What makes this condo unique


Guestbook comments from the owner

Me and my BFF had the pleasure of staying at the Kona Reef condo of

Joe and Ann. This ocean front condo was beautiful,clean and the Sunset

was magnificent to look at. The condo is walking distance from all the restaurants, shops, hotels. Their is a beach right next door to the condo.

We ranted a car but hardly used it. Next year we will come back to this beautiful condo but will not rent a car. Down the street walking there is a farmers market, any kinda food you could ever want.

The condo was decorated really nice, Hawaii plants Hawaiian furniture

I just can"t say enough good things about this condo.

But will be back next yr and stay here again....................

Great location, lovely condo, right on the water

  • 5 of 5

We spent nearly two weeks on Hawaii, using the condo in Kailua as our home base for many adventures. The condo was exactly as depicted - right on the ocean, with a walking path on the other side of a low wall between us and the surf. It was an easy walk from here into Kailua, although the road is busy, and does not have consistent sidewalks. There was a small beach just to the south with surfers in the breakers every day. We took advantage of the nearby Kailua Farmer's market for great produce, and cooked in the condo, which was well-equipped. It was easy getting the keys out of the lockbox when we arrived. Getting the parking pass for the rental car was somewhat challenging, as it seemed the condo office was rarely open - leaving a reusable pass in the condo with the spare keys might be a better strategy. However, no one hassled us about not having the pass in our car. We'll be back!

Excellent location !

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I traveled with our 12 year old daughter had a wonderful time at your condo. Access to the ocean and grounds out the patio was an added bonus. Location was great! If we travel to Kona again we would stay here if it's available. Thank you!

We will be back

  • 4 of 5

We stayed in Unit D5 for 15 days. It was a one bed with a pull out couch but we were two people so it worked fine. The complex is old but well kept with lots of parking. The pool area is very clean and well maintained. We generally don't use the pool but this time we did and it is situated right next to the ocean with lots of chairs and loungers. Our unit was on the ground floor with an "in your face" view of the ocean, it took some getting used to it was so close. The unit was tasteful and had everything we needed. The only thing missing was an umbrella which was needed. The unit has no safe which is something we did not expect but we coped. The AC is loud but effective. The best part about the complex is the proximity to the Aliii strip, a 7 minute stroll. We walked to town every few days to shop and eat out and it was always bustling and interesting. The rocky reef in front has some great snorkelling so we heard, we did not snorkel there but saw many people in and out. Worth the effort if you can navigate your way in. The little beach next door to the complex is great. We would come back to the complex and unit as the trip for us was about getting out and doing things not the glamour of the space we stayed in.

Lovely Condo in the Heart of Kona

  • 5 of 5

The condo at Kona Reef was one of the best places we have ever stayed in Kona. A lot of thought and care was taken to outfit the unit with everything one could need during a vacation in paradise.

The outdoor gear with chairs, snorkel gear, cooler and cold bag was great. The king size bed was as comfortable as our own bed and the living room couch was super comfy and great for relaxing after a long day of excursions. The large TV was a plus, since most places have old, small TVs. The kitchen was outfitted with everything you need to prepare delicious meals.

The outdoor area with grills, tables, pool and hot tub was kept super clean and allowed the perfect area to enjoy a meal or a cold drink with the beautiful ocean waves crashing right in front of you.

Being a few blocks to downtown allowed for easy walking to all the downtown spots and easy access to the highway.

We would definitely recommend this unit to anyone visiting Kona. Wendy and Rusty put a lot of love and care in creating the perfect space for a romantic get away. Mahalo!!!

Lovely condo with a beautiful view and convenient to so much on island

  • 5 of 5

Highly recommend this place. Ideal location-1st floor w/ ocean out your door. Tastefully decorated. Lanai great for meals, sunsets & to relax. People occasionally walked by our lanai - nobody annoyed us. Fun to watch little birds, boats, dolphins & surfers. Pool area very nice w/ Jacuzzi. Going to town was a short walk & felt safe any time. Driving to any part of the island from here was easy.

Bed is extremely soft - I loved it. If you like a firm mattress, you might be disappointed. Condo was clean & bright -had coffee maker & grinder, blender, toaster & all basic kitchen essentials, as well as full-size refrigerator, dishwasher, oven/stove & Washer/dryer . Nice shower pressure.

Air conditioner worked quickly & well, although is a little loud. It has a timer & we never had to run it more than an hour before it was plenty cool for us. It made a nice white noise to go to sleep with. Fan in bedroom was nice. One of the windows in the bedroom did not close completely - the only time it affected us was when we heard the sprinklers come on at 6:30 every morning, but most mornings we were ready to get up & explore island anyway. .

I noticed 2 cabinets full of books. We do not watch TV but there were 2. Cooler provided.

Owner responded promptly when booking & when we asked for directions & code to get in a few days before we arrived.

After reading several confusing & contradictory reviews of luaus on island, we went to the Voyagers of the Pacific Luau at the Royal Kona & enjoyed it. It was nice to be able to just walk over.

Breakfast at Bongo Bens, Lava Java, Daylight Mind Coffee Company, & Green Flash Coffee-all good. We bought fresh fruit from town market for a few breakfasts. Went to Sam Choys during happy hour- they made the best Mai Tai I've ever had. Three appetizers filled the 2 of us up.

Meals at Huggos on the Rocks & Hana Hou-good. Subway -great to pick up picnic lunch before we left for day. A little disappointed with the meal at Humpy's although they had fabulous pretzels. Punaluu Bake Shop had the best Milikoi Malasadas - a donut like confection w/ icing. Thai Thai restaurant near volcano had the best eggplant/basil dish I've ever tasted. Volcano House had a nice lunch. Kona Inn was a nice meal with sunset view, but pricey. Hula Daddy did an informative tour. Hawaiian Tropical Botanical Garden was fabulous! Mauka Meadows Coffee Plantation had pretty grounds too & was closer.

Walmart & Safeway for groceries-short drive
