Kona Reef condo description

The most awe inspiring view awaits you from our Ground Level - Newly Remodeled, Ocean Front (direct ocean access) Kona Reef Condo. 1 BR/1 BA (sleeps 2-4).
Only a few steps from and on the same level as the pool, outdoor barbeques, jacuzzi and the ocean itself. Because we are Ocean Front and Ocean Level - our view not only takes your breath away, but open the glass doors and a breeze (like only Ocean Level Can Do) will filter through the entire condo like a HUGE oversized-ocean powered fan. When you need it however, the air-conditioning is just a button push away on its own remote control. Walk out to convenient parking or choose to just walk. The heart of Kailua Kona is located within a 5 minute leisurely stroll.
IF by chance You're a surfer, LISTEN UP!
The Kona Reef complex is located right by the 'White Sands (a.k.a. Magic Sands or Lalao park)' . This small but rare, soft sandy piece of ocean front property is not too often found along the Kona coast and especially not near town. With the abundance of lush, lavish, lava rock - comes sharp and rough cut edges.
In other words, Large chunks of lava rock are not something you want to launch your board from or run it up onto either. But though the 'White Sands Beach Park' may be small, it offers up a mighty big swell....sure to keep you out there riding the waves all day. Watching the surfers is often my choice of morning entertainment as I look on from the Lanai and they're still out there to enjoy in the afternoon as well!
Speaking of our lanai; it has been completely remodeled with exquisite and comfortable furniture ; chairs with hide away pull-out foot stools that double as additional seating - dual rocking chairs for relaxing ocean side - two tables; One to dine and One to set your beverages on and a beautiful neutral print cozy outdoor carpet for your feet. Inside, new flooring, rugs, furniture, refrigerator, flat screen TVs, WIFI,cabinets, art work, ceiling fans, air conditioning, etc. are throughout. Coffee maker, blender, microwave, New refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, flat top stove and electric oven, dishes, pot, pans and all typical kitchen utensils.
The Bedroom has an extremely comfortable king size bed w/plenty of drawer space.
We have a Blow dryer under the bathroom sink for your convenience,as well as towels and a washer and dryer located in the hall closet.
EVERYTHING you'll need and more for a fabulous 'Resort Feel' stay!

To be any closer to the ocean, well you'd have to be in a boat! Whether relaxing over an early morning cup of coffee from our magnificently crafted breakfast bar; enjoying a glass of wine while watching one of our famous sunsets from our breathtakingly designed Lanai; kicking back with your favorite book from the big inviting cozy leather chair in the living room or just simply lounging by the best 'Ocean Front Pool and Jacuzzi' - Amazingly, you're never more than about 30 ft. from the azure blue waves - soothing sounds and surprisingly cool refreshing Ocean Breeze. We are truly BLESSED and wish to share our good fortune when we aren't able to be there! ...moreless

                  Location

                  There is NO BETTER location in all of Kona for a relaxing picturesque stay - than our magical, Ocean Front condo, located at the beautiful and upscale 'Kona Reef '. This is the only condo property located right in town. Our exquisite Ocean Front condo is located a mere 30 ft. from the 'Pounding Surf' ...offering what only Kona can; an absolutely polarizing view of the most vibrant color contrasts available ANYWHERE, at a single glance. The unexpected contrast of the stark, black lava rock is everywhere in Kona. You'll see it from the moment you touch down upon arrival along the runways of Kona's humble and most friendly airport, to the slabs of its presence.... that run along both sides of the main highway (if you can call it that). But it's most awe inspiring showing is its presence up and down the entire coast of Kona.

                  It's unexpected! it's unique and it takes a bit for your eyes to try and absorb all there is to see. First - you see the black sheen of the lava lining the edge of the water - then the myriad of blues that come with each crashing wave - to the BRIGHT green color of the statuesque palm trees that stand so majestically by. It's as if they are there to keep watch; standing guard if you will, so that the beauty will never be snatched away or stolen in the middle of the night. This is a scene you will see as you stroll into town and all the way through it. You are no more than a literal 5 minute walk from our front door - to the HEART OF KONA! In a nut shell, Kona is a small quaint little town. It reminds me of a 'Pacific Coast' Cape Cod.

                  Kona is full of restaurants, little shops and art galleries with local paintings of ocean life and sea turtles. In the heart of it all is my favorite place. A large (almost always open), farmers' market with the most amazing - fresh produce you have ever seen. Some of it in fact, you won't recognize.Don't be afraid to ask. The farmers that bring it in fresh each morning take great pride in their work and love not only to explain - but to offer up a taste of their goods with a smile and a great big aloha. I stop there first to fill up the fridge every time I come back to my Kona home.

                  Go snorkeling, diving, para-sailing, fishing, swimming, running , paddle boarding, surfing ....you name it and more or do NONE OF THE ABOVE and just chill by the ocean or the pool or in our case...you can do both at the same time. With our ocean front pool, there's no need to choose. Kona is what you want it to be. Your trip is truly what you want to make it. It's all there with a smile and the Aloha Spirit you may have heard about. Enjoy and A-L-O-H-A !!

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2012

                  About the owner: Jerry and Candace Grasso have been married for 30 years and have two daughters ages 28 and 29 and soon will be grandparents for the very first time! Jerry is a CFO and Senior Vice President of a Nationwide Company and Candace is the CEO and Founder/owner of 'Fit Is It' Inc. as well as a professional athlete, trainer and nutrition specialist. They reside in Baltimore Maryland and Kona Hawaii.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kona Reef:
                  I came to Kona over a decade ago to bring my team to run the Kona marathon. I asked my husband to come with me on my business trip as I had been sent to Hawaii many times on business but never to Kona. I had heard it was FABULOUS and we were told by a trusted friend we BOTH just HAD to go. SO he accompanied me and after my team left, we stayed at Hualalai Four Seasons Resort and have been coming back to stay in Kona every single year since. At least once if not two or three times per year. We started immediately staying also in the village as well as the resort in order to enjoy the town of kona and also fell in love with the Kona Reef Complex. It's view, location, Pool amenities and units. We vowed that if one day we ever found an Ocean Front for sale we'd put in an offer and just a few months ago God answered our prayers and now our Condo at the Kona Reef is no longer a dream but an answered prayer. We hope you enjoy and are as blessed by your stay as we have been!
