Kona Reef Beachfront Getaway


You're gonna love your Kona Beachfront Getaway. Imagine the big smile on your face when you walk through the door of this freshly renovated, top-floor, jewel of a condo... a place you get to call your Kailua-Kona "home" away from home. If you would like to receive a customized quote for your travel dates without having to "Book Now", just click on the "Ask Owner a Question" link and make an inquiry! What's not to love? You can enjoy the "local-style" ambience and convenience of the in-town walk-to-everything location, while being in an oceanfront complex with a great ocean view. The public beach right next door is super convenient for swimming, snorkeling and surfing. From sunbathers to yoga classes, to picnics and people-watching, the view from your top-floor lanai provides a different beach scene every day. You'll be charmed by the beachy, tropical eclectic decor -- a blend of retro "Hawaiiana" with a touch of understated whimsy. Enjoy the top-quality finishes, selected to convey a simple warmth as well as durability. The expanded kitchen features bamboo cabinets, white "cloud-like" quartz countertop, art glass backsplash, and shell mosaic pendant lighting. The bathroom was inspired by the colors of sand and sea, and has a custom walk-in shower that features a rain head, bamboo glass panel and handy corner seat. Sturdy bamboo-pattern vinyl flooring ties everything together to complete the natural ambience. Your top-floor lanai is the perfect place to enjoy a relaxing breakfast, or watch the waves and beach activities. You might be inspired to head on down to the beach, where you can picnic, wade, swim, snorkel or maybe even join a yoga class. The condo comes equipped with back-pack style beach chairs, boogie boards, snorkel gear, beach towels and more for your convenience. You will also enjoy the convenience of: o FREE password-protected, high speed WIFI signal o Digital Cable TV package o Bluetooth Sound Bar o In-unit front-loading washer and dryer o Elevator access from parking garage to the patio level. (You have to walk several paces from the elevator, then up 8 stairs to the condo level. If you require "no stairs", unfortunately, my condo is not a good choice for you). But as much as you will enjoy the amenities of the condo, (... did I mention the super-comfy, firm memory-foam, gel-top king-size mattress?...) you didn't come all the way to Kona to stay indoors! There is so much to do and see. You'll want to spend some of your time chillin' at the oceanfront swimming pool. We have one of the nicest pool/recreation areas in town--with plenty of lounge chairs, whirlpool spa, barbecues and shady pavilion. Kona Reef has one of the most convenient locations on the Kona Coast, and is just a short walk to shopping, restaurants, bars and entertainment. It is a 5 to 10 minute walk to: o Honl’s Beach (right next door!) o Luau at the Royal Kona Resort o Bars and restaurants o Shopping o Bicycles for rent o Coffee Shops And just a few more minutes to: o Farmer’s Market o Art Galleries o Library o More shops and restaurants o Churches o Hulihee Palace If you are the adventurous type, you will want to do some sight-seeing and exploring. There is so much to choose from: o Snorkeling o SCUBA o Golf o Zip Line o Hiking o Deep Sea Fishing o Helicopter Tours o Sailing o Stand Up Paddle (SUP) o Surfing o Parasailing o Pu'u Honua (City of Refuge) National Park o Waterfalls o Botanical Gardens o Luau o Coffee Tasting o Farm Tours (Coffee, Chocolate, Vanilla...YUM!) o and more! Whatever your preference, the Big Island offers plenty of fun in the sun, and you couldn't pick a better home base than this lovely top floor condo at Kona Reef. This is more than a hotel room… it's my downtown oceanfront getaway and I like nothing better than staying at the unit when it is not booked. My home is your home, and I love it when guests tell me a little about themselves when making a booking request. The calendar allows reservation requests up to 9 months in advance. If your travel plans are further in the future, I can open up some dates for you... Just click on the "Ask Owner a Question" link! Thanks for looking and thanks for booking! About the Air Conditioning: There is an 18,000 BTU window unit in the living room, (installed in December, 2017) and it works great! The bedroom has a "chilled air fan" (installed in June 2018) that pulls the chilled air-conditioned living room air into the bedroom. Together with the ceiling fan, this system is designed to keep the bedroom pleasantly cool. If your preference is for cold rooms 24/7, please consider accommodations that have central air conditioning. It's all about what you're used to. Most locals don't use A/C at all! ALSO: Due to the high cost of electricity in Hawaii, the air-conditioner is on a 6-hour timer . At approx. $0.45/kwh, our electricity is probably triple or quadruple the cost where you live. The timer avoids wasting electricity (no need to cool the condo when no one is home), and keeps the room rate affordable.
