About Renee Contreras
We are the Contreras-Tercero family -Renee, Frank, Mario, and our beloved dog Karma. We absolutely fell in love with the Kona area and we were blessed to find the perfect top floor condo. We hope you have the time of your lives staying as our guests!
Renee Contreras purchased this Condo in 2011
Why Renee Contreras chose Kailua-Kona
The Kona Bali Kai is a beautiful location as close to the ocean as you can get. It is very well kept and close to everything. We looked at many oceanfront locations, but none compared to the Bali Kai.
What makes this Condo unique
The condo is private, on the top floor, close to elevator (but not too close), and beautifully furnished. We are one of the very few units at the Bali Kai with air conditioning. Enjoy the most awesome ocean views and sunsets from our spacious and private lanai. The sounds of the surf are breathtaking. Free wifi provided, flatscreen TV in living room and both bedrooms. 2 full baths with shower and bathtub in both. Our guests tell us they have never seen a more well-stocked condo. We try to provide everything you will need - down to laundry soap, fabric softener, paper towels, kleenex, condiments, spices, and everything you'd need to cook and bake. You can watch the surfers from the lanai, along with the turtles who live in the tide pools. There's a store right across the street and Da Poke shack right on the premises - a traditional Hawaiian deli. There's also a surf/dive shop and a concierge to help you plan your activities.

Spectacular Ocean Front Condo!
We absolutely loved this top floor, well stocked, warm and welcoming, beautifully furnished condo with the ocean waves crashing just below you! It was fun to explore the tide pools right outside your door and watch the sunsets from the chairs by the beach. The Big Island was the last of the islands for us to visit and we've completely fallen in love! We WILL be back... and soon! Renee, the owner, is easy to work with and offers EVERYTHING you could think you'd need and even some things you didn't realize you'd need! Georgia, who manages the property, was friendly and offered great suggestions for beaches and dining. Sam Choy's has the yummiest Lava Flow drinks and fresh fish sandwich. Hapuna Beach is definitely worth the drive up north. Long sandy beach, easy to enter the water. GREAT for swimming. Turtles also roam around. Two steps Beach is a little more challenging to get into the water but WORTH it! Snorkeling was incredible! We saw TONS of tropical fish, turtles, and even swam with 30+ spinner dolphins!!!! An unforgettable, once in a lifetime experience! Some fun, "must see" adventures include Volcano Nat'l Park on the Hilo side, Akaka Falls, and malasades at Panaku'u Bake Shop! Yum! All in all it was a memorable, wonderful vacation! Can't wait to come again... and when we do, there is no better place to stay! Thank you, Renee! Mahalo!
Location location location
We enjoyed many hours on the lanai watching the waves, surfers, turtles, eating, and just relaxing. Property was centrally located and well stocked with everything you could need.
What a wonderful week we had in this condo! As the other reviews have stated, the location was amazing. We were impressed with how well stocked the condo was - our every need was met. Parking (in the covered garage) was always available. Though the road Kona Bali Kai is located on is rather busy, the condo was very, very quiet - other than the constant sound of the ocean waves off the balcony 😊� There is a reason there are so many 5-Star reviews and people come back here over and over. The complex and condo are not new but obviously carefully maintained. Thank you!
Thank you so very much for your wonderful comments.! We greatly appreciate it. We’re so glad you had a wonderful time, that’s most important to us.

Wonderful condor, amazing sunsetviews. Bedroom streetside a bit noisy. And we did not recognize that the condo is a bit far away from downtown. There were no restaurants or bars in walking distance.
A lots of very useful tips were given. In total we had a wonderful time. Mahalo
Aloha future guests! To avoid any confusion, we do indeed provide an info packet in advance that tells guests our condo is not downtown, but on the same ocean road about 2.5 miles from downtown Kona, which is quieter and closer to snorkel and other beaches. This guest mentioned some street noise, but there is more street noise if you stay in the heart of downtown. There is always some street noise on an oceanfront road and we rarely have received any complaints about it. . We thank all our guests for their helpful comments but we wanted to clear up any possible questions. Mahalo, Renee & Frank
Great views, good location, turtles but worn feeling.
Love the views, area, turtles and surfers right outside your lanai! Hearing the crashing waves from the ocean side bedroom is wonderful for falling asleep. Set up of condo and amenities provided are very good. However, corrosion/lack of maintenance was a notable change from the last time we visited, six years ago.
This is our third or fourth time in this condo. Renee has thought of everything! The kitchen is well stocked. There are beach chairs, coolers , grocery bags, etc. But the best part of this condo is the lanai. I can spend hours there. From dolphins to turtles to surfers, there is always something going on!! Until next time....
Driving Range, Active Volcano, Kona International Market, City of Refuge, Royal Residences, whale watching and swimming with the dolphins. 7 climates on the Big Island including rainforest tropics, snow-topped mountains
