Condo D-24 at the Kona Reef is an absolutely oceanfront, 3rd floor, fully furnished, non-smoking, one bedroom condo with a complete kitchen. The lanai (balcony) is located only 30 feet from the ocean. There is terrific tide pooling and exploring in the lava rocks. And if it's sand you want, you need to walk only a few hundred feet to the sandy park next to the condo complex (ocean swimming at the park is for experienced swimmers only.)
D-24 is a recently renovated and fully furnished condo that provides a wonderful place to just sit and relax. From your lanai, watch the surfers during the day and the sunsets at night. You'll also see jet boats, parasailing, and huge cruise ships. During the winter months. you may see whales passing by and it's not unusual to see schools of dolphins. Large turtles are permanent residents in the tide pool area and shoreline.
The Kona Reef is a low-rise oceanfront condo complex located close to the center of Kona. While away from the center of activity, it's an easy 2 block walk from the condo, along the waterfront to shopping and restaurants. Fresh produce, flowers, and macadamia nuts are available at the nearby farmers' market. The Kona Airport is about 8 miles away. Kahalu'u Beach Park, one of the best snorkeling areas in Hawaii, is just a few miles from the condo.
A large oceanfront pool, Jacuzzi, and chaise lounge area makes the Kona Reef a relaxing place to stay. Four gas-fired barbecues provide a great place to cook dinner, which you can eat at the tables and chairs in the barbecue area or take back to your private lanai.
Our condo is fully furnished and stocked with our guests in mind. The bedroom has a brand new king-size bed, tropical furnishings, plenty of storage, and a TV. The newly remodeled kitchen has granite counter tops, a refrigerator with icemaker, a new electric stove, dishwasher and microwave, plenty of cookware (for barbecue or stove), and dishware/silverware for 8. It also has a coffee grinder, a rice cooker, and a blender, as well as a toaster. The living room has comfortable furnishings, including a brand new queen sofa/sleeper. There's a TV with DVD player. A cabinet contains an extensive collection of books, puzzles, and DVDs. You'll also find coolers, a boogie board, and other toys for water play. A sliding glass door covers the full width and height of one wall of the living room. And directly outside that door is the private balcony and the ocean.
Our guests have been delighted with the condo and we think you will be too.

Year Purchased: 2011
About the owner: We bought this condo a couple of years ago after owning another condo (D-3) at the Kona Reef for many years. We live in the San Francisco Bay Area and try to come for long visits to our condo a couple of times a year. While there, we usually buy some new furnishings or make some other improvement in the condo as we want our guests to enjoy the space as much as we do. We remember what it was like to rent someone else's condo for our vacation and we try to make sure that all the little things (i.e. beach chairs, coolers, etc.) are available for our guests. We also never forget that a trip to Hawaii is a once-in-a-lifetime experience for many of our guests and we want them to be thrilled with the condo they've selected.
Why the Owner Chose Kona Reef:
We bought this condo a couple of years ago after owning another condo (D-3) at the Kona Reef for many years. We were getting requests for reservations that we couldn't accommodate in D-3 because it was already booked. Now that we have D-24, we are able to accommodate more guests, particularly during the busy times. After visiting each of the Hawaiian Islands, we found that we enjoyed the Big Island the most. The variety of scenery throughout the Island is amazing and we still love to travel over to Hilo side or to the volcano or north to the beautiful beaches in the Waikaloa area. But we were especially drawn to Kona because of the sunny weather and all the ocean activities. We love to snorkel and swim and we've also done some kayaking in the area.
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Despite the many visits to our condos at the Kona Reef, we still are amazed when we arrive and open the living room drapes and find the ocean right outside. We don't feel like we have to do much to have a true vacation at our condo; just relaxing on the lanai or by the pool is vacation enough. One of the reasons we wanted to buy at the Kona Reef is because it's so close to the activity of downtown Kona without being in the middle of the noise. As we're walking the 2-3 blocks downtown, we see the car traffic and people having trouble parking and are so glad we don't have to drive and park, which most visitors to Kona have to do. Another thing we like about the Kona Reef is that we've found the other condo owners and the guests to be especially friendly so we enjoy the general atmosphere. And the condo association is constantly making improvements to the complex so we always feel that everything is being well-maintained.
