About Jim & Nancy Sommers Hawaii State Tax ID # 30130708

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.

Jim & Nancy Sommers Hawaii State Tax ID # 30130708 purchased this condo in 2001

Why Jim & Nancy Sommers Hawaii State Tax ID # 30130708 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.

Fantastic vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this centrally-located and well-appointed condo with a million-dollar view! This is indeed the best unit in the Kona Reef complex, a corner unit (overlooking the beach next door) on the top floor. Centrally-located in Kona, we were able to easily walk to restaurants, shops and the pier. The complex pool is oceanside and a great place to relax after a hot day hiking or exploring Volcano National Park. The condo itself is perfectly appointed, with everything we could have needed to make our stay on the island more enjoyable - snorkling gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, and even a rolling cooler. The air conditioning is top notch, and every room - even the lanai - has a ceiling fan. Comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and two full bathrooms made us feel like we were right at home. And owners Jim and Nancy could not have been more helpful, offering lots of tips on their favorite activities, beaches, restaurants, shops, and trivia about local residents. We hope to come back to this wonderful place soon!

lovely ocean views

  • 5 of 5

As frequent visitors to the Hawaiian Islands, my family and I have successfully rented wonderful condos owned by fabulous folks who properly maintain their piece of paradise. This top floor unit is everything that Jim and Nancy describe: picture perfect ocean front views with the sounds of the surf serenading in the background. With climate controlled central a/c units and ceiling fans, we were always very comfortable. The underground parking is a plus as it keeps your car cool. Would definitely recommend this unit and the owners to help make your Big Island Kona vacation special. We are a family of four: myself, my husband, 19 year old son and 16 year old daughter. The sofa bed in the living room is very comfortable. I especially enjoyed taking turns sleeping on it as it reminded me of my earlier years living in a Manhattan apartment! (Except I didn't have the Pacific to rock me to sleep...)

Awesome stay

  • 5 of 5

Great owners. Awesome corner unit. Our group was 5 adults. Queen bed in master, Double bed in 2nd bedroom, Sleeper sofa in living area. Double bed in 2nd bedroom was a tight fit for two daughters in their 20's. If you have a solo adult or two young children that double bed is okay. Recommend owner put a queen or two single beds in 2nd bedroom.

Again awesome owners. Absolutely recommend. My thoughts: unit for 4 adults or two adults and 4 small kids?

Get groceries at Costco on way to unit if you have a membership. Huggo's on the rocks was our favorite restaurant. Huggo's is just a couple hundred meters from condo towards town on the water. See Mt kilouea at sunset. Night Manta Ray Dive with Big Island Divers.

Jet ski rental visible from Deck of Condo: Big Island Water Sports.

Best snorkel: two steps at Pu‘uhonua o Hōnaunau National Historical Park

Owner's Response: Hi Stephen, Thank you for your nice review. We used to have twin beds in the guest bedroom however most of our rentals come from a couple or two couples. They would end up pushing the twin beds together. I think the romantic atmosphere of the condo and Kona helps make the double bed work. Thank you again for your review, we hope to see you again soon.

This Unit Really Embraces the Ocean

  • 5 of 5

We are really picky about accommodations, and this unit is our new favorite condo in Kona. It is RIGHT on the ocean, so sitting on the lanai and reading, or drinking, or eating, is like heaven on Earth. The condo itself is small but very well organized; and because it is a corner unit, both bedrooms face the beach/park/ocean as well. We particularly liked the selection of Hawaiian music and the ability to play our Hawaiian music via bluetooth from my phone. There are even speakers on the lanai! The kitchen is well-stocked, we never needed something that wasn't there, and we really enjoyed going down to the pool area to grill a steak and sit and watch the sun set. Does this sound great to you? It is! We can't wait to go back.

Perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We were 2 couples sharing the condo. We couldn't have been happier with our choice to stay in this unit at Kona Reef. The view was amazing. Sunsets that were breathtaking, Dolphins swimming and jumping, body boarders riding the waves and watching the fish (lots of yellow tang) from the balcony. The beds were plenty comfortable and the kitchen well stocked with cookware. 2 bathrooms so we didn't have to share was essential. The 2nd bedroom has only a double bed, but there isn't room for anything bigger. We managed fine. Washer/dryer was very helpful. We walked into Kailua; it was nice not to have to find/pay for parking. The owners were great and checked on us via email to make sure everything was good. I've recommended the unit to several people. We would definitely stay here again.

Perfect. Sound of the waves is relaxing

  • 5 of 5

Jim &Nancy's condo is totally equipped with everything we needed to make our 2016 holiday perfect .We loved having our morning coffee on the Lanai watching dolphins . Any little issue we had Jim was just a call away to assist us (Thank You Jim for being so accessible)We have rented condos before and the owners were not helpful at all ,pleasure to find owners that care about their renters .Our evenings were spent in the Bar-B-Que (grilling) area have dinner .Close walk to town was a pleasure as well . There are so many adventures to take in Kona Looks like we will be returning and we will definitely be staying in this condo unit again . We would most definitely recommend this unit to everyone. This condo complex was the cleanest and very well maintained,and any of the staff we had a chance to meet was helpful and very friendly

Thank you Jim & Nancy
