"My husband and I stayed in this condo for 10 days in late October/Early November. This was a 22nd wedding anniversary trip, so it was just the two of us. The condo was perfect. Kona Reef is excellently located near all the action in Kona. We were able to walk to dinner, shopping, and morning coffee. There was always plenty of parking for our rental car too. The condo complex is very well maintained, and super clean. The pool and hot tub were perfect too! All overlooking the ocean. The waves are right there, and you can hear them from inside the condo and watch them from the lanai. We did have a little problem getting into the condo when we first arrived, but turns out it was my problem, not the owner's problem. Be sure to watch for the email with the entry information! I called Dennis and had to leave a voice message, but we figured it out and called him back to leave an "it's all okay" message. He called back as soon as he could to make sure were in and all was well.
Dennis and Peggy's condo is tastefully decorated, clean, and stocked with everything you might need. All the kitchen accessories and tools, two sizes of coolers for packed lunches on road trips, bathroom accessories, laundry, television, wireless, beach chairs, beach towels, boogie boards, and more. I'm pretty picky about my bed pillows, and there were even plenty of those and they were perfect! We didn't spend much time inside, but when we did, it was everything we needed.
We loved sitting out on the lanai first thing in the mornings with our coffee, watching the sunrise, and watching and listening to the waves. You can see surfers, boogie boarders, boats, and dolphins from the lanai. We didn't cook dinner much, but were happy to find the pizza pan one evening to cook our pizza on. Mostly we only used the kitchen for breakfast, lunch, and to make cocktails. :-)
The pool and hot tub were cleaned every morning by the groundskeeper, and the outside grills too. We talked about grilling out several times, but just never did. Again, all overlooking the ocean. Most of the people around the pool seemed like 60 somethings, although there were plenty of families with younger children. The last weekend we were there, there was a football team, maybe 5th or 6th graders(?), but they weren't there all the time, and were pretty well behaved.
Over all, we really enjoyed our trip, and the condo was perfect. We couldn't have asked for anything better."
