Overview

About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom (King bed) + Convertible queen bed, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

Just one of the wonderful experiences you came to Hawaii for.... an outstanding oceanfront condo to make your stay complete. Our remodeled one bedroom unit is on the second floor of the D building of the Wonderful Kona Reef Resort, really only six steps up! (Unit D14) From the time you enter our condo you will be drawn to the ocean view in front of you. Our unit is fully appointed and air conditioned to ensure your stay is completely comfortable, from the swivel chairs on the lanai for watching the turtles or surfers play, to the extra comfortable pillow top king size bed.

This condo offers the best in relaxation of the resort complex. You have the best view from your own private lanai of the ocean and shoreline, where you are not too high to not enjoy the action of the waves crashing on the rocks, but high enough to have your own privacy. Once you open the sliding glass doors to the ocean, you may never close them again until you leave, as the sound of the ocean is so wonderful and is so peaceful, it will lull to sleep every night.

In the condo you will find all the needed items for a full relaxing stay. There is a comfortable full cushioned sofa that folds out to a queen size bed, a wonderful club chair for watching the view or reading.

In July 2013 we added Granite counters and a new Stove in the Kitchen, Plantation Shutters in the Bedroom, New Carpet in the Living and Bedroom room along with new Drapes in the Living room!

There is Air Conditioning in the condo for those rare extra hot days along with ceiling fans to keep the air moving, if the ocean breeze is not enough. There is one ceiling fan in the living room, one in the bedroom and one more on the Lanai. The condo has free password protected wireless internet access in the unit for web surfing, checking your email if you wish, or working if you have to (call the condo the “far west coast office”). The free phone service includes access to long distance to all of the US and Canada. For those that can pull their eyes from the ocean there is a new 40” LCD TV in the living room with Cable access and a VCR/DVD player attached and in the bedroom there is another new 27” LED flat screen with Cable access.

The Kona Reef Resort is an outstanding resort property with a great location, from the incredible oceanfront location to the sand beach next door, Honl Beach. The resort has a wonderful pool and a large whirlpool spa. The Pool area also has tables with chairs and chase lounges for sunbathing and a Cabana party area with 4 large stainless steel gas BBQ’s for the guests to use. The BBQ area is a great place to meet other guests and share about the great experiences of each other’s adventures of the day. Parking is free and you can use the underground garage to keep your car cooler.

Our condo is an easy short walk to the shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars of the Kona Village area, which makes it easy as you don’t have to drive your car (and pay for parking) or walk back up the hill on Alii drive (be sure to take the lower back road to avoid the hill!). You may even find yourself not using your car for days as the Condo and area keeps you there and relaxed.

We enjoy the complete feeling of total relaxation we find in Hawaii. The Condo is located in such a great spot, you really don't need to leave to have a wonderful vacation. On the beach, close to town!

Great condo in a perfect location.

  • 5 of 5

Kona Reef resort is ideal because it is a short walking distance to Kona Town plus it is right on the water. There is a small beach park on the south side of the resort that provides good beach activity (sitting in the sand boogie boarding, surfing etc). The resort itself is well maintained. As for D-14 it is on the second level and right on the waterfront. With a lot of private condos in the complex upkeep on the condos varies. D-14 is one of the good ones. Be sure to select it if it is available. The condo lanai feels like you are on the water because you are only about 15 feet from it. Many things are provided just bring your food and drink and you're ready to go. The owners are easy to work with and the condo supplies a lot more amenities than typical (boogie boards, sand chairs, cooler, etc). If you can't tell I highly recommend this condo.

Loved Our Stay

  • 5 of 5

We stayed in Kona Reef D14 for 10 days in January. Loved its location - ocean front and easy walk to shops and restaurants. Visited with a turtle, watched the spinner dolphins, and even saw a breaching whale. Pretty amazing! The bathroom is a little outdated (exhaust fan is very loud) but nothing we couldn’t live with. We are fortunate enough to be able to return to this unit in early 2019 - reservations have been made💖?

Good Week, Nice Property

  • 3 of 5

This property has a great location and some nice features. The view is awesome, the bed is very comfortable, and the kitchen is well appointed and attractive. We didn't watch much tv, but it was nice to have a set in the bedroom. However, I don't think I'm being overly critical in stating that are some items which require attention. The entry screen door is a great feature as it provides cross ventilation from the sea breeze, but it looks terrible......it needs to be cleaned up or replaced. We didn't use the air conditioner much, but it is very loud and not very effective. The living room carpet is a bit dingy and needs cleaned or replaced......I know it would be a significant expense, but ceramic tile flooring would be a great upgrade! Lastly, the furnishings in this unit are sturdy and functional, but seem worn and dated. Overall, we were comfortable and enjoyed our stay. I believe that the shortcomings we noticed could be addressed without great expense to the owner.......of course this is just one man's opinion! Aloha

Owner's Response: Aloha Spencer, Thank you for your inputs. We will have the property manager go double check the condo. We had replaced the screen door and AC unit just last year, so I am surprised to see them go bad so fast. Although being an oceanfront unit, anything metal corrodes very fast with the spray from the waves, but normally will last over a year. Mahalo, Michael

Wonderful location & nice complex!

  • 4 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay here. The owner was flexible with us on checkout time, which he didn't need to be, and we really appreciated that. He was also very responsive to communication.

The unit itself is nice. Kitchen sink & counters look to be recently updated. Super clean & furniture was nice. It has a washer / dryer (though you'll need to stop by the ABC stores to get detergent to use them). King mattress was nice - as a personal preference, I prefer a firmer mattress, but this still ended up working fine and no back issues. Loved the patio. Two TVs, but we didn't much use them. The bathroom shower was fine, just a bit outdated. But it worked, was clean and had good water pressure. The biggest thing, for some people, will be the AC. The unit looked old and it did struggle to reach the bedroom. If you run hot, it might be a problem. My husband is sensitive to this sort of thing and he was fine as long as we left the AC running during the day & had the fan turned on at night, though. It also was a pretty warm Dec week while we were there. Just worth noting for those who need a cold room to sleep in.

The location is amazing. Right on the beach, patio has a great view, it's a 15 minute walk into town where there are lots of cute restaurants & bars. The grounds are great, too. Plenty of parking unlike some places. There is grass alongside the lava rocks & ocean, so you can lay out "on the beach" on grass instead of sand. We were able to see spinner dolphins from our room in the mornings as they migrated north. We also saw a couple turtles laying on the rocks. Pool & hot tub were both nice and in good condition, 4 grills were great. Even with the size of the unit, none of the common areas or grills were overbooked or crowded.

Loved our stay & a solid option for the Kona area.

Great 7 Nights

  • 5 of 5

Really enjoyed our stay at unit D14! Had one minor challenge with the bathroom tub, but was fixed next day. Fantastic 180 degree view, super having coffee, or a late day drink on the lanai.Sea Turtles in the tide pools daily. The short 5 minute walk to town on the lane way was so easy. Pool area was very clean and always could find chairs mid afternoon.

Very happy overall with the unit, fully stocked in every way. Already planning to book same unit again next fall
