Condo, 1 Bedroom + Air Dream hide-a-bed mattress, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2-4)
This top floor, corner Condominium in the beautifully maintained Kona Reef Condominiums awaits you!
• Relax on the private lanai and watch the wave, the surfers, the dolphins, the sunsets …. and BREATHE in that fresh ocean air!
• You can relax by the pool, in shade or sun, or sit on the grass (or on the comfy chaise lounge chairs) at the edge of the ocean.
• Use the immaculately cleaned barbecues (4) to grill up fresh fish or steaks and watch the sunset - ahhhhhhh!
• There is a public sandy beach bordering the Kona Reef to the south. We enjoy going into the ocean from this beach -- easier access for snorkeling than directly out front of the condo.
• The relaxing stroll along the waterfront into the quaint town of Kailua is wonderful - from early morning (there are a couple of great coffee shops that open early, allowing you to sit outside and watch the waves splash on shore) until late at night. No need to hassle with driving - the shops and restaurants, spas and even a luau - are all within easy walking distance from our condominium.
• You can keep busy from morn 'til midnight, exploring the Kona Coast - hiking, biking, birding, fishing, snorkeling, scuba diving, exploring remote beaches, the volcano, green and black sand beaches – or just sit and enjoy RELAXING!
• Come! Stay awhile - Relax, renew your energy and soak up the beauty of creation all around!

Wonderful property and Location
All the amenities and comforts. Nothing missing. Could use a larger TV upgrade in the bedroom and also newer A/C in the living room otherwise all functioning. Will come back again.
Clean, comfortable, and a great location!
Great condo in an excellent location. The view from the large lanai is very nice. The bed is very comfortable and the unit is complete with a washer/dryer and air-conditioning. We would definitely stay here again!
We have always stayed in a hotel, so staying in a condo was new for us. I liked the location in Kona for this condo and that it was right on the water, their is even a small sandy beach next door, rare on the big Island as almost everything is lava rock. This condominium is within easy walking distance to restaurants and shops in Kona, I am glad we didn't stay at one of the others condominiums further up, because we would have needed to walk on the busy main road. When we arrived their was confusion about the code given to gain entrance (the online VRBO code was different from the paperwork-and no need to hit the # symbol to open) but a quick phone call got us in. The door was really squeaky (minor irritation).
The unit is older but clean and spacious for the two of us. We were told we might not need A/C, just open windows for a cross breeze, but we definitely needed A/C-I wish the bedroom had a wall unit and not the large floor unit, one night the tube came undone and we had to mess with it.
One thing that bothered us was the blinds to the lanai, they are obviously missing some blinds and we could not close them all the way, this should be addressed and fixed as we do like our privacy!
The last night we could not get a picture on the T.V. but although irritating, not a deal breaker.
At times I missed being in a hotel where you could simply call staff if something was wrong, and no need to clean up but on the plus side we liked having a washer/dryer and a refrigerator.
Their is so much to do on the big Island, we didn't even have time to swim in the pool although it looks nice!
We enjoyed the 2 cruise ships that pulled into harbor. We like the happy hour at Hugos just down the block (not crazy about the sister property next door).
Our last night we did a night snorkel with Manta Rays with Manta Ray diver-really fun!
Next time I would like a unit directly on the ocean side of the property that is more updated. For the price I would recommend this unit
Kona Great Location
Perfect location, great view, great little beach next door, short walk to town. Unfortunately the unit is old and in need of an update, as advertised the bathroom shower is far from being newly updated. It is in need of a total remodel compared to the other units in the complex. Plus side great grills, good pool, garage parking. The bed was comfortable, the unit was acceptable but certainly no more than 2 stars.
Thank you for your feedback on our Kona Reef Condo. We're sorry to hear that it wasn't all that you were expecting. The bathroom WAS recently updated removing the tub and adding a walk-in shower with new tile and glass bricks as the picture shows. All of the condo pictures are current and accurately depict what you will get when you stay with us - NO trick photography !!
Thank you for noting the MANY things you did enjoy about our condo and your stay, however it was disappointing that you would only give us 2 stars.
Great location and view!
My first visit ito Big Island and I am glad we were able to stay at this condo.
Convenient location to many nice beaches and downtown Kona.
Nice ocean view from Lanai. BBQ downstairs was nice to have.
Nancy was very accommodating.
We really enjoyed our stay.
We will definitely stay again when we visit Big Island soon hopefully.
We had an amazing stay - the condo was amazing!
We had such a wonderful stay at this condo! It was the perfect location to be able to walk into town for shopping at eating! And same with getting to the beach - whether it was walking to the beach or driving to one that's further away! The condo was nice and clean and a perfect size for our little family - 2 adults and an 11 year old. The pool was amazing and the view!! WOW!!!! We would definitely stay here again and definitely recommend for others! Thank you!
Sightseeing (including an active volcano!), & Birding - and RELAXING with loved-ones!
