Pros: Great view, close to town, clean, good communication with the owners when we had a question. Cons: The unit backs up to the road so it was very noisy in the bedroom. We were there for garbage pickup morning also. The lights coming into the entrance are on all night and shine through the window. I would suggest black out curtains. Other than that it could use some upkeep and some redecorating. The view makes up for a lot and again the owners were very helpful.

we stay at the Kona Reef condo for 5 nights in July 2019: a couple + our adult son (19 years old). The condo was clean and as described in the web site. It is very near the Kona village, so you don't need the car to go there. We use the pool and the bbq site, all was perfectly maintain and never too crowd. We take our coffee on the lanai each morning and watch the surfer in front of the resort. The communication with Vance and Bethyl is perfect and quick at any time. I would recommend this place without hesitation. The only little problem we had is with the sofa-bed... co...

The condo was in a great location and nice, except for needing better AC (which the owners said is being replaced after our visit). Nice ocean views, great pool area, and a comfortable bed. Owners were very helpful and nice.

My boyfriend and I came for a much needed RR trip. This condo was fantastic! The entire condo was comfortable and the location was amazing. The owners were very quick to respond to any questions and also left a welcome pineapple that was delicious. A very quick walk to all the restaurants and bars. If flying in stop by the Costco, Walmart or Safeway for groceries on your way to the condo and do not forget to buy your own coffee/tea. Sitting outside in the morning and watching the surfers was so relaxing. If we come back to the big island we would stay here again. Mahalo!

F26 has a prime location in the only building that has complete elevator service. We enjoyed getting to know the Shepperson’s, the owners, as they resolved some issues with the unit. They were very responsive. Since the units are individually owned, each owner manages the renovation schedule of their unit. Some have been completely redone and some need more work. Our big complaint is with the Aloha booking site. We found them to be very difficult to deal and will avoid working with them in the future. The most ridiculous part of their contract makes it impossible to get a refund if you nee...

After 30 years of traveling to Kona this is one of the nicest condos we’ve stayed in. Great location, oceanfront amenities, full Oceanview, nicely furnished, big tv, comfortable bed, lots of fans, air conditioning, and ocean breeze. Super convenient coded lock.

We enjoyed our six days staying at this beautiful, convenient, and clean condo. Appreciate the beach chairs and umbrella. Walking distant to farmer market and restaurants.

This condo was perfect for our family vacation. The views of the ocean were unreal, and watching the sunset from the lanai was amazing (and the fan out there made it so pleasant even at the hottest time of day). The location right next to Honl’s beach was perfect, our son was thrilled to be able to walk right over to the beach anytime to play in the sand and waves. We even saw turtles there twice! And having the pool right on site was great for when we wanted water time away from the sand. The furniture and beds (including the sofa bed) were very comfortable, then kitchen was well appoi...

We enjoyed 3 great weeks on the Big Island and staying in Condo F-26 was the perfect location to be at. Close to downtown and the Farmers Market while off the main drag for peace and quiet. The unit was well maintained and has everything you need. Being on the end and at the top gave you plenty of light and a refreshing breeze so that air conditioning was not needed much. The grounds are well maintained and a great view of the bay and activities that go on throughout the day. We will be back in the future. Thanks Vance and Bethyl

This condo is absolutely amazing. The view was phenomenal a straight shot of the ocean close enough to feel the breeze coming in. It was stock with everything we needed down to snorkeling gear and towels for the beach. I would highly recommend it. How ever at the time of my stay there was some construction going on, but it was a terribly big deal.

A very nice condo fully stocked with toys and kitchen tools. Wonderful views from all of the rooms and lanai. Great cross breeze and excellent AC system. Very clean and organized. Owners were very attentive and relational. Excellent value! Kona Reef we feel is the absolute best location and we would definately stay at this condo again, if we're hadn't just bought one ourselves.

Thank you so much for the wonderful stay in your beach home! We had such a great time at the beach and the pool with our two little ones! Your view here is amazing from the lanai with the ocean and the sunset. We couldn’t have asked for a better view! We loved seeing all the boats and helicopters flying by. We particularly enjoyed easing on the lanai, swimming in the pool, and walking right out to the ocean for some wadding. We had a wonderful time here on our first big vacation with the kids! Thank you again! The owners were very welcoming, accommodating, and responsive. We would l...

Thank you for the stay in your condo. My friend and I came on this trip to allow to take a step back from working over 80 hours a week. Waking up to coffee on the balcony was exactly what I needed. I have been to the Big Island six times over the past 3 years and this stay was even better than the others! I hope to bring my family back for the Holidays to create some more amazing memories. Everything was perfect at our condo. Thanks again for everything.
