We enjoyed our time again so much. Great view, apartment so comfortable, easy walk to town and super weather. Thank you for the opportunity to enjoy Hawaii once again.
We loved our stay in this Kona Reef condo. Watching sunrises, sunsets, and surfers just off the lanai is a huge treat. The condo is well stocked and comfortable. Cindy answered our questions promptly. We'd definitely stay here again.

We really enjoyed our stay here. The view was just beautiful! We sat on our lanai and watched the waves, dolphins and whales! We look forward to going back.
This property was exactly as we expected from the description. We would not hesitate to stay here again on our next visit to Kona.

This property is a dream. The location makes it easy to walk to town, the view is unsurpassed, the owner is easy to work with. Kitchen is well equipped. The complex is filled with friendly people. Rent this place if you can!
Although I really miss my dogs at home it is hard to leave here. Everything is wonderful.
The view from the balcony is fantastic. Sunsets are amazing.
It's just a block or so from the South end of town. It was nice to to not worry about parking in town. Just a short walk to dining and shopping.
The place is pretty private too. Although the resort is on Ali'i Drive this unit is far from the road - all you hear is the ocean.
The condo is well appointed with everything you need. Even a small cooler which we used on our road trips to visit other parts of the island. Super clean and comfortable. The hot tub by the pool was nice at the end of the day. We didn't take advantage of them this time, but there are gas BBQ's too.
This was such a beautiful condo! Stunning sunsets, right over the reef. A very quiet location, for either couples or families. Has a nice pool and hot tub, with a grilling area, all well-maintained. The condo is fully stocked – kitchen, extra towels, beach supplies. Cindy was responsive to any questions we had. This is one of the best places we have ever stayed, this is our fourth Hawaiian island for perspective. Highly recommend it and hope to return soon!
The stay was great! We love the Kona Reef for the location and views of the ocean. This unit was clean, comfortable, and had everything we needed while on vacation. All our questions were answered in a timely manner. No complaints from us! Aloha and enjoy you will not regret renting this unit!
This was our first time in the Kona area and this property was perfect.
Within walking distance of food/drinks. Easy to get to the main highway for our daily trips.
The BEST part of this property is the sunset view. Fantastic! We stayed each night to have the “best seat in the house” for the sunsets. It was also great to watch the surfers while having breakfast and also at sunset.
Very enjoyable stay in a nice condo near town.
Had a wonderful time in Kona staying at this condo. Very comfortable, contained all the amenities of home, situated close to downtown and enjoyed the gorgeous sunsets every night over the ocean
Couldn’t ask for a better unit at Kona Reef. We could hardly leave our lanai with all the activities for us to watch. Thanks to our host for a comfortable stay and we look forward many more stays with you.
The property was very clean and had everything we needed. The lanai has amazing views and the location is perfect. Easy walking distance to dining and retail.
Clean..location...ocean views and comfortable.
Thank you for much
The view is only 2 floors high and the sounds! I was concerned that we would not be able to hear the ocean in bed since the bedroom's location was in the back of the unit. Ocean sounds were loud enough to be heard throughout the unit. We enjoyed viewing the sunset from the unit. Kona Reef is only a few minutes walk from the main commercial strip with restaurants and shops. It is far enough away to be quiet. Kona reef has a nice courtyard with trees and plants. It was landscaped nicely with plants and flowers on the outside, also. The convenience of the unit and the proximity to the ocean made this the best place we have stayed on our visits to Hawaii.
Great views and location.
We had a wonderful time! The condo and the view were just as they described it! This was our first time on the Big Island and it won’t be the last. We would love to stay here again!
My husband and I enjoyed our stay in this condo. Perfect location to walk to downtown Kona to shop and eat. The lanai was directly facing the ocean and is where we spent mornings and evenings.
Location was perfect. Very private. A short 10-minute walk to Kona district where there is plenty of shopping and great restaurants. Open and plenty of parking both underneath and outside. Never had to use the car in Kona (parking can be a challenge).
All pictures are accurate. Enjoyed sitting on our lanais day and night which is bigger than most. Public beach right next to you with sand and a place to swim and surf. Pool area very clean with all new furniture and BBQs
Great breeze so no A/C was needed unless we shut the sliding door to quiet the surf noise (Never happened). But with the surf you never knew there was people and traffic right in front of the complex.
We definitely recommend and will return when we visit the Big Island again.

This is our fourth stay in this condo so I guess you know we are happy with everything here. The location is stellar, with a knockout view and easy walk into the village of Kailua.

We had a wonderful time staying here. The view is amazing. We watched surfers and boogie boarders from our lanai. Honi's beach is next door. Every night we had a spectacular sunset.
Cindy was so helpful. For some reason I didn't get the check-in instructions. (It was my error: I found them later) It was late when I called her and she was so kind and helpful and gave explicit instructions on how to find the unit. Google maps told me to turn on Kahakai Rd. to get there. However, the parking garage entrance is just past Kahakai Rd. as you are travelling south on Alii Dr.
The kitchen is amazingly well equipped! There are plenty of linens and beach towels, too.
We had a wonderful stay and hope to return next year.
This place checked all the boxes: ocean front, great bed with lots of pillows, well equipped kitchen, ocean front pool and hot tub, walk to town, small public beach next door access to streaming, , very clean. I’ll miss my morning coffee absorbing the ocean roar, watching the surfers and occasional dolphins.
This property deserves a 5-star rating mainly for two reasons. The first is its location. It's on the third floor with an incredible direct oceanfront view. We loved watching sunsets from the balcony. It's within walking distance of Kona shops and restaurants, but instead of traffic noise all you hear is the ocean.
The second reason is Cindy, the owner's daughter who manages the condo. Not only was Cindy very responsive and proactive with communications, but she also resolved a couple minor issues extremely quickly. I wish all property managers were as good!
Other nice things we enjoyed about the condo were its comfortable king size bed, in-unit laundry facilities, and beach equipment. Altogether we had a great time!
This condo is wonderful. It was very comfortable and had everything we needed for our week long stay. An incredible view from the lanai. Always something to see, swimmers, surfers and especially the turtles who visited every day in the lava pools. Kona Reef is our favourite place to stay in Kona (3rd visit), plenty of parking space and an easy walk into town and to restaurants etc.
Great view. Nice property.
Had a great time at this condo. Is just as pictured. The view from the lanai was incredible-had fun watching surfers every day. Kitchen had everything we needed, bed was comfortable, beach chairs and umbrella were great to have. Always found a parking spot. Pool and hot tub are beautiful and well- kept. Location was the best- easy walk to restaurants, farmers market, shops which was great because parking there is minimal. Grocery stores 5-10 minute drive. Quiet, clean, safe. Washer and dryer were great to have after day at the beach. Would definitely stay here again!
We had a great time a Kona Reef A23. The location is an easy walk to restaurants and the farmers market, and you can’t beat the sunset from the lanai or the pool every evening. Ali’s drive is great for running or biking., or heading to the beach. It’s not a new, luxurious condo, but it had everything we needed for our stay and for days at the beach. We felt very comfortable for our 9 day trip and would stay here again. Did we mention the view?
This property is a gem. Hawaii is such a beautiful island we extended our trip and had to book somewhere else, but did not want to leave. The location is perfect to walk downtown and I watched surfers from the balcony every morning. The sunsets are also a nice view.
Enjoyed the property. Furnishings are island themed. No a/c in bedroom.
Excellent place to stay on BI in Kona. Close to everything, parking, oceanfront, saw a dolphin, outstanding sunsets. Would recommend!!
This is a nice 2-person unit, well equipped with an incredible view. Location is ideal and while I worried a little about parking (as it isn't assigned), we never had a problem and I think it was a busy week in Kona. Lovely atrium, too, as you walk to the front door of the unit. Pool area very clean and welcoming. Hope to return someday! Anita and Mike
