About Stephanie

We have been visiting Hawaii for over 43 years. Stephanie lived on the Big Island for several years during the 60s. We have owned and operated hospitality properties for 22 of those. We are responsive and responsible to our guests. We are very knowledgeable about what to do, where to eat, and out of the way places to hike, beach and explore.

Stephanie purchased this condo in 2003

Why Stephanie chose Kailua-Kona

Kona Reef Resort is THE oceanfront complex. It is just a short stroll to the downtown area. The oceanfront and adjacent beach offer many opportunities for sunbathing, swimming, snorkeling , surfing, visiting tide pools, spotting turtles and watching sunsets. From the lanai, you can spot dolphins, whales in season, cruise ships, paddlers and surfers. If that doesn't keep you busy, nearby Kona Village has many restaurants, shops a popular farmers' market, and art galleries.

Beautiful condo in a perfect location

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days in January 2018. The condo was clean and nicely decorated. Everything we needed was there. We were both sick on this trip so stayed in the condo more than we had anticipated and it was extremely comfortable. It is within walking distance to everything on Ali'i drive. The ocean crashing outside the doors is wonderful for sleeping. We plan to stay again as soon as we can.

Owner's Response: Hi Bev & Ron, Thank you for returning to our condo in Kona again. We love that you like it as much a we do. I agree, the location, setting, etc are perfect. Just sorry to hear that you both got ill on Oahu. Not a bad place to recuperate but I am sure you would have loved to go out and about more. It's great that you have your reservation for next year. Something nice to look forward to. Take care. Mahalo, Stephanie & Jack

Great location, amazing views!

  • 5 of 5

We stayed for 7 days at this wonderful condo. Easy check in check and out with Stephanie. Rooms were clean and well stocked. We very much enjoyed the lanai in the mornings the pool and small beach areas. What amazing sunsets and beautiful views. Often we saw turtles at waters edge and whales in the distance. There is nothing more relaxing than the sound of the water hitting the rocks just a stones throw from the deck!

Great property in a great location

  • 5 of 5

We spend two weeks here and had a great time. The location is fantastic as it is about 1,000 feet to town. The view is great (just like the picture) and the property is nice and quiet. The condo is well equipped and the bed was comfortable. The owner is very responsive (and nice). We would definitely stay here again.

Love the condo and the location

  • 4 of 5

We stayed during the period of Ironman 2017. Perfect location of the condo; Enough out of town to be quieter, yet you can walk to downtown and restaurants easily.

Condo was cleaned and well furnished, love LOVE the view on the ocean and the constant sound of the waves hitting the shore.

Only negative was that the internet was sketchy, on the verge of being unusable at times. We stayed in other condos before in the same building without issues and my parents were there during the same period and their internet was fast.

Other than that, this was an awesome stay!

Owner's Response: Hi Thierry, Thank you for writing a review of your stay in our condo. We were unaware that there was an internet problem. Many of our guests work remotely when in Kona. Therefore we have notified all guests to monitor their connection and speed so that we can remedy any problems that might occur. The WiFi is through Hawaii Tel and I just spoke with a couple of owners who said that that rebooting their modem seems to reset everthing. It's nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay in our condo and hope you will return again sometime. Mahalo, Stephanie
