We LOVE Kona!
Dennis and I started coming to Kona in 2000. We traveled here 11 times, staying everywhere in Kona - Kona Coast Resort, Kona Islander, Kona Alii, Royal Kona, Alii Lani,... before we stayed in, and bought our first oceanfront condo at the Kona Reef in 2004.
We found that this location is the best place to vacation as a couple - we have our coffee on the lanai, watch the morning surfers, enjoy 8 oceanfront golf courses and 12 snorkel beaches within 20 miles, and walk to our oceanfront Kailua Town in the evening to enjoy one of our 25 small local and chain restaurants.
This is the best place to vacation as a family - our pre-teen and teenage boys brought friends in the summer - and they loved being so close to town, and the surfing and boogie board beaches!
Our boys have since graduated and started their own lives, so we bought a home here in Kona and have made the big move! Our boys and their friends still raid our fridge, and hit the surf and beaches... they just fly here to visit Mom and Dad instead of flying here with Mom and Dad!
From Illinois to California to Nevada to Texas to Illinois to Florida to Hawaii... We have lived in many places - this is by far THE BEST!
Thank you for your help in arranging our stay here in your beautiful condo. We have stayed in other condos here before and yours is the nicest. We have a great vacation, just didn't get to stay long enough this time. Maybe next time?
just came back from a one week vacation in kona reef - A17 condo.
the condo is awesome, super clean, super equipped kitchen, large lanai with direct view of the ocean (litterally like 20 yards from the ocean).
the master bedroom is roomy with comfy king bed. the second bedroom is smaller, but nice with a queen bed.
there is no A/C in the unit - but you get nice ocean breeze and get lulled to sleep with waves and surf background sounds.
living room is very comforable and nicely decorated, you have one table in dining room and one table on the lanai (perfect for your breakfast looking at the ocean and the surfers).
the owners are living in Kona and we needed their help with one minor issue during our stay with a clogged kitchen sink pipe and within a few hours it was fixed - so super responsive and helpful.
the condo complex grounds is very nice and well maintained, there are four outdoor BBQ to cook your stuff an a very nice pool overlooking the ocean.
the views from the lanai are superb (sunset on the ocean directly from the lanai...)
some beach gears are included in the condo for your usage (beach chairs, large umbrella, volleyball, cooler and some kids beach toys) - very helpful.
there are some TVs in the condo, but frankly we didn`t even turn on any of the TVs during our stay - there is so much things to do and see on Big Island -.
the wifi was working fine throughout our stay.
the process to access the condo is very straightforward with a key box next to the condo door. - you get the key box code from the owner one week before your arrival - .
the next morning you just have to report back to the condo management office (opens at 10 AM) to get your parking pass and some pool towels for your stay.
this is a great place. we would go back anytime.
parking is either outdoor or underground, and we had no issues with parking space, etc..
Our first experience with a VRBO property was quite satisfactory. Booking and arrangements were very smooth. The condo is roomy for four persons, very well-furnished, and with a well-stocked kitchen. The great view is just as shown in the photo and the condo has one of the nicest locations in the complex. Air conditioning would have been nice, especially in August when we visited, but the ceiling fans compensated.
We just returned from our 6th stay at the Reef, but it was our first stay in A-17. The view from this corner unit, overlooking the pool and the surf cannot be beat. The owners/managers are fantastic. One day the TV quit working and within 2 hours we had a new one in place. We really appreciated how they kept us informed about things that might impact us (but we never were affected). The unit was clean and well appointed. It feels like it really is someone's home, not just a rental property.
Our ONLY comment is that there isn't any AC. Since we were there in June, it was hot and humid. The trade winds weren't even doing much. They provided many fans and we certainly "survived". This is the only reason we gave it 4 stars.
Thank you Sandy and Dennis for everything.
My family of 4 (which includes 2 daughters) thoroughly enjoyed this rental. We loved being oceanfront, and close to restaurants and shops. The unit was well equipped with everything we needed. It was very comfortable and perfect for us. Sandy was wonderful and very helpful, answering all my questions. We definitely would rent here again and hope to soon.
Process of getting into and paying for condo was extremely easy. Easier than checking into any hotel that I have ever been to. The condo has a Beautiful view of the ocean and sunsets. Nicely decorated in Hawaii theme. Not too fancy; just made you feel at home. I do agree with another guest that an air conditioner would make this condo A++. The condo did get a little warm and with the main bedroom in the back it was a little tough to sleep some nights when it did not cool down. The condo was stocked with everything needed for cooking and the Tupperware to store leftovers was a bonus. Owners were quick to help out when we could not get on the internet. Only had to make one phone call. We enjoyed the little tide pools too. I want the pineapple lamp shade!!! Oh and this trip was for my teenagers sweet 16 Birthday and she loved the condo! She did not want to leave.
Location is amazing, underhand stones throw to the surf and short walk to a sandy beach. Loved Pupus & Happy Hour on the balcony with a million dollar view with dynamite sun sets. AC would make this unit a five star, but the ceiling fans and trade winds worked well. The grilling station (4 units) is a hub of activity, lots of laughs, conversation and advise. The unit was well laid out and well stocked with dishes, glasses, pots and pans, etc...over looks the pool from the kitchen/dinner room side. The town with its many fine restaurants, coffee shops,bars and shops is a short stroll away. A car is a bonus, but not a necessity.
