Recent Kona Bali Kai reviews

  • Loved our stay here!

    "This was our first visit to the Big Island, and we spent a week here celebrating my birthday. We're not exactly the resort variety, and we like to immerse ourselves in the local culture. With that in mind, we found this place to be perfect in that aspect. Our favorite things about the unit: - As was mentioned in the other reviews, the large lanai. We spent most of our mornings and evenings here enjoying the view and the sounds of the surf. The lanai overlooks the famous Banyan Beach surf spot, and we enjoyed watching the surfers. The view from the living room and bedroom were excellent as well. - "Da Poke Shack" is right downstairs! This place is consistently ranked as some of the best poke on the Big Island, and it was the first place we ate upon arriving. - The unit is fully stocked (especially the kitchen). We're "foodies" so we didn't spend much time preparing food here. However, there were a few occasions where we made breakfast, as well as some fresh Kona coffee (there is a grinder and coffee maker), and we found everything we needed. We could have just as easily prepared food here all week with how well stocked it was. We also found the washer/dryer very useful as well as the laundry basket. - The free Wifi. - The air conditioner in the bedroom. We stayed here at the end of July, so there were a few nights we ran it when it was especially hot/humid. As somewhat of a side note, I believe somebody in another review mentioned it was on a 2 hour timer. It is actually a 12 hour one. - The Big Island Revealed book under the coffee table (among the many other useful guide books). This especially helped us with our exploration of the island. - The ample parking. A couple of other notes: - As a friendly note to future renters, the ceiling fans in the bedrooms are on speed switches with a scale of 0-4 (with 0 being off). In the excitement of everything, we set it at 4 the first night thinking this was the fastest setting. They only ran at medium speed though. It didn't occur to us until the next morning that 1 is actually the fastest setting. - Liane (the owner) was very responsive, helpful and friendly. We will undoubtedly consider her units first when we return to the Big Island. Thank you for making our stay a wonderful one!"

  • Awesome Place

    "We were in Kona for our daughter’s wedding, and absolutely loved our five nights at Mike’s oceanfront condo in the Kona Bali Kai. You look at and hear the ocean from the living room as well as the master bedroom. Hearing the surf at night and waking to the sun gleaming on the palm trees is absolute heaven!! The condo is on the 4th floor with a lanai overlooking the water---you can’t get much closer!! From the lanai we watched sea turtles, porpoise, surfers, fishermen, canoe races, and sunsets. Mike’s list of things to do in the area was of great help and very much appreciated. The condo is well equipped with everything you need including beach towels, beach chairs, and umbrellas. There is also a clean and well maintained BBQ and picnic table on the lawn just steps away from the ocean, and a pool for your use on the premises. The condo has been kept immaculately clean and is beautifully decorated. It was unusually hot, so we appreciated the air-conditioning from time to time; but most of the time we just had the sea breeze flowing through the condo. Also, it is only about a 5 minute drive to Kona’s historic village area. We have already reserved our next stay for 2016, but will be staying longer next time.......can’t wait!! Thanks for opening up your house to us Mike!!"

  • Beautiful Condo with Amazing Ocean Views!

    "We enjoyed our stay at the Banyan Tree #302. The condo is beautiful decorated and has breathtaking views of the ocean. The condo was well stocked and had everything we needed from kitchen supplies to beach gear - towels, snorkeling equipment, boogie boards, and chairs. The tips from Janice and Robert on things to do and places to eat were so helpful. I loved the Big Island Revealed book. So many great tips and advice. The Banyan Tree was very conveniently located for our excursions going north and south along the coast. We enjoyed watching the surfers. We attempted to ride the waves but be warned it is pretty rough out there. If you go out make sure to use the stairs. We went out by the small sandy beach and got caught by the rocks. We saw turtles which was a treat! The only negative is that when we were there it was humid. Even with the windows open and the fans on it would get a little stuffy when we were sleeping. Overall we loved the condo!"
