Aloha, 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 Keurig coffeemaker and numerous K-cups provided and also regular coffeemaker available). We also love having an evening glass of wine on the lanai while watching the spectacular sunsets. We hope you'll enjoy our home-away-from-home as much as we do.
Helen purchased this Condo in 2002
Why Helen chose Hōlualoa
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.
What makes this Condo unique
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.

Very comfortable accommodations
The Welcome binder was one of the best hints and tips section we have ever seen.
Thanks for such detail.
Great view, quiet
Our stay in this gorgeous home was so wonderful! The home was stocked with everything we could possibly need during our vacation and was spotless (and I am quite particular). Our favorite feature was the far wall of living area, which is made up of 2 huge windows and a sliding glass door that allow for an amazing, unobstructed view of the ocean. On top of welcoming us to her lovely home, when we realized we had a less than ideal flight schedule, Helen was so responsive and so accommodating. Would definitely recommend this home to anyone looking for paradise on Big Island.
Beautiful Location and Clean
You can't beat the location or view of this condo. You can easily walk to anything in town. The scene from the balcony and beautiful huge window wall in the living room is gorgeous. We saw yellow tangs and a sea turtle in the surf below us. The condo was well stocked and very clean (I'm a clean-freak and very picky!) We'll be returning, hopefully soon!
Amazing Waterfront Views
First morning we woke up to a great spinner dolphin show; at least twenty in the pod, jumping all over the place. We have stayed at this condo twice and found the sea life incredible to watch. Along with the dolphins we've seen whales breach, sea turtles on the lava directly below us, numerous yellow fish cresting each wave and once a manta ray. It's fun to watch the locals surf and biggie board Honl's Beach next door. There is a lot of boat activity between the dive boats, submarine, dinner cruises, Hawaiian outrigger canoes, cruise ships, and parasailing. It's the Iron Man swim course so often people are swimming and using paddle boards. The sunsets are stunning. The condo pool is big enough to do a few laps. It's a five minute walk to numerous restaurants. Helen and Ray have the condo very well equipped and are great to work with. This is a real find.
Great view in great location
Nice to wake up to the view every morning. Lots of beach gear.
Nice clean place.
It was clean. It had everything you would like to have plus. The ocean front view is wonderful. The one distraction was the noise from the A/C...which might just be me. For the past 6 years I have had a low tolerance for some noises however my daughter thought it was noisy too.
