About Mike Watson

The owners enjoy running, swimming and scuba diving. Bird watching, snorkeling, and exploring the tide pools. Simply reading a good book on the lanai also can't be beat. What a great way to finish a hard day at the beach or snorkeling from the kayak... It truly does not get any better than this! Note: The owners are currently working in The Netherlands, but still find time to visit their condo four times a year.

Mike Watson purchased this condo in 2004

Why Mike Watson chose Kona Coast

The views and sunsets. The condo is set back 300 feet from Alii Drive so you have no traffic noise. The property is beautifully tropically landscaped and has several nice BBQ areas and picnic tables.

What makes this condo unique

Taking in a good book and soaking in the cool ocean breezes. Mixing up a great meal in the kitchen and fixing Mai Tai's for friends. Enjoying the comforts of a fully furnished, well stocked condo with a huge king size bed. Plus the condo is always well maintained and kept very clean and fresh. There is no place like it anywhere and we know you will love your stay at our condo.

Agreat place to stay.

  • 5 of 5

This property was very well stocked, very comfy, and very clean. My wife and I had a wonderful week here and we wished we could have stayed longer. We definitely recommend this condo for any one looking to stay in Kona.

Simple and Convenient!

  • 4 of 5

We stayed at the lovely Kona Bali Kai property recently, and it was so convenient for our trip needs. **Please be advised, tho, there is NO ocean view from inside/on the balcony of this condo**; the photos included in the post are from the same property, but you have to cross the street and walk to the other side of another property building to see the ocean. We did not expect frills or anything fancy. The decor was simple and tasteful, and the kitchen had everything you needed to prepare good meals at home, or just a quick bowl of oatmeal in the morning. The walk to town is just over 2 miles, so not terrible, but also not an easy stroll after dark as the main road is not well lit - definitely carry a flashlight!

The condo could use some updates in furnishings, but honestly for the price we paid we were very happy. There were a couple of convenience stores close by and parking was a breeze. We did not spend much time inside. The walls are thin, and you can definitely hear anyone upstairs who is heavy footed (we unfortunately had some very loud neighbors). The bedroom was very nicely sized, and the breeze and ceiling fans made it so comfortable to sleep at night, we didn't even need to use the air conditioning. Also, it was great to be in a condo where the bedroom faced a wooded area, which gave us some extra privacy.

As for communication with the owner, Mike was always very quick to respond to any questions we had and really set us up for a great trip with tons of good recommendations. While this may not be a "we HAVE to stay here again" kind of place, it was absolutely perfect for this trip.

Owner's Response: Thanks for the feedback on the condo and great to hear you had a nice time on your trip and enjoyed the condo. The Kona Bali Kai has 7 buildings, including one direct ocean front building. We have three condo's in that building. The condo you stayed in normally has some ocean views, however the large Banyan tree needs to be trimmed as it now blocks the views. The tree should be trimmed this spring. We hope you will try one of our other ocean front condo's next time to fully enjoy the sounds and sights of the ocean from the condo. Mahalo, Mike

The condo was faultless. It was clean & stocked beyond expectations. Great value for self caterers.

  • 3 of 5

The condo was faultless for the self caterer like us. The bed was comfortable in a quiet room with great airflow. Mike provides essential beach going stuff like chairs, towels & coolers. The beach opposite was not suitable for us 'ancients' who are past climbing over rocks to enter the water. We had to drive to suitable beaches. The condo was too far from the main town to stroll comfortably for pre dinner drinks or dinner which we love to do. Having said all of that we had a great time & we realise now that we needed to stay longer to experience all that The Big Island has to offer. In summary, if you are of an age where you like to stroll to the nightlife then this location does not suit. The trolley bus is infrequent at 2 hourly intervals. You do need a car. Take nothing away from Mike's condo, it's perfect but it does not have an ocean view.

Owner's Response: Thank you for your feedback on your stay in Kona. As stated in all the information about this condo it is 2.9 miles from the little town of Kona. We always recommend that all of our guests rent a car as the public transportation is very limited and infrequent on the Big Island. Note: We have three other condos at the Kona Bali Kai that are direct ocean front is that what the guest is seeking. Mahalo, Mike Watson

We were happy

  • 5 of 5

We were very happy with the condo. It is very well stocked. The full size washer/dryer were key as this was the second island we visited during our two weeks in Hawaii and was very convenient. The owners clearly care very much about maintaining a nice place for visitors. The pool was nice, but is in need of some repairs and an upgrade. Signage indicated a new pool deck would be worked on beginning in May, 2017. We would not hesitate to stay there again if we go back to The Big Island.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thank you for your comments on the condo. Indeed in mid 2017 the pool at the Kona Bali Kai will be repaired and re plastered and new decking will be installed. We hope to see you again at the condo. Mahalo, Mike Watson

Perfect Location

  • 5 of 5

The location of condo is perfect - away from the busyness of the down town centre but close enough to walk or bike. South of the condo there is a shopping centre with grocery, pharmacy, restaurants, theatre and a great little market on Saturday mornings where we purchased the best banana bread and cookies! The condo itself is very well equipped and a good size for two. We stayed a month and were quite comfortable. It was also very reasonably priced. I would recommend this condo. Thanks Mike, we had the best time!

Perfect place to launch your adventures from

  • 5 of 5

It was exactly what we needed. Small but perfect for two people, the king bed had plenty of space. Place was clean and well furnished. It is on the main downtown strip so it is perfect for going shopping or to all the different venues that are downtown. Mike was quick to respond to my emails and questions and the room price is very fair. We would stay there again if we come back to visit. Thanks for sharing your condo with us and Aloha

Owner's Response: Aloha and many thanks for the comments. We do our best to keep the condo well equipped and stocked. We provide a dishwasher, full size washer and dryer, microwave, two televisions and a king size bed - this is very rare for a one bedroom condo anywhere in Kona. We hope to see you again at the condo. Mahalo, Mike Watson
