This place is stocked with everything you need to vacation with all the conveniences of home. The view is amazing, it is decorated nicely and the space is more than ample. The beds are very comfy. We liked the location of the whole resort itself. We really appreciated the boogie boards, beach chairs, coolers & umbrellas. We were so sad to leave. The carpet and vents could use a bit of cleaning, but this would not stop us from booking the same unit again. Hopefully we will be back again someday.

The only reason I'm giving this place 3 stars instead of 4 is because there was no HVAC or window cooling unit. The only way to cool down was a ceiling fan and a few electric fans that were stationed in the bedrooms. We left our sliding door open all night to try to cool down but I did not sleep well due to being hot. The unit had ample room and was well furnished.

Our stay in 5-201 was superb. The condo is very well furnished and its location provides a beautiful view. It was very relaxing. Definitely a place to which we will consider returning. Only issue we had was the second night -- the exterior walkway lights did not come on and returning to the condo from the parking lot was a very dark walk -- especially since one of our party was a 95 year old with mobility problems. Per the maintenance man I spoke with the next morning, this lighting issue occurs every couple of weeks and they do not know why.

We had a few meals on the lanai, and think it was better than any fancy restaurant. 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.

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. 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.

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 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!

The things I LOVED about this condo were the lanai (couldn't be better), the comfort of the bed in master bedroom, the layout, condo was well stocked (including groceries, DVDs, beach chairs and towels), the TV channel selection was good including Netflix, and the location of the resort. The master bath was in need of some updating although it was very functional. Personally, I think that the number and size of the artificial plants in the unit made it seem crowded and dated. All in all the rental was a very good value and my family enjoyed our stay.

. I am sorry to say that while the view from the condo is magnificent, we felt our stay was marred by the poor swimming facilities. One pool for all these condos is inadequate and the pool itself is badly in need of refurbishment. The master bathroom in the condo was also a let down with an old shower and broken plug in the sink. The screen door leading off the master bedroom is broken and propped against the wall. It is off its runners. In light of all of these things, we have decided to cut our stay short and find other accommodation which is more to our taste.

This condo was spacious, clean, well-equipped, looked right out over the ocean, and was the right price for our family. The Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club is right in the middle of the Kona coast, making it central to beautiful beaches and great snorkeling. Some of the best snorkeling, though, was right off of the rocks of the Keauhou Surf and Racquet Club!

We loved the location, just a short jump to 19 and North/South destinations while on alii drive so we could hit town easily. We especially enjoyed the sound of the ocean (mere feet away) and sunsets on the lanai were unbeatable (no need to go anywhere, just pop you favorite beverage and pull up your chair). Directions were easy and complete and everything you need is there. Will definitely stay here again when (not if) we return to the big island.

Walked in the front door and saw the ocean right off the back porch.

Check-out tasks not too onerous & got my deposit back.

Townhome 177 was simply one of the best self-catering accommodations that we have experienced through many years of world travel. The oceanside setting is unparalleled, and the views are to die for. We especially appreciated the tasteful decor, the pounding surf at the very foot of our lanai, and the unforgettable sight of humpback whales breaching as we feasted every morning on pineapple, local pastries and Kona coffee.

We set for hours just enjoying the waves crashing on the rocks. This condo has everything you need for a perfect vacation. The only thing needed from home is a swim suit and a couple changes of clothes. Snorkel gear, water shoes, first aid kit were just a few of the things that helped this place feel like home. We had such a wonderful time I can't wait to go back!

From the moment we entered the beautifully manicured gardens of the complex, to the relaxing moments by the pool and the soothing sounds of the blue Pacific ocean waves splashing on the shore, to the comforts and roominess of our condo we were continually impressed by the amenities of this facility. The location of this complex was perfect for us...only 15 minutes to downtown Kailua/Kona, 30 minutes to the airport and short walks to the adjacent ocean side trail and amazing snorkeling beach just an easy 10 minute stroll away....

We stayed in 1-203 for a week in beautiful Kailua-Kona. The location is ideal - directly on the ocean with an awesome view for whale watching and nightly sunsets as well as within walking distance to a grocery store and few restaurants at the Keauhou Shopping Center. It's also in reasonable driving distance to the bulk of Kona's shopping/dining district (about 10 minute drive north). I also recommend Kona Joe Coffee for an epic view and the best coffee on the island, about 15 minutes south. I don't mind the drive to anywhere on the Big Island though, it's beautiful every single direction. A...

The condo was pleasant, clean and provided a pleasant place to escape the winter. It is close to a small snorkeling bay (we walked) and to the small shopping mall with restaurants and grocery store. There is no air conditioning and there was no need for one however we wondered if in the summers it might be warm at night. The condo furnishing were nice. Overall if we were to return to Kona, we would stay here. The condo complex has tennis courts, pools and barbque areas.

We were traveling with another couple and the condo was perfect with private areas for both couples. The unit was roomy and had all the amenities as advertised. The complex was quiet and peaceful and the ocean waves lulled us to sleep each night. I would recommend it for adults or families with older kids. The rocky beach was a bit of a hike and the pool was small and on the interior of the complex with no view, but our ocean view from the unit was fantastic!

We really enjoyed our experience on the island of Hawaii. The condo was everything we had hoped it would be and more. It was 2 bedrooms with an ocean view. It was right next to a golf course that we played and enjoyed. All communication with the owner went well and he was very upfront about exterior maintenance that was going to be happening during our stay. He even gave us a discount due to the minor disruption. Facilities were clean and very well kept. My wife and I will remember this as a great experience and if on the island of Hawaii again would stay there in a heartbeat.

This was the most comfortable, well-equipped, perfectly located, spacious vacation condo we've ever had the pleasure of renting. The owner was awesome, accomodating us at the last minute without a hitch. Loved the place the moment we walked in and saw the full ocean view straight out the lanai. The kitchen was fantastic and had everything we needed and then some; the bed was great and the linens were super soft. There was a small library of excellent travel guides and a fairly large selection of cd's and dvd's. (The music was great - we didn't watch any of the movies) There is also plen...

We stayed here in the winter. The day we arrived, the Islands had a huge storm. The unit downstairs was completed flooded. There were alot of workers, etc. there and the owners were very upset (understandably). We heard ALOT of their trauma from our unit. It made me feel fortunate that we had rented an upstairs unit, as I'm not sure what would have happened if we were anywhere downstairs. As for the unit itself, it was very clean, well equipped, and we loved the view. The ocean was so close and so loud that we actually closed the doors at times!

This is a perfect place to stay. It is away from the busy main street of Kona, but close enough to enjoy the restaurants there.There is a grocery store and restaurants a minute away.

My stay was very nice. The unit is very well decorated and very cheerful. Nice view of the golf course. However, being that it is a ground floor unit it was very loud. You could every footstep from the unit above, so if you are a light sleeper this may be a problem. Also there was a sign on the washing machine that simply said, "dear guests, washing machine does it work. Mahalo". To me that was sort of a big deal as people often like to or need to wash their clothes while on vacation (in my case for work, so it was necessary that I had clean clothes). It was sort of expected, by me anyway, ...

I only Used the pool three times as my key would not work so had to rely on others being there to open the gate, is it necessary to have a key?

This is a nice unit with a view of the golf course. Being on the first floor made it easy. A few things I don't really like about the complex in general, the stairs are situated such that anybody going up to units above has an eyeshot directly into the kitchen window before they get on the stairs, but this is not specific to this unit. Feels like an invasion of privacy, but keep the draperies closed and it is not so bad. Everything worked okay, but the dishwasher is very old and the dishes have to be fairly clean before you put them in. Only big minus, I had to cut my stay short by 10 ...
