First off, let me say that I considered giving this a 5-star rating, and under normal circumstances, I would have. However, the pool was not available due to construction, and we were not notified of this until late April, having booked in January. Also the condo literally closed escrow, with a different property management, on the day we arrived.
There was confusion between the property management and Kona Bali Kai staff regarding our parking passes and pool use (we were supposed to be able to use a different condo pool). It was funny! Each one claimed it was the other entity's responsibility. We decided not to worry and just have fun!
The lanai view is stunning! We even saw sea turtles from it. There is even an ocean view from the master shower and toilet! The kitchen had everything and there were plenty of towels. There were only two beach chairs, and one decent boogie board. You may want to bring your own TP! We were allotted a total of 4 cheap rolls for a family of 4, for 7 nights!
But we had a great time! The little beach is a local hangout, and there are some amazing surfers and boogie boarders to watch. It's a short drive to various beaches, and I did miss having a beach we could walk to anytime.
