Kona Reef condo description

Watch the Surfers from Your Lanai - Kona Reef Ocean Front Unit

Recently updated.

Light and Airy with direct Ocean Views from the Lanai, Living and Kitchen areas. Large Ocean Front 611 square foot condo with a full 128 square foot Lanai.

This fully equipped Ocean Front 3rd floor condo is located in the low-rise popular Kona Reef complex. Just steps to the Ocean and the white sand beach park next door. It has a short 3 minute walk to shops, open markets and restaurants in the picturesque town of Kailua-Kona. There is free parking for renters (both open or covered), elevators, air conditioning and secured DSL internet access (WIFI).

The Kona Reef complex offers an Oceanfront Salt Water Pool, Jacuzzi / Hot Tub, Gas Grills and Pool Side Dining area.

Note to our repeat guests: Thanks to your suggestions, we've updated a number of features in our unit. We now have a new queen sleeper sofa, reclining lounge chairs for both the lanai and living room, a security screen door to allow for easy enjoyment of the ocean breeze, and new pictures and other decorations. We’ve also gone through the unit and replaced anything that appeared to be getting older or worn such as the refrigerator, dishwasher, laundry center, shower head, lamps, and even the kitchen sink. We hope you’ll appreciate the new look and feel of our Ocean Front Condo.

Please note we have a 5 night minimum rental requirement. We do allow exceptions on a case-by-case basis to fill small openings between existing rentals (which is why the VRBO setting needed to be set down to a 2 day minimum).

              Location

              Car: Recommended

              One of the best snorkeling beaches on the island is only a few miles south of Kona Reef. KaHalu’u Beach Park lets you get up close and personal with the Green Sea Turtles (protected don’t touch) and a large variety of tropical fish.

              Some of our favorite places to go are:

              • Kona Farmers' market - downtown Kona, Wed – Sun.

              • Hilo Farmers' market - Wed., & Sat. only

              • Akaka Falls near Hilo

              • Waipio Valley (need 4 wheel drive if you actually go down into the valley – nice overlook for those like me that go for the view)

              • Volcano National Park

              • Hapuna Beach Park & many other beautiful beaches

              • Several Kona Coffee Plantations, if you enjoy coffee

              • Macademian nut farms

              • Waikaloa Village shopping center

              • South Point, the southernmost point in the US

              • There are several historical sites on Alii Street alone

              For eateries:

              • Bite Me for fresh Seafood

              • Costco, lots of local food items

              • Kona Inn Restaurant

              • Huggo's

              • Volcano House

              • Mrs. Barry's Kona Cookies

              My favorite activity is to pick up some good steak or seafood, grill it on the gas grills located near the pool at Kona Reef and sit back and eat on the Lanai of our unit, relaxing and watching the waves, surfers, boats, dolphins and other marine life.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2009

              About the owner: Bruce & Karrie Ahrendt.. Currently living in Salem, Oregon where Bruce retired from the BLM and Karrie from the State of Oregon. We're both very involved with activities at church and in the building and now operation of a Community Hall in South Salem. Karrie is originally from Mililani, Hi on the island of Oahu. After 30+ years she's slowly making her way back to Hawaii.

              Why the Owner Chose Kona Reef:
              We chose the Big Island for it's more relaxed/laid back atmosphere, not to mention the many activities available on the Big Island. Kona Reef Condos was the logical choice for a vacation rental location. Easy access to the entire Big Island as well as easy walking distance to downtown Kailua, Kona (it's shops, restaurants and Farmer's Market), as well as the beaches and other activities along Alii Drive.

              The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
              Kona Reef complex comes with a well maintained Jacuzzi and salt water swimming pool, gas grills and a central outdoor dining area with free wifi. Our unit is located right on the ocean front. The lanai lets you enjoy relaxing or eating while watching the surfers, sea turtles, whales and spinner dolphins or possibly just a front row seat for the Hawaiian sunset. We try and make our place feel a bit more like a home than just someplace you would rent to stay in. We provide those little extras like snorkle gear, a cooler, beach chairs, beach umbrella, sunscreen, boogie boards, even a pair of binoculars to get a better view of the ships as they sail past. For those needing internet access we have a private, secured wifi router for use inside our unit or on the lanai.
