We were lucky enough to spend four nights in Unit 1-202 at the Surf and Raquet Club this month. The condo is wonderful- nicely updated and stocked with everything you could possibly want for a vacation. The pool is lovely, the BBQ facilities make outdoor cooking so easy, and sitting on the lanai listening to the surf at night is very soothing! We used the excellent snorkeling equipment at a nearby beach. The Club is located just south of the hustle and bustle of Kona- easy to get to, but far enough away to avoid traffic. I can't recommend this condo enough- but stay away from the townhouses in the complex- they are mostly not updated and much smaller. Mahalo, Lauralee!

Our family of 5 had a great week long stay for our first trip to BI. Wall to wall views and sounds of the ocean to wake to and fall asleep to. There is no AC but the ocean breezes and the fans kept things comfortable and we were usually at the pool during the hottest time of day. The home was stocked with beach and cooking essentials and in-house laundry is so convenient. Don and Laurelee were lovely to deal with, and attentive and responsive with communications.

We had a fantastic stay at your condo. Everything that you could anticipate we could need was available. We used your snorkel equipment, beach chairs, etc. You had virtually every beach accessory imaginable. My two sons and I were able to find everything we needed. There was no need to rent any equipment.

Waking up each morning to the sounds of the surf was wonderful. I really miss it back here in central Texas. We also found everything we needed in your kitchen, including a pizza pan and pizza cutter.

My wife was amazed at how clean the condo was, and she is very picky. You have a wonderful condo and we are looking forward to visiting in the future.

We just returned from our sixth visit to this particular condo. As evidenced by our loyalty, we love it! The condo itself is lovely and tastefully appointed. It has every convenience you would need for relaxing, playing tennis, or going to the beach. The kitchen is well appointed which makes it easy to cook or reheat meals. The best feature of the condo, in my opinion, is the beautiful lanai overlooking the ocean. We eat most of our meals there, and spend much of our time enjoying the tranquility, listening to the waves, and watching the beautiful sunsets.

The condo is located perfectly. There is a strip mall about a quarter-mile away with restaurants, grocery store, and a pharmacy. In the other direction, it is only a few miles to downtown Kona. There are excellent snorkeling spots in both directions. As with all places on the Big Island, a car rental is essential to make the most out of your trip. It is about one hour north so the resorts and beaches on Kohala and about two hours south to the volcano.

I can't say enough about the responsiveness of the owners and the obvious care and attention that they pay to this unit. It is consistently updated, modern, and clean. If you have the opportunity to stay here, you should! We hope to continue returning for years to come.

Our seven-day stay was splendid. We found the condo very comfortable and it was stocked with everything we needed. All we had to do was buy some food and drink and we settled in for a wonderfully restful holiday. The unit was clean, well maintained and beautifully furnished. It was exactly what we wanted and needed.

One suggestion I would make is to put rubber feet on the lanai furniture including the loungers. I am a 5'1" woman who had to be very careful getting onto the high chairs as they tended to slip on the tile floor. Also, I had to stand by when my adult disabled son got on or off the chairs and loungers because of the sliding chair legs. It certainly didn't stop us from enjoying the condo, but it did curtail our spending more time on the lanai.


Manager Response

Mahalo for the feedback on the new lanai furniture, Doreen. We reviewed this with our local contact and cleaning staff and agree with you. We have removed the sliders from the bottom of the chairs and they now have a good stable grip.

My two adult children and I spent a wonderful week at KKSR. Lauralee's directions to get to the complex and into the condo were very complete and easy to follow. The condo was very spacious and wonderfully equipped. The kitchen was very roomy and provided all necessary tools, appliances, etc. I appreciated the various spices and condiments left by other renters. We used the snorkel equipment, boogie boards, chairs, noodles and coolers. There was even a collapsible wagon to haul all the beach stuff if needed. The beds were quite comfortable. The lanai was huge and I enjoyed sitting out there with my coffee each morning. It was also nice to have multiple drying racks for our damp towels and swimsuits. Thanks for providing binoculars and a Hawaii Revealed guide book. The condo is less than half a mile from Kahaluu Beach Park, which has some very nice shore-based snorkeling. There is a KTA supermarket very close by for easy grocery shopping. And the condo is just a few miles from Kailua-Kona for restaurants, etc. I would definitely recommend unit 1-202 at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club.

We enjoyed the lanai spending a lot of time out there watching the waves and enjoying the view. I especially loved sleeping with the sliding door to the lanai open at night while we slept. The sound of the waves made it conducive to having a good nights sleep. We did not miss an air condition at all. Just leaving the window and sliding doors open kept it cool and comfortable. The location was perfect, close enough to the town of Kailua and far enough to be away from all the traffic.We will definitely consider staying here again when we return to Kona.

Great Start to Our Stay

Reviewed by Daniel

Our family of three adults and three kids stayed at this condo for the first leg of our two week visit to the Big Island. It kicked us off right.

First, you should know we arrived just before midnight after 20 hours of travel. So I would have been in no condition or mood to struggle with complicated check ins or disappointment. Thankfully, we had neither. Directions and access were clear and easy, and we entered the condo just before midnight.

First impression - wow, it was spotless. I can't praise the cleaning crew enough. Second, we found a lovely fruit basket and tote welcoming us which improved the prospects for the next morning's breakfast. We quickly moved in, and went to bed that first night, and the sound of the surf outside (you will want to keep the doors open, even if just a crack) gave us all a good night's rest.

The location is wonderful, groceries within an easy walk (KTA Supermarket), and you are close to everything but not crowded at all. Easy trips to Pu`uhonua O Hōnaunau and other sites and beaches, or you can just laze at the condo on the lanai. The property is beautiful. Grounds are kept spotless and we enjoyed watching the sunset from the lanai, and spotted a few whales in the distance. The condo itself seems more spacious than the square footage implies, and we six never felt cramped. Lots of conveniences like shampoo and body wash dispensers in the showers, a very nice and functional kitchen, lots of supplies. I highly recommend this property.

Some criticisms just so you know this is a real review and not a put up job: the coverlet in the Master Bedroom was old and needs to be replaced, and the coffee maker didn't work (but the French Press that was provided did just fine for us). Obviously neither of these things impacted our stay, and I'm sure they won't affect yours, either (they probably will be taken care of now that I've mentioned them - the place was spotless, did I mention that?)

Manager Response

Thanks for the great review, Daniel, and we're happy your group of 6 had such a good time here.  The coffee maker has been replaced with a new one so we are back to our full complement of 3 types of coffee makers.  We have also changed the master bedroom coverlet with a brand new one.  We truly appreciate such balanced honest feedback and we'd love to have you as our guest again when you return to the Big Island.

This is a great condo. It is beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We had everything we needed for a fun stay. They even provided snorkel and beach gear (although we had our own so didn't use it.) The location is perfect, right on the water, beautiful views from the lanai. Also condo is very close to a shopping center with grocery store, pharmacy, and multiple restaurants. Nearby harbor is take-off point for several snorkel tours. You can walk to nearby beach. The condo was well-equipped. We didn't really cook - but the kitchen appeared to have everything that would be needed. There is no AC in the unit and it can get warm in the afternoons - it is important to shut the blinds to keep the sun out if you are going to be away from the condo during the day. But things cool off nicely in the evening. Two suggestions: 1. get different blinds in the bedroom on the mountain side of the condo - when there is a light on in the room and it is dark outside it is quite easy to see everything in that room. And they didn't block out enough of the morning light - making that room rather warm all the time. 2. Please get a larger trashcan in the kitchen. We were regularly taking the bag out of the can and sitting it on the floor so that we could fill the bag to capacity. Overall we loved the condo and would gladly stay there again in the future. It is very beautiful and very comfortable. The owners clearly care about keeping it in great shape. Thanks for sharing your lovely condo with us.

Location was great as it allowed easy access to everything on the Kona Coast, but without needing to stay in the really busy sections. The condo was fully supplied from linens to beach equipment. Even had a set of binoculars for each of us to view happenings on the ocean. The condo was very clean, and even had an intermediate cleaning half way through our two week stay. The only thing to improve the venue is to put a really nice sandy beach nearby. That said, it would just move the crowds to our backdoor and take away from the peaceful setting. So... instead of a walk to the beach it is a 30 minute drive south, or about 50 minutes north. By the way, there is excellent snorkeling very nearby.

Aloha Condos provided excellent, clear, and thoughtful service, making it easy to arrive at, enjoy, and depart from this wonderful oceanfront condo. The unit was clean, well organized, and had everything we needed for a stress-free stay. We prefer staying at the end of alii Drive and away from the hustle and bustle of Kona, and the Surf & Racquet Club site was just what we wanted. We did not use the pool because we prefer the ocean for a swim. However, we did play tennis on the perfect, well maintained tennis courts every day. We spent a substantial amount of time in early mornings and late evenings on the lanai watching spinner dolphins, outrigger canoes, sunsets, and the full moon over the water. Master bedroom immediately off the lanai was great, but the bed could be exchanged for a more uniformly firm mattress. Learning that electricity runs about 45 cents a kilowatt hour curbed our use of the ceiling fans, but we did use them when we didn't have sufficient breeze to remain cool overnight. Convenient to have the KTa grocery up the hill as well as a few decent restaurants nearby. All in all, this was a great location to enjoy a week celebrating our twentieth anniversary.

The kitchen had nice full-size appliances. We also got good use out of the boogie boards and fins. Having laundry in the unit was also a plus, as was wi-fi.Only negatives- bed could be slightly more comfortable, and the living room furniture could use some updating. I'd give it 4.5 stars, if I could. I would definitely stay there again!

Manager Response

We are very happy that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and appreciate the feedback very much! We stay in the condo twice each year and our goal is to ensure that everyone who stays there has an exceptionally positive and memorable experience. We put brand new living room furniture in the condo in December, 2011 and a new master bedroom kingbed suite, including a Serta Perfect Sleeper Glen Haven mattress/box spring, at the same time. We feel that having a comfortable bed is a key priority, but we also realize that, when it comes to mattresses, it is hard to find one that is good for everyone so we chose the middle firmness and felt that would offer the best fit for a variety of guests. Don and I will be there again in September and will have a good look at everything to ensure that all is in excellent condition. We want our guests to have a wonderful, idyllic stay in our condo. Thanks again for the feedback. We really do appreciate it and hope to have you and your family as our guests again in the future!
Mahalo, Don and Laurelee

We had a delightful stay in Condo 1-202. It is a beautiful 2BR, 2Ba condo that is great for two couples. It has everything you need for a comfortable stay and is furnished very nicely. The view is killer - we saw some great sunsets from the lanai and there is a kind of 'blowhole' in the lava rock that is neat too. We fixed grilled fish on the BBQ a couple of nights and ate on the lanai. The Keauhou shopping center is just a short distance. The Thai food place there is great too.

A true paradise!!!

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Keauhou Kona Surf and Racket Club. The condo was just perfect with everything we need and the view, my God, amazing, right in front of the ocean, what's best to wake up each morning with this view!!! It's a very quite location, perfect to stay mellow and also to explore the island. I would recommend this condo to anyone and if we have the chance to come back to Big Island, we will for sure sleep in this wonderful condo!

We were thrilled when we first saw the inside of the condo. It is very clean and well equipped. The kitchen has quality cookware and several nice appliances. The washer and dryer are nearly new, and were nice to have available. It was great to have boogie boards, tennis and badminton rackets, snorkeling equipment, and beach towels, all available within the condo. The lanai was wonderful, with a beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets.

The condo is near a great snorkeling beach, and fairly close to shopping.

excellent condo

Can't say enough about how great this place was. Lots of space. Every thing clean and furnished with high quality amenities. Everything you needed was available, including guide books, snorkle equipment, binoculars and everything in the kitchen you might need. The lanai was spacious and the beds were so comfortable after a long day. Would recommend to anyone.
