Beautiful Kona, right on the water!
Right on the water, right on the price. This all you'll need for a fantastic Kona getaway. The condo is complete with stunning views of the water below and incredible sunsets. Turtles play in the water and even sit on the rocks just a few steps from the building. Amazing! You have a full kitchen, BBQs by the water, Air Conditioner and a fully appointed room to make you feel right at home. Nice pool, hot tub and even Da Poke Shack! This will be your favorite Hawaiian destination just like it is for us.
Thanks Mike. It is so great to have you and Myria as a guests. I love it when my guests love my condo as much as I do. I want to make sure that guests have as much as I can provide when there so I furnish things that make your stay much more comfortable like laundry soap, coffee filters, dishwasher detergent, etc. I want my guests to feel like its also their home away from home, and I have many guests returning yearly because of that. You are one of them and it is much appreciated.
Waves, waves waves!
We stayed during the "King Tides" but I doubt there would be a difference in a regular tide. Slept with doors to the lanai open and they lulled us to sleep each night. We had the 2 bedroom option and there are always the 2 baths and that made it very comfortable. Unit is about 800 square feet plus the lanai so we all had plenty of space. Downsides: the air conditioner is small and underpowered so we would come back to the unit and have to open all the windows and turn the fans on to cool it. The closing of the place so the corrosive salt from the spray means the air when you walk in can be pretty stale. We bought 2 solid air fresheners and that helped a lot. We knew the pool would be un-useable while we were there but the stay corresponded to the time they were jack-hammering so it was pretty loud at times. But the place was well appointed, the king sized bed was HEAVENLY (this is very important to my 6'2" husband) and we will always remember the waves! Location was great for exploring the West side of the island. In 6 days we put almost 500 miles on the rental car driving. People are very friendly on the Island - much more of a community than on the busier islands. Recommendations: Kozy's Comedy and Magic show in Kohala and dinner at the Blue Room next door (the show was a small venue close up magic and blew our minds), The VNP tour of Volcanos by Night with Essential Hawaii Tours was pricey but the experience including a wonderful dinner at The Rim of the volcano was our second favorite thing (waves being number 1). We had Marcus as our guide and his "day job" is high school science teacher so we learned so much about the flora/fauna/geography and people. The stops at the coffee plantations, the bakery down by South Point that is heavily advertised was delicious and also included (try the custard filled malasadas!). We enjoyed the Ride the Rim tour in a buggy. Had a guide with us that way to hear about the area, the history and life on the island. Really nice young people and beautiful views into the valley from the top. The Parker Ranch story told at the HQ in Waimea was fascinating and the food and drink at Big Island Brewhaus was some of the best food we had on the island at any price. Beer and cane sugar root beer was OUTSTANDING. Regrets of not seeing Hilo or exploring any beaches, but we felt more "local" than tourist. Oh - and go down for breakfast at Big Robs in Captain Cook. Eat a Chicken Fried steak breakfast!!
Thanks so much for sharing the favorite things you did. Many I have not done and your description made me want to do it too!
Thanks and I am so glad you enjoyed your stay. Liane
Beautiful views from the lanai where we spent most of our time!
The views from the lanai are sublime! Direct ocean front with sunsets every night!
This is a nice condo with a full kitchen that is well stocked. It has 2 bedrooms and two baths. The master bedroom has a beautiful ocean views, a sliding door to the lanai and an air conditioner. The lanai is large and has a table and chairs as well as two chaise lounge chairs. The property is maintained well, has easy parking and a BBQ. Downtown is close and easy to get to. We would definitely consider this location again if we come back to Kona!
Location, location, location. Incredible location, amazing views and sounds you can't get any closer to the shore. Great place, we loved our stay and will go back again - what more can you say!
Loved our stay here!
This was our first visit to the Big Island, and we spent a week here celebrating my birthday. We're not exactly the resort variety, and we like to immerse ourselves in the local culture. With that in mind, we found this place to be perfect in that aspect.
Our favorite things about the unit:
- As was mentioned in the other reviews, the large lanai. We spent most of our mornings and evenings here enjoying the view and the sounds of the surf. The lanai overlooks the famous Banyan Beach surf spot, and we enjoyed watching the surfers. The view from the living room and bedroom were excellent as well.
- "Da Poke Shack" is right downstairs! This place is consistently ranked as some of the best poke on the Big Island, and it was the first place we ate upon arriving.
- The unit is fully stocked (especially the kitchen). We're "foodies" so we didn't spend much time preparing food here. However, there were a few occasions where we made breakfast, as well as some fresh Kona coffee (there is a grinder and coffee maker), and we found everything we needed. We could have just as easily prepared food here all week with how well stocked it was. We also found the washer/dryer very useful as well as the laundry basket.
- The free Wifi.
- The air conditioner in the bedroom. We stayed here at the end of July, so there were a few nights we ran it when it was especially hot/humid. As somewhat of a side note, I believe somebody in another review mentioned it was on a 2 hour timer. It is actually a 12 hour one.
- The Big Island Revealed book under the coffee table (among the many other useful guide books). This especially helped us with our exploration of the island.
- The ample parking.
A couple of other notes:
- As a friendly note to future renters, the ceiling fans in the bedrooms are on speed switches with a scale of 0-4 (with 0 being off). In the excitement of everything, we set it at 4 the first night thinking this was the fastest setting. They only ran at medium speed though. It didn't occur to us until the next morning that 1 is actually the fastest setting.
- Liane (the owner) was very responsive, helpful and friendly. We will undoubtedly consider her units first when we return to the Big Island. Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one!
This is an amazing place to stay. I hesitate to tell just how great it is because it will make it difficult to get a reservation for this hidden gem. It's in a perfect spot on Kona just a short distance from Kona twin and the shops and restaurants but still just remote enough to feel like Hawaii. The view is spectacular. If you don't like sea turtles or beautiful sunsets than this place is not for you. Haha
My Hawaii Vacation Rental is at the Kona Bali Kai Condo complex, 2 1/2 miles south of the quaint town of Kailua-Kona which has numerous shops and restaurants that line the beach. This is unit 204, but I also have an identical oceanfront VRBO listing #48663 in the same complex. Check that listing number to see if your dates are available, if this unit is booked.
Within walking distance only 1/4 mile north of the condo is Alii Gardens Outdoor Marketplace where you will find local arts and crafts and local farmers produce. Great place for shaved ice!
Right next door to the condo is a well known Banyans surfing beach where local surf, boogie board, long board surf and even do kayak surfing. From sun up to sun down it is fun to watch the surfers from the condo lanai. Two miles south of the condo is Kahaluu Beach Park which is one of the best snorkeling spots on the Big Island. Fed by a fresh water spring, up to 10 million gallons per day. These shallow waters are almost always calm, with colorful corals, rock formations, and 100+ species of fish. Swim with schools of colorful fish & green sea turtles in protected waters; don't forget your underwater camera.
Things to do on the island: Boogie Boarding, surfing, body surfing, ocean swimming, kayaking or kayak surfing, long board surfing, lava tube exploring, hiking to lava and volcano, helicopter rides over flowing lava, horseback riding, luau with local food and dancers, golfing, sunset sailing or dinner cruises, submarine adventure, deep sea fishing, ocean rafting, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving or snorkeling with manta rays...just to name a few.
