About the property

1 Bedroom 1 bath, Full Kitchen, Washer and Dryer in the unit, King bed, and WiFI

This well situated one bedroom ocean view condo at the Kona Reef is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. There is a full ocean view overlooking the pool and BBQ area,. This is an ideal unit for everyone, with no stairs to climb.

The bedroom has a comfortable king bed, and lots of closet space and dresser space for storage and also has a TV and ceiling fan. The bath is clean and modern with a tub and shower combination.

There is a washer dryer right in the condo, so you don't have to stand in line somewhere if you decide to wash some clothes. The kitchen is fully equipped and modern with everything you will need for a comfortable stay. Fridge, microwave, range and oven, dishwasher, and all the small appliances you would expect for a stay of several days to a month or more.

The living and dining area are roomy, and have an excellent view of the ocean. There is also a very large lanai where you can relax and enjoy the view and ocean breeze.

We own or manage multiple units at the Kona Reef. If one is occupied for the dates you want, one of our others is probably available. We offer three different ocean front two bedroom units, and 6 different 1BR ocean front units. In addition, we offer 12 different ocean view 1BR units. All are well maintained and comfortable. Just click the link below that says 'see our other rentals' and you will be able to view them all. Feel free to call us for more information at 888-269-3229 from 9AM to 7PM West Coast time.

Reserve early, the Kona Reef is one of the most popular location for a stay in Kona and is often sold out long in advance. It is just a block and a half from town, has a beautiful ocean front pool, spa and BBQ area, and is affordable. That is probably why so many guests return to the Kona Reef year after year.

Quiet, overlooking ocean and pool

  • 4 of 5

This unit was spacious, with most everything you need for a relaxing stay. It is technically ground level from the parking lot, but one floor up with a carpark under, in the front. (Which means no 'walk out' to pool or beach.) The deck is really big, but not very private. The decor is dated, with stained carpets in bedroom and living room, and kitchen needs an upgrade.

For the price, it was a nice place to spend a week. Close to town (about 2 blocks), a small beach right next door, or lava beach in front. Waves continuous and beautiful. The people who check you in are really friendly and helpful.

There is construction right next door so a bit noisy, but mostly just during the day when you are out in the beautiful sunshine. There are lawn chairs, cooler, and books to read in the cupboard. Overall I would stay here again, because of the location. Hopefully it will be updated with new floors and cupboards in the future.

Excellent location!

I have to admit we weren't inside all that much but when we were it had all that we needed. Pool and grounds are very nice. We really loved that we could walk to many restaurants and shops! I would stay here again~thank you!

This wonderful condo had everything the advertisement said it had - it had beautiful views, pool, hot tub, great porch overlooking the ocean, fully stocked kitchen and was close to Kona! My family and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay here!

Facility is great, unit was not

  • 2 of 5

First the good. Great maintenance company and great quality of the public areas including parking lot, pool/Jacuzzi, grill area and they fix anything in minutes. Great location, beautiful view and sounds of the ocean.

Now the terrible. Don't stay in unit OOPS VRBO REFUSES TO LET ME TELL YOU WHICH UNIT I AM REVIEWING SO MY ADVICE IS NEVER RENT THRU VRBO, although it has a great view the owners have refused to fix the problems in the unit like old cheap partial board cabinets falling apart that are so bad the doors wont close and edges are de-laminating. The fan blades in the living room are also falling apart. The carpet in the living room and bedroom is so old its hard and full of gross black stains. Bed pillows are full of stains, the bed is terrible and they have tried to fix it by putting a 2 inch foam pad over it. The bedroom has a long window above the bed and no curtains, unless you sleep with sunglasses expect to wake up at 6am every day with the sunrise. The living room curtains are so thin and white that you need sunglasses during the bright daytime sun and can't watch the waves with them open. This unit has a/c but its only one window type unit in the living room and if you want to get the cool air back to the bedroom so you can sleep you have to run it all day and on low temps which causes the living room to be freezing.

My recommendation is find out from maintenance co which unit owners have fixed their units and stay in one of them because the facility and location are great.

We spent 2 months here.

Mostly a lovely place to stay!

  • 4 of 5

We had not stayed here before. It was nice to see that what was described and photoed was accurate. Our view from the lanai was more than we expected. The property is well maintained and the staff was friendly and helpful. The condo itself was clean and comfortable. It was very well stocked and has a few items there for going to the beach.

The concern we had was the comfort of the bed and the cleanliness of the condo lanai. The bed was uncomfortable. It has a foam pad on top of an old mattress. We also used this method when we wanted to extend the life of our mattress but this is a mattress who's time has come and gone. The lanai railing, the table and chairs, and the concrete was very messy with bird droppings. We feel the lanai should be cleaned before each new tenant stays.

Kona Reef is in easy walking distance to good food and shopping. The beach park is right next door and the farmers market is less than a mile away.

Over all, we loved staying here and would stay at the Kona Reef again! We would like to stay in this unit again but probably would not unless the mattress is replaced.

I had the misimpression this was a little old and tired. NOT SO! We wee blown away when we checked in. First the Ocean View from the HUGE Deck caught our eyes. Large everything. Very well maintained and all you need. The location is just shy of 1 mile to Kona Town, restaurants are even closer with a great walk along the Beach.

They have 4 great outdoor Bar-B-Que's, a great Pool, Hot Tub, and much more. On the Beach.

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. We do our best to provide a comfortable condo, that is fully equipped with everything you need for a comfortable stay. The view of course is very good, and the location of the Kona and close proximity to town makes it one of the best places to stay in Kona. W will look forward to your return in the near future.
