Some outlets didn't work, main tub water came out halfway in the shower head and half in the tub spicket, outside sun diffuser screen malfunction, and a few cockroaches.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We are 2 adult women, world travelers and bffs for 50 years. We rent condos and houses worldwide when we travel. Our experience at Unit 3202 could not have been better. There was plenty of room, the lanai an absolute treat for relaxing, and stargazing at night and we loved the location (close to town but not in it) - we loved it all. The grounds were amazing, we even discovered ancient tiki's keeping watchful eyes over the queen's bath as we strolled the black sand beach! Personal recommendation - if you're considering Nighttime Manta Ray it! Amazing! We had one minor snafu, but a text was immediately responded to, and everything taken care of. We really appreciated that too. We would not hesitate to share this place with friends, and we're already talking about our next trip.

Beautiful location right on the ocean front. No air conditioning as stated in the listing - I personally will choose a unit with AC in the future (my personal preference)

We loved having the beautiful view from the Lanai and the sound of ocean waves to sleep at night. The lanai was oversized and plenty of room for all 5 of us to enjoy. This unit had many amenities for use such as beach towels, grass mats and beach chairs, cooler, boogie boards, masks/snorkel/fins and a kayak! We stayed in August and it was high 80s each day. The unit has no A/C and was uncomfortable to be in, even with all of the fans running, until late into the night when it cooled outside. We left all windows open at all times to maximize the breeze and we didn’t see a single bug in the room ever. The furniture is nice and also new, but the unit itself is very worn (carpets, fixtures, mirrors, bath, etc) and in need of update. With the windows always open we heard everything that the neighbors said and also thin floors and the little feet running back and forth all night in the unit above us. We were out exploring during the day and did not let the negatives affect us but they are important to consider if it’s something that would influence your stay.

The grounds are well kept and private, with easy access to a nearby beach with good tidepools. Short drive or moderate walk to Kahaluu Beach Park for snorkeling. Mall just up the hill has all the necessities. We enjoyed the pool, tennis and ping pong and had pleasant interactions with residents and other guests. One small maintenance issue was fixed promptly by Knutson. We would happily stay here again.

Property is very clean, nice towels and items for the beach. Bathrooms are outdated and need help, but functional, although showers waste water with leaking heads. For older folks: Know that it is on the second floor with no elevator, as are most properties. You will have to drag luggage up and down 3 sets of stairs. No A/C, only 3 nights that were very warm during our 10 day stay. Floor fans and ceiling fans helped otherwise! Indoor living room furniture looks nice and comfy, but we sat on the lanai the entire time for the breezes and the beautiful sunsets. We found this property to be centrally located and the views were outstanding.

Spacious condo within resort, with very nice view of the ocean. Very large balcony, with plenty of seating. Beds were comfortable, as well as furniture in the main room. The kitchen was a little small for the 4 of us, with not many drinking cups, but plenty of bowls and plates. Also, the fridge was good, with filtered drinking water inside, but only 1 ice tray in the freezer. Property manager was very easy to work with and responsive to our questions. And even though there was no AC, there are plenty of fans and the breeze from the ocean helped. Had a nice time staying here.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We stayed in Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club (#3202) for the Kona Ironman World Championship for about 2 weeks, The unit was just what we needed and made for the perfect stay. This second-floor unit overlooks the ocean. The view was spectacular with beautiful sunsets and a walking path along the ocean. The grounds were immaculate and well maintained. The unit did not have AC, but, honestly, we thoroughly enjoyed the ocean breezes and falling asleep to the sounds of the waves. The location is very convenient being close to a shopping center, restaurants, and everything you could need within a few minutes. The condo was well stocked with items we needed to prepare our own meals (which we did several times). I loved having breakfast out on the lanai. Hoping to return again.

We had every meal on the deck and enjoyed amazing sunsets from there. The unit was roomy and clean. The kitchen was adequately furnished. Lots of fans to keep air moving! With the unit being so nice, we felt the carpeted stairs and beneath, leading up to the unit were in need of attention. Great place!

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: We love the KKSR & have stayed there multiple times but were less than impressed with this condo due to the carpet being very dirty, which should have been easily fixed before our arrival. There wasn't enough laundry soap for our use but we decided to be good guests though & washed the bedding & towels, then took home our dirty laundry. We were also surprised about 2 months before our trip with a steep raise in the rates when there wasn't really anywhere else left to stay at a reasonable rate. Luckily, we were able to negotiate a more reasonable rate since we'd booked more than 6 months earlier.One great thing about this condo though was how comfortable the temperature was. By just running the ceiling fans and the cross-ventilation, the temperature stayed really comfortable. The ocean view can't be beat & the stars at night were amazing! We watched dolphins frolic & loved the location to area attractions.

Reviewer Comments: This condo's location was excellent...falling asleep to the sounds of the waves was heavenly, and the grounds, pool area and courts well kept. We had an issue with the kitchen blinds and the repair man was prompt and very courteous. Sadly, the condo itself is looking VERY tired, with the walls needing a full clean/paint job, the carpet being filthy and the dishwasher filter that my husband cleaned was absolutely disgusting, and obviously not cleaned in a LONG time. Being a wood structure, you could hear the folks upstairs, but not to the point of being annoying at all. Overall we loved our time here.

Great weather and the view of the ocean can’t be beat. The condo is nice but starting to look a little worn around the edges. The condo is well supplied with the basics for an island get away. There weren’t any beach towels so we had to buy some. The kitchen had the necessary equipment. The Surf and Racket Club is beautiful and maintained well. We like it so much we are coming back next year.

It didn't really impact our stay, but the condo could use some updates - the furniture is a little worn, outlets didn't always work, and the bed linens could stand to be replaced (bath linens were great). Kitchen was well appointed (but the coffee pot also needs to be replaced). Overall we had a great stay.

We have stayed in other units in this complex in the past. This particular unit was good but it is needing a update. Patio doors need fixing, torn rug on deck, rusted washing machine, fans worked but extremely rusted and kitchen sink constantly dripped. Bathrooms need major update as well. Good things were the supply of water toys for the beach and kayaking, proximity to shopping, restaurants and some beaches along with the safe feeling being in a gated community.

Just about all you could want in kitchen!Cons: Very well used (read "worn"). Carpet could especially use replacing both inside and out on balcony. Very thin walls, ceiling, floors. Can hear every footstep of people upstairs, so tried to step lightly ourselves to keep the noise down for the people downstairs from us.Overall, it was a really great place to stay. Views are truly amazing and the price was certainly good.

As a solo traveler I felt very safe and secure. I loved sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean, and enjoyed swimming in the pool everyday and walking around the beautiful grounds. The property is just a 5-minute drive from a shopping center that has a Longs Drugs, a number of restaurants, a great grocery store (KTA) and a farmer's market on Saturdays not to be missed. I hope to return soon!

The views from this property are unreal. When we first walked in the front door, actually every time, we had to stop and marvel for a moment that what we were looking at was real! It's such a close view of the water and a stunning blue. One day I could see schools of yellow tang in the water from the balcony. We ate every meal on the large lanai. The place really has a vacation feeling and to be that close to the water really ups the vacation feel. The place itself is really cool. It's got a great vibe and the floor plan was fun for our family of 4. It could have used more dishsoap, paper towels, and some sort of cleaning spray especially with covid. One con is that there is no air conditioning. There were ceiling fans and plenty of standing fans but we got hot. All in all this place was charming. The lanai is awesome and the location is very good but it may be better in the cooler months. The price is right!

This was a nice property and great location. If you’re chasing gorgeous sunsets, this is the property for you. The one downside to the condo was its outdated bedsheets, it was old-to a point where you can sheet the little beads from the cotton sheets. Blake, the property manager was awesome to deal with; he was very responsive and addressed all our needs.

The view at this condo is absolutely stunning where we enjoyed mornings and evenings listening to the waves and watching the dolphins play along with an occasional whale. The property management was awesome and were quick to respond when messaged. Kudos to Knutson & Associates for their kindness and concern. We were extremely disappointed in the condo as it is in desperate need of updating. The kitchen counters and cabinets are updated but the cookware and appliances are terrible. There is only one tiny little egg pan that things don't stick to so if you want to make a nice breakfast forget it! I also had to wash all of the pans before use as they had crusted food on them when I pulled them out. The kitchen was only stocked with salt, pepper, garlic salt and some vegetable oil as far as supplies go. The stove is an old electric and doesn't heat evenly. The furniture was very uncomfortable and nights were long on the hard mattresses. The couch is sunken in the middle and one of the chairs has rips. We don't typically spend a lot of time in but decent rest and recovery is important to be able to enjoy the time out. We did not get that here! Fortunately, we traveled with friends who had a lovely condo in the same complex and we were able to hang out with them (We paid the same amount!). My daughter got stuck in the shower as the door came off of its tracks and she could not get out. Luckily, there was someone there to help her. The towel rod kept falling off and could not hold a wet towel. The master shower is in dire need of an upgrade too along with the water damaged wall next to it. The ceiling fans do not move much air but thankfully there was a floor fan in each room. The spare bedroom had brown footprint stains as if someone walked around after a spray tan. There was only 2 extra rolls of toilet paper for a party of 6 for a week and no extra paper towel rolls. There was only one dishwasher pod left for us and we were requested to run it prior to leaving. We had to borrow from our friends. Also, the dish soap had obviously been watered down. Think twice before renting this place as there are many others that are a huge step up within same complex for the SAME PRICE!

We spent a week around New Years here. Such a great location. Walking distance to a lovely pebble beach just North of the complex, and some of the best snorkeling we did at Kahalu’u beach also walking distance from our room. There are groceries and a drug store just south of here. We fell asleep to the sound of the waves breaking on the rocks outside our room, and had coffee on the porch watching people paddle by in the distance in long canoes. The numbers of the room tell you where the unit is in the complex. 3-202 means building 3 and 202 means the second floor. 302 would be the unit above us, and 102 was below us. I felt the second floor was perfect, but I am sure the other floors were very nice too. Each unit has a labeled parking spot.

We thoroughly enjoyed being right on the ocean and loved the lanai for morning coffee and evening drinks. The condo, however, is in dire need of repair. Everything is water damaged and rusted out. The kitchen could also use a few more items to make it easier to cook meals for a family of five.
