Situated at the ocean's edge, Castle Kona Bali Kai offers a unique lodging experience in the sunniest spot on Hawaii's Big Island. You can pull up a lounge chair where white sand and black lava rock mingle among tide pools. Enjoy the shade of palm trees will you listen to the surf. If you are lucky, you might spot a Hawaiian green sea turtle grazing in the water or sleeping in the sand. The lava rocks shield the beach from waves and help to create small wading pools ideal for children.

Castle Kona Bali Kai has affordable, airy, and comfortable studio, one-, two-, and three-bedroom oceanfront suites on the makai (ocean) side, as well as studio and one-bedroom units with ocean or mountain views on the mauka (mountain) side. Makai units are cooled with fans and the consistent ocean breeze, while most mauka units have air conditioning. Many of the units have a washer/dryer and there is an onsite laundromat for your convenience. Keep your kitchen stocked with fresh fruits and vegetables via the Island Grocery Delivery service, or from nearby Alii Garden's Marketplace. There is also a convenience store located just next door. If you are in the mood to cook, you will have access to multiple barbeques on the property, some with oceanfront views overlooking the tide pools.

On-site amenities include Miller's Surf Shop, the award winning Poke Shack (serving incredible fresh poke!), and a discount activities desk. The friendly front-desk staff can help you with your needs and give you the inside tips for "local" knowledge.

Almost every day ends with a spectacular sunset, so you can understand why Alii was the avenue of Hawaii's royalty. As you look for your special Kona condo, remember that Castle Kona Bali Kai provides endless adventures in any direction.

Kona Bali Kai 312 is wonderfully updated, and has an awesome view!
Kelly H, Fort Wayne, IN

I am staying in Kona Bali Kai 312 this very moment, drinking coffee, overlooking the ocean. I saw this review before booking, and am compelled to alleviate any fears others may have of booking it, as I was a bit worried myself. It has been wonderfully updated since this person's review. Granite and stainless kitchen, completely modernized bathrooms, and new furniture on the patio. It is managed by a private person (Holly Cunningham, excellent), and I believe is no longer one of the rooms that is handed out by the front desk if booking with the Kona Bali Kai resort/front desk. I could be wrong, but I booked it directly through Flipkey. The only drawback is that it does not have air conditioning (as is the case with most Hawaii properties). There are ceiling fans in every room, and they also provide additional fans that plug in. For me, it was a bit too warm. We keep our home at a constant 70 degrees, and in the evenings/early morning hours in January it was warmer than that by a few degrees (maybe 74?), despite the doors and windows being open. It is also of note that the wave sounds could be heard all night (since our sliding doors were open), which I loved, and slept easily to. My husband, on the other hand, startled whenever there was a bigger then normal crash. He ended up sleeping in the second bedroom because of it, which is cooler and has a TV (the master does not). He then slept like a baby the rest of the week. Even without the air conditioning, I would probably return to this unit. The view is amazing, and it is clean and well-supplied. There are turtles right below the balcony, which is very private from about 8PM to 6AM. From 6AM to 6PM (sunset), there are surfers in the water looking towards the shore, and from 6PM to 8PM there are people using the gas grills below, cooking their dinners. After that, you feel alone with the world!

Pathetic Experience ! Room 333

Not even 1 star , office hours are from 9-5 pm so it’s self checkin Then these are Holliday suites and ‘not’ a resort of any sort Aircons wasn’t working properly and had to wake up at night to reset it At time of checkin , had to pay $52 for some cleaning bill for 1 night stay !!! It’s a ripoff What a terrible service

Unit #222 was excellent

Renting through VRBO, we were really happy with our suite and the property manager Holly. The suite was clean, tidy, well stocked and most importantly, right on the ocean. Parking was easy and access to town and beaches was good. We heard the occasional traffic from the unit, otherwise all you could hear was the ocean. It had WiFi, TV, phone. No question we would go back if we're in Kona.

Lovely spot #405 at KBK

This is our second time staying in unit #405 at KBK. We stayed for 10days. We booked through owner on VRBO. The place is so well equipped with everything you need to cook, including loads of spices that previous renters have shared. It makes it so much easier to leave what you don’t use and contribute. A few places we’ve stayed have had absolutely nothing so it makes a week holiday very expensive if you are buying spices, oil etc. The condo has everything including boogie boards, snorkels etc. The place is not air conditioned however has fans in all ceilings and a few stand ones to help circulate the air. I would highly recommend the spot. Mike the owner is fantastic to deal with.

Great location right on the water.

I love this place because of its great location right on the water on Alii Drive. Three stories high above a parking garage. Great small pool and a million dollar view. The decks are huge... no air conditioning so listen to the waves all night long. Nice people here and close to everything. Clean and quiet except for the occasional screaming kids in the pool.
