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 Kailua-Kona

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.

Nice clean place.

  • 5 of 5

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.

Perfect place!

  • 5 of 5

We could not have stayed at a better place. Ocean front with plenty to see! Turtles below in the water, parasailing going by, cruise ships, and a gorgeous view and sunset! This condo is also equipped with everything needed to be comfortable and to cook in if you wish! K-cups were even provided!

I would definitely recommend this condo to anyone coming to Kona!
