Beautiful sunsets from the Lanai!

  • 5 of 5

Just returned from our visit to the Big Island and staying for a week in this unit. The Condo was everything that we hoped it was: on the beach with a great sunset view from the Lanai; easy walking distance to downtown, clean and well maintained. Morning coffee on the lanai quickly got us into "island time" and an evening glass of wine, looking out at the sunset was perfect way to end the day.

Dan was incredibly responsive and very helpful with suggestions on what to do in Kona. Very enjoyable experience! Thanks for sharing, Dan.

Great location

  • 5 of 5

I stayed at Dan's property for a week in early July. The property is clean and well furnished with everything you need. It was a perfect location for us as we prefer to be able to walk to places. Kona is less than a 5 minute walk. There is also a small sandy beach adjacent to the complex that is a perfect place to spend an hour or all day. Just pack up the cooler that Dan has kindly provided. The listing & pictures perfectly depict the condo, we spent every evening on the lanai listening to the waves. The complex itself was very quiet and the people were friendly. No complaints whatsoever. If I find myself back on the Big Island, I would definitely stay again.

A Most Wonderful Stay

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I just completed a 6 night, 7 day stay at Kona Reef unit D 27 and we have to say, this was our most memorable time in Hawaii; 10 visits over the past 9 years. Upon arrival to the property, we turned down Kahakai Rd and immediately had stunning views of the ocean. The property itself was clean and the grounds were nicely maintained. Parking was plentiful as there was both covered and uncovered parking. Unit D 27, which was on the 3rd floor, could be accessed by elevator and stairs. Upon entering, the unit was bright, airy, clean, and inviting. It appeared to have new tile flooring throughout (including the lanai), new paint, and a completely remodeled bathroom. The kitchen was stocked with all the necessary cookware and utensils. The dining room table seated four and the living room had a sleeper sofa. The bedroom was spacious and had a new king size bed that was comfortable; this was a plus as my husband is 6'1". I've saved the best for last, the lanai. The lanai is the real beauty of this unit, which has with a wall-to-wall/floor-to-ceiling sliding patio door that opened to a stunning view of lava rocks that rolled right into the ocean!!! My husband and I spent many hours on the lanai relaxing and soaking in the waves, ocean, and sun. The lanai was always our first stop in the morning and our last stop in the evening. We just could not get enough of it! The big plus we had was that the summer solstice began on June 21st and the waves just got bigger and louder; it was truly amazing, the best real life TV show! We cooked breakfast on five of our days, made dinner once, and we always sat out on the lanai as we wanted to enjoy the view! I'd also like to talk about the prime location of the property itself. Kona Reef is a 7-8 minute walk to all the shops, restaurants, and tourist activities located on Ali'i Dr. We spent the first four nights of our stay walking to all the restaurants Ali'i Dr. had to offer and had ocean front dining every night! If I had to make any suggestions regarding D 27, it would be to invest in blackout curtains for the bedroom cause when the sun comes up in the morning, and it comes up early, it is very bright. I would also suggest adjusting the TV settings to allow access to the internet as the TV is an internet ready TV and loaded with apps such as Netflix and Hulu. This would allow guests with Netflix or Hulu accounts to watch movies and not rent DVD's. Other than that, this was a perfect stay!

Fantastic view of ocean in clean cozy condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I had a wonderful stay in Dan's condo. The photos accurately described the unit. It was immaculately clean and well-kept, with an updated bathroom. The furnishing were comfortable--especially the fantastic king bed with luxury bedding. A highlight was the wonderful lanai directly facing the ocean. We spend many hours relaxing there with a view of the sea and surfers and the sunsets. The location was excellent--within a five minute walk to restaurants, shops, and bars. The unit was quiet, although there was some street noise as we kept the windows open for the breeze at night. So many conveniences--free easy parking, the washer and dryer, pool and spa, and wifi. We appreciate that the condo was well-stocked with many items such as paper goods, dish soap, plastic wrap, beach towels, etc.

It shows that the owners take great care with the unit and we truly appreciate the effort. Thanks so much!

Five Star plus lots more!

  • 5 of 5

I spent 2 weeks here and did not want to leave. They have added a king size bed and the place was immaculate. The condo had all the supplies for everyday living and cooking was easy with the spices available and the wounderful BBQ's.

It is very close to town and all amedaties are within walking distance. This has been the nicest place I have spent time in and will refer it to friends and family. I can't wait to return.
