|Minimum Stay||7 - 10 nights|
This newly remodeled condo invites you to relax in comfortable settings. Relax on the lanai and feel the warm ocean breeze or cool down in the air-conditioned unit featuring a flat-screen HDTV and stereo for entertainment. For our guests who love to be in the kitchen, you will appreciate the new Whirlpool appliances, such as the glass-top stove and side-by-side refrigerator/freezer.
Take a stroll around the complex, and you will find the pool, jacuzzi, and BBQ area right on the beach. This beach area is also a beautiful location to watch whales on their migration path during the winter months, and throughout the year, keep your eye out for sea turtles that come onto shore to enjoy the sun. Venture out of the complex, and a few minutes walk will take you to Magic Sands, a popular beach for swimming and body boarding. We invite you to let Kona Bali Kai be a memorable part of your Big Island vacation.

It was centrally located and well maintained. It is clean, modern and has all of the amenities you need. This includes a closet stocked full of boogie boards, beach towels, chairs and a cooler. The washer and dryer allowed us to be able to only pack carry-on luggage so that was an added bonus. Our only slight criticisms would be the shower switched between hot and cool and the kitchen does not have any cooking oil or basic condiments, so make sure you stock up on whatever you need at the grocery store before hand. The view from the balcony is onto the busy Ali'i Drive, but the pool and hot tub across the street are easy to access, as is the BBQ/picnic area on the beach. Go across the street if you can and hang out there, it is lovely. Thank you again for a wonderful stay. Mahalo!
The condo was well furnished in very nice island heavy rattan style. Husband and I felt very at home there. The Queen bed is quite comfortable and it has drawers below so you can store everything to keep the unit neat. Great little kitchen fully stocked. No dishwasher but who cares when you are on vacation? The unit is very well located near old town Kilua and the best snorkel beach down south about a mile. Fantastic. This convenient 1st floor unit is close to the parking area and a bbq. There are bbq's and lounge chairs across the street on the beach front where you can take dinner or a few drinks and enjoy the sunset every night about 6pm. The owners provided ice chests, beach towels and beach chairs as well. The lanai faces the street so there is traffic but we sort of did not mind. Just had another rum & ? or walked across to listen to the ocean. Costco, Walmart, Safeway etc are about a mile from the condo so we found it easy to shop. The unit was very clean, cute, and relaxing. The price was excellent so that overrides the traffic issue plus there is a small view of the ocean crashing on the lava shore that was very nice to wake up to. We slept with the patio door open all night. On Sunday morning we heard beautiful harmonic songs floating our way from the church of The Living Stones. One of the exceptional things we did was take a Mt. Kileuea tour with Hawaii Forest & Trail Company. They will pick you up at the bus stop out front of the condos. Well worth the money and time. The tour guide was a native Hawaiian and shared both science and Hawaiian legends and culture of the big island throughout the day. Take the tour and stay in this condo. Excellent value and location. We stayed 9 days beginning of February during Humpback whale calving and green sea turtle mating season so loved those treats as well. We will return to this condo in Kona Bali Kai property. I tossed my lei into the surf and made a wish before departing ( Hawaiian tradition).Did not want to leave. Mahalo to the owners for a great spot to stay!! Many Alohas
This studio is exactly as described and really nice. The bed was comfortable and the so was the hide a bed. We had friends stay one night with us and they said that it was the most comfortable hide a bed they had ever slept on. Two things that were disappointing were that the lanai was facing the street and was pretty noisy with the traffic so hard for us to enjoy using it. Also the pool area is very small and is in the interior of the complex so it doesn't get much sun. But the beach area is perfect. We saw turtles every day and enjoyed watching the surfers at the beach next door. There is a great church next door, Living Stone that we visited both Sundays and really enjoyed the service outside. The kitchen is small, but very well-equipped. However we didn't much cooking so if met our needs. The condo is a nice walking distance to the restaurants and shopping and there are alot of wlakers out on Ali'i Drive. We would recommend Bongo Ben's, Humpy's and any place that serves Tropical Dreams ice cream. Humpy's happy hour special is $2.00 off any drink, even soda, and any food ordered from 4-6 p.m. We loved our time in Kona and will definitely be back. Thanks again.
We absolutely loved our 2 week stay and cannot wait to get back. The condo was exactly as listed! First class and quality throughout! Exceptionally clean! Paul, the Property Manager was terrific, able to answer all our questions. We loved the location, just a little way from all attractions and restaurants. Very quiet at night, parking for your rental vehicle, and near a terrific market garden! We would absolutely recommend the condo to our friends!
Aloha! My wife and I just spent 10 days at the condo. The owners did a great job remodeling the unit. Everything is new/well done and looks as good as/better than the pictures. The guy at the management company (Paul) was very pleasant and helpful. The pros are too many to mention. I'll just say that in addition to all the things that are normally expected/provided we were really happy to find a few beach towels, a couple of great beach chairs, a small cooler and a couple of boogie boards. The only cons I can force myself to think of are 1) the lanai is facing and is about 30 feet from Ali'i Drive (lots of traffic from 7am to about 10:30pm) 2) the ocean view is obstructed by the apartment building across the street 3) walking to the area where most restaurants/bars for tourists takes about an hour; I think the rental price fully reflects/compensates for that. We enjoyed staying at this place. Mahalo to the owners!!!
Newly renovated, exactly as the pictures show. Very clean! I will stay here again. We had a wonderful time. Parking was great. Easy access to beaches. Partial ocean view was great. Many turtles seen at this beach.
