"We have rented Leslie's condo 6 times over the last few years and also will be back in 2017. We come for a month and it still is not long enough. That is why we feel this place is like home.
The reasons we love this condo and keep coming back.
Spectacular view from the lanai.
Location is great only a short walk to town.
The condo is well equipped and well taken care of, very clean.
Washer and dryer in the condo is a plus.
Love sitting drinking coffee on the lanai watching the surfers, dolphins and whales.
Sun sets are so beautiful as they are different every night and you can watch them from the lanai.
The complex and the grounds are well maintained."

"First of all we were delighted to find that everything Tony and Linda said were included were in fact there. The condo was very well equipped, even if you are a snorkeler, swimmer or just want to hang. The condo was very comfortable. We made use of the kitchen and it was very relaxing sitting on the veranda eating our meals. BTW, upon our arrival, not only was there some Kona coffee, but an Anniversary for us!. The condo was spotless, which was a pleasure. The furniture was not worn very much and we could tell that these owners take pride in their ownership. I slept like a baby with the patio door open all the time and most of the windows. Never heard cars at night, just the sound of the waves. I need to mention that the grounds are VERY WELL KEPT UP. I observed the maintenance people and they were thorough cleaning the pool (I usually don't like pools because they are grunge and have too much chlorine. This pool was crystal clear, the outdoor furniture were nearly perfect condition, the towels provided large and the barbecue grills were cleaned ever day. I know because I grilled a lot. The grills were spotless, so kudo's to the management and their crew. Plenty of parking, close to the village, but not close enough to where you have a lot of traffic. Would my wife and I come here again? You bet. My wife is very picky about clenliness and all she said was this place was spotless. Thank you Tony and Linda. We really enjoyed ourselves and felt welcome

The property manager was very helpful.
The vacation rental was spotless.
I was very happy with the location.
I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental.
Overall, I recommend this vacation rental.
We stayed at Kona Reef many times in the 80's. Returning after this long, we were surprised to find it much the same (in a good way). Being 25 years older, we tended to notice the fact that the elevators stop BETWEEN the floors, which was really only an issue on the first and last days (luggage) and following our first Costco run. A silly design quirk, but not really a big problem (yet). Unit D33 had obviously been redecorated and was nicely equipped, including a lot of useful beach equipment in the deck box. The glassware was kind of "eclectic" so we bought four matching cocktail glasses and four matching wine glasses, which we cheerfully donated for future guests. Our only real issue was the cost which, once we started researching accommodations for our next visit, we found to be definitely at the high end. Obviously, we expected to pay a premium for a great oceanfront setting, but when you stay for 6 weeks, that "daily rate" adds up. We've opted to reserve elsewhere next time just because of the expense, not because there was anything wrong with Kona Reef or our unit. We decided to give up the oceanfront to get a much larger unit at half the cost. We must mention the OUTSTANDING service we got from Kona Coast Vacations. We had two "equipment malfunctions," an internet modem that quit working and a DVD player that had obviously seen better days and wouldn't play anything. In both cases, Kona Coast sent someone out immediately, both times on weekends. It took a couple of days to get a new modem from the cable company, but they brought out a brand-new Blue-Ray player within hours of our call. THAT is great customer service! For those staying 2 weeks or less, or those with unlimited funds, Kona Reef is a great choice. If you are staying longer, you might want to consider looking for units on the mauka side of Alii Drive that rent by the month."

"Rental was equipped with snorkel gear & beach chairs & beach towels which we utilized to snorkel @ Kahalu"u Beach[just 4 miles South of rental] to view sea turtles & tropical fish.
The Lanai is right on the beach which was very enjoyable.
The Royal Kona is just a 5 minute walk north of the condo. We partook of their luau & lunch @ beachside restaurant.
In fact many restaurants easily walkable from the condo[20 minutes].
The pool & jacuzzi were top notch @ the condo.
We enjoyed the washer/dryer @ the condo. Nice to return home with clean clothes.
I would definitely rent again if I return to the Big Island.
The condo complex is very quiet @ nite; conducive to a good night sleep."
