We had another great stay. The new furniture and mattress were a wonderful addition. The unit is always well equipped and comfortable. We love taking long walks along the ocean path and the sounds of the waves crashing at night. The best recommendation we can give is that we've made our plans to return there in 2016 and 2017.
We had a wonderful stay at this awesome home. The weather was great and we found lots to do and see. The location of this rental is nicely situated between Hilo and Pahoa, and we loved being oceanfront. The home had everything we needed, and we appreciated all of the background information provided by the owners. We recommend checking out the Kaumana Cave, hiking the Kilauea Iki Trail, sightseeing with Blue Hawaiian Helicopters and of course, just hanging out at the house enjoying the view. We would definitely stay at this rental again!
My husband and I took my elderly mother to Kona and stayed at the Kona Bali Kai. We had never rented anything from the internet before and were very nervous about it. I felt much better after emailing Gayle and felt even better after talking to her. She was very helpful and personable. The condo was exactly as she had described it. There was an elevator for mom to get to the second floor and the pool and hot tub were very clean. The view from the lanai was exactly the same as the picture on the web site. We were so very pleased. It was clean and had everything we needed... Things that I never assumed would be in the condo for us to use. There were even snorkels and fins. And the very best thing was that there really were turtles in the tide pools right under our lanai. Just like we were told. And they were there every day of our 2 week stay. There were also tropical fish and eels in the tide pools. You never knew what you would see. It was great. We spent many evenings after our busy days watching the gorgeous sunsets. The washer and dryer in the suite were a real bonus, saving trips to a coin laundry. Gayle also provided us with some of her favorite things to do on the island. Her hints were really helpful and we did a lot of what she suggested. The snorkelling was amazing, the people were terrific, the deep sea fishing netted us a couple of suppers and the scenery was so totally incredible. It was a trip of a life time. In fact we actually stayed an extra week after my mom went home. We stayed in a few other places during our extra week but nothing was as great as Kona Bali Kai. Would we come back and stay at Gayle's condo? Already working on that!!!
