DIRECT OCEAN FRONT AT WORLD FAMOUS BANYAN'S SURF BREAK; FULLY UPDATED

Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

Condo, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

Our Kona Bali Kai 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom with Full Width Lanai Condominium is DIRECT OCEAN FRONT with an underhand rock toss to the sea wall. You can't get any closer and stay dry. If you want DIRECT Ocean Front, DIRECTLY in front of the most popular Island surf break in a TOTALLY remodeled unit at a reasonable price you have found it.

Our late 2010 purchased condo underwent a complete (demo'd to block walls and rebuilt over a 3 month period) $75,000 remodel with the work managed by the retired Project Manager Owner. New custom cherry cabinets in Kitchen/Baths, Matching Granite slab counters, new front walkway windows and rear Lanai sliders, new custom tiled showers (Master bath w/ glass block enclosure), new patterned floor tile in Greatroom/lanai, new bedroom rugs, new (2013) Samsung 40' flat panel High def. TV and Blue Ray player. Quality Casablanca Fans in each major room and 12,000 BTU AC unit. We also provide free long distance calls to the Mainland US/Canada and free Wifi.

The famous (site of frequent competitions) Banyan Surf Break is again DIRECTLY in front of our unit so you'll enjoy watching the surfers while relaxing on the lanai. Our unit is on the convenient 3rd building level with free ground level parking and no steps to unit with use of the elevator.

The Living Room and Master Bedroom each utilize floor to ceiling sliders accessing the spacious ocean front lanai. The new sliders are double glass so you can control the ocean surf noise level in the condo by opening or shutting the doors. Custom shoji type silhouette sliding glass panels (Unique to Kona Bali Kai) separate the Greatroom from the MBR.

The accessible coastline in front of Kona Bali Kai has tide pools and sandy areas - perfect for poking around on a lazy afternoon. Free propane fired outdoor barbeques are available for guests and a turtle (Hono) visitor or two is a frequent sight.

Condo square footing including lanai is about 1,000'. You will notice VRBO adds for KBK 2BR units show

different sizes. All 2 BR KBK units are the same size to my knowledge! The interior is just over 800' and the full width lanai is about 200 square feet.

White Sands County Park is 1 mile south, Kahaluu snorkeling beach/bay is 2 miles south and there is a great small hidden beach a short walk away I'll tell you about in my client letter upon booking.

We live nearby (1 mile) at an ocean view condo which we managed as a vacation rental for 10 years before retiring and moving to Kona. We understand how important our guests vacation time is and do our utmost to provide a positive experience. We provide a detailed 16 page guest letter to our clients listing our favorite guide book and information on a host of our favorite beaches, day hikes and snorkel spots to help you with your vacation planning.

There is a Concierge available in the Kona Bali Kai lobby to help you with commercial excursions like Luau's, etc.

Sharon is a part time commercial artist specializing in tropical flower water colors. You will enjoy several examples of her paintings in the condo.

Master Bedroom has a full size king bed with nightstands and chest of drawers; 2nd BR has a queen bed with nightstands, dresser and 26' LCD TV.

If unit 305 is booked check out our sister condo @ Kona Bali Kai unit 219. Its listed under VRBO.com/490632. Unit 219 is just like 305 except a reverse layout and located 1 level below + a few units to the north of unit 305. Unit 219 welcomed our first client in Dec. 2013 after completion of an $80K+ full remodel.

Kindly take the time to read our client referrals - you will find them unparalleled!

Lynn Noffsinger (retired Intel Engineer) and Sharon Noffsinger (retired Educator) were able to achieve a long term goal by moving to Hawaii in early 2009. Our nearby residence (1 mile south from Kona Bali Kai) was a successful VRBO vacation rental (# 2767) for 10 years from 1999 to 2009. We understand the importance of our clients vacation time and make every effort to provide an outstanding value. Many of our former clients were repeat visitors or friends and family of previous clients.

Except when rarely off island we accomplish all turnovers ourselves to insure the condo is perfect for your arrival.

Lynn Noffsinger purchased this condo in 2010

Direct oceanfront facing a world class surfbreak with the best climate in the world. What else can we say other than how do you spell Pina Colada??

First you need to make the impossible choice of enjoying the lanai view or hop in the rental car and go exploring.

For lunch why not utilize the provided ocean front barbeques or check out the small 'POKI Shack' lunch spot next to the lobby for some island 'soul' food and a brewski?? Poki is the island version of Ahi (Tuna) sushi.

Across the street is a convenience store for those forgotten condiments, drinks and snacks.

A concierge is available in the lobby most days to help you plan excursions and local events.

Free island bus service is available in front of the building along with a frequent $2/trip tourist shuttle into town and shopping.

Too many options, not enough time - recommend enjoying the lanai view and watching the surfers wipe out while you mull over options.

There is also a small, secluded sand beach with water access a short walk away I'll tell you about it in my Guest letter.

Best ocean front condo in Kona

Thanks so much for allowing us to stay in your beautiful condo. It was a great vacation for our family. The owner, Lynn, was great offering numerous ideas for us to do while on the Big Island. The condo was beautiful, clean and well stocked with the things we needed.
Lynn kept in contact before our arrival and was extremely helpful since we had never been to the Big Island before.
I would recommend this unit to anyone

Great condo in paradise!

Fantastic waterfront condo--the best surfing on the island off the lanai, and awesome sunsets every night! The condo is very clean, and has been remodeled to exacting standards. The ambiance was such that we opted to stay in several evenings and eat on the lanai, watching whales in the distance and listening to the waves. A couple of mornings were spent drinking coffee and watching surfers. Ahhh, paradise! The owners are very responsive and have great suggestions for what to see and do. We will definitely be back!

Location, location, location! During my family's stay, we had a front row viewing of the local high school surfing competition. It wAs great to just sit and watch every morning during the weekend we stayed at this condo.

What a wonderful view!

This condo has really enhanced our vacation to the Big Island.
The interior of the condo is very well maintained and clean. The kitchen is well equipped. The sliding panels can expand the field of view of the sea and it is very pleasant. The view on the large terrace (lanai) alone justifies renting this condo. Having our meals a few feet from the sea and watching the surfers was a fabulous experience. This terrace is really one of the best positioned throughout the building in order to see the surfers. There were enough beach toys for our two children. There were masks and a boogie board too. The owner was very courtly with us, he answered us promptly by email or phone and everything was easy. If one of these days we come back to Big Island and want to reselect a condo in Kona Bali Kai, we would choose the same again without hesitation.
