About Stephanie

We have been visiting Hawaii for over 43 years. Stephanie lived on the Big Island for several years during the 60s. We have owned and operated hospitality properties for 22 of those. We are responsive and responsible to our guests. We are very knowledgeable about what to do, where to eat, and out of the way places to hike, beach and explore.

Stephanie purchased this condo in 2003

Why Stephanie chose Kona Coast

Kona Reef Resort is THE oceanfront complex. It is just a short stroll to the downtown area. The oceanfront and adjacent beach offer many opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling , surfing, visiting tide pools, spotting turtles and watching sunsets. From the lanai, you can spot dolphins, whales in season, cruise ships, paddlers and surfers. If that doesn't keep you busy, nearby Kona Village has many restaurants, shops a popular farmers' market, and art galleries.

Great location and view

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nicely furnished, well stocked with pots and pans, and clean. The ocean view from the lanai was fantastic. Off-street parking was also a very nice feature in this popular locale. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. One problem: the washing machine was broken during our 5-day stay and there were no laundry facilities elsewhere in the resort. Would have given 5 stars if not for this. Be aware that bedroom can be noisy at night due to its proximity to exterior stairs and walkway, but earplugs alleviated that easily. Would stay there again.

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo is very nice, beautiful view from the lanai and close to restaurants and shops.

The pool area is nice too.

The condo is nice but we missed airo in the bedroom, it was hot. Also we found a stain n the bedsheet and the carpet in the bedroom was't very clean.

The kitchen looks good but we haven't used it at all.

Very Convenient Location

  • 5 of 5

The property is very conveniently located, especially for surfers - there is a surfing spot right in front of the property.

The most enjoyable was the ocean view.

The property is located a short walk distance from the downtown Kona.

I would definitely consider coming back again.

Great Place to Stay, Near Everything

  • 5 of 5

We stayed at Stephanie's place for 11 days and it was perfect. The place was very clean and cozy and was so close to the town of Kona, we walked everywhere unless it was a sightseeing day outside of Kona. Everything was easy to get to from the condo with our rental car. There is a Safeway just up the road to get groceries at. The condo has plenty of places to park. It does only sleeps 2 people but it was just my husband and I. Stephanie was always available to answer any questions. We had a few very minor issues when we arrived and Stephanie had someone out there to the condo with in 2 hours of our phone call. All was fixed up and perfect.

The condo is nice and quite. It has BBQ down by the pool if you want to cook out and you can hear and see the ocean from the pool or hot tub. You can hear the waves crashing at night with the lani doors open and watch them all day long on the lani. It was great getting up in the morning with a cup of Kona coffee and watching the waves. There is a little sandy beach just a 2 minute walk down the way past the pool. So we had our own little private beach or solitude in the condo.

In the morning we could watch the boats that take tourists out to see the dolphins and we could see the dolphins jumping out of the water. It was amazing. I would highly suggest bringing some binoculars so you can see better. If you can, do the dolphin and snorkeling tour, it's well worth it. We took the Ocean Adventures, and the guides were great and the price was reasonable.

The water was so clear and blue it was amazing. You could see the yellow tang (yellow triangle fish) as the waves swelled to a crest. We even saw a sea turtle right out our back door. We loved being able to walk to all the restaurants and shopping in Kona. We went in almost everyday and it was a very easy walk in flip flops. There is a short cut to town off the busy road if you walk past the house and the Royal Kona hotel to get to the little town. Stop and have a drink at the Royal Kona hotel bar and watch the sunset while having a mai tai.

We loved having breakfast at Bongo Bens which is one of the first restaurants you will see coming from the condo. We enjoyed eating at Bubba Gumps, they have fantastic food and really fun drinks. We walked the town of Kona I don't know how many times and still were not able to eat at every restaurant they had there. We would defiantly recommend the condo and will be coming back to stay.
