Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was very clean. I was very happy with the location. I was more than satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: You can't beat the view! Amazing wide panoramic view. Love the screens on the front door and Lanai so you can get cross breezes. Plenty of towels, beach chairs. Kitchen is small but well stocked. The location into the little downtown area was great - it's less than a half mile walk to great restaurants and shops.

We loved overall setting of this property, overlooking the ocean, watching many sunsets, fully functioning kitchen to make a quick meal and convenient walking distance to local shops and restaurants.

The split A/C was so much nicer especially in the bedroom which was now so bright and cheery. Putting in the solid glass window was a great improvement there. We loved the view, the location, the pool and the amenities! Thank you for checking on us to make sure we were happy! So nice to have great customer service and such a wonderful place to stay.

We enjoyed our time at this condo and our first stay on the BI. It is conveniently located and beautiful views etc. hope to come back again. Issues - 1) Wi-Fi could not be accessed given the information displayed and provided by mgmt. and cell service was only useable from the balcony due to stone structure and no Wi-Fi access. Only here for 4 days at this rental and didn’t have time to mess w trying to get it working. Seemed to be issues with the Wi-Fi box overheating even though it did not seem to be close to anything? So constant message appeared on TV screen. Didn’t bother us though as listened to music on TV that was playing when we entered the condo otherwise busy outside. 2) bathroom sink had been clogged probably w sand from something rinsed out by a prior guest so sink drained very slow 3) floor looked clean but upon removing our shoes outside the door and walking around inside barefooted it was very dirty - possibly prior guests either tracked in sand or dirt or did not remove their shoes and /or clean floor prior to leaving. Most of those issues might not have been immediately noticeable to cleaning staff or mgmt, We did let them know when we checked out. Otherwise no issues w our stay and would consider staying here again.

Reviewer Comments: This oceanfront unit was wonderful. The view was spectacular. The unit had everything you need to cook your own meals, and have cocktails on the lanai. Sunsets were sublime from the lawn and lanai. It was right next to Honl beach, had a nice pool and hot tub with a grill area. Once I figured out the parking and stairs everything was easily accessible. How soon can I come back!?

During our visits we really have enjoyed being able to relax on the Lanai and watching surfers, boogie boarders, turtles and our favorite, AMAZING sunsets. We also like that we can walk into town from this condo. I would highly recommend!

This was in a perfect location, within walking distance to the lively downtown area with great restaurants, shops, bars, beautiful beaches, and awesome views. However, it's hard to beat the view from the rental! It's right on the water, an incredible sunset spot. We spent alot of time on the lanai just watching the waves and feeling the breeze. The property was very clean when we arrived, everything worked well and was in nice condition. Loved the furniture and the decorations. We had great service from our contact, it was an easy process, and overall we just got a really great vibe from the place. This was honestly the perfect place to stay and we highly recommend it. Already looking forward to our next stay!

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was very satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: This condo is WOW! Better than described or pictured! It definitely greeted us with a welcome to Hawaii vibe as soon as we walked in the front door with gorgeous Hawaii style furniture. This place is not over furnished. It's practical, comfortable and gorgeous! The bedroom furniture is SUPER BEAUTIFUL! Although we kept the slider open most of the day and evenings to enjoy the view, sunsets, surfers, cool ocean breezes and sound of the waves, we appreciated having an awesome AC system in the bedroom and living room area as needed. The AC is super quiet and efficient, kitchen is equipped with more than enough supplies needed to prepare meals & cocktails and all the floors are travertine stone tiles! (No nasty carpet!) We also loved having a washer/dryer and spacious walk-in travertine shower. The view is incredible and the location is perfect! The property is a 5min walk from some of the best restaurants and bars in town (Huggos, Don Beachcombers, A Bays, Humpy's, Ocean's Lavern's) and directly next to a popular beach enjoyed by yoga classes, surfers, and sun bathers! There's a beautiful quiet oceanfront pool, hot tub and grills. Other guest were very friendly too. Easy to find, awesome condo, super conveniently located. We didn't need to leave or go far from this property to feel like we were on our dream Hawaii vacation! Highly recommended!

Kona Reef served our needs and the location was perfect for the Ironman World Championship. The furnishings could use some updating and the bed was one of the worst I've ever slept in. The kitchen was not stocked (most every other VRBO property we have stayed in provided basics like salt and pepper, trash bags, dishwashing soap, etc.) There was no soap for the bathroom or kitchen and no facial tissues. There needed to be detailed instructions for the TV. It constantly went off and took forever to re-boot. The view from the balcony was nice and the bathroom was nice. Love having a walk in shower. And really appreciated the washer and dryer. Loved the location but this unit could use a little love.

Overall, I recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Fall asleep and wake to the sound of the ocean. As you can see from pictures the ocean is a stones throw from your deck. Beautiful sunsets every evening. Just a short walk to all that downtown Kona has to offer and yet far enough away that you are relaxing in an island paradise. The property manager was helpful and efficient and provided helpful information about activities. The unit was clean and comfortable. A JOYOUS VACATION GETAWAY

The view was spectacular having the ocean in front of us. The deficiencies were: no available closet space; bedroom small, dark & dingy; water heater set at luke warm, trouble with TV set up & if have mobility issues there are steps making it difficult to lift/move suitcases.

1st time booking with VRBO, booked this property for 5 nights. Check in was easy, they email you all the required information. When I arrived to the property, you could tell it was a bit outdated but that was ok as long as we had a clean space. The room is as pictured, great view outside the balcony. The only issue we had is that the bed was dirty. It reeked! You could assume by the smell that the linens had not been changed. I tried to see if we could deal with it but when I sat in the bed I could smell the stench of body odor. It literally felt like I was laying next to the previous guest. I immediately tried to call the property and didn’t get an answer from their main number or their after hours number. I tried a few times and ultimately left a message. I was hoping they’d answer because they had just called me letting me know they were going to fix the broken fan in the bedroom. We needed them to at least change the linens. Never received a call until the final day of checkout. Had to rebook out of pocket for another location. No resolution from the property manager.

Nice little condo with an amazing view. The property’s furniture and linens etc could be updated but it was clean and convenient to places to eat and go. There is a beach right next door that is a 2 minute walk but not great to swim in due to waves….perfect for surfing and boarding. Very clean and quiet which was nice because I was in town for work.

The location of the unit cannot be beat. It was truly wonderful. The pictures, listing and reviews gave an accurate description of the property. It is true that it can become warm with the limited A/C but the view was worth it. We slept on the murphy bed in the living room and kept the screen open and were completely comfortable. The view and location were perfect! We enjoyed being able to walk to restaurants in town. The pool is updated and very nice. And parking is a breeze. Truly this was a beautiful vacation.

Very nice property. It is clean, well supplied, and was very comfortable for my family of three. The view from the deck is priceless as one is approximately 15 meters from the water! The pool/jacuzzi and grilling area is all within a 1 minute walk. The beach is adjacent to the property and was very nice yet uncrowned. The location is perfect. A short 8-10 minute walk will have you at the beginning of a very nice restaurant and club area. There are grocery stores, pharmacies, souvenir shops, all vert close. Highly recommend this property.

My wife and I stayed here for several days this month, and I'd have to say that it was a pleasure. It is in a really good location - "downtown" is a short walk away, and the amenities of the condo building were excellent (pool, hot tub, grills, etc.). The parking was also excellent. The unit itself is very well cared for - with most of what you need already stocked for you. The rental agency was very professional, and I'm certain that they would have been right there to address any issues that we might have had (if we had had any -- which we didn't). This condo was a winner.

Perfect location. Ocean is literally out the front. Property was clean upon arrival. The only reason not a five star rating. First, the refrigerator is clearly in need of updating and is loud enough when running ( which is nearly non stop ) to be annoying. Secondly, the air conditioner is controlled by a timer / switch on the wall. That means that approximately every hour, someone has to turn the air back on. That is ridiculous when trying to keep it cool during the nite. There is a sign next to the switch that says “ help conserve energy “. Not buying it.

Rating Details: The property manager was very helpful. The vacation rental was spotless. I was very happy with the location. I was satisfied with the condition of the vacation rental. Overall, I do not recommend this vacation rental. Reviewer Comments: Great location and view. Nice unit with everything you need. There was an electrical issue on day one that took down the wifi and television service but a call to the management company got somebody out to fix it the next day. The bedroom is located against the exterior corridor and the windows are a style that does not seal making it seem like anybody in the corridor was almost in the room with you. Deal breaker issue was a 60 minute timer on the AC unit. This means every time you leave you return to a hot space that takes a long time to cool. It means that when you are there you have to get up every hour and add another 60 minutes to the timer. The space heats up quickly when the AC is off so you have to get up several times during the night to add another 60 minutes. It is good to save energy but not at the cost of relaxation and sleep.

Our family of four (including two teenage boys) really enjoyed this unit. Clean and the Murphy bed was great - enough room though we were not in the unit often. This is an ocean view unit about one story up - open the balcony door and see and hear the waves! Easy walk to town. Perfect for us!
