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.
Everything was great!
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.
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!
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!
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.
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!
Nice, superb sunset, surf right in the front.
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.
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.
We were amazed at the most Beautiful sunsets every night! Lots of amenities, comfy beds, everything needed for a Hawaiian Vacation!
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
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.
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.
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!
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.
This is the third time we have stayed at this Kona Bali Kai location.. As always, it does not disappoint! We highly recommend staying there and Renee is such a pleasure to communicate with. Can’t wait till we come back again next year!
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.
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!
This was our third stay in this condo. We have booked again for next year. We love this spot. No need to repeat what has already been said. The reviews say it all.
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.
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!
Amazing ocean views, very well stocked and clean condo, great customer service from Renee. We will be back!!
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!
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!
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.
Renée is very responsive and communicative. The location has an amazing view. The unit was well stocked! Make sure you look in all the drawers and cabinets in the unit before you go to the store.
Renee’s condo was perfect. I would highly recommend it to all travelers!!
Rene was one of the best host we have had in many years. We stayed 5 weeks and she checked on us to make sure everything was good. She is the ultimate host. Have already booked next year
Condo was exactly as described. All needed amenities were available. Excellent location to explore Kona. Balcony views were amazing. Thanks for the wonderful stay.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
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!
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!!
Good location, comfortable condo on the ocean, considerate owners, highly recommended.
Everything went well 😊
This was the second time we have stayed in this particular condo and once again it did not disappoint! Renee is absolutely wonderful to communicate with and the condo has everything you need to have an amazing stay. We just can’t get enough of the gorgeous sunsets at night and we look forward to staying again next year!
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.
We enjoyed our stay in Kona at this beautifully decorated and functional condo.
Will be back !
Great location! Condo had so many extras and the Lanai was amazing. Listening to waves crash at night was perfect.
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.
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.
Not only had the amazing view we wanted but came equipped with beach chairs, boogie boards, umbrellas, snorkeling stuff. Was a great experience.
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.
