Why Debi Peterson, Terry O'Brien & Nancy Welfelt chose Kailua-Kona

The Kona Reef is located within walking distance of everything in Kona. The management of this complex is very attentive to detail and safety of all the guests. The public gardens, pool area and ocean front is immaculately tended. AND ... the view of the waves is spectacular from our condo -- we love counting the black and yellow Tang we see in the clear waves as they crest just steps off our lanai!

What makes this condo unique

The sunsets, the fresh breezes, the glorious sunshine, the views of the waves, fish, dolphins and surfers -- all are often a distraction to the good books we are trying to read! We are able to rest and refresh and rejuvenate in our special Kona time!

We invite YOU to experience this in our home!

Relaxing in the condo or out on the lanai is luxurious and refreshing. We have just purchased a new KING bed so you can plan on a good night's sleep, too! The AC in the bedroom is a bit noisy ... but it cools off the room within a few minutes and then the ceiling fan can purr quietly all night to keep you cool. In order to keep it healthy for everyone, PLEASE -- No Smoking in the condo or on the lanai. There are two designated smoking areas at the condo complex up by the road (with shade, chairs and tables). PLEASE do NOT smoke in our condo or on the lanai! There is a $200 that the condo association can levy if another guests reports smoking on ANY lanai in the complex.

Great location, wonderful condo, marvelous views of the waves and Incredible Value

  • 5 of 5

What a wonderful condo! The location can't be beat -- so close to the Kailua village, the great farmers market and of course the ABC stores! We saved a LOT by not eating/drinking out very much -- not because there weren't some good options in town but because the view from the lanai was SO refreshing and relaxing, we opted to 'dine in' (and enjoy our coffee and wine with incredible views of the water). The rental rate for this condo is VERY reasonable -- I have already recommended it to several friends. As beautiful as the pictures are on the web site, they don't begin to do it justice. Book this condo early -- Debi has a lot of us return guest so her calendar fills up quickly. Thanks Debi for sharing your condo -- it is such a great place for our trips to Kona! We enjoy interacting with you as we look forward to our fabulous trips to Kona.

Comfortable condo with great view!

  • 5 of 5

This condo was terrific. Sit on the lanai and watch the surfers, listen to the surf. The bed was firm and comfortable. The kitchen was well stocked and all of the appliances worked. Arrival and departure were easy and the condo was clean when we got there. The owner is responsive and easy to communicate with. It is clear that the owner cares about her property and her guests.

Comfortable condo, fantastic view

  • 5 of 5

My husband & I stayed here during our Hawaii vacation & didn't want to leave! The condo was very comfortable, and Debi was very friendly & responsive. The owners had thought of everything, and the location was fantastic. It was within walking distance of downtown, with restaurants and shopping, and the view was fantastic! We spent many hours on the lanai watching the waves and surfers.

The air conditioning was nice to get the humidity out of the air, but as they admit, it was a bit noisy; however, we didn't use it very much, so that wasn't really an issue. There was every Even thought we didn't use them, there was a small beach within walking distance, as well as a pool and hot tub. We will definitely choose this unit if we come back!

Great location

  • 5 of 5

Has everything you need. Great location. All the condo necessities. Parking. Sea turtles and dolphins. The bedroom is a bit stuffy with a very noisy air conditioner but we were able to sleep well if we turned off the air conditioning after cooling down the room.
