About the property

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.

As advertised

  • 5 of 5

Clean, comfortable, and convenient. We found this unit a relaxing haven in Hawaii and like others before us we hope to return and use this unit again and the sooner the better. Exploring the area in what it has to offer in scenery, fine eating places, and shopping kept us busy through the week.

Suggestions for those that follow is cheaper gas at Costco, Huggo's nearby, Big Island Grill, Sam Choy's, farmer markets for yummy bakery treats, and Hawaiian pizza at Get Sum Pizza. We appreciated our hosts suggestions and hope these will help too.

Great place and great location!

  • 5 of 5

The Kona Reef condo was the perfect fit for my recent trip to the big Island. My boyfriend and I were looking for something nice, clean, affordable and well situated in Kona. Linda and Tony's place did not disappoint!

The condo is updated and nicely decorated (very true to the pictures, if not even better in person). The balcony has an ocean view from across the pool area, and there is a nice grassy area with lounge chairs right next to the water.

Kona Reef is right on Ali'i drive and is walking distance to restaurants/shops on the main drag. We really enjoyed stopping by Don's Mai Tai bar at the Royal Kona Resort next door to have a drink and watch the sunset, and then headed out for dinner. We took day trips up and down the coast to go beach hopping, snorkeling, and hiking and enjoy all the amazing things Hawaii has to offer!

Lastly, Linda and Tony are very responsive. They sent us easy to follow instructions on how to check in and access the lockbox, and they have helpful information in a binder inside the place. We didn't have any issues during our stay!

Breathtaking view!

  • 4 of 5

Our over all experience at Kona Reef was great! It was so dark when we arrived we had to hunt some to find our unit, but our host had given good instructions. (Numbers on units are not well lighted.) We could not get the lock box opened for the key so we called the owners. Tony came right out and opened the box and the unit up for us! All of our meals eaten at the condo were eaten out on the lanai with the wonderful view of the ocean! We only used the a/c the first night since it was late and the place had been closed up. After that we just kept the windows and patio door opened to the nice breezes and used fans. You will be close enough to walk to many places. Parking is a premium at many places but we always had a close spot at the condo. Our unit was in a good location!
