About Helen


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 Kona Coast

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.

We had a wonderful stay. It was nice and quiet with a very beautiful view of the ocean. The kitchen was stocked with everything you need. It was fantastic having a washer and dryer in the unit. I would defiantly stay here again.

Any closer to the ocean you would get wet

  • 5 of 5

The condo is right above the water. If you are lucky you can see whales, dolphins and turtles all at the same time. We liked being able to walk to Kona town, to shop, have a meal or enjoy the history of the area. The condo itself had everything you would need for the perfect holiday. We spent four weeks here and found snorkel gear, beach chairs, comfortable lani furniture, every pot and pan possible. I would certainly recommend this unit to everyone

Beautiful property, beautiful location, well equipped with necessities and many extras

  • 5 of 5

Enjoyed our stay at this lovely property. View of water from spacious lanai was relaxing and beautiful. Equipped with many extras - Keurig coffeemaker, nice blender, mixer, etc. Kitchen had spices, paper products, paper plates, a cooler for picnics, ice packets. Bathroom had soaps shampoos, body lotion, just in case something was left home. Even calamine lotion, hydrogen peroxide and a small first aid kit. Information on shopping, restaurants, places to visit, even complete channel guides for cable stations. A minor housekeeping issue with the (noisy) ceiling fan was promptly taken care of.

Great location, great views, quiet, and clean

  • 5 of 5

Stayed for 5 days at the end of October and we really loved the condo. It was conveniently located near town, had a wonderful view, and was nice and clean. Helen quickly responded to any emails and had suggestions about where to get food nearby. I'd highly recommend making this condo your home base as you explore the Big Island.

Small unit, great location

  • 3 of 5

We stayed at this unit for a week. Pros: you can't beat the location. It's walking distance from downtown Kona and right on the ocean. The view is gorgeous - all water. It is the best-stocked condo we've ever stayed at, with everything from aloe gel to a Keurig coffee maker to good quality snorkel gear, and the owners are very responsive to any question or concern. It is spotlessly clean and is a great price for the location and the view.

Cons: it's small. The bedroom was clearly built with a queen bed in mind; they've managed to fit a king in there, but there's not much room for anything else. The downside of the oceanfront location is that the sound of the waves is loud and constant (it's a surfing spot), not the gentle background noise one might envision. Also, if there's no wind, it's extremely difficult to keep cool. We had a few days where we had to run the A/C (which doesn't reach the bedroom), all the ceiling fans and all of the half-dozen floor fans provided and we were still sweating. Between all that and the crashing waves outside, we had to shout to hear each other and use closed captions to watch TV. That problem is much reduced when the wind is blowing - the unit gets several degrees cooler without having to run every fan.

Overall, I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a well-priced and conveniently located home base for being out in the water, or in Kona, most of the time. If you want to spend lots of your vacation time at the unit itself, you may want to look for one that's bigger and better ventilated.
