Kailua Kona Condo Rental Photos and Description

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

Our direct ocean front condo sits 30' behind the Kona Bali Kai seawall. You can't get any closer to the sea without getting wet.

If you want DIRECT Ocean Front, next to the most popular Island surf break in a TOTALLY remodeled unit at a great price point look no further.

The 2BR/BA unit just completed an $80,000 wall to wall full remodel. We welcomed our first client in Dec., 2013. The new 5 star interior is unbeatable with custom Cherry cabinetry, solid granite counters, new windows, new patterned tiled floors, new stainless steel appliances and new, comfortable beds.

Total square footage including lanai is about 1,000'. You will notice different sizes quoted in KBK adds. To my knowledge all 2BR ocean front units are the same size? Interiors are about 806 square feet + the 200 square feet lanai.

Enjoy our full width lanai with new top of the line Pella double glass, low e, Fiberglass sliders adjoining the master bedroom and Greatroom. If the surf noise at night is to loud just use the doors to control the sound level.

Entertainment center includes 39' Samsung TV with cable box to receive Hi Def Programming, DVD movie player, Small RCA stereo w/remote and Router for free Wifi.

Each major room has a quality Casablanca All Weather Ceiling Fan to keep you cool along with a new, 12,000 BTU A/C in the Greatroom for those rare late summer sticky days. Most Ocean Front units @ Kona Bali Kai

do not provide AC (its rarely needed!).

We provide free long distance calls to the US and Canada Mainland.

The famous (site of frequent competitions) Banyan Surf Break is just offshore from our unit so you'll enjoy watching the surfers in between checking out the frequent turtle (Honu) visitor in the natural lava pond directly in front of the lanai.

Our unit is on the convenient 2nd building level with quick access to free ground level parking, courtyard pool and no steps to apartment if you prefer to use the elevator. Just a narrow strip of lawn separates you from the ocean. The natural rock pool in front forces the waves to break out from shore further, reducing the surf noise level, a plus.

Custom shoji type silhouette sliding glass panels (Unique to Kona Bali Kai) separate the Greatroom from the MBR.

The coastline in front of Kona Bali Kai has accessible tide pools and sandy areas - perfect for poking around on a lazy afternoon. Free Oceanfront propane fired outdoor Barbeques with adjacent picnic tables are available for guests.

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.

We live nearby (1 mile south) 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, exclusive 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. We also provide tips on how to save airfare & car rental expenses.

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. She needs to pull out her brushes again to complete additional pictures for the new digs.

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

This is our 2nd Kona Bali Kai Direct Ocean Front Rental. See VRBO listing 329786 for details and pictures of our sister unit a few doors away that sits directly in front of the Banyan's surf break.

Note: Unit 219 matches unit 305's layout except the layouts are reversed.

About Lynn Noffsinger

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

This is our 2nd purchased ocean front unit @ Kona Bali Kai. Lynn set up a special IRA fund which allowed him to purchase this unit directly and market under the name of Konanoff LLC but after all the legalese its just Lynn and Sharon's 2nd great unit.

Lynn Noffsinger purchased this condo in 2013

Why Lynn Noffsinger chose Kailua Kona

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

What makes this condo unique

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 ocean front barbeques or check out the small 'POKI Shack' lunch spot just down the steps 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 and local ($2/trip) bus service is available in front of the building.

Too many options, not enough time - recommend enjoying the lanai view, watching the surfers wipe out and say hello to the Turtles while you think about it.

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

Everything Hawaii has to Offer!!!

  • 5 of 5
We arrived well after dark and were welcomed by the sound of crashing waves off the lanai. Imagine our surprise at sunrise!!! The view is absolutely beautiful!!! We watched porpoise, spinner dolphins, sea turtles and even reef fish from the lanai. Throw in some kona coffee and you have the epitome of a real vacation. We spent 12 days on the Big Island and used this location as a home base. The owner Lynn pays close attention to detail. The unit was in excellent condition and it worked well for two couples. The outdoor grill was wonderful as well. Lynn provides a very helpful list of information from car rentals to must see areas. The current rate is extremely reasonable for what you get. This was our best VRBO to date. We can't wait to return!!!

WOW!

  • 5 of 5
I don't even know where to start. Sitting out on our lanai about 20 feet from the Pacific Ocean watching the sea turtles. Do I need to say more? Yes I do. The owners of this condo, Lynn & Sharon who I had the pleasure of meeting are great people. They live a mile away from the condo and make sure that it is perfect when you arrive. The pictures that they have listed are spot on. The upgrades in this unit are second to none. Multiple ceiling fans, air condition, gourmet granite kitchen and bathrooms, brand-new washer and dryer, comfortable furniture (with sofa bed), convenient parking right under unit.
My wife and I came with our 13-year-old daughter and 17-year-old son. We all had plenty of space (unlike the hotel room we had to deal with in Honolulu.) We came back to Kona after missing the big Island for 12 years. Staying in Lynn and Sharon's condo was a great decision. So to summarize, probably the BEST 2 BEDROOM CONDO IN KONA.

Nicely Remodeled Condo

  • 4 of 5
Very nicely appointed unit and nicely kept grounds. We were here at kind of off season so it was nice and quiet.

It's not on a swim beach or walking distance to the shops in town so you probably need a car to get around.

We made no complaints to the owner but one suggestion would be to have the unit professionally cleaned between rentals. The prior occupents must not have made use of the dishwasher in the kitchen...

Owner's Response: Sharon and I (owners) do the turnovers when on island to insure quality and cleanliness. We may have missed a previous renter
putting away stackable dishes that were not cleaned properly as we would not normally check them.
In our guest letter to our clients we request they contact us immediately if any issues. This client did not. We could have easily corrected this if we had been contacted.
So to all vacationers - if you have any issues with your vacation rental, even a minor issue, please contact the rental agent vs.listing issues after the fact in the review - owners will appreciate that.

Ocean Front Gem

  • 5 of 5
Sitting on the lanai enjoying the ocean view on our last afternoon on the Big Island. Condo was perfect, eveything one could need. Decently stocked kitchen, great beach chairs and nice renos. Thanks Lynn!
Fairly easy access to all the sightseeing. Our top picks: Bamboo Restaurant in Hawi for Kakua pork, then hike down to black sand beach at Pololu Lookout, than ice cream at Tropical Dreams on the way back out. Kua Bay in Kekaki State Park for best boogie board waves, Greenwell's for kona coffee. Hapuna Beach for best sandy beach, although disappointed you now have to pay.

Fabulous vacation in a beautiful condo

  • 5 of 5
My sister and her husband vacationed with my husband and I in this fabulous condo. It has been recently completely renovated and is in excellent condition with many high quality finishes. The owner was very easy to deal with if we needed anything in the condo. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay and will definitely consider it again on our next trip.

Kona has the best climate in Hawaii; perhaps the world. Little rain and what there is comes mostly in the evening and nighttime. Enjoy waking up to sunny mornings and enjoying your Direct ocean front Lanai.

Lots of beaches/ocean activities/golfing/restaurants and hiking to keep your days as busy as you want them.
