It was such a beautiful place, we wanted to write a song about it.We had everything we needed! So convenient too!
When I go anywhere it’s the view. This place had a fantastic view, full tub for soaking and all the amenities.
Close to everything, easy walking and the ocean is right off your lanai.
Great location, could easily walk to places, which we loved not having to find parking. The place had everything we needed. The view from the lanai was perfect, saw whales and a pod of dolphins swim by. If I had any cons with the condo, it would be that I wish there were more hangers in the closet. Another pro, my husband loved that it had a coffee grinder to enjoy his Kona coffee!
We have stayed at the Kona Reef many times and the location of the unit is very nice. Overall though, compared to other units, D32 needs some work. Nothing major, but things like the exhaust fan in the bathroom and the light and fan in the living not working. Also, we could not find a way to turn on the light on the lanai. None of these issues would keep us from renting the unit again, but it probably would be one of our first choices.
Clean Cozy Great Pool Great Barbecue
Needs updating and a new cleaning crew. Curtains were so dusty we couldn’t close them. I’m picky and it wasn’t clean to my expectations. Great location with friendly neighbors. Only one set of keys made things difficult and when I called the property management they told me they were aware of that. Never received any extra sets of keys.
Loved this place. Scenery was perfect. Location perfect.

The condo is as described. Best is the view and within walking distance to the village.
We LOVED this place, RIGHT on the water - simply everything we hoped for, for the two of us for our 12 day stay, clean and comfortable!! For our meals, we cooked at "home", had everything we needed, walked a little bit for some choices or a little bit further for A LOT of choices in Kona proper - for average active people it's that close for all the shopping and excursions! We enjoyed the pool too - this property is as it IS as viewed in pictures, wifi worked great as well
All was as expected by the ad and reviews...nice firm bed...loved it!!!! Slept very well...and it was excellent for our honeymoon!!!
The condo was in a great location, was clean, had everything we needed, and was adorably decorated! We travelled for our honeymoon with family who stayed at the same resort, so having the sleeper couch for nights my daughter stayed with us was perfect and she thought it was very comfortable! Very enjoyable stay, and the binder full of info on the condo rules and things to do around Kona was very helpful.
Great location and loved the views of the ocean! We were able to easily walk into town from the condo, and the pool was great too!
Rooms were less than clean, towels smelled bad and were not clean, TV in living room was not working, TV in bedroom CLOSET would not bring in live TV shows, property management was difficult to reach and reported problems were not handled effectively.
A transformational stay. Wonderfully open feel of the mirrors walls lit up the room with the soft light that filtered in through the big glass sliding doors. Sounds of the waves drowned or all other noise to perfect solitude. Half a mile walk to famous Ali'i Drive stores and restaurants
Perfect location with Ocean views and sounds. Unit may be small for four person stay as there is a lot of furniture. The Lanai makes the unit feel bigger. We have stayed at Kona Reef numerous times and it has always been well maintained and in a great location.
Just what I wanted, a place where I can watch and hear the waves and watch surfers and dolphins alike. The unit supplied what we needed and was at a good location. We could easily walk to the markets. The interior is dated although we weren't indoors much. Probably the hardest part was the temp of the bedroom at night even with the living room ac unit on, was too high to sleep well.
D32 perfect for a couple! Small, quaint, great location and King bed! Ocean front Lanai is wonderful! We were able to walk into town in 5 minutes! Great happy hour at On The Rocks! Annie perfect host! Highly recommend!
We had another great trip to this property and unit. This is a unique unit with character and a spectacular view and location. We walked to town daily and enjoyed spending time on the lanai. The Kona Reef amenities are great but the pool and property were more crowded this time. We didn't realize Spring Break was still ongoing! The unit met all of our needs and we would recommend others staying here. We had a great time! Mahalo!
Everything was great. Thank you, Ann!
Our stay here was fantastic. This is an excellent location being near to the main strip, but far enough away for a little more peace and quiet. Incredible balcony view of the ocean. Highly recommend. Thank you so much for everything!!
Great location in Kona. If only the weather had cooperated 😢
We get up in the morning, and my wife sits out on the lanai and watches the waves crash on the rocks right below. I fix coffee, papaya, and toast. We then plan our day.
We're a couple of miles from the snorkle beach near the end of Alii Drive. Within walking distance of about six different restaurants, yet far enough you can't hear the sounds of the night time partying there.
All in all, this is a great place to stay. We'll be planning our next trip to return here.
funky nice one bedroom, the bedroom does not have AC FYI. I would also bring my own pillow ;) plenty of fans to use in there. Great location to walk to town.
Was a nice unit. Bed was comfortable. The views from the balcony were fantastic for viewing the sunsets. It's also relaxing to watch the boats. Pool area was nice and clean as was the grilling area. Kitchen area had plenty of utensils and cooking pans. Washer and dryer worked out nicely. AC unit kept it comfortable when we were in the unit. Basically like having a little apartment away from home. The downtown area was within walking distance as well. Would definitely stay there again.
Overall we enjoyed the apartment....
We walked around the pool area. There were BBQ's and a medium size pool. We didn't use either, it was a small area but clean! There is also a green space along the rock retaining wall that people enjoyed watching the sunset from we noticed from the patio.
Pros: The location of ocean front view was an A+ rating! We enjoyed watching the sunset from the patio. It was nice they're 2 beach chairs, small ice chest and umbrella (although on its last leg so needs to be replaced) for a beach day. Walking distance to Huggo's which is a great restaurant and across from this are many other stores and other restaurants. Washer and Dryer was nice to have and appreciated. The couch is also comfortable. We didn't use the TV so not sure about this. The apartment has flair of a mix of cultures and colorful.
Cons: The bed is extremely FIRM FIRM FIRM! If you like this type of mattress then you'll be very happy! The King size bed takes up nearly the entire room so no space for dressers which are located in the closet therefore no room for storage for suitcases and hanging clothes for 2 people. The bedroom is also located adjacent to the hallway, so no air flow and next to the other neighbors front doors. The AC works great but does not reach the bedroom area due to the layout of the apartment. The bathroom honestly needs to be completely updated. If you are a wine drinker there was one Champagne glass and 2 different sizes of wine glasses. Minor detail but one we were a bit surprised given how inexpensive glasses are and the nightly rate.
Great property, oceanfront unobstructed view. Impeccably clean and well stocked. Even has air conditioning. Beautiful pool overlooking the ocean and grills to barbecue. Both the owner and property management company were excellent in their communication and follow up. Looking forward to staying here again.
Loved the view. Asked if we could check in early and was told no but would let us know when we could. We arrived about 30 minutes early and checked on the place, it was ready. Great view. Place needs a little updating and could use some more coffee cups and new beach towels. Otherwise, great location and view.
We loved this condo! It was so clean and the balcony was so lovely. This has been the best condo we have rented in Kona. We will be back.
Beautiful view from balcony. Great location. Heated pool. Would definitely recommend this place and will come back again.
Very comfortable for long stay
We spent six nights in this ocean front condo and it was just as advertised. The condo is directly on the water, and we spent each afternoon / evening watching the sunset from our balcony. Also enjoyed watching whales offshore directly from the balcony. Overall was a great rental property for the price. We enjoyed the close proximity to town (roughly a 10 minute walk to the various bars and restaurants), and the ocean front location of the complex. We did not use the pool or other condo facilities, but parking was very convenient, and used the complex lounge chairs located directly on the water. Although it is a bit dated, the condo is tastefully decorated, and fully stocked with everything you need for a vacation on the beach. Will definitely stay here again for a return visit.

Beautiful home in an amazing location! Walkable to the stores and restaurants. Nice pool area and clean condo. We loved snorkeling at the recommend beach as well! Would be a great place to stay for the Kona Ironman ( you could watch the swim from the balcony!)
Good location, well stocked with everything you would need,clean and comfortable walking distance to all the shops and restaurants. Great hot tub an bq area
We had a great week at Kona Reef. The location of this Condo is fantastic. Located just a short walk from all the restaurants and shops and just a short drive to many of the other activities that Kialua-Kona has to offer, including some of the best Scuba diving, the night dive with Manta Rays is not to be missed. The unit is uniquely decorated and is equipped with everything you need, including beach gear and reading material. The air conditioner, stove, dishwasher and microwave were all new and everything worked fine. The view from the lani is spectacular, along with the sunsets each evening. We enjoyed cocktails on the lani in the evenings, just watching the sun set, paradise! The owners were very accommodating in providing us with a late check-out, which made our stay completely stress free! We met the owners during our stay and had a lovely conversation, very nice couple, and hope that the next time we visit Kona we will be able to book this same unit.
Location for this condo is ideal. 5 minutes in flip flops and we were in downtown Kona. We spent a lot of our time on the lanai and enjoyed watching the dolphins & surfers. We cooked on the gas grills almost every evening and watched the sunset from the lanai. Upon arrival we had no cable TV and the A/C unit went out the first night....but a phone call to the management service had both issues resolved the same day. Having a washer and dryer in the unit was a big plus. Construction in the unit next door resulted in a lot of noise between 8am-5pm even on the weekends - the workers were courteous but construction is noisy and could not be avoided. The unit provided lots of towels and the kitchen amenities were good. The bed was very comfortable with lots of pillows. We used the A/C every night for sleeping but besides that the island breeze kept the unit comfortable during the day. We would definitely stay in this unit again. Thanks Annie.
Hi, Annie...We really enjoyed our stay there. Your place is wonderful...great location. Enjoyed seeing the ocean right outside your balcony and easy walk into town. I'd love to come back next year when we return to the islands.
