The views were excellent, right on the water. We had coffee and cocktails on the lanai. Everything we needed was in the condo. We walked into town for shopping and dinner. We drove around the island for tours of coffee farms and art shops. It was quiet and relaxing.
This property was great, had a minor hiccup but it was addressed swiftly and resolved. The unit was perfect for the two of us. Beautiful mornings on the lanai with coffee looking over the ocean. Close proximity to manta ray snorkeling and one of our favorite beaches magic sands. Would book this unit again!
Wonderful place to relax. Good A/C and you can watch surfers and boogie boarders from the balcony. Short walk to shopping and dinning.
we love it
We enjoyed our stay so much. The condo was wonderfully maintained, updated, and furnished. The air conditioning worked great. It had everything we needed. We enjoyed the fact we could walk into town. We also appreciated the welcome basket that awaited us when we arrived. Hope to be back soon!
We’ll maintained, equipped property. Good location to local shops, restaurants
Great views of the ocean. Close to restaurants and shops. Fun stay!
Had a great time in Kona.
The condo was in a perfect location to walk to shops and restaurants, and to run along the water.
It was stocked with everything we needed, from beach chairs and coolers, to having an ice maker in the fridge.
Would definitely stay here again.
We have stsyed here before and are planning on returning! Condo has everything you need for the beach encluding beach chairs, umbrella and snorkeling gear. It is convenient to town and some really good snorkling beaches.
Smaller than other condos we've rented but well stocked with everything we needed.
View was wonderful! Close to town of Kona; nice pool and conch shells blown by residents at sunset. Would stay again.
We enjoyed our stay in this condo as it was well equipped with all items needed for a fun & comfortable stay. It is walking distance from the town of Kona which is convenient for stores, restaurants & entertainment.
We spent many hours on the lanai watching the waves, and at the pool relaxing and meeting new people. The property is very convenient for walking to town. We don’t want to go home!
The condo is just was described...beautiful views! Loved all the recommendations from the property owner.
We enjoyed the condo! Great location with everything you need. Close walk to shops and restaurants. Excellent pool and BBQ area.
This is such a fabulous location on the beach and easy walk into Kona not on the main road. The unit is well stocked with everything even condiments and paper goods. It’s clean and nicely decorated. The owners r helpful and responsive. Just a wonderful stay.
Everything was perfect!!
Great location in a well kept up unit. The unit was clean and all the furnishings were new and up-to-date. It was also well decorated. Can’t wait to come back.
Very comfortable!! If I had to make one suggestion it would be a firmer mattress and a bit higher off the floor. Otherwise it was perfect!
The D36, where you can see the sun setting over the horizon from the lanai, was renovated, beautiful and clean, and the air conditioner worked well and was comfortable. In addition, it was a convenient location with many restaurants within walking distance.
Ailin was an amazing host! She was incredibly responsive to all questions and needs and went above and beyond by allowing us to leave our luggage a few hours past check (while the condo was cleaned). I would highly recommend the property, location and host!
Great location…close to but out of town. Lived on the lanai. Decorated very nicely .
What a wonderful location! We loved starting each day by drinking our Kona coffee on the lanai. We opted to sleep in the living room so we could listen to the ocean all night. Host was easy to communicate with and left detailed instructions and suggestions.
This property is oceanfront with a pool. Restaurants in Kona-Kaliuah are a short walk from property. Condo is quite comfortable.
We loved our one week stay at this property in June of 2022. We loved spending time on the lanai, listening to the waves, and watching the surfers and boogie boarders. It was always a treat to have our breakfasts and other meals with a stunning ocean view. All of the amenities we needed were present, and this home is a very comfortable one. The property is an easy walk to the market and restaurants. We wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again on another trip to the Big Island!
What a wonderful place to stay. We enjoyed eating breakfast & lunch on the lanai & listening to the waves. This unit has everything you need. We especially loved the location. We were walking distance to many great restaurants. We did not rent a car so we found this location ideal for us. You will not be disappointed..
We love this property and it has been a place we have been coming to for 20 yrs. This unit has been VERY nicely upgraded throughout and amenities are lovely.
This location and top floor ocean front/ocean view is unbeatable!
We enjoyed our stay in this unit at the Kona Reef. Communicating with the owner was easy and she was available via text during our stay.. The condo is great, and the view is spectacular. We enjoyed dining on the lanai, and loved our many evenings watching sunset after gorgeous sunset. Kona is an easy short walk away and we strolled to the bay and toured to different places from this great location. Thank you!
Amazing place to stay! The unit was immaculately clean, it was comfortable and welcoming. Hosts were fantastic. Loved having their recommendations and stories. It was very helpful and we used some of their suggestions. Having coffee every morning on the balcony started the days off right and then they ended in the same place watching the sunset during dinner. We could not have had a better stay! Will 1000% recommend to friends/family!!
The pictures don't do justice to this condo. Great location; easy walk to town with shops and restaurants. Well maintained. AC and washer dryer in the condo. Kitchen well equipped. Awesome lanai with great views. You're right here on top of the ocean. Doesn't get much better. Parking was easy, check in a breeze.
Sunsets were amazing and loved that the locals gathered to blow their conch shells at the pool once the sun was no longer visible. Watched whales from the lanai and saw brightly colored fish close to shore. We appreciate the well supplied kitchen including dish washing gloves! The grills appeared to be new and clean by the pool. It was nice to have a washer and dryer with very detailed instructions. I walked to shopping and lunch while the husband fished. There was plenty of storage in the bath and bedroom. It was a great experience.
Great location, very nicely arranged, and well-stocked Condo.
4th floor of Kona Reef is great-well worth the stay!
Ailin is a great host-very accommodating!
We can’t wait to return!
Every detail was covered in this beautiful property! And the view was worth every penny! Thank you for a memorable stay!
Kona Reef is a great complex for location and amenities, and D-36 couldn't have been better. Very nicely furnished and equipped, lots of beach toys, and a view that can't be beat. Sunsets viewed from the lanai were perfectly framed by palm trees. Our host, Ailin, was helpful in every way. It was a wonderful vacation.
Within walking distance of shops and eats, w/d in unit was a bonus
Mornings and evenings on the lanai were amazing. Saw whales, dolphin, turtles, could even see fish under the waves. Best condo we have found in Kona!
This condo was perfect. We will love to go back ! The location is perfect in that you can walk into town for breakfast or for happy hour. Most condos are far from town but this condo is the first condo on the way out of town. The lanai overlooks the water and a person could stay all day watching for whales and dolphins and turtles that come up to the rocks. We got married so this was a perfect honeymoon place. The decorations of the condo were “ classy and upscale”- it was worth every penny we spent to stay here! Our flight was delayed and the owner was not able to have us stay and others were coming in but she asked other condo owners and showed a lot of empathy and that was kind of her. You will love this place as we did!!!
The condo is exactly as described. I enjoyed the sunsets from the lanai, and the location was close to everything we wanted to do.
The kitchen has a great set of knives and good cookware, I haven’t always had that experience when I rented condos! Everything you may need is there, just stop by the store for groceries and your good to go!
The property manager/owner communicates with you before and after check-in to make sure your satisfied. We were and we didn't have any other needs.
We would highly recommend staying here!
Nice condo close to Ali’s drive and lots of restaurants. We loved watching the sunset in the back. Good first destination for first time on big island. The bed could be bigger but the comforter was comfy and a/c worked well. Overall it was a cozy and comfy stay
We had a wonderful stay at this beautiful waterfront condo. Loved watching the waves and seeing fish right from our lanai. The condo was very clean and had everything we needed for a relaxing vacation!
Great property with a great location. Incredible view. Eating on the lanai is the best!
We really enjoyed our time at Kona Reef! The condo was clean, bed comfortable, a lot of extra amenities, the view was spectacular, it was within walking distance to shops and restaurants! Ailin responded to any questions within minutes and was so helpful!
We would highly recommend this condo. We will be back!
The view from this property's patio is everything you would ever want. The unit is clean, up to date, has everything you need, close to restaurants and shops, quiet and again the VIEW! Very nice to travel 3000 miles and have a property that supplies an umbrella, beach chairs, and beach towels.
This unit is perfect and has everything that you need for a Hawaii vacation. The view is spectacular and the location is within walking distance to so many restaurants and shops. We would definitely stay again!
Our experience was exceptional from the time we made our reservation to check-in and check-out. The condo was in the perfect location. It was close to shopping, beaches (be sure to check out the hidden gem 4 miles away at Alula Beach), and dining. It’s very easy to take day trips to Waimea, Hilo, or Volcanoes National Park. The condo had the perfect balcony for sunsets, a well-equipped kitchen, and air conditioning. We started planning our return trip on Day 1. I highly recommend this condo and Ailin’s wonderful hospitality!
What an incredible unit and location. We couldn't have asked for a better home for our stay on the Big Island. It was everything we needed and more!
Wow! This place really impresses, having our own slice of the sunset each night was great. We also really enjoyed the proximity to town and the nice walk along the ocean we could take each way. The condo building itself is a bit dated, but this unit has been newly renovated and is very comfortable. We hope to come back and stay here again!
Loved this place. Amazing ocean view from the balcony. Conveniently located and easy to walk to shops and restaurants. Bith
