We recently had a wonderful stay at Kona Reef condo unit D-18. It's a corner beach-front unit with a spectacular view from the lanai. We spent many mornings and afternoons watching the waves and surfers from the lanai. It was very clean and well kept. It is in a great location, located about 5-10 walk away from the many downtown...

This Kona Reef corner unit is a winner! We found it very well supplied and enjoyed using the snorkel equipment, beach chairs, coolers etc. that were also provided in the unit. The lanai is large and the view is fantastic!! It is a most comfortable 2 bdrm/2 bath unit. The manager was great to work with, and we would certainly... More

We traded our timeshare to stay here. Comfortable, great kitchen for cooking and nice lanai. We have view of the ocean, the pool and cooking area. The bbq's get a lot of use, we preferred to go out. Well stocked with pans and other cooking needs. The washer/dryer is a plus. Nicely decorated in a tropical theme and not overdone.... More

There weren't many reviews on this unit so here are my 2 cents. The view was lovely, looking right at the beach park which we found to be enjoyable aside from some neon orange construction cones thrown all around the beach for no apparent reason. The unit was NOT clean. The first day I had a lot of anxiety about... More

We stayed here for 7 days and greatly enjoyed it. Our room on the third floor looked directly onto the ocean. We liked hearing the waves rolling onto the lava rocks. Our room was clean, comfortable, and well-equipped. The staff was friendly, helpful, and responsive. The pool is small but nice for cooling off. There are several barbecue grilles in... More

Had one BR facing park and shore on south side of complex. sort of average beach house type furnishings. They say take off shoes inside, but the floor was filthy. Hadn't been properly cleaned for some time. The pool also was pretty disgusting, with a standing layer of bubble scum along one side. That said, great grills in common area,... More

Rented Unit F5 and it had some very nice features and also had some things that could use some attention. The king size bed was really comfortable. Everything worked in the unit and it was clean. It had a nice large lanai that looked over the pool and the roaring waves against the shore beyond. There were sightings of whales... More

We just returned from 6 amazing nights at this condo. It was our first stay and when we return, we truly hope that this unit is available. The best ocean views that we encountered were from our balcony. This was as close to ocean fron as you can get. I actually sent a video of the waves to our cold... More

Our stay in condo D6 was wonderful! The owner, Candice, has decorated the unit very nicely and it is equipped with everything you could need. The ground floor level was wonderful making mornings on the lanai magical while we watched the dolphins and whales frolic right in front of us! We had sightings every single day, often for long periods.... More
