Kona Coast Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 1 Bedroom with King size bed + 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

5 Star ratings 2015 and 2016 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 chair is 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!

Also in the living room there is a glass top dining table with chairs, a sofa and , an entertainment center, and a wall air conditioner which cools the living room and kitchen area.

Actually, it's preferrred by many to just keep the sliding doors open...and 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:).

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.

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!:)

Immaculate Condo

  • 5 of 5

We had a great time at this property. It was super clean and the bed very comfortable. The sheets were the nicest I've ever experienced. The sound of the ocean day and night was amazing. We walked the grounds and noticed that D25 is the nicest in the complex. It was nice being within walking distance to shops and restaurants. Snorkeling, swimming, and kayaking on the island are awesome. We especially recommend Hapuna Beach and Volcanoes National Park.

Incredible Place! Feels like a home!

  • 5 of 5

Wow what can I say about this place. It is just flawless. Everything you could ever think about needing on a vacation to beautiful Hawaii is already there waiting for you! The space itself is furnished beautifully and taken care of like a home. Being right on the beach, the refreshing ocean breeze flows right through the balcony (when the sliding doors are open), and into the condo. I could honestly just sit on the couch with hawaiian music playing, the sound of waves in the background, with the soft breeze blowing gently in and call that a successful vacation just in itself. Truly blown away.

Picture Perfect

  • 5 of 5

This was my first time at Kona Reef. I have been to Hawaii several times and this was the best condo I have stayed at. When we walked in and saw the view it was exactly like the picture in the ad, absolutely beautiful. The condo met all of our needs with every kitchen gadget you could imagine. We ate breakfast and most dinners at the condo so we could take advantage of the gorgeous view and watch all activities out on the water. The condo supplied everything we needed for a wonderful stay. Beach chairs, umbrella, cooler, beach towels and everything we could have thought for a day off on adventure. It even has a washer and dryer so you can pack light. My husband was so appreciative of the fresh bag of coffee beans so he could start his day off with a fresh cup of coffee. We enjoyed the tropical ocean breeze with patio slider door open and secure screened front door to let the air flow. Lots of shops and restaurants nearby so we didn't have to drive if we didn't want to. Even a farmer's market for fresh fruit and vegetables. The pool area was beautiful and a delight at the end of the day. I was the only one using it for my evening swim and it has a view of the ocean too. If I return to the Big Island I would definitely stay here again. Darlene is awesome and will make sure your stay is a pleasant one. Aloha!!

Best condo in Kona

  • 5 of 5

I have stayed at Kona Reef D25 for the last 5 years. The unit is clean and well stocked with everything one needs for a beach vacation. The kitchen even has a Vitamix for making fruit smoothies! The view from the lanai is heavenly! The owner is so welcoming. I feel like I am "home" every time I walk in after being away.

The unit is constantly being updated. Location is perfect for walking into town or for hanging out by the ocean. Can't wait to return next month! Free AC too which is a plus!

Peaceful Place

  • 5 of 5

We loved our time in Kona and spent most of our time on the deck reading, relaxing, and taking in the beautiful view. Felt like we could reach out and touch the water as we watched surfers and porpoise play below. We enjoyed the peace and quiet unit D-25 gave us and the unit was very clean. Darline was terrific and very informative. We are planning on returning. Thanks Jeff and Dixie

Owner's Response: Your description of feeling like you could touch the water is so beautiful and tells the story of how spell bounding the whole experience is for us..as we sit on the lanai. How beautifully you expressed what we all love about being on the oceanfront! It is so hard to leave the lanai to do anything else and who would want to? You spoke the truth...reading , talking story and just enjoying each other and the beauty all around is all anyone feels like doing..indeed .it is a special gift being on the lanai as the waves roll ashore and the birds fly from palm tree to palm tree.! Mahalo Jeff and we so look forward to your return to paradise! Lots of aloha, Darline:)

Happy from Roseville

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I have stayed here 4 times and will be coming back. We have stayed at several other ocean front units at the Kona Reef and this is by far the best. Everything you will need or expect is there and is also top notch. For instance the Moca Master coffee maker is fantastic. All the other kitchen appliances and tools are similar grade. A regular patio table and chairs are accompanied by bar stools and table just to improve the great view of the ocean (you are above the railing). The interior furnishings are all upgraded , clean and fresh. The bed is very comfortable.
