We are the proud owners of this beautiful vacation home and we are excited to share this slice of Paradise with you! We are experienced Superhosts and Premier Partners and we have worked hard to make sure you will have the most comfortable stay ever!

We purchased a beautiful top floor oceanfront condo two years ago and discovered that we love it here at the Kona Reef so much that we purchased this second condo so that we can have family and friends stay when we are here! (Please check out our other condo listed under: Property #1475517 for condo D36.)

We have updated this beautiful condo to our exacting requirements: we've added brand new quiet and powerful Dual Zone air conditioning in the living room/kitchen area and its own separate unit in the bedroom. We've also added a brand new beautiful high quality queen sofabed in the living room and expanded the seating.

This modern, completely private top floor (of 3 floors and a basement floor) condo is one of the premier units in the highly desirable Kona Reef Resort situated on the water’s edge luxury hotel strip. You'll be enjoying the top floor for extra quiet and security, not to mention unmatched ocean views. This vacation condo is not just in an oceanfront complex, it is a proper Oceanfront Condo. Don't be disappointed with your rental. True oceanfront condo complexes are hard to find and the only real oceanfront condos at Kona Reef are located in buildings A and D. Any others are just ocean view! Top floor offers the best privacy and security.

We are situated a comfortable few steps away from the general pool/jacuzzi/barbecue area and yet conveniently around the corner so as to avoid any disruptive noises from there. The condo feels like a home away from home, with an up close view of the blue waters of the Pacific Ocean where you will experience Hawaii in all its natural splendor, removed from the tourist crowds. Palm trees sway softly as the waves rush into shore. Look for dolphins, turtles, and if you’re lucky, even whales frolicking right in front of you! Every sunset, a few boogie boarders will ride those waves into Honl's Beach, just 200 feet away. This is known as the home of boogie boarding. The little beach at the corner of the resort grounds, is an easy 2-minute walk from the condo, and features a small cove where there is some nice snorkeling to be had.

* Please note that while there is an elevator to get to the top floor, there is an additional short flight of stairs to climb - a total of 9 steps.

The well-appointed condo is clean, bright, and airy, and is one of just a few units in the resort with newly installed Dual Zone air conditioning throughout the living room and the bedroom. Additionally, ceiling fans in the living room, lanai, and bedroom create a pleasant breeze. This condo has been fully remodeled and upgraded.
Beautiful brand new wood framed sliding glass doors have been installed between the living room and the lanai. The condo features a king bed in the bedroom. A brand new high end queen sofa bed in the living room pulls out into a comfortable bed, thanks to the latest technology. No uncomfortable bar underneath! Comfortable bedding is provided for both beds. The bathroom features a walk-in shower, raised sink, and modern fixtures. Cable television is offered in both the living room and in the bedroom. You are also able to connect to your own streaming services to watch on both SMART TVs. There is also a DVD player.
The kitchen features high end cabinetry, granite counters, and is outfitted with modern appliances - a brand new full stove/oven, a large refrigerator, a dishwasher, and a full-sized microwave. It is ready for use with coffee maker, toaster, kettle, blender, rice cooker, and plates, glasses, cups, and utensils. A brand new high end and efficient Asko European clothes washer and dryer inside the condo are available for your convenience. High speed internet with WiFi and a land line phone service that includes all local calls plus free long distance calling to the US mainland and Canada are included.
Please note: we have a strict NO SMOKING rule.
Should you decide to spend a day at the beach, a supply of essentials is readily available: beach towels, a beach umbrella, two boogie boards, snorkeling sets (including masks, fins and tubes), and cooler bag.
The property’s oceanfront pool and jacuzzi, and poolside barbecues are all ready for your use. It is a great place to gather and make new friends over sunsets and dinner!
Kona Reef Resort is extremely well situated, right on Alii Drive, about a 5-minute walk from Kona town where there are plenty of restaurants, bars, shops, the local farmers market, and Kailua Pier. Some of the best beaches on the island are just a few minutes drive away.
A parking pass is available for the duration of your stay and will be left for you in the condo. There is ample parking available on the property.
So, come and enjoy Paradise - your dream vacation is just a click away! Registration Number: TA-073-558-5280-01, GE-073-558-5280-01

Overall, our stay was great. All appliances worked and the condo was very clean. View from balcony is amazing and hearing the ocean all night was really special. Only minor complaint was that the bed could be updated.

This rental was all we had hoped for and then some. It's a great location right on the water with perfect sunset views. We couldn't have asked for more. It's obvious that Ailin has been doing this for a while! We had a couple of minor issues and they were addressed immediately. The A/C was an added bonus.

The view, the location and all the amenities/supplies provided made the stay amazing!

This condo is a wonderful place to stay, look no further!! The view is to die for and listening to the waves was just music to our ears. We also really enjoyed watching all the boogie boarders and surfers right from the lanai. The place was well stocked and was clean. The air conditioning works great and was so nice. We really loved being able to walk into the heart of Kona for meals/shopping. We would for sure stay here again.

Apartment could not improve on the view but came a close second. Everything you could possibly imagine needing was provided. Key code did not work on arrival but Ailin was on it in a flash and sorted it out We had no car but all the restaurants were easily walkable. I even walked to Target one day.

The sunsets from the porch were amazing! You have the perfect view. This condo is in a great location to see the sights on the big island. Perfectly located to downtown Kona. The condo has everything you need to make your stay comfortable. Allin has thought of it all. The condo also has coolers you can use for beach days or to pack lunch. We loved it here. We will stay here again!

Stayed here 6 days/5 nights to celebrate our 35th anniversary. This was our first time on the Big Island and we booked this oceanfront condo in Kailua-Kona 6+ months in advance, based on the online pix and description of the property. We had high expectations and -- surprisingly-- this unit exceeeded those expectations. Its a miracle that we even left this condo to explore the island -- the panoramic view of the ocean, palm trees, surfers, and spectacular sunsets was mesmerizing -- and the hosts' attention to detail and thoughtful how-to, where-to notes could not have been better. We loved it.

Direct oceanfront, incredible views. We love watching the fish and occasionally a sea turtle from our lanai. Clean and well-air-conditioned interior. Well supplied kitchen and the coffee and treats are a nice touch. Great location just far enough from historic city center to be quiet but close enough to walk. Our favorite in Kona!

We have visited Hawaii over 50 times, but this is the first time we have actually stayed so close to Kailua. We were very happy with this condo as it had everything we needed including a well stocked kitchen, strong air conditioning, beautiful ocean front view, beach equipment, beach next door that took only 3 minutes to walk to, everything in good working order, clear instructions given for tv remote, dishwasher, etc. We really appreciated how Ailin responded very quickly to any email I sent to her. I could tell she really cared. We would love to rent from Ailin/same condo again.

We had a great time at the property! We loved being able to walk to bars/food and shopping and enjoyed sunsets on the Lanai. The house had everything we needed and the welcome basket with goodies and coffee was appreciated! We would stay again if we went back to the Kona area!

We absolutely enjoyed everything about this unit! Things were clean, the AC was quiet and efficient, the beach toys and towels were well supplied, and the views from the lanai were spectacular. We enjoyed the sunset right from the lanai as we listened to the waves crash below. Parking was a breeze and we loved only having to climb a half level of stairs to get to this top floor unit. So many fun restaurants are within walking distance. We would definitely recommend this condo to others and would stay here again ourselves. Check in and check out was simple and we loved having a code instead of a key. The nearby beach is small but still fun.

We loved our time in this beautiful well stocked condo. The location and view were amazing, just a short walk to restaurants and beaches. We loved just sitting and watching the ocean. There were also all the beach supplies you could want. Ailin was a quick to respond to any questions too. Thank you so much for a wonderful stay.

The owner,Ailin was always quick to respond and answered all my questions. We loved the unit and knew we chose correct upon arrival. This was our 3rd stay at Kona Reef Resort but our 1st time in this unit. It is the BEST. Very clean and neat and utilized the space well. The oceanfront view is breathtaking. We spent much time on the lanai. Ate most meals out on it. The unit had everything we needed for our 2 week stay. We would not hesitate staying in this unit again.

My husband and I just had a wonderful 10-night stay at Kona Reef! The condo was just as advertised and very comfortable for the two of us. I loved being on the top floor with large lanai overlooking the surf break to watch the boogie boarders and surfers. The unit felt very private and with sound of the ocean, we couldn’t hear anything else. I appreciated that the unit was stocked with all the beach essentials, chairs, boogie boards, snorkel sets, etc. And the location was perfect for us; close enough to walk downtown but far enough away to be nice and quiet. The only negative was the bed was a bit soft for my liking. But I would gladly come back for a repeat stay :)

Absolute first rate property. Hosts were readily available for all questions and very responsive to the very few issues we had with this 3 month rental. Would love to stay here again. Location is incredible, ocean right off the balcony, turtles and whales came by all the time.

3rd floor overlook of small bay with surf break 24/7. Nice lanai for breakfast. Easy walk to ‘downtown’ Kailua-Kona. Kitchen well appointed, especially appreciate the decent knives and cooking utensils. Property itself fairly quiet after 10. A little aged and an abandoned construction site next door, though.

My husband and I stayed here for our anniversary trip to Hawaii and we could not have found better accommodations. Location is right in the heart of Kona. Literally walking distance from many activities. A very nice luau is held at the hotel right next door. The condo is so nice, it really felt like home…from its cleanliness to having everything you can imagine readily accessible. The book of suggestions was spot-on, as well. If we visit the Big Island again, we will definitely try to stay here again. Just perfect. Sunsets on the patio are breathtaking and I enjoyed the pool and hot tub!

We have stayed on the top floor at the Kona Reef before but this condo is much, much better. Nicely furnished, dishes and cutlery match, very thoughtfully decorated and having both rooms air conditioned is very nice, especially in August.

We were entertained by the boogie boarders and surfers out in front of the condo.! Updated unit with all the necessities. Loved it! Thank you!

Great location and awesome amenities. Didn't hear any sounds but the ocean and the birds in the courtyard. We can't wait to return!

Roughly 15th time at Kona Reef. Consistently quality, relaxing and convenient. Unit was clean and well kept with owner in contact if and whenever needed. Folks at Kona Vacation Rentals were knowledgeable, helpful and professional. Thank you for your commitment to client needs. Satisfied clients are good for all!

This was a great choice for us. Very central location with everything we needed to enjoy our week. It was also so nice to come home to a sunset on our private balcony. During our week, we did not see any other place we would have rather been. This place is the best. Thank you for sharing it with us.

My husband and I were thrilled with this condo. The ocean front view was just what we wanted and sitting out on the lanai very entertaining watching the surfers and boogie boarders. The condo was well stocked and clean and the owners were always available whenever I had a question. The location to downtown Kona was perfect. We were able to walk everywhere. We highly recommend this condo and would definitely stay here again.

The view from the lanai is amazing and the crashing wave sounds will lil you to sleep.

If you're trying to decide between multiple similar properties in the Kona area we highly recommend this place. We have stayed at a number of rental properties in Hawaii, and this was by far the best - The location and view are PERFECT, and the owners' care for the property and their customers is evident in very detail. The view just couldn't be better, the unit is a short walk from the center of town, the unit is quiet (we heard literally nothing but the ocean for 4 days), and everything was perfectly clean and in great repair. Other than some very well-done instructions and labels it does not feel like a rental, but rather like a well cared for full-time home. The owners thought of everything, and even checked in via text to make sure all was going well. The only downside we could see: That we don't own it!! :)

This ocean front location provides an unobstructed view of the ocean from the lanai and is in walking distance of many restaurants and shopping area. Sitting on the lanai we saw sea turtles and surfers. The owner is very responsive and provides many supplies such as soaps, small starter shampoo and conditioner, dish and laundry detergent, coffee, sugar, paper towel, and ample supply of bath towels. Owner provides a very thorough manual of how to operate appliances and large electronics and one which includes their recommendations. Kitchen is well supplied and had everything we needed. The elevator listed in the property description does not extend to the top floor where condo is located making it necessary to carry your luggage up a flight of nine stairs.

We loved the oceanfront location. Had many meals on the lanai watching waves break below us. The condo is beautifully decorated. Excellent AC. Close enough to walk into town but you hear no traffic noise, only the sounds of the ocean.

Everything we could have wanted. One of the best stays we’ve had on Hawai’i!

This condo was wonderful. Great location, well maintained, and very comfortable. When we were in the condo we spent almost all of our time on the deck just watching and listening to the surf. What sets this place apart are the amenities and the hosts thought of everything. This was a fantastic vacation and I can't say enough good things about this condo and the wonderful hospitality of the hosts.

Amazing property. From the amazing ocean view to the close location to Kona, to the attention to small details like providing guests a waterproof key holder for snorkel adventures, this place is gold. But, gold is expensive, such is the price of luxury. Treat your family like I did. Did I mention the A/C that is fantastic after a hot day at the beach?

This is the perfect vacation property in Kona. The sound of the pounding sea as you eat dinner on the patio is heavenly; then hang out and wait for the stars to dazzle your nights. I so appreciated the little extras---fluffy towels, plentiful oils and spices for cooking, comfortable furniture and bed, and beach supplies. All of the comforts to make a stay great and an incredible view of the ocean. Did I mention you can walk into Kona with all of its restaurants and shops? We enjoyed our stay and plan to be back. We have stayed in apartments and condos all over the world and this was one of the best.
