We loved every moment of our stay. We stayed in two units. We were first on the 4th floor (402), with unobstructed views of the ocean and dolphins. The unit has recently been renovated, and has everything one could need or even want to feel at home. Even over Thanksgiving holiday, the property was quiet, the management was extremely pleasant...

It is great to hear that you really enjoyed your stay at Kona Bali Kai. As for the pool area we have an eight foot high fence around the pool area and the gate is locked by our security at 10 pm, when the pool closes. Relating to the blockage of your view it took the palm tree about 15... More

We stayed 15 days and could not have been happier! This resort is right on the beach with some of the best views on the Big Island - even the parking lot has a great view. What is nice about the resort is the location. It is south of Kona Town so the traffic is not bad. We had an... More

Working with Mike on his penthouse suite #405 Kona Bali Kai (#3565821 on Homeaway.com and vrbo.com) was the best easiest and best decision I have made when making rental plans. Mike's communication about the rental process, activities around the island, recommendations, and even the properties and amenities can not be topped. Mike made sure we had everything at our finger... More

We rented a condo from a private owner on the third floor with ocean front. Perfect! The front room and master bedroom open to the lanai with double sliding doors. We left them open 24/7. Slept to and woke to the sound of the waves. Morning was coffee on the lanai watching the surfers. Sunset views. Condo was newly renovated.... More

We rented this condo for a vacation in November. The complex is very well kept with bbq by the water and nice pool area. The condo room looked new with granite countertops, tile flooring and new looking kitchen. This place has a great view from the deck seeing surfers out all day long. All in all a great experience.

We rented a condo here for a week for our wedding anniversary. The condo we chose was very well furnished, was clean and had all the amenities we needed (including beach chairs and boogie boards!). This unit is managed by the wonderful Holly Cunningham. Holly couldn't have been more helpful. From reading the other reviews I guess some of the... More

Stayed there for a staycation with the family. They "upgraded" our room to an oceanfront unit which had no AC. It was steaming and humid so i asked for the partial ocean view room that i previously checked in with that had living room AC. For one thing Partial Ocean View is barely partial as these units are across the... More

The vertical blinds did not shut properly and street light shone in all night. In defense of the property manager she... More

I came here with my wife during our honeymoon at the big island. We got the apartment #334 and we stayed almost 2 weeks. We were extremely happy of our apartment: clean, nice kitchen, TV, comfortable bed and we didn't miss anything. We have spent a very pleasant holiday in here. We got the swimming pool and we had many... More
