The Surf and Racquet Club

New Picture (3)

New Picture (6)After searching for a place on Kona for a family vacation we found The Surf and Racquet Club. Upon arriving I was pleasantly surprised to discover it is one of the best places I have ever stayed in. My favorite part was the back porch surrounded by beautiful trees, foliage and birds. Just past our back sitting area and next to the pool is a lava rock sacred grounds. Our unit was close to the sea. I liked walking down to the little beach next to the abandoned botanical garden at sunset.

New Picture (7)The Surf and Racquet club is in a great location on Kona. You can find everything you need here. A few blocks away is the Kahalu’u beach park. It is a fantastic place to snorkel! We had fun observing lots of exotic fish and huge turtles. My daughter took a beginning surfing lesson in this area too. The farmers market at the shopping center close to our condo was my favorite place to buy food. I enjoyed eating huge avocados, raw cocoa, papayas and other fresh local treats.

New Picture (9)We explored driving up the coast to beaches including Kiholo Bay where there are trails from the beach through the lava bed to the bay. Hapuna had the whitest sand and big body surfing waves.

After returning from The Big Island, I was reminded of the condo CDM members may book on Kona and coincidently it is at the Surf and Racquet club. I highly recommend it!
