About Sandy Powers

We live here in Kona, so you don't have to worry about trying to reach a management company or call the mainland for help or questions!

Sandy Powers purchased this condo in 2004

Why Sandy Powers chose Kona Coast

We LOVE Kona!

My wife 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!

Guestbook comments from the owner

Wow! What a wonderful abode. Great location. Great accommodations. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time in Kona and the BI. So much to do and see. Enjoy the adventure. Too bad we must return to frigid Canada.



Thanks Sandy and Dennis.

Beautiful location, nice accommodations!

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo is perfect! The amenities were nice and Sandy was very responsive and accommodating. Super comfy bed which you don't normally find in vacation rentals. So nice to be right on the water and be able to hear the sounds of the waves gentle crashing on the rocks in front of the condo. Beautiful sunsets right out the back door! Walking distance into the little town of Kona, providing many restaurant options and close driving proximity to a very nice Supermarket, Costco & Walmart. Highly recommend this condo!

Perfect Oceanfront location!!!

  • 5 of 5

This was a most wonderful, relaxing, enjoyable visit. The panoramic ocean view from the balcony was exceptional. Short walk to Kona and great food, drink, and shopping. A return visit is definitely in the planning stages.

Amazing ocean views!

  • 5 of 5

Loved loved Kona! So glad I found your rental and we decided to start our trip here. The apartment it great has everything you need and more. The ocean at your doorstep is quite unforgettable and we loved having a local beer watching the sunset from here.

The town is only minutes away and walking to food, bars etc. is soo easy. We will be back for sure!

Great lanai with gorgeous views.

  • 4 of 5

I loved the view with the ocean right outside the lanai. The pool is right next to the condo so there is some foot traffic getting into and out of the pool and people walking along the ocean edge. There was not much noise from the pool in the afternoon so it was quiet even with the close proximity. The inside is great with lovely kitchen, furniture and everything we needed to use. We did not use the pool grills but the close distance is a plus for people wanting to grill. The bed is very comfortable and the a/c is so great for the afternoon heat. I have to mention the lanai again because I started and ended each day on the lanai. In fact I sat more there than inside the condo. The ocean waves were magnificent. Saw dolphin pods and a turtle in the water just outside the condo.

Perfect location. Great for kids as the pool is right next door. Very secure.

  • 5 of 5

We enjoyed our stay! We loved being so close to the water and pool. Rose the housekeeper was a sweetheart and let us check in early. Does have the feel of a heavily used rental.

We Miss It

  • 5 of 5

We've been coming to Kona for the last six years, and always stay at Kona Reef. Dennis and Sandy's condo was lovely, clean, and well stocked. There are boogie boards in the cupboard on the lanai, and snorkeling gear in the hall closet. We left two sweatshirts in that closet on the top shelf for anyone else to use. We snatched them up from Salvation Army and they came in great use stargazing at Mauna Kea. Anyway, I miss, miss, miss their condo, and waking up the call of the ocean, and walking through the town. They are so lucky to live there! I wish this condo were mine! =) What a cozy place!
