About Mike Watson

The owners enjoy running, swimming and scuba diving. Bird watching, snorkeling, and exploring the tide pools. Simply reading a good book on the lanai also can't be beat. What a great way to finish a hard day at the beach or snorkeling from the kayak... It truly does not get any better than this! Note: The owners are currently working in The Netherlands, but still find time to visit their condo four times a year.

Mike Watson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mike Watson chose Kona Coast

The views and sunsets. The condo is set back 300 feet from Alii Drive so you have no traffic noise. The property is beautifully tropically landscaped and has several nice BBQ areas and picnic tables.

What makes this condo unique

Taking in a good book and soaking in the cool ocean breezes. Mixing up a great meal in the kitchen and fixing Mai Tai's for friends. Enjoying the comforts of a fully furnished, well stocked condo with a huge king size bed. Plus the condo is always well maintained and kept very clean and fresh. There is no place like it anywhere and we know you will love your stay at our condo.

We were happy

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the condo. It is very well stocked. The full size washer/dryer were key as this was the second island we visited during our two weeks in Hawaii and was very convenient. The owners clearly care very much about maintaining a nice place for visitors. The pool was nice, but is in need of some repairs and an upgrade. Signage indicated a new pool deck would be worked on beginning in May, 2017. We would not hesitate to stay there again if we go back to The Big Island.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your comments on the condo. Indeed in mid 2017 the pool at the Kona Bali Kai will be repaired and re plastered and new decking will be installed. We hope to see you again at the condo. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of condo is perfect - away from the busyness of the down town centre but close enough to walk or bike. South of the condo there is a shopping centre with grocery, pharmacy, restaurants, theatre and a great little market on Saturday mornings where we purchased the best banana bread and cookies! The condo itself is very well equipped and a good size for two. We stayed a month and were quite comfortable. It was also very reasonably priced. I would recommend this condo. Thanks Mike, we had the best time!

Perfect place to launch your adventures from

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we needed. Small but perfect for two people, the king bed had plenty of space. Place was clean and well furnished. It is on the main downtown strip so it is perfect for going shopping or to all the different venues that are downtown. Mike was quick to respond to my emails and questions and the room price is very fair. We would stay there again if we come back to visit. Thanks for sharing your condo with us and Aloha

Owner's Response: Aloha and many thanks for the comments. We do our best to keep the condo well equipped and stocked. We provide a dishwasher, full size washer and dryer, microwave, two televisions and a king size bed - this is very rare for a one bedroom condo anywhere in Kona. We hope to see you again at the condo. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Great condo at a fair price

  • 4 of 5

Great fully stocked condo! WiFi, kitchen has all the basics, good size shower (good water pressure! ). Bed could use a new mattress and can't see water from inside the unit. Otherwise perfect for our honeymoon. The condo is located about 3 miles from town, 10 miles from airport, so rental car is a must. Trolley service is $2/ride but comes every 2 hours, bus even less. Great many beach access points and parks within walking distance. Minimart also nearby.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank for your review on the condo. We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay on the Big Island and found the condo to be well stocked. We were a bit surprised about your comment on the mattress as it is only two years old. It is a King size Serta Perfect Sleeper mattress purchased from Costco in 2013. The ocean can also be seen from the lanai. However, we do have three direct ocean front condo's if you would like to stay at one of those on your next visit.

50th Anniversary vacation

  • 5 of 5

My wife and I feel blessed to have discovered this condo in Kailua-Kona. Perfectly situated across from the ocean and extremely quiet and private. The unit is FULLY stocked. We can walk into town when the mood strikes us. I have walked out on the lava rock and taken wonderful pics of the sea turtles in the ocean. The shopping and restaurants are excellent. It has been three weeks and we lack for nothing. Thankful that we still have another three weeks here. Mike and Katrina Watson have left nothing to the imagination. We moved right in and it has felt like home ever since. We will be back for the same period in 2017.

Fantastic Value on a well stocked and nicely furnished 1 bedroom condo

  • 5 of 5

My husband and I were very lucky to have found this condo. The owners were fantastic to deal with! Very responsive in returning emails and phoning us to ensure everything was satisfactory when we arrived at the condo. We stayed two weeks, but wish we would have stayed for two months. The condo has everything you could need - a king size bed, washer and dryer, dishwasher, air conditioner, blender, coolers, beach towels, beach cooler - even a coffee grinder. It had tons of dishes, plates, silverware, glasses, pots and pans. There was a large selection of reference books about the Island and many great mystery novels. We cannot wait to go back next year and spend more time at this wonderful condo.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your review and noticing all the extra touches we have added to the condo to ensure all of our guests have a very relaxing and refreshing stay at the condo. We spend a lot of time at this condo oursleves and ensure it is always in "tip top" condition. Mahalo and look forward to having you back again soon.
