  • Perfect family vacation

    "Rating Details: 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. Reviewer Comments: For our 45th wedding anniversary we took our adult children and grandchildren (ages 4 & 10) to the Big Island. We stay in Kona every year so last year we had a chance to explore and find the perfect place for our family vacation. The house was perfect and exceeded our expectations. The home is beautiful and fit our needs for our diverse group. Although none of these items were promised or on the inventory it would have been nice to have some quality beach chairs, an ice chest and a couple boogie boards on site. There was one umbrella, fishing pole and stroller. Late one night a smoke detector started chirping in a bedroom. We called the property management and they sent over a repair person. Although it took awhile and was inconvenient -things happen and it was addressed. We hope to return to this beautiful home - maybe for our 50th!"

  • Great value for the view and location

    "We just finished a 10-day stay in the middle unit of this 3-unit condo. The Kona area has been experiencing a heat wave and the normally wonderful trade winds were almost non-existent during our stay. We were comfortable most of the time with the many inside ceiling fans in use 24/7 for entire stay. We utilized the pool for refreshing dips a few times each day and enjoyed the huge lanai for meals and relaxing. The sunsets were spectacular from the lanai also. The unit is close to Kahalu'u Beach park that is very family friendly and has many experts on location to assist the first time snorkelers. This is an awesome area to see many turtles and colorful fish. Although the property is showing some wear both inside and out, we will definitely stay again on our next visit to Kona. The value received for the unit and the location were well worth it. Thanks again, Bill."

  • Back to Kona after 25 years

    "Rating Details: 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. Reviewer Comments: 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."
