About This Listing
Kona's best & most requested location. It is only one of two resort condos at a white sand beach in Kona. The Kona Reef Condo Resort is the perfect location for your Hawaiian vacation. Your lanai will be less than 70 feet from the waves. Enjoy!
You are so close to the waves you’ll feel the ocean spray when surf’s up!
You will relax with the spectacular Ocean and sunset views from kitchen, living room and lanai. You will have open bedroom with King size bed, one bath condo apartment. The full kitchen is fully equipped.
Play on the white sand beach next to the condo. Relax in the ocean-side pool and spa. Snorkel, surf or watch the turtles, whales and dolphins from the lanai. Stroll thru the Royal Kona Resort, two blocks to 10 of Kona’s best restaurants and nightclubs (some mediocre ones too). Just three more blocks to the farmers market, Royal Palace, more restaurants and quaint (sometimes tacky) tourist shops of Kailua-Kona Village.
You will enjoy this deluxe unit in paradise: Third floor privacy, Elevators, Air conditioning for when the ocean breeze isn’t enough to keep you cool, A parking garage to keep car cool too. Quiet-all concrete building, KING SIZE super BED, Washer/dryer in unit, Two TV’s, DVD, VCR ,CD/cassette stereo system, Full kitchen with corian counter tops, large refrigerator, convection, smooth top range,dishwasher, microwave, full-size range, coffee maker, rice cooker, blender, everything you won't need to cook, since you will be eating in the multitude of nearby restaurants, Boogie Boards beach chairs, mats beach towels and cooler for enjoying the beach. Free telephone calls to anywhere on the Big Island(sure beats hotel charges) and free highspeed WiFi too! (Gee, I sound like a real estate agent.)
We also own a coffee farm and long-term rental houses in Kona. We have our own people to take care of problems like locking your keys in the condo after office hours or if something breaks in the unit (but please don't break things) The most common problem guests have is that they do not want to leave.
Guests are welcome to visit our private KonaZona Coffee Farm Art Gardens and Tiki Bar. It’s 4 miles from the condo in the artist colony of Holualoa. Our farm is easy to find on the internet. Come up to the farm and get all-you-can-pick and eat papayas, bananas, mangos, oranges, limes, pineapples, grapefruit and Mac nuts or tropical flowers. Whatever is in season, is yours. If the friendly natives are home, visit us in our backyard Tiki bar and talk story.
Our farm tenants include a Captain, the Divemaster and the Snuba operator on the Fairwind boats, Hawaii’s highest rated snorkel, manta and whale watch cruises. They will give you a 30% discount. Wow! Another tenant owns the best charter fishing boat in Kona, the Intrepid. He’ll give you a discount too!

Please don't feed the birds that visit the lanai , (they poop) Don't squish the geckos. The geckos are our friends.
Communication was great with Kona Dave. He was able to answer the few questions we had. The condo was as described. Ocean view is an (email hidden)is place is right on the water. It was awesome falling asleep to the sound of the waves. The neighborhood is great. You are in the heart of the action on Alii Drive; no need to drive to shop or eat! The grounds were great and the staff friendly. Park in the under roof lot to keep the vehicle cool throughout the day. We will definitely stay with Kona Dave again.
What a great location! Condo is right on the water, 3rd floor of a 4 floor building. Very well appointed with all our wants met. Host very prompt to respond to questions while we were on island.
While I didn't actually get the chance to stay at this property due to an access issue with the door key, KonaDave seems like a nice guy and the condo's location on the waterfront and near the town centers seems ideal.
The condo building appears to be mostly vacation rentals, complete with festive vibe. For those who don't like resorts or hotels (and who don't want to rent a whole house), this is probably a great option.
I wish I could say more, but we were unable to check-in for more time than we had to spare, so we decided on alternate accommodation. KonaDave gave us a full refund for the mix up, which is greatly appreciated.
Dave has a very nice Condo right in town. The sound of the waves is lovely and the location's convenience is great. There are chairs and snorkel gear as well as some very basic housewares. While the apartment is pretty small, we didn't need much and Dave was as nice as could be. The night we got in it was unseasonably warm and humid. That night we used the air conditioning and it worked fine. It cooled off the day after and we found we did not need it for the remainder of our stay. The place was clean and met our needs.
The condo was nice, clean and in a great location....right by the ocean, overlooking the pool area, next to a nice small beach, and easy walking distance to shopping and restaurants. We really enjoyed our stay there. Did not get to meet Dave in person, but our experience in his condo was wonderful.

He grew up (friends say he never grew up) in Seattle and graduated from the University of Washington before a career in the newspaper business. He worked for a Washington Post company and the San Francisco Chronicle.
