Super smashing fab 2 bed/2bath townhouse in ever popular Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club, HI.

The space

Super smashing fab 2 bed/2bath townhouse in ever popular Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club, HI.

Super smashing fab townhouse in ever popular Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club, HI.

We do not have air conditioning but very rarely it gets warm (during hurricane season), that is the nature of Hawaii, if you cannot handle heat this might not be the right place for you.

Following feedback from guests we installed R19 roof insulation to help combat heat gain in the unit, this makes the house far more comfortable.

Seconds to pool and tennis courts and private beach. 150-ish feet from the ocean and the most beautiful sunsets.

Minutes (walking) to local popular surf spots for beginners to experts (season and swell depending).

Master bed has queen size bed, 2nd bedroom has a full (sleeps 2 skinny people) and a pull out Japanese style futon mattress bed (8 inch cotton mattress - not traditional 2 inch Japanese mattress). Living room has queen size sofa bed. Available is a pack'n'play (travel cot) for infant.
Additionally, to be clear, the AC/air conditioning is a window unit in the living room, there is no AC upstairs, there are ceiling fans in all the rooms.

Smoking is forbidden! (Rauchen ist verboten)

The pool, tennis courts, beach.

I am a 20 minute drive away if there is an emergency, but in a real emergency please call 911.

Guest access

Everywhere is for guests, except the upstairs hall closet (that's for the cleaners and is off limits to guests, it is locked), and the attic.

Interaction with guests

I am usually available, I live 20 mins drive away, if you call late (after 9pm) leave a message, I usually pick them up quickly, (we have small kids...)

Other things to note

There is a beach walking distance from the unit, but guests should note that it is not a "classic sandy swimming beach" - this is Hawaii island (geologically speaking it's very young so Sandy Beaches have not formed yet). You can sit in the water at this beach but if you are brave, a strong swimmer and have lots of experience in the ocean, it is possible to swim out to the edge of the reef, EXPERTS ONLY, there are no lifeguards here, swim at your own risk.

Along the road to the North, approx. 10 mins walking or a 2 min drive (you should walk it's good for you), is Kahaluu Bay which has much much more user friendly beach and snorkeling and surfing. There are lifeguards at this beach.

The unit is not ocean front -however the ocean front units tend to be loud (waves are big and loud here), and during big storms the ocean front units get boarded up....

Other thing to note - Hawaii Island is 19 deg. North of the equator, therefore it gets hot, if you do not like to be hot, I recommend visiting another part of the world.

Jon was so accommodating we came in a day earlier than planned and we were fortunate enough to have his property available. The extra bonus was that we didn't have to wait for predetermined check-in Jon texted me to let me know that the place was ready and we could let ourselves in. The property is hop skip and jump to ocean views, beaches, and shopping. We loved the location! Jon's kitchen, equipped, with all the amenities one needs to cook meals, (check cupboards so you don't buy unnecessarily) play at beach, towels, ice chest, snorkel gear, and toys for kiddies! Great pool and nice tennis courts and BBQ areas next to pool. Best of all was this a comfortable townhouse where it was like home, nice but not so fancy that you couldn't put feet up and relax and feel at home. I read other reviews about how hot the upstairs bedrooms were, but we didn't find it terrible with the fans, doors and windows open for cross breezes. Thank you, Jon, for providing a warm and inviting environment for us!

Until an AC unit is added upstairs, the house will continue to be quite hot and unbearable for some. Jon was very nice and answered questions quickly. But this home was hotter than expected. The space was comfortable with all the amenities you would need for the beach and nice pool and grilling area. It would have been perfect had it not been for the AC issue.

We enjoyed our stay very much. Sorry it has taken so long to review. We would stay here again. The location was perfect for us as we didn't want to be surrounded by activity. The beach access for whale and sunset watching was great. If you play tennis this is the place for you. Amenities include all you need for beach time. Kitchen was very adequately supplied. Nice to have washing machine. We used the patio a lot. Thanks for the coffee And chocolate!! South of the main Kona area and offered some great alternatives to dining options away from main tourist activities. The Strawberry Patch, Rebel Kitchen and (URL HIDDEN) All excellent. Grocery store and other restaurants within a short walk.
