Kona in January Jim F. from Kelowna, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in January, 2016 The location was fantastic. No surprises at all. The townhome looked exactly like the photos. We loved the view from the ocean facing bedroom. The unit is just a short walk to Kahaluu State Park which is a great place for first time snorkelers. If we return to Kona we will seek out this unit.The site manager was very helpful as we weren't sure where unit 3 was. He called Knutson for us. The title on our check-in instructions says "Keauhou Kona Surf & Racket Club 3". No mention of apartment or townhome so a little confusing for first time renters of this unit. Even the site manager wasn't sure where we were staying. Grin, we'll know where to go the next time.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Jim, Thank you so much for your review on our amazing towntown#3. We apologize for the confusion in your check in instructions. We have altered the info. We hope to welcome you back next year! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Kona vacation Mark & Yvonne R. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 18 days in December, 2015 We have been staying at Surf & Racquet #3 for about 16 years, partially because we love the location and because we've gotten to be friends with the owners. Although the unit is not always as clean as we'd like it to be, and we are aware of how difficult that is in a tropical climate, Blake has been particularly helpful with that and with arranging repairs on malfunctioning fixtures and appliances. He even arranged a second visit from the cleaner which we very much appreciated. We'll likely be returning for another 16 years.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Mark & Yvonne, Thank you so much for your fantastic review on KKSR#3! We're always happy to see you!! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager

A peaceful respite A guest from Elwood, Victoria recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in September, 2015 An older yet well maintained, peaceful property - obviously a loved holiday home. The constant crashing of the waves hypnotic to the senses, and the bobbing and tumbling of the turtles causing an addictive glueing of the eyes to the immediate tumbling ocean views.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Jenni! Thank you so much for reviewing the amazing direct oceanfront KKSR#3! It truly is a unique property, so glad you enjoyed it! We hope to see you again!!! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
10 Days in Paradise! A guest from Franklin, OH recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in July, 2015 We just returned from our 10 night stay at Keauhou Surf & Racquet Club. The view and proximity to the ocean was incredible. We drank Kona Coffee every morning from the lanai while watching the waves roll in. We encountered many sea turtles, beautiful fish, and crabs on our morning strolls. For the location alone we would stay here again. The unit was clean and well stocked with a starter supply of everything we needed. There is a shopping plaza near by in the resort that has absolutely everything you would need. The pool was very nice with a large shallow end. We had our 5 and 6 year olds with us and they loved the pool. With that being said, this seemed more of an adult community to me in that there were only a few families with children that we saw. Our kids were very well behaved but we still got some glances from older folks at the pool. My husband was not thrilled to he without air conditioning but we would willing sacrifice the AC again for the location.

Fabulous vacation A guest from Glendora, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in June, 2015 This property was very clean & had everything you need to cook & many extras for going to the beach. Wonderful location, literally on the ocean. The housekeeper, Tess, is a gem & I cannot say enough good things about our contact, Grant, from Knutson & Associates. He went the extra mile to make our stay beyond perfect. You feel like you are home the minute you walk thru the door. We will stay here against n, for sure.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Thank you so much for your amazing review of the gorgeous Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club#3 We hope you will choose to come to the property in the future! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Breathtaking Ocean View and Beauitful Property A guest from North Las Vegas, NV recommends this property.
Stayed for 9 days in May, 2015 We were so impressed by the condo inside and out. All the people at Knutson were very nice and accommodating. They handled everything easily and were extremely professional. The condo was nicely decorated and fully equipped. Our only two requests would have been more fans, especially downstairs in the late afternoon and perhaps a television in the bedroom. We would definitely stay at this condo again and will use Knutson for property rentals in the future.
Nice Kona Condo Basecamp Bruce W. from South Lake Tahoe, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in January, 2015 The Staff was professional. Instructions for entry to the club and for keys were clear. The location is right near the beach with an onshore breeze through the windows and a path outside for beach access. The beach is rocky and pounded with rough surf, though this is typical of other nearby beaches. We used the outdoor patio everyday for breakfast and for a relaxing lunch/dinner at other times. It also served as a good basecamp for surfing lessons in Kona and day trips to Hapuna beach and night viewing of the active volcano at Mt. Kileua. Costco is nearby. The two bedrooms were perfect for the four of us--my wife and I and two daughters. Wifi service was good. The only downsides is minor and easily correctable: There is a small few-inch downward step near the inside of the entry way that we kept stumbling over until our daughter put a warning sign on it as a reminder. The fix for this is easy--put some reflective tape along the step as a reminder. I strongly suggest the owner make this minor improvement for liability reasons. if nothing else.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Thank you so much for your review on the direct oceanfront townhome#3 at the Surf & Racquet Club! We Will provide your feedback to the owner, thank you for bringing it to our attention. Mahalo!!! =Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Daily sunsets, sea breezes and sea turtles Chris G. from Delta, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 30 days in November, 2014 Townhouse 3 is a well equipped accommodation in a quiet area 5 miles south of Kona. We loved the location and the number of activities nearby such as snorkelling, tennis, paddle boarding, kayaking, manta swimming, etc. The unit is very home like with lots of extras. We have already booked a return visit.

Satisfaction, yet again Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in April, 2014 We have stayed here many times and it has become, for us, a place of solace. It's out of the tourist madness but convenient to everything. Thanks to John and Karen for providing a wonderful place.
PARADISE IN HAWAII A guest from Eagle Point, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 44 days in February, 2014 The work in the large field next door was very annoying at times.Carving logs with chain saws. The rest of the time was great.
Great property where we've stayed for many years Mark & Yvonne R. from Walnut Creek, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 23 days in December, 2013 Karen & John McCahan who own this property are delightful folks who have become friends over the many years that we've stayed in their very comfortable, conveniently located townhouse.
Loved it A guest from Brighton, QLD recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in August, 2013 We loved this accommodation and its location. It was so relaxing and peaceful and we really appreciated the well-stocked kitchen, free wifi and homely touches like the books and games (not that we spent much time inside). We liked it so much that we extended our stay! Thankyou for making our stay so comfortable and hassle-free - it was a great base to explore the Big Island.
Kona townhouse A guest from Lowell, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 6 days in August, 2013 Great location...just need a little more of supply esp dish soap...otherwise the place is great...well supplied...Enjoyed the visit and the stay. It needs to have a big recycle bin next the trash bin...the only recycle bin we found is next to the pool/office. Also the property needs some upgrade...the window blinds at the other room is broken... bathtub upstairs needs more cleaning...sort of dirty... but downstairs shower is accessible and clean.
Beautiful setting, good location and value Reviewed by: Shirley O. recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in August, 2013 We were glad to have rented the Surf & Racquet Club Unit 3. The setting was picturesque with the ocean and sea turtles right outside our unit. In addition, the location was handy for good shopping and a Manta Ray dive for my husband and son. Although we are used to air conditioned sleeping, the fans and wind from the lanai helped us be able to sleep relatiely comfortably in August.
Townhouse too hot and buggy Cathy D. from San Antonia, TX does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 61 days in May, 2013 I guess to the vegetation all around and this being on the ground floor, every night there were huge roaches in the kitchen. I left no food out and cleaned the counters with bleach every night but to no avail. It was also very hot-no air flow I actually went outand bought my own fans so I could survive. I have stayed at Surf &Racquet many times but always in the condos. Never iwill I stay in the town houses again. The only good thing was the view but could not enjoy it on the lanai due to the bugs

Best Value on the Big Island Benny & Barbara K. from 1, 1 recommends this property.
Stayed for 13 days in March, 2013 This was our 8th trip to Hawaii. 4th to the Big Island. 4th time at Kona Surf & Racket club. 2nd time in this unit. At least 2 weeks each trip. We have been all over the Big Island. Compared this unit to lots of other options. For the price you can not get anything close to this nice of a unit and location. You are on the water. Unit is very nice. The location is great. Close to good snorkeling. Good entertainment. Good shopping. Lots of activities. This trip I caught a sword fish. Swam with dolphins and Manta Rays. Zip lined. Snorkeled almost every day. Watched whales. Watched lots of hula. Ate too much good food. Went to the volcano. Went to Hilo twice. Hikes to Captain Cook monument. Lots of other stuff from this location.Drank fresh Kona coffee every day, grown near by. Every day you wake up to the sound of waves and birds. The smell of roasting coffee and flowers. I wish I was still there. A month would not be enough.
Paradise A guest from Pittsburgh, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in February, 2013 Great experience ! It had a great location. Sea turtles were seen almost every morning!!lwe loved going to sleep listening to the waves crashing! The only negative was tiny ants but every place has that! Also came with everything you need.

Beautiful location Reviewed by: Mimi B. recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in November, 2012 We love the view, especially from master bedroom. The staff is very helpfull of explaining things. When we had a problem with ice maker, they sent someone to fixed it the next day. However we did find the dishwasher is old and dishes weren't clean. There was some kind of white powder all over the place when we first arrived which we don't know if they were salt air related?

Stayed for 29 days in September, 2012 My wife and I spend the month of Sept 2012 Keauhou Kona Surf & Racket Club, Townhouse #3. We could not have been more pleased. When we arrived, the unit was clean and looked great. The location is amazing, walk right out on to the beach. During our stay, we had a couple of opportunities to talk with Knutson & Associates, with the always being very responsive and professional. I would highly recommend the unit we rented and Knutson & Associates to my friends and family.
Great Townhouse John R. from San Francisco, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 13 days in April, 2012 The unit was extremely clean, well appointed and nicely laid out. My only recommendation would be to have some beach things ( mats, chairs, towels ) for the guests. I left behind a chair and beach towel for future renters.
Big Island Love! Margaret L. from Woodbridge, VA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in September, 2011 I was on the Big Island the first two weeks of Sept. 2011 and what a blessing it was! This townhouse sits right on the ocean - heaven! I spent many mornings sitting on the lanai watching the dolphins and/or at the waters edge to watch sea turtles in the cove. If you are in the front bedroom (not on the ocean side), you can still hear the waves at night - I loved that. This home is in a great location, close enough to enjoy Kona, but far enough away (maybe 4 miles?) that you don't have to deal with any noise/crowds of people. All you hear when at this townhouse are the birds and the ocean. A shopping center is within walking distance and a Farmer's Market at the shopping center on Saturday and another at a nearby hotel on Wednesday - we always had organic, delicious veggies and fruit. On the ocean side of the house there is a big tree that drops fruit(or nuts?) that land on the roof and can be a bit surprising, especially at night but we got use to it. There is also a great bay about 1/2 mile down the road with beautiful snorkeling. Make sure the management company gives you the key code to the townhouse AND the front gate. We were only given the keycode to the townhouse not the front gate which was kinda frustrating after 12+ hours of travel. We were able to follow someone in and later asked a resident for the code. The townhouse is roomier than the pictures offer, there were three adults in our party and there was plenty of space. The living furniture is a bit clunky/big for the living room but it really doesn't matter cause you'll be in Hawaii - ENJOY!!!
