It was nighttime when we checked into the unit for our 3 week stay. Daylight revealed dirty and stained carpeting in the living room and bedroom. We attempted to reach the property manager several times but could only leave a message. On the 4th call someone finally answered and my husband informed them that the carpet was filthy and totally unacceptable. The person said they would arrange for the carpet to be cleaned. 3 days later they called to say that the carpets would be cleaned in 2 more days. We had expected a carpet cleaning company, but only a husband and wife team showed up, with a non-commercial cleaner. They worked diligently and removed most of the major stains, but the carpet was still dark and dingy. The unit as a whole was also dark and dim, with only one lamp in the living room, and two small light bulbs in the ceiling fixture. The dining table was located in a dim corner with no overhead lighting, so we ate all our meals at the kitchen area bar. The kitchen was fairly well-equipped, but lacked several essential items which we purchased. We "gifted" the unit a glass baking dish so we could cook in the microwave, and also bought several oven hot pads. The bedroom was very small and lacked a dresser. The clothing that could not be hung up in the closet had to remain in our suitcases on the closet floor. The windows lacked any sort of curtain or shades, and the bedroom remained lit at night due to the outside lighting. We would not reccomend this unit.

Unit was below average at best. Pro’s: good location, (side) view of ocean, nice condo complex. Con’s: carpet is seriously dirty, stains everywhere, musty smell - really needed replacing. Minimum kitchen supplies (pots pans, plates - etc), one of the plates had been glued back together, drywall coming apart in bathroom, mold in shower, bed had serious crown in center so you felt like you would roll off either side. Stains on walls and mirror in bedroom. We didn’t have a lot of choices as we booked late and it was the holidays. We liked Kona Reef but would not stay in this unit again.

Loved the complex and amenities. Easy walk to town and beach. Pool was great as was the availability of outdoor cooking. Unit could use some maintenance and upgrading.

The check-in process was smooth, and it was easy to find parking. The location and views of the ocean are great. Short walk to downtown Kona that has many shops and restaurants. We also enjoyed the pool area to relax by the ocean and watch the sunsets.

Overall we had a nice stay here. It is a bit darker than the pictures depict, and it is an older unit. That said, the bed was comfy, the kitchen was decently stocked, and the view of the beach was stunning!

Very comfortable, great location. We enjoyed sitting on the balcony watching the waves. It was easy to park on site, and the walk to the shopping/dining area in the harbor was easy.

Beautiful views from this fabulous home! We were a group of 8 downhill and X-country skiers. The house is very spacious, plenty of room for our group!! Hot tub was fabulous after a long day!!

The security screen door is extremely difficult to open. I could not open it. Husband had to fight with it. Carpets need to be cleaned.

Really liked the complex and location. The condo had a nice view of the beach. Very comfortable with adequate appliances. We ended up buying a couple camp chairs and leaving them there because there was nothing to take to the beach. We met other people in the complex who were paying a bit less for VRBO rentals. I may shop a little more carefully next time. Definitely would stay there again.

I could tell from the photos that the condo is a bit dated so I had an idea of what I was getting. Still, the condo was much darker than I expected or like. But it checked a couple of other boxes - a view of the ocean and small sandy beach, centrally located on Ali'i drive near Kona town. The downside was that there was noise from the road and the kitchen was not very well equipped. Overall, the unit met my needs because I did not spend much time in it! The communication with the property managers was great.

Kitchen could have been better stocked, although I may be fairly picky as I can't imagine living without a decent salad spinner. I like sleeping to the sound of the ocean, the unit had a very comfortable sofa bed. The decking outside was being repaired so there was a lot of noise during the day. Ample parking. Lots of unhoused in the area and one in particular in the beach area below the unit who was very load and aggressive. I understand that the host has no control over this but it is worth knowing if you are concerned.

The property was in a good location and we had a great view of the beach/park besides the property. The cooking amenities were good . The lanai was great. My only complaint was the bed. It was dated and not comfortable to sleep on and the pillows were not great. It would be nice to have a kettle as we drink tea and not coffee and boiling water in a pot it is hard to pour into a cup. Thanks for allowing us to comment.
