Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Oceanfront, 2 BR, 2 BA, Sleeps 6, Short Stay Specials from $100/night-call owner

This desirable oceanfront penthouse unit (with elevator) features spacious open beam ceilings and is only 30 feet from the gentle surf lapping directly below the lanai, where surfers launch into the spectacular blue waves of Banyans Beach, one of Kona’s most popular surfing spots. This beautifully remodeled and furnished condo features an oceanfront living room and master bedroom with unparalleled 180 degree ocean views and access to spectacular Kona sea life and sunsets. Your cares dissolve away as warm sun and soothing surf caress your mind and body on the unique ironwood-framed teak lanai in your comfortable teak steamer chairs or hammock. Enjoy the brilliant blue skies, colorful Hawaiian reef fish, green sea turtles, Humpback whales, spinner dolphins and surfers right from your lanai. In the quiet evening, relax on your lanai and experience the amazing reds and oranges of a spectacular Kona sunset as the huge orb descends into the sea through the softly waving palm fronds. Luxuriate in the newly remodeled master bathroom and shower with multiple shower heads, double sinks and contemporary tile work. The beautiful bamboo hardwood floors throughout, well stocked kitchen with granite countertops, wine cooler and contemporary cabinets and upscale Hawaiian-themed furnishings will make you wish you never had to leave. During the day, slide the 12’-wide doors between the master bedroom and living room into the wall pocket to enjoy an unrestricted panoramic ocean view from throughout the living area. At night, leave the lanai doors open in the oceanfront master bedroom and living room and be lulled to sleep by the ceaseless caress of the waves on the worn lava rocks below. Gentle ocean breezes keep you cool day and night whether snoozing on the lanai, entertaining friends in your oceanfront paradise or sleeping soundly in your king-size bed (click on 'More Details' to see all the unit amenities).

Amenities include free in-unit password protected WiFi and internet access, full-size washer and dryer, wine cooler, large and small ice chests, frozen ice packs, beach chairs, beach towels, beach mats, boogie boards, snorkel gear, children’s beach toys, two pack ‘n plays, popular board and table games, puzzles, BluRay DVD players, 3 flat screen TVs, stereo with iPad/iPhone/iPod docking station, iron and ironing board, safe, and wall-mounted hair dryers.

About Mike Gaudette

We are native Oregonians and began vacationing in Hawaii about 20 years ago. We loved the islands so much we came back more and more often. We initially bought a one-bedroom condo in 2006 at Kona Bali Kai, across the street from the beach with no ocean view. We live on the Oregon coast, but rarely go to the beach; so, when we decided to buy a larger condo we wanted to be right on the beach - and you can't get any closer than our condo at Kona Bali Kai. We love sharing Hawaii with our kids, grandkids and many friends.

Mike Gaudette purchased this condo in 2007

Why Mike Gaudette chose Kailua Kona

We live on the often rainy Oregon coast and didn't want to come to Hawaii and be in the rain. The dry Kona coast is perfect for our vacations. And the nearly constant trade winds keep our condo cool day and night. Kona Bali Kai is perfectly situated along Ali'i Drive. It's close enough to old town Kailua-Kona for a refreshing walk into town, but not close enough to have a lot of unwanted traffic or commercial activity. And, of course, you can't get any closer to the beach than at the Kona Bali Kai and where else can you watch surfers and sea life all day long from your lanai?

What makes this condo unique

We love our 4th floor unit with open-beam ceilings that create a feeling of spaciousness We love that the 12' doors separating the living room from the master bedroom disappear completely into the wall during the day (no other unit at Kona Bali Kai has this feature) so that there is a panoramic view of the ocean and surfers from anywhere in the unit. We love the way the sun sets every night right between the palm trees off our lanai and how we can sit on the lanai and watch surfers, whales (in season) and turtles. One of the most unusual features of our unit is the teak lanai framed in Hawaiian ironwood and bamboo hardwood floors throughout the unit.. The newly remodeled master bath and walk-in shower features your choice of an adjustable shower head on the wall or a drenching rain head in the ceiling, dual cabinets and sinks, and an elongated toilet. We love to play games and spend time at the beach in Hawaii, so the unit is fully equipped with games and beach accessories, including children's play toys.

Fantastic !!

We had a great time at this place .

Everything was just perfect ! Stunning views, quiet nights with waves crashing sounds.It was beautiful and very very relaxing . The house was loaded with all you would need for vacation and everything was very very clean . The unit is more beautiful than the pictures

Mike was extremely great ! He was always on top of things and helped throughout our stay. Whenever we had a question, he was always there to answer . I missed some of my stuff in the room and he was gracious enough to ship it to my place .

Overall great service, great views and definitely recommend this place

Great Condo

  • 5 of 5
When we 1st stepped on the property the view was beautiful, Mike the Owner was pretty quick about dealing with some issues and the staff there were friendly and went above and beyond. We stayed there for 3 days and did nothing but sat on the lanai and watched the surfers, boogie boarders, spinner dolphins and was a great place to stay for 2 people. It had everything you could think off and not too far from the shops and restaurants. Kind of a walk but it was great. If I ever return we would definitely stay there again

Wonderful Holiday Home!

  • 5 of 5
We had a wonderful relaxing time at this Kona oceanfront condo. It was beautifully close to the ocean and we loved the sounds of the crashing waves. It was extremely well equipped - lots of kitchen-ware and snorkeling gear etc. There was everything we needed. Parking was easy, the location was great - we really enjoyed our holiday there and will be back one day we hope!!

Honeymooners

  • 5 of 5
We had a great time staying here as part of our honeymoon vacation. I can't say enough about the amazing view! We spent hours watching the local surf break and sea turtles from the lani. Everything in the condo is well maintained and makes you feel right at home. Waking up next to the sound of ocean waves crashing and the fresh ocean air was a major plus. I can't wait to plan our next vacation here. Mike was a wonderful host and always full of information.

Best visit to Kona ever.

  • 5 of 5
We love Kona and luckily we were fortunate enough to find this gem. Sometimes pictures don't accurately describe a place, in this case it was even more beautiful than the pictures. I was concerned that there was no AC, but after arriving in the heat of the day and opening everything up, it wasn't necessary. The 2nd bedroom got some traffic noise, but we remedied it by closing window and using an extra fan in the unit. Everything we needed was at our fingertips. Mike was an amazing host. He was available to answer any questions we had.there was nothing he didn't think of. Many times we say, who cares where we stay, we won't be in the room much anyway. In this case we didn't want to leave the condo. We have never slept so good or felt so rested. We would watch the surfers for hours. We saw sea turtles in the tide pools. The Poke Shack was heaven. The staff at the condos were so kind and they think very highly of Mike. The location was perfect. We can't wait to go back, I just hope its available because anyone who stays here will want to go back. Love it !!!❤️❤️
