Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront Condo, 1 Bedroom + comfortable convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 4)

Unit D-3 at the Kona Reef is an absolutely oceanfront, recently-renovated, fully furnished, non-smoking, one bedroom condo with a complete kitchen. The lanai (patio) is located only 30 feet from the ocean. There is terrific tide pooling and exploring in the lava rocks. And if it's sand you want, you need to walk only a few hundred feet to the sandy park next to the condo complex (ocean swimming at the park is for experienced swimmers only.)

This recently renovated and fully furnished condo provides a wonderful place to just sit and relax. From your lanai, watch the surfers during the day and the sunsets at night. You'll also see jet boats, parasailing, and huge cruise ships. During the winter months. you may see whales passing by and it's not unusual to see schools of dolphins. Large turtles are permanent residents in the tide pool area and shoreline.

The Kona Reef is a low-rise oceanfront condo complex located close to the center of Kona. While away from the center of activity, it's an easy 2 block walk from the condo, along the waterfront to shopping and restaurants. Fresh produce, flowers, and macadamia nuts are available at the nearby farmers' market. The Kona Airport is about 7 miles away. Kahalu'u Beach Park, one of the best snorkeling areas in Hawaii, is just a few miles from the condo.

A large oceanfront pool, Jacuzzi, and chaise lounge area makes the Kona Reef a relaxing place to stay. Four gas-fired barbecues provide a great place to cook dinner, which you can eat at the tables and chairs in the barbecue area or take back to your private lanai.

Our condo is fully furnished and stocked with our guests in mind. The bedroom has a comfortable queen-sized bed, tropical furnishings, extra linens, plenty of storage, a TV, and a ceiling fan. The bathroom was recently renovated and has a glass block walk-in shower. We provide plenty of extra-large bath towels. The kitchen has a refrigerator with icemaker, an electric stove, dishwasher and microwave, plenty of cookware (for barbecue or stove), and dishware/silverware for 8. It also has a coffee grinder, a rice cooker, and a blender, as well as a toaster. You'll find most condiments as well as supplies such as paper towels, aluminum foil, etc. The living room has comfortable furnishings, including a 8' thick foam futon double-bed mattress. There's a large TV with VCR and DVD player. A cabinet contains an extensive collection of books, games, puzzles, movies, and DVDs. there's also a stereo with MP3 connector and CD player. Another cabinet contains coolers, beach chairs, beach towels, a boogie board, and other toys for water play. A sliding glass door covers the full width and height of one wall of the living room. And directly outside that door is the private lanai and the ocean.

Our guests have been delighted with the condo and we think you will be too.

About Jan Zobel

We bought this condo in 2004 after renting it from the previous owner for our Kona vacations for a number of years. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and try to come for long visits to our condo a couple of times a year. While there, we usually buy some new furnishings or make some other improvement in the condo as we want our guests to enjoy the space as much as we do. We remember what it was like to rent someone else's condo for our vacation and we try to make sure that all the little things (i.e. kitchen condiments, beach chairs, coolers, etc.) are available for our guests. We also never forget that a trip to Hawaii is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many of our guests and we want them to be thrilled with the condo they've selected.

Jan Zobel purchased this condo in 2004

Why Jan Zobel chose Kailua Kona

After visiting each of the Hawaiian Islands, we found that we enjoyed the Big Island the most. The variety of scenery throughout the Island is amazing and we still love to travel over to Hilo side or to the volcano or north to the beautiful beaches in the Waikaloa area. But we were especially drawn to Kona because of the sunny weather and all the ocean activities. We love to snorkel and swim and we've also done some kayaking in the area.

What makes this condo unique

Despite the many visits to our condo (including the times we stayed there before we bought it), we still are amazed when we arrive and open the living room shades and find the ocean right outside. We don't feel like we have to do much to have a true vacation at our condo; just relaxing on the lanai or by the pool is vacation enough. One of the reasons we wanted to buy at the Kona Reef is because it's so close to the activity of downtown Kona without being in the middle of the noise. As we're walking the 2-3 blocks downtown, we see the traffic and people having trouble parking and are so glad we don't have to drive and park, which most visitors to Kona have to do. Another thing we like about the Kona Reef is that we've found the other condo owners and the guests to be especially friendly so we enjoy the general atmosphere. And the condo association is constantly making improvements to the complex so we always feel that everything is being well-maintained.

Guestbook comments from the owner

this condo was all it was advertised and more. Watching the surfers from the lanai is an endless diversion. Great pool and BBQ facilities. Couldn't have been happier with our 9-day stay. Fine value and lots of fun.

Ocean Front Gem!

  • 5 of 5
Great location… just a couple blocks away from town so you could walk to dining / shopping within about 5 minutes. The complex grounds were well maintained, nice pool and lounge chairs. The unit was clean, recently updated, comfortable and had everything we needed including A/C and washer / dryer. We also used their beach chairs and umbrella's along with the snorkeling gear to walk to the sandy beach next door to the unit several days…. saw lots of fish and a few turtles too. We hope to get back to Kona next year and would absolutely stay here again…. it was lovely to sit and relax while watching the sunset every evening and then we'd head over the the BBG grills to make dinner. The sound of the ocean was so tranquil. Loved our time here!

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review.

It sounds like you took advantage of everything our oceanfront condo has to offer -- easy walk into town, barbecues, beach chairs and umbrellas, and most of all, the lanai with wonderful sunsets.

Please do be sure to come back soon!

Great Location

  • 5 of 5
We love staying at the Kona Reef and this condo did not disappoint. Well appointed with lots of little extras to make your vacation a great time. We always choose to be on the ocean and the sound of the waves, whales breaching, and beautiful sunsets are right there.

Absolute magic!

  • 5 of 5
We spent eight nights here with our 10-month old and it was total perfection. Jan (the owner) was a dream to work with - attentive, professional and seemed to genuinely care about our stay. And the condo itself was ideally located (an easy walk to "downtown"), immaculate, and outfitted with everything we needed. Loved all the labels! Made findings items very easy. We ate all of our meals (and spent most of our time) on the idyllic lanai - just can't beat that view! We hope to be back!!

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5
We just returned from a family wedding and all of our group stayed in different condos at Kona Reef....I think ours was perfect. We had everything we needed to check in, everything you could possibly need was stocked and it was very comfortable. The weather in Kona made the trip and wedding even more perfect. I hope to return again fairly soon! Mahalo!

Anniversary trip

  • 5 of 5
My husband and I had a wonderful time at this condo for our 4 year anniversary. The walk to town was perfect especially when we ate too much and needed to work some of it off on the walk back. This is the perfect location to town and the sound of the waves put us to sleep every night. The weather was perfect and we never needed the air conditioner. Working with Jan was a breeze. We can't wait for another anniversary trip to come back and visit. Will definitely come back to this condo when we're on the Big Island.

Outstanding!

  • 5 of 5
Wonderful Condo! Everything was perfect - and we could not have asked for anything more. It is an easy & safe walk to town, clean & quiet low rise complex, condo had all the comforts of home -- and then some!
The condo's description & photos are accurate. Very well stocked kitchen, and all linens are new & clean. We used the well maintained BBQ's a few times as well.
Favorite activity (besides relaxing on the lanai) was the Evening Manta Ray Snorkel w/Splashers (this is a Must-Do trip!!) and 4WD'ing to some local beaches. Walked to and ate at Humpy's, Lulu's and Bongo Bob's a number of times during our stay. Buns in the Sun was a good b'fast and lunch spot too, just had to hop in the car to get there.
Owner, Jan, was very helpful & we appreciate her opening her condo to us. We'd come back to D-3 without a second thought & would recommend it to anyone. We loved every minute.

No need to get in your car or find a place to park in 'downtown Kona'. The Kona Reef is just a 3 block walk along the waterfront into town. There you'll find restaurants, shops, bars, the Farmers Market, etc. This is one of the few Kona condo complexes that's within an easy walk to downtown but not in the middle of the activity there. There are monthly concerts and crafts fairs along Alii Drive and you can walk to all of them from the Kona Reef.
