My husband and our daughter have moved from the Washington State in 2006. We absolutely love our live on the island and want to share it with our guests.

The room is one bedroom with a small kitchen. The pull out sofa could host two more people though it is kind of tight.
the room is really clean. the coin laundry is across the street. the beach is across the street. we saw turtle there.
with kids around, you may want to book a beach front resort so they will have some night life without leaving the hotel. otherwise this is really a quiet and neat place to stay.
We had a great stay at the Kona Bali Kai! It was a convenient location for us, far enough away from the hustle and bustle of the tourist area but close enough to walk down (20-30 mins) for dinner or drinks. The condo was clean and well stocked for a Hawaiian vacation. Don't miss out on the sunsets, tide pools and turtle watching in the evening across the street; Grab some poke on the way!
Great 1 bedroom, literally minutes (seconds???) from a very cool beach full of sea turtles and tide pools. We ate on the beach a couple of times while there for a week, amazing sunset views, perfect place to grill up a steak and watch the sun go down. Beach is also a popular local surf spot, it seems, so lots of activity in the water when the tide is up.
Pros: Only a few minutes from downtown Kailua Kona or White Sands beach. Lots of other great little beaches close to it along Ali'i Dr. Trolley stop right out front if you want to travel that way too. Might be the perfect location to be almost close to everything. Heading south on Ali'i Dr. and taking the Mamalahoa Bypass is a great way to miss morning traffic when heading out of Kona for touristy stuff, or avoiding afternoon traffic when coming back. Perfect size for a couple.. While not exactly child-proof, it was plenty safe for our 1-year-old.
Cons: It's a 3rd floor walk-up, keep that in mind if traveling with people that can't do a lot of stairs. It was fine for us because by the time the one-year-old made it to the top she was ready for a nap. While the condo is perfect for a couple, it does get a little cozy (claustraphobic?) if you have a couple of kids with you, especially if one of those kids is an 18 year old who moodily camps out in the living room.
Overall, I had to nit-pick to find a couple of cons to put down here and there was nothing about this condo that made me think of giving it less than 5 stars.

Kristina's Kona condo was great! Everything was very clean when we arrived and looked just like the set up in the pictures. The kitchen was well stocked with dishes, cooking utensils, etc., and the bedroom was very comfortable. The condo is about 2-3 miles from downtown Kona which was great for watching the Iron Man Championships. The neighborhood was quiet and safe, and very close to the water. I would definitely stay here again! Thanks, Kristina!
This is the second stay for us.
The host family was very very kind, and they supported our vacation.
They gave us lots of happiness and relief with smile.
Our children played with your daughters and enjoyed it.
They had a good experience with many memories.
(rode the swing of the garden together, made an animal with origami and rode a bicycle....)
And the host family always answered to us kindly that we are not good at English.
We absolutely stay here again.
Thank you for everything Kristina and your family!
Kristina place is awesome! Literally in the beach and in kona Kailua which is the place to be in big island! Kristina was the perfect host and everything was clean and convenient!
