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.

We knew we found the right condo when we first started speaking with the owner. He provided so much useful information about the condo and The Big Island. Once we arrived and checked in, we were so impressed. The condo was very clean and modern - all decorated in Hawaiian decor. We loved the remodeled bathrooms especially the guest bathroom with the combination shower /tub. Most condo's only have showers and the tub was great for bathing my young children. We found the condo to be very well stocked, having clean fresh linens, bedspreads and towels. We liked having the ice maker and the A/C - even though we never used the A/C. Finally the views were fantastic and loved sitting at the teak wood dining table watching the sunsets after a fun day at the beach. Mahalo for a great stay... We will be back next year!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for your comments. We are happy to you had a nice time and enjoyed the condo. We remodeled both bathrooms and feedback from previous guests were that they liked having a bub in one of the bathrooms. You have validated this again for us. We look forward to seeing you next year at the condo. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Fabulous location, quiet, gorgeous view

  • 4 of 5

I would recommend this condo without reservation.

We stayed here in (hot + humid) July, a family of four, and we felt really lucky to be in such a great location. It's on the top floor so it's quiet -- while we were there noisy work was being done on the pool but from the condo and its balcony you could not hear the work.

The layout is terrific and the split a/c was heaven-sent and worked quickly, quietly, and well. The view is better than you can imagine. Sublime! We made a point of watching sunset every evening, and many mornings we saw dolphins playing outside -- incredible. We loved getting to play in the tidepools just below us, too. (They are slippery so be sure to have hard-soled reef shoes.)

There are two fun swimming beaches a short walk south of the condo building, and because of the location, we felt everything was a pretty easy drive. Plenty of covered parking and an elevator, too. There is a long lawn fronting the ocean, so it was fun to walk along it as well.

There were lots of owner's notes in the condo so we knew where to look for X and what to expect (like putting food away). I LOVED that the unit is filled with towels, so I didn't have to do a load of laundry daily. Although having that washer / dryer (and dishwasher) certainly makes life easier. Love those when traveling! The closet across from the w/d not only had extra towels, it had flashlights, trashbags, laundry detergent -- it was great.

The beds were comfortable. We found in the smaller bedroom that bringing the floor fan to the doorway and blowing the cooler a/c air (from the living room) into it really helped make it bearable (in addition to the ceiling fan).

One other thing: one of our children has significant mobility issues, and this condo building and unit were ideal -- elevator, flat / level, room to maneuver.

Seriously, I would not hesitate to recommend this condo. Thanks, Mike!

I would rate it 3.5 but don't have the option. Incredible location but needs updating

  • 3 of 5

Perfect spot in kona, very quiet, awesome oceanfront location but the little bugs covering all counter surfaces and some of the older well used stained towels detracted from the overall enjoyment. Condo is loaded with everything you could need while away from home and the bed was very comfortable. If the interior was renovated I would absolutely stay here again, there are other renovated units within this building and its time this one was freshened up!!! No real complaints other than the bugs!!

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your feedback, We provide a free land line phone for all guests to use to call us if they have any issues or problems while at the condo. Unfortunately, this guest chose not to call us as we could have probably helped them to have a much more enjoyable stay. In regards to pests and little bugs. This is a state wide problem in Hawaii. You cannot leave food or fruit, vegetables out on the counters otherwise little ants will appear out of nowhere. You must always keep the counter tops cleans and items in the refrigerator. We provide this information to all guests with their check in instruction. We have updated our towels at the suggestion of this guests. In fact our policy is to update our towels and linens twice a year. Just in the last nine months we have added new bamboo floors in both bedrooms, a new air conditioner, a new big screen TV, new rugs, linens, towels, bed spreads, curtains, beach chairs, boogie boards, lanai seat cushions, etc. Two years ago we purchased all new furnishings for the condo and renovated both bathrooms with new showers, sinks, etc. We have a very high standard and pride ourselves on providing guests with a very clean, well maintained and well stocked condo.

Relaxing stay in paradise

  • 5 of 5

We couldn't have stayed in a more beautiful location or been any closer to the ocean. Loved listening to the waves. The unit was very private and quiet.We enjoyed the lanai for morning Kona coffee and evening wine. The week we stayed was a full moon and to see the moonlight reflecting on the ocean was spectacular. This was the perfect basecamp for exploring the island. It is also very close to an amazing snorkeling spot and quick uber ride into town. Best vacation ever! Cant wait to go back. Thank

you to our host. Truly a special place.

Owner's Response: Aloha and many thanks for your comments about your visit. People don't realize that staying in the condo is almost like a staying on a cruise ship, but with a much large and more well equipped room. Listening to the ocean waves is a very relaxing way to spend your nights on the lanai or sleeping on the comfortable king size bed. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Awesome Views - Quiet Location Away from Downtown

  • 4 of 5

We enjoyed a week here in May 2017. We found the Condo very private and comfortable with a very cool layout and a beach-house decor. Large lanai with 4 chairs, round table and 2 loungers. All beach equipment provided. The crashing waves were great entertainment, even when in bed trying to sleep!. All essentials were provided in the very well-stocked kitchen. Having an ice maker in the freezer was a nice perk. We shopped at Safeway and Walmart (NOT a Superstore) for groceries and refreshments. Costco is a short drive away if you need larger quantities. Everything worked well in the condo, keep in mind the clothes dryer is small and took a little while to dry but just don't over-load it. We even had occasion to use the air conditioner on two very humid nights - a nice, albeit rare feature as I found out when looking at potential properties. The only other small issue, and others have mentioned it as well, were the tiny ants on the kitchen counters. We got used to them after a few days - putting ALL your food in the fridge keeps them under control. After speaking with folks off the resort we learned they are not unique to this unit or resort, apparently they're all over the area. Just a tiny annoyance in paradise. Hopefully there are less of them now as I killed every one I could!

The location is great for the amazing ocean views but not close enough to walk to stores or restaurants. There's one Poke(Hawaiian sushi) shop next door that gets great reviews but all other eateries are a drive away. We prefer to walk to happy hour or dinner, have a few cocktails, and walk home. From the condo everything is a short drive away however the trade-off is having a quieter street with much less traffic and people. The small pool in the center of the courtyard looked a little green with algae, other guest were in it but we didn't use it. Nearby beaches were excellent but bring your water shoes, that volcanic rock can be tough on your feet! Mike was a fantastic host, takes pride in his property and provided a detailed orientation guide with lots of great tips - much appreciated!

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback about the condo. I will certainly bring your comments about the pool to the resident site manager at the Bali Kai. The one issue we faced when buying the condo. Do you purchase a unit that is away from the water on a quiet street or go for the fantastic ocean fronts views 20 feet away from the condo. We choose the ocean views and normally the sounds of the waves drowned out any traffic noise you may hear. Mahalo, Mike Watson
