At the front door...there are no buildings or walls to block the breeze..this is the great advantage of this condo and makes this location very desirable.
The front door faces the hills and the morning sun! How perfect to just open the front door and be greeted by such beauty!!!!
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!
You are surrounded by beauty from the front door view to the views from the lanai...it is all a picture of paradise!

The kitchen linens include place mats, potholders and dish clothes.
The LIVING ROOM...a chair with the ability for the foot stool to go up when you lean back that is ...if you do not want your legs to hang down..legs up is very good for the circulation and resting the weary legs that have been walking all over the Big island is good for many guests! With this amazing chair your legs can hang down or go up...your choice that is if you are not memorized by the ocean and find yourself always going to the lanai:)!.Also, there is a, bar stool in the living room, and a dining set which has been coordinated to give a light and airy tropical ole' Hawaii feel. Also in the living room there is a sofa with 2 small glass top tables in front of the sofa. As well as an entertainment center, and a wall air conditioner which cools the living room and kitchen area.
Actually, it's preferred by many to just keep the sliding doors open. and the front door open with the front security screen door locked and let the wonderful ocean breeze just flow through the condo as you enjoy the sounds of the ocean and birds...This is all your choice:)...We want you to do what you like... air conditioning with the doors closed or an open door...it is all your choice:).It is the Hawaii you have dreamed about and it is all yours to enjoy!!
Please note...as mentioned, the wall air conditioner is in the living room This wall air conditioner is designed to cool only the living room.

The BEDROOM has its own television and DVD player. There is a built in dresser as well as closets.. The bedroom does NOT have an air conditioner.. There is a comfy KING SIZE BED in the bedroom ...with the sliding door open, and the bedroom door open in the silence of the night many guests report that they can hear the waves in the bedroom...
I can too!!! And with the bedroom windows open, as well as the sliding door and bedroom door, the air flows through the condo and bedroom.. It may at night get too cool for you, toward morning, so we have blankets in the closet if the bedroom gets too chilly !
This is Kona...this is the real 'ole Hawaii at its best...beauty every where and so much to see and do... then you come back at the end of the day to relax and "talk story" on the lanai! And many guests say their favorite thing to do is have morning coffee on the lanai. Some guests report they find it very difficult to even leave the lanai. As one guests said so well,"I could have stayed on the lanai the whole trip. It was hard to get up and leave the comfy chair and the beauty...I was memorized by the sounds of the waves!"
From our LANAI (balcony...patio...deck ) only a few feet from the ocean enjoy the surfers, cruise ships, parasailers, whales, dolphins, and sea turtles... or just relax and enjoy the sunsets while dining on our private lanai...an unobstructed 180 degree view of the ocean and coastline.
Most important ...

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 rolling down the center of the town as walkers pass out candy to the kids… if it has wheels…it is decorated and the owners and friends wave and wish you, "A Merry Christmas" as they drive down our one street by the ocean . Where would you see this besides in Kona?! 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 truly is Kona and I love what happens in Kona! Parades don’t just happen in December they occur through out the year for just about any reason…it is Kona-Kona style:) And everyone comes out for the Kona Parade...streets are blocked off and filled with people with their beach chairs...it's Kona! I love how wild and different everything seems to be in Kona! 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 runs into the village and across the finish line…I love being there and making a difference for all of the participants! I remember one person crawling across the finish line at 11:59 and 45 seconds . The cutoff is Midnight...there was yelling and happiness on the streets as we all went crazy with joy that she made it. Then there is the participant who runs in at 12:01 and is told ...you are "You are a finisher" (Not an Ironman).There is not a dry eye on the streets at that moment. Your heart breaks..this person began the swim at 7AM- biked 112 miles, ran the 26 miles and misses being called an Ironman and in Kona we all weep because we care !!! Even our elevators are different..they stop between floors instead of at level 2 or 3 or 4...yes between floors so u get out and go down 4 stairs or up 8 stairs.. I love how Kona is Kona!
Grace 'Darline' purchased this Condo in 1996
Why Grace 'Darline' chose Hōlualoa
D25 Oceanfront is on the 3rd level of this 4 story complex. The 3rd level is perfect for having privacy as folks walk along the grass at the shoreline and yet just perfect for watching the waves roll ashore and enjoying all of the water activities and not so high that you feel above it all and miss anything that is too close to the shore line to be observed.The building 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, steaks or fresh fish 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 in paradise. Truly 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... You will leave different than when you arrived...it is the mystical and special energies of the Big Island which are held by no other island that penetrate your very soul and make the difference.. It is different for each person in one way and in other ways all the same ...a feeling of ...WOW...I am better for having had this amazing trip to the Big island with all of its wonderful features and energies...the volcano , Mauna Kea, swimming with the turtles and snorkling with the fish and so much more... the Big Island is an island of contrast and special energies that attract people from all over the world...there is no place like the Big Island and Kona is at the heart of it all!!!

A wonderful place to stay in Kona. View from the lanai is breathtaking!
Darline was a wonderful hostess who shared tons of information about the area. The condo has everything that you would possibly need. Best equipped VRBO I've ever stayed in. Coffee pot and grinder were first class plus she gave us a pound of delicious Kona coffee. The king size bed was so comfortable. We were mesmerized by the view and sounds of the ocean from our very private linai. It is very close to downtown Kona. One night we walked down to have a drink on the water and decided to go back to our beautiful lanai instead. It is paradise! We will definitely return to D 25!
Your very kind words just resonant with so many of us who are also mesmerized by the view and the sounds of the waves...no matter how many times I have sat on the lanai...like you... I too am mesmerized by the waves rolling ashore. It is hard to leave the lanai!
I am so happy that you found everything that you needed in the condo...one of our goals is for the condo to have everything you need to feel at home and be comfortable!
It was a real happy moment to hear that you enjoyed and appreciated the King size bed! . When we felt the mattress in the showroom last year, we knew it was the perfect bed for our Kona guests ...so thank you for validating that for us~...that is exactly what we wanted for our guests...a comfortable bed at the end of an awesome day in Kona !
It is music to our ears to know that you will be returning to our condo for our guests are like family and everything about the condo evolves around creating an experience of aloha for our guests with the hope that each guest loves their time on the Big Island and their time in our condo!!
This is the sweetest condo and the owner is amazing to deal with. Darline was so accommodating and the unit is perfect for a couple. Kona Reef is a great condo building, the pool, the hot tub, bbqs to make your dinner and always great conversation with other tenants. The sunsets are fantastic as is the location. Close to everything you need and a great base for exploring the island!!
Amazing condo in Kailua Kona
This condo wil amaze you from the moment you walk in and see and hear the waves. We could not have been more pleased with the location and condition of D-25. It was spotlessly clean and outfitted with anything you could possibly need. We loved sitting on the lanai watching the waves, sunsets and surfers. The owner was super responsive to any problem (very little issues) and we truly felt at home. Easy walking distance to town and convenient driving to the two national parks. The whole complex was quiet while we were there in April and we slept well on the very comfortable king bed. There are plenty of restaurants nearby but you could easily prepare meals in the well equipped kitchen. Some favorite spots to eat were Huggos, Happys and Bongo Ben for breakfast a couple times. Otherwise we enjoyed relaxing on the lanai and eating. We have stayed in other Kona Reef condos but this was by far the nicest. Thank you Darlene!
Over the top.also very homey
"Over the top" What music to our ears for that is exactly what we wanted you to experience while staying in our condo! That dream Hawaii vacation...we wanted it all to be true for you and so much more!!! And Homey...that is why each and everything is in the condo for you to feel at home and just love the experience of being right there by the ocean as the waves roll ashore!
Lots of aloha and we look forward to your return to paradise.
A big mahalo to you both, Darline:)
Condo was top-notch. Everything you needed to cook was available and good quality. Loved the lanai , great view and very comfortable chairs. Spent everyday enjoying the view and sound of the waves. Enjoyed 12 days of paradise.
Whoo Hoo... So excited that you appreciated and loved the lanai and all of the beauty! Our condo being top notch for our wonderful guests is number one with us!
That is why we do everything that we do as our guests deserve nothing but top notch!!!
A big mahalo to you for such wonderful remarks...I could not be happier knowing that you enjoyed your stay...especially over-the-moon happy that you enjoyed the comfy chairs on the lanai as you captured the beauty and the sound of the white foam of the waves rolling ashore contrasting with the black lava! The waves are so spell binding one can hardly leave the lanai...hence the reason for very comfy chairs! Lots of aloha and we look forward to your return...a big mahalo to you both!!!
It is all Kona and its magnificence! Lots of aloha and mahalo, Darline:)
Another Day in Paradise
Absolutely an amazing place to stay! Everything you could want is here--the view, the sound of the ocean, so many amenities, a comfy bed, walking distance to restaurants and shops, and the nicest owner ever!!
Aloha Jackee...that is EXACTLY what we wanted for you... to have an amazing and wonderful stay in Kona!!! It really is always on our mind to have an oceanfront home for our guests with all of the amenities that our guests have at their own home far away!
For while our guests are with us... our oceanfront condo is truly their home in paradise!!
So many have appreciated the king size bed which officially now has been named by many " as comfy bed"...I am just over the moon happy that you too enjoyed this wonderful bed after having a fun and relaxing day on the Big Island!!
Mahalo for such a thoughtful review...you are awesome guests and we truly appreciate your kind and caring review!!
Lots of aloha, Darline:)
A hop and skip...short... very short walk to restaurants, the village and Farmers' Market. A little further to grocery stores and of course beaches beginning with right next door and down the road! Beautiful pool/spa area onsite .with a magnificent BBQ area all over looking the ocean. A great place to watch sunset as you cook. Of course, you can also see sunset from D25 !:)
