The Perfect Condo Experience
Our family of 5 adults stayed at this absolutely beautiful penthouse condo in early January. The pictures accurately reflect the beauty and comfort of the condo but there's no way to capture the totally fantastic view. From the huge balcony we enjoyed gorgeous sunsets every night, right below us was a large tidepool area were turtles hung out, black lava rocks worth exploring, and swaying palm trees. We could watch the surfers off to the right and we even saw a few whales (binoculars provided at condo). Staying here added so much to our Hawaii experience as we loved the sound of the pounding waves (high surf in the winter makes for big waves), the constant outstanding view (even while cooking), and the the fact we could enjoy happy hours, meals and play cards in the evening on the balcony. The condo also had beach chairs, plush beach towels, and a cooler that we greatly appreciated and used everytime we hit the beach.
The condo's kitchen was very well equipped and there was nothing we needed that we couldn't find. They even have a coffee grinder for your Kona coffee. We were provided with spices, paper towels, toilet paper, napkins, detergent, dishwashing soap, hand soap, and a starter pack of Kona coffee. The Costco is just south of the airport and a Safeway and Wal-Mart is close by. Hair dryers were provided in each of the bathrooms which was great - one less bulky item to pack.
Holly, the property manager, was wonderful to work with. She was very prompt in responding back to us and we exchanged a number of emails before our visit as I had a lot of questions. She met us at Kona Bali Kai, walked through the condo with us, and was available during our stay if we needed her.
The Kona Bali Kai is an older development but it's very well kept and clean. Keep in mind that each condo has it's own owner so the condition and quality of the units can vary greatly (especially the mountain units) but we can 100% vouch for this unit and highly recommend it. . . and we will.

Owner's Response: Thank you SO much Cathy for submitting the awesome review!!! I appreciate it so much! I need the feed back from my renters for all my potential renters to read, so that they can see that it is a great place and perfect for their Kona vacation getaway accommodations! Hopefully, we'll see you back again next year sometime!!!
