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 Kona Coast

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.

Hello, turtles!

  • 5 of 5

Really lovely location -- the lanai is directly over tide pools where we saw turtles every afternoon. The condo is clean and superbly appointed -- condiments in the refrigerator, beach supplies for renters' use, and a comfortable, relaxing environment. When we first arrived, the internet wasn't working, but I emailed the owner and she replied promptly. The issue was fixed right away. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would love to go back!

Fantastic Kona Getaway!

  • 5 of 5

My wife and i celebrated our 44 wedding anniversary in this condo. This place has everything you could want and more. Unbelievable ocean views of the the surfers and sea turtles. The sunsets are amazing! We had dinner most evenings on the spacious lanai. Rene and Frank have the place stocked with every thing you could want. And don't forget to try Da Poke Shack down stairs. Thank you for an unforgettable time!!!!!!

Perfect spot!

  • 5 of 5

We have spent a lot of time on the islands and this is the perfect spot, makes me wish we didn't already have a time share. The kitchen is small~I don't cook so I don't care :). The master is a good size and opens to the lanai which is great for sleeping, no street noise and the breeze is fantastic. The lanai is generous in size which is where I spent most of my time reading and watching the waves, turtles, fish, surfers and so on. Everything you could want for the beach or cooking (if you happen to do that sort of thing :) ) is available and of good quality, even games and laundry soap. I appreciate that there are spices and condiments available, unlike our timeshare and I was glad I could leave some unopened food there instead of tossing it. I think the only thing I would change is having a walk in shower available.

Thanks so much for a great condo!

Fantastic condo!

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I have stayed several times at the Kona Bali Kai. The ocean front condo building is an amazing location. This was our first time staying in this unit and it was wonderful. From start to finish, Renee was very easy to deal with and really helpful. The condo itself is fantastic. Very clean and well prepared for our arrival. The kitchen especially is really well stocked. I liked all the placemats and linens to set a pretty table on the lanai. I can't recommend this condo highly enough - we have already booked our return trip for next year!

Wonderful rental!

  • 5 of 5

This unit is perfect. Renee and Frank have thought of everything.From condiments in the kitchen to everything you would need to go to the beach. The best part of the unit is the lanai. You can practically touch the ocean!! We've already booked again for next year!!

A slice of heaven out on the lanai (and much more).....

  • 5 of 5

Renee is a wonderful and responsive host via emails, info sent by mail, and follow up right after check in. The woman who oversees the cleaning and maintenance, who we had a chance to run into as well, is also wonderful, and they do a very thorough cleaning job.

The condo is fabulous! We had a very full itinerary for our 11 days on the Big Island, but one of my best memories is sitting on the balcony.... top floor overlooking the ocean... just doesn't get any better... the sounds of the surf, the sunsets, watching the surfers.... it was so magical.

And the sounds of the surf.... it was so relaxing having our bed right next to the open doors and being lulled to sleep by the surf. And the cross breeze was superb... no need for A/C at all, even though it's equipped just in case.

This condo is so well stocked. For the beach there were chairs, mats, umbrella, boogie boards, towels, coolers. In the kitchen there were all kinds of staples and condiments and any kind of cooking item you can think of, and then some.

It's really conveniently located to Kona and west coast activities, and covered parking to keep your car cool. There is even a spectacular view of the ocean as you pull into your parking.

Some of our highlights & recommendations to share for trip planning...

Kayaking in Kealakekua Bay with a whale and spinner dolphins, and then snorkeling with a lot of fish near Captain Cook Monument - this all in kayaks rented from Bayside Adventures;

Swimming with dolphins and seeing & hearing whales with Roberta Goodman, Jan, & Captain Kit;

Snorkeling at Kahalu'u Beach Park;

Body surfing & boogie boarding (and enjoying the beauty) at Kua Bay/Manini'owali Beach and Hapuna Beach;

$40! massages at Aloha Massage Academy;

Surfing lessons with Ian Foo and family / Hypr Nalu via starting at the simulator in his shop & then real action at Kahalu'u Beach Park;

Great natural food market - Hilo Island Naturals;

Lunch at Alii Buzz - best homemade veggie burgers and natural smoothies;

Gear rental at Snorkel Bobs;

(And when we stayed on the eastern side - Maku'u Farmer's Market, Volcano National Park / the Kilauea Iki Trail, Champagne pond, Akaka Falls, Mauna Kea (day hiking and night skies viewing). Didn't make it to Waipio due to dengue closure, but a suggested highlight from research as well).

And back to Renee and Frank's condo.... the perfect base of operations for exploring all the amazing things on the Big Island, or the perf
