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.

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.

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.
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??
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.
