We stayed here for 2 weeks for the Ironman Champs and it was a very good base. The condo was well appointed - everything you need to be comfortable including air con in the bedroom. The location is excellent being within walking distance of the main shops and restaurants. The pool area was spotlessly clean and with good communal BBQ's.... More

I found this condo on VRBO. The owner, Candace has the best condo in Kona. A beautiful oceanfront condo overlooking the blue pacific waters of Kona. A quiet unit with all you need for vacation in the sun. It is close to restaurants and shops along Alii drive. There is a side road to walk up to the mau tai... More

We stayed here for a week and really enjoyed it. The location is perfect being a 10 minutes walk to downtown Kona. The unit we had was in very good shape and had a great view of the ocean (unit D37). The kitchen ws better stocked than my own house. There are few beaches in Kona but there is a... More

Clean building, decent grounds, pretty quiet but can get warm. Beach out front is surfable. Pool is nice and lots of sunning area. Parking is usually fine. If you can get a spot go for it since it is a nice property and ran pretty well. You can walk to a lot of places so you could turn in your... More

We have stayed at the Kona reef multiple times a year for 3-4 weeks each year for about 12 years. During that time, lots of the condos have been remodeled and there are improvements to the public areas (pool, garden, etc) every year. However, this was built in the 1970s or 80s so the condos are smaller than more modern... More

Pro: Great location easy access to everything restaurants, shopping, even a small beach right next to the condos. Pool, jacuzzi, BBQ are very clean. Con: The "surprise!" $10.00/day Guess Utility fee, should be disclosed up front at booking. Beware there are cockroaches (in both units we stayed). Hit and miss units vary about standard depend on owners(bathrooms, kitchen...), the place... More

Check-in was easy. I verified check-in procedures in advance, because we arrived after office hours. There is a conveniently placed telephone directly outside the facility office, and you need only give your confirmation number to receive the lock-box combo. The condo was like a fully furnished apartment, and our unit had a patio that looked directly out to the pool... More

Great location with ocean view (room B34) and walking distance to lots of restaurants. Nice pool, with enough beds around it. The jacuzzi is a bit too hot, so nobody seems to use that. Pitty. Four BBQ's are free to use. Apartments are spacious though simple. Not completely fresh and clean (we've had 2 cockroaches visiting). Unfortunately the owners are... More
