We arrive late Friday night and it was easy to check in into the condo. The location is amazing, getting up the sound of the waves crashing is a way to start your day. The condo is fully equipped. It’s an easy walk to Shop and restaurant. We enjoyed every moment of our holidays. Thank you

Absolutely beautiful location. Property owner frequently checked in with us. So great to have a cooler, boogie boards and beach chairs to take out when we went exploring.

I cannot begin to share what a wonderful experience we had on our first visit to the Big Island. A few weeks before our trip, the owner, Debi sent us the most complete instructions on how to access the condo and the warmest wishes for our stay. The condo was wonderfully appointed with a fully stocked kitchen, spices, etc. and fully stocked, full size washer and dryer. Perfect for our long stay. The bed was dreamy, comfortable as was the furnishings in living room. The view was heart-stopping GORGEOUS! It is the perfect oceanfront view and space to relax, un-plug and just soak in the Aloha spirit! Made some wonderful friends at the nightly happy hour by the pool and hope to see them on the Big Island when we come back! Incredible experience all around and by far the BEST VRBO Condo we have ever rented~

Debi was a great host, very communicative and informative on everything needed. Condo is a short walk to the Kona restaurants and farmers market. Property is right on the water and has all the necessities. Great Stay!

We loved our stay here. The condo has everything you need. It was a little cozy with 2 adults and 2 teenagers, but the ground-floor lanai helps make it feel more spacious. The view and sound of the ocean are unbeatable. Our kids have slept on a lot of pullout sleeper sofas, and the air mattress on this one made it much more comfortable. Enjoyed being within walking distance of shops and restaurants. Excellent communication with our host Debi.

My husband and I thoroughly enjoyed our time in this condo. we stayed in 4 different locations during our trip (some more expensive) and this was the most comfortable of the bunch. Being at the waterfront always hold a certain allure for us. While beach entry all over the big island can be difficult, we enjoyed watching some surfers and boarders right outside the patio. The sunsets from the patio are spectacular and the proximity to parking and the pool were just excellent. The property is very well maintained and was everything (and more) than we expected. We used the grills, hot tub, pool, and patio lounge chairs to relax by the ocean after many nearby snorkeling excursions. The owner was very helpful and absolutley responsive to our needs. Don't hesitate, book a stay! We would go back in a heartbeat!

Debi (Owner) was very responsive, helpful and informative. We walked into the condo and it was EXACTLY as presented ... and beyond! Condo was clean, comfy and well-stocked. Lanai was incredible. We had planned to eat out a lot ... but we ended up getting take-out to come back to enjoy our private dining place in paradise! Saw a large pod of dolphins every day ... and lots of brightly colored fish as the clear blue waves were curling just off the shore. Beautiful and mesmerizing! Location was PERFECT ... we walked into town several times each day - it was so easy and convenient. Condo was QUIET -- the waves provided a lovely back-drop to reading and talking and dreaming on the lanai

Loved staying here. Convenient location. Beautiful view! Classy furnishings. Very nice barbeque pavilion and pool area. My smoking husband was very pleased with the tropical smoking area. We used the onsite vacation club to plan a zipline tour. They gave us excellent service. If I could own a place on Kona, this condo would be perfect!

We had such a wonderful time on the Big Island and the condo made it just perfect. The view is beautiful. I miss sitting on the lanai every morning having Kona coffee. Everything you need is here. The air conditioning was very welcome during our stay. It would have been very difficult to sleep without it. It just kind of takes the edge off the humidity. The location of the condo is perfect. We walked the few blocks into town every night. A very quick and easy walk to get to all of the best places to eat and shop. We even went to the luau at the Royal Kona right next door. Very helpful to be next door after the open bar and mai tais. LOL I highly recommend staying here. I researched places to stay in Kona, literally for months. As soon as we drove up to the condo, I knew that my time was well spent. Also Debi was so accommodating when we opted to stay an extra night. She made the entire rental so simple. Thanks again.

Wonderful condo Well stocked Incredible views and breezes Air conditioning was NOT any problem -- worked Well! Owner was responsive, and sincerely interested in us having a great time in her home Great location -- easy walking distance to town I will DEFINITELY rent with this owner again! Fabulous experience

August 2012
What we liked: the friendly owner, the location: on the water, and within walking distance to town, the fully stocked kitchen, the tasteful decor. What we didn't like: the a/c being on a 60 minute timer! Because of this we spent our sleeping time waking every hour or so to turn the timer back on. It made for uncomfortable, sleepless nights, even with the fans going.  Other condos in the complex do not have their wall unit air-conditioners on timers, and we feel that when a unit is advertised as having a/c it should not be "conditional" a/c. We certainly appreciate conservation, and I'm sure there are months when fans are all that's needed, however August is hot and humid in Kona and a/c is definitely needed. When looking for accommodations I purposely sought a unit with a/c and was terrible disappointed that this one was on an hour long timer.

What a great stay we at this Kona reef Condo. (#27574) We have rented many places in Hawaii over the years and this Condo ( D2) was by far the best in all phases: including the location and the amenities in the Condo. I’m pretty sure the unit has recently been redone. Super clean inside and everything included in the unit to enable you to move in and bring nothing but your swim suit! The outside area is immaculate! The property is well maintained. The pool/BBQ area especially is in great shape. The tile around the pool looks like it has been replaced also. It’s a 6 minute walk to the many restaurants and shops. We will definitely be renting this Condo again. (Also, the owners are VERY friendly)

This was my first time using VRBO, and I was very satisfied with how the whole process worked out for this rental. The owner was very generous and responsive to my inquiries which put me at ease. Not only did she provide accurate details on her listing but she also was genuine in providing suggestions for a wonderful and enjoyable stay. Kona Reef is an older but very well-maintained place. We enjoyed the amenities offered at the condo, being able to cook our own food both in the kitchen and outside at the BBQ grills overlooking the pool area. The salt water pool and spa were both great for relaxing with a morning coffee or after a long day out exploring the island. The condo is very convenient to the pool area while having ground-floor access and views of the ocean which we found to be a big plus compared to other condos. We enjoyed the breezes coming in from the lanai. The sunsets were spectacular. The condo itself is sparkly clean. Everything you need for a day at the beach is provided. A small round cooler for holding drinks, noodles for floating in the water, beach chairs, snorkeling gear, towels. It's all there. The kitchen is fully stocked and provides everything you will need to make a gourmet meal. Previous tenants left their condiments and marinade sauces in the refrigerator labeled with dates of opening which we found to be a nice touch. There is a dining table but we didn't use it at all, instead opting to eat al fresco on the lanai overlooking the water. This place is close to everything. The village, shops, restaurants, and Queen K highway. My only drawback was that there was not much of a sandy beach. The closest beach with sand is a short five minute walk to the south and even that is small. We enjoyed Hapuna Beach which is a easy 30 minute drive to the north. All of that said, I would definitely recommend this property to friends and relatives due to its great amenities, convenience, and location... Mahalo for a memorable vacation spot!

I cannot express how much I appreciated working with this condo owner (Debi). She was VERY responsive and efficient and she really cared about our time of relaxing in Kona. The condo is beautiful and well-equipped -- so easy to make ourselves at home right away. We really valued all the 'home' touches (cooking supplies and equipment, beach chairs, towels and a great cooler, laundry soap, ETC!!) We seriously had trouble leaving the condo and lanai -- it was sooooo beautiful and quiet and relaxing. I was concerned about foot 'traffic' in front of the condo -- no worries needed! The few people that pass were no interruption to our thorough enjoyment of our private place in Kona. I thought I would need an air conditioner in the bedroom -- but the ceiling fan and open windows were all we needed (and it was WARM while we were there for 2 weeks) We have already made our return reservation. I cannot encourage YOU -- a prospective guest -- enough to contact THIS owner -- she was a delight to work with. The condo is popular ... so don't wait too long to make your reservations!!
