"This is our 2nd time in Stephanie's condo and loved it even more than before. The sound of the ocean fills every room and really had a relaxing time ... again. There's so much to do in the area and coming back to watch the sunset from the lanai or on the rocks is just the perfect ending to each day. We hope to come again! Thanks, Stephanie! It was amazing!"

"This condo is so wonderfully located, first with it's short walk to all the restaurants and shops in Kailua Village (Kailua-Kona) but more so with its private corner on the top floor of the building and 180 degree (plus) view. You will enjoy watching the body-boarders and surfers right on your doorstep. Sunset's are spectacular. The pictures represent the property quite well so there were no surprises.
Most importantly, dealing with Jim was a true pleasure. We have never rented from such a responsive and honest person who truly wants the best for his guests. Due to a grave illness in the family, only a week prior to our trip we cancelled our reservation, not thinking we would be able to come, and hoping that during Spring Break there would be another taker. Jim was unbelievably accommodating of our situation. Luckily, we were able to come several days later and enjoy his condo for 8 of the original 12 nights. We would highly recommend dealing with Jim to anyone considering staying at the Kona Reef."

"My family of 4 (which includes 2 daughters) thoroughly enjoyed this rental. We loved being oceanfront, and close to restaurants and shops. The unit was well equipped with everything we needed. It was very comfortable and perfect for us. Sandy was wonderful and very helpful, answering all my questions. We definitely would rent here again and hope to soon."

We had a wonderful time on the Big Island. Our stay at your condo was perfect, everything that we could have needed was there and more, we felt like we were at home. Thanks for opening up your place for us to use for our vacation, it was the best!
Ocean front view, only a few steps away from the water’s edge or the pool - can't get any better than that! It was so relaxing to be able to watch the waves and have the ocean breeze flow through the condo. Waking up to the sounds of the ocean was magical. Just a short walk to downtown Kona, Huggo's On The Rocks, and Snorkel Bob's.
Going to the beach was so easy. Great snorkeling, some of the best that we have seen on any of the Islands right there in Kona and you provided the beach towels, umbrellas, beach chairs, cooler, mask & fins, and toys for the kids to play in the sand. Our little girl enjoyed the dvd collection of kids movies that was there in the condo too. The complete package!
Here is a tip about the parking pass for anyone staying here, the Kona Reef office hours are only 10-4 which doesn’t match up with check-in time or getting to the beach early for good snorkeling so we left a message with the answering service on the "after hours phone" just outside the office with the condo number and rental car license plate info. Not a big deal, just wanted to pass that on to you.
If we ever return to the Big Island we will be sure to stay at your condo again. Thanks aging for making our stay perfect!"
