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 is all a picture of paradise!

This condo is cared for with aloha...this is our passion and 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 is all your choice:).It is the Hawaii you have dreamed about and it is all yours to enjoy!!

Please mentioned, the wall air conditioner is in the living room This wall air conditioner is designed to cool only the living room.


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, 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 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 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 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'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 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 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...

You will leave different than when you 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!!!

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

Everything you need is in this condo. Just pack your clothing. We loved hearing the ocean from all parts of the condo. We left the balcony door open at night for the ocean breeze and the wonderful sound of the ocean. The owner is so thoughtful and goes out of her way to make things just right! It's a very convenient location and just a few blocks to restaurants, shops, etc. You never have to worry about driving and finding a parking place in town. We hope to return!

Owner's Response: Aloha:) How awesome that you enjoyed hearing the ocean from all parts of the condo!!!! That is just exactly what we all dream about and look forward to when we think about a trip to paradise! And I am just over the moon excited that you loved and appreciated the wonderful sounds of the ocean rolling ashore. You hit the nail on the head...being able to just leave the car at the condo parking lot and walk a short distance to our little town is a real plus for all of us... Best after having dinner and pupus at an Oceanside restaurant is just being able to walk the short distance back to our condo! No one wants to drive after a good evening out on the town! So happy that you had everything that you needed in the condo!!! That is exactly our goal for our I often say we only want happy surprises for our guests! And ...yes our absolute number one goal is for everything to be just right our most amazing and wonderful guests as they live their Hawaiian dream!!!

A taste of paradise is just indescribable leaving us all with a desire to return. I am so over the moon happy that you were left with this wonderful feeling of our condo calling you back.

It is all aloha and we look forward to your return to our condo!!!

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!

Owner's Response: .Walking in the door and hearing the surf is always one of those WOW moments! It is so unbelievable how close the ocean is and how beautiful it is as the waves roll ashore:)! As you said...It is indeed a Hawaiian paradise! How awesome that you appreciated the bed! The newer comfy king size bed has been a hit for at the end of a wonderful day in Kona the tired body deserves the best night sleep possible and I am so happy that you enjoyed a good night's sleep with all of the comforts of home It was a real joy reading that you felt the condo was like a home. ! One of our most important goals is for our condo to feel like a home to all of our guests. Another goal is for the condo to have everything that the guests could possibly need or want during their stay! Importantly, is to have the quality that exceeds all of our guests expectations making the experience truly a feeling of aloha! So glad that you appreciated the ceiling fans! The ceiling fans not only cool the condo ...they also add to the ambience of 'ole Hawaii which so many find heart warming and we do want everyone who enters to feel the aloha for aloha is in every corner and our gift to our guests! Your enjoyment is our reward and we so much look forward to your return!!! Lots of aloha and mahalo for you review, Darline
