Private, top floor, absolute oceanfront, lovely one bedroom condo at the highly acclaimed Kona Reef Resort!

New appliances:

Air conditioner,

Dish washer,



Elegant, large wall mirrors to bring the beautiful ocean and sunset view into the living room!

Why Kona Reef:

• Conveniently located along the prestigious Alii Drive in the heart of Kona town.

• It’s a 5 minute walk in your flip-flops down a low traffic side street (along the ocean) to the village where you will enjoy shopping, dining, nightlife, and other attractions in historic Kailua Village. Walking is better than being caught in downtown traffic, while searching for an elusive parking spot.

• It’s only a few steps to the romantic Honl's Beach; offering snorkeling on calm days, sandy area for kids and sunning, and a hugely popular surf spot when the waves are up.

• It’s one of the few Resorts to offer a heated, salt-water pool adjacent to the ocean.

• It also has a jet spa, barbecue facility & pavilion, elevators, on property and lots of free parking for guests, in a zone where parking is a valued commodity.

Why Top Floor, Ocean Front is best:

(Kona Reef has elevators)

• Best views of ocean and sunsets from lanai, living area and kitchen

• Best privacy; which is compromised on the first and second floor units

• Best security; leave the lanai door open 24 hours to enjoy ocean breeze and sound

• This Ocean front suite is 23 feet from (7 meters) the shoreline. You can watch the surfers, with occasional sightings of whales and dolphins.

What’s Included:

• Bedding includes a California King and a sofa-bed in the living room, accommodating up to 4 guests.

• Romantic décor.

• Fully equipped kitchen.

• Bath tub, with a shower.

• Soaps, toiletries, and hairdryer.

• Beach gears, beach towels, cooler.

• 48" flat screen LED smart TV in the living room and 40" new flat screen TV in the bedroom for your enjoyment.

• Living room has ceiling fan and air conditioner. Bedroom also has ceiling fan over the California King bed giving a comfortable and soothing breeze while you sleep.

• Washer and dryer in the suite, and all utilities.

• Professional, licensed property manager.

• Professional cleaning crew.

I have lived in Kona for 30 years. I purchased this condo because Kona Reef has the best location in Kona and because top floor, ocean front is the best location in the Kona Reef Resort. I take pride in my condo. I want my guests to:

• enjoy a comfortable, hassle free stay,

• feel they had one of their best ever vacations, and

• feel they received high value, at a fair price.

Kona Reef Suite D32 is managed by a bona fide property management company in Kona and is cleaned by a professional cleaning crew.

If you are looking for a superb location, breathtaking direct oceanfront view, an elegantly decorated suite at reasonable rates with a team of efficient, friendly and helpful staff to see to it that your check-in is seamless and your stay is comfortable and enjoyable, you have come to the right place!

Why Annie Sherman chose Hōlualoa

Annie fell in love with the gorgeous oceanfront view of Kona Reef Suite D32 and has acquired the lovely suite in her mother's honor.

                                                              Annie's condo was superb! We had such a nice stay. The privacy and view are unbeatable, easy walk into kona and daily farmers market! Annie was very responsive and available during our entire stay. Ocean roars while you sleep in a very comfortable bed, pool and bbq are great and this condo offers a cooler, beach chairs, snorkle sets and more. We had a lovely time and when we return we will be staying here again!

                                                              We are thrilled that you have enjoyed my condo! You both were fantastic guests! We look forward to your return! With sincere Mahalo and Aloha! Annie, Owner

                                                              Spectacular oceanfront condo

                                                              Jim M.

                                                              Don't think you can have a more spectacular view. We loved watching the activity on the ocean (cruise ship, kayaks, outriggers, snorkelers, fishermen, surfers) sunrise and sunset. Very peaceful and relaxing which is what we were wanting. We had to leave our suitcases in the living room because there was no room in the bedroom to open or store them. Parking was always a challenge if you were out past 6 p.m. Variety of restaurants and shops in an easy walking distance. A very relaxing, enjoyable week here.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you very much for your wonderful review. We are happy you have enjoyed the spectacular ocean front view of my unit and the convenience of it’s locale. The small bedroom is a fact at every Kona Reef unit. Some owners opted for queen beds to allow more room for luggage. We have a cal king as we believe guests prefer the comfort of the largest bed. Kona Reef is on prime real estates in the beautiful resort town of Kona where space is at a premium. In return, it offers unparalleled ocean front view (less than 25 ft. from the ocean) away from the hustle and bustle, yet has the unbeatable convenience of easy walking distance to restaurants, shops, tourist attractions and nightlife, etc. Other condo complexes might afford larger units but most require long commute time to Kona town in heavy traffic and none have the jaw dropping unblock-able ocean front view that Kona Reef can offer. Therefore, Kona Reef direct ocean front units, especially the few on the top floor such as mine, remain the most sort after.

                                                              Amazing location

                                                              You can not beat the view from this top floor apartment. The waves crashing right under the balcony, with the setting sun creating Instagramable views! The bed was comfy, good water pressure in the shower, and comfortable, relaxing living room. It was also great to have a washer/drier, free parking, cable TV and wifi.

                                                              There is really no room in the bedroom for a suitcase, and we weren't really there long enough to unpack, so we just had them in the living room. We thought there was only 1 beach chair, but discovered as we were cleaning up to leave, that there is a note (under a decorative hat) explaining that more beach items were available in a storage box! The kitchen items definitely could use some updating/replacing.

                                                              If you're looking for a great view, walkable to town, I can definitely recommend this apartment.

                                                              Totally enjoyed our stay in this condo. It was clean, comfortable, and within walking distance of everything that we needed. It was also fully stocked, so we spent very little out of pocket replacing necessities. Perfect for a couple's getaway. We had a blast and never contacted the owner or management company because everything was GREAT! I highly recommend this property.

                                                              Great ocean front property!

                                                              Paul R.,

                                                              We spent six nights in this ocean front condo and it was just as advertised. The condo is directly on the water, and we spent each afternoon / evening watching the sunset from our balcony. Also enjoyed watching whales offshore directly from the balcony. Overall was a great rental property for the price. We enjoyed the close proximity to town (roughly a 10 minute walk to the various bars and restaurants), and the ocean front location of the complex. We did not use the pool or other condo facilities, but parking was very convenient, and used the complex lounge chairs located directly on the water. Although it is a bit dated, the condo is tastefully decorated, and fully stocked with everything you need for a vacation on the beach. Will definitely stay here again for a return visit.

                                                              Breathtaking oceanfront views/sunsets!

                                                              Great romantic getaway! The unit was clean as was the whole complex. This condo is a very short stroll into town and the farmers market, and close to the water as you could get! Even enjoyed watching yellow tangs swimming in the waves from the lanai.

                                                              Owner's Response:

                                                              Thank you very much for posting a five-star review! We are delighted that you both have enjoyed your stay in my condo. We hope to see you again next time! Owner, Annie
