Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

You have just found your own personal, tropical hideaway …literally just steps away from the crystal blue Pacific Ocean!

This spectacular, ocean-front designer 1BR unit in the Kona Reef Resort was completely remodeled in 2007, and extensively refreshed in 2011 with new paint, new carpet, new appliances and furniture.

A look at the video tour will tell it all. The link to the video tour is located below the map and above the photos where 'Link to our other rentals' and 'Link to 360 video tour' appears. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pictures!

This is lavish tropical living at its best, with a king-size bed (and premium mattress), slate floors, granite countertops, gourmet kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, central air conditioning, Travertine bath with a raised vessel sink, and tropical touches throughout.

The convenient, ground floor location means you have paradise at your feet: Merely stroll 20 yards out from the lanai (patio) and you’re standing in the ocean, with a picturesque white sand beach cove just a few more feet down to your left. Or go 30 feet out the front door to the pool. No winding staircases or out-of-the-way elevators.

As you would expect in a condo this luxurious, it is fully equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay: A fully equipped kitchen, with a full array of utensils, including BBQ accessories. A washer and dryer right in the unit makes sure you feel right at home. We expect you to return often, as most of our guests do. The Kona Reef is the most convenient location in Kona, and this is the ultimate unit at the Kona Reef.

So sit back and enjoy spectacular sunsets as daredevil surfers and playful dolphins dodge sea turtles right in front of you,... as all of you keep a keen lookout for humpback whales when they are in town.

And then ask yourself: after traveling thousands of miles to get here, was it worth a few extra dollars per night to spend your time in a place just as beautiful as the paradise that surrounds it? Of course it was, but we are actually priced lower than many other units, which shows that sometimes the best actually costs less.

Since we have multiple units, we are most likely able to fill your needs and the dates that you need. If the dates you want are not available, then click the 'View Our Other Rentals Listings' below the map, or visit our website for the availability of other units. We are likely to have the dates available that you need. Our availability calendar is always up to date, and you can use the 'Book It Now' option to confirm your dates without delay.

Call us at 888-269-3229, or Email us with any of your questions and we will be happy to give you a prompt response. We look forward to having you stay with us, and your return. Hawaii registration #W-01269720-01

Steps to the ocean and town. Yet also sequestered and quiet. It is an oceanfront hideaway.

I loved it loved it loved it

  • 5 of 5

Wow! What a great time we had. We were celebrating 35 years of marriage and this was definitely the place to do it. I absolutely loved the accommodations, the location, everything about the place was satisfying. Just beautiful and I slept great! Sitting on the patio, reading, listening to the ocean. It just doesn't get any better. I cannot say enough about the place. I do plan to return to Kona and I hope this condo is available when I do. Thanks Ken and Dia! It was wonderful!

Mahalo, Kirk

My husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon. When we first checked in, the management company saw that we were staying in A5 and their response was "You have the most beautiful condo at Kona Reef!"- and they were right. The pictures don't do it justice. You can tell that there was a lot of attention to detail and effort put into making this place special. The location also doesn't hurt. The lanai is feet from the ocean, and the condo just a short walk into the heart of Kona. We were there over the 4th of July and got to watch the fireworks over Kailua Bay right from our lanai with a glass of wine in hand- perfect!. Great sunset views as well.

We only had one hiccup while we were there when the A/C unit gave out in the middle of the night. We let the management company know first thing the next morning and they came right out and had it fixed ASAP. We were impressed with their efforts to take care of the problem quickly.

We will definitely stay here again when we are able to come back and have already recommended this specific condo to many people! Thank you for having us!

We will certainly look forward to your return in the near future. Mahalo

  • 5 of 5

The property was perfect in every way. Beautifully and comfortably decorated with all the necessary appointments and utensils. Good amenities, clean and good management. Quiet with a surf ocean view. A really relaxing vacation - and we live in Hawaii!!! That says it all.

We are always pleased when a guest appreciates the time and expense that was devoted to make this unit the absolute nicest at the Kona Reef. We do attempt to provide everything that could be needed for a comfortable stay, and always look forward to a guest returning, as most do. The Kona Reef is conveniently located just a block and a half from town and is a top choice for a "home away from home" when visiting Kona. Mahalo

Beautifully Designed Oceanfront Condo

  • 5 of 5

This is a beautifully appointed condo with oceanfront living! It looks of a professionally designed space with contemporary needs, is appropriately themed and very comfortable. The location of the property is great as it is walking distance to shoppin, restaurants and activities - AND there is plenty of covered parking - great for keeping your car out of the sun. Be sure to watch the sunsets from the lanai! The owners are wonderful, very thoughtful and super responsive about our questions - it was our first time using VRBO. The unit information was perfect and property check-in was a breeze. We loved the unit so much that we cared for it as if it was our own so that it remains in great shape for others to enjoy - we definitely would want to come back to this unit again and again!

Tranquility on the Ocean

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I spent 7 nights in A5. For the most part, this is a fantastic place to vacation. It is situated right on the Ocean, waves crashing. Don't be fooled, the ocean is to be respected. It is tempting to go right in the water; however, this can be very dangerous on the black lava rock. Do not swim right out there. We went out there and my husband ended up in the Urgent Care with a laceration (filet) on his foot. We spent a lot of time in the condo for 3 days. So with that being said, the Wi Fi is good. The television and blu ray work really well. The pool area is fantastic. We were able to spend some time in the down town area and enjoy the shopping. By the end we were able to snorkel (by boat- Fair Winds) and really did end up enjoying our stay. It is very comfortable. Here is the only complaint: The shower has warm water for one person.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to post your comments. We are glad you enjoyed the amenities, and will have the maintenance staff check the water heater, since it is the first time that has ever been mentioned. We will look forward to your return in the near future, to the absolute nicest unit at the Kona Reef. Mahalo
