Our Kona Bali Kai (Unit 305) 2 Bedroom/2 Bathroom with Full Width Lanai is DIRECT OCEAN FRONT with an underhand rock toss to the sea wall. You can't get any closer and stay dry.
If you want DIRECT Ocean Front, DIRECTLY in front of the most popular Island surf break in a TOTALLY remodeled unit at an unbeatable value you have found it. Our view in front of the surf break is world class. Our annual occupancy is normally ~ 90% so book early, high season is normally full, well over a year in advance.
IMPORTANT NOTE: The 2 night minimum only applies for stays next to an existing booking. The minimum is normally 6 nights unless you book next to an existing booking. (Ironman and xmas stays have a 10 night minimum. Due to software limitations of the VRBO system we need to write this out - the system can't handle this automatically. If you book less than the minimum, not next to an existing reservation, we will likely ask you to cancel your reservation. Please, please email me with questions on this policy if you have any.
Note: The KBK pool/pool deck area was refurbished during the summer of 2017.
Our late 2010 purchased condo underwent a complete (demo'd to block walls and rebuilt over a 3 month period) $75,000 remodel with the work managed by the retired Project Manager Owner.

The famous (site of frequent competitions) Banyan Surf Break is again DIRECTLY in front of our unit so you'll enjoy watching the surfers while relaxing on the lanai. Our unit is on the convenient 3rd building level with free ground level parking and no steps to unit with use of the elevator.
The Living Room and Master Bedroom each utilize floor to ceiling sliders accessing the spacious ocean front lanai. The sliders are double glass so you can control the ocean surf noise level in the condo by opening or shutting the doors. Custom shoji type silhouette sliding glass panels (Unique to Kona Bali Kai) separate the Greatroom from the MBR.
The accessible coastline in front of Kona Bali Kai has tide pools and sandy areas - perfect for poking around on a lazy afternoon. Free propane fired outdoor barbeques are available for guests and a turtle (Hono) visitor or two is a frequent sight.
Condo square footing including lanai is about 1,000'. You will notice VRBO ads for KBK 2BR units show different sizes. All 2 BR KBK units are the same size to my knowledge! The interior is just over 800' and the full width lanai is about 200 square feet.
White Sands County Park is 1 mile south, Kahaluu snorkeling beach/bay is 2 miles south and there is a great small hidden beach a short walk away I'll tell you about in my client letter upon booking.
We live a mile south of KBK most of the year at an ocean view condo we managed as a vacation rental for 10 years before retiring and moving to Kona in 2009. We understand how important our guests vacation time is and do our utmost to provide a positive experience. You are dealing directly with the owners (not a Property Management Company) when you book directly with us, the owners.
