Kona Bali Kai 219

As of this writing (Oct 20th) Hawaii finally reopened to tourism without a quarantine (with negative test) on Oct 15th 2020. A negative covid test from an approved supplier within 3 days of arrival and a free rapid test upon arrival will also be required. Sounds like the 2nd test upon arrival at the airport is working well. Our Nov. client from Canada had to cancel due to Covid restrictions. As of this writing we have 10/23 thru 11/20 inclusive available. (Rare opportunity for a close in booking!). Also normally xmas thru New Years is booked a year or more in advance. Our Canadian client recently cancelled due to Covid restrictions so 12/22/20 thru 1/6/21 is currently available (16 nights!). 10 night minimum is normally required between xmas and new years - inquire if you are interested in booking but can't meet the 10 night request!!! The Hawaiian tourism industry has been disseminated due to Covid and we welcome your return. In the unlikely event of the quarantine being reinstated for new bookings we will offer free cancellation (or a new date). Our fully remodeled, top of the line unit (All tile, solid granite counters, newer cabinetry, etc. sits 30' behind the Kona Bali Kai seawall. You can't get any closer to the sea without getting wet. If you want DIRECT Ocean Front, next to the most popular Island surf break in a TOTALLY remodeled/renovated unit at an unbeatable value look no further. The view is world class - it just does not get any better! With our fully remodeled interior our annual occupancy is ~90% so book ahead! Rates are solid thru Dec. 22nd, 2021. Rates are not fixed for dates after this. Call or write if questions. IMPORTANT NOTE: Our 2 night minimum ONLY applies if you book next to an existing booking (Calendar is kept current). Otherwise the normal minimum is 6 nights and 10 nights for xmas-new years and ironman. This is also covered under the notes section at the bottom of the rates area. VRBO software limitations make it difficult to cover this topic other than writing it out. If you book directly for less than our minimum nights AND not next to an existing reservation we will likely ask you to cancel your reservation as our primary marketing is towards longer stays. Kindly Email me if you have any questions. Note: The KBK Pool/Pool Deck area was redone during the summer of 2017. Our 2BR/BA unit completed an $80,000 wall to wall full remodel in early 2014. The 5 star interior is unbeatable with custom Cherry cabinetry, solid granite counters, new windows, new patterned tiled floors and new stainless steel appliances. Unit is continually updated as needed. Total square footage including lanai is about 1,000'. You will notice different unit sizes quoted in KBK adds. To my knowledge all 2BR ocean front units are the same size? Interiors are about 806 square feet + the 200 square feet lanai. Enjoy our full width lanai with new top of the line Pella double glass, low e, Fiberglass sliders adjoining the master bedroom and Greatroom. If the surf noise at night is to loud just use the doors to control the sound level. Entertainment center includes a 40" Samsung TV with cable box to receive Hi Def Programming, radio and dedicated Router for free Wifi. A 2nd, smaller TV with cable box is in the front Bedroom. Each major room has a quality Casablanca All Weather Ceiling Fan to keep you cool along with a newer, 12,000 BTU A/C in the Greatroom for those rare late summer sticky days. Note: The Majority of Ocean Front units @ Kona Bali Kai do not provide AC (its rarely needed!). Summer humidity in Kona is much better (lower) than the east coast of the USA). Note: Air conditioning coverage in the hot summer months (Aug/Sept) is not fully effective on the occasional hot, sticky days in the front bedroom (far end of condo from A/C). However if you set up the supplied portable fan in the Bedroom doorway to interchange air between the great room and the front bedroom it is fine for the vast majority of my clients. Note: We reluctantly placed a 4 hour manual timer on the AC unit - we gave up asking guests to not leave the condo for the day with the A/C on (power in Kona is incredibly expensive). The famous (site of frequent competitions) Banyan Surf Break is just offshore from our unit so you'll enjoy watching the surfers in between checking out the frequent turtle (Honu) visitor in the natural lava pond directly in front of the lanai. Our unit is on the convenient 2nd building level with quick access to free ground level parking, courtyard pool and no steps to apartment if you prefer to use the elevator. Just a narrow strip of lawn separates you from the ocean. The natural lava rock pool in front forces the waves to break out from shore further, reducing the surf noise level, a plus for most. Custom shoji type silhouette sliding glass panels (Unique to Kona Bali Kai) separate the Greatroom from the MBR. The coastline in front of Kona Bali Kai has accessible tide pools and sandy areas - perfect for poking around on a lazy afternoon. Free Oceanfront propane fired outdoor Barbecues with adjacent picnic tables are available for guests. White Sands County Park (Laloa) is 1 mile south, Kahaluu snorkeling beach/bay is 2 miles south and there is a great small hidden beach cove a short walk away I'll tell you about in my client letter after booking. Kona Bali Kai is 3 miles south of the Village of Kailua Kona and 3 miles north of the village of Keauhou. Both offer shopping, groceries, restaurants, cinema's, etc. We live 1 mile south most of the year at an ocean view condo which we managed as a vacation rental for 10 years before retiring and moving to Kona in 2009. We understand how important our guests vacation time is and do our utmost to provide a positive experience. We provide a detailed, exclusive ~20 page guest letter to our clients listing our favorite guide book and information on a host of our favorite beaches, day hikes and snorkel spots to help you with your vacation planning. We also provide tips on how to save Airfare & car rental expenses. Sharon is a part time commercial artist specializing in tropical flower water colors. You will enjoy several examples of her paintings in the condo. Master Bedroom has a king bed with nightstands and chest of drawers; 2nd BR has a queen bed with nightstands, dresser and LCD TV. This is our 2nd Kona Bali Kai Direct Ocean Front Rental. See VRBO listing 329786 for details and pictures of our sister unit a few doors away that sits directly in front of the Banyan's surf break. Both units are currently listed on VRBO.. Note: Unit 305 matches unit 219's layout and size except the layouts are reversed.
