About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)

You have just found your own personal, tropical hideaway …literally just steps away from the crystal blue Pacific Ocean!

This spectacular, ocean-front designer 1BR unit in the Kona Reef Resort was completely remodeled in 2007, and extensively refreshed in 2011 with new paint, new carpet, new appliances and furniture.

A look at the video tour will tell it all. The link to the video tour is located below the map and above the photos where 'Link to our other rentals' and 'Link to 360 video tour' appears. A picture is worth a thousand words, and a video is worth a thousand pictures!

This is lavish tropical living at its best, with a king-size bed (and premium mattress), slate floors, granite countertops, gourmet kitchen with new stainless steel appliances, central air conditioning, Travertine bath with a raised vessel sink, and tropical touches throughout.

The convenient, ground floor location means you have paradise at your feet: Merely stroll 20 yards out from the lanai (patio) and you’re standing in the ocean, with a picturesque white sand beach cove just a few more feet down to your left. Or go 30 feet out the front door to the pool. No winding staircases or out-of-the-way elevators.

As you would expect in a condo this luxurious, it is fully equipped with everything you could need for a comfortable stay: A fully equipped kitchen, with a full array of utensils, including BBQ accessories. A washer and dryer right in the unit makes sure you feel right at home. We expect you to return often, as most of our guests do. The Kona Reef is the most convenient location in Kona, and this is the ultimate unit at the Kona Reef.

So sit back and enjoy spectacular sunsets as daredevil surfers and playful dolphins dodge sea turtles right in front of you,... as all of you keep a keen lookout for humpback whales when they are in town.

And then ask yourself: after traveling thousands of miles to get here, was it worth a few extra dollars per night to spend your time in a place just as beautiful as the paradise that surrounds it? Of course it was, but we are actually priced lower than many other units, which shows that sometimes the best actually costs less.

Since we have multiple units, we are most likely able to fill your needs and the dates that you need. If the dates you want are not available, then click the 'View Our Other Rentals Listings' below the map, or visit our website for the availability of other units. We are likely to have the dates available that you need. Our availability calendar is always up to date, and you can use the 'Book It Now' option to confirm your dates without delay.

Call us at 888-269-3229, or Email us with any of your questions and we will be happy to give you a prompt response. We look forward to having you stay with us, and your return. Hawaii registration #W-01269720-01

Why Ken or Dia Peters chose Kona Coast

It’s by far the most convenient oceanfront condo in all of Kona. Makes it easy to monkey around.

What makes this condo unique

Steps to the ocean and town. Yet also sequestered and quiet. It is an oceanfront hideaway.

Inexpensive condo option in the heart of Kona

  • 4 of 5

This condo was in a great location to experience the hustle and bustle of Kona.

We decided to forgo a traditional resort on the Big Island because we had a ton of excursions planned around the island. The location was a great, centralized spot to call home base for five days. Tons of dining and drinking options around -- but Kona is definitely more tourist trap than relaxed luxury resort.

The view from the lanai was incredible. We were able to hear the roar of the ocean at all times -- extraordinarily relaxing. The pool was nice, and the BBQ areas were used quite a bit by guests.

The condo itself was a bit dark. The eastern facing side of the building where the bedroom is didn't get much natural light because of the garden area. It was actually nice to have the darkness because of trying beat the jet lag. Living area was comfortable and nicely appointed, but there isn't a lot of room for entertaining more than about two or three people.

My biggest complaint was the quality of the bed. The bed squeaked loudly with every movement, and the pillows were absolutely terrible. There were also tons of mosquitos in the condo -- I was eaten alive the entire time I was there. You can see the remains of squashed mosquitos on the ceiling in the bathroom. Better than cockroaches -- which we only saw dead one of in the outdoor common area -- but certainly a nuisance.

Not sure we'd stay there again, but would certainly recommend to others.

Thanks for allowing us to stay. We had a wonderful time on the Big Island!!

BEAUTIFUL & VIEW was INCREDIBLE - & apt was nice & great location

  • 4 of 5

The condo was BEAUTIFUL & VIEW was INCREDIBLE - & apt was nice & great location

I gave it 4 stars as I would not stay there again unless they fixed the shower & bathroom sink. The sink faucet barely came out into the bowl so it was hard to use without wetting everywhere AND the shower leaked ALL over the bathroom & I hated going in there with ALL wet floors ALWAYS & I was never able to wash my hair otherwise I would've flooded the bathroom.

Before booking this room - I read a similar review & their response was they fixed the shower. Curious to know how it was before AS it is still not good at all & super easy to fix - they just gotta have a ledge to prevent the rest of the bathroom floor from soaking.

The condo needs more / better lighting as well

If you take super quick showers or you don't have lots of hair as I do - then maybe it won't matter to you

Aside from that, it was BEAUTIFUL, the view was INCREDIBLE, & we had GREAT SERVICE & everything we needed (like chairs, towels, kitchen utencils, etc.....) - SUPER CLOSE to town as well

Fix the flooding / spilling of the shower into the rest of the bathroom & then for sure it would be 5 stars

A wonderful stay.

This was our third stay at the Kona Reef. This unit, right at surf side, was great. Will definitely look for it again on our next visit.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give your comments. It is always nice to hear from a guest that enjoyed the extensive upgrades that have made this the nicest unit at the Kona Reef, and one of very few that has AC throughout the unit. We will look forward to your return in the near future, as many of our guests do. Mahalo

Simply some of the best 4 days of any vacation ever!

  • 5 of 5

This property is literally steps away from the ocean. You can watch surfers (or surf yourself), parasailing and ocean going canoe races while sitting on the patio. We saw several sea turtles in the rocks by the beach and watched some of the most beautiful sunsets possible every evening. The condo has a complete kitchen, air conditioning (if you think you need it), a comfortable king size bed and easy access to the pool, hot tub and gas grills. It also has cable TV, which we never used, and wifi. A 500 meter walk takes you to the center of Kona where the dining and shopping are located. All in all, it can't be beat.
