About the property

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

You have just found your own personal, tropical hideaway … a spectacular, ocean-front designer condo literally just steps away from the crystal blue Pacific Ocean!

A look at the video tour will tell it all. The link to the video tour is located by clicking the screen or arrow to the left of the main picture above. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pictures!

This is elegant 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.

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

Beautiful location and beautiful view.

  • 4 of 5

Lovely decorated.

Great location, great view, exactly as shown on picture.

Well stocked kitchen and appliances

Pool and spa was great.

The fold out Lounge was missing some springs in the corner and we were not supplied anything other than one sheet for it. Went to reception who told us to look in the cupboard, which we had to find the one sheet that was there, so they then supplied another sheet, a tiny blanket and a pillow. There were two pillows in the closet which I thought were for the main bed as they had only 1 pillow and we always have 2 each. We used travel pillows.

The shower is tricky as it can wet more or the bathroom than expected.

All in all we had a lovely stay but those little details made a difference.

Nice unit.

  • 5 of 5

Great apartment, great resort. I like the east side of the big island better, but if I came back to the west, I'd stay here again!

The proximity to the little beach was what made this unit great.

Owner's Response: Thank you for giving your comments, and we are certainly glad that you would stay in this upgraded condo again if you return to the west side of the island. You would always be welcome to return, and we hope you do in the near future. Mahalo

Never judge a book by its cover

  • 5 of 5

Booking and dealing with the owners was simple and easy. They quickly responded to all our questions. The info provided was clear and helpful. When we first arrived the building and curb appeal was not impressive. Checking in was easy and staff were friendly. Walking to the condo we were concerned by the dark and dingy walkway BUT when you open the door to the condo it's like this hidden gem reveals itself. The unit is modern, like an upscale hotel suite. It has every amenity you could need. The view was amazing. The bed was insanely comfortable. Most of the guest amenities are located tucked in the center of the complex. Nice and private. The pool and hot tub were beautiful. There is a wonderful bbq area. Everything is very clean and well cared for. Be careful walking on the pool deck and getting into and out of the pool and hot tub all were unusually slippery. The unit had updated appliances. The coffee maker is a Mr. Coffee but filters and coffee (along with creamers) were provided. A small selection of spices, salt and pepper are provided if you are cooking in the unit. There are some stores nearby but I'd suggest a trip to the local Walmart which is about 15 min away to stock up on supplies. We stayed here at end of our Hawaiian vacation. Lots of nearby stores and restaurants, like most places on the Big Island most places close approx 9pm so not much night life. I recommend the King Kamehameha luau held at the Marriott. The sunset Manta Ray snorkel and the Kona Brewery all great things to do. The sunset from the lanai is breathtaking. The stay at this condo was wonderful and the owners easy to deal with. The deposit refunded quickly. We'd stay here again.

Just Like the Headline Says

  • 5 of 5

We have stayed at the Kona Reef many times in the past 15 years (almost always oceanfront), and like other reviews have stated, this is by far the best. But why? Was it the elegant, yet tropical décor? Not exactly. While we’ve sat in a lot of rattan, looking at loud paintings of fish over the years, some other units now have a classier look too.

Was it the magnificent view? Of course not: ALL the oceanfront units at the Kona Reef have a spectacular view –however, being on the ground floor AND positioned right in front of the lava-rock point that protrudes into the sea means you get to see a mesmerizing shore break from anywhere in the living room and kitchen (plus it’s an easy, 30-step walk to the pool –with no stairs or elevators).

No, we’d have to say it’s the layout/floor plan of this unit that makes it so special. There’s none other like this in the Kona Reef. There’s such a wonderful feeling of spaciousness, and coupled with the aforementioned view, it makes the whole unit seem like it’s an art gallery with one massive wall a framed, moving picture of the Pacific Ocean. And the bathroom is absolutely ingeniously reconfigured for the utmost room and maneuverability. The 'shower room' is inspired.

And finally, there’s the AC. Incomparable. We’ve never encountered any other unit there that has a forced-air system like this that evenly cools every square inch of the condo. I could go on, but you get the picture. The headline says it all and from now on we will stay in no other.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your detailed comments and insight as to what makes this the nicest condo at the Kona Reef. It is always refreshing that a guest notices the difference between a nice condo, and one that is magnificent. With over 100,000 invested in upgrades, those improvements make this condo magnificent, and lets it stand above and beyond any other. We look forward to your return in the near future. Mahalo

Peace and Aloha!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have been traveling to Hawaii since 1995. This was our first time on the Big Island and we were very pleased with the condo that we chose. In fact, we believe that it had the best view and location we have ever had! The view from our condo in the morning consisted of turtles and surfers. In the afternoon you could watch more surfers, snorkelers, and pleasure boaters. Parking was really easy. Plus, you could often leave your car in the parking garage and walk to the little town for dinner or shopping.

We stayed at condo A-5. It was lovely! The king size bed was very comfortable and the furniture was inviting and in good shape. The kitchen had everything we needed. We ate breakfast every morning on the lanai and I cooked dinner a few times. I was pleased with the pans and utensils provided. Everything worked just fine. Our only complaint was that when someone took a shower s/he had to be careful because the water would seep out to where the toilet was and that reulted in a wet inconvenience .

That inconvenience would not prevent us from returning to the same condo. In fact, if we return to the big Island I know that we would want to stay in the same place.
