Kailua-Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom-King size bed + queen air mattress , 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

You can't imagine how good it feels to relax on our lanai and soak in the sights and sounds of the waves rolling in. This corner unit has the benefit of side windows in every room which makes it light and airy. This building also has larger rooms and an elevator which stops on every floor. There is a comfortable king size bed. The kitchen was just remodeled with granite countertops and plenty of room for storage. The living area and bedroom has new wood floors, comfortable chairs and a table for dining inside as well as out. There are new shuttered window treatments to provide control of light and beauty. There are also two TVs in case our visitors have different viewing tastes. Free Wi-Fi.

This oceanfront complex is one of the most popular as it is but a short stroll to the downtown area. The oceanfront and adjacent beach offer many opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling , surfing, visiting tide pools, spotting turtles and watching sunsets. From the lanai, you can spot dolphins, whales in season, cruise ships, paddlers and surfers. If that doesn't keep you busy, nearby Kona Village has many restaurants, shops a popular farmers' market, and art galleries.

Swim in our pool or relax in the jacuzzi after a day of sight seeing. Enjoy the friendly BBQ and eating area. Spend some time at Kona Reef and you will fall in love with this condo and this island. We look forward to helping you make your vacation time everything you hoped for.

About Linda Keeling

Kona is our home. After traveling alot, we decided to buy property on the Big Island. We lived in our condo in Kona Reef when we were not traveling until just recently when we bought a house nearby. We had fixed up our condo in Kona Reef with thoughts that that would be our permanent home. We loved the location and listening to the waves rolling in. We still miss our condo, but are busy with gardening and working on our new house. Since we are on island, we can make certain our condo is clean and ready for our guests. We hope we can make your vacation with us very enjoyable.

Linda Keeling purchased this condo in 2002

Why Linda Keeling chose Kona Coast

We love traveling. We had lived on a sailboat and blue water sailed for 9 years in Mexico and the South Pacific. We were looking for a place like some of the islands in the South Pacific, but an island in the U.S. that would be closer to family. We had been to many of the Hawaiian islands but none were as diverse and interesting as the Big Island called 'Hawaii'. Kona has mild temperatures and sunny skies most of the time, which allows us to pursue our outdoor interests. Aloha

What makes this condo unique

The property is well cared for and people working here are very friendly and helpful. Our unit is located at a higher elevation than most in the complex so we get a lovely view from a secured unit. Being a corner unit with side windows and balcony allow for the marvelous cross breezes and keep us cool and happy. The elevators stop directly at the floor levels in F building allowing for easy access and are larger in size than one bedroom units in other buildings.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Thank you so much for the use of your home. We greatly enjoyed our stay! If only we had a view like this from our home. We hope to come back here soon.

Convenient location to shops, restaurants, activities

  • 4 of 5

This Kona Reef condo was easy to find, with ample parking and a great location in proximity to Kona village area. Made for a short walk (1/2 mile easy walk) to center of shops, restaurants, etc. The condo building is large, and well kept overall. We appreciated the clean unit, and amenities. It had everything we needed to prepare breakfasts, and snacks. Great ocean and pool view from the Lani. The bathroom was attractive with a large walk in tiled shower. We spent one week here, and were off visiting the Island landmarks, volcanoes, fishing, and beaching, so we were usually only in the condo at night and in the morning. We did not use the pool but it appeared clean and inviting.

The location while greatly convenient, is right on the main road and very noisy. If you keep the bedroom window open at night, you may need ear plugs. The unit is a corner unit and when the windows were all open fully, you might get a breeze, but it was still very warm inside. We found it necessary to run the bedroom ceiling fan on high all night. We also, on a personal level found the bed, pillows and the sofa, VERY hard. You also may need to buy TP as there was only a limited amount to use. Otherwise it was a nice unit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your comments. We are terribly sorry you found the bed, pillows, etc. hard. Many people complement us on the bed and say it is the most comfortable they have ever slept in. It is difficult to try to meet everyone's taste. We do have other pillows to which you had access , and which are softer. Certain times in Kona are warm, and if you are from a cooler climate, it might be hard adjusting. The fans are for that purpose, and the air conditioning should help also. As far as the toilet paper, usually we leave more than enough, but there are times when our housekeeper may not follow our prescribed amounts, and times when I don't have time to see the unit before a guest comes in. A phone call to us would have helped to make everything more to your liking. We encourage that and are only 10 minutes away. Thank you again for staying with us and for your comments.

Kona Paradise

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time my husband and I stayed at Kona Reef. This is the perfect location for anything and everything on the island. The grounds are better maintained and look cleaner than the hotels around here. The pool and barbecue area were perfect for just relaxing and spending time with a good book. Listening to the waves and watching the surfers was so soothing. The room we stayed in this time, #F11, had the perfect view and was very comfortable. The shower and bathroom look just remodeled. Linda had everything ready and perfect for our arrival. I would give this room and complex 7 stars if I could.

Awesome view and location!!!

  • 5 of 5

Super view and walking distance to downtown area makes this the ideal spot. Linda and Tony are very responsive and super nice people. The kitchen is well stocked and great if you like to prepare your own meals. There were a couple of small snafus that were rectified immediately and we enjoyed our stay immensely. One great thing about this unit (property 300638) is it is bright and sunny because it is an end unit and therefore has more windows for viewing the outdoors. Some friends of mine rented a unit across from us and it was pretty dark and felt a little oppressive. I would recommend this unit if you are considering a place in Kona Reef. A completely pleasant and convenient place to stay.

Awesome view, great location

  • 4 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful time at Kona Reef. The location was perfect for walking to restaurants and beaches. The view from the lanai is awesome and we spent quite a bit of time relaxing and reading out there. The condo amenities were basic and comfortable. I was a bit concerned with the traffic noise from Alii Drive in the bedroom when we first arrived, but it wasn't noticeable. The property is well maintained and we enjoyed cooking several meals at the communal bbq area. Linda and Tony were very responsive and we made us of their suggestions and the Big Island Revealed guidebook. We would gladly return for another stay. Thank you Linda and Tony!
