It was a nice traditional apartment, with a good balcony and nice pool area on the beach. Only a short walk to town. Communication with the host was very easy and we were able to check in a bit earlier. Having the washer and dryer was great!
Everything was accurate, nice place, no issues. I do think the bathroom could use a fan, and for some reason the Wi-Fi in the bedroom is noticeably week compared to the rest of the unit. That isn’t any sort of big deal, but was weird how my phone and laptop both worked amazing everywhere but the room. Reality is most will go to the room to sleep, not work or play on the phone.
Highly recommend properry..
We loved our condo it was so clean and walking distance to kona town
Condo was stocked really well with beach gear, bedding, towels. There was snorkeling gear, beach towels, pool noodle, play pen, floor mattress. Very clean. Oceanside, literally 1 min walk to ocean. Great location, close to shopping, dining options. Would stay again!
Great location to access the Big Island. We enjoyed our stay and had an ocean view which made it relaxing watching and listening to the waves.
Was able to see flowing lava and the Volcano National Parks. Also saw the green and black sand beaches. Waterfall were beautiful and able to enjoy the stay.
My son and I were very happy with accommodations, and great location! We will certainly return.
needs tv updates better towels great location owners do the counch blow at sundown over all we would return
The grounds were exceptionally clean n well maintained. Location of condo unit was good, close to pool parking n street access.
The unit itself was not well equiped. Missing minor items necessary for cooking.
Owner was extremely responsive and helpful.
bob was great big help
Located within walking distance of historic downtown Kona and good sized one bedroom with kitchen, living area and balcony but could use quite a bit of updating. Racks in dishwasher and refrigerator were rusty. Dishwasher racks even had prongs missing with rust quite noticeable. I was a bit concerned about washing dishes. Sheets were worn and pilled which made for an uncomfortable night sleep. Ceiling fan in the bedroom was broken and could not adjust speed so it was either full speed or off. Toilet seat was peeling. Snorkel gear was broken and unusable. Beach chairs, umbrella and ice chest were nice but again beach towels were pretty worn. Quite pricey for what it is. Don't think I would stay here again.
The property is in a great location. We walked to eat and shop and we could see and hear the ocean from the large lanai. The condo was spacious and clean. My only complaint would be the bed. It definitely needs to be upgraded. Very soft and uncomfortable. But the rest of the condo made up for the lack of comfort with the bed. Would stay again if they got a new bed.
We stayed during Christmas break. Place is corner unit, have ocean views , right next to swimming pool. Loved the Mac nut chocolate host kept for us. I think apartment complex is little old and worn out but unit was well maintained. Room had AC in living room but not sure if it worked, we didn't need to switch on in Dec.
Erica was very responsive and sweet.
Internet was a bit iffy but we were there during the rain storm there was power cut in Kona n internet issues that week.
Overall we loved our stay and definitely come back.
Beach chair, umbrella n snorkeling gear was really thoughtful.
Pros: Excellent location, beautiful view from the lanai. Walkable beaches, restaurants, shops. The house had necessary amenities, utensils, functioning appliances.
Cons: Bedroom windows don't seal, don't block any noise, not even voices of people walking by talking normally. Lot of corrosion inside the property. Dishwasher functions but completely corroded. Windows handles, locks and sliding door rails etc affected because of corrosion.
Great location, great communication with the owner and she was very responsive and helpful. We loved Kona and the location of this property. It was close to everything. We are already planning our next trip.
As advertised. Smooth check in and check out process. Lovely views and well maintained pool and cabana common area. Also, pantry is stocked with essentials (though olive oil bottle was empty). A tray of treats and goodies is a nice touch. Overall, we would recommend.
This condo was in a great location walking distance to everything! The condo was clean, nice and comfortable.
we like staying at the reef we have stayed in several units on the property
My family enjoyed our stay and the Kona Reef. It is in a great location and close to downtown, a short walk.
The ceiling fan in bedroom was stuck on high. No way to change it. The a/c wasn’t big enough to circulate to front of condo.
Kitchen was fully stocked of dishes and utensils 👍
The bathroom needed more shelving for personal items.
Didn’t like the lizard little things crawling on the kitchen countertop 😱
This was a great place to stay in the Kona area. The host Erica was very accommodating and communicative. Place was well kept and met all expectations. It was centrally located and had a nice view of the ocean’s crashing waves. Highly recommend.
Very clesn and fully furnished condo, including wssher & dryer.
Nice and clean with a wonderful view. Loved the treats left for us. Thanks for having binoculars. Fun to look out over the water. We had a very relaxing stay. Bed was very comfortable.
Booking and check in process super easy. Had a great time. We’ll be back.
Very nice location. The unit was nice and everything was labeled and easy to find. It even included the use of beach items like chairs and snorkel gear. Nice view from the patio.
Relaxing great location
This condo is in a great location, walking distance to great restaurants and amenities. View was fantastic. My husband and I really enjoyed sitting and watching the waves, which during our stay, put on a great show. Many thanks for the treats, they were much appreciated. Would highly recommend this unit, our only negative was we didn’t stay longer! Will hopefully come back. Mahalo.
Property location was convenient. Short drive to beaches, shopping, restaurants. Dishwasher was old and didn't clean properly first time, but second time worked.
Beautiful place to create new ohana memories with everything you need.
We really enjoyed staying here. The condo was clean, well stocked and in a great location. The owner was very responsive when contacted. Would definitely stay again. Thank you!
The condo needs a good cleaning, dust hanging from the ceilings, walls dirty, screens did not fit and dirty, curtains were dirty, you get the idea!
Everything about this place was excellent, will definitely stay again! Super close to town, lots of parking, all the amenities, great AC/fans, clean and updated unit. Thanks for a great stay!
I stayed at the condo for 4 nights as a solo traveler and found it very comfortable and had all the comforts of home. I liked being able to meal prep in the well stocked kitchen, the washer/dryer in-unit was so nice to have and allowed me to pack light. Having beach chairs, boogie boards, and beach umbrella for a day at the beach was perfect! Will definitely book again when my travels take me back to the Big Island!
We were very unsatisfied with this unit. The floors were so dirty that our feet were black from walking on them. The kitchen was OK- we were right next to the pool entrance gate which slammed open and closed all the time. The towel rack fell off in our hands and we had to fix it. The place needs painting badly and the overall building needs repair and washing from bird crap falling on the exterior walls. This is a place that draws mostly older seniors so if you are younger than 60 you will not want to stay here.
Stayed in early Jan and was worried about being so close to town in a fairly big complex. It was a lovely stay. Friendly staff and residents. Quiet during quiet hours. Easy walk to town for exercise/food. Pool/jacuzzi, grounds, unit were clean and very well cared for. I was up early every morning for coffee on Lanai with great view of ocean and daily property manager came by to maintain pool. Could watch surfers, boats and whale spouts. Grills were clean. Property had plenty of cooking/eating utensils, toaster, coffee pot, microwave, dishwasher and W/D. AC in living room worked so could cool during heat of the day. Bedroom fan is not adjustable so on strong or off, but we did fine with it. No swimming beach on property, but boggie boarding/surfing next door and nearby swimming/snorkeling sites. Would return to same site again. Mahalo
We felt the property was perfect for 2 adults and 2 kids. We would stay there again for sure and would recommend it. Based on the price we paid, it was good value too. An easy walk into town, the pool was solid, no complaints.
Our family of four had a great 2 night stay. We especially enjoyed the pool and ocean access. The kids loved exploring the tide pools and catching many sea creatures. The unit is clean and stocked with all of the essentials. Chocolate mac nuts are always a nice touch.
This condo is in a great location with a pretty view from the balcony of the pool and ocean. Walking distance to the downtown area is an added bonus. The owners communicated quickly and answered all our questions prior to renting. The unit has lots of beach accessories you’ll need. The only downside is the mattress is soft.
This was a really good place to kick off a trip to the Big Island of Hawaii. The apartment was clean and comfortable and the kitchen was set up for everything we could need. The hosts left us lots of yummy treats which we happily snacked on during our trip. The air conditioner was key on the hot days. The pool and jacuzzi are amazing and no matter the time of day the water was great. Some things to know that aren't the best is that, 1- while there is a stunning view of the ocean, there is no beach access anywhere nearby. It would have been nice to have a suggestion on where we could actually get in the water in a relatively nearby place. We didn't find a spot until we were on our way out of town. 2- The pull out sofa bed is VERY uncomfortable. My friend who I was traveling with figured out a position that helped her avoid the hard support bar running across it beneath the thin cushion, but there is no way I could have slept on it. Other than that it was great! Definitely worth the price.
Did not have to contact the property manager, but had to rate it. Everything was set up ahead of time. We have absolutely no complaints. The property was as advertised. We were not looking for a resort experience, we were looking for a place to relax after a day of exploring the island and this was perfect. We look forward to visiting again, and hopefully can get the same place.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Right on the ocean and with a pool was perfect. The apartment was clean and had everything we needed. Thank you.
Close enough to the store and restaurants on Ali'i Drive to walk but far enough to get some quiet time enjoying the coast.
My husband and I stayed here because we wanted to be close to downtown and the ocean. This ocean front property was perfect. There is a small beach next door that was nice to hit up when we weren’t up for venturing too far. Very close to shops and restaurants.
This vacation rental is well situated and in great walking distance in Kona! Kitchen is well supplied (which was necessary to cook at home since reservations were very hard to get in town) and two beach towels and snorkelling equipment as convenient. We are Also vacation rental super hosts and found this property a great getaway from The East side of big island. We will definitely be back :-) Mahalo!
This is a great little place very close to Kailua-Kona and several beaches along the coast.
We all enjoyed ourselves....loved the place
Great location, easy 1 mile walk to town. Breakfast on the lani was wonderful. Kitchen was well equipped.
We will rent again.
