Kitchen dishes are in need of replacement. The coffee maker did not work. Loved the actual unit, kitchen just needs some updating.

My wife & I enjoyed our stay in so much Kona, in no small part to the awesome condo we stayed in.

Very nice property and location to the downtown area. Pool and spa is very nice. We enjoyed our time. Only one thought is that after being closed up for a few hours there tends to be a slightly musty smell. It goes away quickly once the door-wall and entry doors are opened. This would not prevent us recommending the property. It was very clean and well kept. Kitchen and bathroom are both nice. Ocean view is spectacular. Leslie is good to work with and answered all our questions. My wife and I very much enjoyed our stay.

The oceanfront view from our condo was exceptional. We were able to watch the ocean and its magic every day. We were close to many amenities on AliI Drive which was also very handy. Our condo had everything we could have possibly needed and Leslie was easy to access and took exceptional care of us! Mahalo Leslie and Kailua-Kona!

This oceanfront condo has beautiful views and is walking distance to downtown Kona. An array of restaurants…Huggo’s is our personal favorite. We had a great time sitting on the lanai every morning watching surfers. Definitely recommend!!!

Review This location will always rent because of where it is located! It’s in a beautiful scenic area right in the heart of Kailua Kona, right on the ocean. The sound of the waves crashing right outside our lanai was lovely! The view was/is spectacular! There are things that I look for when booking a premium (meaning expensive!) short term rental, such as location but also the quality of amenities like sheets, towels, kitchen furnishings, access to additional items (cooler, toilet paper, paper towels etc.) The place could benefit from a good overhaul and it feels small upon entering. The Air Conditioner dis not cool very well, but there is adequate fans to help circulate the air, it got hot on a couple of days even with everything shut and the AC on high. The amenities were most disappointing, the beach towels provided were threadbare and scarce, there weren’t additional sheets for the bed, after the second night we changed them due to an unpleasant aroma coming from the bedding or the bathroom, the coffee grinder didn’t work, and some of the pans were warped completely unusable. Upon check in, we were provided a building address but not the unit number which was frustrating, and delayed our usage. The property is good, the pool is cool but usable and the hot tub was nice, Getting into the pool was a bit dodgy, as the key doesn’t immediately open the lock. We spent 8 days in the condo and I do feel it was overpriced for what we got for our money!

The location of this Kona Reef unit is very good. The unit is ocean front and very nice. The complex is quiet and has a very nice pool area and an immaculate BBQ area. The complex is a short walk to many restaurants and shops. The owner was helpful and easy to reach if needed. The unit is well stocked, the furniture is nice and very comfortable. The bed is very comfortable as well. The air conditioner struggles to cool the unit. It kinda works but not very well. Once we received instructions to the unit we also were requested to start a load of laundry prior to leaving. I thought that is what the cleaning deposit was for. There is a nice park next to the unit but unfortunately it has several homeless people living there. Overall this is a very nice place to stay.

We loved where we stayed! We spent every morning on the lanai! The surf was high, so we were treated to surfing right outside our window!

Ahhh… the lanai! A great place to watch the boarders and surfers tackle some pretty good waves right in front of you! Or to eat suppers watching glorious sunsets! Or the daily passing of spinner dolphins and multi manned canoeists (bring binoculars for close up viewing). This unit is very well located with a small beach right next door and shopping or restaurants within walking distance. Groceries were nearby with several store options. A car rental is recommended for visiting so much more on the island and for getting to some of the best snorkeling spots where we swam with turtles and unicorn fish! Highly recommend the trip to snorkel with the Manta rays! Truly an experience. This rental unit is very well equipped with cooking and beach gear. Very enjoyable cooling off at the pool where you can lounge within full view of the ocean. We found Leslie to be very responsive to our needs and would definitely choose this lovely unit again on our return!

Perfect location on Ali'i Drive. Easy walking distance the shops and restaurants and the best coffee (Kona Haven). Also only an hour drive from Waimea north or South Point south. And you can't beat the view from the lanai -- right onto the beach, always plenty to see: surfers, rowers and of course amazing sunsets. If we ever go back to Hawaii, this is where we'd stay.

I LOVED staying here!! Everything morning I would have my coffee in the lanai with the ocean mere feet away! I would watch the surfers and listen to the waves crashing. Heaven! The unit was fully stocked with everything we needed! Next time I am back in Kona I will stay here! Thank you!!!

This was truly an oceanside condo, with the lanai being 30 feet from the waves. We nearly lived on the lanai, watching morning sunrises and evening sunsets and limitless views of the ocean. The location in Kona was just right, with a 10-minute walk down Ali'i Drive to restaurants and shops. The unit was clean and well-appointed, and the condo complex and pool area well-maintained and never crowded. Leslie, our host, was always available for questions, extrememely pleasant and helpful. Overall, a great experience and a place we would return to.

Leslie is a wonderful host and her condo is a perfect place to stay in Kona. The condo is well equipped, clean, comfortable and convenient. Kona Reef is a very short walk to town, restaurants, shopping and multiple activities. Aloha and Mahalo to Leslie for sharing her perfect place in Kona!

Great location. Easy walk to town. Outstanding view from lanai and living room. Great sunsets. Weather was perfect…low .80’s daytime and 70’s at night. Kitchen well stocked.

My husband and I had a great time here! That daily view of the ocean was perfect. We sat on the lanai every morning and evening to enjoy the view. We bought food to make our own meals most of the time. Stopped at Costco and stocked up before we arrived to the condo. Kitchen is fully equipped. We walked to the main restaurant/shopping area daily, not far at all. Parking was no problem. We parked in the structure. Weather was perfect so we hardly needed the AC. We just opened the sliders and bedroom windows and got the perfect cross breeze. Washer and dryer were a plus, don't over pack! It is really quiet here, aside from the ocean sound I would definitely recommend this place!
