"Exquisite Ocean Front Kona Condo" - You Have Arrived !!

Bedrooms 1
Property type condo
Minimum Stay 3 nights


About the property

The most awe inspiring view awaits you from our Ground Level - Newly Remodeled, Ocean Front (direct ocean access) Kona Reef Condo. 1 BR/1 BA (sleeps 2-4).

Only a few steps from and on the same level as the pool, outdoor barbeques, jacuzzi and the ocean itself. Because we are Ocean Front and Ocean Level - our view not only takes your breath away, but open the glass doors and a breeze (like only Ocean Level Can Do) will filter through the entire condo like a HUGE oversized-ocean powered fan. When you need it however, the air-conditioning is just a button push away on its own remote control. Walk out to convenient parking or choose to just walk. The heart of Kailua Kona is located within a 5 minute leisurely stroll.

IF by chance You're a surfer, LISTEN UP!

The Kona Reef complex is located right by the 'White Sands (a.k.a. Magic Sands or Lalao park)' . This small but rare, soft sandy piece of ocean front property is not too often found along the Kona coast and especially not near town. With the abundance of lush, lavish, lava rock - comes sharp and rough cut edges.

In other words, Large chunks of lava rock are not something you want to launch your board from or run it up onto either. But though the 'White Sands Beach Park' may be small, it offers up a mighty big swell....sure to keep you out there riding the waves all day. Watching the surfers is often my choice of morning entertainment as I look on from the Lanai and they're still out there to enjoy in the afternoon as well!

Speaking of our lanai; it has been completely remodeled with exquisite and comfortable furniture ; chairs with hide away pull-out foot stools that double as additional seating - dual rocking chairs for relaxing ocean side - two tables; One to dine and One to set your beverages on and a beautiful neutral print cozy outdoor carpet for your feet. Inside, new flooring, rugs, furniture, refrigerator, flat screen TVs, WIFI,cabinets, art work, ceiling fans, air conditioning, etc. are throughout. Coffee maker, blender, microwave, New refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, flat top stove and electric oven, dishes, pot, pans and all typical kitchen utensils.

The Bedroom has an extremely comfortable king size bed w/plenty of drawer space.

We have a Blow dryer under the bathroom sink for your convenience,as well as towels and a washer and dryer located in the hall closet.

EVERYTHING you'll need and more for a fabulous 'Resort Feel' stay!

Why Candace Grasso chose Kona Coast

I came to Kona the first time over 15 years go to bring my team to run the Kona marathon.

I asked my husband to come with me on my business trip as I had been sent to Hawaii many times on business but never to Kona. I had heard it was FABULOUS and we were told by a trusted friend we BOTH just HAD to go.

SO he accompanied me and after my team left, we stayed at Hualalai Four Seasons Resort and have been coming back to stay in Kona every single year since. At least once if not two or three times per year. We started immediately staying also in the village as well as the resort in order to enjoy the town of kona and also fell in love with the Kona Reef Complex. It's view, location, Pool amenities and units.

We vowed that if one day we ever found an Ocean Front for sale we'd put in an offer and just a few months ago God answered our prayers and now our Condo at the Kona Reef is no longer a dream but an answered prayer. We hope you enjoy and are as blessed by your stay as we have been!

We had the BEST time! The pictures don't even do the condo justice! Right on the water, everything you need, and a quick walk into town. Candace went above and beyond offering so much assistance and help. I referred to her recommendations throughout our stay. She gave such great suggestions and tips that I went in feeling so prepared. We would absolutely stay there again! Thank you to Candace for making it such a great stay!!

The condo was perfect for the two of us. Close enough to town yet just far enough outside of town for easy walking to enjoy many restaurants, shopping and cocktails! Candace helped with some great suggestions. Also worth noting were the lovely stocked shower amenities, ocean front pool and BBQ area. Superb in all ways...we will be back!

Amazing ocean front condo!

  • 5 of 5

We loved the condo and the location in Kona.

The place is right on the water front and even though it is in a complex, it still felt like it was just us and the ocean. The water in front is very pretty with sea turtles and five minutes away is an excellent snorkeling beach. There are lots of restaurants within walking distance and a great Acai bowl place called Basik that we frequented for breakfast. While we were there we did a diving trip and a snorkeling trip both I'd highly recommend. The owners were very sweet and helpful and gave us lots of info about the area and even let us a bottle of champagne. The kitchen is well equipped and washer and dryer really nice to have. We stayed here as a couple with our 7month old and found it great for us.

Great location! Nice view!

  • 4 of 5

This condo is located right next to the water, with the view you see in the photo. It is also easy to walk to restaurants and shops right downtown. The owner is thoughtful in sending information about the places near the condo, rental car information, et cetera. It was nice to have a lock box, as we arrived late in the evening, after 22 hours of travel. The washer and dryer are a big plus. We spent a lot of time hiking and snorkeling, so we had to shower and change often. The space is perfect for two people. The kitchen was also useful as we were able to cook a few meals, and save a little cash. We did end up renting a car a few days into the stay, and we made use of the parking pass that was also provided. The owner is thoughtful and communicative. If you are looking for more of an "at home" feel, than a resort feel, this might be the place for you!

Great location with a lovely view.

  • 3 of 5

This place is convenient to town, a very easy walk.. Loved the restaurants in town. The condo is smaller than you would think from the photos. The bathroom is very small. It has alll the basic needs if you were to cook. It worked for us as we didn't spend much time here, just a sleep and a shower. We enjoyed our mornings drinking coffee on the lanai.

There is NO BETTER location in all of Kona for a relaxing picturesque stay - than our magical, Ocean Front condo, located at the beautiful and upscale 'Kona Reef '. This is the only condo property located right in town. Our exquisite Ocean Front condo is located a mere 30 ft. from the 'Pounding Surf' ...offering what only Kona can; an absolutely polarizing view of the most vibrant color contrasts available ANYWHERE, at a single glance. The unexpected contrast of the stark, black lava rock is everywhere in Kona. You'll see it from the moment you touch down upon arrival along the runways of Kona's humble and most friendly airport, to the slabs of its presence.... that run along both sides of the main highway (if you can call it that). But it's most awe inspiring showing is its presence up and down the entire coast of Kona.

It's unexpected! it's unique and it takes a bit for your eyes to try and absorb all there is to see. First - you see the black sheen of the lava lining the edge of the water - then the myriad of blues that come with each crashing wave - to the BRIGHT green color of the statuesque palm trees that stand so majestically by. It's as if they are there to keep watch; standing guard if you will, so that the beauty will never be snatched away or stolen in the middle of the night. This is a scene you will see as you stroll into town and all the way through it. You are no more than a literal 5 minute walk from our front door - to the HEART OF KONA! In a nut shell, Kona is a small quaint little town. It reminds me of a 'Pacific Coast' Cape Cod.

Kona is full of restaurants, little shops and art galleries with local paintings of ocean life and sea turtles. In the heart of it all is my favorite place. A large (almost always open), farmers' market with the most amazing - fresh produce you have ever seen. Some of it in fact, you won't recognize.Don't be afraid to ask. The farmers that bring it in fresh each morning take great pride in their work and love not only to explain - but to offer up a taste of their goods with a smile and a great big aloha. I stop there first to fill up the fridge every time I come back to my Kona home.

Go snorkeling, diving, para-sailing, fishing, swimming, running , paddle boarding, surfing name it and more or do NONE OF THE ABOVE and just chill by the ocean or the pool or in our can do both at the same time. With our ocean front pool, there's no need to choose. Kona is what you want it to be. Your trip is truly what you want to make it. It's all there with a smile and the Aloha Spirit you may have heard about. Enjoy and A-L-O-H-A !!
