Rest assured you're staying in licensed Hawaii Short Term Vacation Rental (STVR) when you book this lovely unit. Our STVR # is STVR 19-377786

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.

Enjoy oceanfront views from your living room, kitchen, oceanfront bedroom and upstairs bathroom or while reading a book or enjoying a cool drink on your lanai. They don't allow units to be built this close to the ocean anymore - you can actually see turtles nibbling on the rocks or the yellow tangs in the aquamarine surf from your oceanfront bedroom. We supply everything you need indoors, designated parking 35 feet from front door, and this lovely 15+ acre complex boasts a newly refinished pool & deck area that's perfect for all ages AND three lovely and newly resurfaced tennis courts for which our guests can play for free. We're also less than 1/2 mile from world class snorkeling (Kahalu'u Beach Park; aka Snorkel or Turtle Beach) and less than 1/2 mile from the Keauhou Shopping Center where you'll find groceries, restaurants, medical care, theatre, drug stores and more. It's really perfectly wonderful!! Also, a complete kitchen remodel was just done in September 2016 so everything is brand new! (Pictures coming soon.) Still, our rates are set to entice those who might not normally budget for oceanfront. It's lovely and sweet!

Comparable refurbished and remodeled units run $25-$40 more per night during low season and $50-$75 more per night during Winter months. (See 145210 and 253989). This unit is clean, oceanfront and still a work in process for ongoing renovations and priced to be a nice deal!

This property was exactly as described. We stayed for 15 days and found it very comfortable and relaxing with all the kitchen and bbq items necessary to prepare meals. The lanai views the beach and is perfect for watching sunsets.

Wonderful complex; Close to best snorkeling beach in the area; Shopping area just up the road very convenient. Our unit which overlooks the shore of a private refuge is fantastic. We fall asleep each evening to the sounds of the ocean. We have been vacationing in Hawaii for over 30 years and this is by far our favorite spot.

Stayed here for the Ironman Championship Excellent location and amazing views Townhome very well stocked with kitchen and bath essentials The TV in the living room was broken/not working during our entire stay—property manager notified and took broken TV but new one wasn’t installed during our stay Very good communication though between property manager-owner and us

Very nice condo with all the conveniences and right on the beach. Good service also - when the toilet was leaking, it was fixed quickly.

We were very happy with the location of the condo as far as being so close to the ocean. Sandy and Regina were amazing in making sure we were as comfortable as possible. However, we were disappointed in the state of the condo which needs to be updated and is quite dark downstairs since a window is covered by a piece of furniture.

Our family of 3 really enjoyed our 4 nights at the townhouse. The view and location are amazing. It’s an older place but very clean and comfortable for us. It was a little warm but the fans really help. Check in was easy and communication was great. We’ll definitely will rent this townhouse again on our next vacation in Kona. Thank you for sharing your house with us.

This place was perfect for our family getaway this summer. Other reviews mention the place needing an update, I personally don’t mind the 80’s/90’s beach house feel! They are accurate in that the beds need updating, however I’ve slept on worse. Sandy was helpful & patient throughout our entire booking process. The VRBO platform itself needs some serious work, so just be patient with the host! There is no AC, but you do get a great cross breeze with the windows open and fans on. We were there in the middle of June and adjusted just fine. Nothing beats sitting on the lanai with your morning cup of Kona coffee and watching the ocean. My in laws said they saw about 7 dolphins our last morning there. We also saw multiple sea turtles in the bay as well. Beautiful location and would definitely stay here again!

We enjoyed our stay. The property had everything we expected. We loved having breakfast out on the Lanai. The property was well equipped with everything we needed.

This 2 BR, 2 bath townhouse is spacious and bright and happy. The townhouse is mere feet from the water, where it is teeming with marine life. The lanai faces west for the most amazing daily sunsets. It’s close to everything but still tucked away enough to feel the peace and tranquility the ocean.

We have stayed at this property multiple times. It could use updating (particularly the main bathroom) but it is perfect for sunsets on the small bay and sufficient for our group of 3 adults. Located in a beautiful complex and close to restaurants and grocery, this unit is a favorite of ours.

It was so peaceful and healing to sit outside right above the ocean, and also to be able to walk to the water just steps away from our door. The place was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed for our stay including a well supplied kitchen, washer and dryer, quiet and respectful neighbors, and fans in every room. We will definitely come back.

No problem resting and relaxing in this townhouse. From our lanai we saw whales, turtles, mongoose, birds and dolphins. Sitting by the pool and watching sunsets meant that we didn’t have to venture far for entertainment. Of course Kailua does provide wonderful eating places. We will return.

My partner and I were very pleased with our stay here. The description is very accurate and the location cannot be beat. The complex is also fantastic - we really enjoyed spending time in the pool and next stay, we'll definitely bring pickleball equipment. The unit was perfect for us and fit our budget. We enjoyed spending time on the lanai eating breakfast and dinner and watching whales, sunset and even moonset. The location is perfect for getting to various areas of the Big Island and the shopping center up the hill for the supermarket, takeout food and the Saturday farmers market. We're so glad this unit is available for us to share the experience of staying here.

The location was ideal for our needs and the spectacular view was a delight to behold. Sandy and Leslie were quick to respond to our needs and Pat, the housekeeper, stopped by to make sure we were happy with her work. The townhome itself was clean and neat but in need of long overdue reconditioning. There is no A/C but the fans throughout the unit kept the air moving. The cost per night was about half that of other townhomes in the complex and reaffirms the old adage that you get what you pay for.

This property was a little older and really needs some TLC around the edges. Overall this townhouse apt was great, loved the view. Lots of little things need fixing or painting or replacing. The beds and furniture were comfortable, with lots of pillows. There was plenty of closet and bureau space and plenty of hangers! The wifi worked well. Mostly quiet area. The neighbors got noisy a couple of nights, but it quieted down at a reasonable time. We loved the view! Can't say that enough! Mere steps from the water and hearing the surf was the best!! I would stay here again.

Property is in a great location. It was clean but definitely in need of some upgrades. Several issues with the townhouse were quickly addressed by Sandy, the property manager. We found her to be quick to respond and easy to work with, however the owner needs to do so major updating.

Very nice property and well positioned for a beach experience. It is an older, but well kept property with dedicated parking. I am a bit older and would have appreciated a couple of stand-up air conditioners for the property since we come from an very dry climate and it was a bit stifling.

Wonderful spot. Turtles right below our lanai on 2 days. Convenient and great views. No AC so if you wilt in the heat, it may not be the place for you. We love it and appreciate all the fans available. Not fancy, but comfortable.

Wonderful 2 bedroom unit right by the bay. Highly recommend. Great host. Would stay here again. Perfect for the mother daughters trip to Kailua-Kona. Love listening to the waves!

We loved being right on the ocean front. The sunsets were breathtaking. We enjoyed breakfast on the Lanai. It was a little warm for us but the fans helped. The unit was very clean. We were thankful for the 2 beach chairs, umbrella and cooler. We ended up renting boogie boards and used our own snorkle gear. Never thought we could afford beachfront rentals but this was definitely affordable! Highly recommend.

Our stay was perfect from start to finish. The check in process was well communicate and simple. Sandy was readily available by phone or text with any questions. The location was perfect with shopping and restaurants nearby if you don't want to venture down the road to the busier part of Kailua-kona. The condo itself was clean and comfortable. The views are amazing and the sound of the waves was so soothing. We loved taking in the beautiful grounds on our walks. We enjoyed the pool often after a long day of sightseeing. We ended up extending our stay by 3 days and Sandy made the process easy. We would definitely rent this unit again.

Nice oceanfront property. Really enjoyed the stay. And the owner/property manager was very easy to correspond with.

The townhouse faced a small and quiet beach. Often we were one of only two couples using it. We were lucky enough to have seen whales from our lanai!

It shows a little wear and tear, but you can't beat the location or the fabulous view. It was clean (aside from the windows) and comfortable. It doesn't have A/C but the temps were pretty moderate during our visit; the fans and ceiling fans were all functional and helped with the humidity. The local contact was very helpful the one time we needed her. I would definitely go back to this unit and recommend it to anyone traveling to the Big Island.

Our favorite feature of this condo was being able to watch fabulous sunsets right from the lanai as well as watching the tides come and go. We could see fish in the water from second floor of this location. We also enjoyed the beautiful landscaping throughout the whole Surf and Racquet Club Complex which was very well maintained and bonus beautiful Christmas lighting. Staff were helpful and made us feel welcome. Thank you Sandy and Geri.

This is just a great property. The description is right on! So close to the water and the turtles and yellow tangs are there to enjoy. Everything has been provided for you. The main floor is updated with that new kitchen and, although the bedrooms and bathroom upstairs may need some updating, they are pleasant, clean, and comfortable-the most important factors to me! The location can't be beat. It was so convenient for us. Kahuluu, a great snorkeling spot, is very close, and Place of Refuge for snorkeling and scuba diving is a short drive. It is super quiet there-except for the noise of the ocean outside your windows! Sandy was so helpful with my last minute request to stay there, and Jeri (on island manager) responded immediately when I needed some help. The two of them could not have been easier to work with.

amazing setting of the town house. as soon as I arrived in the house, I could see the ocean with the beach in front. We could enjoy the sunset, peaceful setting, and sound of the ocean everyday. I definetely would like to come back .
