My husband and I stayed here for the majority of our honeymoon and we wouldn't have done it any other way! The first thing I noticed and loved about #5 specifically is the location- it's arguably the best out of most of the town-homes! It has its own corner lot, so the extra privacy was awesome, and most importantly, sits directly adjacent to the water! The master bedroom has an entire wall dedicated to windows overlooking the ocean- which is directly outside. Goes without saying, my favorite thing was falling asleep to the sound of the waves.
The first few days of our trip were spent in a hotel/AirBnB. Although those were fun in their own way, we were so happy to check into a more home-y place. For a week's stay in #5, having the kitchen, laundry area, more space to relax, the lanai to enjoy meals with an ocean view and direct access to the beach was more than I could ask for on our vacation. It has the best of both worlds in terms of being on vacation, but having a place you can comfortably retreat to and have your own space in. We loved it so much that we are definitely coming back to #5!
Not to mention, the location of the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club as a whole is perfectly located. There's a full shopping center with convenience and grocery stores, gas stations and restaurants only 2 minutes away. There's also a great snorkeling spot a half-mile away and the downtown part of Kona is a 10-15 minute drive. Needless to say, the location is perfect for things to do! My husband and I spent many of our days driving to further areas to explore and Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club as a starting point was very central!
We loved this place. It's absolutely perfect if you're looking to be in your own space on your vacation!
My Wife and I stayed one magical week here on our honeymoon, and needless to say it was a truly, truly amazing.
Where to begin! I'll get to the townhouse itself in a second, but I have to immediately point out the location. One of my most favorite parts of our honeymoon was that I could open the back door, WALK 20 FEET, and have my toes dug into the sandy beach. Whether you want to stroll the beach during the gorgeous sunset, go sit by (but not too close!) the sea turtles that crawl right up on the beach, or enjoy a brunch on the beautiful Lanai while watching the waves, you truly feel like you are in a special place.
The location of this place alone makes me want to go back tomorrow, but the townhouse itself adds a lovely charm! The lava rock lined showers give a fun local touch, and the walls are graced with beautiful local wooden art depicting the surrounding sea life. The King size master bed is incredibly comfortable, and we loved falling asleep to the sound of the waves every night! The kitchen has everything you need if you like to cook, and don't forgot to use the coffee maker for some of that local Kona Coffee!
The townhouse is in a perfect location in Kona, with a large shopping center 1 minute up the hill for all your needs (and Farmer's Market!), and you can easily head south towards Captain Cook's cove, or north into town for any experience, including a cute white sand beach, and great snorkeling locations. We were able to create so many amazing memories here in Kona, and this townhouse is a HUGE part of that. We could not be more blown away, and thankful for our stay, and would recommend this place to any couple, or family looking for a beautiful tropical vacation!!!
This location is amazing - the beach is right outside your back door! Family friendly condo with great pool. Privately located end unit. Very clean and comfortable. Newly remodeled bathrooms. Kitchen has all the amenities of home. Comfortable beds. Great ocean breeze and views from every room. Clean and beautifully maintained inside and out. Location has little rain but green and lush throughout the property. Nearby restaurants and shopping.
If you like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean, an oceanfront lanai, and gorgeous sunsets, this is the place for you. The townhouse has everything you need for a great vacation and is just a short walk to one of the best snorkeling spots on the island.
This was a great condo. Has no airconditioning like many places in Hawaii but after you open all the windows it cools down quickly with the cross breezes. Kitchen quite well stocked and the little extras like games and books are a super homely touch. Really easy parking and supermarket a 2 minute drive away make this place really convenient to stay.
I really loved sleeping with the sound of the ocean - its amazing how quickly you get used to this - I missed it after I left. I have only one minor criticism and that is that when we arrived a sign was posted on the door advising that pest control would be occurring between 9am and 3pm on one of the days of our stay. This would have been good to know about in advance as we had no information on whether we could be present or not for the pest control - so we just decided to vacate for this entire period. This is only a minor thing and Sally did advise that we could contact the complex manager for more information but I found that it added an unwelcome complexity to our stay.
