About Helen

Aloha,

My husband and I live in Southern California and we love to travel, bicycle and dance. We are both Retired and I am a Fused Glass artist. We love spending time in Kona just to relax. It's so nice to sit on the lanai and enjoy your morning coffee (New Kuerig coffeemaker and numerous K-cups provided and also regular coffeemaker available). We also love having evening glass of wine on the lanai while whating the spectacular sunsets. We hope you'll enjoy our home-away-from-home as much as we do.

Helen purchased this condo in 2002

Why Helen chose Kailua Kona

The first time we visited Kona we fell in love with its small town, authentic Hawaiian feel. There is so much to see and do on the Big Island.

What makes this condo unique

The Kona Reef is the only condo property right in town. You can walk to countless restaurants, shops and nightlife or just stoll through town in the evening for exercise and to take in the sights, sounds and music.

However, if you want piece and quiet, on our oceanfront lanai all you hear is the surf and the sunsets are fantastic. (from many of the units at the Reef -B Building and parts of C, E and F Buildings -you have go down to the beach or pool to see the sunset). We also have WiFi so you can surf the web while you watch the surf. There's never a dull moment with surfers and boogieboarders to watch, parasailers, cruise ships, turtles and fish.

Also, the moon reflecting on the water at night is mesmerizing.

We are only a phone call away if you have any questions. (You have unlimited long-distance calling to US and Canada from our unit).

Also, the Kona Reef has a very nice Oceanfront Pool and BQ area with 4 large gas grills and numerous tables. There's also lots of covered parking and a great spirt of Aloha throughout the property.

Large Private Lanai

  • 5 of 5

We spend a week at this condo. It was clean and had everything we needed. We booked 8 scuba dives with Jack's dive locker down the street. We also had great fish and chips at Bongo Ben's and Humpy's which is just a very short walk from the condo. I would love to stay there again. Thanks Helen and Ray.

Outstanding vacation

  • 5 of 5

We spent an almost perfect week at Helen and Ray's condo in Kona Reef. The unit was spotless when we arrived, and it was very thoughtfully equipped. The owners clearly tried to anticipate just about everything a guest could need, and it was all there. The Kona Reef complex was very well maintained - pool area, barbecue area, walkways, and parking areas. The location was just about perfect - an easy walk to the Kailua-Kona "strip" while the lanai seemed like it was on our own private island. The unit is right on the water but the bedroom is in the back, so the ocean sounds were muted enough to be relaxing. The unit has a fantastic Blendtec blender, and the farmers market had plenty of fresh fruit so we took full advantage. During our week there we watched whales, dolphins, and turtles from the lanai while sipping our breakfast coffee and smoothies. We will definitely be back.

Very convenient to the activity in the Kona-Kailua area.

  • 5 of 5

This was the first stop in Hawaii this year. My wife and I had not been on the Big Island for 3 years and each time we stayed north of Kona near the Waikaloa area. However, due to the size of the Big Island we always dreaded the drive to and from Hilo for a day trip because it made for a very long day and almost assuredly a night-time drive back to Kona. This year we spent a week in the Kona area and then a week near Hilo and never had to make the round trip in 2 weeks. This condo was located very close to the downtown Kona area making it very easy to make the moderate walk from the condo in to town for shopping, restaurants, or just wandering around the markets. The unit was on the small side, but it was equipped with everything that you needed to have a great stay in Kona. Plus it is one of the few units in the complex that is directly ocean front with the waves crashing into the lava rocks just outside the lanai. If you like to hear the ocean then this is the place for you. We sat on the lanai every morning to have our breakfast and just listen to the waves and watch the ocean. Our hosts recommended a night time snorkel to see the manta rays feeding on plankton and that was a wonderful experience. We used Sunlight on the Water at the Kailua-Kona marina and it was unforgettable plus they posted photos of our dive within a week. We also walked to Laverne's sports bar one Sunday morning so that we could watch our team (the Indianapolis Colts) play a Sunday afternoon game. The bar had many flat screen TVs and great breakfast meals. The bar was full of people rooting for just about every team in the NFL and we had a great time. On our last day we walked from the condo down to Hugo's at 5 pm and got a seat on the rail/water where we had a wonderful meal of fresh fish and watched a beautiful sunset. We will definitely consider this unit again the next time we stay in Kona.

Relaxing and Comfortable

  • 5 of 5

We spent 5 nights of our honeymoon here and had a wonderful time. Unfortunately, we suffered a tragic loss of our pup a couple days before we came to Kona and Helen was so sweet and accommodating. We were so glad we had our time here, it was rejuvenating and just so comfortable. Of the 3 places we stayed on our honeymoon, this was (by far) the best equipped - it felt like your own home away from home - I loved sitting on the patio every morning with a cup of coffee and a book. We BBQ'd a couple of nights at the pool and finished each night in the hot tub/pool. We walked in to town a couple of days for breakfast or dinner and walked to Jake's Diving Locker for night manta ray snorkeling (HIGHLY recommend). We will definitely be back with my parents on another trip!!!

Wonderful!!!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed at Kona Reef before, but this condo is wonderful. What makes it wonderful? The owner Helen! We were greeted with local chocolate and stocked with coffee! The king sizes bed gave a very restful sleep! She called to make sure we got into the condo ok and checked to see if we needed anything. Condo kitchen is well stocked, we lacked nothing. We like to grill and Kona Reef has a wonderful grill area where you can sit around the pool and watch the sunset while grilling up local ahi. Walk to the farmers market for all your fruit and veggie needs; so fresh. The hot tub is terrific after a day of hiking the volcanos. Thanks for a wonderful stay!

Exactly as Advertised--Wonderful Getaway

  • 5 of 5

The unit was a perfect location to base our trip to the Big Island. The bed is comfortable, the condo is immaculate and very well-appointed. The lanai is private and the view is exactly as pictured. Having a washer/dryer in the unit was great. The wi-fi worked perfectly and made it easy to plan our days. The walk into town is an easy 10 minutes, but the location is quiet and private. Helen was very helpful right from the start--the directions and the logistics of getting into the condo were clear and complete. We arrived right after Hurricane Iselle, and while the Kona side of the island turned out to be relatively unaffected, Helen was gracious and helpful in confirming things would be fine when we arrived. We hope we will be able to return soon!
