What better way to enjoy Hawaii than having an unobstructed 180 degree view of the Pacific Ocean?

This recently renovated, oceanfront penthouse is located in Kona at the Kona Bali Kai complex. Watch surfers cutting through the waves, turtles gliding in the shallows or whales spouting (in season) from the privacy of your own lanai. With views from both the living and master bedroom, you can relax your days away from the couch or bed. Imagine waking up to the lull of ocean waves at your feet every morning and enjoying sunset dinners on the water’s edge. Truly paradise on the Big Island.

Our condo has been renovated as of 07/2019. The fully-equipped kitchen has brand new stainless steel appliances and cookware, and we also have new furnishings for your enjoyment.

Enjoy the island sun but ready to cool down? Our home also has AC to keep you chill during your stay.*

When you're ready to snooze, relax in comfort in our King bed in the master bedroom or Queen bed in the guest bedroom. Need more sleeping space? Our brand new sleeper sofa pulls out to a queen sized bed.

For your convenience, we also provide a cooler and beach towels to take on your adventures through the Big Island.

This was our first trip to the Big Island and four days was not nearly enough time to experience all it had to offer. The condo was nicely updated and provided the most incredible views of the ocean and sunsets. Pictures do not do justice to the views from the balcony. Owners were very responsive to our needs, as was the property manager that stopped out to give us additional towels/bedding. Resort itself is small which allowed for a quiet and relaxing stay. Covered parking was also provided. Mahalo for a wonderful experience. Looking forward to coming back to explore more of the island.

Condo is clean, comfortable and up to date. View is spectacular with surfers out there every morning. It’s also away from the crowds in Kailua-Kona but close enough for an easy drive to restaurants and shopping. Really nice!

I can’t say enough how much we enjoyed our stay at this condo! First and foremost— the view!! It was so peaceful to wake up to the sound of the ocean or come back from a long day out to have a mai tai on the balcony. The pictures just don’t do it justice. Secondly, the balcony allowed for maximum privacy so you didn’t have to deal with any neighbors next door or large groups on the sand below. Overall, the interior was clean and nicely furnished — having the AC was a must, even for early May! If we come back to Kona, there’s no doubt that we’d love to stay here again.

The unit has excellent view of the beach front, very beautiful even better than the pictures on the website. The location was very convenient, well maintained and clean. I miss falling asleep with the sound of the waves. We will definitely stay here again when we are in Big Island.

A perfect place in Kona! The views from the lanai cannot be beat and the location made our stay so easy. There’s even an amazing poke place on property! The owners have thoughtfully included all the things we needed: beach chairs, towels, snorkeling gear, boogie boards and even a beach bag! Quiet and comfortable for a great stay! Thank you!

We had a wonderful stay at this property! The views can’t be beat! We saw whales from our balcony and watched the most gorgeous sunsets every night! The rocks along the beach behind the condo had lots of sea life in them, including sea turtles! It was so fun to explore that every day. The condo itself was beautiful and we enjoyed sleeping with the sliding doors open every night to hear the surf. Highly recommend!

The furniture was comfortable, and the kitchen was well equipped. We slept well in the king bed. The lanai was big enough to enjoy and although the waves were loud the sliding doors kept out most of the sound if you want quiet.

We stayed in the Penthouse. The views are stunning from the Laini. You have a sandy beach access right below the units, so you can dip your toes in or just soak up that beautiful Hawaii sunshine.

Absolutely loved our stay at Stephanie's condo. She was incredible as far as quick responses and communication. Very helpful as a host. The property is gorgeous. Updated from top to bottom. Beautiful all around. AC unit kept us nice and comfortable after a long day in the sun. The glass door opens up to the lanai that gives you a gorgeous view over the ocean. Sleeping while hearing the waves crash right behind you was so relaxing. Couldn't have picked a better stay on the Big Island. If you're considering a visit to the island you should definitely be looking at staying here.

Beautiful condo with everything you may need. The view is unbelievable! You can lay in bed and watch surfers. We also spotted dolphins from the lanai! Great location, very peaceful ❤️we would definitely stay here again.

Nicely updated and furnished, conveniently located, and thoughtfully well-equipped, the condo was just right for my solo retreat on the Big Island. The view from the 4th floor is breathtaking, and the property grounds are very well-maintained. Being able to watch the sunset sitting on the rocks at the water's edge (or from the lanai) with the sound of the surf was perfection. Mahalo to Stephanie and Steven, who were very responsive to inquiries.

The condo is updated and homey. The master bed was very comfortable. The view from the lanai is amazing! I spent most of my time watching the early morning surfers and the awesome sunsets.

This unit is everything it is advertised to be and more. Upgraded. Great layout. Kitchen with plentiful accessories. And Oceanside lanai that is hard to beat! The sound of the ocean fills the unit and provides a true haven away from it all. Close enough to town but far enough away to feel like you have your own slice of paradise. Highly recommend.

Great spot that is neither too far from town nor in the thick of it. Made a nice base camp for exploring the island.

The views were amazing and the location was great. The beds were very comfortable and the condo had everything we needed. We really enjoyed our stay. The only negative is that my kids were charged extra to stay. Even though the capacity is over 5 people, the owner charges extra for additional guests if you have over two people, which I thought was odd. I've rented a lot of other sites and this was the first time I encountered this. The additional cost bumped up the cost of the condo significantly.

The place is great! It has the most beautiful ocean view, close to everything but far enough out to be quite and peaceful! Decorated beautifully and the air conditioning was a definite plus for us! Host were great to communicate with and very nice! Our family had 3 rooms rented and by far this was the nicest!! I would highly recommend this condo to anyone!!

Excellent location on Ali’i Drive just south of Kona town. Fabulous oceanfront location on the top floor with a highly private huge lanai. The condo is well-equipped for cooking if you choose to and for beach trips. Ample ceiling fans as well as AC that we opted not to use in early April. Enjoy the natural breezes and the sound of the oceans. Community grills in the property and ample parking. Super stay!

Our stay in Kona Bali Kai was a delight from beginning to end! Communicating with and getting feedback from the owners as we prepared for our stay answered our questions well before we arrived and we felt right at home in the condo as soon as we opened the door. The condo was comfortable, and stocked with many extras like a small cooler and a beach bag along with great kitchen supplies and plenty of towels. And the view from the lanai was gorgeous!! Sleeping to the sound of the sea after exploring the island or sitting on the beach all day was heavenly. We’d love to return!

Spent a lot of time on the balcony! Great view- saw whales and dolphins from afar. This condo had everything we needed and more- appreciated all of the beach accessories! Lovely condo- definitely recommend!

First and foremost, the owner of the condo was in communication from the start confirming all required documents concerning COVID-19 had been submitted and approved by the state of Hawaii. The owner sincerely wants guests to fully enjoy their stay in Kona, Hawaii. The condo is very lovely and the ocean right outside the door is very relaxing. I enjoyed my stay and would rent this condo again.

This place is stunning! You feel immediately comfortable & right at home! The view is breath taking! I enjoyed my coffee & morning meditation on the lanai. My husband loved sitting out there in the evening reading his book, listening to the waves! The kids loved it so much!! They provide things you need for the beach as well as a full kitchen! That was so helpful as this was our first trip! Our flights got canceled due to bad weather and stephanie and her husband were willing to work with us and I thought that spoke 1000 words about them. Thank you for making our trip so amazing! We will definitely be back!

This condo was perfectly appointed with everything we needed for our almost 2 week stay. Last time we visited the Big Island, we stayed at a resort in the Waikoloa Village area. It was also beautiful, but very remote from town. This condo is close enough to the action without being too close. We sat on the lanai every night and enjoyed fantastic sunsets and had privacy from the other units and the small beach area below. The unit is directly in the middle which gives you the 'closest to the water' of all units and furthest 'out' from other units so the most privacy. Also closest to the elevators for all your luggage and shopping purchases. Kitchen was well stocked and we were able to cook and bring lunches with us when we were heading out around the island. Recent renovations on the condo are very welcome and everything was done well. Air conditioning that was installed is powerful enough for the unit and kept us cool if we were out at the beach all day and needed a heat break. Pool area was nice and never overly crowded. Communication with owner/manager of unit was very prompt and they were especially helpful with our stay. Overall I would absolutely stay here again and recommend my friends/family to this unit.

November 2021
The view was awesome and the sound of the ocean right outside made the visit so relaxing. Having the AC was great in the afternoon when it was warm but most of the time the windows and ceiling fans were enough. Well accommodated until, excellent instructions and great communication!

Stephanie and Steven are very gracious and responsive hosts. The apartment itself is tastefully designed facing the close up Pacific Ocean. We felt very comfortable and relaxed during our two week stay. The apartment has all the amenities needed for cooking and is also well equipped with beach equipment. The apartment is as close as one can get to the Pacific Ocean. The beach below our lanai is a great place for exploring the tide pools and for watching the sunset, and the nearby surfers. We spent a lot of time relaxing on the lanai eating meals and enjoying the view and the sounds of the ocean. Having a washer/dryer in the apartment was very helpful and convenient. We highly recommend this very popular unit to families and to couples.

This was a perfect place for our family of four. The location cannot be beat - right on the ocean in Kona, not far from the downtown. The property was very clean and had everything we needed, including beach gear that we had expected to have to rent, like some snorkels and beach umbrellas. Stephanie was a great hostess who responded so quickly to messages. The lanai was fabulous and we spent all of our time out there. The little beachy/grassy area outside the building is a fabulous place to watch the sunset. We will rent this property again if we are ever lucky enough to come back here.

Beautiful, comfortable condo with 180degree view of the Pacific!! We are celebrating our 51st anniversary and have never stayed in a place we have liked more. We spent many many hours on the relaxing lanai, feeling it difficult to leave! Thank you to our hosts for sharing your spot in paradise.

One of the best places we have ever stayed. Amazing view of the ocean, lovely decor and very comfortable. Felt like a fancy hotel with 3 times the space. Our kids enjoyed the pool. Would definitely stay here again.

The property was good. The parking is a little confusing and the place is a little tight for 6 persons.. but the overall experience with the apartment was great. The place has great view and sunset experience. It did get a little hot since there wasn't any air conditioning in the rooms. There is a market close by with local shops which is worth a shot.
