What could you say negative about an oceanfront property that has everything you need and an always interesting view from the deck. We have stayed in several different units at Kona Bali Kai over the last 15 years - this is the best. Love how the kitchen has been redone. Considering the unit is right on the ocean and at the mercy of the salt sea spray, it is in fabulous shape.

We have been staying at Renee’s unit for years. It feels like a second home to us. We spend most of our time on the lanai. The view is fabulous. This year the whales decided to put on a show. The surfers are fun to watch, also. The unit has everything you could possibly need. Beach chairs, boogie boards, cooler for the beach. The kitchen is the best stocked one I’ve ever been in. The bed is very comfortable. We sleep to the sounds of the ocean every night. Our return flight was canceled and Renee was so helpful to us at an anxious time. Thanks Renee. Stop looking and just book this property now. You can thank me later!

This is the 4th time we have stayed here and it is always a wonderful experience. We never miss a sunset and the condo is always stocked so nice with all the little extras you need to make the stay great. Renee is always on top of everything and always communicative. We are coming back next year and can’t wait!

Thanks again Renee for your hospitality and allowing us the privilege of staying in your lovely condo during our vacation. The condo has everything you need during your stay except groceries. It's wonderful that previous guests leave their condiments and surplus provisions for the next guest. We really appreciate it and hope the guests checking in after us appreciate the "pay it forward" approach. It's nice to have coffee available as soon as you wake up in the morning before making your trek out for groceries. We spend a lot of time at the condo because of the amazing views from the lanai. We saw turtles in the water and suntanning on the beach below; dolphins doing their swim by and jumping and frolicking in the water and of course, the majestic whales. More sightings than we've ever experienced before. Single whales but most spectacular is seeing mothers with their babies being protected by the escort whales. Babies breaching; momma tail slapping to keep boats and other whales at bay. You didn't even need binoculars to enjoy the magnificent display. We also really enjoy the pool on site to cool down on hot days. There is so much to see and do on the Big Island or as little as you like. We absolutely love it here which is why we've been vacationing on the Big Island since 2011. We've been staying at the Kona Bali Kai since 2012 and love this condominium property. We've stayed at Renee's condo three times now and are looking forward to returning in 2025. Aloha!

One of the very best places we have ever stayed (and this is our third time staying). Wonderful views, the flat has everything (extremely well-equipped), very easy check-in, and the owner (Renee) is lovely to work with. excellent communication. A Perfect stay. Highly highly recommended. Will stay again!

We stayed 15 nights in this wonderful unit and could not have been happier with our choice!! From the moment you walk in and see that view from the lanai you can feel your body relaxing. The unit has everything you will ever need and then some for a wonderful stay. The kitchen is very well stocked and so were each bathroom. Be sure to look in bathroom cabinets because we found a few very useful items either left by owner or previous visitors. Like bandaids, neosporin and bactin! There was also some reef safe sunscreen (we left some of ours too) Loved the hard sided cooler, beach towels,beach chairs and umbrella. We took them on our adventures every day. The unit is very comfortable from the beds to the couches. Think we only used the indoor table for Thanksgiving because the table on the lanai was so great. Loved watching the surfers in the morning while eating breakfast. It's a quick drive into Kona and all the great eateries and a good base to start your daily adventures from. The owner was very responsive to all my emails before and during our stay. Will be back for sure!

We came here to celebrate our 20th wedding year anniversary!! This is our second time staying here and we are going to keep coming back. If you are looking for a place to relax and unwind look no farther than here. This has all the amenities you can ask for. The kitchen is very well stocked. The best part is having beach chairs and an umbrella. If this was not available you will not stay long at the beaches. Parking is available on site! Popular local restaurants and beaches are nearby. The lanai and the view is going to blow your mind away. You are going to see great sunsets. You are going to see surfers mornings and evenings. The sound of the ocean was the best part, we had the best sleep ever so relaxing. So what are you waiting for book this condo!

My daughter and I had a GREAT stay at Kona Oceanfront condo. Every night we watched the sunset from the lanai and were lulled to sleep by the waves hitting the shore beneath us. The condo was super well appointed and we took advantage of the Beach towels , chairs and umbrella. Loved the condo and location! Kim K

We really enjoyed our stay. Inspiring view with beautiful sunsets. Breakfast on the deck looking at the ocean and sleeping in a comfy king sized bed listening to the waves were the highlights. Well stocked kitchen and great location.

Very clean condo, convenient location to downtown Kona, lots of useful items stocked (items for the kitchen and going to the beach, etc.). The first aid kit was particularly helpful during the visit.

Our new favorite condo! We love Kona Bali Kai. First time staying at 411 at many more to come!

It’s hard to find a 2 bedroom and 2 full bath unit that is reasonably priced. Add to that a beautiful view right on the Pacific Ocean and that describes just how good this property is. The kitchen has anything you might need. The lanai is expansive and beautiful. One of, if not the best, rental properties we have ever stayed in.

August 2023
The condo was great! pros: view was unbeatable, very clean, extremely well stocked, easy to get in and out, good parking, decent pool, A/C for sleeping (didn't need it at other times), owner's info and communication was wonderful and detailed, access was easy cons: street side bedroom was a little loud until about 10 due to traffic and people hanging out, office on property was not staffed most of our visit therefore security and assistance was not really present (we didn't need them but could be a problem) Overall, this was a terrific rental and we would definitely stay here if we ever decided to take the long flight to Hawaii again. Highly recommend!


Dan D.
August 2023
To be quick: super cozy and convenient location, and an amazing waterfront. I can't imagine another condo being as well stocked (kitchen, beach, etc.) Personally, I would be highly suspicious of any non-perfect reviews for this place. We would absolutely stay there again!

July 2023
Enjoyed our stay in this well-furnished, very well-equipped unit. Spent hours watching turles and reef fish from the lanai where we also had a table with a view for sunsets. Woke up one morning to enormous full rainbow over the ocean, and we saw moonlight reflecting on the water two nights. Plenty of beach towels, a cooler, lots of stuff for the beach. From sharp kitchen knives to storage containers, kitchen was set up really well. Very easy communication with property manager. Great stay.


Jez D.
July 2023
We had a magical two week stay in this delightful unit. It was clean and in good repair, the kitchen was very well stocked, and everything you would need for a great day at the beach was available to use too. We enjoyed all of our meals on the lanai, watching the surfers during the day, those sunsets, though, just take your breath away. Beautiful view!

This condo has everything you need. It is fully stocked. It was clean and comfortable. The ocean breezes were great during the day and no need for ac. The views are so beautiful but the sunsets, wow! Great location. Would highly recommend and stay here again.


Cindy N.
June 2023
Centeral location close to Kona's main street. Good beaches and activities close by. We loved the view from the lanai, and the sound of the surf. There were always surfers, paddleboarders going by. We enjoyed he tidal pools out front and the condos indoor pool and hot tub. Very nicely decorated condo, we loved the Hawaian theme.

Renee was absolutely wonderful to work with. She literally supplies almost everything you need, just as if you were in your own home. I wish we had done inventory prior to going to buy food for our stay. She had all of the staples and then some covered. I hope we can go back soon.

We had a fabulous visit! The condo is located right on the beach which was perfect for us. All the extra amenities for the beach were awesome ( beach chairs, towels, ice chest/blue ice, boogie boards). The kitchen was very well stocked with more than we needed to cook, plus spices & condiments. The only issue we had was the AC did not keep us cool enough in the 2nd bedroom. We still enjoyed our stay immensely! Mahalo


William D.
May 2023
We had a great experience at this property. Communications were timely and thorough the property was exactly as advertised. The host made lots of little extras available to us, like beach toys, cooler, ice blocks, all sorts of things to make our stay more enjoyable. We did not know the area very well but this unit is conveniently located for tourist activities too. The local beach is pretty but a nice sandy beach is within easy walking distance (to the south). I would give six stars if I could.


Paula D.

Beautiful home! Beautiful view! Host thought of everything to make our stay pleasurable! Thank you, Renee!

This was unfortunately a short 4 night trip to the Big Island , but this rental was exactly what we wanted. Huge lanai right on the ocean for a relaxing get away. Just down the street from Kona shops and just a couple blocks from Ali’s Gardens. Marketplace. I would have been happy just shopping there vs. going into Kona town. Poke place and taco place there at the outdoor marketplace we’re great!! Renee was very nice and communicated throughout our trip. We’ve stayed at Vrbo’s in HawAii and Spain, this rental was by far the best stocked rental with very thoughtful supplies. I will return someday for sure and would reclining a heartbeat! Mahalo Renee for your Hawaiian hospitality !🌴🌺🌊

We are repeat visitors which says it all - we now won't stay anywhere else. The location is perfect - midway between Kona & Keauhou. Everything you could want is in the condo, even for an extended stay. A plus is the elevator and air conditioning, alto we stayed for 2 weeks in April and never needed to turn the air conditioning on. Linens are excellent quality, decor is attractive and parking is easy. Then there is the huge lanai - what a view! Both the living room and bedroom open onto the lanai making it additional living space. As it is covered, even in the rain we watched surfers, turtles and small fish from our private lanai on the 4th floor. We would definitely recommend.


Marissa H.
April 2023
The view from Renee’s condo absolutely cannot be beat! Great amenities with the pool access and laundry in unit. The space was comfortable and clean, but our favorite part were the sunsets and falling asleep to the sounds of the ocean right outside our screen door. The unit has AC which is a great perk, but we never needed it. Convenient parking and great location right next to Da Poke Shack for the freshest poke on the island. We had a great stay!


Jean L.
April 2023
Beautiful place right on the ocean side in between down town and Keauhou bay. I was skeptical of the building layout pictures and thought it might be too congestion or noisy. Neither was an issue as we never heard our neighboors even the complex was populary full. All we have heard was the pleasant waves! Since the unit on the top floor, I can see not just the ocean but the moon from my bed too! Very well built building with cover parking looking to the ocean and covered walk way, so you don't get wet going in and out. Renee stocked the unit with all the menities you could think of and we really appreciated all the freebies drinks. The binocular was a real treat since I did not have mine. Never have we seen such a wide view balcony, where we spent most of our times when we were going visit other beaches. We visited Kona almost yearly and now Renee's place would be our first choice. The only hiccup but it's out of her hands was the fixing of the garage ceiling that closed the one way entrance and we had to get in and out by the one way exit, nerve-raking each time. Still it is a minor inconvenient for 3 days but nothing outshine this gorgeous unit. We hope to be back again soon!

We stayed at this lovely appointed oceanfront condo for about 17 days in March 2020 and just returned home from our stay March 1 to April 3, 2023. Rene, the owner, is an extreme pleasure to deal with from booking until departure. Rene promptly resolves any issues that may arise during your stay. This is very comforting to know when renting a property. She truly cares about your stay being a truly pleasurable experience. We are looking forward to returning again in December 2023 for another 3 weeks and in March 2025 for another month. The condo is fully equipped with all you need during your stay. There is a washer/dryer in the condo; a large cooler and freezer blocks; lots of beach mats and boogie boards and other water toys. It's wonderful to have the use of condiments left by previous guests and to be able to return the favor to newly arriving guests. The spectacular oceanfront lanai is graced with the likes of outrigger canoes paddling by; spinner dolphins swimming by; whales spouting and breaching and turtles in the waters or on the beach below. You can also enjoy surfers showing off their craft at the Banyon Beach next door. The amazing Kahaluu snorkel beach is only 10 min down the road. You can catch the Kona Trolley across the street and it will drop you off out front of the Kona Bali Kai. There is a lovely pool; hot tub and sunbathing lounge area in the condominium complex. We have been staying in the fabulous Kona Bali Kai condominium complex since 2012.

It’s been four long years since we’ve been to Renee’s condo. So nice to be back. The view can’t be beat. Right on the ocean. We love listening to the sounds of the ocean while sleeping or hanging out on the huge, private lanai. There is everything you need. From kitchen supplies and condiments to every beach supply you could think of. Whales were the highlight of our trip. Lots and lots of them! I had quite a few problems with VRBO and Renee was there every step of the way to help solve them all. Until next year!

We stayed at 411. Incredible place with breathtaking sunsets. Very well equipped to accommodate all types of travelers. Close to everything. Several nearby beaches for snorkeling. We took advantage of the luggage depot during the day of departure which allowed us to continue to visit without being cluttered with our suitcases. Thanks

This condo has a fabulous oceanside location and view. We enjoyed hearing the waves right outside the bedroom window at night. Although the condo complex is rather charm-free, the unit was very tastefully and thoughtfully appointed and spotlessly clean. The owner also provided really useful local information.


Jennifer C.
January 2023
Aloha! My husband and I had the pleasure of staying in this lovely, oceanfront fourth-floor, two-bedroom, two-bathroom condo for two weeks. You could hear the waves, even with the sliding glass doors to the lanai closed! With an old-time Hawaiian charm, we relaxed and lounged on the lanai and in the living room. We used the kitchen, and were impressed with how fresh the vegetables stayed in the Samsung refrigerator! We had a wonderful time, and would not hesitate to stay in this oasis of calm again in the future. Mahalo!

Had a great time at KBK. Renee has thought of everything with a truly well equipped condo. Amazing a views from the lanai. Did not need the A/C. We slept soundly each night hearing the crashing surf.


Jessica D.
October 2022
I highly recommend staying in condo 411 while visiting the Big Island, it is fabulous inside and out! We stayed here 8 nights and spent the majority of our time on the lanai. We watched the surfers everyday and saw lots of tropical fish and dolphins. The pool was nice, clean, and never crowded! We did not use the A/C because the breeze and ceiling fans kept us cool enough. Parking was easy and the condo is near the elevator which was nice. Everything you could need was provided and we felt right at home. Tons of kitchen, bath, and beach supplies were available for our use. Renee was in touch with us throughout our stay and we greatly appreciated her hospitality. Mahalo, Renee!

We stayed here before, and fell in love with it! Perfect for the two of us last time, but this time we had two different sets of guests. Kitchen was so well stocked! Beach items plentiful! But that bed right next to the Ocean… my favorite part! Oh and coffee out watching my surfer boys and turtles, and striped fish, yellow fish, etc… just LOVE this place!


Cari D.
October 2022
The condo was well stocked with everything we needed and had lots of little extras that made our stay more than comfortable. The absolute best part was sitting on the lanai and enjoying the waves, swaying palms, and the chorus of the birds. This truly is a little piece of paradise! Definitely would stay here again!


Dwayne L.
September 2022
This place was wonderful. We got to see turtles feeding in the shallow water daily right from our lanai. The water is so clear you can even see different types of fish swimming below the surface. There is a surf beach adjacent to the property where you can go surfing or boogie boarding or just watch all of the locals surf the waves. We spent several nights grilling right down by the beach watching the sunset. This place is absolutely amazing and would recommend it to anyone. Everything inside was clean and in good working order. The Rooms were clean and comfortable and we couldn’t have asked for a better experience.

This condo is close to many beaches and snorkeling places at Kona side. The big balcony is a plus. Most time we ate dinner on the balcony while watching sunset.

Condo was exactly as described. All needed amenities were available. Excellent location to explore Kona. Balcony views were amazing. Thanks for the wonderful stay.


Andrea S.
June 2022
This home was exactly as advertised. The view from the balcony was amazing at any time of day; we enjoyed watching the surfers and turtles while sipping coffee. The condo is a little older and has the normal love that comes from living in the salt air. But all was perfectly clean and there was not a single thing we thought we might need that we did not find in the condo....beach chairs, mats, umbrellas, sand toys, stacks of towels, binoculars!!, cooler and books. The kitchen was equally well supplied. The A/C was strong the couple of times we wanted it and there was plenty of hot water. We had one small challenge opening a door and Renee responded in a flash to help us out. All in all, we very much enjoyed our stay and would love to come again.


Sue C.
June 2022
Just steps from the ocean is this fully stocked condo that has everything you need for a perfect vacation. Beach umbrellas, boogie boards, beach chairs, snorkel gear, etc for a day at the beach! Or you could just stay home... with this panoramic view, you'll still feel like you're on vacation! Beautiful grounds, the best poke on the island (Da Poke Shack), and turtles on the beach. What more could you ask for. Renee is an amazing hostess. Always available, always accommodating. This was our 3rd stay here in 3 years and we love coming back! Mahalo... til we meet again!


Pam E.
May 2022
Amazing! I’m thankful I did my research:) My husband was the first one in the condo. He came to me and said “you did good.” It’s such a beautiful and peaceful place to be. Sunsets every night, nice breeze, we only used the AC 3 times in our 9 day stay. I’m a mom of 4, Girl Scout leader, husband was active duty, I believe in - better to have it and not need it vs need it and not have it. Let me tell you, the condo has everything you can imagine from bandaids to Qtips!!! Listen to Reneé they have everything!!!! We will be going back soon Thank You again Reneé it was an amazing time!!!

I already miss the sound of the crashing waves! The apartment is managed by the owner and is decorated as her home. The photos don’t do it justice! Renee keeps the home spotless, extremely well stocked and beautiful. There are a few condiments in the fridge and foods in the cabinets. Every dish you could want is available. The best feature is the set in covered balcony with great views of beachcombers and surfers. You are just 30 feet (and 4 floors) above the beach. We saw spinner dolphins, too. Sea turtles beach on the rocky shore but we missed them. The location is to the north end of the Kona strip, walkable to swimming beaches. It is also central to the Kona coast with some of the best beaches in the world. Renee keeps a closet full of boards, chairs, sand toys and other thinks you might need. Don’t mis the many National Park historic sites along the coast to understand the Hawaiian culture and history.


Cathy J.
April 2022
We could easily have spent our entire vacation at the condo. Starting with coffee and a good read on the lanai every morning, watching the surfers, turtles and porpoise, to soaking in the hot tub, swimming in the pool, exploring the tide pools and BBQing at night it was a perfect vacation. The condo is very comfortable and has everything you need to make yourself at home. We slept in the bedroom next to the lanai with the doors open every night, loving the breezes and sounds of the surf. This is an excellent choice if you're searching for a vacation rental.


Manisha A.
April 2022
Great property with amazing views! Renee has made the condo feel like home with the beach extras; such as towels, chairs, umbrellas & boogie boards! The extras in the kitchen, like plastic wrap & ziploc bags were so helpful to pack lunches and snacks for a day full of adventures! Sitting on the lanai with a morning cup of coffee was a perfect start to the day with a glass of wine to end the day! We loved it and hope to visit again!


Rene L.
April 2022
OMG! The moment we walk in it was home away from home. This place had everything you can imagined. The best part was the availability of beach chairs,umbrella,mats, and ice cooler. Last but not least the view and sound of the ocean was the highlight of the trip. Definitely coming back!

Perfect stay in a fantastic condo. Absolutely nothing was lacking and it completely exceeded our expectations!


Linda and Ken B.
April 2022
Superb accommodation right on Alii Drive midway between the town and Keauhou. This was one of the best equipped condos we have stayed in - everything you would need, even for an extended stay, was included. In March we didn’t need air conditioning as the cross breeze kept the condo at a good temperature. The bed was comfortable, covered parking was a bonus and Da Poke Shack on premises was very convenient. But the best feature was the lanai and the view - positively the best.


Jon K.
March 2022
Property was perfectly located to everything we wanted to do, during our stay on that side of the island. Very clean, and well stocked! Nothing like falling asleep to the sound of the ocean. Of all the wonderful things we did, and saw, one of my absolute favorites, was sitting on the balcony with my Kona coffee in the morning, just listening, enjoying the views, and watching the surfers! As for the sunsets from the balcony…..Wow, just Wow! Perfection!


Shelley J.
March 2022
Such an amazing place. The views and sounds of the ocean were phenomenal! We really enjoyed watching the surfers each morning from the lanai. Communication was excellent and the place was very clean and roomy enough for our family of 4. Mahalo for a wonderful stay!!

This is the 2nd time we have stayed in this condo. we stayed for a month in 2017 and for 6 weeks this year. It has everything you need to live in Hawaii. Lots of beach gear as well. The Lanai and the sound of the ocean are the highlight for sure. The listing photos are very accurate. We have booked again for next year.

Steve G.

This property was very, very nice! At first glance it seems plain and ordinary, but the view on the balcony alone is worth the trip! The sounds of the waves crashing on the shoreline were unbelievable, such a powerful yet soothing sound! The room itself was clean and kept well. We admittedly didn't spend much time in the room and spent more time on the balcony. Thank you for the opportunity to spend our time in Kailua-Kona in such a beautiful place! Steve and Stacey

We had a wonderful time. The Condo was perfect it had everything we needed and then some. We loved watching the surfers and turtles from the Lanai. We went parasailing, fishing and did a lot of snorkeling. Every where we went we were met with kindness. Can’t wait to go back.


Kristy G.
September 2021
This was by far the best rental experience I've had. Renee was very informative in her pre-arrival paperwork. The condo was very well stocked and clean and let's talk about the lanai! Such an amazing view to wake up to every morning while sipping on local coffee. Renee was VERY accommodating and easy to get in touch with when needed. I would stay at the condo again without thinking twice. In fact, I'm already considering another trip. Mahalo, Kristy

I tried and tried to find something needed that was not provided. Just when I thought I had discovered something needed but not provided, I opened another drawer and door and there it was! The view was not advertised but should have been. Priceless! We rented 3 condos for our kids and grandkids to share with us our 51st wedding anniversary. We could not have been more delighted with the experience. Thank-you Frank and Renee, for allowing us to stay at your condo for a trip of a lifetime.

What a wonderful find in Kona. This condo has it all, great location, close to some many things, amazing views, pool for the kids, turtles on the beach, did I mention the view?

This is a quiet top floor condo with AC about a mile from downtown Kona. We visited Ironman week and had a blast. We were grateful for the AC which many units don't have because it was a very hot and humid week. The condo is very nicely equipped, slightly dated (everything in Kona is) but value priced for the area. It has easy access to everything you want to do. The views off the lanai were top notch, we loved the space. We watched sunsets, surfers, and the beloved hona turtles all day. We would love to stay there again.


R&G S.
October 2017
We have been to the Big Island several times in the past few years. Our stay at Frank and Renee's condo has been the very best. Their home is very clean and well furnished. There is AC but we only used it once for 30 minutes to cool down the condo on a warm day. The rest of the time we were very comfortable with a great cross-breeze through the condo. The kitchen has all the necessary utensils, equipment, appliances and a well stocked pantry. In addition we used the beach towels, chairs, cooler, and umbrella --all in excellent condition-- for our snorkel trips. We loved the lanai and spent most of our time there. The furniture was very comfortable and the steps-to-the-ocean views and sunsets were fabulous. When we arrived we had a question about the internet, contacted Renee and she responded immediately. The fourth floor location was beyond our expectations and Kona Bali Kai is located conveniently to Kona (2 miles to downtown) and other activities but in a quieter residential setting. We will definitely stay here again. Mahalo, Renee!

The view from Kona Bali Kai #411 is the best in the entire complex, no obstructions at all. From the lanai we saw the sea turtles everyday. The unit was very clean and well stocked with supplies. In the master closet there was plenty of beach chairs, snorkel gear, umbrella, pool noodles, cooler, toys etc... In the other closets there was more than enough large beach towels, bath towels, extra bedding & pillows to make for a very comfortable stay. It was nice to have laundry facilities (including soap and fabric softener) right in the condo. There was also a nice laundry room downstairs should you wish to do several loads at one time. The furniture is very comfortable and there is plenty of room for 4 adults. The galley style kitchen was well equipped with every gadget imaginable, flat wear, dishes, pots & pans, table linens, mixing & serving bowls, small appliances (blender, microwave, hot pot, coffee maker & grinder including a back up coffee maker) more items than I can list here. The best part of the kitchen was the community pantry, where you could use a little and leave a little. It was nice not to have to purchase an entire bottle of vinegar for the 2 tablespoons I needed. Other items in the panty included spices, olive oil, 2 types of vinegar, teas, sugar/sugar substitute and pan spray and more. Quality dish/dishwasher soap, sponges, hand soap, paper towels, ziplock bags, foil, cling wrap, coffee filters, first aid kit etc... The refrigerator has a shelf with condiments that was very clean and all items are within date. It was nice to be able to leave coconut syrup, guava jelly, relish, bottles of Hawaiian water, etc...and not have to dump them out before leaving. I would recommend checking out the condo before you go shopping to see what is available for your stay. I am sure a few items change with every new guest. There are 3 very clean bbq's on the lawn, we never had to wait to grill. The complex felt very safe with a security guard on duty every night. When we arrived the front desk had already closed for the evening, the security guard promptly met us with our parking pass. The condo is close to town and there is a $2 trolley that picks up right across the street. You can even walk back to the condo from town if you happen to miss the trolly like we did! It is easy to lose track of time on this beautiful island. The owner was very kind and a pleasure to work with. Overall, a wonderful place to stay!

This condo is right on the ocean with spectacular views. The condo is equipped with everything we needed. A very beautiful place to stay. The view is untouchable with the sound of crashing waves just feet from the building. A+++

From the minute you enter the condo, you are surrounded by tasteful decorations and furniture, and a beautiful expansive view of the ocean directly from the lanai. The kitchen is well stocked with everything you would want for your culinary pleasure. Renee and Frank have provided a large assortment of beach items for your enjoyment. We have been coming back to this condo for almost 20 years and it just keeps on getting better.

Kona Bali Kai is an older resort. This particular condo is great! The lanai breathtaking! We lost count of how many turtles we saw. The amenities are great from beach chairs to umbrellas! Kitchen well stocked! We will come back! Thank you for sharing your Paradise, Renee! The Zellmer's 5/20-5/29

My daughter and I loved our stay at Kona Bali Kai. Our hosts provided everything we needed to enjoy a week on the Big Island and the property was lovely. The condo was roomy and it was great to each have our own bedroom and bath. But the best part was the lanai overlooking the beach and ocean. We enjoyed Kona coffee and breakfast every day and the occasional dinner on the lanai. Sunsets were spectacular. We were delighted to find everything from beach mats and towels to boogie boards, snorkeling gear, beach chairs, and more - perfect for our daily trips to the beach. Enjoyed the one-mile walk to Magic Sands and the beach there is lovely. The location made it easy to take day trips to Hilo and Volcanoes National Park from Kona as well as explore the Kona area. One highlight is the location of Da Poke Shack on the premises - best poke we ate anywhere on the island - and we tried it everywhere! I highly recommend this condo. It was comfy, spacious, and perfect for 2-4 people. The owners, Renee and Frank, were great - provided comprehensive information prior to the trip and promptly responded to my email questions.

This property is THE perfect spot for breakfast coffee, early sun shining on breaking waves... And sunset from the lanai is unimpeded. The kitchen is really well stocked. The location requires a car and the unit is a bit dated. But it was perfect for us!!!

Really a home away from home. Great location with ample parking & zero stress. Eat breakfast on the balcony (like we did) and watch the waves come in!

Really lovely location -- the lanai is directly over tide pools where we saw turtles every afternoon. The condo is clean and superbly appointed -- condiments in the refrigerator, beach supplies for renters' use, and a comfortable, relaxing environment. When we first arrived, the internet wasn't working, but I emailed the owner and she replied promptly. The issue was fixed right away. We truly enjoyed our stay here and would love to go back!

My wife and i celebrated our 44 wedding anniversary in this condo. This place has everything you could want and more. Unbelievable ocean views of the the surfers and sea turtles. The sunsets are amazing! We had dinner most evenings on the spacious lanai. Rene and Frank have the place stocked with every thing you could want. And don't forget to try Da Poke Shack down stairs. Thank you for an unforgettable time!!!!!!

We have spent a lot of time on the islands and this is the perfect spot, makes me wish we didn't already have a time share. The kitchen is small~I don't cook so I don't care :). The master is a good size and opens to the lanai which is great for sleeping, no street noise and the breeze is fantastic. The lanai is generous in size which is where I spent most of my time reading and watching the waves, turtles, fish, surfers and so on. Everything you could want for the beach or cooking (if you happen to do that sort of thing :) ) is available and of good quality, even games and laundry soap. I appreciate that there are spices and condiments available, unlike our timeshare and I was glad I could leave some unopened food there instead of tossing it. I think the only thing I would change is having a walk in shower available. Thanks so much for a great condo!

My husband and I have stayed several times at the Kona Bali Kai. The ocean front condo building is an amazing location. This was our first time staying in this unit and it was wonderful. From start to finish, Renee was very easy to deal with and really helpful. The condo itself is fantastic. Very clean and well prepared for our arrival. The kitchen especially is really well stocked. I liked all the placemats and linens to set a pretty table on the lanai. I can't recommend this condo highly enough - we have already booked our return trip for next year!

Renee is a wonderful and responsive host via emails, info sent by mail, and follow up right after check in. The woman who oversees the cleaning and maintenance, who we had a chance to run into as well, is also wonderful, and they do a very thorough cleaning job. The condo is fabulous! We had a very full itinerary for our 11 days on the Big Island, but one of my best memories is sitting on the balcony.... top floor overlooking the ocean... just doesn't get any better... the sounds of the surf, the sunsets, watching the surfers.... it was so magical. And the sounds of the surf.... it was so relaxing having our bed right next to the open doors and being lulled to sleep by the surf. And the cross breeze was superb... no need for A/C at all, even though it's equipped just in case. This condo is so well stocked. For the beach there were chairs, mats, umbrella, boogie boards, towels, coolers. In the kitchen there were all kinds of staples and condiments and any kind of cooking item you can think of, and then some. It's really conveniently located to Kona and west coast activities, and covered parking to keep your car cool. There is even a spectacular view of the ocean as you pull into your parking. Some of our highlights & recommendations to share for trip planning... Kayaking in Kealakekua Bay with a whale and spinner dolphins, and then snorkeling with a lot of fish near Captain Cook Monument - this all in kayaks rented from Bayside Adventures; Swimming with dolphins and seeing & hearing whales with Roberta Goodman, Jan, & Captain Kit; Snorkeling at Kahalu'u Beach Park; Body surfing & boogie boarding (and enjoying the beauty) at Kua Bay/Manini'owali Beach and Hapuna Beach; $40! massages at Aloha Massage Academy; Surfing lessons with Ian Foo and family / Hypr Nalu via starting at the simulator in his shop & then real action at Kahalu'u Beach Park; Great natural food market - Hilo Island Naturals; Lunch at Alii Buzz - best homemade veggie burgers and natural smoothies; Gear rental at Snorkel Bobs; (And when we stayed on the eastern side - Maku'u Farmer's Market, Volcano National Park / the Kilauea Iki Trail, Champagne pond, Akaka Falls, Mauna Kea (day hiking and night skies viewing). Didn't make it to Waipio due to dengue closure, but a suggested highlight from research as well). And back to Renee and Frank's condo.... the perfect base of operations for exploring all the amazing things on the Big Island, or the perf

This unit is perfect. Renee and Frank have thought of everything.From condiments in the kitchen to everything you would need to go to the beach. The best part of the unit is the lanai. You can practically touch the ocean!! We've already booked again for next year!!

In real estate it is all about location - and this location is perfect! We spent practically all of our waking hours here on the lanai, where we watched turtles, whales, spinner dolphins, surfers, and sunsets. All were awesome! Renee and Frank have stocked the condo well for their guests, providing many amenities. We enjoyed our time here tremendously.

We just can’t wait to come back and stay in this condo. That really sums it up. Renee has done a wonderful job ensuring this place is stocked up from beach gear to pretty much anything you would need in the kitchen. She was so attentive to our needs and a breeze to work with. We stayed with another couple and were both amazed at the high end furnishings and extreme overall cleanliness of the place. Of course, the condo is right on the water. You really don’t understand how amazing this location is by just looking at the pictures. Open the sliding door and you can hear the waves all night long. Watch sea turtles and the sunset from the lanai. We will recommend this place to everybody.

We have been to Hawaii many times and stayed on the Big Island about 10 times. Usually I like to stay at different places to get a better feel of the island, but must confess I think we found a home. Very clean and well supplied. We stayed here for four weeks in October and November and could not be more pleased with the unit. Thank you Renee for having us as your guests. BEST views on the Big Island. We will be back!!!!

This is a very amazing condo. We lived here for a week. The condo is wonderfully located (we saw see turtles and dolphins from lanai) and has amazing view. It is extremely well organized. Renee's attention to little details of having all the amenities right is wonderful. This is one of the best VRBO condo we lived in.
