About James & Nancy Sommers Tax ID # TA-183-073-1176-01 GE ID # 183-073-1776-01

My wife and I live in Los Angeles. About 17 years ago we fell in love with Kona. We purchased our condo in 2001 and spend as much time there as possible. It really is our home away from home and we enjoy sharing it with others. The location is great.

James & Nancy Sommers Tax ID # TA-183-073-1176-01 GE ID # 183-073-1776-01 purchased this condo in 2001

Why James & Nancy Sommers Tax ID # TA-183-073-1176-01 GE ID # 183-073-1776-01 chose Kona Coast

We wanted to be as close to the ocean as possible, we love the Kona Reef and the little town of Kona, which is just a 10 minute walk to the center of town from our condo..

What makes this condo unique

We never miss watching the amazing sunsets from our lanai. The dolphins put on a show for us everyday and whale season is really exciting. Kona is a very special place and has something for everyone.

Simply fabulous!

  • 5 of 5

You can almost reach out and touch the surf from the lanai. Every room has a sweeping ocean view. Just a quick walk to restaurants and shops. The owners, who are readily accessible, make sure everything is perfect. We couldn't have asked for a better vacation.

Loved our time at this lovely condo!

  • 5 of 5

The owner was an incredible host who shared terrific advice about fun things to do, and seemed to personally enjoy all the good times we were having. He even drew maps to special, little known beaches where sea turtles basked! The view from the condo, with its wrap-around windows, is even better than the photos, better than we imagined! The lanai IS the best place to have a drink, to view the sunset, to watch surfers and boogie boarders. The condo's amenities made everything very comfortable for us. Sea turtles fed in the ponds in the lava in front of the condo. It is an easy, beautiful walk into the town of Kona, so restaurants, bars, shops, and even the new Catholic church are just a short walk away, and right on the ocean or very close. A short or long drive south or north are wonderful beaches for boogie boarding, snorkeling, or sun bathing. We used the pool and hot tub at the resort daily too. One of the very best parts was being surrounded by the sound of ocean waves, day and night! We two couples, lifelong friends, definitely look forward to returning for another reunion.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for the lovely review. We enjoyed having you in the unit and hope you will return soon. You are right, I did personally enjoy the good times you were having. I love Kona and everything about it, hearing about your adventures made me feel as if I were with you, thank you for that. I hope it won't be long before we see you back in paradise.

Kona at it best!

  • 5 of 5

Location,location,location. The views from this penthouse condo have all you would expect. Beach, surfers, lava and palm trees of course. Sunsets are beautiful. Turtles feeding in ocean by condo. Whales flipping a little ways out. It is Kona at its best! Inside the condo has been furnished nice and kept up with care. The owners have also been more than accommodating and attentive. We will look forward to coming back in a couple years.

Fantastic vacation getaway!

  • 5 of 5

We had a wonderful stay at this centrally-located and well-appointed condo with a million-dollar view! This is indeed the best unit in the Kona Reef complex, a corner unit (overlooking the beach next door) on the top floor. Centrally-located in Kona, we were able to easily walk to restaurants, shops and the pier. The complex pool is oceanside and a great place to relax after a hot day hiking or exploring Volcano National Park. The condo itself is perfectly appointed, with everything we could have needed to make our stay on the island more enjoyable - snorkling gear, boogie boards, beach chairs and umbrellas, and even a rolling cooler. The air conditioning is top notch, and every room - even the lanai - has a ceiling fan. Comfortable beds, a well-stocked kitchen, and two full bathrooms made us feel like we were right at home. And owners Jim and Nancy could not have been more helpful, offering lots of tips on their favorite activities, beaches, restaurants, shops, and trivia about local residents. We hope to come back to this wonderful place soon!

lovely ocean views

  • 5 of 5

As frequent visitors to the Hawaiian Islands, my family and I have successfully rented wonderful condos owned by fabulous folks who properly maintain their piece of paradise. This top floor unit is everything that Jim and Nancy describe: picture perfect ocean front views with the sounds of the surf serenading in the background. With climate controlled central a/c units and ceiling fans, we were always very comfortable. The underground parking is a plus as it keeps your car cool. Would definitely recommend this unit and the owners to help make your Big Island Kona vacation special. We are a family of four: myself, my husband, 19 year old son and 16 year old daughter. The sofa bed in the living room is very comfortable. I especially enjoyed taking turns sleeping on it as it reminded me of my earlier years living in a Manhattan apartment! (Except I didn't have the Pacific to rock me to sleep...)
