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.
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.
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!
