Our overall stay was good, no complaints. The room and property provided a fair value for the accommodations offered. The taxes and fees have become a significant portion of the rental cost, this is unfortunate.
The property was exactly what we needed for a kid free vacation. It was comfortable and well appointed. We slept great and enjoyed spending time there. And the views were spectacular. I would highly recommend this property!
Great location very close to downtown Kona and shops and restaurants. Building is a bit older, but great views. Unit was clean and had everything.
Great location to explore Kona. Parking was never an issue. Great view of the water right off the balcony.
Location was excellent. Sort walk to amenities. Clean, quiet and very comfortable.
Concierge Dave was wonderful in planning our activities. The view from the balcony is spectacular.
Me and my husband stood here for a week on our honeymoon. Best decision ever! Right in the town, easy walk to everything. Clean, the best view in the house. The grill area is amazing. We made many dinners. We will be back!
Great place to stay and hear the surf while being close to town. Can walk to dinner.
I would definitely stay here again
Exactly as pictured. Very nice accommodations. Easy walk to town.
We really enjoyed our stay here. Also, David the concierge was wonderful to work with for booking activities.
Oceanfront and a short walk to town
The unit is well appointed and maintained. The ocean view from the lanai brought sunset and breezes. An easy walk to the village and restaurants. My granddaughter enjoyed pool time when not at the ocean. Would highly recommend a stay here.
Easy walk to town and view was great with small beach next to property.
We really enjoyed our stay at Kona Reef. The locations was within walking distance of the main drag along the coast giving you access to a variety of restaurants and shops. Even better was the view from the balcony. Woke up to a the sounds of the waves and a beautiful view. It was also great to relax at the end of the day and watch the sunset.
Unit was clean and everything worked. We have stayed at most of the units at Kona Reef. We did note that other than a 1/3rd bottle of salt, there were no condiments requiring each to be bought. While we don’t expect all items possible to be provided, most other units provide enough items to supplement one’s enjoyment without each item being procured and those not, we always procure and donate to the unit. Just some food for thought. The Kona Coast folks were very friendly and accommodated most any request. They are a good management company. Thank you. Aloha🤙.
I’ve stayed T this property before. Stayed at a number of units at Kona Reef. This until is not the newest and most upgraded, but it’s clean, great location and affordable. Thanks again for another wonderful stay!
I don’t ever write a review on a condo but this time I felt I needed to. We rented the condo for 12 nights. We had rented another condo unit down the street but we noticed they didn’t have an elevator so we changed our reservation to stay at the Kona Reef because the description clearly lists an elevator. There is an elevator but for unit A32 you must also go up a flight of stairs. That information was not listed. The unit was also not very well equipped in the kitchen having only large plates and bowls and only one towel, 1 rag, one used sponge and one crocheted pot holder. There were no beach chairs or ice chests to use. We have never rented a unit on the beach that did not have some beach equipment. There were few supplies such as dishwasher pods (we had 4), garbage bags (we had 3) and facial tissue (4-5 in the box). When asked about this they quickly reminded us they only supply start up supplies. We are there for 12 days. They finally agreed to bring additional supplies out.
The AC did not work from day one. We called Kona Coast and they had us to try a couple of things before they sent out the maintenance crew. First time I have ever been asked to find the breaker switch and reset the breaker. Kona Coast brought in a portable unit that must be vented to the outside, so you have this contraption with a hose vent and a 6” piece of wood the height of the door that fits in your sliding door, (therefore your door does not close all the way). This blows hot air onto the lanai so you need to adjust where you are sitting outside. Obviously this contraption has been used before as the board has the screwed on piping to vent outside. The unit was very loud! They also brought a swamp cooler for the bedroom but it smelled real bad and had the cord going across the floor so we did not use it.
We have rented many condos in the islands for many years.
Kona Coast Vacations did refund us 10% of our per night fee (less all other fees) for the trouble with the AC.
Condo was excellent!
Direct oceanfront. A32 has beautiful, new living room furniture. Kona Coast Vacations (KCV) was prompt & professional in resolving maintenance & small housekeeping issues. Mahalo! A hui hou!
The ocean front view with this condo was amazing. We watched the sunset almost every night from the balcony.
Condo was clean. Kitchen was well stocked with all the basics. Great location, close to shopping and dining.
Only downfall was the bed. Very uncomfortable, something the owners should look into replacing!
Would recommend this place!
If you‘re thinking about booking this property - this is your sign to do so!
We had the best time, the apartment is very clean, in the ideal location (5-10 mins from all the restaurants and shops), the view is spectacular as you can watch surfers and turtles from the balcony! 10/10! Would love to come back soon.
Love this condo. I needed time to grieve . And this place gave me the environment to intergrate my new life. I’ll be back
You know when you have the perfect view when you never turn on the TV. Loved every minute of my stay.
Everything was nice and clean and well maintained. The AC in both the bedroom and the living area was great on humid days.
We loved this location and the view from the patio. We watched surfers everyday from the patio and beautiful sunsets each evening. It was great to be walking distance to restaurants and shops. The kitchen had everything we needed and having AC was perfect after long days out snorkeling and sight seeing.
Birds were insanely chirping before 6am, and you cannot close the windows completely to bock out noise, also AC would make this weird noise all night long . had to use earplugs in order to sleep
