About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Our well-appointed, ground floor, completely remodeled condo is waiting to welcome you in to RELAX. The breathtaking ocean view straight out onto the waves will thrill you the moment you enter into our home. "WOW!!" As our guests, we are confident that you will love it as much as we do each time we walk through the doorway.

• Once you have settled in, take the relaxing stroll along the waterfront into the quaint town of Kailua (Note: there are a couple of great coffee shops that open early each morning, allowing you to sit outside and watch the waves splash on shore -- or brew your own Kona coffee in our condo and enjoy your private lanai).

• No need to hassle with driving - the shops and restaurants, spa and even a luau - are all within easy walking distance along a quiet side street.

• Or you can keep busy from morning 'til midnight, exploring the Kona Coast - hiking, biking, birding, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, exploring remote beaches, the active volcano, green and black sand beaches, etc.

• We (3 sisters) want to assure you that we will be attentive and responsive to your needs as our guests.

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

Note: We are OWNERS -- not a property management business -- so we invite you to enjoy our Kona Home!

Relaxing in the condo or out on the lanai is luxurious and refreshing. We have just purchased a new KING bed so you can plan on a good night's sleep, too! The AC in the bedroom is a bit noisy ... but it cools off the room within a few minutes and then the ceiling fan can purr quietly all night to keep you cool. In order to keep it healthy for everyone, PLEASE -- No Smoking in the condo or on the lanai.

Great location, wonderful condo, marvelous views of the waves and Incredible Value

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo! The location can't be beat -- so close to the Kailua village, the great farmers market and of course the ABC stores! We saved a LOT by not eating/drinking out very much -- not because there weren't some good options in town but because the view from the lanai was SO refreshing and relaxing, we opted to 'dine in' (and enjoy our coffee and wine with incredible views of the water). The rental rate for this condo is VERY reasonable -- I have already recommended it to several friends. As beautiful as the pictures are on the web site, they don't begin to do it justice. Book this condo early -- Debi has a lot of us return guest so her calendar fills up quickly. Thanks Debi for sharing your condo -- it is such a great place for our trips to Kona! We enjoy interacting with you as we look forward to our fabulous trips to Kona.

Top Shelf Condo - an amazing Retreat

  • 5 of 5

This Kona Reef condo was REALLY lovely! The owners have done an excellent job in keeping this condo well maintained and updated.

We spent hours enjoying the lanai day and night. Everything in this condo was clean and the cupboards were stocked with everything we needed to make ourselves feel right at home.

The location is Excellent -- we walked into town several times each day -and of course we had to go to the farmer's market every day for fresh fruit! We ended up cooking more of our meals than we anticipated - the grills were easy to use and it was so nice to sit on the lanai and enjoy our private ocean view every night while eating. We WILL be scheduling another trip to this specific condo in Kona.

Thanks, Debi, for your excellent and personal service.

Amazing!! and We Will Be Back - SOON!

  • 5 of 5

Amazing!!! We can't say it enough! D-2 is the best place to stay at Kona Reef and Debi is a dream owner to work with. The comfort provided is like I am being hugged by family. Everything you need is right there in the condo and stepping onto the Lanai to watch the sunset every evening - I mean - can it get any better than this? We were so close to the pool, the bbq area, to grassy areas, the ocean and to the covered parking. It is so close to the main shops and restaurants there in Kona and easy to drive wherever you need to go. We were able to explore different beaches, restaurants and historic areas on the island. (We even learned the difference in Shave ice vs Shaved ice - LOL).

Everything you need is here - except for you! I encourage you to book your time in D-2 at Kona Reef (before I start booking our next adventure over there!).

Thank you for an Amazing and Magical 20th Anniversary trip :).

Wonderful Kona location!

  • 5 of 5

This condo has a stunning view and a wonderful location in Kona. It's walking distance to many restaurants and shops and an easy drive to spots south and north of town. The condo was clean and provided all we needed and more. The owner is very communicative and helpful.

Beautiful! Hope to stay here again!

  • 5 of 5

This condo absolutely exceeded our expectations! Excellent location, spotlessly clean, and owner was very responsive.

We had a small problem with locating the air pump for the sofa bed initially, but Debi immediately responded to my email, and the pump was located.

Condo is VERY well stocked, especially the kitchen. There is a small collection of things like seasonings and oils, too. Boogie boards, chairs, snorkel equipment, etc. We easily found everything, and it was neatly arranged. It appears to have fairly recent updates and upgrades, and the kitchen was just awesome!

The view was perfect, especially at sunset. There is a grassy area just over the rock wall, and you can walk up and down the area beside the rocks. The first day, a trio of probably thieves was hanging out around the rocks outside of our lanai. We made it apparent that we knew what they were up to, and they moved away. Maintenance came and ran them off, since the grassy area is private property. Other than this, we didn't see homeless people hanging around the condo or the beach. Just lock up when you leave. We never at any point felt unsafe.

Some reviewers mentioned the bedroom AC being noisy. It's a portable unit, and is right beside the bed. But it's white noise, which was perfect for me. Even with it off, we heard no noise from the street, neighboring units, or the pool area. Very quiet, family atmosphere. Property is well-kept.

Here was the best part for me. I use a walker or wheelchair, and we have difficulty finding a property and a unit to accommodate me. This one was perfect. We were able to easily get to our car and the pool using the ramps (inside gated pool area). I was able to get over the wall outside of our lanai, and use my walker to easily move around the grassy area. The unit itself is small, but everything was accessible. There is a lot of furniture in the bedroom, but I was still able to move around easily. The only thing I wasn't a fan of was the bed, because the mattress is harder than I am used to. It was rough on my back, but I realize that everybody has different needs and wants when it comes to mattresses. A memory foam topper might be worth looking into.

Overall, a great stay and great communication with Debi, the owner. We hope that this unit is available next summer. This was our first visit to the big island, and it was so much better than we ever dreamed.

Why Debi Peterson, Terry O'Brien & Nancy Welfelt chose Kailua-Kona

The Kona Reef is located within walking distance of everything in Kona. The management of this complex is very attentive to detail and safety of all the guests. The public gardens, pool area and ocean front is immaculately tended.

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets, the fresh breezes, the glorious sunshine, the views of the waves, fish, dolphins and surfers -- all are often a distraction to the good books we are trying to read! We are able to rest and refresh and rejuvenate in our special Kona time!
