Imagine - warm tropical climate, gentle sounds of waves washing ashore, palm trees swaying in the breeze, panoramic views, and the perfect accommodations - is there anyway else to experience Hawaii?

This two bedroom, two-bath condominium gives you all of that and more! Kitchen has gotten an updated look with new backsplash and guest bath now has a beautiful walk in shower! We now have a mini-split A/C system as well! (Single blower located in living room/master bedroom area. No separate blower in guest room, so not as cooled back there)
Located on the fourth floor and north-end of a four-story building, this oceanfront condo boasts first-class views as well as excellent proximity to Kona town and all activities. Watch world-class surfers ride the waves while dolphins frolic in their wake. Enjoy seasonal whale watching right from your lanai and get a close up view of the giant sea turtles that come up on shore to sun themselves! (No touching though!)

This lovely condo has everything you need for an unforgettable Hawaiian getaway.

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.

Condo was very well appointed. It was situated centrally. Spectacular sunsets. Problems were quickly resolved by host. On site washer/dryer a huge plus. Needed to run the air at night due to lack of airflow in second bedroom. Everything worked well and efficiently.

Everything was lovely - the view, the access and the amenities. Nice to use the AC occasionally also!

The property is amazing, situated overlooking the ocean where you can hear and see the surf all day and night. Everything you need is here including nice beach chairs, towels and I even found some sunscreen. Parking is very easy and you are close to some amazing snorkeling. You can watch the surfers at the south end of the building and sit under the big trees there. We really enjoyed our stay here.

The stay at Holly’s was fantastic. We loved the condo, the location, the ocean view, everything. We left to go to HNL for a couple days and regret leaving this piece of paradise behind. The moonrise and sunsets, seeing Milky Way, the turtles in the bay, clouds over the mountains, etc. Holly had amenities to help us out (laundry detergent, mineral sunblock, shampoo, etc), and Holly was always very responsive. Would definitely stay there again and again!

The condo was great. The layout was nice & offered the best view of the oceanfront. Note: the unit does not have A/C, I overlooked this in the add so was a bit nervous before check-in. However, having the windows open & the breeze always going through worked great for us & not having A/C was not an issue. The condo had everything (& more!) that we needed, including beach chairs, towels & sunscreen. The location was a bit removed from the bustle of restaurants & shops of Kona which was just what we were looking for. Still close enough to go to dinner, but made it quieter the rest of the time. There are a few steps down onto the rocks & the beach right in front of the unit & we loved going down & looking at the tide pools & watching the sea turtles that liked to hang out right there. Would definitely recommend this complex & unit to anyone looking to stay in this area of the Big Island!

The condo unit (422) had a spectacular view of the ocean from the lanai where we ate every meal and spent a lot of time. The condo is centrally located, near the main part of Kailua-Kona but far enough away to 'get away from it all'. The kitchen was well-supplied with utensils, pots and pans, and even had an excellent selection of spices, and of course the welcome basket with Hawaiian treats and Kona coffee was welcome after a long flight. Very clean throughout the condo. My wife and I have dodgy backs and the beds were extremely comfortable. Supplies such as tissue paper and paper towels were plenty, and the washer/dryer seemed brand new. The ventilation was very good and so the need for an air conditioner was never needed, just the ceiling fans. Didn't have any problems with parking under the condo although the entrance was a little hard to find the first time (you need to go past De Poke Shack) but easy afterwards. Grocery shopping was an easy drive and the KTA was well stocked. Plenty of snorkeling places down the street and also further away. 2 hours to Volcano National Park and less than 30 minutes to Kona airport. There is a small pool but we didn't use it (didn't have time!). My wife left her Fitbit behind and Holly arranged to send it to us immediately when found....her status as Premier Host is well-deserved and everything went smoothly including all communications (quickly answered). Would come again.

This condo has a spectacular location, with great privacy on the lanai and full ocean frontage. We loved to listen to the surf crash day and night, watch for whales, spot spinner dolphins in flight, watch the surfers, explore the tide pools (included Moorish Idols and a Hawksbill Turtle!), watch sunsets and moonsets both into the Pacific. Well equipped to make breakfasts and pupus for happy hour or even a full meal. Great location close enough to town but away from the crowds. Definitely snorkel Kahalu'u bay just south. And try Magic Sands Beach Grill (specialty Mai Tai) and Kona Inn (coconut shrimp). Aloha and Mahalo.

Wonderful location and well equipped. Could have used a little more sun 🙂. Having Da Poke Shack downstairs was great. Saw a turtle in the pool.

Best view ever! Loved the waves crashing in at all hours. I could live in this condo. Nothing negative to say. It’s a short distance from all of the Kona touristy stuff which was perfect for us. We like to relax. We visited four islands this trip and this stay was the best of the four.

My family and I came out for New Years 2023. We had an amazing experience here in Kona! The fireworks were happening right from the front balcony. This is a lovely property with friendly people all around. The house was well stocked and we were very comfortable

Holly’s condo was exactly what we were wanting for our Hawaii vacation. It was the perfect size for our 2 adults and 2 teens. The beds were comfortable and being able to listen to the crashing waves every night was so refreshing. The kitchen was fully stocked with every utensil we would ever need, and this made our meal prep so much easier. We appreciated the beach gear and having a washer and dryer. The view from the Lanai was amazing. The ocean views every morning and the sunsets were breathtaking. It really made our vacation what we were hoping for. Very close proximity to the shops and beaches, not to mention the wonderful sandy areas at the condo were an added bonus, when we didn’t want to venture far. Even the parking garage has great views! Holly was so attentive and answered all of our questions. Definitely want to stay here again as this will be our condo of choice.

The location & views are what make this place special. If your looking for a low key complex with an amazing view from the Lanai, & the sounds of waves crashing at night, this place is for you!

We plan to make this our "go to" condo in Kona. The host was wonderful and the condo was really great, especially compared to many others we've stayed in with a similar price point.

Kitchen well equipped. Host provided a thoughtful welcome package of local treats. Condo has great views of the sunsets. Lanai is very private due to building design. Condo had umbrella, beach chairs, cooler and lots of towels. The unit has no AC but temperature was manageable with fans and closing sun screens in the late afternoon.

Everything was as advertised and the view was awesome. Little surprised that it didn’t have AC but with the ceiling fans and the ocean breeze, it was not needed. Kitchen was well stocked with every spice and appliance you would need. The pots and pans need to be updated though. Some of them stopped being non-stick about 10 years ago. Overall it was a 5-star stay.

The condo was well stocked and had lots of little extras that made our stay more than comfortable. The absolute best part was sitting in the lanai (not seeing any neighbors!), and enjoying the waves, swaying palms, and the chorus of the birds. This truly is a little piece of paradise! Holly was a wonderful host with excellent communication. We can't wait to come back! Aloha and Mahalo.

My husband treated me to a incredibly special 60th birthday present… an enjoyable week in Hawaii. I can’t imagine staying in a nicer place, the bedroom and living room overlooks the ocean which is directly below an extremely private and large balcony. Listen to the ocean waves to fall asleep too and wake up too was icing on the cake. Holly‘s place was extremely clean and well stocked, kitchen, bathrooms and even chairs and coolers in the bedroom closet. Holly was so sweet to provide a list of off the beaten path local restaurants, I think we visited more than a few times, they were fantastic. There’s even a local Sushi restaurant right downstairs!! There is an incredible Beach for body surfing just down the street (Magics Sand Beach) with a restaurant right next to it (Magics Grill). Enjoy dinner on the ocean. You are also close to downtown Kona, Restaurants, shopping, Activities! I truly can’t say enough wonderful things about our stay, I would definitely love to stay there again and highly recommend it to anyone interested and I relaxing ultimate Hawaiian vacation.

A very good location for all your wanderings on the Big Island. Clean, comfortable, and has a great view of the ocean. It was a little warm until we figured out how to use the fans and open doors to create a good breeze through the unit. Communications with the manager were excellent. Thank you Holly!

Perfect place to be. Watching ocean from lanai turtles too! Sound of the waves to put you to sleep. Everything you need is in the condo, very well equipped. Holly was easy to communicate with, though we really didn't have to speak with her after we arrived. Would stay here again.

April 2022
Very clean and well-stocked. But most importantly, the crashing waves right below the balcony! Just perfect.

Loved our stay, with an amazing view everyday. We saw turtles, dolphins and colourful fish right from the comfort of the lanai. The lanai was so great we were barely inside. Beds were very comfortable and had great sleep every night listening to the waves. The condo was clean, well stocked and just as advertised. No A/C but with breeze coming through patio doors and fans running it helped to make sure it wasn’t too hot inside. We appreciated having beach chairs, umbrella and beach bags there to use. Pool area was clean and a great spot to cool off.

Sleeping to the sound of the waves every night was exactly what we were wanting when we booked this condo. The lanai was perfect for coffee sipping, book reading and watching the pod of dolphins play off shore. Our only downside was the 2nd room is a little noisy from the street which made it harder for our littles to go to bed and nap every day. But they were so exhausted from playing at the beach all day it wasn’t too big of a problem. The turtles right outside in the tide pools were their absolute favorite part!

March 2022
We enjoyed our stay in Holly's condo so much. It was nice & clean & FULLY supplied with everything we would need. The location was good & was perfect for 3 adults. We would DEFINITELY stay here again!

This property is exactly as listed, very clean, and right on the water. My 5 and 1 year olds had fun in the pool and walking along the shore. The sound of the waves lulled us to sleep every night. Pretty amazing!

More than we ever wanted for less than we ever expected to spend. Beautiful Hawaiian sunsets? And moonsets! Check. Turtles grazing in the lava ponds? Check. Whale mom AND baby frolicking just off the coastline? Check. Dolphins spinning and jumping amongst the whales? Check. A bazillion photo opportunities all from your own lanai (which just happens to be perfectly situated between all destinations north and south)? Check, check, and check! Add the warm hospitality and always available and attentive Holly and staying here for all your visits to the Big Island is a must!

Our stay was delightful. The unit is accurately described by many of the reviews. The lanai is heavenly as is the crashing surf on the lava rocks and beach below. I would add that the owners provide MANY things which you don’t have to buy yourself, such as d/w liquid, laundry detergent, soaps, beach towels and beach chairs, beach umbrella, spices in kitchen and some basic tin foil and Saran Wrap which was most helpful for the entire stay. We found this to be most helpful so as not to have to purchase and leave behind. Thank you for that. Unit accommodates 4 people. As clean and accommodating as the hosts are, it’s all about the lanai! And in Hawaii, that’s meaningful!

Our one week stay in this condo was more comfortable and pleasant than I expected. I feel the photos and the listing are not doing justice, it is decorated nicer than it shows in the listing, stocked up with everything you could possible need for a beach vacation, new&high quality appliances, it is right on the shore so you hear the waves at night and the view… oh well, this raised the bar for all the ocean-facing accommodations. It does have 2 full washrooms (not mentioned in the listing), also it may not be huge though just comfortable for 4 people. Overall highly recommended. Mahalo!

We love Kona Bali Kai and this must be the nicest unit in the place. The kitchen was so well stocked that it made cooking so nice. There was plenty of space for four adults, especially with the excellent lanai. We loved eating, resting, watching sunsets and scoping out the turtles from the lanai every day. The view from the master bed is also fantastic. There were tons of towels - way more than we needed, beach chairs and boogie boards. The property manager was very responsive and super helpful. All around excellent stay!

This was our first trip to Hawaii and we are BEYOND happy with our stay at the Kona Bali Kai! It was everything we had hoped and more. Sleeping with the doors open to the ocean was amazing. The TV was never even cut on. Great location. Pool was great. Great hostess! It was all wonderful, I could never say enough. I hope we get to come back!
