About Stephanie

We have been visiting Hawaii for over 43 years. Stephanie lived on the Big Island for several years during the 60s. We have owned and operated hospitality properties for 22 of those. We are responsive and responsible to our guests. We are very knowledgeable about what to do, where to eat, and out of the way places to hike, beach and explore.

Stephanie purchased this condo in 2003

Why Stephanie chose Kailua-Kona

Kona Reef Resort is THE oceanfront complex. It is just a short stroll to the downtown area. The oceanfront and adjacent beach offer many opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling , surfing, visiting tide pools, spotting turtles and watching sunsets. From the lanai, you can spot dolphins, whales in season, cruise ships, paddlers and surfers. If that doesn't keep you busy, nearby Kona Village has many restaurants, shops a popular farmers' market, and art galleries.

Lovely spot on the ocean

  • 4 of 5

This condo was a great fit for us --- close to Kona restaurants and waterfront. Traffic congestion can be problematic in Kona so this condo's location allows you to avoid the car, parking, etc when checking out Kona. The condo is clean and well appointed. We didn't need to run the AC -- fans were fine. The lanai is perfectly situated for morning coffee and sunsets. We used the communal BBQ regularly. Close to a local beach. Wouldn't hesitate to return for another stay!

Paradise Delivered as Promised!

  • 5 of 5

Spent January 14 to 24, 2018 at the Condo. Everything promised in the VRBO write up was delivered!

This was our first experience with a VRBO rental and we were a little apprehensive of what we were getting ourselves in to. When we arrived condo was clean and ready to accept 2 tired travellers. Morning revealed a lanai with a truly great ocean view and a table and chairs waiting for us to have coffee overlooking everything. The lanai was also a great place for watching sunsets which never disappointed.

We were minutes from downtown Kona and wouldn't have needed to rent a car had we planned to remain only in Kona as all restaurants etc. were within easy walking distance of the condo.

Stephanie was accessible for any questions on the condo which were few and easily answered.

Would definitely be our first choice should we be back on the island.

Owner's Response: Hi Steve & Diane, Thank you for writing your lovely review. So glad your first VRBO experience was a good one. Everything you mentioned in your review are the reasons we purchased our condo at the Kona Reef. You can't beat the location for ocean front relaxing or dining plus the convenience of being able to walk to restaurants and shopping. It was our pleasure to host you and we look forward to doing so again. Mahalo, Stephanie & Jack

Great location, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days at this wonderful condo. Easy check in check and out with Stephanie. Rooms were clean and well stocked. We very much enjoyed the lanai in the mornings the pool and small beach areas. What amazing sunsets and beautiful views. Often we saw turtles at waters edge and whales in the distance. There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of the water hitting the rocks just a stones throw from the deck!

Beautiful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days in January 2018. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was there. We were both sick on this trip so stayed in the condo more than we had anticipated and it was extremely comfortable. It is within walking distance to everything on Ali'i drive. The ocean crashing outside the doors is wonderful for sleeping. We plan to stay again as soon as we can.

Owner's Response: Hi Bev & Ron, Thank you for returning to our condo in Kona again. We love that you like it as much a we do. I agree, the location, setting, etc are perfect. Just sorry to hear that you both got ill on Oahu. Not a bad place to recuperate but I am sure you would have loved to go out and about more. It's great that you have your reservation for next year. Something nice to look forward to. Take care. Mahalo, Stephanie & Jack
