Thank you for sharing your studio condo that had everything we could want for privacy and expansive sunset views, the sound of the gentle waves, a deck that we enjoyed endlessly, and well appointed kitchen. I never thought I would comment on a bathroom...with beautiful nature tones granite on the walls... even with a small footprint, it was wonderful - water could be set to indulge you from many directions. The high ceilings throughout and versatile fixtures are great for all size guests. The king size bed was positioned in the room to allow you to lay down directly facing the ocean/sunsets, or the TV or the book case, or the open room/refreshing fan. We typically try new places with each visit to the islands - but from now on we are looking forward to staying here again and again! We thoroughly loved everything about this wonderful escape!!! The owner provided us with lots of information before we arrived and in the condo there were useful thoughtfully written (w/ humor) guide books that helped us map out where we would explore across the island. We did laundry there, cooked meals on most days, appreciated the ice maker, found the place well equipped, and we donated a new square skillet and some supplies. The owners have really created a beautiful, cozy, romantic, relaxing, and nourishing environment with personal touches that you notice more each day, especially as the light changes. Thank you for sharing your extra special retreat!!!

Kona Bali Kai Condo

  • 5 of 5

We spent a week at 425 Kona Bali Kai condo, first week of December 2017. We absolutely loved it! Each night we slept with the patio door open and slept to the sound of the surf crashing on the rocks... I haven't slept so well in years! The condo has everything one needs for preparing meals, and we dined alfresco on the lanai with the best view in Kona! The bed and furnishings were completely comfortable. Each afternoon we reveled in watching sea turtles enter a tide pool in front of the condo, and watch them play and crawl up on the rocks and sun themselves. The condo is just minutes from restaurants & shopping, but them you come back for the view! Thanks Mike for sharing your little spot of paradise!

Unbeatable view, great location, very clean and cozy

  • 5 of 5

I spent three nights in early November. From the lanai, all you see is ocean. The unit is only about 20 feet from the shoreline, and you don't see the ground from the 4th floor, just the water and sky. Located about 4 miles from downtown tourist area and about 3 miles from a good shopping center on the south end of the road. Kitchen and bath recently remodeled, entire unit very clean. Only glitch was with the internet/cable service not working, but those things happen and the owner was responsive.

Owner's Response: Aloha and thanks for taking the time to write a review on our condo. Indeed the views are ideal from this condo and many guests noted in our guest book that the view is what keeps them coming again and again to the condo. We also have recently upgraded all the furniture and remodeled the kitchen and bathroom. The Islands main internet provider recently changed owners and have caused nearly everyone on the Island to have issues. We have received a new cable box and things are now running smoothly with our high speed internet and digital cable. Mahalo, Mike Watson

We loved the view

  • 5 of 5

It was great to hear the waves crashing right outside while you sleep. It was close to shopping and beaches. Nice location. It was a little higher priced than others but worth it for the view.
