About Kathy

This is a family owned and operated condo. We live in California but have family located in Kona. We try to get there as often as possible to enjoy the condo and update it as well.

Kathy purchased this condo in 1993

Why Kathy chose Kona Coast

The perfect location just outside the Village of Kona. Walking distance to shops and restaurants yet quiet and relaxing.

Guestbook comments from the owner

We found this unit through a friend and so happy that he referred us! The owners were so easy to deal with and the unit is great as was the price. Wonderful views and so clean. I hope we can go back soon!

A wonderful place to stay

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I came here for the second week of our honeymoon. In mid September 2015, Hawaii was hot and very humid. There were at least 3 hurricanes which were spiraling in the larger ocean and generally screwing up the water visibility and the humidity. Kona was supposedly the dry side of the island, but it was humid enough that we got some thunder storms there several evenings. My wife doesn't do so well in heat and humidity as a general rule.

So, why am I mentioning this?

Because the air condition in this unit was OUTSTANDING! Located in the living space, it kept the whole unit cool and comfortable when we were there. Given that it wasn't central air but a window unit, The Little AC That Could behaved like a big boy central air unit! The unit was clean and well maintained. There were some boogie boards in the closet. By the time we got to Kona, we were desperate for laundry facilities. The condo had a stacked washer and dryer which was magical! I've never been so excited to see a laundry machine before!

There is a futon and a matching chair in the living room. The futon folds down for others to sleep. The condo is located just shy of ground floor. It's about 4 or 5 steps down to it's level. There is an elevator; however, it stops in between levels and won't be much help to someone in a wheelchair or who just can't handle stairs. The unit is about 1/4 to 1/2 a mile from 'downtown' Kona. There are a TON of shops and a big local good market place bazaar. We liked Jack's Dive Locker for our SCUBA adventures. The restaurants in the area are amazing and we would heartily recommend Kona Brewing Company for wonderful pizza. (Get the pesto sauce!)

Thank you for letting us make use of your amazing condo! We had a wonderful time!

We had an amazing week in this condo and certainly will recommend it. It was very clean, comfortable, homely, well maintained, well equipped and quiet. A great place to relax and watch the surfers from your lanai or to explore the Island from. We had a hire car and travelled around the Island but on days we didn't want to travel we could just wonder into Kona where there are restaurants, shops and all other facilities. We also enjoyed the amazing sunsets!

Awesome location for our first visit to the Big Island

  • 4 of 5

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Kona Reef. The condo was wonderful, well stocked and so comfortable. The pool and barbecue were great - we had many lovely meals down by the pool. The best part had to be the amazing view of the ocean and the sound of the waves rolling in. We could have watched and listened to the waves from the lanai for hours! Thank you, Kathy, for your part in making our first time in Kona so memorable.

Our second home (we wish!)

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have been coming to Kona for many years and have to say the Kona Reef is NO KA 'OI (the best).

We have visited all of the Hawaiian Islands over the past forty years, but, as time has gone by, we have come to see the Big Island as the best of them all, and in particular, the Hawaiian people and climate of Kailua Kona. It is indeed Paradise! It was just by chance about 15 years ago that we rented this condo owned by Kathy. Ever since then, this has been our condo of choice year after year. It has come to feel like our second home. This in itself should serve a very positive recommendation to anyone considering renting this unit.

Let me expand on why we are so pleased with every stay.

The location is perfect for us; it is a 10 minute walk to the town with its many restaurants, farmer’s market and shopping choices. It’s only a short drive (less than 4 miles) to Kahalu"u Beach Park which is an excellent snorkel beach.

The unit has everything we need. It is nicely furnished and upgrades, such as the new light fixtures and a walk-in shower, help to keep it up-to-date. Well stocked with kitchen utensils, detergent, paper products, etc. Lots of other extras such as boogie boards, beach chairs, beach towels…….

There is plenty of parking if you rent a car.

We especially love the beautiful ocean view from the lanai. We are able to sit on the lanai in the mornings and enjoy watching the whales, dolphins swimming and jumping and many surfers.

Sometimes something will go wrong such as toilet flapper malfunctioning, or a lanai door needs a track repair. Not to worry; a call to Kathy and the problem is looked after immediately.

I would be very remiss if I did not comment on the complex itself. The Property Manager, Paul does an outstanding job of making certain that all aspects of property maintenance are carried out in a very professional manner. He goes out of his way to ensure the Kona Reef is a safe, family-friendly environment. Then there is Fran! Fran has been working at the Kona Reef much longer than we have been guests here, and, is a significant contributor as to why my wife and I return year after year. She is on the job by 5:30 A.M. every day. She services the pool and hot tub while the guests are still sleeping. Each of the 4 stainless steel BBQ’s are impeccably cleaned and polished each morning and ready for use by noon. Fran then proceeds to tend to the beautiful flowers and lawns around the property. Thank you Fran!

Fantastic view, great place, well kept - I'll be back...

  • 5 of 5

This condo is perfectly located in Kona, you can easily walk to all places downtown. The view is amazing and hearing the waves crash on the beach is so soothing. The condo is very well maintained, very clean, all you need to do is buy food if you choose to cook, although there are some very nice places to eat. Lava Java & Hugo's on the Rocks became a favorite. We've used VRBO many times in the past, this place for sure is one of our top stays!
