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 Kona Coast

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.

Wonderful condo right on the ocean.

  • 5 of 5

This was our 2nd visit to Stephanie and Jack's unit at Kona Reef - we loved it just as much as the 1st time - and have already booked our 3rd visit to this unit! The condo has everything you need for a relaxed vacation. Beautiful view from the lanai - great for morning coffee and evening sunsets. Also, Kona Reef is just a short walk into downtown - with plenty of shops and restaurants to choose from - which makes it nice when you don't feel like cooking :) We love the Big Island, Kona Reef, and this unit...perfect trifecta!

"PERFECT PLACE"

  • 5 of 5

This was our first trip to the Big Island!! After visiting & staying with family for a few days we wanted to have some time to ourselves. We knew we wanted to be close to Kona and after looking at so many places we decide this was the place for us, and we are so HAPPY that we chose Stephanie's condo it was perfect for the two of us it had all that we needed. We had no problems what so ever during our stay, it was great to wake up in the morning drinking our coffee out on the lanai listening to the surf, watching the surfers and just relaxing and enjoying the view. The location was perfect we walked into town many times throughout the day. The pool area was very nice not over crowded & we always had a spot. Also the lanai was a perfect spot to watch the "Sunset" we had a front row seat! ....One thing we did notice is when we had to use the air conditioner (and I'm glad that there was one) that it was some what loud while setting out on the lanai & it was hard to hear the TV when we were watching it , but that being said this was not a deal breaker for us. We will definitely look into availability on this condo again on our next trip, it was just "Perfect" ..... Thank You Stephanie!!!

Great location and view

  • 4 of 5

The condo was nicely furnished, well stocked with pots and pans, and clean. The ocean view from the lanai was fantastic. Off-street parking was also a very nice feature in this popular locale. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. One problem: the washing machine was broken during our 5-day stay and there were no laundry facilities elsewhere in the resort. Would have given 5 stars if not for this. Be aware that bedroom can be noisy at night due to its proximity to exterior stairs and walkway, but earplugs alleviated that easily. Would stay there again.

Owner's Response: Thanks J.Q., We replaced the washer on December 29th. Unfortunately, when Lowe's and Home Depot can't deliver fast enough it causes problems. Pllusbeing so close to the ocean our appliances, as well as almost anything else made of steel or iron, does not last long. We appreciate your patience and understanding. Stephanie

Great location

  • 4 of 5

The location of the condo is very nice, beautiful view from the lanai and close to restaurants and shops.

The pool area is nice too.

The condo is nice but we missed airo in the bedroom, it was hot. Also we found a stain n the bedsheet and the carpet in the bedroom was't very clean.

The kitchen looks good but we haven't used it at all.
