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.

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

What's not to like

  • 5 of 5

The property is great, as others have said. Ideal location - close, but not in the midst of the Kona cruise ship craziness. Wonderful view from the bedroom and lanai. But props to Mike for the way he runs the show. Good advice on places to go, to eat, etc. But, as all travelers know, things sometimes aren't perfect. In our case, the TV was on the blink, as was the ceiling fan in the master bedroom. But, before we could even notify Mike, he was on the phone to us! The cleaning service had already informed him of the problem and he had repairs in the works. All was back to normal within a day - not that we missed the tv anyway. Hats off to Mike and his unit at Kona Bali Kia!

Owner's Response: Many thanks for the comments. We are glad you enjoyed the condo and appreciate your understanding about the TV. Luckily my handyman had a spare he could put in the condo, until we installed a new one. We hope to see you again at the condo with the new big screen TV and wonderful ocean views.

Fantastic views

  • 5 of 5

First of all, the communication with the property owner, Mike, was fabulous. Instant response and complete details made this trip very seamless. The views and the climate was very comfortable. We loved listening to the waves and watching the surfers. We explored the tide pools when we had rest time and were greeted by several sea turtle each day. The place was clean (but it is important to clean up

after yourselves too). We used the cooler bag for all of our adventures and the boogie board was an added bonus and Magic Sands beach was nearby we were able to fit that in on our last afternoon for wave action. It was a blast. My only feedback would be if you plan on needing coffee the instant you wake up to buy some before you go to sleep your first night. Everything you need to make the coffee is available in the condo (machine and filters). We enjoyed the nearby restaurants. Suberb stay. Hawaii is just a perfect place.

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.
