My husband and I live in Southern California and we love to travel, bicycle and dance. We are both Retired and I am a Fused Glass artist. We love spending time in Kona just to relax. It's so nice to sit on the lanai and enjoy your morning coffee (New Kuerig coffeemaker and numerous K-cups provided and also regular coffeemaker available). We also love having evening glass of wine on the lanai while whating the spectacular sunsets. We hope you'll enjoy our home-away-from-home as much as we do.
Helen purchased this condo in 2002
The first time we visited Kona we fell in love with its small town, authentic Hawaiian feel. There is so much to see and do on the Big Island.
The Kona Reef is the only condo property right in town. You can walk to countless restaurants, shops and nightlife or just stoll through town in the evening for exercise and to take in the sights, sounds and music.
However, if you want piece and quiet, on our oceanfront lanai all you hear is the surf and the sunsets are fantastic. (from many of the units at the Reef -B Building and parts of C, E and F Buildings -you have go down to the beach or pool to see the sunset). We also have WiFi so you can surf the web while you watch the surf. There's never a dull moment with surfers and boogieboarders to watch, parasailers, cruise ships, turtles and fish.
Also, the moon reflecting on the water at night is mesmerizing.
We are only a phone call away if you have any questions. (You have unlimited long-distance calling to US and Canada from our unit).
Also, the Kona Reef has a very nice Oceanfront Pool and BQ area with 4 large gas grills and numerous tables. There's also lots of covered parking and a great spirt of Aloha throughout the property.
We loved everything about this wonderful condo right on the ocean. From the early morning activities on the water, which included turtles coming in, plus various surfers and boogie boarders. We sat on the balcony most of the time, and the ocean breeze kept us comfortable.
Inside, there was a lot of attention to detail with plenty of dishes, pots, pans and supplies. The location was convenient that we could walk to town, even enjoyed the once per month "Stroll" they have with the street blocked off.
Overall it was terrific and we plan to go back next year.
Thank you Helen & Ray!!
My husband and I stayed in this unit for the first part of our Honeymoon and it was well worth it! Helen was amazing and so easy to get ahold of whenever we had questions or needed something. They have thought of everything, right down to providing snorkel gear, beach chairs, and coolers! The unit was very cozy and the view was absolutely amazing! Photos didn't even do it justice. The bedroom didn't have AC but honestly it was still comfortable at night thanks to all the fans provided in the rooms. Thank you so much Helen and Ray for everything. We will definitely be sending friends and family your way and hope to one day return to this beautiful island and stay with you guys again! Highly recommend this unit to anyone looking to stay in Kona. The price is great, the unit was cozy and clean, and you can't beat the view this unit has!!
You cannot top the view from the Lanai of this condo. There is no need to dine at Huggo's on the Rocks or any of the other restaurants in Kailua-Kona if you are looking for a great ocean view. This condo(A36)is compact at 611 sq ft but has every amenity you could ever wish for and some you never thought of and room for one or two people. We had maintenance going on which was a bit disruptive(resurfacing the entryway)and had to negotiate planks for two days to enter the condo. Since we were gone much of the time except to use the condo as a home base it worked out okay. As others have commented, the bedroom is very warm for sleeping even with the fans circulating the air. It would be great to have a couch that made into a bed in the living space for cooler sleeping and you would have the wave action to block the partying of the weekend spring breakers staying next door. The view and proximity to town make this Kona Reef location unbeatable.
Owner goes out of her way to make sure everything is perfect . The unit is clean with many additional items not found in many condo rental units. Plenty of coffee supplied and a chocolate treat for you on arrival! Kona Reef unit A36. Parking is available on upper lot so only a couple steps toget to third floor location. Elevators for floors available to access pool on ground floor and trash container on second floor.
This condo is exactly as described. Could not ask for a more perfect location in Kona. The surf is mesmerizing to watch, and quite loud with the waves crashing on the reef. Condo is well-stocked. Really appreciated the Keirug coffee K-cups. Everything you would want to take to the beach is there: beach towels, coolers, basket, snorkel gear, beach umbrella, boogie board, and more. Having a W/D is very handy. The bedroom was a bit warm, but the fans help. It was also extraordinarily hot and humid during our stay. Helen makes you feel very welcome with the chocolate and local flower arrangement awaiting your arrival. And she called our second evening to see if everything was O.K. I have one suggestion and that would be to install a small safe (like you see in hotel rooms), big enough to accommodate a laptop and other small valuables. Not that I felt the area was not safe, I just like to lock up valuables when I'm not there (we have a safe at home). We will definitely stay here again when we return to the Big Island.
This place was more than advertised. It had EVERYTHING, from snorkel gear to coffee for the Keurg machine to two blenders. The only issue is the bedroom is not on the ocean so breezes were nonexistent. It was VERRRRY hot, but I don't think she controlled the weather. I would stay here again.
