Stayed here for a month in Sept 2021. Beautiful grounds, many tropical plants and trees meticulously maintained, and a lovely pool. Just sitting on the lanai and watching the ocean was all that I wanted. A few minutes away is the Keauhou shopping center with th very excellent KTA grocery store, a Longs Drugs, and a Saturday farmer's market for local organic produce. Plus several decent restaurants. As a solo traveler I felt very safe here. And very happy!

This out of the busy but close to food location was great with amazing views. The grounds are beautifully manicured and quiet. Nice pool, grills, outdoor shower, beach is close, and great spot on the rocks. The condo was clean and well stocked. I wish they gave shampoo and conditioner but the store was up the road for shopping and cooking. Nice to sit on the quiet patio and sip some local coffee. This is a great little spot to visit with a central location to a major road for travel/ exploration.

Like everyone else from the mainland, we booked two weeks in Kona, staying at KKSR. First time at here and didnt disappoint! Week one: three people in a one bedroom-pretty tight but, what the heck! Second week in a beautiful two bedroom with a massive lanai that we lived on! Plusses: 2 bedroom, nice pool, beach access, access to Keauhou and areas south, distance from town hubbub. Downside for us:no beachfront (knew that going in & still beautiful view from 2 bd!), distance from downtown hubbub ( I know +/-), no green flash on property! :-) Make sure to visit Keauhou Saturday market-Tuna, cookies, fresh fruit & veggies!

Don't even hesitate to book this property. If you have never been to Kona, this is the perfect place. Definitely get an ocean front building it is absolutely worth it. The facilities are beautiful with landscaping to rival a botanical garden, a private small black sand beach, immaculate tennis courts and a nearby surf and boogie board beach. We stayed here as we are surfers and divers and the location was perfect. We also used the pool a bit and it was perfectly nice but nothing to keep us occupied all day. The condos all seem to have the same floor plan - plenty of room for up to 6 people. The sun sets directly over the ocean front view - we ate on the lanai for all meals as we could not find a restaurant with a better view.

This is my second time to the Surf & Racquet. We stayed in Condo 3-201 . We had a perfect view of the water and could hear the waves rolling all night and beautiful birds in the morning. The condo is perfectly clean and had all the conveniences (laundry, etc.) plus tennis racquets, boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, etc. Our three children were with us and we all enjoyed the pool and the beautiful grounds. Walking to the supermarket and to get crepes in the morning was a treat. I think a lot of people retire here and I can see why. Totally relaxing place!
