IT DOESN'T GET ANY BETTER THAN THIS ; 'EXQUISITE OCEAN FRONT KONA CONDO'

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

The most awe inspiring view awaits you from our Ground Level - Newly Remodeled, Ocean Front (direct ocean access) Kona Reef Condo. 1 BR/1 BA (sleeps 2-4).

Only a few steps from and on the same level as the pool, outdoor barbeques, jacuzzi and the ocean itself. Because we are Ocean Front and Ocean Level - our view not only takes your breath away, but open the glass doors and a breeze (like only Ocean Level Can Do) will filter through the entire condo like a HUGE oversized-ocean powered fan. When you need it however, the air-conditioning is just a button push away on its own remote control. Walk out to convenient parking or choose to just walk. The heart of Kailua Kona is located within a 5 minute leisurely stroll.

IF by chance You're a surfer, LISTEN UP!

The Kona Reef complex is located right by the 'White Sands (a.k.a. Magic Sands or Lalao park)' . This small but rare, soft sandy piece of ocean front property is not too often found along the Kona coast and especially not near town. With the abundance of lush, lavish, lava rock - comes sharp and rough cut edges.

In other words, Large chunks of lava rock are not something you want to launch your board from or run it up onto either. But though the 'White Sands Beach Park' may be small, it offers up a mighty big swell....sure to keep you out there riding the waves all day. Watching the surfers is often my choice of morning entertainment as I look on from the Lanai and they're still out there to enjoy in the afternoon as well!

Speaking of our lanai; it has been completely remodeled with exquisite and comfortable furniture ; chairs with hide away pull-out foot stools that double as additional seating - dual rocking chairs for relaxing ocean side - two tables; One to dine and One to set your beverages on and a beautiful neutral print cozy outdoor carpet for your feet. Inside, new flooring, rugs, furniture, refrigerator, flat screen TVs, WIFI,cabinets, art work, ceiling fans, air conditioning, etc. are throughout. Coffee maker, blender, microwave, New refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, flat top stove and electric oven, dishes, pot, pans and all typical kitchen utensils.

The Bedroom has an extremely comfortable king size bed w/plenty of drawer space.

We have a Blow dryer under the bathroom sink for your convenience,as well as towels and a washer and dryer located in the hall closet.

EVERYTHING you'll need and more for a fabulous 'Resort Feel' stay!

Jerry and Candace Grasso have been married for 30 years and have two daughters ages 28 and 29 and soon will be grandparents for the very first time!

Jerry is a CFO and Senior Vice President of a Nationwide Company and Candace is the CEO and Founder/owner of 'Fit Is It' Inc. as well as a professional athlete, trainer and nutrition specialist. They reside in Baltimore Maryland and Kona Hawaii.

Candace Grasso purchased this condo in 2012

I came to Kona over a decade ago to bring my team to run the Kona marathon.

I asked my husband to come with me on my business trip as I had been sent to Hawaii many times on business but never to Kona. I had heard it was FABULOUS and we were told by a trusted friend we BOTH just HAD to go.

SO he accompanied me and after my team left, we stayed at Hualalai Four Seasons Resort and have been coming back to stay in Kona every single year since. At least once if not two or three times per year. We started immediately staying also in the village as well as the resort in order to enjoy the town of kona and also fell in love with the Kona Reef Complex. It's view, location, Pool amenities and units.

We vowed that if one day we ever found an Ocean Front for sale we'd put in an offer and just a few months ago God answered our prayers and now our Condo at the Kona Reef is no longer a dream but an answered prayer. We hope you enjoy and are as blessed by your stay as we have been!

Had a great Honeymoon -

  • 4 of 5
Thanks to Candace and team for making this such a delightful escape. The condo is exactly how it is described in the listing and the pictures do not do it justice. Take the picture that includes the table and chairs looking over the ocean; now imagine that for two, the breeze from the ocean (which is <50 feet away) and a private chef serving you a perfectly prepared meal with ingredients- organic and picked / caught that morning. REALLY!

The walk to town could not be easier; the center of the village is 10-15 minutes. Hugo's is just the right distance if you are feeling totally chill - MAYBE 5 min - with fish taco's backed by a Mai Tai. Good food and service without the pomp and circumstance then an easy walk back to the condo for private enjoyment of the sunset.

Candace provided very useful advice of what to do and where to go. That included steering us to the local gym to stay somewhat healthy while in full vacation mode. She also helped our family arrange for Muzzy to be our private chef. He and his's wife hospitality were one of the highlights of the trip. I better quit writing about this or I'll be booking a trip to go back next month!

The Perfect getaway.

  • 5 of 5
This was our fourth stay at the Kona Reef and by far the best. It is so relaxing and the view is spectacular. Every night watching the sunsets and the pounding surf makes one forget all the trials and tribulations of everyday life. Truly a paradise for anyone wanting to get away from daily grind of it all.

Great getaway!!!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I spent our 25th anniversary at this gorgeous ocean front condo. We would have our morning coffee watching the dolphins and the oceans beauty. We really didn't plan our days, we just decided on the fly. One of the best experiences we had, was the snorkeling we did at the public beach about 2 miles away. They had equipment to rent and they were very helpful. It was like being in a aquarium. Probably the best snorkeling experience ever. The owners of the condo were awesome. Candice gave us all the detailed info we needed and even checked up on us. One of the best deals in Kona!!!

We strongly recommend this condo for anyone visiting the big island. Not only is it ocean front, but it is very comfortable and trust me the manager and owner will go out of their way to do anything they can to help you enjoy your time! We had an absolutely fabulous visit - thank you for sharing your home :)

Vacation of a Lifetime!

  • 5 of 5
My wife and I were here for six weeks and boy are we sorry we had to go home. The VRBO description and pictures do not do justice to the condo and especially the view. We even had a friend join us for a week and the couch turned into a very nice bed. We did like the unit having a bathtub and not just a shower.

The unit is so convenient, very close to town. We walked to town for breakfast and dinner many times. Especially liked Humpy's for dinner and Bongo Bens's for breakfast. We did have a car and did a lot of touring, but if you just want to stay around Kailua you don't need a car.

The pool, hot tub and barbecue complex are very nice and not often crowded. You can also sunbathe right on the shore and watch the turtles and the tide pools every day. We had spinner dolphin and whales almost every day. Watching them from the Lanai was great. We spent many mornings with binoculars and coffee on the Lanai watching all the activities on the water. Can't forget the spectacular sunsets, we have many great photos to keep us company until we can return.

You will not be disappointed with this condo. We plan to return!!

Wonderful unit at Kona Reef

  • 5 of 5
Our first thought upon entering the unit was that it was better than the photos and description on VBRO. It was stunning, right on the ocean, beautiful sunset views, wonderful sound of the ocean. Walking distance into Kailua-Kona shops and restaurants so it was an ideal location. Quiet building and friendly fellow guests. Quick response to a minor maintenance issue (burned out light bulb). The owner was very friendly and helpful with ideas for activities and restaurants. Morning coffee on the lanai was magical. It was everything we hoped for and more. I would definitely book this unit again. It really made our stay on the Big Island wonderful.

There is NO BETTER location in all of Kona for a relaxing picturesque stay - than our magical, Ocean Front condo, located at the beautiful and upscale 'Kona Reef '. This is the only condo property located right in town. Our exquisite Ocean Front condo is located a mere 30 ft. from the 'Pounding Surf' ...offering what only Kona can; an absolutely polarizing view of the most vibrant color contrasts available ANYWHERE, at a single glance. The unexpected contrast of the stark, black lava rock is everywhere in Kona. You'll see it from the moment you touch down upon arrival along the runways of Kona's humble and most friendly airport, to the slabs of its presence.... that run along both sides of the main highway (if you can call it that). But it's most awe inspiring showing is its presence up and down the entire coast of Kona.

It's unexpected! it's unique and it takes a bit for your eyes to try and absorb all there is to see. First - you see the black sheen of the lava lining the edge of the water - then the myriad of blues that come with each crashing wave - to the BRIGHT green color of the statuesque palm trees that stand so majestically by. It's as if they are there to keep watch; standing guard if you will, so that the beauty will never be snatched away or stolen in the middle of the night. This is a scene you will see as you stroll into town and all the way through it. You are no more than a literal 5 minute walk from our front door - to the HEART OF KONA! In a nut shell, Kona is a small quaint little town. It reminds me of a 'Pacific Coast' Cape Cod.

Kona is full of restaurants, little shops and art galleries with local paintings of ocean life and sea turtles. In the heart of it all is my favorite place. A large (almost always open), farmers' market with the most amazing - fresh produce you have ever seen. Some of it in fact, you won't recognize.Don't be afraid to ask. The farmers that bring it in fresh each morning take great pride in their work and love not only to explain - but to offer up a taste of their goods with a smile and a great big aloha. I stop there first to fill up the fridge every time I come back to my Kona home.

Go snorkeling, diving, para-sailing, fishing, swimming, running , paddle boarding, surfing ....you name it and more or do NONE OF THE ABOVE and just chill by the ocean or the pool or in our case...you can do both at the same time. With our ocean front pool, there's no need to choose. Kona is what you want it to be. Your trip is truly what you want to make it. It's all there with a smile and the Aloha Spirit you may have heard about. Enjoy and A-L-O-H-A !!
