UPSCALE SEASIDE STUDIO @ DOWNSIZED PRICE $599 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.

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.

Great stay In Kona

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Feb 2, 2014

We spent the month of Jan 2014 in Rebecca's studio. It was very nicely decorated, great bed, nice bamboo floors. We enjoyed spending time on the Lanai watching the surfer's gather across the street at Banyan beach. Rebecca was very responsive to our questions and handled the whole VRBO experience in a professional manner. We arrived late New Years Day and assuming all the stores would be closed I asked Rebecca if she could leave a 6 pack in the fridge. When we got there a cold six of Kona Longboard was waiting. As for the location, its just across the street from the Ocean as the pictures reflect. My only complaint was traffic noise early in the morning. But late at night the sound of the surf was intoxicating. As an FYI, there is no dishwasher and the washer/dryer is across the street near the pool area. But as it turns out this was hardly an issue for us. We swam and used the hot tub while the washer/dryer was working. And as it was only the 2 of us, we did not really need a dishwasher. We would definitely stay again.

WHAT A SWEET CONDO!

  • 5 of 5
  • Submitted: Jan 1, 2014
  • Stayed: Dec 2013
WOW, what can I say but this lovely condo was just great!

Beautifully decorated and extremely well appointed it had everything we needed and more, including the wonderful location and proximity to the beach and Kona town.

Oh, and did I mention the owner Rebecca...amazing! She was professional and always responded quickly to answer any questions I had prior to our arrival and during our stay. By far the best owner we have ever dealt with when renting a "Vacation Rental by Owner" (and we do so with all of our travel!).

Anyways, Rebecca and her condo are a delight.....would we stay there again? You bet, already booked it for our next trip to Kona!

Clean and comfortable

Loved the place! It was clean and had a ton of decorations. The ocean view is from across the street but not bad for the price. The downtown area is about a 5 minute drive but nothing in walking distance except beach. The pool is not that great because it does not have an ocean view but we got the keys to complex next door and it was right on the ocean. The owner was great and kept in contact with us to ensure we had a nice stay.

BUDGET SAVING BEAUTY!!!

This is the BEST rental we've found in our 10 years of spending our holidays along the Kona coast. Lovely modern decor with an Asian-Pacific flavor. CLEAN, comfortable (what a wonderful bed!) and convenient. This is a very large studio stocked with all one could possibly want--and so many extras! Quality bed and bath linens, coolers, boogie boards. paper plates, condiments, etc..
It is obviously well cared for by the on-island owner---who is SO helpful and clear in all email communications. I especially enjoyed my early morning coffee on the lanai--watching the waves roll onto an empty beach. SO relaxing....
We give this place 5 STARS and 4 THUMBS UP!!! We've already booked 10 nights in the spring.
