UPSCALE SEASIDE STUDIO @ DOWNSIZED PRICE! FROM $575 WEEKLY!

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

170 feet from shoreline.....And some of the *only* shoreline that features a beach, tide pools and ocean side lawns complete with loungers!

On-island owners' personal seaside getaway with ocean views from the sofa, bed and balcony.

Beautifully maintained --Complete renovation in late 2012. (Light refurbishing quarterly--owner inspected monthly)

Stylishly appointed, this 4 room studio suite (478sq.ft.) was designed with comfort foremost in mind. Commodious seating, luxurious new bedding, a quality Cal-King mattress and high end bath linens are just a few of the “upscale” amenities. The cool blue and stone colored walls compliment the contemporary furnishings, clean lines, hardwoods, bamboo flooring and oriental carpets. Waves play in the floor to ceiling beveled mirror wall panel. The Asian art found throughout the apartment (museum puttied in place to prevent accidents) lends an exotic air to the décor.

The same care to detail is shown throughout the rest of the suite.

Soothing to the senses and stocked with everything needed for an evening of fine dining “ensuite” to a beach picnic, this apartment may well be the “Best Bang for the Buck” accommodation on the Kona coast.

*For those of you celebrating a special occasion: Rest assured that we go the extra mile to insure that it is, indeed, a *very special* occasion. Dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts and a NICE chilled Chardonnay will be waiting for you to enjoy. Live plants, fresh flowers, fruit or other treats will be placed in your suite on the day of your arrival.

Location:

 'The Kona Bali Kai'.  Midway down Ali'i Drive is famous surf spot 'Banyans'  (your view, as pictured in the slide show), adjacent to the Kona Bali Kai main building. (2 miles north to 'Restaurant Row' and the Village, 3 miles south to Keahou Bay and less than a mile to “Magic Sands” beach.) Across and just south from the main building, 12 unit 'Building 3' is easily accessed and has a 'laid back' feeling not usually associated with condos.  The unit is on the slightly elevated (10 ft. above sea level) first floor (easy access and good views of the ocean over 2 lane Ali'i Drive), with private residences on the north and east, a 'Mom and Pop' style market (w/ spirits) on the south and the Pacific Ocean to your west.

As it was supposed to be Rebecca was there to welcome us with her Aloha gift -Flowers,wine and maccadam, all was perfect,this condo is clean very well furnished and the decoration has been done with great care,the kitchen is well organized nothing is missing,the same for the bath room,and we have appreciate a lot of having beach towells,beach chairs and the small cooler always with us for snacks and beverages.

It is very well located,the parking is just by the side of the building and the others services as pool, BBQ. laundry are easy acces.

And there is the small Banyan beach across the street which we can watch the surfers performing their favorite sport from our lanai in Hawaii.

We wish to return again.

For us that place is 5 stars in this category.

Great value! Comfy bed!

  • 4 of 5
The condo well equipped and included a very comfortable bed. We enjoyed using the beach equipment (chair, boogie boards, towels, etc.). We watched the sunset from beach across the street and it was beautiful. The location is close to restaurants (a mile plus for most, if you like walking) and beaches. It is well priced (great value!) for the amenities offered - Rebecca let us check out late (awesome for an evening flight!) and provided chocolates/wine(yum!).

This is a rental/residential community. We were surprised when we arrived that people were smoking on the stairs outside the condo. We could not hear them inside or smell the smoke but this caught me a bit off guard so just something to be aware of - obviously, this is outside of the owner's control.

Owner's Response: Thank you so much for taking the time to write a review. So sorry! I do want to clear up the smoking on the stairs situation: NOT ALLOWED--Security should have caught this and have been notified to watch for this situation. It is Hawaii State Law that smokers must leave at least 20 feet between themselves and any public building. It is up to each individual owner whether smoking is allowed or not on the private lanais. Again, my apologies for this uncommon situation. Please return anytime. You are always welcome.

Fantastic place, across the street from personal beach

  • 5 of 5
This was an excellent place. It was very clean and very well decorated inside. Large and comfortable bed. From the lanai you can see the ocean and a small beach, which is just across the street. Parking was very easy and is right outside the condo. Rebecca, owner, was very helpful and quick at answering my email questions. Nothing but good things to say.

STILL EXCELLENT!!!

  • 5 of 5
This was our 2nd stay with Rebecca and we found everything to be in top notch condition. Our first stay had been right after the renovation and we were curious (and maybe a bit concerned) as to how the unit had held up over the last 3 years. Well, no worries. Picture perfect! Still very attractive and oh so CLEAN & COMFORTABLE ( I want that Bed!!). There were new bed and bath linens, the full kitchen was well stocked (even condiments!) and the new beach chairs are super comfortable. Boogie boards, coolers--everything needed for a beach day is provided. Wine, dark chocolates, fresh flowers--Rebecca does it right! We heartily recommend this condo. 5 STAR VALUE.

Great little Condo

  • 4 of 5
The Kona Bali Kai complex is an older resort. This is not a five star property but had everything we needed to make our stay comfortable. Dealing with Rebecca was easy and she was most responsive to our requests. After booking our stay we realized that our flight did not leave until 11pm and requested a late check out from her. She did us one better by offering us an extra day for a nominal fee. Also once in the unit we informed her that the vacuum was overheating and within 24 hours we had a new vacuum. This unit, though Older is well maintained and equipped. Both the bed and pillows were very comfortable, as was the actual bedding. The love seat was really comfortable too.
It is directly across the street from the beach where all the locals gather to surf and boogie board, in fact we saw two competitions during our stay. We found it very interesting to see the families out together enjoying the ocean. Like most beaches in the area it is lava covered, interesting, and filled with a microcosm of living sea life. Spinner dolphins and humpbacks were visible daily. (February) The unit is ground floor up about five steps, the lanai is actually about four feet above ground. You have a decent view of the banyan tree and beach and we enjoyed sitting outside daily. If there is one small drawback for us it would be that the lanai itself was quite small and not really comfortable to eat on. Saying that we usually barbq'd across at the main complex and were able to eat at the picnic tables. The sunsets were fabulous. We found the pool area in the main complex clean and quiet.
It is a fairly long walk to town however the shuttle runs every two hours and for $2 you can use it. We stayed three weeks but actually only rented a car for one week and had no trouble getting groceries.
Local tip: eat lunches out and dinners in. We found menu items to be very similar for both meals but much cheaper at lunch time. Purchase your fresh fruit and veg at the local markets.
The big island is one of our favourite places and this was our first time in this area and we are hoping were are able to return sometime.
Rebecca, Thanks for the wine and chocolates we enjoyed the wine on Valentines dinner on the beach.
Would we recommend this unit to our family or friends, or us, yes we would.
