Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

This top floor, corner Condominium in the beautifully maintained Kona Reef Condominiums awaits you!

• Relax on the private lanai and watch the wave, the surfers, the dolphins, the sunsets …. and BREATHE in that fresh ocean air!

• You can relax by the pool, in shade or sun, or sit on the grass (or on the comfy chaise lounge chairs) at the edge of the ocean.

• Use the immaculately cleaned barbecues (4) to grill up fresh fish or steaks and watch the sunset - ahhhhhhh!

• There is a public sandy beach bordering the Kona Reef to the south. We enjoy going into the ocean from this beach -- easier access for snorkeling than directly out front of the condo.

• The relaxing stroll along the waterfront into the quaint town of Kailua is wonderful - from early morning (there are a couple of great coffee shops that open early, allowing you to sit outside and watch the waves splash on shore) until late at night. No need to hassle with driving - the shops and restaurants, spas and even a luau - are all within easy walking distance from our condominium.

• You can keep busy from morn 'til midnight, exploring the Kona Coast - hiking, biking, birding, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, exploring remote beaches, the volcano, green and black sand beaches – or just sit and enjoy RELAXING!

• Come! Stay awhile - Relax, renew your energy and soak up the beauty of creation all around!

Note: We own another condo here at the Kona Reef -- check out our other listing (vrbo # 27574). We are OWNERS ... not property managers so we invite you to enjoy our Kona Home!

Great location, personable owner, clean and quiet getaway

  • 5 of 5

Our visit to Kona included several days in this condo. It's location was perfect, so close to town while still considered quiet. The condo was very clean, very well supplied and the grounds were very well kept. My husband and I and our two middle school children had plenty of room. Debi was wonderful with her prompt, personal responses and was VERY flexible for our every changing dates!! Thank you. When we return to Kona, we hope to revisit this condo.

Perfect spot overlooking a perfect sunset!

  • 5 of 5

This had to be one of the best choices I have made when visiting the Hawaiian islands! I could stay here for a month or more. The view was incredible every single day I woke up and went to bed. I rented this condo from Debi when I couldn't find a hotel on Kona that wasn't going to charge an arm and a leg to stay in. Turns out staying at Debi's place IS where you will want to stay! My buddy and I went to Hawai'i to celebrate his turning 50 and to do a symbolic "sacrifice-of-youth" to the Great Volcanoes of The Big Island. We did a lot of driving around and it was great to come back to a home as opposed to a hotel. We BBQ'd a couple times by the pool and made our own dinners and breakfasts in the well supplied kitchen. The sofa served well enough as a second bed, but Debi had an extra blow-up bed available to use. Looking out over the Pacific Ocean each day from the lanai was a real treat, and a comparable view in a hotel would have been $50-$100 additional! Low key place. Very Relaxing! The pool was perfect! And seeing sea turtles surfing up on the rocks in front of the complex was a spectacular sight to see! Debi, I will defiantly be contacting you again next year when I make my way back to Hawai'i! Thank you for being so easy to communicate with and making this trip effortless! Mahalo! - Roger

We loved oue stay at Kona Reef .

  • 4 of 5

The kona Reef was great ! We could walk in to kona to have dinner or go to the open air market for fresh fruits and vegies .We cooked a lot of meals in the condo it full kitchen and a BBQ by the pool. the place has a great view of the pool and the ocean and the lanai is great to have dinner while you watch the ocean. the condo also has chairs and coolers for your trips around the big island . there is also a nice little beach on the left side of the Kona reef we liked to hang out at . renting this condo easy and owner was very nice.

We loved the Big island ! We came to snorkel and saw a lot turtles new kinds of fish .the crater was cool and also water falls in the rain forest . Our big adventure this trip was going on the Manta ray snorkel ! they are so big and come very close it was so cool!

Beautiful views!

  • 5 of 5

We had a fabulous stay in Kona! This condo has everything we needed with the bonus of beautiful views from the lanai. Crashing waves at sunset can't be beat! Walking was preferred for restaurants (Mai Tai's!). We drove to a different beach each day. We made daily use of the beach chairs, cooler, and towels; washer/dryer; comfortable bed; wifi; garage parking. Your condo is clean, comfortable, and well maintained. Highly recommended!

Wonderful spot in Kona

  • 5 of 5

I had the opportunity to stay in this condo recently and I could not be more pleased. The condo itselfwas clean and comfortable. The lanai was perfect with views of pool, ocean, and beautiful sunsets. Close enough to Kona to walk to shopping and restaurants, but far enough to be peaceful. Couldn't ask for more!

Perfect Kona stay

  • 5 of 5

I stayed in this unit for 5 nights and it was perfect. The location is great just a short walk to town so no driving is required after we enjoyed happy hour mai tais at "On the Rocks" and Don's. The lanai has a beautiful view of the shoreline, the bay and pool. It was fun to wake up two mornings to views of the different cruise ships anchored in the bay. The bed is really comfortable. The kitchen was equipped with all we needed plus they included a soft side cooler to take cool lunches or beverages with you. We enjoyed taking the snorkeling gear and boogie boards from the closet out for a morning of playing in the waves. I highly recommend this as a lodging option while on the Big Island.
