This lovely 4th (top) floor, two bedroom, two bath, bright, clean and oceanfront condo has everything that you'll need for a great vacation, including A/C! (Mini-Split System - not a separate blower in guest bedroom). It's located at the very oceanfront Kona Bali Kai Resort, Bld. 2, and is unit #415, so prime location in the middle section of the oceanfront building at the pool. Nice upgrades throughout with comfortable lounging and sleeping options for four guests. (There are now two lounge chairs on lanai . . photos taken while we waited for 2nd one!) Well equipped kitchen with lots of counterspace for ease of cooking in! Watch the surfers from your lanai, along with plenty of sea life as well! (Dolphins, whales (in season) and the large honus (sea turtles) that feed in the numerous tidepools there and then bask in the sun on the small beaches right out front.
I work with a Turo (online vehicle rental company) representative on the big island for vehicle rentals, and my guests do get a nice discount!! Ask me about details and for the links on Turo.com for his vehicles.

This condo was amazing. Clean as a whistle, comfortable - that recliner is the best! And the views were spectacular from the lanai. Holly was super responsive to our needs and so easy to communicate with. Would definitely recommend this property!

Nice oceanfront condo with great views and A/C. The unit has been remodeled and has a nice kitchen and baths. It has nice towels and plenty of paper products. Great to have the beach chairs, beach towels, ice chests and a washer and dryer. The complex is older and the elevator is slow, but the view from the 4th floor is worth it! We just walked the stairs unless we were carrying too much stuff.

We loved our stay here! Holly is an excellent host. The home literally has everything you need and more to make your stay comfortable. The views from the lanai are outstanding. I loved waking up to the sound of the ocean every morning and enjoying my coffee outside. We were able to keep the doors open for most of the stay and only turn the air on at night when it got stuffy. The front room gets warmer than the rest of the condo, but if you position the 2 fans to draw in some of the cool air, it is ok. My kids never had an issue, but if you are warm natured, it might be better to take the master. Getting around town is fairly easy. There are lots of things to do close by. I highly recommend the outdoor market down the road. Great vendors and lots of souvenir options. We saw turtles and there are lots of sea urchin in the coves below, so always make sure you wear your shoes in the water and keep your distance from the turtles! I would love to come back here one day and hope to stay with Holly again!

This is an awesome property to be close to the ocean and enjoy the view and sounds. Please note that this is not a swimable area but you can still have some sand and dip your toes in the water. The beds are very comfortable. The kitchen is well outfitted! The recliner was well enjoyed. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!

We fully enjoyed our stay at this location. Oceanfront views were priceless. If you like falling asleep to the sound of waves crashing and waking up to a beautiful sunrise every morning, you will enjoy your stay here. Honestly, the only downside to this facility might be that the swimming pool isn’t really ideal for young children who can not swim. There is only a super small portion of the pool where I could touch and I’m 5”10. The Reilly that runs every hour picks up right across the street and it super smooth.

Holly was an excellent host. The condo was exactly as described and photographed. Communication was clear, check in was a breeze, and few treats were waiting for us upon arrival. The view of the ocean was fabulous! Holly couldn’t accommodate a late checkout but helped locate another Vrbo. So grateful for her assistance. Thank you.

Easy check-in, great accommodation. Would return for another stay. Highly recommend. Everything you need is at hand. We’ll outfitted kitchen. Elevator works great. Enjoyed watching the surfers, we called them our entertainment.

Full disclosure - I am a super host for the other popular short term rental app. * Location is the top reason to rent this unit. We've stayed at Kona Bali Kai 3 previous times in different units, and love this complex. The ocean front view is amazing, there is a small beach and tide pools adjacent to the complex so if you just want to sun on the sand in quiet without the crowds or if you have toddlers/young kids who want to play in a safe beach environment, it's unbeatable. Sunsets on all the clear days, and you can watch surfers nearby. Da Poke Shack is in the parking lot of the condo complex and they serve some of the best poke in all of Hawaii, so it's very convenient. One disclaimer is that there are some palm trees in front of the lanai (patio), just as you see in the listing photos, so be aware. The unit is very close to the elevator which is a plus, since it's on the 4th floor. * This condo is very clean. Their housekeeper does an excellent job. I'm very particular about cleanliness of properties and have stayed in many other short term rental houses and condo's, and this one ranks at the top for how clean the home was when we checked in. I have dust allergies so this is very important to me and I was pleasantly surprised. *Full of amenities, very convenient: They provide not only the usual Hawaii condo basics like kitchenware/towels/shampoo/soap/laundry soap, but (when we rented in Apr/May 2022) they have 4 very nice Tommy Bahama beach chairs and two additional simple beach chairs, a very nice Tommy Bahama beach umbrella, 2 ice chests, several beach towels, flash lights (if you go to the volcano you'll need these), 2 sets of snorkel/mask/fins. The Charmin toilet paper is which is nice. They provide plenty of paper towels, tissues, etc. * Their power recliner is SOOO comfortable. * The master king bed is a firm foam mattress. *Holly was an amazing host. She's very responsive, all the time day or night. She's helpful in answering questions, and was very kind to get us a mattress topper for the king bed because I have a medical condition and had trouble sleeping on the firm mattress. She assisted me with some of my other needs for the condo as a result of my medical condition and I was so pleased to have such an excellent and caring host. As a short term rental host myself, I give her top ratings for her availability, communication skills & empathy. *Read 'Hawaii The Big Island Revealed' before you come if you can.

Great location with this property! Cannot go wrong with the sunset views. The property has everything you may need during your stay to include many beach items. We were sad to leave and would love to return to this property in the future.

As all of the other reviews state, this condo is probably the best equipped Vrbo my family if 4 has ever stayed in. And the AC is such a plus! We loved the lanai at every time of the day - gorgeous views. And we saw turtles in the tide-pools out back everyday.

The condo is even better than advertised! The oceanfront lanai is beautifully furnished and wonderful for breakfast, lunch or dinner- not to mention sunset viewing and whale watching! It comes with many amenities, everything one could want in a kitchen, beautiful towels and linens, etc! My husband and I have stayed in VRBOs and other online rentals world-wide, and this is the most well managed! Thank you Holly and your owners! We’ll be back next year! MaryAnn & Bill

We had an excellent stay at our home away from home! The condo was well stocked with everything we needed to have a comfortable and enjoyable stay. Pretty much anything we could think of that we needed was there including snorkel gear, beach chairs, a beach umbrella, and a cooler. The views were great and we would watch the nearby surfers each morning/evening and were even treated to seeing some dolphins one morning! I would highly recommend the condo and will consider staying here again for future visits!

What an incredible property! Holli (property manager) was SO accommodating and made our entire adventure the easiest we’ve ever had. The place was beyond our expectations- from the seamless check-in to the access to anything you could hope for in the way of an ocean-front, condo, to the ease in check-out. We cannot wait to go back!

My husband, a friend and I had a great stay! The oceanfront condo is in such a gorgeous location, a few steps from the ocean with striking views of the water, surfers and palm trees. It was hard to leave the beautiful lanai where we enjoyed one sublime sunset after another. The unit was very clean with new, comfortable furniture and appliances. The kitchen was well-equipped; the sharp knives were actually sharp. There was plenty of toilet paper, paper towels, detergent, etc. The washer and dryer were huge. There was an abundance of new, soft bath towels and plenty of beach towels. Chairs, mats, an umbrella and two coolers were available for beach trips. The pool was so relaxing. This is great location for visiting beaches and other sites on the island. Don't miss Manini'owali Beach, Jackie Rey's Ohana Grill, or Kaloko-Honokohau National Historic Park.

We loved being so close to the ocean at Holly’s property! One of our favorites was watching the sunsets every evening. This home owner has thought of everything you might ever need from an amazingly stocked kitchen to snorkeling gear, coolers, chairs, etc! We highly recommend this property!

Where do I even start? The location is spectacular!! From the balcony, you have an unobstructed view of the ocean, the small but beautiful white sand beach and the multiple tide pools. The tide pools are so much teeming with activity that, just sitting on the balcony, we could watch the multi-colored fishes and the "resident" sea turtle going about their day. There are also a variety of birds such as mynas, cardinals, saffron finches etc. There is a myna couple who has taken residence in the coconut tree closest to the balcony and it was fun watching the guy vocalize his territorial ownership throughout the day. The highlight, however, has to be watching the surfers. They seem to be favoring the waters in front of the complex, which is yet again a testament to its amazing location. It was especially amazing to watch the pros pull off some breath-taking moves at close quarters, all from the comfort of the balcony. And the sound of the ocean was so good that we never closed the bedroom's sliding door, for the entire time that we were there! The condo itself was super clean and stocked with everything that you can think of, and then some. And..it had free A/C too! Many other places charge extra for it, so we truly appreciated it, especially since the days were on the warmer side during the beginning of our trip. In fact, it was such an amazing experience overall, that we ended up postponing some of our planned outdoor activities to a few days later! Finally, Holly was very prompt with her responses and always there to help us out with our questions.
