Enjoy all the deluxe amenities of this one-bedroom, oceanfront condominium located high up above the tides on the third floor… perfect for viewing the surf as the white waters roll ashore over the black lava creating a contrast that represents the beauty found on Big Island, an island of many contrasts. As one sits on our 3rd floor lanai it is high enough to be very private and at the same time it is the perfect place to look straight out and enjoy watching the shoreline.

About Grace 'Darline'

I love all the wacky fun things in Kona like the holiday parade with all sorts of trucks,police cars, jeeps, you name it… if it has wheels…it is decorated and the owners and friends wave and wish you well as they drive down our one street by the ocean . It is all Kona… it is all fun. Of course, these fun parades down the street of kona Village include marching bands and kids and dogs and who and whatever…it is all kona. Candy is past out and thrown out to the groves of people who come to cheer everyone on…it is a Kona night… fun for all.Parades don’t just happen in December they occur through out the year for just about any reason…it is Kona-Kona style:)

Of course there is the world famous Ironman in October where most everyone cheers on the runners till midnight…that is the one big night when most everyone wants to be at the finish line at midnight for the big celebration of the last runner in to the village and across the finish line…

it is an emotional fun filled moment. There is no place like Kona. It is what makes Kona …Kona! It is what I love!

Grace 'Darline' purchased this condo in 1996

Why Grace 'Darline' chose Kailua Kona

This condo is as close as possible to the ocean rolling ashore...Like... it is right there in front of us as we listen to the waves rolling over the lava. In the background, I hear the birds singing their beautiful songs.

This is paradise on earth!

What makes this condo unique

It is Kona on the Big Island... An Island with all its own mysteries and mystical energies! There is nothing like Kona!The benefits are for you to discover:)! The aloha is for you to take home and life is just better having been in Kona...the differences, like the benefits, are for you to discover!:)

Perfect- could not be nicer!!!!

  • 5 of 5

Beautiful - everything you need is right here. Unbelievable views from the condo lanai. Saw dolphins from the lanai table while having breakfast, cruise ships parked 1/2 mile away in the bay. Sunsets that will blow you away!! Condo well stocked and nice gear to take with you to the beach, chairs, coolers, umbrella for shade (highly recommend using it, a life saver for us folks not used to a lot of sun!). This was our first trip to Hawaii and we did not know what to expect with a new experience of booking through VRBO but we could not have been happier. We read some previous reviews and they were pretty positive so we will add ours to them. The owner did everything she could to make our trip as easy for us as she could. We arrived quite a bit earlier than our original plan and she went above and beyond to get us into the condo early so we could get the food we bought into the refrigerator while the cleaning staff was still there working to prepare the unit for our stay. Much Mahalo for that!!! Great location! Walking distance to the village for shopping and we also walked to Royal Kona Resort for their luau. All in all we would highly recommend this condo for a vacation in Kona!!! Would give a 6 star review if I could!!!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write your wonderful and kind review! Hearing that you found everything you needed in the condo was a BINGO... that is exactly our goal...to have you arrive and just be able to feel at home! Sipping coffee on the lanai and watching dolphins is all a dream come true for all of us and I am so over the moon excited that you were able to see the dolphins from the lanai!!! Hearing how you appreciate watching the most magnificent Kona sunsets is frosting on the cake! We love it! Having our guests appreciate the sunsets is a dream come true. Kona sunsets are out of this world like many things in Kona. So much in Kona is just beautiful Kona...a paradise in itself and our treat to experience! Having you both to our condo on your first trip to Hawaii just was a very very special gift to us and we look forward to your return! It is a mutual admiration society for you were certainly 6+ star guests just so full of enthusiasm and joy. It is my goal and passion to make your trip as special as possible so getting you in early was as much my happiness as it was yours:)! Mahalo for choosing our oceanfront condo as your first trip to Hawaii!!!:) Lots of aloha to the both of you, Darline:)

Everything is top of the line including the view. The kitchen supplies and equipment are excellent, including the Mocamaster for making coffee, the toaster for bagels and the blender. We found the bed and pillows very comfortable. Coolers, bags, several beach towels and beach equipment are all provided. The home is immaculate. The carpets and tile are very clean. The owners go over and above to make your stay as wonderful as possible and make you feel like a welcome guest.

You will not be disappointed!!

  • 5 of 5

I would recommend this property to anyone who is interested in a clean, comfortable condo, the location is beyond perfect. We had everything we needed right there, coolers, beach chairs and nice big fluffy beach towels. The property is beautifully kept and located near anything you could ever need, fine dining, casual dining, shopping and live entertainment. The pool area is perfect, BBQ's and comfortable lounge chairs-the best part was sitting by the pool and the ocean at the same time!! Heaven on Earth!! The view from the lanai is breathtaking, we spotted spinner dolphins right off shore and if you look closely you can see yellow tangs in the surf right below the balcony. My husband and I walked to dinner every night, highly recommend Splashers, Huggo's and Huggo's on the Rocks and a must is breakfast at Lava Java!! If you enjoy swimming with turtles and just about any kind of tropical fish you could ever hope to see, you will love the nearby beaches-Two Step was one of our favorites!! We have rented several properties through VRBO and I would rate Darline as the best; she is responsive and timely, she is personable and a pleasure to work with. I can't say enough about this beautiful property-We will be going back for sure!!!

Everything you need to make your stay on Kona the best ever!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I love the big island and travel their at least once a year. Kona Reef condos is our favorite place to stay. We have stayed in many of the condos there and this unit was our favorite! The attention to detail, the view, the complete kitchen, lots of beach equipment, great books to read, and the best thing of all for us - the blender! It makes the perfect pina colada!

Owner's Response: Wow, it sounds like you had an awesome and fun time in Kona! It is music to my ears to hear how you appreciated our attention to detail! It is true our goal is to provide our guests with an amazing experience while in Kona! I could tell, by your review, that you know how to have a good time! :) You made the Pina Colada sound so good that I have put that down as a must do on my next trip to Kona. Of course, the perfect place for sipping the drink...on the lanai enjoying the oceanfront with the waves rolling ashore over the lava rocks as the palm trees sway and the birds fly from palm tree to palm tree. I could feel your love for Kona as I read your review! Mahalo and lots of aloha for taking the time to share your thoughts! We look forward to your return to paradise!

A great base for adventure

  • 5 of 5

I have been to Kona a few times, and stayed in 4 of the Kona Reefs condos. This has been the best condo out of them. Prior to getting to the condo, the owner had sent a power point presentation on the items in the condo, and where they were. We walked right in after taking off our shoes, and knew how things operated, and where things were. I had even asked the owner if there was a portable fan (I like white noise to sleep). Before we arrived, she had a portable fan waiting. It was like a home away from home….with a better view.

The complex is quiet, comfortable, and in a great location. We hit Costco then the farmer’s market when we got to Kona. Having a fully stocked kitchen (just bring your spices), and BBQ grills really helps save money from eating out all the time. Plus the view from the pool/grill area at sunset, and eating our meals on the lanai are amazing.

We booked the condo 3 months ahead of time. The owner kept in contact with us during that time, reminding us of the great time we have ahead of us. During our vacation, the owner would check in on us to see if we needed anything. True service that I hadn’t expected.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to write your review and pointing out how the trip begins with the reservation. The excitement, the joy of just knowing a trip to Kona has begun ... whether the date is next month or next year... creates an anticipation of an awesome trip to paradise! This excitement and knowing the trip is on the calendar is all apart of the trip and the fun. It is like a treat we have given to ourselves! I am so glad you were able to make use of the wonderful BBQ area. That is our hope for our guests and why we supply lots of BBQ tools. The BBQ area is such a fun place and I was so happy to hear how you enjoyed the view from the BBQ area as well as the view while dining from our oceanfront condo! Good point about spices... I knew you wanted spices for the BBQ... that is why I sent out the "Spicy Story" ,as I do for all of our guests warning our guests that many people take home their spices in a baggie... in the check-in bags. So best to bring spices in a baggie in the check-in bag or plan to buy the spices. I guess every place has its story... ours is the "Spicy Story":)! Yes, our mission statement and our passion is to provide our guests with a true experience of "Aloha"! Our guests are our 'Ohana (family)! We truly want each and every guest to feel cared for and to receive the highest level of service possible because we want our guests stay in our condo to be an experience of true "Aloha"...caring and service at its highest level. Our guests have planned this trip ...anticipated this trip and we want our guests to have an amazing trip that meets their needs, expectations and dreams! We are over the moon happy that you enjoyed your experience in our condo and we look forward to your return. :) Again mahalo for choosing our condo and taking the time to write your review !:)

GREAT LOCATION! GREAT VIEW! GREAT OWNER!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was perfect - just as described on the website! Very short walking distance to nearby shops and restaurants - our favorite being Da Poke Shack. It was very clean and the surrounding property was clean as well. We absolutely loved leaving the door open to the lanai and hearing the ocean. We never once turned on the AC - the breeze was enough! The condo was well equipped in every room! We were out on many adventures so we didn't get to cook but from the looks of it, the kitchen had everything you needed! We made great use of the cooler, beach towels, beach chairs, ice that was supplied. Darline was very easy to reach simply by email or text and responded very quickly. We rented a 4WD Jeep that we used for our adventures, esp driving up Mauna Kea Summit (over 13,000+ ft) and exploring down the Waipio Valley. We visited numerous beaches and parks along every shore - about 1-3 beaches a day! We also visited Mountain Thunder Coffee Farm, Hawaii National Volcano Park, Black Sand Beach, Mauna Loa Nut factory, Kona Brewing Company (which we visited several times), Waikoloa Beach, snorkeling south of the condo (numerous places), etc. to name a few. There was so much to do on the island we ran out of time. We will definitely be back and definitely stay here again. You will spend hours on the lanai just watching the ocean and everythng out there (surfers, dolphins, waves, boats, etc). It is absolutely beautiful here. At times, you feel as if the waves are about to crash through the doors it's so close! We loved it here! So convenient and Darline was such a pleasure to work with. Thank you again for everything! Mahalo and Aloha!

Owner's Response: Mahalo for your thorough and awesome review of your trip to Kona...You made me excited to go back to Kona!:) As you said, it is extra special and such a feeling of paradise to have the sliding door open all the way and just let the breeze and the sounds of the ocean rolling ashore come right into the condo. It is rather like a movie scene and yet it is ours to enjoy! I was so happy to hear how much you enjoyed sitting on the lanai watching all the activities...it is amazing what we can see. With the surfers up and down and gliding in with the waves...it is all so "ole Hawaii...a time to relax and enjoy! It was so awesome that you were able to go to the "Da Poke Sack"...when one goes to Yelp and enters .. no location ...just top 100 restaurants in United States ..low and behold "Number One" is DA POKE SHACK just down from the condo on our single lane road on the Big Island in Kona! Who would ever guess such a hidden treasure would be here but like so many things in Kona there are a multitude of treasures to be discovered. The Big Island does have so many surprises and activities... I am looking forward to going to the places you mentioned especially those coffee places. You taught me so much. There is always more to learn and see on the Big Island and our guests are our teachers. All of this in 5 nights:)...you two were amazing and live with such passion and enthusiasm...we so look forward to your return and mahalo for letting us all know that time is not a limit and by living in the moment we can all do and be so much...for life is ours to enjoy... Mahalo with lots of aloha:)
