Our 800+ square feet Kona Bali Kai 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom + 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, 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 rugs in bedrooms, updated electrical system, new 40' flat panel TV w/blue ray player and DVR, Quality Casablanca Fans in each major room and a new, available 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 directly in front of our unit so you'll enjoy watching the surfers while you relax on the full unit width 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 sillouette sliding glass panels (Unique to Kona Bali Kai) separate the Greatroom from the MBR.
The 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.

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.
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 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 mornings to help you plan excursions and local events.
Free island bus service is available in front of the building.
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 a short walk away I'll tell you about it in my Guest letter.
