Reviewer Comments:

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 spent most of our time out and about, but when we were in the condo we were on the lanai. The lanai is large and the view is outstanding, so naturally we ate our meals out there and read and relaxed in the afternoon sun. There's a popular surfing spot just to the side of the condo called Banyan Park, and there are surfers playing daily in the waves for our entertainment! The tide pools on the oceanfront side of the building have at least 5 different sea turtles feeding all day, so it was a joy to see them so close. This unit doesn't have Netflix or similar, but we did use the wifi successfully. We also enjoyed swimming in the pool in the evenings. The pool is rarely busy and often you'll have it all to yourself. All in all, we enjoyed our stay in 317....queen sized beds would have made our stay much more comfortable tho'.

Owner's Response: Just wanted to address two issues from this review. The bed in the master bedroom is a queen. The unit is set back from the street and if the windows are kept closed there should be minimal road noise. This is the only complaint received about road noise from the second bedroom. That being said I wish to thank the guests for writing what I feel is a fair and honest review. Aloha, Mgmt.

Reviewer Comments:

This is the third time my wife and I have stayed here (at Kona Bali Ki, not unit 317). This is our first time with kids, and in unit 317, previous time was about 2008 before we had kids. We love this place. In most of what I read about Kona Bali Kai, the vast majority of people that are disappointed in their stay book through the Kona Bali Kai itself and sometimes don't get the location they paid for or were promised. In this particular case, rest easy because if you are booking here, you know you're getting unti 317! If you are expecting a posh resort, where you lounge on the beach all day, look elsewhere. If you are looking where you can get million dollar views on a budget, this is a winner. Interior could use some updating, but it's not a huge deal. There's not exactly a ton of places where you can get this location and view for under $200 a night. Millers surf shop on site is great to rent snorkel gear and Da Poke Shop, also located on site has amazing poke, some of the best to be had on the island.

The property was wonderful. The unit is a little dated, however everything is clean and comfortable. The lanai faces the ocean and the view is fantastic. Nothing better than to fall asleep to the sound of the waves crashing on the shore.

Reviewer Comments:

Location is convenient and the view is lovely but there is no air conditioning. There are several fans but it was still way to hot to sleep comfortably or be indoors during the hotter parts of the day. The place could really use a deep cleaning but was fully stocked with anything you might need during your stay.

Owner's Response: Kona Bali Kai is not advertised as having A/C. Guests who require A/C should book a property that has A/C. For our other guests who have stayed in 317 the ocean breezes and fans have been sufficient to keep the unit comfortable. Mgmt.

Reviewer Comments:

We were comfortable in this nice condo, it had all the basics we needed plus some extras. The view over the water was spectacular and it was nice swimming in the evening at the pool. The cookware could be updated as some of the pans were scratched. It stayed plenty cool with the fans and I didn't feel I needed an air conditioner. I would definitely stay here again.
