Kona Bali Kai condo description

True Oceanfront Kona Condo Rental Units! One bedroom with 2 full baths. See my TWO bedroom oceanfront listing #357473. Both one and two bedroom units are only 30 feet from the ocean with incredible views from the lanai with stunning Hawaiian sunsets and surfers riding the waves. Kona Bali Kai Resort is on famous Banyans surfing beach on Alii Drive, just two and a half miles south of the quaint town of Kailua-Kona where you will find great restaurants and shopping. Banyans Beach, famous for its intermediate local surfing, is on the south end of the complex.
Enjoy watching surfers, whales, dolphins and turtles right from your own private 200 square foot lanai along with a breathtaking 180 degree view of the ocean. The units are so close to the ocean that you can watch turtles navigate the thundering waves as they come to shore on the Kona Bali Kai beach.

                  Car: Recommended

                  My Hawaii Vacation Rental is at the Kona Bali Kai Condo complex, 2 1/2 miles south of the quaint town of Kailua-Kona which has numerous shops and restaurants that line the beach.

                  Within walking distance only 1/2 mile north of the condo is Alii Gardens Outdoor Marketplace where you will find local arts and crafts and local farmers produce. Great place for shaved ice!

                  Right next door to the condo is a well known Banyans surfing beach where local surf, boogie board, long board surf and even do kayak surfing. From sun up to sun down it is fun to watch the surfers from the condo lanai. Two miles south of the condo is Kahaluu Beach Park which is one of the best snorkeling spots on the Big Island. Fed by a fresh water spring, up to 10 million gallons per day. These shallow waters are almost always calm, with colorful corals, rock formations, and 100+ species of fish. Swim with schools of colorful fish & green sea turtles in protected waters; don't forget your underwater camera.

                  Other Activities: Boogie Boarding, surfing, body surfing, ocean swimming, kayaking or kayak surfing, long board surfing, lava tube exploring, hiking to lava and volcano, helicopter rides over flowing lava, horseback riding, luau with local food and dancers, golfing, sunset sailing or dinner cruises, submarine adventure, deep sea fishing, ocean rafting, kayaking, snorkeling, scuba diving or snorkeling with manta rays...just to name a few.

                  Golf: Kona Country Club provides the perfect environment for golf. Situated in scenic Keauhou just 4 miles away from Kona Bali Kai my condo location in Kona on the Big Island of Hawaii. Kona Country Club features spectacular ocean and mountain views, excellent facilities and friendly service. Beautiful Hualalai Mountain protects us from the strong winds. One can always expect pleasant sunny skies and gentle ocean breezes. We are open to the public and have senior discounts.

                  Kona Country Club is conveniently located near hotels and condos. We feature a fully stocked pro shop, driving range, locker rooms, putting and chipping greens. Experience dazzling sunsets while dining at the Vista Restaurant serving Hawaiian and American cuisine for breakfast and lunch. The Vista Restaurant is also available for banquets.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2002

                  About the owner: As owner since 2002 I enjoy coming to Kona 3-4 times a year to maintain my units. Always gives me an great 'excuse' to enjoy this incredibly beautiful island.

                  Why the Owner Chose Kona Bali Kai:
                  My first trip to The Big Island was when I was 21 years old and I fell in love. Never then did I think I would be fortunate to own oceanfront property here.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
                  I go snorkeling with Sea Paradise EVERY time I come an sometimes two times. I love the early morning going over Saddle Road and the Botanical Gardens in Hilo are not to be missed. It is relaxing on the lanai watching the surfers. And I get all the books and magazine read that I don't have time for at home.
