Just one of the wonderful experiences you came to Hawaii for.... an outstanding oceanfront condo to make your stay complete. Our one bedroom unit is on the second floor of the D building of the Wonderful Kona Reef Resort, really only six steps!. From the time you enter our condo you will be drawn to the ocean view in front of you. Our unit is fully appointed and air conditioned to ensure your stay is completely comfortable, from the swivel chairs on the lanai for watching the turtles or surfers play, to the extra comfortable pillow top king size bed. This condo offers the best in relaxation of the resort complex. You have the best view from your own private lanai of the ocean and shoreline, where you are not too high to not enjoy the action of the waves crashing on the rocks, but high enough to have your own privacy. Once you open the sliding glass doors to the ocean, you may never close them again until you leave, as the sound of the ocean is so wonderful and is so peaceful, it will lull to sleep every night.
In the condo you will find all the needed items for a full relaxing stay. There is a comfortable full cushioned sofa that folds out to a queen size bed, a wonderful club chair for watching the view or reading. There is Air Conditioning in the condo for those rare extra hot days along with ceiling fans to keep the air moving, if the ocean breeze is not enough. There is one ceiling fan in the living room, one in the bedroom and one more on the Lanai. The condo has free password protected wireless internet access in the unit for web surfing, checking your email if you wish, or working if you have to (call the condo the “far west coast office”). The free phone service includes access to long distance to all of the US and Canada. For those that can pull their eyes from the ocean there is a new 42” plasma TV in the living room with Cable access and a VCR/DVD player attached and in the bedroom there is another new 26” LED flat screen with Cable access.
The Kona Reef Resort is an outstanding resort property with a great location, from the incredible oceanfront location to the sand beach next door, Honl Beach. The resort has a wonderful pool and a large whirlpool spa. The Pool area also has tables with chairs and chase lounges for sunbathing and a Cabana party area with 4 large stainless steel gas BBQ’s for the guests to use. The BBQ area is a great place to meet other guests and share about the great experiences of each other’s adventures of the day. Parking is free and you can use the underground garage to keep your car cooler.
Our condo is an easy short walk to the shops, art galleries, restaurants and bars of the Kona Village area, which makes it easy as you don’t have to drive your car (and pay for parking) or walk back up the hill on Alii drive (be sure to take the lower back road to avoid the hill!). You may even find yourself not using your car for days as the Condo and area keeps you there and relaxed. On thing for sure, you will have a wonderful time and want to come back again and again.

We stayed at Kona Reef D14 for a week and enjoyed every minute of it. The rental management services were great and very informative. No issues with payments or check in. The condo is great for a couple or a family with small children who can sleep on a sofa bed. The king bed in the bedroom was very comfortable. (we have a tempur-pedic at home and still no complaints!) We loved sitting on the patio, enjoying the ocean waves and breeze. It as very private. Being on the second floor, you don't have people walking by or looking into your condo. Ac worked fine, but was rarely needed due to the breeze through the patio screen doors. The best part of this condo for us was being walking distance to the strip of restaurants and shops in town, but being far enough away for peace and quiet. We really enjoyed exploring the town and eating at the great open air, ocean front restaurants. There is a small beach next to the condo that looked nice. We didn't go there much as most of our time was spend diving (with Kona Diving Company who was awesome!). We had a fabulous time in Kona and will be back very soon!! This is our new favorite Hawaiian location.

The condo was so nice! The neighborhood was awesome! We enjoyed sitting on the lanai every evening and watching the sun set. The condo had absolutely everything we needed to prepare our own meals. We used the grill by the pool almost every day. Staff was super nice! We would definitely utilize this condo again.

We really enjoyed our stay in Kona and this condo unit. It was on the ocean, with everything we needed. The unit even had boogie boards and snorkel gear, and barbeques in the pool area so we could enjoy home-made fresh fish every night. We could walk to the main strip or drive a short distance to great beaches.

The ocean is just a few steps from the lanai of this condo and it is wonderful to listen to the surf and watch turtles, whales and dophins just in front of my window. The bed and furniture is new and very comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped with everything we needed. The pool and grounds were wonderful, clean and very secure. We really enjoyed the location which was just a block walk to many restaurants and shops. We always found plenty of parking spots near our condo and the area was well lit at night. However, there is no way to avoid the six steps up to the condo so folks with disabilites may find this unworkable. We would come here again.
"Great clean condo with fantastic view of the ocean and sunsets."
Left on 02/26/2014 for a stay in February 2014 | Ted and LilaReviewed Feb 26, 2014Stayed Feb 2014
Excellent clean condo with all the enemities we needed for our stay. We cooked out on the grill by the pool a lot which was very clean, and had all the tools and dishes we needed.
The view was excellent as we watched whales and dolphins play in the ocean and the sunsets were fantastic.
Everything we needed to do (restraunts, shopping ect.) were all within walking distance .
Would definitely return to stay in the same condo.

We really enjoyed our stay in this unit. The owners had made it quite comfortable and clean. The appliances all functioned quite well and the owners also provided boogie boards, snorkel gear, and beach mats. We were very pleased and would recommend this to others without reservation.
"Kona Reef D14: an excellent abode for exploring the Big Island"
Left on 11/29/2013 for a stay in November 2013 | A FlipKey verified reviewerReviewed Nov 29, 2013Stayed Nov 2013
Having stayed before in this condo we had our expectations and they were met fully. The easy key-pad entrance was an improvement over last time we visited D14.
Having dinner in restaurants at walking distance (even the Kona Brewery is about 20 mins. walk away)and then lulled into sleep by the surf and not being disturbed by traffic or other big town noises makes D14 a place to look forward to return to.
The outside maintenance that took place during daylight hours during our stay was only a slight hiccup easily overlooked. After all maintenance has to occur sometime.
Aloha and thank you for posting your review of Kona Reef D14. I'm sorry that you experienced difficultly with the checkin/checkout proceedure but I'm sure how to respond without knowing the full details of what you experienced. I understand that the current proceedure of checking in at the management office for the unit key is not ideal, but please know that in the near future, guests will be able to proceed directly to the unit to checkin as the owner is upgrading the lock to a keyless entry. We are glad that you enjoyed the condo and hope that you had a wonderful vacation.
"We always enjoy the ocean front view"

D14 is a nice unit and updated. But, there still remains some work to be done. The tub spigot was a little loose, carpet needed cleaning and it was un-nerving to have the disposal so open when using. We have stayed at Kona Reef ocean front condos and they all are worth the value. Check in was a little complicated by having to obtain the unit key at Sunquest Realty several miles away.
"A wonderful place to people watch from the lanai."
Left on 11/11/2011 for a stay in October 2011 | Jane MillerReviewed Nov 11, 2011Stayed Oct 2011
Location was great. Shops and restaurants within walking distance. Condo was very clean and had all the amenities needed for wonderful stay. It was great to wake up to the roar of the ocean and enjoy the first cup of coffee on the lanai. The thing I liked most was the incredible view.

Kona Reef is a lovely location; it's an easy walk to town, and it's off the road enough so that traffic noise isn't an issue. The condos are comfortable, though one needs to pack lightly since the closets are very small. No problem there, since the unit has a washer and dryer.
Sun Quest is a great manager--any questions or problems are dealt with immediately. I'm a repeat customer because I'm a happy one.

This condo was comfortable and an excellent location with a view from the balcony of continuous entertainment from the surfers and boogie boarders. Walking into Kona was pleasant and easy access to shopping and restaurants. Excellent snorkeling and beaches were between 5 and 45min away. The pool and hot tub are oceanfront. This was our second time at the Kona Reef and plan on returning for a longer stay.
