    Joyce says ‘Stunning home. Stunning location. Stunning. Stunning. Stunning.’
    The pictures of this home are excellent and convey the home beautifully. The feeling you have when you walk in the door and realize that everything is exactly as pictured, and the sense of home that you have immediately, is what is longed for in a holiday.

    We stayed in this wonderful home in early May and fell into the warm aloha at once. The rental process was excellent, the owner a pleasure to deal with. The directions supplied made the house an easy and stress free drive from the airport. The attention to detail is evident, from the home, to the pool, to the landscaping, to the very detailed introductory booklet covering all aspects of your stay in the home and the area.

    We toured the island, which was amazing. We enjoyed the surrounding beaches, shopping, cafes, etc, which was wonderful. We came home each night to our own personal very private oasis, which was spectacular. We played games in the great room, looking out over the pool and the city below. We swam under the stars to the sound of the waterfall, with the volcano feature casting a mesmerizing glow. We lazed on pool floats provided, under the warm Hawaiian sun. We sat quietly and reconnected, away from the distractions of the busy world. We embraced all that the house has to offer, physically and mentally. It was shear perfection.

    I would, without hesitation, recommend this home for family, friends, or couples stays.

    Niels says ‘Wow, this is Paradise!’
    I went to Kailua Kona to take part in the Ironman and wanted somewhere quiet I could relax and prepare myself. This was the perfect place. Walking in the door and being greeted by the magnificent sea vista was just stunning.

    The apartment had everything I needed for my 2 week stay and was immaculately maintained. The apartments are close enough to walk into Kona if you wish, or catch one of the trolley buses that pass. (I did not bother with hiring a car)

    During the day it was quite cool to see a pod of Spinner Dolphins cruise past. The shoreline is only a 100 yards from your lanai. At night I joined others in the favourite pastime of sitting in a deck chair by the waters edge and watching the sun set with a cold beer.

    This is a stunning location. Nice and quiet and the owners a delight to deal with. I can't wait to return!!

    William says ‘Sweet studio condo in Kailua-Kona area’
    What a sweet studio.We could see and hear the ocean. It was very quiet and private. It's on the upper floor of two floors and at the south end of a quite large complex. The gardens are lovely in the center area and the cooing of the zebra doves was wonderful. The owner was very available and welcoming if we had any questions. The south larger pool was quite cool, though refreshing after getting in. The north pool is the quiet pool and I appreciate having that option.
    Only thing we missed was having a sandy beach in walking distance. We had a wonderful relaxing stay.

    Jason says ‘Great View Worn out Condo!’
    Upon entering the condo the first thing you see is the salt stain through the sliding glass door almost covering the right side. Has all original built 1974 cabinets. There are stains on countertops with nicks all over. Several broken items such as fan, clock, garbage disposal. The unit has no dishwasher and when the garbage disposal is seized makes it difficult to impossible to clean dirty dishes. I sent owner an email letting him know of the broken items. I explained we needed to use a plunger to drain the kitchen sink because the disposal was seized. The breaker(s) were tripped. Which makes one wonder if housekeeping is washing dishes. NO! Or able to properly clean. NO! When the owner got back, he says and I quote”you won’t be charged for broken items maybe you should enjoy the sunset.” We had an issue moments later with a shower leak coming through the vent upstairs which I had to coordinate with upstairs owner Kona Bali Kai maintenance to troubleshoot the problem. We solved the problem. Next morning having breakfast on lanai we experienced someone either vomiting and cleaning vomit off upper lanai dripping onto our lanai. Sent video while it happened to housekeeper which conversation threaded to owner. Bed is small and uncomfortable.(Thin old mattress). No air conditioning. No screen door on entry to allow trade winds to blow through to cool unit down. My wife and I stayed 17 nights there. Yes beautiful sunsets. But that’s it. The wife and I are very open minded people. We weren’t expecting the Taj Mahal. I hate to leave a poor review, we have stayed at several condos on this island and many others but this was by far the worst. In reading the guestbook, other guests seem to have similar issues. With covid it dates back for years. I understand the owners were stuck abroad. Unfortunately, they didn’t seem to care much about trying to fix anything or a simple thank you for our assistance fixing issues. This is our vacation! We seemed to spend much of it dealing with problems with condo. Sorry but this stay was not good. Unless the owner does a complete makeover, I definitely would not stay there again.

  • Kona Bali Kai 317 Direct

    Kailua Kona: Kona Bali Kai: Vacation Rental
    2 BDR • 2 BA • Sleeps 4 • #218314
    Provided by Property Manager
    We had a very nice stay at the Kona Bali Kai unit 317 in April 2017. It's a 2 bedroom condo approx. 5 minutes drive from the center of Kailua (Kona). I believe it has a max. occupancy or 4 persons as the wicker sofa in the living room is not a pull-out bed.
    The master bedroom facing the ocean is excellent, with full on ocean sounds and views 24-7, but the second bedroom which has windows that face busy Ali'i Drive, is quite noisy with traffic sounds from 5am until 11pm at night and could be quite a problem if a person is a light sleeper. The noise would probably not disturb a child as most children sleep pretty soundly, but I found it quite a distraction.
    I thought that the double sized beds in both bedrooms a little small as most couples are accustomed to a larger size bed these days.
    This unit is a little dated, but clean and well cared for. The kitchen appears to be original as well as the stove and fridge, but everything works and has been kept clean. The kitchen is fairly well equipped. We s

    Gary says ‘Look No Further!’
    Absolutely top notch!
    From the initial contact to followup, this owner was spectacular. The home far exceeded our expectations for as little as we paid. The kitchen blew us away with all the amenities. Many rentals only include a microwave and hotplate. Not here! Top of the line built-ins, countertop appliances and utensils were all included. You could entertain in this place. We didn't eat out once, saving hundreds.

    Living and dining room were tastefully decorated and included a huge flat panel TV in the living room. I didn't even notice the flat screen in the bedroom until we were packing to leave.

    Extremely comfortable beds and also tastefully decorated bedroom and bathrooms.

    The lanai had complete living and dining sets to enjoy the sunsets. Solar power, washer and dryer, and a very secure feel is what you'll be welcomed with. Minutes from the airport and Kailua Kona Town. We will be back! Mahalo to the owner for the best accommodation we've ever had (and we've been around the world). If you're thinking about this home, look no more. You won't find a better deal.

    Lynne says ‘Lovely Stay!’
    We had a wonderful time staying at this property. This property was everything it was advertised to be. It was large and spacious and there was plenty of room for our three adult children and ourselves. We enjoyed being on the main floor and the large wrap around lanai. The grounds of this complex are beautifully kept and we really enjoyed the peacefulness of sitting on the lanai enjoying the surroundings. We also enjoyed the pool. The stove and dishwasher in our unit did not work properly, but that was okay because I am not used to cooking on vacations and we usually went out for suppers! We would definitely consider booking this place again if we were to return to the Big Island. Thank you!
    Owner Comments
    Thank you for your wonderful compliments. We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed your vacation with us. We appreciated you letting us know about the oven and dishwasher. These appliances were immediately checked out by a service representative and are now working properly for our guests.

    Our family of 4 adults stayed here and had a very enjoyable stay. The house was clean and comfortable. The kitchen was well equipped and everything worked. The view from the front porch was as in the picture on the site. It was quiet in the community and this was a good location for exploring the island and so close to Kona- Kailua. We would stay here again.

    Simon says ‘Large but Tired’
    Good location and spacious living with large lanai. 2 BR, 1Q and 3 single beds. Good clean pool. Only minimal sea view around other condos who overlooked the unit, minimal privacy. No security, none of the lanai doors, 5 of them, locked and they were easily accessible from street steps. Front door access locked but we did not leave valuables in the unit. Fridge water filter and ice maker rusted, coffee machine worked but rusted, paint work and decor very tired, BR slat curtains had to be taped up. Lanai furniture inadequate for us to be able to enjoy the great space, etc. Magic Sands Beach walk 10+ minutes on main Alii Drive and unfortunately during our stay storm waves closed the beach for swimming. Car a must to access town, shopping, beaches, etc.

    This is a fantastic condo located just south of town center. 10 minute walk and you are in the heart of Kona. Perfect location. The unit is well appointed, comfortable beds, good linens, towels, etc. There are also body boards, chairs, umbrella etc. in the closet, just make sure you clean the sand off before putting back. USB chargers in bedrooms are a big plus. Overall great experience , you won't be disappointed!

    Overall our experience was excellent. This home has everything to make your stay in Hawaii perfect, The kitchen is well stocked with proper cooking and serving utensils. Also, the home provided some beach amenities as well. We really enjoyed the hot tub. the only thing that came as a surprise to us was that the master bedroom is detached from the main house. The location was very good as well and was close to shopping and "beaches" . Hard to find a sandy beach in Kona!
