About the Property

Condo, Studio, 1 Bath, (Sleeps 2)

170 feet from shoreline.....And some of the *only* shoreline that features a beach, tide pools and ocean side lawns complete with loungers!
Island owners' personal seaside getaway with ocean views from the sofa, bed and balcony.
Beautifully maintained older unit--Complete renovation in late 2012. Latest “Upgrade” —March 2017.

Stylishly appointed, this 4 room studio suite (478sq.ft.) was designed with comfort foremost in mind. Commodious seating, 500+TC bedding, a Simmon's Cal-King mattress (w/foam topper!) and quality bath linens are just a few of the “upscale” amenities. The cool blue and stone colored walls compliment the contemporary furnishings, clean lines, hardwoods, bamboo flooring and oriental carpets. Waves play in the floor to ceiling beveled mirror wall panel. The Asian art found throughout the apartment (museum puttied in place to prevent accidents) lends an exotic air to the décor.
The same care to detail is shown throughout the rest of the suite. An oriental folding privacy screen placed in front of the opened door (heavy high security screen door w/serious lock) gives you air flow on 3 sides~~ah, those island breezes. This is rare in a condo. Combined with the efficient ceiling fan, you’ll find little need for the air-con. Of course, air con is available at all times.
Settle in on the super comfy Italian love-seat, put your feet up on the ottoman and watch a little NETFLIX (on the DVD player) on those "stay-in" evenings. AFTER you catch the sunset!
*For those of you celebrating a special occasion: Rest assured that we go the extra mile to insure that it is, indeed, a *very special* occasion. Dark chocolate covered macadamia nuts and a NICE chilled Chardonnay will be waiting for you to enjoy.

 'The Kona Bali Kai'.  Midway down Ali'i Drive is famous surf spot 'Banyans'  (your view, as pictured in the slide show), adjacent to the Kona Bali Kai main building. (2 miles north to 'Restaurant Row' and the Village, 3 miles south to Keahou Bay and less than a mile to “Magic Sands” beach.) Across and just south from the main building, 12 unit 'Building 3' is easily accessed and has a 'laid back' feeling not usually associated with condos.  The unit is on the slightly elevated (10 ft. above sea level) first floor (easy access and good views of the ocean over 2 lane Ali'i Drive), with private residences on the north and east, a 'Mom and Pop' style market (w/ spirits) on the south and the Pacific Ocean to your west.
