This spectacular air-conditioned oceanfront penthouse condo features spacious open beam ceilings and is only 25 feet from the surf crashing on the lava rocks directly below the lanai. Watch surfers launch into the spectacular blue waves of Banyans Beach, one of Kona’s most popular surfing spots. This beautifully remodeled and furnished condo features an oceanfront living room and master bedroom with unparalleled 180 degree ocean views and access to spectacular Kona sea life and sunsets. Your cares dissolve away as warm sun and soothing surf caress your mind and body on the lanai. Enjoy the brilliant blue skies, colorful Hawaiian reef fish, green sea turtles, Humpback whales, spinner dolphins and surfers right from your lanai. In the quiet evening, relax on your lanai and experience the amazing reds and oranges of a spectacular Kona sunset as the huge orb descends into the sea through the softly waving palm fronds. Luxuriate in the master bathroom, walk-in shower and contemporary tile work. The beautiful tile floors throughout, well stocked kitchen with granite countertops and contemporary cabinets and upscale Hawaiian-themed furnishings will make you wish you never had to leave. During the day, slide the 12’-wide doors between the master bedroom and living room aside to enjoy an unrestricted panoramic ocean view from throughout the living area. At night, leave the lanai doors open in the oceanfront master bedroom and living room and be lulled to sleep by the ceaseless caress of the waves on the worn lava rocks below. Gentle ocean breezes keep you cool day and night whether snoozing on the lanai, entertaining friends in your oceanfront paradise or sleeping soundly in your king-size bed.

This place has a wonderful view right on the ocean. From the lanai, we saw morning surfers, several whales on the surface, and sea turtles lazing in the sun. The property is equipped with everything you need for a comfortable Hawaiian vacation. The property manager was very easy to communicate with and efficient. The property was very clean and updated. Parking was simple and restaurants were nearby. Mahalo

This condo has everything you could possibly need for a week in Paradise. The cabinets were well stocked with everything from seasonings, to coffee grinder, to tour books, to laundry supplies, etc., etc., etc. And not to mention the view: UNBELIEVABLE! Every evening on the comfortable lanai, watching the sunset. And in the morning, you can watch the surfers. We were a group of three women, and the fact the 2nd bedroom door wouldn’t close b/c the bed is too long, wasn’t a problem, nor would the open door be a problem for a family. The location is ideal. It’s out of the tourists’ main stream, and there’s handy transportation into town. After touring around and being “in town”, this is a welcomed retreat at the end of a busy day. Very, very comfortable for “chillin’”. And the pool is a lovely addition. I hope we can return! Thnx, Mike!

Our stay was great. The condo is perfectly situated just south of town. It has a spectacular view, right on the ocean with a spacious and well furnished lanai. The unit is roomy, well furnished with many unexpected and useful features, including in the kitchen. Our expectations were met and exceeded Pre visit communication with the owner was easy and timely. Highly recommend and would definitely stay here again. Unit was as the photos displayed

If you dislike the sound of pounding surf, spotting countless whales, sea turtles and surfers from your private balcony, this unit is not for you. This was our 18th trip to the islands and our best. We've never seen so many whales. The calves were very entertaining. Mike was great and just a text or phone call away. Everything was as presented. Highly recommended.

Great condo on 4th floor (penthouse) right on the beach. Surf crashing constantly. Beautiful view especially sunsets.

Our family of 4 spent a wonderful week in the Kona Bali Kai condo. Incredible location close to beaches, shops, restaurants and tours in the area. Mike’s condo is equipped with everything you need to enjoy the best of Kona. Beautiful views of the ocean activities during the day, gorgeous evening sunsets and sleeping to the sound of the waves. Great vacation!

This unit is well cared for and in a beautiful location. The lanai is fabulous - the view is incredible! When the listing says "crashing waves" they are not kidding. You are right at water's edge looking down at the tidepools and hearing the waves. The owners have thoughtfully provided all that you need for your stay - maps and guides, beach towels, umbrellas, and snorkel gear as well. We would definitely book this unit again.

Just as advertised. The provided gear for water play was so appreciated, and the kitchen was well stocked with spices and basics. Whales, dolphins, and turtles seen from the lanai made our mornings so enjoyable!

Great size for a family of four adults. Everything you need in the kitchen, bathrooms and to take to the beach. The view from the lanai is great. Beautiful sunsets.

Very quiet property except for the sound of the waves. So relaxing. We watched the surfers every day from the deck. Very nice kitchen and loaded with all the cooking and eating utensils you’d need. Master bedroom had very comfortable bed. Cable tv and smart tv with your passwords. Ample Parking and great under cover. Condo convenient to grocery stores and restaurants yet quieter than being downtown. Owner good communication. Condo pool not heated and was pretty cold in the mornings. I assume it heated up toward late afternoon. Condo has lots of beach, snorkeling, and flotation equipment. Condo had everything for staying extended time. Could have used more bathroom towels. We had to wash towels more than we wanted. We would definitely stay here again. It was worth the money.

What an amazing spot. Crashing waves and the best views ever. House is really nicely stocked. We’re ready to go back already :)


Gabi R.

We absolutely loved our stay at Mike’s condo. The lanai looks out on surfers and those gorgeous Kona sunsets, and you can watch the turtles right from the balcony. The condo is about 2.5 miles from town, so not walkable, but easily accessible by car. The AC works great; kept the place cool during some rather warm days. We would definitely stay here again.

Lovely little neighborhood, near markets and sightseeing, right on the water, beautiful sunsets. Hawaii baby!


Sandra S.

Very convenient and comfortable condo that lives up to the listing. Right on the water, and the surf sounds were nature's back drop; the lanai was our favorite spot. Well stocked kitchen with all you need to cook your meals. Full sized washer and drier were very appreciated. Easy and responsive communication from owner. We can't wait to return!

From the easy check in to check out, this is a very nice property for your vacation. As far as amenities, this owner has really thought of everything. The view from the lanai is sensational and you can watch the surfers from dawn to dusk. Mahalo for the memorable experience!

Although this is an older building complex with few amenities, it met our family’s needs quite nicely. The unit was clean and well-stocked with everything we needed for a beach stay, including chairs, snorkel gear, beach towels and coolers. The decor was very nice and the lanai was the star of the show. The owner was super responsive to all our questions and needs. We never used the pool once as the ocean was right there. Our last day was best when a large turtle swam right up to the kids near shore!

September 2023
We loved the condo. It was beautiful. Beds were comfortable. Kitchen well stocked. Wash/Dryer was a bonus. Great to wash the beach towels each night and have them ready each morning for a new adventure. Had no complaints other than the humidity seems to be rusting out the lock. The key was a little tricky to use. Keyless entry pad would have been nice. We would stay here again. We had a great week and couldn't ask for a better view. Mike was a great host and sent lots of information about the island before we arrived. That was a big help.


Anita P.
September 2023
We enjoyed our stay so much and hope to return. We took advantage of the lovely lanai where we were just above the ocean. It was wonderful to watch the resident sea turtle in the water below and the water was so clear you could see yellow fish (possibly tangs?) in the water below. The unit was clean and had everything we could have asked for. The bed was comfortable as was the living room furniture. The complex was quiet and friendly. The onsite pool sparkling. No problem parking. Mike, the owner, gave so many references and recommendations in a binder. He also emails you info before the trip so you can have time to plan activities. We swam at the nearby magic sands beach, which was one of the beaches Mike recommended. The kitchen was fully stocked with utensils, including BBQ equipment. If you want a homey vacation by the ocean, watching the sunset from your lanai every evening, this is your pick of condos!

Right on the ocean! You could throw a stone in from the room if you wanted. The waves seemed gentle but were surprisingly loud. The air conditioner was a life saver during our warm August visit. Quality water gear to borrow. We saw a turtle just out front. We loved it. No EV charging.


Teresa R.
August 2023
A great time. Great amenities and wonderful view from lanai. Had toiletries so that was much appreciated. Beach gear was very nice to have. The sunsets can’t be beat. Good communication with owner. Lots of great info provided about what to do and eat. Would stay again!

Had a blast watching sunsets and using this condo as home base for our activities on the big island. The BBQ grill came in handy and we enjoyed watching the surfers each day.

I love love love this place. The owner Mile was wondering and extremely nice. We stayed at his place for 3 night and it was the most beautiful place . We got to see gorgeous sunsets and sleep to the sound of the ocean waves. The place is so close to everything. I would definitely stay here again . Thank you Mike for letting us stay and you wonderful place.

Our first trip to Hawaii was absolutely perfect during our stay in this fantastic home. Everything was very clean, welcoming, and beautiful. The view from the balcony was undescribable!! We could see the waves breaking on shore!! So relaxing!! Also, with our binoculars, we were able to see many dolphins playing, a variety of colorful fish, and a cute sea turtle! The beds were very comfortable giving us a perfect night's sleep throughout our entire stay!! Thank you very much for letting us stay in your beautiful home. Mahalo!



May 2023
This was such an easy process. This rental was easy to find, easy to enter, easy parking, FULLY stocked, and very clean. We loved watching sunsets in the evening and eating meals on outdoor.l table There was an ac but at times it still felt a bit warm. Besides that, everything else was so well thought out and prepared. The location was so convenient for snorkeling all along the coast. We especially loved 2 step beach. We had a great stay!!


Mark J.

Great 4th floor condo. Very clean. Owner was over the top responsive. Nothing but good things to say about experiance. Had a minor issue that was resolved to our satisfaction. Again. The view was fabulous. Location at the heart of everything. Surfers were using the rocks as a launch point and were fun to watch.

Watching the waves, marine life and sunsets and hearing the waves throughout the unit was awesome.



April 2023
Staying at Mike’s well appointed condo with its spectacular view was the highlight of our stay. It had everything we needed — sensible layout, air conditioning, lots of fans, incredible oceanfront view overlooking the sunset, washer and dryer, TV with casting, access to pool and hot tub, access to oceanfront picnic table and BBQ, and parking. It was super helpful that he also had snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, reef shoes, beach umbrellas, beach chairs, and everything we needed to enjoy the beach as a family. The beds were also super comfortable, and the kitchen was well stocked. The laundry room even had the same scent free detergent we use at home. We felt right at home. I did have a couple of questions for Mike during our stay, and he was always extremely responsive. Honestly, the place couldn’t have been better, and it really enhanced our stay. Perfect for our family of 4. We would definitely stay again!

The owner, Mike was awesome. Super responsive to all our questions. He has created a homey, very comfortable place to enjoy the view and beauty of Kona. The complex and unit are older but well maintained , the people are great and the owner has done significant upgrades to make this cozy place very enjoyable. We saw whales, turtles and yellow tang right from our lanai.

We absolutely loved this place! It was probably the most well-stocked condo I have ever rented. It was my boyfriend and I and my two kiddos (ages 5 and 7). Plenty of room, air conditioned, best view in town, tide pools at the beach on site, close to everything in Kona, friendly condo patrons, great pool with plenty of shade and sun depending on what you’re looking for. Absolutely perfect family vacation - we will return! Thank you so much to the owner - made it smooth and easy with lots of suggestions and helpful information about what to do in Kona. I cannot rate this place high enough. If you’re looking for a family getaway in Kona, this is the place for you. Until next time, Mahalo! :)

Host was very responsive and organized. Awesome view. Second bedroom tends to stay warm even with AC in living room.

We enjoyed the condo—it was cute and comfortable. The highlight was the large lanai which is where we watched the sunset in the evenings and the turtles and fish in the morning.


Stacy B.
January 2023
The view from the lanai was spectacular! We saw humpback whales, sea turtles, a huge variety of sea life and not to mention the breathtaking sunsets all from our lanai. Inside the unit was super clean and stocked with everything we needed including the sound of the breaking waves.


Craine R.
January 2023
Loved our stay here. There was everything we could possibly need for a week. We were very impressed with how nice it was compared to the place the rest of our family stayed. We had everything we could possibly need for a week long stay already in the condo. And the sounds of the ocean waves crashing every night was an amazing way to fall asleep!


Laurie H.
December 2022
Truly enjoyed our stay in this condo. Easy access, great views of the ocean and surfers right out our lanai Kitchen well equipped with what we needed to prepare meals. Nice supply of boogie boards, snorkeling equipment, beach towels and even a cooler! Mike was an awesome host and fast response with communication. I use the trolley for one trip to and from town which really worked out well. It’s free and comes right past the complex


Scott M.
December 2022
We really enjoyed our stay. The location is prefect. Especially if you like hearing the waves crashing at night. I think the only downside would be if you were to be in the front bedroom because it had noticeable street noise. The owners have just about everything you could possibly need. We loved our stay and would recommend it.


Lawrence M.
December 2022
This was our third visit to Kona Bali Kai. We love the property. Mike was great communicating with us and was very accommodating. His unit was very clean and exceeded our expectations. The unit was very well stocked with what a family would need for long or short term stays. I’ll be bringing my family back another day, for sure. Thank you for sharing your home with us. We had a wonderful and restful time there. Mahalo.


Michael M.
December 2022
The view is amazing and really enjoyed watching the sunset from the lanai. We had a miscommunication on the check-in and Mike responded immediately to make sure everything was resolved. Mike provides everything you need for a great vacation, snorkeling gear, boogie boards, coolers, beach towels, and a comprehensive list of recommendations for restaurants and activities.

We really enjoyed staying at Mike's place. We were blown away by the view from the living room and master bedroom the moment we entered the condo. The condo is really well stocked with everything from cooking/eating utensils, first aid kit, to snorkeling gears, all thoughtfully stored and labeled. The location is very convenient, 10-15 minutes to great restaurants, snorkeling spots and other attractions. We've visited big island several times, and this is the best place that we've stayed so far.


Angela B.

We began our 2 week family vacation at Bali Kai... what a beautiful way to do it. The ocean waves spoke to us all day, lulled us to sleep at night and harmoniously woke us up every morning. The unit had everything we required for cooking wonderful meals. Mahalo Mike.

Our 1 week stay was amazing. We thoroughly enjoyed every minute. The view is phenomenal. Pictures do not do it justice. My daughters and I spent early mornings on the lanai reading and doing puzzles while watching the surfers. We watched yellow tangs and turtles swim during the late morning/early afternoon. Hearing the waves 24/7 is such a treat. The condo felt like home. There were all of the amenities that you could ever want including snorkel gear, boogie boards, water shoes for the beach. The kitchen was fully stocked. We enjoyed the pool and Da Poke Shack that were on site. It was fun to explore the tide pools. Mike was the perfect host and he called the first day we checked in. We didn’t need his assistance but I’m sure he would’ve been readily available if we needed anything. Next time we come to the Big Island I will definitely try to stay here again.


Gina P.
August 2022
This condo was very well stocked with all the essentials and then some! Every time we'd think of something we needed, we could easily find it in the home! It had all the comforts of home with a fantastic view! The owner's info upon booking was also such a bonus when planning our trip - it made planning our stay on the Big Island so much easier. We especially loved the great snorkeling nearby (and provided equipment) as well as the best poke on the island right on site. Thanks for sharing your home with us!

We loved our stay! Mike worked with us from day 1 to make adjustments and be sure everything went smoothly. There was plenty of room for my family, and the view was excellent. My boys loved exploring the tide pools by the unit, as they were filled with fish and other creatures. The location was convenient to everything, and the rental was well stocked with supplies. All around highly recommended!


Bob S.

My family and I rented this property so we could all get together as a family after COVID-19! I found the property on VRBO and immediately emailed Mike (owner) to check on dates. Mike responded very quickly and I sent him a deposit. Once we arrived at the Condo we were very pleased as to how spacious it was and most importantly the view of the Pacific Ocean from the land! Outstanding! There was a nice on shore breeze filling the Condo with cool air! It was like this all week! The Condo is ready to go! Grab some food and your personal effects and enjoy your stay! Mahalo Mike for the use of your Condo! -Bob

Comfortable, well-equipped, and clean condo with the wonderful sound of the waves as background. Loved the recliners! Great location too!!

Not one thing, maybe one ( no pizza cutter -lol!) Absolute attention to detail -wether choosing indoors or out! All beach supply needs met!! Place is spotless , comfortable and love the kitchen!! Quality comfortable beach furnishings again thoughtfully set up to meet ALL needs . The ocean views are great, the breeze and sound of the waves will lull you to sleep at night. I did not want to leave - even spent an afternoon watching yellow fish while beach “snorkeling “ with the condo binoculars . Close to great activities, quaint shops and a trolley picks you up in front of complex with drop off across the street! This place was set up better than any VRBO I stayed at.


Eric B.
April 2022
I can still hear the waves crashing on the beach.... my family and I have an amazing trip on the Big Island and the condo was a wonderful home base!


Mike H.
March 2022
Had such an awesome stay. Mike provided a lot of information that helped us out on things to do while there. His property had a lot of amenities for our convenience. Snorkel gears and beach chairs, cooler bags, brita water filter, laundry detergents, kitchen appliances and so many more. Mike was very communicative and understanding of our needs. The property was located in a very central spot where things were very easy to access. Id definitely stay again in the future and recommend the place for others. Thanks mike

Fabulous location. Fall asleep to the sound of the surf. Well equipped for whatever you want to do. Near the town, but far enough away to be less congested. If we ever came back, would definitely stay here again. Mike is very responsive. Bob and Janet


Matthias J.

We loved our short stay at your condo. During our 2 week stay, we ended up staying in four different locations. This was our favorite by far. I love the view from the lanai right over the ocean and reef. You can eat breakfast, watching the surfers. There’s nothing like falling asleep to the surf of the ocean. Small details like usb chargers on each nightstand make a big difference. The condo comes with everything you need for an extended stay, including coolers, bags, boogie boards, etc. we loved it.


Barbara F.
February 2022
Fantastic stay! The unit had everything you would ever need! Beach gear, BBQ utensils, plenty of supplies. The pictures are very accurate. The unit was very clean Mike was great.

Have been coming to the islands for 40 years, staying in the whole gamut of hotels, timeshares, VRBO, friends house etc. Have avoided Alii Drive locations for several years because of congestion and noise, rundown condos, mainly staying up the hill in Kona house or Waikoloa or Waikoloa Village. This unit’s 4th floor ocean front position is incredible. Large patio that is protected from direct sun till late afternoon allows looking down at the fish, turtles, dolphins and occasional whales. We didn’t leave the unit for 2 days. Also very private. Unit not Waikoloa “luxurious”, but very clean, well equipped, ac mini split that we used in the afternoons. Large sliding doors allow panoramic view as well as listening to waves at night. Owner very responsive and personable We will return for 2 weeks stays in future

I stayed at Mike's house for two nights and I am completely blown away by this place. Here are the reasons why. 1. You will see one of the most stunning sunsets right from the balcony, pictures available on the listing do not do much of justice to what you see with your own eyes from the balcony. 2. Little beach downstairs is perfect for a quick dip. 3. Attention to detail is just superlative! I was able to find lots of books for my little one, board games for the family, etc. Mike also had plastic bowls which makes sense for people traveling with toddlers. 4. Kitchen was stacked with each and every utensil as well as cooking goods! I would definitely recommend Mike's place to anyone visiting Kona.

This property is a true gem…spectacular views of the ocean and surf. Conveniently located near Kona, you have access to the amenities of the town and easy access to Volcanos National Park (about 90 miles away). The unit is incredibly well equipped with everything you need to enjoy your time on the Big Island. It is air conditioned which is very nice since many island rentals are not. There is a washer and dryer as well which allows you to pack light. The directions were detailed and accurate; easy check in. We highly recommend this wonderful property and enjoyed our time on the island.

Upon arrival we were so pleased to see not only the condo was very clean but there was 2 entrances to the lani. One from the living and the master bedroom. We loved waking up to the noise of the ocean. The kitchen was adequately stocked with all the things we could need for utensils and cooking. The cooler and snorkel gear came in handy to have to take to the beach. The quality of the washer and dryer were newer. Overall the location was just far away from the noise of town but close enough to be ther in a few minute car ride. Highly recommend going to the Farmers Market to get local grown veggies and fruit. You can not go wrong with any of the coffee that is grown locally! Mahalo! 🌺 We will be back!

A luxurious peaceful exquisite stay! The condo was a home away from home experience with completely furnished and stocked as if i was in my own place . The views from the lanai are gorgeous and we loved hearing the waves at night ! An excellent experience and we will be backi! I can’t say enough about this wonderful clean and welcoming condo experience

From start to finish this was one of the best private condos we have ever had the pleasure of renting. Excellent in every way. Clean, extremely well appointed, fully stocked from scoop to nuts including beach/ water activity items. And it is directly on the water. 4 th floor offers best views of ocean and beach and surf. Mike Gaudette (the owner) was very helpful with local info, directions and very quick to respond to questions. Can’t say enough good things about this totally relaxing spot.

Mikes place is excellent! Great view from the property, great location, and the unit has lots of extra amenities that many places don’t. Little extras like boogie boards and snorkeling gear make this place unique. Thanks Mike!

What an amazing place. The condo is comfy and has everything you need, and then some! It was the perfect place to come 'home' to every day. The views from the lanai are just beautiful. We enjoyed watch surfers and dolphins with our morning coffee. The bed is super comfortable, and listening to the surf Evey night was just fantastic. Mike was a great host, very detailed in info about the condo and area, and easy to get in touch with. The condo grounds are well kept, and we chatted with the night watchman many times.....super nice guy! Great to be able to explore some tide pools right there! If you want an ocean front place to stay, look no further......you've found paradise.

Wonderful condo overlooking the ocean. Sleep to the lovely sounds of gentle waves lapping at the shore. Easy access to downtown Kona and lots of restaurants. Easy access to lovely beaches and activities. Very well located.

The pictures of this place are great, but don’t even do it justice. This was a perfect spot for our family of 3 (two adults and a teen) for 10 amazing days. The check-in/check-out process is seamless. And the owner provides you with all the information you need to make your stay the exact vacation you want. The view is outstanding every hour of every day. The crashing waves drown out any other noise, so your truly feel like you are in your own paradise at all times. The beds are all comfy, and bathrooms were clean & roomy, with plenty of storage. The kitchen had any and everything we needed. We cooked at home most days so we could enjoy the best views in Kona from the lanai. The location is perfect. Close to town. Any store you might need is just a quick drive away. We did lots of exploring all over the island, but almost always tried to get back to the condo in time to watch the sunset. We all had a ton of fun poking around in the tide pools located just below us, and even enjoyed watching the fish through the crystal clear water from the lanai. We also swam in the pool a few times, which was a nice break. There is so much to do and see right here on the property. We never even turned on the TV. Its a hot time of year, but with all the windows/doors open, and the fans going we stayed comfortable. The option of A/C was nice at night to get the place cooled down for sleeping. Da Poke Shack has delicious poke, just steps away. It’s worth the line, but if you want to skip the line, go when they open at 10ish. If you are thinking about booking your time here… DO IT! You will enjoy every minute you spend at this vacation home.

The unit was well supplied with kitchen supplies which made making meals convenient. Second bedroom was a bit warm due to lack air conditioning getting root when door closed. Other than that, a very comfortable stay.

This place has an amazing view...absolutely perfect. We've stayed in Kona before and generally shopped for 1st floor places. We enjoy walking out our back door. So, I was a little reluctant to select the fourth floor place. Boy, was I wrong. The view from the fourth floor was far better than I realized. We kept commenting how we could see more sea-life and really appreciated the extended view. Combined with the perfectly place palms and a small peninsula that juts into the view...it was a phenomenal "picture-perfect" view. As for the other amenities....the little extras provided were really great. Mike was a great host and communicated well. You can tell that he cares about the customer's satisfaction, which I appreciate. Otherwise, it's a typical 2Br, 2Ba place in a great location. But I'm telling you...the view is amazing! That's what we were hoping for. Our expectations were exceeded.

This was our 6th trip to Hawaii. This property is our favorite on the Big Island. The view is spectacular. The location is great. AC makes a big difference in the Summer on this island. I would highly recommend this property.

Wonderful location and unit with virtually everything you need for a great stay. The smaller bedroom does get very warm but there are two fans to use in there and ceiling fans all over. Follow the owner’s directions for keeping things cool and you won’t need the a/c much at all. The lanai and s the best place to hang out and you really can’t hear any of the neighbors around you so you feel like you really have your own oasis!

For us, I can’t imagine a better located property. It was a good balance between distance from tourist and proximity to all the attractions. There wasn’t anything more relaxing than falling asleep and waking up to the sounds of the ocean. The seamless process of checking in to checking out is self explanatory and easy. The owner gave us a courtesy call later in our stay to ensure the everything was as expected (which it was!); Mike is very easy to talk to. Overall, very satisfied and definitely plan to stay here again.
