Quite Simply the Best Kona Reef Oceanfront.

You sent a message to this manager.

Really... you can't get anymore oceanfront.

Really... you can't get anymore oceanfront. You are just a few yards from the blue Pacific. And footsteps from the pool. Enjoy awesome sunsets ...even when inside, bathed in cool, central A/C. Let the sounds of the sea serenade you in the relaxing reading corner. Surf free wi-fi at the convenient writing desk or on the plush sleeper-sofa. Rich cherry wood adorns the entire condo. Whip up a quick refreshment before jumping out into paradise... ...or go a little more elegant.  Be sure to add music from the CD library. Relax, refresh and prepare yourself in the spacious bathroom and walk-in shower. Every detail, every appointment is a delight in both form and function... ...with a graceful, tropical theme throughout. You are, after all, in paradise. A king-sized bed with a premium, pillow-top mattress awaits to soothe you. You won't believe how deep and restful your sleep will be. No winding staircases: The pool is just 30 feet out your front door... ...and a romantic beach cove right out the back and to the left Watch the surfers directly outside your door as they dodge turtles and dolphins. And a little further out, whales! (When in season). Right out the back: the restive Pacific. Out front: a peaceful sanctuary. Enjoy lush, tropical landscaping throughout the property. Prepare your meals at one of four large gas grills at the pool cabana. Relax in the spa while 'your chef' does the work... ...or help out at the spacious prep and cleaning counter in the cabana. What are you waiting for? That lucky old sun is waiting for you!

Kona Reef condo description

You have just found your own personal, tropical hideaway …literally just steps away from the crystal blue Pacific Ocean!

This spectacular, ocean-front designer 1BR unit in the Kona Reef Resort was completely remodeled in 2007, and extensively refreshed in 2011 with new paint, new carpet, new appliances and furniture.

This is lavish tropical living at its best, with a king-size bed (and premium mattress), slate floors, granite countertops, gourmet kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, central air conditioning, Travertine bath with a raised vessel sink, and tropical touches throughout.

The convenient, ground floor location means you have paradise at your feet: Merely stroll 20 yards out from the lanai (patio) and you’re standing in the ocean, with a picturesque white sand beach cove just a few more feet down to your left. Or go 30 feet out the front door to the pool. No winding staircases or out-of-the-way elevators.

As you would expect in a condo this luxurious, it is fully equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay: A fully equipped kitchen, with a full array of utensils, including BBQ accessories. A washer and dryer right in the unit makes sure you feel right at home. We expect you to return often, as most of our guests do. The Kona Reef is the most convenient location in Kona, and this is the ultimate unit at the Kona Reef.

So sit back and enjoy spectacular sunsets as daredevil surfers and playful dolphins dodge sea turtles right in front of you,... as all of you keep a keen lookout for humpback whales when they are in town.

And then ask yourself: after traveling thousands of miles to get here, was it worth a few extra dollars per night to spend your time in a place just as beautiful as the paradise that surrounds it? Of course it was, but we are actually priced lower than many other units, which shows that sometimes the best actually costs less.

Since we have multiple units, we are most likely able to fill your needs and the dates that you need. If the dates you want are not available, then click the 'View Our Other Rentals Listings' below the map, or visit our website for the availability of other units. We are likely to have the dates available that you need. Our availability calendar is always up to date, and you can use the 'Book It Now' option to confirm your dates without delay.

                            My husband and I stayed in this excellently appointed condo last week. We were so happy with the quality of everything in the condo. There are beautifully carved heavy wood doors, granite and stainless kitchen appliances. The ceilings even have wood laid in them-beautifully Hawaiian. The place is right by the ocean so that we could the relaxing sound of the waves constantly-what a delight! We would certainly return!!

We do appreciate your input, and are pleased that the effort to make this the absolute nicest unit at the Kona Reef are appreciated.

                            The location of the condo is amazing, steps to the ocean and a short walk into Kailua. The bed was very comfortable and having the in suite washer and dryer was a nice touch. The kitchen had more of a hotel room feel to it than other VRBO condos we've stayed in. We ate all our meals in the condo due to food restrictions and found the kitchen to be lacking a few basics. Even though there was a dishwasher, we never used it as there wasn't enough cutlery to get through a day without having to hand wash them (only a set of 4 knives, forks and spoons). There were 2 pots, no food storage containers, no plastic or foil wrap, no tea kettle and the coffee maker was very basic with the brewed coffee usually ending up on the counter instead of in the pot. We had an issue with the sliding lanai door being difficult to open when we arrived, but Imi, the manager of the Kona Reef complex coordinated with the owner to have it fixed while we were there. Imi was very helpful and gracious and always had a smile ready. There were no beach chairs or coolers available to take to the beach so we ended up renting from Snorkel Bob's, a block away. The complex was well maintained and clean with a nice pool and BBQ area. The beach at the end of the property is not suitable for swimming but a great place to watch surfers and boogie boarders. We saw some amazing sunsets from the lanai.

                            Recommended for: Romantic getaway, age 55+, people with disabilities, families with young children, sightseeing.

                            Manager response: Thank you for the feedback, we do appreciate it. Silverware etc does get lost and left behind by other guests and we appreciate you letting us know so we can restock those items. We will look forward to your return again. Mahalo

                            My husband and I spent five nights here with our seven year old and loved it. The sunset view was divine. A couple little things didn't work - the screen door came off track and one of the shades had to be manually rolled. But there were so many lovely little things! Excellent Hawaiian music collection, Popeye DVD (my son's favorite), beautiful decor, AC (!!!), awesome hot tub and pool, boogie board to rent from the condo assoc., nice walk to town, shopping bag to use, excellent blender, nice lighting, and local discount at the grocery store with the condo key chain. You will not regret staying here!

                            My wonderful bride and I spent 10 days in this very nicely appointed unit which is just steps away from the beautiful Pacific Ocean and spectacular sunsets. The entire complex is clean well kept and the staff is amazingly nice and helpful. The bonus of having the in unit washer/dryer is so convenient. Lets not forget location, just a short walk to Kona town and all the shops and restaurants. We'll be back for sure and thanks for a great stay!

                            We stayed the Kona Reef condo in November to get some warm weather and relaxation. When we arrive the unit was clean and homey. The condo was perfect for what we wanted and had everything the listing described. Ground floor with the ocean approximately 20-30 feet away, no stairs to climb, beautiful scenery all the time. We ate all our meals at the condo on the patio with the ocean right in front of us. The condo was nicely furnished and we felt very much at home. We would come here again. The office staff were very helpful and answered all of our questions.

                            We are 30 somethings who wanted a beautiful place that was comfortable, clean and felt quiet, but yet wasn't too isolated. This spot was it. The current posted photos are accurate and the proximity to the ocean can't be beat to watch sunsets - although note it's not a swimming beach. The actual building isn't a "resort" which we prefer, but if you're looking for amenities and services you won't find them. If you seek a well appointed cozy spot with a quiet pool/spa and walking proximity to Kona restaurants et al, plus easy driving distance to shops and quality beaches you'll be in for a treat! We'll definitely be back...

                            Spectacular view! Right on the water...literally 20 feet at ground level from the beautiful pacific ocean gently rolling up on the black lava rock shoreline. You can walk to town so easily and quickly that it takes more time to drive & park; but its also away from the city noise when its time for bed. The condo is outfitted with everything you need and is furnished so beautifully I was stunned. We did not want to leave, but we can't wait to come back!

                            We very much enjoyed our stay. Our unit was nicely decorated and appointed with everything we needed for a comfortable stay. A beautiful spot to watch the sunset. Very peaceful and relaxing beachfront location right on the first floor. Kona Reef is a great location within walking distance to the fun places in Kona. Very lovely. No complaints!

                            Aloha, we had the pleasure of staying in this condo for five lovely days last week. Everything that's posted on this site is true. It is VERY comfortable, beautifully decorated and definitely oceanfront! I loved starting my morning by having a cup of kona coffee out on the lanai. Walking distance to restaurants and shops.This place is wonderful to return "home" to after being busy during the day. We slept so well on the comfortable bed. While in Kona I highly recommend going out to see the manta rays with Big Island Divers (for snorkelers and divers). Saw at least 18 manta rays the two nights we went out. Just surreal. We went out a total of six times with them on various trips during our stay. We enjoyed ourselves so much we've already made reservations to return in December! The owners have always been quick to respond to my contacts. Really impressed! Thanks for sharing your wonderful condo! Mahalo
