About the Owner

I am a retired engineer and community volunteer living in Santa Clara, California. I was born in Hawaii 54 years ago when my father was in the army, based on Mauna Kea on the Big Island. When I was growing up, my family would migrate to Hawaii each August for our annual vacation. My sister and I now own this townhouse. We put considerable effort and pride into maintaining, updating, and decorating our Hawaiian paradise which we view as a priceless treasure.

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how perfect this vacation rental was for myself and my family during our recent stay. We loved everything about this townhouse, especially it's location! You could not be closer to the beach/ocean. You are literally about 10 steps from the beach once you walk outside your lanai door. We loved falling asleep and waking to the sounds of the ocean each day.

The townhouse complex was extremely well maintained and quiet. It is located in an area that is within walking distance of a grocery and drug stores. It is only a short drive into downtown Kona for more shopping and restaurants. One of the best snorkelling beaches in Kona is only a short walk away. My family also enjoyed snorkelling directly out front of the townhouse.

Sally, the owner, has stocked her townhouse with everything you could possibly need to enjoy the comforts of home while you are in paradise. She was extremely accommodating and quick to respond each time I contacted her as well.

This was our first time on the Big Island but it definitely won't be our last. There is so much more that we want to do and see here. We will 100% be back to this townhouse again!

Pure Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

I cannot say enough about how happy we were in this wonderful townhouse. It is located right on the ocean. We fell asleep to the sounds of the ocean every night. You can walk a few steps from your lanai and be standing on the beach, which usually has no one else on it or a handful at most! The complex is extremely well maintained and the area is very quiet. Sally's townhouse feels like a home away from home. We had everything that we needed, from kitchen supplies to snorkelling gear and boogie boards. The beds were very comfortable too.

The location of the townhouse is only a short drive to downtown Kona where various shops and restaurants are. A grocery store and drug store is located within walking distance. We did a lot of exploring on the Big Island and were always happy to come home after a long day and relax here.

Sally was extremely flexible with us and replied to my emails right away whenever I had a question.

I would highly recommend this townhouse and we plan to be back, hopefully many times!

Fabulous Rental!!

  • 5 of 5

It's been said before in previous reviews...this is a great rental! Clean, quiet, very well maintained grounds, excellent location, beach gear available for use, etc.

Communication from the owners could not have been better. Sally sent out lots of helpful information and the response to a minor issue we had on arrival was handled within hours.

Very highly recommended.

Excellent in every way

  • 5 of 5

Excellent vacation rental in every way. Oceanfront, probably the best unit in the complex. Great privacy on patio and excellent view of the surf. Gear was provided for various activities - Boogie Boards, Snorkeling Gear, Chairs, Umbrellas, even a Surfboard! Well organized. Location was quiet at all times other than the sound of the ocean. Close to groceries and lots of activites nearby. Would stay here again in a heartbeat.

This is the perfect place to come and unwind!

  • 5 of 5

If you like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean, an oceanfront lanai, and gorgeous sunsets, this is the place for you. The townhouse has everything you need for a great vacation and is just a short walk to one of the best snorkeling spots on the island.

Going Back!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed here at Keauhou #5 which is the most convenient location in the complex for accessing and enjoying the beach. You're right there on the water whether you want lay on the beach or enjoy it eating on the patio. For BBQ enthusiasts there are several peppered around the complex with 2 BBQs right near this #5 unit. We used them almost every night and dinned right on the patio.

The entire property is beautifully landscaped and maintained, and of course has Hawaii written all over it.

Working with the owners was a breeze, and with this nicely appointed interior meeting all of our needs, we've already scheduled our next visit.

From the Owner

This property has been passed down through the generations. My father and mother purchased it because they loved this unique location and viewed it as the finest in the Hawaiian Islands. My father was an avid snorkeler and scuba diver. We spent our family vacations when I was growing up exploring the ocean reefs in front of KKSRC #5.

From the Owner

Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club, Townhouse #5 is located right on a gorgeous quiet beach. It is one of the very few properties on the entire island which have oceanfront privacy and solitude, Also, the ocean reefs directly in front off KKSRC #5 offer some of the most pristine, clear snorkeling and scuba diving in the world. Also, when the surf is up (normally in the winter), renters can use the surf board in the townhouse to surf the waves! Honu, Hawaiian Sea Turtles, can be seen almost every day on the beach. Locals call this location a 'Honu Haven' because it is one of the few resting places for this gorgeous turtle. Also, during low tide Hawaiian petroglyphs can be seen on the rocks which form tide pools. This is a wonderful location to begin learning about ancient Hawaiian history!
