Kona Reef condo description

Where the ocean greets lava and sand, and palm trees line a perfect oasis, awaits the Kona Reef. When it comes to our Kona vacation rental, it doubles as a dream come true. Situated just south of Kona Village on the golden Kona Coast. Our one bedroom condo suite feels like an exclusive spot on the island designed just for you. The swimming pool is set near the ocean, making it a convenient Mai Tai sunset spot. Soak in the jet spa, or relax on the sun deck with a book. Later, barbeque or meet up with friends at the party pavilion. Big Island golf and tennis are right nearby, as is irresistibly quaint Kailua-Kona Town – a historic little fishing village filled with restaurants, shops, historical and religious sites, and incredible seawall sunsets. How close is it? Let’s just say, your transportation is a pair of flip-flops.

Best of all, our vacation rental is close to the area’s most popular Big Island attractions. Drive the dramatic coastline and you’re sure to hit most of them. Visit the City of Refuge and Puuhonua o Honaunau National Historic Park. Snorkel Kealakekua Bay. Stop at macadamia nut farms, coffee plantations, botanical gardens, historic churches, and spectacular lookouts.

                  • King Kamehameha the Great loved to visit Kailua-Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. You will, too. Start your day sipping locally grown Kona coffee. Then set out on Alii Drive, where you can shop boutiques, dine or simply look out over the bay. Or, get an early start and take the two-and-a-half-hour drive to Hawaiian Volcanoes National Park and the most active volcano in the world. It is at the beaches, however, where you’ll find the most fun. Hit the surf on boat or board, or dip under the clear water for a world-class scuba adventure. But don’t forget to come up for an intoxicating sunset at a place fit for royalty—Kona....moreless
