My checklist generally consists of the following: clean, comfortable, great view, aesthetically pleasing furnishings, well appointed kitchen, quiet atmosphere. This place hit all the marks! Although we had planned ahead of time that we would support the local businesses rather then cook for ourselves, this... more kitchen tempted us. They really did a lovely job on this unit. The beds were comfortable (although I might suggest updating/upgrading the linens and pillows in the master, though not a big deal overall). It was amazing to fall asleep to the sound of the waves and wake to a beautiful ocean view. We spent our days exploring the beautiful island and our evenings relaxing on the lanai enjoying the sunset. Building 5 is on the end and somewhat isolated from the others which made for a quiet stay. We truly appreciated our stay here and all of the thoughtful touches that the owners have implemented. We would definitely recommend and return! Mahalo!!! less

Keauhou Surf & Racquet Club Condo 5-203
My wife Debby & I enjoyed our 10 day stay at the above mentioned condo, it had everything & needs no improving. We would like to reserve it or 5-304 or 5-204 next year in late January. Please contact me via email on reservation info... more for these 3-condos for January 2021. Also, please extend our sincere thanks to Scott & Martha Disney. Aloha, Warren & Debby Wettstein less

Beautiful Condo and View
Beautiful condo. Stunning view - could sit there all day soaking it in. Furniture is super inviting and comfortable. Amenities and supplies in the condo exceeded expectations. Would definitely stay again. Downside - pillows are flat as pancakes, they need replacing and needs pillow cases... more (we couldn't find any for extra pillows). We had to use the Raid for the first 3 days chasing ants away from everywhere. We've stayed on Kona prior and know bugs are an issue. Orkin came the day before we left; however they needed to be there sooner! less

just keeps getting better
We have been coming to Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club for over thirty years. The grounds seemed to be in the best condition ever. And the same is certainly true of the individual units-at least it is true of Unit 5-203. We have stayed on... more all three floors and in both two and three bedrooms units. The owners all have great pride of ownership and we never been disappointed in the cleanliness or thoughtfulness of the owners in preparing for their guests. Having said that, 5-203 was the best unit we have stayed in. The owners have obviously spent a great deal of money on updating everything from the windows and sliding patio door to the reconfiguration of the main room, replacing the boxy kitchen and eating area with a long and useful bar. EVERYTHING you could want to enjoy your unit was there. One very small suggestion--leave directions on how to use the television. All systems are a little different and we did have to call the manager. Like the unit, he was exceptional. Great, great trip. Thank you. less
— Garry , Stayed 02/01/2020
Best unit in this KKSR location. Great view private and luxurious furnishing. Also mist pricy.
We have rented various condos annually from this same complex since 1982. This is definitely our favorite unit.
— Robert, Stayed 01/19/2020
Thank you Scott and Martha for creating such a truly wonderful vacation experience for your guests!
The main reasons we booked this place were: the updated kitchen, the giant lanai, and the, wow(!), the stunning view. All were more than we hoped for. The kitchen is extremely well stocked, spacious and clean. And it was set up in a very cook-friendly... more way, so we didn’t spend a lot of time searching for things. We’re used to cooking on gas and it took us a minute to get used to the cooktop, but it was a very nice stove. The daytime views were delightfully ever-changing with the weather…and the lights of Kona at night were an added bonus. Because I appreciate a well-rounded review, I’ll just mention the two things that I think certain people might like to know ahead in order to pick the place that’s most suited to them (but they are not complaints, we have none of those). -First, the guests above us were very noticeable to us. They started early and went late…sort of thudding back and forth and opening and closing doors/cabinets. Thankfully they were quiet between midnight and 7am-ish (would have preferred they start later in the a.m., but at least there was that). I’m guessing they weren’t actually being as loud as they sounded. -Second, as per the listing, there’s no a/c and we got pretty warm at times. “Opening and shutting” the house at the right times of day and using the ceiling fans helped a lot. And there was an awesome floor fan for a little extra cooling when needed in the bedroom. Yes, a couple of times we were a bit uncomfortable but it passed and, honestly, not being in an air-conditioned place felt more authentically Hawaiian. And now, more of our highlights: -Semi-private little beach if you walk across the property (5 minutes or so, north past the pool); very few people frequented it when we were there and watching the sunset from it was magical. -A popular, white-sand(ish) beach very close. It’s also walking distance but on a busy road. However, unless you go early, parking at the beach is limited, so walking is an option. Across the street is a little place that rents boards/offers lessons, and the bay (as I recall) is known to be one of the better spots for those just learning. -The Keauhou Shopping Center (walking distance), includes a good-sized market. -The fresh-fish truck that would sometimes show up just down the hill from the shopping center. -Sam Choy’s just above the shopping center. Has something like a 280-degree view of the ocean! Awesome place for happy hour. Thanks Scott for the spot-on recommendation! -Rays on the Bay at the Sheraton. About 1.5 miles away. The manta rays come play in the lights they shine out on the bay. On Wednesdays (and some Saturdays) there is a local artisans’ market. -I’m a fiber artist and really appreciated the high-quality linens, including decorative pieces like the table runner and the framed indigo shibori behind the sofa. Even the sofa blanket was a little work of art. Somehow the fact that Martha and Scott chose to decorate with such unique pieces speaks volumes about their aloha spirit :) All-in all, pretty much anything we could have wanted was there for us. We found it to be everything the photos promised and much much more. less
— Sherry, Stayed 01/06/2020
Our stay in this beautiful condo was perfect! Everything you could possibly need is there, including beach chairs and towels. The place was remodeled and decorated very nicely. It was very hard to leave. Great location also, just out of the busy area and close... more to a good beach park. We will definitely be back! Thank you less
— Thomas, Stayed 12/18/2019
Condo in Kailua-Kona
This was the nicest place I have ever stayed in Hawaii. Every detail was perfect. There were three of us, and we all agreed we would return and stay in this unit. In addition to the condo itself, the pool was great, the grounds were... more beautiful, and the location was wonderful, close to the town Kailua and a shopping center 1/4 mile away. Thanks you for making our vacation so special. less
— Judith Young, Stayed 11/02/2019
Thanks for the very nice review! We’re so glad you enjoyed your stay. Take care, Scott
Beautifully renovated and decorated. The gourmet kitchen is wonderful to cook in. The gift basket was a lovely surprise, full of delicious local products. The view is spectacular!
— Keith & Lynne, Stayed 10/22/2019
This was our first time to the big island. We loved this remodeled unit. This condo had everything we needed. The unit is spotless clean and well furnished. It was convenient to have grocery store, drug store and restaurants all within a 5 mins drive.... more A PERFECT condo with a beautiful view! Highly recommended and we'd stay here again!!!! less

Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club, Unit 5-203
Loved this remodeled unit with large lanai and great ocean-front views. Would definitely stay here again but in the cooler months.
— Paul and Mary, Stayed 08/20/2019
We loved staying at the Surf and Racquet Club. We were there on business and had plenty of room for our team. The view of the ocean was a great way to wake up in the morning, enjoy coffee, check emails and have a peaceful... more moment before the start of our long work days. Wish we had some air conditioning to make it even more comfortable, but the fans helped a lot. We'd stay here again! less
— Michelle, Stayed 10/20/2018
Beautiful ocean view and nice large balcony. Saw dolphins, lots of boat traffic and beautiful rainbows, sunsets and moon sets. Unfortunately The fans and ceiling fans were filthy dirty and there was a used bar of soap in the master shower waiting for us, gross!... more There were labels all over, even on the kitchen cabinets of warnings to not do certain things or you’ll be charged extra. There were no amenity items that we’ve become acustom to when staying at Aloha rental properties, no body wash and just enough laundry soap for three loads of laundry no extra sheets and no flashlights. The pepper shaker was empty. Also smelled cigarette smoke from another unit during our stay. less
— Kristina and Dave, Stayed 10/09/2018
We are sorry to hear you were not happy with your stay. We have never had any complaints about our unit but will certainly be following up to ensure it is spotless for future guests.
KKSR condo #5-203
Great condo in great location on the Big Island. Condo very clean, well stocked in kitchen and with beach items, towels, chairs etc. Fantastic views of coast and Kona town from condo. Owners and on site manager very easy to work with. Would definitely stay... more in 5-203 again! Mahalo! less
— Joan and Chuck, Stayed 08/17/2018
We had the pleasure of staying at this Condo this July. Loved the view from the balcony and falling asleep to the sound of the water. We also loved having snorkel gear/beach chairs /beach towels to use as we explored many beaches. The kitchen is... more well supplied with everything you would need and then some. The Grounds were lovely and the pool area was spotless! The beds were extremely comfortable with lots of pillows! It was so convenient to have a grocery store/drug store and restaurants all within a 5 min drive or 15 mins into the town of kona for a huge selection of restaurants and shopping. less
— Tracy, Stayed 07/24/2018
If you like a pretty private & safe place to stay right on the ocean & walking distance to a fantastic snorkeling location, I highly recommend this place. I loved being on the second floor to snooze on the lanai without the worry of anyone... more walking up to me, not that anyone walks around anyway for this condo is located in the last bank of buildings so only the few residents in these condo's ever walk by. We also felt very safe leaving our windows open all day & night, being on the this floor. Nice & clean with some condiments in the cupboards & a nice fresh fruit basket & canvas bag waiting for us. Would come back to this unit again! less
— Susan, Stayed 04/14/2018
Spectacular Condo with an amazing ocean view!
A+++++++ This condo is a diamond in the rough. It has 2 separate bedrooms each with it's own bathroom. A main living space leads out to a large deck with a ocean view that is spectacular! A full kitchen is also contained within the unit... more that is fully stocked with all appliances, fridge, dishes pots/pans and cutlery you will ever need to cook for yourself. Available for use are beach chairs, knee boards, beach towels and other items to enjoy your time at the water/beach. This place was well worth the visit! HIGHLY RECOMMENDED by me and my other 3 travelling crew. less
— Jon, Stayed 04/09/2018
Lucky to find this
We have rented many different ocean front condos at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club over the last 40 years. This is one of our top choices. The unit is spotlessly clean and well furnished (not overdone and everything needed is supplied). The orientation... more to the ocean provides more privacy than most other units. We have stayed in this unit three times and have booked our return in 2018. less
— The Schwarzkopfs, Stayed 03/16/2018
This condo was so beautiful and clean! Everything was immaculate. We loved the view from the lanai, where we watched many beautiful sunsets. The location was great too. It had easy access to Kona and all the west side attractions. I hope to stay there... more again! less
— Abby, Stayed 01/25/2018
What a lovely and magical place to spend a holiday. Sound of waves crashing against the rocks to wake up to and watch a beautiful sunset before bed. Welcome basket of fruit was much appreciated. Suite was clean and well planned out. Would definitely stay... more again. less
— Zoie, Stayed 01/15/2018
Great stay in a wonderful place
The condo has everything you want, but the best part is sitting on the balcony and looking directly at the ocean. Everything was easy, and there were organic local fruits and Kona coffee on the kitchen counter! Very nice place to relax!
— Jochen, Stayed 12/11/2017
My family recently spent a week in condo 5-203 and couldn't have been happier. The condo was very clean, and well stocked for all of our needs. Plenty of room for my wife and I, plus our two adult kids. Being so close to the... more ocean was a joy to wake up to every morning. Elizabeth was great to work with, and made the booking and billing very easy. less
— Dave, Stayed 11/29/2017
Meet and exceeds expectations
This was our first visit to the big island. We are so pleased that we chose the Kona side and are ecstatic that we chose 5-203 condo. Without a doubt, it meet and exceeded our expectations. It's location between the golf course fairway and the... more ocean frontage is unparalleled from our perspective. The ocean waves lapping against the lava bulkhead are very close and can be heard day and night. It's wonderful! The unit itself is very attractive and nicely maintained. The owner, who was very easy to work with, went out of her way to provide information regarding the stay in the condo as well as traveling around the island. Bottom line, our stay was exceptional from start to finish. We would not hesitate to recommend this unit and owner to any of our friends and family who intend to visit the island. less
— LAWRENCE, Stayed 08/28/2017
Beautiful Location in the Surf and racquet Club
We loved our stay in condo 5-203. Elizabeth has really kept up the maintenance of the condo. Everything was great. Our second day there was a knock on the door, and a beautiful welcome basket of fresh island fruit, jams, and coffee were delivered to... more us. We would definitely go back to this condo. less
— Ellie , Stayed 06/07/2017
The condo was absolutely beautiful with a wonderful view of the ocean. It included everything we needed but if you are expecting there to be snorkeling gear (I noticed some reviews mentioned that their condos came with such) there was not anything like that available.
— The Alemans, Stayed 05/23/2017
A very pleasant place to stay.
We have stayed in several other condos in the Kona S&RC but, 5-203 was the best for our needs. It is clean, efficient, quiet, well furnished and it has a great view of the ocean. Yes, we're certainly plan to return.
— Attila Tornallyay , Stayed 05/17/2017
Kona Surf and Racquet is a beautifully maintained oceanfront property. Pool and tennis courts are great. This condo is well-equipped and very clean. Oceanfront lanai cannot be beat.
— Susan , Stayed 02/05/2017
August 2016 Stay
My wife and I recently completed a four night at the condo in early August 2016. This is our second time at the Racquet Club, so we were familiar with the area, property, etc. The condo is in building 5, a two bedroom unit on... more the second floor at the north end of the complex. It's about a 20 minute drive south from the Kona airport, depending on traffic. Very quiet, very relaxing with a great view of the shore and sea. The condo was extremely clean, very important to us. Shower water pressure is great, the towels are fluffy and thick.A welcome basket with local fruits and jams awaited us. The condo has all of the amenities one would ask for, especially in the kitchen. The lanai is spacious, chairs are comfortable, and has mechanized sunscreen which can be lowered for the late afternoon sun. The main bedroom is literally less than 50 feet from the ocean. The wave sounds lull you to sleep and greet you every morning. The entire condo conplex was quite during our stay. We did not use any of the other condo facilities and the pool was undergoing rehab while we were there. Elizabethm the owner, advised us of the pool situation and graviously waived the conco cleaning fees. If you are a beach person, which we are not, there are beaches just south of the property. I would book this property again in a heartbeat and will do so on the next trip to the big island less
— David, Stayed 08/27/2016
Condo Rev iew
This condo was really comfortable, well equipped and had a beautiful view. Being on the second floor, ocean front, there was usually a nice breeze to help cool the place down. We spent nearly every evening on the Lanai enjoying the sunset. The lanai blinds... more helped cut down the glare just before sunset. The wooden screens for the lanai doors allowed in a breeze while also helping cut down the glare during the late afternoon. They did allow in enough light that the bedrooms didn't stay dark past seven or eight in the morning, but that was fine since we're early risers and were able to get to the beach earlier. Stores open early in Kona and Keauhou, too. less
— Mike, Stayed 07/27/2016
My husband and I had a FABULOUS stay at the condo! It was clean and well-stocked - even chairs, cooler and umbrella for the beach. The ocean was relaxing to listen to and lulled us to sleep. We thoroughly enjoyed our morning and evening on... more the Lanai. We especially liked having the coffee from the wonderful basket of coffee and fruit in the morning. I also liked staying in the condo on the end because it was very quiet and private. We would love to come back again. The condo and island are perfect for a relaxing vacation. less
— Sheryl, Stayed 01/08/2016
warming in the sun
A perfect condo with a beautiful view. And quiet. It was a wonderful experience and what a nice welcoming gift. We Thank You.
— Howard & Roberta, Stayed 12/29/2015
Wonderful condo !!!
This condo was extremely clean and well furnished. The lanai was great. We could watch the sunsets every night. During the day we saw dolphins swimming by. The whales normally return around December 1, but our first sighting was December 5. There were a couple... more of them and they put on a 15 minute show breaching out of the water and slapping their fins. I would recommend this location to anyone who doesn't care if they are right on the beach as there is volcanic rock all along this part of the oceanfront. There is a beach nearby and a very nice pool. The condo had everything we could need. The kitchen was well equipped. It is a very quiet location. We were very pleased with our stay and would stay again. less
— Bob and Jan, Stayed 12/11/2015
We rented this unit for our son and his family 2 adults and two boys, they loved it. The master bedroom is right on the ocean side and is very nice for sleeping. It was unusually hot this time of year and there of course... more is no AC, it would be nice to have a few plug in fans to help circulate the air. The unit is furnished nicely and a well stocked kitchen, although no condiments. No hand soap or laundry soap either. All in all it was a nice vacation and nice place to begin and end your day. Mahalo less
— James A, Stayed 11/02/2015
Carolyn and Jim My apologies on some missing items for your family's comfort. We always strive to make your vacation enjoyable. This year the weather has been exceedingly hot and humid for Hawaii and I will research purchasing a fan or two for the bedrooms. My concern has been a family with young children who accidentally put their little hands or fingers in the fan blades, or tips the fan unit over onto themselves. Obtaining portable fans is a safety and a liability issue for owners. I will be following up with my housekeeper who is top notch. I am sorry the hand soap in the bathrooms were missing. Generally, there is a Soft Soap container with liquid soap at each sink in each bathroom, and bar soap in the showers. Additionally, 3-4 blue pods of laundry soap are on the shelf for the washer. I will follow up on these items. Due to health reasons and sanitation I have instructed my cleaning crew to always dispose of any perishable food items including condiments, except spices. These perishable food items can attract pests and bugs to the unit. Thank you for staying at our unit. We hope to see you soon in the future.
Lovely Getaway in Keauhou
This was our 6th visit to the Big Island but our first stay at the Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club in Unit 5-203. Having stayed at a variety of houses/condos, this was by far the nicest place we have ever stayed! We were greeted by... more a lovely gift basket filled with island fruit, jam, tote bag, and coffee from the Kanalani Ohana Organic Farm. The view is amazing from the lanai and we enjoyed sitting out on the lanai immensely. This unit is very well appointed, stocked with everything a person could need, is very clean, and very quiet. I loved all the beautiful artwork in the unit! The ample supply of beach towels, beach chairs, ice chests, and water toys were much appreciated by my family. My sons loved the pool and used it every evening. The unit is ideally located near town, beaches, and shopping. The next time we come to the Big Island we will definitely stay in 5-203 again! less
— Katrina, Stayed 07/21/2015
2nd Visit to Unit 5-203
This was our 2nd time in this spacious condo unit. We stayed here two years ago and again found it to be clean, had a great supply of dishes and kitchen items; plus a full-size washer and dryer (not the small apartment-size ones that most... more vacation rentals have)! Beds and other furnishings were very comfortable. The basket of fresh fruit, coffee and jam was extra nice! Peaceful location just a couple miles away from the hustle and bustle of Kailua-Kona. Great ocean-front sunset views! The only negative thing I can say is that this unit is on the second floor without an elevator and it gets difficult to carry the luggage up and down the stairs as we get older. less
— AlohaSnorkel, Stayed 03/05/2015
A Beautiful Condo
A great location...an oceanfront unit with a large lanai. Beautiful vista with gorgeous sunsets accompanied by the sounds of crashing surf and onshore breezes. Unit is clean and well-equipped with furnishings and appliances in very good condition. Even with some nits this is easily the... more nicest condo that we've rented in four stays on the island. We enjoyed our twenty day stay in this condo and would rent it again on another visit. Nits: very warm indoors (mid-eighties) on those sunny September afternoons...A/C would be a welcome addition to the numerous ceiling fans. Also, we did have multiple incursions by ants... that was somewhat annoying, especially for a unit in this price range. less

The Best condo stayed in Internationally!
Every one of our 21 days at Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club, Condo 5-203, either my husband, 19 year old or 21 year old son, or myself, would comment on how perfect the condo and the property was and how we did not see... more anything that came close to this in Kona. We have stayed all over the world, and have not found a place that provided not only for our needs, comfort and beyond. We stumbled on the Surf and Racquet Club a year prior after the immediate disappointment with our 4 star hotel and stayed up all night trying to find another accommodation. The following year, I spent days online trying to find a condo within this property for the three weeks we would be at Kona for my niece's wedding. Condo 5-203 was much improved over what seemed almost perfection of the condo last year. We loved having the second bedroom facing the golf course rather than the parking lot, and loved the same ocean front view from the master bedroom and living room. We preferred Building 5 as it is the farthest from the entrance and most private. The unit has updated furniture and decor and very comfortable. We spent hours out on the large lanai and enjoyed the shade and ocean breeze. It is rare to find a house or condo with air conditioning, but having a ceiling fan in very room, including the bathrooms, made it tolerable, especially the nights with the ocean and golf course breezes. We prepared many a meals for family and friends and were delighted to have such a well equipped kitchen. The owner and property manager were easy to reach when questions arose. When we were threatened with two hurricanes, the management gave us detailed instructions on how to carry on. The property grounds are exquisitely designed with stunning tropical plants, and constant upkeep. The location could not be better, close to a basic shopping centre, though I did most of my main shopping at Costco which was about a 20 minute drive. Every day I would exclaim at the incredibly beautiful scenic drive off the highway to the condo. My sons and husband are serious cyclists and enjoyed the routes from the condo, albeit the difficulty with the hills. I prefer walking/running and never tired of the ocean view route. We barbecued most evenings. We felt especially safe with it being a gated community. We will return and stay hopefully at this exact condo next time we are in Kona visiting our family, and will likely book a second condo for my parents. less

There is not another spot on earth more wonderful.
Fantastic, oceanfront location. Well equipped condo with lanai on the ocean. Pool and grounds in great condition. Easy walk to snorkelling beach and grocery store. All around favourite travel spot.

Wow, wowie, wow, wow
Great place in all respects. The ocean is right outside the window and the whales just offshore. The waves were spectacular and the place was perfect for us. Elizabeth was a great owner and very helpful. We would come back in a minute. If fact... more I'm going to call her now and set up for next year. Michael less

Perfect Family Condo
Booked several units at this location and it was perfect for a family reunion. Sunsets, location and ability to cook made for a successful event.
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 12/05/2013
We loved the location of our condo unit which was away from the busier area of alii Drive and one minute from the Best snorkeling beach on this part of the island. Also one minute to the nearest shopping area for supplies. The unit itself... more was very comfortable and homey feeling with a wonderful breeze that blew through the whole unit. Everything we could have needed was there including beach chairs and boogie boards and the beds were very comfortable. The most magical part of the day was dinner on the lanai watching the sun set - or drop actually- into the ocean. We even saw dolphins playing in the water the first morning of our arrival. We would definitely recommend this unit. Elizabeth, the owner, was a pleasure to deal with as was allen the unit manager. Look no further if you want to experience the peace and tranquility of paradise in a lovely comfortable surrounding. less

My husband and I and our 12 year son stayed here in June 2013. We loved the condo! It was large, well kept and had the best view. We had a few meals on the lanai, and think it was better than any fancy restaurant.... more We loved that there were beach chairs and boogie boards for our use, and used them a lot. The bed was so comfortable! And hearing the waves at night was wonderful. There are geckos all over the grounds outside, and our son enjoyed trying to find them all. We used the pool a few times and walked down to the small beach. We explored the tide pools and even saw some turtles very close to shore! Thank you for the use of this wonderful condo, we would stay here again and would recommend it to anyone! less

Can't seem to stay long enough
This was our second time to stay at Kksrc within 2 years and although we loved our ground floor unit last time, we loved our 2nd floor unit even more! This unit is so close to the water it makes you feel like you are... more on a boat when you are sitting in the living room or on the lanai. We spent hours just staring at the ocean and the binoculars were a plus for spotting mantarays and dolphins! There was even a whale sighting on one of the nights we were out! The unit was very clean and had all the right amenities and was very organized. Check-in was simple like last time and we needed no assistance. We love the tennis courts and the morning walks along the golf course. Our favorite snorkeling spot just minutes away. Sadly, we didn't see the boogie boards in the 2nd bedroom closet until we were checking out, but would have used them at Magic Sands had we known. The bed was comfortable, the sheets are soft. The couches are super comfortable and large (unlike some of those smaller wicker types). The master bedroom has this tiny little TV, but we didn't really spend much time watching TV anyway. The living room tv is large and modern, and we watched a few Redbox dvds which we rented at CVS up the street. It would have been nice to have a few Hawaiian toiletries in the bathrooms, kind of like a hotel. One or two packets of soap for the laundry would have also been a bonus. Overall, extremely satisfied and will definitely recommend this in the future. less

Condo 5-203 is well maintained and beautiful. Additionally, many items we thought we might have to buy, such as beach towels, insulated pack for cold beverages and beach chairs, were all provided. There were extra bath towels too. We would return if visiting Hawaii again.... more We were there on a girls trip - mom, daughter, sister (aunt). The condo fit all of our needs. The only thing lacking was a couple of tennis racquets. The manager offered to find us some- if only we had time to play, with everything else there was to do and see. less
— Drold, Stayed 06/12/2013
Ken, Mariam Thank you for the great work. Always great to see a 5 star rating. Perhaps in January I will purchase a couple of inexpensive tennis rackets. Sincerely, Elizabeth M. Foley
So relaxing and a super view
The condo was in a great location and the view of the ocean and the sounds of the waves were super wonderful. I went to really relax from stress and it was the perfect place to do that. The condo was very clean, floor plan... more was superior and had everything you could need for a wonderful vacation less
— Angie, Stayed 05/18/2013
The condo was lovely with several small touches that were a real pleasure such as a welcome basket of local produce. The location was directly on the water with surf breaking in spectacular bursts. The unit was clean, nicely furnished and in good condition. The... more only problem was the dishwasher was broken. Was not a big deal. less
— A FlipKey verified reviewer, Stayed 03/27/2013
Spacious and comfortable
This is our favorite place to stay yet! We had plenty of room for the four of us--with two bathrooms and the spacious layout it was a perfect home away from home. The condo is very clean and nicely appointed; the washer and dryer are... more a really nice convenience, too. The view is beautiful and the ocean is literally outside the window--the surf can be pretty loud crashing against the lava shore below, so light sleepers may want earplugs! The resort has lush tropical landscaping and is clean, quiet and feels safe. Great place to stay if you want to relax! less

Home in Paradise
We really appreciated the fresh fruit and coffere basket the owners left for us in the condo. The only regret is that we didn't get to meet them at the farmers market as we arrived Sat. afternoon. The unit was beautiful as well as the... more view. It would have been nice to have a pizza pan in the oven. Not sure if the oven temp Is functioning correctly, but we figured it out. Ran out of garbage bags and did not know who to call. We did call Tony, but he did not call back. Other than that, the condo felt like home and we we're very comfortable there all week. Thank you. less

Beautiful Condo on the Ocean
Great spacious condo with perfect views of the ocean. Very clean, beautiful decor and can see the ocean from the kitchen, dining, living and bedrooms. Even saw dolphins out front of our unit. Loved the welcoming basket of fruits, coffee and jams. The owner is... more always available to assist 24/7. The lanai was so large and spanned from the living room to our bedroom. Our son loved that his bedroom overlooked the golf course. Couldn't have asked for a better place to stay. Highly recommend this place to anyone who wishes to be on the ocean. less

Wonderful place... will definitely come back here!
We had a really awesome time in Kona and our stay at the Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club condo was very nice. We couldn't have asked for more. Spacious...spectacular views up the coast to Kona. Close, but not too close or too far. Very... more quiet. Nice and clean. It was sooo nice to have a laundry in our condo. We will definitely try to make it back here again! Thank you! less

Our own piece of paradise
We loved our two weeks here. Would recommend it to everyone. A great view, a comfortable lodgings, a quiet location, and a very helpful owner - what more do you need? The complex was quiet, clean, and beautiful. Oh, how I would love to live... more here! less

Relaxing stay at the KKS&R; condo #5-203
Condo is in a great location. Very spacious, with a large lanai over looking the ocean. The kitchen comes well equiped, and on property there are also several gas BBQ grills to use as well. The condo owners also had boogie boards, beach towels, chairs,... more and even a beach umbrella. Condo owners communicated timely, and effectively. Would definitely recommend to friends and other family members. less

Wonderful Condo on the Kona Coast
Wow! What a wonderful place. The lanai alone is worth the price of the rental! A very nicely appointed two bedroom which just feels like home the moment you walk in. The condo was immaculate with a well-equipped in a very nice resort very convenient... more to everything in the Kona area. Fall asleep with the sound of the waves, just incredible. Also worth noting is that the owner was a joy to work with and really committed to our feeling comfortable. We are already saving for our next visit. Maholo! less

Beautiful condo in paradise
Aloha, we really enjoyed our week in this condo. The owner provided excellent service. It was easy to make a reservation, and clear instructions and directions were emailed to us. And, there was a lovely gift basket on the counter for us when we arrived.... more We thought that the condo was much nicer than it showed in the photos. This is a beautiful, spacious condo in a great location right on the ocean. The Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club is a quiet and well-maintained complex. This was not our first trip to Kona but it was the first time that we stayed at the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club, and we plan to stay here again on our next trip to Kona. less

We had a great stay in this wonderful condo. It is very well equiped and it was very clean.The view from the lanai and even from the bedroom is breathtaking. We saw a whale jumping out of the water right in front of the lanai.And... more one morning even a large group of dolphins passed by.The grounds are very well maintained. We sure would like to come back. less

Ocean Front Really Means Ocean Front
We rented this condo after visiting a friend who rented in the same building. Previously we had stayed at the Kanaloa in ocean front units. We were not disappointed. Much of the unit has been renovated and the furniture and decorating was very tasteful. We... more loved the fact that the owner had provided all the necessary beach accessories. The kitchen was much better equipped than other resort condos we've rented. While we were there the surf was so high they boarded up the lanaiis on the first floor for 2 days. You definitely want to be on the second or third floor for the view and to avoid being in a "box." less

Elegantly appointed, clean, A-1 location
First class service, professional, courteous and friendly. The condo was well equiped, clean, comfortable. The location was awesome, close to shopping, snorkelling and tennis. The susnsets and the views are un-paralleled.

This is the perfect condo! Having been members of RCI for years, this is by far the best condo we have rented. The pictures don't even do it justice! The rooms are large, bright, and comfortable. The lanai is. wonderful (and larger than it looks... more in the photos) and the kitchen includes every kind of utensil, small appliance, and serving and dishware you could want. There were 4 of us and the condo is set up perfectly for that number. The second bedroom looks over a beautiful golf course (not a parking lot like other buildings in the resort) and the master and living room/dining room and kitchen overlook the ocean. The master bedroom and living room are separated by sliding screens so that during the day, there is an ocean view the full width of the condo. Perfect all around. And Elizabeth is wonderful to work with. We will be back! less

We just had the Perfect Vacation!
Unit 5-203 was fantastic. The view from the lanai is fabulous; the ocean seeming to be a few feet away. It really is only 100 feet or so away. The soft sounds of the waves are very restful. All the appointments are quite good. This... more was our 4th vacation to Hawaii, however, the first time on the "Big Island.” We have really fallen for the Kona area and further, couldn't ask for a better resort than The Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club. Our Condo was complete with everything necessary to make a vacation stay great. And the owner, Elizabeth , was so very accommodating and informative before our arrival. Every detail from the Kona airport to entry of the unit's front door of the unit was perfectly described. less
