A guest from Toronto, ON recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in December, 2016 We had a wonderful time we particularly loved the sunsets from our condo Our condo needed to be sprayed. There were a lots of ants. The door to the lanai from the livingrooom was defective. Knutson was great.
A guest from Bothell, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 13 days in December, 2016 We had a great vacation on the Bid Island at KKSR 2-204. The unit had most everything we needed (it lacked a can opener and pair of tongs - which we purchased and left in the unit - and could have used a larger frying pan). The kitchen needs updating and the squeak queen bed should be changed out for a king in the master bedroom. The unit needs new bed pillows all around.... The headboards on the twin beds in the second bedroom should either be attached or removed as they hit the walls anytime any movement was made on the beds.Overall the unit was nice and comfortable and we loved the wrap around lanai.
Gary R. from Johnstown, CO recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in November, 2016 Beautiful location, we enjoyed the lanai and watching the sunsets. Would definitely return. Thank You for some great photographs and memories.
A guest from Epping, NH recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in November, 2016 We enjoyed our stay in this comfortable condo, loved being right next to the tennis courts and the water. The property was clean and well maintained. Luck of the draw, the condo beneath us was being renovated during our stay so it was noisy. It didn't really matter, because we were busy, out and about during the day. So we would definitely come back again.

Reviewed by: John G. recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in October, 2016 Wonderful condo. The huge wrap around lanai with access from the master is great. We brought another couple and there was lots of room. There was beach chairs, boogie boards, lots of towels etc. Living room with sets of floor to ceiling windows both sides provided awesome views. Condo faces west and sunset is right in front of your lanai. We had several dolphin sitings including a school of about 30 leaping their way northwards.Kitchen well equipped, fridge has ice-maker. The BBQ's were a short walk away and never seemed busy.Local phone wasn't working when we arrived but management got it up and running quickly. Local manager Albert great help as he was co-ordinating parking lot resurfacing when we were there. Normally you have your own spot so no issue. Gated entrance so local residents only.You are south of town so about 15 mins to get into Kona. There is a good mall about two minutes away with a Longs, grocery store, several restaurants. There is a good snorkel beach 2 minutes north and a great sandy beach for swimming and boarding if the surf is up another few minutes up the road. Sea Paradise and Fair Winds work out of small marina few miles south if you want to snorkel Capt Cook monument.Looking forward to coming back.

Lise D. from Beloeil, Quebec recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in August, 2016 My husband and I are used to rent hotels for our vacations. Not any more! The condo was perfect: clean, well furnished, cute, GREAT location, SUPERB view, nothing was missing in there, from the dishes to the books and infos on the Big Island, they even had some reading books and games! But the clue was the lanai: we loved it so much, so spent our whole time on it, didn't even try the couch! It was very quiet, grounds well maintained, a lot of privacy. LOVED IT! Will recommend to all my friends and announce it on my Facebook. Special thanks to Blake Kessner, who answer to all queries super quick. I will no doubt return at some point, there was so much to do and see, we didn't had time to do it all.

A guest from Auburn, WA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in July, 2016 This condo is a nice spacious condo that worked out really well for our family of four. While it is a little dated, it was clean and has a great ocean front location. The condo is located in a quiet gated community. The kitchen was well equipped with lots of supplies. The queen size bed was a little small, but is very comfortable. They provide plenty of towels, both for the condo and the beach. It also has a new washer and dryer that worked well for us. It is located only a short drive to a really nice beach that had great snorkeling. Grocery store and other shops very close by. The only negative to this condo is you can hear everything in the condo above you.

A guest from Atlanta, GA does not recommend this property. Stayed for 7 days in May, 2016 Sofa is old and hard.Very loud noise from above of us, management did do nothing except saying sorry to us. Washing machine and dryer was broken it couldn't fixed, we had to return with wet clothes. Management could have make alternate arrangements.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Arun, Thank you so much for your review on Keauhou Kona Surf and Racquet Club 2-204. We apologize the washer was unrepairable during your stay, we have gotten a new one. However, the technician did confirm the dryer was working just fine. I'm not sure why you would return with wet clothes, if the dryer was working fine? We're sorry you experienced noisy guests above you, we unfortunately do not manage the property above 2-204. We contacted the resident manager to try and inform the guests to quiet down but we could not get a hold him when you had called. I told you this personally, and you seemed understanding about the matter? It's unfortunate you left unhappy. We wish the best for you. -Knutson & Associates, Property Management

They were even able to arrange for us to come in two hours earlier than the normal check in time. We only had one small issue, the WiFi did not work in the back bedroom. Other than that, it was a great experience.

Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 17 days in March, 2016 Property location is great. The condo has beautiful views. Grounds are perfectly maintained. Nice pool and tennis courts. Condo was clean and fairly well equipped. Some parts are in need of updating, bathrooms are only partially updated, and sliding doors and screens need serious work. Bed in master bedroom is small and not very good.

Jon C. from Zurich, XX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in March, 2016 This is what makes this place a little slice of heaven - the view. It is really lovely, and if you love the ocean, you most likely cannot get better than this. The second best thing to say about the unit, is it layout and sense of space. It just works.Of course there were things that we were not too fond of, it really needs a good top to bottom cleaning. I know that salt and sea are two horrible enemies, but staying on top of things can help. Please take the glass off the big outside table to vacuum and clean the space between the glass and metal - it is disgusting. Also, the top of the fan in the kitchen is need of good scrub. Little things just bothered us tremendously, the mattress was very uncomfortable, as were the sheets. Wish the shower doors were not so caked with scrum on the bottom.We just felt that these things let the view and layout down. We also were not treated so nicely by Brent when we arrived in the office. So, sorry for making a mistake and arriving at the office and not the unit, but we honestly did not get the email (it could have ended up in Spam). Just treat guests with a bit more niceness - it was an honest mistake.Also please do something about the hanging blinds, the ones by the sliding door bed area do not close or open or turn.If the cleanliness was addressed, and the bedding bettered, we would be happy to recommend this place.

A guest from Victoria, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 21 days in January, 2016 we appreciated the good quality carpet in the unit - but the beds and living room sofas and chairs were saggy and the upholstery and bed covers were old and faded. Fake plants were dusty (and don't improve the ambiance in any event), apart from that the unit was spotless. The kitchen had the bare essentials and the usual poor quality, dull knives typically found in rental units.

Cindy H. from Surrey, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in July, 2015 We enjoyed our stay at the Surf and Rawuet club. The unit was clean,big and had everything we needed to enjoy 10 days in paradise. The wrap around lanai was amazing and we spent a lot of time sitting out there soaking up the spectacular view. The pool was nice,kept clean and well maintained. This unit was great for a family of 4. The few downsides were how hot the unit was at night. Bigger, more powerful stand up fans for bedrooms would be a plus. A proper king size bed in master bedroom would have been nice. The bed was very small and uncomfortable for two.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Cindy, Thank you so much for your review at KKSR#2-204!! It's a gorgeous condo, we're glad you enjoyed it. Yes, I do understand this summer has been exceptionally hot. This is definitely not the norm. The bed in the master, is a Queen sized which most guests happen to love. We're sorry to hear you did not enjoy it. We do hope to welcome you back in the future! Mahalo, Blake Kessner Property Manager
Reviewed by: Laura H. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in July, 2015 Renting our lodging was easy as could be. Blake was very helpful and responsive from the very beginning. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and were so happy to secure this corner unit with the amazing view and the sound of the surf. The unit was very spacious with an abundance of supplies - from cooking utensils to boogie boards to beach towels. It had a wide array of entertainment options (games and beach gear) and even had skewers for cooking out on the grill. Having a full-size washer and dryer in the unit was a real plus. We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone who considering this location. They even have a phone app, which is very helpful with property information and nearby recommendations.

A guest from dallas, TX recommends this property. Stayed for 3 days in July, 2015 The setting and the view CANNOT be beat. The complex is peaceful and the grounds are gorgeous. We thoroughly enjoyed sitting on the lanai of #2-204 watching sunrises and sunsets. The waves crashing on the rocks right in front of our unit were spectacular! There was generous, well-appointed space for 4 adults. It was clean and the beds, pillows, and sheets were comfortable. The unit was stocked with an assortment of spices and cooking oils, cooking utensils (minus tools for the community barbeque), beach towels and chairs, games, and books. We didn?t lack for anything during our visit. That being said, we did notice a few things worth mentioning for people considering this unit. The master bath needs some attention. The shower door was difficult to slide due to corrosion, the toilet seat kept collapsing on itself, and the shower stall needs a good soaking in bleach (we thought the guest bath was lovely). The clothes washer needs a few cycles with some Affresh. We were disappointed to find it doesn?t have air conditioning since the temps during our visit soared into the 90s each day (we live in the south and forget there are parts of the world where this isn?t a given). There is good air circulation through the unit when the ceiling fans are all on and the windows and doors are open. Even so, the back bedroom, kitchen, and dining room were uncomfortably hot. We were all sweating by the time we finished eating dinner, even with a table fan we found in the unit pointing directly at us. The kitchen faucet leaks and has clearly done so for a long time. The counter behind the sink has water damage and the dish washer has rusted where the water runs down to the floor. Also, whatever was used to clean the kitchen floor made it extremely slippery. Some kitchen mats would be helpful to prevent any serious accidents. All that said, we thoroughly enjoyed the condo and our visit. We will keep this unit on our list to book again when we come back.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Gina, Thank you for taking the time to review KKSR2-204! We have taken note of all your concerns, and are addressing them now! We appreciate you bringing the master bath, shower door, toilet seat, & washer to our attention. We take guest comments very seriously, so thank you for going into detail. I understand this summer was extremely uncomfortable for everyone. It's one of the hottest summers we've had in the last 8 years! A rare one getting this hot! We hope you will come back in the future, so we can exceed your expectations next time! I assure you, all is being addressed!! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Selena C. from Riverton, Southland recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in June, 2015 Grant and Blake at Knutson Assoc were so helpful - organising the delivery of hired baby gear and helping us settle in.

Reviewed by: Jerry & Ida H. recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in March, 2015 We enjoyed our time in Hawaii very much. The condo was very clean and the lanai was exceptional! It was wonderful to be able to watch the whales when they made an appearance. I loved the art work in the condo. The pool was good but I would have liked to go into a hot tub as well. It was very close to the snorkeling beach and the market was right up the hill. The landscaping was well maintained. We loved watching the sunsets, there were a few that were spectacular at the golf course at the south end of the property. For the most part it was quite and peaceful. Our favorite place to eat was the Big Island Grill. Our favorite beach is Hapuna. Many thanks to the owner of the condo for sharing your space, it was wonderful!
Harrison A. from Gardendale, AL recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 The property was great for our stay. It was clean and well maintained with all the amenities we needed. It was quiet and restful. We ate in most nights and enjoyed the waves breaking on the shore. We made a 2 day trip to Volcano National Park and had a wonderful stay at a B&B in Volcano called B&B At The End Of The Road. On the return trip to Knoa we enjoyed seeing several beautiful water falls near Hilo. We went to see the sunset at the Visitors Center on Mauna Kea. We had a great whale watching experience with Adventure X. It was a 40 minute drive so we visited Mauna Kea beach and had lunch in Kawaihae at Seafood Bar. Great food reasonably priced.
Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property. Stayed for 9 days in November, 2014 We loved our stay at #2-204. Being able to feel the ocean breezes and listen to the surf from either inside the condo or outside on the lanai was fabulous. It was perfect for 2 people, but 4 adults might find the living room furniture limited. However, there is plenty of comfortable seating on the lanai. The kitchen could use a little spiffing such as a block of sharp knives, but it was functional. Bathrooms and laundry were great.
Kathleen M. from Palo Alto, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in November, 2014 The unit is beautiful with a deck overlooking the shore and you can hear the surf at night. Shopping and the highway are close by, with snorkeling at Kahalu'u Beach Park walking distance away. A quiet and peaceful home away from home.

There are few items that need replacing or needs repair.
Peggy C. from Pleasant Hill, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2014 There are a couple of items that need repair or replacing. They include: ? The toaster needs to be replaced. Only one slot works.? One of the lounge chairs on the deck is broken and needs repairing. We noticed it was broken when we brought it indoors for protection from the hurricane.? We had to replace the wine opener -- the first time we opened a bottle of wine it broke.? There was a shortage of bowls for serving, plus the place did not have a medium size frying pan for our use. Other than that, we did enjoy the condo -- the view -- and everything else in the area.Peggy Conway

Reviewed by: Larry O. recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in October, 2014 We've stayed at the Keauhou Surf several times over the years. While the internals of the units are somewhat dated you can't beat the location and proximity to the water. They don't build them this close anymore.The unit and layout were great. Second floor with a corner lanai offers impressive views. Unit had your typical stocking of plates, cookware, etc. Toaster needs to be replaced.Keauhou is a nicer area relative to the pier area if you want quite and easy access to KTA and Kam III road to the Queen K.Great value for the price and location and we would stay again at this unit.

A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property. Stayed for 8 days in July, 2014 We stayed here for 8 nights. Gorgeous view (sunset!) and clean unit. Entire condominium was well maintained. Only thing we did not like was that I guess one of the neighbors (don't know which one) was smoking, I smelled smoke when we were having a breakfast on the balcony, and someone moved in upstairs late at night, talking laud and noisy foot steps. Other than these incidents, we loved the place.
Fara B. from Parker, Colorado recommends this property. Stayed for 5 days in June, 2014 We stayed at the condo from June 5-10th, 2 adults and 2 teenage girls. It was a lovely place! The grounds of the Surf/Racquet Club are very well kept. The condo is clean,very well furnished with lovely local Hawaiian artwork on the walls. The 2nd bedroom(not pictured in VRBO) has 2 single beds, dresser, desk, night table. There are many extras like beach towels, beach chair, umbrella, books/games/DVDs; bring your own tennis/badminton racquet or volleyball. The drive to Kailua takes 10-15min. The walk uphill to the shopping center takes about 10min. I highly recommend this property if you want a quiet, beautiful retreat with a gorgeous waterfront view.
Reviewed by: Cindy H. recommends this property. Stayed for 4 days in February, 2014 The condo was very nice. It was great that there were boogie boards and umbrellas in the closet for our use when we were there. We also loved the use of the washer and dryer. Kitchen was adequately stocked with dishes and needed pots and pans. The pans were in poor shape but it is a rental. The view from the lanai was great. Being February, we saw several whale right from the lanai. There is not air conditioning, which being February, we did not need it. The location is close to great snorkeling and town. A bit expensive when you add in all the extra fees.

A guest from Vancover, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 6 days in December, 2012 The unit was in good shape, was clean and also had many vacation supplies such as coolers, beach towels, chairs, boogie boards, mats and beach umbrellas. Really nice to stay in a place that made us feel welcome. The bbq in the main common area was not good, it just could not get hot enough to cook even fish. We eventually discovered an alternate bbq in an odd location, along an unlit stone pathway near the golfcourse. This bbq worked well, although we had to bring a flashlight to see what we were doing. Odd. The strata needs to upgrade the bbq areas. great location and great unit. We would happily stay there again.
A guest from Pleasant Hill, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 10 days in October, 2012 There were a couple of problems --1. The person upstairs walked like an elephant. She was quite noisy.2.

A guest from Fresno, CA recommends this property. Stayed for 7 days in August, 2012 We enjoyed our stay in unit 2204, the wrap around lanai was wonderful and allowed for great air flow. The sunset views were terrific and it was a nightly event.The beds were very comfortable, the kitchen had almost anything you would need. There were also toys for the beach, which is very nice as everything in Hawaii is expensive.The bathrooms are a bit dated and could use some work, especially the showers. I am not a big fan of mold and I know it is a humid climate be we have stayed in quite a few other island rentals and have not ever had any mold in the bathrooms.Overall the unit was very nice and the complex was also a great. The pool area is nice and we also enjoyed our nightly bbq.

A guest from victoria, B.C. recommends this property. Stayed for 11 days in December, 2011 the only problem we had was that we were given the wrong code to open the gate into the complex. We didn't get in until midnight, and could not get our car in through entrance gate until luckily, a car exited the complex and we had to held the exit lane gate open, and then drive through the exit to get in. Not the best welcome.
A guest from Nanaimo, BC recommends this property. Stayed for 14 days in November, 2011 Right on the water with wonderful weather. Convenient to go into Kona and near all necessary amenities. Only drawback was that the rental agency gave us the wrong number for entering the complex.

Stayed for 12 days in December, 2010 We were very happy to stay at this condo during winter vacation.Location was great; ocean front, beautiful sunset everyday, close to shopping, enjoyed tennis with other visitors. We had breakfast every morning on the spacious lanai right by the ocean where we could hear the waves. We would definitely stay here again. Thank you for the wonderful vacation.

Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates I am sorry that you found mold in the master bathroom. Although we try very hard to make sure that doesnt occur, because of our humid environment, we cant control it all. I would have gladly sent the cleaners back in to make sure it was nice and fresh for you, had you notified me. We hope to see you again soon, and Happy Holidays!
