc. What really made it feel like home were the little things you would not expect in a condo like this - immersion blender, rice cooker, waffle iron, sandwich maker, toaster oven, even toothpicks for my Martinis. All you need to bring is the food. The closets were full of boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, tennis equipment, suntan lotions, aloe vera, beach mats, beach towels and an extra fan. (You can really travel light.) There is no air conditioning, but that really wasn't an issue. It doesn't get that hot in Kona, but it does get humid. The condo was not brand new, but it was in good shape. The lanai furniture did appear to be very new and good quality. Thank you for a wonderful stay.

Although the location of the Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club is very convenient, the unit we stayed in (2-102) left much to be desired. The beds were comfortable and clean, as was the living room furniture. The bathrooms and especially the kitchen, were very outdated, run down and dirty. Dirty in terms of being so old and run down that no amount of cleaning or fresh paint would spiff them up. This became very onerous during a two week stay in March 2010. The patio furniture was also sub-standard; not even as nice as the chaise lounges at the community pool. It was not pleasant at all to pay the amount we paid for furnishings and accommodations that were barely tolerable.
Thank you very much for your comments and suggestions. We strive to improve our services and your suggestions are very much appreciated. We are in the process of purchasing new lanai furnitures.

We used the BBQ area several times, which was great for all of the people we had. I would totally recommend this unit for anyone wanting to stay on the Big Island at a reasonable cost. The only negative with a ground floor unit is having to close up the condo when you go out so its a bit stuffy when you return. However, it cools off quickly with the ocean breeze. This unit stays much cooler than the third floor units. Also, the key card for the gate was no longer there but we just used the key code. I was pleased with the goodies that were there for us on our arrival and the condo is extremely close to the golf course (absolutely beautiful to play)and shopping.

It was nice to have soft comfortable beds too as both my Dad and myself suffer from bad backs, so 3 weeks in a comfortable bed was great. The pool was very very nice!! I swam at least twice a day. One of the best things about staying here at the Surf and Racquet club was the really friendly cheerful ground staff, especially Jim the landscape supervisior and a couple of the younger guys, it made all the difference to our stay and one of the biggest reasons I would stay there when I come back.
