  • Peaceful well-appointed adult retreat

    "Wow - what a great vacation! Pat gave us such good communication before, during, and after. When we arrived there was a nice note from the local property manager and some chocolate macadamia nuts - nice touch. Everything was clean and there were plenty of condiments and starters for cooking in the full kitchen. It was super quiet and peaceful overlooking the golf course and you can see the ocean to some degree. We did not use the pool or even see many golfers so it was mostly to ourselves though we can see the other units wet obviously occupied. We were less than a mile from a good sized shopping center with a grocery store, movie theater, and several bars and restaurants. We only went to one of them (L&M Hawaiian BBQ) and it was good for lunch. About 1.75 miles away is the beach, with good snorkeling and boogie boarding and plenty of parking. It was about a 2 hour drive to the Volcanoes National Park which had some great hikes, and it was maybe 75 minutes to the visitors center at Mauna Kea where the stargazing was awesome. Downtown Kona was maybe a 10 minute drive. Cons: it would be tough to see what the Big Island has to offer without a car. We are car people anyway so this wasn't a problem for us, but it could be for you. The bus service is cheap ($2 all the way to Hilo!) but it runs more or less on island time. Also, this unit has no AC and got warm, particularly in the afternoons. Pat has provided several floor fans and most rooms have ceiling fans and even the front screen door locks where you can try to get a cross breeze. This was December, and I wonder what it might be in July or August. Sleeping was fine and mornings were great, but afternoons were a bit warm. Security deposit was also returned within a week of us leaving the unit. If I were coming back to the Big Island in the winter, I would definitely connect with Pat! Mahalo!"

  • Spectacular Place in Kona, HI

    "The Kona Reef Condo that we rented was the perfect set-up for us. We needed to be relaxed and comfortable the days leading up to Iron Man Championship 2016 in Kona, HI. One big requirement we had was proximity to the start and finish line for the event which Kona Reef fit perfectly. The combination of ocean and pool was most enjoyable and the use of the gas grill was extremely appreciated. The view from the outside patio was enjoyed daily as was the beautiful sunsets and the sound of the waves. My group complimented me numerous times about how perfect our condo was for us at Kona Reef. The few questions I had before our arrival were answered right away by the owners. Kona, HI was new to me and my group, Kona Reef made it very easy to get around and learn what activities were available. We were many miles from home, and Kona Reef allowed us all the comforts of home. I would highly recommend this facility if you are staying in Kona for 9 days or more. Mahalo, to Kona Reef and VRBO!"

  • Wonderful Property, Wonderful Stay

    "This condo has the nicest feel. It was one of the cleanest at which we have stayed. It was nicely furnished/decorated ("Hawaii- like," but not over the top) and well equipped. The layout is great with the two bathrooms separating the bedrooms, and the master bedroom and two walls of the living area fronting the lanai. The vaulted ceiling made it seem extra spacious. And the lanai - did I mention the lanai - it's the icing on the cake! Very spacious, nice furniture and the view absolutely can not be beat. The pool on the property was quite nice; and the property grounds were exceptionally well kept. The owner was very responsive to my inquiries. The location was a 10-15 minute drive from town. A supermarket was within 5 minutes. Parking at the complex was plentiful. It was a great location for getting into town with the action, and then returning to a peaceful place with a spectacular view."

  • Great location and view

    "The condo was nicely furnished, well stocked with pots and pans, and clean. The ocean view from the lanai was fantastic. Off-street parking was also a very nice feature in this popular locale. Within walking distance to restaurants and shops. One problem: the washing machine was broken during our 5-day stay and there were no laundry facilities elsewhere in the resort. Would have given 5 stars if not for this. Be aware that bedroom can be noisy at night due to its proximity to exterior stairs and walkway, but earplugs alleviated that easily. Would stay there again."
