About the property

Condo, 1 Bedroom + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath,(Sleeps 2-4) Full Air Conditioning

This is one of the best deals at the Kona Reef: a clean, comfortable and recently-renovated island-style 1BR, with a great view of the big, beautiful Pacific Ocean. It’s an oceanfront view without the oceanfront price. And it it is air conditioned throughout. There are only a few units that have total air conditioning, the rest just have a wall air conditioner in the living room. For your stay in paradise, don't you want to be cool and comfortable?

To see exactly what we’re talking about, take a complete video tour of this unit by going to the Video Tour. From the main image, click the screen or arrow to the left of the main picture.

This is just one example of several excellent Kona Reef condos we own or represent, in all varieties and prices …including two bedroom and oceanfront units. If one is reserved for the dates you need, one of our others is probably available.

Of the 130 units at the Kona Reef, less than a dozen have air conditioning throughout the unit. Others have a wall AC unit in the living room, but this condo has AC for the entire unit including the bedroom. While it is cooler at night, the added benefit of a bedroom that is air conditioned can be very important on hot evenings.

This unit as well as our other condos are clean, comfortable, modern, recently remodeled throughout and completely suitable for a stay from just a few days to a month or more, with full kitchens equipped with full size appliances and all cookware and dining utensils; in-unit washer-dryers; king size beds; air conditioning as well as ceiling fans; covered lanais; large TVs with DVD players and cable, and free high speed DSL Internet with Wi-Fi and FREE long distance calling throughout Hawaii, US mainland and Canada.

The oceanfront Kona Reef Resort is without a doubt the most convenient location in Kailua-Kona; just two blocks to town, and a wonderful resort for a vacation. You can easily walk to the shops or restaurants, so you do not need to drive every time you want to go to town. Plus the resort is just 30 feet from the water with a beautiful ocean-side pool and spa; large, outdoor gas grills in the adjacent pool cabana, and a nice sandy beach just a few steps away where you can swim or just relax. It’s real convenience and value.

By representing multiple condos at the Kona Reef, if one is occupied, one of the others we own or manage may be available. We have summer specials and our availability calendars are always up to date. Just click on the 'view all our other rentals' link below.

You can reserve any condo with the 'Book It' button for immediate reservations and secure payments. You can also book by email or phone or get additional information by calling us from 9 AM to 7 PM California time. We can probably answer any of your questions, and are more than happy to do so.

After traveling thousands of miles to get to your dream vacation, the last thing you want is disappointment in your lodging. We offer up-to-date information on all our condos, and make sure they are consistent, and well maintained. That means total peace of mind that you will have a wonderful stay in a fully equipped upgraded condo. We look forward to having you stay with us -and your return business- so we make sure you are completely satisfied.

When you compare the convenience of the Kona Reef to other complexes we are sure you will choose the Kona Reef for this stay, and your return for future stays.

Could have been cleaner..

  • 3 of 5

The location is great, view is great, fairly well equipped - but dishwasher was broken, nice size lanai, livingroom and kitchen. Really small bathroom and bedroom - hardly room for one suitcase, never mind two. Bathroom tiny and no room to put anything on counter. Kitchen and livingroom were pretty clean, bedroom was OK, but the bathroom.. someone needs to learn to use a scrub brush!

Great location and facility, close to shops and restaurants. A little dated but could be easy fix.

  • 4 of 5

The location and facilities at Kona Reef are awesome. A short walk to restaurants and shops, and a central location to many attractions on the west coast makes this facility great. The pool and hot tub are very enjoyable and they have a great barbecue area. The sunsets from the front lawn were breathtaking! The unit itself (C-11) is a little dated and I felt it wasn't cleaned very well before our arrival. Sinks and tubs could have used a good scrubbing, and the floors could have been cleaner. Furniture was nice rattan with colorful cushions. The other thing I would address is the profusion of decorations and pictures throughout the unit. The majority of the pictures hanging on the walls were poor quality and there were just too many of them. Same goes for the silk flower arrangements and other items on horizontal surfaces. The flowers were dusty and limp and should just be removed. The other kitschy item could be drastically reduced. Sometimes less is more and they were all taking up prime real estate for our own items. I also felt the unit wasn't well-stocked compared to other VRBOs that we've stayed in. Absolutely nothing in the fridge (I usually find leftover condiments from previous guests), and no cleaning products. There was salt and pepper and some very old seasonings. We were staying 2 weeks and there was a charge for cleaning mid-stay so it would have been nice to have something I could use to clean it myself besides the broom. All that being said, we had a lovely stay and we did enjoy Kona Reef!

Owner's Response: Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback. It is always valuable to hear from our guests and we appreciate your suggestions. As to extra cleaning products or supplies, they are always available at the office, just by asking, but not left to clutter the condo. We look forward to your next stay. Mahalo

Kona Reef

  • 3 of 5

Stayed at Kona Reef for a few days. The complex was very nice. My only complaint would be that the unit we stayed in wasn't as clean as I would have hoped for and should be updated inside. The bathroom toilet around the bottom wasn't cleaned, the front of the microwave wasn't cleaned. The unit could use a painting and updated such as the bathroom/shower taps, etc.

Owner's Response: Thank you for giving feedback. It would have been nice to let us know about any deficiency on cleaning as we would have had the cleaner re-do it immediately. It is rare, but on occasion a cleaner does not do the thorough job that is expected, and in those instances the cleaner will return and do it properly. Thanks for letting us know.

Location location location!

  • 4 of 5

Great little condo in superb location of Kailua Kona. We were on our honeymoon and island hopping. We loved the outdoor amenities of this complex. Fantastic pool! The only drawback was the bathroom. Needs a complete overhaul and updating and good clean. Kitchen needs updating. Other than that great.
