Third floor lanai is above the people walking by and what you see are the waves rolling ashore, the surfers and so much more. The 3rd level of the D building at Kona Reef is perfect for viewing the surf as the white waters roll ashore over the black lava creating a contrast that represents the beauty found on the Big Island, On the lanai, you hear the sound of the waves and birds that may be singing as they fly from palm tree to palm tree. It is truly paradise... The cushy and comfortable lanai chairs are the perfect spot for enjoying your morning Kona coffee and just as awesome is taking in Kona's magnificent sunsets in the evening!

About Grace 'Darline'

I love all the wacky fun things in Kona like the holiday parade with all sorts of trucks, police cars, jeeps, you name it… if it has wheels…it is decorated and the owners and friends wave and wish you well as they drive down our one street by the ocean . It is all Kona… it is all fun. Of course, these fun parades down the street of Kona Village include marching bands and kids and dogs and who and whatever…it is all Kona. Candy is passed out and thrown to the groves of people who come to cheer everyone on…it is a Kona night… fun for all. Parades don’t just happen in December they occur through out the year for just about any reason…it is Kona-Kona style:)

Of course there is the world famous Ironman in October where most everyone cheers on the runners till midnight…that is the one big night when most everyone wants to be at the finish line at midnight for the big celebration of the last runner who comes into the village and across the finish line…

it is an emotional fun filled moment. There is no place like Kona. It is what makes Kona …Kona! It is what I love!

Grace 'Darline' purchased this condo in 1996

Why Grace 'Darline' chose Kona Coast

This condo is as close as possible to the ocean rolling ashore...Like... it is right there in front of us as we listen to the roar of the waves rolling over the lava. In the background, I hear the birds singing their beautiful songs. Another great experience is to go down to where the waves greet the black lava and sit on the sea wall and be engulfed by the energy of the waves as they crash before you.

The inviting pool along with a hot tub awaits after a day out sightseeing - then bring on the pupu's, or hot dogs or hamburgers to grill and meet and share with other travelers favorite spots to go and see. OR...sit down at the lanai table with a favorite drink and give a toast to the end of another perfect day.

This is paradise on earth!

What makes this condo unique

It is Kona on the Big Island... An Island with all its own mysteries and mystical energies! There is nothing like Kona!The benefits are for you to discover:)! The aloha is for you to take home and life is just better having been in Kona...the differences, like the benefits, are for you to discover!:)

My extraordinary stay in Kona!!!

  • 5 of 5

My extraordinary stay in Kona!!! My husband and I walked into the most breathtaking view and the most relaxing ocean breeze This was a place of beauty and peace. You could feel the aloha everywhere in the condo and on the lanai… It exceeded all of our expectations in every way. Every meal was spent on the beautiful lanai watching the incredible view, sunsets and waves lapping gently onto shore. The King size bed was scrumptious. The kitchen was stocked with every conceivable utensil one could desire and the opportunity to barbecue with any tool you can think of . We were delighted that this had been our choice and we will most definitely return regularly and share it with all who we come into contact with!!! Thank you, thank you, thank you.

Owner's Response: How incredibly awesome that the condo exceeded all of your expectations and more!!! That is exactly the feeling that we strive for ...the desire that every guest will open the door and feel a big WOW and exclaim as they step down the hall in to the living room, hearing the waves and feeling the breeze exclaim,"This is even better than I ever expected!" Your excitement and joy is exactly why we do what we do for the condo! Your remarks have given back to us a priceless gift... for your words let us know that our goal of giving our guests an amazing experience filled with aloha is being received and recognized!

Wrapped in Aloha

  • 5 of 5

That is how I feel when I stay in Thus unit.. I've stayed in this unit half a dozen times so it truly feels like returning home. Everything you could need or want is provided-from kitchen items to beach toys, even a great selection of books. Oh-and the view of the water couldn't be better. The location on Ali'i Drive is perfect for walking to town to visit the Farmer's Market, for shopping and great restaurants. If you want to stay home and do yoga, there is even a yoga mat!

Darline(owner) exudes the Aloha spirit so the process from booking through departure is very easy. Honl's Beach is next door. The pool, hot tub and grills are oceanfront. I have stayed at other places in Kona and other units at Kona Reef but D25 gets my vote every time!!!

Owner's Response: The most wonderful compliment is that you feel at home!!! That is exactly what we want for all of our guests... to feel at home as they enjoy all of the wonderful adventures and activities on the Big Island!!! Everything we have added to the condo is done with the one intention of giving each guest an "ALOHA EXPERIENCE " ! That is our goal and our passion and exactly why we do what we do...giving aloha is our gift...a gift we wish for each person to take home and with the hope that one day we will meet again... You hit the nail on the head , once again, for so many people there is a big importance in being able to walk to town and enjoy the many wonderful restaurants and for some sip the Hawaiian exotic drinks than walk back to the condo...no car to drive rather a beautiful walk back to our oceanfront condo! I am so happy that on your trips to Kona that you enjoyed the many magnificent features of our complex... the wonderful swimming pool and hot tub and the absolutely gorgeous BAR B Q area which all over look the ocean and being a west view enjoy many sunsets! We love having you return each year to our condo for when you return it is like family coming home! Mahalo for being apart of our 'Ohana, Darline:)

Great Rental Experience

  • 5 of 5

You can't beat its location. It is right on the ocean. You can enjoy the beautiful sunsets and hear the surf on the rocks. This unit is beautifully decorated. There is an extensive guide to the area. It is only a 2 block walk to some wonderful restaurants.

Owner's Response: Aloha and Mahalo for your review! We are always excited and thrilled and grateful to have confirmation that our guests have had the 5 star experience that we strive to give each and every guests!!! We know it takes alot of expense and thought to plan a trip to the Big island and that is exactly why we want all of our guests to walk into the condo and feeling WOW...it is better than I dreamed and thought!" Hearing the surf roll ashore and seeing the magnificent sunsets is truly like a dream come true! If that is not enough, you mentioned the next big thing ...our location only 2 blocks to restaurants which is really a plus for those who are tempted to try the famous Mai Tais and other exotic drinks of the island...no driving just a beautiful Short walk back to the condo! All of this and a condo right on the ocean! This is truly paradise!! Thank you so much for letting us be apart of your time in paradise! Lots of aloha, Darline:)

Lots of Aloha!

  • 5 of 5

I wish I could give this place, Darline and the whole experience more stars. This condo has INCREDIBLE energy. The Aloha is alive and palpable as the condo has every single possible thing you could want to enjoy your stay, and numerous other details that make it feel like home. Better than home! The sound of the ocean every night, the sunsets, all the comforts you could think of, the decor, the comfy bed. I don't think we closed the glass doors once the whole time we were there, preferring to leave the screens closed and the sounds of the ocean permeating in the space. So incredible. Book, book, book! Can't wait to go back!

Owner's Response: Kasie, everyday in every way we do what we do with the condo with one goal in mind...to have the feeling for our guests EXACTLY what you so eloquently expressed! What a beautiful writer you are as you express your thoughts in such a magnificent way! You nailed our compassion so spot on... for we truly hope that our guests feel the incredible energy and the aliveness of the Aloha in the condo for that is our goal and our passion and why we do what we do in the condo... the big and small. The King Size bed is our latest addition and again what you expressed is exactly why we purchased the big luxurious bed...so it would feel" comfy" to our guests after a day of having fun in Kona with all of the many activities... a tired body and a great bed to rest on for the night!!! And ,of course, you were spot on about the awesome sound of the waves penetrating throughout the condo! Being apart of the sounds and the aloha is such a high and that is the wonderful feeling that we want for all of our guests! A huge mahalo for letting us know about you amazing experience in our oceanfront condo! We want you to always feel the condo is a place you can call home and we really look so forward to your return with great anticipation!. Lots of aloha, Darline

Great Ocean Front Condo!

  • 5 of 5

My wide and I have stayed at D25 three or four times now, and we keep coming back. The lanai overlooking the waves crashing into lava tide pools is really awesome. We like to grill up some fresh fish & veggies on the grills (which are immaculately cleaned each day) and have a nice sunset dinner each day. It's like our own private four star restaurant with a perfect quiet table. We leave the lanai doors open and listen the ocean waves all throughout the condo.

The last time we stayed they had just finished a bathroom remodel which looked great, and they have everything you need from beach chairs to coolers to all the stuff for cooking. Another great feature is that the condo is a short walk into town if you want to do a dinner out or check out the tourist walk.

We are definitely looking forward to our next visit!

Owner's Response: So glad you enjoyed grilling at the Bar BQ! Watching the sunset over the ocean and grilling is so awesome and one of the very big and wonderful experiences at Kona Reef! On the Big Island, one of the favorites is buying the fresh fish and cooking the fish on the grill! I am so happy that you enjoyed the ocean view while grilling and also while dining on the lanai! I know it just does not get much better than that for freshness and an awesome view! Yes, you were the first guests to enjoy the new bathroom and I am so happy that you appreciated the bathroom. We installed the rain dance shower head so it would be perfect for people of all heights. The shower glass with a palm tree motif design is to add to the feeling of aloha. Walking to town is the big plus about Kona Reef. Close enough to walk and far enough to not hear the town! Basically , as you pointed out...it is the best of both worlds! Lots of aloha, Darline:)

Our stay at D25 was absolutely PERFECT! We fell in love with the unit the moment we stepped in and saw the incredible view & refreshing breeze blowing through the sliding glass doors.

The owner went above & beyond to assure we had everything we could possibly need for a fun, relaxing, peaceful week. The view and sound of crashing waves make this the PERFECT getaway! We hope to return soon!

The waves can be heard in most places in the condo. We are truly an oceanfront! It is so rewarding and good to hear that you had what you needed for a relaxing,fun and peaceful week! That is our goal for our guests and why we do what we do for the condo! To know we met our goal of giving you a 5 star experience means all the world to us! So a huge thank you for all of your kind words and we look forward to your return with great anticipation!!!! Lots of aloha, Darline:
