This desirable oceanfront penthouse unit (with elevator) features spacious open beam ceilings and is only 30 feet from the gentle surf lapping directly below the lanai, where 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 wood-grained tile lanai in your lounge chairs. 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 remodeled master bathroom and shower with multiple shower heads, double sinks and contemporary tile work. The beautiful wood-grained tile floors, 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 into the wall pocket 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.

Our family of 4 had a lovely stay! And Mike was so easy to communicate with. This condo has just about anything you could need, from beach chairs to laundry detergent, and it was so fun waking up and watching the surfers from the lanai. Hope to be back in the future.



March 2024
Loved the unit. It was clean and had everything you needed on your trip. Loved the games and puzzles for the kids to do at night. Lots of beach gear for those trips out boogie boarding, snorkeling, or just relaxing on the beach. Would certainly stay here again and recommend to anyone visiting the area.

The lanai and view were outstanding! We enjoyed every minute watching surfers, ocean and sky. The unit was very well stocked with everything we needed. Many thanks.

Really love the beach here at this condo. The water is kind of tough which makes for good surfing which we loved to watch.

We just returned from enjoying 5 days at this beautiful condo. We were looking for comfortable accommodations that would feel like a home away from home. We did not want a sprawling resort where it would take 10 minutes to get to our room, offer no parking and fake views. We traveled to Kailua for the Ocean and Authentic nature. This condo did not disappoint. We enjoyed watching the surfers and whales from the balcony and loved falling asleep at night with the breeze and sounds of the ocean. Mike thought of everything to make his guests comfortable. There is a great selection of beach supplies so you don't need to bring anything and everything is in great condition. Most condos are almost empty but this one has what you might need so you aren't forced to make a trip to Walmart every day for little necessities, (shampoo, bandaids, sunscreen, coffee, spices, etc.). The building itself is a little old but the condo unit itself is wonderful. After staying here, no other condo could compare. We couldn't have been happier and will definitely book again the next time we travel to Kailua.

Although we were six women and completely filled the space, we were very comfortable. Beds were fine, kitchen well stocked. The oceanfront lanai was amazing. Mike is a conscientious owner, responding immediately to any questions or concerns we had.

Spacious two bedroom condo with huge lanai. Well equipped and stocked. Plenty of power strip with USB charger which was very convenient. Ceiling fan switch of the 2nd bedroom near the entrance was broken or we could not find anywhere so we could not turn it off when checking out. Overall great stay. Mahalo!

Comfortable, well-appointed, comfortable, close to Kona and great beaches. Helpful information from hosts, functional kitchen with all the necessary supplies, enjoyed the constant sound of the ocean and lanai. Very responsive owner.

What can I say, everything was amazing. Clean, well stocked, and of course the view. We have stayed at this property before, in a different unit. Unit 405 has set a new standard for us!!! We hope to be back again.

Lovely condo with amazing views off the lanai… the best place ever for morning coffee!! Everything went smoothly as Mike is a fantastic host. We look forward to staying there again!

After a bit of a rocky start with check in that Mike took care of, our brief time here was really nice. It's all about the waves crashing right below the unit, that's the draw. Unit is nice, bed really comfortable. No A/C and I admit I somehow missed that when I booked so a bit of a shock but in reality you don't need it here. The off shore breeze going through the huge screened lanai keeps things cool. It's really just when getting out of the shower I missed the A/C. I believe many of the condos in this area are without. I would totally stay here again! Fun watching the surfers right there at the unit. Super close to many restaurants and points of interest.

What a fantastic place! The location, the view, the condo were all wonderful!!!!! Thank you Mike for sharing, it’s a joy! I could sit on the lanai and look at the ocean forever. Hope to come back soon! Mahalo

What a wonderful place to stay at. This isn’t like any other rental it feels like you are renting Mike’s personal residence with great decor, island recommendations and tips, along with some books about the island. The condo is well appointed, has comfortable beds along with a variety of items that you likely wouldn’t want to go buy for a short trip. Mike appropriately mentions there is no AC, which at first is a shock when you walk into the condo but after opening the sliding lanai doors, turning on fans, and opening the windows the breeze begins to help. Also love that the condo has a front screen door to allow extra airflow. The condo has a variety of beach toys which were great to use at the beach just down the street. Never used the kitchen but it had most anything you could need. Would definitely stay here again and enjoy the waves and sunsets from the lanai. Only issue we had during our trip was the elevator broke down one afternoon and was still getting serviced the following day, this is out of the host’s control. Would love to stay here again.

A stones throw from the ocean, awesome views of sunsets, surfers, turtles... you couldnt ask for more. The owners put careful thought into providing everything you would need, including things you didnt know you needed. Mike responded very quickly to any question we had. Having stayed at resorts for decades in HI, this condo was everything we were looking for and more. The kitchen and grills allowed us the option of making our own gourmet meals and happy hours, and if you add free parking, it blows away resort vacations. We will definitely be back!

This is an excellent rental choice. The unit is as good as advertised, and the view is even better. The check in process and communication was very efficient. A few others have mentioned this fact but it bears repeating that, like most condos in Hawaii, this unit does not have AC. While opening the sliding doors helps (and listening to the waves hit the shore), I did have some trouble sleeping at night because I was used to a cooler room temperature at home. Overall, I had a fantastic stay and highly recommend this rental home.


Tess P.
September 2023
This condo is the best place I’ve stayed at in Hawaii! Very clean, comfortable beds, and well stocked with all the necessities. They went the extra mile to make the guests comfortable. The closeness of the property to the water can’t be beat and is exactly what I looked for when staying in Hawaii. We slept listening to the sound of waves and woke up watching the surfers and fishes on water. We also saw turtles feeding off the rocks on our first day! Overall this place is perfect! Plentiful parking space is a bonus! Will stay here again and recommend to friends!



September 2023
My family and I enjoyed our 9 night stay. It was clean, comfortable and the view cant be beat! Mike (the host) called us shortly after arrival to check to make sure we had gotten checked in ok. Would definitely stay here again and would highly recommend!

This property is a true gem - well maintained and thoughtfully designed for comfort and luxury. The entire home is well-equipped. It is obvious that the owners had put a lot of care into making sure guests felt right at home. Location is incredible.

Stayed here for a couple of nights at the end of our two week Hawaiian vacation. Could not get over the view of the sunsets and the sound of the ocean! Perfection!!! Would stay there again.


Scott M.
August 2023
Loved this place. Right on the ocean, enjoyed dinner on the lanai every night to watch the sunset. Slept to the sound of the ocean waves, watched surfers. While no A/C was a little challenging for some of the hot days/evenings, the fans helped us sleep and it cooled off comfortably overnight. Instructions of the use of the facility was very clear and understandable. All the comforts and ease of home. I would highly recommend if staying in Kona.

You can’t beat the unobstructed ocean view! The property was very well stocked with beach and snorkeling gear, so nice to not have to worry about that! The house stayed cool with the doors open to catch the breeze. We really enjoyed our stay!

Wonderful location, beautiful inside, lanai was wonderful for watching the waves and seeing the sun set. Host was amazing. Would stay again.

This is a nice little spot with its own small beach and grassy area, not far from shopping and restaurants. This is NOT close to the resort area, though. It’s a completely different vibe, so be sure this is what you’re after. The apartment is fully stocked and cools off nicely (it’ll be hot when you walk in- just turn on fans, open the balcony door, and give it a minute). Heads up though- the door knob/lock is still broken (mentioned in a review from a few weeks ago) and it is an absolute beast to finagle. And the kids’ room is less than ideal. But for the money, you’re getting a great place.


Diana M.

The property was exactly as posted. The owner was easy to work with throughout the process. Covered parking included in the rental fee. Would love to stay there again!

Fantastic location, great condo, excellent communication. We’d definitely stay here again! Only recommendation would be to fix or replace the entry door handle, opening the door with the key was a challenge. Otherwise, just terrific!


Eben H.

Mike and his wife are great hosts. They were attentive and helpful with all our questions. You cannot be closer to the ocean unless you slept on a boat. The view is fantastic and the location is one of a well known surf area so you get to watch some great surfers. The condo is spotless and kitchen is very well stocked. We will stat here next time we are in Kona.....Excellent stay!!


Kelly R.

We have stayed on this property before in other condos, but this one was the best! The kitchen had everything we needed, the bed was super comfortable along with the furniture and you can’t beat the view! Would definitely come back!

Only had a few days but we really enjoyed our time at this property. It is exactly as described/shown. Don't let the outside of the property sway you (slightly older and some wear and tear); the unit itself is fully updated and beautiful, and those sunsets are amazing! The kitchen had all the essentials - we ended up cooking dinner every night there. The breeze through the lanai was great and we didn't mind the lack of AC. The front bedroom was a bit stuffy, but there are plenty of fans to cool things off. Mike's travel guides were so helpful - especially the different routes and stops along the way. I highly recommend this property for your Kona vacation!


Randall B.

This condo met all of our expectations....great furnishings, lanai, location. Was thoroughly enjoyable watching sunsets, and surfers right from our lanai. We would highly recommend this condo.

This property has everything. Kitchen was stocked with all essentials. Beds were super comfortable and the sunrise/sunsets were spectacular.


Heather C.

We had a wonderful stay. It was perfection to go to sleep to the sound of the waves plus wake up and watch the surfers on the lanai. The unit had everything we needed during our stay and the communication was very good. Will definitely stay here again when we visit the island. Mahalo!

Great ocean views, and well stocked kitchen. Nice space overall. Only downside was that the kids' room was small and noisy since the windows opened to the walkway and street.

My family of 4 spent a week here in August and I think it's our favorite VRBO rental ever. What makes it so special? The little things....an incredibly detailed binder on the desk that contained every piece of information you'd need about the unit and Kona, decaf coffee in the kitchen, laundry supplies, so many games for all ages, tons of extra bedding and pillows, etc. It was more like staying at a friends house than renting a condo. There are items for the beach and everything you'd need in the kitchen. The complex itself if in a great location as it's close to several beaches and downtown but far enough from downtown to avoid the crowds. The sunsets from the lanai are the best we've EVER seen from any place. Should we be lucky enough to visit Kona again, we would absolutely stay at Kona Bali Kai!

This unit was equipped with what we needed for our 4 day stay. We didn't realize there was no a/c and it was a little stuffy and warm when we arrived around 8 pm but there were several ceiling fans and stand alone fans, along with the open to ocean glass doors it did cool down somewhat. It was exceptionally warm temperatures while we were there. The beds were comfortable and Mike, the host was very accommodating in getting the two single beds together as well for our arrival. We had trouble getting the sliding glass door open and when I called it took all of 60 seconds for him to return my call! Service you can't beat. All in all it was a great place to stay.

Convenient location. The size and layout was very comfortable for our party of 4. You could easily fit 2 more people. The condo was equipped with all your needs They anticipated everything! We couldn’t have had a better view of the sunsets and ocean. We ran into an emergency and Mike the manager couldn’t have been more accommodating! I would highly recommend staying here!

We enjoyed our stay here! Gorgeous views of the ocean from the lanai. Excellent communication and tips for our stay from Mike (the owner). I would recommend this place if you are looking to stay anywhere near Kona.

Excellent location with great views of the ocean and a Poke Shack within the condo complex. Watch the surfers all day from a nice big balcony. The unit had everything you needed for nice and comfortable stay.


Laura P.
August 2022
Mike’s place was a great place to stay. It was centrally located near downtown Kona. They had all the amenities of home. Unlike some condo rentals that are kind of sterile, this place has all the comforts of home so that you don’t have to shop for every last little thing on vacation. Having all the beach/snorkel equipment, coolers for day trips were super helpful. Pool was great and you see people constantly maintaining the property. Lastly,I would not worry about the lack of air-conditioning because it definitely cools off at night. You just need to leave the lanai doors open and know that the ocean makes a lot of white noise :) zzzzzzz


Brynne M.
August 2022
Nice condo right on the ocean. Kitchen is well stocked as well as bathrooms. Loved being able to hang out on the patio when we weren’t exploring the island. Sea turtles and fish were visible from the balcony, and we saw pilot whales offshore (with a spotting scope). There is no AC but only one of the days felt uncomfortably warm - you can mostly get by with open windows and fans. Would definitely return!



August 2022
This was a wonderful place in evry way, comfortable bed, beautifully appointed, but the little things made it absolutely wonderful- coffee, games, first aide kit, watersport supplies, staples ( peanu tbutter) in the fridge, and helpful books. I would return in a heartbeat. Oh and Poke shack right there!


Jason L.

Really nice, clean, tastefully decorated apartment right on the water with a tradewind breeze each night. Great location in the heart of Kona and a good base to explore the Big Island. Would love to stay again sometime!

The view was amazing! The unit was clean and stocked with all the necessities. Checking in and out was easy and our host called to make sure we made it in okay. (That was a first). Kudos to Mike for making our stay as flawless as possible. I would definitely recommend and would love to stay at his unit again in the future. And…sea turtles! We saw a ton!


Lisa W.

We really enjoyed our stay at unit!. It was very clean and they provided a good supply of pots, pans, and cups/utensils, etc. The beds were very comfortable, and had no issues falling asleep with the sound of waves crashing. The views from this unit were absolutely wonderful! We strongly recommend staying in this unit. Hope to come back soon!!


Katy B.
June 2022
Overall, the property was wonderful. It was nice and clean, great beach view, loved hearing the ocean at night through the screens. The kitchen was wonderfully stocked, coffee bar was super nice. Since we were only staying 3 days it saved us from having to buy condiments, sugar, etc. Just FYI, there is no air conditioning, so if you like it super cold this might not be the place for you! Once we figured out the way the air flowed through the screens as well as using the multiple fans supplied throughout the condo we were mostly good. Only one night where it was fairly warm which was our first night. We enjoyed our stay!


Michelle P.
June 2022
Great condo for our last three days. As mentioned in other reviews kitchen was stocked. Mike reached out to confirm we got in ok and that all was good. Loved sitting on the balcony watching sunsets.


Rachel S.
June 2022
I can’t say enough about this place. For the price, the view and location can not be beat. We woke up every morning and sat on the lanai to drink coffee and watch the surfers. I feel asleep every night listening to the ocean waves. Sure, it’s an older property but it is extremely well kept up. Clean. Nicely decorated. It had everything we needed and more: fully stocked kitchen, washer and dryer, wi-fi, bags to take to the grocery store, beach toys, boogie boards, we even found water shoes for my daughter in the chest on the porch. I seriously could not recommend this place more. There are TVs but we never turned them on in the main rooms. Mike responded quickly when we had an issue with the key but we honestly never needed him much. He also had a notebook full of information about the condo AND all the local attractions. HIGHLY recommend this condo!!! Would definitely rebook if we come back to Kona.


Steven D.
June 2022
This place has a great view! What really took us by surprise was the kitchen and fridge. We have stayed at dozens of rental places and this one takes the cake! The first thing we do when we arrive at a condo is look at what is in the kitchen and what we need to purchase for our week. We were shocked to open the fridge and see most of the stuff we can use. (Usually the fridge is almost bare).... The view of this property owner is to allow the renter before to leave items in the fridge... For us we found Eggs, Some sodas, Yogurt that was still good and lots of condiments. In the freezer was some popsicles. The kitchen was well stocked with everything we could need to cook. We did run out of Mustard so purchased one and left it behind... It was also nice at checkout to not have to throw things away that the next person could use. Simple things as packaged ice cream cones... and soda's we didn't finish... I was worried about the not having AC for the week...but with the double sliding glass doors we got a good flow of air... The tide pools out front of the unit was fun to explore... Great place to stay!

Our stay at Mike's place at Kona Bali Kai was great! It was clean, the location was great and the sunset views from the lanai were AMAZING! We enjoyed sitting out there every morning and watching the surfers. We would definitely stay there again. Mahalo for a great week!


Frank S.

Perfect location, with all the amenities of home, from which to explore the big island. We found the condo to far exceed it's description in the listing. We saw turtles lounging on the rocks nearly every day. Would book again, no question.


Brian B.
March 2022
Condo was well stocked and was very clean, as was the property and grounds. The view off of the lanai was perfect for sunsets and laid back surfing was right there. Not a crowded area and provided parking was easy even for a large SUV. Great little cash only convenience store across the road that gives free ice with purchase. Highly recommended!

We had a great experience during our stay. Mike provided us with all of the information we needed and was responsive to messages. The pictures were accurate - the condo is right on the water making for a fantastic view of the ocean from the balcony. Our children (ages 3-9) loved the pool onsite and were excited to find games and drawing/coloring materials in the unit. The unit was nicely finished and comfortable for our family. We would stay there again and recommend to friends.


Judith J.
March 2022
We chose this property for the following reasons, availability for our travel dates, ocean view, 2 bedroom/2bath and best location for our island travel plans. We enjoyed the lanai especially in the mornings as we had breakfast. Saw whales and spinner dolphins as well as the variety of Banyan surfers and boogie boarders on a daily basis..

We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The unit was clean and comfortable and well stocked. There is ample parking and even though we did not use it, the pool on the property was well maintained. The views of the sunset were spectacular and we enjoyed watching the surfers out front every day. The owner is extremely responsive and easy to deal with. We hope to return again.

This is a somewhat dated condo, but comfortable with a fantastic view of the ocean. The sunsets from the deck were spectacular. The owner was VERY responsive. The condo was well stocked with dishes, fans, beach equipment and more. I would recommend.

Sara B.
January 2022
Amazing view from lanai. Heard the ocean all night long. Appreciated the comfy lanai furniture for reading watching the ocean and surfers and eating our meals. Well equipped. Beds awful. Master bedroom super soft. Twins super hard — my son slept on the couch because so uncomfortable. Also could hear the road from the second bedroom. Strange odor from freezer/ fridge — best guess is the open condiments left by past guest had spoiled. Pool right next to parking area and not inviting due to the location. Towels need to be replaced. Not soft at all. Lots of info provided by host. Disposal not working and he had it fixed right away. Okay in January not to have a/c but guess it would be really hot in the summer.


Janice B.
January 2022
Booking, check in, communication with owner, all easy.. Kona Bali Kai property is older and more "middle class" but we care about the proximity to the surf, lanai views and ocean sounds lulling us to sleep. In this regard it the best!

We loved being right on the water with access to beach area. The first night sea turtles were on shore. There are several tidal pools with tons of sea urchins.


Carrie s.

Clean, well appointed condo, centrally located for west coast fun. Watched surfers off the lanai each morning while drinking Kona coffee. Our host thought of everything and provides a wealth of info in the condo notebook. During COVID book your tours early (as soon as you buy plane tickets!). Manta ray night snorkel was out of this world! Snorkel Safari with Kaimana Ocean Safari was amazing!!!!! Fair Winds morning snorkel tour is not to be missed. Snorkeled from shore but visibility and access to wildlife better on there tours. Worth every penny! Aloha!

Great location in Kona right on the ocean front. Close to everything and has good amenities. I highly recommend staying here for a family of 5 or less.


Cynthia R.

This is a wonderful top floor condo located right on the ocean. Perfect for folks who want to fall asleep to ocean sounds and eat dinner watching sunset and surfers. Mike has equipped the place with almost anything you can think you might need to enjoy a stay on the Big Island - from binoculars to fins and a fully equipped kitchen. We are already planning a return visit. Mahalo Mike.


Robert S.

Very well stocked with all the essentials one would need for a vacation in paradise! Mike was very responsive and accommodating to the needs of our stay. We were easily able to control the temperature of the room and the sound of the surf was perfect to fall asleep and wake up to. Would definitely stay here again.


Elissa L.
December 2021
We loved our time at Mike's place. It was as described with everything we could need and more. We loved watching the surfers and the sunsets from the lanai and going to sleep to the sound of the waves. The kitchen was well stocked as was the "toy box" with boogie boards, beach chairs, umbrellas etc. Mike provided us with lots of great information and was easy to communicate with. We would highly recommend this property. My husband was worried about the lack of AC but this was never an issue the condo was always comfortable.


Tana S.
November 2021
We absolutely loved our stay at this property. The host goes above and beyond with recommendations from activities to food. Check-in and parking were a breeze. Watching the surfers every morning and evening on the lanai was my favorite way to really soak it all in. Highly recommend.


Michael K.

Very nice property on the top-level that provided excellent ocean views/breezes. We enjoyed sitting on the lanai and watching the surfers as well as eating while having refreshing beverages. Easy access to condo off the elevator and having luggage carts made the move into the room easy. Pool & hot tub were small but not crowded. The condo was comfortable and was well stocked w/ all the amenities we needed. Mike G (the host) was very responsive for any questions we had. Great location to travel to/from the west side of the island as well as access to Volcanoes National Park, Hilo and the northern side (Hawi) of the island- all were within 2 hours (only because the speed limits and drivers obey the speed limits 👍). Great time and Mahalo to Mike and his wife 🙏


Allison F.
October 2021
We thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the condo. The balcony is great for watching the surfers, eating our meals, and just relaxing. The condo is well stocked with kitchen supplies, cookware and beach items. You will need a car as it is not within walking distance to the main shopping area. A must do is Da Poke shop which is on-site.


Debbie T.
August 2021
The location is perfect! The ocean view is perfect! The condo itself has everything you need, kitchen is well stocked. I t is extra nice that they have beach chairs and snorkel equipment for your use. We had a great time!


Kathy B.

We stayed 5 days at the end of our 2 week trip to Hawaii and it was the perfect way to end the vacation. Very clean property, comfortable beds and everything you could need in the kitchen for meal prep. We spent a lot of mornings and evenings on the lanai enjoying the view. Added bonus that I may have missed is that the water is so close and clear that you can watch the fish and turtles very clearly, right from the lanai! If we ever return to the big island we will 100% stay here again.

Mike’s property was one of the best we have stayed at. It was incredibly well stocked. I could not think of one thing we may have needed that the condo didn’t have. Communication with Mike was great for the few questions we had. Loved watching surfers and turtles in the water during meals. Loved listening to the waves crash at night. We were concerned about no a/c, but it never got too hot. Highly recommend this property. We would love to go back and stay again.

Beautiful condo with amazing views! Loved watching the surfers from the lanai and finding sea turtles in the tide pools right in front of the condo. The view from the condo was simply breathtaking! Mike was a great host. Answered all of my many questions, gave helpful tips on places to see, and how to spend your time. The only negative was that the condo didn't have a/c -which I didn't notice before I booked. It got pretty steamy/ humid in the condo even with the amazing ocean breezes and all of the fans running. We discovered this is pretty typical in Hawaii in general, as all of the restaurants and stores we visited -even the airport was not air conditioned. We very much enjoyed our stay. Hawaii is such a beautifully diverse island. We hope to be return some day.

This place was clean, quiet and comfortable. We had fun watching the surfers from the balcony. The host provided us with snorkeling equipment and beach toys that were enjoyed by the grandkids. The location is close to everything. Highly recommend.

Oceanfront, roaring ocean sounds. Best stocked condo ever. This host has thought of a guest’s every need. I might just move in! Highest recommendation.

Mike's place was really great, from the amazing 4th-floor views of Kona sunsets to the well-stocked kitchen. It had a coffee table full of board games and card games, two different sized coolers for day trips and a ton of beach toys & snorkel gear. Each room even had nice USB and 120V charging stations for electronic devices. The water is not great for swimming, but we saw syrfers every day and you can see amazing lava rocks, turtles and urchins.

We really enjoyed sitting outside watching the turtles and surfers. The sound of the waves was amazing. Great location, close to shopping and beaches. Clean and updated unit, well stocked with supplies and beach gear. Highly recommend!

My wife made me promise that I would note that this was one of the best stocked short term rentals. Many kitchen supplies. Hairdryers in both bathrooms. We watched surfers from the balcony. Plenty of space.

If you book this condo you will not regret it, it is a wonderful place to stay while you are on the big island. The views of the oven from the lanai are amazing! We watched the surfers, turtles and the waves. Not a great place to swim for my younger daughter but we still got in and played in the swallows. Mile was great to work with and his condo is supplied with everything that we needed to have a great day at the beach soaking up the rays!

This is a premier location. I could have spent my entire vacation on the fantastic lanai! Mike’s unit had everything you could want to enjoy the Kona coast. I’d like to keep it my little secret! But, it is a must stay kind of place. Mike is super responsive. An excellent host if there are any questions. I definitely recommend.

Although we had some hiccups at the check-in at the beginning, we were still so happy about the stay. The condo has a magnificent ocean view. The ocean is about 15 feet away to the building. In the morning, waking up in the sound of ocean wave, sitting in the balcony, it is so relaxed and joyful to enjoy "surfing show" performed the whole day. The condo also has almost all the amenities we need. At evening, our family sitting in the balcony to have a "sunset" dinner. Unforgettable! We will definitely try to stay here again next time visit big island. Also strongly recommended to all my friends..

Having stayed at Kona Bali Kai around 15 years ago, it was a fairly known entity for us. Mike’s place was well equipped and he carefully communicated with us about the stay, even calling to make sure everything was good with the condo. The bathrooms have been nicely renovated and although we didn’t use the kitchen much it was well equipped for coffee and everything we needed. They also have a nice selection of beach gear which we didn’t put to much use having brought some of our own. We enjoyed snorkeling at Two Step and Captain cook monument (bring lots of water for the hike out) and we really enjoyed “discovering” the beaches on the Kohala coast. Punaluu was also worth the drive.

We had a great stay at this property. The Condo was clean and well equipped. We had a bit of trouble with the door lock upon our arrival, but we called Mike and he was very helpful in helping us. He called back later to make sure all was well. The views from the balcony are amazing, and you can go to sleep with the sounds of the ocean waves. We would highly recommend this property.
