Bring your earplugs A guest from alpine, CA does not recommend this property.
Stayed for 9 days in March, 2016 This place needs serious soundproofing. I could hear people above us all day and all night . Not very relaxing. Sounds like thunder all day . Vents and fans so dirty that when turned on chunks of dust go flying. I have pictures.

Beautiful Ocean Front Condo Jeanine S. from Aptos, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in November, 2015 The condo is beautifully decorated, comfortable, wonderful location. We had a few maintenance needs the first day, and had a maintenance helper at the condo within a couple of hours after phoning the office. The condo was comfortable, supportive, fun, close to our favorite snorkel beach and stores. We hope to return to this condo next year.

Great location Suzanne N. from Vancouver, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in October, 2015 Nicely decorated. Love the location right near the rocky shore. The property amenities are very nice. There seems to be a bit of deferred maintenance in the unit which one wouldn't expect at this price point.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Suzanne, Thank you for your review on KKSR 2-103. We have taken note of all the deferred maintenance you brought up, and addressed everything! Thank you for bringing it to our attention! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager

1 Week in Kona Reviewed by: Cindy D. recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in August, 2015 We arrived on a hot and humid Thursday night and discovered the unit did not have air conditioner. There were ceiling fans in every room which help a little. Beside the heat and humidity, the fan in the master bedroom squeaked loudly throughout the night. We couldn't get any sleep for 4 nights. The shower in the second bedroom didn't work. We called and reported the problems the very next day. No repair man showed up. We called again the next day and were told the repair man will call. The repair man didn't show up until Monday! The fan was in such bad condition that he had to replace it. And he later came back and fix the shower. The unit was in a good location. It just needs some attention in maintenance details.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Cindy, I understand it's been exceptionally hot this summer, definitely not the norm. I'm sorry you had to deal with the fan & shower issues! Although I am glad to hear that all issues have been resolved. We hope to welcome you back in the future!!! 2103 is a gem in the Surf & Racquet Complex. Respectfully, Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Great Getaway Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 3 days in June, 2015 We were looking for a quick, last-minute getaway with our kids. It turned out to be just what we were looking for. Great location on Alii Drive, close to popular beaches but felt far away from the traffic. The condo is beautifully decorated, everything we needed, and clean. Local grocery store is less than 5 minutes up the road. We bbq'd, played volleybal with the family. Other guests we met were friendly and pool area was well kept. The only thing we could ask for was more fans in the unit. It gets hot in Kona. But the VIEW!! We loved listening to the ocean and the breeze and the birds. The rental agency were attentive and ensured we had a great time. We're definitely going back. Big Mahalos!
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Jaime-Lee! Thank you so much for your fantastic review on KKSR#2103!! We hope to see you again soon!!! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
It was a great time... Fedor N. from Philadelphia, PA recommends this property.
Stayed for 14 days in March, 2015 We really enjoyed staying at this condo and liked almost everything: location, view, lanai, etc. There were some small issues with maintenance, but nevertheless I would recommend this condo to everyone.
Spring break in Hawaii Terry s. from anchorage, AK recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in March, 2015 The rental was very nice. Loved the location! The condo itself was clean and welcoming. We felt right at home. We really enjoyed the pool as well. It was great having the towels and boogie boards and other things to use. Having the washer and dryer in the condo was such a great convenience. Of note, we had a hard time finding the condo from the directions but eventually got there. That was our only hiccup.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Terry, Thank you so much for reviewing the amazing Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club#2103! We are so glad to hear you had a great time. Please come back again soon! Mahalo! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Great condo for a family holiday Brian S. from Southbank, Victoria recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in December, 2014 Excellent location for exploring the southern coast of Big Island. Roomy (good size), excellent facilities (pool and tennis court). Good to have access to snorkel gear, beach chairs, beach umbrella and tennis racquets. Poor sound proofing from the floor above so that you could hear people moving around was the only negative.
Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Brian! Thanks for reviewing the direct oceanfront Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club#2103! What a fantastic choice. We hope to see you again next year!! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Great condo by the ocean. Steven R. from Orting, WA recommends this property.

Property Manager Response: Response from Knutson & Associates Aloha Steven! Thank you for your fantastic review on the fabulous direct oceanfront unit 2103! We would love to see you again next year! Mahalo! -Blake Kessner, Property Manager
Slice of Paradise Julie N. from Spriongfield, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 12 days in July, 2014 Wow! What a great location! Loved the whole complex, great staff, great pool!! Loved the grass in front, as we could walk right out through the lanai with our coffee in the morning to the picnic table to look for dolphins, watch the boats and just enjoy the ocean! Great schools of Yellow Tangs were amazing for the whole family to see, even the one who didn't want to swim with them!!
Comfortable and beautifully furnished Reviewed by: Melody S. recommends this property.
Stayed for 4 days in May, 2014 Our family, me, my husband, and our two sons, (20 and 22) stayed 4 nights in this unit. When arriving, you must go through a gate and enter a code to be allowed in. We did have a bit of trouble finding the unit but once we did we were very pleased. Upon entering, we were very pleasantly surprised by the decor and view. It is beautifully furnished and both the living area and master have sliding doors onto an oceanside lanai. You are separated from the ocean by just a few feet of grass and a walkway. This is not a location that you can enter the water or swim. The condo is set above the water on a lava cliff but it is beautiful to look at and swimming/snorkeling beaches are nearby. You will definitely need to have a car here. The condo is a few miles south of Kailua Kona as well as beaches, shopping, etc. There is no AC but there are 4 ceiling fans. During our stay it did get a bit warm inside. I think a few extra floor fans would help. It was very quiet and we rarely saw anyone during our stay. I suspect this complex is mostly used for vacationers with very few permanent occupants.
wonderful location Reviewed by: Mary Beth A. recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in April, 2014 The location was wonderful. Accommodations great and location central to activities on the island.
Escape to Kona Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 13 days in March, 2014 My daughters, friends & family had a fantastic stay at the Keauhou Kona Surf & Racquet Club 2103. The facilities wereexceptional. If you would like to do some site seeing or simplywould like to go into town a car is a must. The bus service is very limited.
Over promising, under delivering A guest from Portland, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 5 days in January, 2014 We like this location a lot, but the building is older and showing its age. You hear the people upstairs when they walk around. Our main complaint is that management company said they would get tennis racquets for the unit and then never did. The place has 3 courts and no way to use them. Also, the 2 boogie boards were little and one was broken. The king-sized mattress is very soft. We did appreciate the tile floors in the condo, rather than carpet considering that the ocean is about 30 feet from the condo. The golf course is closed for renovating so we could use it for running in the morning which was a nice perk (golfers may be disappointed.)
What a wonderful place, we loved spending our Christmas here. Reviewed by: A guest recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2013 Ample space for the whole family, close to everything you will need but away from the bustle if you are looking for a retreat. Didn't want for anything in the kitchen, and included beach stuff!!! Arrived on a day a local farmers market was close by, there are great beaches nearby and it's a good launching pad to check out the other side of the island, be aware if you are travelling with young ones, it's a long drive to the other side. Thank you it was a brilliant holiday enhanced by great accommodation.
Close but not too close to Kailua-Kona for the 2013 Ironman. Jay L. from Portland, OR recommends this property.
Stayed for 11 days in October, 2013 The condo was large and spacious for all 5 of us and we could even fit one more in. The lani for just watching the sunset or having breakfast at the table while listening to the ocean was great. Small birds came in the morning and and some cats during the night time came by to see us. We left the screen doors open since no AC which helped me get acclimated for the race. We listen to the waves pound the rocks at night. Added bonus was the bin of snorkeling equipment that was used at the beach not far from the condo. Some minor electrical problems during our stay. We LOVED it!
Fun Week A guest from oakland, CA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in September, 2013 Very desirable location. Had an issue on our second night and the property manager took immediate care to remedy.Pool was terrific - met several lovely people there, they were helpful in suggesting what to see and do.
lovely, languid setting Reviewed by: Dianne S. recommends this property.
Stayed for 8 days in August, 2013 perfect place for family gatherings....large deck, large table, and lots of chairs! 4-year old grandson loved rolling down the grassy bank, which also made a perfect place for star gazing.
Bumped from original unit to a nice upgrade! MONICA H. from MEDFORD, Oregon recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in May, 2013 We were booked in a townhouse right on the beach, but were bumped due to the other tenant's mixup on dates. Nick did accommodate us nicely with a larger condo, though would have preferred the location of the other unit since better views of the beach, but we were quite happy with the condition of the condo we stayed in enjoyed the lovely sunsets from the lanai. Tastefully decorated and a comfortable bed.
Paradise Evelyn L. from West Kolona, BC recommends this property.
Stayed for 10 days in February, 2013 My husband and I spent 10 days in Kona at the Surf and Racquet Club. It was fabulous. The condo unit was ground level so you could walk out and see the ocean a few feet away and listen to the waves crashing against the rocks all night. We BBQ'd, swam in the pool and watched tennis. We don't play tennis but there plenty of people that did. Also noticed that lessons were available. Great eating places within walking distance. Marina for rentals and of course a 10 minute walk to the snorkling beach. We will be back some day. We are actualy from West Kelowna. Spelling error.
Reality Break, Feb 2013 Mikelle A. from Northville, MI recommends this property.
Stayed for 12 days in February, 2013 When we first arrived at our condo it was dark and it was not clear that we were in building 2 unit 103. After we called Nick, who was very helpful we found our unit and we were so pleased! The decor was exactly like I would have done myself. Very island feeling and tasteful. Felt like a big aloha hug. We opened the doors and listed to the surf all night. So amazing. We loved the quietness of being off of Alii Drive. Although we were steps away. There is a grocery store and a farmers market 1/4 mile away. The neighbors were friendly and the pool was big and clean. Some of the island's best snorkeling is walking distance from the unit. Just an amazing 2 weeks in paradise! Highly recommended. Good for families with kids too.
Lovely property! Suzanne N. from Vancover, WA recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in January, 2013 Overall, we had a very nice experience. There were a couple of relatively minor issues which kept this from being an all-around five-star vacation. First, we prefer a ground-floor location for ease of access to the grassy area - but, unfortunately, had VERY noisy upstairs neighbors. They had a baby which they let cry for 30 minutes at a time all through the night! It would be nice not to have to trade off access for sleep! We also had to contact the property manager to get a pool key and have a repair made which was reported prior to our arrival. They were very responsive, but it would have been nice for these items to have been taken care of without our needing to call. This is our second visit to KKSR 2103, and we will definitely be back again.
Great lanai! Barbara B. from Calgary,Alberta, Canada recommends this property.
Stayed for 7 days in December, 2012 The condo was spacious, clean and well equipped although the appliances could use updating. Beds were comfortable. The main floor location extended our space and the lanai was large with two distinct spaces, one for dining, one for lounging. We very much enjoyed listening to the surf at night and being right on the ocean. The complex is nicely landscaped but the pool is small and ordinary. We had to wait a couple of times to use the shared BBQ. Overall, we liked this condo.
