Guestbook comments from the manager

Thanks for the use of your condo. The view could not have been better, and the condo itself was clean and well equipped. The bed was one of the most comfortable I have ever slept on. You can bet we will return again as soon as the next opportunity comes up. Thanks for such a wonderful place to stay.

Used and Tired. Very disappointed.

  • 2 of 5

We have stayed at the Kona Reef on approximately 5 occasions in the last 20 years or so. We like the complex location for our activities. We were excited to have an ocean front property this year. Our excitement dropped to extreme disappointment as soon as we walked into the unit. This was the by far the most seedy and tired unit we have rented. We have been visiting Kona over 30 years and have stayed at various complexes/properties. For this reason we do have some perspective on this review. Please read below:

1) The unit was cluttered with cheap furnishings which were "tired" and "used." For being so small, it had way too much clutter in it for being able to move around. Some of the furniture was dirty and we did not want to sit on it. Instead the office manager supplied us with beach towels to cover it up so we did not have to look at the dirt and stains.

2) We spent our first 2 hours washing the silverware and dishes that were put away dirty. There was food build-up on the plates and the silverware. It took us a while to make the place livable and clean. We do at the least expect a unit to be clean which it was not. We were disappointed the entire stay but of course made the best of things.

3) The pull out bed in the living room was in an unacceptable condition. It was covered with a torn and dirty foam pad that we had to remove. The bedding supplied for the pull out bed was for a king sized bed and not a double bed. This bedding was stained, worn out and ugly. The bed itself was a sagging disappointment.

4) The carpeting was frayed and dirty throughout.

5) The lanai was cluttered as well and the bar stools supplied were not tall enough for the table.

6) The towels supplied for the bathroom should have been replaced a long time ago. They had gone through too many guests at this point and were stained and frayed.

Luckily we had the beautiful ocean in front of us and you cannot detract from that. We did leave our complaints with the manager. I recommend a face-lift for this unit. We were sorry it was not in much better condition and more like the photos you have supplied to advertise it. Please let us know if this unit is given back some new life....it could use it.

Great place near Kona!

  • 5 of 5

Our first trip to Kona and this condo. We loved staying here! The balcony overlooking the ocean was the best part. We ate all our meals on the deck and spent lots of time enjoying the sunsets!

The condo is a little smaller than we expected, but worked fine for the 2 of us. The building is a bit older, but in good shape, and lots of nice upgrades to this condo. It was especially nice to have AC in the bedroom! This was needed - even in September! The pool was nice and the BBQ area worked well. Friendly people checking us in - with lots of good recommendations about where to eat and what to see on the island. It was nice to be able to walk to town for dinner (be sure to take the back road, not the main highway) If we come back to Kona, we would definitely stay here again.

Owner's Response: Thanks for taking the time to give your comments. We agree that having AC in the bedroom as well as living room is a nice feature, and this is one of very few units that has AC throughout. Most others just have a wall unit in the living room. The convenience of being just over a block to town is nice, too. You do not have to drive every time you want to go to town. We always do our best to provide an above average accommodation that is fully equipped with everything needed for a comfortable stay. We are glad you enjoyed your stay, and look forward to having you return in the near future. Mahalo

Perfect location for a stay in Kona

  • 5 of 5

The location was perfect for a week in Kona. Very easy walk into town to all the restaurants and shops. The condo was right on the ocean so we saw beautiful sunsets every night from our lanai. We even saw some whales one morning. The condo was very well stocked with any activity you could want - board games to boogie boards. All in all, a wonderful week. Many thanks.

Owner's Response: Mahalo for taking the time to give your feedback, and we are glad you enjoyed your stay. The view, and the close proximity to town are certainly good features, and the upgrades make this one of the nicer units at the Kona Reef. We look forward to your return in the near future. Aloha

Great view & location, but that's it!

  • 2 of 5

The location of this property is premium, you can't change that, it's awesome. The condition was so, so...When we arrived at our pre-arranged time (4:00 PM), the room was still in the process of being cleaned, so there we were standing out in the hallway for 15 minutes while that was being finished. On leaving the cleaning person was obviously "not pleased" that she was being hurried. What happened to all of the "Aloha" all of a sudden? The interior really needed some TLC, the carpet was pulled up from the "transition" to the tile in more than one place, an easy fix in most homes. On inspection, the kitchen had lots of pots and pans, etc; but absolutely NO condiments, oil, flour, spices, seasonings, tin foil, plastic wrap, etc; just stuff that people who stay in condo's when travelling come to expect. NO dish soap in the kitchen. Stuff that the previous renters leave behind and don’t take home. Oh, there was a picnic salt and pepper, and that was it period...One roll of TP, in the bathroom, that's it, for there.

Also the washer & dryer are MUCH worse than the new ones in the pictures. The present ones barely function. Why would you downgrade your washer & dryer??? Very disingenuous in my opinion. You can tell this place gets lots of use, it's a great location, it just needs someone to bring it back to premium condition on the inside. The ad states that this condo is "Upgraded", really all that is upgraded is nice countertops in the kitchen. Everything else, cabinets, fixtures, carpets etc; are old and tired. Maybe it needs to be "UPGRADED" again....In the bedroom, for two people is one little 3-drawered cabinet for your clothes, really? Buck up and buy a decent size piece of furniture for god's sake. They aren't that much money.

The available room on the lanai has been compromised by about 25% by the addition of the new air conditioning unit. That picture is also misleading; it needs to be replaced by a true rendition of the current lanai area. If 4 people or even 3 people are at the table on the lanai, one or both people have to sit directly in front of the air conditioning unit and has to climb under the table to be seated.

So, to finish, GREAT location but the inside does not match the outside by any comparison...I have been coming to this area for over 30 years, having stayed exclusively in condo's, have even stayed in other condo's in this complex, but, this one was NO bargain for the price, there are other oceanfront units, way nicer, for less mon

Owner's Response: Good grief! It seems as though waiting 15 minutes for the cleaning staff to finish preparing the unit set off an unwarranted bad review. All other reviews are 4 or 5 stars. It is understandable that a guest would love immediate access and a 15 minute wait while cleaners complete their work is annoying, but a reasonable person would not use that to slam a gorgeous unit that all others rate highly. Used leftovers from prior guests are not left in units for sanitary reasons. Who knows what is really in an opened bottle? The office does offer you any condiments or supplies that are desired, which may be opened with the understanding that used leftovers from other guests may or may not be sanitary. Thank you for staying with us, Aloha

Kona Reef repeat

  • 5 of 5

We returned to the Kona Reef for the 8th time. This year we stayed in unit D-26 and were happy with the layout, furniture and kitchen supplies.

The complaint for us was the cleaning crew prior to our arrival. These issues were corrected after two days as we stayed during a holiday.

We enjoyed the two chaise chairs which were provided. It made sitting on the lanai watching dolphins an whales much more comfortable.

Our contact Dia responded in a timely manner to our emails and calls.

We would recommend this unit. They have installed a new air conditioning system which is much better than the wall mounted system. Remotely controlled, it is very easy to use, although we only had to use it a few afternoons. The sunset views are spectacular and why go to a nearby resort for your Mai Tai when you have a better view here. Within easy walking distance are restaurants, shops and the brewery is a few steps farther.

Best location in Kailua Kona!
