Aloha, we would love to have you as our guests. The oceanfront townhomes are the closest units to the ocean in all of Kona! Enjoy fresh ocean breezes and be lulled to sleep by the sound of the waves. Sip coffee on your lanai in the morning while watching the dolphins and whales frolic. Unwind in the evening while enjoying amazing sunsets. Imagine watching the waves as you relax in the large walk in ocean front shower. This is a corner unit townhome so it is very bright with the ocean out back and a grassy lawn and tree to the side. No one above or below you! Please note that both bedrooms are on upper level with one full bath upstairs and the other on first floor.
The Surf and Racquet Club is gated community spread out over 16 beautifully landscaped acres. Our unit is far from Alii Drive so no road noise! This is also one of the few units that is not directly on parking lot so no cars parking or driving by front. We are approximately 20 feet from your reserved parking spot. You are steps away from the large pool and tennis/pickleball courts. Black Sand Beach is adjacent to the complex and lovely for a sunset stroll. The Kona Country Club golf course is on the other side of the property.
The complex is less than a half a mile from a shopping center that has grocery, movie theater, dining and shopping options.
We have stocked the townhome with everything you need for your stay including beach chairs, umbrella, cooler and boogie boards!
High speed wifi and a smart TV to allow you to stay connected and stream your favorite shows. We have split AC units in each bedroom and the main living area. We have replaced the jalousie windows with solid pane which really allows the ocean views to pop!
This town home is truly the place for relaxation and romance! It is a far cry from most of the condos on busy Alii drive.
Please be aware that in the rare event of high surf, storm barriers may be raised at lanai and kitchen window. This would impact the view.

Very nice condo on the waterfront. We enjoyed some beautiful sunsets here, as well as many whale sightings. The condo itself was very clean, nicely furnished, and with a well equipped kitchen. All appliances seemed fairly new and functioned well. Good selection of pots, pans, dishes, cutlery, etc.. Comfortable beds. The ocean facing second floor bathroom was also notable for the best view we’ve ever had from a shower!

The best part of our stay was spending time out on the lanai. We saw whales and spinner dolphins. The sunsets were beautiful. The place was clean and comfortable.

Gorgeous waterfront property with a private feel. We watched the whales for hours on the lanai, we couldn’t have asked for more and we are already planning our return trip!

The property is as described. It's a 15-min drive to Kona for shopping and a good place to swim. The sunsets from the townhouse were beautiful. The stairs in the townhome are steep and need to be navigated carefully.

Breakfast and suppers on the lanai were wonderful. I loved sleeping with the windows open and hearing the waves. You even get ocean waves while taking a shower too. The townhouse was in a quiet community, but close to restaurants and shops. Very clean and well stocked spices pans and dishes. We would recommend this townhouse to anyone wanting a quiet stay.

This condo couldnt have been more perfect. The view, the quiet neighborhood, the ocean sites & sounds. It was all amazing and just what we needed for our time away. The condo is a perfect distance from the crowds of town, but close enough for a short drive to dine out. Thank you for sharing your home. We're planning another trip as soon as our schedules allow. Aloha

Loved this condo/ oceanfront with a fabulous view. Air conditioning was great and definitely needed! The condo was lovely! Such comfortable beds and pillows! The best ever!! The kitchen had everything we needed! Very short walk to the pool. The pool was great! It was large and had a large kiddie area. Would definitely return to this condo!

Can’t say enough good about this up to date nicely furnished super clean cozy oceanfront condo. Stunning ocean panorama view on one side and gorgeous green mountains on the opposite. Enjoyed peaceful morning coffee on the patio with ocean waves and a variety of local birds. Gated resort is beautifully landscaped and meticulously maintained. Very nice pool and tennis/pickleball areas. Complex has a short trail to walk along the volcanic coastline (no beach sand). Short drive from grocery and downtown Kona shops and restaurants and local beaches. This really checked off all our boxes for an ideal Hawaiian paradise visit.

Great location. Very quiet and comfortable. Loved the 2 king sized beds and the AC in each room. Saw dolphins passing by a couple of times and was glad that the binoculars had been packed.

We stayed for 2 nights, and really enjoyed our time. The unit is beautiful, nicely updated with everything you could want. We didn’t use the pool and BBQs, but they are close by if you need. Tennis courts also available. Lovely view of sunset from the patio too. We plan to stay again for longer in the future, highly recommend this property!

Pros: Ocean views even inside your living room's couch Gated and quiet community Higher end Dishwasher Machine, and Washer and Dryer machines (regular sized, not the small kinds you see in small condos) Two separate full sized shower bathrooms Decent size kitchen Assigned car space close to Townhome Tennis/Pickle ball courts in front your unit Cons: Furnishings are dusty (due to the choice in wicker furniture) Found 1 bug in bedroom closet, Another upstairs bathroom sink Bath Towels are a bit worn and frayed Found one bedroom pillowcase damaged (maybe from prior washing?) Grout of the upstairs bathroom floor is dirty Mold found on the edges of the window curtain of the upstairs shower

Fabulous property. Great location, villa had everything we needed, comfortable beds, plenty of room to spread out. Wonderful kitchen, outdoor seating on the lanai overlooking the ocean and sunset views. Owner's were great to work with, good communication. We would definitely stay there again.

We had a wonderful time on the Big Island. The condo interior was wonderful. The view from the lanai was amazing. We enjoyed our breakfasts and sunsets there while listening to the sound of the waves. The beds were very comfortable. The condo was located in a beautiful community right on the ocean and a short drive to the beach. Snorkeling at the beach was great.

Wonderful property with everything you need for a great family vacation. We saw whales and a school of spinner dolphins from the lanai. The only downside was that there was a high wave warning for 3 days of our stay where the lanai had to be shuddered; however, Jim was great and communicated with us the entire time. All in all, the waves put on a spectacular show for us and as they say, you can't control the weather. I would definitely stay here again!

Great condo - clean, safe and well stocked. Plenty of extra touches such as beach towels, chairs, noodles, snorkel gear, cooler, ice pack, umbrella etc. Lots of amenities nearby as well. Hosts are friendly and proactively reached out to ensure everything was fine.

Very high quality. So generous with supplies, we barely needed to restock. Private lanai overlooking the ocean and second story bedrooms to listen to the surf. Great location close to Kona and amenities but SO quiet. Would stay again in a heartbeat!

This unit is excellent in every way. The view and the ocean breeze can’t be beat. Everything was in excellent working order. For the really warm nights it was nice to cool down with A/C. The beds are very comfortable. Very close proximity to the pool! This unit has everything you need to explore the big island, including beach towels, beach chairs, beach umbrella and ice chests. Jim and Cyndie didn’t miss one detail when preparing this townhome for a rental. Thank you and we will be back again.

We stayed at this townhouse for five days and used it as a jumping point to explore everything on the west side of the island. The well stocked kitchen was so nice to have! Property was super clean and in a quiet area. We loved being able to use the beach chairs and cooler for our adventures!

great location. close to town and beaches. beautiful apartment nicely decorated. property management had to put on storm shutters on ground floor for first two days during our stay due to high waves but we can still enjoy the great ocean view from second floor windows. Well equipped with all beach equipments.

It was good. It would have been nice to know they were fumigating some of the units and the pool Pavillion.

We loved watching the waves from the lanai and found the location convenient for all our big island adventures. Be warned that some units in the complex were bashed by waves many times during our stay and their lanais were closed all week. Ours was closed for a few days but otherwise great!

We loved our time on the Big Island and this townhouse was a perfect place to land after a fun day on the ocean or hiking. It was exactly as advertised. Updated and with all the comforts you need. The view from the upstairs bedroom and patio were amazing!!! A quick walk to the quiet beach nearby was relaxing and we saw spinner dolphins and turtles. Jim was excellent with communicating with us when we had questions. Thank you for sharing your property on this amazing island:)

Perfect setting, nice and quiet, good location to everything you would need! Sunsets are amazing! We would stay longer next time 4 days were not enough to see and do what we wanted.

The condo is in a perfect location. We cooked almost every night and the KTA market up the hill was very convenient and Has excellent fish. We had whales off the lanai on two nights and the sundowns were wonderful. The bed was comfortable and everything was clean and well maintained. We were scuba diving every day and our morning coffee and evening meals on the lanai were delightful! Cindy and George, Rochester NY

Everything went smoothly. Loved this unit! The only complaint is that the shared gas grills on the property are not working very well so we ate out a lot. Loved watching whales and sunsets from the lanai. This unit was very well stocked also with coolers, snorkel gear and much more. Mahalo!

We loved that this property was well stocked with everything we could possibly need. Great location to see the island. Beautiful sunsets & watching the moon dip in the ocean. We did see some whales from the patio. Nice pool & community amenities. Beautifully renovated & furnished. Would highly recommend.

Condo/townhouse was amazing. Clean, quiet and close to everything. This was our second time being here and we'll definitely come back again. An amazing experience.

It is a modest condo in some ways (not big/modern/luxury) but clean and the hosts decorated nicely and really maximized the stay as they give you A/C, a big TV, give you lots of things like ping pong paddles and balls, pickle ball gear, boogie boards, etc. The view is fabulous. I used the pool early in the morning before the kids each day. Ping Pong was fun. If you play tennis, it is a big bonus. The price during the holidays was a week for about the same as a day at a fancy resort like the Fairmont Orchid, so it was a great value.

The condo was amazing and we weee able to make a big breakfast everyday with all the cookware provided! The Lani did not disappoint and on our last morning the water was the most teal and blue like glass. We loved how close we were to town and shopping! Thank you so much , Stephanie

The townhouse was beautiful with an amazing view that you couldn’t wait to wake up to every morning. We enjoyed having coffee/breakfast on the back deck while watching and listening to the waves crashing against the lava rocks and to all of the beautiful tropical birds who were dropping in to say “good morning!” The saffron finches and cardinals were my favorite! You could fall asleep listening to the ocean waves on the super comfortable king bed. The townhouse had all the amenities of home…beach gear and towels to borrow, a coffee grinder so that you could enjoy fresh ground Kona coffee everyday, blow dryer, flat iron and even products to use in the shower and a washer/dryer. Conveniently located near a plaza with a supermarket, pharmacy, some restaurants and other shops, the highway and on Ali’i drive only a few minutes from beaches and all of the shops in downtown Kona. We came here to get married in Kona and I couldn’t have asked for a better place to get ready for our wedding. The townhouse is in a gated community where you feel safe and secure with wonderful amenities and a beautiful pool. We would definitely stay here again! Thank you so much for your hospitality!

This was perfect for our stay! Loved sitting out in the early morning hours and watching/listening to the waves against the rock wall. Townhouse was right next to the pool but we stayed busy with activities and beach days. Ac was very nice, when needed. Grilled out once. It was just perfect!

This is a great place to stay on the big island. The space is kept very clean, it is filled with every amenity/furnishing we could ask for. Appliances worked very well, check-in/check-out was simple, and the place looks exactly like the pictures. The beds/pillows/sheets are comfortable, the shower water is hot and well pressured. The A/C works well enough, and the location is great.
