Guestbook comments from the owner

Kath & Bruce, thank you so much for sharing your condo. We did enjoy the sunset from Mauna Kea and experienced Waipio Valley and have enjoyed every minute on the lanai. It has been great fun watching the surfers. We would like to come back in 2013 to the Ironman in October.

The sea was everything.

  • 3 of 5

My husband and I vacationed here with adult children. The home met our needs. The sea is everything. We watched many surfers, of all ages, hurtling down the twelve -fifteen foot waves that broke on many lava rocks at the shore. We saw some sea turtles, one on the shore resting, just passed the barbecue pit. It was exhausted. We also saw some in the surging surf. One afternoon we spotted dolphins racing at a distance.

The home was fully equipped. The fans circulated the air well enough. The hard water had blocked the dish washer outlets, so we reported this to the manager for attention.

We loved every minute!

  • 4 of 5

The condo had everything anyone could ask for and more. We ended up eating in/BBQing most nights because it was so fun to watch the sunset, surfers and visit with others that were staying at Kona Bali Kai as well. The master bedroom was fantastic and the bed & pillows were very comfortable. That's a plus when staying somewhere for over a week. Thank you so much!

Oceanfront with beautiful sunsets

  • 4 of 5

Our two bedroom condo was clean, comfortable and equipped with everything we could need. The owners, Bruce and Kathy provided us with tons of valuable information on what to do on Hawaii . On our lanai we were entertained daily by surfers, sea turtles and dolphins. We would definitely stay here again.

This was our third trip to the big island and our first time staying at the Bali Kai. The condo was very good and the location is excellent. Kathy, the owner was so helpful and very attentive to all of our needs.

The view is amazing and watching dolphins, turtles and surfers from the lanai was a daily joy!

Vacation we will never forget!

  • 5 of 5

First, the condo was exactly as described, worked perfectly for our party of four. The bed in the master bedroom was so comfortable. We slept like babies! Sunsets were to die for, and watched surfers all the time.

Wish I could upload the pictures we took from the lanai because the view was so gorgeous! So many turtles, and they're huge — we would sit in the mornings while drinking Kona coffee (my husband was in Heaven because he adores Kona coffee) and watch the turtles swim in the surf and their heads popping up for air after the wave fun. Between 8 a.m. and 9 a.m., almost every morning, you could see pods of dolphins swimming. They're out there a ways so you need to look hard, but the sun glistened on their heads, backs and dorsal fins.

**Only word of caution, the rocky beach at the condo houses sea urchins. They're brown/black in color and have long spike like spines sticking out of them, and they cling to rocks. Wear water shoes! Our teens decided not to wear their water shoes and were back in 10 minutes with feet embedded with urchin spines because they accidentally stepped on them, very painful. Luckily we found that soaking the afflicted areas in warm white vinegar for 30-60 minutes helps to dissolve the spines.

We found the best place to snorkel was Hapuna State Beach Park, if you have a rental car it's worth the drive. We took a day and drove to Volcano, Hawaii and were lucky enough the volcano was active that day and spewing lava. It's worth the drive, however, bring water and stop when you can for restroom breaks — one thing we found is that once you're outside Kona it gets a little rural. It also takes a fair amount of time to get places because the roads are very narrow and curvy. If you decide to take a trip to the volcanoes, give yourselves plenty of time to hike and/or drive around, this really is a day trip and dress warmer than you would. Lots of misty rain and with the elevation climb the temperature was almost 20-degrees cooler.

The food in Kailua Kona is superb, we loved the Fish Hopper and I have to say the fish tacos and Bubba Gumps were the best I've ever had! The tuna melt at the Kona Inn Restaurant was awesome and we loved the fish n' chips. If you're a football fan, particularly a Green Bay Packers fan, go to Quinn's Almost By The Sea sports bar — family friendly, awesome place for food, drinks and football.

We are already planning our next trip because this truly was a vacation we will never forget!

This is an absolute OCEAN FRONT location! Close to town, farmers market, arts &crafts and great snorkeling beaches. On famous 'Banyons' pro-surfing Beach. Lyman's' beach, just down the street for the intermediate surfer. Kahaluu Beach Park just 1 mile south for beginner surfers and swimming. Watch the surfers from sun up to sun set. Watch the sea turtles in their natural habitat below your lanai. Lot's of tide pools too! Seasonal Whale watching is spectacular! The true feeling of HAWAII...
