About Gayle and Bill Smith (owners)

We have been married 40+ years and have loved Kona since we first traveled there in the 70's. We love lava rock, huge waves, watching surfers, and being close to the ocean. This building was as close as one could get! We'd love to share our place with you. For those wanting a month in Southern California, San Diego County, check out our VRBO 375793 in Oceanside.

Gayle and Bill Smith (owners) purchased this condo in 1988

Why Gayle and Bill Smith (owners) chose Kailua Kona

This building was built in the 70's before anyone worried about building so close to the ocean waves. Consequently, you feel like you are almost in the water. The master bedroom is oceanfront, and the waves lull you to sleep at night. The lanai is HUGE, 200 sq. ft. across, offering panoramic views. I rented here before purchasing and fell in love! You will too.

What makes this condo unique

Proximity to ocean, sea turtles who live right below us, on property and are there 24/7 year round. Amazing sunsets year round, and wonderful tide pools out back at low tide.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Oh my gosh this condo is beautiful. My hubby and I have stayed at the Hilton and the 4 Seasons - they can not hold a candle to Gayle's Condo.. We have stayed there I think 5 times maybe more and it is the only place we will stay. It's like coming home everytime we stay there we bring our clothes and a little food and everything else is there. I mean EVERYTHING-boogie boards snorkle masks beach towels-condiments, spices, it's like coming home.

> The whole front of the condo is sliding doors and windows so you can see the ocean from any room. I used to be the person who when she went on vacation would not cook, take me out; but now I want to stay here and bbq. There are nice bbq's with picinic tables right beside the tide pools you can watch the turtles come in at night. They are so funny they surf the waves in then swim back out and do it over again. During the day it's not unusual to see them sunning on the beach.

We usually go in March because we love to sit on the lanai and watch the whales go by. I spend every minute that I'm not on the beach on the lanai - there is a nice fan to cool you down and beautiful glass topped table and chairs it's great for a romantic sunset dinner.

> The unit is spotless and beautifully decorated. You can tell the owners really care about it and take excellent care of it. Even our rental car has a beautiful parking spot facing out on the ocean. (that was input from hubby). Also there is an elevator which is great since my husband has a bad leg and back.

> The pictures are great but it's so much more in person the colors and the smells of the ocean and flowers, I love to lay in bed at night and listen to the ocean and in the morning the birds sing you awake as the sun rises. Oh and when the sun hits waves just right - about 7-8am you can actually see the fish swimming in the wave the water is so clear.

>

> I'm counting the days untill I get to go back next March. I would highly recommend this condo to anyone looking for a relaxing-carefree totally furnished just move in vacation rental."

A trip of a lifetime and we enjoyed every minute

  • 5 of 5
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!!!

We very much enjoyed our stay--how can one complain about sea turtles, sunsets and rainbows. The condo is conveniently located to anything one would like to do and to literally be 20 feet from the ocean is incredible.

Incredible Stay!

  • 5 of 5
From the moment we walked in, we knew we had made a great decision when we chose one of gayle's condos. Checking in was fast and easy, parking in the garage out of the sun was perfect, and the unit itself met our every need.
The Waves, Waves, Waves were so close and just stunning; I cannot say enough about the feeling of being at one with nature, being so close to the ocean. Best parts of this vacation were the morning coffee on the lanai watching the turtles below, and the frolicking spinner dolphins out in front of us, to the amazing sunsets in the evening.
We found this 4th floor unit very clean, nicely furnished with a tasteful Hawaiian flair, equipped with everything needed to enjoy our stay. As to cooling, we left the lanai doors open to the ocean, and the breezes as well as ceiling fans were more than adequate to make us comfortably cool.
We could not have chosen better and we are looking forward to a return visit next year. After this experience you return home rested and renewed.

Kona Bali Kai - Location, Location, Location!!!

  • 5 of 5
This is a great vacation spot! The condominium complex is well-maintained, bbq's cleaned every morning, great pool/hottub, convenient parking (even the car has a white water view!) and very friendly staff. If you are into bbqing, this is the world's best place, just steps away from the condo next to a tidepool where the turtles hang out. The views of the sunset and the waves crashing on the rocks add even more to the experience. The location is fabulous with some of the world's best snorkeling just a short drive away along Ali'i Drive. Central Kailua is just a ways in the other direction with all the amenities and oceanside dining. Closeby are farmer's markets with fresh fruits and fun souvenirs. The condo itself has everything you need and is nicely decorated and very comfortable. We absolutely loved the lanai! Gayle was a joy to work with! It was fun chatting with her and getting to know her via e-mail. She had everything set up perfectly for our arrival with great vacation tips, maps, and books to help us find our next adventure during our stay. We would definitely stay here again! This was the best, most relaxing vaction we have had in a long time!

Great vacation!

  • 5 of 5
This was our first time to the Big island. The description for the condo was very accurate. The location is amazing. The ocean less than 40ft. in front of you when your standing at the lanai railing. Everything was very clean, and worked properly. The complex is also located in a great area. Just a couple minute drive north to the down town/shopping area, and less than a one minute drive south to beautiful magic sands beach. The complex pool area was also very nice and well maintained, and the on site surf shop came in very handy for renting body boards and grabbing more sunscreen. There is also a small restaurant in the front of the building that has very good food. Gayle was very easy to work with, and everything went very smoothly. We would definitely recommend this condo to anyone and plan to stay again on our next trip to this incredible island.
