    a guest from Surrey, BC recommends this vacation rental

    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'.

    • Manager Responded on 5/27/2017

      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.

    Jason H from Fort Collins, CO recommends this vacation rental

    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.

    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.

    a guest from Marshall, WA recommends this vacation rental

    Stayed in this condo for 28 nights. Wonderful location and view, all appliances and plumbing worked as they should, clean and pleasant. The condo was cool enough with sliders open and fans on. Had seen earlier reviews saying the mattress was like sleeping on rocks. We saw no problem at all with the bed so maybe it had been replaced or our opinion was different. Overall, for the price, we would stay again. On the negative side and nothing against the condo itself, but the smokers (and there seem to be many) like to light up right in front of the unit. The smoke drifts up and onto the lanai. We slept with the slider open to the ocean every night and waking at 0630 to the smell of cigarette smoke coming in the room does not mix well with the sound of the waves and birds welcoming a new day. I talked to security about the concern. Security said they talk to the people when seen smoking and tell them of the designated smoking area at the end of the complex, but are usually ignored. Maybe posting something in the area would help, but who wants to spoil such a beautiful view with a NO SMOKING sign.

    The location could not have been better. Our major complaint was the the mattress. The mattress was way too soft. It made getting a good night sleep quite difficult. The condo was clean but could use a bit of remodeling and upgrading. The few minor things that needed fixing were taken care of quickly and professionly. Would stay here again. Minor facial tissues and 1 hand sized bar of soap in bathroom.

    We spent a lot of time on the lanai relaxing and watching the turtles, the waves, and the local surfers. The unit was older but homey ans fitted out with extras like snorkel gear and detergent. We liked the Poke Shack downstairs and the nearby small grocery. The location was close to several beach parks and the Keauhou shopping centre.
    The pool was refreshing, the WiFi was fast, and the overall impression was relaxed and hassle-free. One suggestion: provide a small booklet of condo tips and local interest stops for renters' information.

    We have never rented an ocean front condo before and this was definitely the way to go. Loved the private beach, the security was great. The views were awesome. This unit was clean, had your own washer and dryer in the unit. Had everything you needed, including some things we weren't expecting. I cant get the ratings to work on your survey, I would give the general condition a 4 as there are some minor things to fix, 5 for location,4 for property cleanliness, and 5 for professionalism of property company. I would definitely stay here again.

    We love Kona Bali Kai 317- the view is great and it's so nice to have a proper homebase to return to after each day's adventures. I really wish the owners would get a new mattress in the master bedroom as it is like sleeping on bricks. We also could not find the guest book this time we stayed, no matter where we looked, so had to email for the wifi password- perhaps pinning a list of frequently used phone numbers, FAQs, and the wifi password to the side of the fridge would be a good idea?

    Nichole Z from Apache Junction, AZ recommends this vacation rental

    I LOVED Kona Bali Kai and plan on coming again. It was amazing to fall asleep and wake up every morning to the sounds of the ocean. I could view the sunset from the lanai and were greeted with sea turtles every morning.
    Pros-further down than the tourist trap, private lanai, ocean views, adequate parking, friendly staff.
    Cons-I assume due to salt damage...sliding doors hard to open and shut, TV connections worn (yes we actually did attempt to watch a movie), washer lock made it hard to get our clothes out, snorkeling set doesn't work so buy/rent your own.
    Honestly, there were so many positives that those little inconveniences didn't even matter. I'd rent this place again in a heartbeat!

    There were some prolms with the washer and the refrigerator. The table on the Lanai isn't large enough to seat 4 people for dinner 9(it is is like a small pub table and not a patio type table). The pots, pand and skillets are great for anyone who likes to cook. The knives were sharp!!! I think this unit could use some updating, as compared to other units we have stayed in at Kona Bali Kai. The views are terrific.

    The unit was in a great spot, although not walking distance to town. Great view and the crashing waves to lull us to sleep was fantastic. The unit itself was very clean, but dated. Badly needs an upgrade. The bed was hard as a rock and the linens were very cheap. DVD player did not work and no land line.. Wifi was provided and the cooler and beach supplies were great. Had in room washer and dryer so that was a plus. Had a great stay on the island and you are not in the room much, but definitely could use upgrade all around, ESP bed and bedding.

    The oceanfront view from the lanai is amazing. The condo is a couple miles from the main town area so you're far enough away, but close enough to drive or take a cab in if you want to enjoy a night out.

    It was convenient to have Da Poke Shack downstairs as we enjoyed a couple meals from there.

    The bed in the master bedroom was a bit firm for my liking and the furniture is a bit dated, but those would be my only very minor complaints.

    Have stayed several times at Kona Bali Kai and love the place. Units 317 sits right above the pool where the turtles hang out. From your lanai you see dolpins, turtles and in season whales. You are close to shopping, resturants and great snorkeling sites. Compared to other units at KBK the unit is a bit dated. But who cares, you'll spend all your time on the lanai. We love coming to this unit and will continue to return in the future.

The only thing that made it a bit less than perfect is one bedroom faces the street and outside corridor with little sound insulation: quiet enough at night but less so after 7 or 8 AM.

The staff were so friendly and helpful even though we were not with their particular company. Paul even came up to our unit and helped me with computer problem which was greatly appreciated.

    Can't walk into town (it's probably 3-4 miles) and not on top floor, but as long as you can sleep with the pounding sounds of ocean waves, you should like this place. Wonderful sunsets, frequent sea turtles just 30' away, and easy to get to the main highway to reach other parts of the Big Island.
