Kona Bali Kai condo description
Our 800+ square feet Kona Bali Kai 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom + Full Width Lanai Condominium is DIRECT OCEAN FRONT with an underhand rock toss to the sea wall. You can't get any closer and stay dry. If you want DIRECT Ocean Front, next to the most popular Island surf break in a TOTALLY remodeled unit at a great price look no further.
Our August 2013 purchased condo is undergoing a complete (demo'd to block walls and being rebuilt over a 4 month period) $75,000 full remodel with the work managed by the retired Project Manager Owner. Expected completion is mid December, 2013. New custom cherry cabinets in Kitchen/Baths, Matching Granite slab counters, new front walkway windows and rear Pella Lanai sliders, new custom tiled showers, new patterned floor tile in greatroom, updated electrical system/new breaker panel, ~ 40' flat panel TV, DVD player, Quality Casablanca All Weather Fans in each major room and a new 12,000 BTU AC unit. We also provide free long distance calls to the Mainland. Renovation progress photo's are available by inquiry. As of Nov. 23rd interior painting and startup of tile flooring install are in full swing - New Appliances are scheduled for Dec. 4th delivery.
The famous (site of frequent competitions) Banyan Surf Break is just offshore from our unit so you'll enjoy watching the surfers while you relax on the full condo width lanai and check out a frequent turtle (Honu) visitor in the natural lava pond directly in front of the unit. Our unit is on the convenient 2nd building level with quick access to free ground level parking and no steps to apartment if you prefer to use the elevator.
The Living Room and Master Bedroom each utilize new, double pane, low e, floor to ceiling Pella sliders accessing the spacious ocean front lanai. The new sliders are useful to control the ocean surf noise level in the condo by opening or shutting the doors. Custom shoji type sillouette sliding glass panels (Unique to Kona Bali Kai) separate the Greatroom from the MBR.
The coastline in front of Kona Bali Kai has accessible tide pools and sandy areas - perfect for poking around on a lazy afternoon. Free propane fired outdoor barbeques are available for guests.
White Sands County Park is 1 mile south, Kahaluu snorkeling beach/bay is 2 miles south and there is a great small hidden beach a short walk away I'll tell you about in my client letter upon booking.
We live nearby (1 mile) at an ocean view condo which we managed as a vacation rental for 10 years before retiring and moving to Kona. We understand how important our guests vacation time is and do our utmost to provide a positive experience.

Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: Lynn Noffsinger (retired Intel Engineer) and Sharon Noffsinger (retired Educator) were able to achieve a long term goal by moving to Hawaii in early 2009. Our nearby residence (1 mile south from Kona Bali Kai) was a successful VRBO vacation rental for 10 years from 1999 to 2009. We understand the importance of our clients vacation time and make every effort to provide an outstanding value. Many of our former clients were repeat visitors or friends and family of previous clients. Except when off island we accomplish all turnovers ourselves to insure the condo is perfect for your arrival. This is our 2nd purchased ocean front unit @ Kona Bali Kai. Lynn set up a special IRA fund which allowed him to purchase this unit directly and market under the name of Konanoff LLC but after all the legalese its just Lynn and Sharon's 2nd great unit.
Why the Owner Chose Kona Bali Kai:
Direct oceanfront next to a world class surfbreak with the best climate in the world. What else can we say other than how do you spell Pina Colada??
The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
First you need to make the impossible choice of enjoying the lanai view or hop in the rental car and go exploring. For lunch why not utilize the ocean front barbeques or check out the small 'POKI Shack' lunch spot just down the steps next to the lobby for some island 'soul' food and a brewski?? Poki is the island version of Ahi (Tuna) sushi. Across the street is a convenience store for those forgotten condiments, drinks and snacks. A concierge is available in the lobby most days to help you plan excursions and local events. Free island bus service is available in front of the building. Too many options, not enough time - recommend enjoying the lanai view, watching the surfers wipe out and say hello to the Turtles while you think about it. There is a small, secluded sand beach a short walk away I'll tell you about it in my Guest letter.
