Rest assured you're staying in licensed Hawaii Short Term Vacation Rental (STVR) when you book this lovely unit. Our STVR # is STVR 19-358769

Our pledge to you as our treasured guest/s... newer 'stay safe' protocol. We know that you are as excited as we are to travel to Hawaii! We are currently accepting bookings for anyone NOT required to quarantine and any guests traveling AFTER quarantine is lifted with pre-flight, negative COVID testing on or after October 15, 2020.

We understand that our guests’ may have additional concerns for cleaning and dis-infection and we have enhanced our cleaning procedures even further to provide you with our usual sparkling clean arrival with deliberate sanitizing attention to high-touch surfaces.

In addition to our already rigorous cleaning standards, we are using cleaning products and guidelines approved by CDC, to clean, disinfect and sanitize. We continue to offer contactless check-in and add our safety seal to ensure that you are the first to enter after the unit has been cleaned.

There are many advantages to renting a private condo versus a hotel/resort stay. You can choose to enjoy Hawaii in a way that makes you feel comfortable and safe. Unlike a hotel stay, you can rest assured in knowing that you can arrive/depart your condo directly with no risk of contact with other guests or staff. You can feel safe and comfortable around your “home-away-from-home” without the need to wear a mask as you move about the privacy of your condo with your friends or family. You will also have a full kitchen to feel free to prepare meals and drinks without risk or contact with others so that you get to choose to stay in or go out!

We want you to feel safe and comfortable in your home away from home.

Welcome to our vacation home at the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club (KKSRC) on the Kona/sunny-side of the Big Island of Hawaii.

We first visited Kona in 1999 and found the Surf & Racquet Club in 2003. We were hooked!

The oceanfront location is perfect! It's next to the ocean and a beach and less than ½ mile from Kahalu’u Beach Park and the Keauhou Shopping Center with it’s many stores and restaurants. (Kahalu'u Beach Park is also known as Turtle or Snorkel Beach.)

Kahalu’u Beach Park is our favorite snorkeling park in all of Hawaii. The fish and turtles are plentiful and there are bathrooms, parking, reasonably easy access in and out of this protected bay and visitors can rent beach or snorkel gear here, as well, if needed.

Our lovely townhouse has two bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a fully equipped kitchen. Guests can choose to eat indoors at the dining table or there's another table and chairs on our oceanfront lanai.

There are two TVs and wifi for indoor entertainment.

And, we have installed air-conditioning in both bedrooms to provide extra assurance of cool and comfortable rest in the event guests prefer more than fans and ocean breezes.

We also provide beach towels, cooler and there's usually a beach chair or two, an umbrella, and a boogie board for guests to use.

The views when you enter this unit are breathtaking AND you get to enjoy those same views throughout the unit. The view from king/oceanfront bedroom upstairs is particularly stunning; you can watch and listen to the surf from the king bed and spot the yellow tang and turtles frolicking in the blue, aquamarine surf.

During the late spring and summer months you can even watch the sunsets from the bedroom – they’re straight out for your viewing pleasure.

Our décor is very simple and allows guests to easily move in and call the place their own. Most of the artwork is from local artists and reflects the tropical beauty that is found throughout Hawaii. Travertine floors throughout keep feet clean and cool.

And, it’s easy to enjoy your own private backyard in this lovely end-unit with grass surrounding three sides. Also, there’s lush greenery between the yard and the ocean so that children are protected by this natural barrier. Still, if you want to go down to the beach it’s a simple two-minute walk to access the path around the neighboring building.

There are three sacred heiaus on our 15 + acre tropically landscaped property; several on and around beach and during low tide you can even find petroglyphs on the exposed rocks between tide pools. The property inland from beach and next to us is actually being transitioned into a cultural center park because of the richness of history in this area.

In the winter we enjoy additional sightings of the humpback whales and even witnessed an ever-so-rare-to-see birthing in March 2015. Spinner dolphins can be seen along the coastline nearly every day and kayakers, tour boats, and outrigger canoes paddle by pretty routinely.

And, whenever you feel more adventuresome it’s easy to get into the car and drive to hundreds of other lovely places on this big beautiful island. There are world-class beaches, boogie boarding and snorkeling, an active volcano, tropical rainforests, Kona coffee plantations, historic and sacred places, and more. We’re still exploring this lovely place almost 20 years after our first visit.

The complex has a delightful swimming pool which is suitable for young and old alike. There are 1-3 feet depths at the shallow end of the pool and then lengthwise it goes from 4 to 8 feet so you can easily get in some laps or just playfully float around.

If you like to play tennis then this is the place for you. Our recently resurfaced and lighted tennis courts are free for our guests and we even supply a few racquets. There’s a pro available if you want to schedule a lesson or two as well.

All in all – if you’re looking for a wonderful place in paradise – this is it!
