This rental was in the perfect location (close to many things but not IN downtown Kona). The property was a great fit for a family of 4. The lanai was spectacular. We also loved all beach equipment at our fingertips.
— Laura, Stayed 04/12/2022
We stayed for almost three weeks in condo 1-202 (July 2021) and had one of the best family vacations ever. The condo is well appointed, extremely clean, and the views are absolutely breathtaking. We used the coolers, beach chairs, and beach blankets to explore amazing... more beaches every day. We rushed home each evening to see the beautiful sunsets. We made coffee each morning and watched spinner dolphins and kayakers pass by. We loved the nearby shopping center for its grocery store, sushi bento boxes, and book store. We drove to beaches, farms, waterfalls, and sailboat excursions easily. We bought fruit and fish from local vendors down the street. We listened to the ocean waves as we fell asleep in our comfy beds each night. We couldn’t have enjoyed ourselves more! Thank you so much for your wonderful hospitality! Mahalo! less

Keauhou Surf and Racquet club 1-202
We Stayed in the Keauhou surf and racquet club 1-202. I can’t say enough about this beautiful condo. Everything was in working order. It is very spacious, with Two bedrooms and two full bathrooms. A beautiful full kitchen with all the amenities that you would... more ever need. It was very close to Kona and lots of shopping and wonderful restaurants. The huge lanai was incredible with ocean front views. We fell asleep each night with a wonderful sound of ocean waves. We love this place so much, that we have already booked another stay in September 2022. Mahalo less

This was an excellent vacation and stay! Everything was taken care of and the place is peaceful and welcoming. Could not be better!
— Jochen, Stayed 10/04/2021
Listen to those waves hit the lava shore!
Great place, clean and beautiful. Details of home well thought out and wonderful. Will go back as soon as we can.
— Blake, Stayed 08/25/2021
We had everything we needed at Don and Lauralee's condo. Beautiful view, updated appliances, very clean, spacious spaces for our family of 5. We had plenty of beach toys, snorkeling equipment, lawn chairs, umbrellas, beach towels, etc. to take to the beach with us. Thank... more you for making such an effort to provide all the essentials for our week long stay! Can't wait to come back. less
— Corrie, Stayed 07/19/2021
We absolutely loved this condo for our 3 week adventure. The views from the lanai were incredible! Falling asleep and waking up to the waves was so soothing. Beautiful sunsets! The condo had everything one needed. It was well stocked with pantry items. We especially... more appreciated all the beach equipment like chairs, umbrellas, towels, boogie boards and snorkeling gear. The owners were quick to respond to all our inquiries and needs. We will definitely stay here again and highly recommend it. Mahalo less

Spectacular Location and Sunset View
My family of 4 stayed in this condo over the New Year (during COVID) and it was a wonderful refuge. If you are even hesitating about which condo to book, whether the unit or the complex, you should absolutely jump at the chance to book... more this unit. The setting is stunning, the condo itself has every possible amenity you could want (we joked that it was better stocked than our own home), and the location is perfect. We were mainly there for surfing, diving, and snorkeling. The access to the two beaches up the road, minutes from the complex was perfect. We ate all our meals on the lanai because even though we have not eaten in a restaurant in 9 months, we cannot imagine a better setting. The water is literally 2 meters from the condo and you can hear the surf at all times - so soothing. We left the doors open all the time and enjoyed the outdoor lifestyle. The pool was also quite nice for kids and the tennis courts were fabulous (lit until 10 pm). The gardens/landscaping was like a botanical garden. As you can see, I loved this place and I am a pretty harsh critic. less
— Jennifer, Stayed 01/09/2021
This is a lovely place to stay! It is right on the ocean, but more than that, it's very well set up and maintained. Love the decor, the colors, the furniture - all very cozy. Also impeccably cleaned! It was full stocked and supplied, including... more an unopened bottle of antibacterial hand sanitizer and a new tube of reef-safe sunscreen which we ended up taking with us everywhere! How thoughtful! We were very comfortable and felt like we were at home here during our entire stay. Will surely return! less
— Niki, Stayed 11/12/2020
Awesome. Loved it.
The ocean is right there! The view and sound of the ocean is unobstructed and private. We felt that we were the only ones there. Kudos to the owners as it is very well appointed. They have provided pretty much everything you need for indoor... more and beach living. It is NOT set up sparsely like a typical rental. We really enjoyed the location as it is close to shopping and activities and not too far from the town of Kailua-Kona. There is a great swimming beach about a half mile away and just another mile north was a beach that was perfect for boogie boarding with great breaking waves. We were able to enjoy a few sunsets and sat on the lanai in the dark evening when the moon wasn't out listening to the waves crash on the rocks just feet away. We loved it and hope to be able to return! Mahalo... less
— Patricia & Joe, Stayed 02/18/2020
We will return next year !!
All facilities including rooms and valcony are very clean. We could enjoy a nice ocean front view !!
— Hiroshi Takagi, Stayed 01/15/2020
Great location, uncomfortable lanai furniture
Nicely updated and well stocked condo in a great location. Best feature is oceanfront location. Most challenging feature for us was very uncomfortable lanai furniture (bar height tables and hard wooden chairs) making it impossible to enjoy meals on the lanai. No air conditioning can... more be an issue when the breezes don't blow. less
— Deborah, Stayed 12/24/2019
Sorry to hear that you found the lanai furniture uncomfortable! Most of our guests prefer the taller tables and chairs so that they are able to view the ocean scenery without obstruction. We used to have lower furniture but the lanai railing was in the way of seeing the sights. We chose teak as it is well suited to tropical ocean front environments. It is high quality furniture which is durable, good looking and very stable. We have cushions on all the chairs for comfort. We do our best to accommodate all guests, however, It comes down to personal preference and we are sorry it did not work well for you.
Another great stay
I’ve stayed here three times and it never disappoints. Beautiful condo, extremely well furnished, a real working kitchen, and spectacular oceans views. I also love that I can walk to the nearby beach for some of the best snorkeling on the island. The nearby shopping... more center has a full-sized grocery store and several decent restaurants. Really, this place is perfect. less
— Shirley, Stayed 12/13/2019
I just wrapped up a wonderful, relaxing stay in KKSRC unit 1-202 - my favorite unit of several I've stayed in over the last 5 years. This unit is clean, recently updated, well-stocked with everything you'll need, and perfectly located on the ocean and close... more to the BBQ pavillian. Although convenient to shopping, it's serene and beautiful. I saw dolphins, mongoose, birds, and beautiful sunsets all from the lanai! Don, Laurelee, and Leslie are all excellent to work with. Thanks again for a completely restorative getaway! less

Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club, Condo 1-202
We had a wonderful stay and really enjoyed the condo! The condo was in great shape and in a beautiful location and is well supplied with nearly everything we needed for the stay such as beach chair, umbrellas, coffee maker, kitchen supplies, rice maker, etc.... more We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the lanai for happy hour and watching the sunset - perfect location for that! I will forward this link to my wife who I am sure will also want to provide a review. I have a few opportunities for improvement that I saw and thought I would pass on are: (1) ensure that there are adequate convenience supplies - such as toilet paper and body soap. For a 10 day stay, 2 rolls of toilet paper and half of a container of body wash are not sufficient. Folks paying >$200/night for a stay generally aren't accustomed to the inconvenience of having to take time to shop for these items. (2) potentially switch to white towels that can be bleached or clean the existing towels in a manner to remove the mold/mildew smell. We noticed that as soon as the towels got wet they had a moldy/mildew smell. We alleviated this to a certain degree by hanging the towels on the lanai where they dried faster and washing them after just a few uses. Thank you for helping make our stay in Hawaii wonderful! We will be back! BTW - this was our second stay at this condo and I'm sure it will be a target for us if available on our next visit! - Dave Young less
— David Young, Stayed 11/26/2019
Aloha, David. Mahalo for taking the time to write a great review and we really appreciate all of your comments. You have made some good suggestions and we have followed up on them, including increasing the supply of toilet paper and ensuring that the convenience supplies are topped up before each visit. Regarding the towels, the high humidity creates a challenge in keeping them fresh after a few uses. We encourage guests to use the spare sets of towels and to use the in-condo washer and dryer whenever needed. The Normal Wash cycle ensures the towels will come out nice and fresh. We look forward to having you back as our guests soon! Mahalo.
Beautiful Condo w/ an amazing ocean view and super friendly and available management/ownership. The facilities were excellent, the convenience and location were great, and despite booking very late everything went very smoothly. I highly recommend this option and appreciate how easy and beautiful the entire... more experience was less
— JD, Stayed 08/24/2019
Beautiful place to stay!
We came here to close a difficult house deal. The unit was very nice, super clean and welcoming. The oceanfront is amazing, and the sound of the water is a comforting friend when things are tough. Really sleep good here! Thank you guys for being... more great, and letting us extend our stay, when our deal took a little longer that expected. less
— David, Stayed 06/26/2019
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... more 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. Would stay again! less
— JENNY, Stayed 05/04/2019
This is a great condo located right on the water. It is very clean and well stocked with comfortable furniture and beach supplies (chairs, towels, snorkels, fins, coolers, etc.). The beach about a 8-10 minute walk had great snorkeling. The views from the condo and... more lanai are beautiful. We would definitely stay here again on our next trip to the big Island. less
— Elizabeth, Stayed 01/06/2019
Great Oceanfront Stay
Beautiful condo with perfect views. We have stayed at 3 different Kona Racquet Club Condos over the years.This condo association is very well managed and the grounds are clean,clean,clean. This condo was our favorite. Well decorated with many extras including beach toys and chairs. We... more will return. less

Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club, Condo 1-202 #62674
Form the moment we arrived, this condo provided everything to make our vacation special. From all our kitchen needs, everything was explained very well to help us navigate and the view is extraordinary!! We had a wonderful time and would refer this property as well... more as cant wait to come back. Thank you so much!! Kari and Dean Hay less
— Kari, Stayed 12/04/2018
We loved our stay at this condo and wish we had made it longer. Keauhou is a wonderful location and this condo was perfect*. Comfortable in every way* *As long as you can do without a/c. The ceiling fans and stand up fans were enough... more for us. less
— Amy, Stayed 08/24/2018
Extras are over the top!
I would highly recommend this beautiful, clean, ocean side condo. The owners have gone far above and beyond by sharing a well furnished kitchen, beach chairs, coolers and ice packs, snorkel gear, and a great list of restaurants in the area that are favorites. These... more extras made our vacation! Having coffee on the lanai, with the ocean view, is heavenly! We would love to return! less
— Cynthia Moodie, Stayed 04/26/2018
A Perfect Visit
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.... more 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. less
— John, Stayed 03/27/2018
Beautiful vacation rental
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... more 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. less
— Dave, Stayed 01/10/2018
We had a great stay in this unit. great location, great unit! The view of the ocean is really nice, and so close, and were falling asleep and waking-up to the sound of the waves.... The lanai is large, has tables and long chairs, we... more had all our meals outside. the unit had coolers, icepacks, masks, fins, tubas, boogie boards, everything you need. The pool was nice, but the tennis courts were closed, due to lights issues, I would have played, but, we didn't go to big island for that! Thanks! jp less

Perfect Hawaiian holiday
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... more 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! less
— Sandy, Stayed 04/30/2017
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... more 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. Aloha!! less
— Doreen, Stayed 04/24/2017
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.
immaculate tropical getaway
I took my third trip to Kona at the end of March - my third trip staying in this very unit! The condo is spotless, beatifully furnished (lovely teak patio furniture), has a stunning view of the ocean and garden-like groundss, and is located conveniently... more close to the BBQ grills. This is great, since I cooked fresh fish for meals every day of my trip! Laurelee, Don and Ken are always friendly, responsive to any questions about the island and local attractions, going above and beyond with recommendations. This is my favorite place for relaxing getaway. less
— Jeanne, Stayed 04/09/2017
7 night stay
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... more 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. less
— LouAnn, Stayed 01/25/2017
The condo we rented was perfect. We usually rent for a month to six weeks in Europe each winter, and this was as good as anything we've ever had. The unit was perfectly located, spacious, incredibly well equipped, and spotlessly clean. Our only regret was... more having to leave after just two weeks. We will definitely be returning to Hawaii, and will try to get the same or similar location. less
— James, Stayed 12/22/2016
Paradise on the Big Island!
For anyone looking for a serene, relaxing and lovely location, this is the place. We have stayed at this complex for many years. This is the first time in this condo. It was delightful. Everything we needed for our stay. We love having breakfast on... more the lanai watching the outriggers, boats, dolphins and whales as well as watching the sunset from the lanai.. Highly recommended. less
— Bob and Jan, Stayed 12/13/2016
Our condo was amazing!! From the moment we walked inside.... The view was spectacular. The condo was neat, clean, and well furnished. Everything you need is there for cooking, beach fun, and home stuff. We literally left the screen doors open throughout our stay as... more the weather was wonderful and nothing can beat hearing the ocean waves feet from the condo. There is also a great book that tells you different things you can do and see on the island. That was super helpful. The location is also perfect. Minutes away from beaches, stores, and downtown Kona. I would highly recommend this condo. We will defiantly stay there again! less
— Fred and Amber, Stayed 06/18/2016
This condo is awesome. It was very clean, tidy and spotless. There were all the conviences needed and more. I love having the 2 bed rooms and bath as we traveled with my son who is in his 20's and appreciated the privacy. We enjoyed... more 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. Thanks you for providing us with an awesome place to stay during our stay in Kona. less
— Gayla, Stayed 04/30/2016
The pictures on the website don't do this condo justice. The view off the balcony is beautiful! It was super clean and very homey. The beds were comfortable and everything was updated and in great shape. There was a welcome basket of fruit and goodies... more when we arrived. A wonderful start to our Hawaiian vacation. We highly recommend this unit! less
— Auntjeanie, Stayed 04/02/2016
This was our second time at the Surf and Racquet Club, but the first in this Condo. We loved this one even better than before!! Same amazing ocean-side sights and sounds (including waves that sounded like they were crashing inside the condo!), but being closer... more to the BBQ and pool was great! Condo was very clean and well maintained. We hope to come back again and again and again... Thanks SO much! less

Family Spring Vacation 2016
The condo is fantastic, close to the ocean and very private. The condo was very clean, well maintained and had everything we needed to enjoy our vacation. Thoroughly enjoyed the lani, the beautiful sunsets and relaxing noise of the surf both day and night. The... more owners were very helpful at responding to questions before we arrived, and their book of suggestions in the condo was very helpful. We would recommend the condo to friends and family, and will definitely stay there again if we ever return the the Big Island. less
— Grant, Stayed 03/24/2016
Great Start to Our Stay
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... more 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?) less
— Daniel, Stayed 02/02/2016
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.
One of the best condos I ever stayed in. Spacious, very clean and in every regard above the standard. The kitchen was great (so many kitchen utensils, spices, pots, pans, etc), it felt like home. Huge balcony overlooking the ocean (we saw dolphins from the... more balcony). Plenty of toys for the beach and for the badminton field right across from the unit. Very nice BBQ area right next to the condo. I would definitely stay again! less
— Thomas, Stayed 08/02/2015
I took my parents to Hawaii for a vacation and had a fantastic time. My father has been to Hawaii more than ten times, but this was by far his favorite visit. I highly recommend staying in this great location. We will definitely be back!
— Jamie , Stayed 07/17/2015
Lovely, comfortable condo in a beautiful location.
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,... more 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. less
— MLGG, Stayed 05/25/2015
Fantastic holiday getaway
We spent 11 nights of our summer break at the surf and racquet club, absolutely brilliant. The apartment had pretty much everything we could ask for - in addition to the fully equipped kitchen, we were pleasantly surprised by the beach chairs and boogie boards.... more The supermarket was right next door, and all locations in Kona were a short drive away. Easy ocean access from the condo area would have been a great plus, but the closest beach was anyway only a 10 minute walk away. Loved the sunsets from the lanai! less
— Timo S, Stayed 08/10/2014
Beautifully appointed condo. It had everything that you could wish for to make your stay an excellent experience. The views from the lanai left us speechless. They even had travel guides and other useful tips and information to explore the island. Can't wait to go... more back. less
— PS79, Stayed 07/31/2014
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... more 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. less
— Tom, Stayed 04/01/2014
Great vacation rental - highly recommended.
The Condo at Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club #1-202 was perfect for our vacation. We traveled with 2 adult children. Views of the ocean and sunsets were amazing. We saw a school of spinner dolphins right from our lanai. We all loved the nearby... more beach with snorkeling and beginner surfing. All the beach gear we needed was there for us to use: beach towels, snorkel gear, umbrella, coolers and boogie boards. The grounds were beautiful and well kept. Pool was clean. Bbq grills right outside the unit were so convenient. The condo had all the comforts of home and everything we could want or need was provided. Chuck and Lauralee were easy to work with setting everything up and were always prompt in answering my questions. Location to Kailua-Kona was a little further than expected but no big deal. Walking distance to grocery store and restaurants. less
— Amy, Stayed 03/31/2014
We really enjoyed everything about this place. We have loved the property for a long time with great courts, a location made for lazy snorkeling, a pool for laps, and super walks nearby. This was the first time we were on the ocean - and... more we loved it...The lanai was so great that it was hard to leave to do other things. The waves were spectacular, as were the sunsets, and the whales...even the spinner dolphins.The unit had it all - comfortable, welcoming, everything there that we needed. Even beach and sports gear! Thanks you! less
— Rainey Kellogg, Stayed 02/22/2014
Gorgeous view, gorgeous condo, extremely well-equipped
This is one of the nicest condos we've ever stayed in. It sits right on the ocean's edge, with waves crashing onto the lava rock below. The furnishings are lovely and comfortable, and this is really the best-equipped condo we've ever had: appliances, dishes, amenities,... more spices, food items, even little office supplies like tape, pens, paper, etc. The pool is convenient, and we could walk to some of the best snorkeling we've experienced. It's also an easy drive into town. We will definitely return. less
— Shirl, Stayed 01/25/2014
Perfect oceanfront location!
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... more 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. less

Restful and beautiful
We rented condo 1-202 and it just fit our needs perfectly. The whole rental transaction was super simple. The condo is stocked with everything we needed. Having beach towels, beach chairs and coolers was above and beyond. The pictures of the condo and the view... more do not to it justice. Sitting on the lanai, you are right on the ocean. We had a great time. We will be back! less

A wonderful spot
The Surf and Racquet Club is in a great location. Quiet enough to be restful but close to good dining and grocery shopping. Condo 1-202 was perfect. We had beautiful sunsets and the condo had every amenity necessary for self-catering. We would stay again if... more we get to Kona again and recommend it 100%. less

Best view in Kona!
We stayed at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club Condo 1-202 for 4 days in august 2013. The 2nd floor view from the lanai is amazing. The sound of the surf will lull you to sleep each night. Gorgeous sunsets! The condo in great... more condition and very, very clean. Works really well for family of 4-5 persons. The pool is great and has a covered portico for those of us who don't want to sit in the sun. Didn't use the tennis courts but they are in excellent shape. The grounds are manicured and are really lovely. Overall, one of the nicest units and the best complex I have rented. less

We loved condo 1-202! It was right on the ocean. We enjoyed falling asleep to the sound of the waves. It was very spacious- easily accommodating 2 adults and 2 teens. The kitchen had nice full-size appliances. We also got good use out of the... more 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! less

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... more 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. less

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... more 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! less

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... more 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. less
