About the property

Enjoy the waves rolling ashore! 1 Bedroom with King size bed + 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2

Located In Kailua Kona near Kona village Free fast cable WIFI as opposed to DSL.There is a security screen door so the ocean breeze can flow through the condo. 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!

This condo is cared for with aloha...this is our passion and goal...giving our guests an experience that exceeds their expectations and so much more!:)

The KITCHEN offers , a glass top stove, French door refrigerator with ice maker, dishwasher. microwave and granite counters. Our tropical condominium is fully equipped with you in mind. The kitchen includes a blender, rice cooker, coffee maker, coffee grinder, a large variety of pots and pans, loads of cooking utensils as well as BBQ equipment. 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.

THERE ARE CELING FANS IN THE LIVING ROOM, IN THE BEDROOM and ON THE LANAI. :)

The bathroom has a walk in shower and a cabinet with baskets for your personal items. There is unique art piece by a local artist that reflects the feeling of being in paradise:) It is all aloha!

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 the air flows through the condo. There are blankets in the closet if the bedroom gets too chilly for you!

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 ...

Our condo is fully equipped with 'Aloha' so your time in paradise is truly an aloha experience! :)

PLEASE keep in mind, this is a non smoking condominium and lanai.

Location! Location! Location! Centrally located in the heart of Kailua-Kona. Just a short walk to restaurants, shops, art galleries, farmers market, great swimming, snorkeling, and diving nearby.

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 fu!:). 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 mi, 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 Kona Coast

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...the differences, like the benefits, are for you to discover!:)

Excellent unit! Great View!

  • 5 of 5

D25 is in the perfect location to enjoy Kona. The unit was stocked with everything you could ever need. Very well organized with plenty of room. We spent Christmas 2016 in the unit and the whole family (4) loved it!

The beach next door was great to relax and explore.

The town of Kona had lots of stores and restaurants.

Hopefully we will be able to return in the future to D25.

Thank you Darline for being a superb host!

A tropical home away from home!

  • 5 of 5

We could not be happier with our week long stay at Kona Reef. We booked four months in advance to stay the week before Christmas and the condo did not disappoint! We heard the surf as soon as we opened the front door. We wanted a place right on the water, and this place really could not be any closer to the water. The surf crashes on the lava rock and reminds you that you are in an Hawaiian paradise. This unit is very accessible with plenty of parking for our rental car. While the kitchen is modern and very well stocked with everything needed to cook dinner, we mostly ate dinners in the village that is really just a ten minute walk away. This is a very convenient location to restaurants and shopping, and only about a 20 minute drive from the Kona airport. The condo feels like a home instead of a rental unit or hotel room. We stayed one night in Royal Kona nearby, and several nights in the Aston Waikiki in Honolulu, and neither of them came close to the level of relaxation and comfort as this place provided. The king size bed was extremely comfortable. The living room adjacent to the kitchen has sliding glass doors that open to the balcony and the ocean. Amazing sunsets! Amazing! The walk in shower felt great with plenty of water pressure and hot water. Ceiling fans kept the place comfortable during the 80 degree days and nights so we did not need the air conditioner unit in the living room. The deluxe lawn chairs, luxurious Tommy Bahama beach towels, and coolers made trips to the beach fun and easy. Darline, the owner, provided us with plenty of information regarding directions to the unit, how to make the most of our trip, and showed a true concern for our enjoyment of the experience. For relaxed comfort, convenience of location, and the sound of crashing waves, this place cannot be beat. We are already thinking of our next trip to the big island of Hawaii!

This condo has it all

  • 5 of 5

If you are wanting to feel Hawaii from your lanai and enjoy a place with beach gear available, this is it. The condo had a high end walk in shower, very comfortable king size bed and soft sheets, thick cotton towels, Izy CD, games, books, beautiful art, upgraded kitchen well appointed for those who love to cook and eat/drink from lovely colorful glassware. For the beach Darline provides comfy Tommy Bahama chairs, coolers, bags, awesome large towels for 4 and rice mats. The property has a grassy lawn with lounge chairs plus a small sandy beach, pool, hot tub and really nice BBQ area. When we arrived a personal card and 100% Kona coffee awaited us. And her upscale coffee maker amd grinder made wonderful coffee. Fridge has a good ice maker, and didn't have to use the AC at all on our 12 day trip. Highly recommend staying at unit D25 at the Kona Reef. It's walking distance to restaurants and 10 minutes to popular beaches for riding waves or snorkeling. Swam with 3 turtles our 2nd day on the island!

Best trip to Kona yet and this condo was in part the reason for our relaxation and beauty-seeking.

Owner's Response: WOW! Everything we do is because we hope and want our guests to feel just as you so eloquently expressed in your beautiful review! That is truly what aloha is all about and you said it all...from the walk in shower with the rain dance high shower head to even the soft sheets and fluffy towels...you nailed it all. Not to leave out the kitchen and its accessories as well as the beach equipment. I am so over the moon happy and excited that you appreciated and enjoyed the condo and our oceanfront lanai for dining and viewing of the water activities. It is our passion that each guest feels and enjoys the aloha and has an amazing and wonderful time while saying with us! Lots of aloha, Darline:)

Back for a 3rd time

  • 5 of 5

This was our 3rd visit to this most wonderful condo. We have stayed at units on other Islands over the last 8 years and by-far this one tops them all. Every time we visit, the owners have made upgrades to the unit. This time was replacing the Queen with a King Sized bed, a gorgeous new walk in shower in the remodeled bathroom and new lighting and light switches. The unit is equipped with everything you could possibly need for your stay. The owners have lots of Aloha and are also very hands on and extremely pleasant to work with.

Another thing this condo has going for it besides an outstanding ocean view, is that it is only a short easy walk to the town of Kailua-Kona where there are plenty of very good restaurants and shops.

We look forward to staying here again in the future as it's our most favorite place of all.

Owner's Response: Amelia and Vic, it has been such a joy having you stay in our condo! Your appreciation and delight about the condo and the amazing lanai with the magical sunsets has been truly music to our ears and why we do what we do for our guests and for the condo!

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! A huge mahalo to you! So happy that you enjoyed the amenities in the condo. We believe, it makes it alot of fun when there is so much to discover and try...it is all aloha and mahalo for letting us be apart of your aloha and joy...your sharing of your trip has made a difference for us! Lots of aloha, Darline:)
