About Jim & Nancy Sommers Hawaii State Tax ID # 30130708

My wife and I live in Los Angeles. About 15 years ago we fell in love with Kona. We purchased our condo in 2001 and spend as much time there as possible. It really is our home away from home and we enjoy sharing it with others. The location is great.

Jim & Nancy Sommers Hawaii State Tax ID # 30130708 purchased this condo in 2001

Why Jim & Nancy Sommers Hawaii State Tax ID # 30130708 chose Kailua Kona

We wanted to be as close to the ocean as possible, we love the Kona Reef and the little town of Kona, which is just a 10 minute walk from our condo..

What makes this condo unique

We never miss watching the amazing sunsets from our lanai. The dolphins put on a show for us everyday and whale season is really exciting. Kona is a very special place and has something for everyone.

Fantastic condo at Kona Reef!

  • 5 of 5
Wow...where to start? Oceanfront location is great - from the lanai we watched turtles swim in to sun themselves each day, schools of yellow tang swimming among the lava rocks, & beautiful sunsets. A bonus is the sandy beach & picnic area (see photos from the lanai & kitchen window) - not too common on the Big Island in our experience. The pool area was quiet and well-maintained. From Kona Reef it is just minutes to walk into town with plenty of options for dining & shopping.

As for the condo itself, it was superb. The top floor corner location is quite private. The unit was very clean, and comfortable for our family of four (2 teens). A/C was another bonus, as the temperature topped 90 degrees on several days during our visit (don't assume your condo will have this; ours on Maui did not). The description & photos are accurate, but I'd have to say it's better than advertised; another reviewer said they don't do it justice - I agree.

What really set staying at this condo apart were its owners, Jim & Nancy. Great folks! From the time we inquired about its availability (on short notice), we were in contact with Jim. He did everything to make the experience go as smoothly as possible via conversations and email exchanges prior to our trip, sending a very helpful packet of maps, recommended activities & restaurants...even sending an email just before we arrived (from Maui) reminding us to let him know if we needed anything. It was like staying at the property of an old friend.

One last point: I inadvertently left my watch on the dresser when we checked out. Upon our return home, Jim had already emailed that Housekeeping had notified him they had it and would send it back...which they did. What a pleasure to deal with such honest people.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED - Thanks Jim & Nancy!

Fabulous Kona Reef Condo Right On The Beach

  • 5 of 5
Our arrival date was the same as not one but, two hurricanes. We really lucked out the rain was minimal and the winds about the same. Staying on the Kona side we were protected by the mountains. Jim and Nancy's condo was the perfect place to be. The ocean really was stirred up at times but watching the surfer's from the lanai was like our own private show. It was so nice having all amenities that was provided I felt like it was our own home ( and yes we could live there). Jim was so helpful with all instructions, places to go to eat and beaches to snorkle. I have been to Kona several times but, it was fun going by Jim's list.
I would totally recommend this beautiful condo not only for the view but, for how well it is maintained and how close it is to Kailua town.

Absolutely Fabulous!!

  • 5 of 5
This condo is sensational. The view of the boogie boarders and surfers on the waves from the lanai made it difficult to leave the place every day. When we could finally peel ourselves away, we had no problem finding great things to do for the whole family, because Jim sent us so much great information about restaurants, activities, beaches, and everything else! You can walk to a luau at the resort next door, or walk another couple hundred yards right into Kona Town where you can eat, shop and just people watch.

The unit itself had plenty of space for our family, and the saltwater pool and BBQ area were fantastic. With the full kitchen in the unit, we had at least half of our meals in, which put some money our pockets for other activities.

When we return to the big island, we won't even be looking at another place!

Thanks so much for providing such a great space!

Our stay at the Kona Reef Resort Sept 2013

  • 5 of 5
Loved this condo - the views are terrific and the unit is in great shape and very reasonably priced. The owner was extremely helpful as we were in town to look at properties to purchase ourselves, and he was a wealth of information. Since the unit is very close to town, many mornings we walked in to have breakfast or to do some shopping. We would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Great Condo on Kona Reef

  • 5 of 5
We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the Kona Reef condo. We were well-prepared by Jim on what to expect before and after our arrival, with recommendations ranging from the best beaches to local eateries. The condo had more than enough room for four of us, with a well-stocked kitchen and even beach chairs and beach towels provided. Every evening, we soaked in the beautiful ocean view from the condo lanai. The resort property pool and hot tub was great, and we found the gas grills provided in the common area to be immaculately clean. Kailua-Kona is a short ten minute walk or less away with shops, restaurants and more. We enjoyed several local eateries including the Big Island Grille where we were introduced to the "Loco Moco" for breakfast and The Fish Hopper for excellent fresh seafood. The local marketplace is a must-see, with awesome vegetables and local artisan wares galore. Our two favorite outings were snorkeling at The Place of Refuge where we ran into a school of dolphins unexpectedly, and the ATV tour on the northern coast. All in all, we thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kona Reef Resort condo and the Big Island. It was quite an adventure!

Wonderful Location!

  • 5 of 5
We have nothing but 5 Star comments on this property. The owner was very accessible and easy to work with. Having stayed in Kona for the past 10 years, we found this condo to be the best we have ever stayed in. The condo was located within walking distance of center of Kona. Sunset views and watching dolphin from the lanai never disappointed us. Jim and Nancy had suggestions of places to visit that were right on. We will return.
