Hi, I'm Mike!

My wife and I began visiting Hawaii about 20 years ago. When we started coming over to the islands two to three times a year we began talking about buying our own place in paradise. We initially bought a one-bedroom condo that was across the street from the beach, but without an ocean view. When we decided to buy a two-bedroom oceanfront condo, we fell in love with the view at the Kona Bali Kai (surfers, sunsets, turtles, dolphins and whales) and the sound of the surf crashing below our lanai.

We hope you enjoy sharing our home on the Big Island.

Here is my property:

Our vacation home rental in Kona

“ Excellent ”
December 27, 2015
This vacation home rental was perfect for us. The location was excellent; close to beaches and a very short drive to shops and restaurants. The owner was very attentive to our needs, ensuring everything was ok upon our arrival. Listening to the ocean with the lanai doors open was very relaxing. We would highly recommend this vacation home rental.
