About James & Nancy Sommers Tax ID # TA-183-073-1176-01 GE ID # 183-073-1776-01

My wife and I live in Los Angeles. About 17 years ago we fell in love with Kona. We purchased our condo in 2001 and spend as much time there as possible. It really is our home away from home and we enjoy sharing it with others. The location is great.

James & Nancy Sommers Tax ID # TA-183-073-1176-01 GE ID # 183-073-1776-01 purchased this condo in 2001

Why James & Nancy Sommers Tax ID # TA-183-073-1176-01 GE ID # 183-073-1776-01 chose Kona Coast

We wanted to be as close to the ocean as possible, we love the Kona Reef and the little town of Kona, which is just a 10 minute walk to the center of town from our condo..

What makes this condo unique

We never miss watching the amazing sunsets from our lanai. The dolphins put on a show for us everyday and whale season is really exciting. Kona is a very special place and has something for everyone.

The Best Lanai

  • 5 of 5

We loved this place and our visit to Kona was wonderful. We were looking for a place near the venue for a family wedding and this was perfect. It was within walking distance of that and more. Jim and Nancy's condo is beautifully appointed right down to the much appreciated binoculars. We used them almost daily. Every room has a spectacular view and we also made use of Jim's recommendations and enjoyed beaches and restaurants we surely wouldn't have known about. Home again, we miss the sound of the surf. We logged an entry into the guest book to the effect that we likely had the best lanai on the Kona Coast -- the best wave breaks in the neighborhood were right out in front of us and attracted surfers and boogie boarders every afternoon. In the shallow water we could see schools of yellow reef fish, and on several mornings we used the binoculars and zoom lens to watch pods of spinner dolphins putting on a show. In the kitchen there was a beautiful little gecko to protect us from bugs. And as a bonus, Honu The Sea Turtle basked upon the rocks by the tide pools below our lanai. We are considering another visit to The Big Island, and Kona Reef A-31 will be our first choice. Mahalo Jim and Nancy!

Simply fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

You can almost reach out and touch the surf from the lanai. Every room has a sweeping ocean view. Just a quick walk to restaurants and shops. The owners, who are readily accessible, make sure everything is perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Loved our time at this lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was an incredible host who shared terrific advice about fun things to do, and seemed to personally enjoy all the good times we were having. He even drew maps to special, little known beaches where sea turtles basked! The view from the condo, with its wrap-around windows, is even better than the photos, better than we imagined! The lanai IS the best place to have a drink, to view the sunset, to watch surfers and boogie boarders. The condo's amenities made everything very comfortable for us. Sea turtles fed in the ponds in the lava in front of the condo. It is an easy, beautiful walk into the town of Kona, so restaurants, bars, shops, and even the new Catholic church are just a short walk away, and right on the ocean or very close. A short or long drive south or north are wonderful beaches for boogie boarding, snorkeling, or sun bathing. We used the pool and hot tub at the resort daily too. One of the very best parts was being surrounded by the sound of ocean waves, day and night! We two couples, lifelong friends, definitely look forward to returning for another reunion.

Kona at it best!

  • 5 of 5

Location,location,location. The views from this penthouse condo have all you would expect. Beach, surfers, lava and palm trees of course. Sunsets are beautiful. Turtles feeding in ocean by condo. Whales flipping a little ways out. It is Kona at its best! Inside the condo has been furnished nice and kept up with care. The owners have also been more than accommodating and attentive. We will look forward to coming back in a couple years.
