Beautiful place and un obstructed views
The views were excellent, right on the water. We had coffee and cocktails on the lanai. Everything we needed was in the condo. We walked into town for shopping and dinner. We drove around the island for tours of coffee farms and art shops. It was quiet and relaxing.
The hosts were so friendly and helpful from day one! The condo was absolutely wonderful. We appreciate a place where you can be on vacation but still be able to cook and make coffee and have a leisurely start to your day. The condo had everything we needed. Beach chairs, mats, towels, kitchen essentials and most importantly, stunning views and a beach right next door! It was magical. We will be back and hope we can still book this condo… hopefully the word won’t get out too much 😃
The view every morning was absolutely amazing. The kitchen and bathroom was updated and nice. It would have been nice to have had an air conditioner in the bedroom, but everything else was great. Walking distance to restaurants and shops. The pool was always nice at the end of the day.
Location, accommodation, amenities super.
Prefect place. The view was wonderful. The condo had everything you would want.
We had a nice stay here. The view was incredible!! There were also a few beach items that the kids were able to use during our stay, which was nice. Laundry was convenient as well. Very close to the town and places to eat.
Besides the perfect location and beautiful furnishings this condo had all the amenities and then some that anybody could ask for. From the washer / dryer, all the kitchen necessities and utensils, detergent, sun screen, great towels and anything you could ask for in the bathroom ... I could go on and on but I think I made my point. I have never stayed in a rental that was that well organized.
And to top it off Anneliese, knowing that we were coming in late the first night, had left us fruit and some other foods and drinks and other supplies which was not expected or necessary but was much appreciated and again showed her attention to make sure we had a wonderful stay. She also communicated with us from before we got there, throughout or stay and made sure we got on our way safely after our wonderful stay that we had wish had lasted longer.
Everything we needed was here! Luxury towels, comfortable bed, beach towels, cooler, beach chairs and umbrella. Drying rack for clothes and Hawaii books. Beautifully decorated and updated. Bathroom has everything you need. We will recommend to everyone we know and pkan to go back!
Place was as advertised. AC in the master was very nice. Lanaii ceiling fan did not work though. Would stay again.
The accommodations were nice. Host was responsive to needs. Beautiful sunsets every night from patio.
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!
This was the most beautiful place. Walking distance to town and a nice quiet retreat
If you want to spend your days directly in front the ocean, listening to the crashing surf while you fall asleep - then this is your home away from home. This unit is a spacious one bedroom, two bathroom (tub and stand up shower) ground floor condo that is close enough to Kona to walk into town for something to eat but far enough away to be quiet. The pool and deck are oceanfront and a wonderful place to relax between excursions. Cooking in the kitchen with the huge island is a great option to eating out. The private patio is a perfect spot to eat all your meals or just relax and watch the surfers. The patio faces west so there is a nightly sunset to enjoy. The host is warm and welcoming and always available to answer questions. You are greeted with a welcome basket full of island treats and a clean and comfortable home. Parking is easy and safe. Fans and air conditioning cool the living space and bedroom well if needed. A breeze always flows through with the windows and patio door open. The aloha spirit is alive and well here.
Absolutely fabulous property. Well apportioned. We wanted for nothing.
This was our first time stating in a VRBO and could not have had a better time. Fantastic location being located right on the oceanfront. The condo was only a few minutes walk to town for shopping or dining out. Definitely will be returning in the future.
This condo is so special. We enjoyed watching a beautiful sunset every day while we stayed. We also loved to watch dolphins jumping around from the lanai.
Minutes to walk to nice restaurants, too.
We would love to back to this condo if we will visit big island again!
Thank you so much Anne!
I appreciated for your quick response!
My family had an absolutely AMAZING vacation! Perfect location with wonderful views.
We really enjoyed our stay at Kona reef. The location was great as we could walk into town and it is right on the ocean.
The condo is fabulous! Very clean. Close to downtown, easy walking distance. The view is out of this world! The only caution I would add ia that the whole complex is not handicap accessible. No matter which floor you stay on you have to climb stairs. Other than that this is a phenomenal place to stay!
I recently had the pleasure of staying at a remarkable Vrbo property in Kona, Hawaii, and it truly exceeded all expectations. This vacation rental provided an incredible backdrop for an unforgettable Hawaiian adventure. Location: The property's location in Kona was nothing short of spectacular. Situated just steps away from the pristine shores of the Pacific Ocean, we were treated to breathtaking views and the soothing sounds of the waves throughout our stay. Being conveniently close to Kona's vibrant town center allowed us to explore local shops, restaurants, and attractions with ease.Accommodations: The rental itself was a true gem. Impeccably designed and tastefully furnished, the interior exuded a perfect blend of modern comfort and Hawaiian charm. The fully equipped kitchen made preparing meals a breeze, and the open-concept living space offered plenty of room to relax and unwind. The highlight was undoubtedly the private lanai.Overall Experience: Staying at this Vrbo property in Kona was an absolute privilege. The combination of prime location, top-notch accommodations, and outstanding hospitality created the perfect recipe for an unforgettable getaway. Whether we were exploring the vibrant town, lounging by the pool, or immersing ourselves in the island's natural beauty, every moment was cherished. I wholeheartedly recommend this Vrbo rental to anyone seeking an exceptional Hawaiian escape. Mahalo to the property owners and Vrbo for making our time in Kona so magical.
The location and view from this condo can't be beat. Short and safe walking distance from Kona shopping and eats but just far enough away to be out of the never ending crowds and road noise. The balcony is stellar. The view is panoramic. The sunsets beautiful.
The kitchen has everything needed to cook with which helps defray the food costs of the Big Island.
Bathroom is small but efficient although I think could benefit with another towel hook. The bedroom stays very warm but does have a ceiling fan.
The wifi kind of works. We were able to connect to Google and our airline app but our other apps would not engage. Bonus, there is a large drawer of books and, as a reader, I was pleased. I left a book I finished and took a new one. The owner is so nice and is quick to provide info about condo and island. The facility has BBQ grills, nice clean pool and chairs. The facility is safe. Yes, I would stay again in this unit.
We loved everything about this VRBO. Easy walk to the beach - just steps outside of the door.
Only issue was only a window unit in master and it was hot!
The condo was amazing and so close to the ocean! Lives watching the sunset and seeing people come out to watch as well. The men blowing the conch shells to honour the day was so cool. We enjoyed watching people catching waves on the boogies boards too. Loved our stay. It made our vacation so relaxing and special.
The location is a dream- you are steps away from the ocean and can hear it. Love the floor to ceiling windows! The condo itself is spacious, clean and very well stocked. Besides the basics, we appreciated the beach towels, cooler and other beach items; and the local treats! (thank you!) We really appreciated the responsiveness of the management company, who was always very prompt in replying and courteous. Parking was very easy. We are so happy that we found you and can't wait to come back!!!
Just gorgeous! The view is breathtaking! Every detail of this condo has had thought put into it, along with making guests feel like they are “at home.” Would definitely come again.
The condo was perfect. Pictures do not do justice for the lovely details in the woodwork and glass. It was perfect for the 2 of us. Parking in the garage was wonderful, quiet neighborhood, facilites were nice too. Would come back again
Unit located on quiet corner of building with fantastic ocean view. Well equipped kitchen. Only issue was cable box in main bedroom doesn’t work so no tv in there . ( really did not miss it)
My family of four enjoyed the incredible beach-front condo with all the amenities we needed. It was close to the town center, and the pool was a great escape from the heat. Would definitely stay there again.
Place was very clean with a nice pool and hot tub, also close beach access.
Condo was great, amazing views, great location. Sandy beach next to the building, big clean pool. The condo was very well stocked and the AC in the living room can cool down the entire unit, but not needed with the breeze from the ocean. 5 stars
Our stay in Kona was exceptional. We could not have asked for more. The view from this condo was wonderful— picture perfect. It was well stocked and very clean. It offered everything that was promised. Thank you.
Very well decorated. Actually too decorated LOL. Some items might be too nice for the rental. Well equipment. Nice step out patio. Fantastic view.
A few minor things but they are kind of thing an owner wouldn't know about if they have not stay there. Ceiling fan noise, etc. A grade.
Stayed here with my family (including a 15 year old and 11 year old). The futon was fine for them. We loved the location. Being able to walk to town was really nice for the day after a scuba night dive when we couldn't get too far from Kona. And the view of the sunset from the lanai is THE BEST! The kitchen had everything we needed.
Ended up with roaches. Called owner was told must be the ant traps because they are sweet. That has nothing to do with it, it is all of dirty floors and countertops when we got here. The light coming in at night is so bright you need block out shades. There is mold above the shower head, in the bathroom the fan is gross and floor and counter is dirty. The windows in the bedroom do not close enough to block out any noise. All in all it just needs a make over badly. Our first stay no issues other than the light and window. I’m sorry until this is addressed I can’t recommend this property. Spoke to a few other owners and they all just made upgrades, I suggest that you may want to also.
Very clean. Pictures are exactly like what it looks like. She truly has everything there for you except pizza cutter. This includes spf and bug spray! Would definitely stay and will definitely be recommending them.
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.
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..
Condo was very clean and came with lots of extras that made our stay nice. Beach chairs, umbrellas, boogie board were all helpful. Kitchen items such as oil, nonstick spray, mustard, foils and ziplock baggies were great extras. Loved being able to walk downtown. Only downside was the air conditioning, the bedroom got pretty stuffy until we rigged up a system of fans to funnel air down the hall, but still had to get up a few times during the night to reset the hour long limit on the ac.
Location, location, location! You can’t go wrong with the location of this place. The view from the lanai is simply gorgeous. We spent most mornings out on the lanai eating breakfast and it was a great start to our day. The condo is also conveniently located to all the restaurants and shops. It’s also a short 15-20 minute drive from the Kona airport. We also appreciated the air conditioning unit which did a pretty good job cooling down the place. We arrived to a lovely gift basket filled with cookies, coffee and chocolates. It was such a sweet way to start our vacation! Closets were also fully stocked with everything you need for a beach day, including snorkeling gear which we appreciated.
There were two minor cons to the place. First, I agree with some of the reviews that the floors were pretty dirty. However, the condo was well equipped and there was a swifter mop which I used. It wasn’t a problem after spending some time mopping. The other was that the internet was pretty slow. My husband has to check into the office periodically for work and he couldn’t at the condo due to how slow the internet was. But we are on vacation (as I like to always remind him) and it’s a good excuse to unplug.
Overall we enjoyed our stay and would recommend the place to others. That view is just amazing.
Great location! We loved how easy it was to walk to the beach and walk to downtown. We had a family of four with little ones and were able to all fit. Really appreciated having a high chair and pack and play already there making travel easier for us. We would happily stay here again!
The best equipped place we’ve ever stayed at and fantastic ocean views. Everything was easy and owners were responsive to our calls.
Only slight issue was lack of AC in the apartment and it was fairly humid while we were in Kona. Every room had a fan which helped but it was still warm in the apartment.
We have stayed at the Kona Reef a few times before & chose this unit for the view over Honls Beach to watch our family snorkel. The complex is walking distance to restaurants & shops & 2 farmer markets. The unit had everything we needed for our stay (dishes, utensils, beach towels, beach toys...). We noticed the dishwasher soap drawer was not opening after a wash, & not accessing the soap, so we dropped the soap into the bottom of the tub & rewashed everything again. We let the owner know & they responded quickly with an email. This particular unit is a bit darker than others...not sure if it's the original light fixtures in the hall or the entrance being on a lowered level. It looks like the owners are starting updates...laminate is definitely a better choice for a beach unit than carpet. The bedroom still has an odor possibly in the floorboards or closet. The whole unit could really use a deep cleaning from the baseboards to fans to popcorn ceiling & dust ruffle of the bed. Placing the electrical cords would also help with dust/dirt collection on them. Overall, we really enjoyed our stay. Can't wait to see what this unit will look like with more updates! Thank you!
Loved the whole experience. Sunsets were the bomb!
Perfect second story condo for a couple to stay at that's within walking distance of several shops and restaurants. The place is fully stocked, including items for the beach. Sunsets can be admired right from the balcony. Host provided perfect instructions for easy in and out.
This property was great, had a minor hiccup but it was addressed swiftly and resolved. The unit was perfect for the two of us. Beautiful mornings on the lanai with coffee looking over the ocean. Close proximity to manta ray snorkeling and one of our favorite beaches magic sands. Would book this unit again!
This is a great condo. Beautiful views and centrally located.
This property has the most amazing views!!! Watching the sunsets every night on your own private lanai was awesome!! Only complains I had was the AC broke in the middle of our trip and trying to get a property manager to fix or help seemed to take forever. AC issue was never resolved. Also after our 1st night the circuits in 2 of the 3 bathrooms weren't working. Let property manager know but no follow up. Besides that the place was perfect for a family of 5.
We loved our condo it was so clean and walking distance to kona town
Beautiful views on the balcony. Waves crashing all night (no need for a sleep machine!) Well appointed kitchen, linens, bathroom. Very clean. Fast response from the property owner to questions. Lack of AC was the only downside—not because it was hot, but because it was humid. (We knew there was no AC going in). Nice walk to town through the street closer to the beach—Ali’I Drive is busy but also walkable. Overall a great experience!! Thank you!
Enjoyed our short stay. Sunsets on the lanai were spectacular. Had some of the best snorkeling and seeing the most variety of fish right out front of condo. Definitely worth the stay
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!
Our stay at the Kona Reef was great. It's hard to find a location on the Big Island that has a walkable sandy beach and walk to town and this was it. We traveled with a 6 month old, 3 year old and 6 year old and it was easy maneuvering all around. The best tiki bar is a 10 minute walk and the Royal Kona Resort has some of the best live music line ups on the island.
On top of that, communication with Anne the owner was immediate and thorough. We were super happy and give it 5 stars all around.
Great place, ocean view. Steps away from the beach. Place was comfortable. Loved my stay. I even extended a day. Ken is a fabulous host.
Great oceanfront property. Clean, well stocked, and conveniently located. We loved the beautiful view from the lanai.
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.
The property is very close to water. Fabulous sunset views. Interior decorationing has a 60s 70s tropical decor.Walkimg distance to restaurants bars etc. The ocean view!!!
We had a marvelous time on the big island! The beautiful and roomy condo made it easy to relax after a busy day. Thank you for having beach towels, ice chests and even a big beach umbrella! With the purchase of a few groceries it was perfect! Great kitchen, big bathrooms, and we enjoyed the large lanai!
It’s hard to beat a beachfront view! Easy access to restaurants and shopping, when those are necessary, but even better are the opportunities in the surrounding area, from Kona coffee tours to snorkeling with manta rays to exploring the history of the kings of Hawai’i, the place where Captain Cook landed and was killed, and the missionaries built the first church in Hawai’i (it’s still there and in use). So many things to see and do! And the owners here provide all the necessities to do those things and more. Plus, simple things like salt and pepper and other condiments that so many places don’t have are provided by the hosts here. We were impressed, and we are frequent visitors to Hawai’i, so have seen the whole range of places.
Nice corner condo next to the park and beautiful ocean view. What a perfect Lanai to sit, do yoga, stretch your legs, sip on your morning coffee, & evening cocktail with dinner! Your view from Lanai, i like to split into 3 parts: to the left is Ali'i drive, to its right is a beautiful park and to its right is your ocean with blue water!
We truly enjoyed our stay!
Kitchen had plenty of pots and pans needed to cook your favorite meal!
The management team is excellent!
Aaryan & Dave
Direct oceanfront, incredible views. We love watching the fish and occasionally a sea turtle from our lanai. Clean and well-air-conditioned interior. Well supplied kitchen and the coffee and treats are a nice touch. Great location just far enough from historic city center to be quiet but close enough to walk. Our favorite in Kona!
First floor unit. The view was fantastic! Unit was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed. Anneliese was great to work with.
We have visited Hawaii over 50 times, but this is the first time we have actually stayed so close to Kailua. We were very happy with this condo as it had everything we needed including a well stocked kitchen, strong air conditioning, beautiful ocean front view, beach equipment, beach next door that took only 3 minutes to walk to, everything in good working order, clear instructions given for tv remote, dishwasher, etc. We really appreciated how Ailin responded very quickly to any email I sent to her. I could tell she really cared. We would love to rent from Ailin/same condo again.
The view is beyond incredible. Close location, able to walk into town. Room provided is with the appropriate necessities and was clean. Will be back!
Our family had the most incredible time at this condo. The view was absolutely beautiful and we watched the spectacular sunset every night from our lanai. The condo was very clean and well stocked with everything we needed including extra towels, beach chairs, cooler, etc. The location was perfect to walk to restaurants, shops, and the local farmer’s market. This was definitely the perfect place to stay and we will certainly be back in the future.
Great stay at this condo, amazing views, warm pool, near Kona village. Would definitely return.
We loved staying at Kona Reef!! Great location!! The views cannot be beat!! The kitchen was well stocked, organized and clean. The entire condo was clean. We would stay here again!!!
Location of the property was superb from the clear unobstructed view of the ocean with sea turtles and yellow fish you can see through the clear water to walking distance to excellent restaurants in Downtown Kona. Overall a fantastic visit.
What a nice place!
This property offers the advantages of location, view, functionality, cleanliness, amenities, and value.
Fantastic lanai ocean view- this condo is well kitted out the ac on both lounge & bedroom are a must in July .
Beautiful sunsets and conch blowing every night .
Easy to walk to town .
Appreciated the extra pantry items , but it needed an electric kettle .
Check in was super easy .wish we had stay longer

The property was just as advertised. Great location. Next to the ocean and shops. They had a binder of what was on the property and places to explore around the island. Very comfortable for a family of four. Would stay there again!
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay in A6 of the Kona Reef Resort. It was exactly how the pictures showed. There were games to play, beach accessories to use, and it was very clean. Great location as well. Thanks for a great trip for our first time to Kona.
Extremely friendly owner who communicated well throughout that process. Condo had everything my 13 year old son and I needed. View is even better than the pix. Literally a few feet from the ocean. Highly recommend!
Nice location and views. Definitely come again ❤️🌺
Incredible views of the beach and sunset from the balcony. We even saw sea turtles! Great views of the beach from all windows. The beach is super easy to access. Entering the water is rocky, but it has excellent snorkeling. A must do! Nice shops and food are a short 10 minute walk. We will definitely return!
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!
Condo was very clean. Great location.
The property is directly on the beach and is perfectly located within a less than 5 minute walk to Kona Town. 5 stars.
This unit and its wonders were fabulous. Very clean and had all the things we needed to have a very comfortable stay. Full kitchen, linens including plenty of beach towels, and a number of extra things we needed. Cindy and Rob responded promptly when there was a small snafu with the stove top and got it fixed before we even needed to use it again. We absolutely love this location as it is in walking distance to down town and not too close as to feel too surrounded by noise and activity. We will definitely be back! Mahalo!
This place is adorable, very clean and well stocked with all essentials. We were super happy with it. Deb was very attentive upon checking in then just let us enjoy. I’m at as cute and clean as it looks, we would definitely recommend .
Great location, great views of the ocean from all rooms and the pool, very close to a small beach and downtown, property is a little dated but still very nice for the price and great for families!
James and Nancy are the best hosts we have ever had in our many stays on the Big Island. The unit is beautiful! Sitting on the lanai at sunset is spectacular! James checked on us, gave us tons of tips and was very thoughtful and caring. Everything you needed was right there! The location on the top corner provides incredible ocean views! We highly recommend ❤❤❤
We just returned from our stay at Kona Reef. The condo is perfect for 2 people. The view is absolutely amazing. It was easy to walk to restaurants and very close drive to get groceries, etc. The condo had everything we needed for our 8 nights in Kona.
Great location! Enjoyed our stay. The room was great and we appreciated the chairs, ice chest, towels, and snorkel gear.
Our stay at the unit was fantastic! The morning view with the waves crashing just outside was amazing and the view of the sunsets was outstanding! Our teenage kids were close to the beach and shops in walking distance. The unit had all the amenities we needed, and we would recommend this complex and this unit to our friends and family.
Great property, great location. Very morning was beautiful and wonderful sounds of the ocean. Kids could play in front of the condo or at the beach next to it and we could still see them. It was perfect. We would definitely stay here again.
This condo was perfect for our vacation. The location was convenient to restaurants and shops. The view from the lanai was beautiful. We will definitely be staying here again!
When we arrived at this condo we found it stocked with all the necessities (soap, laundry detergent, coffee filters, ziploc bags, etc). Location is very close to restaurants and shopping, didn’t have to drive to eat/shop. The view was absolutely beautiful from the balcony! We hope to return someday!
Marni’s place is wonderful.
She was easy to communicate with. The condo is in a great location right on the beach and at the south end of the historic village. The lodging was clean, comfortable and attractive. Everything there you need: dishes, cups and glasses, kitchen ware, large coffee pot, large fridge, towels, comfortable bed, nice furniture, nice TV. Wifi was excellent. Comfortable lanai perfect for morning coffee or winding down at night. Fins, snorkels, ice chest, beach towels. She has thought of everything. Perfect headquarters to explore and enjoy the Big Island.
Next time we come, we will stay here.
Property was just as advertised, well kept, had everything we needed. Will definitely stay again.
Only problem was there was a strong old smell I think coming from the washing machine mold smell not old
The condo needs updated. The carpet is old and faded. The showers were not cleaned well. Lots of soap scum left on glass doors. The AC unit in the master bedroom does not work properly. We never were able to make it comfortable in there.
Otherwise, Great location. Lots of parking. Spacious and we had everything we needed.
Upon checking we were surprised at how old and dingy the property was. The pictures were obviously taken many years earlier. The floors were filthy as evidenced by my white socks becoming black within five minutes. Upon opening the front door a very old and dirty smell was evident. Airing out the unit did help somewhat. The shower curtain in the second bathroom was filthy on the bottom and the baseboards had not been cleaned for some time. The furnishings, both inside and out, were dated and stained. In short, Barbara and I were very disappointed in the property.
Beautiful place with a beautiful view. The location was, perfect and only a five minute walk into town. The place was fully stocked with everything you needed.

This is a true ocean view property within easy walking distance of the restaurants and shops of Alii Drive. Good size 2 bedroom apartment with a kitchen that had almost everything one can need (except a baking sheet and pizza cutter) It is a bit warm in the bedrooms during the summer, when the nighttime temperature/humidity did not drop low enough for window opening, as there is only air-conditioning in the main room, but made do with the fans provided. Used the pool on property and walked to the tiny beach next door (would recommend water shoes to anyone who would want to go into the ocean there)and walked to restaurants for dinner. Check in/out very easy and ample available parking on site. Kona is in a good location for exploring the big island and we enjoyed driving to some beautiful beaches within 30 minutes as well.
Conveniently located with a good view. The mattress is very outdated and needs replacing. Communication with owner was non existent but also not required or necessary, just unusual from other previous VRBO stays.
Best location in Kona. The view from the lanai is outstanding. Unit was as described with all the amenities needed. We would definitely stay there again.
We were thoroughly impressed by how well stocked the condo was in the kitchen, bathroom, and beach supplies like boogie boards folding chairs, and a cooler. The view was absolutely gorgeous, peaceful, and quiet. The pool area had lounge chairs on the grass facing the ocean which made a perfect spot to watch the sunset. The A/C cooled down the entire condo even though it was located in the living room only. The wifi was a little slow and I didn't have great cell connection, but overall that didn't disrupt our stay at all. We would absolutely stay here again and plan to in the future!
Hosts were wonderful and so easy to reach. Place is exactly as listed, view so beautiful! Will definitely go back and stay at this condo. Neighbors are so nice. The host’s excellent rating is well deserved!
You are paying for the location and the view. The rest is equivalent to a two or three star hotel. My opinion is the bare minimum is done to keep things going to maximize profit.The mini split ac is a bit of a joke. It is hard to feel any air flow at the required 72 limit. The fans help it not to feel stuffy. The lanai is awesome the rest not so much.
