About Mike Watson

We started coming to the Big Island in 1998 and purchased this condo in May 2012. We enjoy everything about the big Island and take great pride in keeping our condo's well maintained, clean and fully stocked just like our own home.

Mike Watson purchased this condo in 2012

Why Mike Watson chose Kona Coast

We love the Kona Bali Kai because of the ocean front views. There are no better ocean front views from anywhere on the island. We also like being on the forth (top floor) as you have high beamed ceilings, no noise from above, cannot see anyone else when you look out into the ocean.

What makes this condo unique

Who ever dreamed you could lie in bed and look out into the ocean with no obstructions. The sound of the rolling waves will take you into full relaxation immediately upon arrival.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

Just wanted to say a big thank you for allowing us to stay in your condo in Kona. We had a fabulous time, and just loved your condo. It is in a fantastic location and very close to some great snorkeling spots. We went snorkeling every day, and saw turtles every day, including right out the front of the condo. The water was so crystal clear that you could see the fish swimming around. There is nothing quite like going to sleep in a really comfy bed with the sound of the ocean in the background. The condo was really clean and well stocked. We have stayed in a number of places like this around the world and I must say that this is one of the best. It was great to be able to BBQ on the oceans edge, but we also ate at some great restaurants as well. The sunsets from the lanai were absolutely amazing, got some great photos. Thank you for sending us such a comprehensive list of things to do and see, it was a big help. Hopefully it won't be too long before we are able to return to Hawaii, just waiting for the AUD to improve, and would be excited to rent your place again.

Excellent condo

  • 5 of 5

Great condo. Views from the lanai were spectacular. We utilized it daily and at various times of the day to watch the turtles, whales, surfers, and sunsets. Kids loved exploring the beach and utilizing the swimming pool. Great home based for adventures: snorkeling, shopping, dining, etc. The condo had everything we needed, from meal preparation to beach excursions. Mike called and emailed to make sure we arrived ok and everything in the condo was to our satisfaction. He also provided a wealth of information prior to arrival, which came in very handy when choosing where to shop, eat, and visit/explore. We would definitely recommend staying here and we hope to visit again soon.

Best Sunset Ever from Lanai

  • 5 of 5

This condo had the best sunset view ever. It was an extremely comfortable way to end our vacation. Although this is a busy stretch of road, it never felt like there was too much traffic pulling in and out. We really appreciated the security at the property, and we were always able to park near the stairs up to the unit (there's also an elevator, which was much appreciated when we arrived and left). I loved being able to brush my teeth (in the master bath) and look in the mirror, out to the ocean behind me. Also, waking up, opening the curtains and watching the surfers from bed. The condo is clean and obviously well-maintained. The chairs on the lanai were great (both loungers and chairs around the table). This condo really had everything you could possibly need. There were beach towels, both a small and larger cooler, chairs we took to the beach and a boogie board my husband and daughter enjoyed. The KTA down the street was great for stocking up with groceries -- and the condo even had cloth shopping bags (plastic bags are banned now in most of Hawaii). Mike (owner) gave excellent advice on area beaches and we went to a different one each day. I highly recommend this condo!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for the nice comments about your visit to the Big Island and our Kona Bali Kai condo. We also have just returned to Kona and happy to advise past and future guests we have added a ceiling fan to the lanai. We hope to see you back to the condo soon and remember to book early as we do stay booked out about 9 to 12 months in advance. Mahalo, Mike and Katrina

Great Place

  • 5 of 5

This is a great property. We were there with another couple and it worked out great. Lots of space and 2 well appointed bathrooms. Location is excellent for going into town and the other way to snorkel is easy also. Watched the surfers for hours and great locally caught fish available from the guy at the park next door. Condo has everything you need for a comfortable stay. Mike was great to deal with and we were very happy with the late check out for the red eye flight home. Definitely recommend this condo. The only caveat is the street noise as Alii Drive wakes up early. Hardly noticeable after a couple nights. Thanks for the great experience. Mahalo

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your comements. Guests should remember that to elimiante any traffice noise to shut the windows on the mauka side at night and leave open the lanai doors. That way the only noise you will ever hear is the ocean waves. Mahalo and hope to see you back soon at the condo.

Wonderful condo!

  • 5 of 5

I can only reiterate what other reviewers have said - this is just an amazing property. The condo itself is very comfortable. It was nice and clean when we arrived and there is nothing you will lack for your stay. And the view - most of the time we couldn't pry ourselves off the lanai! If you enjoy photography take along your camera and tripod. We have a picture taken one morning from the lanai of a whale breaching that is just fantastic. There were turtles and fish every day in the tide pools and the surfers were really fun to watch. The sunsets - words fail - almost too beautiful to be real. And if you enjoy poke - Da Poke Shack on the premises of the condo building is a must try. I really can't say enough good things about this condo. We had the most wonderful trip!

Relax in Paradise!

  • 5 of 5

This is the second time we have stayed in this unit and it truly has the most AMAZING VIEW you could ever want! The beautiful blue water is mesmerizing as it ebbs and flows against the lava rocks on the shore, and you can sit on the lanai and watch colorful fish, sea turtles, dolphins, surfers…it's unreal! We enjoyed it so much that we were out there constantly, even preferring to dine in rather than go to a restaurant and miss the sunset from the perfect vantage point. The owners have thought of everything to make you feel at home with all of the amenities you need to enjoy your stay, including a fully equipped kitchen, laundry supplies, comfortable beds, and even coolers and beach chairs for your day time adventures. The unit is not far from the airport, close to town for plenty of shopping and dining, and within quick driving distance of snorkeling and other activities. There are plenty of fun things to do and see on the Big Island. If you want a relaxing retreat with a gorgeous ocean view, don't waste your time sitting in a cramped hotel room…book this condo to experience Hawaiian paradise!
