Absolutely fabulous property. Well apportioned. We wanted for nothing.
Very well decorated. Actually too decorated LOL. Some items might be too nice for the rental. Well equipment. Nice step out patio. Fantastic view.
A few minor things but they are kind of thing an owner wouldn't know about if they have not stay there. Ceiling fan noise, etc. A grade.
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in A6 of the Kona Reef Resort. It was exactly how the pictures showed. There were games to play, beach accessories to use, and it was very clean. Great location as well. Thanks for a great trip for our first time to Kona.
This was a nice unit in an older complex. The ocean front view was great and the pool was very relaxing. Our friends have a timeshare at the Billfisher across the street so the location was perfect. We do hope the city does something to revitalize the town. It needs some work!! But overall a nice trip!
Nicely updated unit very comfortable for 2 people. Terrific ocean and sunset views from the lanai. The title floors were quite dirty and required us to sweep and mop when we checked in. The beach chairs provided are in need of replacing as they are worn out.
Thoroughly enjoyed our time here. The Lanai is perfect and our 11 year old enjoyed spending hours in the tide pools right out front of the property. Pool and hot tub were clean and comfortable and covered parking was a bonus since we had a downpour for the first two days. Would highly recommend for families or couples!!
This is a beautiful condo, with a fantastic view. I could watch my Husband surf out front while I poured coffee in the kitchen. Neat to hear the conch blowing in the evening. Close to town, we walked to the Christmas parade. My only complaint is that the TVs did not work for the first 2.5 days. We called and they said they would fix it that day. They did not. We called the next day again. They finally came and fixed it, but we were bummed we had to spend vacation time on several phone calls to get it fixed. Otherwise, this place is great.
This condo is well appointed; great location; oceanfront; super clean. Management is attentive.
We got to the condo in the late evening and were greeted with that beautiful view from the lanai and the sound of the waves crashing into the rocks. Such a great introduction to Kona. You can watch the turtles and surfers right from the lanai.
The condo itself is nice and had everything we needed. There were camping chairs, beach towels and a beach mat. There were no beach chairs, umbrella or boogie boards so make sure to grab some at Costco if needed.
The pool and hot tub were nice and there were lots of bbqs available.
It is a 15 minute walk to town and dinning options which was nice. There is a small beach right next door but the waves and rocks make it not a swimming beach. There are a number of beaches around the area that you can drive to. Our trip highlights were snorkeling at Two Step, zip lining and the night Manta Ray swim!
Overall great experience and would stay again.
The property was clean and well appointed. Very relaxing and comfortable. Check in time of 4 pm was late. 3 pm would be more reasonable
What a treat to be able to enjoy this property. The view from the patio was beautiful and relaxing. So grateful to stay here and would love to stay again!
We've stayed at this resort numerous times & this condo twice and love everything about it. We will definitely stay again.
We would rate the Kona Reef as one of the nicest, best located of all the places we have stayed in kailua kona, Hawaii. Our place looked exactly like it does in the pictures. It’s literally 30 feet from the ocean with the Honi beach next door . It was cozy, decorated with very nice island touches, quiet and super clean with everything we needed to feel at home. It was an easy 5 minute walk to many restaurants and shops. Plenty of parking and communication was great too. Kona Coast's regular follow up leading up to our stay was filled with clear instructions to find the place. Instructions on how to use the smart TV and Wifi logon were greatly appreciated. We would highly recommend this wonderful place to stay.
We really enjoyed our stay at this condo. It was clean, views were beautiful and there is nothing like morning coffee on the lanai with the sound of wakes and fresh air. The location was the perfect distance to walk into town for meals and shopping. It was a good location for home based to explore the rest of the island. This is where we will stay when returning to the island.
The views were beautiful. The property manager was very responsive and recommended activities to plan.
I really enjoyed my stay. The location was close to everything in Kona and you can't beat the views. This place is right on the ocean. You just walk outside and you are right there.
Everything I needed, including soap, detergent, towels, dishes, bedding, cutlery, etc was provided. The place was clean and when it got humid the AC worked great.
Right next door, less than a minute walk away, theres Honl's Beach.
I would defintiely stay here again.
Everything about the property is just as pictured. It was the perfect location. The view of the ocean is amazing. Close to restaurants and shopping, was able to walk and avoid parking hassles. I could have sat on the lanai forever! Everything was very nice. Bed was extremely comfortable.
We had a wonderful stay! You cannot beat the location of the condo. We were right at the edge of the beach and walking distance to town. We hardly watched any TV with that spectacular lanai. Listening to the waves every night and morning was so relaxing. It rained quite a bit while we were there and it added to our enjoyment. Thank you so much!
Walked in and immediately saw the sea! Unit was quiet. Neighbors were quiet and cordial. Felt like family. Sunsets with conch horns ...fanastic
We really enjoyed our stay at the Kona Reef. The accommodations were great for us with ocean view, nice condo, AC (if needed) quiet and walking distance to Kona. The pool area was very nice as well. The sunsets were spectacular even through the clouds a couple of evenings. Great relaxing trip.
Aloha & Mahalo until the next time we visit Hawaii.
My wife and I just spent our third trip to the big island in Kona Reef at this condo. We were familiar enough with the Condo Complex because we stayed at another garden ocean front last year. It would be hard to criticize a condo so nicely adorned as this. The oceans almost splash into the condo, or at least it feels so. The sunsets are so magnificent at this location, along with the pool, BBQ, and setting, you can't go wrong. Everything was really nice and even minor issues were taken care of efficiently by the rental agency staff.
This unit has proximity to the water and to the town... just a short walk to about anything. Our time in the unit was a bit compromised by the power failing to the neighborhood for a day - not the property's fault - but a delightful stay other than that. Breakfast on the Lanai was a high point of the day!
This is a great rental. It has a great location and everything you need. The kitchen is well equipped.
If you want to be in the center of Kona this is a great little place.
Clean and neat, well organized and efficient. Lovely patio to see the ocean and a quiet building. A lot of bang for the buck!
I’ve stayed at several condos in Kona and this one had the best location! It was clean and had everything I needed. I would definitely rent again!
This was our first trip to Kona and we really enjoyed our stay. The condo was very clean, had so many kitchen necessities and really felt like a little home in Kona. It was great to leave the car in the parking garage and just walk to town for shopping and dinner. I highly recommend this rental, you will not be disappointed, unless you have a thing about tropical decor. Then you probably shouldn’t be in Hawaii either, Lol!
Upon our arrival their was an issue with our room, I notified the resort management via email and heard nothing back, so I emailed and called the resort again. The person I talked to said they would notify the resort, I heard nothing back. After another attempt at contacting someone I did hear back but that was to let me know their was nothing they could do and they needed to hear from the owner. After 3 days of our 7 night stay they heard from the owner and contacted us to let us know they may have a temporary fix which did work. I asked for a discounted rate due to this and they said the owner denied it. I also pointed out their was construction going on with jack hammers, heavy machinery, skid steers dump trucks and generators running throughout the day while they were working on the pool and gazebo area where the grill were and everything was off limits in this area. This was not noted in the description of the property that this was going on, the description only stated the pool would be closed which I thought was no big deal. I was given a 10% refund from the management company because of this, but I'm not sure i would stay here again do to the misrepresentation of the place and the lack of communication with the owner. If the construction had not been going on and there wasn't an issue with our room. I would say the view was great of the ocean and the room was updated which was nice, but the bathroom needs a shower door to prevent water from going everywhere and something should be done about the electrical panel in the bathroom and the non operable blinds. Their is also a very rude lady that works in the check out area of the resort, I asked her where the trash cans were because we were trying to take the trash out and it was like I out her out by just asking a simple question. Id steer clear of her as well.
Stayed for 4 nights. *Loved* the view and ocean access for walking along lava rocks right outside the door! Easy walking distance to downtown Kona restaurants and harbor views. Could not have been a better experience.
Fantastic location right on the first floor of the complex. It was very well appointed with appliances, dishes, pots, pans, etc. Plenty of sheets and towels.
You could not beat the view or The wonderful location of this unit. It was convenient to everything you would want to go to! We really enjoyed eating breakfast out on the patio each morning watching the sunrise and the early surfers abd bify borders. I highly recommend staying here.
We wanted to be right on the ocean and we were! Great watching the tides changes and the surfers. We had a beach right next to us that was wonderful and walking distance to town. Loved our stay and would recommend to others. The price was right too!! Thank you for sharing your place with us for our vacation in Kona.
We had to move out to the very edge and beyond a bit because of a bush, but sunset views were lovely. The unit was well stocked and clean, but even cleaner when we left (I can't help myself.). It was a peaceful place, but I have a few minor suggestions that weren't forwarded to the property manager that would make the place even more comfortable if the owner is interested. We very much enjoyed our time there.
