About the property

1 Bedroom Oceanfront - Direct Ocean Front Top Floor

In short, this is a premier unit with a premier view. This top floor, oceanfront 1 bedroom has been highly upgraded and is located in the desirable 'D' building. The only thing more stunning than the décor is the view.

This great unit has been fully remodeled and upgraded. A gorgeous bath with walk in shower and raised sink, high end cabinetry in the kitchen with granite counters, and a tiled lanai with a spectacular view of the ocean and year round sunsets are just some of the features.

To see exactly what we’re talking about, take a complete video tour of this unit by going to the Video Tour reached by clicking the arrow or partial picture to the left of the main picture above.

It is equipped with everything you will need for a comfortable stay: a full kitchen with range, oven, dishwasher, disposer, microwave, refrigerator and freezer, and all the small appliances you would expect. There is plenty of cookware, a more than adequate amount of dishes, bowls and silverware, and more. There is a washer and dryer inside the unit, along with a large flat screen TV, with cable service, and high speed Internet with Wi-Fi. Phone service includes all local calls, plus free long distance calling to the US Mainland and Canada.

After flying thousands of miles, don't you deserve a really nice condo? This is surely the one you will want to return to again and again.

The Kona Reef is on the edge of town, just a few minutes walk to restaurants, shops, the farmers market, and more. There is an oceanfront pool, spa, and barbeque area for your use. Of course the unit also has all the BBQ utensils you need to have an enjoyable oceanfront dinner while you watch the sunset.

For reservations or additional information contact us. We keep our availability calendar up to date. We also have other Kona Reef units available.

Why Ken or Dia Peters chose Kailua-Kona

We loved staying at the Kona Reef and decided to buy a unit. We were lucky that one of the nicest units was available, and bought it immediately. It was totally upgraded, and we fell in love with it right away.

What makes this condo unique

The Kona Reef is right on the edge of Kona. You can walk to the shops and restaurants in a matter of minutes. There is no better location, and it is an oceanfront complex too.

Great view, very clean, quite. We were able to see Whale and spinners from unit. This is a very nice unit but not a Super Deluxe Unit.

Just what we needed

  • 4 of 5

So I like to start off my reviews with answering the question: Would we stay here again? The answer: Yes. Here is why: We had never stayed in Kona prior to this trip to Hawaii and selected this property based upon prior reviews. I can confirm that Amy at the front desk is very personable and helpful. The condo is very clean, furnished well and the lanai is ideal for relaxing and watching the sunset. It's an easy walk into town and all the restaurants, etc. These were our primary requirements when selecting a place to stay and this property met all those 100%. The only suggestions I have for the owners is to reiterate comments in prior reviews. First, the A/C unit seems a bit overworked in keeping the place cool. Thankfully we found a box fan in one closet that helped move cooler air to the bedroom (farthest from the A/C unit) so we could sleep better. Second, that bathroom sink is HUGE so if you need counter space for toiletries/makeup you are going to struggle a bit. I suggest swapping that sink out for something more user friendly at the next opportunity. Other than that, we loved the place and would consider it again for sure.

Fantastic view, great location

  • 5 of 5

Our stay in Kona Reef was outstanding!! Wow!! their service is fantastic from the moment I contacted the condo representatives Dia and Ken they were right on it with all the information I needed to stay at their condo. It got even better when we met Amy, at the rental office she was very pleasant and helpful. Amy also helped us booked a couple of activities and we received a discount as well. The condo is very nice and clean, the ocean view is fantastic, the place is quiet and all the tenants are very friendly. There is a swimming pool and they have plenty of chairs and about five big grills. Nice spot to watch the sunset!! Also, their location is very convenient between a walking distance to the downtown, you will find a lot neat stores, restaurants, the Kona brewery, Ah! don't forget to stop by their farmers market they have great mangoes, pineapples, avocados, great papayas and many more! I will definitely recommend this condo to my family and friends.

Great job! Thank you!!

Nice unit, good location in Kona, some things to be aware of...

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the Kona Reef with another couple who were located in a beach front condo in section A. We had a comparison and found their unit to be more desirable and would recommend their unit over ours. Our unit had a nicer refrigerator, however the door squeaked terribly whenever it was opened, a problem that really needs to be fixed. The stove was nice with a ceramic top. Our friend's unit came fully stocked with a variety of condiments for cooking, along with a supply of plastic bags, paper towels, toilet paper, etc. We had an extra roll of toilet paper and an extra roll of paper towels. That was fine, but there was zero supplies of anything else at all. So future renters should be prepared.

The bed was very comfortable and the Smart TV was nice addition (you can bring along your Netflix!). I think the biggest annoyance was the basin sink in the bathroom. It was huge and covered the entire cabinet so it was difficult to put even a small glass, toothbrush, and soap by the sink. It was so wide that it needed constant cleaning. There was little in the way of cleaning under and around the area by the sink and the lighting in the bathroom was not bright and so the mirror was pretty limiting (that can be a good or bad thing!). The large walk-in shower was very nice. Future renters should be aware there is no table or chairs inside the condo. Bar stools at kitchen counter only. There is a table and chairs on the lanai, but it is a rattan design and so is difficult to clean. You might want to bring a table cloth. Also there was very limited dusting of the entire complex, accept for the basics and I don't think I'm that picky. I don't mean to sound negative and if we had not had the comparison of our friends unit, this review might have been more positive. We would recommend our friend's unit over this one, but found this unit more than adequate and comfortable for a stay in Kona.

Loved the place

  • 4 of 5

One wish is for better air conditioning. But very clean, loved the pool. Easy walk to town. This is our second stay at the Kona Reef and we plan on coming back again some day. At the end of the trip the front desk even helped with taxi arrangements back to the airport.
