We can't say enough good things about this property and the host. We loved our stay. Property is on the first floor, and we used the stairs for access. There is an elevator but we never used it. Unit is super clean and fully stocked. AC worked great as well as large fans in each room to keep air moving when needed.
Kitchen was large, plenty of dishes, large refrigerator, freezer and ice maker was such a bonus! Dishwasher was so nice because really who wants to do dishes by hand on vacation! Coffee maker allowed us to relax and enjoy coffee each morning taking in the beautiful ocean view on the deck.
Two bathrooms so there is never a wait. Large master bath with tiled shower felt luxurious and a treat. King bed in master is firm and very comfortable. Basically the entire ocean side wall is windows and sliders. We left the windows coverings open whenever possible because we loved the view. To wake up to the ocean and to go to sleep with the stars and moon were incredible. You can hear the ocean at all times so if you are a light sleeper a sound machine or ear plugs might be something you want for a night or two. We didn't mind it at all and it lulled us to sleep.
The second bedroom has two twin beds and a ceiling fan for additional guests. We used this room for our suitcases and dressing so we didn't have to close the curtains as much to the deck.
Host was wonderful, communication was easy and she checked in to be sure we were all set. Parking was easy also and free.
Loved this condo, it was just as pictured. Everything we needed was there and it was so clean and well taken care of. Air conditioner cooled it down nicely on hot days. Beautiful sunsets and Kona is a cool town. I would stay here again in a heartbeat!
The whole family enjoyed this vacation rental. The place was very clean when we arrived. You could tell that they take pride in having their rentals clean. The AC unit in the Livingroom did a really nice job of cooling the whole unit. It was in a good location for easy drive to shops and restaurants. Even saw a number of dolphins from the balcony. Good experience all around.
This complex is the best value on the island! The oceanfront view is outstanding. This unit was so clean and well-appointed. We had everything we needed for the perfect vacation and the owner was great at checking with us to be sure everything met our expectations.
All as advertised. Plenty of towels and space for our family of 4 to spread out. Excellent view right on ocean, with lovely sound of waves crashing in.
A couple questions we had during the stay were quickly answered by Holly.
Everything was perfect. The view from the lanai is even better than the picture. The condo had everything we needed. Good location and easy parking. Would love to stay there again.
We had a lovely time in this wonderful condo.
Great location, sunsets, and loved the sound of the waves pounding on the lava.
We stayed for a few nights with teen girls and had a great time visiting the Big Island. The condo itself was perfect. It was modern and had everything we needed. I appreciate that because some condos we’ve stayed in provide the bare minimum so it’s a great benefit not to worry about the little things like soap, dish soap or even beach chairs. The best part of the stay though was the sound of the ocean and the waves crashing. That was amazing….all in all a great stay!
A great place with a wonderful view. Very clean, will recommend and stay here again in the future.
Sitting on the balcony watching the waves and sunsets from this place are priceless! And Da Poke Shack is right in the parking lot! Even though it is like an older motel, it was very quiet, and easy to sleep to crashing waves. Best for 4 people, as the sofabed is only separated from the master by a sliding door (lack of privacy and no sound-proofing), the space is comfortable, with all the amenities you need to cook your own food! Snorkel Bob’s nearby will outfit you with gear, and the unit has a couple beach chairs and an umbrella, plus boogie board. For a big Sandy beach, head to Hapuna about 35 minutes away. However, you can walk to a little strip of sand next door to lay out or sit, and a little further down is a surfing and snorkeling beach. Driving is necessary to get to restaurants and activities, and parking is tough in town, usually requires paid lots. But getting in and out of the property is easy! Plenty of towels and linens and all are comfy! Sofabed, not so much. Hard to use the closet in the guest bedroom with the bed arrangement, as it is a tight space. Owner was fantastic and provided great food recommendations, and accommodated us every step of the way! Would definitely stay here again!
Great and responsive host …..at all hours …
Can’t say enough about Holly
Exactly as advertised. Pleasantly surprised at how every possible need was covered. View and sunsets were amazing. Loved the sound of waves crashing during the night. Bed and pillows were so comfortable. Air conditioner worked wonderfully; only needed to use it once though as the ocean breezes and fans almost always kept the condo a perfect temperature. Would happily return to this unit.
We had a great time in this new renovated rental. Everything we needed was there. We enjoyed the lanai right at the ocean - beautiful mornings and unforgettable sunsets. The trolley into town was great.
We really enjoyed our stay at this beautiful condo. The location is perfect and the view is excellent. We enjoyed being so close to the ocean and able to just relax on the patio and hear the waves. The condo is very comfortable, with all we needed. The AC worked well, keeping us cool at night. Holly was great to work with and responded quickly to any questions we had. We look forward to visiting again! Thank you Holly!
This condo at Kona Bali Kai was awesome! Great location and was very peaceful.
Great location on the ocean. I took my elderly parents, my brother and wheelchair dependent sister on our trip to the Big Island. There was more than enough room to accommodate all 5 of us—one person had to sleep on the couch (It should be the smallest person). My sister, who is an amputee, was able to navigate the condo independently and there is an elevator. Management provided a shower chair and walker upon request. The condo was fully equipped with beach towels, a spice rack for cooking, sunblock and aloe vera for sunburns not to mention laundry soap, dishwashing liquid etc. There was even a bucket and cooler which came in handy for my dad and brother’s fishing excursions. There was very little we had to buy except for our meals. My mom and dad loved falling asleep to the sound of the ocean waves and we even saw some large green sea turtles on the rocks, small crabs and fish swimming in the ocean in front of the property . There are 2 smart TVs in the condo for those lazy days when we didn’t want to leave the condo—which were very few! We brought our own guidebook but there were several Big Island guidebooks available to us on the bookshelf. Holly, the property manager, responded right away to any question I asked. The pool and jacuzzi on the premises were lovely and the maintenance staff working on the property were all very friendly. We were all very sad when we had to leave the condo. It felt like our home for 13 nights. We will definitely return when we visit the Big Island again.
Amazing oceanfront property located in Kona.
Great condo furnished with Hawaiian decor equipped with everything needed for a great vacation.
Holly and Denise were available for any assistance and provided extra special delivery service.
Da Poke shop located next to property had amazing food making sunset dinners on balcony perfect evenings.
This was an excellent rental property -- location was unbelievable, apartment was stocked with useful amenities, and Holly (host) was super communicative. Definitely 5 stars!
-- Location cannot be beat. The panoramic and unobstructed ocean view was fantastic. I don't think we closed the sliding doors once the whole time we were there! We even saw a sea turtle crawl out of the water to sunbathe.
-- The only "con" about the location is that the beach right outside is quite rocky; so you can't really swim there but it is great for looking at tide pools.
-- Apartment was clean and came stocked with everything we needed, including beach towels, umbrellas, and chairs; pool noodles; and boogie boards.
-- Size of apartment was ideal for the three of us (two adults and 13yo). You could very easily have 4 adults stay with no issues.
-- Parking was super easy, just under the building and we never had trouble finding a spot.
-- There is a pool, but it isn't designed for kids to play in easily. It starts at 4ft and progresses to 7ft deep. The pool noodles came in handy here.
-- Shops and restaurants are not too far away (2-4 miles).
Wonderful place to stay - centrally located, well appointed, and a fantastic view! Holly is a great host!
We totally enjoyed our stay and can’t wait to go back. The pictures don’t do the view justice.
Great place, great location and a great host! Stay here again anytime!
The condo was nicely maintained and right on the ocean. Reasonably close to town (Kona) and beaches. Very comfortable for 2-4 people.
Best condo! Beautiful view, very comfortable, awesome location. Had everything we could ask for! Thanks so very much! Loved our stay!
This condo had a great location and Holly was easy to work with and communicated through the whole process.
Loved this place, only 25 mins from airport and right on the ocean. Easy parking, short drive from lots of parks etc
Will definitely be back
Awesome location and the view is great.
Very command well appointed.
Comfortable, great view
We have been to Kona a dozen times and this was the best place we’ve stayed yet! Unbeatable view and o ram sounds…almost always had three pool to ourselves. Condo was well stocked and very clean. Will definitely rent again! Mahalo!! 😊
The 2 bedroom unit was wonderful and had everything we needed. When we arrived the balcony doors were open with the view and sounds of the ocean. It was a good touch to have the tv music playing Hawaiian music….very inviting.
Every day we could see sea turtles come into the tide pool areas. We enjoyed grilling on the bbq grills right below in front of the ocean. It was easy to find great restaurants, beaches, shops and historical sites by short drives….some within walking distance.
The pool was warmish and hot jacuzzi was good….wished it had a view Oceanfront but still great to have.. The unit had beach towels, chairs, boogie boards too wish was nice to have those supplied.
Overall….my family and I really loved it and are sorry to leave today.
Wonderful property, great location, wonderful amenities… twin beds perfect for little ones. Well stocked beach toys, towels, chais, cooler….Good location. Must try Poke downstairs!!!
We loved it. Was perfect for what we were looking for!
We enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend this condo. It's close to shopping, restaurants and the beach. It has great views and the sunsets are spectacular.
We enjoyed having meals in the balcony and listened to the ocean waves to put me to sleep.
Gorgeous interior! Clean and had all the amenities you could ask for. The view from the balcony was perfect for sunsets. Great communication through the entire process !
Beautiful place to stay near downtown Kona. Location couldn’t have been better!! Holly was precise and easy to work with. We didn’t need to contact her at all about the stay! We are looking forward to coming back and staying in the future.
Beautiful condo, well stocked, everything we needed, gorgeous view from the lanai, excellent location!!! Holly was extraordinarily helpful, responsive to our needs and helped us with a problem that had nothing to do with the condo. We’d definitely stay again!
