INCREDIBLE OCEANFRONT! 2 BLOCKS TO TOWN. FULL KITCHEN, KING BED, FREE WIFI, A/C

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

1 Bedroom condo 30 feet from the ocean. Sleeps 4. Free WiFi, A/C, full kitchen.

Condo D-24 at the Kona Reef is an absolutely oceanfront, 3rd floor, fully furnished, non-smoking, one bedroom condo with a complete kitchen. The lanai (balcony) 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.)

We've recently bought this condo so please don't be put off by the fact that there aren't so many guest reviews. We've owned Kona Reef D-3 (on the first floor) for many years (VRBO 308090) and you can read our guest reviews of that condo.

We encourage you to carefully read reviews of condos you are considering renting and also to look at the supplied pictures. Although the Kona Reef is an oceanfront complex (the pool area and some of the buildings are next to the ocean), only condos in the 'A' and 'D' buildings are truly oceanfront (30 unobstructed feet from the ocean with dead-on views of the water.) You'll find that the nightly rate being charged often reflects how close the condo is to the ocean and how recently it's been renovated.

D-24 is a recently renovated and fully furnished condo that 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 brand new king-size bed, tropical furnishings, plenty of storage, and a TV. The newly remodeled kitchen has granite counter tops, a refrigerator with icemaker, a new 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. The living room has comfortable furnishings, including a brand new queen sofa/sleeper. There's a TV with DVD player. A cabinet contains an extensive collection of books, puzzles, and DVDs. You'll also find coolers, 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 balcony and the ocean.

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

NOTE: If our D-24 condo isn't available for your desired dates or if you'd prefer a first floor condo, please go to VRBO 308090 for information about our Kona Reef D-3 condo.

We bought this condo a couple of years ago after owning another condo (D-3) at the Kona Reef for many 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. 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 purchased this condo in 2011

We bought this condo a couple of years ago after owning another condo (D-3) at the Kona Reef for many years. We were getting requests for reservations that we couldn't accommodate in D-3 because it was already booked. Now that we have D-24, we are able to accommodate more guests, particularly during the busy times.

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.

Despite the many visits to our condos at the Kona Reef, we still are amazed when we arrive and open the living room drapes 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 car 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.

Great location - very nice accommodations - professional dealings with owner

This unit in the Kona Reef complex is a very nice condo. Clean, bright, all the comforts of home (plenty of cooking utensils, dishes, silverware, glasses, etc), large comfortable bed, updated kitchen (and everything works!), plenty of nice towels, beach gear (snorkel equipment, boogie boards) and even a well cataloged activities file with suggestions and hits on what to see and do. Dealing with this owner was a pleasure...very professional. The Kona Reef is a very well maintained complex. Very clean. The pool and barbecue areas are always clean and nice. This location is really great...an easy walk to shops and restaurants. Plenty of easy parking at the complex too. I have stayed at other units at the Kona Reef....and this is the nicest yet...by far. Thanks Jan for your hospitality. I hope your condo is available on my next visit!

Beautiful Condo, Incredible View, Peaceful and Quiet

Thank you, Jan, for sharing your condo with us! It is beautifully remodeled and, of course, the best thing is the ocean view! My husband and I were amazed at how peaceful it was in your condo. Of course, the wave noise was not quiet but we LOVED it - very calming and soothing! We would love to come back to your condo! You were amazing to deal with and made all the preliminary business easy. Again, THANK YOU!

KONA REEF, UNIT D-24

  • Submitted: Aug 31, 2013
  • Stayed: Aug 2013
Jan's condo has everything you can possibly need and the view from the lanai is amazing. Apart from the view, we chose Jan's unit because of its proximity to the city- walking distance to everything - and because it has a full kitchen inside -so we were able to buy fresh food and fish from the local SMarkets/ producers and cook it either inside the unit or the BBQs in the common area. We never had any issues during our 2 week stay and the staff who manage the property are very helpful. Kona is beautiful and we had an excellent time! Jan will go above and beyond to make sure that you have everything you need during your stay.
Looking forward to go again in the future!

awesome view, lovely aspect, quiet neighbours, walk to town

We saw turtles and dolphins from the lanai, which was nice. Lots of personal, thoughtful touches that made our stay more pleasant - an abundance of cooking equipment, easy to use oven, heaps of storage in the bedroom, starter pack of washing powder, outdoor folding chairs for picnics on the beach, snorkels - wow it was awesome! Our bed was so comfortable and we fell asleep listening to the waves breaking. The neighbours were quiet. It was an easy walk to Kona were there are plenty of bars and restaurants with fantastic views of the ocean. The walk to a supermarket is a hard one up a hill - so perhaps get the bus or hire a car.

There is a small beach park just steps away (strong swimmers only); tide pooling in front of the condo; just a few blocks ocean front walk to 'downtown' Kona and its many shops and resturants (including a farmers market); just a couple of miles from Kahulu'u Park, a premier snorkling area. Tennis available on the courts at the hotel next door.The Kona Reef is one of the few Kona condo complexes that's an easy walk to downtown but not in the middle of the activity there.
